Stick to the Trend

P & H Salon and Spa is giving you the inside scoop on the season’s latest trends with a chance to look into Wella’s 2014 international Trendvision Awards competition at OMC Hairworld in Frankfurt, Germany.

P & H had their very own Fay Linksman compete in the prestigious event. She says participating in Trendvision was a life-changing experience.

“All I have to say is wow… Everything was larger than life. All of the major manufacturers were present and pulled out all of the stops for the show. The stage was huge. There was a suspended catwalk bridge and everything. Meeting all of the other competitors from all over the world was really amazing, too.”

Braid it baby!

by: Erica Vella

It’s summer. Finally, we get to relish in the sweet sun and bask in the beauty of season.

Summer coxes people out of their hardened winter shells and gives them a chance let their hair down, literally.

But… for those days that are too hot and too sticky, we have a solution for you.

This month, P & H Salon and Spa wants to reveal the beauty behind the braid.

Instead of tossing your hair in a top knot or a slicked back ponytail, we suggest weaving your hair into something different.

A braid can be worn in different ways…

Laser enlightenment

By Erica Vella

You slip into that sweet sundress after months of hibernation. “Finally!” you think to yourself… It’s time for those milky white legs to feel the glow of the warm sun. As you step into those cute wedges you’ve been dying to wear all winter, (you got them on sale last fall- Duh!) you look down at your legs and to your horror – you forgot one crucial step in getting ready this morning. You forgot to shave.

Your legs have now grown a full layer of fur. It’s not your fault! Shaving isn’t part of your normal routine anymore! You’ve become accustom to the blistering cold weather and bundling up from head to toe in what felt like the longest and coldest winter in forever.

Feeling absolutely defeated, you pull on your skinny jeans, button up your blouse, and put aside that cute sundress and those ‘to-die-for’ shoes… you’ll have to save them for another day.

Sounds familiar?

Summer is fast approaching and with beach season around the corner, we want to bare our bodies confidently for that bikini and shorts weather.

But shaving can takes up so much time and waxing leaves us with the awkward ‘in between’ days where you just have to let the hair grow… Sometimes it’s not an option. You have an important function coming up and there is no way you can attend with stubbly legs.

If you’re not a fan of shaving everyday and you don’t have the patience to wax, P&H Salon and Spa has another method you may want to consider: Laser hair removal.

Let’s break down the treatment:

Fun Facts About Facials

By Erica Vella

Facials are an important part of maintaining a healthy looking complexion. We’ve all heard that before. But have you ever asked why? This treatment is a luxury that people often neglect because we don’t understand their purpose.

Jane Zhang, Spa Manager at P & H Salon and Spa says that skin needs to be pampered and protected at all times. “Our skin is the largest organ in our body. It protects us from the harmful invasion of foreign substances and also helps the body excrete waste.”

P & H Salon and Spa is delving deep into this important treatment with five facts about facials.

1.The first cleanse – Our face collects pollutants and toxins from the environment. The first cleanse exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells that accumulate over time.

2. Skin steam – Opens the pores and hydrates skin surface to give you added moisture.

3. Extractions – One of the more unpleasant parts of facial but worth it. It removes impurities from the skins surface and helps skin breath

4. Facial Massage – Not only does this feel good but it’s good for you. It stimulates the skins surface by increasing circulation of blood flow.

5. The Final Masque – The finishing touch. It brings oxygen and nutrients to feed the skins at the dermal level.

Once the facial is done there are tons of at home remedies you can do to maintain that healthy looking glow! Cleanse and moisturize daily. “Our skin renews every 28 days”, Zhang said. “So getting your facial done every four weeks is recommended.”

Spring time is here! So treat yourself to something you deserve. Rid your skin of dead and dry skin and freshen up that complexion.
