Moving to a new city - especially a BIG city like NYC can be daunting at the best of times, from finding an apartment, to making new friends to well dating NYC boys - the emphasis there being on boys :)
And then there is hair and make up - I'm often left overwhelmed with the choice of options and then under whelmed with the results - but alas for a girl always on the go and the need to look refreshingly pretty but not overdone - I discovered Joli Beauty Bar.
Located in East Village - this hair and beauty salon is seriously my new one stop shop for that effortless blow out - flawless make up and just down right good girl chat. Yes that's right they do beautiful blow outs and make up - no need to run around to 2 separate places now!
Founded By Meg Black and Zsuzsi Evans this place infuses a little cherchez la femme with customized attention to detail.
I visited the salon wearing my new wantable outfit to receive eye lash extensions, a blow out DO and what they call the approachable perfection - full-face makeup application to enhance your most beautiful of features for a soft yet striking look - please view full Joli beauty menu here
These girls - nothing but love for their amazingly beautiful salon and equally radiant personalities.
