These Boys Will Make You Look Hot

Generally speaking, I’m a little nervous when it comes to my hair.  You see, I have a a very thick, very unruly mane that needs special attention.  I’m also skeptical of stylists that say things like “trust me, bobs are soooo cute!” because in reality, on me, they’re not.  So when I walked into Xac Anthony salon in NYC last week, I was blown away (no pun intended) by how great my experience was!

First, the whole place has a zen-like spa feel that’s somehow balanced out by the lively staff.  If you love fabulous gay men the way I do, this is your mecca.  I’m tempted to go back just to find some new extra friends.  Anthony, co-owner, is probably one of the sweetest and most lovable humans I’ve ever encountered.  His partner in crime, and hair-master extraordinaire, Xac, is gorgeous and can make ANYONE look gorgeous.  But on this encounter, I sat with the super-experienced Yuval (who after having met him, I secretly wish we were related so I could have a reason to see him more often than just cuts and blowouts).  Yuval had me washed with a paraben and sulfate-free shampoo that smelled so good, I wanted to eat it.  And Xac Anthony is the only place in NYC to get it!  He then took my lifeless locks into a new dimension by adding a ton of super-smooth layers (which for my semi-curly mess was a miracle), and only took off about 2 inches of total length.  Brilliant!  I got amazing shape, incredible bounce, I can still pull my hair back, and somehow, my hair is way shinier than it’s ever been before.  BRAVO!

Xac Anthony Salon, I love this place!

Here’s something even more fabulous…

If you book an appointment at Xac Anthony and mention my name, or The Luxury Spot, they’ll give you 25% OFF any hair service!  Considering the down economy, why don’t you give yourself a little holiday cheer with the best cuts/color/blowouts in town, at a fraction of the cost!  And from personal experience, I totally recommend booking Yuval!
