A PLACE FOR PRETTY

This weekend, I had the opportunity to visit the chic new Parlor: A Beauty Bar and get to know the staff, all while enjoying a blow out and makeup. Parlor officially opens on the Kansas City Country Club Plaza today and I couldn't be more ready for another styling session.

First off, I didn't take a full shot of the beauty bar, which means you will have to visit it for yourself. Gold chevron walls, all white furniture and sleek decor make up Parlor. When you walk in, you'll likely be greeted by the bubbly owner, Meg. I arrived early on Saturday morning, with a vanilla latte in hand and with my equally beauty-obsessed best friend (see my not-so-pretty "before" photo below.) After an introduction to the beauty products available, including hair care, styling and makeup, I was sent to stylist Kim for my consultation. 

I couldn't decide between the "Beach Wave," which is my go-to hairstyle already and the "Lush." My stylist Kim told me I could combine the two, which I gladly did! After a shampoo, she got to work on curling, smoothing and adding volume to my otherwise flat hair. My friend went with a completely opposite look, "The Stick" which was a super sleek and straight style.

And voila! 

I couldn't ask for a more friendly staff, chic atmosphere and unique styling experience. I plan on making Parlor a frequent stop for pre-event styling or for those days when you just need a blow out.
