Just in: Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight Styling Creme

June 4, 2014


We have good news for textured/curly-hair — especially those who continue to search for the fastest/”green”-est way to get straight locks: we’re now carrying Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight styling creme at all three of our locations.

Here’s what you need to know about this awesome new product:

1. It progressively straightens curls with every use.
2. As you blow-dry your hair, plant-derived fibers create a locking layer to help hold your hair straight.
3. Organic cassava root forms a barrier against intense humidity. Translation: goodbye frizz!
4. Over time, straight styling becomes faster and easier. In fact, after five consecutive applications of Naturally Straight creme, hair will stay straight for up to three washes.

Come in and snag some for yourself!

Do You Color Your Hair? Have You Tried the Ammonia-Free Organic Color System?

March 7, 2014


What makes the Organic Color System different from the rest? Our Organic Master Colorist, Kelli, has the answers.

This ammonia-free, oil-based color line will exceed your expectations while keeping your hair healthy and shiny. Kelli has been using the line almost exclusively for four years. She began her career at the Sassoon Academy and has worked as an educator for several color lines.

So, what exactly made her stick with Organic Color after 15 years in the industry? Simply put: no ammonia. After becoming a color specialist, she felt fatigued and was having a hard time with the ammonia smell that’s found in many color lines. While doing some research, she came across the Organic Color System and was thrilled to see what great results they offer without the use of ammonia. Since this fateful discovery, Kelli has become a certified educator for the brand. Her favorite thing about the Organic System is that it works for everyone. The color is shiny, there’s less fading, and it works great on all hair types. Win-win.

[SlideDeck2 id=5569 iframe=1]

Top 5 Reasons Women Get Hair Extensions:

1) Add instant length, volume or thickness to their hair. You always wanted long hair or thicker hair and for whatever reason have never been able to grow your own hair out.

2) Cover up a really bad haircut. So, you got a really short shag hair style and you absolutely hate it? Solution: Hair Extensions.

3) Add bold or subtle highlights to your hair without chemical processing.

4) Get a new look for a special occasion (wedding, prom, formal event).

5) Just for fun! Some people like to experiment with their hair styles. Hair extensions offer an instant new look.

How long does it take to apply?

Application time varies from 45 to 90 minutes.

What type of hair?

100% remy human hair. Remy human hair is the highest quality available, staying shiny and “tangle free” longer than any other.

How long does it last?

This system will last 6 up to 8 weeks and can be reapplied at least 1 time (hair re-usage depends on how well you take care of the hair).


Consultation required. Pricing ranges from $400 to $1100, depending on the type of transformation.

Available transformations:
Volume – add up to 40% more volume
Length – with hair panels in up to 20 inch length, the opportunity for very long hair is great
Trend – add length in specific areas, create asymmetrical looks
Corrective – fix a bad haircut without cutting more hair

Hair Across America: Fall’s Top Color and Cut Trends

From Lily Kwong and Lena Dunham both chopping it all off—Lily to a bob, Lena to a pixie—in the midst of New York Fashion Week to brunette Erika Bearman’s (aka OscarPRGirl’s) radical turn as an ice blonde just last week, change is in the air this fall. We checked in with some of the top salons across the country to find out what style and color trends are turning heads this season.­

The Salon: Salon by milk + honey
The Look: Red
“Everyone’s going red this season. Even my blonde clients are going auburn and chestnut,” says stylist Amanda Lee. “Depending on how bold the client wants to be, I’ll pick three shades that are really close to each other in level, but vary the tone—for example, a red-red, a copper red, and a mahogany red. Then I’ll section out the hair and apply the tones in a blocking pattern. When the hair falls, you see all three colors simultaneously but can’t tell where they’re coming from. The effect is really soft and dimensional.”
Salon by milk + honey, 237 West 3rd Street; color with Amanda Lee, from $65.
