This past Thursday, June 2nd, I was lucky enough to be a guest at the J & F Gemelli Salon Event at Stone Creek in Cary, NC. The event was sponsored by Elle magazine and was open to the public. It was a great atmosphere, and was very professional – the salon hired a DJ and photographer to add to the luxury of the event. Hors d’oeuvres and a wine bar completed the classy feel.
During the event, the salon’s stylists offered free color consultations, inviting guests to come back for color and highlights (all guests were given a $10 certificate valid at any of the salon’s three Triangle locations). The stylist who worked with me, Shayna, was amazing! She brought my eyebrows a few shades lighter, a procedure which three different salons in Chapel Hill and Durham have not been able to provide. Then, she used a gloss on my hair (which was dyed a golden blonde), which gave my hair more of a strawberry tint and looked more natural with my new eyebrows. It also made my hair really soft! To finish the look, she gave me a blowout – and the best part is that all of the styling was free!
The products J & F Gemelli used at the event were Wella cosmetics, a luxe line created by the same stylists behind haircare legend Sebastian Professional. The Wella products were 30 percent off at the event, so my sister and I made sure to stock up after seeing the wonders they had worked on our tresses. The complimentary Elle gift bags included Wella shampoo and conditioner sets, in addition to the June issue of the magazine.
If you missed the event, I recommend giving Wella products and the J & F Gemelli salon a look. The stylists are friendly and knowledgeable, and the prices are comparable to those of other salons.
