Last Friday, I visited Mauricio Hair Studio Privato for a conditioning treatment, haircut and blow out. The three-chair salon is located at 210 Fifth Avenue, Suite 1102, between 25th and 26th Streets. The Flatiron studio opened a year ago, and also offers nail services and makeup application.
The salon uses 100% all-natural organic hair care including products from Intelligent Nutrients PureLuxe, Harmonic and Certified Organic collections and rahua. The atmosphere is intimate and zen-like and the experience feels really personalized since all the attention is on you. There are no distractions, no stress - just time to relax and get your hair cut and styled without feeling rushed.
Wendy shampooed my hair with Intelligent Ingredients PureLuxe harmonic shampoo, which had a minty aromatherapy scent. Even hours later my hair still smelled and felt minty fresh. I think I'm hooked on this shampoo! rahua conditioner was used on my hair as a leave-in, deep conditioning treatment for 15 minutes under the dryer. Mauricio gave me a fabulous cut and style, adding in some layers for volume and shape.
