Products Yoshie used on my hair

In an effort to rid the accustomed method of zapping off inches of hair strictly one time per year, I recently had a hair date with Pierre Michel salon for a day of decadence.  The 10,000-square-foot behemoth of a monument sits at Lexington Avenue and 57th Street with over 61 workstations and three private treatment rooms.  Upon stepping foot into the salon, there was without a doubt good reasoning behind their 40+ year existence.  After visiting various locations in the city, Pierre Michel has maintained its recent location for about four years.  Every luxurious detail stood out: complimentary snacks and beverages at a marble-topped coffee bar, built-in massage chairs while being shampooed, free Wi-Fi, and even the bathrooms are accessorized with Dyson Airblade hand dryers.  

After being draped in a Pierre Michel robe by one of their employees who has been loyal to the company for over 30 years, I was escorted to the shampoo room where I instantly sunk into the massage chair and felt utter relaxation.  Post-shampooing, I was advanced to consult with Yoshie, who is considered my go-to stylist whenever visiting New York City.  We discussed exactly what I wanted, how I typically style my hair, products to use, and she even inquired about the barrel size of curling iron that I use.  I placed my life in her hands as she artistically trimmed away at my locks, leaving me feeling like a million bucks.  I'm not the only who feels like a whole new woman after receiving a beautiful cut, right?  Let's just say I'm ditching any other hair stylist and flying straight to the city next time I need a trim.  Yoshie also introduced me to a hair service, Japanese hair straightening, which saturates the bonds within hair that gives its shape using a solution. Whatever the latest hair trends are, Pierre Michel covers it all.  Haircuts and styling start at $135, but it's completely worth it. 

In addition to hair services, Pierre Michel also offers eyelash extensions, facial treatments, waxing, makeup applications, manicures and pedicures as well.  If you are ever in Manhattan, stop by Pierre Michel for a day of luxury.

No Cuts, No Dye, Just Blowdry.

As the weekend approaches, I thought I would share my newest find (and savior to my hair) in Florida. With locations in Boca Raton and Aventura, So Blo blowdry salon is an ultra luxe yet affordable salon where ladies can get their hair done easily and with no fuss.  I had the opportunity to take it for a test run prior to the Aventura grand opening, as I was on my way to another event and it was a fabulous experience.

Something that intrigued me about So Blo is their "No Appointments" policy, which means you don't have to go through the hassle of being able to fit it into your schedule because they cater to you and allow you to come in whenever you like.

What I love so much about this particular blowdry salon is the simplicity of it.  For example, you can get a quick blowout before a meeting, during a lunch break, before a big event, prior to a date night out with the beaux.  I'm also one of those girls who loves a good pampering (what girl doesn't love to be pampered?) and So Blo treated me like a queen from the moment that I stepped foot in the salon.  From champagne to the service, it's an overall relaxing experience that would even be great for a ladies night out or birthday night out.

How fab does this look?  Every signature blowdry includes a shampoo AND a glass of champagne.  The salon also offers quick touch-ups, scalp massages, styling for little ones, twists and braids, deep conditioning treatments, updo styling, and packages for frequent visitors.

Of course, So Blo knows me well and gifted me with a bag of goodies and an entire tray of cupcakes to go!  

Don't forget to RSVP to the event that I'll be hosting tonight at Neiman Marcus Bal Harbour along with Haute Hippie founder and other fashionista bloggers!  Details below.
