The likelihood of your hair looking like the folks above are slim to none, but the damage caused from the bitter cold winds is no joking matter! Even the healthiest of hair takes a beating during winter, and this past week, it's bitter.
Whether your hair is damaged from over-processing, naturally thirsty and dry or somewhere in between, Awapuhi Wild Ginger® offers a targeted professional treatment with dramatic, instant results. In 30-45 minutes, you will love how your hair looks and feels (and smells!).
82% softer, more manageable hair*

Paul Mitchell's HydraTriplex™ Treatment features triple action hair technology to hydrate, bind and seal the hair with moisturizing ingredients. Included are proven hair-restoring ingredients such as amino acids, vegetable proteins and nourishing oils to make dry, frizzy hair softer and more easily manageable. This advanced technology achieves hair that is luxurious, polished and silky-smooth. We can revive your hair with a single shot of HydraTriplex Treatment. It works on three levels to instantly nourish and soften parched strands, as well as improve hair manageability. The cream formula penetrates the hair to hydrate, bind and seal for a long-lasting, silky smooth feel.
If it's strength you need, we can transform broken, brittle strands into pillars of strength while protecting hair from future damage. This liquid formula of isolated proteins is virtually identical to the keratin found in human hair. A single ampoule of KeraTriplex® Treatment rebuilds fragile locks, helps prevent color fade and improves shine, while Keratin Intensive Treatment® restores their super-soft texture.

Not only does this cost quite a bit less than a full single-process color or highlight service, but it will nourish your hair, give it more shine, and let you sneak in a few more weeks before you need to retouch! Think of it like getting a top coat for your manicure - it seals in the color, protects it, and keeps your hair healthy.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate!
I don't care if you have skin like an oil slick or as dry as the Sahara on your face, you need to exfoliate in winter. Whether it's with something as basic as a daily cleaser with exfoliant, like Mary Kay's TimeWise 3-in-1 Cleanser, or going deeper 1-3 times a week with Mary Kay's Microdermabrasion, you need to slough off all that dead, dry skin, expose the fresh, supple skin, and treat it before it dies off too quickly!
The same goes for your hands! Don't forget to take care of your mitts before you put on the mitts. Satin Hands does the trick. This three-step process will pre-condition your hands, then exfoliate and cleanse, and finally moisturize and protect your hands from chapping, cracking and from feeling unpleasant.
Don't forget those lips!
Lips get chapped in the winter. This is no surprise. But, get ready to have your mind blown. You know that Chapstick you live on in winter? The one you slather on all the time? Ever wonder why you have to keep slapping that stuff on all the time, yet your lips still chap? Easy. You're coating dead skin with stuff that just coats your lips, it doesn't treat the dryness. Guess what you need to do? Exfoliate. (Sound familiar?) The BEST option for this is Mary Kay's Satin Lips set. The masque will deep condition and exfoliate the dead lip skin cells, and the balm will moisturize and protect the fresh, supple skin.
Moisturize & Strengthen
This is a great time of year to come in to get a conditioning treatment. The dry air your hair is subjected to due to the lack of humidity outside, the cold, and the dry air generated by heating systems blasting through interiors will suck the life out of your hair, leaving it brittle and weak. Consider coming in for a conditioning treatment! Depending on your hair's specific needs - from repairing breakage to adding moisture - there are several options available to you. In addition, you get a fabulous scalp massage and some quiet relaxation.
Cutting & Maintenance
Broken ends are like a run in a stocking. If you don't address them while they are small and just starting, they will shoot up and ruin everything. Even if you are growing out your hair, coming in for a trim is essential in dry, winter weather. It allows me to cut off those dead ends, make your hair look alive again, and you don't have to lose a lot of length! Remember, your hair grows about 1/2" per month, so even if I cut 1/4" of an inch, you're still ahead of the game!
Sometimes, the colors we rocked during the summer just don't suit winter. Why? Well, the light in the sky is different, not to mention the fact that it gets dark so much earlier! You may find that the haircolor that looked radiant in the summer sun, and with your seasonal tan, just washes you out now, or certainly doesn't do anything to compliment your winter skin tones. Consider coming in for a consultation and service to take a look at some options that may suite you for the winter months, but still look fabulous for all those holiday parties and events!

Photo Shoot with KLH Photography: Including a break down of what we did and what products/tools we used
The reality is that most of us end summer with our hair looking like this - super dry, scraggly, uneven - and feeling like straw. It's stiff, the ends won't do anything, and it just feels terrible between the fingertips. Your usual shampoo and conditioner doesn't do anything.
Not to sound like a yenta, but when I say that I've known Sarah since she was >>>this<<< big is no understatement - I sang at her baby-naming. Now, a college graduate with an artistic flair, and recovering from the typical college-student playing with haircolor experiments, we decided to give her a professional Unicorn overhaul.
And we finally landed here - with a stunning photo shoot in Pound Ridge, NY.
A little over a month ago, I met Arianna at The Block at The Waypointe's Wine Around the Block event. She came in and introduced me to her mom and immediately booked a haircut appointment. After a couple of haircuts, this lovely mother-to-be decided to book an appointment for a fun color, and we realized it would make a fantastic gender reveal for her upcoming baby shower! Take a look at the results!

This past week, we hosted a color education class with Salvatore from John Paul Mitchell Systems who formally introduced us to Paul Mitchell's latest - Color Craft. What is it? It's pretty awesome, that's what it is.
In a nutshell, Color Craft is a conditioner that you take home, or as a treatment at Yaffa Beauty by Rica, that can refresh your color, and give your permanent, demi-permanent, semi-permanent, and fashion colors some additional longevity and longer-lasting vibrancy. It's not going to completely alter your color, but what it will do is buy you some time in between color services, and keep your regrowth blended from shampoo to shampoo. It can also enhance your color, keeping warm tones cool, and giving cooler tones added warmth - whatever you like. And it is completely customized by me, your trusty hairstylist.
KEY BENEFITS & FEATURES
The in-salon treatment will cost $35 per session. Take home a container of custom-mixed Color Craft treatment, which will provide at least 3 applications, for $25.
