When it comes to cut and color, I have always relied on my salon in the Bahamas. After living in NYC for 3 years, I figured it might be time to find a local salon that I can trust. I am very excited to begin my partnership with the Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa located inside the Loews Regency New York!
Here, I want to give you the full scoop on my Great Lengths hair extensions that you’ve seen on my Instagram.
Leading up to last week, I had 2 consultations with Shab Aghajani, the renowned extensions expert at Julien Farel. This would be my first time getting real hair extensions and I had a million questions! During the first consultation I got to address my concerns and learn more about the process from Shab. My biggest concern is always hair damage, and I was assured that Great Lengths offers the highest quality. The keratin bonds aren’t visible and won’t harm the natural hair. Amazing.
Julien Farel colorist Gynna Cayambe freshened up my color with a blonde balayage. Now fast-forward to the second consultation with Shab to find the perfect color match! She decided to go with 18 inch extensions which would give my hair volume as well as length. Shab is a trained and certified Great Lengths specialist of 7 years so I knew I would be in great hands.
The day of, I arrive at the Julien Farel Restore Salon & Spa and get to have my services done in the VIP treatment room – it is a dream! For me, it was a 3 hour process but extremely worth it. Shab is meticulous and did an absolutely incredible job! A natural, seamless look was achieved and I’m in love with my new hair.
I joined Lafayette 148 for their NYFW event in their brand new store. Clean and modern – the space is a complete reflection of the brand. If you’re in the neighborhood, definitely check them out for great wardrobe staples!
