    In honor of July 4th we want to celebrate freedom, from FRIZZ!

    Come into either of our locations by July 4th and receive $100 off any of our anti-frizz, and curl reducing smoothing treatments! Not already familiar with them? Here’s the scoop!

    Pravana Perfection Smoothout – Normally $250
    The Pravana Perfection Smoothout treatment uses natural amino acids to smooth and defrizz the hair, adding shine to every hair type! This treatment will relax the hair a bit, but is primarily meant to smooth and defrizz the hair. It works fantastic on hair that is straight or wavy, which still feels frizzy even after blow drying. Clients who have some grey hair, which is wiry and unruly, this is also very effective for. Perfection is also so mild that it can be applied without gloves! There is no wait time after the treatment, so you can leave the salon and wash your hair the next day. It lasts 8-16 weeks, but is only guaranteed when treated at home with the Perfection shampoo and conditioner! This chemical free and TRULY formaldehyde free treatment is the healthiest option on the market for smoothing your hair.

    Coppola Keratin Complex – Normally $300
    The Coppola Keratin Complex will smooth the hair, eliminate frizz, add shine, color protection, as well as reduce curls! The hair is much more manageable for day to day styling, and in the case of one client, took her drying and ironing time from 45 to just 15 minutes! With two formulas to choose from (one for virgin and deposit-only color treated hair, and another for lightened or foiled hair) the treatment can be applied the same day as a color service, but it’s recommended to wait 2 weeks after the treatment to color the hair again. After the treatment, the hair must remain straight and moisture-free for 72 hours, but after the waiting period you can expect to keep your hair smooth and frizz free for 4-6 months! The treatment will last longer when maintained with our Pearatin line shampoos and conditioners!

    Keratin Fusion – Normally $250
    The Keratin Fusion treatment offers permanent curl reduction and smoothing to the hair. It will take the coarsest, frizzy, unruly locks and leave them relaxed or straightened, shiny, and smooth! There are two options for this treatment – maximum curl reduction, or slight reduction, depending on your desired end results. The treatment imparts keratin protein to the exterior and interior of the hair shaft, making it a permanent treatment while the other two only coat the exterior. Keratin fusion is only for hair that is 50% lightened or less, but is the most effective of our smoothing services for those who want straight hair for as long as possible!

    Call your stylist at Pinup to discuss the best treatment for your hair’s needs, and start feeling the freedom from frizz!

    Happy Memorial Day! I’m sure most of you have taken advantage of the many Memorial Day sales happening this weekend, but do you know how you can save money year round on every visit you make to Pinup Salon? We have a fabulous loyalty rewards program that we offer for free to all of our clients. This program is our way of giving back to the clients who support us through repeat visits, new client referrals, use of professional products and more. As a rewards member, you can earn cash to spend in the salon towards any service, one of 6 ways.

    #1 Earn points just for coming in for your regular services -cuts, colors, foils, manicures, etc. Each time you receive a service, you get a credit of points to your rewards card, equivalent to the amount of money you spent on your services that day. Once you have accrued 400 points, your account will receive an automatic credit of $25, which you can spend at your next service appointment, or save up for a rainy day. There is no limit to how many times you can earn these credits, and your points and cash earned for points never expire.

    #2 Use professional products! Every time you come into the salon and stock up on at least $60 of retail products, whether it be shampoo, conditioner, Pearatin serum, hairspray, or even a great piece of jewelry, you’ll earn a $10 rewards credit to be used on your next visit, or you can bank it for later use.

    #3 Refer your friends, family, co-workers, your barista, your bartender, people you meet on the bus – anyone and everyone! For every referral you send us, your rewards account gets ANOTHER $10 credit to be spent right away, or to be saved for later.

    #4 Join us for any service on the day of your birthday and save $20 that day! We’re open 7 days per week, and who doesn’t love to look good on their birthday? If your birthday is on Christmas Day or any other day we happen to be closed, you can come in the day before or the day after and still enjoy this savings. Everyone deserves a treat for their own personal holiday, even if it’s just a shampoo and style, or a relaxing Shellac manicure! :)

    #5 Other promotions, exclusive for rewards members, are sent to your email address, with more great ways to save on products or services being featured for the month. Keep your eyes peeled for these notices to maximize your rewards membership. These promotions can also be a great way to refer new clients to us!

    #6 We offer free and discounted services at special happy hour events hosted in the salons once every month or two. This is just another way for us to show you how much we appreciate you, plus we love getting to socialize and have fun with a bunch of clients at once! If you haven’t made it to our happy hour events yet, you’ll want to check them out! We have a blast!

    So what’s the catch? Nothing except that you continue being a valued Pinup client and that you allow us to email you 1-3 times per month. We hate spam as much as you do, and we would NEVER share your email address with anyone! All we want to do is reward all our lovely clients for being loyal to Pinup Salon! Simple. Straightforward.

    So if you aren’t already enjoying the loyalty rewards program here at Pinup, be sure to ask your stylist to get you enrolled right away!

    More importantly, we also wish to acknowledge how grateful we are for all who have given their lives for the protection of our nation. We are so lucky to have the freedoms we enjoy, and those freedoms would not be possible without the brave men and women who stand and fight on our behalf. May peace be with those who have fallen, and their families.

    Being a hairstylist opens a lot of doors that would normally be locked to most, but battling frizz is a door I’ve never been able to keep unlocked for long. When I say long, what I mean is until the moment my hair gets wet, whether it be from showering or from the daily drizzle we know here in Seattle as rain! You can imagine my ongoing frustration, especially if you dislike your frizz as much as I dislike mine.

    I have two words for you…Pravana Perfection.

    PP, as I lovingly call it, completely gets rid of my frizz and reduces my tight ethnic curls to the beautiful looser curls I’ve always wanted. Now, understand, I have been straightening my hair for as long as I’ve been able to hold a blow dryer, and I still love wearing it straightened sometimes. However, I want the option to wear my natural curl as well, without looking like a total frizz ball, and what PP offers me is the ability to do just that! It won’t leave your hair stick straight or lifeless. It just smooths the surface hairs that can be more unruly and whatever your starting texture is (ultra-curly like me, or slightly wavy), it will reduce slightly to make the hair shinier, more manageable, and faster to dry and style. The other amazing (and maybe my favorite) thing about Pravana Perfection is the fact that there are no harsh chemicals and truly, sincerely (I promise!) NO formaldehyde in the product, nor is any emitted during or after the application process. Instead of breaking your hair down with chemicals, PP uses amino acids to smooth out the “S” pattern in the hair, by slightly stretching the hair’s natural bonds, rather than breaking them entirely (think traditional relaxers and Japanese straighteners). What I love about the treatment is how versatile it is and how many different hair types it’s good for. Over-processed hair suddenly looks shiny and healthy. Curly hair is still curly, but loses its poof factor! Blow drying time is cut in half, and minimal flat ironing is required if you still want totally straight hair. Many of my clients can give up the flat iron all together, and get the sleek look with just a blow dryer and a paddle brush. If your hair is really curly like mine, this treatment will give you the looser waves you’ve always dreamed of.

    Now the big question…How much does this miracle treatment cost???
    The Perfection service runs $250 which my seem steep, especially in this economy, but the treatment last anywhere from 2-4 months depending on hair growth and home maintenance. If your going to spend your hard earned money on such an amazing treatment…I beg you please spend that little bit of extra money to take care of your hair at home! Pravana makes a uniquely formulated smoothing shampoo and conditioner designed to help prolong the life of your treatment as long as possible, and the shampoo/conditioner combo retails for only $40.

    The one common misconception clients have about Perfection is that it straightens the hair. It WILL NOT, I repeat WILL NOT permanently straighten the hair. What it will do is eliminate frizz, make the hair super shiny, cut your styling time in half, and make you happier with your hair than you maybe have been all your life…at least that’s what it did for me!

    If you want the key to unlocking the door to health, happy, frizz-free hair, come to Pinup Salon and we’ll make you a copy! 😀
