Introducing Amika, our newest product line!

Introducing Amika!  This is a new product line for our salon.  We are loving it!  The fragrance, the way your hair feels and the packaging is all perfection!

 

Amika is brand new for us! They are unlike any other product I’ve tried. They smell amazing! The electricians working in the space next to our salon actually stopped me to ask what the amazing smell was from!

The shampoos and conditioners make your hair perfectly nourished and full of body. My hair is fine and can easily feel weighed down. With the first try of shampoo and conditioner my hair felt great for days!

They’ve been around since 2007. They do not try to attain perfection with hair. They want your hair to be as individual as you while being super healthy.

Positivity is their main focus and their packaging delivers “puddles of fun and has a sunny disposition.”

Their main focus is to deliver protection from heated styling products. https://loveamika.com  Check out their website for a full list of products.

Their number one best seller is their Perk Up Dry Shampoo. It’s very light and has their signature fragrance.  The smell comes from Buckthorn Berry. It’s a super fruit and it’s included in most of the products. They also have Silken Up Dry Conditioner! It’s nice if your ends are super dry and great if your hair is curly and needs a little extra boost of moisture.

Amika products are vegetarian-friendly, cruelty-free and free from sulfates, MIT, MCI, Phthalates and artificial colors.

Amika never has and never will conduct animal testing. They test it on themselves, their friends, anyone and everyone we can get our hands on! They test on people, not animals.

They have lots of blow-drying products to give you the biggest, long lasting blowout ever! The Wizard is fabulous! It gives just the right amount of shine and hold.  It doesn’t feel like there is anything in your hair at all!

We are offering buy 2 products and get one free! It’s a great way to try them! Or you come in for a blowout and try them.

 

New Salon Will Open on December 1st

Our new salon will open on December 1st!

After waiting patiently, we will be ready to start doing hair on Friday, December 1st!

We have been in City View Apartments for a long time. We are happy to say that we are expanding and moving to Nova Place!  http://novaplace.com/about-nova-place/

Nova Place is an amazing development of businesses and restaurants. We are so happy to be included in their list of services.

Check out our previous blog post, it explains the directions and parking.

The salon will be almost twice the size of our current space! We’ve needed more room to spread out so we don’t keep bumping into each other!

Not only will the salon be better but we are continually learning about new techniques and products so we can be better.  We want to you to be thrilled with your hair, whether it’s a cut or some fancy balayaged ends!

Framesi is our color line and their shades are truly beautiful. The shine and condition of the hair is remarkable.  The CHI color line is our non ammonia color and is best for people who are sensitive to other color lines.

We will soon be introducing a new product line of hair care that you can take home! We are also expanding our existing lines so there will be choices for everyone!

We are planning a grand opening cocktail party on Thursday, December 7th!  It’s from 4-8pm. We’ll have some wine, food, guitar music from Ben Sherman and lots of samples and free gifts!

We are so excited to open the new salon, we can’t wait to show everyone.

Don’t forget! We open December 1st in our new location. Keep checking Facebook and our Website for other news.  Our phone number will be the same 412 471 9122. Please call or email us if you have any questions!

 

Our salon is relocating!

We’re getting ready for our salon relocating to NOVA Place!  http://novaplace.com/

You may have heard us talking about relocating the salon. 🙂 Well…it’s finally happening! I’ve been in our current location for a long, long time, it’s been so hard to think about leaving. But now, the salon has grown so much over the past 2 years that we are in need of more room and the salon could use a makeover! I’m thrilled that we are able to expand and be included in such a growing part of the city.

The above map I took from one of our new neighbors La Prima Espresso Co.  https://laprima.com/   They are inside NOVA Place and have the best coffee ever! This map is on their business card and shows the layout of the area. We are the larger dot on the left or west side of the map. Thank you to La Prima for the map!

Let me tell you a few things about where we are going. NOVA Place is on the North Shore. It used to be Allegheny Center Mall. Old and new companies are thriving in this setting. We are thrilled to be included in such a vibrant community. It will be great to be in such a busy place where people live and work.

Our new address is 100 S Commons Suite 119 zip code 15212

Even though we are relocating, our phone number will be the same. 412 471 9122.

As soon as we have a confirmed date, we will start posting that everywhere! Many things have to happen still in order for us to be ready for business. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that it will be before the end of the year. I’ve been patient for this long, I can wait a little longer if we need to.

NOVA Place is a large rectangle building and is divided into the West Side, Center and East Side. The salon is on the West side of the bldg outside near the Children’s Museum and Aviary.

There are 3 levels of parking available under the bldg. There are Visitor Entrances on our 4 sides of the bldg. The 4 sides are S Commons, E Commons, N Commons and W Commons. Now it is a one way street all the way around. Eventually it will be 2 way traffic with a bike lane. There are more parking spaces added around the square on the street.

The salon is on the Plaza Level, West side. The elevators are in the middle or Central part of the parking levels. Take the elevator up to the Plaza level and turn left toward PNC Bank. Walk all the way to PNC Bank and exit the bldg on the right. The salon is just outside these doors.

You can access the salon from the outside as well if you happen to park on the street. The street parking is $1 per hour and free after 6pm.

Children’s Way is a side street within the square and leads to the Children’s Museum. That street has a set of stairs that lead right up to the salon.

We’ll have more info to come as the opening gets closer! 🙂 We hope to see you in our new, beautiful salon!

 

Lice don’t belong in your home!

Lice don’t belong in your home! I don’t even want to put a picture of them here!  Lice are the size of a sesame seed and cling to the base of the hair at the scalp. They produce a sticky substance that just can’t be shampooed away. Kids will itch and scratch if they are infected.

It’s that time of year and if you have kids in school you know all about lice.  My good friend has 3 kids in elementary school. Throughout the year she will get emails from the school that there has been a case of lice and she should check her kids. She knows that prevention is better that trying to get rid of them once they are in your home.

Joanna told me about Fairy Tales products.  You can order them on Amazon or get them at Target and other stores like that.  If you have kids in school, you need to add this to your morning routine! Fairy Tales products have rosemary as an ingredient and it’s a natural repellent. There is a shampoo and a conditioner.  The leave-in conditioner can be sprayed on their dry hair in the morning before they go to school as an extra line of defense!

Lice crawl and can spread to everything.  They do not hop or fly. I always get a little itchy just talking about it!  🙂   Bedding, clothing, stuffed animals, coats, and even your furniture must be thoroughly cleaned.

This is the treatment once you notice that lice are living on the hair strands of your kids. There is a special comb that helps remove the lice and their eggs. Treatments are easy to use.  It’s always best to have them on hand so you can attack this problem right away!
