Interested in Bangs?

Bangs can instantly transform your face and make any haircut look much different. That doesn’t change the fact that chopping off that much hair can be scary! If you are thinking of getting bangs, check with your stylist to guide you in finding the right style and maintaining the best match for you.

When considering bangs, consider your hair texture too. Curls and bangs don’t always pair well, but they aren’t impossible. Talk to your stylist about blending in the bangs to the rest of your cut. Don’t cut bangs when hair is wet, especially if your hair has curl or wave in it. (This is for those of you who insist on trimming your own bangs!)

Consider the upkeep. Bangs take regular trims. Ask your stylist if they offer free bang trims (many do, it’s easier than fixing a bad home trim.)

Not ready for the thick bangs? Try side-swept bangs paired with long layers. Layering hair with bangs works the best. One of the secrets to a great side-swept bang is that it blends in well with the rest of your hair. Side-swept bangs grow out beautifully.

Dry bangs first before drying the rest of your hair. Your bangs are shorter so they dry faster. Once you get the perfect cut, you need to make sure you properly know how to blow dry your bangs. Many women use a round brush and that can create “bubble bangs,” a bang syndrome that could be avoided by using a flat or paddle brush while blow drying. Ask your stylist for tips.

Bangs suit every face shape. They also suit every hair length. They work with pixie cuts, short hair, shoulder-length, bobs and even long hair.

Contrary to some opinions, bangs won’t go out of style. They may change style, but on some people bangs perfect their style.

If you aren’t growing out bangs but just want a change in your look, ask your stylist to cut long bangs at an angle. Blow dry them. Brush bangs forward and blow dry them as if they were blunt bangs. Brush them from side to side as you blow dry. Once dried, spritz hairspray on your fingers, and then comb your fingertips through your bangs to maintain a feathery effect. Unlike blunt bangs, side-swept bangs don’t need to be trimmed as often.

Bangs are the perfect choice if you want to change your look but don’t want to take off dramatic length. If you don’t like them, they will grow out. If you suffer from a fear of getting bangs, you can fix that by scheduling a consultation with your stylist and starting with side-swept bangs which grows out more quickly and more beautifully than blunt bangs.

San Francisco Featured Artist: Jennifer Ewing

Featured Artist Jennifer Ewing at Red Union Hair Salon and Art Gallery San Francisco, CA

Artist Statement:
My themes of passage, transformation, movement in time and space are still with me and as vital to my work as they were when I began this series in 2005. For me, the boat has a dual purpose, It is the vehicle that keeps me safe as I journey but also offers an invitation for the viewer go on their own journey.

The work began as a tribute to my father’s memory. A powerful, motivating force came into my art that gave me a chance to go beyond myself into a bigger place to create from.

Today it is an exploration of each person’s ultimate journey- and the stages they pass through as they ride in the boats. The passengers stop to breath along the way and their breath contributes to the luminosity that I treasure. Along the way, the invisible passenger voyages near to the moon, planets and is guided by universal light through color fields.

Working and experimenting with various media in painting gives me a chance to layer materials and messages about spacial relationships; the boat to water, to the universe, or to the light. I love to draw on top of the paintings because the mark making gives rhythm and movement in addition to the color.

San Francisco Featured Artist: Jamie V. Rodriguez

Featured Artist Jamie V. Rodriguez at Red Union Hair Salon and Art Gallery San Francisco, CAJamie V. Rodriguez’ obsession with postcards started at a young age. Growing up in both Los Angeles and San Francisco, she was exposed to graphic design, pop culture, and print advertising, specifically postcards.

To pursue a career in the arts and also keep up with fast paced technology, Jamie V. Rodriguez studied graphic design at the Academy of Art University. Needing a more organic outlet, she took random objects in her surroundings and made a postcard everyday. Soon, the pieces of artwork grew, forming a whole series. Thus, The Daily Postcard was born.

Jamie V. Rodriguez is currently a freelance web designer and is also pursuing her other passion…traveling.

What Did Red Union Salon Know Before Paris Hilton?

Paris Hilton with John Hangarter’s
Miracle Makers Club

San Francisco: Paris Hilton holding Miracle Makers Club book by Joan HangarterJoan Hangarter sent me an email today saying “Oh my God, Paris Hilton is reading my book!”

Four months ago Red Union Salon had a staff meeting with Joan Hangarter from Miracle Makers Club and Cheryl Stokes from Delphi Tree. The purpose of this meeting was to change our energy in the salon and create some miracles. The meeting blew my mind. There where so many “miracles” in the salon daily it was hard to believe.

Red Union Salon had been in business for 5 years and we needed to fall in love with the Salon all over again. Not to mention it was time to take the salon to the “next level”. What was the next level you ask? We have been getting the salon ready for “Critical Mass” for the past year and a half. To achieve that, we implemented an online booking service, “Appointment-Plus” as well as an answering service, Pat Live both booking appointments 24/7. Kevin Edwards, our webmaster, has also had a very strong impact of achieving our goal by rebuilding us an amazing website 4 months ago – and when it comes to SEO and website optimization “master” would be an understatement.

So, while everyone is screaming “The sky is falling!”, I am happy to report we are going stronger than ever imaginable. Red Union Salon’s business has increased 30% in the last 4 months all thanks to these wonderful folks and their outstanding abilities. At this rate “Critical Mass” is only months away and we are very excited!
