Unmasked Beauty & Hairstyles for the Holidays

by on November 4th, 2014

What a great time we had during October at Cappella’s Studio! We would like to take the time to say that we had an absolutely wonderful makeup tutorial presented by our very own, Nicole, featuring the ever so trendy “smokey eye”. Our guests raved over how much they learned during the class, and simply loved the goodie bags, full of great little suprises, we sent them home with for attending! One of our guests also won the door prize, a personalized makeup session with Nicole, to make the evening even more sweet! The ladies enjoyed savory hors d’voeurs provided by Gatto’s Gourmet, featuring Chef Megan Gatto. We are so thankful to Chef Megan, she  did such an amazing job and the food was unbelievable! We can’t wait for you to join us at our next tutorial, coming in January, check back for more information as it unfolds!

In keeping current with  new technology and services constantly being introduced, the stylists of Cappella’s Studio also attended classes to further our education as to what’s trending in the beauty undustry. Our first class presented by Abbey Rogers of Keratin Complex, was on the newest innovation in hair smoothing technology. We learned about and performed the Advanced Glycolic Smoothing Service by Keratin Complex. Abbey was expertly informed in all aspects of differences in Keratin services and gave us a ton of knowledge. Our model, Gina, loved the service and couldn’t believe the results even after she washed it herself and styled it at home. Thanks so much Abbey!

Our second class was conducted by Leah Scherer of Keune. Leah conducted our class on the So Pure Color Line by Keune, which is an ammonia and paraben free deposit only color.  The results were amazing, the hair had incredible shine and 100% grey coverage. Our model, Virginia, was completely impressed with her color when we were finished, and she is still very pleased after washing and styling herself at home.  Leah is a wealth of knowledge with Keune and all of their different color lines, we are so grateful for having her share it with us! Thanks Leah!

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is indeed upon us, and now more than ever before you are pulled into a million different directions… To keep yourself from looking and feeling frazzled admist the chaos, set your appointments for hair and beauty earlier than later to keep ontop of your game!  From holiday fundraising galas, to gorgeous fall weddings, to public speaking engagements, to hosting Thanksgiving at your house, we have  you covered for all of your grooming and beauty services! Give yourself a break, and have a blowout done so you can have that fabulous style all evening without the worry! Holiday family photos are so popular now, and getting your makeup done sets you free of  any anxiety of feeling like you look out of control! lol

Starting School with a Great Haircut!

by on August 23rd, 2014

It is about that time that we are getting ready to go back to school, and the summer is coming to an end all too quickly… We recently just got in a shipment of all different kinds of gels, waxes, pomades, and shaping creams from Keune and have had a blast playing as well as creating! Super hot haircuts right now for boys are faded pompadors, undercuts, and hard parts/definition lines, these looks are super clean and tightly styled. We like using the Power Paste by Keune for ultimate hold with a matte finish, or the Brilliantine Gel for a softer hold with shine just to give you a little peak at what we are talking about, check out these cuts and styles…

We are a creatively driven bunch, which may explain our eccentricities ;) We take your hair very seriously, trying to gather as much information about how your style would best suit you and your life style as well as how you like to project yourself. Right now men’s hair has so many amazing things trending with so many talented stylists and barbers digging deep into their creative brain to design hairstyles again not just manufacture them… Women’s hair is so fun and creative too with so many new vibrant colors although not traditional give pop to one’s style especially when strategically placed to get your attention!

Tip of the Month!

If your out in the sun for extended periods of time remember to use a product like Potion 9 lite Spray by Sebastian that is a leave-in conditioner as well as has UV protection to help protect your color… Follow up with a Deep Moisture masque at your next appointment to help replenish the moisture that the sun and pool are stripping out of your hair.

Let’s celebrate with all of the fathers out there this month!!! Recently we came across an article regarding men’s grooming and the barber shop experience and since Father’s Day is this month we felt it was important to highlight men’s fashion, grooming, and style. According the founder of V76 by Vaughn, Vaughn Acord pointed out that, “A guys visit to the salon should be an experience – not just a 30-minute cut appointment” and he also went on to say, “before they leave the chair, all aspects should be addressed-everything from how to recreate the look at home to how long they should wear their sideburns to the importance of trimming their facial hair.” (Quick, Lauren. “Building a Better Groomer”. Modern Salon June 2014: 86-88)

Dress Up your Hair for Your Fabulous Night Out!

by on May 2nd, 2014

rusprom2004mu6rusprom2014mu9rusprom20144

Prom time, wedding season, and Mother’s Day are ALL happening in the beautiful month of May! We are simply loving the current trends of long beachy waves with more subtle face framing highlights, even consider deepening your base color for an even more dramatic effect. Haircolor looks most beautiful and sophisticated when it enhances YOUR naural beauty even if you haven’t spent much time into finishing your style it will appear effortlessly elegant… If your in the market for a prom, wedding style, or just want an up-do for a night on the town, less is more and choosing the best hairstyle to accomodate your completed look is so important!! We are big fans of research in that department, we strongly encourage our loyal guests to have fun and create a board on Pinterest or even print out, cut out, or sketch up ideas that you may have in mind so we can consult honestly with you and bring your vision to life! We want you to look back at all of those gorgeous photos with a smile that makes yoyr cheeks hurt! So lets get down and dirty with makeup – hot out on the makeup scene is a definitely glossy ORANGE lip color for 2014 – yes you read correctly its orange this year!! There is a plethora of orange lip shades to accomodate every skin tone, and yes you too can rock it beautifully with the proper shade ;) If you just can’t get into orange, try a velvet red only for a classic smooth finish for another option – no gloss! Eye shadows are more of a gilded or golden metallic vibe paired with navy, cobalt, or blackest black liner, and lashes are worn with black/noir mascara. Cheek color packs a little more punch with a deeper berry tone subtly applied with just a few dots fanned out to enhance the apples of your cheeks for a fresh and healthy look. Lastly, don’t forget about your brows they need love too! Be sure that your eyebrows are waxed to a shape that enhances your eye and that they are the correct shade. Hair color and eyebrow color usually aren’t the same naturally – eyebrows are always tend to be a bit darker than your haircolor. We always like to consult with our guests about this because just enhancing your brow color can add so much youth to your face, and lets be honest – who doesn’t want that?! We can’t wait to see this month!

Service of the Month:

Get your makeup done with Nicole for only $25!!! Normally a $50 service, you will love the way you look when Nicole is finished with you! Purchase it for a Mother’s Day gift, prom night, or wedding day!! Exclusions apply, not to be combined with other offers, service must be performed by 5/31/2014, offer expires 5/31/2014.

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!
mensfade

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 :)

Service of the Month:

Get Lucky and receive a FREE lip waxing, eyebrow tinting, steamed towel treatment, or neck shave during the entire the month March 2014! Here’s how you can get this fantastic offer – when you bundle 2 or more services during 1 appointment, we can offer you one of these fabulous services while your here! Only 1 redemption per customer, not to be combined with other offers, offer expires 3/31/2014.

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.
