Find Clarity

Clean up your act!

Sticky silicones, thick waxes, conditioner buildup, hard water mineral deposits and damaging chlorine- the list of elements sticking to your hair is endless. And without properly removing these coatings, the results of hours in the hair salon can be negatively affected. Here’s some tips to keep in clean!

a. When using a clarifying shampoo, apply it from the scalp to mid shaft, avoiding the ends. This allows the shampoo to focus where the buildup lives.

b. In the summer when you are swimming and perspiring more, your hair  color and texture can shift. A clarifying shampoo can restore the hair’s balance, and save it from discoloration.

c. Clarifying shampoos are especially important for curly haired clients who use a lot of products to keep their curls under control.

Spring and Summer 2017 Makeup Trends

From glossed over lids to color swept cheeks and eyes, this season is all about color, both soft and vibrant. Soft pastel shades to bright colored blocked 80’s inspired eyes and lips were seen on runways from NY to Milan. Just when we thought that glitter was so last holiday, it has reinstated itself in the form of the dramatic glitter pout. The classic French manicure reinvented itself with a creative glitter flair of lining the cuticles. The dark, vampy, red lip of last season has updated itself in bright shades of raspberry, orange and cherry red. Dreamy watercolor eyes sparkled with pastel shades brushed artfully across the lid present a fresh, fun approach to the season.
