Mother Mayhem's night out

. October 29, 2012.

“You can truly unwind and have the whole place to yourself,” says Kevin Charles, artistic director of three salon locations. I can’t remember having complete privacy in the bathroom with three kids and an aging Corgi, let alone an entire salon. Any mother would jump at the chance to stop playing “taxi driver,” “life coach” and “domestic engineer” by relaxing at Charles’ newest spot, on Main Street in downtown Sylvania (next to J&G Pizza Palace), which officially opens Thursday, November 8. The new venue will focus on exclusive private parties and ‘girls’ nights out’ gatherings. “We are partnering with Treo Restaurant to offer ‘Girl’s Night Out Packages.’ Packages can be customized to suit each group’s needs. We pair full salon services with a full dining experience or simple services with drinks and dessert afterwards,” Charles said. Haircuts and colors, Keratin treatments, Klix Brand hair extensions, make-up to manicures and gel nails; so many options! I brought a group of mothers to test drive the new facility (all in the name of journalism, of course) for a night of food, fun and, as one mother put it, “mild debauchery.” A few hours of pampering later we’re big believers that sometimes the best therapy for surviving the high octane profession called motherhood is to be the one on the receiving end of care, even if that means leaving the house and paying someone to do it!
