A few weeks ago Zhenya posted in the Minnesota BloggersFacebook page about a new salon opening in Maple Grove. I was curious to learn more about this salon once I heard this would be the first U.S salon. Camille Albane first started in France. The now have over 300 salons in 11 countries.
I met up with Shelby before the salon opening for some happy hour action. After we filled out bellies we were off to Maple Grove to experience all things Camille Albane. When I first walked into the salon I notice how fresh, clean, and simple it looked.
It's nice to walk into a salon that doesn't look dark and dingy. Camille Albane was already winning points in my book.
We were greeted with some wine and champagne.
Next stop the wash stations. These chairs are massaging chairs.
Of course we had to test them out. AMAZING! If there wasn't other people waiting to try out the chairs I
We had a chance to talk to some of the stylists about their training and about "bayalage". I was very interested to learn about their hair coloring process since they don't "foil" hair. The bayalage coloring technique is when the stylists paint you hair. Yup, you read that right. No hair foils. I couldn't seem to wrap my head around this. I've always been one to change my hair color all the time with highlights and lowlights using foils. I can't wait to try out bayalage!
Shelby was very excited to receive a manicure with Tina.
