Gloss updates!

In combination with our partership with Greencircle Salons, we are making strides to increase our sustainability in other areas.

We are excited about our new product line Davines. We decided to replace our Pureology with Davines because it has the values we were looking for. Davines is a family owned company in Italy. It is part of the slow food movement. They farm the main ingredients in their products on their own land. The company has a zero impact certification as it nuetralizes it's carbon footprint. The products are all free of sulphates and parabens and come in food grade plastic containers that are recyclable. 

Our other product line Kevin Murphy is also a very sustainable brand.  They partnered with Greencircle Salons to help our indusrtry as a whole be more environmentally responsible. This line is free of sulphates and parabens and is unique in it's approach,"skincare for the hair". This year they released thier color line Color.Me in the U.S. We proudly now carry this color line. It is free of Ammonia, PPD, and Parabens. We have been having beautiful shiny results. 

We are a Greencircle Salon now!

Trend Report & Education News

We've noticed the newest trends and want to share them with you! A lot of the current looks for men include very short sides with a longer top. Some have hard parts to accentuate the look. Longer mens styles are very textured and lived in. The women's trend include the "lob" short for long bob. It can be worn wavy or straight and looks great with a solid color or soft Balayage highlights. We are noticing the Ombre is slowly transitioning to a softer color change or adding Balayage highlights in to break up the severity of the color change.

In June, all of the girls at Gloss took a local current trends mens barbering class. It focused on the extremely short current styles for men, including variations on the hard part that is emerging in todays mens fashion. This month, we all took a hand painting/Balayage class that introduced new applications to achieve current womens hair fashion trends. Every stylist at Gloss stays current to keep you looking fresh!
