Ahhhh…Paris. It brings to mind beautiful spring days with a stop at an outdoor cafe for a croissant or perhaps a glass of wine. It also brings to mind beautiful fashion and the latest in beauty trends. The latter is the speciality of Camille Albane Paris.
Camille Albane Paris is opening their second US location and it is right here in my backyard in Maple Grove, Minnesota. You may not be familiar with Camilla Albane, but this salon (named for its founder) started in Paris in 1994. Now Camille Albane has nearly 300 salons in 11 countries. Camille Albane’s French heritage and 20 year legacy bring chic and trendy hair and makeup looks straight from Paris. They are internationally recognized for their elite expertise in styling and colouring techniques, make-up and nails. Their goal is to have their stylists collaborate to create a style that conveys each client’s personality boldly through beauty.
I had a chance to visit the Maple Grove location in advance of their Grand Opening tonight. The salon itself looks amazing with it’s white base accented with pops of bright orange and red. Even the stylists are dressed in white from head to toe.
I even love their shampoo chairs. Those cozy chairs not only offer adjustable footrests, but also offer massage as well – as if a nice shampoo isn’t already relaxing enough!
But the star of the show at Camille Albane Paris is definitely their services. To sum it up before I even get started – I visited for a cut and color and came home to my husband saying he thinks it just may be the best cut I have ever had. My stylist, Nicole, took her time discussing my hair with me. She asked what I liked and disliked about my hair and what I WANTED it to do. I appreciated her really analyzing what would be the best for me in terms of both cut and color.
I’m used to stylists using scissors to cut my hair, but all Camille Albane stylists are trained in razor haircutting, which is the salon’s signature. For the hair color, they practice balayage, which is a technique of painting the color onto the strands of hair. A nice added touch is that all stylists are also trained in makeup touch-ups, so I had a nice “put together” and complete look when I walked out of the salon.
