The More You Know
To start off the new year, we wanted to provide a detailed explanation of our services, timing, and how often you should be maintaining your look!

Glossing: A treatment that can help with both the health of your hair and its shade. Also sometimes called a “glaze” or a “toner”. Usually done with every highlighting service. Maintenance every 4-6 weeks. Timing: 1 ½ hours.
Partial Hair Painting/Balayage: A freehand hair coloring process where highlights are focused onto one area rather than throughout your hair. Normally, it's placed around the face or on the upper layer of your hair with a focus on the ends. Maintenance every 8-12 weeks. Timing: depending on hair density, up to 3 ½ hours.
Full Hair Painting/Balayage: A freehand technique where highlights are painted throughout your hair. Maintenance every 12 weeks. Timing: up to 4 hours.

Crown: Highlights mainly targeting the hairline and where the client parts their hair. Maintenance every 8-12 weeks. Timing: up to 2 ½ hours.
Corrective Color: An hourly service where the stylist corrects mistakes previously made, either by the client or a different stylist. Involves toning out unwanted brassiness; lightening or darkening the hair more to achieve the desired effect. Maintenance up to stylist’s discretion. Timing: to be determined by stylist.
Keratin: a professional treatment that penetrates the cuticle to reduce frizz & curl. It repairs damage, making the hair smoother & healthier with each treatment & blocks the effects of humidity to prevent frizz. Also, it cuts down on styling time & allows for easier blow-drying. Results last up to 3-4 months. Timing: depending on length of hair, 3-4 hours.
Keratin Express Blowout: This unique express smoothing service gives your hair the super-charge of keratin in just one hour, with results that last 4-6 weeks. It’s the go-to hair smoothing treatment for those new to keratin. Timing: 1 ½ hours.
We cater to each client’s individual needs, therefore maintenance and timing may be adjusted by the stylist based on the client’s hair length and density.
