New No-Show/Cancellation Policies

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 Courtney at info@sin7salon.com.  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 [...]

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 Long ponytails.  Yawn. GAH!  Why, fashion world, why do you insist on foisting this greazy "trend" on us season after season?  Just please stop it. To leave you on a high note, here is another recycled trend but a very lovely one.  Accessories are back in a big way, and a great way to dress up your look. So which, if any, of these high-fashion trends will you be trying this year?  Let [...]

Cut your hair in a bob? Heck yes!

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 [...]

Let’s have a serious talk about bleaching your hair

By |2019-03-08T12:59:39-07:00March 6th, 2015|Hair Colour|

Wow, Kim Kardashian has gone platinum!  Admittedly not our favourite look for her, but it's definitely a gutsy move.  You might be inspired to do the same, and that's great!  Snarky picture aside, change is good and as hairdressers we totally encourage experimentation with your look.  In the interest of full disclosure and giving you the information you need to make a wise decision, here are some facts about going from very dark to very light. It very well might take 2 - 3 appointments, at about 3 hours each.  And you will be charged for each of them.  Pricing depends on the stylist and their experience.  Being a platinum blonde is perhaps not for the budget conscious. Why might it take that amount of time and work?  Well, we will be removing almost all of the pigment from your natural hair, and if you've colored your hair already, we need to remove all of that artificial pigment as well.  This can be a wild card (aka "unpredictable result), depending on [...]
