Dear Beloved Guests,

A Letter from Sharri

As the fourth of July approaches us, being prepared for summer is a must. While our vacation plans, beach bodies and BBQ’s may take precedent at the moment, financial preparedness is inevitable. For years I have worked to deliver you and your family high-fashion style at a very reasonable price. I do everything I can to bring you great value and stretch your hard-earned dollars. Our customer service, highly educated staff, client reward programs and fun, upbeat environment makes Medusa the best salon in our area. In order to maintain this level of quality, my prices will be increasing slightly effective August 1, 2011. I value each one of you and I appreciate your support! I have personally trained and prepared a number of our stylists who are more than happy to accommodate you at your current price if the increase is out of reach. With Love, Sharri Hillman

Keeping your color Modern! Tips from our resident celebrity colorist. By: Chad Law Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge showing off her gorgeous hair color.

Every season women clip out pages from fashion magazines and update their clothes, shoes and make up while often overlooking their greatest accessory-- their hair color. ips for Most women don’t realize, like a perfect shade of lipstick, hair color can actually define a woman’s look. While seasons are the perfect opportunity to update, it is important to be ready on what is modern and will suit you best before sitting down in your colorist’s chair.

Remember: Start thinking of your hair color as an accessory and it will become your best accessory. Consider the maintenance: Do you change handbags everyday or every 6 months? While a more adventurous woman should be up for the challenge of a dramatic change, lower maintenance women should stick with a A favorite family more manageable change, like balayage (soft, sun kissed, hand or slogan canthe movement: make sure your paintedphrase highlights). Enhance color makes a statement. Just like your favorite black dress fits go here. your frame, your color should fit your haircut. In order to achieve movement in color, make sure your colorist works with multiple shades. Using multi-tone shades on the ends will enhance the reflection and mimic the movement of natural hair. Soften your face: There is nothing worse than pulling your hair back and seeing a dark shadow. Ask your colorist to use a lighter color around your face, or paint some lighter pieces to soften the appearance of color on your hairline. Highlight, don’t HighLINE: the days of seeing each individual line of lightness from your scalp are over. Tell your colorist to make your highlights more blended. The point of highlights is to enhance and brighten, you don’t want to see where they start and end. Using multiple shades in highlights is also a must to lower maintenance, increase shine, and increase the contrast of colors. Work with your stylist: make sure your stylist and colorist are on the same page so the two enhance each other. If they are the same person, make sure you consult about it all before you start the coloring process. Make it yours: anyone can be the same brown, or a flat blonde. Make sure you have something in your color that no one else has. It can be a flicker of red in the sunlight or some highlights around the face; customization is a must to staying modern. Remember: there is no point in spending the money on color, if you aren’t going to maintain it properly. Always use professional recommended products at home.
