Quick Tips to Change your Look Instantly

We all get bored, with our routine, with our food, with our appearance. Change is good, it’s refreshing, it’s motivating. Here are a few Quick tips to help you Change your Look Instantly…

Extreme partings is the hair trend of the season, so if you’re not pulling that look off now, try it. Parting your hair this way will give your look an edge you might not of had before. Try changing up your normal part line. This simple change can give your hair an extra lift out of the norm.

Change it up with your makeup. Fill in those brows, just a few strokes with a brow pencil will instantly frame your eyes and make them stand out in a way they never have before. It’s all about full brows this season.

Intensify your hairs natural texture with Enjoy Curl Enhancing Spray or Aquage Sea Salt Spray. Bohemian waves will continue to trend through the winter. If you are “blessed” with straight hair like myself than use a hot tool to add a subtle bend to the middle of your hair.  When using a hot tool always be sure you apply a thermal protectant to your hair.

Add a pop of color to your lips, this will give your features a finished look and added appeal. The colder months bring with it the cool, deep tones that we tend to avoid during the warmer months. However, this season adds a color that is normally highlighted in the summer. Hot Pink will be present in all its vibrant brilliance!

Want something more drastic, call our salon & schedule your complimentary consultation. Nothing shakes up your look better than a new cut or color, by some of Albuquerque’s master stylists & hair artists!

How to wear Long Hair during Spring

Long Hair Girls…SPRING IS HERE!!!

Spring means fresh and sunny, here at Neilmarie Salon we want our guests to feel the freshness that spring brings. When you have long hair that you want to maintain through spring and summer, you can constantly find yourself considering a short haircut, or simply just a way to get the long hair off you neck and back.

You still have plenty of options. If you feel like you have worn your style curled or straight and have become bored with it, or tried a pony tail, and still nothing really has satisfied your look, do not give up you still have plenty of options.

Messy buns and messy braids are in style for spring 2014!!! You can create a messy bun that sits high, mid, or low on your head. When creating your messy bun or braid, you will have hairs that will be falling out or not in place. The falling out hairs is perfect for your style. Letting your bun look messy, lets your style look better. Any style that is sprayed down or very in place is NOT the trend for spring 2014.

Once you have created your messy bun, you can pull hair out from the hair line. That is a good way to create a messy front style in the face area. At that time you can use a curling iron to create a soft wave style. Not many tools are needed to create this style. Hair pins, hair tie, and a light hairspray.

Keep in mind, if you have long hair you still have options. Come into Neilmarie Salon and get spring ready. We can help you create a messy bun for an everyday look, or a special event. You don’t have to remove length to create a short summer look.

Salon Services for Men

Just for Men

The norm for men is to seek out the local Barber and go in for a quick clean up some “Man” talk and be on your way.  However, Salon’s offer that little extra connection, a woman’s touch if you will.

All jokes aside, there is a lot more to offer in Men’s services then just a Hair cut.  But even our hair cuts provide an extra touch.  We sit you down for a consultation; really find out what you’re looking for in a cut, not just a “template” of a cut, but one that will solicit your own personal style!  Once the consultation is accomplished our Artistic Stylist will depending on the cut either Shampoo you or begin the cut.  After the main cut, if there is a neckline to be trimmed our stylist will escort her client to the shampoo bowl where he will receive a Shampoo and a clean razor to the neckline.  Not only do you receive a clean, fresh look, but an amazing Scalp Massage!

More Hair Services, would include Color, no one says it is only for the Women Clientele.  Men are allowed to want to change the color of their hair.  Most times Men just want a subtle change, whether to add lighter colors where the Shoe Shine method would be used, or to camouflage grey with our Grey Blending technique. 

If Thinning Hair is an issue and you have 30 minutes available in your day then we have a service for you!  Schedule a Scalp Treatment that can only be done by a licensed Cosmetologist.  Our Scalp Treatment is an advanced scalp care dermabrasion from Nioxin that regenerates and revitalizes scalp skin with proven results.

While you’re getting your hair and scalp healthy and trimmed, you don’t want to forget about your face.  With frequent shaving the skin on your face where you shave will often be exfoliated, and smooth.  Because of this Men actually need Facials more than Women, with only some parts exfoliated; the only way to even skin is with a professional Skin Cleanse.

At Neilmarie Salon we understand that for our Male Clientele time is in high demand, and even if you do have the time you don’t want to spend it at the Salon!  So to meet your needs and make sure you are taken care of we have created a Men’s Only Service Menu to fit your direct needs, they are quick, efficient, and results driven services.  We have even put together packages which allow you to get more services for your money!

Call Neilmarie Salon Today and speak with one of our professional stylists to find out more!  With 2 convenient locations to service you!
