Varin Salon NYC

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited into Varin Salon by Tia Martinez. She is one of the salon’s top colorist and also the sweetest person ever! The coloring process is never a short one but we had so much fun that it felt like I was there for more like 20 minutes instead of 4 hours. I love my natural dark hair color so I never color the top of my hair. However, I do like how it looks with an ombre touch. She took the exact color I wanted and tweaked it to something she knew would compliment my features.

Before the coloring process I was SO overdue for a haircut! The owner of the salon, Yann, was very accommodating to exactly the style I wanted. I told him that I don’t like to spend a lot of time on my hair and I wanted it as low maintenance as possible. We ended up going with a cut that naturally adds volume so I don’t need to load it up with products or use a billion tools.

That wasn’t the end of my appointment! There is a make-up stylist, Crystal, on hand to touch up your make up to prep for professional shots. They use these shots in their very own app so clients can either see their hair styles change overtime or make sure they are mimicking what the stylist did during the previous cut. Genius!

I had such a great time hanging out with everyone at Varin Salon. They gave me a huge warm welcome to the city and made me a customer for life!
