Barbering 101

We recently held a barbering class where we had a profession barber/educator come in and give us all knowledge and ideas regarding fades, beard trimmings/shapings, and designs. We were so thankful and can’t wait to take this further in our salon. Here are some pictures from this weekend’s class.

Why You May Need To Change Up Your Skin Care Routine

Most people have a really hard time finding a skin care line that suits their needs or maybe the product was good at first but now seems to have stopped giving you results. In my experience it has come down to two reasons.
One, your skin goes through cycles. These cycle changes can be brought on by stress, hormone levels, diet, and our environment. Understanding how your skin reacts to these reacts to these cycles is key. Keep a journal, pay attention to what  factors are effecting your skin.
Two, never having a proper skin analysis or not being up to date on one. When having a skin analysis done by an esthetician they’ll use certain lights and tools to understand what is going on under the surface of your skin and help you get to the root of the issue. Your esthetician then can set you up with a game plan to properly treat your skin at home and in the salon.
Here at Flying Scissors Salon we use Naturopathica who has made finding the right products simple for you by breaking down their line into 4 categories:
                                                        1) Hydrate and Protect
                                                        2) Brightening
                                                        3) Smooth and Firm
                                                        4) Clarifying
Each category features unique products to target certain conditions and areas. Since Naturopathica uses plant based ingredients you never have to worry about any harsh interractions from mixing and matching categories to tailor to your specific skin needs. Scedule today for a free consultation and our esthetician Kat can set you up with a skin care routine designed for you.

The Truth Behind Unicorn Hair

Fashion colors have become INSANELY popular over the last year. I’m sure you’ve seen “unicorn” hair posts all over pinterest and instagram. So what exactly ¬†goes into achieving a look like that. Here are a few¬†IMPORTANT things to remember when you ask your stylists for those crazy, cool colors.

      

  1. It takes time & LOTS of it.

    So what does that mean? Expect to be in salon for multiple appointments because it’s going to take time to get you light enough. Not only multiple appointments, but for each appointment being at least 4 hours long, sometimes even longer. Lightening hair is a time consuming process as it is, then add deep conditioning treatments to keep your hair happy, and blow dries after most steps, and cutting and blow drying again. (be sure to bring a snack)

  2. It’s not cheap.

    Keep in mind, multiple appointments can add up and be costly. Always be open with your stylists about what you’re willing to pay to make sure you both are on the same page when it comes to $$$.

  3. You have to be BLONDE first to have unicorn hair in the end.

    Your hair has to look like this     if you want to look like this .
    At the very least you need to be a darker blonde for your hair to even take to darker fashion colors. Looking for a pastel lilac, let’s start with violet first and safely get you to that lilac color you’re wanting.

  4. REMEMBER fashion colors are NOT permanent.

    Fashion colors are direct dyes offering TEMPORARY color. They fade faster, which is why using the products your stylists recommends is crucial. Although the products won’t completely stop fading, it’ll slow down the process a little but expect to be back in salon for a touch up between 4-6 weeks.

Still think fashion colors are for you? Talk with your stylist today about the HEALTHY way to get there to maintain the integrity of your hair because as always that is our main goal.

Lighting Makes a BIG Difference

Ever come into the salon to have your hair colored and love it, only to go home and notice it may look a little warmer or different in the light in your own bathroom? Lighting makes a big difference when it comes to hair color. That’s why it’s so important to see your hair in natural light because chances are if your like there, you’ll like it anywhere.

Different lighting can give off difference affects to your hair like looking too warm or brassy, to too blue, to too dull. Here are some side by side pictures of the SAME hair, done on the SAME day, but how lighting completely changes the color.

 

See how vibrant both colors look in the sunlight? Who knew lighting would make such a difference.
