Summer Loving…. Highlights

There’s something about summer that makes us want to brighten up.  And the good news is that you don’t have to change your hair color to get a boost.  After a cold winter and rainy spring, why not add highlights to frame your face or add interest to your length?

The Shag

 

It’s back! The Shag: the haircut you have to try at least once in your life! By all accounts, the Shag is young, modern and hip. It’s easy to maintain and with little effort you can style to perfection, which is why we love it here at Fresh!

These are our favorites for long and short hair!

 

Long Shag:

Determined to keep your long locks and still have an edge? The trendy long shag is stylish and fun. By removing a little bulk and volume, you can obtain a great look that is sure to turn heads. We think feathering the top and sides and going for a messy, tousled look is super cool!

 

 

Short Shag:

2017 is the year of the shag. And you don’t need long hair to be a part of the trend.   Short shags require texture, and more and more clients want to give this trend a try as summer approaches. One key is making sure your hair is shiny and clean. Try ARROJO’s Shine Luxe Oil that fights frizz and adds control and luster. This product will make your shag sparkle!

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.

The Wedge:

This is a cut where the top and sides are longer, which add volume. The look is classic and gorgeous!

Classic:

Do you want to enhance your beautiful bone structure? The Classic Pixie will do just that. And if you’re going for this, why not try a striking hair color too. Blonde, silver or red? Go for it.

Pixie Bob:

Worried about whether you’ll love the Pixie forever? No problem. The Pixie Bob allows you to transition from this iconic cut to a longer style.   You’ll have lots of movement in your hair when you allow the front to remain a bit longer and keep the back stacked.

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!
