Behind the Scenes of Our Photoshoot

Standard

If you were wondering where Salon Disegno has been for the last two days, you are not alone.  We just wrapped our two-day amazing photoshoot led by the talented Noah Hatton. Noah is well known in the fashion business for his ability to style hair in any environment.  Georgia’s heat, humidity and wind certainly put his skills to the test.  Noah has been assisting, working, and teaching in the hair industry since high school.   His work has been featured on multiple magazine covers, fashions spreads, and advertisements.  We are so thrilled to have worked with him so closely.  After multiple visits to the salon to teach us the ropes, the photoshoot was finally here.

Two days, 15 models, production managers, videographer, multiple wardrobe changes and over 10 locations- we can safely say we worked our tails off.  We are so excited to see the final product!  Check out some behind the scene shots to tide you over until our final product is finally ready.

Prom Dreams come true for Gwinnett Teens

Prom Dreams come true for Gwinnett Teens

Salon Disegno loves to give back to Gwinnett!  Earlier this month, we teamed up with Gwinnett County DFCS (Devision of Family and Children Services) to provide essentials for a perfect prom night.  This 4th annual Promstarganza provided dresses, tuxes and shoes for teens in need.  Along with the formal attire, teens also received hair and make-up tips for the big night!

Our lovely stylists (some pictured above) donated their time and skills to be a part of this amazing event.  As stylists, we get the opportunity to talk to many of the people in Gwinnett and we feel it is very important to contribute to the local community. Every month we have a specific service project.  With our specific skill set, helping teens with a prom look is right up our alley.

“Seeing the transformation was beautiful!  Those girls were so different from start to finish, inside and out!”  ~ Katie Jo Williams

You could really see that the girls felt beautiful.  They were so grateful and sweet.  One of the girls hugged me after I did her hair and make up.  She said we are magical fairies! ” ~ Christina Lindsey

Prom is meant to be a fun, memorable experience, and I think we helped bring a little of that excitement back to the girls!” ~ Hollyanne Porter

“This opportunity to make these young women feel beautiful was so fulfilling and rewarding! I feel lucky to be able to share something that I love doing with people that get so much out of it.”  Amanda Chase

We helped the girls feel pretty and like they can actually have fun at prom and not worry about wearing or looking the part…It was really touching to me.” Hannah Moore

A big THANK YOU to our guests who donated gently used prom gowns, donating makes a huge difference!

If you ever want to help, ask your stylist how Salon Disegno is giving back this month.  Also, you can donate to our Fringe Benefits program.  We draw from that to provide local scholarships and fund other projects that help out all around Gwinnett.

Sounds great for the four stylists Salon Disegno has attending this event right now!  But what do we get?  Redken Symposium is also known to us in the Redken world as a premiere of new products! New colors and technology are normally unveiled.   Last symposium in 2013, we were introduced to the Redken Steam Iron that is now a staple in our salons.  So we wait, hold our breath for the next big thing!  This blogger is in close touch with our salon attendees and will be posting updates- so be sure to keep an eye out!

3 Things Your Stylist Wishes You Knew

3 Things Your Stylist Wishes You Knew

A visit to the salon is a time to relax and enjoy yourself while being pampered.  You should feel completely relaxed and confident that your stylist is on the same page as you.  So here are some things that stylists wish that their guests knew and kept in mind.  You being radiant and in love with your look is both of our goals.  So by strengthening our communication, we are bound to hit this out of the park!

1- You have an existing appointment scheduled and life happens.  Please give a quick call to let me know.  So, maybe your scheduled for a haircut and you saw some amazing face-framing honey highlights on a primetime actress last night.  Now you are thinking you really want some honey sparkle to your own hair.  Let me know! We can work it out.  Down for cut and color but thinking of letting your hair grow and opt for a conditioning treatment instead.  Let me know! Maybe now another guest can get her honey sparkles. Wither you can’t make it, running late, want to come earlier, want to add a service or take one off- let me know.  Making sure we have you scheduled for the correct service insures more people can get the salon treatment, and that means good hair karma.

2- You got your hair done…. and… its ok, but you don’t love it.  That’s okay! Let me know.  There is always something we can do.  Please don’t walk around not liking your hair.  And it is always better to go back to the salon where the service was done.  That way we know exactly what is on your hair and fix the issue the healthiest way for your hair.  At Salon Disegno we have a two-week policy.  Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions or comments.  You and your stylist are on the same team and want the same goal.  If the situation occurs, do not fret!  We will make it right

3-  We promote and sell hair careen that we truly believe in.  To preserve the quality of your color and style products are a MUST.  When you purchase them from me, you are supporting my goals and funding my education.  I also have a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Imagine.  It’s a special day in your life. People are happy and showering you with gifts.  Then you see it.  The perfect little light blue box, with the white ribbon.  Maybe your heart beats a little faster; maybe your smile gets little broader.  You have no idea whats in the box, but you know that it’s good, actually great.

Tiffany and Co. has set a standard in excellence and quality that has become a well-known part of popular culture.  Founded in 1837, Tiffany’s has proved a powerful and lasting brand world-wide. Unless you have been living under a rock, you most likely know that Tiffany’s jewelry and gifts always come in the iconic blue box.  This is a gift every girl or woman would love to receive. Why? Because you know that it is classic, long-lasting, and will be the envy of all your friends.

FOR RPA - ILLUSTRATION FOR EARNINGS

Tiffany’s has set a standard in customer service.  They stand behind their products, so if any problems occur with your purchase (or gift) they will make it right.  Diamond and jewelry have a full lifetime warranty. So when you invest in a piece for your collection, you can rest assure it will last.  Tiffany and Co. also prides themselves on the fact that all materials used in their products are traceable, to ensure they meet environmental and social standards.  So you can feel good in more ways than one about your purchase.

Ok. So I bet you’re wondering why you’re getting this little history lesson on Tiffany & Co.  Well, here at Salon Disegno we celebrate our stylists accomplishments.  On their first anniversary, a stylist receives a Tiffany’s heart pendant with the year engraved of when they joined our salon family. On the third anniversary, a stylist receives the coveted Tiffany’s heart pendant (also engraved) on a round link bracelet. We also honor the 5, 8, and 10 year anniversaries.

Salon Disegno prides itself on having a quality product, helping our community, and standing behind our work. This is why Tiffany’s jewelry is a perfect fit for our company!
