Gloss Treatment at Highlights

 Gloss Treatments come in both a clear and colored version to boost shine, and enhance natural hair color as well as seal in brand new color to make it last longer. The glaze is both ammonia-free and enriched with apricot kernel oil for beautiful care and condition. It  really brings dull hair to life by adding shine, depth and tone.  The benefit to getting a clear gloss treatment after new color is it can extend your color to last up to two weeks longer than without it.  A colored gloss treatment typically lasts one to two weeks but can last up to four weeks by limited shampooing and heat styling. Another possibility is to do the gloss procedure in between colors to help boost shine. The Treatment takes approximately 20 minutes, followed by a deep conditioning 3 step treatment to ensure you hair is thoroughly moisturized. Contact us for more details.

5 More Handy Tips

Get Rid of Green Hair with Tomato Juice

Public pools are generally over chlorinated which tend to leave your blond locks with a greenish tinge. Massage a can of natural tomato juice into your hair as if you’re lathering shampoo, the red pigments in the tomato juice will warm up any ashy or green effects returning your hair to a beautiful blond.

Irritated scalp after colour? 

After some colour procedures your scalp and hair line can be left sensitive, and red. Mix one packet of Sucrazit, or Sweet 'n' Low  into your hair-coloring solution before you apply it to prevent irritating your skin, the acid in the sugar substitute helps to balance the ph level of your colour. Who said beauty = pain.

Exfoliate your scalp to clear the dandruff

In previous post we recommended to use vinegar to help clear away dandruff. While the technique works like a charm, some clients complained that the smell of the vinegar was unpleasant. We discovered that crushing headache pills into the shampoo before you wash works just as well, and without the pungent smell. The crushed up pills work like an exfoliator in your shampoo and help lift away the dead skin the same way as it work on your face and skin.

At Home Gelatin Treatment

Create a protein treatment at home by dissolving a packet of clear gelatin in hot water. Apply the mixture generously to the ends of your hair and leave it on for 15-30 minutes. You will notice how much healthier your hair feels.

Brighten up Red Hair with Cranberry Juice

If your rocking red hair like Rihanna you might have noticed the the colour fades fast! Red dyes have the largest color molecules, which is why they wash out quickly. Cranberry juice can make red hair look temporarily more vibrant if you need a quick boost. Pour it onto hair and let sit for five minutes (or longer for a more dramatic effect), then rinse.

Dianna Argon's New Look

Dianna Argon from Glee is your classic America pin up girl, drop dead gorgeous with stunning blond hair. Well that was! She has taken a downwards spiral in terms of hair, and has become the latest in a long line of Hollywood celebrities to get a neon hair makeover. This was just a month after she hacked off her beautiful long locks. While I do encourage people to be more adventurous  when it comes to their hair I recommend to leave the neon tones for clothes, nails and accessories. If you insist on rocking the vibrant tones rather go for hair extensions that can be removed as soon as you get sick of them.

Big Spenders

Celebrities are renowned for spending astronomical amounts of money on their appearance to be picture perfect. From breakthrough cosmetic treatments to high end fashion, our idols are the pioneers in world wide trends. But how much do they spend on their hair?


Queen B reportedly has a climate controlled room where she stores her wig collection valued at over $1,000,000 dollars. Some of her wigs are valued at over $10 000 dollars on there own as each is hand crafted from the highest quality of natural hair available! What is nice to hear though is that Beyonce donates  her hair pieces to a charity that provides wigs to women undergoing chemotherapy.   


Rihanna travels with Ursula Stephen, her $3,300-a-day hairstylist, and trusts only her to do her ‘do. That’s over $15 000 a week! Maybe if Rihanna didn’t change her hairstyle once a week, she wouldn’t be blowing through all that money.

Jennifer Aniston

While traveling around Europe for  red carpet events Jennifer spent $50 000 in one week on her stylist  Chris McMillan.

Justin Bieber

Justin pays his 'House call only' stylist Vanessa Price $750 dollars to cut his hair. At least he made his money back after he chopped off his swoop style, he auctioned off his trimmings for a charity organization and managed to raise $41 000 dollars!

Katy WTF are you doing!

We all Love Katy Perry, but WTF has come over her in the past few months? She started out as a gorgeous brunette at the beginning of her career. The Dark color was her trademark, and made her eyes pop. Then she decided to do a secret transformation, which was a complete disaster, and spent last month walking around with orange hair.

She then lightened it a little more for the premier of The Smurfs, and looked like a baby chick puked all over it, and now she has been spotted with bright pink hair! The pink makes her look insipid!  One can only hope that this neon tone will fade to a beautiful pastel blond, but maybe we are hoping for to much! Could someone please chop off her stylists hands!!!!

Fall/Winter 2011/12

While summer is in full swing here in Israel, catwalks are buzzing around the world with the autumn/winter collections for 2011/12, and pretty soon we will be handling requests to update our clients hues to match the season. While ice blonds and matt browns are popular during summer, we have noticed that honey tones are fast becoming the must have hair color for the coming season. Falling into the honey range are gold, chestnut, amber and maple. These hues compliment every complexion and bring radiance to post summer hair colors. The INOA brand from L'Oreal Professional has an extensive range of golden tones, and with their break through ODS (oil delivery system) technology you can rest assured that your locks will not be as shiny and healthy with any other hair color.
