Extensions by Shine's Resident Expert, Janna!

Extensions are a truly unique way of changing your look from short to long, from solid color to multidimensional color, or by adding immense amounts of volume in just seconds minutes or a few hours!

There are several different types of extensions: clip ends, tape ins, but the kind of extensions I prefer are Strand by Strand! 

I have used Great Lengths in the salon for the past decade and have seen some amazing transformations. From helping with thinning hair to helping someone grow their hair into another style. While providing you with all of these, they also lend length,volume and variation in tone and color. 

Although they can be more expensive, they do have a long life of 4 to 6 month and you still have the ability to shampoo, blow dry and style as normal! Change your look day to day by still using hot styling tools on your extensions, or day to night! 

Because of the wide range of possibilities, extensions are always trending, let's set up a consultation and see shy you would be a great candidate for them!

Rosie Says: PCA Chemical Peel

Are you ready to take your skin to the next level? Let’s talk about the PCA Chemical Peel.

Sure it’s a scary name but it has awesome results. Chemical peels are perhaps one of the most
misunderstood spa treatments out there, so I want to take some time to discuss what a chemical peel is and why you have nothing to fear.  In the end, you’ll love what they have to offer.

The topical application of acids is one of the most dependable and widely recognized methods of
improving the overall health and appearance of the skin. Advanced exfoliation can help you look
younger, reduce or eliminate skin imperfections such as sun spots and acne scars, and reduce the
appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Numerous studies have shown that all chemical peel solutions
stimulate collagen. It can be simply said that healthy skin is beautiful skin.

The PCA peel is a blended acid peel. A blended acid peel modifies the intensity of the solution but not the results. The modification allows for monthly treatments which in turn promotes healthy cellular
turnover rates. One of the best things to know is that these treatments are beneficial for most, if not all skin types. Sensitive skin becomes healthier at the cellular level and therefore stronger and less reactive.

Additionally, topically applied products are able to absorb into the skin more effectively when it is properly exfoliated, allowing for accelerated results.

So, with all of these benefits and little or no downtime involved, let’s take your skin care to the next level.
