Which Massage Style Is Right For You?

July 11, 2017

Today, 2nd Street District massage therapist, Monique, gives us the 411 on the differences between three individual massage techniques.

Massage therapy is a vast field with a variety of different techniques and treatments. If you’re not a massage therapist, it can be a bit difficult choosing what type of technique is best for you. Well, take a deep breath. I’m going to break down the differences between the Big Three: Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Sports Massage. 

To start, Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Sports Massage are all massage modalities.  Within each of these modalities, I’ll use different massage techniques to help you achieve your individual goals. I like to tell my clients to think of massage as a blank canvas. The primary colors are the basic techniques of Swedish, Deep Tissue, and Sports, which provide the foundation for any session. By mixing these colors, or techniques, you get different variations and modalities. All of these different massage techniques can be incorporated into your session so that it caters to your unique and individual needs.

The 5 Most Popular Summer Hairstyles

July 7, 2017

Hi everyone!

It’s Diano from the River Oaks salon — and here we are in the first beautiful days of summer. As we dive into the heat and humidity, I want to share my take on some of the most popular hairstyles of the season. But before I do, I should give you some context for how I approach these styles.

  • These “takes” can change based on my clients’ needs, expectations, and desires.
  • I want to create something for you that you love.
  • Together, we’re going to create a stylish, fashionable, fun, and easy hairstyle.

The Five Most Popular Summer Hairstyles

1. Pixie Cut

What Makes the Pixie Cut Great?

It’s lightweight, low-maintenance, and offers you more freedom. You’ll use considerably fewer haircare products and save on time in the mornings, making it a true wash-and-go style. It’s great for a power look and allows you to play with different color trends. If you’re looking to stand out, the pixie cut helps to accentuate facial features.

Take Into Consideration…

You may be seeing your stylist more often for quick trims and touch-ups — and you may need to wash your hair more often due to the higher concentration of natural oils.

 

2. Bangs

Why Should I Get Bangs This Summer?

Yes, bangs are a commitment game-changer, but there are so many styles to choose. From blunt (bold!) to sweeping (face-framing and romantic!) to the fringe (softer! choppier!), bangs can be the main focus of your look. They shape and enhance the eyes, and for those looking to cover your forehead, this is a simple solution.

Take Into Consideration…

Unless you plan on growing them out, bangs need touch-ups frequently. Contrary to popular frustration with “in-between” bangs, if you are growing them out, I can create fun ways to maintain them easily.

Summer vacation! As a kid, it meant no school, unlimited time to hang out with friends, trips to theme parks, and so on; as an adult, it can mean jetting away to an exotic island or country to get a taste of something completely different from home.
