Blow Dry Bootcamp Overview

Last week Rio Hair Studio hosted our second Blow Dry Boot Camp!

What is a Blow Dry Boot Camp you might ask?

The first BDBC we taught 5 guests how to style their own hair based on the tools they brought from home. It was a fun time but we felt we could do better.

 

This time we feel we have come up with the formula for success.

Class began at 630pm. We served appetizers, beverages and a large dose of hair knowledge to 21 guests. We set up four mannequins for demonstrations as well as a practice tool for the attendees.

 

After a brief introduction from the stylists, we split the group into four separate groups: (insert “name of groups” here)

 

Jason Kendrick manned the first mannequin station. He demonstrated how to curl hair with a flat iron and then let the group try their new learned techniques on the mannequin. No Fear because if the hair is damaged the mannequin does not cry.

 

The second station involved blow dry techniques for a smooth and Bouncy blow out. Kris Cantwell was our tutor on these techniques; she used a round brush to help to hair fall into perfect blown out locks.

 

Heidi Hull, on mannequin number three, concentrated on teaching our guests how to master the fishtail braid. There was great enthusiasm between our guests to get this braiding ability down.

 

Our fourth station was all about using a wand to create curls and waves. Shelby Dickerson was a master at getting the guests involved with her mannequin as well as each other. After 1 hour of shifting from one mannequin to another we broke into smaller groups and our guest received the one on one attention they wanted for any specific questions they had, or further instruction on any technique.

 

We had great specials of 25% off all our Tools from Sam Villa and Bio Ionic. We were featuring Redken’s two new “Pillow Proof” products along with a great style saving satin pillowcase. We also launched our blow dry menu featuring four of the hottest styles we see in fashion today.

 

Our Blow Dry Menu features some wonderful ways to start your week or weekend out with style. Packages of buy 3 get 1 free are available.

All of these specials will be extended through the holidays into the new year.

Olaplex: Blonde Insurance

olaplex-logo

 

Olaplex is a brand new product developed by chemists that adds insurance to blonding and coloring your hair. Now there is no need to fear damaging effects to your hair because Olaplex is formulated to protect the hair and make it stronger during and after your color service.

Dr. Eric Pressly and Dr. Craig Hawker have invented a single ingredient product, free of silicone and oils, that virtually negates damage from chemical, thermal, and mechanical stress. Olaplex reconnects broken disulfide sulfur bonds and prevents the hair from damage by building it stronger and preventing the formation of sulfate groups on the hair. It is a single chain of reactive carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and sulfur. This means its free of silicones, oils, aldehydes, parabens, and gluten.

Olapex allows your color to be brighter and more vibrant while keeping the integrity of your hair. But it’s not just for blondes, by maintaining the integrity deeper colors will remain richer longer.  In fact it makes your hair softer, shinier, and easier to manage with less frizz for weeks!

Olaplex is a two step process added to your color service. Bond Multiplier No.1 will be added to the formula while Bond Perfector No.2 is applied to the hair directly before the shampoo. For more information ask your stylist during your next consultation to see if Olaplex is right for you.
