Top Benefits for Waxing Your Sweet Spot


Why Should you Wax Your Sweet Spot? :)

1. Clean, Sexy, Smooth skin for WEEKS.
      This means no daily maintenance. Waxing can last 4-7 weeks. Leaving silky, smooth skin around your sweet spot. Whether you get a brazilian wax, (what our esteticians are known for), an in-betweenie wax, or a bikini wax,  you'll stay smooth for weeks. Waxing pulls hair from the root, eliminating the black stubble that a razor leaves on the skin.
2. Silky Skin, no razor bumps.
      You won't have to worry about razor bumps or burns... All those nasty bumps and burns come from shaving, not waxing. 

3. Thinner, less hair re-growth.
      The more you wax, the less hair that will grow. Also, hair will grow back less coarse. Fine hair is much more pleasant than thick, black coarse hair down there!

4. It is fast, effective, & convenient.
      Our esteticians usually take less than 30 minutes for a FULL brazillian. No more wasted time and energy in the shower by shaving. No more razor shopping and those little accidental cuts with new razors.

What is the Best Haircut For a Round Face Shape?

What is the Best Haircut for a Round Face Shape?

Not sure if you have a round face shape? When you pull ALL of your hair back, its easy to see! If the width of your face is about the same length, then it is ROUND! Also, a sure sign of a round face shape is the inability to see your jaw-line. Our goal is to elongate a round face shape. We want to create length to the face with our haircut, which will give the illusion of a slimmer face.
Length. If you can flaunt it, long hair works perfect with a round face shape. When hair is longer around the face, it will slim the sides and lengthen the face. BUT, for those ladies who cannot wear it long, do NOT be shy when cutting it short. The most flattering short haircut for a round face-shape is to show LESS hair, more face :). Do not hide behind your face, instead a sexy, short pixie haircut is the way to go! Leave the hair around the sides of your face on the longer side for a slimming, flirty style.
Bangs. Its all about the bangs, bout' the bangs! A side bang or a longer middle part bang flatter a round face shape. A side bang that shows the highest point of the forehead, and cuts off the sides of the face softening those round features. A middle part with a longer bang (below the cheekbones) also will give a narrower illusion and be super flattering.
Keep layering to a minimum. "Over-layering" the hair will create volume at the sides of the face which will just make the face shape appear even ROUNDER! Keep the layering below the chin and do not "over-do" your "hair-do". :)
Volume. Volume in the right places, i.e. the top of the head, will work magic with a round face shape. The haircut should give you the ease to create volume on the top of your head. (The Crown). This will elongate your round face shape and will give the appearance of an oval face shape.

Its all about the brush, bout the brush, no tangles....

Beautiful Hair Starts With The Brush.
We all have them. Round, flat, soft or hard bristle: Which hair brush is best for your hair? 
Each brush will give you a different result. I will go over some of our favorite brushes here at Salon Envy Chicago.

The Round Brush: Our favorite styling brushes that smooth hair straight or can give your hair with BODY & WAVE are the NanoThermic Round Thermal Brushes. The top 3 benefits to this brush are:
1. Ceramic Technology. Creates a smooth, long-lasting style. Its also vented to provide faster drying time.
2. Tourmaline Ion Technology. Eliminates frizz & flyaways, adds shine, and hydration to your hair cuticle.
3. Nano-Silver Technology. Nano-silver has antibacterial properties that will keep your hair feeling healthy. Check out this video about our favorite round brush.

The Best Brush for tangly hair: This is also the best brush for fine hair. Thin hair too! Tangly & Fine hair usually go hand in hand. The best brush for hair that tangles constantly is "THE WET BRUSH". You'll find it under the hashtag #thebestbrushever. It will detangle your hair WITHOUT breaking your hair or snagging. Some say, "its the only hair brush you'll ever need". They are inexpensive and now sold at SALON ENVY!
The Best Boar Bristle: Mason Pearson is known for the BEST round brush. A real boar bristle brush is a luxury, you can spend up to 300 dollars on one brush. If you think that's crazy, they've have been around since the 1800's! They naturally condition your hair, smooth frizz, and stimulate your scalp. The idea is that the natural oils from your scalp are brushed through your hair; therefore, NATURALLY conditioning the locks. 

The Best Paddle Brush: The Paul Mitchell 413 brush is an easy to work with paddle brush. You can speed up styling time by "rough drying" your hair first with a paddle brush. Whip it mostly dry with this, and then you can move on to smoothing the hair with a boar bristle hair brush or a round brush.
