Today, highlights are taking a backseat to the “Ombre, Ribbons of Light, Paint Drips, and Panels of Color.” As the styles emerge from Europe you can see a change in the way color techniques are applied as stylists are now moving away from the all consuming heavy highlight look. The trick is having a well trained expert know these techniques, combined with how to nurture the hair. Everyone wants gorgeous shiny hair that looks like a million bucks.
At The Beauty Spot, our goal is to share these techniques with all of our clients.
Our Artists at The Beauty Spot want to help you be current. Nothing ages a person like a dated hair-do! Think mullets, and curly permed balls (instantly your mind conjures up an image of Aunt Beatrice). The same is now true of highlights which have been around for 15-20 years now. With so many options that are edgy and fashionable coming from all over the world, highlights are no longer the only choice for bringing some excitement to your hair.
One minute and Instantly Ageless greatly, awesomely, SUPREMELY reduces fine lines, wrinkles and pores. We have seeen some of the most difficult faces walk out of The Beauty Spot feeling 20 years younger!

What makes this product different from other smoothing or straightening systems?
The Brocato Smoothing System 2.0 is a demi-permanent smoothing system, not a permanent straightening system that often contains toxic levels of formaldehyde. The creator of the product was concerned by the many toxins found in the straightening systems on the market, and decided to come out with his own safer and more health conscious product. This system is not only safe for clients and stylists but is able to tame frizzy and unruly hair, completely transforming the client’s hair texture to the soft sleek look their desire.
Who is this product for?
Anyone who would like an easier more controlled texture for their hair. The system can be broken down and adjusted for any hair type and client. You will still have style options after the process. Curls, volume, straight or any other style you could dream will be easier to achieve after the service because the product does not leave your hair stuck in a permanent texture like all other curl or straightening system available do. Instead it straightens curl, smoothes frizz, and adds shine to any and all hair types.
How long will it last?
Up to six months with the correct care and products from the Curlinterrupted product line.
Can you have colored hair before or after the service?
Yes. You can actually receive a color service during the Curlinterrupted 2.0 system.
How long does the service last?
The service time will range from 2 to 3 hours depending on length and texture of hair.
Fall has arrived, and many of us are thinking about change. This is the time of year that we start seeing more texture and richer colors in fashion, cosmetic choices, and in our hair color and shape. Fall 2010 is showing monochromatic color selections in fashion. Naturally, cosmetic choices should fall in line, but what about your hair?
Your hair color can absolutely mirror this trend. “MonoDimension” is the artistic application of hair color to create dimension, in a single palette of color. Rich brunette applied in 3 tones of brown, mahogany and chestnut. Stunning redheads featuring auburn, ruby and glittering copper. Want to be blonde…nothing is more gorgeous than a creamy dimensional blonde.
A good colorist will create a color application utilizing the play of light and dark tones, to enhance your facial features and your haircut shape. The artistry of hair color placement allows us to create dimension and drama…in a single tonal palette. Stripes are OUT, MonoDimension is IN.
Haircut shapes this fall are classic with an edge. The Bob is always in fashion, we just adjust it with the times. It is softer this season, and just a bit asymmetric. Short hair is disconnected with lots of texture. Longer shapes are soft and glamorous, with imperfect wave patterns.
Our responsibility, as your stylist, is to help you be on trend. We should be watching fashion trends, and advising you, our client, in looking amazing. Your hair color and style can be a great asset to your personal look…or it can kill it. If your hairdresser is not listening to you, maybe it is time to go shopping.
