frumpy to fabulous | My Camille Albane Experience

Last week I shared with you the great time I had at the Camille Albane Salon Grand Opening in Maple Grove. This week I'm back to tell you about a wonderful experience I had at the salon. 
I mentioned in the previous post that I was really excited to try the bayalage hair technique. After talking with a stylist at the salon about the more natural look of baylage I wanted in. Lucky for us we were invited back for a night of salon fun.  

When we arrived at the salon this time around it was so peaceful. Just the stylists, Meg, and the cheerful receptionist. I was excited to be back in the fresh, clean environment. 

My stylist for the evening was Barika. Barika showed me around the salon again. She into more detail about the Camille Albane product line, and the Loreal salon products they carry. 

Next up was my time to get fabulous.  Barika brought me to her chair, and had me put on a nice white robe. Way better than the black capes most salons uses. She started asking me what I was looking for. I told her I wanted to freshen up my look. I was in dier need of a color. It had been several months since my last color. So long in fact I couldn't remember the last time anything was done to my mane. I always feel better about myself with my hair lookin fresh.  I had searched around the web the day before and found this photo. 

Pretty sure that LC has the best hair out there.

To achieve the look I wanted Barika first colored the ends of my hair blonde. After the blonde was done processing she went back over with an all over color. It was nice not to have my hair pulled in every direction and hear the crinkle of the foil. After the all over color was applied she toned the color.

Look ma no foils!

After everything had set I got to test out the massaging chairs. I didn't want to get up after being in the chair. It was pure bliss! 

Meg enjoying her time in the massaging chair.

 I couldn't wait to see how Meg's hair turned out. I don't know if I was more excited for her or me. 

ta da!


Once Barika was done with the color, cut, and style, she touched up my make up. Camille Albane offers complimentary make up touch up before they send you on your way. I loved being able to walk out of the salon with my hair and make-up done. We were ready to hit the town! Until we remembered it was a Tuesday and we both had to work the next day. 

Our finished looks

Thanks Camille Albane, Barika,and everyone involved for this wonderful experience!

I've been using the shampoo (the red bottle the salon provided us) for about a week now and my hair has never felt better. I can't wait to go back!

  1. Your hair looks gorgeous and so does Meg's makeup. #prettyladies

  2. Your hair turned out great! (Also, Meg has been rocking those bright lips recently and I'm loving it!) I stopped dying my hair a few years ago and it's been the greatest thing ever...I go to get my hair cut and it takes all of 30 minutes! I remember spending hours at the salon! But your blonde-ness is making me a little envious, I've gotta say...!

  3. Love your hair! I'm new the Springfield area and came across your blog on the Bloggers Coast to Coast network!
    p.s. LC does have the best hair!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for taking the time to read about Dexter Morgan and his adventures.
