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!

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!

Stylists That Have Your Back: What Makes Pinup Salon Special

You know the drill. You’ve been getting your hair cut and colored at the salon Downtown for years, with results that are just ‘okay’, a price tag that’s a teensy bit higher than you’d like to pay for those results, and a lackluster experience overall.

Screen Shot 2013-08-27 at 5.30.37 PMIck. The experience of getting your hair done is supposed to be better. You’re supposed to love your hair when you walk out of the salon, tossing it over your shoulders or relishing the feel of the wind. Your trip in to see a stylist should really end with great results, and maybe be something you enjoy and even look forward to. I mean, you do have to live with and love your hair for a couple of months to come.

We may be a bit biased, but there are some things about Pinup Salon that makes us special, and we feel we stand out from your typical salon in a few awesome ways:

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...
