You never know when the smallest act of kindness can make an enormous difference in someone's day or life.

Product Spotlight: Andrea's Holiday Styling Go-Tos


When I was first introduced to the Style Winder, I must say I thought, "...great, another gimmick." Well, I was wrong! This tool is amazing not only for us stylists, but you too! The iron heats up in seconds, which is an awesome feature for those last minute touchups. The temperature is adjustable and allows you to create curls and waves fast and more importantly, it is beyond easy. I love this iron and it has totally change my view on "curling hair"






My favorite styling product of the moment is Anti Gravity Spray from Kevin.Murphy. I love the ease of using a spray-in styler and blows my mind when it comes to volume! For those who are gel or foam challenged, this is the product for you! Just spray in wet hair, comb through with a wide comb and you are on your way to a great hair day! Not to mention the amazing fragrance from KM products, we all know fragrance is everything!




With these two products, your go-to holiday hair will be fab,
Andrea

Rosie Says: Men's Skin Care Is Important!


Hey guys, this month we are focused on your skin care needs. Although men traditionally spend less time on skin care, the benefits of a daily routine should not be ignored. These benefits include but don't stop at: a younger, more youthful appearance, healthier looking skin and smoother shaves.
Men's skin is different from women's and daily shaving can lead to inflammation.Higher testosterone levels lead to oilier skin that remains stronger later in life. However, as men age and hormone levels decrease the skin's ability to produce new and protect existing collagen is diminished.
A simple yet effective daily routine can include just a little more than cleansing and shaving. Sunscreen with broad spectrum protection should be applied liberally to the face and neck.By replacing that sunscreen with a nighttime moisturizer your routine can be complete. Washing your face at night is an important step considering environmental exposure throughout the day.
Whatever your age, if you are ready to step up your game, you can then add in a serum to help a particular challenge.Whether you are correcting an acne issue, ingrown whiskers or preventing wrinkles, adding a serum into the routine can make a world of difference.
The SKIN CARE SOLUTION FOR MEN trial size kit offers you a chance to try a 3-step system that will keep your skin calm, hydrated and healthy. Recommended daily products include THE TOTAL FACE AND BODY CLEANSER, TOTAL STRENGHTH SERUM, WEIGHTLESS PROTECTION BROAD SPECTRUM SPF 45 and REBALANCE MOISTURIZER.
We also offer some great treatments.The DETOX DEEP PORE TREATMENT purges the skin of blackheads leaving it purified and with a clearer complexion.The LINE MINIMIZING TREATMENT FOR MEN is effective in treating aging skin, pigment disorders, smoker's skin and photodamage.

Product Spotlight: L'Oréal Smooth Essence


L'Oréal Smooth Essence


I'm in love with L'Oréal Smooth Essence, weightless smoother for fine and limp hair. Sometimes finding a product that smoothes the hair without weighing it down is hard to find but L'Oréal has delivered with this bottle.

Smooth Essence has a small amount of hold which allows fine, limp hair to build up body! The smoother is formulated with protein extract, UV filter and vitamins to repair and reinforce hair. While adding a beautiful shine, it can also be layered with Cashmere Gelee which provides shine and extended anti-frizz control for all day results, perfect for the windy Fall days that are coming!


Till next time,
James

Dustin's Summer Tips

Whether you're relaxing on a tropical beach, cruising the lake, stomping the pavement in the city or hanging in the mountains, summer opens up the door for new styles and opportunities! 

Summer Products to Swear By:

Want to enhance that beach wave? Throw Kevin Murphy Hair Resort Spray in your beach bag and spray in to the hair to have a natural and beautiful style throughout the day. 




Always spray a leave-in conditioner to shield and protect the midstrands and ends of hair from the natural damage that can happen from uv rays. It will also help prevent color from fading. 








      
           Kevin.Murphy Blonde Angel 

Blondes! Hair can get sunburnt just like skin! This may cause an unwanted golden/yellow tone to the hair. Kevin Murphy Blonde angel wash and rinse can bring u back to the color you loved when you walked out of the salon! This can also help our gorgeous natural gray and silver clients as well! 





Enhance Your Natural Summer Highlights! 
Twist and braid your hair, styling hair differently, giving each strand a different sun kissed shade. Try top knots, side buns, fishtail and french braids to create a natural ombré or ballyage effect. 


 


PROTIP: also avoid spray on sunscreen around the face as it can get in the hair and create really "unusual hair color" try traditional lotions or powder face sunscreen. 

Enjoy your summer!

Rosie Says: Treat Your Skin Right This Summer

We all love the warm sunshine, being poolside or digging our toes in the sand. We are always looking for ways to protect, nourish and pamper our skin, while fighting the signs of aging.

Three important aspects of summer skin care include exfoliation, nourishment and fighting free radicals, the skin's #1 offender of aging. This can be achieved by choosing any of these peel-alternatives that offer strong results without having to be compliant to after-care restrictions that a chemical peel may have.  They will offer you the opportunity to rejuvenate your skin by keeping it free of toxins, leading to a brighter and clearer complexion.  These treatments are options for all skin types.

A great place to start is The Detox Treatment. Perspiration and oil production increase during warm weather, causing faster accumulation of dead cells that clog the pores. The treatment's exfoliation stimulates much needed cell turnover and begins the regenerating process.  The Detox Treatment promotes a clearer complexion as it purges the skin of unwanted toxins.

The Oxygenating Treatment deals with environmental stress, one of the more significant contributors in the aging process.  This treatment helps stimulate circulation by rejuvenating sluggish, stressed skin as it draws oxygen to the surface.  A great choice for anyone who wants to shine bright for a special event!

The Intensive Vitamin C Treatment offers nourishment and supplies energy to the skin cells. This is vital to summer skin care as vitamin C provides is a great defense against photo aging caused by exposure to the sun.

The time is now, treat yourself and your skin to a much needed rejuvenation! Through August, enjoy these three treatments at only $75, a $90 value. Call 704-334-3211 to schedule today!

Rosie Says: Waxing Basics

Rosie Says: Tips for Summer Waxing

The time is now and with a little planing around your beach and lake trips, you will be fully prepped when it's tim to ull out skin bearing clothes.

The most popular waxing options for women include the underarms, arms, the bikini area and legs, while back waxing is a great option for men. 

Consider hair length. Most suggest the hair be 1/4" long, I find it more helpful to just let it grow! Fight the urge before your first appointment to shave for 3-4 weeks.The one time extended growth period allows hair to grow evenly, which will give you a smoother, longer lasting wax from the start.

Be nice to your skin! Moisturizing and gentle exfoliation bi-weekly helping the follicle release easier promoting a smoother, longer lasting result.

I won't tell you it doesn't hurt, there will be some discomfort.  For relief take an over the counter anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen about an hour before appointment. If you have extra sensitive skin, take a short soad in Aveeno Oatmeal Bath after your appointment. Regular waxing is the best remedy though because hair softens as does sting!

Now have fun in the sun, with SPF protection of course!

Amy's Color Corner: Balayage and Ombré are HOT!

With summer just around the corner, our phones are ringing off the hook with clients looking to lighten up their locks! The hottest trends in hair fashion right now are balayage and ombré, both of which are perfect for summer. To be sure you get exactly what your looking for, know the difference in these two trends. 

Balayage is a form of highlighting that involves hand painting various sections of hair, very subtly at the root moving into more strength towards the ends. This is a very natural, sun kissed look that doesn't involve every strand. The grow out is soft and natural, and the effect is too.
 
 
Ombré is also a form of hand painting, similar to balayage, but it does involve every strand. All the ends are lightened from the tips to about midway up the strand. Very rarely will any color come near the roots of your hair except in the very front bang area. There is a pretty minimal grow out with this since you start out with a pretty natural/dark root area and the effect is very strong and fashion forward.


 
If your still not sure which way to go, be sure to bring in pictures of looks you like and a shine stylist can guide you in the best direction to suit your personal style. 

*as a side note, both of these techniques are advanced and are best left to an experienced, long time stylist. To correct a botched job is always difficult, time consuming and expensive. Moral of the story...leave it to the licensed professionals!!

Weekend Hair Blues


Happy Friday to all of you Shine followers!  

I've been looking at weekend transitions online and to my suprise I'm finding that "weekend hair" doesn't necessarily change from "work week hair" as much as it used to.  

This Spring, the messy bun and messy updo seem to be the trend. and even though it may look simple enough, it can be a trial.  If it's not a challenge when putting it up, it could be come a challenge to keep it looking great throughout the night (a.k.a long trips to the bathroom to readjust the greatness of the messiness)

Kevin Murphy has a great solution to this... (pause for dramatic effect and shameless plug)... it called the Sewing.Kit!

I know what you're thinking... what the heck is a sewing kit doing in a salon??  Well, It's a new way to perfect and keep an updo going all weekend long by litterally sewing a style in.  

So this it my challege to you fellow Shiners...change it up for the weekend!  Get a little crazy and out of that comfort zone that we've snuggled oh so nice and tightly into!  

Here are some great examples!
