Pin and Plait Studio
Hairstyling techniques have evolved so much in the last year. It feels more frequently, and easily than ever before, hairstylists are innovating and sharing some of the coolest techniques. As a human with a head of hair, it's often so hard to keep up with it all, or know that your stylist is keeping up with it all. Lucky for you, I have an awesome team of stylists to intoduce you to, and if your looking for someone who's studying and practicing all the latest trends, you need to be introduced to Jamie Dana at Pin and Plait.
Pin and Plait is a Salon Studio within the Phenix Salon Suites that just opened in Lake Forest. If you aren't familiar with the Phenix Salon Suites, and you're a stylist looking to get your own space, you should research, this seems like a pretty sweet deal.
When first meeting Jamie over coffee, I couldn't help but love her energy, positivity, and understanding of what it takes to master some of the newest hair trends. After we chatted about getting to the perfect balyage, she introduced me to her new studio, which she just opened on August 25th of this year, and it is so adorable. The space is cozy, but super clean and organized. Mostly white, with accents of gold, warm texture, and a large window that's perfect for coffee on a rainy day. The studio is big enough for Jamie's creativity, but nothing more. Nothing else is needed.
Along the lines of Jamie doing her own thing, the walls of product are stocked with only the favorites. Some are Jamie's favorites, and others are client favorites, but given her small space she doesn't carry full lines for the most part. If you're going to visit her space just for product, make sure to call ahead to check on stock. Unless you were using this as and excuse to visit, which I may do soon.
So who exactly makes the cut on the Pin and Plait shelves? Here are the winners:
ENJOY Hair Care- The price point is affordable, and their sulfate free Shampoos have the best suds.
Moroccan Oil- let's face it, this was the product that got us all obsessed with hair oil. We'll never forget how silky soft our hair was after that first use. Pin and Plait mostly stocks the Treatment and Hairsprays.
EVO Hair Care- EVO seriously has some of the most entertaining packaging around, and their products rock!
kms California- This is a fan favorite around Pin and Plait, and although they only carry a few gems from this line, the ones they do carry are well loved.
