April! It feels strange just typing that word in! How can we be in April already? I have heard of some people finding some new flower shoots popping up through their dirt. It really is a time of year where we look at the temperature every day and hope to see the number climbing into the plus range!☀️ That, and the fact that I had the privilege of meeting with Carrie from the Grunthal Greenhouse to plan our summer flower pots for the salon!!! Ahhh, the smell of fresh dirt and the sight of flowers. 🌸🌺 March was, once again, a busy month. Our schedules kept our days busy and full of hard work. (I just need to put in a plug for my 'Classic Girls' here. THEY WORK SO HARD!!!! They are a team that works together for you, for their co-workers and for the benefit of the salon! I truly have THE BEST STAFF EVER!!) And so, as March turns into April, we look forward to seeing your name in our schedules so we can connect with you and how you have been doing!
So, with my 'bragging' about my staff, we do have an annoucement to make!
Anja Taranenko has joined the 'Classic Girls' team and we are excited to welcome her! Anja is currently in Grade 12 at the SRSS and she is taking hairdressing as her career choice there. She is young and comes with excitement to learn and work in the hair industry. You will see her in the role of reception and hair stylist. Watch for upcoming promos for her. She is sure to be fabulous!
This month's product pick and tip comes from Megan!
Megan is one of our senior stylists and brings a great wealth of knowledge and talent to our team. She is never afraid to take on a challenge and as a result has proven to be an exceptional leader in the hair extensions trend!
Here is what Megan says:
PRODUCT PICK: "Spring is here and so many of you are already transitioning to lighter/blonder hair! Blonde can be tricky. Because it is incredibly porous, it absorbs everything. From minerals in your water to products you put in it. If you colour begins to fade, brassiness often shines through.
SURFACE PURE BLONDE VIOLET SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER prolongs your colour results while nourishing and protecting your hair. It is naturally tinted with purple maqui berry and moringa oil. This shampoo and conditioner is free of harmful chemicals while counteracting unwanted brassy tones." HAIR TIP: "I often get asked how I create that beach wave look. In shorter hair, I always use a flat iron. In long hair, I usually use a curling iron. The trick is to leave out the last 1-2" of your ends and smooth them out afterward with heat. This creates that 'pulled out, effortless look' rather than the ringletty curl. To finish, I apply SURFACE BASSU OIL for separation and shine."

And so, as we breathe in the sweet fragrance of spring, I wish you a wonderful April! I hope you have/had a great Easter, celebrating the RISEN KING - JESUS!
With much love,
Connie for Classic Impressions Salon
