Each year fashions and hairstyles seem to change, 2021 is certainly no different. In fact, the 2020 “let it go” style has worn out its welcome. Everyone is ready to move on from 2020 so let’s look at one of the hair trends predicted to be popular in 2021.

The bob is back!

There are so many variations to today’s bob hairstyles and plenty of names to describe them from soft a-line bob, textured fringe bob, blunt chin bob, soft curved bob and even one known as a Mia Wallace bob. They can have a clean and classic look to a shaggy and trendy appearance. In any case, they are low maintenance beautiful cuts that get you noticed. Generally speaking a bob length is at the neckline but there are shorter and slightly longer versions. Customized to your facial features the bob cut can combine layers, texturing and hair color variations that make this style so beautiful. The look simply says this is not 2020 and it shows!

All About U has a talented team of hair stylists that love to work with clients providing the best possible hair services. Providing precision cuts, colors...

Baby it’s cold outside! Although we are focused on staying warm this time of year, your hair needs special attention to look its best too. We are all aware of the term “bad hair day” that usually relates to hot humid weather and the resulting flat hair look. You may not realize that cold air and its moisture robbing characteristics can be more detrimental to the health of your hair. Dehydrated hair and scalp due to cold air can create dull appearance, static, dandruff, split ends, breakage and even excessive hair loss. There are some simple things we can all do to prevent hair damage and treat cold weather hair challenges:

· Use a quality moisturizing or hydrating shampoo, conditioner and treatments. We found Olaplex to be an amazing product line dedicated to the dynamic unique health of your hair. In fact, they have a hair assessment on their website we encourage you to take to best equip yourself to care for your hair. The assessment can be found here. We also love products from Moroccan Oil, Kevin Murphy and...

We all have seen the popularity of eyelash extensions. What’s not to love when you can have full natural looking eyelashes without the endless effort of mascara or a lash curler. Eyelash extensions are one of those services that once you have them applied, you just can’t live without them!

Never tried them?

Let’s discuss what to expect with your service and a simple plan to care for them.

· Make your initial appointment when you have 2 hours of uninterrupted time to enjoy the process of quietly being pampered. You want to first speak with your esthetician and agree on the look you desire such as a classic look or volume. Don’t come to your appointment with mascara or other eye makeup already applied if you can avoid it. If you wear contacts, it may be a good day to bring the glasses. These things are not a requirement but may cut some time off the process. Finally, make sure you set up follow-up visits to touch up your lashes and maintain that dramatic look we all love. We recommend a touch-up every 2 weeks and it generally takes 30-45...

microblading2.jpg

Tired of spending hours trying to pencil in the desired shape and color of the perfect eyebrow? All About U now offers the solution – it is called microblading!

Microblading is a semi-permanent tattooing technique that creates hair like strokes to fill in sparse, irregular or thinning brows. The final product is amazing. Imagine a customized look based on the structure of your face, skin tone and consultation with our licensed master esthetician. Desired looks can range from daring and bold to subtle and natural appearing.

The process starts with cleaning and numbing of the existing brow area prior to treatment. A small handheld tool is then used to create thin, filling, hair like strokes that determine the color and shape of the new brow. Different than in permanent tattooing, the microblading tool uses special ink that is less concentrated and applied in thinner strokes. This process results in realistic natural appearing brows that are beautiful and hassle free.

Microblading treatments at All About U also include a touch-up 4-6 weeks after procedure....

Hair Transformations.jpg

In the year of a pandemic we have seen it all in the hair salon. Box dyes, home hair services, take home kits, “miracle” products, neglect and even challenges caused at another hair salon. We affectionately call all this “Covid Hair”. Shortcuts and intended savings often result in unexpected results and we are frequently asked to fix the consequences. Unfortunately damaged hair caused by these practices can be very time consuming and expensive to repair. It may take a series of appointments and time to restore your hair to pre Covid Hair condition. The reason for this is that these products often damage the hair and rarely do it consistently across all areas of your hair. These damaged areas have different ph, color, luster and strength than healthy hair. Color corrections over Covid Hair may not respond the same as healthy hair. The first thing we do is assess the condition of your hair and determine if corrections at this time are best. Some hair is literally falling out when we first see clients with Covid Hair. The long term health and beauty of your hair is our greatest...

Balayage Blog.jpg

Balayage is a hair coloring technique where the color is gradually applied to the hair in a vertical fashion. Balayage comes from the French term “to sweep” which describes the natural appearing transition in hair color. This process results in a more natural looking color application giving seemless blends of lights and darks with vast dimensions.

How is this different than traditional highlights or Ombre? Highlights are known for chunky variations or strands of color. Ombre is a more rapid transition in hair color creating a horizontal variation in tones. Balayage is focused on natural transitions, subtle yet defined.

The stylists at All About U are artists in creating the ultimate Balayage. Often described as one of the most enjoyable services a stylist performs, Balayage allows creativity working on the clients hair as if it were a fine painting. Compliment a Balayage with curls and a precision cut, the final product is magical. The transition the hair goes through is amazing to experience and the clients...

This is an unknown and a first for our business and our customers. We ask that you please be patient, understanding, and adhere to the guidelines we set in place.
