Fresh lid? Yes. I have a shorter, sassier, “summery-er” hairstyle (summery-er is not a word I know, but it captures the feeling, eh?) courtesy of my hair zen master Aura Mae of Azarra Salon and Wine. Drunken Rooster? Drunken Rooster WINE (Grenache), that is. And it was yummy.
Grit City has its very own groovy salon and wine bar all rolled up in one. Azarra Salon and Wine recently unveiled their new digs in the Harmon Building on Pacific Avenue in downtown Tacoma. The new space features a cool reception room that overlooks Pac-Ave. (the people watching cannot be better!) and each stylist has their own room! Aura’s room is the “wine room” (how appropriate for this Gritizen). Excellent labels, good prices, and wine discussion—total fun. I loved being in my own little room as a client—it really feels like the focus is on YOU. And even better, I am surrounded by liquor. Bonus!
But seriously though, I love this concept and the look and feel of this place. And really, Aura and staff are cut and color experts. I have had the best hair looks and styles that I’ve had in YEARS. And I tried some highlights for kicks and they are PERFECT, every time.

P.S. Before you ask, no, there are no pics at the moment of the new ‘do. My eyes are swollen, puffy, and dark circled from acute allergies and I have a scrape on my face (don’t ask). Plus, I don’t want to scare off any potential Azarra Salon and Wine clients. So, when I get back to “normal” (yeah, so to speak), you’ll get your pic.
