Sigh. We really REALLY didn't want to ever have to do this. Instead of the issue of no-shows and last-minute cancellations getting better, it's gotten exponentially worse, so we've had to implement a new policy. Please take a minute to read about it here, and if you have any questions or concerns please direct them to Kat or Courtney at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there is a true emergency, of course we will deal with that accordingly.
We hold our guests in the highest regard, and we absolutely respect your time and the fact that "life happens". We also care deeply for our team of stylists, who work so very hard at Sin 7 Salon making you look and feel wonderful. As you know, we live in one of the most expensive regions in North America, and our cost of living is going nowhere but UP UP UP. When you're missing a huge chunk of a paycheque due to no-shows and last-minute cancellations, well, it makes it that much harder just to survive. Our stylists work on a commission basis, and we need to protect them. When you make an appointment, that time is held for you. If you don't show, that stylist doesn't get paid for that time (sometimes up to 3 or more hours, depending). If you cancel within 24 hours, we have a very slim chance of filling the spot. More than 24 hours, we can usually do it. We hope you understand.
What's up in hair cuts, styles, and colour for spring? Harpers Bazaar brings us a nifty slide show of trends fresh off the runway. Frankly, there's nothing too groundbreaking this season, just re-hashing and tweaking of seasons past, but still very pretty, and best of all, mostly wearable for us mortal women! Here's a look:
Pretty Boho waves are back again for another spring/summer
l like big buns and I cannot lie!
Channel your inner Daenerys Stormborn, First of her Name, Queen of the Andals, the Unburnt, Mother of Dragons, etc... with some gorgous braids this summer
Hey everyone just a reminder that our old phone number is no longer active. To reach Sin 7 Salon you'll need to edit your speed dial to 604-560-5360. Thanks! See ya soon!
Bobs are back in a big way, baby! Well actually they've never really gone out since like...1920, but there's a reason for that. The bob is one of the most versatile looks out there, almost universally flattering, and works with most hair types including very fine. Last season's Lob (a name I have always hated with a white hot buring intensity aka "long bob") is getting a shorter update this spring/summer. We are seeing more blunt-ish, classic looks now a la Vanessa Hudgens:
One thing's for sure, this season's bob has gone a bit shorter - definitely above the shoulders! Lauren Conrad also bobbed her hair, but in a less blunt, more choppy/textured way:
Uh, we are seriously hoping those are stunt scissors and that she is not advocating doing this cut yourself! Please, leave it to the pros or you will end up with a MOB (messed up bob) or a COB (crooked bob) or a IASHMOB (I'm a sobbing hot mess bob).
We will be more than happy to help give you the bob of your dreams! Bring pictures so we can discuss what you desire, and we will help make the call as to whether or not texture (ranging from a little to a lot) or bluntness is the best way to go for your particular hair type. We'll also discuss your perfect or preferred length, taking into account your face, neck and shoulders as well as your comfort level with above-the-shoulders hair. Bangs? Maybe! Sure! But we agree with Kristin Ess that this modern take on the bob looks coolest without them and we should be careful that there's not too much hair overwhelming your lovely face.
Give us a jingle at 604-560-5360 or book online (just scroll up and to the top right for the link) to book your spring cut, whether it's a new bob, a long bob, or just a trim to freshen your ends. See you soon at Sin 7!
