“This treatment literally re-builds the hair from the inside and will leave your hair feeling reborn”, says Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon & Spa, adding “System Professional believes each guest’s hair is as unique as their fingerprints, so each of their exclusive treatments begins with an individual “energycode; a code that can only be diagnosed by certified stylists”. Fortunately, all of the stylists at Antonino Salon have gone through an extensive training and are ready to help guests discover their very own energycode.

RosewaterBalancingMist

It’s that time of year again. Time bring out the patio furniture and pack away your winter wardrobe. It’s also time to adjust your skin care regiment. In the winter months, skin needs a richer, more emollient moisturizer to create a protective layer in order to retain moisture. In the summer, however, sometimes all that is needed is a light sunscreen. And if a sunscreen alone doesn’t do the trick, it is recommended to keep a bottle of Rosewater Balancing Mist in the fridge and to use it to refresh and hydrate your skin.

Here are a few more Summertime tips to keep your skin looking better than ever:

Sleeping with your makeup on
First, cleanse and tone with Jurlique Purifying Foaming Cleanser with Green Tea and Turmeric to repair, plus witch hazel to tighten pores. Splash your face with plenty of cold water, and then mist skin with Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist or Jurlique Citrus Purifying Mist to soften and balance. Next, apply two pumps of Jurlique Herbal Recovery Gel to the palm of your hands and press into face, neck and décolleté. This is a multi-vitamin serum containing 19 potent botanical extracts, (think health food for your skin). It helps to boost cellular recovery from the damaging effects of sun, smog and stress, with vitamins A, C, E and Gingko Biloba to repair and protect, Ginseng Root to firm, and Evening Primrose Oil to replenish vital lipids.

 

Getting rid of dark circles

Chill Jurlique Herbal Recovery Eye Gel in the fridge. De-puffing extracts include Eyebright and Echinacea, while Arnica, an amazing dark circle fighter, reduces the swelling. Marshmallow Extract delivers line-softening hydration. Apply one pump with your ring finger, the weakest finger, and pat under the eye area in a C shape, working up to the top of the cheekbone and onto the brow bone.

Repairing Masks

Taking 10 minutes for a repairing mask can make a huge difference in the way you look and feel. Wash your face and pat dry. Take a quarter size amount of Jurlique Intense Recovery Mask and blend a generous layer onto the face and neck. Kaolin clay deep cleans pores while Avocado Oil and Carrot Extract revive skin, reversing damage from too much sun or late night fun.

Pony Lights

Pony Lights

This beautiful new Ombre called Ponylights was created by Cassie at Antonino Salon and Spa in Birmingham, Michigan.

Ombre (French for shading) is a  low maintenance Highlighting technique that leaves the hair darker on the roots throughout the mid-length and gradually becomes lighter from the mid-length to the ends. By using a special lightener that doesn’t dry out, the color is painted on in a customized fashion by using a Balayage technique.

To find out if Ponylights would work for you and to find out why Antonino Salon and Spa is the best salon in town, reserve an appointment today by calling 248-258-5990.

Synfully Sun-Kissed

SYNFULLY SUN-KISSED, from Antonino Salon and Primary Syn Hair Color’s most recent trend release, “SYNFUL-2015” has arrived just in time for the warm weather and is perfect for someone who has never had color before and wants to add a little “summer” into their hair.

“By placing light and dark colors in specific places, it makes the highlights pop” said Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon and Spa in Birmingham, Michigan. Adding “light colors appear brighter when they are next to darker colors. And since, the color is so subtle, the new growth will be very diffused, making this a perfect color for someone who doesn’t want to make a total commitment to hair color”.

Be sure to reserve your appointment today to see if SUN-KISSED hair color is right for you and to see for yourself why Antonino Salon and Spa is the best salon in Birmingham.
