you asked, we answered | Q&A

A few weeks back, we asked you to send us questions on our instagram with any questions that you have about your hair. We saw your questions and have some answered from you from our team!


What are ways to get the most life between washes (someone with an oily scalp)?

Use dry shampoo after you blow-dry, not the next day! You should use it as a preventative not a fix. We have a few different dry shampoo options in our collection, if you are unsure which one will work best for your hair, consult one of our stylists. Avoid touching your hair too much during the day to keep the oils from your hands out of your hair. Lastly, brush your hair daily!


What is the difference between balayage and highlights?

Balayage is a freeform hand painting technique that is a lower maintenance alternative to highlighting. Highlighting is a traditional technique used when lightening the hair. When scheduling a color appointment, we highly recommend that you come into the salon for a consultation. This allows us to determine the time needed to achieve the look you are going for.


How can I prevent gray hairs?

Sadly, there’s no true preventative to gray hairs. The old myth is that when you pluck one hair, three more grow back. There's no scientific evidence to prove this is true, but we definitely do not recommend plucking out the hairs. If you’re not ready to fully commit to coloring your hair, you can do a gloss. A gloss is semi permanent hair color that will soften the color of the gray and will fade out with time.


How to help dry damaged winter hair?

The best way to treat dry damaged winter hair is by starting with a new shampoo and conditioner. If that’s not enough, we recommend doing weekly to monthly hair conditioning treatments to help put protein back into the hair and give it the moisture it is lacking.
