C. Joy Salon is nominated for the Best of Western Washington 2014 in the category of Hair Salon! Would you vote for us?
It really is, as the cliche goes, an honor just to be nominated among some of the best salons in the Seattle area. We really do try to create an atmosphere that leaves you feeling beautiful every time.
We hear it every day around the salon & spa. “I’ve never felt this beautiful before!” “What did I do before you?” “I never imagined I could have eyelashes like this!” “My self image is more important than I thought it was.” “My skin feels and looks so good!” “My hair always feels so soft after I get it done here!” “You have worked your magic again!”
The relationships created with your professionals are authentic, and they are a great privilege of being in the service industry. We know YOU know about our professionals- but would you vote so someone else could have the experience of being cherished by C. Joy Salon? So that someone else could find that amazing stylist that just “gets” her? So that someone could discover what it was like to have amazing hair or great eyelashes?

We had a fantastic time adventuring out as a team together in Las Vegas at the Redken Symposium show. We learned new color formulations, color techniques on a new settle Ombre, color blocking, foil placements and top hits on styling. Here is a video recap of our trip:
I have used morracanoil for years and have loved it! Moroccanoil is an ultra-light formula which is absorbed by the hair instantly, resulting in a natural, silky finish and brilliant shine. I’m so excited to tell you we now carry it at our salon. Our clients are absolutely diggin it! Dry hair is instantly hydrated using Moroccanoil. Moroccanoil is generally what we will use on your hair the next time you come in, but feel free to request it as well so you dont miss out. Moroccanoil not only has the ability to restore over-processed hair damaged by environmental factors and chemical procedures, but it also revives, hydrates and detangles hair! Here is some history behind this amazing product:
At Moroccanoil®, our passion is empowering beautiful transformations. We started with the original Moroccanoil Treatment which revolutionized the haircare industry. We built our reputation on positive word of mouth from runways to salons to editorial spreads. Our antioxidant infused, nutrient rich, innovative formulas are unmatched and provide dramatic results. That is why salon-exclusive Moroccanoil® is preferred by professionals and consumers alike — because our products simply work.
A new client called with a question.
She is attempting to grow her color out to her natural color. She has 2-3 inches of new growth that is her brown natural color and blonde previously highlighted ends. She is curious if we would be able to match her natural color, or blend her color to look more natural as it starts to grow out. She asked what the process would be and asked for a tip to keep her hair looking fresh and clean.
Eventually, ladies who like to color their hair will have this same question! It is a common question.
Going back to your natural color can be a long and not too cute process. It can sometimes be an emotional undertaking with a few tears shed along the way. There are ways to make this task a prettier one! The best way to tackle this situation is to feather low light as close to natural color as possible to soften the line of demarcation. This is simply the line where the natural hair ends and the colored hair starts. Feathering low lights will give you the look of being in the sun. Ombre is a look that lots of women are paying for. This is where the roots and some of the mid shaft is a darker, richer color and the ends are lighter. Demi-permanent color or a gloss is another option to help with this transition. Keep in mind that some woman have a natural hair color that is not flattering with their skin tone. Your C.Joy stylist can help you with this and suggest alternatives such as a warmer version of your natural shade!
Once you have had your color service it is very important to protect your investment, by using color safe shampoo and conditioner. When your hair has been lightened the color tends to fade quicker, due to porosity of hair and dryness. A leave in conditioner will help lock color in and protect from UV rays as well as heat. This is key to keeping rich, shiny, happy hair!
Finally, as you settle into your natural color, consider other changes to your hair and lifestyle. Perhaps add layers where you once had highlights, maybe taking up a new hobby, or begin an exercise routine. Going back to your natural color is a reinvention of yourself. In a way, it is going back and accepting the old you. It is an opportunity to find a new sparkle of joy in an old place!
If you are interested in going back to natural, your C.Joy stylist would be happy to help you with this change!
