I Tried It…The IG Salon

Ever flip through your IG and see salons post these incredible before and after photos and you think…

I would love that! Is that real? How much did that cost ?!

So did I, so I tried it, after IG stalking a few places, I settled on Reinvention Beauty Bar. Out of all the options, I chose this one because the color work looked fantastic and because the owner would occasionally post photos of herself. I know that sounds like a strange criteria but the fact that she looked just a great as her client photos and clearly put effort and energy into her own look spoke volumes to me. (That’s her in the cover shot).

Fast forward to my impulsive self knowing I had an upcoming function and calling begging for a next day appointment. Not only did she give it to me (though she clearly was busy) she was honest and open about pricing and options, gave great directions and was very friendly on the phone.

The salon itself is lovely, with an open airy floor plan and a light color scheme that felt minimalist but still had personality. Tools and tech were top class, she even had a ring light to take before and after pics! ( I am in love).

With a consultation in place, I found the owner to be both insightful and accommodating. I wasn’t helpful at all, my directives were “no orange, no teal…do whatever you want and I’m growing out a pixie” I was pretty shocked that she managed to turn that into a stunning deep rose gold/magenta (without bleaching) and a shape that suited my needs.

This is what you want from a stylist, a perception that borders on eerie coupled with a pragmatic approach of what is possible. Best part? She was incredibly reasonable price wise. After loads of great conversation and a wonderful end result, I think she has made a loyalist of me. Check her out on social media @reinventionbeautybar
