Proud EnviroStars Green Business Partner!

Emerson Salon is very proud to become an EnviroStars green business partner!
Running our salon business sustainably is healthier for us, our clients, and the planet.

 

Since D’Arcy and Lancer took over as co-owners of Emerson Salon, we have done our best to operate sustainably. Last year, we replaced our shampoo sink hoses by partnering with Eco Heads, and recently installed low-flow aerators in our bathroom and chemical sink faucets to reduce our water use.

 

We continue to order our salon supplies according to our environmentally-preferable purchasing policy to reduce our impact on the environment, and have made our building more sustainable by replacing all of our lighting with LEDs over time.

This month, we acquired dual compartment garbage/recycling bins and started composting our paper towels. We love learning about all the things we can incorporate in our business to become even greener!

Catering to an eclectic mix of clientele, our storefront is at street level in the Pike/Pine Corridor in Capitol Hill, Seattle, WA. We are within close proximity to the light rail, Metro buses, hospitals, Seattle Central College, Seattle University, and the First Hill Streetcar.

Our loft style space benefits from the natural light coming in from our storefront windows in tandem with our eco-friendly LED lighting. The space is maintained on-site by working owners/operators (read below “Background on Us.)”

We operate clearly as “A Community of Independent Hair Designers,” where each booth renter can run their own calendars with online booking like hirefrederick.com (or any other online scheduler you might choose.)

Stations are leased for 2 (at minimum) – 6 days (maximum) per week, and our salon is open 6 days a week. Emerson Salon sees foot traffic from our regular clients in addition to walk-ins for services and/or purchasing retail products.

We are closed on Mondays for salon cleaning and educational events/opportunities. Booth renters’ lease rates are determined per days of the week each station is leased. We start everyone out with a 3-month trial lease with an option to sign a longer term 6-month or annual contract following successful completion of the trial period. There is no increase to your base day rate during the trial period {currently $55.00/day.} As individual small business owners, we each establish our own appointment hours, available services, and book our clients’ appointments. Online booking is provided to booth renters at no additional cost through hirefrederick.com.

  • your festival day request 12 hrs in advance of your appointment. You may get a pass for your day of appointment or the next day.

Color Care At Home

 

 

Just because a color may be “permanent”, hair color doesn’t last forever. ALL hair color, whether natural, temporary, demi-permanent, semi-permanent, or permanent, will dull and fade over time. Protect your color investment by slowing the fading process by following these tips!

1) Wash less often, and consider using dry shampoos between washes.

2) When you DO shampoo, wash and rinse your hair with cooler water (easy to do in the summer for sure!) This helps keep your color from running.

3) Use shampoos and conditioners that are formulated to maintain color. UVA and UVB protective shampoos and conditioners keep your color looking fresh by protecting from the sun’s harmful rays that dull color over time, and using pigmented shampoos and conditioners, such as the Love Kevin Murphy Colouring.Angels at home between salon appointments to deposit color temporarily.

4) Watch the heat styling. Using hot tools on high-heat settings will fade a color quicker than anything. Use a thermal protectant spray before applying heat from your blow dryer or hot irons, because thermal protectants create a barrier between your hair and the heat. Using a lower heat setting is much safer in the long run and also helps prevent moisture loss that is inevitable from using hot tools on your hair.

NEW! Colour Angels from Kevin Murphy


 NEW! COLOUR ANGELS from Kevin Murphy

If you have blond or pre-lightened hair to a level 9, 10 0r 11 (yellow or lighter) you can play around with these supremely conditioning glosses for your tresses.

“Meet our newest blondetourage: COLOURING.ANGELS. Our four new colour-enhancing treatments add a lip-gloss like shine and tone to the hair to enhance existing tones, neutralise unwanted tones, and improve colour longevity without building up on the hair. Packed with hair-loving ingredients such as Olive Leaf Extract, Green Tea Extract, and Grape Seed Oil, our newest ANGELS moisturise your hair while improving flexibility and adding protection for your locks.”

There are 4 in the series:

Blonde, Autumn, Crystal, Clear and Sugared.

See the key below for its tone enhancing hues and counteracting colors.

 


“Our AUTUMN.ANGEL adds a soft, apricot rosé hue for natural, rose gold, or apricot-toned blondes, while our COOL.ANGEL magnifies cool, ash shades while removing stubborn orange hues from the hair. Use our SUGARED.ANGEL for a creamy, vanilla beige to mute unwanted warmth and create luminous toffee tones, or stick to our CRYSTAL.ANGEL to enhance your existing colour while illuminating your strands with this unique clear, top coat.

Following our cult-favourite BLONDE.ANGEL treatment, our four newest ANGELS fit right into our BLONDE regimen for your at-home colour care to moisturise, enhance, restore shine, and refresh coloured or uncoloured hair. To use, simply cleanse the hair with the WASH of your choice and apply your desired COLOURING.ANGEL, leaving for 3-5 minutes before rinsing. You can use your ANGEL as often as you wish, as the pigments are designed to never build up on your hair!”

Show Us The Hair at ISSE2018!

This past Jan 26-29 was the International Salon and Spa Expo in Long Beach, CA.  This event convenes thousands of cosmetology professionals from around the world and is produced by the Professional Beauty Association: “is a non-profit that exists to elevate, unify and serve the beauty industry and the professionals who improve people’s lives.”

Co- owners D’Arcy Harrison and Lancer Forney-McMahon attended 2 days each. Both of them attended classes and presentations to further their skills in haircuts and haircolor. The energy of having that many pros in one area was exciting and overwhelming! So much to do and see!

D’Arcy attended “The Art of Technical Haircutting” by FHI and “Painting Balayage,” with #balaylama Candy Shaw. D’Arcy was methodical in her shopping for new items to amp up her  client experience in the salon for D’Arcy Hair Design.  She walked around the expo hall checking out all the booths on Saturday and came back after class on Sunday to pick up some new tools. She opted for a Sutra Beauty Infrared Blowdryer- “With Sutra’s Ionic Infrared Blow Dryer, infrared heat coats the hair strand deep inside the hair cuticle, heating from the inside of the hair shaft out, while protecting the outer layer of hair. ” D’Arcy also purchased a Hot Tools Curl Bar that uses a curl timer and a digital temperature readout as well as offering a more ergonomic experience for the stylist. To learn more about D’Arcy and request an appointment with her, visit her Website!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lancer attended “The Art of Razor Cutting and Color Movement” Hands-On class taught by CoCre8 duo Christopher Dove and John Simpson, and has been using techniques learned in this class on many of his clients, with much success!  He also attended a lecture about alopecia given by Jared Reynolds, Biomolecular Chemist, creator and founder of Zenagen Haircare, and is currently testing the Revolve system on his husband, with visible hair regrowth success already! After much learning, some entertainment was in order, and D’Arcy and Lancer enjoyed watching Ted Gibson and his team having fun with models onstage. Ted Gibson is the man behind Angelina Jolie’s hair and numerous other celebrities we’ve all seen on just about every magazine cover!

Day Two for Lancer was all about Wellness. Hair Guy Lancer, P.L.L.C. intends to stay working behind the chair for as long as he wants to, and toward that end, actively takes ownership of his health and body. What a treat to be able to learn from not just hairdressers but other professionals who   understand that our job is very physical, and that ergonomics, nutrition, medication, and other forms of self-care are crucial to our longevity in our industry! First was Healthy Haircutting by Guinness World Hair Cutting record breaker ClipperGuy Ivan Zoot. Ivan taught Lancer how to stay healthy behind the chair, during breaks, and how to deal with height differences between client and stylist, among other things! Lancer already meditates along with practicing Lo Jong mind training through a local Sangha, so he attended a meditation session that was very different (and will stick to his current methods, thank you very much!) but it was good to have a meditative space at the Expo! Lancer already cooks all of the food for himself and his husband at home, but is always looking for food preparation hacks. “Healthy Snacks for Hungry People, by Katrina Goldberg did not disappoint! Katrina showed Lancer how prepping more garlic than you need gives you “savings” for later in the week, and also affirmed that when you have things prepped at home, you’re way more inclined to eat at home as well as to use everything you’ve invested your hard labor into! Last but not least was all about not wrecking your body by using better office furniture, stretching, etc. To learn more about Lancer and request an appointment with him, visit his Website!

Another fun aspect to a convention of this type is the opportunity to interact with exciting hair color, hair tools and product companies selling deals and demonstrating techniques and products. We enjoyed seeing companies we work with in the salon such as Moroccan Oil, Olaplex, Pulp Riot, Pravana, Hot Tools, BABE extensions and many more.

We even ran into Seattle salon owner colleague, Daniel Keane (seen with D’Arcy far left), who owns Serenza Salon & Spa in Burien. He used to educate for us when we used a former color line and it was a joy to see him doing his thing demonstrating tools.

Staying up on current trends, education and technical info is the sign of strong hair designers who care about providing top notch service and quality results.
