Taboo: Not Your Ordinary Salon & Spa!

Taboo Salon and Spa is not your ordinary salon and spa, we promote relaxation and cater to all sexes and ages but our look is on a different scale. This salon is all about keeping it young from our trendy decor to the music choice which consist of what’s playing on the radio today, or the owner’s favorite which is old school hip-hop, now we can’t just completely ignore the spa aspect so we do play spa music in the spa areas and massage rooms but most of it is all about keeping it funky. Taboo like any other business was a carefully thought out process, which formed into a very strong structure much like a pyramid. Three years ago our structure was finalized, at the top of our pyramid lays the boss lady Crystal who has spent 15 years of her life educating herself about the beauty industry. Crystal also spent most of her time perfecting and planning what her vision would be, when she opened her salon for the public. Crystal has proven the definition of girl power time and time again, as a young woman who did not come from riches opening up a salon might seem impossible. Although she has had many obstacles including health that have tested her urge to succeed, she has never let that break her or separate her from the goal. Crystal consistently makes her salon the place that offers a voice to those dealing with illnesses that are often ignored by the general public, by introducing her staff and clients to events and charities that continue to raise awareness. She inspires her staff to break barriers and prove our strength in the business world as women. Holding her up is the salon coordinator named Katherine which will be the first and last person seen when entering the salon, she brings forth Crystal’s vision as clearly as her name… lol. Then we have our team of stylists and massage therapists holding her up which consist of 4 massage therapists who are Jessica, Shawna, Alexis and Becki and one stylist Sarah which is often joined by Crystal in our salon area. These are the girls who make sure you walk out of here loving your service and wanting to come back again and again like an addiction, but a good one like coffee. The next blog posts will slowly introduce everyone individually and speak on behalf of the amazing work and great contribution they bring into Taboo so stay tuned for our next blog. Toddles!

 

Keep Your Locks Looking Amazing this Summer!

Summer Hair Care
Summertime, and the living is easy…but not for your hair! Hot summer days can wipe out shine, change your color to a brassy hue and leave your locks feeling dry. Not to mention, high humidity, UV beach rays, chlorine and saltwater can dry out your hair even more!

Get a haircut. It’s always best to get a trim before summer, since the strong heat can cause extra damage to your hair, so its important to remove those dead ends. Most hair stylists generally recommend getting a trim every 6-8 weeks, but you may want to wait a little longer during the summer.

Get a conditioning treatment. Your hair stylist can recommend when it’s best to get a deep conditioning treatment, but most likely after a few beach trips your ends will be ready for one. The next time you are in the salon getting a trim, make sure to ask for one.

Lighten up your locks. Freshen up your brassy hue with a few more highlights. Even though your hair my gain some natural highlights while you’re out enjoying the sun, you stylist can add a few more in to avoid the dull look.

Scrub it out. If you’ve been out in the sun, you can give your hair the nourishment it needs at home, between salon trips. Choose a hydrating shampoo and conditioner for the summer months. You may also want to consider using a clarifying shampoo a few times a week to help reduce the build-up of chlorine and other harmful chemicals your hair has to endure.

Brush with care. Hair can be the most fragile when it’s wet, so don’t rip a brush through it after swimming. Use some detangler spray on it, and then use a wide-tooth comb to minimize breakage.

Wear a hat. Not into wearing a baseball cap while you’re outside? Try sporting a headband, turban, fedora or another cute summer hat. Find something fashionable and fun, while protecting those locks!

Your stylist can look at your locks, and give you professional recommendations for what you need for the something months ahead!

Winter Hair & Skin Care Tips

Winter Hair Care- Taboo Salon Quakertown PA

During the harsh cold months of winter, it’s crucial to take extra care of your hair. Cold weather can create havoc for your beautiful locks. Here are some simple tips for taking care of your hair during the coldest season of the year.

Adapt your hair care to the weather changes.

Look for a shampoo that will help keep your hair strong and healthy during the cold winter months. If you use the right treatment you’ll avoid it becoming a bigger issue. Look to buy shampoos and conditioners that focus on protecting and healing your dry hair and provide more moisture than you normally use.

Use a deep conditioning treatment. OFTEN.

You can purchase a hot oil or deep conditioning treatment to use at home. Although, it’s recommended that you visit your salon and ask your stylist to do a deep conditioning treatment. At Taboo Salon and Spa we have a a variety of deep conditioning treatments for all hair types and problems. Contact us today to schedule an appointment! Not only will a deep conditioning treatment help with dryness but it will also help with that annoying winter static and knots.

Avoid leaving the house with wet hair, and cover up!

In winter, it’s crucial that you dry your hair before you step out of the house into the cold air. It will pay off to wake up a tad earlier to blow dry your hair or let your hair air dry the night before. Going out in the cold winter weather with wet hair damages your ends and makes your hair even more dry and brittle. Make sure to cover up also. If you are going to be outside, especially in extremely cold temperatures or wine, use a cute scarf to protect your hair from the elements. Surprisingly, sun can be just as damaging in winter as it is in summer!

Don’t forget your skin!

Just like your hair, your skin will suffer just as much during the cold winter months. Remember to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize! Try lathering your feet and hands with your favorite lotion and put cotton gloves and cottons socks on while watching TV or something else relaxing. Your hands and feet will love you for it! Also, your face can get very dry and chapped—which is definitely not cute. Make sure you are using a rich face moisturizer, and not the same one you use in spring and summer months.
