An Afternoon with Salon Era

Today’s post is full of firsts. I am so excited to share this with you, about a month ago Salon Era contacted me to come into their salon and experience their VIP lounge. I was highly intrigued and started looking at their website and set up a day to come in. I was going to have three services done, Colour, Cut and the Deesse treatment.

Now I have never coloured my hair before, 19 years of all natural hair. I was excited and nervous to try something different. I knew I wouldn’t go crazy but we started the process to go blonder. My plan is to be fully blonde by spring. The employees at Salon Era are amazing, they have so much experience you feel so comfortable as they start to work on your hair. I had no anxiety of colouring my hair I was so relaxed it was amazing. Sebastien did an incredible job colouring my hair, we went with some cool blonde highlights, caramel highlights and some lowlights for definition. It wasn’t a drastic change and it really allowed me to see what kind of blonde I want to focus on and what direction I want to go.

Then I had the Deesse Rejuvenating hair treatment, and boy was that a treat. A three layer process that made my hair smooth, soft, and strong. I also got an amazing head massage and I was in heaven. Then it was the owner, Ken’s turn to work with me. Ken was the one who would be cutting my hair. I have had my fair share of experimenting with hair cuts and now I know what I want. I chose to just clean up my hair get rid of split ends and make it fresh. I love my long hair so I don’t plan on going short anytime soon.

Now all of these treatments were enjoyed in their private VIP lounge. It was just incredible with couches and a gorgeous, very comfortable salon chair. Everything I needed for my services were up there. You can have the choice of having the curtains pulled across for total privacy or you can overlook the rest of the salon. Now that I have experienced the VIP treatment I don’t know if I will ever be able to go back to a regular chair 😉
