New look!

Sogno is known for makeovers. Ambush makeovers, Vugly hair makeovers contests, and makeovers for cancer patients. So when Aili asked us to be part of her new look we were very excited.   Aili  had grown her hair out for Wigs for Kids. Our favorite charity for children’s hair loss. For over 30 years, Wigs for Kids has been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns and other medical issues at no cost to children or their families. We hope you enjoy Aili’s new look.

Sogno Salon is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Sogno Salon is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. In the past we have done the cute little pink extensions and made a donation to this important cause. Having lost a dear friend and client to this terrible disease, pink hair strand was just not enough. We have been thinking about what we could do as a salon to be more involved. So when a young man called us to see if we could help his Mom with her hair who is in treatment right now we were inspired! We will donate our haircuts at no charge for women loosing their hair because of cancer treatments. We need your help to spread the word. Please share this on your Facebook. We want to help. -Nancy

Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.

The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

  • If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
  • If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.

Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.

 

 

Facebook for Business

I  love Facebook for Business. We get to share what’s going on in our community,  share our talented stylists work, share our travels, inform our clients on whats new, and support other businesses. However, I am a little disturbed this morning as I was reading the reviews about us. There are a few people out here that have gone onto our Facebook to give us one or two star reviews. When I looked them up in our client base they have never been to Sogno. I did notice they are fans of another salon. Hmmm?  Everyday I learn something new about business!  We recently hosted another salon owner who wanted to “Shadow” us for a day. We encourage more. We love to share! Wishing all Hairstylists great success! Thanks to all of our wonderful clients that have posted great reviews!!                                                            Nancy

Etiquette for a Haircut

Yes, there is good etiquette for a haircut. If as  a client you wish to receive the best haircut then let us explain how it works.  The first thing is of course communication. You may bring pictures. It is very helpful. A picture of yourself 20 years before? Remember you and your hair has probably changed. And do you really want to look like that again?

You had the best haircut you ever had in Paris, but why? It’s the why the haircut worked not where that you need to communicate. By the time you have expounded on your Paris hairstylist we know we are never going to make you happy. Could you just have been in love with Paris?

Keeps your hands out of your hair after the stylist starts cutting. Would you stick your hands in the middle of anyone else’s work.  Chef, nail technician, painter? It’s frustrating, it moves the sectioning making it difficult to cut and distracts your stylist. And it’s just darn rude! Keep your head straight and legs uncrossed. Your body position is very important.

If you are so worried that you have to be in control of each little snip you will NEVER get a great haircut. Go to a trusted stylist that has good references. Talk about your feelings, dreams and fears in the beginning. Then sit back and enjoy the time. Your  stylist wants only the best for you and probably can give you that Paris cut. If you put your hands in your lap.

I’m pushing my salon’s products because they’re better for your hair—not to make a few bucks.

Sogno Salon stocks products we believe in. We’ve tested, researched and met with the company. It’s frustrating for us to see a client pay good money for great color or a trendy cutbut then buy drugstore shampoo and conditioner to save a few bucks. We can tell you exactly what you need to maintain your hair—and save you from playing the drugstore guessing game. We  here to give you the right advice and we will gladly exchange anything that’s not working for you. Can Walmart do that for you?
