Meet Our New Team Member…aka Air Purifier: “Lil’ Fauci”

In our daily work to fight Covid19 in the salon we have obtained a medical grade air filtration system from MEDIFYAIR.com . The MA -112 V 2.0 filters up to 5000 sq ft and is able to filter out the micron level of the virus and other harmful air pollutants. Our space is 1010 sq.ft and are happy that every 15 min— 1225 sq ft of air is purified. This means if every independent service provider inside the Emerson Salon location takes 15 min to disinfect between clients that the entire salon of air will be cleaned by the time the next client arrives.

We decided since this NEW TEAM MEMBER is so integral to what we do to stay safe, wear masks and disinfect all tools and high touch points based on CDC guidance and Dr Fauci’s expertise—- that it only seemed right to honor Dr. Fauci’s knowledge and service with a special NAME for our new machine! NOTE: We have powerful HVAC systems in our location but this just adds a little more peace of mind for providers and clients alike.

Welcome “Lil’ Fauci” to the team of pros that work inside our location!

We are taking hair services BY APPOINTMENT ONLY– book with your selected provider through the STYLISTS Button on the emersonsalon.com home page!

The Kevin Murphy Experience


THE KEVIN MURPHY EXPERIENCE

From time to time, we have an opportunity to have educators from our favorite brands give us some inspiring styling tutorials and advice. This week, Sara (an educator for Kevin Murphy International kevinmurphy.com.au) came in from Austin, TX to help us strengthen our finishing skills with Kevin Murphy products. The Kevin Murphy range is based on skincare and has high performance results.

Our model,Kenna, has longer, fine slightly wavy hair. D’Arcy prepped her by detoxing her hair twice with Maxi.Wash (an alpha hydroxy  detox shampoo- not a clarifier) and followed it with Angel.Wash and Angel.Masque.

 

After a quick towel dry ballerina bun, Sara applied Leave.In Repair. Then she used Body.Mass on all the roots to assist in plumping and lift at the base. To enhance movement to the hair, she added Motion.Lotion and dried on a high heat low speed setting and kept squeezing the hair until 85% dry

To finish, Sara sprayed Bedroom.Hair that helps with some hold as well as aiding in keeping the hair fluffy and full.

Sara then moved on to create a second look on Kenna. She used a 2.25″ clipless curling iron to create soft bend to large sections of hair. The key tip was not to wrap the hair completely but only in 1.5 rotations and continuing the rolling action (back and forth) for up  to 30 seconds. She then finished with quick shots of Doo.Over to help emphasize the softness of the look.

 

Our second model, Karen, has naturally wavy, frizzy hair. Sara prepped her with Smooth Again Wash and Rinse to help lay down the cuticle to eliminate frizz. Then she applied AntiGravity all over and then a tad of Motion Lotion on the ends. She then used small clips to prop up the roots towards the top and then used applied the Texture Net over the entire head. She then placed Karen under a Medium Heat hood dryer for 20 min. Voila! Controlled texture with no frizz.

See the result below!

What the Trend?! Summer 2017

Now is the time of year in Seattle where the rainy days arrive less frequently, the leaves come out and people smile a little brighter!

With the likelihood of hairstyles being ruined by precipitation decreasing- its time to think about fun haircuts and hairstyles that are simple but also,  on trend.

 Longer Hair 

Above are a set of medium to long length haircuts and hairstyles from some of the runways-gone are the heavily layered hairstyles and razored textures and gaining popularity are the “casually done” looks. The basic haircut to most of these styles is hair length no more than the middle or top of the shoulder blades with soft, blended texture on the ends to emphasize movement. Framing the face by the cheekbones is out and the longer contouring of the hair by the collarbone is in. These hairstyles mix and match 4 types of styles: 1) wet, slick look 2) controlled volume 3) soft waves and 4) messy braids. Middle and deep parts are still heavily used with a little root lift to remove flatness. Looking to recreate these style?

Recommended Tools: A large wave hot iron, a flat iron, a fine toothed comb, a wide toothed comb, and bobby pins.

Recommended Products: Kevin Murphy Young.Again with immortelle oil for shine and moisture. Kevin Murphy Doo.Over to help emphasize messy braids in finer hair with backcombing. MoroccanOil Strong Hold Hairspray for style hold.

Medium Length

Bobs and “lobs” are also very chic and are quicker and easier to style during the hotter months. Again, heavily layered shapes are out and blended, shattered texture on the ends of the general shapes is showing up on students, hipsters and mature professionals alike. Some chose to leave the front long and some opt for a rounded, Brigitte Bardot style fringe that creates blended wisps by the face.

Recommended Tools:  A tapered, clipless curling iron and a wide toothed comb.

Recommended Products:  Kevin Murphy Body Builder and/or MoroccanOil Beach Wave Mousse.

Textured Hair

For natural, textured hair allowing your wave and curl to be emphasized with height a high ponytail can be made into a fun, casual updo in seconds. Gone are the days of stick straight hair with a flatiron! Show off your true self by emphasizing how your hair WANTS to be.

Recommended Tools: Wide toothed comb, bobby pins, boar bristle brush and a large, fabric covered and strong elastic.

Recommended Products: MoroccanOil Original Treatment, Kevin Murphy Killer Curls, and Kevin Murphy Session Spray.

Short Hair- Feminine

This year, many female identifying individuals are daring to go short! Both versions emphasize fullness and movement and emphasize bone structure and elongate and enhance the perception of the neck and décolleté. It’s not just flat short Mia Farrow pixie cuts anymore!

Recommended Tools: Blow dryer and diffuser.

Recommended Products: Kevin Murphy Hair Resort and MoroccanOil Root Boost.

Short Hair – Masculine

For male identifying peeps, the spring/summer looks are trending towards more classic shapes and styling.  Deep side parts and combed in looks are defining everyday and formal looks for the gentlemen.

Recommended Tools: Fine toothed comb.

Recommended Products: Kevin Murphy Super.Goo (strong hold) or Free.Hold (mild, grooming creme.)

For a more modern look, quiffs are being paired with tapered layers on the side or an extreme bald fade with clippers.

Recommended Tools: Fine Toothed Comb.

Recommended Products: Kevin Murphy Night.Rider (matte wax texturizer- strong hold) or Reuzel Red pomade (high sheen, heavy hold).
