Soiree Salon and Spa Reopens with a New Look!

Soiree Salon and Spa
After five weeks worth of renovations, Soirée Salon and Spa is back, and they're better than ever!

First: They've updated their logo! When I saw the new design on their Facebook page, I remember saying wow. It's clean and simple, yet very elegant. I think the logo is every bit as important as the services you offer or the products you sell, because it's basically a representation of your establishment. It's the first thing potential clients see, as they pass by your store on their way to work, or as they drive through your street looking for a new place to eat at.

Not that Soirée ever had a problem with drawing customers in, but I personally think that their new logo perfectly captures what they are all about - simple (no gimmicks or hard-selling of products) and very professional!

Second: Both floors of Soirée have been refurbished! I took a lot of photos for you guys because words just cannot describe how lovely the place looks now. Let's start with the first floor! :)

What was once a dark and gloomy space has turned into a bright and relaxing area filled with yellow accents. The perfect place for people who simply want to get pampered and think happy thoughts. 

When I got upstairs, I was thrilled to see that same happy color has invaded their salon. Yellow stripes lined the blue walls. A yellow armchair with matching pillows sat on one corner. Aside from that, the area also seemed bigger, more spacious, from when I last visited.

Third: They have amazing service that will keep you coming back for more!

As I sat and waited for my turn, I looked through possible color options for my hair. The night before, I already decided on getting an ombre. Imagine me with dip dye hair on my curls, how exciting! But when I got there, I found out they didn't offer the service, so I asked the stylist, Nelson, for his recommendation instead. I told him I wanted a subtle shade of brown with subtle highlights so he suggested we go for a Natural Brown base. He was very accommodating and didn't seem to mind when I kept asking him if he's absolutely 100% sure that the color won't be too noticeable!

He made use of Schwarzkopf Professional's Igora Royal but they also offer Essensity (the brand's ammonia-free line).

I was honestly worried the color would come out too light (hence the serious/scared face) :P

So, to calm me down a little, I decided to get a manicure.

I commend Ms. Ella for a job well done. She has light hands, so I felt relaxed the entire time. My nails also look so clean now, thanks to her! :)

They left the color treatment on my hair for 25 minutes before doing the roots (which took only 10 minutes). Nelson also recommended that I get a Total Repair Treatment since my hair had become dry from the digiperm and hair coloring.

A much needed treatment, I must say. My hair feels so much softer now.

Remember girls, our hair is our crowning glory, so we really have to take care of it and give time for it, even if it means sitting in a salon for three whole hours!

My hair right after Nelson ironed it versus my hair the following day (after showering).

The color is definitely subtle - just the way I like it! No highlights yet though, since they didn't have foil at the time and I was already running late for work haha. I'll probably go back next week for that.

Thank you so much to the staff of Soirée Salon and Spa, especially to Ms. Christine, for having me!
Again, a big congratulations on your re-opening! :)
