Salon Enso: The Blog
All my life I have been told the importance of education. Much of that pertained to the desire my parents (and grandparents) had for me to attend college.
Obtaining a degree from an institution of higher learning was a much sought after job requirement. Read More
April has been an eventful month. Weather wise we have had snow, wind, “monsoons” and summertime temperatures.
Here at Salon Enso we have also seen our fair share of action with not one, but two back to back super successful weekend shindigs. Read More
If you asked him, my husband would probably say my favorite past time in addition to hairdressing is shopping. I do love to shop and I would venture to guess that it is a given for many females out there.
It may sound vapid, however the longer I’ve been doing hair, the more I realize how much the two go hand in hand. Part of what sells clothing is the particular “look” a brand has. Read More
If you have ever ventured into Salon Enso, or if you are one of the amazing individuals that follows us on any of our social media accounts (Twitter, Pintrest, Facebook, Instagram) you will see a group of 12 ladies that love one another like no other.
I work with some incredible women.
They are tough, talented, creative and funny as hell. I’m sure you’ve heard peals of laughter from the back room. Read More
It is mid-January already! And, if I’m completely honest I don’t remember much of it – December either. I don’t remember much of these months because they fly by in such a flurry (ahahaha).
December sees the salon reach fever pitch as everyone has to look their best for holiday celebrations – which means some very, very busy scissors in the salon (color brushes too!) Read More
A week or so ago whilst perusing Instagram (which according to my husband is my favorite hobby) I happened upon a post from celebrity stylist Riawna Capri.
She is a California hairstylist famous for styling the locks of Julianne Hough, Nina Dobrev, Steven Tyler, etc. She also co-owns the ultra-popular 901 Salon. She also co-owns the ultra-popular 901 Salon.
In my freshman and sophomore years of high school I was obsessed with a little-under-the-radar-band known as No Doubt.
Have you ever heard of them?
In reality, I was enamored with their lead singer Gwen Stefani. Not only was her last name practically my first name but she was this ideal combination of all things I wanted to be at 15 years old, but didn’t have the guts to (now I wouldn’t bat an eye!). Read More
Every September 1st, my sister, cousin and nearly every one of my Facebook friends race to the nearest Starbucks for a much coveted PSL.
To those not familiar with the abbreviation, PSL stands for Pumpkin Spice Latte. By the craze surrounding it you’d think that Starbucks invented a youth potion or discovered the coffee bean. Read More
Over 9 years ago when I began my hairdressing career I would come home and my husband would tell me I smelled good (I worked at an Aveda Salon whilst finishing up cosmetology school). As time saw me move to different venues (i.e. non-Aveda salons) that sentiment changed to “You smell salon-y.” Read More
April is Earth Month. A month dedicated to giving the giant blue marble we call home some extra love. A month where we focus on all things pertaining to the longevity of our planet: climate change, conservation, preservation and lessoning our carbon footprint. Read More
The predominant goal at Salon Enso is that you always leave happy with some killer hair. The ultimate test however is if you can style and maintain those Instagram worthy locks at home. Remember the best haircut means NOTHING unless it offers you ease of styling.
No one should ever have to fight for hours to get their hair to do what they want![Read More]
Positive mind, positive vibes, positive life.
This message graces our chalkboard for January – the month of resolutions. I skipped out on blogging last month. I’m disappointed with myself because it was my goal for myself to do this consecutively for YEARS.[Read More]
Given the events that happened earlier this month (see: THE ELECTION) I felt the need to put paper to pen –and then fingers to keyboard to write about it. This isn’t me standing on a soapbox with a megaphone. This is how I will deal with the hand that has been dealt… [Read More]
As someone with an artistic background (I write, draw and paint, all in addition to hairdressing), I recognize the importance of staying inspired. In an industry that ebbs and flows by the minute, staying motivated and brilliant behind the chair is crucial. The clients at Salon Enso are always keen for the new looks and trends. So how do we (the stylists) take something tried and true and give it a fresh spin? [Read More]
I would dare say when people leave Salon Enso the desired result is vibrant, well maintained hair. One of the most common “complaints” I hear from guests when they are spun around to look at their new hairdo is “my hair looks great – now if we could just do something about my face…” [Read More]
A Matter of Time….
One of my favorite things to discuss with clients is my love of music. I’ve gone to more clubs and seen more shows than I could possibly count. [Read More]
“No winter lasts forever. No spring misses its turn” – Hal Borland
If there is one thing that prompts swift reaction, it is when the weather is uncooperative and completely wrong for the season. This was totally evident by a holiday season that felt more like late spring and a spring that felt more like a late December.[Read More]
I’ve got the blues, the reds and the pinks…
Fashion or fantasy color is all the rage these days. It has moved beyond its punk rock, club kid beginnings and morphed into an all age phenomenon.
Just search Instagram for #pinkhairdontcare (#greenahairdontcare, #purplehair - you get the idea) and see what pops up.
I’m positive you have heard the old adage “A picture is worth a thousand words.”
As a fledgling art major (officially a studio art minor) in college this statement is positively profound (especially when you had to critique your classmates’ work every Tuesday).[Read More]
Happy New Year’s, everyone!
If you are anything like me you are most likely wondering how 2015 managed to fly by with the speed of a fighter jet. It seems like only yesterday I was composing my first blog post for Salon Enso – and that was now 365 days ago! [Read More]
Kermit the Frog was once touted as saying, “It isn’t easy being green," and to most people it’s not the most stress free road – especially when considering the world we live in and the lifestyles we like to lead. So how are your beauty products staying green?
Today’s weddings tend to be a personalized affair. And why shouldn't it be? The day is about you and your significant other - therefore it should be reflective of your personalities. However, if your relationship is a bit more of the opposites attract variety than thinking and acting as one, I do have a few suggestions to toss your way.
