Seattle Mom Prom May 18th – Don’t Miss Out!

We wanted to take a chance to let our blog readers in on an event that’s near and dear to our hearts, The Seattle Mom Prom!

What is the Mom Prom? It’s an all ladies 21 and over event that is put on every year not only as an excuse to party-down, but also to raise money for postpartum support!
The event also helps to showcase local businesses that donate their services in the silent auctions, and to also just celebrate mom’s and ladies in general!
You don’t have to be a mom to come to the prom, but it is ladies-only. Need a fun night out that isn’t the usual bar scene? Check out the mom prom! Tickets are $25-$35 in advance or $40 at the door and your ticket includes the following:

Hair Myths Demystified

April Fool’s Day has long since passed, but we thought of this blog around the idea of dispelling any foolish rumors and myths about hair. Here are the top hair myths that we’ve been debunking most recently in the salon.

Myth #1: Cutting your hair more frequently will help it grow faster. Grow faster? Not the case, after all your hair grows out of your head so why would trimming the ends make it grow faster? It’s a bit of an optical illusion! When your hair goes too long without a trim, the ends become more wispy, thin, and spit. When this happens, and if you have extra long hair for example, you ends could be right above your elbow, but they are so thin compared to the rest of your hair that the weight line looks like it’s ending about an inch or two higher. When you get a trim it evens out all those wispy ends and creates a stronger line at the end of your hair, which can actually make it look longer in some cases! We recommend a trim every 4-6 weeks if you want to maintain your current style and length, or every 8-12 if you’re growing it out.

Myth: Skipping Haircuts Will Help Your Hair Grow Faster

A lot of you have probably at one point or another gotten adventurous and cropped your hair on the shorter side, only to spend years growing it back out. So how did your hair fare during that long grow out period? Was it  in fabulous condition, or feeling wispy and tangled? If it was the latter, then it probably was in part to you neglecting your regular haircuts while growing it out. You're probably thinking that cutting...
