Local Do: Femme Akoi Beauty Studio in Dunedin

by Jennifer Thai in ,


When it comes to my hair, I'm a little bit of a wild child. Cut it, color it, go crazy with it - I'm pretty much up for anything! So, when Femme Akoi Beauty Studio in Dunedin reached out to me to offer a service of my choice, my imagination started running wild with all of the possibilities.

For a little while, I was partially a redhead - I went from a burgundy wine red to a full-on firetruck red. Then, after becoming tired of the amount of maintenance that went into being a redhead, I opted for more natural caramel highlights. After two years of playing it cool, I was ready for some fun change. 

I'd been seeing gorgeous photos of dark-haired beauties rocking a rose gold or chocolate mauve balayage when scrolling through Pinterest for ideas. When I went in for the coloring session with my stylist, Misty (who is a Pravana master colorist), I explained to her that I loved both colors equally and was unsure which one to choose. What she put together, was something in between, and I AM IN LOVE.

From afar, and in the sunlight, the rose gold tones shine through. When you get closer, you can see slivers and peeks of the rich chocolate mauve. I feel like a unicorn, guys.

For you, Misty is offering a 20% discount on services if you're a new client - all you have to do is mention that you were referred by me! And, if you're wondering how much a balayage like mine would cost, it's $175 ($140 if you use my referral discount).

Dunedin, especially closer to the downtown area where Femme Akoi is located, is quickly becoming a go-to spot for discovering delicious eats and shopping finds. It's a charming area, and well-worth the 45-minute drive from Tampa. So, after you get your hair cut, colored, braided, styled, etc., plan on staying after to explore the downtown area!
