    Mistakes


    2011 - 10.19

    One of the most exciting things that was talked about in the Redken show that I went to this weekend was that we are allowed to make mistakes.  I had no idea that that ws even possible in the hair styling world, a mistake?  What in the world is that?  I had never heard of admitting mistakes, especially on a stage.

    Mistakes happen, sometimes they happen in a small way and sometimes they happen in a big way.  We always try to correct any mistakes here at the salon, so if you are seeing that a color is fading too quickly or the color is looking a bit brassy or ashy, let us know.  Those are simple problems that can be fixed quickly.

    One of the biggest comments that we are seeing today is that colors are looking washed out and drab, a simple toner can help refresh the ends and give the color a luxurious shine.  If your colors are fading too quickly then let us know, we can add a chemistry system to help seal the hair after it is processed.

    One of the guests yesterday asked if we take pictures of the hair once it is finished so we can remember what we did for the next time.  This is such a common place where we make mistakes, it can be challenging to repeat the same exact hair cut again from one apppointment to the next.  There is always a difference, and please tell us i fthere is a noticeable difference that needs to be fixed.

    Above all, let us know what is going on with your hair.  It’s important to know what is working and what is not.  We appreciate the criticism as well as the praise.

    Education


    2011 - 10.18

    In every industry, education is so important to improve your skills and enhance the knowledge base.  Brad had the priviledge of going to some Redken education this past Sunday from the “Inspiring world of Redken” collection.  There is so much to be said for a fresh perspective and some new ideas for the coming season that we are hoping to see in the salon.

    The runways are showing luxurious reds, brunettes and coppers blended with high fusion colors.  We’re also seeing a lot of texture, have you seen crimping irons used in recent months?  How about crimping irons and curing irons at the same time?  Well, we are seeing it.  Have you considered a change?  The melding of colors has become very hot and seems to be sticking around, creating a blended line that looks like someone is growing the color out.

    The pictures are from the haircut and color we did in class, ask us about it when you come in!
