Paris for a Day: Camille Albane Salon Grand Opening

*Opens hypothetical door leading to a feathery pink room that is the blogging chamber of my brain*

*In a sing-song voice* Guess who’s baaaack!

Yes, you must be thinking to yourself as you stare at your computer screen, “This seems to be a recurring thing- disappearing and reappearing and continuing to do so in a viciously stylish cycle. We miss you!!!” Never fear, my loves, Kay B is here, and here to stay. I have some fun new posts and projects coming up and I do not want to miss a beat! Summer is finally here, and as the seasons have begun a fresh start, I have to. Enough chit-chat: Let’s start our fresh start together.

On Wednesday, DFW Style Daily hosted a party for the Grand Opening of Camille Albane, a renowned Parisian Salon that has now opened their first location in Texas. I had the chance to attend the petite fête and learn more about this stellar salon!

Let me offer you a little bit of background information. Camille Albane, as I mentioned before, is a well known Parisian salon that began in France in 1994 and has now not only established itself as one of the most popular franchised hair salons in Europe, but also extended its influential reach to other countries, including the U.S. This salon is unlike any other, and is quite a trend-setting organization.

Does the term balayage? sound familiar to you? If it does, then you have Camille Albane Salons to thank- the Dessange Paris chain that owns Camille Albane created the balayage trend in the early 1970s, and the hair coloring technique was grown and perfected in the Camille studios. For those of you currently scratching your heads, Balayage is a technique that offers a more natural and sun-kissed version of the popular ombre look. It’s one of the top “in” hair trend of the summer, and Camille Albane is the salon that popularized it.

Boasting 300 locations in 11 countries, Camille Albane has graced Texas with its very first salon by the franchise. DFW Style Daily’s leading ladies, Leah Frazier, Amber LaFrance, and Lisa Petty, hosted a fabulous soiree that included a giveaway, massages, a braid bar, and a makeup station.

Fun Fact: Every item in the salon, including the furniture, was imported from France! The employees of the new Texas location were even trained by Camille Albane professionals who were flown in from France!

Camille Albane offers several services and products, but the most interesting one, in my opinion, is their Natural Pigma shampoo.

The Natural Pigma Shampoo is unlike anything I have ever seen before. What this shampoo does is it temporarily colors your hair or revives the warmth and tones in your hair. Yes, you read that correctly, this shampoo can temporarily color your hair! There is a base for the shampoo that actually cleans your hair, then, with the help of a specialist at the Camille Albane salon, you can choose any combination of hair colors from the 11 options to be added to your shampoo. These colors can be customized to give you a new, brighter, or cooler color, to maintain the color of already dyed hair, or even to simply liven the color of your hair and make it more dimensional! The combination possibilities are endless, and you will be sure to get a color that is made just for you!

The best part is that this shampoo gives you color without the commitment. When you use the shampoo, it is best to leave it in your hair for 7-10 minutes for the best, most noticeable results. However, if you end up not liking the color you ended up with, just lather your hair up with your normal shampoo the next time you wash your hair, and that will wash the color right out!

I got to meet one of my readers (this lovely lady) at the party, too. She came up to me and said hi, she was such a sweetheart! If any of you see me out and about, please always feel free to come up and say hello. I don’t know what I would do without your support, and I love you guys! ❤
