Chicago's Halfstack Magazine and the Johnathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa hosted a Holiday Beauty Bar Event on Thursday November 14. This memorable event was held at the fab Jonathan Breitung Salon & Luxury Spa (and let me see it was definitely a beauty). So not only were you treated to complimentary salon services (which were AMAZING), but also vendors which included the amazing Archer Townsend for the women, Fermented Fruit Clothing for those with an edge, Sarah Church (yes she sells vintage clothing too), and Monarc for the gentlemen and more! Archer Townsend apparel was on site and had the most amazingly buttery soft fabric anyone has ever had the pleasure of placing their hands on. Made from a lightweight silk and modal, it didn’t only feel amazing, but was crafted into some of the best looking garments I have ever laid my eyes on. Monarc was also there with some cool looking dress ties in all colors and prints for the stylish and fashion forward man; It was definitely a feast for the eyes. On top of all the great looking merchandise, photos were taken by the amazing Stephanie Battista who was available for some fun whimsical snap shots. There were silly glasses, mustaches on sticks and other props and go wild with!!!
Everyone had an awesome time and got to enjoy fun company in such a fantastic setting. The event was catered by Himalayan Restaurant and sponsored by Moroccan Oil, Dermalogica and GIV Mobile as well as Bumble and Bumble who contributed to the goodie bags handed out to the first 100 guests containing some of fall’s must have beauty products (yes we were spoiled)! The food was fantastic along with the drinks which consisted of Absolut and cranberry or red wine. While sipping on the drinks, the salon provided celebrity treatment to all who attended with services including hot tool styling, manicures, make up application, and massages all while a DJ BLK GLSS played the latest music. There was even a palm reader for anyone who wanted to learn a little more about themselves which 100% of the proceeds went to the Jr. Campuzano Fund (which is Estrella Modas very own Stella)!
I had an awesome time during the entire event. The treatment I received from the moment I walked in the door was beyond great and I felt like the staff really cared about everyone. The entire atmosphere of the salon was laidback, and high end. Everywhere you looked you could see the smiling, laughing faces of people having a great time and getting to experience some great products and services. The goodie bag included a 15% coupon for a service at my next visit, which will obviously be used on an oxygen facial. The salon was super clean and everyone was so professional, it’s a definite must for your next salon visit!!! So remember to keep an eye on more events that the stellar HalfStack Magazine creates (they are GREAT) and check out the Johnathan Breitung Salon if you still haven't, you'll love it!!!
