I fell in love on Friday. I don’t know whether it was the Parisian decor (like the stand full of pretty polka dot umbrellas and a jar of pastel taffy), my hair full of soft, sex kitten-y curls, or the gorgeous wood-framed mirrors with Swarovski “druzy,” but La Bichette salon has stolen my heart. The new blow dry bar is owned and operated by Marsha and Tammy Coleman, a mom and daughter duo, who have turned the space into a French-inspired beauty Utopia. You’ll want to come here for a blowout ($35), makeup application ($10-$50), or both. Have a seat in the pearl chairs and order a style off the menu. Perhaps, Yvette soft curls, Violette 40s starlet hair, a Milkmaid Braid headband braid, or any of the these menu offerings. Every detail here, from the complimentary pink champagne to letterpress gift cards, is très chic. They even created their own haircare elixirs (shampoo, conditioner, and serum) with safer ingredients, eco-friendly, refillable aluminum bottles, and of course, labels so sweet you’ll want to use them as decor.
