There’s no better time to celebrate the calming and healing abilities of nature than on Earth Day. Spring is in the air, the birds are chirping, and we’ve compiled a few awesome ideas to help you appreciate Mother Nature this Earth Day and every day.
1. Get Balayage from The Bird House Hair Salon in NYC
The Bird House Hair Salon is a one-of-a-kind, boutique-style beauty salon that will make you feel like you’re inside a bohemian bird’s nest. The walls are lined with gorgeous gold twig designs, plus unique lighting fixtures that will remind you of bright, blooming spring bulbs. The atmosphere looks and smells far from the usual chemical-induced hair salon—Instead, the cozy salon smells of fresh air and flowers. It is even full of live plants, which make you truly feel like you’re outside enjoying nature’s fresh air during your salon day.
Their relaxing, down-to-earth atmosphere–with fresh herbal tea included–is paired with superior services. The Bird House is home to only the most experienced hair stylists who know exactly how to dye and style your hair to bring out the best you. When I arrived for my appointment, I had no idea what I wanted to have done to my hair. Their stylists were able to look at my hair, ask me a couple questions, and then make a recommendation for what to do to bring out my best features and make my hair look better than ever. When they were done, I was so excited and surprised to see that they had made my hair look incredible with such little information and input from me.
