OSHO Collective is my happy place. Think of a retreat that leaves you relaxed with amazing hair. My friends, Tony and Gaby opened OSHO Collective almost two years ago. I have followed Tony from a few different salons and I can honestly say, this brain child of his and Gaby’s reflects their vision and who they really are.
When you enter into this tucked away haven, you are greeted by a down to earth, yet beautiful team of product specialists, schedulers, and assistant stylists. They offer you coffee, tea, or water and peacefully guide you to where you will sit for your short wait until your appointment begins. The atmosphere is open, airy, bright, yet soothing, with earthy elements mixed with industrial designs.
Your stylist will literally spend several minutes interviewing you about your own personal style, including your life style and struggles that you may have with your color or cut. Once you have agreed upon a strategy, the stylist at OSHO will more than likely begin more conservatively and work into edgy if that is what you so choose. Each stylist that I have encountered has been extremely thorough in understanding my wants, needs, expectations and limitations. They are very concerned with the client leaving happy, with healthier hair, and building the proper relationship. Tony and Gaby are also wonderful at matching clients with stylists. They may help you find the right stylist if you are unsure about trying someone without knowing anything about their work.
At a place like this, you have to enjoy the moment you are in. Sometimes I am at OSHO for a while. I understand this and make time for it. They are extremely good at what they do. It is a place that promotes thoughtfulness and there are even outside lounging areas to sit while you are processing. Connect with nature and with Instagram. Additionally, Gaby and her team on the other side of the salon offer different services. If you are feeling tense or just want an extra way to relax they offer full body soaks and feet soaks. They also offer massages, facials, hair removal, and my favorite, guided sessions.
Guided sessions are experiences best left unexplained. I can imagine that each person has a different description and that description probably varies from session to session. What I will say about the guided sessions is that they are worth every penny and each time I leave more enlightened and empowered. If you choose this service, be prepared to, as Tony says, “drink lots of water.” Also, plan to come open to the experience and willing to believe in the process. It is life changing and as I write this, I realize I must schedule a session with Gaby!
In essence, this is a whole body experience. From the amazing scalp massages each person who has shampooed my hair has delivered, to the amazing knowledge and technique the stylists possess, to the options to connect with your mind and spirit and feel accepted in a clean, unpretentious, hip environment, you will fall in love with OSHO and all who reside there.
