Last month I was able to attend Salon Eleganzas 10th anniversary event. WOW, is all I can say! I was expecting to show up to the salon with about thirty people quietly socializing and enjoying each other’s company. I could not be more wrong! When I pulled into the parking lot there were no spots available and people were buzzing around having a wonderful time. There was a jazz band playing, delicious barbeque food displayed, wine tasting, drinks available and the list goes on. If I could describe the atmosphere in one word I would say joyful. Everyone looked like they were having a fantastic time!
I went up to Antoinette to say hi and she greeted me with her signature red locks and a giant smile. All the ladies who worked at the salon had on matching outfits, perfectly coiffed hair and beautiful makeup. If was very evident to see these ladies invested a lot of time and effort into making this event as wonderful as possible. That speaks volume on not just the salon, but also their work ethic. Work hard, play hard! Am I right??!
As the evening progressed on, Antoinette spoke a few words of gratitude and introduced the other women who worked beside her and supported her on this journey of success. I am all for #girlbosses and Antoinette has done a great job at making a name for herself in Rochester.
Salon Eleganza specializes in women’s, men’s and children’s hair design. They also offer makeup application and waxing services. Their mission is “to bring more bling into your life”. Many of the ladies working specialize in different fields and are always staying on top of the latest trends.
What is it like when you first visit the salon? When you enter the salon, a receptionist will greet you and offer you something to drink while you wait to be called back. There is a small display by the window of different varieties of jewelry, all being offered at affordable prices. To your right you will find a small room with all kinds of unique boutique items. Side Note: The white mirror is not for sale. (It SO cute and I always try to buy it when I go in, no success as of yet J ) There is another room a little farther down on the right and that is specifically for waxing.
Once your name gets called you will be taken around the corner and sat down at the table where you will discuss with your hairdresser what you would like to see accomplished at this appointment. The salon is very family friendly and orientated with a warm atmosphere.
If you have seen my locks lately, Michele has been my go to girl. One thing I love about Michelle is that she tells me how much my services are going to cost. Have you ever gone to the counter to pay for your hair and the manager has to come by and pick up your jaw off the floor because the bill is outrageous? I have been there. Not with Michele. She is in the business to make life long clients not just a hefty sum of money by the end of the day. To me that is the most important part. I want a hairdresser that understands my style AND respects the fact we all work hard for our money. Communication is key and she always understands that.
If you are in the business of looking for a new salon or just interested in seeing what Salon Eleganza has to offer, take a look on their website, www.saloneleganza.com. You will find full details and pricing of what the salon has to offer. Many of my friends and family members have frequented the salon and I would never recommend anything I did not fully love.
Are you someone who has been to the salon before? I would love to hear what you loved about your visit. Leave me a comment below!
