“Acting out of self-care can have a positive ripple effect on your feelings and on how you think about yourself.  If you’ve spent your money with conscious intention and with self-care in mind, then the action is likely to continue bolstering your mood even after the dopamine surge winds down.”  NYC-based psychologist Heather Silvestri, Ph.D.

While purchasing a new hair care line during the pandemic would be considered a risky financial decision, we whole heartedly believed in our conscious intention of bringing it to our clients.  We want to transport you to the calming blue waters and restorative tranquility of destinations like Capri, Positano and the Caribbean Islands.  We want you to experience that little bit of luxury with the reassurance that your home hair care is toxic free, pushes the boundaries of sustainability and financially supports global reforestation and environmental awareness efforts.  And most importantly, we want you to experience healthy hair like you’ve never experienced before!

Reopening our doors!!!

While we are so excited to open our doors and be of service to you once again, safety for all of us is our number one priority.  In order to safely and responsibly reopen we have had to make some changes.  We have removed half of our stations in order to ensure safe physical distancing for you and implemented a stringent safety and sanitation protocol.  Additionally, we are limiting the amount of clients we can see in the salon, in order to deeply clean and sanitize our workstations and high touch areas before each appointment.  Because of this, we are not able to take on any new clients.

We  want to continue to be a healthy and safe place and offer our expertise  and quality of service you’ve come to expect of us.  In order to keep our doors open and maintain a safe environment, you will see we have raised our rates  by 15%.  This new rate reflects our commitment to your safety, quality of service and reputation within the industry.

This  rate increase is an unavoidable part of doing business amid this pandemic, and we hope we can continue to serve you long into the future.  If you have any questions or need clarification, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

With that, the craziness of booking has started.  We implemented a system at the start of the shutdown to keep a fair system of booking for everyone.  What this means:  If you had an appointment already booked starting at the beginning of the shutdown,  you have priority.  We will prioritize from Wednesday, March 18 – today.  We will then move to the second stage of priority which will be online appointment requests.  The list starts with the day and time the inquiry was made, NOT the requested date.  For the time being, we will not be able to fulfill call in or text requsts and we will not be taking any new clients.  If you didn’t have an appointment already scheduled and would like to get on the list, please go to our website and book an online request.  Thank you for your patience as we are doing our best to get everyone booked AND get everyone’s hair done.

V Collective and Laurel Marshall. Thank you Wrensilva and Experia Creative!


Monday night, VCollective client Laurel Marshall, and Founder and CEO of Be Inspired! Coaching & Consulting, facilitated a group coaching event, where participants were introduced to a Healthy Mind Platter™ of seven essential activities necessary for optimum mental health.   We are bombarded daily with information on how to be physically healthy and resilient; a combination of exercise, rest and nutrition.  What we don’t always hear about, is what it takes to keep our minds alert, creative and resilient; it’s more than exercise, rest and nutrition, and each of us needs our own unique combination of these seven activities:  Focus Time, Play Time, Connecting time, Physical Time, Time In, Down Time, and Sleep Time.


The Healthy Mind Platter™ developed by Scientists Dr. Daniel J. Siegel, clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine, and Dr. David Rock, executive director of the NeuroLeadership Institute, is a tool used by Brain-Based Results Trained Coaches to help clients better appreciate how these seven daily activities make up the full set of “mental nutrients” that are needed to strengthen our brain’s internal connections and our connections with other people and the world around. By engaging every day in each of these “servings,” you promote integration in your life and enable your brain to coordinate and balance its activities.


Throughout the evening we explored and shared how we feel about the time we spend on each of these areas, and where we may want to reprioritize, or better balance our time and activities going forward.  We each took away an inspired action to try out as a personal goal in 2020.  As you think about resolutions and goals for the upcoming new year, new decade, what will you do to further your quest for a happy, healthy 2020?


For those of you who missed the event, Laurel will be launching a short series on LinkedIn each Monday, to share a little information on each of these 7 different activities, and inspire others to lean-in to the new year and try on some mind-healthy behaviors and create new habits.  You can hear more and follow Laurel’s follow up messages on a Healthy Mind Platter with the following links:
