Turn Any Light Into the Spotlight - A Blogger Beauty Extravaganza

First things first - congrats to @jesslyinCLE - she's my winner for the Marc's Great American Rib Cook-Off and Music Fest tickets! Comment #5 about the delicious City BBQ was the winning comment. Congrats!

I've always wanted to visit the Charles Scott Salon in Rocky River. Everyone has always said what a great place it is but I never made it across town to try it for myself.
Canopi held a really fun blogger event at Charles Scott hosted by Wella Professionals and Elle. It was a great way for everyone to mingle, chat and be spoiled for a night. And for me to finally check out the salon!
Well I can see why people love it! Everyone was SUPER sweet, friendly and talented. The space is a lot bigger than it looks from the outside and it's the perfect mix of soothing and fun. They have lots of rooms for spa treatments and if you decide to include lunch with your services, you can eat in the old bank vault that looks like a patio thanks to wall murals. As I was looking around, I couldn't help think what a great place for a a bridal party to get ready for the big day!
We were treated to an evening of beauty that included hair styling, make up touch ups and manicures. A new product I discovered is Wella's Beach Texture Spray - my stylist Keri used it before my updo for some added texture and hold.
Fellow bloggers, a DJ, bubbles...

...and lots of tasty nibbles ensured that this event was a fun party that felt like it ended way too soon. 
The delicious food was from Picc-A-Deli in Westlake

After getting pampering and primped, we didn't want the night to end!


In addition to the night of beauty and fun, we also got some samples of the Wella Brilliance shampoo, conditioner and hair treatment in a cute bag with an aluminum water bottle. 

The May issue of Elle magazine rounded out our swag bag. Doesn't Adele look amazing? Love her smokey eye. Hopefully the "gorgeous hair every day" article will help me prep my locks for the big day (only 134 more days!)

If you want to check out Wella, you can follow them on Twitter or Facebook. You can find Elle on PinterestTwitter and Facebook for beauty, fashion and more.

  2. I went there when I was a kid - when it first opened (I lived down the street basically). It's really changed since it first opened! Thanks for sharing the photos!

  4. I was really pleased with my party here. I would be the ideal person to have on an infomercial for this place if they ever had one, as I highly recommend these guys.
