Keratin Complex by Coppola = A Hair Smoothing & Reconditioning Revolution

The results from the Keratin Smoothing Complex are amazing! I have to say, as a stylist for seven years, I was skeptical of this product when it was first introduced to me.

How Laser Hair Removal (aka ‘Permanent Hair Reduction’) Works

After more than 14 years in the hair removal business, I’m happy to report that today’s lasers offer a wonderful option for those looking to eliminate hair from unwanted areas with a lot less pain then electrolysis (which while permanent, can sometimes require 15-30 visits for best results). That said, we do not tell anyone that it will remove every single hair for ever and ever. Instead, we tell our clients that they may need a few touch up treatments annually. There are things such as hormones, age, pregnancy, stress and medications that can influence future hair growth. As always, each case is unique, so if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at the spa.

Why We Buy OPI (Hint: OPI Makes a Great Green, Healthy, Non-Toxic Nail-Polish)

With so many nail polishes available today it can be overwhelming when trying to choose the best one. Why do I choose to use OPI Nail Polish. I have used many different nail polishes available in the nail industry. Aside of fun quirky names, I have discovered from experience that OPI nail polish is one of the most durable and longest lasting nail polishes available. OPI nail polish stays on in some cases for at least up to two weeks! Since 2006, OPI has reformulated its entire line of Nail Lacquers, Nail Treatments, and Nail Hardeners to eliminate DBP (dibutyl phthalate) and Toluene.
