Sananda Spa & Salon...A Experience That Creates Joy & Happiness by Design.

Sananda Spa & SalonFrom time to time, one has the fortunate privilege of being introduced to a person, business or service that exceeds your expectations. My introduction to Sananda Spa & Salon in Grand Rapids, Michigan is just such an experience! 

However, the path to this connection is often littered with dashed aspirations and less than hoped for outcomes.  Such was my experience in locating a good hair dresser in Grand Rapids, Michigan This makes the discovery even sweeter. 

It may seem like a "small thing" to get a good haircut and style.  But just ask John Edwards who has suffered endless media attention and focus on his $400 "doo", a good style... is no small matter.  Although I can't relate to the price tag, I sympathize with his desire to have a special touch on his manicured tresses.

Every '"girlfriend" knows that finding a good stylist who doesn't keep you in the shop for half a day is an event worthy of Celebration!  Most of us have resigned ourselves to the fact that you either spend the time or put up with sub-standard styling.

Well, my putting up came to a dramatic halt after several years with my former hairdresser.  As she washed my hair, after coming in late for the appointment, she began to tell me how she had sent a lady to the hospital because she accidentally aimed a deluge from the  water sprayer into her ears. 

Perhaps the memory of the event jostled some hidden reflex.   I suddenly found myself bolting out of my chair as the sprayer's full stream of water found it's mark right into my ears.  That was it!  My jacket was drenched.  Fortunately, my ears were OK.  I immediately began to call around for recommendations to friends, associates, anyone I could think of.  

Finally, I connected with a friend who told me about a young lady who worked in a Salon called Sanada.  Sandra said:

  • "You've got to get in to see Kristin.  I've said good-bye to hours spent getting my hair done.  She's not cheap, but she's good and she can get you in and out in an hour!  But don't be put off if it takes you awhile to get an appointment." 

I'm glad she let me know that.  Kristin, one of the team of excellent stylist at Sananda Spa and Salon, is booked weeks in advance.  And for good reason.  She's worth it!

Sananda is part of trio of first rate Salons and Spas in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area.  These include in addition to Sananda, the Grand Salon in Ada and the Grand Salon located in the Amway Grand Plaza downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Their official brochure provides this descriptive of the Sananda Spa & Salon experience:  "Having joy or happiness, joyful, glad, delighted with" and their vision stated as a simple blessing reads thus:  "May your experience with us fill you with joy and happiness and leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed!"

As a full service Spa, the staff are trained to provide a wide array of services.  First time visitors can expect a thorough analysis and detailed questionnaire designed to assure that the best possible recommendations and treatements are suggested. The calming earthtones of the reception area and Spa are accented by stylish contemporary furnishings.  Every guest is offered your choice of beverage:  coffee, tea, lemonade, wine... 

I would highly recommend Sananda's massage therapist Linda.  She is also available by appointment at the other locations.  The woman has a gift in locating stress points and making them magically disappear.  They also provide a full array of different Body Treatments, Masks and Facial Treatments as well as the Standard Manicures and Pedicures. Kristin, my stylist is also a Certified Specialist in Hair Extensions, an increasingly popular service to add volume and instant length to your hair.

Since I'm usually dashing between appointments on most of my visits, I haven't sampled all the services, but those I have were professionally and competently rendered.  The biggest gift to me is the Value of my Time!  Kristin consistently gets me into and more importantly out of her chair in an hour or less!  If you are looking for a good hair salon or spa in Grand Rapids, Mi, I would highly recommend you check out the staff and services at Sananda Spa and Salon.  A visit to Sananda will succeed in leaving you feeling relaxed and refreshed as well as fill you with joy and happiness about a job well done!

Glad you found someone you can trust and get you in and out. I would have freaked out with the sprayer in my ear!

Sally, I did freak out...and jumped right out of the chair which resulted in my outfit becoming totally soaked. Keep in mind, I had just heard the story about what had happened with another client who had the same experience. This has given me a New found gratitude for a competent and timely service appointment.

Lola, it can be hard to find someone you connect with that understands what you want and will give you outstanding service.   I'm glad you found a place you love.  I go to a place that is not very close to me but well worth the drive, they are wonderful and have just about any service you could want.  I think we're lucky and in the minority, I know people that go from place to place and they are dissatified.

Lola, I can't imagine the first hairdresser telling that story that would be like us telling a story about how a deal feel about an hour before closing. Doesn't build alot of confidence does it ?

My husband get's a kick out of how women talk about their hairdressers. I have followed two of them to their houses and then that gets old and I start looking around. Why can't they just stay put ?? Sorta like some Realtors that change companies all the time.

Lola, what a timely post for me.  My wife lost her masseur through relocation and has been searching for a new one ever since.  I will pass the contact and name along.....you might make me look very good on the home front!  If I am pressed on how I found out about Linda I will come clean and tell her you posted the contact.  Nice post.

Carole, sometimes, the little things make such a big difference.  In the large scheme of life, a hair style may not be earth shattering, but when you have someone you like and trust for a service that we all consistently need from time to time...it's nice...real nice!  Thanks for stopping by.

Missy, you're absolutely right!  And then to proceed to repeat the occurrence!   I am chuckling as I read your comment about following a stylist to her house.  I can soooo relate...and it does get old very, very quickly!
