isn’t it a wonderful time of the year? we look forward to the new season, but let’s face it, we are still enjoying our favorite warm weather pleasures … lingering outside with our family dogs, dexter and monty on a sunny afternoon checks a lot of boxes for me … but i am really thinking forward to the upbeat and optimistic energy that fall always brings to salon and spa.
end of summer thoughts in the spa, and salon, are often about omg, my skin is really showing all the fun in the sun … and do your highlights need some attention after so much swimming this summer? perhaps you’re thinking you don’t want a new look but you do want to look fresh and ready for anything.
it’s a busy season for hair color as many clients face fall with damage control … ‘repair’ options for hair … keratin smoothing can enhance texture and porosity immediately following a color service.
everyone is talking new … or what they aspire to with fashion and hair color. texture is a new friend to your hair, which can be created with professional products or personalization to your hair cut that can give more options to you as you style at home.
we see a trend as client’s want to evolve their hair color vs. revolutionize it … big make overs may be less in demand, but the subtle modern nuances of good hair color, just like that, take you forward.
the sweet spot between ashy and golden is a go to for many clients who are looking for an update to their color. we love cool, icy platinum tones with natural roots for easier maintenance. bringing bright, happy color into the new season also feels right.
for the adventurous, bringing strong, or faint, pink pops of color is not just for barbiecore … for those of us that crave color along these lines, but are not sure of exactly what, amethyst with olive skin tones is a classic combo ... select an accent color that looks good with your skin tone and let the colorist do the rest. brunettes can opt for the spicier side of their hue with dark chocolate, a spike of cinnamon or golden auburn face frame, or a noticeable color nuance on the ends of the hair looks fresh and new.
and of course freshly cut or trimmed hair not only helps strengthen your hair by stopping breakage in its tracks … it’s healthier feeling hair that looks better and is more manageable. for those adjusting to less remote and more office time, a fresh hair cut speaks volumes without words.
sure spa reservations are about unwinding … melting tensions with a massage or pampering yourself and a friend with a pedicure experience, but when it comes to skin we want noticeable results. it’s amazing how much better your skin looks and feels after exfoliation and treatment.
my personal recommendation for right now … kick off a new home skin care routine with a 30 minute express facial and a haircut and you’ll be ready to face fall.
