A Fresh Start with Click Salon and Monkee’s of Mountain Brook

Last year (wow, can you believe I’m saying that?!) I had a cinderella moment.  Actually, I felt a more like Pretty Woman, you know.  Except without the whole hooker thing… LOL.  Do you remember that line from She’s All That, circa 1999??  I die, haha!  And, I digress…

Anywho!  The experience was magical.  First I went to Click Salon in Pepper Place (Birmingham, AL).  It’s tucked away in the back part of the Pepper Place complex, although I supposed one could argue it is actually the front of the shopping center.

I had an appointment with Lindsey and she was FANTASTIC.  I needed color and a trim, so she got right on it.  Oh yeah, and btw, they serve wine!!  So, I had a glass, obvi. 😉

Next up, was shopping at Monkee’s of Mountain Brook.  I had never been in the store before, so I was excited to peruse their inventory.  I have to say, I was impressed with the mix of middle-to-high priced inventory. Everything from $20 fur poms to $400 Tom Ford sunnies.  Perfect for the woman who likes to mix it up!  I tried on a variety of items in the store and walked away with an amazing sheared rabbit fur vest from 525 Luxe.  I’m in love with it.  I left coveting the black dress with tulle shoulders, but may have to pick it up another time. 😉  Check out some of the fab items Monkee’s carries, below.

I had an amazing time and so can you!! If you are looking for a fresh start in 2016, perhaps these two places can provide just what you need.  Click Salon can give your mane the treatment it deserves, and then you can hop over to Monkee’s for a makeover!  Melissa Cunningham-Campbell is the owner of Monkee’s, but also an excellent fashion advisor if you are looking for some guidance.  A side-note about the store:  They occasionally carry vintage Chanel, so if you are in the market, make sure to let Melissa know!  She will take care of you!

Finally, I wish you an amazing first day of 2016!!  So much awaits us all this year.  Cheers to an amazing year!!!

Until next time!  Stay ‘Chic’!
