Having just enjoyed the scrumptious breakfast buffet at Mr. Chile,located on the corner of 10th Avenue and 10th Street in beautiful Playa del Carmen real estate,I mentally prepare for my monthly haircut at By Lia. Lia,the owner,hails from Paris,France but has called Playa del Carmen home for the past several years.
I would call a trip to her salon more of an experience more than just a haircut. It begins with a lengthy shampoo/scalp massage,which combined with the almond scent of the shampoo,relaxes the entire body,mind,and spirit. Being transferred to a chair,the haircut part of the experience is enjoyable for nearly anyone considering that Lia loves to chat in Spanish,French,and English. The professional,customized cut is followed by another shampoo,then blow-dry and style.
Considering that I have paid up to sixty dollars for the same type of experience in Atlanta,the twenty I spend with Lia reinforces the cheaper lifestyle that can be had here in the Riviera Maya. Aside from price,I can always get an appointment within a couple days of calling. I have been a happy client for over three years now,and every month I look forward to seeing Lia again for a great shampoo,trim,and conversation.
