Meet Darian, Our first junior stylist!

5F2AC39B-C49B-441F-94B5-7D292BBDE39C.JPG

We're so excited to introduce you to our first Junior Stylist, Darian! Originally from Christianburg, Virginia, Darian took an interest in cosmetology and hair at a young age. Fortunately, her enthusiasm for the craft was able to be nurtured during her teenage years, as she completed a cosmetology program that was offered at her high school.

Upon graduating, Darian attended Randolph College. Though she pursued a degree in Psychology, her love for cosmetology continued as she would perform styles on her hair, as well as her friends.

After college Darian moved to Raleigh, NC, where she knew she wanted to join the team of a busy and dynamic hair salon. Just two months into her time in North Carolina, she applied to Citrine and gained a position as an Assistant. Soon after starting, our team saw great potential in Darian, offering her the opportunity to become our very first Apprentice and Junior Stylist. Now, the rest is history! 

So, we asked Darian what's the best part of working at Citrine and learning from our Master Stylists? "Their knowledge of so many different aspects of hair," she says, "and even though everyone is great at so many different things, it's been nice to see each stylist's special niche." She also says that everyone has been very helpful and welcoming. "They always make themselves available for any questions I have, even in the midst of their crazy schedules!" 

Her favorite technique that she's learned thus far? "Balayage. Chhalin's balyage's are works of art!"

Though she's been a member of our team for nearly one year, we're excited to see Darian's progress and continued growth as a stylist. "I'm looking forward to becoming more creative and helping clients feel beautiful from the inside out." 

Be sure to call or email us to schedule your future appointment with Darian, and scroll below to learn three fun facts about her!

The 2018 Sustainable Beauty Month goal aims to plant 5,000 fruit trees in the remote Loreto region of Peru. These trees will serve as a stable source of food and income for over 350 families living in the region. We can't think of anything more rewarding than knowing our efforts here will directly impact these families for years to come. So, how does Citrine plan to contribute to the tree planting effort in this impoverished region of Peru?

This month, we're celebrating the arrival of Spring and Earth Day by partnering with Davines as part of their annual Beauty Sustainability Month! Every year the Italian hair care line, Davines, confronts a challenge experienced by the less fortunate living on this beautiful planet. We look forward to joining Davines in contributing to global and environmental affairs, as we all know that even the smallest of efforts create noticeable change. 

Beauty Sustainability Month is a unique movement, as Davines and salons join forces in a cross-section between business and the environment we live in and love. This year, Citrine Salon will be assisting Davines in their mission with the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation.

This month, we will be holding a raffle for a gift basket filled with some of the best-selling Davines hair and body care products. With the purchase of a 5 dollar ticket, your name will be entered into the drawing for a gift basket worth more than 75 dollars! 

All proceeds will go directly to the Fruit Tree Planting Foundation at the end of the month. At that time, we will draw a name as well. Stop in this April for more information or to purchase a ticket, or simply follow the link below to donate. Happy Sustainable Beauty Month!

So, how does Scalp Detox work? As you section your hair, simply dispense the product into your scalp. Then, use your fingers to massage it into the roots of your hair. It's mix of Micellar Water (to cleanse), Salicylic Acid (to remove pore-clogging debris), and Pathenol (to prevent dry-out) all create a tingling sensation that leaves your scalp feeling healthy and refreshed. Apply it weekly to refresh your scalp, or just to enjoy the tingly microbubbles.

Transform Your Hair with Davines

Did you know Citrine Salon is a proud carrier of the Italian hair care line, Davines?

Davines was established in 1983 by the Bollati family, being founded as a small hair care research lab based in Parma, Italy. Taking a scientific approach to hair and beauty, they've created unique and innovative hair care formulations. After a decade of honing their skills, the family formed the Davines brand we know and love today.

The Bollati family founded Davines on high standards of sustainability, paying special attention to their craft and it's impact on the environment. Today, Davines constantly innovates their products and releases new concepts, keeping us inspired and curious about the limits of hair and design. All Davines products are still produced in Parma, and are exported internationally, creating a distinctive brand culture and lifestyle

Although Davines carries hair care and styling products for every hair type and condition, the Oi line has received some of the most love and attention from our staff and clients- and for good reason!

Ideal for daily use as part of a beauty routine, the Oi shampoo, conditioner, and styling products impart intense shine and hydration on hair, without weighing it down. Hair is left feeling extraordinarily soft, fragrant, and voluminous, resulting in easy maintenance and styling. 

A key ingredient that sets Oi apart is Roucou oil, derived from the Annatto plant. Originating from the Amazon, Roucou oil has the unique ability to restructure hair and provide protection against sun exposure and environmental damage. It is abundant in beta-carotene, ellagic acid, and antioxidants, which provide free radical-neutralizing properties.

Roucou oil's rich abundance of beta carotene makes it ideal for it's use in hair products. It has been shown to increase the production of melanin, which keeps natural and color-treated hair looking its best. Beta carotene is also responsible for fighting frizz and keeping grays at bay, making Oi the ultimate multi-benefit beautifying product. 

The Oi line consists of a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in/detangling milk, and finishing oil. Oi's signature scent is present in each product- a clean-smell that is exotic, yet sophisticated and not overpowering. The Oi line has expanded to include a hand balm, body wash, lotion, and soap! Experience the Oi line's ability to deliver immediate results, regardless of the condition of your hair.

Stop in now and pick up any three Davines Oi products and receive a free Oi Body Kit!

The Latest From Bumble and bumble

This week we're excited to introduce the newest addition to the Bumble and bumble hair care family. We've seen quite a few exciting changes and innovations from Bumble and bumble this past year, and are certain this next installation will not disappoint!

ColorGloss-emailfooter3.jpg

Introducing Bb Color Gloss- five illuminating glazes to instantly boost shine and revive color treated hair. From pink to brown, black to platinum blonde (even white!), Bumble and bumble has crafted an easy color pick-me-up that quickly deposits vivid and dimensional hues to brighten and illuminate any shade of hair. 

Available in brunette, warm blonde, cool blonde, red, and clear, Bumble and bumble's Color Gloss delivers shine and renewed color for up to three washes. Suitable for all hair types, Color Gloss enlivens high lights, low lights, single process colors, and everything in between (yes, this includes any rainbow color, too!). What's better is how easy it is to achieve a fresh color. Simply apply the desired gloss to dry hair and leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse. Follow with your favorite color safe (or any) shampoo and conditioner. That's it! 

We're going to love this product for use in-between color appointments, when color begins to lose its vibrancy and shine. Yellow and brassy tones are instantly neutralized, keeping highlights and lighter tones cool and true. The conditioning effect of Color Gloss will add luster and dimension to your locks, creating all the shine you'll ever want!

Address Winter Skin with Eminence

As the days grow shorter and the air colder, many of us will find our skin feeling dry and itchy. This past week, we were met with a blast of cold air and winter weather, plunging temperatures well down below freezing. An added wind chill makes any journey outdoors a brutal one! 

Exposure to the cold is inevitable, as are the effects of winter air on your skin. Less moisture means drier skin for many, which leads to itchiness and irritation. When skin loses moisture, it overcompensates by producing more oil, which can sometimes result in break outs and a tired, dull appearance. Combat winter dryness this year and restore your skin back to a healthy, glowing complexion by enhancing your skin care routine with the following products specially formulated by Eminence Organic Skin Care. 

37878.jpg

It seems like no matter how much you moisturize, the coldness has a way of stripping away any remaining hydration in your skin. It's for this reason that Eminence's Facial Recovery Oil is our go-to product this month. This stuff is liquid gold- suitable for all skin types, two small drops work wonders in reviving tired and aged skin.

This top-selling lightweight organic oil deeply nourishes and hydrates skin, restoring moisture and balancing the skin's overall complexion. Olive, Clary Sage, Ylang Ylang, Tea Tree, and Sesame oil contain calming and anti-inflammatory properties, leaving skin smooth and soft. Rue and Sage Leaf Extract hold antibacterial properties that soothe the skin and allow for deep hydration. The Facial Recovery Oil "reduces fine lines and wrinkles up to 43% and increases hydration by up to 53% in just 28 days." Treat and heal your skin to a bright and healthy complexion, and say farewell to dry skin this winter season!

We also spoke with our stylists Travis, Heather, and Kelly to learn which additional products they would use to create this style. See their tips below the video!

In addition to the Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-powder, Travis suggests using the Goldwell Intense Smoothing Mask. "It fortifies the hair with keratin, helps hair become easy to blowdry, and it also helps de-frizz hair, creating a smooth texture," he says.

Travis also recommends the use of Davines Personal Assistant Hairspray. This is a brushable, reworkable hairspray which adds a light, steady, flexible hold to the hair. Additionally, he says the Kerasilk Repower Volumizing Spray is great product to use for this style. "It's a volumizer with keratin that gives an instant root lift and also has a built-in heat protectant."  

Heather adds that Bumble and bumble's Thickening DrySpun Finish spray is the perfect way to "create that lived in, airy texture to your hair with instant fullness." Bumble and bumble Dryspun spray gives you the hold and grit needed to have the perfect holiday hairstyle!

Both Heather and Kelly agreed that in order to achieve this look you need a great staple hairspray. The Davines Medium Hairspray is the perfect product to compliment this look. It sets the hair in place while giving it shine and is humidity resistant. It is our best hairspray for workable yet polished looks.
