Be your own kind of Beautiful

 "People will stare. Make it worth their while." -Harry Winston

As hair and skin professionals, we enjoy giving you walkable, wearable, living hair expression along with healthy, vibrant skin and eye grabbing lashes. You are beautiful in your own unique way. Your look is like no other and you inspire us!  It is our pleasure giving our professional opinion and yet we love hearing what ideas you might have for us. We REALLY enjoy working together and we are a team. Yes, what you do at-home is just as important as what we do with your hair, skin and lashes when you visit us.

Here are some product suggestions, tips and tricks on what we are really into right now.

Several of our stylists including Ray Taaffe and myself are in love with Glam Shine Cloud by O Way.

We recommend using a spray or two in the palm of your hair to disperse throughout the hair. If you are looking for NYE shine, spray LIGHTLY at full arms length above the head. 

 Here are some great ways to use it:

  • Use on your hair as a finishing polish to any style
  • Great for smoothing fly-aways for any looks done in-salon or on your own
  • Breaks up waves, just beautifully
  • It makes any hair color POP with shine

Style Pro tip: Ray suggests keeping your iron slightly hotter, leaving the hair on the iron for a shorter time span... be it 300 or 400 degrees... both are really damn hot. Shock your hair for less time rather than holding the hair on for 10 seconds in order to achieve the curl you want.

Head coordinator, Devon LOVES making any style last as long as possible after receiving a hair service, at Pure. She suggests using our gem of a product, Bari Natural's Dry Shampoo! Simply shake it in where you need it, leaving your style looking nice and fresh.

 

 

Party Hair Tips

Another one of our favs for a medium hold finishing spray would be Yarok Feed Your Hold. This is a great party hair product. It will sustain a natural looking style that will not flake or weight your hair down. 

  • WET HAIR Use as a styling lotion before blow drying or a roller set
  • DRY HAIR Spray full arms length above your head to seal the hold
  • STYLE NOTE Spray on hair while curling iron is heating each section for a faster hold

Skin expert, Caitlin Hart suggests instead of potentially damaging your skin by too frequently using exfoliants like scrubs, retinol and vitamin C serums, peels and more, try the 40/60 rule. Try 40% exfoliating products and 60% rebuilding products. Instead of layering product on top of dead skin let Caitlin help you pick the perfect routine!

Skin Therapist, Emily Jones is really into iLike' Sour Cherry Toner and ANY exfoliant she can get her hands on right now. She is in love with fresh natural looking foundations, too.

Pure Stylist, Stacy Freeman is into beachy, loose waves, rooted, balayaged & babylighted blondes, whispy/textured layers, cornrows, braids and pastels.

Stacy's tip for her guests is that she thinks the most important part of her hair service is the consultation; mini interview, if you will. This is where she will determine your mood, style, and goals for your service on any given day. She loves when you ask her questions. She is very passionate and has so much information to share. Be prepared to learn. So, please feel free to take notes!

Featured Artist: Nancy Davis Langford

NANCY DAVIS LANGFORD

Painter Nancy Davis is an American artist who has produced a distinctive, bold body of work during her eclectic career as a painter. Richly layered and visually dense, explosively colorful and emotionally insightful, Nancy’s paintings exist in the space between life, reality and realm of dreams.

Over the course of several years Nancy often painted with her close friend and mentor artist Toller Cranston in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She developed a deep connection with the land, light and colors of Mexico, as well as with Toller himself, and her vision was shaped during this transformative time.

Nancy’s pieces are featured in private collections around the world. An underlying framework for some of her work has been through the world of music. Nancy’s images grace many CD covers. Nancy began her art career in Seattle, WA and has since relocated to Nashville, TN in 2012. 


 

Nancy's collection of originals and prints are available for viewing and/or purchase on the walls of Pure!
