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’s Favorite Nail Colors You Can Wear Year-Round

By | Manicures and Pedicures | No Comments

Nothing is better than a day of pampering with a good manicure. That is unless it’s a mani-pedi! When your hands are well cared for, they can be more youthful in appearance along with a multitude of other benefits. However, it seems that nail polish or color seems almost seasonal, limiting you to the choices you can make when your manicurist tells you to “pick out a color.”  In this week’s blog, we point out some of our favorite Salon Sora nail colors that won’t restrict you during any month! Ready, rev up your nail file and let’s go!

Pale shades of pink, beige and blue are super beautiful no matter what day it is. The shiny finishes can help to elongate the fingers and make them look slender. Think of clean and pure when selecting your favorite pastel shade. Be sure to complete the matte colors with a beautiful top coat for extra luster.

Next, let’s consider glitter. Whether you’re placing a coating of glitter as an accent to the tip or cuticle of the nail or you’re going for a cover-all effect, glitter is one of the hottest decorations that will enhance any manicure. The best part is, there’s no limit to how many times per year you can coat your nails with this sparkly finish! We just love the bling at Salon Sora!

Monochromatic shades of gray, black and white have no limitations for showing off your ring fingers. Try a lighter gray or pure white for spring and summer and then switch to the alluring and sexy black colors for fall and winter. One thing you can be sure of is your hands will stick out no matter what shade you choose and these colors all look perfect for people who like to keep their nails short and squared.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a real switch from conservative to totally out there. That’s okay, and we love the wild just like the rest of you. Some ultra-chic colors to consider if you’re a bit ferocious is the perfect shade of blue. Ever since this color hit fashion magazines everywhere, you can see people scrambling to grab their favorite shade to match their style and mood. Even superstar, Jennifer Lopez has her select colors of jade, turquoise, and the Caribbean. When you live in a place like Boca Raton, these colors never go out of style. Love it!

As you know, there’s a rainbow of colors to choose from out there. These are just a few that we love that are the standard go to’s when you can’t decide. If all else fails, ask your amazing manicurist!

Highlight Finishes You Just Must Have – A Salon Sora Cosmetic Recommendation

By | Makeup | No Comments

When it comes to cosmetics and make-up living in a place like Boca Raton, you must remember to select the right foundation and finishes. In fact, with the hot, humid weather if you use the wrong base the rest of your makeup will not stay put or even stay on your face. In this blog, we reveal some of the best highlighters to use for your skin tone and the type of look you want to make you look healthy and not ruddy up your finish. Grab your powder brush and let’s go!

Since we’re talking about highlighters and not foundation, let’s just say, when your skin is tan, you don’t want to cover that up. You want to give the illusion that your skin is shining and healthy with the same glow you see actresses like Jennifer Lawrence sporting around. If you pick a highlighter that’s too light, it might make you look ghostly or ghastly either way you want to look at it. So, here’s what we recommend:

  1. Use a great concealer and substitute in places where you typically use foundation.
  2. Select bronzers that match your skin tone.
  3. Use your highlighters sparingly and don’t be afraid to use different shades in diverse places.
  4. Strategize your look with the right colors.

If you ask Kylie Jenner or Kim Kardashian, they will probably tell you they pioneered the “concealer rules” rule. This is the foundation that you will use generously on the face to give a base. Say bye-bye to using foundations of any sort. When you apply, the concealer get a good one, and two of the best would be Boo-Boo Concealer and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. The concealer needs to be implemented in the following places:

Under eyes and in a ‘V’ shape below the dark circles, between the brows and on the ball of the chin. If you have any other blemishes, cover them too. The Wonder Pencil by NYX is incredible for covering flaws and should be in every person’s makeup kit.

Once you’ve covered your dark circles and other discolorations, it’s time to highlight.

Technically you’re going to be contouring the facial features by using your darkest highlighter under the cheekbones, neck, chin and temples. After you’ve done this the next technique is to use your lightest highlighter on the top of the cheek bone, bridge of the nose, the center of the forehead and on the ball of your chin. We love the NAKED collections by Urban Decay as well as the Milk Makeup sticks. If you have a nice warm tan, try the Holographic Stick that can be worn on any part of the face and leaves a gorgeous lavender tone.

By learning to use your highlighter with ease, you’ll soon be kissing your foundation’s good bye once and for all. Keep in mind; you can always book a session with our make-up artists to give you a hands-on lesson.

Hope you enjoyed this week’s blog, keep watching for more amazing tips from the Best Salon in Boca Raton! Salon Sora Loves YOU!

5 Tips for Hair Nutrition Found in Your Grocery Store

By | Hair Care | No Comments

If you’re looking to have healthy hair, there are a lot of things you can do to create nutrients with products you can get right from your local grocer. While some people may still use things like beer and eggs to make hair stronger there’s some other products you may not have thought to use. In this week’s blog we share a few of Salon Sora’s tips that might help you.

  • Coconut Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Lemon Juice
  • Fenugreek Seeds
  • Banana

It seems that coconut oil is great for a multitude of uses including a hair remedy.  We suggest using this incredible product as a hair strengthening conditioner. The Salon Sora recipe treats dry scalp and psoriasis giving the hair follicles a chance to hold in the moisture from the natural product. Try it yourself by mixing a cup of coconut oil with enough hot water to melt it down. Apply to the hair and leave on for up to 30 minutes. Then rinse completely. You’ll notice a difference almost immediately and your hair will love it.

Castor oil is yet another excellent substance found right at the supermarket. This is a great cure to rid dandruff and can also help with psoriasis. Seborrheic Dermatitis patients can also benefit and prevent the infection from spreading. Jamaican Black Caster Oil is an excellent product and you can buy from AMAZON. For severe cases or if the scalp gets worse, contact your doctor right away.

Lemon Juice is an incredible fruit with its amounts of B2 complex and vitamin C attributes. Lemon juice can be used as a hair lighter for blondes and red heads. But, it’s ideal for oily hair when mixed with egg white. Let us know how it works out for you.

When mixed with water, Fenugreek seeds can add shine and make hair appear sleek and soft. It’s also an excellent solution for treating eczema.

Stay away from high sugar and preservatives that can take a toll on your hair, scalp and skin. Remember to use a good shampoo and conditioner twice a week, unless you sweat a lot or work out regularly.

A mashed banana is yet another super food ideal for those wanting to rid a bad case of the frizzies. Next time those favorite fruits are starting to get ripe and brown, mash them with a fork and leave on hair for 15 minutes. You’ll be impressed with the smooth look,

These are just a couple home solutions you can try out, let us know how these tips work out

New Year’s Eve Manicure’s Salon Sora Style

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

boca raton nail salonsThis year you can bedazzle any one of your colleagues or family members when you give out their presents with a sexy-chic manicure that’s sure to make an impression. We’ve got just the colors and styles right at your fingertips. No pun intended. Get your cell phone ready because after reading this blog you’ll want to make an appointment! Ready? Go!

While we’ve seen the hot look of a chrome wrapped car, this 2017 you can rock out with chrome plated nails. Ask you, manicurist, to see a variety of shades from dark gun metal to gold foil. These colors are ultra-sexy and are ready to click the champagne glasses right along with you.

Unwrapping gifts can be super embarrassing when your nails are on the fritz! Try out a short style with well-manicured and groomed cuticles to match. There’s nothing worse than taking a beautiful photo with your nail bed and cuticle looking like it’s ready to star in Halloween. Don’t hide your hands, be proud of them with a professional ‘mani.’

Depending on your work schedule if you’re able to sport the longer nails then try a new shape such as coffin or stiletto to pump up your style. Another shape that’s sweet is the tapered square which is much like the coffin only it’s wider at the ends.

Don’t be afraid to get trendy with the glitter and transition techniques. We’ve seen so many variations of this from one nail painted to half and half or just glitter tips. A super smoking look is using flat paint finishes with glitter accents on one or many nails. Shiny and matte are the latest trends in the nail world.

It’s cute when people can pull it off, but a decal or two for the holidays is nail art. Think snowflakes (even if you live in Boca) bows, bling, sparkle and candy canes to liven up any paint job out there. Salon Sora knows you’ve got character, now let’s see you use it!

From your head to your toes we want you to be the princess at the ball. Keep in mind 90% is you attitude the rest you can leave to us for making you look stunning before the ball drops. Ask you manicurist for the look that’s right for you.

Let Me Be Blunt, Blonde, and Bob with You in January 2017

By | Hair Color, Hair Styles | No Comments

blondIt seems that almost any of the hair stylists we’ve spoken with are all leaning toward three dazzling looks for January 2017. Blunt, Blonde, and Bobbed hair is sweeping fashion magazines globally, and while these are not for everyone, they can certainly freshen up your New Year with a whole new way to be daring. Here are the reasons why.

Let’s talk about blunt bangs and cuts. If you’re not ready for a long-term commitment such as taking your long locks and going rogue with a pixie cut, then we’ve got just the solution. Try out a Salon Sora Blunt Bang or Blunt cut that allows you to have a slightly different look but allows you to keep some length which is a much easier transition than going from long to short. A word of caution for blunt bangs. These will grow out, but not everyone likes them. Consult with your stylist for the best solution and ask for their honest opinion. Your stylist wants you to be happy long after you leave the salon so they can assist you in finding just the right cut, color, etc., that you can manage and maintain.

Now that we’ve covered the bluntness let’s talk about the blondness. Today’s blonde isn’t just about bleached hair. There are several different shades of blonde from golden blondes to platinum and every hue or tone in between. While not everyone can pull off a blonde color, most can with the right shades and highlights. Let your new year be met with stunning highlights that frame the face. Or you can pop some champagne while discussing your decision to go silver and purple. Don’t be afraid of becoming a blonde bombshell; we hear its quite fun and a super alluring color for one seven!

What about Bob? Not the movie, the hair style!! Bobs are never out, there are just a few modifications to wearing them. The lob is seemingly phasing out with more of an even cut all away around. No longer layers draping down the front with a shorter back. The year 2017 is bringing in more balance with the styles that are seen on the runway and in magazines such as Elle.

No matter what the look is you’re trying to achieve our stylists are here to help. We’ve got just the right shade, cut, and design that you’ll love all year round.

Give us a call to book your next appointment. Salon Sora hugs for you!

Holiday Nails by Salon Sora for 2016

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

This year if you’re looking to be sexy from your head down to your toes, Salon Sora can help you put your finger on just the right seasonal polish and nail art that will help you go from super to super-sexy in 2.5 minutes! Let’s point to the obvious, shall we?Nail salon boca raton fl

First, let’s say clean and healthy nails are in style no matter what season it is. A French or American manicure never seems to be old-school. However, add something chic to your white tips like glitter or gold to accent the already super-girl handle.

Gold foil designs over shades of green and red can tip things off when it comes to nail art. Ask your manicurist what his/her favorite design is this year, and we’re sure they’ll give you a dynamite and decorative pattern that will keep your hands from being hidden inside your pocket.

Geometric patterns are not only contemporary, but they’re also very popular throughout the fashion magazines. Bring in the look if you find something you admire and we’ll see if we can’t copy it. Be sure to browse through Pinterest to get a different perspective.

When you live in a place such as Southern Florida, you’ll find it’s not appropriate table manners to have dirty, dingy nails. Try a new shade of blue or a pearly pink to brighten up your fingertips even when you’re not sporting a tan.

If you’re into cute, think about adding a few snowflakes or some contemporary lace designs. This type of nail art is perfect for both child and adult and are ideal for the 2016 to 2017 holidays.

Black and Gold is a hot commodity for classic nail techniques. We’ve seen a lot of faded techniques as well. More nail technicians are focusing on the half-moons and decorating the nail beds from the cuticle up to the tip. Although this is opposite of what is typically requested, it’s a unique way of showing off those sexy nails.

Trying something new is half the fun. Be sure to look for a design or technique that will match your holiday gowns or outfit. Our manicurists will be happy to suggest the look that right for the dress or wardrobe. The best part is when you hear the compliments on how pretty your hands are for this year’s big celebrations.
