Good morning and happy Saturday my beauties! Today I’m sharing with you a little about an awesome pamper day I had at Malva House of Hair a couple of weeks ago. I seriously had the best time!
The services provided by Malva House of Hair were complimentary to me, as always all opinions are honest and my own.
You guys know how important I believe it is to make time for ourselves. Specially as mamas, it is so easy for us to just focus so much on our families that we might forget a little about ourselves, and that is never a good thing! So when Nathan, the owner of Malva House of Hair, contacted me and offered me a mommy-day, I was all…um yass!
Facial & Microdermabrasion
So my day at Malva House started off with Shayne, she is an amazing medical esthetician and provides skincare for women, men and teens. Can I just also say that she is just stunning and the sweetest <3 I truly enjoyed my time with her!
So she did a custom facial on me and microdermabrasion. My skin has never felt or looked better! But let me back up for a second. When you first meet with her she has you fill out a short questionnaire so she can get to know your skin, your wants and any possible allergies or sensitiveness you may have. When you walk into her relaxing studio room, you get a robe and then lay underneath some super comfy and warm blankets.
She then massaged my face, applied creams that were cooling, some warm clothes and massaged my face. It. Was. Heaven! Many of you asked about microdermabrasion…let me just say it does not hurt. It simply felt like a tiny vacuum all over your face. That is it. To me there was no pain at all.
My skin felt so soft and was glowing! In talking to Shayne, she explained that it is a good idea to get a facial or the microdermabrasion about once a month. Obviously depending on your skin need’s she will give you an individualized time frame.
Pro-tip: Always wear sun screen! She says it is the number one way of being able to protect your skin. So ladies and gents, get your SPF on!

I Got My Hair Did
Next, I met with Kat she is a senior stylist at Malva House and just a super fun person! We had great conversations and she is amazing!
She asked me what I had in mind for my hair change and honestly, I had no idea. After talking about what my daily hair routine is like and the products I used we decided on a long bob, or medium length hair. She lightened up a few pieces around my hair with a balayage technique and then she added some pinks towards the ends and pretty much all over my head.
Guys, I loved it! I really liked the subtle change and the pink hair was so fun!
I am loving this shorter length, it takes me way less time to get ready in the mornings and the color is amazing! The pink faded out already, for some reason my hair rejected the pink (why hair?) lol!
Pro Tip: So Kat emphasized the importance of using some kind of heat protectant (because I do use heat on my hair pretty much every day) To apply, start off with applying the product all over hands almost as if it was lotion then run your fingers through your entire hair evenly. This way you avoid applying all the product on the roots which then ends up in your hair looking oily!
