My First New York Natural Hair Salon Experience

Salon

Going to a natural hair salon has always been on my things-to-do in New York bucket list. I had my fair share of failed regular salon visits, so when I was finally able to get an appointment at one of the premier natural hair salons in New York City, I was beyond ecstatic.

The waiting list for this particular salon was backed up for months, and when I called to make my appointment it just so happened that someone had just cancelled literally 5 minutes prior, so I was in luck. I was so nervous leading up to the day of the appointment and was really trying to figure out what style to get.

I browsed the website and tried to find pricing, but there was none listed. I kind of assumed that it would be expensive, I just didn’t know how expensive, but figured I would bite the bullet, since it was on my bucket list.

The day of my appointment, as soon as I walked into the salon I was enamored by all of the natural products in the salon! This salon is a name brand product salon, so all of their products are well known in the natural hair community.

I was really surprised to see products that I’ve never seen on the shelfs, and made a note to buy something at the end of my appointment. When I finally sat down in my stylist’s chair, she spun me around and did a quick assessment of my hair and told me what she thought I needed. She also asked me what style I wanted, and I opted for a simple wash and go.

My wash and gos have been a bit limp lately, so I wanted a professional to work their magic on my curls…. and boy did she! I don’t typically tip at salons, but my curls had never been so bouncy and moisturized.


I mean, they were popping! The only downside, I would say is the price. Even before I purchased the products, the bill was over 100 dollars, however I was prepared, and paid. That will probably be me last natural hair salon experience, but it was definitely worth it!

Did you wash your hair before you went in for your appointment? I have seen a article that says I should wash my hair before I go so the stylist can see what my hair is like clean with minimal product.
