Timing is Everything

Posted:


So you made the call and finally got your appointment to have your color touched-up...YES!  You've set aside a precious and valuable hour and a half to two hours between dropping the kids off, going to the doctor, going to the post office, picking up groceries, and picking the kids back up.  Some ME time.  How can you squeeze in a little something extra?  We'll tell you how.

It will take your hairstylist about 30-45 minutes to mix and apply your color.  Then you will sit with that color on, while it processes, for about 40 minutes.  Yes, you could use that time to just zone out or read up on celebrity gossip.  Know what else you could do?  Why not schedule a much needed manicure, at the same time as you are sitting there getting your color applied?  Why not schedule a glorious, decadent pedicure (when's the last time you had time for that luxury?) while you are sitting there with your color on and it is processing?  While we're at it, why not go ahead and get your brows cleaned up, after you get your color shampooed out and you are waiting for your blow-out or cut?  Turn your quick salon get-away into a true multi-tasking art form!  Head to toes!  

Let yourself feel a sense of accomplishment when you walk out that door, swinging that fabulous blow-out, knowing that you just multi-tasked like a pro.

Balayage

Posted:
There is a beautiful trend in hair color of natural-looking, sun-kissed, light streaks through the hair.  It's reminiscent of childhood, spending summers outside with friends, a very youthful, natural look.  

Many clients call our salon to inquire about balayage.  Here's what you need to know:

Balayage is a Technique.  It is NOT a style or a "look".  It is a method of highlighting using free-form wisping, or painting, of the hair strands.  Traditional highlighting using foils produces a very precision look of lightened/darkened streaks, or pieces.  Balayage produces a more natural lightened look, and will not give you a "bright", or dramatic blonde all over look.  The Balayage technique can also be used to paint darker pieces through the hair shaft, if you feel your color has become too solid/non-dimensional toward the ends.

There is also a big difference between ombre hair and balayage hair.  Ombre is a dramatic transition from light to dark, and should ONLY be done by a professional!  Ombre is definitely for the bolder, braver client!  Balyage technique is for the client looking for something subtle, NOT dramatic dark to light transition.
