Our second annual Pretty for a Purpose charity event on March 5, 2019, was another huge success! Together we raised $1,496 for Cleveland Rape Crisis Center!
For a donation of $49, each client received a hairstyle touch-up by the Azure Salon team, a professional headshot by Thomas Cooke Photography, and a makeup touch-up and skin care consultation by Nannette Short and her Mary Kay team. Plus they received personal image tips from image consultant Pat Gibson, owner of The Artistry of You and health tips from health coach Shanna Dunbar, President of Workplace Heath, Inc.
The Cleveland Rape Crisis Center supports survivors of rape and sexual abuse, promotes healing and prevention, and advocates for social change. Each year, more than 36,000 people, one-third of them youth, find support by participating in the Center’s counseling, advocacy and education programs in Cuyahoga County and surrounding counties.

Thank you to everyone who helped make this event a success and made a difference in our community. We truly appreciate your generosity. Don’t miss our upcoming events and promotions, get social and like us on Facebook!
Spring is FINALLY here, and so is spring break! Here is our list of 4 hair care essentials you won’t want to forget to pack in your bags for your next vacay.
Hair Ties: From rising humidity to bad hair days, a hair tie can save the day! Hair scarves and scrunchies have made a come back so get creative. Just make sure to pack plenty because we are all still trying to solve the mystery on where all the missing hair ties go.
Dry Shampoo: When you are traveling there is never enough time to give your hair the attention it deserves. Our Goldwell Kerasilk Dry Shampoo will freshen your hair in seconds, so that you can spend more time having fun in the sun!
Hair Spray: Want your hair looking picture ready all day long? Our Goldwell Stylesign Perfect Hold Hair Spray will help hold your hairstyle in place no matter what your spring break plans are.
Wet Brush: If you aren’t careful, using a harsh brush on your hair could cause some unwanted damage. With a mixture of chlorine and salt water, your hair could be more susceptible to breakage. The wet brush is soft and is designed for wet hair. Be gentle on your locks!
Typically, professional products are more concentrated and have a higher level of ingredients that produce true results. This allows you to use less and receive more noticeable results. Protect your investment with the best possible products!
2. Guaranteed quality and results:
Your stylist is educated and knowledgeable enough to know which shampoo, conditioner, and styling products are best suited for your hair type. We properly consult to understand your routine to make sure we recommend products that are perfect for you.
When buying products from a drug store, you are taking a guess and more likely spending money on products that will not give you the results you need. Your stylist knows their brands and guarantees you’ll love them. If not, you are always welcome to bring it back and we let us help you try something new.
If you love your stylist and your salon, you’ll be happy to hear that purchasing your home hair care products from them actually helps the salon earn education classes from the product manufactures. It is your hair care purchases that grant us the resources we need to grow and continue to improve the service experience you’ve come to enjoy.
We want your hair looking just as good at home as it did leaving the salon! Goldwell Dualsenses, Kerasilk and KMS products are formulated to benefit and enhance your new color, highlight, or perm better than any other brand. We are proud to be a Goldwell exclusive salon.
We all know that one size never fits all. We are all unique and that applies to our hair too!
Stylists use their years of education and passionate dedication to hair to custom mix color that will be perfect just for you. There are many factors that get taken into account when mixing a formula, such as texture, tone, and any pre-existing damage. Box color is made to alter a wide range of hair types and shades with ultimately no guaranteed outcome.
There is nothing like professional application:
In order to keep your hair healthy and avoid color bleeding and spotty coverage, color must be precisely applied. It is nearly impossible to see what your stylist sees. Professional stylists have the ability to apply the color close the root to give you maximum coverage, especially grey hair.
There is always a chance your hair will have a negative reaction to the hair color, possibly doing more harm than good. Box color does not include all of the hair protecting agents that the professionals know to mix and carefully apply to your formula.
Box color typically fades much faster than professional hair color, this is especially true when going from dark to light. It is almost guaranteed to leave you with unwanted brassiness that will take multiple treatments to correct. The best option is to skip the box, and start with the professionals!
You get what you pay for:
When it comes to hair color, unlike most things, you actually get what you pay for. If you run into undesired results, or end up with damaged hair, it is probably time to seek out a professional. The money spent on corrective color can be quite a sacrifice and many times it takes more than one visit to get your hair looking great again.
It’s our job, as salon professionals, to give you the look that you desire and help you maintain healthy hair. Be sure to communicate with your stylist to come up with a hair maintenance plan that is good for your hair and your wallet!

Why the Beach Wave?
The trend is undeniable, providing long-lasting, soft, natural waves. The Beach Wave is a product solution and service designed to provide long-lasting, soft, natural waves. Our technique and formula allows you to achieve this long-lasting luxurious look quickly and easily.
How it Works
Cysteamine, a natural amino acid, gently realigns the hair’s internal bonds to give long-lasting waves. Beach Wave infuses hair with silk and keratin amino acids, strengthens, protects and adds shine.

Does Olaplex really make a difference? The answer is ABSOLUTELY!
Olaplex is a Bond Multiplier that rebuilds broken disulfide bonds and begins the process of preventing damage and repairing hair. It activates with color by reconstructing your hair bonds at the same time as the color which dramatically reduces breakage with every color service.
It is important to remember that Olaplex is not a conditioner. Conditioners are cosmetic whereas Olaplex works internally. Moisture and protein are entirely separate issues that should be addressed separately.
