Nick Arrojo Visits First Flagship Salon in East Cobb | People
MARIETTA, GA -- Over 300 guests gathered for a launch party at Intrigue Salon (1314 Johnson Ferry Road, Marietta, 30068) on Tuesday, Nov. 9 to officially welcome celebrity stylist Nick Arrojo to the East Cobb community and honor Intrigue as the first ARROJO flagship salon in the nation.
The day began as Nick consulted with stylists and guests on hairstyles and product advice while he took seven of his own haircut appointments throughout the day.
One of Nick's clients was Brittany Dasher of Atlanta, who entered a free makeover contest by purchasing three ARROJO products. She was selected to win by a random drawing.
"I'm amazed at how real and down to earth Nick is," Brittany said of her experience. "Even better than that, my hair feels 10 pounds lighter. I've never left the salon before and received so many compliments on my hair."
As the evening approached, the salon transformed into a club-like atmosphere. Guests enjoyed music by DJ Grey, and professional photographer Kyle Dettman was on hand to capture images from the evening. Nick signed books and took photos with clients and fans while everyone enjoyed appetizers and cocktails.
The room was filled with guests from all over the country, including area executives, press agents and reporters, Intrigue's loyal clientele, regular clients of Nick's, top salon owners and hairdressers, and other notable guests like author Echo Garrett.
Nick gave an inspirational speech that was applicable to not only the salon industry, but almost any field.
The motivational message was, "Being successful will come with hard work and surrounding yourself with good people who do the same."
John Henson, a top stylist at Intrigue, said, "Working next to Nick all day re-affirmed why I started doing hair in the first place. Creating a look for a client that has them leave the chair grinning from ear to ear in inspirational enough."
Nick will be back at Intrigue taking appointments on Friday, Feb. 25, 2011. Appointments with the celebrity stylist are priced at $500; he's already halfway to capacity. To make an appointment, call Casey Keeter at 770-977-3696.
