Why Is Getting a Blowout Trending?

Why is getting a blow out trending?

Getting a blowout has been a rising trend for several years now. In some cities, salons do not offer haircuts, manicures or highlights; they are solely dedicated to blowouts. Why is getting a blowout trending right now? The answer is simple, it’s perfect for a special night out if you want to maintain a salon quality style for a few extra days over the weekend or just want to keeping your hair healthy and shiny.

Shampoo and Condition

Getting your hair shampooed and conditioned at the salon is more than pampering yourself; salon quality shampoo and conditioning includes high-quality products and a scalp massage that stimulates your hair follicles keep hair healthy and radiant.

Experiment with Your Style

There is always more than one way to style a haircut. A blowout lets you play around with several styles allowing you to go full with body or stay on the straight and narrow. The best part about a blowout is you can wash away any styling just in case you don’t like your experiment. Play around with your style and enjoy being fun and flirty.

Lasts More than One Day

Getting a blowout last longer than the walk to your car, the effects of the bounce and shine can last for several days. The day after your blowout, put a little bit of dry shampoo into your hair to freshen it up and keep the extra body and bounce going.

Getting a blowout is an affordable way to change up your style and keep your hair healthy. You don’t have to wait three to six months to have that salon perfect hair, all you need is a quick blowout every few weeks.

The average cost for a blowout at a blowout bar is upwards of $45. At Visions we offer blowouts for:

Long Hair Blowout: $32

Short to Medium Hair Blowout: $26

Blowout with an Updo is $50. (Perfect for Bridesmaids during the wedding season).

How to Prepare for and Maintain Your Sunless Tan

Prepare for and Maintain Your Sunless Tan

We are officially into the self-tanning season. I wanted to share a few tips on how to make your tan last and how to keep your skin healthy. Whether you use Fake Bake or if you use the spray tan at Visions Salon and Spa, these tips apply to both methods of tanning.

1.    Exfoliate

The night before you apply Fake Bake or spray tan at the salon, exfoliate your entire body. Exfoliating impurities and dead skin leave your skin clean and smooth. Not exfoliating can lead to an uneven and streaked tan.

I, personally use and recommend the BeautiControl exfoliating products.

2.    What to Avoid

Before tanning, do not apply any lotions or perfumes. If you have to use deodorant, use it sparingly! I also recommend leaving the yoga pants and jewelry at home. Wear loose clothing and no jewelry to avoid your new tan from smearing.

3.    Water

After applying Fake Bake or getting your spray tan, don’t shower, bathe or work out for 6 to 8 hours. Tanners take several hours to develop after you are finished with the application process and water can stop the development.

I know this difficult to do, but avoid swimming pools and any chemically treated water for 24-hours in order to prevent fading.

4.    Spot Removal

If you notice a streak or a spot that is too dark, use a clean sponge that is slightly rough. Soak the sponge in lemon juice to lightly rub the dark area. You should notice the area lighten up fairly quickly.

Now that you know how to prepare and maintain your tan, it’s time to schedule your appointment for a spray tan or stop by Visions and pick-up your Fake Bake kit.

Why You Need to Add Exfoliating to Your Beauty Routine

exfoliate visions salon and spa

As we age, the rate of our cell regeneration begins to slow down. Leading to old skin cells staying on the surface of your skin longer resulting in dull, rough and dry skin. Several of my clients at the salon ask me how they can restore their skin and bring back some of its natural shine. I like to recommend making exfoliating part of their skincare routine. Read More

How to Keep Your Hair Healthy

healthy hair visions salon and spa

Part of our morning routine consists of shampooing and conditioning our hair, followed by styling with hair product, drying our hair, and then we flat iron or curl it. Then we top it all off with a little more hair product to make sure our hard work stays in place. This daily routine has big impact on our hair and scalp health. If you notice that your hair and scalp has become oily, dry or brittle there are ways you can restore your hair to its natural healthy state. Read More

How to Achieve a Beautiful New Look with Hair Extensions

Visions Spa Hair Extensions

Years ago hair extensions were only attainable if you had a ton of money to spare. All we could do was sit back and admire celebrities on television and magazine covers wishing we could have full, high volume beautiful hair. During the past few years, hair extensions have become so popular they are now affordable and easier to maintain, allowing all of us to reap the beautiful benefits hair extensions have to offer.

Help Your Hair Win the Fight Against Humidity

One thing we deal with year round in Louisiana is humidity. Not only do we have to deal with it, our hair has to deal with humidity as well. Taking time to style your hair and feeling the pride of achieving the look that you want then you step outside and within in two minutes, all of your work was for nothing. You get in your car and go to double check your lipstick and see that you have gone from sleek and chic to fuzzy and frayed.

No More Hat Days

Resist the urge to just start wearing sassy hats. There are products available at Visions to help you combat the terrible effects of bad humidity hair. What’s important is to understand your hair type so that you can pick the right product for you. Some anti-frizz products leave your hair looking like an oil slick. Others don’t seem to work. The trick is to find the right product and the right amount to apply. Then you can be confident that you will stay sleek and chic all day and into the night.

Leave It To The Experts

Very few of us are immune to humidity. Spending dollar after dollar when you are trying to find the right product can get expensive. Ask your stylist what will work for your hair type. Your hair may not respond well to an oil based anti-frizz but may respond to a lotion. Our stylists receive continuing education so we know the latest and greatest products that will help you.

I personally recommend trying a frizz control product from Moroccan Oil. Stop by and see what products we offer. One of our stylists will be more than happy to help you.

Kevyn Aucoin Beauty at Visions Salon and Spa

kevynaucoinAucoin was born in Shreveport, Louisiana and grew up in Lafayette, Louisiana, to parents Isidore Adrian Aucoin and Thelma Suzanne Melancon, who adopted him as an infant through Catholic Charities of Alexandria, Louisiana. He had three siblings, Carla, Kim, and Keith, all of whom were adopted as well.

Aucoin was interested in makeup from the time he was a child, and frequently did his sisters’ makeup and photographed the results with a Polaroid camera—something he’d do throughout his career. Afraid to buy makeup, he would shoplift it. The guilt of stealing and fear of getting caught made him stop.

He realized he was gay at age six, and was frequently bullied at school. His parents were initially in denial of their son’s emerging sexual orientation; his mother later said, “I didn’t think Kevyn was a sissy; I just thought he was a gentle child.” In one instance, he had a teacher spank his bare buttocks in class, which Aucoin later regarded as sexual abuse. The bullying continued in high school, and he dropped out after being chased by several classmates in a truck. He enrolled in beauty school and had hoped to learn more about applying makeup, but ended up teaching the class instead.

At 18, Aucoin worked in a small corner of an exclusive women’s store in Lafayette. But the women were uncomfortable with a man doing their makeup. Thelma Aucoin recalled, “It was $30 for a makeup lesson, and these were women who paid $3,000 for a dress, but they’d never let him.”

In 1982, Aucoin moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, hoping to start a career as a makeup artist. While in Baton Rouge, he was assaulted by a security guard at Godchaux’s, a local department store. He was there with male friends to check out new makeup, when the guard approached them and said “upstairs or downtown,” meaning they could be taken to the store’s security office or be arrested. Aucoin and his friends opted for the security office, where they were beaten by security personnel. Fearing for his life, he decided to move to New York City with his then-boyfriend Jed Root (who sometimes posed as his manager) to begin his career.
