I heard about this place from a friend and I had to check it out. She said they strictly did blow outs. They offer 5 different options. All the styles have cute names that relate to drinks. I was so excited! I had the perfect occasion, my 3oth birthday party. It was coming up so I booked an appointment. I had no idea what to expect even though I had checked it out online before hand. When I got there I was greeted by the receptionist that checked me in. I waited about 15-20 minutes even though I had an appointment. It was fine though, as I had allotted some extra time to get dressed and apply my makeup for the big night. I was offered the option of various drinks such as wine, water, and champagne. It was tempting but I passed and distracted myself by reading W magazine. When my time came for my blow out, I chose the Mai Tai which is the "messy and beachy" look. It turned out great but was falling out around the time I left. It was probably my fault since my hair is a bit damaged at the moment due to some coloring. I would recommend it for girls who have a lot of hair or who have a hard time managing it. I saw many girls leaving who looked amazing. The girls who work there are friendly and the decor is very cute. It is $35 for a blow out and they suggest a $10 tip. I am not sure if I will go there again, but I would definitely recommend it.

Say it isn't so! L'Oreal has announced that they will close their Shu Uemura locations in the US. They claim they are moving forward by focusing on their luxury brands such as Lancome, Yves Saint Laurent, Gorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Kiehl's and fragrances. Shu Uemura Art Of Hair however will still be sold in select salons. As far back as I can remember Shu has been a staple in my makeup collection. Their shadows are so well pigmented and they offer a great variety in colors. Of course their coveted and most loved item, the eyelash curler will be one of the items I will stock up on. Makeup artists who know the best of the best usually have one on hand. Now we will have to order our favorite Shu Uemura products online.
