The World of Facials

New to the World of Facials?

Are you new to facials? Have you been seeing all your favorite Instagrammers getting facials and you dream of being in their shoes? Solace can help you out! We’re going to go through four of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to facials.

Why facials are important?

You work out, try to eat as healthy as possible and get your haircut every 6-8 weeks. You should treat you skin the same way and get facials. As the seasons change, so does your skin. As temperatures rise, your skin can become oilier which can lead to breakouts. As the weather gets colder, skin can become dehydrated because of inside heating systems. Facials help to reduce oils and clear away any debris like sand or sunscreen that's left behind. Facials can also replenish the moisture lost from inside heat and being in a drier climate.

What are the benefits of getting facials?

There are many benefits to getting a facial. They lead to a smoother texture, improve moisture levels in the skin, give you a glowing complexion, clearer and firmer skin. The real key here to yield all the benefits of a facial is that you should get them on a regular basis. Like working out, the real results come from working out consistently.

How often should you get one?

Your routine for getting facials will depend on your skin type. The general rule is to get one once a month, if your budget allows it. If you have dry skin, it’s better to be more diligent during colder months. If you have oily skin, it’s more important to get facials during warmer months. Facials can prevent and/or solve problems for all skin types.

What do I need to know before I go?

While facials are relaxing, there are a couple uncomfortable moments that can happen during the process. Extractions occur when your esthetician deep cleans your pores. Estheticians have to use the right amount of pressure and angles for successful extractions that can cause discomfort. You also may experience redness following a facial. The good news is the redness should go away in about a day or two, so there’s no need to worry.

Now that you are well versed in facial knowledge, it’s time to finally get one. Solace offers facials for all concerns. Click here to learn more about which facial is best for you and make your appointment today!

Exciting Changes at Solace Salon and Spa this Month!

The Perfect Addition – Adair Style Studio 

We’ve been working on this exciting project behind the scenes for months now and we’re so excited to finally give you the news! Sydney from Adair Clothing Boutique and Raegan, Solace Salon & Spa owner, are partnering up to open a second Adair location inside Solace!

We all know the perfect outfit can really make or break your day, and that’s why we are so excited for the opportunity to expand Solace’s pampering services beyond hair, skincare, nails and massage! Raegan and Sydney worked together extensively to ensure that every item within this Adair location will be perfectly styled, sized and fitted for today’s business woman. You’ll find all of the usual Adair classics you love, plus a few more sophisticated pieces carefully considered by Raegan herself. We can’t wait to have the latest trends and classics hanging right inside our spa! Sydney’s clothes are pure style and quality – you’re sure to find something you’ll absolutely love at each visit!

A New and Improved Nail Experience

Along with the addition of Adair downstairs, our nail services are getting an upgrade! While we’ve always catered to our guests with our Southern Hospitality and charm, we are determined to make your nail experience even more enjoyable and tailored to your specific wishes! The nail room is moving to a more private area upstairs in order to elevate your nail experience at Solace. We want for guests to feel indulged in and able to unwind in a tranquil, serene space while being pampered with longer and more relaxing manicures and pedicures in our new space.

Look for more details about Adair’s Grand Opening and our new nail room in the upcoming weeks!

Fall 2015 Hair Trends

At Solace we love to try out all the trendy new looks! Take a look below for a few fun ideas to try out this fall!

Low Profile
Most pony tails are placed high on the head to either get hair out of the way or to pose like a 90s cheerleader. This fall, it seems that low ponies are making their debut, so say goodbye to the pony tail crimps as low, loose ponies are welcomed in this season.

Pick a Side
Despite the middle part coming back into style the past few years, side parts are the new trend this fall. The deeper, more dramatic the side part the better. Seeing more hair is on one side than the other, you’re guaranteed instant volume. To add definition, let the extra hair fall forward across the face.

Don’t worry about perfecting this side updo. It’s meant to be a little messy. Working from the left, sweep the hair across the back of your head up off your nape and over to the right so that you have a very rough diagonal part. Wrap the hair with an elastic as though you’re going to make a ponytail, but don’t pull the ends all the way through. Voila! Your messy twist is complete.

Sounds like Bohemian Waves will be in every season. Who doesn’t love the beach wave? Using some sort of texturing product, you can scrunch your hair (for curly hair) or curl it with a big barrel iron (for straight hair). Either way, this hairstyle will make your miss summer this fall!

No, mullets are not back in! The half up, half down styles are a big hit this fall though. Whether it’s a half braid, half ponytail, or any variation of the two, you will look great.

Leggings, PSLs and skyscraper buns will be in your near future! This easy hairstyle involves minimal effort with sleek results. For someone who wants more structure than just a messy bun, this “fun bun” will provide just enough sophistication.

Be bold with bangs! The short hairstyle is cut to sit at the jaw-line in a solid line with the bangs jagged cut to fall naturally on the face to soften the whole boyish hairstyle. The trendy layered hairstyle is excellent for people with naturally straight hair and is suitable for people from nearly all ages.
Hair Painting / Balayage
Foils are so last season! The new rage this fall is balayage, the perfect way to obtain sun-kissed highlights. Balayage refers to the process of sweeping color onto hair using a paddle, which gives the colorist more freedom to place color where she chooses, unlike foils which can be much more precise. 

Give us a call today at 704.795.7627 to set up an appointment for some sleek bangs, hair painting or for a fresh, new cut or color to make these fall trends really pop!
