Mask TLC

😍💋❤️ Treat your self and replenish your hair as you do your skin. 😍💋❤️

Strengthen, hydrate, and condition your hair with a weekly mask to nourish and encourage healthy, glossy locks.  Putting yourself first is always a good idea — carve out time weekly for self care and replenish your hair and skin with a mask. Restore hairs elasticity to resist breakage from chemical processing, color treatments, and heat styling with one of our many hair mask at Salon Basia. After regular use you will notice dryness of hair is reversed and your hair is soft as cashmere.

2017 Hair Trends

Hair this fall and winter is all about the drama of simplicity. From a blunt fringe, a messy ponytail, dimensional color, or from playing with multiple textures to new incarnations of just plain old pretty looks. Subtle tweaks of color and face framing haircuts help transition your summer hair to feel more rich and modern for this holiday season. With the holidays right around the corner, make sure that you book your appointments sooner than later @ Salon Basia!

Super Sleek

Yes, 2017 hair trends are all about giving curls a go and bringing back super straight hair…your 16 year old self totally mastered!

Time to get those flatirons back out.

Using your hair dryer, blow dry from root to ends with the air flow pointing toward the ends. Be patient!

Only then, if necessary, use your flatirons on their lowest heat to relax any kinks.

Soft and Smooth Locks: Tips to Nourish Your Hair

Get healthy, beautiful, shiny hair

No matter if your hair is fine, straight, curly, or thick, you can get smooth, manageable locks. Follow these tips to nourish your hair and leave it shiny, beautiful and healthy.

Skip a day between shampoos

Unless your hair is extremely oily, you can typically cleanse it every other day, rather than daily. Skipping a day or two between shampoos can help to avoid stripping your hair of its natural oils produced to nourish your locks. Though it may seem "dirty" to you, you'll find you hair looks and feels healthier when you stop washing it daily. If your hair is dry, you should continue to condition it daily in the shower. Dry shampoo is our favorite hair hack, we love Davines® dry shampoo to give oily roots a boost!
Protect from heat damage

Nothing zaps the life out of your hair like the heat. Use a heat protector such as melu heat shield from Davines to protect strands. Allow your hair to dry naturally whenever possible. It's also important to keep your hair and scalp nourished with oils and mask. We love Minu hair mask from Davines or Olaplex used weekly as a treatment for dehydrated locks. Another set of great conditioners are Surface BASSU Hydrating Masque and L'oreal Powerdose Vitamino A-OX. Healthy hair is quite hard to achieve and manage as our hair is exposed to chemical treatments, heat, and pollution. With the right products, tools and guidance from your stylist you will be equipped to fortify and improve your hair. Your locks will Praise you!

Fresh Hair Colors to Try for Spring 2017

When the seasons shift, switching up your makeup and rethinking your skincare is a must, but a fresh hair color update is also worth considering as warmer weather arrives.  As with most important life choices, we look to celebrities and the Insta-famous for guidance.  Let us help you pick your new hair color.

Chocolate Brown

Warmer temperatures may temp you to lighten up, but I suggest the opposite in some cases. Going to the opposite spectrum with Chocolate Brown is a great option.

Strawberry Blonde

If you are blonde and want to try reds, trying strawberry golden blonde is a must.  It adds subtle color to skin and creates a warm golden glow.

Hot Reds

Red is going to dominate the Spring color trend.  For those of you already rocking the red, change things up by adding some babylights to transition into warmer weather months.
Honey Blonde

A chameleon - not quite blonde, not quite brown, this classic shade suits everyone.  A softer, one tone honey blonde this season is beautiful.  Starting from a brunette, gradually work from dark to light, speckling of color from roots to ends is so flattering.  Deeper roots and multi-dimensional ends will always be a trend.  With less contrast between the tones, making a softer, less harsh color.

White Blonde

High impact platinum is an excellent option if you are already blonde.  It's a huge commitment all around but makes a hot statement.
