There are a few things we are really into at Sin 7 Salon: hair, fashion, and doing good stuff for people in need. So, for us, the Women of Value Fall Fashion Fair is a perfect fit. Together with Vanilla Clothing, Mela Boutique, Malary's Fashion Network, Sight for Sore Eyes Optical, and Flo Motion Fitness and Yoga studio, we are proud to be involved in the Women of Value Fall Fashion Fair. On Sunday, November 6 at the swanky ULounge (16051 24th Ave), we will be bringing White Rock and South Surrey the latest in boutique fashion and runway-inspired hairstyles, all to benefit Servants Anonymous Society (SAS): The SAS Surrey program is designed as an original self-help approach to recovery for female youth. The program provides sexually exploited females with secure housing and a lifeskills program (ASK Centre for Learning). The ASK Centre for Learning is designed to provide each participant with an opportunity to learn the personal and occupational skills required to help them obtain and maintain employment, return to school, and/or raise their children on a full-time basis. Your $20 ticket gets you a seat to this incredible event, a glass of wine, a little nosh (yum!), and an afternoon of fun and fashion. Tickets are available at Sin 7 Salon and Vanilla Clothing in White Rock. If you're feeling lucky (and you want to be kept up-to-date on your fave salon's goings-on), "like" Sin 7 on Facebook and you could win 2 tickets! Draw is on Friday, Nov. 4 and the winner will be notified on Facebook that afternoon. P.S. We will be doing alternative feather and other colored extensions at the show ($8 - $10 ea. including application), as well as complimentary lipstick touch-ups and hair consultations, and Aveda stocking stuffers for the holidays will be [...]
As usual, I've been combing the internet and industry magazines to bring you the very latest in hair, makeup, and other vainglorious-ness. Since it's now autumn, what I keep reading ad nauseam is "red, gold, deeper, richer" for hair color. The leaves are changing, days are shorter, furnaces across the land are kicking on, and bundling up in a sweater sounds like the nicest, coziest thing in the world. Warmer, darker hair color seems logical, and it is. That being said, there are a few very important things to keep in mind when considering a change to warmer and/or darker. First off, ask yourself (and your stylist) this: do I look good in warm colors? If you're not sure, take a look at your wardrobe. Can you pull off gold, yellow, or orange in a shirt or accessories? Do you look better in creme, or white? Is the vast majority of your jewelry yellow gold, or sterling silver/white gold/platinum? These are key indicators not only whether or not you look good with warm tones, but what you feel most comfortable with (and believe me, if you feel GREAT about something, you will rock it almost no matter how much it clashes with your skin tone). If you are wearing nothing but cool tones (white, gray, silver, purple, blue), you might want to rethink that copper base color with honey highlights. Likewise, if you are best in warm tones, you may want to skip ashy colors, anything that looks like eggplant aka purple or red-violet, and bright, cool platinum blondes. Secondly, are you thinking about going dark or red for the fall and winter, but returning to blonde in the summer? Please, PLEASE take a deep breath and consider less drastic options. Returning to your prior lighter color once you've tinted [...]
