    New Color


    2013 - 02.20

    Have you tried our new color yet?  If not then make sure to ask us how we can improve your color.

    We introduced all Redken color in January, and are loving the new system.  Although we certainly miss our Logics, we are seeing fantastic results with Redken.  Our Redken color system includes two types of permanent color, a semi-permanent color and a demi-permanent color.

    Here are the improvements that we are seeing so far:  The colors are multidimensional, the technology of Rekden has naturally reflective coverage.  The hair is conditioned and feels wonderful, the color includes argan oil, cationic conditioning polymers and rice proteins to revitalize the hair and neutralize free radicals.

    We are just starting to see return clients and are loving the results so far.  The colors are not fading as quickly as they had been, and we are so excited to see how the reds are doing.

    Come in and schedule an appointment and try out Redken!

    Redken 5th Avenue – Afterthoughts


    2012 - 03.09

    The week in NYC was so overwhelming that my intentions of blogging every day were not able to be met.  All in all we did five different hair cuts, all demonstrating techniques that are very important to enuring the best possible service.  When I first came back from the city, I was so overwhelmed with information and made the mistake of trying to implement everything that I learned.  Mistakes happen, and I learned to take it a little bit at a time.  Each day I have tried to focus on one portion of the education I received in the city, and have slowly implemented the different techniques in everything that I do.

    One of the biggest challenges in hair is getting into ruts, we all do it.   We all get into periods where we do the same things over and over, and rarely change what we are doing.  That is until something like the Exchange comes along and whips me into shape.  There are so many opporutinites to change now, so many possibilities.

    If you feel like changing something up, let any one of us know.  We’re slowly learning some new things.

    Redken 5th Ave. Cut & Know Why, The One Length Bob


    2012 - 02.14

    We were all warned this morning about being overwhelmed with
    information, and that was no lie.  There
    was so much that was covered in such a short amount of time, and everything
    that was such a wonderful refresher of some of the basics of cosmetology.

    The basics covered today were the principles of design,
    ranging from shape to lines.  Although
    these are not new concepts, they are concepts that always need refreshing to
    ensure better services.

    The haircut that was covered today was a simple one length
    bob, but it was a totally different take on what I normally do for a one length
    bob.  There are so many nuances about the
    bob that we have to account for, and guest consultation is so important to
    figure out what works best for the guest.

    The hardest part of class today was being open to a new
    concept.  In my practice at the salon, I
    generally don’t section as much as we did in class.  However, I learned that proper sectioning
    (accounting for changes in the head shape and hair movement) is essential for
    completing the proper bob.  After doing
    the bob the same way for almost 5 years, it is interesting to be able to take
    the skills I have learned in today’s class back to the salon.

    I have already decided who I get to practice on, and I can’t
    wait!  I look forward to another day
    tomorrow.
