Forgive us, [insert former hairdresser’s name].
You’ve seen us through updos and downs, but we can no longer hide our true feelings for David Rios.
We’ve spent six years running after him, making discreet cut and color appointments at Christophe and Isabelle’s Okyo salons. But the handsome Frenchman has opened his own spot, and we no longer have to keep our affair secret.
What does he have that you don’t? Take a deep breath: eighteen styling stations, four pedicure cubbies, two treatment rooms, and a private station ideal for touching up men’s color. He’s also invited us to sip espresso on his patio and host parties at the new digs.
Rios uses Great Lengths and Hairdreams extensions. And when we let him give us a cut ($150), he trims our bangs free between appointments.
Now you know how our split ends.
