So what can you expect at our new location? The same fun, comfortable, and professional atmosphere. A color bar out in the open so you can see what we do when we disappear to mix your color. More specialty hair color options as we continue our education. Opportunities to help us with photo shoots! And lots of fun details to make your experience the best it can be.
Where is this new location? Not far! We will be located at 22289 Goddard Road in Taylor. It’s in the new strip mall just off Pardee, acrossed the street from the CVS. Our phone number will stay the same, and we will keep you updated on the date that we will be moving.

Not only was Redken Symposium a lot of fun, but I learned a ton of new color techniques, hair cuts, styling, good business practices, and how to make each clients visit the best it can be! I may not be a Redken user, but they sure can inspire a Stylist! The theme of the event was Obsession, and they challenged each of us to become obsessed with education, this was not a hard concept for me, I am in love with learning anything I possibly can when it comes to hair! I stay up too late almost every night watching videos, reading articles & blogs, searching and pining to my Pinterest page , attending any class or show that I can, and anything else that I possibly can to learn. I love learning as much as I love sharing what I learn. When I am invited into a Salon or store to teach Pravana classes, I am always honored. It's an amazing feeling to see something click in a stylists head. And that feeling that I get, makes it all worth it. That is my obsession.

Getting ready involves putting together head sheets ( yes pretty much what your thinking, outlines of heads with different views so you can draw color & cut techniques), camera charged with lots of memory, comfy shoes, and most important an open mind ready to learn. I'm hoping to come home with great ideas not only for Salon Epiphany, but color techniques and haircuts to step my skills and bring your looks to the next level!
Keep posted for all the new looks and ideas that I'm about to learn!

When a product has been professionally diagnosed for your hairs special needs, by a hair care expert, it is going to be more suited to you than something that you have picked up off the shelf at your local store.
Good quality means nothing, as without expert advice you may not find the right one for you. In fact, you could use one that is not suitable at all. For example, general use or “family shampoo”, won’t treat your partners dandruff, your babies cradle cap and your frizzy ends at the same time! With statistics showing that 80% of us miss diagnose our own hair type and so purchase the wrong products, when left to our own devices, you can see where the difference lies.
A reasonably new marketing strategy of selling you a product that has a specific purpose rather than treats a specific hair type does make life a lot easier. E.g. you want volume then you buy ‘volume’ shampoo rather than ‘fine hair’ shampoo.
As with most things, price is a good indicator of quality when trying to choose a hair care product and applies equally to the products you buy at your salon or the grocery store. Once you reach the upper middle to high price range the ingredients will be of a better quality and contain more of them (e.g. real essential oils rather than the cheap non-pure versions) and on the reverse of the coin, if you buy really cheap brands you will get what you pay for.
Professional brands on the whole use gentler surfactants (a type of soap used in shampoo) in more concentrated amounts, so you need far less product than with a grocery store brand to achieve the same result. The recommended serving of professional shampoo or conditioner is 5 ml per serve (the average cap full) whilst you may have to use three or four times more to get the same result from a cheap grocery store brand. However, the quality of the upper end of the grocery brands iseasily comparable to the lower to mid range of the professional brands so it really is your decision at the end of the day.
Your shampoo and conditioner are the foundation of a good hair style and should not be under valued when creating your look.
A shampoo should always be followed by a conditioner as a shampoo is negatively charged and a conditioner is positively charged, therefore one will balance or neutralize the other helping to restore the natural barrier (acid mantel) and protect the hair.
