Word of Mouth Video Shoot with Whitney Peyton

Word of Mouth Video - Whitney Peyton

I hope everyone got the chance to check out Quakertown rapper, Whitney Peyton’s new music video,“Word of Mouth.” The video speaks on the artist’s feeling towards {what she feels} is the “bad mouthing aura” that exists in the music industry. The video expresses different personalities in a unique way by only featuring lips with creative art throughout the entire video mimicking the song lyrics. The Taboo girls were the masterminds behind all of the different dramatic lips that were created. Crystal, our “boss lady” was actually one of the artists responsible for these cool funky lips, proving her versatility once again!

Speaking about being versatile, Taboo’s On the Fly service brings you the luxury of pampering while in the comfort of your own home or facility. Taboo only charges an extra $20 fee for travel (may increase a bit more if travel is far). The service is perfect for all events including: weddings, birthdays, video shoots, and photoshoots — these are just a few examples of what the service covers but the possibilities are endless and we cater to all events! Also, the services are not limited. We will perform any of the services listed in our brochure outside of the salon except for color processing.

The Taboo team is always excited for the On the Fly services. It’s a fun experience where we are able to treat our clients like royalty as if we were in the comfort of our salon. I will start to speak more on our salon services in my next blog…stay tuned. Toodles!

Organic Spray Tanning

Norvell Organic Spray Tan at Taboo - Quakertown PA

I am eager to begin introducing all of our unique and awesome services, but what better time than now that summer is fast approaching to talk about our latest edition, organic spray tanning. Taboo is very big on health, remember? So of course we use the latest, safest and healthiest products for tanning which all come from Norvell. There is no point in submitting your skin to the harsh rays of a black light or even worse… the scorching sun which can cause skin cancer just to reach that summer glow. Organic airbrush tanning has many benefits and seems to be the most effective method, so I did a little research for you guys and according to a site called Fantasy Tan, airbrush tanning has a high quality in realism. The price in airbrush tanning is usually about the same as its competitors and it just so happens to be the healthiest form of tanning that exists at the moment. The only thing to watch for is the upkeep that means following the correct procedures to maintain the tan for its usual time which is about a week. Taboo has created take home forms for our tanning clients to ensure that they are informed on the best ways to keep their tan as long as possible, we also provide information on what to do before the service is performed. The most important part after receiving a tan with us is to stay away from showering for about 6-12 hours, so that the color sticks as best as possible. You might feel weird but after the first shower the excess bronzer will wash off leaving you with that beautiful natural summer glow. The service itself is super easy and fun, it lasts about 5 minutes per coat and usually two coats is enough to reach that deep tan and one coat is enough for a light glow. Sarah is the stylist most advanced in preforming this service as well as the owner Crystal. Also, all Taboo employees will soon be skilled enough to perform the service. Exfoliating the skin with our homemade body scrub before tanning is highly recommended, to wash off any dead skin lingering that could interfere with gaining that tan, silky-smooth appearance. The Taboo girls love questions, especially if it’s about our newest services, so feel free to contact us via email or phone with any questions you might have before booking an appointment to tan. I will be talking more in detail about our salon services in our next blog so stay tuned… toodles.

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!
