Check out the interview below and stay tuned for more about my visit to the salon along with a giveaway.

MNEE:  A what point did you know that you wanted to become a salon owner??
 PM:
After going to several salons in Atlanta, surrounding states and even abroad, I could never find a salon that I was truly happy about and yearned to return. It became my mission to establish a salon that catered to women and allowed them to feel comfortable, not judges, while receiving professional services. I knew that I wanted to combine my love for fashion, which is why I created a boutique component to the salon. It was important for me to have a fashion and beauty while building my brand. Women can come and relax and receive a full range of services here and leave feeling inspired from our positive sayings and pictures strategically place throughout the salon while being catered to in an upscale environment.
 

MNEE:   As a newly opened salon in the Atlanta/Marietta area, what makes your salon stand out among other salons in the area?

PM: 
The premise of my salon is based upon women empowerment. We are a boutique salon, which gives an intimate feeling while offering privacy and exclusivity to clients. We service the entire family while ensuring that customer service and the “full experience” is amazing, relaxing and professional. Our signature Breakfast at Tiffany’s theme is a favorite to a lot of our clients and adds to the glamour of the salon. We focus on healthy hair care in a professional Aveda Concept Salon setting. We are a multicultural salon and cater to all ethnicities while offering precision cuts, dimensional color and natural hair techniques that promotes growth and provide a “no heat damage” guarantee to all clients going from natural to straight. The majority of Aveda Salons cater to one specific demographic. We are able to cater to a wide variety of clients.

MNEE: As a business woman, what advice would you give to women who desire to start their own business??

PM: 
The most important advice is to follow your passion and not focus so much on the “whys” and the “how”! Never let fear deter you from your goals. 


MNEE:   What product lines do you carry in your salon??


PM: 
We are an Aveda Concept Salon so we carry Aveda products, Design Essential and Joico. We also carry our own brand of extensions-Preeminence Extensions: Brazilian Extensions in which we guarantee our hair for a year.


MNEE:    Tell us about your salon and what future clients should expect from their visit.


PM:  
We respect our client’s time and do not double book our stylists. Your appointment will start on time and the experience begins upon your entry to the salon. You are pampered and catered to while being relaxed and enjoying refreshing beverages and snacks. Soft elegant music is playing in the background while being serviced. It is a total experience!


  MNEE: Are there any other services that you offer you clients besides hair and makeup services?

PM:
We offer waxing services, we have recently added a barber to our staff so that women could bring their sons and significant others to the salon as well. The family unit is important to Preeminence and we wanted to ensure that the entire family was able to partake in the ultimate salon experience. We also offer make-up classes for beginner to intermediate levels including theatrical classes.

MNEE:   I love the Breakfast at Tiffany’s Theme for your Salon, why was this chosen for your salon?In essence do you feel it sums up the salon experience?


PM: Yes, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe are fashion icons but deeper than that they were esteemed women with timeless beauty and elegance whose era screams glam, beauty and class. We want women to feel beautiful, confident while carrying out the roles of wives, mothers, sisters, daughters and careers.

MNEE: I noticed that your salon does a lot to give back to the community, How important is it to you as a business owner to stay involved and give back to the community and why?

PM: It is imperative to give back to the community. We have partnered with several organizations throughout Marietta and Atlanta. Particularly our focus is to bring awareness to breast cancer patients-we are a Locs of Love salon participant, we also focus efforts in domestic violence and homeless shelters. Preeminence means superiority and we firmly believe that giving back to the community through various volunteer avenues speaks to the essence of who we are and our brand.

MNEE:  Could you tell us about your exclusive hair extension line that you offer your clients.

PM: 
We offer Preeminence Extensions, which are a line of Brazilian Extensions. We have various textures including Straight, Wavy, Curly and Jackson Wave, which is a deep ringlet curl. Our Preeminence Extension line comes with a year guarantee and is truly worth the investment. We carry our hair in our salon as well as it can be purchased via our website at www.preeminencesalon.com

My Experience: Walk-In Weaves by The Weave Express


Hello Blog Lovers!! I recently got a sew-in and I had to share with you guys my experience and let all of you that are stationed in the Atlanta Area  know about this hair salon that specializes in sew-in hair extensions! My Sister (MsSimplyStylish) and I had decided that once the weather changed that we would go get sew-ins for a form of protective styling for our own hair. We originally decided that we wanted to try The Weave Shop that began its humble beginnings in  Decatur, GA and has over the past few years expanded in numerous areas along the east coast. This particular weekend (this past weekend ) was a holiday weekend and we knew that there may be a possibility that we wouldn’t be able to get our desired styles at such short notice without making an appointment. Even though that posed as an issue for time we decided to give it a try.  The uniqueness about these particular  salons is that they specialize in weaves only and they have a process that gets the job done in a short period of time.  To make a long story short we decided to search for another salon that specialized in the same thing but would allow us to make appointments because the other salon only allowed walk-ins. We didn’t want to deal with long wait times so we decided to find another salon. Upon searching through Google I discovered Walk-In Weaves by the Weave Express. I was immediately greeted with a catchy song and a overall nice looking website. Although I noticed there were some differences in the pricing compared to The Weave Shop I noticed that what they offered and how they described how they executed their weaving techniques I felt it was a fair price for what they offered. After sharing with my sister what I found I decided to contact all three locations to see if they had an appointment available for the two of us. I was able to successfully schedule an appointment at their Dunwoody Location. I was greeted by a nice friendly receptionist who was willing to schedule and appointment for me and my sister at anytime we were able to make it, which was a plus and I was happy. 


The Experience

After finding the location via MapQuest (I don’t have a GPS so don’t judge me) with easy to follow directions My sister and I entered a mid-sized salon which was located in a shopping center. The walls were painted with a pretty combo of pink and green with black accent and very gorgeous pictures of their work done on models including Football Wives Star Chanita Foster. The receptionist was very friendly and greeted us with a smile and helped with choosing how we wanted our hair to be styled. We chose our styles and waited to be serviced. My sister went first and began her braiding process and once she was finished she was seated in the stylists chair for her to began the sew-in process. I was serviced next and I escorted to the braiding section of the salon  (the braider was also friendly) after my hair was braided down I was serviced by a woman by the name of Connie. She was friendly as well. I was able to relay to the two women that serviced me how I wanted my hair to be styled and cut and I definitely received what I wanted. My sister was also satisfied and pleased with her stylist Tiffanie. We have both made up our minds that we would go back for another visit when we decide to get another sew-in.

Quick Facts about Walk In Weaves:

1. They sell hair so if you don’t have time to make it to the hair store before it closes or whatever the case may be you can get hair at the salon and it’s affordable!!

2. They have three convenient locations College Park, GA; Buckhead, GA; and Dunwoody, GA.

3.They are a full service salon so they offer more than just sew-in weaves and the pricing is also affordable!!

You can find out more information here.

This is the next day I re-curled it..but the original style was fab. I chose the Legend Package

Disclaimer: I’m not affiliated with Walk-In Weaves by the Weave Express and I was not asked to do this blog posting nor was I paid to do this blog posting. This is my experience and I wanted to share it with my readers and who ever comes across this posting for review purposes.  I also can not compare this particular salon with other salons that offer similar services but I can say that they are one of a kind and you must experience it for yourself.
