Look out a new neighbor has arrived in Bedford-Stuyvesant and itâ€™s not who you think it is. The neighborhood that is often referred to as â€œdo or dieâ€, hardly seems to be recognizable. â€œLive from Bedford-Stuyvesantâ€ (Biggie voice). A Sexy, chic and fabulous shop has made its way to 164 Macon Street in Brooklyn, NY. The lovely brownstone opened its door with a beauty lounge called Luxe Beauty Lounge catering its service to hair and makeup. Ownersâ€™ mother and daughter-in-law duo Sharae and Crystal held a launch party with a sneak preview of whatâ€™s to come. Doors opened at 3pm with press and guests arriving into a contemporary and neutral setting. The first 50 guests to arrive received a goody bag upon leaving the event. The sponsor Morgan Magazine welcomed guests with a selection of drinks and refreshments to kick off the party. The selection included wine, jell-o shots, energy drinks, fruit tarts and sweet potato cheesecake (yummy). While guests observed the scenery or mingled the sound of 90s music played. I couldnâ€™t help, but think how good music was when I was a kid. Real talent and not a lot of the gimmicks that we have in todayâ€™s entertainment.
Those who grew up in that era can agree or disagree. Letâ€™s not make this the topic of discussion, I digress.
With all of the competition in the beauty world, I know many may think that this salon is no different. However, it is by not being your average hair salon. It is a weave and makeup lounge providing services of lace fronts, color, cuts and full face. There is a juice bar and clients will receive complimentary drinks (beer & wine) during their service. No official date on the launch of Luxe, but to expect an opening in December. For those interested, visit www.luxebeautyloungebk.com. If you are in the area, donâ€™t be afraid to stop by and say hi to the lovely ladies. When Luxe opens and after your weave is done, pull a Beyonce and pat it.
