I receive countless emails from readers who want advice on finding a great salon in the NYC area; well I'm finally able to share that I have found one that I HIGHLY recommend - Wellington Hair Spa located 119 W. 23rd Street in Chelsea.
Last week I had the pleasure of having my hair done at the salon, which was unpretentious and quaint. Since I hadn't had my hair done professionally in months, Patrick Wellington (owner/stylist) and his assistant Joanne Laguerre definitely had their work cut out for them. I opted to forgo their offer of a relaxer and had my hair simply blow-dried and flat ironed. I know the heat isn't ideal for our hair, but I wanted a straight style without the chemicals.
For anyone who knows me, I am hardly ever pleased when I leave a salon so this was one of those rare occasions where I was actually satisfied! My only regret is not taking a before and after picture at the salon to share with you!
So for anyone in the NYC-area who wants to go to a stylist who is incredibly professional and knowledgeable about all hair textures: from processed strands, to lovely au naturel locs, Wellington Hair Spa is the salon for you!
How often do you visit a salon? What do you love/hate about them? Speaking of hair, I just received the trailer for Chris Rock's documentary, Good Hair. Are you looking forward to seeing the movie when it's released in October? For those who haven't seen the trailer. Here it is! Share your thoughts.
