As a Glamour Glambassador, I hosted an event sponsored by Glamour and Paul Mitchell at Salon CARU at 104 Hudson Street in Hoboken on Wednesday, October 17th. Bloggers and friends enjoyed complimentary blow-outs and hors d'oeuvres. The event featured the two newest Paul Mitchell collections - Curls and Blonde.
The entire staff at CARU was incredibly friendly and really made us feel welcomed. I've often felt rushed at many of the salons I've been to but the CARU stylists really took their time with us. Thank you to Denis for an amazing mini scalp massage treatment. I was surprised when he told me he used Paul Mitchell Forever Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner on my hair. Apparently it's not just for blondes and keeps hair hydrated and healthy! Thank you to my stylist Amanda who gave me some natural waves while building up texture in my hair with Paul Mitchell products. Even though I don't have naturally curly hair, I can still use Paul Mitchell Curls Twirl Around or Ultimate Wave products as styling aids. Twirl around is a two-part styler smoothing gel and hydrating cream helping to create curls without leaving a hard, crunchy feel. Ultimate Wave cream-gel adds texture for a beachy hair look.
CARU really caters to its clients, offering validated parking for two hours and is open until 10pm on Tues-Friday. Nice to know I'm not limited to lunchtime or the weekend to book a hair appointment and coming from the city, it's just a five-minute walk from the Hoboken PATH train. I also love the uniqueness of CARU, from the blow dryers extending from the ceiling to the inspiring blow-out menu listed on the wall.
Many thanks to the owner of CARU, Colin Caruso and his styling team for having us, and a big thank you to Glamour and Paul Mitchell for having me host the event. Thank you to all my guests who attended!
