Hello to my Curly-Hair Folks!
I know it has been a minute since my last blog. After receiving such incredible feedback about my Curly Hair Love blog some of you tried my steps at-home and the results were great! May as well continue this trend.
I love seeing so many people embracing the natural textures of their hair. Go with the flow! Our hair's true natural texture is beautiful!
Our topic today is Colouring Curly Hair:
Some of you may be worried that colouring or lightening your curls will damage them. But I say, fret not! During these long quarantine hours, I did some research just for this blog. I wanted to see what the people of Google say about colouring your curls. And in my opinion, you shouldn’t listen to them… they are the people in Brad Mondo’s nightmares.
The top misconceptions in my research were:
Not to be dramatic but girl, they are lying!
I have over 10 years of experience colouring naturally textured hair using lightener and permanent colour. My curly clients have healthy hair. With proper education and caution, licensed professionals have safely used lighteners and permanent colours for years.
Henna colour cannot be removed from the hair, and will cause chemical reactions when lightener is used. What this means is that if you have coloured your hair with Henna you won't be able to alter it afterwards. Even highlights would be extremely damaging and cause a chemical haircut. It's best to stay away from Henna if you like to change things up regularly.
Here are some things curly-hair folks should consider when colouring their locks:
When picking a colour we want to create a beautiful, cohesive look. So rather than picking a multi-tonal masterpiece, stick to looks like ombré, balayage or highlights. These techniques enhance the look of your natural curl texture and it's a more gentle colour process.
Be bold! As curly-hair folks, we should not be limited by traditional colours. Don’t be afraid of going bold with colour.
My personal favourite is a softer colour as your hair has a lot of movement. Soft colours enhance what you already have and you are perfect! When choosing a colour, you should be mindful of your natural skin tone and eye colour. Picking something that complements your natural features. This is one of my favourite parts of the consultation process and I'm happy to help you fine just the right hue.
I take pride in my work and strive to give ALL my client’s what they want while maintaining the integrity of their hair. Your hair is a reflection of you and my mission is to empower you by treating your hair as it deserves to be treated.
I would love for you to schedule a consultation with me. We can discuss what we can do to achieve your ideal colour and style or we can find a look that will enhance your beautiful curls. You got this!
Hey all from my final few weeks of quarantine!
All of us at Salon Society are so excited to be back in our beautiful space and working on some beautiful heads of hair!
Today I am going to address CURLY HAIR! This is a topic I know a lot about - being a Curly Girl myself!
Curly hair is one of my favourite things to do behind the chair!
I am the Curly Hair Specialist at Salon Society and I love to help guide my clients with controlling their curls. (CURLS FOR THE GIRLS)
There are so many different types of curls and waves, a few of us know how to work and control it! But some of us still can't seem to get it right!
The best analogy I tell a lot of my curly/wavy clients is “Curly hair is like a Toddler - It’s good and well behaved one second and the next it is a total jerk!”
I am going to walk you through a quick view of how I coach my curly clients.
2. Structure - In my professional opinion curly hair cuts are no different than any other haircut and it needs structure! Yes, our hair does shrink and if we cut too much off it shrinks shorter but giving it actual structure in the cut will show it who’s the boss and will not turn into that evil toddler.
3. Shampoos & Conditioners -
4. Styling - Getting all the right products for your curls will change your life!
Here are some of my Pro-Tips:
Well that’s it folks!
Those are all my hidden secrets.

Greetings from quarantine and my couch!
Being cooped up in my home for the past couple of weeks watching so many T.V. shows and a lot of commercials about hair products being sold in our drug stores has got me thinking…
Do you really know what's in that bottle?
A lot of major beauty companies(we won’t mention any names) that we see in our drug stores are mass produced and contain a lot of ingredients that we cannot pronounce thus resulting in a hell of a deal($$$). One of the ingredients that we see in shampoos and conditioners from them is actually wax, plastics and high percentages of alcohol. Yes, your hair feels clean and soft, but it is?
Majority of these drug store products also contain a lot of sulphates which causes a huge lather that appears to be cleaning your hair. When actually all it is doing is leaving all of that dirt in your hair and putting a wax coat over top of it. Gross eh?
That sizzle you hear when you pass your flat iron through that heat protectant…. That's vodka... Think about it.
Who knows more about your hair’s needs than your stylist?
Why not ask them their professional opinion about Salon Products?
The reasoning why is because your hair is one of your biggest investments as well as it is the first thing that people notice. You spend a lot of money getting your hair done, wouldn’t you wanna take care of that investment?
Kevin Murphy is one of the brands we carry at Salon Society. All of Kevin Murphy’s products are from natural sources and are created by Kevin himself who is a working stylist in our industry. All of the ingredients listed on the back of the bottles are clearly stated as well as not wax, plastic or alcohol. So they are great for your investment!
