Charlotte Summer Beauty from Some Favorite Local Salons & Businesses

Way back in the “Before Times” we talked to several local beauty biz about hosting some sort of CLT Beauty Meet Up Event. Oh Well Best Laid Plans, etc.; we’ll get around to it eventually.

Still summer is here, and just ’cause we’re being careful about our health (and that of our community), we don’t have to forego looking good all-together. Now that salons have been able to open with safety protocols in place, we wanted to highlight a few local businesses who had planned to join in our CLT Beauty Bash. Deals included.

blü nail laquer

Scoop Deal ~ Use code BluScoop for 20% off orders through June 30, 2020

Many cosmetic products, as well as nail polish, are filled with toxic and harmful chemicals. 10-Free, simply means that our nail lacquer is cruelty-free. The number indicates that we are free from 10 common toxins associated with the standard polish.
Blü was created to dry quickly, with two coats and its guaranteed to last 4 days for sure! It is also a 10-free Vegan product. 
Price: 8.00 per bottle

Owner & creator Keyah Greer tells us, “as long as I can recall, I have had a love for painting my nails, over the years I have collected many, many bottles so much so I often give it away to keep my growing collection under control. Keeping my nails polished is an activity which I’ve come to find relaxing.

Starting Blu Nail Laquer has been a dream of mine since my friend Renee spent years raving about the colors and quality of polishes I created for myself. I’m known to wear vibrant, high gloss colors that reflect my personality, but I struggled to find these polishes available in stores. As a middle school science teacher, my inner chemist came out and I turned my kitchen into a laboratory to mix the collection that I’ve wanted to wear.

When I’m not obsessing over pigments, bottle design and all things nail polish, I spend time with my nine-year-old son, and with my sisters of Delta Sigma Theta. We love to explore all Charlotte has to offer!”

Kenna Kunijo

Lauren and Kenna met four years ago and quickly discovered that, for each of them, their mission was birthed from a heart of compassion. “Our passion is to bridge the gap between one’s true inward beauty and the outward beauty our society seems to be obsessed with.” We created our salon with a fire and a drive to empower women with confidence that comes from deep within. Early on, we partnered with a local organization that rescues and houses women who have been victims of human trafficking. At Kenna Kunijo, it is our sincere hope that we will make a lasting impact on our community through generosity, open arms, and our quest to build others up.

We realized from the onset that together we could invest in more people and make a bigger impact than we ever could have working on our own. “The rest is history.” The Kenna Kunijo team is made up of a group of unique ladies who each bring something special to KK. We have both a stylist and a support team, both lead by our fabulous manger, Mackenzie. We couldn’t have one without the other. Each gives their all while providing every guest with a positive experience each time they step into our cozy space.
