On the Catwalk

After the wrap up of NY Fashion Week, fashion is still on the forefront of many minds. While not all of the looks that were presented in NY last week are realistic for busy moms, business professionals, and chic women in Wisconsin, the Go Red for Women Spring Fashion Show at Macy’s will model looks that can perfectly move from the runway to your wardrobe.

Macy’s will be styling all of the models, both male and female from child to adult. Because each look is coming directly from Macy’s you can be guaranteed it will be a realistic match for your spring closet. Haven’s owner Lisa and her daughter Kaela will both be models in the show. They’ve had a sneak peak at some of the outfits and promise they are exciting and perfect for spring!

And the part were most excited about for the show — Haven will be styling the hair of each model. Prepare to be dazzled as we reveal some of the styles were most excited about for spring. Along with day time, business, and night time looks for men and women, children will also be styled. With prom right around the corner we will also be sharing updo’s that are different than your average prom updo.

The fashion show begins at 12:30 in the Fox River Mall directly in front of Macy’s. Donations are requested for the first 200 people who would like to secure seating. All proceeds benefit the American Heart Association, fighting to end heart disease and stroke, our Nation’s number 1 and 3 leading causes of death.

The first 100 people who donate to the American Heart Association will also receive a SWAG bag, including a $20 gift certificate for a first time salon or spa experience at Haven.

Join us tomorrow at 12:30 to watch the Go Red For Women Spring Fashion  Show at Macy’s. Wear your red and remember if you choose to donate to the American Heart Association you could receive a gift certificate to Haven.

See you at the catwalk!

Love your Locks? Locks of Love does!

If you are ready for a change now is a great time to do it! What a better way to revamp your look than by rocking a stylish bob, and for a good cause too.

At Haven we support Locks of Love, a nonprofit organization that helps financially disadvantaged children under 21 in the United States and Canada who suffer from long term hair loss from any diagnosis. Locks of Love provides much more than a wig to children who are in need. Their mission statement tells of the support they provide:

Our mission is to return a sense of self, confidence, and normalcy to children suffering from hair loss by utilizing donated ponytails to provide the highest quality hair prosthetics to financially disadvantaged children.

Each donated ponytail must be at least 8″ in length and be non-highlighted. Hair that has been colored will be accepted. We will send the hair to Locks of Love for any Haven guest that chooses to donate. Once the hair has been received you will receive a certificate in the mail.

Let us help you take a  step towards a new look and the good feelings you will receive when you donate your hair. Call 920-339-1111 to schedule your haircut today.

All about the Mess

New York fashion week brought new styles to the runway and gave onlookers tips for this season’s upcoming trends. One trend that we keep noticing is that a lot of the hair styles is all about the mess and LOTS of hairspray.

Watch as Bb. editorial stylist Jordan M shares how they created the trend for Katya Leonovich’s designs.

Don’t give Dirty Hair a Bad Rep.

We have a bone to pick with whoever decided that dirty hair isn’t a good thing. Don’t get us wrong, hygiene is important and washing your hair when necessary is a must, but that doesn’t mean you need to overkill your scalp with shampoo.

A hair wash can last longer than just one day. In the hair world “2nd day hair” and even  “3rd day hair” is common. If you regularly get a professional shampoo and blow out your wash can last 2 extra days. If you are washing at home stick to  every other day for a wash.

Master stylist, Kimberlee Gast from Haven Salon and Spa shares her insider tips on dirty hair: “At first it might seem like your scalp is oily, but commit to a schedule and your body will begin to adjust. The natural oils from your scalp give your hair needed moisture and make it easier to style.”

Kim explains the other benefits of second day hair: “It’s a time saver, you can cut your morning routine down by not having to wash your hair in the shower or spend time blow drying it.”

Other added benefits include the break it gives your wallet. Wearing second day hair will help your color and your shampoo last longer.

Also, if you’re using the Aveda Invati products it is recommended by Aveda that you only wash every second or third day for best results.

Looking for second day hair styles? Going wash-free gives your hair extra volume, perfect for a pony with some lift. It is also a great time to wear a messy braid. If you want to style your hair down add a few curls to the ends — everyone will be fooled that you didn’t spend hours doing your hair.

And Kim’s personal favorite, hair accessories. Just because you’re recycling a wash doesn’t mean that you need to reuse the same hairstyle. Headbands are a fun way to spice up your outfit and are affordable. Kim gets hers from anywhere and everywhere, especially Claires, H & M, and Charlotte Russe.

Redefine the bad rep. that dirty hair has and embrace the variety that you can add to your style by not being a slave to daily hair washing.

How to Have the Hair of a Spring Break Goddess

Spring break season is fast approaching, whether you are jet setting across the country or staying close to home you can master the look of spring break hair with these tips from Haven stylist, Courtney Wunder.

“Bumble and bumble surf spray is the key, ” reveals Courtney “you can use the product  after you shower or hop out of the pool or ocean to give yourself a style without effort.”

When you’re on the beach the last thing you want to do is spend hours in front of the mirror flat ironing your locks. Surf spray is easy — leave it in your beach bag so it’s always handy.

“Take your towel and give your hair a little scrunch,” says Courtney, “Then apply 10-15 sprays of the Bb. surf spray and you’re good to go.” This style gives your hair a tousled, beach worthy look.

Ready to go out at night? You can reactivate your wave using a few sprays of Bb. prep and drying your hair with a diffuser. Your hair will remember the style it was in earlier but with the help of the diffuser will also give it added volume and extra sass!

Don’t be stuck on vacation worrying about your hair, bathe in the sun knowing that you have the style of a Spring Break Goddess.

Love is in the Air

Happy Valentine’s Day! This year we’ve chosen to celebrate the love-filled holiday by pampering one deserving women in our community. The choice was tough, it came as no surprise to us that there are so many worthy women in our town.

Carrie Jauquet is the special women who will reap the benefits of our Valentine’s Day Makeover Package. Carrie will enjoy being queen for a day at Haven while receiving a hair cut, hair color, make up application, 45 minute Haven Signature Facial, and Haven Signature Manicure. This is pampering that Carrie deserves.

Danielle, Carrie’s daughter, nominated her mom for this special package because Carrie experienced a tough year after the economy was hit hard, she grieved the loss of loved ones, and she dealt with unfortunate medical circumstances in her family.

Danielle speaks highly of her parents, especially Carrie, “This has been very tough for both of them however, you would never know it if you met her. She has so much on her plate that I envy her strength and courage, I don’t think there is anyone more deserving of this makeover.”

We are so pleased to offer this package to Carrie and are excited for the day that she can experience our salon and spa and rejuvenate herself, remembering the people who love her.

Don’t forget to pamper your loved ones, not just on Valentine’s Day but always.

Concealed Carry

Concealed Carry is a hot topic in Wisconsin right now. Regardless of how you feel about the concealed carry weapon status, this is one concealer tip we think you’ll love.

On the nights you just didn’t get enough sleep, perhaps partied a little too hard the night before, or are just unfortunately blessed with dark circles under your eyes the Circle Delete from Jane Iredale will be your best friend.

Circle Delete is perfect for those who wear make up on the daily, only for special occasions, or prefer to be au natural.

The two tone color combination allows you to camouflage your pesky under eye circles. Start blending from the corner of your eye to wear your circles are the darkest. Bleeding the two colors together conceals your dark circles so you can carry on with your day.

Circle delete is available in 3 different colors (each compact contains 2 shades). We suggest using Jane Iredale’s Camouflage brush for best results.

So go ahead, conceal and carry the Jane Iredale way.
