The Chignon Bun you Can Do Yourself

After attending Advanced Styling with Jon Reyman at the Aveda Institute of Milwaukee Haven stylist Lindsey Grawitch came back to share that she had learned two handfuls of awesome new techniques.

We are so excited that Lindsey was fortunate to be trained under Jon Reyman, Artistic Director to the Aveda Academy New York, because he is a hair rockstar. Having designed shows in New York, Miami, London, Seoul, and Toyko some of Reyman’s celebrity clients include Caroline Herra, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren and Perry Ellis. Reyman has also been featured in Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, and Harper’s Bazaar. With a resume like this there is no denying how great the styles will be that Reyman teaches.After the class, Lindsey told us, “this class was inspiring and it was an honor to work with someone so knowledgeable and influential in the industry.”

We are thrilled that as prom and wedding season is arriving we have so many trendy, fashion forward styles to wow our guests with.

There are two myths about special occasion styles we disagree with: 1) they don’t have to be the usual curls that are pinned up, 2) they are not just for special occasions.

One of Lindsey’s favorite styles from the class is a chignon bun. Lindsey tells why this look is great, “the bun is versatile, working in all hair types, and it’s extremely simple to do.” It combines the classic elegance that a bride is looking for with the hot trends of 2012. Better yet, you can do it yourself!

Watch as Lindsey shows how easy this chignon bun is and then reveals how its perfect for a wedding, prom, a night out, or just a day at the beach.

Gel Manicure Rumors–True or False?

If you’ve been following the recent debate over gel manicures or if you saw the Good Morning America segment from April 12 on Safer Mani-Pedis you might be concerned about the health risks involved with getting a gel manicure.

Safety is one of our highest priorities at Haven. We are committed not only to staying up to date on hot trends, but also on safety measures for all of our employees and guests.

We are proud to offer the OPI gel color as our product of choice for our extended wear manicure and pedicure services.

Much of the concern with gel manicures is the light that is used. While UV lights have been reported to be harmful to health, at Haven we use an LED light which cures the OPI gel color in 30 seconds compared to the 2 minute cure time of a UV light. LED lights are the same light source that is used in remote controls.

Two chemicals that have raised safety concerns are formaldehyde and methyl methacrylate, neither product is found in any of OPI’s nail colors.

We  guarantee that each service you receive at Haven comes not only with the highest level of customer service but also with  confidence that the products are non-harmful.

Some of the myths concerning gel manicures may be true, but we have carefully selected the products that we carry so that we can stand behind each service that we offer.

Are you ready to get a manicure that will last for two weeks? Breathe easy knowing that when you get it at Haven your nails, skin, and lungs will be protected. Speak with one of our guest service representatives to reserve you spot for an extended wear manicure. (920)339-1111

Cover up Un-washed Hair with an Easy Do

Bumble and bumble stylist Q. Ellis-Lee created an easy do-it-yourself look for Refinery29.com, Bb says it’s perfect for the summer days you spend at music festivals. Whether you haven’t washed your hair for a few days or you just want it off your neck, this is a simple style that will keep your hair washing secrets while making you look glam.

Follow these simple steps that Refinery29.com‘s Megan McIntyre created after Q taught the trend:

Photographed by Guang Xu

Start off by emulsifying a dime-sized amount of Bumble and bumble Color-Minded Styling Balm in your hands, then run it through your strands. Q says that by coating your hands in the balm, you’ll get the most even coverage. The balm has UV protection in it, so it will help protect your mane from the sun, as well as adding a small amount of hold and shine. It also keeps your hair moisturized, so it’s not all dry and full of flyaways.

Once your hair has been properly “balmed,” use your fingers to create a slightly messy, deep side-part. You want to lift and “scoop” your hair at the root as you pull it back to help create a bit of extra volume.

Starting on the side of your

head that has the most hair,

begin rolling your hair in towards your head, gathering in more as you go. When you get to your ear, place a pin downwards into the roll to help secure. You want your roll to be volumized and a bit loose, but not falling out, so if you have thick strands you might need to use more than one.

Continue rolling until you get to the nape of your neck, then place another pin at the end of the roll. Repeat on the opposite side.

Gather the two loose sections of hair at the back of your

head into a ponytail and secure with a hair bungee. You can use an elastic, but Q says he prefers using the bungee as it is easier to position and wrap.

Take your ponytail and twist it until it bends upwards into a roll.

Continue rolling up until all the hair is in this loose chignon, then pin the ends of your hair at the base of the neck to hide them and anchor the style.

To add a little bit of festival flair, take a fresh flower and trim the stem so it is about an inch or two long. Take a bobby pin and attach it to the flower, then push the pin into your hair at the base of the chignon.

Try this look at home or ask your Haven stylist to style your hair using the summer look from Bb. stylist Q. Visit Haven to pick up any Bumble and bumble products you need.

The Many Uses of Moroccanoil

If you asked us our favorite product it would be hard to choose; however, we couldn’t deny that we LOVE the Moroccanoil Treatment.

Why do we love the Moroccanoil Treatment so much?

  • All hair types can use it (yes, even those with fine and light-colored hair!)
  • It’s versatile, use it on damp or dry hair
  • It adds shine while also promoting healthy hair
  • It’s residue-free so it can be used as a conditioning, styling, and finishing tool.

Moroccanoil says it best:

Moroccanoil Treatment transforms hair so completely because it’s a formula that brings back lost proteins for strength; fatty acids, omega-3 oils and vitamins for shine; and antioxidants for protection. It absorbs instantly to fill gaps in hair made by heat, styling and environmental damage. Hair goes from brittle and broken to strong adn flexible. From rough and frizzy to brilliantly shiny, smooth and manageable–the perfect starting point for effortless styling.

To use this product apply a dime size amount to towel dried hair working from mid-length to ends. After the hair is dry the Moroccanoil Treatment can be used to tame fly-aways and further condition dry ends.

Insider tip: Use Moroccanoil on just-shaved legs to restore moisture and make them shine!

We love Moroccanoil and we’re sure that you will too! Pick up your bottle of Moroccanoil treatment from Haven and ask your stylist to use the product on your hair during your next visit.
