Important info: New Online Booking Link. And it works!

Sin 7 Salon has just graduated from the Software School of Hard Knocks!  Sometimes when you run a business you make decisions that don't end up working out that well.  Our latest foray into switching software systems was an unmitigated disaster, so we've upgraded and updated our former system.  Live and learn!  Whew!  

Online booking is back and better than ever, so click here or at the link to your right under the "Shop Aveda" button.  

We apologize for the kerfuffle and any mistakes/misbookings/extra emails/missing emails that may have happened in the process.  It was a very trying time for all of us at Sin 7 Salon when we started figuring out that perhaps we'd made a big mistake.  The new software just wasn't doing what we needed it to do so we had to let it go.  The good news is we're up and running smoothly again - hooray! 

The Perm Resurgence

What I'm about to say may come as a shock: perms are back. Yes, you read that right. Perms. As in permanent curls, like grandma had, with that foul smell that permeates (pun intended?) every room the perm-ee enters. You're probably imagining the larger than life, near-afro-status perms of the '80s. Maybe you even had one yourself, or you've seen photos of your mom (like mine) trying and failing to rock the style before you were even born. After the perm's heyday came to its long awaited demise, stylists and salon-goers alike swore off the look, vowing never to perm again! That is, until now. Because yes, the perm is back. And this time, it is not your mother's perm.

In order to appreciate what perms are today, let's first look back at the origins. In 1872, French stylist Marcel Grateau discovered he could create wave in the hair by heating a two-pronged tool over a gas burner and then applying it to the hair. This style became popular with the flapper girls of the 1920s looking to glam up their bobs with a bit of texture, a look that became known as the 'Marcel wave'. The invention of this early form of the curling iron took Grateau from styling prostitutes in Paris' slums to adorning French elites and celebrities with his signature look.

Yes, we can now recycle your hair! Sin 7 becomes a Green Circle Salon.

Green Circle Salons from Campfire on Vimeo.

It's always been such a bummer for us not being able to recycle hair clippings (we tried!) or the large amounts of foils we use for coloring, and rinsing so much extra color down the drain where it might enter our waterways.  We act as green as possible and recycle whatever the city will let us, but there was so much we couldn't do anything with except put it in the trash.  Plastic caps from tubes and bottles, rubber gloves, kilos of aluminum foil, bags of hair clippings, all in the garbage.  

No more!  We are happy to announce that we are now a Green Circle Salon!  Their mission:

We are a new company with a mission to make the North American salon industry sustainable by 2020. We are doing this in a way that is affordable and achievable and most importantly, impactful. We believe that over time - and with the help of guests and employees - small steps to transform each salon will make green conversion possible and sustainable.

From now on at Sin 7 Salon hair, foil, all plastic, paper, excess chemicals and expired products are all going to be recycled or properly and cleanly disposed of!  

One of the questions we've been getting is, "Isn't that expensive?".  Well, it does cost a lot do get everything where it needs to go, but through the econonics of scale, the more salons take part, the lower the overall cost.  In order to do this awesome work of diverting a whopping 80 - 95% of our salon waste from the landfill and waterways, we will add a small $1.50 environmental fee on to each service ticket.  Less than half a cup of coffee and it makes a HUGE difference!  

Please feel free to ask any questions you might have at our Facebook page or ask any of our Vanity Managers next time you're in the salon.  We are so proud to take place in this fantastic program to make a smaller environmental impact while we make you beautiful!

A bohemian bridal look can be achieved in a variety of ways, be it an undone updo or loose, tousled waves. A staple of this look is chunky braids and a flowy vibe. Add some flowers or a headband to amp up the look even more!

History of Aveda & Earth Month 2014

A few posts back I gave you the rundown on the difference between professional products and drugstore products. I hinted a bit as to why we use Aveda here at Sin 7, but I wanted to do a post on the history of the brand and tell you exactly why we deem Aveda quality enough to use on you—our treasured guests!

Aveda Banner

Founded in Minneapolis in 1978 by hair stylist Horst Rechelbacher, Aveda would not exist without the influence of an ancient Indian tradition called Ayurveda. Translating from sanskrit as the “science of life,” Ayurveda is a holistic system of healing that focuses on creating balance between mind, body and spirit. During a trip to India in 1970, Rechelbacher first encountered the system, thus inspiring his vision for his company. In its first year, Aveda Corporation partnered with two Ayurvedic experts (Drs. Vinod and Kusum Upadhyay), fusing the brand with 1000s of years of proven results: that interconnectedness, and treating the person as a whole, brings balance and harmony to our lives.

Aveda Mission Statement

The heart of Aveda lies in its connection to nature. Horst saw the lack of unity between the beauty industry and environmental sustainability and made it his mission to join the two. Here are some of Aveda's commitments to environmental responsibility and the innovative ways they promote these beliefs:
