Salon Sora’s 6 Essential Oils for Excellent Hair and Skin

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Go to any online magazine or pick one off the shelf and you’ll see many elixirs and concoctions claim to make you more youthful, beautiful and sexy. Well, as you know the professional staff at Salon Sora is dedicated to making the men and women of Boca Raton and South Florida more ravishing than they already are. So, we put together our six essential oils that are ‘must haves’ when it comes to healthy radiant skin and super-strong hair. Get ready to be whisked away by our expert advice! (at least read the blog).

  1. Our Mani-Pedi pros suggest using olive oil on your feet to keep them soft and supple. This substance is ideal to use after taking a dip in the pool or exfoliating with the sand at the beach. Love it!
  2. There are several organic products you can apply to the hair to help stimulate growth; we recommend using coconut oil, hibiscus oil. You can find these at most Farmer’s Markets and Walmart.
  3. If your skin is prone to acne, then Tea Tree oil will help to prevent skin from being over processed and undernourished. It’s not an outrageous fix either.
  4. If you’re having a tough time getting your nails to grow or work around harsh chemicals, like detergent and soap, try using Almond Oil to boost some moisture.
  5. A great detox formula for your skin is coconut oil. This ingredient is what we call a ‘wonder food’ as it’s perfect for all types of issues. No smell, just benefits.
  6. There are many products on the market that claim to promote eyelash growth. However, you could spend a ton of cash on these cures to find they don’t always work. Castor Oil is a fantastic product that can make a huge difference. Use mascara applicators to apply to your eyelashes before going to bed then wash off in the morning. You’ll be fluttered with super sexy lashes!

There you have it! The top-secret oils that can make your hair and skin radiant, glowing and just plain beautiful. If you have questions regarding any of our salon treatments for hair, skin or nails, please book your appointment today with the best salon in Boca Raton, Salon Sora.

Hugs from us all!

Salon Sora’s Guide to Washing Hair Extensions

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

We know many women around Boca Raton love to wear their hair extensions. Hair extensions made of human hair are by far the best type for anyone to sport in the heat of the South Florida sun. However, these get dirty just as your natural hair does and need to have proper care for them to last longer. Let’s face it, they are an investment that needs your attention, and we’ve got the answers for you right here.

If the extensions are made of human hair and not synthetics, then keep in mind, you can wash them with shampoo and conditioner, just as you would your hair. There are a few things you need to remember when cleaning that will help you keep them looking new.

  • Don’t wash them too often. Unlike your real hair, these can fall apart at the seams were sewed together. Wash them once every two weeks, and they should be okay. Unless, you use a lot of product such as hair spray, in which case once a week.
  • Don’t scrub or ball them up. They can become tangled and create a real mess causing hair breakage and damage. Gentle motion squeezing shampoo or conditioner is a better method.
  • Leave your conditioner on for up to 5 minutes to ensure the product is moisturizing. Since the hair isn’t a part of your hairs eco-system, natural oils can’t always get to the shaft of the extensions; you’ll need to condition them when shampooing to ensure their longevity.
  • Use wide tooth combs or brushes meant for wigs and extensions. Comb out while still wet and then hang to dry on a towel rack.
  • Air dry does NOT use a blow dryer as this can cause tangling.
  • Don’t use super oily products such as coconut oil or tea tree oil; this can only cause the wefts to become sticky and not flow like human hair.
  • If it’s a curly weft or wig, then be sure not to use alcohol-based products as this chemical will dry and frizz and no one wants that.
  • Use a silk scarf to wrap curly hair wigs and extensions while drying; this will help to keep the shape.

With a little TLC, your wigs and wefts will look incredible all the time. You’ll also be protecting your investment from going down the drain. Literally! Nonetheless, we hope this blog is helpful to you. If you’d like to hear more about a particular topic, drop us a line, we love thoughts, and suggestions.

Until next time, Salon Sora is sending out Big Hugs to you All!

Salon Sora’s Answer to the War Against Your Skin and Foundation

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Just step into the cosmetics aisle of any department or drug store, and you’ll find there’s just about as many different foundations as there are ways to apply it. Whether you’re new to using makeup or you’ve done so for years, applying foundation can sometimes seem like a war zone. You must have a strategy that will work once you’ve paired your skin tones with the right shade of foundation. In this week’s blog, Salon Sora will help you win the war against your foundation that will help your skin to look it’s best.

Old School, isn’t so old. After washing your face thoroughly and before applying your toner, use an ice cube to help minimize pores. This step is perfect before applying a primer and will help the products go on with a smoother finish.

Don’t go for the White Racoon Effect! Highlighters and Concealers are excellent tools for contouring the face. However, if they aren’t applied correctly, you could look like a raccoon with white eyes! As we learned from the Kardashians, concealers in different shades create a great base and show off bone structure avoiding unwanted ghostly looks.

Before applying mist the face and your brush with some mineral water. Once the water starts to dry, dab your primer on and blend well with a brush. Beauty blenders work well too. This method should allow you the maximum coverage with the most minimum work.

When you live in a place like South Florida, it’s important always to wear foundation with a good sunscreen. What many people don’t know is there are ingredients in sunscreen that can help moisturize but also prevent ‘crepey’ skin.  Another benefit that sunscreen has is its ability to hydrate dry eyelids. Apply sunscreen or opt for foundations with high SPF factors. This method will not only make your foundation look healthy but will also protect your skin from radicals and sun rays.

Depending on the weather once you’ve applied your foundation use a setting spray or face powder to finish. If it’s humid, we suggest a setting spray if it’s dry out or you’ll be indoors mostly, then powder is suitable. South Floridians should adjust according to the elements.

In closing, most of these methods are going to be a trial and error solution. Don’t worry; this is common amongst the civilian makeup artists everywhere. If you’re having a difficult time figuring out the most efficient ways to wear your foundation, spend a day with one of our cosmetics experts. They can teach you what will look best for your skin.

Does Shaving Your Face Make the Hair Grow Back Thicker?

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Salon Sora Has the Answer

While this topic may seem a bit awkward for some, those who have been born with naturally thick facial hair will find this helpful. Without a doubt, waxing is annoying and sometimes costly, pills are not going to stop the hair follicles on your face from growing and producing hair. However, much to your surprise things like eyebrow razors and regular shaves aren’t as bad as people may think. Here are some reasons why you don’t have to worry about face shaving.

Many women have had the graces of their family genes passed down to them. Whether it’s a large nose or facial hair went amiss, it’s still a part of what makes them who they are. In some cases, you can live with a bit of a mustache, but not most of the time. If your appearance is important to you, then it’s time to find a solution.

We’ve all heard that your face hair will grow back thicker and darker if you shave it off. Right? Wrong! This is a myth passed down by mothers and perhaps even fathers who didn’t want you to use their razors. LOL. Okay, we are just kidding about that part, but when it comes to your facial hair, shaving it off will not cause the hair to grow back thicker or darker.

The hair follicles and the shaft of the hair are not going to reproduce itself in other places. You were given the skin cells and hair roots at the time you were born. Shaving doesn’t cause a difference because you’re only removing hair from the surface and not at the hair bulb, veins or gland. When using a razor, you’re only cutting the hair shaft at the skin’s out layer. Therefore, you can’t make more hair bulbs, oil glands or hair follicles, thus making it impossible to change the thickness or amount of facial hair to grow back.

Next time someone gives you this advice, tell them the pros at Salon Sora knows. We hope you found this blog to be helpful.

Salon Sora Sombre Style for 2017

By | Hair Color, Hair Salon, Hair Styles | No Comments

flocolordone copy26Many of you have already heard of the term “Ombre” which is a transitional color trend, which swept the nation for 2016. For the New Year, you’ll hear the word “Sombre” which is taking the place of the big panels of lighter or darker colors for a more subtle and softer look. Salon Sora has just the right shade for you to keep you looking stunning even during the winter months of Southern Florida. Let’s take a closer look.

When you live in a place like Boca Raton you can expect two things. One, your tan may be faded since you might not be spending too much time in the sun and Two, you’re still supposed to look your best no matter what the season may be. To keep your face looking bright and cheerful, highlights are a sure-fire method to achieve this effect. With the Salon Sora Sombre approach, you’ll still have darker roots with highlighted ends that use a soft blend of both high and low lights. This effect gives a subtle transition between the colors and looks more natural.

The trick to the perfect transition is not to make it seem like the hair has been color treated at all. This hair style creates the illusion the hair has been gently kissed by the sun which makes it perfect for this time of year.

The best part about going Sombre is you can stick with any shade or tone that you’d like and still create the effect by using lighter shades. For instance, let’s say you’re a spicy ginger, with a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon tones. The colors we would use to highlight your hair would be soft golden blondes with strawberry to make the flat tones of the darker reds pop with a slight highlight.

With Sombre colors we don’t pull the hair through a cap or weave it in. This technique is typically done by painting the product directly onto the hair without using foils and such. Although each stylist has their way of achieving the same outcome, this is one of the most common.

With a little hair ingenuity, we can make your hair go from the darker shades of mmmm, boring to a bombshell that creates as a stunning statement to carry you all the way to spring time. Don’t forget to bring in photos of the shade you’re looking for and share them with your stylist. We love pictures and examples, and this will help us to pick the look that will complement the rest of your features such as skin tones and eye color. Until then, Hugs from all of us at Salon Sora!

Salon Sora’s New Year Styles for 2017

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

make up salon boca ratonWith the new year gaining quickly upon us, many people are scrambling to get their last-minute cuts and colors in to look fabulous before the dropping of the ball. In this week’s blog, we uncover some party styles for you to consider before booking your appointment with the best salon in Boca Raton. Three, two, one!

The Big Bushy Braid | Beachy Lobs  |  Spectacular Colors  |  The Chanel Platinum Manicure  |  Dark Lips & Cat Eyes

You can turn just about any magazine page today and find the big bushy braid as one super smoking hot style for this year’s newest hair styles. One thing you’ll notice is the many different styles of how to wear the big bushy braid. Of course, these hairstyles would work more for those with long hair. However, if you’ve got medium hair, that’s long enough you can add a few extensions made of human hair to enhance your look. Nonetheless, this is a romantic and alluring way to wear your hair that’s just right for the 2017 New Year.

Next, it’s off to chat about the beach lob. Rather than a Bob, that is tapered and cut and can coiffe them to just about any length; this is a cut that derives from longer styles and is lobbed off at the shoulders or nape with longer strands toward your face. What makes it beachy is the way you style it afterward. Soft waves work better with hair that is not freshly shampooed. If you haven’t used a dry shampoo, you might want to try one using this hair technique.

Today’s hair colors are more wild and vivid than they were let’s say ten years ago. Pinks, purples and now the neon dyes enhance your natural hair color and bring it to new heights. Silver or Platinum is an ultra-chic tint that brings a bit of mystery to any age. Ask your stylist to hook you up with just the right color for your skin tones.

The Chanel nail colors and manicures are dramatic and look stunning for both day and evening wear. Think metallic mixed with black, silver, and gray. We love the way these colors ‘POP’ when dressed in a little black dress or your office wardrobe.

Lastly, let’s talk about your makeup. This year the lip is dark and matte. Drop the lipgloss and pile on the lipliner in shades of deep cherry, burgundy, and plum. When you live in South Florida and sport a year-round tan, these shades of lipstick are complimentary. After you pile on the dark lips, use a cat-eye liner to top it off. You can find many ways to make the perfect cat eyes on places like YouTube and Pinterest.

With all these Salon Sora tips for your to consider and try out, you’ll be bringing in the New Year with a Big Bang!

Salon Sora’s Holiday Updos Lineup for 2016

By | Hair Salon, Hair Styles | No Comments

Whether you’re looking for a quick way to go from the office to the office party or the perfect style to wear to your family gatherings, the updo is one hair creation that never gets old. This year the trends seem to be soft and alluring braids, buns and bows and we’ve got the updo with Salon Sora spirt! Get ready to get your ends curled with this week’s blog!

Boca Raton Hair BraidingBows, barrettes, and bling! Bows in your hair can be both romantic and youthful. This year we see a lot of ponytails wrapped in big bows to dress up any black gown or pantsuit. If you’re looking to use barrettes, use hair jewelry with lots of gemstones and silver or gold to show off your sparkle. It appears that these techniques are capping off the style whether that be a ponytail or messy bun, these accouterments can add something unique to any cut.

Braids, braids, and more braids are sweeping the runways and magazine layouts. Try on a fishtail braid that’s loose with lots of sultry sprigs of hair flowing along your face. You can add twists to shorter cuts like bobs and lobs by adding a few hair extensions to your natural cut. Be sure to buy extensions made from human hair and match to your current hair color.

Speaking of color, neon dyes is grabbing attention both under the fluorescent lights. Be prepared to have everyone asking you where you got your hair done! Fiery reds, Electric Blues, and purples are what everyone is raving about for 2016 and most likely will carry past the New Year. Imagine how crazy beautiful your French twist will be once you add some of these ultra-funky and fresh colors that glow in the black lights.

Next, decide with your bun if you’re going to go low with a flow or up high on top of your head. Incorporate braids with buns and you’ve got a whole lot more fun. One theme is definitive across the board with any of these styles, and that’s fine flowing curls and waves. Be sure to make it the hair look fluid.

Bangs are always a nice way to change up any cut. With a chunky short bang that frames the face, you’re updo takes on a whole new design. Keep some sprigs pulled around the face to show off your eyes. Wispy pieces of hair also avoid the tightly coiffed locks from last year.

With a little ingenuity and imagination, you’re be turning your holiday glam into Salon Sora Glamour! Stay charming!

Reminder: Book your holiday appointments early

Gift Giving the Salon Sora Way

By | Hair Salon, Manicures and Pedicures | No Comments

holidayAs part of the tradition, gift giving during the holidays continues to be on the forefront of everyone’s mind. Not only is finding the right gift valuable, but the reason or message behind the gift is also equally essential. (that is if you want the person to continue speaking with you) We at Salon Sora believe this week’s blog will help those in search of foolproof gifts that will make you look like a skilled gift giver of sorts…. Read on!

Everyone likes to be pampered, and there’re no two ways around it. Finding gifts that make a person feel special should be your utopia. Whether you give someone a gift certificate for a soothing massage or a detoxifying facial, your directive should entail wrapping the gift with intricate packaging or use a surprise element like tying a gift card to the end of a bouquet of beautiful balloons. The point is not to hand a gift card to someone and think they’ll get the same experience. Go the extra mile with ribbons and bows, and they’ll cherish the memory forever.

Next, contemplate things you can do together, such as booking a mani-pedi. Ladies, don’t think your man will frown upon this terrific gift either. People are becoming more in-tune with their feminine side and having you next to them while the manicurist gives them a fantastic foot massage may just be the flame needed to light your fire. (Just saying).

Now you understand the element of surprise and pampering; we’ll talk about encouragement. Giving someone inspiration to do something that person has always dreamed of, not only encourages them but, maybe they didn’t have the courage says wonders about you. For instance, if your mom or sister has always wanted to cut her hair short but was afraid, why not book them an appointment with an experienced stylist to give them their makeover. Furthermore, encouraging someone to do something that will change their appearance, may also change their entire outlook on life.

If your spouse or significant other isn’t looking forward to the company party or a family event, give them an early gift of getting hair and makeup done before your event. Let them know it’s an early present because you want them to shine at your celebration. Not too many people will turn you down for that one, rest assured.

Lastly, it is equally important to give yourself a gift of self-appreciation. Treat yourself to any one of our services as a way of saying, “Good Job” whether that’s for planning another first work party or finishing your shopping early. Either way, the holidays are a time to show people around them how meaningful they are and we’ve got a clever souvenir that’s ideal for anyone on your list. Until then, best of luck during your quest for gift giving.

We’d like to remind everyone to book your appointments early. Happy Holidays!

Salon Sora’s Holiday Spin Makeup for 2016

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Makeup Salon Boca RatonAfter the Christian Dior had spread where they showed girls emphasizing their dark side, we thought it would be fun to give you our take on this ultra-mysterious but borderline natural style. Dramatic lipstick color, top-to-bottom big fluffy eyelashes, a well-defined brow and shiny skin are what you can expect. Here’s the Salon Sora’s Holiday spin on this beautiful makeover.

First, you’ve heard of the Vampy lip, right? Well, Salon Sora’s makeup artists will tell you “The Lady is a Vamp” in these alluring shades of plum, Bordeaux, and Merlot puckers. Be sure to line the lip carefully and for color that last ultra-long, color in lips with the pencil then go over with your preferred shade of lipstick. A beautiful look is to use a darker pencil on the outer edges then use a lighter shade in the bow and center of the bottom lip. This technique will make your lips look full and mysterious. These are the perfect shades for your holiday parties where you will be unforgettable.

Two things you’ll see staring right back at you are the dramatic eyelashes for this year’s celebrations. 1960’s model and entertainer, Twiggy made the fake eyelashes almost seem babyish. (we know it’s not a word). Ultra-thick black as black mascara and drawing with an eyelash pencil lashes. That’s right they’ve brought back the swinging 60’s with a Salon Sora flair. Faux eyelashes are a must with this eye makeup.

Skin that glows is the only way to pull this look off. Look for highlighter sticks and smear over the top of the cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and on the ball of your chin. This effect, of course, should be applied after a good concealer. If you’re naturally glowing after you’ve taken a selfie, you know you put the highlights in just the right place.

Can you say “Glitter”? Since this is focused on the holidays, think New Year’s Eve or about sitting next to your honey under the lit tree. Does your face sparkle? Look for eyeshadow, heavy induced by glitter then emphasize with a dark deep eyeliner and cap off with your falsies. Super sexy but wait! There’s more! Use a natural lip liner, plop a blob of concealer in the middle of the lower lip then top off with lip-gloss. This is a chick and elegant look just right for kissing under the mistletoe.

These are just a few of Salon Sora’s Fantastic MakeUp tips just right for this year’s holiday season.

For special events, have our makeup artists perfect your look. Contact us today!
