Think Pink!

Most people are either too shy or too scared to do a dramatic pop color in their hair (for anything other than a party or Halloween) but it's a great way to stand out in a crowd. Speaking from personal experience, I have had the Roy G. Biv of hair color through out my life (IE: every shade of the rainbow). But as I started to get into "real" adulthood (early twenties you can still squeeze out of the adult category) my pop color became non-existent. I was too worried about what people would say about a 28 year old with green and blue hair. Could I really sit in a business meeting and be straight faced when my hair looked like a peacock? As it turns out, I could...

Granted, I have it easier because I work at a salon. But I feel like pop colored hair is no different then tattoos or eccentric clothing and within reason, should have a place in the everyday business world.

That being said, we had an amazing chica come into the salon today to try out a vibrant shade of pink. She was in the very capable hands of Morgan, who has had a few clients request pop-colors in their 'dos before. And it turned out awesome...

She was thrilled and I was happy to see another "adult" take the chance on some color.

Happy (Almost) Birthday!

I cannot believe that we are soon approaching our one year anniversary at BoomSwagger Salon. On Friday April 2nd we will officially cross the one year mark here on the Hip Strip. The past twelve months have been an amazing time for our entire staff and everyones hard work has certainly paid off in a busy schedule and an amazing clientele.


In celebration, we are going to reinstate the "Recession Special" on Mondays. You can get your hair done by an Advanced Stylist at Stylist prices...which means almost 20% less then you would regularly pay. This only applies to specific stylists, so please ask for the "Recession Special" when you are booking.

We are also going to give you 10% off any of our products when you buy three or more throughout the month of April.

It's our birthday, but you're getting all the presents :)

New Products and March Makeup Madness!

After a much needed break, we are back on the blog! The big news this month is the new line of Catwalk Curlesque products. You may be familiar with the previous "Curls Rock" line from Catwalk which had the devotion of most every curly-haired female I know. However, Catwalk has started to restructure and rework their entire line and Curls Rock has transformed into Curlesque. The packaging has a much more refined look and the products are better than ever.

They kept the formulas on their best sellers like the Curl Amplifier the same (I think they would have had a riot on their hands otherwise), but added some fancy science-y stuff to some of their new styling products. For example, they now have two mousses in the collection which have "Total Style Recall Technology". In layman's terms, you can scrunch your second day hair back to the original style without the use of extra products, water, etc.

Our manager Crystal's perm is looking more full and less frizzy with the new products. And even though it's been a good 20 years since she used mousse, she's already purchased the Strong Mousse and is carrying it around in her purse in case of hair emergencies.

To get the full rundown on the new product line check out Tigi's website.

Also, this month is MARCH MAKEUP MADNESS!!! Which means any of the awesome Bedhead makeup that we carry can be snatched up for a steal. When you buy any three or more products you get 10% off the whole sha' bang. (and who needs only one eye shadow anyway?)
