Unite Products: Exciting!

I’ve been using the new Unite product line for a few months now. After thorough testing, I find the line is light weight, makes the hair feel luxurious, and looks so shiny and healthy. All I can say is fantastic!

Unite is carried by some of the most popular salons in San Francisco, and no wonder.

  • It is gluten-free, sulfate-free, paraben-free, and sodium chloride-free.
  • It is pH-balanced at 5.5, so it will not strip your color or dry out your hair.
  • Unite products are also safe to use after straightening treatments without fear of reversing the results.

My favorite products in the line are:

  • 7SECONDS™ Detangler: It detangles like no body’s business.
  • BLOW&SET™ lotion: Mix it with U Argan Oil before your blowout for a result that’s perfection.
  • LIQUID Dust: The newest product to the hit the salon last week. A weightless and workable elixir that delivers volume, texture and hold like never before. You may use it on wet or dry hair.

PLUS: They also believe in giving back through #uniteinactsofkindness, supporting both children and animals.

I love this line and I’m so excited to be part of the Unite family.

R U ready for a new spring look? A new color, some hi-lights? and a new haircut?

Blonde Hair for Spring
Erika Redding, the owner of Red Union Salon loves changing her clients looks! When her clients are open, she loves changing their hair color seasonally. In spring she starts by adding hi-lights to her clients hair. Her Summer hair color is usually the lightest and brightest with lots of dimensional hi lights. She starts deepening the color in fall with lots of autumn shades and in winter the color is usually the darkest, coolest for a more and dramatic effect.

One of Erika’s favorite colors to use are Redken’s Shades EQ, an equalizing conditioning color gloss. She has 35 shades of color to choose from and will create a striking new looks for you. The reason she chooses Shades EQ is the color adds a lot of shine and makes the hair look and feel better the first time no matter how damaged your hair is and improves use after use. The color is designed to last approximately 6-8 weeks. However, if you follow Erika’s recommendation to shampoo your hair no more than 2-3 times a week your color will last even longer.

Erika’s favorite color to use when hi-lighting is Matrix SoColor.
SoColor Honey Creme hair color is the number one professional tube hair color in America. The advanced organic honey base and extra moisturizing ingredients deliver beautiful, lasting results with complete predictability.

It’s her permanent color line that she uses to create dimensional high-lights and low-lights as well as her permanent tints.
The “ultra-light blonde” series are awesome if you love to be blonde. A totally natural look for complete coverage or high lighted effects.
The “gray natural series” with double pigmentation are outstanding if you wish to completely cover stubborn grays or blend your gray.

So if you’re ready for your sexy new spring look, Erika is offering $20 off her color services and $20 off her haircuts until Summer with this offer.
