Hair With Nicole Marie Salon
As you all know I was getting ready to walk in Chicago Fashion Week. There was a lot of preparations that I had to make, one being my hair. My hair has always been something important to me. When I was a young girl I remember being so sad that it wasn't as long, colorful, or flowy as the glorious characters in a movie. It has always been stubborn, staying shoulder length despite all the remedies, vitamins, and care. However, my love for long hair never diminished. In fact, it increased the older I became.
Not only do I love long hair but I love being blond, which is practically like a recipe for disaster. Let's just say I love to have my cake and eat it too. However, through great patience and care, it can be done!
When Nicole Marie Salon reached out to me I was super excited because I had seen their incredible work online. You know when you go on Pinterest and pin all those amazing curly, mermaid-like types of hairstyles? They had pictures just like that and I was hooked!
My roots have a mind of their own and they grow pretty fast. Apparently, the rest of my hair didn't get the memo.
The ambiance of the entire salon is so elegant and chic. I love the massive chandelier and the color palette that creates this glamorous aesthetic.The staff is so very friendly and greeted me immediately as I walked in which gave me such a comfortable ora.
A fact about me, my new growth has a stubborn mind of it's own and they had the pleasure of dealing with that hot mess express. The new growth, which is dark brown, literally 'springed' forth. My blond had also gone towards copper. Nicole, is the cutest little momma to be with such a passion for what she does. She took great care treating my hair and coloring back to the blond that I love and am used to. She took the time to educate me on coloring and what is good and bad for your hair. She explained each process effectively and made me feel so comfortable. Also, I'm a huge fan of great conversation and there was never a dull moment. I learned about her life and how she is a proud Chicagoan, which so am I, we bonded over family, friends, and how she grew into owning her own business (Super Woman over here). Does anyone else feel like getting your hair done is great therapy? Or is it just me? Gabbing about your day while getting your hair fresh and new, nothing beats that type of pampering.
After getting my color all settled she hooked me up with the fantastic hand tied extensions. Now, if you're like me, and have never tried these type of extensions you will be in for a glorious surprise. Not only are the lightweight, you barely feel them, but they look super natural. Now, the best thing is that they come in different styles, textures, and colors. So, my hair is super curly and they have a texture to match if I want to rock the curly Shakira look. I personally wanted them for volume and length because my natural hair is thin and short. They are fantastic even comfortable while sleeping! The best thing is that it doesn't change anything drastically but gives you that added amount of sparkle that you deserve!
If you are looking for a talented, creative stylist in the Chicago area I highly recommend this salon. I am obsessed with my hair and hand tied extensions. I finally feel like I have the hair I have always dreamed about.
Happy Monday loves I hope you have a great week!
Until next time.
