Salon Twist is excited to offer our clients the new and improved Kerastase Reflection Chromatique for Color-Treated Hair!
The new Reflection Touché Chromatique Kerastase is the very first personalized at-home color correction care system of its kind. This system will refresh the vibrancy and shine of your color while neutralizing any unwanted tones. It is available in four delectable shades including Cool Blonde, Red, Cool Brown, and Copper.
When you color your hair, you still aim for it to be healthy. Many of us love the look as we leave the salon. After a few weeks pass by, we begin to notice the vibrant shade is fading and the smooth and shiny texture turns to bland and brittle.
Don’t settle for ponytails and updos to avoid washing out your color any longer! Salon Twist is excited to offer clients the new Reflection Chromatique for Color Treated Hair which now neutralizes water particle aggressors as it nourishes, protects, and prolongs color.
This personalized color and care system is for use between your color services and only needs to be applied once a week! It includes:
1. Masque Chromatique- A multi-protecting mask to deeply nourish hair.
2. Touches Chromatique - Ultra-concentrated direct dyes available in four different shades to revive and enhance vibrancy and shine. This adds a subtle deposit of color for longer-lasting color intensity between salon visits.
3. At Home Preparation Tools - Mixing bowl and spatula
This system is so easy to use. A video to the 5 step process can be found below and we are happy to answer any questions you may have. Now your beautiful Salon Twist look will last even longer. Contact us today to get yours!
Summertime means letting your hair down, enjoying the outdoors, and soaking in the season. Here on the Emerald Coast, that means lots of heat, humidity, and exposure to UV rays for your lovely locks. These elements can affect your hair by breaking down its proteins and weakening it which can lead to dull, lifeless hair. Don’t worry, the experienced hair dressers at Salon Twist at here to help! No matter your hair type, we have tips and products to keep your mane shining all summer long.
Fine & Flat
If your hair type is fine, it can tend to go flat in humidity. A volumizing shampoo and conditioner will be your new Summer BFF turning your flat hair to fabulous hair. We recommend Kerastase Bain Volumifique Amplifying and Reinforcing Shampoo as it locks in moisture, protects and won’t weigh hair down. That’s a win-win-win in our book!
Fine hair is also more prone to UV damage; especially those with color treated hair. Protect it from the sun and washout by using Kerastase Bain Chroma Captive Shampoo and Conditioners which protect against anti-oxidant aggressors and premature color fading while adding the “oomph” fine hair needs. We also suggest one of our in-salon treatments formulated to your individual hair type to help extend your color while conditioning it to lock in moisture and shine.
We also recommend using a volumizing product like Mousse Bouffante by Kerastase or Volumista Mist by Oribe before you blow dry. Once applied simply turn your head upside down and blow dry while gently massaging your roots. Create your style and set your look with a texturing spray that adds volume and flexible hold. We suggest Swept Up Volume Powder Spray or Dry Texturizing Spray by Oribe.
Coarse & Curly
On the other side of the strand spectrum are those of you with wavy or curly hair. Managing and maintaining your curls in the humidity may seem like a battle, but a few products will make it a breeze.
Using a sulfate-free and silicone-free conditioner from the Kerastase Discipline Shape in Motion For Curls will create perfect curl definition in one step. You’ll experience natural bounce and a smooth finish. Define curls with the nourishing hair Masque Curl Ideal by Kerastase for tight, thick curls that tames volume at the root and promotes all-day frizz control.
One more quirk to having curly hair type is breakage. We know it can be hard when enjoying the beach during the hot Summer months but try not to wash it every day. Instead try using a dry shampoo like Gold Lust Dry Shampoo by Oribe. This miracle product instantly cleans by absorbing buildup, oil and impurities with translucent powders so you can extend your blowout and prevent damage while soothing scalp and restoring strength and softness with a fresh scent that lasts all day.
To learn about these products and hair care tips please stop by our boutique salon located along scenic highway 30A in Seagrove Beach Florida or contact us to make an appointment and let one of our talented hairdressers customize a regimen specifically designed for your hair type. With a few key products and a little know-how, you’ll easily unlock your best summer hair yet.
It’s Springtime and you know what that means…time to freshen up your look without adding time to your daily beauty regimen! At Salon Twist, our goal is to help clients achieve high-end, fashion forward hairstyles without the hassle of high maintenance upkeep. Here are a few looks making waves this Summer and some of our favorite products to keep your hair healthy and happy while enjoying the sun, sand and surf!
One color trend we love right now is Bronde. Nope, that’s not a typo. Bronde changes as the light hits it and can appear either blonde or a golden brown. It's the perfect warm-toned hair color that works well with most skin tones. Balayage is another popular coloring technique. Dimension is created by hand painting highlights into the hair and this creates a softer and more natural-looking effect.
Next up, let’s talk cuts! Razor-cut layers and Lobs (a.k.a long bobs) are great looks for Summer. This style adds movement and body to hair by taking the bulk off your length which will keep you cool in the hot Summer months. Bangs continue to rock the fashion scene as they can enhance any face shape if worn the right way. From angled, fringe, blunt, or parted we can help you decide which style is best for your face shape. Side-swept bangs can be styled, braided, pinned or slicked back, adding versatility with many styling possibilities. Of all the hairstyles out there, Beachy Waves are one of the most desired looks during the Summer months. Easy to style and great for most hair types, this look is even better when hair is slightly dirty hair rather than clean, which is always a win in our book.
Finally, it is time to style! At Salon Twist we are passionate about hair care and offer a wide variety of luxurious products. If you’re looking for products to add some fun and funkiness to your hairstyle then we recommend Oribe’s Swept Up Volume Powder Spray. Your ‘do will reach new heights with this root-lift powder and even better this dramatic volume will stand up to the humid temps we feel along the gulf coast. Two other summer must-have are Oribe’s Dry Shampoo and Dry Texture Spray. Both are perfect for extending your blowout, as they absorb buildups of oil and impurities while also soothing your scalp and giving hair strength, texture and softness.
It’s important to protect your hair from the harsh effects of the sun, salt and surf so we recommend using the nurturing line of Kerastase products. Hands down, we think their Elixir Ultime is the most versatile product for every hair texture and every situation. Use a few drops of Elixir Ultime oils to lock-in moisture and shine before heading to the beach. This wonder oil traps in moisture and will protect against the dulling and damaging effects of saltwater.
Stay tuned for more on our favorite Summer hair care products next month. Contact us today to schedule your appointment and let us help you Spring into Summertime with a fresh new high-end, low-maintenance look!
What comes to mind when you think of February? Most would say it’s the month of love. Whether it’s sending flowers and chocolates or a simple phone call to say I love you; it’s about showing the ones we love how much they mean to us. Expressing our love to others is important but I would like to challenge you to think about Self-Love.
self-love (self ˈləv/)
noun: regard for one's own well-being and happiness (chiefly considered as a desirable rather than narcissistic characteristic.)
Ask yourself this question…What will happen if I start practicing self-love? Think of self-love as your foundation. It holds you steady and fuels who you are and how you think about yourself. You can’t expect to love others fully if you don’t love yourself. For those that have experienced the power of self-love, we can agree that the effects are quite magical. Our lives begin to positively shift the moment we start loving ourselves. Life begins to move forward with ease and things seem to fall into place.
When we are empowered with self-love our relationships change for the better. Our health improves because we begin to appreciate who we are and what we’ve accomplished leading to positive thinking and appreciating the true beauty that lies within ourselves. As you've heard me say many times, beauty begins on the inside and how you nurture yourself impacts those around you. Practicing self-love can be as simple as treating yourself to a new ‘do or a much-needed massage. It’s simply committing to the idea of nurturing and celebrating you!
In the next month, I am excited to share I will be launching the Inner Matrix group. We will meet for five weeks and study mental, emotional, physical and spiritual balance as taught by my mentor, Joey Klein.
In today’s busy and hectic world, finding tools to focus the mind and empower your emotions are key to living a more balanced and peaceful life. Inner Matrix Groups provide these tools and are based on both cutting-edge neuroscience and ancient wisdom practices. It illuminates proven approaches to living a rich and meaningful life with the end goal of achieving a life more deeply connected to spirit.
Here are the topics we will explore over the five weeks:
Week 1 – Focusing the Mind
Week 2 – Shifting the Emotions
Week 3 – Connecting with the Physical Body
Week 4 – Creating Your Vision for Life
Week 5 – Wrap up and Connection
Feel free to reach out and ask me any questions you may have. I hope you will join me on this five-week journey towards nurturing and honoring yourself. As we look ahead to a year of real personal growth, let’s focus on the beginning – fill your vessels first!
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
