Boise Hair Salon Tips: 5 Reasons You Need a Haircut

Boise Hair Salon Tips: 5 Reasons You Need a Haircut

No matter how much conditioner you use, your hair looks fried and tangled. The messy braid you use to pull it together has also become a part of your everyday uniform. And no matter what, it seems to take FOREVER to style your locks. When your daily hair routine has come to the point where it’s no longer easy to maintain, it’s probably time for a trim.

While it may be hard to determine whether or not you need a haircut, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have got you covered. Below are 5 reasons why you should book your next haircut appointment today.  

YOU’VE GOT SPLIT ENDS

There comes a time when your dry ends refuse to soak up the best conditioner or serum. Dry split ends are usually a good sign you should have scheduled an appointment with your Boise hair salon stylist yesterday.

YOU CAN’T REMEMBER YOUR LAST HAIRCUT

We get it. Life keeps us busy. However, it’s important to maintain healthy hair by getting a trim every 5-7 weeks. Waiting any longer can result in unwanted split ends which makes it harder for your hair to grow since its constantly breaking from the bottom up.

YOU NEED A NEW LOOK

Sometimes a new look is just what you need for a self-confidence pick-me-up. Your hair says a lot about you and if you don’t like how you look, you probably don’t feel very good either. At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists offer a variety of services to help not only refresh your style but express your individuality.

YOUR HAIR TANGLES

Unwanted split ends can cause tangles and knots. More often than not, your best defense is a pair scissors. At unDONE Salon, we understand how hard it can be to tame a frizzy mane. We can provide you with a professional fix to help you achieve smooth, hassle free results.

YOU HAVE MORE BAD HAIR DAYS THAN GOOD

Can you remember the last time you woke up feeling good about your hair? If not, it’s probably time for a trim. Styling your hair should be easy. Instead of fighting it every day to look decent, unDONE Salon is probably worth a visit.

BOOK YOUR BOISE HAIR SALON VISIT

Do any of the signs listed above sound familiar? At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists can provide you with a trim or cut to help you transform your image while maintaining a sharp and sophisticated look. We promise to provide you with a professional haircut that’s easy to maintain, leaving you with healthier more beautiful hair in the process.

6 Things Your Boise Hair Salon Stylist Wants You To Know

6 Things Your Boise Hair Salon Stylist Wants You To Know

At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists are known for their ability to transform hair into dream colors and cuts. However, it’s important to understand there are plenty of things they wish you knew about achieving the look you’re aiming for. That’s why we’ve put together a list of things your Boise hair salon stylist wants you to know before coming into your next appointment.

Instagram Photos Are Half Fantasy

Instagram is like a romance novel for hair: completely glamorous but not real life. In most cases, everything from the angle to the filter is perfected through Photoshop and staging. While it’s ok to surf for ideas online, it’s important to understand that it probably won’t look the same as it does on Instagram. Stay inspired but be realistic about the outcome.

Creative Colors Take Time & Maintenance

Blue or pink hair may seem like fun, funky hair colors but it’s important to understand that they involve much more than a bottle of DIY hair dye. In fact, these creative colors often take a lot of time, work and skill to achieve. Consequently, they can also be expensive to maintain since they require routine Boise hair salon visits for professional touch-ups to keep your color vibrant.

Corrective Color Also Takes Time

We’ve all been there. At one time or another, we thought we could skip the Boise hair salon with DIY hair dye. However, 99% of the time, we end up with a case of badly dyed hair that requires a professional rescue. That’s why it’s important to contact your Boise hair salon stylist and tell them exactly what happened. Keep in mind, however, corrective color is a process. While some color corrections can be done in a few hours, others need multiple treatments over a period of time.

Home Hair Care Is Important

If you’re not protecting and maintaining your hair at home, you’re making life harder and more expensive than it should be. At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists can provide you with a variety of hair care tips and products based specifically on your individual hair needs.

Going From Dark to Blonde Takes A Lot Of Work

If you have dark hair and want to lighten your hair to a particular shade of blonde, silver or pastel, it’s important to understand it’s going to take a lot of love and work to achieve. This is especially true if you’ve ever dyed your hair, even if it was years ago. Unless you have virgin hair, there are layers of color that will need to come out. This can require several treatments in order to prevent unwanted damage that can result from bleaching. So be patient. Going from dark to blonde is a process.

Get A Hair Consultation

At unDONE Salon, we offer personalized consultations. A consultation will allow our Boise hair salon stylists to discuss expectations, establish the length of time needed for the service, and to gather some history about your hair that will affect the outcome of your desired style. A consultation will also provide you with the opportunity to discuss the cost of your desired service since there are many different styles we can help you achieve while understanding your wants and needs.

Men’s Hair: Are You Married To Your Hairstyle?

Men’s Hair: Are You Married To Your Hairstyle?

Calling all guys! When was the last time you changed your hairstyle? Seriously… If you’re still sporting the same look you had in high school or college, it’s probably time for a change. In fact, you could be married to your hairstyle without even knowing it.

Updating your hairstyle doesn’t mean you have to change your identity. Instead, it’s about staying current with the times. However, if you haven’t changed your men’s hairstyle in years, don’t feel bad. In fact, you’re probably not alone. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE Salon have put together the following reasons you should consider changing your hairstyle for an updated look.

Change Is Good

While you may be content with the same men’s hairstyle you’ve been rocking for the past 10 years, it’s important to roll with the times. What may have been popular back then probably isn’t so much now. In fact, think about how much you’ve changed. Over time, things have happened to you that can influence how your hairstyle looks. Sometimes we grow slimmer or even perhaps wider. Since we aren’t who we were yesterday, we certainly don’t want to remain the same, do we? Embrace a change. You’ll thank us later.

Boost Your Confidence

Life isn’t easy. We encounter consistent challenges, conflicts, and trials every day. While this is an essential part of life, it can also leave us feeling a little flat. A new men’s hairstyle can be an easy, simple and effective way to boost your self-confidence. Unless you book a classic crew cut but end up with a Jim Carrey inspired bowl cut, it’s almost impossible to walk out of a salon without a little spring in your step. Not only will your hair look fresher, you’ll also spend the next week or so graciously accepting compliments from family and friends. What’s not to love?

Transform Your Image

Another reason to change your men’s hairstyle is the desire to transform your image. As we get older, we tend to reinvent ourselves by changing jobs, switching careers, buying a new home or try new clothing styles. Changing your hairstyle is not different. As times change you may want to opt for something more sophisticated while other times you may want to boost your sense of freedom with a more creative look. Besides, who wants the same men’s hairstyle their entire life? As our style changes, so do our wants, needs, attitudes, and outlook on life.

Age Adjustment

Be honest. Who really wants to look their age? When we are young, we want to look older. When we are older, we want to look young. The good news here is that you can add or subtract years just by making adjustments to your men’s hairstyle. Even better? The changes don’t have to be huge to make an impact. All you need to do is visit unDONE Salon and tell your Boise hair salon stylist what you’re hoping to get from your look. They will be able to make a judgment based off of your facial features, coloring, and style to help you choose a new cut or haircolor that will achieve your goals.

unDONE Salon

In the end, it’s important to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist. Let them know you are thinking of a change and discuss your ideas and get their recommendations. Whether you want something short or long, we can provide you with a trim or cut to help you transform your image while maintaining a sharp and sophisticated look.

If you have any questions about any particular men’s hairstyle or want to schedule an appointment, contact us at (208) 287-2010 today.

 

Boost Your Self Confidence With Boise Eyelash Extensions

Boost Your Self Confidence With Boise Eyelash Extensions

Eyes play a very important role in how we are perceived by the world. As the saying goes, “eyes are the windows to the soul.” However, since our eyes are such powerful indicators of who we are, why wouldn’t we want to frame them in the most beautiful way possible?

That’s why unDONE Salon adores the idea of boosting your self-confidence with Boise eyelash extensions. Not only are they a long lasting solution compared to the everyday task of applying mascara, they require little to no maintenance from the moment you wake up. What else would we want to provide our clients?

If you’ve been thinking about getting Boise eyelash extensions but want more information, we’d like to provide you with the following list of things to know before your first eyelash appointment.  

Boise Eyelash Extensions.

What are the most common types of lash extensions?

When it comes to Boise eyelash extensions, there is a large variety of options to choose from. Sizes range from 6mm to 17mm in length with volume extensions ranging between 60 to 600 lashes per eye and various degrees of curl  Once selected, the eyelash extensions are applied one at a time using a specially formulated semi-permanent glue that will not irritate your eyes or natural lashes. However, since allergic reactions can happen (rarely), depending on your sensitivity, there are different types of glue that can be used to eliminate any problems or irritation.

How long does it take?

A full set of eyelash extensions can take approximately two hours and can be maintained year-round with touch-ups every 3 – 4 weeks. Also, it’s important to note that it’s a very relaxing and enjoyable process. You simply lie down and close your eyes while your Boise hair salon esthetician works on your lashes!

How long do you have to wait to swim or bathe?

It’s important to stay away from water for the first 12 – 24 hours after application or touch-ups. Water can weaken the adhesive before it has time to set, causing the eyelash extensions to fall out. It’s also important to avoid rubbing your eyes or pulling on your lashes with an eyelash curler.  However, once set, your eyelash extensions are waterproof which will allow you to shower, swim, exercise, etc.

Is it okay to also wear mascara?

Since extensions actually provide you with the illusion of wearing mascara, you don’t really need it. However, if you are planning on wearing mascara, it’s important not use an oil-based or waterproof formula since they can dissolve the bonding agent, and cause your extensions to fall out. Also, if you do use mascara, apply it only to the tips of the extensions with a very light hand in order to give your eyes the “pop” you’re looking for.

Will your natural lashes get harmed or damaged?

Eyelash extensions will not damage or ruin your natural lashes. However, it’s important to have them applied correctly by a Boise hair salon esthetician in order to guarantee the health and safety of your eyes and lashes. With proper application, eyelash extensions will look and feel completely natural.

unDONE Salon

At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon estheticians specialize in providing you with beautiful, healthier, long lasting eyelash extensions that feel fantastic. Not only can we customize your eyelash extensions based on your personal style in order to achieve your desired results but extend the amount of time they last through proper application. Whether you want natural looking or dramatic lashes, we can help you achieve the look you want!

Men’s Hair Ideas For A New Summer Style

Men’s Hair Ideas For A New Summer Style

Want a new look with a summer-friendly style? Due to the hot temperatures outside, many men opt for a relatively short, easy to maintain haircut to keep them cool. The good news, however, is that you’re not just limited to the classic buzz cut. At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair stylists have got you covered with the following ideas for the perfect summer cut.

Summer Men’s Haircuts

BRUSH CUT

As a high-style, low-maintenance option, the classic brush cut is the perfect option for men with straight hair and a slightly receding hairline. With the back and sides cut clipper short and slightly rounded, this simple look consists of a flat top that is blow-dried and styled.

CREW CUT

Another classic look is the ever versatile crew cut. While it’s important to have the right face and head shape (oval or round), the crew cut is easy to style and can help accentuate your best facial features. Keep in mind that there are many variations of the crew cut to choose from. Generally speaking, this timeless look consists of short, buzzed sides with a slightly longer top. Speak with your Boise hair salon stylist to see what variation would look best on you.

LAYERED UNDERCUT

For men who prefer more depth and fullness, a layered undercut can provide you with extra body without the added length. This men’s hairstyle consists of short, buzzed sides and back with a longer, layered top that gives your hair added texture and volume.

TOP KNOT UNDERCUT

If you’re in the process of growing out your hair or simply want to keep up with the current trends, a top knot undercut offers a rugged, edgy look. This men’s hairstyle consists of buzzed short sides and back with a long, grown out top. The top of the hair is then gathered and pulled back into a ponytail and styled into a bun.

POMPADOUR

As a classic, 1950’s sophisticated style, the pompadour is a stylish way to manage your longer locks. With buzzed sides and a long, slicked-back top, the pompadour is the ultimate Elvis Presley cut with a touch of modern sophistication. Keep in mind, however, you will need a strong-hold gel that will create the sleek, wet look you’re aiming for.

Undone Salon

If there’s one thing people notice about you, it’s your haircut. A good men’s haircut is the work of a talented Boise hair salon stylist that can offer you a summer style that will truly impress. Whether your hair is long or short, we can provide you with a trim or cut to keep you looking fresh and sophisticated all season long.

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. To book your next haircolor treatment, call us at (208) 287-2010 today or schedule an appointment online!

 

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.

Contact unDONE Salon
