As individuals, we all have different preferences when it comes to haircuts, styling, and hair treatments. However, one thing is certain: we all aspire to have great looking hair. The key to achieving it is finding a good hair stylist. The right stylist can make a significant difference in your hair health and overall appearance. But what should you look for in a good hair stylist? Below are some tips to guide you.

Hairstyles have the power to transform one's entire look. And it's always useful to be aware of the latest styles or the most popular ones that have been trending for a while. That's why we've rounded up some of the most sought-after hairstyles for you to try out.
- The blunt bob: this classic look has been a favorite for a while. It's a low-maintenance style that looks great on all hair textures and face shapes. It's especially ideal for those with thin hair, as it adds volume and movement.

- Beach waves: who doesn't love a beachy, tousled look? This hairstyle is achieved by adding texture and volume to straight hair using a curling wand or salt spray. It's another low-maintenance look that's great for those on the go.

Believe it or not, temperatures will soon be changing and nature will remind us it is a great time of year to change our hair color. The latest autumn hair colors sound like a mixture of our favorite fall comfort foods mixed with depth, dimensions and eye catching freshness. These hair colors are described in terms like buttery blonde, milk chocolate, rich caramel, mocha, cappuccino and my favorite cinnamon toast. The deep tones in burgundy, chestnuts and copper reds are in full display. The use of these fall colors is unlimited. Like the changing leaves they can be applied in highlights, lowlights, Ombre or even in a Balayage.more

Now that our master esthetician is offering eyelash extensions at All About U (yeah I bet we have the most qualified professional offering this service around!), we wanted to share the differences between the most common form of eyelash extensions. In this blog we will simply describe classic, volume, hybrid and mega eyelash extensions.
Classic eyelash extensions basically make your eyelash line look darker and more curled while looking natural. Classic eyelash extensions are a one-to-one application with your natural lashes. This is a method where one eyelash extension is glued onto one of your natural lashes. The results appear natural, subtle and like a great mascara application that lasts!
Volume lashes deliver a thicker, more dramatic look, fuller and fluffy in appearance. The style gives a young and youthful appearance to your eyes. Volume eyelash extensions use more than one extension per natural lash in what is called a “volume fan”. Depending on the fans used, it could be a volume fan or a mega volume fan. Typically, a volume lash uses 2 to 5 extensions per...more

It seems each year there are more options to choose from when getting your next hair service. This article will keep it simple when getting color treatment and define how highlights and lowlights are used to bring the ultimate dimension out of your next color service. Keeping it simple, highlights are colored hair strands that are a lighter tone than your natural or colored base tones. Highlights are the most common color process and generally add lighter strands 2-3 tones brighter than the base or natural tones. Traditional highlights use a process called foiling that colors or lightens strands of hair from root to ends. Highlights can be subtle or bold and chunky for dramatic effects. Variations of highlights are also used to create beautiful effects including babylights, balayage and ombres. Lowlights on the other hand are strands of hair colored darker than your natural tones or base hair color. Similar to highlights, lowlights are generally 2-3 tones different from your base color. Lowlights give dimension, richness and the appearance of greater volume to the hair....more

Everyone wants that healthy and glowing complexion that comes from a little daily maintenance and some special time with an esthetician.

A proper skincare plan accomplishes so much and can help address blemishes, signs of aging, fine lines, dehydration, dark circles and so much more. One of the easiest ways to start a skincare plan is with a facial. There are so many of benefits to getting a great facial starting with a deep cleaning of all the oils, dirt and makeup built up in your pores.

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!

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...more

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...more

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....more
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...more
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...more
