Why Pureology?

If you have been to visit one of our stylists at Practically Perfect, you know that we use Pureology products both in the back bar and for finishing your look. We also highly recommend them to our clients for use at home. There are a few reasons why we are so in love with Pureology, but the most important to us is that they are a cruelty-free and green company. This means that their products are 100% vegan, they aren’t tested on animals nor do they use animal products or by-products. In addition they also have made huge reduction of their environmental footprint:

Getting to Know: Kara

She walks in beauty, like the night
   Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
   Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
I have always loved this poem by Lord Byron and when thinking about what to write for Kara, it just popped into my mind. It describes her personality to a T, she does walk in beauty and she is the first to see the good in people. She is kind and giving when so many are not. She tries each day to do good in the world through her relationships with her daughter, her family, and her clients.
We love her ready laugh, her smile, her sweet nature and we know you do too. Take a peek inside Kara’s world by reading below.

Top 5 Questions To Ask Before Getting Waxed

A painful bikini wax ranks right up at the top of the my list of fears. Having someone nonchalantly ripping out the hairs from a very tender part of your body is no fun whatsoever. (Yeowww.) This is why it’s important to get all the information you need before dropping trou.

First off, don’t have a glass of wine before your appointment to take the edge off. Alcohol will actually work as a stimulant and tighten the pores, thus making it harder to pull out the hair. Also don’t shave before your appointment. The hair needs to be 1/4 to 1/8 of an inch long in order for the best results (it also is quicker and easier to remove.) Lastly don’t workout before or after your appointment. Sweat will make it harder to remove hair and the friction from working out after can cause a reaction. Wait at least 24-48 hours after your wax to work out.

Now let’s get to the Top 5 Questions to discuss before getting waxed:

Top 5 Questions to Ask Your Hair Stylist (Before They Start)

The relationship between you and your stylist is an important one and it can take awhile to develop a friendship. Apart from husbands and best friends, your hairstylist usually knows the most about you and your life, work, and family. The salon should be a naturally supportive environment where you can feel comfortable sharing your ideas and learning how to achieve them. Your stylist should act as an extension of that hospitality and make you feel right at home.

In order to get to that point though, you will need to ask some questions first. Any stylist worth her salt should be able to answer these for you and if they can’t, get yourself a new one post haste!

So here they are, in no particular order, the top 5 questions to ask your stylist: Continue reading

Getting to Know: Barbara Holloway

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Barbara Holloway chose Goldie Hawn as the actress to play her, should her life ever be made into a movie. Barbara, like Goldie, exudes positive energy and warmth. Her motto might very well be, “There are no strangers, only friends we haven’t met yet.”

Barbara’s 30+ years in the hair industry, not to mention the thousands of returning clients, are testimony to her friendly personality and the high standards to which she holds herself. Practically Perfect is better for having her on our team.
