Marie-Lou & D

I was in need of a little pampering (who isn’t?), so I headed to Marie-Lou & D, a brand-new salon and spa in Soho.

Most salons in New York are modern and stark, as if they’re trying very, very hard to be trendy. Marie-Lou & D’s decor flies in the face of convention, and instead is warm and inviting. You feel like you’re in a chic, French-inspired salon, which is much more relaxing.

Marie-Lou & D’s menu is extensive. It offers everything from haircuts, highlights and color to manicures, pedicures, facials, massages and waxing.

I sat down with Tre for a much-needed haircut.

The best part about Marie-Lou & D? Their shampoo chairs are massage chairs! That, combined with an amazing scalp massage, made it incredibly difficult to get up!

You would think that after all of these beauty posts I would have mastered the art of taking selfies without looking awkward. Apparently not…

Every time I go for a haircut, I always want to try something crazy (like bangs!) because I’m bored with my look. Instead of going along with my whims, Tre suggested that I learn different styling techniques to take my look to a new level. So as he cut, he gave me several tips for changing up my look, minus the bangs.

Usually salon visits stress me out. The blowdryers are loud, the room is hot, and the atmosphere makes me feel like I’m not cool enough to be there. Marie-Lou & D is the calmest salon I’ve been to. I was incredibly relaxed throughout the process, the noise level was at a minimum, and everyone was incredibly friendly and warm. It wasn’t stressy at all!

**Update: I went back to Marie-Lou & D multiple times after I wrote this post and had several bad experiences. Therefore I no longer recommend it, and instead suggest you go here when you need highlights and/or a cut.**
