Places Around Town: Salon Five

What is it about a good manicure that makes a woman feel like she can conquer the world? Is it the fresh coats of polish? Bold color? Or the fact that you can just relax? I'd say all of the above, plus a little TLC + a Girl's Night out is always good for the soul!

This past week, I had the pleasure of visiting Salon Five over in Little Five Points. The salon is adorable and the staff is extremely welcoming! My good friend Erica (of Eating with Erica) was hosting a Girl's Night Out! She knows how to throw a party, that's for sure. From beautiful flower arrangements to the food, the attention to detail was top notch!

After welcoming us to the event, Erica informed us that we would each be receiving services from gel manicures to foot massages. Talk about TLC. After a long week at work, a free coat of polish and massage is just what the doctor ordered!

After (several minutes of) deliberating, I opted for their Spa Manicure/Pedicure followed by my first threading experience. As I walked over to polishes, it was time for the the all important 'color choosing process.' This part is crucial. Do I want something "loud, yet fun" or do I want something a bit more "understated." I opted for my classic nude polish. Simple, clean (plus it goes with everything)!

After my manicure + pedicure, which was hands down (pun fully intended) the best, most relaxing manicure I've ever had, I shopped browsed around their gift section! Oh my goodness, if you're in need of a gift for your girlfriend, mother or co-worker, this is the place to find one. They have everything from Oka-B sandals to Votivo candles! One stop shop in my book.

Once I was done shopping browsing, I took a seat in one of Salon Five's plush chairs to have my eye brows threaded. I normally have my brows waxed every couple of weeks, but after hearing about the threading process I decided to give it a try! SO happy I did. My brows have never looked better. Threading your brows allows the shape to be more accurate and cuts back on the in-between time (aka I don't have to go every two weeks to have my brows done, now).

Seriously, I felt like BeyoncĂ©. Is this how she feels on the reg? With a fresh mani + pedi and my brows on point, I left the salon feeling like a million bucks! 

Thank you Erica for putting on such a fun Girl's Night Out! So thankful for all these ladies. Y'all are all #GirlBosses!

So, next time you're in need of a relaxing afternoon or evening after work, head on over to Salon Five! Your hands and feet will thank you!
