Brazilian Blowout

With cold weather coming soon in the Red River Valley, maybe you are looking for a way to help battle how dry and frizzy your hair gets. We think you should try the Brazilian Blowout! This treatment can last for weeks and helps smooth down the hair strand for a sleek, beautiful look! Some benefits to the blowout are that it only takes an hour in the salon and you can do it same day as a color.

Here’s what Brazilian Blowout has to say about the treatment. “Through the use of breakthrough bonding technologies, these customizable smoothing treatments actually improve the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.” Let’s break that down a bit for you!

It’s completely customizable! The treatment is amino acid based rather than keratin, which allows the hair to have more flexibility after the treatment.

It’s perfect for all hair types! It significantly reduces drying time, helps tame crazy cowlicks, smooths out of control bangs and more.

There will be no change to your curl pattern! The client’s natural curl pattern returns without any line of demarcation from the new hair growth, like a relaxing treatment would, for example.

At Home How-To’s: Low Bun Hack

With back to school in full swing, why not show you some quick and easy styles you can wear to class, or dress up and wear to a wedding or date night! This is another in a blog series of quick at home styles you can whip up in no time! They work for all hair types and can be modified to suit your hair.

For this cute low bun, you will need a few elastics and pins, as well as some hairspray to lock it in.


Step 1: Part your hair where you like to wear it. If you so choose, pull out some pieces to frame the face. Take the rest and pull into a low ponytail. On the last loop, partially pull the ponytail through and leave about half out.


Step 2: Part that section of the ponytail left out into two, and braid each one. Secure with a small elastic.

Helpful Hint! Once you have them secured in elastics, try to pull them out a bit! This will make it look more full and add texture for if you choose to pin them!


Step 3: Take one braid, wrap it around the low bun, and tuck into the bun elastic. Repeat on other side, wrapping the opposite way. Feel free to pin those into the bun if you want more support! Hairspray with your favorite product to help hold.

Hope you loved this quick, cute style! Stay tuned for another At Home How-To!

Back to School!


It’s almost time to send the kids back to school! After a long summer full of activities, why not bring the little ones in to prep for school. We have so many services that the kiddos will love!


After all that time in the lake or the pool, its a perfect time to schedule a Malibu treatment! This treatment is perfect if it’s getting hard to brush your little girl’s hair or her hair is looking a little green. These are signs of mineral build up from the chlorine in the pool or all the natural minerals from the lake!


This is also the perfect time to get the kids in for a haircut! Whether it be just a clean up for those first day of school pictures or a nice little change for starting a new grade, we are just the place to visit!


We also have options for coloring as well! If they just want a pop of color, we have lots of different colors to choose from. Another option as well, is tape-in extensions that show off the color without the commitment. Stop in today to check out what we have as retail too, ColorMe sticks! These are a great option for one time color that washes out after 1 use!


Make sure to get the kids in quick, we fill up fast and the first dat of school will come before we know it! Call in today to your favorite location, or use our new feature, our online booking!

Brow Lamination

If you follow beauty pages on social media, you’ve surely noticed a new brow service called lamination! This process essentially “lifts” the brow hairs, very similar to lash lifting! It is very personalized and you can also tint your brows to desired color in the same appointment!

A brow lamination is a three step process, if you include a brow tint, and a great way to achieve a natural, fluffy brow look. It also can be used to “correct” unruly brows. An example of this would be a natural part or scar in the brow. A brow technician can correct it by laminating the brows into the preferred style. Many clients have brows that grow down and laminating the hair up can achieve that “fluffy brow.” 

This process can last up to six weeks! Please let your technician know if you have any skin sensitivity and we can work around it! We’ve included a couple before and afters for you to show you how amazing your brows can look!

Humidity Tips

Living here in Fargo means that in the summer, we battle fierce humidity and combat all the unwelcome side effects of it. So here are a few tips to help you deal with the humidity!

Use a humidity fighting spray, whether that be with hold or no hold. We love Amika’s The shield anti-humidity spray! Another favorite is using a high hold spray like Bedhead.

When using products to help fight humidity it is best to keep it light when applying anything with high hold. Try to keep a light hand when using a strong hairspray, for it might backfire as soon as it gets heavy from the humidity!

Another really good tip is to master a go to hairstyle that you love. Try pulling your hair back, especially if it melts on a humid day, into a low ponytail and loosen a few hairs around the face! This can be a casual way to run errands or you can dress it up for work too! Come in to any of our locations and grab some cute scrunchies or hair clips to help pull your hair back!
