I had an amazing opportunity to visit and get a hair cut in one of St Louis Park newest (opened in February) salons called STRAND!
I’ll give you a little tour and then talk more about the products and my hair cut experience!
Look at this beautiful space:
All of the art is done by a local artist Adam Truman (he did the graffiti over at The Butcher and The Boar on Hennepin Ave in downtown Minneapolis, and that’s how I recognized him)!
In fact when I was talking to Derek (owner) he said that he wanted to have as many local artists, designers, distributors involved as he could! And I really applaud him for keeping it local!
And of course I had to take a picture of the nail polishes:
My stylist Emily was a doll! We bonded right away talking about New York City, where we both used to live.
I personally think she did a great job! I am not necessarily picky about who does my hair. And I’ve been sticking to “layers” for as long as I can remember. I think the most important factor for me was for the layers to be blended in really well. And to keep as much of the length as possible, because it weighs my hair down and minimizes the frizz!
I loved the products that she used, Keune. And even though I’ve never heard of that line before, once I found out it was European, I knew I had the right stuff on my hair. Plus it smelt so good! I seriously couldn’t stop smelling it for the rest of the night!
Sam, of course, was the one who had the final say, and he gave his stamp of approval by saying – I love your HUR!
Just one thing people: How on earth do you curl your hair with a flat iron? I seriously need to learn!!!
Thank you Emily for my amazing hair cut, and everyone at STRAND, who is making St Louis Park a stylish and hopping place to live!
