Before this week, mega nail polish brand Essie could be found at over 100,000 salons across the country or at your local drug store. Now, Essie’s iconic shades have some where they can call home.
Essie now has a flagship salon and it seems like a dream come true for founder Essie Weingarten. “It’s really an out-of-bottle experience,” says Weingarten, who founded the brand in 1981. “For years, it was ‘I hope I can get my polishes into this nail bar or that salon,’ and they would call and place an order. Now when I drive down Sixty-fifth Street and see my name on the awning, I can’t believe it.” [SOURCE]
At this super clean and modern girl’s haven, a manicure will start at $32 and a pedicure at $65. The Essie Flagship Salon at Samuel Shriqui is located at 35 East Sixty-fifth Street in New York City. Although I expected a NYC location, it will be nice to see locations pop up all around the country. In the meantime, let me know how your NY Essie experience is after your first visit!
You may remember back in May when Angela Simmons announced her partnership with Indiqué Hair to launch her own extension line. Well, the day has come! Angela’s “BIKINI” line is now available.
“To me, hair is a statement and an extension of your wardrobe and I’ve always been drawn to fashion and being able to change up my look,” said Angela. She continued, “This partnership seemed natural, much like the naming of BIKINI. A BIKINI is the staple piece during the hot summer months or while on vacation, and the name perfectly describes the beachy texture of my first hair line.”
BIKINI from Angela Simmons by Indiqué Hair is retailing for $210 – $305 per 4oz tube. Indiqué Hair will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of BIKINI to CancerCare, a national organization whose mission is to provide free professional help to people will all types of cancers through counseling, education, information and referral, and direct financial assistance.
