Venus’ Featured Products

We are all about a fresh, new look. And for spring, that usually means lighter, more multidimensional hair color! Lumino Contrast Shampoo and Masque becomes the go-to! It targets highlighted hair (which tents to be a little more porous and dehydrated), adding vitamin E and UV filters that ultimately creates a brighter , more reflective finish. Then we come to our 10-in-1 spray! This spray is 10 benefits in 1 and acts as a fantastic detangler, UV filters, as well as adds amazing condoning agents to the hair to help eliminate that “Midwest frizz”.   Also on trend for spring is more organic, unpolished texture. (because let’s face it… by now we are all fantasizing about being on the beach with […]

Our Little Hair Color Secret…

In an ideal world, those of us who didn’t want grey hair could keep our natural color for as long as we’d like. But realistically, as we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. Each hair follicle contains a certain amount of pigment cells that constantly produce a chemical called “melanin”.

The solutions? If your hair is darker, going lighter or adding dimension into your hair with highlights will help soften and blend in the grey. This way, […]

Fancy Pony

When you work in the salon industry, being up to date and on trend is important. Our guests look to us for advice on the latest fashions, hairstyles and makeup trends. One hot trend, the pony. Now, this isn’t just a regular ponytail. We have to fancy it up a bit. Wrapping your pony with a piece of hair so that you can’t see the elastic band is the most popular way to dress it up. Just take a piece of hair and wrap around and place a bobby pin through the ponytail to secure it. If you have fine or slick hair sometimes a bobby pin won’t stay secure all day.    Another option is to bend a hair […]
