From Brunette to Blonde Makeover: Jeffrey Stein 78 Hair Salon, NYC Upper East Side

Don't cheat and scroll down to the bottom of the post to see the big reveal!!!! You must read my review about this fabulous hair salon located in the upper East Side in NYC.  Name: Jeffrey Stein 78.  If you are a commuter like me, it is super easy to get to.  It was really rainy when I went for my appointment. But once I walked in, I felt all refreshed.  The receptionist smile, the bright white walls and lights, just brighten up my morning and I was ready to get all pampered.

Well, pampered is what I exactly got!

During my consultation, we talked about many ideas but landed on one that gave me chills but I felt confident after thanks to my stylist.  The total treatment took no more than 2 hours from start to finish. I have to say, I always wanted to color my hair but just never had the courage to do it. I've done highlights before but never colored my entire hair.  What I love about this look is how the color does not start from the roots.  I have shades of blond and brown that really work well together.  I still don't recognize myself in the mirror.  But if you know me, you know that I always say your hair is your best accessory.  I love the new me! Life is too short to have boring hair! I am ready to be blondie all Summer long and well into Fall. Special Thanks to my amazing friend, photographer, dancer and singer @mrssugarbrown for capturing this makeover; and to the amazing staff at Jeffrey Stein 78 for making me feel like a brand new woman!

Add Some Glam in Your Chaotic Schedule in Just 45 minutes with MB45!

We are always on the go nowadays. I am sure you have a chaotic schedule just like I do. If you've been following me, you would know that I have a very busy lifestyle. Between being a mother, working a 9 to 5, raising 2 young kids and managing a home, there is never a dull moment in my life. As a result, quick and easy anything is what I love the most obviously to incorporate in my life. Well, I am happy to share that my experience at MB45 salon in Tribeca yesterday totally impressed me. If you watched my instastory on my Instagram you would agree when I say it was such a fabulous time. I was in and out looking amazing after my blow out and mani.

My Blow out at MB45 Studio in Tribeca NYC

 

When I walked in I was greeted by Lori. Lovely receptionist. She introduced me to my super sweet stylist Fernanda who walked me over to my washing station. In no time, my eyes were close. I was enjoying the warm water and massage. Once I sat on my chair, Jodi, my nail stylist came over to introduce herself and suggested that I select my nail polish color. I couldn't make up my mind standing in front of an array of gorgeous polishes. So much fun. Since I was having a gel manicure I narrowed down to selecting just a pretty navy shade.

Before my glam quick styling started, I was offered a choice of beverages. My glass of prosecco was the perfect refreshment to my busy day and what I exactly needed for this pampering session. I felt fabulous. Fernanda and Jodi worked on my nails and my hair with such professionalism. We were chatting, smiling and got to know a little bit about each other! I felt like a star getting ready to hit the red carpet with my personal glam squad! I am not exaggerating.  In 45 minutes, I was DONE! my hair was silky, bouncy and smooth. Fernanda did such a great job pulling my curls. She was super gentle with my hair and gave it just enough heat to pull the look. literally a few seconds after, my nails were dry and looked so good matching my dress.

Learn, Style. Love your Kinky Curly Hair

I transitioned to natural hair 10 years ago. It hasn't been an easy process.

I wore wigs, braids, blow dried many times, colored, highlighted, big chopped it over 5 times and the list goes on.

Over the last 3 years I decided to take better control of my hair and I've been committed to treat it well.

I have a daughter and I am constantly educating her to love her natural kinky hair and be proud of it. Not only are all of those chemical relaxers not healthy, they also remove our natural beauty.

I've struggled finding a place to treat my natural hair. I've spent so much money in store and online product purchases that I probably could buy a brand new car by now.  Let's not even mention my YouTube subscription list.

But now, I am proud to say, my struggles are over thanks to

Butterfly Naturals!

When Vasia created her company, she knew she wanted to reach out to women like me.  Every girl has their own hair type and unfortunately, all of these bottles on store shelves and YouTube videos don't educate us about our own hair.

Wash and go is my everyday styling method.  But with the cold season approaching, I get very uncomfortable heading out to work with dripping hair in the freezing weather.  I usually would braid my hair until Spring but than I would struggle having to maintain the braids because they would always fall out due to my hair type being so thin.

Vasia listened and suggested that crochet braids would be the best route for me. I never had crochet braids before and I was very excited when I found out it was a great protective style.

Starting the crochet application was just a partial part of the process. Learning about my hair was the most important time. Vasia did an awesome treatment first and my natural hair really needed it. I was so happy.

The crochet application process went so smoothly. After my natural hair was braided, Vasia added the extensions. I hear lots of people complain about the tightness of their hair due to this style but I have to tell you, the way Vasia did it, I did not feel a thing. I actually had to remind myself that she was tightening hair right on my head!

With the help of her assistant and talented makeup artist Taryn, we were done in no time.

I am loving this protective style so much. The extension matches my natural hair perfectly.

Light and easy to manage, I will be enjoying the next 8 weeks with this look.

Big Hair and Don't Care! Throughout my crochet styling journey and beyond, I will be using Vasia's Natural Handmade products. They promote healthy scalp, healthy hair and healthy styling.
