Eden by Eden Sassoon in West Hollywood, is the world’s first ever ‘Finishing Salon’. Eden is the daughter of legendary Vidal Sassoon.
A pedicure, a blow dry, and full make-up, cost me $90. The general idea of a finishing salon, is to provide high quality services, at affordable prices – for busy women. They will work to the time frame that you have available – it is a one stop shop for beauty.
Eden is somewhere in-between a blow dry bar, and a full-service hairdressers . It’s the perfect place to go before a night out, or before an event – or in LA’s case – before an audition.
I found the salon extremely relaxing to be in. A blow dry bar has always felt to me a little rushed and impersonal – and there wasn’t the faintest trace of that here – even though the price of a blow dry is exactly the same.
I had my pedicure with Chi, after picking my Essie colour ‘Ole Caliente’ I rested back and fell straight to sleep. I was completely and utterly relaxed.
Lisamarie did my hair – Phyto products are used at the basin – and when it comes to a blow dry, you can chose any style that you like.
The lovely Carissa Ferreri did my make-up with ‘Smashbox’ – the American make-up brand that I have never used a great deal of. There are such lovely products. My favourite being ‘Halo Long Wear Blush’ in Peachy Dream. The primers are also excellent.
