Pixie Perfect

Twiggy started it. Mia Farrow embodies it. Demi Moore kept it alive.   And today, plenty of celebrities continue to love it.   The timeless Pixie Cut. Let’s face it, to pull off the Pixie, you have to have confidence, poise and grace, which are all beautiful qualities.

Tempted to give it a try? We recommend you start with a picture you love. Bring it to your FRESH stylist so he or she can understand your vision. If you’re willing to take the leap, remember there are all kinds of Pixie variations.

Fresh Stylists Speak Out on American Wave

1404775219552

Walk into Fresh Salon, and you’re going to see something new, something exciting, and a product that our stylists are calling revolutionary! It’s ARROJO’S American Wave line. And because it’s developed by ARROJO, it’s setting a new gold standard. The line is specially formulated for the care and styling of textured hair. The ingredients are clean and green and the fragrances are fresh.

 

 

Here’s what our stylists are saying:

elixir-wave-2

 

“I like it because there is a product for pretty much every texture!  You can enhance a wave, smooth out a wave, add body, add moisture… the list goes on, said stylist Emily Hamilton.

 

Nikki Prendergast says: “The co-cleanse is awesome!! It helps remove excess oil from the scalp, but helps retain moisture through the ends.”

 

Jen Busch is a fan: “I am obsessed with the American Wave line!  I love it because it is ultra-hydrating. It makes so many textures feel amazing and soft without feeling greasy.  Whether your hair is curly or just in need of moisture, this line is perfect and smells incredible!

Curly Girl – Kaleena Peck

She’s a self-proclaimed “Curly Girl” who grew up styling her sister’s hair and wishing she could figure out how to take care of the untamable curls that baffled even her own parents.

“As a very young girl my parents kept my unruly curls tightly cropped, there was so much, they had no idea how to handle it,” she laughs.

Still, Kaleena was intrigued by hair, makeup and fashion. “I wanted to be able to understand how to take care of my own hair,” she says. That desire landed her in Cosmetology school, at Rowan Cabarrus Cosmetology. She worked as a hospital CT Technician’s Assistant to help pay the bills, and graduated in less than a year. Soon after, she found her home with FRESH owners Julia and Jason Vittorio.

There would be jobs in between her work with FRESH, even some time working at a restaurant in St Lucia where she gained an appreciation for customer service and learned what it takes to run a business behind the scenes.

Kaleena calls her father her inspiration and defines him as a go-getter, and supportive role model; the kind of guy who would drop anything to help a friend in need. It only makes sense that that kind of role model moved her to become the perfect manager of a busy, popular salon. Coupled with her own unique style and flair, she’s the heart of FRESH and a friend to all.

“My best day at the salon is when everyone is pumped and excited to be at work. And I love when we come together and develop a new concept for a cut and color combination for a photo shoot.”

To say that Kaleena is loved and appreciated would be an understatement. As client Nancy Biggs says “She will always make you smile.”

And we think Kaleena’s big news will make you smile as well. This amazing woman will soon be a mom! She and her husband Jeremy are expecting their first baby, a girl, on May 17th. And although you never know who a baby will favor, we have a feeling she’ll be a Curly Girl!

Hydro Mist

Winter is coming to an end, but your hair may have the ill effects for months after you pack up that cashmere sweater and suede boots. It’s common to have dry, stressed hair during cold, winter months, and unfortunately we see too many clients who complain that those brittle stands make styling nearly impossible.

That’s why we love Hyro Mist, by ARROJO. This simple spray makes styling easy. The hydroplex and glycerin seal in moisture and leave your hair feeling clean and hydrated. What’s even better is the smooth, soft look your hair will have after treating it with this one-of-a-kind product.

Here’s how to use it:

  • Spray Hydro Mist on damp hair
  • Work it into your ends by using your hands
  • Use your additional styling products and tools
  • Enjoy your great look!

Spring is coming, so be ready for it, with smooth, pliable hair!

Meet our newest Assistant – Chelsea Breann

She’s been everywhere! Chelsea Breann grew up in a military family. The proud daughter of a Marine, Chelsea lived all over the world from Japan to Peru to Indiana. Along the way, and through the miles, Chelsea learned to love and be inspired by fashion.

“For as long as I can remember, I’ve found trends to be exciting. I’ve worked with every color imaginable and love researching about new ways to produce great results.” She’s not sure of the exact moment that it all clicked, but Chelsea believes she was “meant to be a colorist!”

 

She worked hard to get to the place she is now, but admits: “I would have never pushed myself as far as I have if it weren’t for my family and friends.”

Today, this Empire Beauty School graduate, is a FRESH color assistant. It’s the perfect job for an artist who loves trends and creating new looks for clients who want something different. Her favorite color trends includes bayalage (hair painting) and she loves helping clients who want that “out-of-the box” look.

A perfect day at FRESH is when a client leaves with a smile on their face.

“It’s all I could ever ask for,” she says
