Book Your Graduation Appointment at unDONE Salon!

It’s the moment you’ve been planning and working so hard for over the years — the day you graduate from high school. Now is the time to get ready to celebrate! To help you get ready for graduation, unDONE Salon is here to help. That’s why our Boise hair salon stylists, nail technicians, and skincare experts want to provide you with the following tips to help you stand out at graduation.

Find the Perfect Shoes

Graduation gowns aren’t always the most flattering thing to wear. But who cares! Wear that gown and cap proudly! However, if you want to spruce up your look & showcase your personality find the perfect shoes to compliment your ceremony garb. Whether you wear fun strappy heels or athletic shoes signed by all your friends, you can be sure this is a detail you don’t want to overlook.

Get the Perfect Hairstyle

Finding the perfect hairstyle to go with a graduation cap can be tricky. However, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have a few tips when it comes to picture-perfect hair. If you have long hair, don’t be afraid to wear it down. You can also add some flare with a new, custom hair color or fashion color trend. If your hair is short, don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through with a fresh trim or custom cut. Just make sure that the hairstyle you choose looks good with and without your cap. After all, it will be coming off and soaring through the sky after the ceremony!

Add a Pop of Color to Your Makeup

Now that you’ve picked out the perfect shoes and hairstyle, don’t forget your makeup! Bold lip colors will help you stand out and look great for photos. Additionally, you may want to consider a smokey eye or a pop of shimmer to highlight your eyes. Just make sure the colors you choose complement the colors of your gown. You also don’t want your eyeshadow or lipstick to match the color of your robe.

Pick the Perfect Outfit

Even though you’ll be wearing your cap and gown throughout the ceremony, there will be plenty of celebrations afterward. If you want to look your best through the night, take the time to pick out the perfect party outfit to reveal at just the right moment. Doing so will make heads turn while keeping you picture perfect to remember your big day.

Decorate Your Cap!

One of the biggest graduation trends over the years is to decorate your cap with messages or images that describe your high school experience. As long as it isn’t a rental, feel free to make a bold statement by showcasing your personality and having the last word!

The Ultimate Guide To Leaving Your Boise Hair Salon Happy

As Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE, we are extremely passionate about what we do. That’s why it’s very important to us to make sure our clients are always happy with the results of our work. Of course, when visiting unDONE, we always want to leave feeling like you’ve gotten your money’s worth with beautiful hair.

However, just like any other industry, we’ve learned that it’s impossible to please every single person who comes into our salon. If you’ve ever had a bad Boise hair salon experience, there can be several underlying reasons that may leave you unhappy with your service that doesn’t involve the technical skills of your stylist. That’s why we’d like to share some things from a stylists point of view that our clients can do to ensure they have a wonderful salon experience.

Do Your Research & Book A Consultation

It all starts before you ever step foot in our Boise hair salon. In fact, many of our clients find us on Instagram or Facebook. Here you can find some of our featured work and even pictures liked by your own friends. This allows our clients to gain a sense of trust and comfort with us before they ever walk into unDONE. By following our accounts, you can gather pictures of our stylists work before contacting us for a consultation appointment.

Once you book a consultation, we will then take into account your current hair and the desired results you would like to achieve. We will also go over your hair history, concerns, and what you’re hoping to achieve the day of your first visit. This consultation will allow us to schedule the appropriate time needed. There is nothing worse than having a new client schedule an appointment only to realize they need a major color correction or something that will take more time than an average client.

If you book a consultation, your Boise hair salon stylist can customize the length of your appointment based on your individual needs and ensure we both have enough time to achieve your hair goals.

Have Realistic Expectations

Having realistic expectations is extremely important when it comes to your hair. In fact, this is often the main reason clients leave a salon unhappy. Clients with dark hair, wanting to go lighter don’t always understand that the process often requires more than one visit. This can be due to a variety of reasons including the integrity of your hair, whether or not it’s possible, and if the color you want to achieve is obtainable.

During a consultation, we will also explain how long the process might take and hope you trust our professional recommendations. We never promise immediate results if we know it’s going to take some time to achieve. Keep in mind, we are professional Boise hair salon stylists, not magicians. That’s why it’s important to have realistic expectations, especially if you’ve been dying your own hair with box color for years.

This goes for blondes as well. Over the years, we’ve had several clients who want to go blonder and blonder with each and every visit until it’s just not healthy for their hair. While it comes down to personal preference, it’s important to listen to the advice of your Boise hair salon stylist if you want to maintain the integrity of your hair.

Not only is it important to be realistic, it’s also just as important to understand that not everyone’s hair is the same. While we can do our best to match a color in a picture, we can’t match it exactly if your hair’s type, texture, and style are different than the model or celebrity you love. That’s why you should do your research and try to find pictures of colors and cuts with people who that have similar features, skin tone, hair length, and density as your own. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that many of the pictures that you find online or in magazines have been filtered or photoshopped to make the models look perfect. Trust us on this one and always listen to the advice of your stylist about whether or not a style is achievable.

Relax And Let Us Do Our Job

Occasionally, we have clients who come into our Boise hair salon that just have a hard time relaxing or trusting our stylists with their hair. Rest assured that we understand trust issues, especially having fixed botched hair applications and listening to horror stories from our clients with other salons. However, if you’re overly cautious and nervous we hope you give us the benefit of the doubt in order to feel more comfortable. That’s why we post pictures of our work and make sure we see eye-to-eye with our clients about each and every service.

Keep in mind that we may not always feel comfortable explaining the technicalities of our work. That’s like asking a mechanic or an electrician for a complete, step-by-step process of their services. Not to mention being overly analytical during your service can throw us off, making us unable to perform our work to the best of our ability. Remember that every Boise hair salon stylist has different techniques they are good at. You also shouldn’t believe everything you read online and understand that no one has the exact same head of hair. Always trust your Boise hair salon stylist and allow them do their job. By doing so, you will boost their confidence and allow their creativity to flow! Some of our best work has been with clients who were open, trusting, and let us go to work.

Use The Products We Recommend

If your planning on investing the time and money into our services to obtain beautiful hair, you must invest in the quality, salon-grade products we recommend. As Boise hair salon stylists, we know what products will help keep your hair looking fabulous in-between appointments. Investing in high-quality products will also help you achieve better hair color results while keeping it healthy, shiny, and beautiful. It’s not our fault if your hair looks dry or feels damaged if you don’t use the products we recommend to fix it. If you want to feel 100% happy with your hair, you have to take care of it at home as well. We promise you will notice a difference when you switch from drugstore shampoo and conditioner to the salon products we offer!

In Summary…

At unDONE Salon, we love doing fun, creative things to our client’s hair! That’s why we want you to feel happy about your service each and every time you walk out of our salon with the guide we provided above. If you’re interested in trying out a new hairstyle or would like more information about the services we provide, contact us at (208) 287-2010 or schedule a consultation online. Our Boise hair salon stylists would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to helping you achieve the hair of your dreams!

Top 4 Reasons You Should Pre-Book An Appointment at unDONE Salon

Between work, family, and personal obligations, schedules can be tough. Even more, fitting everything in can sometimes seem impossible. What if we told you we could help take some of the load off your shoulders? This week’s blog is something that’s very near and dear to our hearts at unDONE Salon. Pre-booking your hair appointments! Although many of our clients do pre-book, some don’t because they don’t understand all the amazing benefits. That’s why we’d like to provide you with top 4 reasons you should pre-book from now on!

Your Time is Valuable

With so many things to do, pre-booking your hair appointment will cross one thing off your important list of things to do. When you book your next appointment before leaving our salon, you will get your choice of date and time. Not only will this help make scheduling easier for you but for your Boise hair salon stylist as well. When your stylist is present while you’re booking they can help dedicate the right amount of time depending on your personal cut, color, and style needs.

Busy Spring Season

Spring is often a busy season for many hairstylists because people are planning ahead for important events and holidays. From spring break vacations to Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Father’s Day, and the 4th of July, stylists try to make themselves as available as possible but it’s still hard. Plus, you’re going to want to look your best at all times. Since you’ve got so many things going on this spring, the last thing you want to be concerned about is maintaining your cut or hair color. That’s why it’s important to get on our books as soon as possible so your not dealing with faded color or grown out hair.

Maintain Your Style

Maintaining your style is super important. When you pre-book your Boise hair salon appointment, you’re allowing your stylist to schedule your appointment as they see fit. As stylists, we can determine how fast your hair is growing or when you’ll need a color touch up in order to predict when your next appointment should be. This will save both of us from a huge headache down the road. When you pre-book an appointment, neither of us has to worry about your hair getting too long, full, or rooty. It will also be easier for you to style and maintain between appointments.

Budget Accordingly

From fashion hair colors to Balayage to Ombre, maintaining your hair color can come at a cost. When you pre-book your appointment, you’ll provide yourself with plenty of time to budget and save for your next service. A $100 dollar hair service won’t seem so scary when you stretch it out over a period of 6 weeks. When you do the math it comes down to saving a little over $16 dollars a week. All you have to do is cut back on your morning coffee and your hair is all paid for!

unDONE Salon

If you’re not accustomed to pre-booking, unDONE Salon invites you to give it a try. If you would like to schedule your initial appointment, give us a call at (208) 287-2010 and be ahead of the game. You can even schedule an appointment date/time online by clicking here. Alternatively, the next time you visit us, ask your Boise hair salon stylist for advice on when to pre-book and experience all the benefits it offers. See you soon!

Boise hair salon, hair color, Boise hair salon stylists, Color Correction

Boise Hair Salon: What You Need To Know About Color Correction

Is your current hair color already out of style? Do you regret copying the hair color of your favorite celeb? Or did an experiment going from brunette to blonde fail miserably and now you have Oompa Loompa hair? It doesn’t matter if you dyed your hair at home or chose the highest priced hair salon in Boise, hair color results can sometimes take a weird detour and come out in any hue (except the one you anticipated).

If this has happened to you, don’t panic. unDONE Salon can provide you with a hair color correction treatment. Our dedicated team of Boise hair salon stylists have seen it all and can help you recover from any hair color disaster.

What is a Hair Color Correction Service?

Color correction is a term that gets thrown around a lot but is often misunderstood. To put it simply, a color correction is any situation where previously colored hair is being colored. It’s also important to understand that once hair is colored, the pigment stays within the hair strand until it either grows out or gets cut off. So yes, if you’ve ever changed hair colors, almost everyone (except those with virgin hair) have had some sort of color correction.

What Happens During a Color Correction Treatment?

Color correction is a process that usually involves several steps. It also requires you to be honest about your color history with your Boise hair salon stylist.

During a consultation, your stylist will make sure your hair is healthy and strong enough to withstand the color correction process. Over-processed hair can cause it to become weak and damaged which results in a loss of elasticity and porosity which causes color to fade faster than normal. We may also take a couple of test strands —  small amounts of hair that will be used to correctly formulate your hair color.

While color corrections can sometimes be done in one day, others require multiple hair color services over a period of time. To achieve your desired color there are a variety of factors your Boise hair salon stylist must consider. This includes your current color, desired color, your hair’s porosity and how much time was booked for the service —  which can sometimes take up a whole day. While you may not leave unDONE Salon with your desired hair color in one single sitting, it’s to prevent damage while giving your hair time to recover from the lightening process rather than trying to fit it all in one sitting.

  • When going from dark to light, your Boise hair salon stylist will use a lightener (a salon-grade form of bleach). This will de-color your hair before another color or toner is used to add color back into your hair.
  • When going from light to dark, hair must be filled with an in-between color before the desired hair color is achieved. This prevents your hair color from becoming muddy or green.

While the hair color correction process can seem overwhelming, the team at unDONE Salon can help you achieve amazing results anytime you need to fix or want to change your look. Our Boise hair salon stylists know the correct way to color your hair without damaging it in the process. No matter what shade or tint you want, we can customize a hair color just for you. We promise personalized results every time!

Preventing Hair Color Issues

It’s important to prevent hair color issues by making sure you are working with an experienced Boise hair salon stylist. Never be afraid to ask questions and be specific about the results you’re looking to achieve. If we think a color or technique is a bad idea, it’s probably best to listen to us. Hair can only take so much. That’s why you should always think carefully before going back and forth between light and dark hair colors.

At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists are highly skilled in the art of color and trained in all of the latest hair trends and techniques in the industry. From highlights and lowlights to full-color correction, we offer a variety of hair color services to create beautiful, vibrant color. We also only use the highest quality salon formulas to protect the health and integrity of your hair. Let us help you choose the perfect shade to enhance your features and compliment your style!

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Maintaining Fashion Hair Colors

Whether their bright and bold or soft and subtle, fashion haircolors are an awesome way to express yourself. However, they can also be high maintenance. The most obvious maintenance is the constant battle against fading. While it’s inevitable that you’ll have to visit your Boise hair salon stylist at unDONE for color touch-ups, there are steps you can take to prevent early fading while prolong your fashion haircolor in the process.

Keep Your Hair Healthy

First and foremost, you need to keep your hair healthy. Damaged hair simply won’t hold color the same way healthy hair will. While lightening your hair to achieve your fashion haircolor may seem counterintuitive, it’s important to consult with a professional. Keep in mind that if you have dark hair and want to go a particular shade of pink or blue, it’s going to take a lot of love and work to achieve which can result in damage if not properly lightened the right way. Your Boise hair salon stylist will work with you to limit the damage by recommending certain products and services to maintain healthy hair before and after your haircolor transformation.

Use Only High-Quality Haircolor

Not all haircolor products are created equal. While the images on a box of haircolor may look lovely and promise wonderful results, it’s not uncommon for your hair to come out all weird and splotchy. That’s because box haircolor cannot provide an even application that makes up a well-balanced look. At unDONE Salon, we only use high-quality, salon-grade haircolor products that won’t damage your hair or irritate your scalp. We also customize each service using up to 10 different colors to achieve the fashion haircolor you’re aiming for.

Avoid Hot Water & Styling Tools

Third, it’s important to wash less and to avoid hot water when shampooing your hair. Instead, always rinse with cold water after every wash. You’ll also want to cut down on your use of hot styling tools as heat opens up the hair’s cuticle, allowing pigments to fade. If you must, make sure to talk to your Boise hair salon stylist about what products they suggest to protect your haircolor. Also, when you do style your hair, make sure to use your tools on the lowest heat setting. While it may take longer to style your hair, the sacrifice is worth it when it comes to maintaining your fashion haircolor.

Use Only Salon-Grade Hair Care Products

Last but not least, always use, high-quality, salon-grade shampoo and conditioner. Hair care options you find at your local grocery store contain harsh sulfates, parabens, and alcohol that strip your haircolor while damaging it in the process. Talk with your Boise hair salon about the products they suggest based on your hair type and color. Also, keep in mind that fashion haircolors aren’t designed to last. That’s why you need to visit unDONE Salon to maintain the look you want.

unDONE Salon

At unDONE Salon, we love doing fun, creative things to our client’s hair! We just want you to understand the process and upkeep of maintaining the look you pay for. If you’re interested in trying out a new haircolor, contact us at (208) 287-2010 or schedule an appointment online. Our Boise hair salon stylists would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have and look forward to helping you achieve the fashion haircolor of your dreams!

Boise Hair Salon: What Causes Split Ends & Breakage

With summer now behind us, your hair may be feeling the dry and brittle effects due to leftover chlorine damage and sun exposure. While it’s not uncommon for us to provide you with seasonal tips for maintaining healthy hair, today unDONE Salon would like to cover some common reasons that cause unwanted breakage and how to prevent it.

Brushing

The #1 cause of breakage is due to the way you brush your hair. That’s why it’s important to be gentle when you style your mane. Don’t rip through it with a fine tooth comb. Instead start from the ends, moving upwards as your hair detangles.

Additionally, it’s just as important not to brush your hair when it’s soaking wet. If you’ve just stepped out of the shower, try towel drying your hair as much as possible before smoothing it out. A reconstructive spray or leave-in condition can also help detangle your hair while preventing unwanted breakage and split ends.

Ponytails

We know, we know… Ponytails are one of the easiest ways to manage your hair. While this basic hairstyle may seem like a simple solution, it’s also notorious for causing unwanted breakage. The reason? The constant tension caused by tight ponytails can result in scalp irritation and unwanted hair loss. Not to mention the damage that occurs when you remove the ponytail causing breakage in the process. If you can’t go without the ponytail, make sure to keep it loose and not to yank or pull when taking it out. In the end, you’ll be surprised at how this affects the integrity of your hair.

Headbands

Again, we know that pulling your hair back is a quick easy way to manage your tresses. However, if you’re constantly pushing your hair back using headbands you may be causing stress to your hairline. It’s important to keep in mind that the hair that frames your face is a lot more fragile than the length of it. As a result, it doesn’t take much to damage and break those hairs. If you must use a headband, make sure not to use it every day and to be as gentle as possible to ensure the health of your hair.

Styling Tools

Heat from a blow dryer or other styling tools can damage your hair and increase frizz and split ends. While styling your hair in its natural state isn’t always possible, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE recommend using styling tools on their lowest heat setting to prevent damage and unwanted breakage.

Damaging Products

Choosing the right shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair is important. Often times, people tend to choose the wrong products depending on their hair type. If you have dull, dry hair, use a product that specifically caters to strengthening and moisturizing your hair. Talk to your Boise hair salon stylist to see what products would work best for your hair type.

unDONE Salon

At unDONE Salon, we are here to help keep your hair strong, healthy and beautiful. Our Boise hair salon stylists are experienced and eager to work with you and help you avoid breakage while obtaining the cut or haircolor you want to achieve. Contact us at (208) 287-2010 or schedule an appointment online today!

Boise Hair Salon Tips: How Often Should You Color Your Hair?

It’s the time of year again. Fall is in the air and the colors of the leaves are changing. Perhaps this has got you thinking about trying a new creative haircolor or a lighter tone? Whatever the case may be, you may also be wondering how often it is to safely color your hair. The truth? There’s no set rules for haircolor. Instead, it comes down to a variety of factors you may want to consider before going in for your next makeover.

Hair Condition

First and foremost, how often you should color your hair depends on its health and condition. If your hair is in good shape it’s probably safe to say you can touch up your haircolor more often. If you’re thinking about a major change, on the other hand, you will definitely want to make sure it’s in its best possible condition.

While there’s no quick fix for damaged hair, there are a few steps you can take to help it regain its healthy luster.

  • Be Gentle – Avoid breakage when you brush or tie your hair.
  • Protect Your Hair From The Sun – Use an SPF conditioner and keep your hair under wraps when you’re out and about.
  • Trim Regularly – Drying, curling, and coloring can damage your hair. At unDONE Salon, we recommend getting your hair trimmed every 2-3 months to keep it healthy and free of split ends.
  • Wash Less & Condition More – Over washing can strip your hair of its natural oils decreasing its health and vitality. Conditioner, on the other hand, will help add a protective, moisturizing layer to help repair the cuticle.

Quality of Products

Another factor that can affect how often you should color your hair is the quality of products you use. This is one of the main reasons why you should never attempt to dye your hair on your own. At unDONE Salon, we only use haircolor products of the highest quality to cause the least amount of damage possible. DIY box hair color can leave you with hair that looks and feels like straw. Once your hair has been destroyed, it can take a long time, and a lot of money to repair it.

Home Hair Care

Invest in color preserving hair 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. That’s why 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.

unDONE Salon

As a rule of thumb, listen to your Boise hair salon stylist if you’re thinking about coloring your hair. They will provide you with recommendations based on your hair type, quality and how much it can handle. At unDONE Salon, 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, contact us at (208) 287-2010 today or schedule an appointment online!

Haircolor Techniques: Highlights & Lowlights

You’re probably familiar with the term highlights. If this is the case, you may be familiar with the term lowlights. However, unless you are a Boise hair salon professional, you may not know the real difference between the two or why you should pick one over the other.

Closely related, highlights and lowlights are very similar but not the same. Together, and done right, however, they can bring your haircolor to new heights. Alone, they can provide your hair with added volume and movement to your style. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to provide you with a little more information about these haircolor techniques and how they can maximize the overall beauty of your hair.

Highlights

Highlights and lowlights are used to treat specific areas of your hair, unlike all-over haircolor. To start, highlights are usually 1-2 shades lighter than your base haircolor. Used to compliment your color they don’t necessarily have to be blonde. In fact, some people with very dark hair may choose red, copper or ever blue highlights!

Depending on the look you’re aiming to achieve, thin highlights will look more natural while thicker highlights will stand out providing you with a more creative look. Another thing to consider is where your highlights are placed. Ideally, your Boise hair salon stylist will recommend placing them where the sunlight naturally hits your hair. This will not only make your haircolor look more natural but sparkle in the process.

Lowlights

As the less popular twin of highlights, lowlights blend into your hair adding a subtle change. However, they can be extremely useful when it comes to extending the life of your haircolor.

Lowlights are usually used to darkened particular strips of your hair by a couple of shades. This helps provide your hair with beautiful, subtle dimension. Coupled with highlights, lowlights can give you a more natural looking haircolor that will look better longer than a one or two haircolor style.

unDONE Salon

Whether used alone or together, both of these haircolor techniques can be used to help maximize your style. The outcome just depends on how talented your Boise hair salon stylist is. That’s why you should visit the talented team at unDONE Salon to get the best highlights and lowlights in the Treasure Valley. We’ll provide you with a bright, vibrant, multidimensional haircolor that looks amazing.
