Spoke & Weal Rolls Into Palo Alto

Silicon Valley devotees of superstar stylist Jon Reyman and color goddess Christine Thompson no longer have to trek into the city to get their tresses did. A Palo Alto outpost of Spoke & Weal, known for its creativity and dry-cutting techniques, recently opened on California Avenue. This marks salon number five for the darling of fashion glossies—locations outside the Bay Area include L.A., Chicago and NYC. The minimalist-cool space is housed in a building owned by a local charity, which means a portion of the rent goes to underprivileged kids. More bonus points for this: Every service includes a complimentary Ayurvedic scalp massage, blowout and styling. Ahh. // 334 S. California Ave. (Palo Alto), spokeandweal.com

Like all the Canadian company's products, this revitalizing mist is made with ingredients that are 100 percent derived from plants and natural essential oils.
