Talking about my hair color and cut experience at Parlor & Parlor… (this is an ‘after’ picture!)
This was my hair before:
The amazing and adorable gals who cut my hair:
Annnnd after! It’s so crazy to see my hair straight and dark to me!:
Two weekends ago I got my hair cut and colored at Parlor & Parlor in the East Village. I already posted a photo after I got it done,but here’s the full story! I never straighten my hair because I’m lazy (I actually wish I did sometimes!) so it’s really crazy for me to see it straight! I think I look so different. So I really felt like a new woman when I left the salon.
The two amazing gals who did my hair were Courtnee and Megan! I can’t rave enough about both of them. Courtnee did a great job with the color. She showed me a bunch of different swatches to help figure out which color was exactly what I wanted. I really liked the darkest brown option so that’s the one I went with! Sometimes it looks black and surprisingly, I love it! I never would of thought.
Going in, I had no idea if I wanted to get anything other than a trim. So Megan (who cut my hair) kind of helped me figure out what I wanted. I just got a much needed trim and some longer, subtle side bangs. I hadn’t cut my hair in almost two years, so this was a HUGE deal for me. She took of the perfect amount of my dead ends without really taking a lot of length off of my hair. I was so happy about that because I think that’s part of why I rarely get my hair cut.. they always chop off too much! So it was a perfect cut.
The best part is Parlor & Parlor is an Aveda salon! If you’ve never heard of Aveda products, they are amazing. Being from Louisiana, Aveda is very popular is salons in my home state,but not so much in New York. It was great to be at a salon with the products I had used in my hair most of my life!
If you have any extra questions about my hair experience, please leave a comment on this post and I will answer them! I really loved my experience, so if you are looking for a place in NYC (they have a Brooklyn salon as well!) to get your hair cut and/or color, try them out!
