Our Successful Mother’s Day

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Mother’s Day at Bella Gia Salon and Day Spa, was a huge success from start to finish! Mother’s from all ends of the spectrum came in to celebrate with us, not just Sunday May 10th, but the entire Mother’s day weekend.

We have a wonderful front desk team that works hard to help clients pick the perfect gift for the Mother in their life. We make sure to take the carrun 169x300 Our Successful Mothers Daytime to accommodate every one and customize packages to what the client needs and wants. In the picture to the right we had a client order a gift card for his wife over the phone, when he came to pick up the gift card his three year old son was fast asleep in his car. No worries, we do curbside pick up! We also made phone calls for our busy clients after purchasing gift certificates to let their Mothers know they were gifted a spa day with every taken care of when they would like to schedule an appointment.

In the spa we made everything extra special! We had a special Mother’s Day menu that we made in house, Watermelon, Strawberry, Basil infused water, and of course champagne and mimosa’s flowing under beautiful candle light! Our decor was also updated right before the big weekend. We added gorgeous acrylic art pieces to our service rooms and hall ways, and a beautiful waterfall.

Our team was so honored to make the day special for the Moms that came in over Mother’s Day weekend. For all the hard work, time, and love Moms put in every day they deserve a day of relaxation, pampering, and being catered to!

 

The Half Dos Take Over

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

The newest trend taking over is the half up-dos!

The reason why this look is taking storm is because it achieves the look every girl has been searching for! By doing a “half do” it gives your hair instant volume and fullness,  keeps your hair out of your face, and still showing off your long locks! The best part is it looks even better with “day old hair” (day after being washed)!

This look can be customized completely to your liking! If you like a messy look or a sleek clean look, a braid, ponytail or bun all are perfect to achieve the “half do”! To achieve this look it is as simple as sectioning off the top part of your hair to the thickness and width of your liking. Then pin up that top portion how you normally would, sometimes to ensure that it is secure you may want to add in a few extra pins. If you are wanting extra fullness I would recommend teasing the sides of your hair and lightly spraying the whole style with your choice of hairspray. Then style the bottom portion of your hair how you normally would. This looks amazing with all hair straight or curly.

This trend has been taking storm on the runways, with celebrities, and even your very own Bella Gia Salon & Day Spa team!

Vivid, Bold, & Bright

Friday, February 6th, 2015

It is slowly becoming more and more acceptable to have bright and bold hair colors opposed to the more traditional blondes and brunettes. Walking down the street or scrolling through your newsfeed you may find that friends are making daring changes in their hair colors from bright, bold reds and coppers to deep and daring violets, people are loving this new trend.

Before having brightly colored hair was only something done by the rebellious and dare devil crowd. Now even more conservative people from all age ranges are venturing into pure pigment vivids.

Not everyone needs to have there entire hair done in a full all over color of pure true red like the little mermaid, there are many other ways to get your feet wet with these primary colors.

Bold- Some are tinting their brunette tones by adding a kick of red or violet to give their natural color a tint/hue of the color without being too overwhelming. Inside your hair may still have that nice traditional brunette color but in the sun it will pick up and enhance the color you toned it with.

Bolder– Others are choosing to dip-dye their hair or do a few peek-a-boo high lights of a bold color, this look will give you the vibrancy your looking for while still keeping your over all color this will be less up keep by not brining the color not completely up to the roots.

Boldest- Then many are either doing an ombre or all over color of a pure pigment color definitely giving you a bold vivid look where ever you go.

Brazilian Blowout Treatment

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Working at a salon I get tons of phone calls about the Brazilian Blowout treatment for their hair. Clients want to know, what is it? Will it damage my hair?  What if my hair is colored?  So I have decided to blog the answers to all these questions and then some simple smile Brazilian Blowout Treatment

What is a Brazilian Blowout?

Through the use of innovative and breakthrough bonding technologies, these treatments actually improve the health and condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.
They start by washing your hair multiple times using the Brazilian Blowout shampoo followed by apply the solution to each section of hair. Next, they dry and flat iron the hair to lock in the treatment. Once that’s complete they wash your hair again and flatiron one more time. The end result is smooth, healthy, frizz-free hair with radiant shine!

Who is the best candidate for a Brazilian Blowout?

The Brazilian Blowout is effective on all hair types; thick, thin, dry, chemically damaged, blondes, brunettes, straight and/or curly.

Can I still receive a Brazilian Blowout with colored or highlighted hair?

The answer is YES! The BB actually improves the health of color treated hair. BB conditions the hair and seals the cuticle for enhanced color, leaving it shiny and frizz free.

How long will the Brazilian Blowout treatment last?

The Brazilian Blowout will last for 10-12 weeks if the Açai After-Care Maintenance product line is used. The Brazilian Blowout is a cumulative treatment, in that the more you receive it, the healthier the hair will be and the longer the result will last.

I hope this answers some if not all of your questions about the Brazilian Blowout treatment. Call Bella Gia Salon and Spa today to try one out! 619.297.7601

Why Buy Salon Recommened Shampoos and Conditioners?

Monday, October 20th, 2014

It happens to everyone when they go to a salon to get their hair done, the stylists recommends a “pricey” shampoo and conditioner.  The one thought that always came to my mind was ” why pay $30 each for a shampoo and conditioner when my head and shoulders is $10 total?!?” After working at a salon and having numbers hair stylists as friends, I now know why it’s important for me to spend that extra money to get a better quality shampoo/conditioner. I made the switch to Pureology Hydrate Shampoo and Conditioner and it has made the world of a difference!

Here’s what I learned:

Pureology products are all highly concentrated and have NO sulfate. This means that I don’t have to use very much product, a little goes a long ways! The bottle seems small but lasts for a while. Using a shampoo with no sulfate is probably going to be one of the best decisions you make for your hair. Sulfate is essentially used to make the shampoo thicker and lather up in the shower, it also causes frizziness and is damaging to color treated hair. Why spend all that money coloring your hair to just ruin it with your shampoo?!?!

All Pureology products have an  AntiFadeComplex®
Our exclusive blend of potent antioxidants and full spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreens, including Heliogenol and Vitamins C and E, defend hair against free radical damage to help optimize colour retention and protect from harsh environmental factors. Who doesn’t want to protect their hair?

All the products are Vegan, meaning no ingredient of animal origin. Save the animals simple smile Why Buy Salon Recommened Shampoos and Conditioners?

All in all spending the extra $20 or so is SO worth it to maintain healthy hair! Check with your salon or come visit us to pick up your new Pureology products!

Bobs and A-line cuts are here to stay! I’ve seen more clients in the last couple weeks come in to change their long hair in to the trendy new “bob” or “A-line” cut! This cropped cut is not only timeless it’s extremely versatile! This trendy hairstyle flatter every face shape and the below the chin length makes styling options endless.

High Pony’s – Most read carpet looks are extreme up-dos, but I’ve seen the “high pony” more often then not. This easy to do yourself look can be created by skipping a few washes ( the dirtier the better) and a ton of spray ☺ After gathering your hair in a high pony , curl a few pieces with a 1” curling iron then spray on a Thick Dry Finishing Spray for a more textured look.

Prepare for Hair Color Service

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

How can I prepare my hair for a color change?
I get this question a lot from clients coming in to change their hair color. Everyone wants to be able to prevent damage to their hair when making a change, whether it’s to cover greys or reinvent your look, over processing your hair by bleaching or dying it, it’s best to understand ways to help prevent the damage. Here are some tips on how to do so!

1) Use salon recommend shampoos and conditioners that are made specifically for color treated hair and applying a deep conditioning mask once a week will help protect the color. Color treated shampoos and conditioners are gentle and won’t strip the moisture from your hair.

2) Give your hair a trim prior to the color. Removing the split ends will help you keep your hair healthy in the long run.

3) Try alternating weekly deep conditioning treatments with a protein treatment. Protein fills cracks in the hair cuticle to make it smooth, which makes the hair stronger and shinier. But be careful not to apply protein treatments more than once every 1 to 2 weeks, since it can make your hair feel brittle.

4) Skip washing your hair before coloring. The scalps natural oils work as a buffer to prevent irritation that can be caused from coloring it. Dirty hair is easier to section and ensures even color distribution.

5) Steer clear of the pool! Chlorine strips away the hair cuticle, allowing minerals in the water to get into the hair shaft and alter your color. Steer clear for about 2 weeks prior and after dying your hair.

Hope this helps you prepare for your next transformation or just a quick fix up! Check back soon foe more hair tips!
