Who is it for?

  • Clients that want any reduction of frizz and curl
  • This service is the most customizable of all the treatment options and can get hair the “flattest” or can still leave hair with volume!
  • Safe for color-treated hair
  • This service is not recommend for clients with overly-damaged hair

How long does it last?
3-5 months, depending on hair type, lifestyle, maintenance and adherence to all aftercare instructions. Has been shown to last even up to 8 months!

What is the maintenance?

  • 72-hour waiting period before hair can be wet or washed.
  • Must avoid making any impressions on the hair with pins, clips, elastics, bands, ponytail holders, hats, sunglasses, etc for the first 72 hours.
  • Avoid using shampoos and products that contain Sodium Chloride and sodium lauryl sulfate.
  • Avoid salt water and chlorine (the ocean and swimming pools, hot tubs, etc.)
  • We recommend Bumble and Bumble’s Straight, Hairdresser’s Oil, Color Minded or Uberliss Shampoo.

What are the benefits?

  • Smoother and silkier
  • Straighter and shinier
  • Blocks the effects of humidity
  • Easier and faster to blowdry

With each treatment and with proper at-home maintenance and products, you can actually build-up the keratin on the hair strand to keep the hair even smoother over time. The Uberliss shampoo and conditioner also help build up extra keratin into the hair!

What is the cost and service time?
This service starts at $199 for the regular treatment and $249 for the Ultra. The price is increased based on the length and density of the hair; there is a density charge per ounce of extra product used.

This treatment takes approximately 2-3 hours.

Any other useful info?
We recommend getting the treatment done approximately 1-2 weeks after and 1-2 week before a color service. The cleansing shampoo can make color fade so try to plan and schedule getting your smoothing treatment 1-2 weeks before you are due for a touch-up, then we can refresh your color with your touch-up appointment!

We always highly recommend getting a hair cut since the hair does lie differently after a smoothing treatment and split ends will be much more visible.

The treatment can be done as often as every 6 weeks.

It is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women. Although it has not been found to be harmful, Head Candy takes the health of our clients and their unborn/newborn children very seriously and will not take the risk!

The 50’s Head Candy Collection

Fall Winter Head Candy Collection The 50’s

Several times every year the entire staff gets together to work on a new collection, and it is hard to believe that this is only our 2nd full collection together! I spend a few weeks carefully thinking about a theme that will not only inspire the entire staff, but will also inspire our clients, and will showcase the team’s talents, along with the ability to display the latest trends in cut, color, and styling. I announce the theme at our twice-yearly team meeting, and have everyone draw names to choose their teammates. The staff knows there is always a method to my madness, and I like having them choose teammates randomly so they get the opportunity to work with new people on a regular basis. It is great for moral and team building, and helps everyone to learn and grow by constantly working with different people.

The theme this time was vintage styles. We randomly chose decades from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s and 90’s and gave them a “Candy Remix” or a modern update. Since vintage styles are always coming back around again, I thought it would be a fun way for the team to put their own personal twist on updating these classics with a more modern edge using today’s techniques. We get so many requests for vintage styling, especially for weddings, and there seems to be a major surge of vintage adoration everywhere we look. With shows like Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire, Masters of Sex, and Downton Abbey, everyone seems to be longing for more simple times and classic beauty.

This time I called in Danielle Lambersky, a very special makeup artist that I’ve worked with on several projects before. She is amazingly talented and I absolutely adore her! I also decided to work with Jillian Goodman of Jillian Kathryn Photography for our third project together, since we seem to be making such an amazing team!

We hope you love these vintage inspirations as much as we do and our Candy Remixes on the classics! We work hard to not just stay on top of the latest trends, but to also help start the next hottest trends to keep all of you ahead of the game! We absolutely love what we do and it wouldn’t be possible without you and your support!

Finally it is the last in our collection– The 50’s! We would also like to give a big shoutout to Nick Grice over at Nordstrom’s in Cherry Hill for help in styling the 1950’s collection! He did a great job helping us find wardrobe for this collection!

 

 

The 50’s

Hair: Robin Dorton & Kristin Pellegrino
Models: Allie Robinson, Jessica Minton, Brendan Moffat

The 1950’s were booming. Booming economy, babies were booming and the new suburbs were booming. Elvis was King, James Dean was our hero, and Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe won our hearts on the big screen. Circle skirts with soft sweaters, wool coats, Levi’s and the classic white tee were the favorites of fashion, with perfectly coifed updo’s and roller set styles keeping women looking their best while they kept the house clean and the tummies full. But life wasn’t all poodle skirts and sock hops. Rosa Parks made history in the 50’s, while paving the way for Civil Rights. The Cold War threatened our way of life and communists were not to be trusted. Yet with all that is happening in today’s society and the global threats we see on the news every night, wouldn’t it be so  peachy to just get dolled up and head to the drive in for a soda pop with James, Audrey, and Marilyn?

 

 

Jess (Marilyn Monroe Remix)Jess before and after 1a web

Kristin decided that a modern day Marilyn wouldn’t just be a normal platinum blonde, but to give her a real Head Candy remix, she would have to be more of a Rose Gold with light violet accents! She prelightened her hair and then toned her with a custom mixed toner for that perfect modern rose-violet platinum! Her styling was kept more classic, close to the original, but with more modern movement and softer curls. We love the results!

 

 

 

 

 

Allie before and after 1 web

Allie (Audrey Hepburn Remix)

Robin loved Allie’s look from the second she first saw her picture, and just knew that she would make the perfect modern day Audrey! She is cute as a button and an absolute sweetheart so she fit the role perfectly! Robin thought that a more updated Audrey wouldn’t just have solid dark brown hair, but would probably love the uber modern balayage highlights that all the darker-haired celebrities are wearing now. So she hand-painted lots of balayage highlights around Allie’s face and crown area, toning with a rich warm medium brown for a perfect sun-kissed look! Then she cut the dead ends off the bottom and gave her long layers with a straight razor cut with plenty of face-framing to really open up space and add lots of movement to the hair.

 

 

 

Brendan (James Dean Remix)

It’s not often that you put a call out for a male model that can pull of playing the role of an icon like James Dean, while being open enough to let you have your way with his hair. For several months Robin looked everywhere. She searched through her network of models, contacted a few local agencies and photographers, sent a mass text out to everyone she knew, and came up with nothing. Then one day she called her husband at work and told him to check out all the servers at his restaurant and see if anyone could possibly fit the bill. He sent a picture of Brendan and that was that. Not only does he obviously have those rugged good looks, but he also let her cut his hair any way she needed to for this photo shoot. He turned out to be the perfect model for this role, and we are quite sure you will be seeing his face again in future shoots here at Head Candy, and possibly other places too. A star just might’ve been born!

 

 

 

 

We hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane! Enjoy the rest of your stay at the soda counter!!

Only 2 more to go! Now is the 60’s!

The 60’s

Hair: Melissa Kenny and Jamie Tate
Models: Crystal, Sarah, Greg and Ryan

The assassinations of both President Kennedy and Martin Luther King, Jr., the Vietnam war, Civil Rights for African Americans, women, and gays were all part of the radical 1960’s. Hippies wanted peace and free love, women wanted equal pay, minorities wanted equal treatment. We had Janis Joplin, The Doors, Rolling Stones and Jimi Hendrix giving us unheard of music that still stirs something in our souls. Flower power and the smiley face were found on everything. Elvis and The Beatles had millions of women screaming and passing out. In the summer of 1969, more than 400,000 hopeful people trooped to upstate NY to be part of a harmonious 3-days known as Woodstock. Throw on your finest fringe vest and put a flower in your hair as you groove along this peaceful journey!

 The 80’sEmily before and after 80'sweb

Hair: Tronisha Robinson and Christina Giannisi
Model: Emily Gazzara

The 80’s were a happy little decade caught between social activism and self-loathing grunge. We had 2 Coreys and Kirk Cameron as our sexiest men alive, Madonna and Michael beginning their reign as King and Queen, Cabbage Patch Kids, Risky Business, 99 Luft Balloons, Punk rock making its way from London, and every kid needed a boom box. Those 80’s trends are constantly making their way back in the latest trends and we just can’t seem to let go of this decade! Luckily these are now considered classic vintage so it is like totally cool to rock those duds again, but in smaller doses as accessories. Just please leave the blonde frosted highlights and feathered bangs in the past with your banana clips!

The 90’s

Hair: Alexis Jimenez and Payal Surti
Models: Brian and Sommer

It may seem hard to believe that the 1990’s can even be considered a vintage decade, but it is indeed true that some of these trends are already 24 years old!

Music from N’SYNC, Backstreet Boys, MC Hammer, Courtney & Kurt, the Spice Girls & Britney Spears gave us a wide range of music from mainstream pop to dark and edgy grunge rock. Movies and TV including Friends, 90210, Clueless, Fresh Prince, and Saved by the Bell started the style trends that influenced millions around the world. We all wore those low crotch Hammer pants, overalls with one strap undone, bright patterns, and a few of us even wore our pants backwards to be like a pair of very young rapping one-hit-wonders. If you didn’t wear your hair in twisties or scrunchies, have the “Rachel haircut”, or a massive collection of butterfly clips and Pogs, you weren’t living in the 90’s!

What Your Hair Says About Your Health

What Your Hair May Be Saying About Your Health!

We are not doctors, nor do we claim to be. These are merely professional stylist’s research and findings over many years of experience that we’d like to pass on to our clients. When in doubt, seek the guidance of your physician! But if you’d like some general ideas of what your hair might be saying about your health, read on!

Problem: Dry, limp, thin-feeling hair1

What it may be telling you: Many factors can lead to overly dry hair, including home hair coloring, blowdryers, curling or flat irons, swimming in chlorinated water. But a significant change in texture that leaves hair feeling finer than usual, can be an indicator of an underactive thyroid, known as hypothyroidism. This doesn’t mean that you’re losing a lot of hair, but more that each individual hair is becoming finer and weaker. See your physician to find out if there is a health concern. We recommend DS Labs Revita Shampoo and Cor Conditioner to help with hair thinning.

 

Problem: Scaly or crusty patches on the scalp2

What it is telling you: When a thick crust forms on the scalp, this usually indicates psoriasis, which can be distinguished from other dandruff-like skin conditions by the presence of a thickening, scab-like surface. Psoriasis affects nearly 7.5 million Americans and is the most common autoimmune disease. The discovery that you have psoriasis should alert you to the possibility of a more serious condition. Approximately 30% of people with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis, or have another autoimmune disease. It also puts you at increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. There are plenty of ingredients that can relieve psoriasis, and it may take some time to find the treatment that works best for you. A few of the ingredients to look for relief include coal tar, zinc, salicylic acid, aloe vera, hydrocortisone creams, and vitamin D. Once you get your health checked out, see a Dermatologist for treatment options. And don’t be embarrassed or afraid to get your hair done! We are professionals with many years of experience and have seen plenty of cases of psoriasis. Just let us know ahead of time and alert us to any medicated shampoos you need to bring with you for us to use!

 

Problem: Hair falling out in small, circular patches3

What it says about your health: We know this as alopecia areata. This happens when the immune system attacks and shrinks hair follicles, causing hair to fall out, usually in small round patches. Diabetes is the most common trigger for this condition. It can continue to spread, causing hair loss over a large area, or over the entire body. We’ve had a few clients that have found great success with our DS Labs products. We can also help by giving a style that helps to blend in those patches, and we can even use the amazing Hotheads extensions to fill in thin areas.

 

Problem: Yellowish flakes and scaly, itchy patches

What it says about your health: Most of us know this as dandruff, with the technical 4name being seborrheic dermatitis. It is a chronic inflammatory condition of the scalp and is an interaction of health issues that deserve to be taken seriously. This condition causes skin to develop scaly patches, often in the areas where the scalp is oiliest. When the flaky skin loosens, it leaves the telltale “dandruff” flakes. It is caused by a fungal infection due to an overgrowth of the yeast that is present on our scalps and skin. This yeast organism, known as Pityrosporum ovale, inflames irritated skin, causing excessive flakes. To see the difference between plain dry skin and seborrheic dermatitis, when skin is dry you’ll also see dry scaly skin between the eyebrows and by the sides of your nose, where as seborrheic dermatitis is mostly found on the scalp. While it is not contagious, it can be triggered by stress, oily skin, cold or dry weather, and infrequent washing. Left untreated it can cause premature hair loss and hair thinning. We have found great success using DS Labs Revita shampoo at least 3-4 times per week.

 

Problem: Traction Alopecia (Pulling hair too tight)5

What it is telling you: Change your hair style and loosen up! Pulling hair too tight in constant ponytails, cornrows, and tight headbands, can damage the fragile hair follicles around the hair line and causes hair to break and fall out. Changing your hairstyle usually lets hair grow back. Pulling hair back tightly for a long time, though, can lead to permanent hair loss!

 

How to maintain hair and scalp health: Eating healthy is not only good for our bodies, it’s also good for our hair and scalp. Salmon and walnuts with omega-3 fatty acids are great for shiny hair. Spinach and carrots for vitamin A, cashews for zinc, low-fat dairy, and vegetables are all great for overall skin health.

Spring Collection 2014

Welcome to Head Candy’s first full collection for Spring 2014!

Our entire staff got together in January for a full day of makeovers to present our favorite cuts, colors, and styles for Spring. We assembled into 4 teams and each team chose a candy as inspiration for the looks. It was an amazing day full of hard work, team building, creativity, and a showcase of the awesome talent that works here at Head Candy. We also wanted to give a big thanks to Chrissi, who did all of the makeup for every model in our photo shoot! We truly hope you enjoy our portfolio as much as we enjoyed assembling it for you!

Butterscotchbutterscotch1

Team Butterscotch features the work of Kristin and Payal. For their color makeover, they lightened the model to a pale blonde and added lowlights in soft butterscotch and golden tones for depth and dimension. They finished with her cut by transforming it into a trendy short pixie with plenty of textureJanet Makeover! For their men’s look they did a super short classic fade with a defined side part, which is right on trend for 2014! It has a hint of that great vintage look that’s highly requested in the salon right now. The Butterscotch updo is their version of an updated 1940’s look with classic pin curls and Victory Rolls to coordinate with her adorable polka-dot dress! Nice job Payal & Kristin!

 

Candy Barcandybar2

The Candy Bar team features Alexis, Christina & Melissa. For their color makeover, they added slices of caramel highlights with great placement to really stand out when the hair is parted to the side. They also added a beautiful new chocolate base color to the hair adding amazing shine and rich dimension. They also styled her into a classic updo for the finished look, with a few soft tendrils to frame her face. Candy Bar Makeover For their men’s look they prelightened his mohawk section, toning it to a rich caramel color to really make it stand out against his natural dark base color. Bumble’s Sumotech was used to finish the style into a textured short faux hawk!

 

Nerdsnerds1

Team Nerds features the work of John and Rachel. For their color makeover, they lightened the model to a pale blonde and added multiple colors of highlights in lots of candy colors. They also gave her a new shorter classic bob cut with lots of soft layers for movement. For the men’s cut they used the model’s natural texture to add the height they wanted, while cleaning up the sides and nape to a short clipper cut, keeping him groomed and polished. Nerds makeover Their updo is an oh-so-cute side bun with lots of pin-curls and a side swept bang in a super nerdy girl fashion. And let’s not forget the glasses and suspenders for nerd prowess!

 

Cotton Candycottoncandy1

Team Cotton Candy features the work of Robin and Tronisha.They loved the idea of choosing Cotton Candy to feature the exaggerated texture they could get with natural curly hair, while having the opportunity to use lots of the soft pastel and candy colors that are so trendy right now in the salon, and all over the world!

For Robin’s first color makeover on Jess, the entire head was prelightened to pale blonde. Jess makeoverShe then added slices going around the head in pinks, purples, candy greens, and blues. The roots were toned to a lavendar, while the midlengths and ends were toned to a pale blonde with a hint of lavendar. She then gave Jess ultra-chic blunt bangs and a new bob, with a few long tendrils hanging over for interest.

 

For Tronisha’s color makeover on Gabby, she Gab makeoverprelightened her existing dark roots, pulling the lightener through the rest of the hair for the last few minutes of processing time in order to get rid of the unwanted brassy yellow tones. She then weaved different shades of purples, blues, and slate grays through her new bangs, while toning the rest of the hair to a soft pale blonde with a subtle hint of violet. She played with different textures on her styling, giving her smooth and sleek bangs with full blown out volume on the rest!

 

For Robin’s second color makeover, she prelightened a circular section with asymmetrical Emily makeoverplacement on the top of Emily’s head. She then added a ton of slices in various shades of fuschia, red, purple, pink, and blue, throughout the prelightened circle. The remaining hair was colored to a new deep red-plum base. Emily got a great classic Bumble blowout for those big bouncy curls that last for days!   The Cotton Candy Men’s cut features Alex from 12 oz Studios.

 

For his first style Robin picked out his natural fro to amazing height! After that he was shampooed, and Bumble and Bumble’s Curl Conscious Calming Creme was applied after the hair was sprayed with Tonic Spray! Curly hair has plenty of styling options and his hair shows it off perfectly!

FAQ’s:

Will I get a full hair consultation?headpiece

All of our packages include a full bridal trial, including hair and makeup. This will help us to get a good feel for your hair and if the look you desire will work for your hair type. It also gives us a chance to discover if any extensions will be needed, and if your chosen hair pieces, accessories, and veil will work, leaving you plenty of time to order or exchange anything that isn’t working. 

What if I’m not sure of how to wear my hair for my wedding?

Your meeting and your trial are opportunities to ask for advice and suggestions. We have an updated portfolio here on our website, along with a printed portfolio in the salon. We also have a great guide in the salon that gives suggestions on how to wear your hair depending on your dress style and neckline. You can also take some time to gather inspiring photos online and you can email them to us. Once you sign your contract with us, we make a folder just for you and your wedding, saving your contract and all important information that we need to be prepared for your big day. Any images you email to us are printed and put in your file.

How long before my wedding day should I book my trial?IMG_4729-L

We recommend approximately 2 months before your wedding day. This gives you plenty of time after your trial to order any necessary accessories, book your other appointments including touch-ups, highlights, waxing, etc.

How long before my wedding day should I have other services done?

For color, highlights and trims, we recommend 1-2 weeks. This will ensure that your color is fresh for the big day, while leaving any time needed for emergencies or color changes. For waxing services we recommend 5-7 days, which lets your skin be fresh and smooth for the day of, while ensuring that any redness or swelling has time to go away. For GelMani’s, you can have this service done the day of, or within 5-7 days.

Why are ala-carte options not available for on-location weddings?

Doing on-location weddings requires a lot of time and planning to make sure we are fully prepared with everything needed for all of the services. Some services are just not available out of the salon due to the amount of products and equipment needed, like the GelMani. We are also taking time out of a normal work day to leave the salon and our regular clients in order to travel to your location. The amount of services booked needs to compare with what can be made by working in the salon for a day. There are just too many variables with ala-carte services, and it is much easier to be organized and prepared when we know exactly what we are doing the day of your wedding!

Do I have to wear my hair up on my wedding day?

No, you can wear your hair in any style that suits you and your wedding. Most brides and bridesmaids prefer to wear their hair up so they look more formal, and they don’t have to worry about “messing” with their hair for the entire day and night. Keep in mind what the weather is going to be like on your wedding day, and how well your hair will cooperate with the weather. If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, wearing your hair down runs the risk of having it blow around during your vows if it’s windy. You also risk things like humidity wearing down your curls, causing frizz, or falling flat. These are all important things to consider when choosing your hairstyle. We will give recommendations based on your wedding date, hair type, and typical weather patterns during the different seasons.

 

How should I have my skin and hair prepared for my big day?

Arrive to the salon or to your location with clean, dry skin, wearing only your usual moisturizer. Please make sure you have removed all remnants of makeup from the day before and don’t wear any foundation, mascara, or concealers. Please also arrive with clean, dry hair. If your hair needs to be blown out straight for your updo, please either arrive with it blown out or include a blowout when booking your appointment. Blowouts are not included with updos, so be prepared to do this yourself, or to pay extra for a blowout the day of. DO NOT arrive with dirty hair and DO NOT put any products in your hair. It is a huge myth that dirty hair works best for updos! We don’t know what products you are using at home and most non-professional products are just not made for layering or for excessive brushing and styling. Having products left in the hair runs the risk of causing flakes the next day which look terrible when trying to achieve a beautiful updo. Please arrive with clean, dry hair! And don’t forget a button or zip up top!
