Hello! Stefan here from Salon Society. I have been a hairstylist for 16 years and am one of the two SASO stylists that offer the European Blowout. The European Blowout is a luxury experience which results in an iconic, voluminous, silky finish. Today I am going to spill some of my European Blowout secrets andtell you about the superstar products that make this blowout result so stunning.
The European Blowout is completed using our fave European product line Kerastase Paris. I first started my training with Kérastase Paris in 2011, I absolutely fell in love with the products, became a certified Kérastase specialist, and have been using them ever since!
The foundation to a fabulous blowout is always understanding the hair type I am working with and pairing technique + products to reach the desired soft, shiny, and bouncy result.
These are the best products to achieve these results:
Now you have the inside scoop on all the products that are used to create the stunning European Blowout! I hope these products will help you get a better at-home blowout. Which product are you most excited to try?

So we all know that hair masks are great and that they are SO beneficial for our hair… but how am I supposed to be using them? Is this like an everyday thing? Is this a one size fits all? Wait, was I supposed to put conditioner in after I rinsed it out? WAS I SUPPOSED TO RINSE IT OUT???
How often should you use a hair mask?
Does a hair mask replace conditioner?
PURCHASING A MARRIAGE LICENSE:
In Saskatchewan, couples who want to marry must purchase a Saskatchewan Marriage License.
A marriage license is only valid for a period of three months, or 90 days. The marriage license becomes effective the day after it is purchased. Therefore, the marriage license can be purchased anywhere from one day to 90 days prior to the wedding ceremony.
The fee to purchase a marriage license is $60.
Your marriage license can be purchased in Regina, it takes minutes to complete. Both you and your partner need to be present, along with two pieces of government issued identification (one with photo identification). If you were like me and didn't have your middle name listed on your passport, be sure to bring a document that DOES list your middle name.

Now that you're married (hooray!) It's time to think about whether or not you'll be changing your name. If you've decided to do so, the process can be a bit complicated. Luckily, the steps are detailed below so you can focus on other stuff (like thank you cards....)
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, SOMETHING TO CONSIDER...
We know it’s super exciting and you want to take on your new name right away but you do have to change over ALL of your identification cards - including your passport! SO, if you are going on a honeymoon right away you may want to hold off until you’re home so you don’t have any stressful mismatching ID cards!!
GET AN OFFICIAL MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE
The marriage commissioner who performed the marriage ceremony must forward a completed and signed marriage license to the Vital Statistics Registry for registration. The marriage must be registered before you may apply for a marriage certificate.
Some commissioners will present you with a marriage certificate at your ceremony, this document is sufficient.
What information do I need to provide when ordering a marriage certificate online?
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.

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!
