Meehandering the 312: Gordon Salon

In pushing for self care and pampering myself this summer, I recently made an appointment at Gordon Salon in Lakeview back before I moved out of Chicago. I opted for a blowout and one of their signature add ons, a perfecting plant peel. Gordon Salon is an Aveda salon which, big plus, is naturally derived and cruelty free. I’ve always been a big fan of Aveda products and try to seek out their salons when looking to get services done.

My appointment started out with a quick head massage with one of their composition oils, and in true fashion I opted for the lavender and sage blend, stress fix. And yes, I absolutely ended up taking advantage of their sale that month and bought it 20% off.


From there we headed back to the sink where I got my hair washed for my blowout and started my perfecting peel. It’s a 97% naturally derived dual-exfoliation proven to smooth, brighten and revive all skin types. It helps re-texturize skin, smooth fine, dry lines, refine the look of pores, and restore radiance. And boy did it- my skin has seriously never looked so good as it did after this facial. I’ve been trying to find an Aveda salon in Cleveland to get this done at.

Because I had a weekend ahead of me with a visitor, I went for a simple blowout styled as low maintenance as possible, and it turned out incredible. Even after kayaking on Saturday I still had plenty of volume.


I left Gordon feeling completely refreshed. My skin still looks noticeably better, and the next Chicago visit definitely calls for a facial and blowout.
