Lali Lali Grand Opening Event

Last night's grand opening event for Soho's newest, and by farrrrrrr hottest salon, Lali Lali, was an absolute blast! I hadn't seen the space since it was under construction when we conducted our photo shoot there back in December, but WOW, WOW, WOW did it turn out aaaamazzzzingggggg! Lali Lali entertained us with a fashion show that was broadcasted live on, and for good reason. Partnered up with LF boutiques, the runway show, which featured their to-die-for spring/summer 2010 collection, was true to LF's brand: young, ahead of the curve trend-wise, and superrrrrrr fun! We were served deliciously decadent hor d'oeuvres, classic red and white wines, and were even treated to massages! Bravo, Lali Lali, bravo for an out-of-this-world party! And honestly, I cannot think of a more sick or tottttttallly chic place to go for hair and make-up styling. Not only does the salon boast that it will be the home to some world renowned hair stylist, but overall, let's be serious (you'll see from the pictures below), this place is clearly the epitome of what you'd expect from a real salon in NYC. It's beyond compare.


And here's a peek at what was happening backstage before the show:
Me & Salon Owner, Megha Duggal

Love the fact that MK Olsen shops for her own groceries. And carries them. And takes a Cab. AND looks damn good doing it.

As one of their top selling premier products it seriously, we kid you not, worked wonders. Our Belle, B, who frequently complains about her extremely thick and wavy hair named it "the best iron I have ever used...and I have used A LOT of hair irons!" She further commented, "it heats up quickly, was gentle on my hair, and best of all did not leave a trace of that awful burning hair stench! I definitely recommend the Hana Elite and will certainly be using it as my flat iron from here on out."

And we've made it soooo simple to win yourself your very own Hana Elite Flat Iron, a $204.99 value! Like our SATC Tour Giveaway, we are giving you some options. You can choose to:

or lastly 3. You can leave a comment or click the"like" button once you've joined us on our Facebook Fan Page (see our Facebook Fan Page here)!
If you choose to do all of the above, you will be entered in the raffle three times (each action will guarantee you one raffle entry). We will choose a winner at the end of this week (You will have until Midnight on Sunday May 23. Winner will be announced the morning of Monday May 24.), so get your tweets, comments, and Facebook "thumb-ups" in ASAP for the chance to secure yourself a brand new, hot (yes, pun intended!)
