Beauty & the Beats Part II @ Rare Salon

Posted in Artsy Fartsy, Events, Fashion by yoshi on September 19, 2011

Yesterday I attended the second quarterly installment of “Beauty & the Beats” at Rare Salon! I was greeted by the friendly staff of Rare and the beautiful Ness who helped coordinate the event.

Guests who attended were treated to special event services for $40, they included: decorative nail art and manicure by the infamous Naomi Yasuda, make-up by Ashley Spedale and JuliQ Monae, and/or a lovely hair wash and blow-out by the Rare Salon staff headed by the wonderful Fatima =) I actually got all 3 services done and my awesome new straight hair was done by Tammy Reynolds – teeeeehehehehehe!

While I chatted with new and old friends and waited for the next available expert, I munched on mini cupcakes (french toast was my fav!) also made by Ashley through Glittle Cupcake nom nom nom!

Accessories from Hardbody’s F/W collection were also available for purchase, I bought myself a cute ear piece with feathers and received another ear cuff as a gift! LOVE! I also received a pair of D. Brand denim and other goodies including stuff from ReedSpace! We also jammed out to music provided by DJ/Producer Lucas Fable.

If you weren’t able to make it, don’t you worry, there’s another one set for December and I hear it’s going to be even bigger! =)
