Begins with a thorough consultation at each visit. Includes a shampoo, conditioning and blow dry.
A revolutionary breakthrough in hair technology that will change your life if you have kinky or frizzy hair. This service will last up to 3 months. It is done in a similar way to hair straightening, but doesn't permanently remove your curl like straighteners do. A smoothing service leaves your hair shiny and manageable, and your hair will blow dry in almost half the usual required time, with no need to use a flat iron. There are several systems I can offer; from the original Brazilian Blowout to an amino acid based smoothing treatment containing none of the controversial chemicals that have been in the news lately. Ask me which one is best for your hair.
These treatments have several functions: Protection, repair, moisture, smoothing and color retention. In addition to regular home care conditioning, you will find there are times that your hair needs more intense conditioning and/or reconstruction treatment. Maybe you spent too much time in the sun or in chlorinated or salt water. Perhaps you had an intensive color service or an "oops!" at home. These are all times when your hair needs special attention. I will prepare your hair for the appropriate treatment with a deep cleansing shampoo. Then I will apply the correct treatment for your hair. A deep conditioning treatment usually lasts about 15 minutes, and then your hair will be ready to be styled. Often times I will send you home with products for subsequent treatments at home.
Shampoo & Style:
One of the most enjoyable services in the salon is to have your hair shampooed. While relaxing at the sink , you will receive an invigorating shampoo and conditioning treatment. This is where I can take a closer look at your specific hair care needs and make a proper recommendation for your home hair care maintenance. After your hair is washed and conditioned, I will apply the necessary styling products to achieve your desired style while your hair is being dried and I will give you tips on how to recreate your style at home.
The process of adding color to your hair. Whether to cover grey, or changing the color altogether to achieve a new look, looking younger will always be a desired result of hair coloring. I will consult with each client and make recommendations as to which shades and tones most flatter your skin coloring. I will take into consideration maintenance and budget when selecting the proper service to achieve the correct hair color service for you.
This gentle form of coloring has many uses. It is an excellent "starter color" as it eventually washes out of the hair, which is ideal for the timid or first time color user. I will apply an all over solution that is ammonia free and very low in peroxide (usually less than 7%). Glossing can be applied in clear shade to add dazzling shine, or a myriad of color choicesare available to help blend grey or eliminate unwanted brassy tones. This service usually lasts about 8-12 weeks and cannot be used to achieve a lighter hair color.
Highlights & Low lights:
This is one of the most effective ways to create dimension to your hair style, blend grey, and safely go lighter and/or darker without being committed to all over hair color. You can achieve that sun kissed look by adding blonde highlights. Often times, clients come to me and want to reverse the greying process without the use of an all over color. Reverse highlights can do just that, by strategically placing the natural color back into the hair, thus reversing the aging process. Highlighting can be bold and chunky, or fine and natural, and anywhere in between. You can choose to use just one color, or up to three different shades. The sky is the limit! You can choose to highlight your entire head which is a full head. You can do just the crown of your head from ear to ear and from your brow to the occipital bone, which is a half head, or you can place highlights individually on your head for a dramatic effect.
Ombre hair refers to hair color fading from dark to light, or vice versa. Instead of the color starting from the roots, it gradually becomes lighter, or darker, towards the ends. The word "ombre" in French means shadow or shade.
Back to Back Highlights:
This service is ideal for greying clients who want to have highlighted hair. Traditionally it is achieved by tinting the hair, washing and then apply highlights over the freshly tinted hair, which is time consuming, hard on the hair and more expensive. With back to back highlights, I can place foils on the entire head of hair, thus both covering the grey and creating lovely highlights and low lights.
