If you read my post “Brunette Color Inspiration” you know I was toying with the idea of change. My hair has lived in many colors and I’ve been a dark brunette for a while now. Naturally my hair is a medium ash brown so as soon as my roots start to grow you see where the vibrancy of “Soft Dark Mahogany Brown” begins.
After many months of discussion in my head I decided to take the plunge! But where to start? I color my hair at home from a box and haven’t had a “colorist” since I was blonde. So finding a salon that I could trust was going to be an issue.
With a random act from the hair gods my sister makes an appointment for a haircut at Muze Salon in New York City and asks if I wanted to come along. After reading many positive reviews online, I held my breath and made an appointment for a haircut and half of head of highlights.
I was immediately impressed by the decor as I walked through the doors. The shop isn’t too small but still has a boutique feeling.Trendy and cool are the words that come to mind; But everyone is so welcoming and nice.
I’m paired up with Liz after being offered coffee and tea and we have a pretty thorough consultation. I explain what I believe will help her know what I want in a hair cut and go on and on explaining the shades that I think may best bring out my eyes. And she gets right to work explaining everything in ways that made me feel 100% comfortable. We talk and have great conversation but not too much conversation where I can’t casually read a magazine.
Fast forward to the end of my appointment – I’m blown away! She corrected my bangs that I had contemplated cutting off and dusted off my split ends. My highlights started to peek through as she gave me a blowout that somehow made my hair the softest it’s ever been. Highlights that are 1-2 shades lighter than my hair is what I asked for and she gave me exactly that! My light brown eyes matched my highlights making them just a tiny bit more golden and I secretly had the urge to dance.
I very nicely thanked her for a great hair makeover and sashayed my way out of the shop feeling like a better version of myself!
