My Experience at Alle'nora Salon

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Alle'nora  Annie's Signature Salon located in Zamzama. The entire staff was super friendly and helpful. I received my very first Straight Blow Out which I never thought my hair could take because even with a hair straightener my hair still stays wavy at the tips.

As soon as I entered the salon I was greeted by the receptionist, then I met Ghazia, the Zamzama branch manager. She was a delight to meet, full of energy and ideas on what services that I can try. From there I decided on a manicure and a straight blow out.

My Straight Blow Out:

The blow out was done without any damage to my hair. They used Chi Straight Guard and Wella High Hair to ensure that no damage will be done to my hair.  The blow out wasn't uncomfortable at all, I feared having my hair ripped off but it was nothing like that. The entire environment was calm and comfortable and hygienic.

The Results!
The products they used worked really well along with the styling tools. The stylistic did a great job on my hair, it managed to stay straight for 2 days until I shampoo.

My Manicure:
The manicure area is really relaxing, with comfortable seats and a calming atmosphere. They currently have nail art, OPI and Color Studio manicures as well as gel nails!
The Results!
I picked out a very metallic shade, which the flash photography just didn't do the color justice. My cuticles were very dry even after the manicure so I was suggested to do regular maintenance of my nails.  
What really makes a salon environment comfortable for me is the staff. They will listen to you and ask what you want.  I rarely visit salons so the experience was quite pleasant. I'm very pleased with the end result and my salon experience. If you have never visited Alle'nora you can expect quality customer service with a staff that will guide you with the right beauty tips and products!
