The Columbus Club: Nurtur Grandview

I’m starting a new series called The Columbus Club. My hopes is that over time it will become a “sub-blog” of Be Up & Doing and if I start posting about my lovely city more regularly – it won’t be a part of my main blog feed since I have a lot of readers all over the world. For now, I’m glad to be showing off where I live in hopes that all my awesome readers will look me up if they ever pass through! Columbus is amazing and one of the only places I’ve ever truly felt at home.

About a month ago I was offered a free service at the new Nurtur (an Aveda salon) location in Grandview (my neighborhood). I walked down one Friday morning excited to relax and enjoy my hair & scalp renewal ($60). I had just returned from Jamaica and my skin/hair was quite dry. Upon arriving I was immediately impressed with how tranquil and beautiful their new space is. It’s quite narrow and situated on the corner of a busier intersection but the glass windows really make it feel open.

My services were relaxing as always and Julie finished my services with a blowout as I sipped my cup of Stauf’s coffee! My hair seriously never looked better.

So for all my Columbus readers – I’m hosting a giveaway! Nurtur not only invited me in for complementary services but graciously gave me a $25 giftcard to share with one of you! The giveaway is open until next Thursday at 12am EST and I will notify the winner via email. Good luck and enjoy. It will make the perfect pre-holiday treat.

    Well, first of all – I’m uber pumped about this feature!
    I’ve lived in Columbus my entire life (pretty much – 3 years in Chicago as a toddler don’t count)! And it kills me that you live in Grandview – oh, if I had the money!

    As a young mama of a toddler + newborn, I could totally use a day at Nurtur! Think I’d probably go for a mani!

    Thanks for the opportunity!

    This feature is awesome! Looking forward to more Columbus posts. I’d probably use it on an eyebrow wax. My Groucho Marx eyebrows have got to go.

    Love this new series, Allie! :) I’ve been thinking a lot about doing more local posts, as well, because I love my city and really want to highlight and promote the many talented artisans who offer great products and services throughout the city. P.S. I will probably be in the Columbus area after the holiday with a friend. It would be great to maybe meet up for a coffee or something if you’re around! :-)

    Love this idea Allie! I would use the gift card for part of a massage – my go-to for treating myself! :)

    I’ve always liked Nurtur’s Lane Avenue location, and I’m excited to hear it opened a Grandview salon!

    I’d use the gift certificate toward a pedi.

    I would use this toward either a facial or a conditioning treatment. LOVE Nurtur. Love Aveda. And of course, love Grandview. This is a win-win.

    The Columbus Club is clever. :)

    As you know, it’s been like 8 months since I’ve had a haircut. I’m in desperate need!

    I would use that giftcard for either a haircut or maybe I might get brave and use it towards getting it colored.

    Thanks for the giveaway Allie! Your hair really does look amazing in that photo! I need to check this place out! :)

    I have been wondering when this salon was going to open up. It’s a great location and I would love to try it out for my birthday month :) I would probably use it before a holiday party for a fun party look or for New Years Eve (happens to be my bday too) :) Great giveaway!

    If I won, I’d give this to my wife. She deserves some pampering!

    If I had to use a gift card to Nurtur on a day like today I would probably try out their nail services instead of hair. Don’t want a new hair-do to get wet in the rain.

    If I won the gift card, I would use it for a haircut/color…still looking for a new salon in Columbus! :)

    I would use the gift card for a haircut or use it towards color. Love Nurtur salons and Aveda products!

    I would use it towards a cut and mini-lights. I love Nurtur U.A., but my stylist moved, so I’d be excited to try a new stylist at the G-view location.
