Fashion and style has always been my thing and the good news is I work in a place where I get to enjoy the practical aspect of it and not just write about it.
Mondays for every working lady including myself has always been a hassle. I struggle through the traffic to get to work, frown my face for the better part of the day (just so no one talks to me) and end up leaving the office later than usual.
But for the first time in a long while I couldn’t wait for Monday to come and this was because it was the Style Vitae Saloon day out at the Hairven’s Hair Bar. Just in case you were wondering why I was involved? I am certainly a part of the team as I contribute once in a while so I deserve to be pampered too 😛 .
The Hairven brand is known for their hair extension care products and treatment of damaged hair. The Brand recently expanded it’s business with the launch of their in-house hair salon. That explains the excitement I felt when we were invited for a Hairven experience.
I met up with my colleagues from Style Vitae at the Saloon and we immediately got down to the business of the day. First, we started by washing the weave. We started off by removing thread from the weft of the weave due to previous use and moved on to washing with shampoo.
Next up was conditioning. And I must confess that the conditioner is one of it’s kind, it immediately softens and rejuvenates the hair. After applying the conditioner to the weave, we had to leave weave for about 5 minutes before rinsing off.
My hair needed some washing and so we moved on to get that aspect sorted out.
While waiting for the weaves to get dry, we got down to weaving our hair and preparing to get it installed.
My weave and that of my colleague, Nimide Ogbeun, got installed and styled by the famous Mr Peter (the stylist).
The Editor of Style Vitae, Samantha Dimka, also experienced the gentle touch of Mr Peter’s hands as he styled her long natural hair to perfection.
At the end of it all, It was a HAIRVENly experience and a Monday to remember!
A big THANK YOU to our very wonderful host and Co CEO of the Hairven Brand, Juwa Agbeyegbe and the HAIRVEN team for the amazing treat and also my gift bag.
