Most people don’t really know the difference between “just a good haircut” and a great haircut. And there’s little wonder why that's the case. The reason is because nobody has ever explained it to them! So, here goes There are two reasons most experts would agree on. 1. The cut itself must compliment your personality and face shape. For example: Remember Jennifer Aniston's cut? That was a great haircut because it complimented her specific facial characteristics. The cut would not have looked as good on Angelina Jolie. 2. A great haircut looks good even as it grows out. In other words, it should look great between services. Hair grows at a rate of 1/8” per week. Cutting the hair every 4-6 weeks maintains its shape and placement. Typically, if hair is not at least “trimmed” every 8-10 weeks, it will begin to split at the ends and break. When this happens (and left unattended), these ends will continue to split up the hair shaft, causing damage - damage that you cannot repair! Another thing (that might not make sense to the average person) is cutting the hair actually makes it grow faster and healthier. So, don’t make the mistake of letting your hair “grow out,” thinking that you’re making it healthier. Healthy hair is trimmed on a consistent basis. So, why not let Salon Phoebe help you find your perfect haircut? Now that you know what makes a great cut a great cut, pick up the phone and set up an appointment today!
Frequently asked questions about hair color. Q: What's the difference between semi-permanent and permanent hair color? The major difference is how long you want the color to last and how much of a change you actually want. If you're looking for something subtle, such as adding a layer of color or deepening your own natural hair color, a semi-permanent color is the best option for you. Semi-permanent colors are designed to wash out after about 6 to 12 shampoos. The real benefit to them is that the color is temporary, so there is not a big change "commitment” on your part. And, just think, you won’t have to deal with those pesky noticeable roots. One thing to note is that semi-permanents actually darken the hair. They don’t contain any ammonia or peroxide, so they can’t ever lighten your hair. So keep in mind that if you're looking to go dramatically lighter, semi-permanents are not the best choice for you. If you want a longer-lasting option, consider something called demi-permanent color. This lasts about twice as long as semi-permanent dye and has the same basic properties as semi-permanent color. But, if you want that dramatic change, a permanent hair color is your best option. What do we mean by dramatic? Any time that you “lighten” your hair or make it more than a shade or two darker, that's dramatic. If you are looking to hide the grays, permanent color is the only way to go. Permanent color does not wash out with shampooing. It is a blend of peroxide and ammonia that actually removes the color pigment from your hair and then deposits new color on top. When your hair grows in, the original color appears in the form of roots. And you will have to “re-touch” the roots every six weeks or so (depending on how fast your hair grows). Q: What is a single-process color? A single process is just the application of one color (or toner) to achieve an all-over color. You can still have some contrast depending on the color used or your existing hair color, but there is only one application - hence the term “single process.” Q: When and why are “foils” used? Foils are used to introduce multiple colors to a client’s hair. The foils allow the stylist to place color strategically in a hair design to achieve a certain look. Foils are also utilized when a stylist is trying to “highlight” the hair. Foils are not usually used on very short hair.

What is Brazilian Blowout? The Brazilian Blowout is the most innovative and effective professional smoothing treatment in the world! Through the use of a Brazilian Super Nutrient Complex and a proprietary polymer system, the Brazilian Blowout actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle. The end result is smooth, healthy, conditioned hair with radiant shine. Frequently Asked Questions. Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout? A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.Q. What kind of look will you get from the Brazilian Blowout? A. The hair will be left totally frizz-free, shiny, effortlessly manageable and with plenty of body and bounce. There will still be the option to wear hair curly/wavy (depending on the hair type) and the freedom to blow dry hair smooth and straight in a fraction of the time invested prior to receiving the treatment.Q. Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout if I have highlights and/or color? A. Yes, the Brazilian Blowout will actually improve the health of color-treated/highlighted hair by conditioning the hair while sealing the cuticle for enhanced color, reduced frizz and radiant shine. Q. Is the Brazilian Blowout going to make my hair straight? A. If your hair is wavy, the Brazilian Blowout will make your hair appear naturally straight and healthy. If your hair is very curly, it will minimize frizz while enhancing the appearance of the natural wave/curl. If you have straight, frizzy hair, this treatment will eliminate frizz and promote radiant shine. Q. How long does the Brazilian Blowout last? A. The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 weeks if the Acai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last. Q. Can you apply the Brazilian Blowout directly on top of other relaxers and strengtheners? A. Yes. The Brazilian Blowout actually works best on chemically treated hair, and helps to improve the hairs condition by fortifying each strand with essential amino acids.The Brazilian Blowout works great directly on top of a relaxer. Perform the relaxer first, Brazilian Blowout next, and then neutralize at the very end of both treatments. The Brazilian Blowout is great to perform when someone is trying to move away from having relaxers or Japanese straighteners. It puts movement back into the hair, allowing the hair to look its best. Q. Will my hair lose volume if I receive the Brazilian Blowout? A. No, your hair will not lose volume as a result of receiving the Brazilian Blowout. Your hair will maintain its natural volume and you will still receive great bend and memory when blow-drying and/or using a curling iron. Q. Can you color your hair the same day you receive a Brazilian Blowout? A. Yes, however, you must color your hair prior to having the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.
