Back to school is approaching,bring your kids in!

Back to school is approaching fast and our stylist’s are ready to make sure your kid looks his best when he goes back to school. We keep up with the latest styles to make sure your kid is in style!

I know many parents will be happy that the long swooping bangs on the boys is on the way out, clean looking cuts with clean lines on the perimeter is always a good look.

For the girls there are so many options depending on the hair texture, facial structure as we will go over what are best options for your girl. Always remember to focus on your best features and how to accentuate them and we are there to assist you in that process.

I always suggest making a change with your look even if is subtle as the kids are starting a new year with new teachers and some new students that will become friends, it’s an exciting time with some anxiety so you want your kid to feel and look their best.

As I look back on my high school annuals and the elementary pictures I am always amazed that some of these kids could have had a better haircut. I fell into that category a few times as my Mom cut mine a few times and she was not a stylist’s as the pictures prove.

I hope you bring in your kids as we will do our best to make them look great!

How to keep your hair looking it’s best in the summer heat

Now that the temps are nearing the 90’s or higher with high humidity it can get very frustrating to keep your hair looking good.

Stay away from products that contain alcohol as they will cause your hair to be even more dry and frizzy, we recommend using moisturizing products and gentle shampoo formulas with a ph level between 5 and 6.

I commonly here clients state that they switch shampoos as they don’t work on their hair the same way unless they switch it up from time to time, I feel it could be tied to the climate. In the summer we are in the sun more and many are in the pool which of course chlorine will damage your hair.

If you are in the sun and spend time in the chlorine pools you must use products that protect your hair as we carry many great products that are stylist’s will assist you in choosing the right products for you.

Keep this in mind also that if you have chemically treated hair you will need much more protection and the texture of your hair plays a big part in what products you need.

Hair can be burned just like the skin and your see this directly from the sun and also with curling and flat irons. If you use a flat iron which is very popular right now make sure you use a product before you use your iron to protect your hair.

Most everyone knows that keeping hydrated with water is important and it will keep your skin and hair looking it’s best.

Make sure to keep those ends trimmed every 4-6 weeks to get rid of split ends as that will prevent the hair from tearing up the shaft of the hair.



In the past year when I page through all the popular magazines like People, US and hairstyle magazines and I see all the movie and music stars with short styles. There are so many woman that are reluctant to go with a short style as they have had long hair for so long, I totally understand that as we all tend to get comfortable with a certain look and are reluctant to make the change, reasons can be many as I hear all the time my husband or boyfriend won’t like it. My question to that, how would he know if he has never seen you with a shorter style?
With so many of these short styles bangs have really come back strong as there are so many different ways to wear your bangs as this can really emphasize your beautiful eyes. It is the job of the stylist to give you a style that accentuates your best features as I encourage that the customer ask the stylist what are my best features and how can we achieve a look that will feature them.
I have seen over my many years in the business how people get in a rut and how a new style can uplift them, having said that, I see so many women that have this long damaged hair that is stringy and looks ,bluntly said, worn out bad looking hair! If that is you, do something about and make that change and you will not only have better looking healthy hair and our stylist’s will show you how to style your hair and how to maintain your style with the many wonderful products we have to offer, the key to keeping your style looking it’s best is to use the proper products for your hair and our stylist’s are there to assist you.
I know how I have focused on women in this article but I want to state that there men out there that need to make a change with your hairstyle, I’m in my 50’s now and I had long hair until about 28 and I know that I can’t go back to it as it would be a bad look. When you start getting thinner on top of your head it’s not a good look to have the long mane, time for an update boys.
I want everyone to know that long hair is the way to go for many women and that is there best look and I just want everyone to wear what looks best for them.Even if you have a long style it can be modified a bit to improve your look.
I can tell you that are professional stylist’s will take the extra time and go over the facial features that you have and how you can make those strong facial features really stand out with right style for you.
