Airbrush Tanning Benefits

Tuesday, December 20th, 2011

  Everyone loves a beautiful tan, no matter the season. What we don’t love, the awful damage that UV rays do to our skin. Need a solution?! Airbrush tanning is the easiest and safest way to get a healthy and sexy tan. With no sun required this is the best alternative for your skin to remain healthy but still have a sun kissed glow.

This is a great option for a last minute wedding, work function, or for everyday wear! Generally lasting up to 10 days with the right care, you can have the sun kissed look all week long! This is also a popular service for guests going on vacations that tend to get sun burned easily. The tanning solution is derived from sugar beets and contains the main ingredient DHA. It is an FDA approved solution, this is a smart and effortlessly way to brighten your skin.

What’s the number one trick for keeping your tan lasting long and looking fresh? MOISTURIZER!  Making sure your skin is exfoliated really well before you head in for your airbrush tan is key. You also need to limit physical activity for a recommended 12 to 24 hours after. This ensures that you get the full benefits from your tan and maximum results will show. After that it’s just moisturizing in the morning and at night. Keeping the skin hydrated in the winter especially is important when prolonging your tan.

We’ve all heard of or used the bulky machines that do the spray tan for you, right? But we all know that they can’t get in the nooks and crannies of our bodies. Our esthetician is specially trained to give you the best looking airbrush tan you’ve ever had! With having a hand held airbrush machine, she is able to cover every area of the body and avoid any streaking or missed areas that can occur with the machine tanning.

Hair Extensions at Capricio Salon & Spa

Are you bored of your current hair style and want to change it immediately? Hair extensions can add instant length volume, thickness or highlights to your hair in just a few hours. They can be attached to your natural hair using many different methods available today. For example, there is bonding, cold and warm fusion, sew-in, braid-in, heat-sealed in and even clipped in. The hair that is used can be synthetic or human and varies in price and quality. The method of attachment often times dictates the type of hair that will be used.

Hair extensions can be a little pricey, especially if you are going for quality. You definitely get what you pay for with hair extensions, as they are not cheap. Many stylists receive special training from various hair extension companies and become certified to perform specific methods of attachment. Hair extensions are not a one size fits all, and some methods may not be suitable for certain hair textures and conditions.

Here is a list of the TOP FIVE reasons that women and men get hair extensions added to their natural hair.

1. Add INSTANT length, volume or thickness to their hair. They have always wanted long hair or thicker hair and for whatever reason have never been able to grow their own hair out.

2. Cover up a really bad haircut. So, you got a really short shag hair style and you absolutely hate it? Solution: Hair Extensions

3. Add bold or subtle highlights to your hair without chemical processing.

4. Get a new look for a special occasion, i.e. wedding, prom, formal even.

5. Just for fun!!!! Some people like to experiment with their hair styles. Hair extensions offer an instant new look.

In short, Hair Extensions can be a fun and exciting way to add length, volume and highlights to your natural hair. It is important to do your research on hair extensions by finding out about the different methods available, finding a qualified stylist and maintaining the hair extensions once they are in.

Capricio Salon and Spa Wedding Packages

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

Capricio Salon & Spa has the perfect wedding packages catered to you and your wedding party.  A wedding is a special day that you will remember forever. You will share your photographs from that day with family and friends, and they will remain a precious keepsake.
Choosing a beautiful wedding gown is important, but looking beautiful on your special day is even more important. Getting the perfect hair style, brow shaping & airbrush tanning make-up to go with your wedding gown is a must.   Achieve the image you’ve always dreamed of, let Capricio Salon & Spa bring out your inner beauty! Capricio Salon & Spa will make every bride look amazing on her special day.
Our bridal service begins with a thorough consultation, discussing with you all of your ideas, thoughts and aspects of your wedding. We recommend this visit should be at least six months before the wedding day. We will also discuss whether you have any ideas of wearing any accessories such as tiaras, a veil, flowers or barrette. Whenever we use flowers in a bridal design you can be sure they are real and bursting with vibrant colors.
To achieve your desired look, you may require other services ahead of your big day. This may include extensions, airbrush tanning or color and cut. In these instances, we can draw up a pre-wedding hair plan to ensure your hair is healthy, glossy and vibrant in plenty of time for your wedding.
It is always a good idea to try out the style you have chosen ahead of the big day. This will last between one and three hours depending on whether you wish the bridesmaids to be involved.
It’s beneficial to have a trial run, as it instantly removes one of the biggest causes of stress on your wedding day. Additional trial runs can also be arranged if you wish.

We would be more than happy to come to your home, hotel, or venue of your choice if you prefer to have your hair styled outside of the salon.  You will awake on your special day knowing that you are already destined to look your best. Just sit back, relax and let us make your hair & makeup beautiful for your wedding.
