Gilt-y pleasures

Love a bargain? So do I! That's why over the next few months, I'll be scouting out some of the hottest beauty and fashion bargains for you with one of the leaders in the industry: Gilt Groupe. Up today? A local deal in Boston!

Salon Mario Russo

I don't know about you, but I love a beauty discount. Staying pretty doesn't come cheap after all, and whenever I get the chance to check out a new beauty hotspot in my area at a major discount, I'm game. So when Gilt City recently told me about an offer they had on their site at Boston's Salon Mario Russo, I was there before you could say "blowout."

I love exploring my city whenever I get the chance, and Gilt City's "best of the best" offers help a gal explore new treasures (beauty and beyond!) in her own backyard. So how did my experience measure up? Let's find out!

The info

  • The salon: Salon Mario Russo
  • The location: Boston's renowned Newbury Street (the spa also has a location in the city's Fan Pier district)
  • The stylist: Demetri Papadopoulos
  • The deal: A conditioning treatment and blowout for a mere $55!

The verdict

Newbury Street is one of my favorite spots in Boston. There's just something special about the area, and it's never more beautiful than in the fall when the leaves are changing. So I'm always excited to get an excuse to venture out to the Back Bay area.

This was easily one of the best blowouts I've ever had! Demetri was so friendly and easy to talk to and did an impeccable job with my hair. As a curly gal with bangs, I always enjoy having someone else smooth out my hair from time to time just for a change! By the time I was done at the salon, my hair was beyond shiny and smooth and had loads of bounce. I'd call that a great day.

Quick Tip
