Stylist Spotlight: The Savvy Smooth Professional

Travis.jpg

Travis

Travis has been in the hair industry for over 20 years and is a precision cutter and seasoned colorist. However, his favorite (and most frequent) service that he provides at Citrine is the Goldwell Kerasilk Smoothing treatment. Fortified with silk proteins and jojoba oil, the Goldwell Keratin Kerasilk treatment smooths out the hair cuticle; leaving soft, shiny and manageable hair with little to no effort. 

This smoothing treatment lasts 3-5 months (depending on lifestyle). We asked Travis which products he would recommend to help maintain the treatment at home. "My favorite products are the Goldwell Kerasilk Control shampoo combined with the Control smoothing mask as your conditioner. When combined, these two products help reinforce the Kerasilk treatment and also help it last longer as these products have actual Keratin in them."

Travis understands how hard it can be to have coarse, or unruly hair and strongly trusts in the Kerasilk system. With year round frizz management, the Smoothing treatment is ideal for the high humidity North Carolina summer months.

Just in Time For Summer: Bb's NEW Don't Blow It!

Sometimes achieving that effortless, air-dried hair style can be easier said than done. As the trend for natural and low-maintenance hair styling continues to become more popular, finding the right method to style hair without all the work can be challenging. We all want to have great hair, but don't want to put in the work for it, right? And why use heat and product just to make it look like you didn't use heat and product? If the effortless 'do is what you're going for, it should go without saying that little to no effort is required. So what can you do to decrease the time spent getting the perfect style?

Bumble and bumble released Don't Blow It in 2014- made specifically for fine hair in need of texture and body. This styling creme is super versatile- meant to be worked into towel-dried hair and styled whichever way you like. Scrunch your hair, twist in some curls, or work your fingers through for easy texture and lots of body.

Three years later, Bumble invents Don't Blow It for thick hair, and the hair gods rejoice. Arriving at Citrine just in time for summer, Don't Blow It will give your blow dryer a rest for the summer season. Made for medium to thick hair, Don't Blow It conditions hair while reducing frizz. Giving you the perfect amount of control, Don't Blow It refines and defines with little effort. Work a small amount from mid-shaft of the hair to the ends. Let air-dry, and go!

Seriously, though, could getting the perfect style be any easier?

Give your blow dryer a break this summer! Stop in to give Don't Blow It a try. Both cremes offer UV protection- perfect for the days spent outside in the sun. These lightweight stylers are ideal for summer- great hair days with no heat or hassle.


April is Beauty Sustainability Month!

Citrine was founded on sustainable and eco-friendly principles back in 2009. We love the planet we call home!, and we do everything we can to reduce our impact on the environment. Our location here at East 54 in Chapel Hill is an environmentally-friendly LEED certified development. The salon relies on low-energy lighting and tons of natural sunlight. We follow procedures that involve all earth-friendly cleaning products, maintain a completely paperless booking and transaction system, and recycle goods and waste wherever and whenever we can. We believe that living a green lifestyle does not have to entail going without!

Aside from the larger measures taken to reduce our carbon footprint, we wondered what else we could do to promote an eco-friendly hair regimen and lifestyle. What ways could our staff and clientele take advantage of the perks of sustainable beauty? After all, it is the smaller, more gradual changes in life that have substantial, lasting impacts.

We are a proud carrier of Davines hair and Comfort Zone skincare products. Davines (and Comfort Zone) is an Italian-based hair care brand focusing on customized hair products that are eco-friendly in as many ways possible. The unique packaging Davines has designed is a case in point! Their shampoo and conditioner containers are reusable, and serve multiple purposes other than holding your favorite hair product.

These containers are produced using as little already-recycled plastic as possible! After the product inside is gone, and the container is cleaned, it is food-safe! A popular use for conditioner containers is to store and carry food and snacks.

Our personal favorite use of these empty Davines containers is repurposing them as planters. They serve as the perfect sized planter for smaller seedlings and plants. Our succulents here at the salon have a great home in their repurposed conditioner containers and are thriving!

Not all of us have a green thumb, though. For those that still love the sustainable concept of Davines, we're offering a promotion when you bring in your clean (full size!) shampoo and conditioner containers. We'll refill your product and top it off with a 10% discount. It's just another way to achieve beautiful hair in the most sustainable way possible.

If you love a Davines shampoo and/or conditioner, also consider ordering a liter size of your favorite product. Shopping in bulk greatly reduces the amount of waste created, and you save money! We can order many of our best-selling Davines products in larger sizes, and they're shipped to us immediately.

Often times, it's the small efforts and changes we make in our day-to-day lives that have the biggest impact. Striking a balance between beauty and sustainability can be challenging, but the results improve our lives and the world around us. As we celebrate Beauty Sustainability Month and Earth Day in April, consider what ways you can reduce your impact on the planet and how your health and beauty habits affect yourself and the world we live in.

Stop in this month to check out our Davines line and get inspiration on how you can be sustainably beautiful!


An Exciting Addition to the Bb Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Family

We've fallen in love with Bumble and bumble's Hairdresser's Invisible Oil line here at the salon. Not only are we seeing great results from the shampoo and conditioner, but the balm-to-oil masque and invisible oil spray are getting some of our clients through these dry winter months. For others, frizz and dehydration are always a concern, no matter what time of year. For those of us with dry to very dry hair types, continually stripping the hair of natural oils can result in a style that makes for more maintenance and trouble, not to mention the risk of damage and breakage. And it can be hard to find a shampoo that cleans the hair but is gentle enough to retain moisture. Regardless of the weather and outside influences, dull and frizzy hair is no fun anyway!

Bumble and bumble is introducing a new addition to the Hairdresser's family, and it's sure to be a hit among the salon and our clients. The Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Cleansing Oil-Creme Duo is meant to be used in conjunction with the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil shampoo and conditioner. Use it in place of your Hairdresser's shampoo every other day, and follow with the Hairdresser's conditioner like you normally would. It's that easy.

One of our favorite things about this new Bumble product is (like always) the packaging! A low-foam cleanser and luxurious moisturizing creme housed in dual-chambers combine to gently eliminate dirt and build-up while preserving your hair's natural oils.

Like the rest of the Hairdresser's products, the Cleansing Oil-Creme Duo contains six signature oils that deeply moisturize and condition all hair types. Over time, the added moisture will further silken and protect your tresses. It's a simple addition to your regular washing routine, but with all the extra benefits you never knew you needed!

Bumble and bumble has outdone themselves again!

Welcome the two new additions to the Sumo family: Sumoclay and Sumogel!

Sumoclay solves your limp, dull hair problems in one little jar! It is a light weight styling product that adds texture, definition, and bulk. It should be applied on dry hair only as it adds shape and detail. This product is ideal for all hair types, including fine-to-medium hair to add body and texture.

Sumogel eliminates the flaky 90s gel style! This styling product is a crystal clear, solid gel that does not crunch or flake. Giving your hair that natural shine and clean finish it deserves! Sumogel is best used on wet hair and combed into place. With its innovative Micro-Emulsion Structure technology, you get that shine without any heavy silicones!


Facing your winter travel

 How do you keep your hair and skin looking and feeling amazing, even with the drying winter air and the freezing temperatures? HYDRATION is key! Lack of moisture is one of the main reasons that our hair looks brittle and frizzy, and that our skin looks cracked and peeling. But don't worry - we've got the products and tips  you for the absolute best, hydrated hair and skin possible.

Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser's Balm-to-Oil Pre-Shampoo Masque

A highly concentrated balm-to-oil weekly masque that you apply to dry hair before you shampoo, to provide parched hair with an extra dose of moisture.

Tip - Scoop out the product and warm it between your hands to melt, and apply evenly to dry hair. Dry hair tends to absorb moisture better than wet, so apply this masque about 20 minutes before you hop into the shower for maximum effect.

Bumble & Bumble Quenching Shampoo and Conditioner -

This mild, hydrating shampoo and conditioner helps replenish dry and damaged hair.

Tip - After shampooing thoroughly, condition and let sit for 1-3 minutes. This gives the conditioner time to work its magic!

Patchology Hydrating Flash Masque -

The innovative masque material used in the Patchology Hydrating Flash Masque delivers Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin B5 much faster than traditional sheet masques. in about 5 minutes, you can have the mega moisture boost that your dry winter skin has been craving.

Tip- After removing the sheet masque, don't rinse off the extra serum left over. Let it fully absorb into your skin, to leave you feeling hydrated and refreshed for hours to come.


Christmas 2016 Stocking Stuffers!

Clean Sweeping at Citrine Salon

   

Clean Sweeping is a highly effective exfoliation treatment performed on the face to remove dead skin and fine vellus (peach fuzz) hair. Our esthetician Bhavna is highly experienced with Clean Sweeping facial procedures and strives to help her clients achieve glowing, radiant skin at any age!

Below are some FAQ's about Clean Sweeping answered by Bhavna.

How does Clean Sweeping work?

Clean Sweeping is a safe, non-invasive treatment that uses a sterile blade held at a forty five degree angle. Working in small sections, skin is kept taut as the blade lightly "shaves" off dead skin, revealing the new glowing skin underneath. Since the esthetician is manually performing the facial, clients can see exactly the amount of dead skin cells that are being removed, as well as focus on areas of the face where there may be more build up of skin.

What does it feel like?

Clean Sweeping is a painless procedure that is overall very comfortable- a very light scrubbing sensation can be felt as the esthetician treats the skin in small areas at a time.

What are the benefits of Clean Sweeping?

-Promotes smoother skin and a clean canvas for makeup to be applied.

-Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil -Enhances other skincare treatments such as chemical peels and provides deeper product penetration -Reduces recent acne scars -Reduces fine lines -Produces immediate results with zero downtime

Are there any risks?

There are no side effects and zero downtime associated with the Clean Sweeping facial. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink shortly after. We ask that you wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyper pigmentation.

What skin types/conditions are ideal for Clean Sweeping?

All skin types may benefit from Clean Sweeping. It is especially effective on those with a dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Clean Sweeping is safe for pregnant clients who cannot have chemical peels (peels penetrate the skin at a cellular level, thus are contraindicated.)

Who should avoid Clean Sweeping?

Clients with very oil or have active acne should avoid this procedure. Sebaceous glands excrete oil along the vellus hair. If the hair is removed, the oil may cause bacteria growth that can stimulate acne breakouts. Once a breakout has cleared, it is safe to perform the facial.

How often should the procedure be performed?

For best results, Clean Sweeping is usually performed every three to four weeks. Treating the skin in this manner removes about 21 days worth of dead skin cells. The skin needs to complete its normal rejuvenation cycle before the facial is performed again. With regular procedures, you'll notice a major transformation in the appearance and overall health of your skin.

If the hair on the face is removed, is it going to grow back darker or thicker?

No. This is physiologically impossible. Vellus or "peach fuzz" hair when cut or removed will grow back the same size, shape, texture, and color. Therefore, the main structure of the Vellus hair does not change nor is it altered during Clean Sweeping. Terminal hair however, is coarse. When this type of hair is cut or removed it will always grow back coarse.

How long does it take to achieve results?

Clean Sweeping instantly leaves the skin looking smooth, radiant and glowing. This is an ideal facial for a date or an event where you want to look your best immediately and don't want to wait days for results as compared to other facial treatments.

How do I know if Clean Sweeping is right for me?

We offer complimentary consultations that include a personalized skin assessment and treatment plan to get you the best results possible!

 

Schedule a consultation with Bhavna today and see if Clean Sweeping is right for you!

Bb hairdressers dry oil finish spray #sublimesuperpowers

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Dry Oil Finishing Spray & Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Balm-to-Oil Pre-Shampoo masque

The newest additions to the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Family!

Bb invisible oil family

 

Delivering instant shine and softness without weighing your hair down, the new Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Dry Oil Finishing Spray! Perfect for going out in the sun, with a built-in UV protectant, so your hair stays healthy.

You can take it anywhere and use it for days without build up. Just shake well and spray mid strands to end, and comb through with your fingers or comb. It's just that simple!

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser's Dry Oil Finishing Spray also tames frizz, while conditioning your hair. This lightweight mist is formulated for hair that needs extra moisture and shine.

Bboilfinishingspray

Bb's Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Balm-to-Oil Pre-Shampoo masque is a silky cream that liquefies in your hands before applying to dry hair. It is key to warm the product up before putting the masque on! It's at this time that Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Safflower Seed Oil, and Grapeseed Oil are activated, and will make your strands softer and smoother!

Because hair is more absorbent when it is dry, leaving the masque in for 20 minutes is important. After washing out, we recommend to follow up with the Hairdresser's Invisible Oil Sulfate Free Shampoo and Conditioner. Best of all, the pre-shampoo masque is safe to use weekly, and will keep your hair soft and shiny.

Patchology is a patented transdermal patch made more awesome with the addition of micro-current technology for more effective ingredient delivery. It's like a "recharging station" for your eyes. Patchology's micro-current technology gently pushes more of the latest cosmeceutical ingredients right to where your skin needs them most for a targeted boost of revitalization and renewal.

The delicate eye skin gets a major plumping boost from Hyaluronic Acid (see previous esthetics education post for more on HA), while Okra Plant Peptide calms, soothes, and tightens the skin. Cucumber and Mint soothe the puffiness away, and Vitamins C, B3, and B5 work on free radicals to slow the signs of aging.

"As we all know weak, and brittle strands do not make for a great 'do. Flawless styling requires a strong foundation. With full, more resilient hair you can part, swoosh, sweep and pin as you like- without stressing over hair loss" - Bumble & Bumble

Bumble & Bumble has introduced three new products this season:  Hair preserving shampoo, hair preserving conditioner and hair preserving booster spray.

The Hair Preserving Shampoo is great for anyone that is looking for fuller, stronger hair, especially those prone to breakage and thinning. This shampoo acts as a bandage to promote strength and elasticity.

The Hair Preserving Conditioner is lightweight and nourishing. It instantly reinforces strands, making your hair feel plumper and healthier. The key ingredients in this powerhouse of a conditioner include energizing creatine, and invigorating menthol that offers a cool, tingling sensation.

The Preserving Booster Spray starts at the scalp and acts as non-physical exfoliant (just meaning that it exfoliates without leaving any annoying grit behind in your hair!). It helps take away sebum residue and other debris to leave a clean scalp behind and gives strands an optimal environment to thrive. This spray is a highly potent restorative spray that reduces breakage by 46%. You are guaranteed to see results in as little as four weeks.

I don't know about anyone else, but this product sounds awesome to us here at the salon. Being able to have fuller and healthier hair just by using these three items! It sounds so simple who wouldn't want to try it?! I personally have fine, damaged hair and I have noticed a significant difference in my hair after using these 3 products.
