March into Spring & Get a Little Lucky!

by on March 4th, 2014

March is a time for spring and all that the new season of change canblonde2red bring! We are super excited to move into spring and all of the fun colors it has to offer. Looking at the current styles trending right now, many of our guests seemed to be inspired by something a bit more dramatic than their “usual” haircut or hair color! Looking for ombre? Go with something more fun than simply blonde or caramel, why not throw in a little pink, blue, green, or lilac?! So many new fun pastel shades to play with and soon we will be embraced with blooming buds everywhere we turn! Fashion colors for spring and summer still have lots of black and gray, and what better way to brighten up than with your best accessory – your hair!

shaveThe trends for men are still going strong with facial hair – beards, mustaches, and goatees. Have fun with them, and don’t be afraid to let your personal shine through by tailoring your facial hair with a little style, gentlemen! Men’s hair fashions are supporting a very tapered hairline and faded up to a longer top that can be parted with a severe hard part for a more conservative look, or molded into perhaps a pompadour with pomade, or finger combed back with molding paste to enhance the hair’s natural curl and texture. Grey blending is going super strong to calm down the evidence getting older! Men feel great when they can look timeless and be taken seriously while having fun! Products we like to help you create your style: Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Pomade, Keune man Mineral Cream, Keune Jelly Wax, Woody’s Mega Firm Gel, Sebastian Microweb Fiber :)

Get Lucky and receive a FREE lip waxing, eyebrow tinting, steamed towel treatment, or neck shave during the entire the month March 2014!

Love the Hair YOU Wear!

by on February 4th, 2014

Hello Gorgeous! Here we are in February already and hopefully we are all still sticking to our New Year’s Resolutions of 2014 ;) Let’s take a minute to think about being good to ourselves, and what we can do to make life easier. Recently, I came across lots of articles regarding psoriasis and started thinking about how many of us it affects especially on our scalps. With the severe temperatures and dry heat, our scalp and bodies are severely deprived of moisture. So we need to be aware of the difference between dry scalp, and psoriasis to have the right tools to manage them. Psoriasis is a condition in which the immune system causes the skin cells to produce more quickly than normal, resulting in itchy red spots with thick white scaly patches. Stress is a big component of exacerbating this condition. Dry scalp is simply just dry skin on your head. I was able to pick out a couple of things that will help to calm down these issues and give you some relief! We are big fans of Paul Mitchell’s Tea Tree Special Line. The tea tree oil is both stimulating and soothing to dry, itchy skin. This line is helpful for both dry scalp and psoriasis. Another beneficial shampoo is Neurogena T/Gel. This shampoo contains coal tar, which is extremely helpful with psoriasis – we suggest using it once or twice a week and when you do shampoo twice and follow with a creamy, thick, moisturizing conditioner such as Sebastian Penetraitt or Drench. Lastly, we also love Keune 2-Phase Spray as a great leave-in conditioner in conjunction with any other product you choose.

Your New Hair Resolution for 2014!

by on January 7th, 2014

Its the new year and time for great things to come! Feeling like a change? Almost everyone loves a fresh start to a new year, hoping for better luck, good health, prosperity, and countless other things we hope fulfill our voids. This time of year in the beautiful North East brings lots of picturesque scenes, and along with those and our completely crazy weather patterns, we mustn’t forget to tend to our hair and skin. Dry, freezing conditions lead to super dry, cracked skin and flyaway hair. Give your hair the moisture it needs with a deep moisturizing masque at least once a week to replenish moisture and shine, also pick up some shampoo and conditioner like Sebastian‘s Penetraitt to help to repair and strengthen hair. For your hands and feet make sure to lather on hand cream after every time you wash them – we know its tedious but its benefits totally out weigh the inconvenience!


A New Year with New Savings!

During the Month of January any new client that books with Nicole will receive 20% off their primary service and we will even give you 10% off if you prebook your next appointment!! Remember this only lasts until 1/31/2014 with Nicole!!

Make Your Hairstyle Statement during the Holidays…

by on November 19th, 2013

With the holidays now enveloping us, let us take a moment to stop, think, and plan! There are so many parties, happy hours, open-houses, gatherings, and formal engagements to attend and or host that we must make have a stategy in place to look our best minus the fuss! Looking flawless without going crazy behind the scenes can be managed – we promise ;)



First course of action:

Make a list of all of the events you will be attending or hosting, or print out your calendar so you won’t forget what, where, and when you will want & need to be!

Second:

Make your hair appointment if you haven’t already, stylists get booked quickly leading up to the holidays since everyone wants to look and feel good! Unfortunately this leads to little or no room for last minute appointments – unless there is a last minute cancellation. Men this goes for you too!

Third:

Plan your wardrobe! Now I know this sounds silly doing it so early, but if you know the events you will be attending then it will leave you more time for other last minute things you may need. When you can plan clearly and accordingly to handle the liveliness of the holidays, it takes the pressure off of you!

Trying to pull off and juggle so many things can make us feel & look overloaded, so give yourself some love! When you look good you, FEEL empowered!! MAKE YOUR STATEMENT :)


Head Turning Hairstyles!

by on October 2nd, 2013



Hey!! Let’s make some dramatic changes, starting with your hair! We have just recently attended some classes for new inspiration, including new color techniques, haircuts, and hairstyles! The looks from the red carpet always get our attention, so why not treat yourself to a fabulous style before you spend your night “out on the town”! Look glamorous with a pin-up inspired style, or maybe you want to look fierce with a sleek textured style… Intensify your haircolor, by doing something you have always dreamed of but never had the courage to try. There is no time like the present, so live it up to the fullest. Vidal Sassoon has been such a huge inspiration to us with his cutting edge vision and manageability. The details of your hairstyle, cut, and color all equally play important roles in the complete look.

Get Your Hair Looking its BEST EVER!

by on September 3rd, 2013

Ever wonder how celebrities get their hair to always look amazing?! Well there are a couple of things that they have easily at their disposal, that most of us do not ;) Not to be discouraged though, we have some great ideas to get the look and style you are looking for :) Check out what’s in your cabinet, we all impulsively buy products to help us get the style we want but its not always need for our hair. Feel free to bring in what you have in your product arsenal and let us help you figure out what works for and what doesn’t… The most important to getting your desired style is having the proper tools including shampoo, conditioner, and styling products that are right for your hair. Also, included in your tools check out your brushes, curling irons, hot rollers, blow dryer, and flat iron. We all tend to fall into what we know, but its not always what we need. We can help you figure that out, especially knowing “how” to use your tools so you can create the same style at home as you get when you leave the salon! Make sure to consult with your stylist and let them educate you on the BEST options for your style, color, and home maintenance. Knowledge is EVERYTHING so why not let us give it to you?! When your hair is right, everything else seems to fall into place so stop fighting it and let’s make it right together!

Father’s Day, Graduation Parties, & “The Great Gatsby”!

by on June 5th, 2013

The end of the traditional school year is now here and many wonderful things are happening all around us. In June there are so many parties to attend, that it gets a little crazy! Whether your attending a graduation party or a wedding (June is a super popular wedding month!), we have plenty of options for gifts or hair services to make your life easier! Indulge that graduate with a gift certificate for a hair service, manicure & pedicure, or haircare products – its always a bonus to get the products you love and not having to pay for them!!! We also have body butter, sprays, and soaps in wonderful summertime scents – Rose, Lavender, or Cherry Blossom by the San Francisco Soap Company .

Let us not forget Father’s Day, please make sure to remember your father and celebrate him with a little something special! Perhaps he likes a special shampoo or body wash and never gets it for himself, we carry an array of Men’s grooming lines including Keune for Men, Woody’s Men’s Grooming, as well as John Allan’s. We have soap, shampoo, body wash, travel kits, pomade, gel, mineral cream, shave cream, and aftershave balm. Indulge the dad in your life with a Gift Certificate for a Hot Lather Shave, or a Haircut with a Steamed Towel Treatment, and leave the rest up to us to make him look and feel his best!

Gatsby has taken the nation by storm, from men’s and women’s fashion to finger waves, pin curls, pompadours, beards & mustaches, and more… We are loving the style, glamour, and tailored look of the prohibition era… If your hosting a Great Gatsby party, or attending one we have the perfect hairstyles for both men and women. Both the men’s and women’s hairstyles as well as the beards and mustaches of that era had definite style and were worn as accessories with detail, which is what made the fashion of that time so attractive. Again, whether its an evening out or a special event, make sure your hair accentuates your outfit to complete your style! Make your appointment with Michael, Christina, or Erin today!!!
