+ WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SEMI-PERMANENT AND PERMANENT HAIR COLOR?
The major difference is how long you want the color to last and how much of a change you actually want. If you're looking for something subtle, such as adding a layer of color or deepening your own natural hair color, a semi-permanent color is the best option for you.
Semi-permanent colors are designed to wash out after about 6 to 12 shampoos. The real benefit to them is that the color is temporary, so there is not a big change "commitment” on your part. And, just think, you won’t have to deal with those pesky noticeable roots.
One thing to note is that semi-permanents actually darken the hair. They don’t contain any ammonia or peroxide, so they can’t ever lighten your hair. So keep in mind that if you're looking to go dramatically lighter, semi-permanents are not the best choice for you.
If you want a longer-lasting option, consider something called demi-permanent color. This lasts about twice as long as semi-permanent dye and has the same basic properties as semi-permanent color.
But, if you want that dramatic change, a permanent hair color is your best option. What do we mean by dramatic? Any time that you “lighten” your hair or make it more than a shade or two darker, that's dramatic. If you are looking to hide the grays, permanent color is the only way to go.
Permanent color does not wash out with shampooing. It is a blend of peroxide and ammonia that actually removes the color pigment from your hair and then deposits new color on top. When your hair grows in, the original color appears in the form of roots. And you will have to “re-touch” the roots every six weeks or so (depending on how fast your hair grows).
+ WHAT IS A SINGLE-PROCESS COLOR?
A single process is just the application of one color (or toner) to achieve an all-over color. You can still have some contrast depending on the color used or your existing hair color, but there is only one application - hence the term “single process.”
+ WHEN AND WHY ARE “FOILS” USED?
Foils are used to introduce multiple colors to a client’s hair. The foils allow the stylist to place color strategically in a hair design to achieve a certain look. Foils are also utilized when a stylist is trying to “highlight” the hair. Foils are not usually used on very short hair.
+ HOW DO YOU DEFINE A "GREAT" CUT VS. A "GOOD" CUT?
Most people don’t really know the difference between “just a good haircut” and a great haircut. And there’s little wonder why that's the case. The reason is because...
...nobody has ever explained it to them! So, here goes…
There are two reasons most experts would agree on.
The cut itself must compliment your personality and face shape. For example: Remember Jennifer Aniston's cut? That was a great haircut because it complimented her specific facial characteristics. The cut would not have looked as good on Angelina Jolie.
A great haircut looks good even as it grows out. In other words, it should look great between services. Hair grows at a rate of 1/8” per week. Cutting the hair every 4-6 weeks maintains its shape and placement.
+ HOW OFTEN SHOULD I GET MY HAIR CUT?
Typically, if hair is not at least “trimmed” every 8-10 weeks, it will begin to split at the ends and break. When this happens (and left unattended), these ends will continue to split up the hair shaft, causing damage - damage that you cannot repair!
Another thing (that might not make sense to the average person) is cutting the hair actually makes it grow faster and healthier. So, don’t make the mistake of letting your hair “grow out,” thinking that you’re making it healthier. Healthy hair is trimmed on a consistent basis.

+ WHAT IS CORRECTIVE COLOR?
So, you bought a box of hair dye down at your local supermarket or pharmacy. You thought the color was a bit of an outrageous change, but you wanted to try it anyway – so you did, and now you’ve got some serious brassiness going on, or worse yet, you’ve got neon yellow or fire-engine red hair!

Hey, sometimes we all take matters into our own hands, but with color...you really have to be careful. Why?

+ WHAT IS BIO-IONIC STRAIGHTENING?
The Definition of an Ion
Ions are atoms that have gained or lost an electron and bear change of energy. Positive ions have lost an electron and are considered unhealthy. They are found in dust, smoke and other toxic substances. Negative ions have gained an electron and greatly assist in a body's mood, energy level and overall health.
How does it work?
Bio Ionic haircare products contain NanoIonic Complex (a blend of 32 natural-occuring minerals) that emits Natural Negative Ions in to the hair. Natural Negative Ion energy is powerful enough to break down clusters of water molecules into fine particles that penetrate the hair shaft, to re-hydrate, re-condition and restore moisture balance. After using the Bio Ionic product system, hair feels smooth, super-soft and looks silky shiny.
Step 1: Natural negative ions break down water clusters into tiny water molecules.
Step 2: Micronized water molecules penetrate hair deeper and faster for extreme hydration. Far infrared energy smoothes hair from inside out.
Step 3: Hair is left hydrated, smooth, and shiny.
+ WHAT ARE THE MAJOR ADVANTAGES OF WAXING?
You get immediate results.
Hair can be removed from large areas very quickly.
The cost is relatively low and client satisfaction is high!
Discomfort resulting from the procedure is fairly minor.
You are free from unwanted hair for a long period of time - and regular visits actually can reduce re-growth!
Re-growth is fine and soft, unlike the pricklier re-growth experienced from shaving.
+ WHAT KIND OF SKIN REACTION CAN BE EXPECTED FROM WAXING?
Most clients experience a slight skin reaction when a waxing treatment is performed. It is very common to have a slight reddening of the skin. Also, when doing underarms or bikini lines, you may even have occasional blood spots.
These reactions are perfectly normal and will pass in a few hours. Simply applying an after-care lotion will speed up the recovery time and lessen the discomfort, if it exists.
