Elements of Style – New Year, Not So New You
Maintain your signature style to keep yourself looking great and feeling confident all year long

Welcome to a new year, a new decade, and a time for new beginnings. Whether you’re looking to perfect your golf swing, to get a fresh start or to revive your passed resolutions, there’s something about the New Year that fills us with confidence, excitement and motivation. It’s important to dream big, but lofty goals can be overwhelming. Rather than expecting a new and improved person to suddenly appear on Jan. 1, we should focus on steadily becoming the best versions of ourselves.
Start with your appearance. Maintaining confident, well-groomed hair year-round requires management and upkeep. The goal should be to never look like you’ve just cut your hair. This means going into your salon for regular cuts or cleanups, rather than letting your hair grow in for long periods between visits. We recommend a haircut every 21 days. Developing a grooming regimen and following just a few simple steps each day will help you achieve lasting results. Our memberships are the best value and make it easy to look your best. You don’t need an extreme makeover each time you visit your stylist, but you should strive to maintain your signature style to keep yourself looking great and feeling confident all year long.
Ten years of greying shouldn’t suddenly disappear overnight. You don’t want to leave the office looking like Fred Couples and come back the next day looking like Phil Mickelson. Add a touch of pigment, while making your hair look naturally healthier and more youthful, with our “Fountain of Youth” hair color. Every 4-6 weeks, enjoy this simple five-minute service as you relax at the shampoo bowl. You don’t have to have a head of salt and pepper locks to enjoy the effects of this service. Chances are that with time and sun exposure, your color has faded without you seeing much of a change. The Fountain of Youth will bring life back to even the slightest dullness.
Additionally, as we enter into the cold winter months, it is important to make sure that your skin is ready for the change. A good facial cleanser should always be paired with a great moisturizer. Jack Black’s Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanserpaired with the Double Duty Face Moisturizerwill keep your face feeling fresh and perfectly conditioned. Taking it a step further, it is just as important to protect your skin from those cold winds and UV rays. Jack Black’s Oil-Free Sun Guardis just the sunscreen to use to ensure maximum, oil-free protection.
This New Year treat yourself by getting into a routine and find what works best for you, your hair, your skin and your lifestyle. Wishing you a healthy, happy and stylishly confident 2020!
