Let’s face it, we all adore getting pampered and long for any excuse to drink a little bubbly or rosé. So it truly is a blissful experience to have a beauty service done that leaves you feeling happy and beautiful, and it’s even more glorious when it doesn’t break the bank. Whether it is a quick blowout, a mood-defining manicure, or a rejuvenating facial, Nouvelle Beauty Bar (www.nouvellebeautybar.com), located at 475 Central Avenue in Downtown Saint Petersburg, Florida, is your one stop shop for your glamour needs.
Nouvelle is super chic with its modern and comfy white leather decorations; owned by Entrepreneur Thuy Le (pronounced TWE – featured in photo above). She’s got an excellent eye for design, showcased with the breathtakingly fabulous chandelier hanging in the waiting area, then continued throughout via the overall elegance and cohesive design of her salon. Thuy understands it’s all about the details, even down to the fun yet not so subtle innuendos that are displayed on each table.
Okay, I’m a sucker for wine. (Preferably wine with bubbles in a tall flute served to me by a handsome man.) When I arrived at Nouvelle for my pedicure, I got just that. (Well, minus the handsome man, but the receptionist, Tia, was sweet as can be with her cute eyes lined like a cat.) I was whisked away to my throne in the salon on a white leather high-back bench, kicked off my wedges, and dipped my toesies into the jet stream and it felt like heaven. The hot stones were therapeutic and I was so relaxed that I almost forgot I was working. At the end of the service, I felt beautiful on the inside and out. (When you make your appointment, ask for Dee, she did a phenomenal job!)
During my pedi, Thuy (who also owns La V, Vietnamese Restaurant a few doors down – which you can order from if you’d like to enjoy a snack during your pamper-sesh), popped into the salon. Sporting a floral mini skirt and lace-up camel heels, she greeted me with a warm smile and a quick chat. This woman is enchanting and so are her businesses.
Using all natural and organic products (and have I mentioned complimentary wine, yet?), Nouvelle has a wide range of services to offer. This includes manis, pedis, facials, blowouts, trims, waxing, and an on-call makeup artists for the days you are looking for an extra primp. It does not stop there, though. The Beauty Bar also provides noteworthy services for guys, such as the “man”-icure. Nouvelle wants to make sure that the little princesses are taken care of just like the queens, so they offer “It’s All About Her” services for the little ladies, too.
As you stroll down Central Avenue in Downtown St. Pete, feel free to walk-in Nouvelle Beauty Bar for a spur of the moment beauty fix, make an appointment during to visit during your lunch break, or plan your next soirée at the salon. They offer mobile services too, where you can have a memorable beauty experience in the comfort of your own home or before your big event. Don’t forget to tell them that Downtownstpete.com sent you!
