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!!!

new hair products at domani….

we love the day our delivery driver brings us boxes full of new styling products, it’s like Christmas to a hairdresser!

Alterna Bamboo 2-in-1 volumizer:

this is one of the most AMAZING products we’ve had our hands on in a long time!

Bamboo 2-in-1 is almost like Alterna took Caviar Volume Creme and mixed it with Bamboo Brilliance Cream.  Volume creme is a clay based product that you use at your scalp for more volume when you blow dry.  Because it’s clay based, it can easily be overused on the ends of hair.  Brilliance cream is a smoothing, shine enhancing product that you can use both wet and/or dry.  It doesn’t have much hold at all to it.

So taking a clay based product w/ lots of volume and a smoothing product with no hold to it…. mix them together and it gives you BAMBOO 2in1….

you can use bamboo 2in1 both in wet and dry hair.  when using it in wet hair, it will give your style hold and shape.  when using it in dry hair, it will give your style texture and definition.

Unite Texturiza spray:

does your hair usually style better for you on day 2 or 3?  Is your hair often too soft after you just shampoo it?  or doesn’t hold a style well when it’s clean?  we know, that sounds like our hair!  Unite texturiza spray is a great product to give you that second day feeling WITHOUT making your hair DIRTY!

again, it’s almost like Unite took Expanda dust and Dry shampoo and made one product.  Expanda dust is AMAZING for adding volume and texture at your scalp, but can QUICKLY become too tacky when you put it in the ends of your hair.  So, by adding the dry shampoo portion of this product, it makes it spray-able… movable… and PERFECT!

are you wearing the right haircut for your face shape?

who knew face shape had anything to do with their haircut or style?!?

People often look at a picture of a celebrity in a magazine and tell me, “I want to look like her!” Well, wouldn’t we all? I think it is important to not only study the style and what a client really wants, but also to take note of a persons face shape and structure. Choosing the right style for your face can help to enhance or take away from strong facial features.

 

Round face shape
– asymmetrical
– imprecision
– piecy layers
– pixie, helps define the cheek bones
– angled bob with long layers, hard lines help soften the round shape
– add body at the roots but avoid too much on the sides (widens the face)

round face shape, haircut, salon, bob, style

Oval face shape
– straight bangs above the brow line can create the illusion of width
– on shoulder length or longer, a center part with soft waves
– bob with side bangs
– avoid long styles, add waves to widen the face
– try not to wear it longer than shoulder length

Square face shape
– chin length soft tapered bob
– style hair with waves from the ears down
– wearing your hair straight and long takes the attention off of a strong jaw line

Heart face shape
– hair that hits right below the jaw line helps fill in the area around the chin
– also add body to disperse lines around the chin
– wear a deep side part and side swept bangs. (idea is to bring your eyes outward)
– a soft pixie cut with side swept bangs

Diamond Face Shape
– wear hair away from your face (pony or an updo)
– avoid heavy or straight bangs, try a side bang
– lots of layers help keep the diamond face shape open

So, like I said before: choosing the right style for your face can help to enhance or take away from strong facial features. Ask your stylist next time you’re in what they think your face shape is. Or ask them if you’re wearing the right style to best feature your face shape. Don’t forget, that’s what we’re here for…. To make you look your best!
