Children in the Salon

Should you or should you not bring your child to the salon while you get your hair done? This is the question that most stylist do not want to answer. Some salon owners will say no children allowed, some say children allowed for services only and others don't say anything at all. 
Here is my take on it. If you are going to bring your children to the salon while you are getting your hair done, make sure it's for a limited time. If you are getting a chemical service, you may want to think about a sitter. Most children can not sit in one place for more than 45 minutes to an hour at a time. 
 If a sitter is not an option, then bring something for the child to do: books, video games, a toy, snacks etc. If you bring a snack make sure it's okay with the stylist if they eat while waiting and pick up anything that they leave behind. 
Remember the salon owner is not being rude or mean if they suggest not bringing a child to the salon. Safety is the main concern. Please realize the salon is not a place for the child to run around and play.  There are many ways a child can get hurt from falling to getting burned. There's also chemicals that can hurt a child if they get in them. The retail shelves are not something that the kids should be allowed to play near. Bottles can break and if digested it could be toxic as well as burn their eyes if it gets in them. 
Another factor is you are paying for a quality service along with the other salon guest. If your child is not sitting next to you being quiet then more than likely your stylist along with all the other stylist are watching to make sure they don't get hurt which could have a not so nice outcome for your hairstyle. Remember it is very difficult for you to pay attention to what is going on behind you while your stylist is putting foils which ultimately means and unsupervised child. 
Last but not least is the relaxation. Many people come to the salon to have "me time". That time where they don't have to be mom for just a little while. Relaxation for everyone is the key factor. You as well as the other guest in the salon are paying for a relaxing, quality service. 
While most stylist and salon owners know that sitters are not always an option please be considerate when bringing your child to the salon. Remember your "Sanity"at Salon Sanity is a extremely important!

Have you ever wondered if you could go red? Which red would look best on you? Salon Sanity Stylist gives some tips to help you decide which color would look best with your eye color and complexion.
Choosing the right RED haircolor for you!

Now a days redheads are having all the fun. Everyone can pull off red, it's all about getting the correct tone for you.
When going red make sure you don't opt for monotones. Reds need to have multi dimensional reflections or they will look drab and flat.

To make eyes pop:

Blue/hazel-Choose cool tones with red wine and plum  undertones.
Brown- need a warmer tone that is more golden or copper.

Skin:

Fair skin- vibrant carrot auburns and soft gingers work best.
Medium Skin- go with golden red and rich coppers or copper highlights
Dark Skin- Blue reds, violet reds are a must. 

Reds seem to come in various hues. Stop by Salon Sanity and let your stylist help you pick the perfect red.

What Type of Hairstyle Should I Have with My Face Shape

Have you ever wondered what you would look like with bangs, a bob or a pixie cut? Facial shapes play a big part in this. Salon Sanity Team member Cheryl Farman has put together some clues on helping you decide what will look best on you:
If you have a round face look for the following:

ROUND
asymmetrical styles- a round face looks really great with an uneven
cut, meaning a mix of lengths. Also if you add a deep side part and
long side sweep bang, your face will look even slimmer. You can use a
finishing wax to coax and keep the bangs to the side such as the
REDKEN'S Shape Factor 22

Long Layers- if you want to wear a center part, the way to make it
work is to have hair a few inches longer than your shoulders with
layers that hit the jaw line. Cutting it  a bit on the sides to create
subtle angles. Prevent short layers from frizzing which can add bulk
around your face by spraying it with REDKEN'S Triple Take 32 which
will control frizzes and will keep the hair in place.

Sleek Ponytails- an easy way to add definition is with a sleek
ponytail secured at or above the height of your ears.Keeping your hair
smoothed opposed to big and bouncy, which can add bulk. We recommend
running the Pureology Smooth Perfection Shaping Control Gel through
the hair to keep it sleek.

Piecey Bob- the key to wearing hair above the shoulders is styling it
imprecisely. A soft layered cut intentionally mused. Use a thickening
product such as Pureology's Pure Volume Blow Dry Amplifier and round
brush on damp hair to add a bit of movement and wave.

Defined Pixie- try a pixie that is defined with pieces which help to
emphasize the cheekbones up with this cut. Spray it with REDKENS Wax
Blast 10 to add definition and add texture.

Angled Bobs- try long dramatic layers that sweep along the chin and a
shortening of the hair as you go back to the nape of the neck. This
cut gives you structure and angles. The hard lines of it balance out
the soft lines of the round face.  Use a volumizing mouse such as 
REDKEN'S Guts 10 to add body at the roots for extra slimming but be
wary of adding any to the sides of the face since that can widen your
facial shape.

OVAL:

Blunt Bangs- if your face tends to look long, straight bangs across
the brow line can help break up the length by creating the illusion of
width. Keeping the hair blunt with one or two passes of a flat iron.

Center Part- a center part on hair that's shoulder length or longer is
nice against an oval backdrop. To avoid looking too severe, add some
soft waves with REDKEN 'S Fashion Waves 07 Texturizing Seaspray. If
you want a bit more texture, wrap random sections around a large
barrel curling iron. This effect is incredibly romantic.

Bobs with Bangs- a collarbone grazing bob with side swept bangs help
break up a long face and add softness. Keep bangs in place by using
REDKEN's Quick Dry 18 Hairspray.

Short EdgyCut- perfect for oval faces. It's definitely a notice me
look if you are feeling daring go for it! There's something very sexy
and feminine about showing off  your neck and ears with such hard
lines . Use REDKEN's Wax Blast 10 to make it look piecey.

SQUARE FACE;

Thinned out Bob-a soft tapered bob that hits right around the chin
works well on a square face. add some texture to offset any severity
at the jawline

Tousled Shag- Go for  a shag with body to emphasize layers and to
de-emphasize squareness.

Wavy Ends- the waves from the ear on down help to obscure any
severity in the jawline. Use a large round brush to smooth hair then
spritz hair with a waving spray such as REDKENS Fashion Waves 07 Sea
spray.

Long and Straight-this softens square angles. A center part opens up
the middle of your face drawing attention away from the jawline.

HEART SHAPE FACES:
bouncy bob- for a heart shaped face, hair that hits right below the
jaw helps fill in the area around the chin and it de- emphasizes the
triangle. To blur those lines even more, add a bit of body with  a
round brush to add volume.

Deep Side Part: with long hair start with a clearly defined side part
then add side swept bangs. The idea is to bring your eyes out.

Pixie with Side Swept Bangs- a pixie with a soft side swept bangs
soften any hard features. Finger comb a light cream such as Purology's
Smooth Perfection before going over it with a round brush and blow
dryer for smoothness.
Stop by Salon Sanity and have one of our team members help you pick that perfect style. Stay tune for more helpful styling tips from the team!
