Tips for Mermaid Hair by The Gilded Pear

This insanely beautiful mermaid hair is part of a growing trend of sea-inspired masterpieces that have taken over the world of hair recently! The Gilded Pear salon is known for having exceptional services while staying on top of the very best hair styling trends. These multi-coloured tresses were done by stylist Kasara and look absolutely stunning.

Tips to prepare for getting mermaid hair from the mouths of stylists:

  • Don’t wash your hair the day of the colouring or the night before. Natural oils help the colours to work.
  • Disclose your entire colour history for the past 2 years to your stylist. Past colour jobs may affect the outcome of the dye job and they will need to adjust accordingly.
  • Let you stylist know if you have scalp sensitivities or have had reactions to products in the past.
  • Mentally prepare for what can be quite the process – especially if you have longer hair.

Maintaining your mermaid hair also takes special care so here are some tips for keeping that colour fresh as long as possible:

  • Moisturize your hair as often as possible by using sulfate-free shampoos, lots of conditioner and even leave-in conditioner
  • Get touch ups every 4 to 6 weeks, especially at the roots, to keep everything vibrant

Sock Donation Drive Starts Tuesday, November 15th!

Starting November 15th to December 15th, The Gilded Pear is collecting woolen socks and thick knee-high socks for the Hope Mission and the Salvation Army van. We are also accepting cash donations and we will use those to shop for more socks in addition to those collected. Socks will be dispersed out evenly between the charities.

With every sock donation, you will receive a coupon for $10.00 off any Esthetic or Massage Service. Make a Difference today!

Why You Really Shouldn’t Skip Your Mani-Pedi

One of the most exposed places on your body is your nails. All year-round, your fingernails are exposed to the elements (except when they are buried in your winter gloves) and whether your toenails are showing in summer sandals or are buried away in your winter boots, they too can get some serious wear and tear if not properly taken care of.

Manicures and pedicures do not only take care of the appearance of your nails – making them look polished, uniform and clean – they also contribute to the health of your nails by preventing breakage and a host of other issues associated with a lack of nail maintenance.

Regular treatments help to prevent or eradicate common nail ailments such as ingrown nails, fungus, thickened nails, brittle nails, curved nails and damage caused by the incorrect use of false nails or excessive nail biting. By keeping nails filed and smooth, trimmed to a reasonable length and covered in fortifying polishes, manicures and pedicures prevent breakage that can lead to the above-mentioned issues.

Additionally, these nail treatments go through an important process that benefits you in other ways. Exfoliating treatments during the mani-pedi will slough of dead skin cells, smoothing the surfacing of the skin and actually stimulating the regeneration of the skin. Calluses and uneven areas, particularly on the bottom of the feet, are also removed during the process of a pedicure which can help improve aches and pains caused by an uneven areas on the feet.

Massage and moisturizing of the cuticles and skin provide nourishment to the skin while simultaneously being relaxing, re-energizing and relieving aches and pains in the calves, ankles, wrists and forearms.

Keep in mind that manicure and pedicures are not only beneficial for women but can be really important for men to maintain and upkeep the health of their nails as well. Sports mani-pedis for both men and women also help keep your nails trim while you trim your waistline too – helping your nails to stay healthy but out of the way while you hit the gym!
