Somewhere in the pagesÂ of the Miami girl’s fashion bible is a passage that reads: “Thou shalt never be fully dressed without full hair and make-up”. So the Miami gods createdÂ True Hair Miami Salon. The brainchild of extension queen Ellie Menocal, the chic Midtown salon is a one-stop-shop for all things hair and beauty. The service menu includes hair cuts and treatments, make-up, bronzing and, of course,Â Ellie’s famous long-lasting high quality extensions.
Recently we stopped by the salon to meet theÂ True Hair Miami team and to get readyÂ before our “Day at the Races”. We got our hairÂ and make-up done and even added a purpleÂ extension to spice up our look. The team did an incredible job of making us look fabulous while meeting our natural make-up, low maintenance people demands. Most of all, they made the experience incredibly fun.
Of course, there was bubbly and, of course, there were cupcakes, but the piÃ¨ce de resistance was the people. Ellie has assembled a team of professionals that are friendly, knowledgeable, and have some incredible stories to tell. Our time in Gustavo’s stylingÂ chair was therapeutic and educational. He expertly balanced the conversation between sharing stories ofÂ his enviable life,Â giving us much-needed advice, and answering our most pressing beauty questions.Â It is a testament to his skills that he did soÂ while taking our hair from bedhead toÂ bombshell.
We will let the photos from our visit speak for themselves. A huge thanks to Ellie for the hospitality, Gustavo for our hair, Vanessa for our make-up, and Robin for the photos. You guys rock!Thank you for using Soul Of Miami!
