So many products so little time!
Welcome to my blog! I am so excited you took the time to come and read. I will try not to disappoint. If you haven't figured it out yet, I am the owner and creator of VIP Salon & Spa. I purchased this business a little over two years ago with the intent to gut it and make it new. I know personally that the look of a place always attracted me to it so naturally, I had to do that with my beauty salon. It started off slow but about a year ago we really kicked off our remodel. I've learned so many things through the process but one major thing I've taken away from the experience is, DETAILS DETAILS DETAILS! We do hair, nails, waxing, lashes, facials, massages, and body treatments. So instead of choosing the easy way out and finding a basic brand to stock and use, I felt it was my creative duty to thoroughly research and hand pick every product we use and sell in the salon. For hair, I chose Matrix color, why you ask, well because its the best! No seriously, Matrix hair color I find to be the truest color to its name. What you see is what you get, and as colorists, its a lot easier to mix color and get creative with our formulas for each client if we're not over compensating for too much orange. (only colorists will understand) For nails, I chose Valentino and D&C. Valentino acrylic powder is the best in the business! As a nail tech is makes my life easier because it self levels, which cuts down drilling time and its pigmentation is phenomenal! D&C is great because they have an endless amount of colors AND they come in double bottles of gel and regular polish so you never run into the issue of toes and feet not able to match. Skin care took me a little while. I am a strong believer of everything natural and come to find out, a lot of companies claim all natural but when you read the ingredients, their not! So I found repechage and fell in love! All their products are derived from seaweed, how amazing is that? I hand picked the wax, I chose the lashes, and after searching high and low, I found an amazing makeup company! Their eyeshadows are highly pigmented, they're matte lipsticks don't over dry your lips or cake up, and their foundation is highly moisturizing. So stay tuned for VIP Cosmetics coming soon! I'll be doing tutorials and swatches for you all to see. Starting next week I will be going into explicit detail on every product line I carry with photos, videos, and more. I look forward to teaching you everything I know about the beauty industry and would love all the feedback I can get from you all. Thanks for stopping by!
