Prom Hairstyles

Complimentary prom hairstyles and make-up, Win-Win!


Here’s an idea that might be of interest to hair salon owners and hairdressers looking for new ways to grow their business!


The owners of The House of Trends: A Hair & Make Up Studio, has come up with a novel way of servicing clients, staying on top of trends and bringing more business through the door!


The salon located in Staten Island, Huguenot hosted its first free “Prom Night” expo. Going the extra mile and putting their hard work and effort into this free event, will no doubt pay off with new clients not only for the ‘real’ prom night, but also for the long run.


“Prom Hairstyles Salon Promotion”


Michelle Rodriguez and her sister Jessica Uriarte have owned the full service, Staten Island hair salon for about 3 years and their business has grown from 6 to 13 chairs during that time.


This year they decided to host a free ‘Prom Night’ where teens actually got to test out prom hairstyles and makeup ideas before the big event!


Clients usually bring in pictures of celebrities or models wearing the looks they want and the hairdressers, in order to recreate these looks, need to keep up with these trends. “A lot of clients have used us for their Sweet 16s and their prom hairstyles, but they’re in college now,” said Michelle. “This gives us the opportunity to reach out to a new generation of clients and give them an idea of what we can do for them.”


To get the word out Michelle and Jessica contacted prom committees from area high schools and sent fliers advertising the “Prom Night” expo. They also sent out information via Facebook and their website. They quickly filled 70 spaces before needing to cut off appointments. All others were invited to come in, watch and ask any questions as the hairdressers worked on the girls.


Free prom hairstyles and make-up sounds like a win-win to me! Teens and hairdressers could consult and make a personal connection and they were shown what the salons $140.00 prom hairstyles and make-up package included as well as being able to view some prom dresses from a neighboring Bridal Shop!

Stretching Between Hair Color Touch Up

Stretch the time between hair color touch up

Not many women today can spend half a day in the salon every four weeks. Even if you have the cash, chances are you don’t have the time. To stretch visits between hair color touch up to every six or even eight weeks, ask for diffused high lights—with or without a slightly darker or lighter base color.
“Get More From Hair Color Touch Ups”
Diffused high lights only require retouches every six months. The key is to use three different colors from the same tonal family on each woven high light. The color will be different from roots to ends.

Say you want red high lights. To diffuse them, your hair colorist uses the darkest red at the roots, the next lightest one on the mid-shaft and the very lightest one at the ends. This creates incredible depth at the scalp, so the grow-out factor is minimized. The lighter ends look naturally sun-kissed, so you may not need to have the ends refreshed with the next visit. That’ll save you time in the salon, as well as money.
