Asphalt Work

In continuing to improve The Village at Riverwoods Community on Wednesday May 29 the South section of Edgewood Drive (the street right in front of the salon) will be closed and on Thursday May 30 the North section of Edgewood Drive will be closed to seal coat the road.
 Basically this means the road right in front of the salon will be closed next Tuesday and Wednesday so the best place to park will be south of the salon over by Color Me Mine to get to us. We apologize in advance for the inconvenience!

My Little Pony

With prom and wedding season upon us every bride and high school teen are all asking for some updo inspiration. Take a cue from Kate Beckinsale and her youthful pony. It's the perfect style for any age- youthful and flirty for young girls and regal and feminine for mature women. As always, updos work best on dirty hair (it will hold better) but this can also be done on clean hair.
1. On dry hair smooth Bb. Hairdressers Invisible Oil on ends to condition the cuticle and prevent breakage. Spray roots with Bb. Hair Powder for volume and to soak up hair oils.
2. Curl hair with a 2 inch curling iron.
3. Back comb the top section of your hair and spray with Bb. Spray de Mode Hairspray for hold.
4. Gather all hair into a high ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Pin It

Fresh from the Beach

Sadly we live far from the ocean, but that doesn't mean you can't create the perfect beach waves in your very own bathroom! All you need is a curling iron and some Bb. Surf Spray to create these easy, laid-back waves.
1. On dry hair spray Does it All hairspray from roots to ends for heat protection.
2. Gather a 1 to 2-inch section of hair. Near the base, make a half turn with your iron and let sit for a few seconds before slowly releasing the curl.
3. With the same section of hair, make another half turn with your iron facing the opposite direction. Hold for a few seconds and gently release.
4. Spritz Bb. Surf Spray throughout hair to break up the curls and give the hair more texture.
The resulting look is a cross between a finger wave and a curling iron set but requires half the effort! Pin It
