Want to spice up your hair without the hassle of the curling iron? Then the digital perm is your new best friend. But first things first. What is a digital perm and how is it different from a regular perm?

The biggest difference between a digital perm and a regular perm is the use of heat vs. perming solution. A digital perm uses the power of heat to recompose the structure of your hair. Where as a regular perm, also known as a cold perm, uses perming solution. Each roller for a digital perm has electric heat running through it which helps your curls last longer, creating big beautiful curls like you'd get with a curling iron.

Once you get a digital perm, your morning styling's a breeze. Just twist your hair with your fingers as you blow dry and you're done.

Of course, treating your hair after any perm is going to be super important. Make sure you consult your hairstylist for the right type of products to use after your perm.

Benefits of a scalp massage. Treat your hair from the roots up.




Did you know that blood circulation plays an important role in healthy, beautiful hair? Smooth blood flow in your body brings a nice flow of nutrients to your scalp. Things like stress can slow down blood circulation. It closes off vital nutrient passages to your scalp and eventually weakens the roots of your hair.

That's why we have head spa menus at our salon along with an array of scalp massage products you can use at home. If you get one of our head spa services at the salon, our stylists will not only give you an amazing massage, but will also give you tips and tricks on how to massage your scalp at home. So, the next time you're here, give your scalp a little extra love.

3 ways to bring back hair volume




Did you know that we humans have an average of 100,000 hair strands? We know it sometimes doesn’t feel like it. If we have all that hair, where did the volume go?


3 Reasons why your hair’s losing its volume:

1.     External Damage: UV rays, straighteners, perms, coloring, … No matter how much you protect your hair, each strand gets weaker with time.

2.     Blood Circulation: When you have bad circulation in your body, the proper nutrition never reaches you hair leading to all kinds of problems. Blood circulation is usually caused by bad eating habits, lack of sleep, stress and smoking.

3.     Lack of estrogen: Estrogen is a hormone that helps strengthen and thicken your hair. With age, estrogen slowly starts to decrease making your hair weaker.


So, what should you do?

3 ways to bring back volume:

1.     Stimulate blood circulation: Try massaging your scalp when you wash your hair. Take your 5 fingers and slowly push down on your scalp a couple of times. This easy trick will promote blood circulation — and it feels amazing.

2.     Choose the right shampoo
Sulfates are overly harsh detergents that ultimately damage your hair in the long run. Sulfates go by the names of Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). Avoid them. These chemicals are too strong for your hair stripping essential oils your hair needs to stay healthy. It also breaks down protein and may lead to the prevention of hair growth. We recommend going for the amino acid shampoos which are gentler on your scalp. Come to our salon and we’ve got a whole line of hair products beneficial for hair volume.

3.     Blow dry your hair
Avoid air drying your hair. This welcomes bacteria in your hair. After you get out of the shower, make sure you dry your hair thoroughly with a towel and dryer. When blow drying, apply the air in the opposite direction of where your hair’s growing. Once your hair is dry, bring it back to its natural direction — a little hack to create volume and shine.
