Ions make hair shinier, smoother, softer, easier to shape, style and control and that ceramic heater creates a reliable even heat. Want to make someone smile this holiday?

Have a loved one who needs a boost? How about the ARROJO 1” Curling Wand? This new, easy-to-use curling wand will put natural-looking waves and curls into modern shapes and styles. We love the ARROJO 1” because it’s easy to use and features a wand rather than a clip-on iron. This is the perfect gift for that special someone who loves to create new, interesting looks.

Fresh Salon’s Top Five List

Vintage Beauty Products

These are the beauty products your grandmother loved. They inspired a generation of fabulous new products that have become mainstay for all of us!

Take a look. Remember when?

 

Hood Dryers:

This is a picture from 1935. The Hood Dryer was the rage at a London fashion show. And while heat and metal may seem like a dangerous combination, this is the model that inspired the dryer that is like a second hand to us today.

wella-climazon-2-pedestal-black

 

 

Today, this is the newest craze. It’s a high tech hood dryer that rotates heat evenly. It’s not as loud as the old models and as you can see, it uses less space.

 

 

 

 

Metal Rollers:

Ouch. They’re hot, heavy and uncomfortable. But back in the 50’s they were mainstay. Metal curlers were hard on your hair and scalp. They were replaced by velcro curlers and sponge curlers and now by hot rollers.

PCURLING79

 

 

Yes, we said hot rollers are back. Be sure to try the newest version of this 80’s classic! You’ll love the look and the new technology. No more burnt scalp! Be sure your hair is dry before you curl, and you’ll end up with those loose and lovely curls you see in magazines!

 

 

Straightening Comb

Some say it’s a straightening comb, others call it the hot comb. It came from France and was patented by Annie Malone and Madame CJ Walker in the U.S. Who would have ever guessed how important this styling tool would become?

Today, this is what it looks like. The flat iron! We all love it! Check out the ARROJO flat iron that heats fast and is less damaging to your hair than many other models. It’s a hit and a Hair Must Have!

Protect your color

Summer is coming. And with it, the sun, sand and surf that makes us fall in love with the season. But let’s face it the chlorine and salt water can also play havoc on our hair and our hair color. This summer, don’t let the elements ruin your look, try these ARROJO products and protect your hair.

Protective Thickening Lotion:

We love Protective Thickening Lotion because it thickens hair strands and fattens up limp hair! Great if you’re going to be out in the sun, Protective Thickening Lotion will also guard against breakage that can occur when you’re in salt water and chlorine.

Featured Stylist Veronica Cook

 

Fresh stylist Veronica Cook has been with us since the beginning!  She started at the salon when we opened back in 2009.

But this creative artist actually began her career long before that, and she’s first to admit that one of her original clients wasn’t exactly happy!  It was her brother, and Veronica repeatedly tried to shave his initials into his head… without success!

“I don’t know why but my mother was not happy,” she laughs.

Luckily, Veronica also tried a more traditional approach to becoming a stylist.  She loves fashion and  took art classes throughout her education.  After realizing she was not meant to sit in a cubicle, Veronica attended and graduated from Paul Mitchell Beauty School and began a rewarding career.

Veronica understands her clients, recognizing that we all look forward to our hair appointments!  She loves being part of the process and is excited when a client feels “beautiful” because of her work.  But her passion for her job runs deeper. Veronica also enjoys the close relationships she has formed over the years with her clients and her friends at Fresh.

“I love the family I have at Fresh,” she says.

 

 

Her favorite product: ARROJO Refinish Dry Shampoo.

“I use it everyday,” she says.  “I love it and I can’t live without it!”

She also says Wave Mist is a must for beautifully tousled texture.  Veronica uses both products several ways:  wet, dry and to refresh her hair.

When she’s not making her clients look and feel great, Veronica is a busy mom and wife.  With her husband Christian and son Memphis, she enjoys the White Water Center, running, biking and camping.
