Senior Colorist Jackie Manzo: Fall Trends for Hair Color

The Summer Season is coming to an end and it’s time to regroup and gear up for the Fall-Winter Seasons.  What does this mean for our hair care?  In the beginning of the Spring-Summer Season, we tend to gravitate towards lighter and more “beachy” colors.  During the season our hair is than exposed to sun, salt water, chlorine and many other environmental elements.  In order to move forward into Fall-Winter Shades, we first have to address the issues at hand.  Talk to your hair care professional about treatments such as a Conditioning or Protein Treatment ($25.+) which will re-moisturize and add much needed strength back to the hair.  Depending on your individual needs, these treatments will prep the hair for the seasonal color change.  Even a good hair cut maybe just what the doctor ordered to refresh your hair.

Some suggestions might be to deepen or richen the color.  As tans are fading, we need a little more color around our faces.  Another suggestions maybe to soften the hair to a more natural look or maybe a beautiful fall red.   You may want a beautiful chocolate brown or for the more adventurous at heart, some pastel colored pieces or a high fashion red could be just the ticket.  It is a great time to schedule a consultation with your hair care professional about possibilities and how to best prep the hair for the coming season.  When dealing with the abuse from sun, fun, heat and environmental damage it is important to communicate with your colorists or stylist so that they can book your appointment accordingly so that they have time to address your specific needs.  At Suede Salon Spa and Body Complimentary Color Consultations are always available. Call 856-985-0700 to learn about what's best for you. 

Happy Coloring, see you soon,

Makeup Artist Kelly Crossley's Facts on Airbrush Makeup Application

As we look towards fall, what is going to pop as we browse through our magazines?  Flawless skin, lush lashes and a bold lip! How are you changing your makeup routine this season?  Some think that once they find a color lipstick or blush they love they need to stick with it.  But it’s a new season and a perfect time to change it up with fall colors.

First thing is first, your skin!! When your skin looks at its best, you feel so much better about yourself. Love that flawless look, than try Airbrush Makeup Application for that special occasion! Airbrush Foundations are thinner than regular foundations.  It is highly pigmented and leaves a natural, unflawed look through tiny pixels airbrushed to your skin.  It is water, sweat and tear-resistant and can last up to 16 hours! We use a silicone based air-makeup that will diminish any fine lines, hyper-pigmentations and acne scars. It’s HD photography’s best friend, which makes it perfect for weddings!!

Show off your radiant skin with Stila's All- Day Waterproof Volumizing Mascara to open the eye and a beautifully painted bold lip in a deep red or plum.  Suede Salon Spa and Body offers lip colors from Stila  in cool and warm shades to match your skin’s correct tone. My personal favorite this season is Stila's Long Wear Lip Color in “Lover” and “Daring”.  For a glossy lip, try Stila's Harvest or Foliage Lip Glaze Trio. Three midsized lip glosses for $12!!

Stop by and speak with myself or any other member of our talented makeup department to see which shade is best for you. Suede Salon Spa and Body offers a Private Makeup Instruction Complimentary during the Fall Season.   We look forward to helping you feel your best!!

Senior Stylist Michael Sparks Talks About Hair Extentions

Looking for a change without the long term commitment?  Whether you are wishing for long hair, more volume or just a pop of color, Seamless Tape Extensions can make your dream hair a realization.   This Extension method uses a medical grade hypo allergenic adhesive that bonds to your hair without causing any damage.  Unlike other methods I have used in the past, Seamless Tape Extensions do not cause dreadlocks and will not tangle. 

The best part is it only takes 1-1 ½ hours to complete instead of waiting years for your hair to grow out you can dramatically change the length of your hair within your lunch break.  

Better yet, Extensions can be re-used up to three times depending how fast your hair grows.  As your hair starts to grow, I can professionally remove them with a solution that will not cause damage or breakage to your hair.  Then we can re-tape them back in place, closer to the root.  The whole process takes about an hour.

I have been doing hair extension for 10 years.  In my opinion the Seamless Tape Extensions are a great way to change your look with minimum expense and no damage to your hair.  Book today for a consultation to learn how to achieve the look you have been dreaming of.  856-985-0700

Esthetician Sharon Pichoto: Intro to Skin Care 101

Good Skin Care starts with proper nutrition.  Sometimes those late nights of studying and not always grabbing the right food can take its toll and wreak havoc on your skin.  CosMedix Skin care offers supplements that can be taken in the morning before you start your day:  Clarity provides powerful internal defense blend of detoxifying cleansing and supportive herbs to help acne.  Balance is a complete green formula with 44 unique fruit and vegetables which boost your energy!  Restore is a proprietary blend of herbs and probiotics to detoxify the colon.  Most importantly drink lots of water!  Half your weight = the amount of ounces you should drink each day.

Keeping a daily skin care routine “simple and affordable” is easy with the following regiment:

Cleanse in the morning and evening.  Going to bed without cleansing will age your skin 7 days!  Select a cleanser that is gentle enough to remove makeup but will also be effective for your personal skin type.  CosMedix Benefit Cleanser is great for most skin types while Purity Clean is perfect for oily/congested skin.

Tone for added protection against clogging pores. Spray a cotton ball with toner and simply swipe your face.  Benefit Balance is gentle enough for all types while Purity Balance works well with clogged conditions. 

Enhance your cleansing by using the Clarisonic brush, which will clean your skin 6 times better than you can manually!

Moisturize to protect and hydrate according to your skin type.  CosMedix Mystic provides hydration without the greasy feeling.  Phytoclear works as the best moisturizer for those “hormonal breakouts”.  Hydrate+ is a light moisturizer with and added protection of SPF 17. 

This simple routine will only take you 3-5 minutes morning and night.  Create the habit within 21 days and see the results.  Suede Salon Spa and Body offers Complimentary Consultations to help you jump start into a Skin Regiment that works best for your skin type.
