Ready to change your haircolor?



When it comes to hair color, nothing's as simple as black and white. Lucky for you, we know a thing or two about getting the perfect color for you! A great haircut and haircolor can make you feel great.

Need inspiration? Watch the stars – If you are struggling to find a color that fills you with excitement, buy yourself a celebrity magazine and see what the stars are doing. Celebrities spend thousands of dollars every month on Stylists just so they can stay on the edge of the latest hair trends. Color for the season - One way of guaranteeing you are always in style is matching your hair color to the season. If it’s summer, go as light as you dare and don’t be afraid to try big bold colors. In fall and spring, it’s all about warm natural looking colors, and in the winter the darker you are prepared to go the better. Radical change - Ready to step out of your comfort zone? One of the boldest and most daring moves you can do is a complete color transformation. Are you a blonde? Why not trying a sleek black look, or for you sultry brunettes, why not try a bright red look? A radical change might be enough to leave you shaking in your shoes, but it’s often these big hair color changes that can leave us feeling our best.

Electrolysis Hair Removal

Electrolysis hair removal is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent hair removal. It does require multiple sessions to achieve best possible results, but permanent hair removal isn't 100% guaranteed for everyone. How Does it Work? An electric current is applied with a very fine needle-shaped electrode, or metal probe into each hair follicle to destroy the root. Hair grows in different stages: growing, resting and shedding. Because all of the hair isn't on the same stage at any given time, multiple sessions are needed to get the hair in the growth phase for electrolysis hair removal to be most effective- just like laser hair removal. The Pros It has the best track record. Electrolysis has the best overall results, versus any other method, in ridding hair for long periods of time- or even permanently. Many different hair and skin types can benefit. Because it doesn't target hair pigment (color) like laser, but attacks the follicle itself. People that aren't good candidates for laser can still get electrolysis. The Cons Bent follicles can make electrolysis hair removal harder. Previous waxing or tweezing can make hair follicles bent or misshapen, and getting the needle to the root more difficult to destroy the follicle. Multiple treatments are needed. You have to truly be committed to electrolysis because you will need anywhere from 15 - 30 sessions, which will take up a considerable amount of your time.

It's time for beautiful nails!

There are plenty of reasons to get artificial fingernails. Maybe you're going to a wedding or reunion and you want to look sharp. Or perhaps you've had trouble growing your nails long and need assistance. Which is right for you: Acrylic or Gel? Acrylic Nails Your nail technician will mix a liquid with a powder and brush the mixture onto your nails. They'll usually cover your entire nail, though sometimes they'll just add tips or a flexible form that they can sculpt to extend your nails. The product hardens as it is exposed to the air. You may notice a strong odor during the application process, but it isn't harmful, provided the room has good ventilation. Maintenance: Over time, acrylics grow out with your nails. Every two to three weeks, you should return to the salon to have your nails filled in. Your technician will gently file down the acrylic edge closest to your nail bed, then fill in the empty area between your nail bed and the existing acrylic nail. Removal: When you decide to have your acrylics removed, your nail technician will remove them quite easily, with no forcing or prying, after soaking your hands in remover for 15 minutes.
Gel Nails Today's gels have a similar consistency to nail polish. They are brushed onto your nails, nail tips, to extend length. After your nail technician applies each coat, you must put your nails under ultraviolet (UV) light for up to two minutes to "cure" or harden the product. There is no odor during the application process, but some gel products create a burning sensation as the product cures. Maintenance: Like acrylics, gels grow out with your nails and need to be filled in every two to three weeks. Your technician will gently file down the gel edge closest to your nail bed, and then fill in the empty area between your nail bed and the existing gel nail. Removal: When you decide to have your gels removed, your nail technician will remove them quite easily, by gently clipping and filing to the natural nail
