For hair that has curl, texture, body, and movement, it’s time to join the American Wave movement. Available exclusively at our Arboretum Market location with stylists Susanna and Krystal, this new, damage-free, texturizing service creates soft, natural-looking waves and curls.
Perm vs. American Wave
Traditionally, perms create tight, patterned curls by using harsh chemicals in the hair. The American Wave treatment uses different styling tools, such as soft Flexi rods which allow the stylist to create looser more natural-looking curls and waves. Plus, this service doesn’t cause damage to your hair. After the service, the wave will continue to drop and loosen the curl for up to four weeks. This allows the hair to grow out nicely, creating that tousled, beachy look.
For a step-by-step look, check out the ARROJO American Wave video.
Which hair types are best for American Wave?
All hair types are welcomed to try the American Wave. Recently, the American Wave launched the new American Color Wave, which is perfect for clients with color-treated hair.
You’re ready to try the American Wave, now what?
Before booking your American Wave appointment, please call 512.236.1115 to schedule a consultation with our stylists. This service takes about three hours and will transform the way you look. Along with the American Wave service, clients will also receive one complimentary blowout to be used seven days after the service. During this time, our stylist will help you find the perfect shampoo, conditioners, and styling products for your new look.
P.S. the Kevin Murphy Resort Spray is a fantastic choice to quickly enhance and hold the curl.

It’s almost that time of year where you can belt out from the proverbial rooftop, “School’s out forever!,” and really mean it… at least for a few months. And if the next step in end-of-school-year festivities involves a cap and gown for you, then let SALON by milk + honey help you out in the “hat hair” department. Opt for a style that’s both polished and youthful, and most importantly, looks good with a cumbersome cap/mortar board on top.
Below, a handful of ideas to get the hair-spiration going. We’re here to make your grad day even more stylish.
If last year’s hair craze was “the lob” — that’s a long short bob, in case you were wondering — then 2014 is already all about the bob. It’s chic, shapes/sculpts your face, and let’s face it, it’s one of the easier hair lengths to manage on a day-to-day basis. You can do an edgier cut (blunt layers), a softer one (reminiscent of a 1920s flapper bob), or have a little more fun with it and add some ombré while you’re at it.
Look to the most recent slew of celebrities to go short and blunt for proof of its now-trending popularity.
and Beyoncé, for just a hot second.
There’s also Michelle Dockery of ‘Downton Abbey,’ Lena Dunham, Elisabeth Moss of ‘Mad Men,’ and Kat Graham of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ doing it too.
Are you feeling the bob? With the New Year-new you resolutions and attitude set into motion, this is the time to experiment. Translation: chop it all off. And we’ve got just the place for you to do it…
