Vacation Ready!!

download (6)

As we hope and pray that the end of winter is getting near, we all start to get the “vacation bug”.  Warm weather, beach and sun here we come!! Every time I head out on vacation I find myself venturing onto Pinterest to find out what other people pack for that destination and look for ways to condense my packing. I’ll let you in on a secret, I have a packing problem. It’s Legit. I way over pack everywhere I go. Ask anyone who knows me well, they will confirm this and probably laugh and maybe even share a story about traveling somewhere with me and my 50 bags;)  Anyway, I thought since I love to read and hear about what other people pack for their trips that I would do a post about what our stylists here at the salon say are their MUST HAVE beach and vacation products when packing for a trip.

We will start with my “MUST HAVE” list- I’ll condense it to the ones I couldn’t live without and spare you the 57 other things I throw in my bags at the last min “just in case”;).

  1. Loreal Nutrifer Conditioning Masque– This conditioner has been my go to product for the last 15 years. I am not lying. They reformulated it a few years back when it was called Intense Repair and changed it slightly and when I heard about it I thought Id have a heart attack. Good thing it came back bigger and better than ever and It’s still my favorite product ever. This conditioner is amazing for restoring moisture and shine to your hair and keeping it healthy while you punish it with hours of fun in the sun.
  2. Bed Head Urban Antidotes Recovery Shampoo– This shampoo showed up on quite a few of our “Must Have” lists, and for good reason. Not only does it smell amazing, It helps restore moisture to hair that has seen its fair share of sun, wind and ocean and pool water. It also is nice for colored hair and protects the color without stripping it out.
  3. Shaper Hairspray–  This has been my go to hairspray for years. I love the light hold on the hair and that it is still brushable and soft after using it. The smell isn’t one everyone loves- to each their own;)
  4. Dermalogica Eye Makeup Remover and Sunscreen–  You will never find me on vacation without these 2 Dermalogica products. The eye makeup remover is a gel and it instantly removes waterproof eyeliner and waterproof mascara, both of which I never leave the house without wearing. The Sunscreen is Spf 50 and the ONLY sunscreen I can use due to an allergy to sunscreen. This one works great, isn’t greasy and is water resistant.
  5. Glop and Glam Creamsicle Spray– this one is a more recent favorite but very quickly became a must have product for both me and my daughter. It works as a leave in conditioner and detangler as well as static guard and a moisture spray when the hair is curly and feeling dry.

So there is my list of Must Have products for packing. Here are some of our other stylists lists.

Lori– Loreal Vitamino Shampoo – Amazing color protecting shampoo that smells so good! Undone texture spray, Spray wax, Texturizing Paste ( you can tell she likes texture in her hair). Masterpiece Hairspray from Bedhead. Dermalogica tinted Moisturizer (this one is awesome to get your spf, moisture and a little bit of color if you don’t want to put on full blown makeup on vacation!)

Hannah– Frizz Dismiss Shampoo, Conditioner and Serum- This whole line is great for helping smooth and tame hair with its anti humidity properties. Dream Coat- one of our top selling products that is the PERFECT travel companion. Spray on wet hair and dry it in as it is heat activated. This product lasts in the hair for 3 shampoos. It helps add shine, moisture and smoothness to the hair.  Chi Hairspray- our top selling hairspray. Smells amazing, great hold but not crunchy . Leaves the hair touchable and shiney.

Alysa– Bedhead Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner as mentioned above. It’s a 10 leave in spray, Super skinny serum (both these products are great for smoothing down wild, humidity wrecked hair.) Sculpting foam- adds some volume to your hair if you are someone whose hair tends to get limp in humidity. It helps hold and tame scrunched curls if you have naturally curly hair.

Last product packing tip- Look for travel sizes and stock up on them for vacation when they are available. They seem to only be in stock about twice a year, so if you see them, snatch them up! If you cant find your favorite products in travel size, all drug stores and walmart sell empty travel size bottles that you can easily pour your products into and still keep them under the 3oz. approved carry on size for planes. Another tip, put your bag of products into a few plastic bags before putting it into your suitcase. Trust me on this one, your clothes and everything else in your suitcase will thank you when that bottle of face wash bursts open at 36,000 feet!;) What are some of your must have products for traveling and vacation?? Feel free to comment, we’d love to hear from you!

  4. Coconut Dream leave in Conditioner– This product is nice as a leave in conditioner to hydrate and nourish the hair, but it is also great for detangling, defrizzing and smoothing while you blow dry.
  5. Creamsicle Mist Detangler– This is our #1 Top Selling Glop and Glam product so far. This spray in, leave in conditioner can be used on wet or dry hair. It works great for taming down static and flyaways on dry hair. Its perfect for scrunching into curls and letting it air dry. Both my daughter and I are using the product this way and loving it!! It works well as a leave in conditioner when sprayed into the hair and blown dry. This is a very versatile product. It’s lightweight and best of all Smells Like Creamsicles!!!

2018 Gift Ideas

With Thanksgiving now over, the 2018 Christmas shopping season has commenced and is now in full swing. Where do you fall on the shopping spectrum this holiday season?? Are you already done shopping ( me!!), just getting started, or don’t even have any ideas yet, let alone any gifts bought. If you fall into the last 2 categories, Here are a few great gift ideas both in and out of the salon that you can either stop in and shop for or add to your list!! Happy Shopping!!

In Salon Ideas-

Our salon is full of great gift ideas for the many special people in your life! Whether it be your kids teacher at school, a mom that is hard to buy for, or a wife who loves to get her hair and nails done monthly, we have you covered!

1)Wet Brushes

The salon has 3 new kinds of our popular Wet Brushes in stock. We have the Epic professional Deluxe Detangler brush- it is a heavier version of the regular wet brush and great for pulling through some really long, thick hair. We also have the Epic Professional Quick Dry wet brush that is great to use while drying your hair as it is heat resistant. We also have a bunch of Mini Regular Wet Brushes on keychains that make perfect stocking stuffers.

2) OPI POLISH

20181128_144412.jpg

Who doesn’t love nail polish in their stocking?? Even those of us who have an entire container of polish in every color imaginable at home cant resist a new bottle of fresh OPI polish!! The salon is fully stocked and has a great selection available for purchasing in our retail area.

3) WOW DREAM COAT

20181128_144543.jpg

This has been one of our best selling products for the past year. Dream Coat is an amazing, heat activated spray in product that helps smooth and shine the hair, helps with humidity and static control, adds softness and lasts in the hair up to 3 shampoos. We have sold out of this product more times than I can count. We have it available in multiple sizes right now to best serve every client. This product also now comes in a curly formula that does not have to be heat activated.

4) JOHHNY B MEN’S PRODUCTS

20181128_144631.jpg

Looking for a stocking stuffer for that hard to buy for male in your life?? How about some of our very popular Johnny B products. The All Over shampoo and body wash is a big seller amoung our male clients and it smells great!! The Dope and Mode Gels are also big sellers. I personally use the Dope gel pomade on my little boys hair and not only does it have a great hold for keeping in the style, it smells really nice and everyone always asks if he’s wearing cologne cause he smells so good.

5) Cameron Salon Gift Cards

20181128_144700.jpg

When in doubt- Gift Cards!!! Our gift cards can be purchased in any dollar amount or for any service. They do not expire. Have a family member in your life that loves to get her hair colored or nails done but hates to spend the extra money on themselves?? GIFT CARD!!! Have a mom or grandma in your life that you have no idea what to get for them?? GIFT CARD!! Did you wait til the last min and need a gift for that special someone?? GIFT CARD!!!! Stop in and pick up yours or call the salon and have one put on hold for you and pay for it over the phone with your credit card.

OUT OF SALON IDEAS-

What are my top OUT OF SALON gift ideas??

1) Gifts of Experiences!! Think family fun days like amusement park tickets, movie theater date nights, bowling nights, ice skating, zoo passes. Anything fun that people may not want to spend the money on themselves. My kids love experience gifts. Last year they got zoo tickets and tickets to the science museum and we had 2 really fun days together as a family with those gifts!

2) Subscription Boxes– Ask almost any of our stylists in the salon and they will talk your ear off about one of our favorite subscription boxes- Stitch Fix!!! Who doesn’t love a box of clothes hand picked for you by a stylist who is your personal shopper delivered right to your door!?? How does it work?? Just get online at http://www.stitchfix.com and fill out a profile all about yourself and your clothing preferences,etc. Schedule a time to receive your box in the mail and then your personal stylist will chose 5 items for you and send them in your box. Once you receive your box, you can try on all your items, read a personalized note from your stylist and get outfit ideas from the style card that comes with your items. You only pay for the items you keep. There is a shipping enveloped included in your box that you can return any unwanted items in with free shipping back to the company. If you keep your entire box, you get a 25% discount off your total. Take my word for it, you will LOVE this service and so will anyone you get this for as a gift.

3) Gift Cards– I know store gift cards are an easy gift and one everyone likes to get. Have you ever considered purchasing gift cards from somewhere that benefits either you (think Giant Eagle fuel points) or benefits someone else. Have you ever heard of a SCRIP program?? A lot of private schools are enrolled in this program and if you purchase gift cards off their students, they receive a percentage back from that purchase onto their tuition. If you are purchasing large quantities of gift cards, this is a great way to help out a family currently paying tuition, especially with multiple children enrolled. If you were planning to buy gift cards as gifts already, why not help someone out in the process!?:)

4) Meal Prep Boxes– Much like the other subscription boxes I talked about above, there are so many different food/meal prep boxes out there. A gift card for Hello Fresh, Blue Apron, Green Chef, Plated- all of these are things that would be fun to receive as a gift!! If you’re like me, cooking is at the bottom of your “things you enjoy” list followed closely by grocery shopping and meal planning. These boxes make that all super easy and deliver everything right to your door step, ready to be made. I have a client who LOVES these meal prep boxes and said it has even helped her husband be able to help with dinner prep and cooking cause of the easy to follow instructions and recipe cards that are included. I hope this has been a helpful post to give some ideas for gifts during this holiday season. Any questions about anything I suggested, feel free to comment or message me(Abra). Call or stop in the salon to pick up any of the products mentioned above! Happy shopping!
