Go Lavender & Support Cancer Awareness

lavendertattooHIP Salon is getting its lavender on for this weekend’s Community Cancer Walk & Celebration on Sunday, May 18, at The Arboretum in South Barrington.

The walk, sponsored by The Wellness Place, will raise funds for cancer awareness.

The HIP Salon team will be there too. Look for our table where we’ll be applying lavender hair extensions ($10 each) and lavender glitter tattoos ($10 each).

All proceeds will go to support The Wellness Place, which provides education, counseling and support for those affected by cancer.

Why lavender? The color signifies raising awareness for all cancers.

Can’t wait for Sunday? Come into the salon this week and get a lavender extension or glitter tattoo. No appointment needed.

And ask us about our special program New Look, New Life for clients fighting cancer.

Kerastase Introduces New Densifique Line for Stressed-Out Hair

densifique2Is the stress in your life damaging your hair?

Kerastase has the solution. Introducing Densifique, a new product line that will transform your hair from less to more – more shine, more substance and more resilience.

Stress is a natural part of our life. Unfortunately, our hair bears the brunt of the bad effects. Some of our clients, who are facing different life stresses, report: “My hair feels brittle, thinner.” “My hair breaks easily, it’s becoming finer.” “It’s dull and lifeless.”

Using Kerastase’s Densifique line of hair care products, your hair is hydrated and strengthened with a new power renewal complex formula. Here’s how it works. Gluco-peptides synthesize structural proteins, giving shine and lushness through the ends. Hyaluronic Acid, a natural mineral, retains 1,000 times its weight in moisture, adding substance through the mid-lengths. Ceramide is a lipid that acts like a intercellular cement, building resilience and strength at the roots. Together, the formula makes your hair stronger, shinier and heartier.

The product line includes:

  • Masque Densité, a daily replenishing gel masque that won’t weigh down hair.
  • Densimorphose, a thickening treatment mousse that gives instant density without weight.
  • Plus, HIP Salon provides two Densifique in-salon treatments, Concentré Densifique and Booster Densifique, that provide intensive, dramatic changes to your hair.

While we may not be able to relieve the stresses in your life, we can help your hair look beautiful and stress-free.

Stop in HIP Salon, one of the few salons in the Chicago area to carry the Densifique line, and ask us what Densifique can do for your hair.
