Last week I went to the beautiful Luigi Parasmo Salon in Georgetown for a cocktail soiree to showcase Oribe, their latest luxury hair products. They had complimentary cocktails, hors d’oeurves from Neyla and 15% off all Oribe products purchased at the events. Considering that these are some of the best products on the market, that is pretty unheard of. Also when I arrived I found they had some of the great people from Oribe there to do consultations which I took advantage of!!
I arrived a little bit early so they were not yet set up but the nice thing about being the first to arrive is that you have uninterrupted time to talk to everyone. One of the things that I really loved about this salon was the staff!! They all seemed like a close group of friends/extended family. I found it genuine and refreshing especially since they acted this way before there was really anyone around to see them. They were taking pictures together and joking around and just having a good time. When they saw me sitting in the waiting area, they came over to make me feel welcomed and invited me to come on back. Many of them complimented my hair which had me glowing from the start and I could tell they weren’t just saying it. They made me feel like part of the group and were a blast to chat with. The owner Luigi was delightful and very down to earth and welcoming as well so I can see where the staff gets their great attitude from.
I also ran into the fabulous Dannia Hakki, the Co-owner and Founder of Moki Media. They are an entertainment, hospitality, design and fashion PR agency. She is amazing at what she does and she put on a great event. I really enjoyed getting to talk with her and her team while I was there as well!
On my way out I purchased on of the products that was recommended for me, the Apres Beach: Wave and Shine Spray. I’m not going to do a full blown review because I’ve only used it once but once was enough to sell me! When I used it on the fro, I was able to slick back the front in a way that kept the hair out of my face which is why I usually rock the headband. I’ll have to experiment some more to see what else I can do with it! Overall it was a great night and I will have to go back and get some services from the fabulous staff!!
