âThese rooms are designed to serve our clients who have full-privacy needs. This is one of the features of the salon design we are most proud of. We have created a space that can accommodate any client, those who prefer exclusive privacy and those who do not.â
âOur chic product shelving that displays our retail offerings is located right by the entrance of the salon. It commands attention, whether the client is on her way in or on her way out. The retail shelves, stocked with Kerastase and Davines products, are strategically viewable from the waiting area.â
âHere, in the shampoo area, we practice a Japanese shampooing technique that includes a complimentary relaxing head massage. The massage helps clients fully relax and drift away to a Zen-like world, surrounded by our soothing, calm colors and lighting design.â
âHere, at our Takara Belmont styling stations, our staff serves complimentary beverages including Starbucks coffee, hot chocolate, cappuccinos and tea. We offer a professional environment which is inviting, elegant and pleasant.â
âThis is our color lounge, where we use Goldwell, Redken and LâOrÃ©al. Here, we have color corrective lighting that allows hair color to be read as it would be in daylight. This room is comfortable and open, while being out of the public social space. Featuring a top of the line rollerball hair processor, this helps speed up the processing time. We also have a self-service blow out area.â
Ok, it’s official. Tiger eye hair color is now thing. Yes, sure, maybe it was always a thing. But thanks to social media, it now has a name and is the newest buzzword in the sombre, ombre, ecaille, babylight, ombre, bronde, balayombre vocab list. So what is Tiger Eye hair, what makes it different from the other color services out there?
Lots of clients come in wanting to cover their gray hair or do a little gray blending here and there. But, have you ever had a client coem in wanting...MORE gray hair?
Edith Mesa of Rizos Spa, Queens, NY, says her client went to another salon when she wasn't available. The client was looking for something different, was unhappy with the "other results" and came running back to Mesa. This post shares the details for the makeover.
Our summer blonde made the perfect model to demonstrate the beauty of Redken’s new pH Bonder because although she isn’t frequently coloring her hair, living in New York City means she’s walking outside a lot with exposure to the sun and city elements—plus thermal damage from regular use of a curling wand or flatiron. So with protection and hair health being the two key benefits of the additive, she was all in.
Ludovic Geheniaux (@hairbyluu) says client Leana is a professional model. “She wanted a big color change and told me that she wanted to go lighter. I proposed she had to just trust me.” See the steps and the after. Amazing.
Stylist Jeff Stump of Artkiteks gives winter hair tips for the perfect cut and color, and how to achieve cool-girl texture.
Christine Gordon, former president of the American Association of Cosmetology Schools (AACS) and a staunch advocate for the needs of cosmetology and aesthetics students, passed away on Dec. 1, 2016.
This client was tired of her blonde going brassy as she attempted to hide her grays. Her colorist transformed her by incorporating both blonde and gray to ease the hair color stress. The result? Sophistication!
Those sunkissed, balayaged locks that were on point a couple months ago are not cutting it now that winter is here. This time of year, ashy, muted blondes are the name of the game.
Frances Canola (@frances_hairartist) is in the process of opening Bauhaus Salon in Orange, CA (opening Jan 2, 2017). MODERN found this lovely makeover and asked Canola for the details for this brassy blonde to ashy melt perfection. Here she shares.
This client waited 5 years to have a new shade. The results from natural brown to icy blonde, via microlights and toning, are amazing!!! Check it out.
