July News 2018 4

Whether you’re sporting a soft honey balayage or full-on icy platinum, you’re covered with Kevin Murphy’s Colouring. Angels collection. Released just in time for summer, these conditioning gloss treatments come in an array of blonde shades to promote color longevity and shine. 

As one of our resident balayage & color correction specialists, Stylist Ryan Alexander, recommends the Colouring. Angels to his guests to take home post-color session. Ryan loves that the treatment not only helps with the upkeep of your color between visits, but that the olive leaf, grape and green tea extracts restore moisture to your hair. He suggests using the appropriate shade match treatment once a week to maintain the tone and vibrancy you love!

Stylist Megan <3s R+Co’s Waterfall!

June News 7 18

As R+Co‘s latest scrumptious addition, Waterfall Moisture and Shine Lotion has quickly become one of our stylists favorites! As the lighter version of R+Co’s High Dive Moisture and Shine Creme, Waterfall is ideal for finer hair textures. With balancing ingredients like rosemary & witch hazel paired with oils & proteins, Waterfall keeps your hair hydrated and protected!

Stylist Megan reaches for Waterfall when she’s looking for a pre-blowout styling aid that won’t weigh hair down, but will combat frizz and create shine. Megan likes the versatility of this lotion since it keeps hair manageable and smooth whether you’re blowdrying or air-drying. She recommends adding Waterfall to your routine for a frizz-free summertime look!

Have a terrific start to your summer!

Senior Stylist Joseph <3s R+Co’s Dart

april18news5

Dart is the newest on the R+Co scene! The pocket-size pomade stick was made to show off a haircut’s shape and tame fly-aways. With castor seed oil, candelilla wax and jojoba esters, Dart gives you the perfect blend of shine-inducing moisture and flexible hold.

Senior Stylist Joseph Hoffmeier is known for his creative, textured cuts so it’s no surprise he gravitated towards Dart. He recommends applying Dart on shorter lengths to add definition or to mid-length looks for a cool, unkempt style.  Joseph also loves it’s miniature size so you can throw it in your gym bag or purse for on-the-go touch-ups!

Happy Spring to you!
