Blow Dry with a Haircut – Don’t Leave Without It!

It’s true that there are a lot of things that need to be considered when clients come into the salon seeking a new haircut or style. And while the cutting of the hair itself might feel like the main event, there are a lot of considerations needed to make sure you get the best cut for you. To better understand why a blow dry is so important, it’s important to understand the timeline of a haircut appointment. Before the haircut itself, I perform a client consultation. During client consultations we decide which haircut we are going to do, I carefully survey the client’s hair and evaluate whether this...

The Appeal of A Peel

When people think of a peel, they often think of a chemical solution that mimics a sunburn when applied to the face. Thankfully, that is not the kind of peel we love or specialize in at Zen Zen. The first thing we tell clients about our peels is that they will experience “no down time.”  This means that clients won’t have to hide their faces from the sun, and will be able to apply makeup normally after the peel. Our signature peels are composed of ingredients like fruit acids, vegetables, and essential oils that gently and effectively exfoliate the surface of the skin. These peels are ideal for clients...

Ammonia: Friend or Foe?

Ammonia: most of us have heard of it, but how many of us actually know what ammonia is and how it works? In the beauty world, there are varying opinions on whether ammonia is good or bad, safe or harmful. To dig deeper into this debate, let’s first break down what ammonia actually is.

When there is ammonia in the color, the outermost layer of your hair, also known as the cuticle of the hair, opens extremely wide, allowing the color to penetrate deeply. The result is rich, saturated hair color that has a softening effect. However,...

Split Ends – Causes and Treatments

Could your last haircut be giving you split ends? The answer is yes…especially if you are the one cutting your own hair. I can remember, before I started doing hair professionally, being fascinated…maybe even obsessed with split ends. I would sit at my desk when I was supposed to be doing my home work, getting lost in a section of hair. I would hold the strand of hair carefully fanning it out between my fingers to expose as many hairs as possible. What would I find? A single split, double split, or multiple splits? On the multiple splits, which were too exciting for words, I would curl the...

Itching Scalp After Coloring

Last week, one of my clients came into my Aventura hair salon for in for organic hair color. I had only seen her once before so I didn’t have a pattern of her visits. I remember her, during our consultation she informed me that she is a breast cancer survivor and it was just a few years ago. When a cancer survivor comes in for hair color and other services I like to take the time to explain why we have 13 different hair color lines and how we actually prescribe the type of hair color that will be the safest for their health requirements, their sensitivity...
