LookWow™ Combines Ancient Remedies for Hair Serum

shine of the hair without weighing the hair down. The answer appears to have come from Aqua Hair Extensions in the form of their new
LookWow™ Argan Hair Serum.
The serum combines organic Argan oil with organic Rice Bran oil to create a synergistic blend in a

round green fruit that delivers an oil rich in vitamin E, and essential fatty acids. The primary hair benefit is in nourishing and

essential fatty acids, and high heat resistance, along with high levels of vitamin E.

Glasgow Salon Introduces 3D Colour
Glasgow, Scotland, UK - girlznight, a Glascow hair and beauty salon, aims to change the salon industry by introducing
a new concept in hair color. Their 3D Colour more effectively mimics the natural color variance of the hair, utilizing up to 9 shades
of color. This creates an individually tailored colour experience for each client. Preplanning ensures that the majority of the 3D
Colour appointments are under 2 hours.
The salon’s creative director, Karen McDougall explains the concept behind girlznight as a desire
to restore faith in the salon industry by bringing back key values in client care and professionalism. Says McDougall, “Every aspect
of our service is aimed at protecting our clients and ensuring they have an enjoyable, stress-free visit to the salon and leave with
the wow factor every time.”
The key to girlznight’s service is a preplanned 3D Colour plan, based on a 10-minute personal
consultation prior to the actual appointment. “This consultation involves a series of questions avout style and color choices, skin
testing for allergies and collecting strands of hair for test samples. Between the consultation and the appointment, the salon tests
the color on these strands and allows the client to see the results prior to committing to the final colour process.”
This sounds simple, but patch testing (for allergic reaction) and strand testing (to ensure the
hair’s ability to withstand the chemical) is no longer common practice among many salons. According to McDougall, “Legally, all
salons are required to skin test for allergies at least 48 hours prior to using color on the scalp. Sadly, the majority are ignoring
this requirement and risking the well-being of their clients.”
Aside from the pre-appointment consultations, girlznight offers another unusual facet in their
salon experience: dedicated appointments. The salon’s dedicated appointment system ensures that a stylist will attend only one client
at a time. This allows the client to know that she has her stylist’s undivided attention. “We want everyone who walks through our
door to feel that they have received the best possible service and advice from our experienced professionals, and to leave the
salon not only looking, but feeling fantastic,” says McDougall.
