Remember how much I adore celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo and his killer line of hair products? Well, in a recent visit to Florida he invited me to Visions, an amazing ARROJO flagship salon in Wellington, for a once in a lifetime opportunity to have my hair cut and styled by him! I’m still pinching myself a little bit.
The experience started with cleansing my strands using ARROJO Color Save Shampoo and Conditioner – the perfect choice for color treated locks like mine. The Color Save products lock in vibrancy and shine while protecting color and preventing fading.
(Random fun fact: In a twist of small world fate, my friend Ashley, also a talented stylist, works at Visions and shampooed me. She was one of my first makeup models when I started doing makeup many moons ago.)
Nick sliced thin partings of hair then meticulously razored it section by section. He then blew it out using an ARROJO paddle brush and hairdryer. After fully removing the moisture, he point cut it dry so every strand blends beautifully.
To prep for styling, Nick used the Protective Thickening Lotion and the Shine Luxe Oil, both excellent thermal protectants. I’m now addicted to these two products! The Thickening Lotion does exactly what it says – and it really beefed up my skinny strands. The Shine Luxe Oil fights frizz and adds luster. You can use it to prep damp hair or even smooth on a tiny bit after heat styling to polish your finished style.
One of the things I really love about Nick is that he truly makes it an experience, not just a routine visit to the salon. He is not only talented and knowledgeable, but entertaining too. So much fun to be around!
(He was also a great sport while I was playing selfie paparazzi the whole time.)
He created a totally unique design while framing my face and adding a lot of dimension. My hair has so much movement now and feels so light and amazing. Best haircut ever! Here’s the finished result:
I felt like a million dollars, both during and after. With the New Year upon us, it’s the perfect time for a makeover, so if you are looking for a big change (or even a subtle one!) I’d definitely suggest booking an appointment with Nick or even one of the Nick approved stylists on his team.
