    Hey girl!

    Thank you so much for writing this blog post! I live in Philly and will be visiting Paris next month to celebrate my birthday. I’ve been searching for a reasonably priced salon, more specifically a Dominican salon, to get my hair done while I’m there. I knew it would be a bit difficult but thanks to your blog and the fact that Dominicans are everywhere I am so hype to check this place out. Do you know if they are open on Sundays? Also, do you have any suggestions on make up artists?

    Thank you !

    • Hey Christina, so glad I could be of help! As far as the days the salon is open, they are open daily except for Sunday. To be honest, most days things are closed in Paris on a Sunday in Paris. You’re best bet is to go during the week. As far as makeup artists, I have never gone to any in Paris to be quite honest. I hate to say it, but perhaps you could roll up into a Mac or dare I say Sephora and get your makeup done with an artist here. I will say this, Sephora back in the states has a bd rep for doing women of color and their makeup haphazardly, but in Paris they are really on point. I would suggest visiting the Sephora on Champs Elysees when you arrive. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me via e-mail at itsherword@gmail.com

    Yaass!! Thanks for this ! Second time around in Paris for an extended period of time. Last time, I didn’t even bother looking for a place to do my hair. I’d just wash it and go. As a Dominican who has lived in DR and NY, I appreciated this blog. Now, I can go get my hair slayed. Graciiass!
