Let’s face it–we all could use a little pampering thanks to our modern multi-tasking, often on-the-go lifestyles. Warmer weather creeping in warrants the perfect time to invest in your summertime style.
Besides, who doesn’t want to kick off the season with confidence? I’m sure some of us could use a bit of grooming before the swimsuit and skin shedding season starts. And I’ve got just the spot to share with you.
Invest in Looking & Feeling Your Best
Head over to Búzí Salon, located at 341 Acushnet Ave in Downtown New Bedford, and get glowing just in time for summer. Búzí is a full service salon and spa offering hair, nail and skin services for men and woman.
Salon owner Rosa Figueiredo opened her slice of serendipity four years ago and left no luxury out when it came to designing and decorating her little oasis. The beautiful brick building adds a hint of history while the serene décor creates an atmosphere of pure peace.
Búzí’s clean and private rooms help you relax and escape during massage and skincare treatments. Candlelit spa services are also available, adding ambiance to the already calming environment that will leave you feeling refreshed and revitalized. I have to start by saying my favorite find at Búzí Salon–The shampoo chair.
It really is epic. You know that awkward, uncomfortable feeling you get while you’re trying to enjoy someone scrubbing your scalp clean while you lean your head back in the salon sink? How about an automatic, reclining shampoo chair rather than struggling to extend your neck and save yourself from a back bath? Do yourself a favor and try it out. You will thank me later.
Spring into Summer
In the mood for a new dew? Why not brighten up with some highlights? Feeling frumpy? Rejuvenate your skin with a coconut margarita facial. Refresh your existing style or tame your mane with a Keratin treatment. Say goodbye to stress with a deep tissue massage. Whether you need an eyebrow wax, manscaping, or a smooth and clean bikini area, Búzí offers a salon service for you. Ladies, you should know that Búzí is the only spot in downtown New Bedford where you can get a Brazilian wax. (You’re Welcome)
Take it from me… I’ve had my Cosmo license for ten years now. So I’m no stranger to the beauty industry. But now that most of my time is spent in mommy mode, studying and writing, I was a bit out of touch with self-care. After a long New England winter, I decided to get primped and pampered at Buzi.
I appreciate a stylist who takes time with my locks. There really is nothing like the soft patting of a color brush on my scalp and someone else blow-drying and styling my hair while I struggle to stay awake in the chair. It’s honestly one of the most relaxing things I do for myself every six weeks. (Confession) Got me some killer highlights and a sexy stylish haircut to match. Like I said, I know the industry; my hair is very healthy and I didn’t even make it to my car before I received a compliment on my new dew. The proof is in picture gallery below.
Massage Skincare & Wax Services
When it came time for my 90-minute facial including a 30-minute neck, shoulder and foot massage…let’s just say I felt like I was on vacation as soon as I smelled the warm coconut oil that Rosa gets from a local woman in St. Maarten who grinds the coconuts herself! My esthetician, Marta (skilled skin expert) seriously serenaded me with soft music, deep breathing exercises to relax pre -eyebrow wax and a fabulous facial experience. Star shaped soft lights, spa music and the warm massage bed was just what I needed to drift away from daily routine into sweet serenity.
Marta shared with me all the benefits and techniques of a facial; relaxation, smooth and radiant skin, deep cleansing and exfoliation, extractions (optional), even complexion, increased circulation, releases toxins, hydrates and protects skin from free radicals and sun damage, and brightens and tones skin for soft glowing results.
Protection from the sun is a major factor to consider now that I’m in my 30’s; it’s time to toss the straight baby oil and opt for some serious sunblock. I walked out of Buzi feeling like a boss. My skin is glowing and I couldn’t have asked for a better massage. Marta and Linda are excellent estheticians that can even set you up with a skincare regime.
