One of my favorite things about going to the salon is getting my hair washed. I love having my head rubbed, the warm water is so soothing and having someone else wash your hair just feels so luxurious. Don’t you agree? It’s really the best thing ever in my book.
Well, on Tuesday, I was lucky enough to experience a hair treatment (the Emergencée Restorative Strength Conditioning Treatment was/is amazing) and styling session at the new Nexxus hair salon in Tribeca. I not only had the hair washing and head massage of a lifetime (their wash chairs recline and are made by the same company as dentist office chairs!!!) but I was walked through a personal hair diagnosis via an interactive touch screen mirror by Nexus’ Creative Director, Kevin Mancuso himself, then whisked away to a styling chair for a blow out complete with a touch of beachy waves for my final look by the lovely and talented Patrick.
This ingenious interactive mirror walks you through a texture matrix based on the type and diameter of your hair (you upload a photo of yourself before you get your hair cut) and based on your answers, it helps you choose a color, style and product regimen. What?! Genius. I was so impressed.
The other great thing about this system is, it remembers exactly what you had done by saving your photos and data so you can always get exactly what you’re looking for each time you come in! Again, totally sold.
These chairs recline all the way back, as you can see in the photo below, which totally eliminate neck cricks and discomfort altogether. You basically feel like you are lying in a soft and comfy bed. Thumbs up in my book!
I had just sat up from getting my head massaged and hair washed. If you can’t tell, I was one happy and relaxed girl!
The final look!

I got to hang with these cute girls all night, feeling all pampered and pretty, for the second portion of the night, which was the cocktail party with Cosmopolitan! (Far right, Jeannine from BeautySweetSpot, far left, Jordan from Ramshackle Glam, and Amber from Rouge18 (not pictured).)
The salon officially opens in June, but they are doing a soft launch now so you can schedule an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 212-219-8635. You can view all their treatments here.
The Nexxus Hair Salon is located at 39 N. Moore in NYC, so if you are locally based or visiting this summer, I definitely recommend checking it out! xo
