mark garrison salon.

maintaining slightly red hair is just not easy. this means color touch-ups are needed with a frequency, which in turn means i get to try out all the salons you beauties are curious about.

last friday, it meant i headed to the luxurious mark garrison salon at 108 east 60th st. patricia, a color genius, listened to me babble about the warm, red-rich brown tone that i prefer and assessed the several shades and variations of color my hair had faded to.

then, she did something no one has ever done to my hair before, she took away color! she decided the ends of my hair were darker than my desired shade, so she put a treatment on them to lighten it up, before doing the overall color. but then after the overall color was through, my roots took the color better then the rest of my hair, so she darkened them up for me. and voila! this fantastic patricia somehow managed to make my hair all the same color (with the number of times it's been dyed this is no small feat, let me tell you).

feeling quite satisfied with my color i was sent downstairs for a fantastic blowout, which was doubly perfect because it was friday evening! i was allowed to get my blowout however i wanted (so of course i chose volume-y!). and i worked this blowout into my saturday night.

for personal service in a refreshing setting, check out mark garrison salon, online at markgarrisonsalon.com or give them a call at 212.400.8000. i recommend patricia!

Very nice beauty blog you have here. Found your blog after searching information for makeup reviews. Thanks for the great information!

My name is Irene and I'm involved in an online beauty community website called http://www.ColorMeGorgeous.com. I was hoping that you would have a minute to check out the site and perhaps if you liked what you saw... write about it on your blog?

I may be going out on a limb by asking you for promotional help through your blog, but I hope you find ColorMeGorgeous.com to be as news worthy/helpful as I perceive it to be. There's still a lot of work to be done with it, but I'm working on it. It's hard to compete when you're a small fish in a huge sea with huge sites like MUA and the likes, but I do what I can :) My favorite part of the site is the 'critic's corner' where members can review or read up on various product reviews for makeup and skincare. Then there's always the forum, the photo gallery, the ask a makeup artist page, etc.

Thanks for your time :)
