How Often Should You Get A Boise Manicure or Pedicure?

How Often Should You Get A Boise Manicure or Pedicure?

There’s nothing worse than leaving unDONE Salon, only to put a dent in your freshly painted nail polish. With the potential of ruining your nails doing unavoidable daily tasks, you may be wondering how often you should get a Boise manicure. While we all wish our nails would last forever, determining the answer to that question can be tricky. Not only does the amount of time between visits depend on things like the condition of your nails, and lifestyle factors but how you maintain and care for your Boise manicure in the process.

The Health of Your Nails

Look closely at your fingernails. Are they strong and healthy or are they brittle and tend to break easily? While less than desirable nail conditions can be avoided with proper nail care, others could indicate an underlying condition that needs the attention of a doctor. To keep your nails healthy and looking their best, it’s important to practice good nail hygiene by not biting your nails, picking at your cuticles or using harsh nail care products.

Lifestyle Factors

The amount of TLC your nails need depends on what you do on a daily basis. For instance, people who spend their time behind a desk probably won’t need as much nail care as say a person who spends their time working in a garden. Depending on what you do, it’s important to take in certain lifestyle factors when determining how often you should get a Boise manicure.

Bad Habits

What have you done today? Did you use your nails to open a package or pick at some chipped nail polish? Without even knowing it, the chances are pretty good that you’ve already wreaked some serious havoc on your nails. While we all have our vices, it’s important to be smart about nail care and put a stop to bad habits before they ruin your Boise manicure.

Prolonging the Effects of Your Boise Manicure

  • Choose the right length and shape
  • Avoid heat and water after a Boise manicure
  • Use a protecting topcoat
  • Don’t cut or play with your cuticles
  • Limit your use of drying hand sanitizers
  • Moisturize and apply cuticle oil daily
  • Wear gloves to protect your nails when cleaning
  • Take your vitamins!

Undone Salon

It’s important to care for your nails on a regular basis and maintain them with a Boise manicure. How long your manicure lasts, however, depends on what you do and how well you care for it. At unDONE Salon, our master nail technician “Yogi”  recommends scheduling a Boise manicure every 2-3 weeks to keep your nails looking and feeling their best. However, if you find yourself with an unexpected split, cracked or torn nail, come see us for a needed repair.

Whether you are preparing for a big event or just want to maintain a beautiful manicure, getting your nails professionally done is a great way to pamper yourself while throwing the time-consuming task of doing-it-yourself out the window.

Maintaining Your Haircolor Investment During The Summer Months

Maintaining Your Haircolor Investment During The Summer Months

Stepping out of unDONE with a fresh new look is one of the best feelings in the world. Summer, however, comes with it’s own set of challenges when it comes to maintaining a haircolor investment. Trips to the pool combined with exposure to the sun can not only discolor your hair but cause it to fade faster than normal. If you want to maintain your hair’s vibrancy throughout the summer, check out the following hair care tips for color-treated hair.

Don’t DIY Dye

Opt for a professional haircolor treatment instead of a DIY box dye. Ask your Boise hair salon stylist about the colors they would suggest and which one is more likely to last the longest. Unlike a one size fits all box dye, your Boise hair salon stylist will consider many important factors before customizing a formula with different hues in order to achieve the best haircolor possible.

Protect Your Hair

While swimming is a favorite summer pastime, a dip in the pool can wreack havoc on your haircolor. The chlorine used to disinfect and keep pool water clean can bleach your hair, causing it to turn green and dull faster than normal. If swimming is something you do often, make sure to throw your hair up in a bun to keep it from getting wet or soak it in clean water to prevent it from absorbing damaging levels of chlorine.

Cover Up

When it’s a beautiful day outside, you’ll want to spend your time outdoors. However, the sun can not only discolor your hair but leave it dry and damaged. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to cover up with a hat or go outside in the mornings or evenings when the sun is less intense. Damaging UV rays are the strongest between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm, so it’s important to protect your haircolor investment during this time.

Use Salon-Grade Products

TRUST us on this one. What you use on your hair will make a huge difference when it comes to the longevity of your haircolor. It’s important to invest in salon-grade products specially formulated for color-treated hair. Using the products your Boise hair salon stylist suggests will not only protect your haircolor investment but add shine, volume, and luster.

Rinse With Cold Water

Rinsing your hot summer skin with cool water is not only refreshing it’s good for your hair. Just like when you wash your clothes, cold water will help lock in your haircolor when you’re sudsing up. While it’s a good idea to give your hair a break by washing it every 2-3 days, it’s just as important to keep the water cool to prevent your haircolor from going down the drain.

Visit unDONE Salon

If you would like more tips on maintaining your haircolor investment throughout the summer, contact the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE. We promise to provide you with a professional haircolor that lasts, leaving you with healthier more beautiful hair in the process.

Boise Hair Salon Tips To Save Your Summer Skin

Boise Hair Salon Tips To Save Your Summer Skin

It’s summertime and the livin’s easy… From swimming to camping to outdoor concerts, everyone is making the most out of the warm weather and long days ahead. While all these activities are good for your soul, your skin may be a little less enthusiastic about the outdoor elements. That’s why unDONE Salon would like to provide you with the following tips to keep your skin healthy and beautiful all summer long.

Use Sunscreen

Even if you’re outside for a short period of time, exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can be dangerous to your skin. To maintain protection, add sunscreen to your daily, morning beauty routine. If you know you’re going to be outside for longer periods of time, take extra sunscreen with you and make sure to reapply it every couple of hours.

*Keep in mind that it’s important to use an SPF that is 30+ or higher and to shade your skin whenever possible.

Soothe The Sunburn

The first thing you need to do when fighting an unwanted sunburn is to get the inflammation to go down. Aloe vera is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps to sooth and cool the skin. Ibuprofen can also help to reduce swelling and redness. Be sure to drink lots of water since a sunburn will actually draw fluid to the skin surface and away from the rest of the body.

Exfoliate Often

Just because winter is behind us doesn’t mean you should skip out on exfoliating your skin. To maintain smooth, clear skin, gently exfoliate at least twice a week. This will help to remove any dead skin cells along with dirt, sweat and product buildup. After you exfoliate, make sure to use a hydrating cream to help seal in the moisture.

Clear Your Pores

Deep cleaning your skin with a monthly facial will help it to breath and absorb powerful serums. Hot summer temperatures trigger oil production and clog pores, especially when you wear makeup. A monthly facial will help your clear your skin while soothing sensitivity. unDONE Salon offers a variety of facial treatments to choose from that will help keep your pores healthy and your skin radiant!

Throw Away Your Razor

With the hot summer weather, we tend to wear fewer clothes which means exposing your skin to the world. If you find yourself sick of having to shave everyday it’s probably time for a body waxing treatment. Whether you’re a waxing beginner or an experienced pro, unDONE Salon offers a wide range of body waxing services to help you maintain smooth, summer skin!  

Skip the Tanning Bed

A Boise spray tan is the quickest and safest way to a gorgeous glow. Tanning beds and overexposure to the sun can be dangerous. If you want to maintain a sun-kissed look during the dog days of summer, unDONE Salon offers a naturally formulated spray tan formula that fortifies your skin’s natural defenses with fast drying, quick absorbing results.

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Healthy Summer Hair

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Healthy Summer Hair

Sun, salt, and chlorine are the essential elements of summer fun that can wreak havoc on your hair. With proper precautions, however, your hair can stay perfectly moisturized and protected all summer long. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with the following list of hair care tips for maintaining healthy summer hair.

Add Color Preserving Treatments to Your Haircolor Service
The harsh, summer elements can cause your haircolor to fade faster than normal. At your next visit to unDONE, make sure to request a color preserving treatment to extend the life of your haircolor. Our Boise hair salon stylists can also recommend products like Gem Lites & Viral Colorwash that you can use at home to help protect and maintain your haircolor.

Use Products with UV Protection
When out and about in the summer sun, you know it’s important to protect your skin with sunscreen. But what about your hair? What many people don’t realize is that the sun can damage your hair just as much as it can your skin. Sun damage can cause extreme color and texture changes, not to mention split ends and uncontrollable frizz. The best way to avoid this and protect your hair is to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist about what UV protection products they would recommend you use.

Wear Hair in Simple Braids & Gentle Up-Dos
Summer hairstyles call for simple braids and gentle up-dos. Not only will these styles save you time but they will protect your hair from excessive sweat (that contains natural amounts of ammonia and salt that dry out your hair) and unwanted UV damage. The best part? Don’t worry about your style being perfect, especially if you’re pool side. The laid back nature of these summer hairstyles (even messy) embrace the natural elements of summer and look fabulous!

Rinse Your Hair With Fresh Water Before You Jump In The Pool
Before a swim, drench your hair with fresh water. The reason? Your hair acts like a sponge by absorbing the liquids it comes in contact with. When you soak your hair in clean water before jumping in the pool, your hair will absorb less chlorine, resulting in less damage to the shaft.

Use A Deep Conditioning Treatment
To help hydrate your hair and keep it healthy and shiny this summer, use a deep conditioning treatment. While you can purchase a hot oil or deep conditioning treatment at the grocery store, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE recommend making an appointment for a deep conditioning treatment. Not only will a professional deep conditioning treatment help with dryness, it will also help with annoying summer frizz and knots.

Wear a Hat
Wearing a hat when you’re out and about in the summer sun should become a routine task. Not only will it help prevent your haircolor from fading but it will decrease your exposure to UV damage and the chances of your scalp getting burned. As an added bonus, wearing a hat will help shield your face from those harmful UV rays that cause skin damage!

Make an Appointment at unDONE
Battling the negative effects summer can have on your hair can be tough. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE are here to help! Not only can we recommend products and treatments based on your hair type, we can also suggest hairstyles that would be easier for you to manage during the summer.

If you have any questions, feel free to come by the unDONE salon or contact us at (208) 287-2010 to schedule a consultation.

unDONE Salon Summer Body Waxing Tips

unDONE Salon Summer Body Waxing Tips

Believe it or not, it’s just a matter of days before you’ll be relaxing poolside in that new bikini you’ve been waiting all season to wear. The question is, are you ready? At unDONE Salon, we understand that summer means tons of unwanted shaving in order to show off smooth, warm weather skin. That’s why it’s important to get your summer waxing game into full swing! However, if you’re new to the whole body waxing scene, we’ve got a few tips to help you get ready.

First things first…

If you want smooth skin that lasts for weeks without shaving, it’s time to put down the razor. Whether it’s your upper lip, legs or underarms, you’ll no longer be requiring its services. In fact, shaving only complicates the body waxing process. In order for a body waxing treatment to be effective, hair must be at least a quarter of an inch long. You also won’t want to shave in between body waxing appointments either. Shaving makes unwanted hair much courser, making it more difficult to remove by waxing. It also makes the hair more likely to break off, which can lead to painful, ingrown hairs. So before you do anything else, get rid of the razor!

Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate…

Second, it’s important to exfoliate the areas of your skin you want waxed before your appointment. In fact, it’s a good idea to make it a normal ritual by exfoliating your skin a few times per week. Exfoliating your skin will remove any dead, surface skin cells that prevent the wax from gripping unwanted hair. Continued exfoliation will also reduce your chances of developing ingrown hairs in between your body waxing appointments.

Schedule routine appointments

Finally, it’s important to schedule routine body waxing appointments to ensure soft, smooth skin all summer long. For those who wax regularly, you can expect to book your appointments approximately 6 weeks apart. If you’re just starting out, you’ll probably need to schedule appointments every 3-4 weeks. The reason being is that over time, you’ll be able to stretch out the time it takes for your hair to regrow because regular body waxing causes it to grow back more slowly. The best part? Each time you wax, the hair grows back finer, making it easier and less painful to remove.

Lasting Results

A Boise spray tan will last between 7 – 10 days, depending on how well you care for it. After the tan is airbrushed, it’s important not to swim or shower for at least 8 hours.

Fantasy Haircolor by Heather Braswell

Fantasy Haircolor At unDONE Salon

Bright, vibrant, fantasy haircolors are all the rage and are in very high demand these days. Thanks to social media channels like Instagram and Pinterest, creative colors like blue, pink, purple, cotton candy, mint green, orange, etc., are being showcased using opal, oil slick, peek-a-boo, mermaid, rainbow, sunset, dip dye, and pastel hair coloring techniques. From soccer moms to CEO’s, the trend is not only growing but becoming increasingly “normal” as people from all different backgrounds choose to express their creative side using fun, vivacious haircolors.

Throughout history, wild haircolors have been used as a way for people to express themselves. With a dynamic rise in popularity, fantasy haircolors have also created a rise in acceptance. During the 1970’s, the punk movement helped separate people from mainstream society with fluorescent hair trends. Following that time during the 1980’s and 90’s, it wasn’t uncommon to see famous celebrities expressing themselves through different haircolor trends while influencing people to stand out from what was considered the “norm”.

Now, in 2017 men and women of all ages are loving the uniqueness of brightly colored hair. Pink and blue are no longer considered punk or any other status quo. In fact, at unDONE Salon, we see more and more clients of every age craving some adventure with their hair.

While not all employers find certain colors appropriate for a work setting, we’ve found ways to customize an exclusive color placement just for you. Why not have the best of both worlds? Our Boise hair salon stylists are trained in color placement and application so we can create a peek-a-boo look that’s only visible when you want it to be.

At unDONE Salon, we can provide you with the creative, and beautiful haircolor you’ve always dreamed about. Not only are our Boise hair salon stylists trained in the very latest haircolor techniques but can recommend the shampoo and hair products to ensure the longevity of your color. Whether you’re looking for vivid haircolor, fantasy haircolor, highlights, ombre, sombre, balayage, flamboyage, or something drastically new, our staff has got you covered! Call us at (208) 287-2010 or book your appointment online!

Boise Hair Salon Tips for People With Long Faces

Boise Hair Salon Tips for People With Long Faces

Change is good. But when it comes to getting a new hairstyle there are some important things to consider: hair type, facial features and most importantly, the shape of your face. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to finish off our face shape series this month by putting together a list of hairstyle tips for people with long faces.

Characteristics of a Long Shaped Face

Long face shapes are typically characterized by slim, elongated features with high foreheads and narrow jawlines.

  • Defined Cheekbones
  • High Forehead
  • Narrow, Smooth Jawline

When it comes to hairstyles for long face shapes, the aim of the game is to balance things out by making your face look rounder and more oval in shape. The last you want is something super harsh that accents the length of your face.

Bangs

Rounded or blunt bangs can really help to break up the length of your face. If you decide to go with the second option, the fullness and shine of blunt bangs can provide you with a much-appreciated youthful look. Long side bangs on the other hand, also help to balance the length of your face by partially covering your forehead.

Waves or Curls

More often than not, straight hair makes a face look longer. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE suggest women with longer faces add some waves or curls to their hair to create the illusion of width. If you have naturally curly hair, don’t ruin those gorgeous curls by straightening them out. Instead, try adding some layers to create additional texture.

Pixie Cuts

Pixie cuts are probably one of the best hairstyles for people with long faces because they help cut the length of the face, instantly making it appear shorter than it actually is. However, you don’t want to add any additional height to your forehead. Short pixies or pixies with spiky hair will only make your face look longer. Instead, longer, flatter pixies that sweep down in front of the ears are a perfect option.

Chin-Length Bobs

A bob that ends slightly below your chin is perfect for long-shaped faces as it creates the illusion of width. And, of course, you can give your hairstyle any effect you want with the perfect haircolor. From too casual to totally messy, a bob is an excellent way to style your hair!

*Tip: Don’t forget to add a few face-framing layers as they will help soften the look and boost the illusion of a shorter face.

Shoulder-Length Hairstyles

Perhaps the oldest trick in the book for those with longer faces is a shoulder-length hairstyle. In fact, it’s incredibly flattering. The trick to framing longer faces, however, is never to drag them down vertically. The goal rather is to give you a wider dimension by decreasing its length. For those with wavy or curly hair, a good hairstyle length is just below the shoulders. For those with straight, fine hair, keeping it above the shoulders is probably your best bet.

Boise Hair Salon Tips for Square Faced Hairstyles

Boise Hair Salon Tips for Square Faced Hairstyles

For those blessed with a square face, consider yourself lucky. A square face is a very common shape, especially among those of some big name celebrities. Unlike people with oval faces, however, you can’t get away with any hairstyle you want to try. But keep in mind there are plenty of sexy styles out there to compliment your square faced features. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have put together a list of tips for square faced hairstyles.

Characteristics of a Square Face

The characteristics of a square face include a squared jawline with the forehead, cheekbones, and jawline approximately the same width. People with a square face tend to hide their pronounced jawline with long, soft layered hairstyles that add an instant disguise. Waves and curls, on the other hand, are also known to soften your facial features while adding a touch of femininity to your style.

Whether you opt for a long or short hairstyle, it’s important to remember not to go too short or too long. In fact, the perfect hairstyle for a square face should measure just a few inches above or below the chin line.

Short Hairstyles Recommendations

At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend short or medium hairstyles with curls or waves for people with square faces. Wispy layers also work to soften your features while making your face appear longer. To pull off this look, think about adding some short layers that will add volume and height. Off center parts (either straight or diagonal) will also add a flattering twist to your hairstyle.

Bobs, on the other hand, are a little bit riskier. To pull off this particular hairstyle, we recommend a tapered bob with side swept fringes.

*If your hair is straight and mid-length, you may want to try using some rollers or a curling iron to add some gentle waves to your hair. Curls and waves work to soften your angular features instantly.

Long Hairstyles for Square Faces

Long hairstyles should be generally avoided by those with square face shapes as they will only accentuate your jawline. However, if you love long hair, try adding layers around your face to help soften the harsh angles of your jaw, nose and cheeks. Long layers that begin at the jaw and continue downwards will help to accentuate your best features. To top off this look, side swept fringes with look fabulous on you!

*For those that have long hair, it’s also important to avoid center parts, straight fringes, and a poker straight look. Instead, complement your best features by adding a side part and soft feminine waves.  

Square Faced Styles to Avoid

There are a few rules our Boise hair salon stylists have when it comes to what hairstyles look best on square shaped faces by taking into account the following:

  • Long straight styles will accentuate a square jaw line and should be avoided
  • Straight, full fringes or center parts will do nothing for your face shape.
  • Straight bobs or cuts ending at the jaw line should also be avoided.

Instead it’s important to keep your locks fuller with waves and added layers for extra body. Side swept fringe also works to detract attention from your angular features making them look more feminine. Bobs on the other hand should always be choppy and layered!

Other Factors to Consider

Taking into account the shape of your face is important when it comes to choosing the perfect hairstyle. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the above guidelines are just that – general guidelines – and that the shape of your face isn’t the only thing to take into consideration. Overall body, type, and length are just as important. If you are feeling stuck with the same old hairstyle, or you don’t think a new cut is working for you, it may be time to discuss some alternatives with your stylist.

At unDONE Salon we offer personalized consultations when it comes to choosing the best hairstyle for your face shape.
