The Perfect HUE

BAUHAUS.

The German term Bauhaus—literally “construction house”—was understood as meaning “School of Building”.

-A triangle, circle and square are the shapes that create everything we see on earth. I even have a tattoo on my neck representing this symbolic constructivism.

A GIRL’S DAYDREAM BECOMES A REALITY

There is an old saying that “women make good cooks, but men make better chefs.” Setting aside the inaccuracy of this statement, it does tell us something important about the way that society looks at the roles of men and women in the kitchen.

Be Bold. Be Beautiful.

We go to salons because we want to feel different. Whether it’s a simple trim or dramatic color transformation, nothing can help a person feel confident and ready for anything like a day at the hair salon.

I walked into HUE Salons on Marketplace Drive looking for change and expecting palpable transformation. I not only got just that, but I received the kind of immersive beauty experience that I don’t just crave, but one that I feel is often missing in typical hair and beauty settings.Continue reading
