Hey there! We have opened our salon (yay) and you have booked your appointment to get your roots done, but until then... here’s a blog post all about BLOWOUTS. How to maintain your locks, and attempt your blowout at home while waiting for your appointment.
1st step: As soon as I get out of the shower I ring out my hair and brush through a few of my favourite products. Right now I use Olaplex #6 (works great to detangle) and a dime size of Kevin Murphy Young Again Oil on my ends.
2nd step: I always let my hair dry to about 70-80% with the product already combed through to maintain frizz. I put on my makeup, get dressed, eat breakfast, and by then it is dry enough to start!
3rd step: Before blow drying, I spray my hair with a heat protectant! I use Kevin Murphy Heated Defense. I section out my hair and clip the rest on top. Don’t hold the blow dryer so that it’s touching the brush, hold it just an inch or two away from your hair.
HOT TIP: I always try to hold my brush so that the handle is pointing forward. For me, it makes things feel less awkward!
4th step: I take the next section of hair and do the same thing. If you can’t do the back, it’s easier to pull your hair all to the front! For the top back section I will pull my section of hair straight up with my brush and blow dry to increase the volume.
5th step: For my bang area I like to blow dry my hair away from my face. Just so that it doesn’t curl completely under and I get a little volume at the root. Finish it off with a light hairspray, my favourite is Kevin Murphy Bedroom Hair.
Practice makes perfect, I promise! It’s a little tricky to figure out how to hold a brush and the blow dryer and make sure your hair isn’t flying everywhere... but find what is comfortable for you and go with that! And if not, we’ll be here to save you. ️
See you very soon, Shanna <3
Hey there! Ailesh here from Salon Society in Regina, Saskatchewan.
For my first ever blog post I decided to write about something I am very passionate about - nail art. I love trying new things, keeping up with nail trends, and learning new techniques. I know first-hand how daunting nail art can seem, especially when you're just starting out, so I've put together my top tips for beginners to nail art - I hope you enjoy them!
1. Keep It Simple
If you are just starting out keep it simple and easy. Classic designs like polka dots, hearts, and flowers are a great starting point and will help to hone your fine motor skills.
2. Add A Twist
Find an simple design and jazz it up with a twist. For example, layering different coloured polka dots. Adding a matte top coat is another easy way to transform a look!
3. Perfectly Imperfect
Aim for designs that don't require perfection. Instead, try looks that allow for imperfection from nail to nail - think bold brush strokes, abstract designs, and mixing textures and patterns. This is especially helpful if you are trying to do nail art on both hands but aren't comfortably ambidextrous yet.
4. Go All Out (Almost)
Go all out, full crazy nail art - on one hand. Use your dominant hand to create the nail art of your dreams on one hand. Then using your non-dominant hand, paint simple solid coloured nails in a colour that compliments the design hand.
Heya for those of you who don’t know me yet I'm Aaron Brousseau and I’m a Lead Hair Artist at Salon Society in Regina, Saskatchewan.
If you’ve ever visited our beautiful space at 1368 Rose Street, you’ve probably seen me or at least experienced my larger than life personality! One of the things I’m known for is my eccentric facial hair. That is (most of the time) meticulously groomed. The question I get asked the most is “how long does that take?” or “how do you get it to do that?” I usually keep the answers short and sweet but today I’m going to show you all my secrets on how to style the perfect beard.
And there you have it the perfect beard that feels, smells, and looks amazing!

This blog post is going to be a few tips on how to style your hair without putting any heat on it. During this quarantine period, there’s no real reason to be putting heat on your hair. It’s the perfect time to give your hair a break! But if you’re like me who has crazy/curly/frizzy hair, you’ll need to do SOMETHING to it to feel human everyday.
Hi there! Kami here from Salon Society in Regina, Saskatchewan.
Today I sat down to write my first blog post ever, and I decided to go with something that I have had
a lifetime of experience with – thick hair. My love/hate relationship with my frizzy, thick hair started at a young age, and since then I have done just about everything to it (from bleaching it, to shaving it, my poor hair has seen it all) – however, no matter the length or colour, my favourite hair care tips remain the same.
There we have it; those are my top 3 tips for embracing the blessing in disguise that is thick hair!
Until next time hair friends:
