Beauty Sustainability Month At Citrine

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!

Oi All In One Milk

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.

Getting the Most Out of Your Hair Appointment

 

Whether you're new to the area or you've been thinking about a fresh new 'do, the idea of changing salons or your usual hair routine can be daunting. The goal, of course, is to have a color and style that perfectly suits your style and aesthetic; however, getting to that point is often easier said than done. We want to share a few of our favorite tips to make sure you leave the salon feeling happy and looking your best after your next appointment.

 

If you're completely new to the area, you've probably been browsing online for salons near you, reading reviews, and perusing social media photos. This is a great place to start! In order to ensure that you've chosen the right salon to deliver your ideal results, we absolutely recommend conducting your own research and finding a location that suits your needs.

 

Even if you're not necessarily in a new location but are looking to try something new, online research is still a great place to begin. This brings us to our next tip: finding pictures or any other visual inspiration is a great way to communicate ideas to your hairstylist.

 

Some clients come in knowing exactly what they want, while others might need a little guidance. Either way, we are here to help! Consider booking a consultation before the day of your scheduled service, so you can meet and talk to your stylist about what it is exactly that you have in mind. This prevents any miscommunication and ensures that you’ve made the right choice. We offer 15-minute complimentary consultations, and always suggest booking one if you’re ever unsure.

 

At your consultation, make sure you are honest with your stylist and speak up about any concerns you might have. For example, if you never get blowdrys but your stylist suggests doing one, voice your preference! At the same time, come to the salon that day with an open mind. Stylists are trained to know what looks good on people, so trusting them and doing something a bit out of the ordinary might pleasantly surprise you.

 

Once you decide on the perfect cut and color, make sure to hold off on washing your hair before your appointment. Freshly shampooed hair can be harder to section and apply color, and your stylist will likely want to cut your hair wet in order to style it.

 

Following any of these steps is a sure way to ensuring a positive, fulfilling salon experience. We want you to be happy with your hair and confident that your stylist can help you achieve exactly what you want. Citrine Salon requires that all stylists have more than 6 years of experience in the industry. We do not work under a tier system, as all hairdressers are master stylists. Your happiness and satisfaction is our top priority- please don’t hesitate to stop in and check out our space and schedule an appointment!

 

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!

Davines Introduces Essential Haircare Line

Davines Minu
Davines Minu

February is a boring time of year - the holidays are over and spring has not yet started to peep through the gray and dreary winter weather.  This year though, Davines has brought us something to get excited about during the mid-winter doldrums - their new Essential Haircare Line.

From Davines:

"The reborn line is a combination of the scientific commitment of Davines' laboratories and protection of the Mediterranean's artisan and cultural heritage, with optimal formulas free from sulphates and parabens, and with just added touch of selected active ingredients grown in Italy that contribute to keeping alive vegetable species at risk of extinction so to protect the biological diversity."

New products are always exciting but even better, Davines has partnered with non-profit Slow Food Foundation for Biodiversity through the Presidia Project.  In other words, your hair product addiction is really a contribution to the protection and preservation of biodiversity! Plus, the packaging of the Essential Haircare range is Zero Impact - carbon neutral and is created using the minimum amount of food grade plastics necessary.

All carbon dioxide emissions generated by the production of the containers are offset through contributions to the creation and protection of forests in Madagascar.  So, even if you are buying an aerosol hairspray, Davines is balancing your use of the product by making a donation.

There are nine products families in the new Essential Haircare line.  Many of the families are familiar but revamped to be better for your hair and the environment including the NouNou, DeDe, MoMo, Love (both Curl Enhancing and Smoothing), Melu, Volu, and Oi.

PLUS - the newest addition to the Davines family, the Minu shampoo, conditioner, hair mask, and serum formulated specifically for color-treated hair.  Minu has been wildly popular since we put it on our shelves because of its sulfate and paraben free formula and clean citrusy scent.

Stop by Citrine Salon and pick up some of Davines's newest products and feel good about your contribution to sustainable beauty!

A Quick Color Consult

Some of us like colors that might not actually be flattering...(and some of our girlfriends won't let us know!!) When choosing a hair color, it's important to consider these three things:

  1. Your natural hair color
  2. Your skin tone
  3. Your eye color

At Citrine Salon, our stylists are trained to know exactly what satisfies those three important things and most importantly what you want!

We know that some clients like to pick out pictures before a consultation (and that's perfectly fine - we like to know where you want and hope to go with your color! We're very visual people!) When tearing those magazine pictures out, keep these key points in mind:

  • Most hair colors flatter PALE skin tones! (Just like most haircuts flatter most oval face shapes!)
  • Avoid shades of golden blonde or red if your skin is pink. Golden blondes and reds are warm. Pinks are cool. You'll want to stick with ash tones to remain neutral or you won't balance out!
  • Avoid gold, orange or yellow tones if your skin is yellow. Stick with the deep red family.
  • Lately we've been seeing lots of dark hair coloring on the red carpet - but its best on our olive skin girls!

If you're fashionable and know what color to select that looks good on you, chances are you're on the right track to picking the right hair color....

  • If you look good in red, orange, golden yellow, olive green or rust: You suit warm hair tones! Think any of the goldens...
  • If you look good in bluish red, fuscia, black, royal blue or pine green: You are totally COOL! Think platinum, ashy brown, a cool jet black and for those daring ladies - a burgundy!
  • If you look good in red, purple, charcoal grey, periwinkle or teal: You have remained neutral! Think sandy blondes and chocolate brunettes! And for those sultry women - mahogany is hot, hot, hot!!!

Schedule a consult and color appointment with your top colorist today! Mention this quick blog consult and receive a complimentary shine and color locking treatment!
