why you pay for experience

why education is so important in our industry… and why we have different tiered pricing at domani.

You see,  just an everyday short haircut and style is different than the MORE MODERN SHORT HAIRCUT and styles. There are more expectations with the new styles as far as versatility & texture.  After the haircut, the stylist should be able to show you many different ways in which you can style your new cut. Some will be fun, new and energetic and others will be more conservative and natural. This will allow the guest to be able to wear their hair to fit the occasion.

♥ All hair cutting takes training.

♥ All good haircuts need great training.

However, we feel at domani that short, modern haircuts need great training and years of experience.

 

We feel this way because in order to have your hair move in the directions that the style requires the hair must be cut and texturized in a way that only experienced stylist can provide.

At domani we are so fortunate to have hairstylists of all experience levels, ranging from: fresh out of beauty school, going through our domani training program to stylists with over 30 years of experience.  As we stated above… sometimes those short, textured haircuts require experience and lots of training!!!

dermaplaning now at domani!!!

Dermaplaning, also known as leveling the skin or simply blading, is performed to manually exfoliate the skin and involves the use of a sterile surgical blade, known as a dermatome. The dermatome is held against taut skin at a 45-degree angle and stroked in a manner similar to shaving. This method removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth and supple. Dermaplaning is usually only performed on the face and generally excludes any blading of the nose, eyelids, neck, and chest. Furthermore, it is recommended that the procedure be done every 2 to 4 weeks, which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days. Along with sloughing away dead skin cells, dermaplaning can help reduce the visibility of acne scarring and slight wrinkling, as well as remove vellous (translucent) hairs on the face, commonly known as ‘peach fuzz’. Domani salon and spa offers dermaplaning by a licensed aesthetician for our guests!

dermaplaning, facials, beautiful skin

  • WHO IS IT FOR?

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.

This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.

  • WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.

First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile 10 gauge blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

 

  • HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

About 30 minutes

  • ARE THERE IMMEDIATE SIDE EFFECTS?

There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.

  • WHAT ARE ANTICIPATED RESULTS?

You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.

  • RECOMMENDED COURSE FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS?

Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.

$59 45 minute service

tired of outgrowth?!?!?

Are you sick of having noticeable outgrowth between color appointments?  We highly recommend seeing your stylist every 4-6 weeks, but some of us…. just have outgrowth faster than that.  And you shouldn’t have to worry whether your hair looks great or not……..

Here is a solution for you & it’s now available at domani.  Stop in and get color matched or ask your stylist before they apply your color next visit!grey roots, root touch up, wow, hair color

 

HOW TO APPLY

We recommend using the smaller end of the brush for precision

Apply to dry/styled hair.

To cover roots, start with a small amount of powder. Use free hand to pull hair taut at the root. Dab on visible ]roots, starting from the scalp and working outward. Repeat as necessary until roots disappear and color looks like new.

To extend highlights, use the side edge of the small end of the brush. Use free hand to pull hair taut at the root. Wherever highlights have grown out, apply blonde powder joining it to the existing highlight.

Note: Let it set for a minute and then you can brush. If you put too much on…just blow off with a hair dryer or use the wide end of brush to dust off.

better brows…

do you often wish you had better eyebrows?  do you often wish your eyes would pop more?

at domani we often tell guests that one of the most important pieces of doing your makeup is filling in your brows (and lips, always lips)!!!

you have a couple different options:  using pencils, gels, eye shadows, tinting or coloring them, or tattooing them.

Here are your options:

we either use pencils, eye shadows or often just simply tint them with eyebrow color.  This is a really quick, inexpensive service that you can do each time you get your haircut, colored or even just make an appointment just for your brows.

we always recommend to a guest, let us use shadow and show you how amazing your face and eyes light up when filling in your brows.  once you get comfortable with that, lets TINT your brows just once.  if you don’t love it (which you will), then go back to filling in with a shadow.  But it does save time each morning & you can swim, sweat, whatever without worrying about your brows!

current pricing is as follows:

brow wax: $16

brow tint: $15

brow wax & tint together: $25

so, for just $9 more, add a brow tint to your next wax and wait to be amazed!

frequently asked questions: keratin hair extensions

frequently asked questions for hair extensions

How long do they last?

With regular maintenance, the life of your Hair Extensions is up to you. Most people can go up to three to four months before needing any service on their Hair Extensions.

Will it damage my natural hair?

We use the safest extensions available today. Extensions should not damage your hair if properly cared for and maintained. You must be careful brushing. If you have a tangle, hold the hair while you brush it especially if your hair is fragile. A full assessment of the hair and scalp will be done at the consultation to determine if you are a candidate for Hair Extensions. You will be well educated on how to properly take care of the hair and Hair Extension to make sure there is no breakage. As long as you stay in a healthy state (meaning no illness occurs after the Hair Extensions are applied or any new medications have to be taken). The pre-tipped hair makes it so simple to apply and the bond is made of a keratin the same make up as human hair protein so there is no wax or glue. There is no damage to the hair, they are virtually undetectable and easy to maintain.

All of these things should be taken into consideration when Hair Extensions application is considered.

Will the hair match my color and texture?

Absolutely! Your specialist will match your color and texture perfectly. Custom blending is our specialty!

What types of Hair Extensions do you offer?

So Cap Fusion Extensions. You can have straight, curly, and wavy hair. Your extension hair can be as short as bangs and to up to 36 inches in length.

How do I care for my hair?

You can wash as often as you wash your hair now. Special care is to be taken at the scalp, gently scrub your scalp to avoid tangling the extensions. Never go to bed with wet hair. If your extensions are long it is best to loosely braid the hair at night and use a silk pillow case. Brush your hair at least every morning and before you go to bed. Be sure to use the products recommended by your cosmetologist.

Can I curl or straighten these extensions?

These extensions are 100% human hair so you are welcome to curl and straighten, but keep heat away from the bonds.

Can I color these extensions?

The extensions should be the correct color you need when we put them in. If however you want a new color, make an appointment with the person who put in your extensions. Most hair can be colored.

Can I swim and go in the ocean?

It is recommended to keep your hair out of chemical and salt water. Also keep away from wet and dry saunas, excessive heat can loosen the bonds. If you must go in swimming pools and hot tubs, it is best to wash hair right after swimming. Avoid getting hair in chlorine & salt water as it can take all the moisture out of the hair and cause it to tangle. Add a spray in conditioner after swimming.

How long does my hair have to be in order to be considered a candidate for Hair Extensions?

Your hair should be at least 2 inches long. Schedule a consultation for an assessment.

How long does it take to apply the Hair Extensions?

1 to 5 hours depending on the length and thickness of your hair.

How much do Hair Extensions cost?

We need to know a number of things to determine the cost of your extension service. How long is your natural hair? What is your hair texture? How thick/thin is your natural hair? Are you looking to add length or just thickness?  Does your current hair color require that the extension hair be pre-blended?  Your Hair Extensions service could cost anywhere from $80 and above. We suggest that you come in for a consultation to learn about what your options are and the corresponding price to get you the look of your dreams.

 

If you have questions that were not addressed above, please contact us and we’ll be happy to provide the answers you need! (920) 262-8333
