We cannot believe it’s been more than a year since Amanda joined us at Globe Salon, but that’s only because working with her is such a joy. She’s smart, talented, and personable, possessing an amazing rapport. Here, she takes a turn at writing her first blog for us. We hope you enjoy!

As the weather gets warmer, it seems everyone feels the need for change. Longer days, warmer nights, darker skin, lighter hair… What’s not to love about summer? When the season changes, we tend to crave change as well. With that in mind, these are my Top Five Picks to help revamp your routine with ease this season:

• Nothing looks more gorgeous than glowing, healthy, tan skin. But we all know how awful it can be for your health. If you want the glow without the sun, fake it! My favorites for an easy, natural glow are Jergens Natural Glow moisturizers. The smell has been slightly changed, so it isn’t as strong as before, and they now are available in firming formulas as well, so you can say good-bye to cellulite and hello to a healthy glow. Plus, you’ll be able to find them at most major retailers.

• Whether you shave, or (we hope!) take advantage of Globe Salon’s amazing waxing services, being bikini ready means having no bikini bumps. To help keep your skin smooth, I love love love Bikini Saver! This super-effective crème contains ingredients to exfoliate, soothe and leave your skin moisturized, all of which help to avoid those dreaded bumps and ingrown hairs. Bikini Saver is available at Globe Salon.

• With 100-degree-plus temperatures on the horizon, who wants to spend time with their blow dryer? That’s why Kerastasé Oleo Curl is a necessity for us wavy-hair girls. Just a quarter-sized application helps smooth frizz, define curls, and makes beachy waves totally achievable sans dryer. I like to think of it as a curl perfecting crème.

• Your skin is not the only thing affected by the desert sun. Damage to your hair and loss of vibrancy in color can easily be avoided by using a product that has UV filters. The Bumble and bumble Color Minded line is an excellent choice for protecting your hair and keeping your color salon fresh. Not only is it gentle on color when shampooing, it contains UV filters to protect during the day. Available at Globe Salon in a styling crème or polish, Color Minded is a great sunny season addition to help you achieve any look while taking care of your hair.

• Healthy, shiny, sexy, smooth hair is always in style, but I am usually skeptical of products that promise to deliver these things… Until now. Kerastasé recently launched Initialiste. They call it an “advanced scalp and hair concentrate”; I call it magic! I was lucky enough to test the product in the weeks before its launch, and I am living proof it works. My hair is stronger, more shiny, softer and has more substance than it did pre-treatment. And 93% of women who used the product agree with me. The before-and-afters are nothing short of amazing, and thanks to YouTube, you can see for yourself!

Remember, if you have any questions about any of my picks, feel free to ask me next time you are in the salon. Thanks for reading, enjoy the season, and see all of you soon!

After months of researching and testing various hair color lines to either replace or complement our professional selection of Wella Koleston (permanent) and Wella ColorTouch (demi-permanent), the search is over! Globe Salon has selected Wella’s amazing new Illumina to join our color bar. Illumina is a new-tech translucent line that doesn’t just add color, but creates shine and light movement like nothing else we’ve ever used or tested.

Not only that, but we’ve also invested in Wella’s impressive Climazon, a color-setting and deep treatment unit. The Climazon replaces the forced hot-air dryers typically used to aid in color processing, and instead uses infrared technology to apply heat at specific levels and to specific areas selected by the colorist. This advanced process neither dries out the hair nor the color, allowing for both faster and more thorough processing.

The real-world results of these upgrades to the color services at Globe Salon have been impressive. We’re seeing excellent grey coverage, and our highlights are even more stunning than before. As always, our color professionals will decide which color line and which processing method is best for you, and we are confident that these upgrades will mean enhanced color results for most guests.

Recently, Globe Salon held a Casting Call for professional hairstylists. We received some great resumés from some strong candidates, but if you missed the event, it’s important to know that you can still submit your credentials for review.

If you are someone interested in joining a successful, professional team in an award-winning, stable salon environment; a salon where an active management ensures that your day goes as smoothly as possible; a salon where working as a valuable member of a professional team will not only vault your career to new heights, it will also help you realize personal goals as well; a salon where creative passion is paired with an advanced eductional foundation and exceptional service; a salon that attracts a healthy mix of locals from across the valley, as well as visitors to Las Vegas, drawing them to our city’s burgeoning Downtown revitalization… If this sounds interesting, then perhaps Globe Salon and you should meet.

We are specifically seeking hair professionals with less than three years experience (for an accelerated Fast Track Assistant Program) and recent graduates (for our Full Assistant Program). Please visit the Join Our Team page for important details on what we seek and what to expect at Globe Salon. In fact, we encourage you to browse our entire website to familiarize yourself with who we are and what we are about.

Candidates must present themselves in person, providing a resume (including professional, educational, and/or personal references), a current Nevada State Board of Cosmetology license (or, if you are a student with fewer than 100 hours remaining, or a recent graduate, a letter of recommendation from your school), and a portfolio (if you have one).

If you think you’d be a fantastic fit for our team and our salon, we look forward to reviewing your credentials.

NO PHONE CALLS.

Getting hired at Globe Salon is not easy; it’s a careful, multiple-step process that takes time. That process is an important one that helps us find the right fit for our close-knit family of professionals. But we need to grow; our success demands it.

As mentioned in this article in the Las Vegas Sun this week, Globe Salon will be holding a screening event on Monday, April  8, from 11am–2pm. We hope that this Casting Call will help to shorten the time required to properly screen candidates and find the right ones to join our team.
