Recap: Braids, Buns and Bubbly at Alba Beauty Studio

We had a SUPER fun (and super packed!) “Braids, Buns and Bubbly” event at Alba Beauty Studio last week. The owner wanted to invite Cincy Chic’ers in for a fun night to showcase everything from their cocktails to their all-natural nail, hair, makeup, massage, brow and skincare services! Everyone looked SO fab as they left — here are a few pics I snapped of some of our attendees!

Staff Pamper Night at Alba Organic Beauty Studios!

Cincy Chic staff pamper night in our PJs!


It’s been a crazy year here at Cincy Chic! In January we celebrated eight years since launching (yes, EIGHT!!!), but since Lola was so little, and my right-hand-woman Stephanie also just had a baby, we delayed our annual staff outing.

In the past, we’ve done limo rides, shopping sprees, and fancy dinners. But I think after introducing two humans into the world, and the staff absorbing our responsibilities while we recovered, all anyone really wanted to do was spend a day at the spa.

During my pregnancy, I tried to go organic with everything from the foods I ate to the beauty products I used. I started spending a lot of time at Alba Organic Beauty Studios in Hyde Park and LOVED it. So, naturally that was the first place I wanted to go for the staff night.

When I called, they were amazing with all the planning of services and working around our schedules. They even did our nail services in the private studio space next door so we could all be in the same room getting our manis and pedis done! This would be a great place to take a bridal party to get primped before the big day! They also just got a liquor license, so you don’t have to worry about bringing anything — you can just order it there! (I suggest the Moscow Mule! Delish!)

We all got facials, massages, manis and pedis (and our dapper dude Drew got a new ‘do we’re DYING over!). Everyone love love loved it, so I wanted to do a post to give props and recommend them if you have a group you want to take to a spa/salon. Alba is the place to go! Oh, and they also share good deals if you “like” them on Facebook!

I’m really pumped about it because it’s going to be hosted at one of my favorite venues in town, ADC, the “gallery in the sky.” On the walls of the gallery (special just for our event!) the owner, Litsa Spanos, is going to feature local artists who use eco-conscious, repurposed materials in their pieces.

New Loyalty Program at Cincy Organic Stylebar!

I just got an email from my gals at Cincy Organic Stylebar because they’re offering a new Loyalty Program! I’m always telling people where I get my hair done, so now I’ll be earning points for it! haha! 🙂 Check out all the details below about it!

Rewards program or not, I actually really do love going there and telling people about it. I initially started going when I was preggo because they’re all organic, and I stayed because they do an amazing job on color (I go to Megan there FYI) and cuts, and their people are SUPER nice, talented and accommodating (they have been great with adding on last minute mani/pedi services, or fitting me in for a hair appt when I find a window in my busy mama schedule, and also making events special when I’ve brought my Cincy Chic team in for pampering!) HIGHLY recommended!!!
