Boho Balayage Brooklyn

Boho Balayage


We are two hairstylists who lost their jobs due to Pandemic. Together we opened a pop-up salon in a garden apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

We hope this message finds you well

There has been a lot of bad news in the pandemic, including Le Panache Loft’s recent closure. We warmly thank you for your business and your loyalty, whether we saw you there or elsewhere.

But here's some good news! We're running a Pop-up Hair Salon.

After numerous client requests, we are now offering color, cuts, hair extensions, and formaldehyde-free keratin treatments. 

Yes, we are currently open in a garden apartment in Williamsburg. Even more exciting, Kimberly and I are now making home visits if you have an outdoor space or a spacious room with good air circulation and a sink with a faucet hose.

We will wear masks, and we ask that you do the same. If indoors, we also ask that only one person is in the room with Kimberly or me. I’m sure you understand. We want our clients to be healthy and beautiful!

We also ask that you be flexible. When necessary, you will need to wash your hair yourself to prepare it for the Cezanne hair smoothing treatment or another service. Also, if you are new to us, we’ll ask you to send a few pictures of your hair in advance.

So, that’s our exciting news! We can’t wait to see you again! Please text or email to book your appointment.

See our service page for pricing and answers to FAQ.

Our Customers Love Us

Ruxandra is an absolute genius with color – especially for Platinum Blondes – she’s the best there is! My hair has never had such a beautiful, cool hue (no brass!), and retained so much moisture and health. She knows everything about the chemicals of color. Run, don’t walk, to see her for color!

I found Ruxandra on IG and just knew she would be amazing for the platinum blonde color I needed for my wedding. And of course, she over-exceeded my expectations and did a phenomenal job! She got the exact tone I wanted while keeping my hair healthy and happy! Flawless and consistent results from an incredible hair stylist and colorist. Thank you so much Ruxandra, you helped me look my absolute best on the best day of my life!

The women here are incredible. You leave feeling like a different person. Kim is my go to for extensions cut and color. She saved my broken hair!!! One thing that really impressed me is that she matched my highlights to my extensions. These ladies are super kind down to earth funny and a good time. Been here 3 times and will continue to keep coming. Highly recommend.
Business Owner
Absolutely loved this place. First of all the salon is amazing and the owner is absolutely fantastic. But even more Ruxandra who does my hair is so great. I have been following her now for couple of years as she knows what she is doing, she does amazing colors, has tons of ideas and great technique and on top of it, she goes above and beyond to please you, make sure you leave the salon 100% happy. She is fantastic and I really cannot say enough good thing about her. Every time I see her is an absolute pleasure and I am always happy with my hair color/balayage whenever its done. Thank you Ruxandra!!
Singer & Song Writer
Thanks for giving me the strawberry-peach-rose-gold shade of my dreams! It's such a unique (yet manageable) color that will allow me to go longer in-between visits and restore the health back to my hair post-platinum. Love it!
Katie Sadler
My friend and I wanted to have a girls day and the interior of Le Panache Loft caught my eye so I decided to book an appointment with Andra. First of all, the service here was outstanding. We were offered different beverages, got nice clean robes, and had our bags and coats brought downstairs for safe keeping. I am so happy to have booked my appointment with Andra because I cannot begin to explain how happy I am with the outcome. Andra took really good care of me and my hair. I wanted to go lighter but wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted so Andra suggested to do a balayage look and it turned out so good. My friend got highlights and they came out just lovely and exactly how she envisioned it. Andra is an incredible colorist and is a very pleasant person to chat with through out the process.
Anthony kept my hair long because I've had such an issue with hairstylists always cutting my hair off so short. But I love how light and free my hair is now without being super short. And for the longest time I was playing around with the idea of getting my hair highlighted or colored. Ruxandra did the most beautiful balayage job; my hair looks so warm and has so much more dimension now! Seriously, I have not stopped getting compliments on my hair. Shout out to Natalie's team for being so talented and exceptional!!
