Lift Your Spirits This Winter With A Boise Spray Tan!

Lift Your Spirits This Winter With A Boise Spray Tan!

Dreaming of summer? With winter in full swing, you’re probably noticing how pale your skin is each time you glance in the mirror. With less time spent outdoors, the less chance we have to soak up the sun that creates the “summer glow” we all strive for. But cold weather shouldn’t automatically mean pale skin. Spray tanning is the perfect option for those looking for a convenient way to tan even if it’s cold outside.

Not sure why you should tan during the winter? Check out the following reasons why winter is the perfect time for a subtle golden glow:

The Benefits of a Boise Spray Tan

Confidence & Personal Improvement

Just like maintaining a Boise manicure or pedicure, it’s always important to take the time to do something for yourself. Things, like buying a new outfit, or taking a relaxing bath are ways you can treat yourself while improving your overall happiness. Another way to improve your self-confidence during the winter is to provide your skin with a makeover with a Boise spray tan. The simple act of making yourself feel and look better will change your outlook and mood, especially if it’s freezing and miserable outside. Even if nobody notices your tan, you will feel confident each time you look in the mirror.

Impress Your Significant Other

The only other person who will most likely see your bikini body this winter will be your significant other. Valentine’s day would be the perfect opportunity to showcase a warm, bronze glow. It’s always nice to receive the compliments you crave while feeling confident in an intimate setting. A Boise spray tan can provide you with the summer skin you crave while making you look and feel beautiful.

Special Events

Another great reason to get a Boise spray tan this winter are the special events you plan on attending. Instead of having pale, dry skin, imagine showing up with a realistic, moisturized summer glow! Look and feel your best during the following celebrations:

  • Valentine’s Day
  • Spring Break Vacation
  • Work Events
  • Parties

Boost Your Self-Confidence!

Just because it’s cold outside and you may be covered up doesn’t mean a Boise spray tan won’t make your clothes and fashion choices look better. Give yourself a needed confidence boost during the depressing winter months! Whatever the reason or occasion a Boise spray tan is a good option for anyone wanting to look and feel their best. There is nothing like looking in the mirror and feeling beautiful with warm, bronzed skin.

Getting Results – Written by Kim Denton Owner/Salon Coach

Lately, the biggest question I get these days is how I got where I am in just the past year (dropping 55lbs and starting a new found career). Believe me, it wasn’t easy. On your way up there is always people who want to keep you down. What I do know is this – setting goals is key and keeping them is even more important. Your biggest accountability is to yourself! No one else can help change you or get you the results you want.

So let’s take a look at what results look like… Results are consequences. They are the effect or outcome of our actions. If you want to lose weight or get a job promotion, or even become a superstar, you have to visualize what you want and ask yourself how you are going to get there.

The very first thing to work on is changing our behavior. Behavior is either physical or mental. If you want to be at the top of an organization or want to lose weight like 75% of the population, you have to start behaving like the person you visualize. It is my personal belief that this is why people lose interest in their goals because changing your behavior is one of the hardest things to do.

So to change our behavior, we have to change our mindset. Mindset plays an interesting part in our behavior. How we think is usually how we behave. The best thing I ever did was take the Little Voice Mastery program by Blair Singer (coached by Jason Everett). This program inspired me so much that I became a business coach for LVM and utilize the concepts I’ve learned in my own salon. If you want to see gains you have to change your mindset (see my blog on success).

In order to reach your goals, it’s also just as important to change your attitude and leave the negative behind you. Yes; whoever or whatever, it’s time to say goodbye and stay on track. You will get some slack when you are on your way up, but you will also find people who cheer you on and/or get inspired by what you have done for yourself. I always tell my clients to make daily goals and a gratitude list in the morning while celebrating wins throughout the day. As you continue on your journey, your momentum will get stronger, and your fan club will get bigger in the process. Your energy and positive attitude will be contagious!

Now remember the negative part? The reason why it’s so important to put the negative behind you is because of your belief system. What you believe to be true will affect your attitude about yourself. If you believe that you will never reach your goals, or that it’s to hard, or it’s just not the right time, this belief system will kill your attitude faster than anything. Positive thinking all the way! Change that attitude to a 70 °,sunshiny day. No day is a bad day! At least that is what we say at unDONE Salon.

Last of all divide your self-concept into the following three categories:

  • Your Image – How do you see yourself everyday?
  • Your Ideals – Who do you inspire to be and look up to?
  • Self Esteem – How much do you love and like yourself?

In order to get the results that we truly want, it’s these three things that will affect how we feel, see and what we aspire to be. Remember, your results will never exceed your self-concept. Keep your eye on the ball, and keep believing in yourself!

Spring Cleaning: Caring for Your Hands & Nails

With the weather so warm, and summer just around the corner, most of us are busy with spring cleaning tasks. However, with all the yard work and pulling weeds, it’s important not to neglect your hands and nails in the process. Taking care of your hands and nails isn’t just limited to wearing gloves. Below are some things to look out for when it comes to maintaining the health and beauty of your hands:

Water
Whether you’re doing the dishes or working in the garden, submerging your nails in water for long periods of time can be very damaging. Water can not only dry out your hands, it can weaken your nails causing them to split, peel, or break easily. Try limiting water exposure, and make sure to wear gloves when possible. Also, a clear top coat can help make bare nails a little more water resistant.

Chemicals
There are a variety of everyday products we use that contain chemicals that can damage your skin and nails.

  • Hand Soap
  • Nail Polish Removers
  • Dish & Laundry Detergent
  • Bleach
  • Kitchen & Bathroom Solvents

Using products without wearing gloves exposes your hands and nails to heavy-duty chemicals that can dry, damage and strip them. Bleach is especially damaging.

Weather
During the summer, we tend to drink more water due to hotter temperatures. Don’t forget that your hands and nails are thirsty too! Make sure to invest in a quality moisturizer and use it often.  Also, Vitamin E is ideal to rub on your nails and cuticles when they are especially dry and in need of a little extra TLC.

Boise Nail Salon Tips For Maintaining Healthy Hands & Nails This Summer
While wearing gloves is important there are a few other things you can do to maintain the health and beauty of your hands and nails this summer.

  • Trim, don’t cut hangnails.
  • Limit use of hand sanitizers.
  • Use moisturizing hand soaps.
  • Massage nails and cuticles with Vitamin E or a cuticle oil.
  • Push back cuticles, rather than cutting them.
  • Exfoliate your hands and nails before moisturizing.
  • Avoid heavily scented hand creams that can further dry out your nails.
  • Limit your use of polish removers, especially those that contain acetone.
  • Wear cotton gloves at night while sleeping (after putting on hand cream).
  • Slather on a high quality hand cream everyday and at night before bed.

How Undone Salon Can Help Your Hands & Nails Look Their Best this Summer
At Undone, we are a Boise nail salon that offers Boise manicures & Boise pedicures to exfoliate, moisturize, and condition your hands, and nails to keep them healthy and looking their best. We also offer cuticle and paraffin hand treatments as a fabulous way to treat & moisturize your hands and nails.

Despite applying all of the above mentioned tips, you may find yourself with a split, cracked or torn nail. If that happens, come in to see us for a needed repair. Remember, healthy hands & nails can make a huge difference in the beauty of your Boise manicure, so visit us often, and especially during the spring and summer!

Spring into Summer Early with a Body Waxing Treatment!

Whether it’s your first time or you have been waxing all your life, summer is just around the corner, and now is the time to consider what hair removal option might work best for you. At Undone Salon, we offer body waxing services to help keep your skin soft and smooth for the hot weather ahead. To prepare for the upcoming season, our licensed professionals want to provide you a list of body waxing benefits, as well as some before and after tips when it comes to your next body grooming appointment:

The Benefits of Body Waxing

  • Body waxing last longer when compared to shaving because it removes hair by the roots.
  • Body waxing often causes hair to grow finer and slower producing longer, smoother results.
  • No stubble! No more rough, abrasive skin in between shaving…
  • Body waxing is not only fast but a convenient way to remove hair for longer results.
  • Less irritating to skin when compared to shaving that often leaves behind nicks and cuts caused by a razor.

Before and After Body Waxing Tips

  • Its very important to exfoliate up to two days before body waxing to help remove dead skin cells.
  • Moisturize daily to help your skin stay soft in between body waxing treatments.
  • Avoid using topical alcohol before a body waxing appointment because it tighten pores.
  • Protect your skin from sun damage by using a proper SPF sunscreen. It is also especially important to avoid excessive sun exposure in order to avoid redness during the first 24 hours after a body waxing treatment.

Ready to get your summer started? Call us at (208) 996-8668 to schedule an appointment. Our licensed professionals will help you get the soft, smooth skin that you want for the warm weather days ahead. In addition, once you’re feeling beach body ready, why not compliment your body waxing treatment with a Boise spray tan? A little extra color is always nice no matter the season and will help to boost your overall confidence!

Improve Skin Texture & Fine Lines With Micro-Needling at Undone Salon!

Over time, increased exposure to the sun, the environment and the aging process can damage our skin. This damage then shows itself in the form of fine lines, sun spots, wrinkles or discoloration. While there is a whole host of things to help correct, minimize or erase these issues, imagine improving the look and feel of your skin, simply by using your own natural healing abilities!

The process of micro-needling is a non-invasive, Boise hair salon treatment that helps to erase scars and smooth wrinkles with a device that gently rolls across the face, pricking your skin with tiny needles. Your skin reacts immediately by producing more collagen, helping to diminish scars and wrinkles while improving the overall look of your skin! This popular Boise hair salon treatment can be used on any skin type, and is a brief procedure with minimal recovery time.

What conditions can be treated or improved with Micro-Needling?

  • Stretch marks
  • Loose, lax skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin texture and pore size
  • Mild to moderate acne scarring (new or old scars)

Who can use it?

A micro-needling, Boise hair salon treatment is suitable for all skin types. It can be used by men or women and is used to improve signs of aging due to excessive sun exposure, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, pigmentation, blackheads, wrinkles, and loose body skin.

Is it Painful?

Prior to your Boise hair salon, micro-needling treatment, numbing cream can be applied to help minimize any discomfort you may feel during the procedure. Some people will experience redness and mild swelling that’s similar to a sunburn for 24-48 hours after the treatment with minimal pin-point bleeding or bruising. However, within a week or two, you will begin to notice that your skin is smoother and more radiant! Keep in mind that for full effects you will have to wait an additional, couple of months.

What are the Results?

  • A reduction in pore size
  • Stimulated tissue regeneration.
  • Improved appearance of stretch marks.
  • Improved skin texture with a reduction in fine lines & wrinkles.
  • Disfiguring scars (especially acne scars) will be improved as new collagen fibers elevate the depressed scar tissue with the periphery skin.

Get healthier, fresher skin with a Boise hair salon, micro-needling treatment! For more information or to schedule a micro-needling appointment, contact Undone Salon today. Micro-needling is the perfect complement to our variety of skincare treatments, and we are excited to offer it to you!

Boise Nail Salon Tips for Winterizing Your Hands & Nails

Just as our hair, and skin suffers during the dry winter months, our hands and nails suffer too. Nails thrive on humidity. Unfortunately however, Idaho maintains a cold, dry climate during the winter, and by spending time indoors with the furnace on, your nails can become dehydrated and brittle. Keep in mind that unless you wear gloves 24/7, your hands get almost as much air exposure as your face! But, just as the seasons change, so should your hand and nail care routine. Below are some cold weather, Boise nail salon tips to help rescue your hands from the effects of winter:

Boise Nail Salon Tips For Maintaining Healthy Hands & Nails This Winter

While you’ll certainly want to slip on a cozy pair of gloves or mittens when you spend time outdoors this winter, there are a few other things you can do to maintain the health & beauty of your hands and nails. These Boise nail salon tips are beneficial during any season but especially vital during the winter.

  • Trim, don’t cut hangnails.
  • Avoid hot showers or baths.
  • Limit use of hand sanitizers.
  • Use moisturizing hand soaps.
  • Keep nails shorter in wintertime.
  • Massage nails and cuticles with a cuticle oil.
  • Push back cuticles, rather than cutting them.
  • Exfoliate your hands and nails before moisturizing.
  • Wear rubber gloves when doing dishes or cleaning.
  • Avoid heavily scented hand creams that can further dry out your nails.
  • Limit your use of polish removers, especially those that contain acetone.
  • Wear cotton gloves at night while sleeping (after putting on hand cream).
  • Slather on a high quality hand cream everyday and at night before bed.

Why it’s Important to Pre-Book Your Holiday Boise Hair Salon Appointment!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! And as we all know, the days ahead will be booked with holiday parties and celebrations. However, it’s important to keep in mind that it’s your Boise hair salon’s busiest season as well since women and men from all over the Treasure Valley will be booking appointments for their next holiday haircolor, cut, or style.

Below are some helpful Boise hair salon tips for taking the stress out of your next holiday hair appointment:

1. Book Your Boise Hair Salon Appointment NOW

If you’ve marked the date of your next holiday party on the calendar, make sure to call your Boise hair salon stylist to reserve your hair appointments now. Don’t wait until the week of your next major event only to find out it may be next to impossible to squeeze you in.

2. Book Your Appointment For The Exact Boise Hair Salon Service You Want

The holiday season one of Undone’s busiest seasons. Be considerate. Don’t walk into your Boise hair salon requesting services you didn’t book for in advance. Make sure to have any chemical processes (haircolor, perms, etc.) done before your special occasion appointment to help avoid rushing your Boise hair salon stylist to complete the service you need done so you can get to your party on time. Keep in mind that many Boise hair salon stylists also have plans & family commitments of their own, so make sure to discuss any needed chemical processes with your stylist in advance.

3. Bring Pictures

Be prepared. If you have an idea of what you want your hair to look like, show a picture of it to your Boise hair salon stylist. Doing so will help you and your stylist achieve the special look you want. If the look requires hair extensions, make sure call ahead of time and ask their opinion on what length, style and texture would work best for you.

While the holiday season can be one of the busiest times of year, a little proper planning and a few simple steps can ensure you get to look and feel your absolute best before your next major event. The key here though is to PLAN. Now is the time to get your calendar out and start booking your holiday Boise hair salon appointments so you have one less thing to stress about!

Keeping Up on Your Boise Pedicure During the Winter Months Ahead

With fall in full swing & winter fast approaching we all know that boot season is well on its way to the Treasure Valley. When it’s cold outside it’s very common for us to keep our feet safely hidden & warm, so it’s only natural that a Boise pedicure at unDONE Salon will become less of a priority. However, it’s important to remember what a difference groomed feet can make to your overall happiness.

On that note, your Boise hair salon wants to provide you a few good reasons to keep up with your Boise pedicure during non-sandal season:

A Boise pedicure will help make your life easier in the long run.

It’s no secret that we all delight seeing that pile of grated skin pile up during a Boise pedicure, however, it’s a LOT more effective to simply use a foot file or pumice stone for approximately one minute each day in the shower.

No cringing every time you pull on tights or slip between the sheets

We all know the feeling of dry skin patches on our feet catching on the soft fabric of some of our favorite things. Like nails on a chalkboard, this unsettling sensation can easily be cured with a Boise pedicure.

Self confidence baby!

A Boise pedicure will help you feel like a super-pulled-together girl during your next yoga or other barefoot workout session (even if you still struggle throughout the actual workout)!

You can go cozily barefoot inside your Uggs

Don’t be caught off guard when you enter a house where you are expected to remove your comfy shoes. A Boise pedicure will help eliminate the satisfaction of others judging your heavily chipped black toenail polish!

It’s just plain sexy.

Think about it. Look at the models feet above & face the fact that during the winter you’re about to let your feet become hideous. If you don’t want to invest in a Boise pedicure, you might as well stock up on some granny panties too…

Bonus reason:

As your Boise nail salon, unDONE is a great place to escape and relax when the weather is cold and crappy outside. Not only can you get a Boise manicure & pedicure but a Boise spray tan as well!

DONE Boise Hair Salon & BarkAID founder Patrick Lomantini raised $1005 to support BarkAid for saving homeless animals!

On Sept 17th, 2015 the Boise hair salon stylists at unDone partnered with Patrick Lomantini, founder of BarkAID for $20 haircuts to help raise a total of $1005 for Fuzzy Pawz Rescue – a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charitable organization dedicated to finding loving families for homeless dogs and cats in Idaho and Utah.

Below is a brief transcript of the unDONE’s interview with Patrick Lomantini, Boise hair salon stylist Brittney Tetro and the director of Fuzzy Paws, Amy:

Patrick: My name is Patrick Lomantini and we’re in Boise Idaho and I’m at this amazing salon called unDONE Salon and I’m with the amazing Brittney and if it wasn’t for her none of this would have happened, and I’m also with Amy from Fuzzy Paws rescue – the ones who benefited today and I just wanted to take a second to say we had an amazing day in Boise.

This is our 4th national tour and it’s our first time here and we had a great day and did 40 haircuts and raised a lot of money for what they do and we really appreciate what they do for the community here. And I also want to take a second here and say hi to Brittany and ask her how she felt about having this at her Boise hair salon.

Brittney: I couldn’t have been happier with the turnout. It was very good and I can’t wait to do it again next year!

Patrick: Let me tell you something about Brittany. She was fantastic. She kept the flow going and we had a lot of people here and she also took the day off and I was able to use her station and not only was it a selfless act on her but it was fantastic how professional she was and she helped me pick up the slack when I fell behind. So I can’t thank you enough. It was fantastic.

And Amy, how do you feel about the event?

Amy: It was awesome and we had a great time and we can’t thank the ladies at unDONE enough for stepping up when we got a little behind and we’d like to thank you (Patrick) for all your hard work and we can’t wait to do it again next year!

Patrick: Yeah, we had a great day and we just want to tell everybody that Boise, Idaho has it going together & has it going on!

In total, BarkAID has risen over $300,000 in its short existence with Patrick Lomantini and his teams around the United States having performed over 6,000 haircuts. At this time, unDONE couldn’t be prouder to have participated in helping such a good cause and from all of our Boise hair salon stylists we would like to thank the Treasure Valley community for coming out, and supporting this wonderful fundraiser. We look forward to doing it again next year!
