{On Trend} Burgundy Hair

Posted November 18, 2014 at 10:02 am By Re Salon & Med Spa

We love bold hair color so we really like the burgundy hair trend.  This hair color isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s for spunky ladies who want to be noticed. And we think it’s just perfect for fall and winter 2014. We know it’s tempting to go to the drug store and pick up a box of semi permanent box dye. But trust us, just don’t do it. You never know how your own personal hair color is going to react to the cheap box dye and if your color will truly turn out like the color on the box. We fix at-home dye jobs on a regular basis. So please let us save you the trouble.

If you want to try out this trendy new look for the winter, our professional colorists at Re can work with you to determine exactly what shade of burgundy you want and how to best achieve that with your natural and/or colored hair.

Here are some of our favorite burgundy hair looks for a little inspiration!

You can’t go wrong with gorgeous long hair and big ringlets. The rich burgundy hair color is icing on the cake.

Burgundy Hair Bun

A high bun is a perfect easy and chic look. But her vibrant burgundy hair color makes her look really unique.

This edgy all-black look goes perfect with her soft burgundy curls.

We love the contrast of brighter/lighter burgundy with the dark burgundy hair color.

Posted November 13, 2014 at 8:44 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

foreverbare BBL

Forever Bare BBL from Sciton is a revolutionary technology in hair removal.  Traditionally, hair removal devices apply all of their energy to any given area all at once.  By sending multiple lower fluence pulses at a high repetition rate, Forever Bare BBL provides a treatment that is safe, feast, efficacious, and comfortable. Through continuous movement during the treatment, Forever Bare BBL allows for extremely even heating of hair follicles and minimizes missed areas that occur with traditional hair removal devices.

Comfort
In addition to the continuous motion technique, the thermoelectrically cooled sapphire plate on the Forever Bare BBL handpiece provides continuous cooling, even at maximum power, to keep the skin cool and comfortable before, during the after treatment.

Speed
A large 15 x 45 mm spot size with the highest power and repetition rate of any light device on the market allows for extremely fast treatment times.

Safety
By providing energy in multiple bursts instead of all at once, Forever Bare BBL keeps the skin protected and progressively raises the follicle temperature to the therapeutic level for hair removal.

Flexibility
Multiple spot size adapters allow the user to treat large areas quickly and small areas precisely.  Smoothie adapters soften the edges of the treatment head to make the treatment more comfortable when using the motion technique.

Safe for Darker Skin
By increasing the temperature of the follicle to the therapeutic levels gradually and keeping the skin protected with cooling, Forever Bare BBL can effectively treat up to skin type V.

Makeup Tricks to Make Eyes Look Bigger

Posted November 12, 2014 at 11:18 am By Re Salon & Med Spa

Makeup Tricks to Make Eyes Look Bigger

Whether you were born with small eyes or just want to really make your eyes pop, here are seven easy tips to make your eyes look big and gorgeous!

1. Line your bottom lids with white eyeliner.

This gives your eyes a “wide awake” look. We like (insert white eyeliner here).

2. If using dark eyeliner, don’t line your entire lid.

Either line just the top lid or if you line the bottom lid, stop where your lashes stop. You can also very thinly line the top lid starting at the lashes and gradually making the eyeliner thicker towards the outer corner of the eye. For a glamorous look, join the bottom lid eyeliner and top lid eyeliner at a “V” in the outer corner of your lid. Draw the line out or smudge for a cat-eye look.

3. Apply mascara to both sets of lashes.

Longer lashes create the illusion of wider bigger eyes. So curl eyelashes first, then apply several coats.

4. Use a highlighting concealer around your eyes.

Dark circles can make eyes look smaller.

5. Keep eyebrows groomed so you have arched clean lines.

Consider trimming eyebrows if they appear too shaggy. Better yet, have this done by a professional esthetician.

6. Choose light colors for eyeshadow.

Just like dark circles, dark eyeshadow can make eyes appear smaller.

7. Highlight your brow bone.

Use a highlighting cream, pencil, or very pale eyeshadow.
