The Ultimate Hair Experience

The Ultimate Hair Experience

“Invest in your hair, it’s the crown you never take off.”

I was recently invited to come in and experience the Kelly Cardenas Salon in Wicker Park. Let me just tell you guys, my visit was the most relaxing hair experience I have ever had! The services I received were their Wash House Experience, Blow Dry & Style. 
The staff was super friendly and greeted me with a mimosa (which always makes me a happy girl) and gave me a tour of the salon. My stylist, Justice, was an absolute sweetheart! She started off my services by taking me to the Wash House area. I didn’t capture an image of this area in efforts to respect the space for other customers, but it was a relaxing room with dim/candlelit lighting and zen music playing in the background. This was by far the BEST wash experience I have ever had. Not only did Justice wash/condition my hair and massage my scalp, she also gave me a neck and shoulder massage for total relaxation. 
Before my Blow Dry & Style, Justice asked me a few questions to assess my hair -are there any issues I notice with my hair (for me, it’s always the frizziness!), what products I currently use, and what type of style I would like for my service. With the crazy humidity in Chicago, my hair has remained up in a ponytail for most of the month. I love beachy waves, but whenever I try to achieve them at home, I step outside and my hair frizzes (like Monica in the episode of Friends). Justice used products to help control my frizz and I instantly noticed it during my Blow Dry. As you can see in the below photo, the blow dryers hang from the ceiling, which I thought was the cutest decor until I realized they are actually real! 
Here is the beachy wave hairstyle! AND even after dining outside shortly after, it still remained tamed 🙂 I loved my experience so much, I booked my next appointment with Justice for a cut and balayage! 
So cute- the bathroom had a board filled with prayer requests

UPDATE 7/29:
I wanted to add in an update so you could see how my hair turned out for my cut/color appointment.  My goal was to brighten up my hair a bit for the summer, so Justice added highlights/balayage. She only took a little length off of the bottom but added dimensions throughout my hair as well as took out some of the thickness (pretty sure my head felt 5 pounds lighter). I really liked my length when I originally visited her for a blow dry & style, so I love that she listened to me and freshened up my cut without taking a drastic amount off.
