How can I make my hair color look good longer?
There are a number of things that you can do after you leave the salon to keep your hair color looking better, longer.
- Use the products recommended by your stylist to work with the specific line of color used to color your hair.
- Let your stylists perform the proper pre-treatment on your hair prior to color application. This will provide longer lasting color results, as well as providing your colorist with a clean, healthy palate to create a masterpiece.
- Use cooler water when washing your hair.
- Swimming in chlorinated water will fade hair color quickly. Washing your hair out with distilled water after a swim will help.
- Try avoiding exposure to direct sunlight for long periods of time. Many of the products that your stylist recommends for your hair color will be formulated with elements to help protect your colored hair from the sun.
- Ask for a consultation and home care advice from any of our team members.
How often should I get a haircut?
The average head of hair grows about one-half inch every month, and on average, hair should be trimmed or the ends should be dusted every 6-8 weeks. On shorter, more polished looks, it may require freshening up as often as every 4 weeks.
Our stylists are educated and trained with precision cutting techniques, please inquire with us for more details!
Why do people say trimming your hair helps it to grow faster?
Trimming does not necessarily make hair grow faster, but it does keep the hair intact and maintains length. Keeping the ends free from damage is essential for optimal growth.
When split ends occur, the hair breaks and sheds – essentially cutting itself. This can all be avoided by keeping your ends fresh and damage-free with consistent trims.
Trimming your hair on a regular basis and using a consistent hair care regimen will help maintain healthy, beautiful hair.

Why do nails turn yellow?
Discoloration or “yellowing” of the nails is caused by the frequent use of heavily pigmented nail polish colors. Not using a base coat when polishing the nails may also contribute to discoloration. A simple solution would be to apply your base coat and allow it to dry for at least a minute before applying polish; and when removing polish, lightly buff the plate to remove the discoloration.
How do I stop my heels from cracking?
