Hair Spa Treatments: What are they and how can they benefit me?

 

Who DOESN’T love being pampered?! We all need a break from the rat race and keeping all those balls in the air. We DESERVE an escape from the seemingly ever-increasing drama, concerns, and stressors of the ever-changing world around us. 

So how will YOU choose to treat yourself to some well-earned pampering? Day spa? A massage? Those are great forms of pampering but don’t forget: even your hair needs some “me” time!

With changing lifestyles, increased exposure to dust and pollution, frequent consumption of processed and oily foods, and stress from everyday life in general, the health of our hair takes a beating. Many of us are concerned about dull, damaged, hair, which lacks bounce and shine.

That’s why Salon 1580 is excited to introduce a new service: Organic Hair Spa Treatments! They can transform the beauty AND health of your hair and scalp! The added benefit is relaxing salon pampering!


Once upon a time, Sunday champis or hair oil massages with our mothers and grandmothers were a ritual. Today’s hair spa treatment will give you the same benefits.

What is Hair Spa?

A hair spa treatment includes a combination of oil massaging, shampoo, hair mask, and hair conditioning. Each of these has a specific purpose and function in adding to hair health. 

When you visit Salon 1580 for a hair spa treatment, Pat will assess your hair type, as well as hair and/or scalp issues you are facing. Based on her evaluation, she will suggest a suitable hair spa treatment. While some hair spa treatments will strengthen the hair, others may target hair thinning, or dandruff and itchy scalp. Your Hair Spa Treatment will be customized personally for YOUR needs.

Used in sequence, this treatment process will help restore the shine, texture, and bounce to your hair:

  1. With warm oil, the scalp is massaged. 
  2. Hair is then washed with a mild, nourishing shampoo. 
  3. A hair spa masque is then applied from the root to the tip. 
  4. Your hair is secured in a cap and heat is applied via sitting under the dryer to create steam (while you enjoy some wine or your favorite beverage). 
  5. Your hair is rinsed and a leave-in conditioner and/or serum is applied. 
  6. Your hair will be blow-dried. (A curler set or finishing styling, such as flat ironing, is available for an additional charge.)

Are Hair Spas for me?   

These treatments are highly effective for these common hair problems:

  • Thinning of hair
  •  Dryness and dullness of hair 
  • Hair fall 
  • Dandruff 
  • Rough hair 
  • Dry and itchy scalp 
  • Thinning of hair 
  •  Oily scalp 
  • Gradual and slow hair growth 
  • Hair breakage

A nourishing hair spa is also a great way to mitigate the damage caused by chemical hair treatments.

Benefits of hair spa:

  • Conditions the Hair, nourishing with protein and moisturizes. 
  • Normalizes Oil Secretion 
  • Stimulates Blood Circulation 
  • Repairs Damaged Hair 
  • Reduces Hair and Scalp Issues 
  • Strengthens hair roots and follicles. 
  • Relaxes the Mind and Body, Reducing Stress.

So, what are you waiting for?! Book YOUR Restorative, Pampering, Organic Hair Spa Treatment TODAY as an add-on service or full-service treatment. Pat Alessi is offering customized treatments for your personal needs at the introductory price of only $50*! (Prices subject to change after the launch of these new, customized treatments. Extra charges may apply for hair longer than shoulder-length, damaged hair, and/or above-average thickness.)

Winter Hair Trends 2022: Layering is HOT!

 


Winter is for layering … yes, layering your clothes to stay warm and help adjust the body’s temperature going while going in and out of the cold. BUT this year, Winter is for HAIR layers, too! It’s the latest style! And you KNOW how Pat Alessi loves layers, texture, and movement in hair! This season, she is definitely in her element.



“Haircut trends this season will involve flattering length and layer distribution, adding playful face frames and fringes,” says RUSK Hair Global Creative Director Matt Swinney, who is seeing a lot of ‘70s and ‘90s influence lately. Layered hair is pleasantly low-maintenance, with lots of movement and can work with a range of hair textures. 

Modern Shag: blown-out & naturally curly

Long Layers
 

Celebrity hairstylists and other experts are telling us that the latest and greatest styles are modern shags, long layered looks, cropped cuts, layered curls, and choppy layers.

Other layered looks that are trending are wolf cuts (a mullet with a voluminous twist)[1], and the modern mullet, AKA the “soft-serve mullet”[2]. (Yes, it's a "thing".)

More Retro Layering Styles That are HOT Right Now!

‘70s layers aka “feathering” (think Farrah Fawcett), as well as face-framing layers are BIG, with a huge trend being a modern twist to the 90s “The Rachel” cut (from the TV series “Friends”).

Shaggy Lob (Long Bob)

Layered Curls

 Edgy + Soft = Bixie

Another hot look of the season is the BIXIE. The newly coined hair trend, "bixie" is exactly what it sounds like — a cross between a pixie and a bob. The bixie combines the edginess of a pixie with the softness of a bob, and it's suitable for all hair textures. The bixie cut can be tailored to any style depending on whether a client wants a more textured or a more polished look.[3]

Don’t care for layers?  Or at least not ready to take the plunge? That’s OK, because styles you love are here to stay, and some can even incorporate layering … like The Bobcat (a blunt bob). Celebrity hairstylist Sunny Brook recommends going an inch or two shorter for a bolder look. "The beauty of this cut is that it can be customized to any hair texture,” said Brooks. For fine hair, she recommends getting very blunt edges to add bulk. For medium or dense hair, you can add ghost layers to remove weight and add a bit of movement. And for thick wavy or curly hair, the stylist suggests going a bit longer with "added layers to remove weight and give your hair movement and openness around your face."[4]  The "Sliced Bob" is going to be everywhere this winter. This ultra-blunt cut is often seen on thin hair and super-sleek, but is also perfect for thick hair because it takes extra weight out and adds movement. Like so many iterations of the bob, the sliced bob looks amazing worn straight or wavy.

Sliced Bob

Bangs are big this winter, from soft sexy fringe to grown-out, cheekbone length curtain bangs[6] or feathery 1970s-inspired fringe (like the one Billie Eilish sports).

Fringe Bangs

Curtain Bangs
 

Cuts aside, a big style trend right now (and again, retro, this time the ‘90s) is “high, half-up/half-down hair”. And THE “in” color is Icy Blonde.[8]  

 

Half-Up/Half-Down Style

Icy Blonde is THE Color This Winter

So … if you are ready to beat the winter doldrums, spice things up with a new ‘do!  Maybe these hair trends will inspire you!
