I had to get squeezed in on a Tuesday because they were booked up on Saturdays for months so waiting any longer was out of the question. They have a great location within a quaint strip mall that's fairy new and actually across the street from a mall. Kinda out of my way but it seems like nothing is close by in the Denver area so I wasn't put out.
I didn't ask to take pic inside because I just didn't feel right about it, but I have to say this is a very upscale and beautiful salon that makes you feel you are being pampered. Modern shampoo bowls, beautiful mirrors and decorations and a video of scrolling pictures showcasing their clients with their beautiful do's. On one side of the wall in the foyer you see just about every product Ouidad carries and if you didn't know it was affiliated with Ouidad you did once you walk in.
Lasha, pronounced (Luh-shay) worked on my hair and she was very knowledgeable. She told me exactly what she was going to do after she asked me what I was concerned with. I told her my main concern was styling my hair and she then told me about their famous Carve and Slice cut that was going to open up my curls and allow them to fall correctly. She checked my hair and to my delight she said my hair was healthy.
From the Shampoo bowl to her styling chair and even to the dryer she explained each product she was applying as well as why it was good for me. She also told me as she shampooed my hair I was shedding badly and asked about my water intake. Its been pretty non-existent and she explained how vital it was especially living in Colorado to drink a lot of water to combat the shedding. I had to admit I have noticed more shedding than usual and have increased my water intake ever since.
Yes, she put me under the dryer with the free Deep Conditioning I got for being a new client and I have to tell you that for a special cut that cost $95 dollars, they need to add the DC every time! When I was ready for the cut I had to admit she really didn't take off that much but was concentrating on the middle of my hair and that's the longest part of my hair. With so little hair cut off I ended up with a hell of an awesome style and cut that I have fallen in love with.
I was suggested to try a few of Ouidad's products and given much advice on it and my hair was styled where I didn't need to wash and go for a week. I was skeptical....I know me. I'm the wash and go queen but I was gonna give it a try.
Check out Part 2 tomorrow!!
Take care Naturals,
