So last weekend I headed to NYC for my second Seventeen Magazine photoshoot with Aeropostale. Along the way I stopped by Arrojo Salon in NYC, thanks to Socialyte for hooking up the appointment.
As I walked into this gorgeous salon I couldn't help but notice the amazing bright decor and the product display was awesome. I even walked to the back to use the restroom and there was a cafe/coffee shop in the back! How cool is that?
I sat down in my styling chair and I had the CUTEST colorist ever. Her name was Olivia Halpin . Everyone there had an amazing sense of style, very retro & cute. She was wearing this neon pink necklace that I couldn't get over! Anyway, back to my hair haha. I had gotten these clip in extensions the night before and I needed them to match my hair for the photoshoot. So I told Oliva that I just want these to match my hair. She didn't pull out a color wheel or anything. She came back with 2 bowls of color, one for lowlites and the other for highlites.
After talking to her for a little she finished my top head of highlites/lowlites. She did them pretty quickly considering how small she was making each foil. Which I was totally ok with! So as I was letting the dye set in I took a stroll around the salon. It is a 15,000 sq ft salon. It has amazing decor, the stylist's and other workers had amazing style, the music was relaxing but up to date, and you got a killer view of the city!
I am usually really nervous about going into salons, just because I had a crazy salon experience when I was younger. After Olivia washed out the color, she put a gloss on. After we headed back to my chair I looked into the mirror and I was totally stoked on the color. She finished blow drying my head and literally it was one of the best dye jobs I have ever gotten. They ended up matching my extensions PERFECTLY. The hair guy at the Seventeen shoot was also impressed by Olivia's color technique.
