Dry Hair Remedy

Taking it to the next level: Kerastase Nutritive

Dry hair requires a lot of our attention. It’s dull, brittle and hard to detangle. The condition depends on a variety of factors such as genetics, or daily habits. Blow-drying, ill-suited products or repeated coloring are all factors that can contribute to hair sensitization. Because of these many different causes, there are several types of dry hair.

Introducing the new and improved Kerastase Nutritive line. More premium, more modern, more iconic. Irisome: for normal to dry hair. Magistral: dry to severly dry. Protocole immunite: all levels of dryness. With the invention of long-lasting nutrition, Kérastase Nutritive acts on both the cause of hair nutrition loss—oxidation—as well as on the consequences—dryness. The Nutritive line offers different levels of haircare repair for dry hair. The first level nutrition Nutritive Irisome is ideal for normal to dry hair. For very dry and sensitized hair, the Magistral line is perfect and will protect against heat tools.
Key technologies:
Glucose: delivers an energic boost of nutrition
Proteins: restore nutritive deficiencies; nourish and soften
Lipids: create a shiled to protect hair from drying out Iris
Rhizome Extract: protects against oxidation
Ask one of our in-salon experts to determine the level of your hair! We’ll see you soon. xoxo.

Bio Seaweed Gel UV Nail Colour

Last week we just started offering a new line of nail polish, Bio Seaweed Gel. Very similar to the well known Shellac brand, Bio Seaweed Gel polish can last up to 2+ weeks. Bio Seaweed Gel is the “Healthier Gel” as the polishes contain no formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, BHA, or solvents.
Recently they introduced the “Cosmos Collection”, a line of polishes that are “temperature” or “mood” colour changing. Let me tell you, I have never received so many compliments on a nail polish colour before in my life! As your hand temperature changes, so does the polish. It honestly even amazes me sometimes, stepping outside on a cold winter day turns my nails a much more darker shade. When coming inside, my nails have now turned ombre as I start to warm up(definitely my favourite part). Then before you know it it’s back to it’s normal super cute sparkly pink shade! People are often surprised by the heat reactive colour, especially when they notice the change as I’m doing their manicure! Unique to it’s kind, as soon as they catch a glimpse of the “magic” they want to have it done as well.
The polish itself is great quality as well. I find that I can apply 2 coats and it has great nail coverage. The polish typically lasts 10-14 days, I have even seen people keep it up to 3 weeks no chipping!(Probably by not doing any dish washing though!) The polish only requires a quick 5 min soak off, with zero dehydration, staining, or weakening of your own nails! Bio Seaweed Gel has become one of my top favourite nail picks!

Did you know that it has been scientically proven that you can slow down the aging process  up to 10 years by taking care of your skin? During these cold winter months we are always looking for new ways to keep our skin from becoming dry, flaky, and dull. Our Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion is a light cosmetic procedure which is used to remove our outermost layer of dead skin cells. Our expert medicial aesthetician Mojgan will fill you in on all you need to know to get even more beautiful & youthful skin!
For starters, Diamond Peel Microdermabrasion is quick, safe, and very effective for all skin types. There is no downtime, or discomfort. A microdermabrasion starts with cleansing and toning of the skin. If exractions are required they will be performed very lightly, followed by a very gentle massage. A mask(hydrating, lifting, collagen, etc.) will be applied and left on for approximately 10-15 minutes. To finish off the service, a face protection cream with SPF will be also be applied, leaving the skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. You will notice results after just one treatment! With continuous sessions, your skin will appear softer, brighter, smoother, and younger looking!
At Deberardinis, we use only FDA approved microdermabrasion systems. The diamond tip microdermabrasion has proven results to reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and sun damaged skin, enlarged pores, blemishes, and it also helps to even out skin tones. Typically our treatments are approximately 1 hour procedure. They are performed anywhere between 3-4 week intervals depending on your skin type, however once a month is recommended to achieve and maintain the best results. Once everything is complete, we will recommend home care products based on what your skin needs for the absolute best results!

Natural Looking Eyelash Extentions

What woman doesn’t want a pair of fabulous and flirty individual mink eyelash extensions? They are currently one of the most talked about beauty services available!  They are individually glued to each one of your existing upper eyelashes. This is done with an cyanoacrylate based glue, which is similar to a surgical adhesive. The eyelash extensions are applied to add length and fullness to your own lashes. We offer eyelashes in many different lengths, for both natural and accentuated looks. You can do an all over long length to achieve a “round eye” look, this is good for smaller eye shapes to make them stand out. Another option is to start from a shorter length in the inner eye and gradually longer length towards the outer eyes to achieve a more sultry “cat eye” look. For your day time look, having them applied is also a great way to minimize the amount of makeup you would need to apply. For evening looks, you can “dress it up” with smokey eyes to emphasize your look. I always have them done for events, such as weddings, vacations, birthdays etc. I especially love them in the summer since you can swim with them, and wear little or no makeup, so no need to worry about it melting off your face! Individual mink eyelashes are the most natural looking, they are really over powering the use of old fashion strip lashes, lengthening serums, and mascaras. Individual lashes definitely come with a little bit of commitment. They require brushing (with a clean mascara wand) every morning, using oil-free makeup remover carefully around the eyes, and of course re-fills. A full set is typically 1.5 hour application, and fills take anywhere from 30-45 minutes. Extensions can last up to 4 weeks, they simply fall out one by one along with your natural lashes. Usually we recommend a fill every 3-4 weeks. Pads are placed over your lower lashes to protect them, with your eyes closed. Using fine tweezers, the technician carefully applies lashes one millimetre above the root of your lash. Lashes should be applied only individually. “Stacking” is a term when 2 or 3 lashes are applied at once, this can be harmful as the weight is too much to handle. For many people, their biggest concern is wondering will their own lashes be in the same condition when they decide to eventually have the lashes removed? The answer is YES! At all costs you must avoid picking at your lashes. They must be removed professionally, which we offer free of charge to clients who are having the full set put on, and are having weekly or monthly refills. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to call in and speak to one of our experts! If you haven’t tried out individual lashes yet, you are missing out! Give them a try when you have that next big occasion!

Do you ever wonder how you could achieve that clean soft hair that’s full of bounce? Our hair colourists are here to help you get rid of that dull, lifeless looking hair from being over-processed, and coloured. The average client comes for their hair colour services every 4 – 6 weeks. In between those 4 – 6 weeks they need to be advised on how to care for their hair at home to keep it looking it’s best! The aftercare is one of the most important aspects of a having a colouring service. For starters, you should be using a shampoo and conditioner that’s specifically made for your hair type. Our brands Goldwell & Kerastase will provide optimal colour care, and they offer a wide selection for various hair types such as damaged, fine, anti-frizz, curly, colour fade protection, etc. They also provide specific shampoo and conditioner for luminous blonde & highlighted hair, which is designed to reduce brassiness. When using products by Goldwell, and Kerastase, always keep in mind that a little goes a lot way. Remember when using your shampoo to always create a good lather on your scalp, only add more when needed. Before applying your conditioner, make sure to take out all the excess water that is still in your hair. By doing this, you’re allowing the conditioner to completely nourish the hair. Keep in mind that you should be applying conditioner from mid-lengths to ends, and avoiding the roots to achieve more volume by not weighing down your hair. When the time does come around for your next colour service, I always recommend having a treatment done. Our Kerastase fusio dose is our in salon ritual, as well as our deep conditioning masks. This is the best advice to keep your hair healthy, shiny, and to preserve your colour until your next appointment!

Spray Tans: The Healthier Tan Alternative

Spray tanning is an essential skin care treatment, and a great anti-aging tanning option. Our Tan Treat N Glow(TTnG) has a dose of powerful natural ingredients that moisturizes, restores, renews, and firms the skin. An added benefit is that “looking tan” is the hottest accessory you can own right now. Everyone always looks better when they have a little bit more colour. Our self tanning expert, Evelyn Lucaci, is here to explain the benefits and process of our spray tanning services. We all are aware that tanning beds and sitting out in the sun is bad for your health, so a much better way to achieve this look for a beautiful bronze glow is spray tanning! TTnG is healthy and natural, it uses organic botanical ingredients that work with your skin to produce a beautiful glow. TTnG helps to disguise visual imperfections such as fine lines, age spots, discoloration, blemishes, acne scars, conceal cellulite, etc. It is a great treatment all year around to enhance your appearance, perfect for parties, weddings, and all types of events. Our TTnG tanning system differs from other companies as it has advanced micro mist technology. Now that you’ve got all your info on this amazing treatment, let me explain how the process works. First of all, the number one detail to remember is to shower, shave, and exfoliate your ENTIRE body before your session. It’s best to wear loose dark clothing, to make sure any additional colour doesn’t rub off onto your light coloured clothes. There are many shades of skin tones that are available to choose from. Our spray tanning system is a mist applied directly to each area on the body, and two coats are applied in each application. After your session, you must avoid showering, rain, sweating, or any exposure to water for up to 8 hours. No super tight or white colour clothing for at least 24 hours. Be sure to moisturize your entire body twice daily for one week. The glow could last you up to two weeks, if maintained properly. At last but not least, ENJOY every bit of your amazing new look! Can’t wait to see ya soon!

Prom Season Hairstyles

You’ve found the perfect prom dress, booked your limo, and now let our expert Eleanor Gonzales tell you about the perfect prom night hair!  Whether it be updo, halfdo, or wearing your hair down, the hottest trend this season is braids. This just also happens to be what I do best! I think to determine whether you’re looking for updo, halfdo, or leaving your hair down, ultimately depends on the style of the dress you’re going to be wearing. To list some examples, open back dresses look best with updos so you are able to show the cut of your dress. Strapless dresses with sweethart neckline are complimented best with a half updo, or leaving down with curls. No matter the look you do, adding a braid always gives that extra OOMF. It’s the perfect way to spice up the typical hair style. There’s so many types to choose from, waterfall braids, french braids, fishtail braids, the list goes on and on. It’s a great way to play around with a variety of hair styles, and get glamorous fast. For hot summer days, where you just feel like you can’t beat the heat and it helps to tame that frizzy look. It evens work well for casual, everyday looks.  To accentuate the look, you can even add in flowers, tiny jewels, or sparkly beads to add a doze of dazzle. This looks great for weddings, bridal showers, and other special occasions. There’s so many options available, but creativity is all up to you!

Hair Cut and Style Profile: The Lob and The Wob


As Spring and Summer are knocking on our door, the trends start to change and lobs and wobs are here as our guest.  When it’s time for a new hairstyle we always get anxious: to cut or not to cut? The answer is in the middle; opt with a lob or wob, for sure-fire satisfaction and up to the minute trendy hair. But should you wob or bob? The bob is surely one of the most popular haircuts of the last few years with its two newest hot incarnations: the lob and the wob. . On the BAFTA, Golden Globes and Grammy Awards 2015 red carpets we saw plenty of shorter styles with Rosamund Pike, Taylor Swift and Katy Perry swapping their longer locks for a side-parted messy shoulder-length. Also most famously, Kim Kardashian chopped off her signature raven mane and showed off a messy wob in its stead. So this means this hair cut has become a fully fledged mega trend.

But what is the difference between the two new bobs: lob and wob? The first is a long version straight styled of the bob, while the second is a wavy one. The freshness of this kind of haircut is the secret of its success: from celebrities to models, many have adopted and love these versions of the classic (maybe too classic) bob. But which is the perfect version for you? The wavy or the straight? Let see together how does “fit” best according to your features.

THE WOB. It’s just a wavy version of the bob but is incredible how much it gives an update to the mane just adding a bit of bounce and volume. Just in few steps it creates a more modern and youthful look. It is perfect for the one who have natural curly hair, like Beyoncé (she is a big fan of this trend), or you can create the wave with an iron.  It’s so versatile and works for nearly everyone: the volume and the curl are suitable for every kind of features, but for the round face, it’s better to opt for the straight version. To maintain the look you need to trim it every six to eight weeks, so it’s easy glamour really.

THE LOB. It’s the straight longest version of the bob and is perfect if you don’t want to change your hairstyle too much. This is surely one of the most shared by celebrities in 2014, but for sure also in 2015: This hair trend is particularly appropriate for those who want to add symmetry to their features, and to oval faces. It is also a simple way to manage a big mane.   Add bangs to a lob for a sexier appeal too (but be wary of the upkeep of bangs- they take time). With a lob, your hair will be long enough to be worn in a ponytail or bun, but also short enough to avoid spending hours with the heating tools.  Lobs need a trim more often than a wob or a bob, as it can quickly reach a mundane mid length. The lob looks best when it’s kept close to the collar bone, so drop by the hairdresser at least every 6 weeks.
