Telltale Signs Of Over-The-Hill By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

There was a woman who was so insecure without her make-up, she would cover her face and run to the bathroom after a facial.

No joke. And to make matters worse, the make-up she wore was heavy and obvious. That’s not good at any age. But at her age, it was worse!

As we get older, we sometimes get stuck in…well, old patterns. We still feel the same but our bodies have changed. Hate that, don’t you?

Here are three telltale mistakes that signal somebody’s stuck in a flashback:

– Ring around the face make-up. Wearing the wrong shade of make-up that ends in a ring under the chin. Make-up should always blend flawlessly with your skin tone.

– The cosmetic counter look. Too much make-up is often worn to hide facial imperfections and to cover a poor self-esteem. Unfortunately, overdone is, well, overdone.

– Trying to look way younger than you are. Yes, most of us mourn the loss of our youth, too. But sporting very young fashion make-up trends won’t bring it back. It will only draw attention to the grieving process!

Instead, consider corrective facials. Take the work out of getting ready in the mornings. Let facials and other medical treatments work for you.

And get a make-up consult for an updated look. You’ll love how young you feel!

Who’s That Pain In Your Neck? (And What To Do About It) By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

You know that stabbing pain in your neck? Well, it’s trying to tell you something. If you haven’t quite figured out what it is, we can…HELP!

Yes, any pain in your body is a cry for help. The funny thing is each body part has a different message.

Neck—Stiffness and tightness can indicate resistance, usually to other ways of thinking.

Shoulders—This is where you carry the weight of your responsibilities. It, too, can indicate resistance, perhaps to pressure(s) to perform or produce.

Low Back—This area is related to your notions of survival, security, and self-support. If you’re feeling like you can’t meet other people’s expectations that pressure can show up in this area.

Butt—Believe it or not, the glutes are often the most tense and clenched muscles in the body. This area has to do with elimination and release. Issues of control and power are often stored here.

We’re all pretty good at towing the line and pushing through to get the job done. The problem is, you can only do that for so long until your body starts sending pain messages.

The stress we deal with today never stops, unlike our caveman ancestors. The good news is massage has been clinically proven to break that “fight or flight” response we humans are so famous for.

This highly respected and valuable therapy stops over production of the stress hormone, cortisol, by breaking the destructive stress cycle. It actually re-programs your body and how it responds to stress!

Think about it. How many times have you said, “I wish this didn’t bother me so much?”

Well, here’s your answer, regular massage therapy. Feeling good is your birthright and it’s how you combat the daily pounding of stress.

Let it all go for one hour and get back a healthier, satisfying life!

The official name for brittle nails is onychoschizia. But no matter what you call them, they rank at the top of the list for embarrassment and frustration.

Brittle nails are usually soft and thin. They might grow but then they split and peel. Ruling out serious health problems, brittle nails are usually the result of an inadequate diet and/or overexposure to chemicals, excessive hand washing, housecleaning, and so on.

In other words, life.

But there is good news! Opting to care for your hands and nails can reap big rewards. Half of that care comes with regular manicures. Our professionally trained nail technician will clean, file and trim, shape, and buff your nails to a high shine.

Buffing your nails actually promotes blood flow in the nail bed, which promotes healthy nail growth. And that’s what you want!

Our technician will also suggest a nail strengthener to fortify and strengthen your nails. This is very important because it protects fragile nails while rebuilding them.

The other half of nail care comes in the form of nutrition. Nails need plenty of protein, B vitamins and C. Make sure you eat real food that supports building healthy nails and body.

If your nails are causing you problems, we can help. Make an appointment today!

Top 5 Most Common Hair Mistakes Solved! By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Sometimes in the pursuit of healthy, shiny hair, we find that our clients unknowingly sabotage their efforts! So we thought we would set the record straight.

Here are the top 5 hair care mistakes we see.

Mistake #1- Only Conditioning The Ends Of Your Hair

Women mistakenly think that conditioner should be applied to the lower half of their hair because it “weighs it down.” Choose one that is right for your hair texture and let ALL of your hair enjoy the benefit.

Mistake #2-Not Using A Heat Protective Styling Product

With all the heat that is applied to hair, this one is an absolute MUST. Hot tools can cause breakage, making your hair feel dry and brittle. Insulate it! Using a heat protecting spray before you style.

Mistake #3-Skipping Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatments

This one is crucial, especially if you are not using a daily conditioner properly. Deep conditioning helps to fill in any holes, as well as repair roughed up patches of hair. It works instantly to strengthen and soften.

Mistake #4-Rough Towel Drying

You’re late for work so you’re rubbing your hair wildly. Unfortunately, it won’t speed up the towel drying time. Instead, spritz detangling spray all over. Then squeeze out water with a super soft towel. Now your hair is a cinch to comb!

Mistake #5-Tearing Through Knots With A Brush

It’s tempting, when you’re in a hurry, to race through brushing your hair. But for hair that is prone to knotting, it’s the worst possible idea! Instead, start from the bottom up to loosen knots. The best trick to prevent knot-proned hair? A daily conditioner.

See, it’s not that hard to have beautiful hair. Got questions? We’re here to help!

Thinking About Going Blonde? Here’s What You Should Know! By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Have you been itching to go blonde?

That’s a good sign that you’re really ready to make the change, especially if you’re holding magazine pictures up to the mirror, wondering, “How would this look on me?”

Well, before you take the life-changing leap, there are a few things to consider before you make the color change:

• It’s best to match your new color to your skin tone, brows, and eye color. Hair color that is coordinated to compliment your natural coloring looks far more natural.

• Some hair types, like fine and thin, simply can’t handle foiling, much less traditional bleaching. There is too much danger of extreme dryness, brittleness and possible breakage. It may be that tinting is more suitable.

• For brunettes wanting to go blonde, be patient! To reach the level blonde that’s a knock out for you, it’s important to take it at a pace that’s easiest on your hair. That’s why we recommend foiling over bleaching. The latter is just too harsh.

• For natural redheads, your blonde hue will be a golden and lovely strawberry in the beginning. A slow, deliberate diversity of tones will flatter your face.

We also recommend that you start with healthy hair. Dry, damaged, or slightly porous hair will take a little longer to color because we don’t want to damage it further.

Your blonde color requires maintenance treatments to keep it looking beautiful. Deep condition it weekly. Have your stylist also professionally deep condition it for maximum body, bounce, and shine.

Use styling products that contain polymers, which create a film around the hair to protect it from moisture loss.

And finally, apply home care products with a panthenol- based formula to also moisturize the hair inside and out.

We’ve got you covered. So, if you’re going to go blonde, be the bomb!

Don’t Panic If Your Child Has Head Lice! By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

No parent ever wants to deal with head lice. The very thought is disgusting, isn’t it?

But it happens.

Panicking won’t solve anything, but it could cause you to over treat the problem as well as create anxiety in your child. (“I’ve got bugs in my hair!”)

If it does happen, you need to know right away that head lice are not caused by a lack of good hygiene. That’s a myth.

Nor is it transferred to or from pets. It’s strictly a human infestation that is passed directly with head-to-head contact.

That’s why it’s commonly seen in youngsters 3-11 years of age. Children like to huddle together to tell secrets, hug, or put their heads together to read a book.

Certainly, you don’t want t to teach your child to be phobic about touching other kids. Just teach them that some things are not meant for sharing. For example, brush, comb, scarves and hats.

To treat head lice, purchase an anti-lice shampoo such as Rid or Nix. Shampoo and leave in for one-minute, then rinse out. Follow up with a second shampoo seven days later. This is extremely important because it will kill any eggs that were hatched in the interim. (Yes, it’s gross to think about it!)

While your child’s hair is still wet, comb the hair with a lice comb to pull out the nits, or eggs.

If shampooing with over-the-counter anti-lice shampoo does not kill the infestation, consult your pediatrician for a stronger product.

Remember, head lice are the equivalent of fleas on pets. It’s not the end of the world. With treatment, you’ll get through this just fine.

4 Key Questions To Ask Before Getting A Brazilian Wax By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

Mythology abounds on how scary it is to get a Brazilian. The topic even makes for some good raunchy comedy.

So, if you’re one of those women that just hates hair “down there,” you owe it to yourself to get accurate information before you schedule your appointment.

That’s where we come in.

Here’s our list of recommendations for a smooth, beautiful Brazilian.

• Don’t be shy about asking for the technician’s qualifications. Where did she get her training. How long has she been doing Brazilians? Does she have any testimonials?

• Ask about the type of wax used. You want a hard wax. This is best for Brazilians. Make sure the wax adheres only to the hair, not to the skin. Otherwise, your pain factor will be greatly magnified.

• Ask about hygienic practices. What is used to prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi, and the like? How do they ensure your health safety and that of the technician? Is everything disposable?

• Ask about topical pain relief. Do they have a topical to apply to reduce pain? Do they have recommendations for reducing pain before you get to your appointment?

Any reputable spa will welcome these questions and encourage more. We sure do!

We love to show, with enormous pride, our technique for Brazilian waxing, our hygiene practices, our experience, and the top-of-the-line wax we use to ensure a great experience for you!

No, we haven’t lost our minds. Although we do admit that these cocktails will make you tipsy!

We love microdermabrasion because of the quick, long lasting results. When combined with other professional treatments like Intense Pulsed Light or chemical peels, the results are even quicker and more remarkable.

From acne, rosacea, broken capillaries, spider veins, uneven skin tone, and so much more, our cocktails can easily be taken on a lunch hour. Then it’s back to work!

But do be careful. You’re likely to feel a bit besotted when you leave. There’s nothing like looking in the mirror and really liking the woman staring back at you.

We’re ready when you are!

Skin Care Excuses That Clog Your Pores By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

We get it. Almost every person on the planet is trying to find more time in his or her day.

So what happens? Skincare gets pushed to the back of the “to do” list. We hate when that happens! It usually means our client is on overload.

Taking care of your skin does NOT have to be labor intensive. See if any of these excuses sound familiar.

Skincare products are too expensive. Spa skincare lines do cost more than drugstore brands, and there is a reason.

Spa lines are more potent and last much longer. Not only are they a better value, the results are quicker. Lose this silly notion in a hurry!

There are too many products. It’s confusing. There are a lot of products on the market. But that’s where a skincare consultation will serve you well! We can target exactly what you need, taking out the guesswork completely.

I don’t have time for a complete skincare routine. This means something different to almost everyone. That’s why we tailor your product usage to your lifestyle. We’ll provide you only with what you will use!

I’m too lazy to put on SPF everyday. Seriously?

Ease up a bit, okay? Put yourself at the top of the list where you belong!

Is This Causing Your Frequent Bad Hair Days? By Beauty Salon Tamworth – Call Us On 02 6766 6707

You probably don’t think much about your scalp, especially if you’re having multiple bad hair days.

However, sometimes the problems with your hair start with your scalp!

Believe it or not, your scalp is more delicate than you think. It needs to be nourished just like your hair.

That’s one big reason we don’t recommend conditioning just the ends of your hair. You’re just drying out your scalp.

Even oily hair needs scalp conditioning for top hair performance. And fine hair?

You should notice thicker hair after three months. But wait there’s more!

Using the right shampoo and conditioner is only half the answer.

Equally important to the process is massage. You’re not only removing dead skin cells and excess oil, you’re boosting circulation, just like exercise does for your body.

Remember to use the balls of your fingers when you massage, not your nails, which simply scratch your scalp.

Give it two weeks to see an initial difference. We think you’ll love the results!
