You know that your trusted Pinup professionals care deeply about you and the products you use to keep your hair radiant and healthy. Read on for a closer peek at the fabulous products we carry and learn why we feel as passionately about them as we do.

Unite:

If Marissa Marino and Riawna Capri (stylists to the stars) use Unite products on their A-list clients, why should your famous tresses be treated to anything less? What makes Unite products pass Pinup’s strict quality test of superiority? The products are free of sulfates, paraben, gluten, sodium chloride, DEA, MEA, and are safe for colored hair. What that means is that only high quality, natural products are applied to your marvelous mane and those harsh additives found in many hair product lines are avoided. Oh, on top of that? The products simply work! At Pinup, we’re more concerned with products that get the job done than we are with brand names, price point or who is styling who. We just want products that do what they say they will do, and Unite’s great at delivering on their promises!

Curly Hair Is In! Know How To Care For It

“Curly hair is not a trend, it’s a lifestyle.” That’s the word on the street lately, and we are finding many of our clients in agreement and overjoyed at the recent embracing of their natural wave and curl textures. Over 65% of the population has some form of curl in their hair, so why are so many of us fighting against it? Here are some tips on caring for your curly locks, to keep your hair looking and feeling fantastic year round.

Start with a curly-centric haircut. Did you know that curly hair should be cut differently than straight or wavy hair? There’s an art – and actually a certification – to the technique, and luckily your stylist here at Pinup knows how to do it masterfully! Our staff has a unique passion for curl texture, and we like to respect your hair as much as we respect you!

Hair Product Shopping: It’s Not As Easy as Heading to the Drugstore

Despite the perceived convenience and low price, it might not be the best choice to do your hair product shopping at your neighborhood Bartell’s Drugstore. You could be in for a lot of wasted time and money if things go wrong, or at very least, a bad hair day.

It is really important to become educated on your hair and its special needs.

Hair isn’t generic or one-size-fits-all in its care. Hair is a lot like skin – it’s unique to you, with its own needs and moods. Johnson’s Baby Shampoo might have been the ‘no tears’ solution that your mom used when you were in diapers, but the wrong shampoo these days can really bring on the water works (or at least the desire to cry).
