Change your Dallas Salon

How to Change your Dallas Salon and not Feel Guilty about it

Over time your hair care needs are going to change. You may feel that your current Dallas salon just isn’t able to offer you what you need anymore. Perhaps they have changed staff or they are not current on the new looks and procedures offered. Perhaps their prices are too high compared to other locations. Maybe you want Hair Extensions and they do not offer it there.

No matter what the reason is you do not have to feel guilty about changing the salon you go to. Many people allow such guilt to keep them somewhere that isn’t a good match for them. First, you have to decide if you are really ready to move on. Make a list of the pros and cons about the salon you currently visit. This will help you to get the entire issue into perspective.

If there are small things that you may be able to fix by communicating with the salon then try it first. For example if you are upset over the higher prices tell them. If you have been a long term customer they may be willing to cut you a price break in order to keep you at their Dallas salon. If you are upset over the wait time each time you come in for an appointment perhaps they can make changes to their procedures so that you get seen on time from that point on.

If you really aren’t happy with the look you get from your current salon though it really is time to consider going elsewhere. Nothing is worse than paying for a terrible hair cut or not liking the color you have displayed when you walk out the door. If you are ready to shake things up but your Dallas salon is stuck in the same old routine then you need to get someone that is up to speed on trends and ready to take on the challenge.

The decision is yours to tell the hairstylist at the salon that you are not coming back or not. Some people never schedule that next appointment and that is the end of it. Yet some hairstylists will call their clients to ask when they want to come in if they haven’t heard from them for a while. If you feel comfortable having a conversation about it then tell them. They are professionals and should be able to handle that information.

You can also write them a short note thanking them for the past service but then telling them you have decided to get your hair done in another salon. You can choose to give them reasons why in the note or just leave it at that. You don’t have to make it an emotional turbulent change or feel guilty for doing what is right for your hair.

It is fine to discuss with another Dallas salon what you are looking for and why you are changing. However, it is best not to mention the salon you were with before or the hairstylist that you were working with. Keep things very professional and you can do that by leaving those personal parts of the discussion out of it. State what it is that you want from the new salon and find out if they can meet your needs or not. If you feel the need for a change come see me at Muse Salon in Dallas, trust me I am up for the challenge and very confident that I will succeed.


Dallas Salon Communication

Dallas Salon Communication

Dallas Salon Communication

Communication with your Dallas salon hairstylist is a key part of making sure you get the look that you want. Don’t be shy when it comes telling us what you want. At the end of the day it is all about making the client look and feel great. There may be times when we will recommend something different than you suggested though. Take the time to listen to why we are telling you that information.

Chances are we know something that you don’t. For example you may want a procedure for your hair that we don’t feel it is healthy enough for at that point in time. We certainly don’t want to see your hair brittle, dry, and breaking off. You may want a color that they feel wouldn’t look very good for your overall complexion. Don’t take what we say personal, just use that information to help you make up your mind about what you want.

When you come in to get your hair cut, be clear about what you are trying to do. For example you may be trying to grow out your bangs to the length of the rest of your hair. That will take time so you want to tell the hairstylist at the Dallas salon. Otherwise they will assume to just cut them like they always do for you.

If you are tried of your hair falling flat as us for suggestions. Talk to the hairstylist about long layers that will help to add body and dimension to your hair. This is a very effective way to get the look you want. If you don’t like your hair as short as it is, ask us about hair extensions. They can offer you both volume and length and depending on the brand used they do not take long to put in at all.

Styling tips are something you should discuss with your hairstylist too. What often happens is that people love the look when the hairstylist is done with it. Yet when they get home they are frustrated because they can’t duplicate that same look. Ask  us for tips on how to get it done on your own. Pay attention too as we style it for you so that you can see what we are doing to your hair.

Perception can be very different for any two people, and that can make it tough when it comes to getting your hair done. Yet a photo says a million words if you bring them along with you. Bring along photos of hair cuts and styles you would like to consider. Bring along photos of colors that you think would be very appealing.

As your hairstylist sees such information they will be able to get a clear picture of what you are looking for. If you have areas of your hair that you worry about you should share that information too. For example if you feel you have a large forehead you may want to keep a style that covers it. If you have thinning hair areas that you are embraced by tell the hairstylist so they can offer solutions to make them less visible.

Blowout Only Salon

Blowout Only Salon

What is a Blowout Only Salon?

Due to the demand for Blowouts there are a few salons popping up in Dallas that are only offering only this procedure. They are helping those salons that are just booked to the hilt for it. They can’t get in all of their regular customers too. The demand for this procedure stems from the great sleek fresh out of the Salon look that celebrities and the rich seem to sport. Now everyone wants to get it due to the affordable cost.

Priced at around $35 a blowout is affordable enough to hit the salon once or even twice a week. A Blowout will last for as long as you take care of it……..within reason of course. Many women who try it initially think it will be a one time thing. Then they realize that their hair has been easy to manage, full, looks great, and it is healthy. They have also been getting lots of compliments on it which makes them feel very good too. This all takes them back in fr another quick blowout to be done on their hair so that they can keep that look.

Clients are encouraged to make their follow up appointment before they leave from the initial process but its up to you and how frequently you think you need another blowout. Although making an appointment guarantees the ability to get in and to have it done again when it is time.

You can look online to see if there is a Blowout only salon in your area of Dallas You can also talk to your current hairstylist as they may be able to recommend one of them. Take your time to find a Blowout only Salon . Ask them about their experience, you want someone that has done the procedure so often that it is like second nature to them.

This is an exciting concept but it still means you have to see your regular hairstylist for various things you may need such as getting hair extensions, hair cuts or your hair colored. It is just the price we pay though to be able to look our very best all of the time!

Some worry that a Blowout only salon isn’t going to be able to survive. After all, this is a trend that people are heavily into right now. Yet there is no way to predict just how long it is going to continue. The trend could shift in a new direction before long. Yet the here and now shows that these salons are booked daily from opening to closing. They are making very good money with this business model.

Most of the owners are confident that Blowout look is going to be one that continues to go strong for a very long time. As the market changes they will as well so that they can continue to deliver what customers are looking for. One of the more popular Blowout only Salons in Dallas is Drybar in Highland Park.

Best Hair in Dallas

Best Hair in Dallas

Ongoing training is the only way to offer the best hair in Dallas

The best hair in Dallas can only be offered by hairstylists that continue to train and educate themselves. We need to be exceptionally well at what we do because one slip up could cause the world of pain for our clients.  In addition we need to be able to expand the services that we can provide to our Dallas clients. We are extremely valuable in the eyes of our clients because they count on us to make them beautiful. It also prevents existing clients from getting bored with a look and then trying to seek out a new hairstylist in Dallas to help them get it 🙂

When there is trust and communication between a hairstylist and a client we both are very happy. It also helps us to secure a relationship that goes well beyond just the hair. We become friends and enjoy conversation as the procedures are being done. Many of my existing color and cut clients were converted to Hair Extensions clients from conversations such as these.

When I talk to other hairstylists about my experiences it often makes them want to look into training. This allows them to have the right qualifications and experience to offer different products, procedures and techniques to their clients. In many ways it can also help them to get new clients.

There are plenty of great places around the Dallas area get hair education and many of the manufacturers come to Dallas several times a year with their roadshow. This makes it convenient and practical for hairstylists in this area to learn more and to get the hands on training they need. We can attend seminars, workshops, take classes, and even try out various types of products so that we can decide what would be best to offer to our clients.

Any client out there will tell you that there are many differences when it comes to Dallas hairstylists. Some know how to do a ton of things extremely well and some know how to do a few things just ok. I always advise my clients in the consultation that if for some reason they do not choose me to do their hair take their time to find one that they feel can really offer them great results. The best hairstylist are not chosen by chance. They are chosen because they are always willing to learn things, to try something new, and to take some risks. It pays off too with client loyalty, referrals, and a demand for our services on a regular basis.

Clients have every right to ask their hairstylist about the training they have received for a given procedure. They want to feel good about what they are going to have done. Knowing that they are in good hands is always a great benefit. It also means that they will be able to continue coming back to that hairstylist for all of their needs. Not just for the actual procedures but for the routine upkeep on them as well.

Being able to try new looks and new procedures is very fun and exciting from the hairstylist perspective as well. It can be a challenge at times to learn something new but certainly worth it in the end. Continuing education enables us offer our clients a wide spectrum of colors, styles, techniques, procedures, and more. It makes coming up with unique looks possible as well as offering them the latest trends that are in demand and in style. Learning new things and continuously practicing existing techniques allow us to do the best hair in Dallas.

Female Hair Loss

Female Hair Loss

Female Hair Loss

Female hair loss is more common than people realize. It can also be harder for women to deal with it. In our society a man who is bald may look stylish. However, there isn’t any such trend that seems to accept it for women. That is why women have to take efforts to protect their hair.

Over processing hair with colors, perms, heating irons, straighteners, and blow dryers can also cause female hair loss. When the hair shafts are damaged and broken you will find that hair becomes brittle and breaks off. Not using all of those products on your hair can help it to do better.

Some women have very thin hair due to genetics and that is a concern too. It makes it hard for them do cover up the thinning areas. Over 30 million women have a genetic link to thinning hair and hair loss. They struggle to do what they can to maintain their hair. Many women feel that they have to go short and spiky to be able to cover up the problem. They don’t really like that look but they feel they may be limited to other options.

Sometimes this means women as young as their early 20s are suffering from hair loss. It is often due to types of medications they may have to take. The side effects from such health concerns can be severe. Yet that doesn’t mean a young woman doesn’t want to have hair that looks amazing.

It is always a good idea to see the doctor when you notice that you are losing hair or that the hair you do have is thinning. There may be an underlying problem that they can help you to rectify. If the problem is genetic or linked to a medication that you can’t stop taking though you don’t have to give up.

Hair extensions can look natural and they can help reduce the problems associated with female hair loss. They can make it possible for a woman to have hair that is full and thick in spite of the fact that her own hair has been damaged. Many women suffer from hair loss due to medications or genetics but hair extensions can help to reduce the appearance of all of it.

You will find that many forms of hair extensions look just like the real thing. They don’t appear to be anything other than the natural hair of someone. They also come in various lengths and colors so that you will be able to select the look that you want. These hair extensions can reduce the amount of processing that you do to your real hair as well.

Try to avoid a weave for how they are inserted as that can also cause more hair loss or thinning. Today there are many hair extensions that can be secured in place with the use of glue or adhesive strips.



Eyebrow and Lip Wax

Eyebrow and Lip Wax

Why it is Good to have your Lip and Eyebrows Waxed at the Salon

Looking great is important as it gives us self confidence. The face is one of the areas of the body that others see right away. Keeping yourself well groomed is a great way to make an excellent impression. Waxing the unwanted hair around the lips is a good way to start. Many women have hair there that they don’t like at all and it is embarrassing to them. Waxing can take it off and help keep it off for long periods of time.

The eyebrows often have a mind of their own, and for some people they grow across the bridge of the nose. This is often referred to as a unibrow. Shaping the eyebrows so that they look very nice is something that can help a person to have facial features that look amazing.

When it comes to waxing the lips and eyebrows though you should have it done at Muse salon. First, the wax that you work with can be quite messy and that is why doing it at home is such a chore. If you don’t have a quality product to work with then you may find it doesn’t help you to remove the hair as you had attended. Getting that wax to the right temperature at home is also difficult.

If it isn’t hot enough then it is just a gooey mess for you to work with. However, if that wax is too hot then you risk burning yourself. Don’t underestimate what that can do to the skin. It can even result in blisters forming due to the burned area.

When you get your lips and eyebrows waxed at Muse salon though you can feel good about the experience. They will be using quality wax and they have it at the right temperature. They are experienced with how to apply it too so that you don’t have to worry about burns occurring.

When you are waxing the lips on your own you can work at it until you remove all of the hair. Yet when you do your eyebrows it is a completely different story. If you end up getting wax in the wrong areas you can result in your eyebrows looking uneven. Then it can take a very long time for them to grow in so that you can repair them.

The number of people that come to the salon in a panic after waxing their own eyebrows is very high. In most instances though we can do is remove more of the eyebrows to make them even and maybe even offer some tips for penciling them in for a while.

When you get your eyebrows waxed at a salon though you won’t have to worry about problems like that.  You can tell me what look you want and I will do it. Some clients only want to have their eyebrows defined and others want to have a completely different look with them.

It can be fun to allow me to do something creative with your eyebrows. I even have a few photos you can look at too. Then you can choose what you would like the finished look to be. You can even bring along your own photos to show me if there is something in particular that you have in mind. See you at Muse Salon shortly 🙂


Moroccan Oil

Moroccan Oil

Moroccan Oil

I give out free Moroccan Oil at the salon to my Dallas clients that get Klix Hair Extensions so I figured it would be a good idea to fill you in on the product line. You cannot get this product in any of the stores around Dallas (yet). All of the things we do to our hair such as styling it and coloring it can result in damage occurring. Even being out on the wind and the sunlight can make hair dry and lifeless. If you often use rollers or a blow dryer then you can also be damaging it. This seems like a never ending circle though because we often do what we do to our hair to make it lively and appealing.

Moroccan Oil can help you to restore life and beauty to your hair. It doesn’t matter what you have done to damage it. Too many products out there that help with one issue for your hair have harsh ingredients in them. The trade off ends up being that you do more damage overall. With Moroccan Oil though you can benefit from all natural ingredients that aren’t going to add to that damage.

After using this product for a short period of time you are going to notice some dramatic changes. For example your hair will be revitalized and healthy looking. It is going to feel great too! Your hair is going to get stronger and healthier the more you use it. If you are trying to grow your hair out damage such as split ends can be preventing that from happening.

With Moroccan Oil though you can restore the beauty and health to your hair. Then it will grow for you and look amazing. This product also helps to reduce the amount of time it takes to dry your hair. Then you may be able to stop using the blow dryer each morning to get your day started. If you do have to use a blow dryer you won’t need to apply the heat as long as you did before. This is a way that Moroccan Oil helps to prevent future damage to your hair.

Stop looking at other people and wishing you had hair that looked like theirs. With the use of Moroccan Oil you can start transforming your hair. It is going to be soft, manageable, strong, and look wonderful. You will find that you are able to continue with the fun of versatile styles and colors too.

Make sure you check out all of the different products that Moroccan Oil offers too. If you have fine hair then you will find products made just for you. If you have frizzy hair they also offer products that help to tame it. There are products to help with defining curl so that you love them instead of trying to make your hair straight all the time.

If you have dry hair the hydrating products by Moroccan Oil are there for you as well. This is a great way for you to get your hands on what you want in no time at all. There are also products offered for dry scalp to help you alleviate itching and flaking. There are products for every hair concern that you may have.

You will find that the best ingredients are found in all of the Moroccan Oil products. They are also affordable so you won’t pay a fortune to get gorgeous hair. Yet you are going to look like you did. Don’t be surprised if you start getting many compliments on your hair when you are out and about in Dallas once you start using them.

Your Dallas Wedding and Hair Salon

Your Dallas Wedding and Hair Salon

Your Dallas Wedding and Hair Salon

On your wedding day in Dallas all eyes will be on you. One of the things that you may be stressed about is how to wear your hair. Should you wear it up or should you wear it down? Of course the length of your hair can play a role in that as well. Don’t allow your wedding day hair to be something you leave until the last minute.

In fact, you should be thinking about how you are going to wear your hair before you buy your headpiece. The decision to wear a veil, a crown, or other item can play a role in what type of hair style you will have. Even an open back wedding dress can help you to decide to wear your hair up so that everyone can see that part of the remarkable dress you selected.

It is a good idea to talk to me many months before your wedding. I can schedule appointments for you to get new looks. This can allow you time to decide what you like. Do you want your hair long and flowing or curly? Do you want your hair put up and in a brilliant and elegant twist?

By having these appointments in advance you will know what you want before the big day arrives. You can also see how long the look with last. Some people have magnificent curls for example when they leave the hair salon. However, in a few hours they start to frizz due to the humidity. That isn’t a look that will be appealing when you get to the wedding reception!

I am writing this article  because my goal is to do your hair for your wedding day. I am willing to do early morning appointments to accommodate your special day. I can also do the hair for the entire bridal party if you would like. That can be a gift you give those in the wedding if you would like.

Your wedding day is your special day and one that you will never forget. Therefore you need to do what you can to communicate the appearance you want to your me. Bring along photos of looks you want to try and even pictures of your wedding dress. All of this will also help me to give you some great tips and pointers you may be interested in.

Determining how your hair will look for your wedding should be taken care of before the big day arrives. Avoid getting a drastic hair cut or style change in the days right before you get married. You don’t want to feel self conscious about the look. Your wedding photos need to be something you feel proud to put on display

I will definitely go the distance when it comes to helping to making your wedding day very special. Give me the time I need though to get you in and to experiment with your hair. Then you can feel confident that on your wedding day when all eyes are on you everyone will be saying what a pretty bride you are.

Please note that at this moment I do not perform Bridal Services but I have a great referral for you
