Redken came to Andre Richard Salon to give an updated approach to balayage and babylight highlights. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC_2308.JPG

 

Balayage became known sometime in the 1970's and over the past 10 years has been a rising trend. We began teaching balayage and ombré techniques at ARS in 2010. Babylights is a foil technique that takes a lot of time but the results are natural like a babys blonde!

We believe that education is the foundaton of our success and keeps us the best salon in Philadelphia. Redken sent in a top educator from NYC. Arielle helped us with placement and also focused on which Redken lightener to use for the desired result. 

b2ap3_thumbnail_DSC_2281.JPG

The team focused on technique and instead of using live models we used professional mannequins to maintain the classroom atmosphere. We were able to ask questions and focus on the technique.

The best part of hands on is we get our hands in there and feel what we are learning.

Our rising talent is always encouraged to learn and jump in.

Hair color corrections are not for the stylist who is the faint of heart. Same goes for the person who needs the hair color correction. They take lots of time and can not be rushed. After all a correction is not a basic hair color service, they are carefully calculated and sometimes the desired result is not achieved in one visit. Sometimes a correction can take one process and sometimes they take several processes. Hair color corrections should always have a detailed consultation. Usually they are charged by the number of processes that it takes to obtain the desired result. The client should be prepared to disclose all the previous processing so the stylist can be fully equipped with the proper knowledge to perform the service successfully.

patricias palace ARS welcomes PR maven and social media gem Patricia Maristch to Expert Corner!

The @PiquedPR founder believes the world would be a better place with all things monogrammed and month long birthdays. 
You might recognize Patricia from her work with @MLFashionWeek and other exciting events around town. She surrounds herself with color and mixed patterns, ginger jars and loves to play hostess. 
 
 
 
 
 
Patricia visited the salon recently and saw Ryan - Senior Stylist. Here is what she had to say after!
 
I’ve kept my hair the same just about my whole life. Occasionally I’ll cut it shoulder length or get some highlights but it has never drastically changed. I figure if it works, why mess with it? Each season though I like a little refresh. You know, lighter for summer and darker for fall. To get my fall color on I stopped into Andre Richard Salon. It was my first time to the salon and it didn’t disappoint.

From Laverne Cox to Rose Byrne to Kim Kardashian, The Lob, short for long bob, continues to dominate the celebrity hair trend for 2016. 

look book fall hair trends promote

 According to Drea Richard Baldini, owner of Andre Richard Salon in Philadelphia, this versatile style is popular choice among customers. “Everyone loves [the lob] because it can be swept up in knot, or worn sleek,” she said.  “All hair types and styles can wear it beautifully.” But, be sure to hone in on the kind of lob that works best for you before going under the shears. “Make sure you bring a picture of what you want so your stylist knows exactly what you are looking for,” Baldini said. “Sometimes a client uses different terminology and the result can be disastrous.”

Summer Fun Wreaking Havoc on Your Hair?

These FREE Pro Tips from Andre Richard Salon in Philadelphia will bring some much needed relief as we enter into the dog days of summer 2016.

  • According to Vogue Magazine, the Boho Beachy look is going strong for summer. Celebs like Stella Maxwell and Olivia Palermo rock this look:http://bit.ly/29YyDCz

  • PRO TIP: Here’s how you can get that same look: Wash and condition hair. Then braid it wet. Thick braids for loose waves. Smaller braids for tighter beachy look.  When you wake up in the morning, you will be summer ready!

  • No more towels. Wrap hair in a worn-in-tee.

    • PRO TIP: Let’s face it, frizz is here to stay through Labor Day. Find your most natural curl pattern by NOT towel drying your hair with a traditional bath towel. The fibers grab at your hair and cause frizz.

  • PRO TIP: Wash and condition hair as you normally would. Wrap it in a worn tee shirt. This type of cloth does not have tight knitting. When hair begins to dry shake it out with your fingers. This will greatly reduce frizz levels.

  • Give your locks some TLC. Hot showers, tight ponytails, these can damage your hair.

    • PRO TIP: We’ve said it before and we will say it again! Cold rinse finish. A hot shower can damage your locks. Seal cuticles by rinsing with cold water.

    • Also, skip the brush for a few days. Comb your hair with your fingers using a bit of conditioner, something you already have in the house. We also recommend softer ponytails. We tend to pull our hair up off our necks in the summer. But a super-tight pony could promote damage to your hair.

watermelon haircolorHow does one choose the best hair color idea? Are you a college student in freshman year and can get away with pink and blue ombré or are you starting a conservative role at a financial institute and not a sign of fashion colors anywhere in that office? There are so many trendy hair color combinations and techniques (balayage and free hand hair painting are going nowhere).

Using different color pallettes one can walk-in to a salon with one hair color that was a gorgeous cool balayage and leave with a gorgeous deep red balayage. Sometimes with just a single process. The sky really is the limit. 

Good Housekeeping has some cool ideas that target lots of areas. From Philadelphia student to Philadelphia CEO we have you covered!
