Just say no to parabens!

It seems everywhere we look, labels carry the phrase “Paraben Free”. So the opposite (and likely not so good for ya) would be Paraben Full”? Paraben schmaraben, what is a girl to do? There are so many warnings and things to be concerned with in regards to our health and exposure to various chemicals and substances. Sometimes it seems less exhausting to plead ignorance and keep our pretty little heads blissfully in the sand.

However, with just enough exposure to that sand and parabens our pretty little heads will no longer look so good when potentially the rest our body is fighting cancer or ill effects due to exposure to toxic ingredients.

Sourcing Safe and Local Hair Products

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!

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).

Dry Shampoo To The Rescue!

You've probably at some point, or frequently, explained to your stylist that your hair gets greasy quickly, and maybe they've told you to try a dry shampoo, but you still haven't. Our question is, why not?! Dry shampoo is probably one of the best products to keep on hand for at home and travel. The number one use for dry shampoo is to spray it at the root of your hair when it's feeling oily or...

Be Nice To Your Hair!!!

It's summer (for those outside of the PNW anyway)! That means it's the season of highlights and brightening up, and therefore putting a little more damage on your hair. It's also the season of being out in the elements, mostly the sun and windy, beach air! Even if you don't color your hair, these things might leave your hair not feeling it's best, but you know can refresh and rejuvenate it in just 20-30 minutes, right? Let...

Never learned how to use hairspray? You’re not alone!

With prom and wedding season upon us here at Pinup, I wanted to talk a little about our Pravana Super Shape Hairspray! If you are anything like I used to be, the idea of using hairspray day to day sounds ridiculous. My past experiences with hairspray always ended up in helmet hair, so the idea that you could still have soft flexible styles with the use of hairspray sounded foreign to me! The keys to success with...
