Beginning of this month the boy and I went on vacation. We boarded a ship at Port Canaveral and set sail for Half Moon Cay…

more about my vacation later… there is a good story here… I promise…

Salon, hair, spa, violet, nicoledana, hair productsWhat is Avalanche? Its a super cute salon located in the small town of Trappe, PA. I bring up my vacation because while we were on the ship, getting ready to play a mean game of bingo, I was standing in line and a lady in her late 40s tapped my shoulder. With her Southern accent she asked me, “ma’am where do you get your hair done?” I was caught completely off guard. I’m sure I looked like a total moron with my blank stare. As I stood there, I thought to myself, we are 1500 miles away from my home in Trappe PA and I have no idea what to say, so I just came out with it… “well I am from PA.. so I get my hair done at a salon down the street from my home, about 30 minutes out side of Philadelphia.” She laughed and said “Oh i thought you had it done here on the boat.” She complimented how flattering it was and was really hoping that her daughter [sitting next to her] could get her hair done, just like mine. She said “I have never seen such a beautiful cut and the color is just amazing.” We both chuckled and continued chatting…

Everyday of my life, at least twice a day, someone, regardless of where I am or what I am doing, comments on the beauty of my hair.

A little about the salon and the chick who is responsible for the cut and color: Avalanche Salon & Spa

The salon and spa is located in the heart of Trappe, PA in a 200 year old historic building on Main Street. With its rustic decor and Colorado Ski lodge accents, Avalanche is very different and innovative. Owners, Stephanie and Sal, have created a very relaxing environment that stands out from your everyday high-end salon. Each hair dresser attends trainings to help keep up with the ever changing industry trends. The amount of knowledge at Avalanche sets them apart from the rest of the salons in the area.

My hair is cut and colored by no one other then Stephanie herself. She carries her own line of shampoos and conditioners, forHair products, volumizer, avalance, salon, spa, hair various hair types, that keeps your hair shiny and beautiful. For the last six months, I have been getting my hair colored a beautiful violet with platinum blond highlights. Initially, I was a blond. Never wanting to take the leap and become a brunette. With Stephanie’s experience and in depth knowledge of hair color, I took the plunge. I am so happy I took her advice. The violet compliments my skin tone and really fits my personality very well. I will never go blond again.

As I mentioned previously, Avalanche, launched their own line of shampoos, conditioners as well as styling products, for both men and women, a year ago. The shampoo for color treated hair is awesome. I use it as well as the  the volume infusion and I love them! My hair is extremely soft and full. With the growing success of the haircare, Stephanie decided it was time to launch her line of make up — BASH!  BASH as well as Good Girl & Bad Boy haircare products are sold exclusively in the salon.

Everyone always asks about money. How much do you pay for your hair? I’m sure its very expensive? Most high end salons are out-ragiously priced and rarely offer deals. Avalanche is reasonably priced and also offers a loyalty card with a point system. I have saved so much money using this card, its absolutely insane not to use it.

If you are looking for something fresh, something new or just a change from your everyday look — this is the place to go. With so many other salon services such as massages, waxing, facials, make-up application, body treatments, nail services, massage services, and Skye Boutique for all your trendy shopping needs, there is no need to go anywhere else.
