April 21st, 2014 | Overwhelmed by Hair Care Products?

Davines ProductsWhen washing your hair, do you ever wonder if this is the best product for your hair? When a TV commercial or magazine about hair care catches your eye, or if you see someone else with shiny bouncy hair, do you say to yourself, “why doesn’t my hair look like that, too?”

So, you decide to invest in products promising hair miracles. At the store with hundreds of hair care products, an overwhelmed feeling rushes through you. Between your time spent trying to understand the fine print on the labels and the range of product costs, your expectations are starting to spiral out of control.

You’re looking at the sales clerk, reluctant to ask for help because their hair doesn’t reflect the level of expertise you’re seeking. And, then, other things may cross your mind, as you stand among the sea of hair care. Can the containers be recycled? Are the ingredients harming the environment? Can you believe the research showing the product is the latest and greatest?

Overwhelmed with information and worried about the growing wrinkles on your furrowed brow while evaluating which offers the best cure for the price, you finally grab one, hoping this will justify your trip to the store.

Is there a better way to shop for hair care products? First, identify what is it about your hair type you want to change? Do you want to smooth your frizzies, do your limp locks need body or is it overall damage control needed?

Where else do you find someone who is passionate about hair, someone who studies it, researches it and works with hair all day long, than at a hair salon. The stylists know about every type of hair in the world and will recognize your hair type and recommendations on what products will solve not only today’s problems, but put your head of hair on the long-term road to recovery. At Salon Nouveau, our Tucson hair salon experts are constantly in touch with national experts and will do the research to ensure you’ll have the right product for your hair to put it back on the shiny bouncy path.

After all, your hair can be such a visible part of your self confidence. Having a great hair day can even give you just the right boost throughout your day to make it even more successful.

In our research to identify great hair care products, our experts with Salon Nouveau found a new hair care line from Davines. We fell in love with the simplicity, effectiveness and handcrafted beauty of this Italian line and have brought the products to our store in Tucson. For those unfamiliar with the Davines products, here’s a link to their story. These products are natural and environmentally safe as well as enhanced with cutting-edge cosmetic technologies. Take a look the next time you visit the Salon–we think you’ll like what you see and will be happy when you try these products yourself!

July 22nd, 2013 | Top Three Latest Hair Trend for Ladies

If you have ever surfed through the music videos posted on YouTube, you probably had a grand old time being amused by the wild changes in hairstyle from the 40s onward. Hairstyles can definitely get wild and weird. From bouffant hairdos that look like giant beehives perched on women’s heads to wild and woolly hairstyles of the 60s to the oh so funky styles that were all the rage in the disco 70s, hairstyles definitely match the wild gyrations of clothing fashions. Hair trends come and go. There is an ebb and flow with hair styles just like fashions. Fashion is never entirely new. They always contain references to earlier styles and fashions. Keep that in mind when considering the top three latest fashion hair trends for ladies listed below. Get ready to rush off to the salon so you can sport the latest look.

The Knot

Whether you wear your hair long or mid-length, wearing a knot has been quite big lately. Knots add a bit of elegance and style to any outfit. The great thing about this hair style is that it is very flexible. Regardless of which outfit you are wearing and regardless of your mood, you can find a knot style that accentuates your overall look. It is also fairly easy to do. You only need to wash your hair, blow dry it, form a pony tail and fold away. The best thing about this hair style is that you can achieve many different knot looks depending on how much time you have. You can do a simple knot or you can do elaborate braided knots reminiscent of Renaissance hairstyles. Of course, proper hair care is needed for this hair trend style. You will be handling your hair a lot, and you need clean healthy hair to get the most value from this look.

The Braid

Given the popularity of knotted hairstyles lately, it was just a matter of time until a salon stylist took it to the next level. Enter the braid. This hairstyle is a more involved and more intricate version of the knot. This style definitely takes a lot more time. Unlike the knot which is very close to wash and wear, you have to spend some time working on your hair to achieve the braid look. The great thing about this look is that it shows that you spent some time on your hair. It is time well-spent because every minute you spend braiding your hair yields a classy and elegant, even fragile, look. This is not wash and wear hair by any long shot

The New Low Pony

If you are a busy professional who is always on the go who wants an understated yet classy look, you might want your salon stylist to give you the new Low Pony cut. This is essentially a pony tail that is cut for maximum comfort and convenience. This cut is great for busy college students who don’t have time to style their hair. Just dry your hair and tie. Very easy. Very quick. The downside is that you have to have the right outfit for it. If not, it might take away from your outfit and clash with it. For example, you can’t wear your power suits with this cut. It will take away from the suit.

December 5th, 2011 | Salon Staff Completes Advanced Training in YOU School at Eufora Headquarters

Two of our industry veterans, Tracy and Eric, recently completed an intensive training session in Carlsbad, California at the headquarters of Eufora International. They learned systematic techniques for achieving interior shapes through directional and switch layering as well as spherical and vertical cutting. Eric and Tracy returned to Salon Nouveau newly inspired about deepening their mastery in the profession and are applying their new skills to both classic as well as contemporary cuts for their clients. Tracy and Eric are pictured here during a break from their training with the great Don Bewley, founder and president of Eufora International.

Salon Nouveau is always pleased to help our staff sharpen their professional skills! All of our stylists will receive similar training in early January.
