Sassoon Salon was my lifesaver this week. I haven’t had a haircut in nearly 6 months, so my ends were more than just split, they were straight up trying to jump ship. When I got the invite from Jess Estrada of Fresh Jess to attend a blogger event celebrating Sassoon Salon’s upcoming 5th anniversary in Seattle, I was more than pumped to take the salon for a spin. And my thick, wavy, kinky, and greasy but dry hair is a good way to put any stylist to the test. Check out my before and after photos, recap of Fresh Jess’ blogger event, and info on Sassoon Salon’s upcoming 5th Anniversary Party on February 19. Psst: you’re invited! They’ll be giving away prizes every 5 minutes so if you like free shit I’d strongly advise attending.
Edward (my stylist) trimmed all the nasties off my ends and styled my hair perfectly. I had asked for wavy and flowy but without the molded-by-a-curling-iron-look. He called them “sausage curls,” which made me laugh. Yup, no sausage curls for me. He also didn’t overload my hair with product–he used just enough to protect my hair and give it a little shine. I still haven’t washed my hair since this night (it was Tuesday, now it’s Saturday) and it still looks good. Before and after photos by Sarah Lovrien.

Food was provided by Frolik! (of course I went straight for the berries) and the salon even had some sparkling cider for me because pregnant people can’t drink.
Cupcakes were provided by Trophy Cupcakes and they were adorable. I was impressed that they even had a gluten free option (I’m not intolerant, but my husband is, so I’m on the GF bandwagon).
If you were wondering, Sassoon Salon is not slacking on the hair products. I’m a big Kerastase fan (it’s the only stuff I’ve found so far that actually makes my hair feel softer), so I was happy to see they were all stocked up.
This lovely ladies from skoah were also there to freshen up our faces. I got a little cream blush and a touch of lipgloss. Photo by Sarah Lovrien.
