Sunday, November 13, 2011 I attended the Shic by Soketah Hair, Nail and Beauty Bar’s  Grand Opening party to support my hair stylist (she’s been doing my hair since the 6th grade!)and her business partners on their newest business venture – a full-service beauty salon.  This new spot, unique to the area, is owned by four young African American women (and long-time friends) Keisha Farrell, Sonia Lashley (my hair stylist), Kristal Thomas and Jamilla Martin.  I’m very excited for these ladies.

Shic by Soketah brings something new and chic to the neighborhood.  Unlike its sister salon, Soketah Hair Divas (across the street), at Shic you are afforded the opportunity to literally let your hair down without being embarrassed because of a male presence.  You can enjoy getting your hair, nails, and makeup done in a relaxed setting.    You may view their service menu here.

Who has time to troop here, there, and everywhere  to get a mani/pedi, and do their hair?  Shic by Soketah solves that problem.  I like  the option of being able to, if needed, having all beauty services, even makeup appplication all in one place.  Very convenient, especially for today’s busy woman.




During this event, attendees were able to receive a free express design manicure, express eye makeup application by Billie J and gift bag with a donation of $10 or more in support of the Brooklyn Young Mother’s Collective.  Attendees were also given the opportunity to take advantage of deals such as 15% off all Redken beauty products. 10% off all Fiji beauty products. As well as being able to receive 20% off of an appointment for a future date if made the day o the event.


A portion of all of the grand opening afternoon sales will be donated to Brooklyn Young Mothers’ Collective (BYMC). BYMC provides ongoing case management and education advocacy services to disadvantaged young mothers to ensure that young mothers experience educational success and self-sufficiency.


The salon is the perfect setting for regular pampering sessions and is also equipped to handle group or private events such as birthdays, girls night out, corporate events, bridal parties and special occasions.  I’m hoping to host my first blog event there.


They had a cute cupcake display.  Cupcakes were made by Tonnie’s Mini’s and they were good!
