Calling all curly haired clients!! We have the ultimate fix for all of you that are fighting the frizz, wrestling with styling tools and wasting countless dollars on styling products.

What is a Deva Cut?

The Deva Cutting technique “is a technique used by the Devachan Salon for cutting curly hair. Curly hair is cut in its natural form: dry, not wet. Each curl is individually shaped and the style is based on the individual.”

Each cut is a customized cut for each curl pattern, which requires strict and extensive training by every Deva Curl Stylist. The hair is cut dry, simply because the spring factor found in naturally curly hair changes and falls when it is cut dry.

[One of the benefits of a Deva Curl haircut is that they are built for a wash & go hairstyle]

“DevaCuts are dimensional and intricate and made for wash-and-gos.”

How does one style a Deva Cut?

Karlie will educate her clients on how to style their new, bouncy, beautiful ringlets. She guides her guest on the cleansing and styling process as she works so that clients can go home and recreate this style themselves. Karlie will also recommend the perfect Deva Curl products to purchase and use at home.

Where can I purchase these products?

 

You can purchase all of your products while you are at your appointment at Frangipani!

Balayage vs. Ombre vs. Babylights

 These three (very popular and trendy) services can be easily mistaken and sometimes cause confusion. How do you know which one is the one you are looking for? Leave that up to the professional. Your stylist will be able to suggest which is best for you based on your hair, and your wants and expectations.

 

Balayage (pronounced bah-lee-AHZGE, French word meaning “to sweep”)

This technique can also be referred to as hair painting. The lightener, or hair color, is painted on in such a way to create a subtle, graduated highlighting effect from root to end. This style of ‘highlighting’ is used to create beautiful blends of multi-dimensional color. The balayage color also is popular due to its natural-looking effect, which can be used to achieve many different looks.

Balayage is here to stay! Reason being, because it can (as stated above) achieve so many different looks, and due to the fact that this service allows you to go longer in between appointments, unlike your 6-8 week foil touchup.

In order to accomplish the seamless transition from root to end, stylists have to be extremely educated in this craft. There is a steep investment in learning how to create the perfect natural highlight, and this is why this service may come with a heavier price tag. BUT keep in mind, like stated above, you can go 3-4 months in between appointments! It is a worthwhile investment.

 

Ombre (French for “shaded” or “shading”)

This trend color is defined by hair that appears darker at the root, blending into a lighter and lighter shade as it reaches the end. To achieve this (more drastic) look, stylists may still use the balayaging technique. Generally, ombres work best on brunettes because it is the least subtle of all the techniques.

Ombre is kind of like color blocking, there are no dark pieces left on the bottom to help keep it natural like the balayage, just a nice transition between the colors. While the ombre is also a beautiful look, it must be done right by trained professionals! This technique also requires advanced education, which may be accompanied by a higher price tag. Don’t try the ombre at home ladies!

 

Babylights (also known as fine foils)

In this method, separating the hair into tiny sections creates micro-highlights – maybe only a couple of strands each. This technique also achieves a very natural look that is meant to mimic the fine, natural highlights you used to get as a kid, hence the name babylights.

Babylights are also very low maintenance, just like the balayage and ombre. Since the highlights are so fine, as the hair grows out the overall style appears subtle, and there are no defined line of demarcation. With this method you can go about 12-14 weeks in between appointments!

Another important thing to note is that babylights can be applied to any hair color or type! While the effects on blondes are fabulous, brunettes and redheads can have fun with highlighting and babylighting as well.

 

Schedule a consultation or ask your stylist which technique is best for you! Always remember, you get what you pay for, and the investment is worth the less-frequent visits to the salon!

3D Microblading

image1-3

The hottest new trend – 3D microblading – has completely taken the world by storm, and we are SO excited to play such a big part in it!

Our lead esthetician, Cortney, has created hundreds of new brows for not only local ladies, but some that travel by plane just to witness for themselves her amazing, true talent. Her waiting list is pages long, but for good reason. Cortney creates a semi-permanent 3D brow that makes everyone do a double-take. How is it possible for it to look so real?

Cortney takes half of the appointment time (approximately 1 hour) taking measurements of the face and drawing on the brow to make sure it highlights her client’s best features and frames their face in the most perfect way. She is also very exact and proficient in making sure every stroke is spot on every-single-time. One word sums up her work: amazing.

 

If you are on the fence about this simple procedure, let me help you decide by giving you these simple positive changes a pair of brows will have on your everyday life…

  • These brows will save you TIME. Time is precious, and you will not have to take this extra time to draw on your brows every morning. For some this takes 10 minutes, for some it takes 30, imagine waking up with the perfect set of brows already in place..
  • SWEAT. We live in Florida, in an active society. So whether you are out shopping or hitting the gym, you do not have to worry about your brows sweating off, smudging or disappearing altogether.
  • This brings me to the next point… These brows are perfect for summer. If you are at the beach, in the pool, participating in an outdoor activity or even just going makeup-free for the day, you will still feel that much better having bold, defined brows already set in place.

Visit our website or our Instagram for more before and after photos of Cortney’s work, and call to book your appointment ASAP (as spots fill up quickly)!! 904-241-1411
