Head’s Up!

Warning! There has been a change to the entrance of the parking lot to the west of our building.

File Jul 18, 3 14 14 PM

The entrance to the parking lot has moved! Don’t let it catch you by surprise.  There’s a curb and sidewalk where the driveway used to be.

Rather than turning into the parking lot from Douglas, the entrance to the lot by our big mural has moved to Emporia Street.  The driveway is toward the back of the lot, so just make a U-turn after you enter to get to our spaces. The City of Wichita has changed this to make the intersection safer for pedestrians and to help traffic flow.

To The Moon! Jewelry by Lindsey Scot

Have you seen the new jewelry we have in by Lindsey Scot?

Inspired by the moon, these beautiful handfabricated works of art represent birth months, enriched with precious and semiprecious stones.

Lindsey Scot was born to be an artist, which isn’t surprising, given that her parents are Tod and Linda Ernst, co-owners of Planet Hair. With her dad being a hair stylist and salon owner, along with her mom’s background as a floral designer and past design company owner, Lindsey is compelled to create. Throughout her life, Lindsey’s parents have been proud supporters of the Wichita Art Community, giving Lindsey the opportunity to grow up around local artists. These relationships shaped her artistic outlook, inspired and encouraged by their  creative ambition.

Her work is a unique interpretation of wearable heirlooms that give homage to both the past and future. From geometric lines to the intuitive designs, her work tells a story that is conveyed through playful and sculptural objects. With every piece of metal that is carefully cut by hand to the stones that are delicately selected, every component has a purpose and a place.

See more of Lindsey Scot’s work on her website (http://lindseyscot.com/) and at the Finishing School for Modern Women’s Modern Venus – The Female Perspective show on June 23 and 30.

Awaken Your Scalp!

Are you a fan of non-wash days and dry shampoo? Do you hit the gym or the pool every day? Do you use plenty of hairspray or other product to keep your ‘do in the Kansas wind? Do you hate wearing dark colored clothing, because it shows off pesky dandruff flakes?

Then before you shampoo, cleanse your scalp with Aveda’s new Pramasana to remove build up from styling products, sweat, pollution and more. It’s like a detox for your scalp!

Beautiful hair is rooted in your scalp. The three steps of the Pramasana scalp treatment give a strong foundation for beautiful hair.

Start with the new Pramasana Exfoliating Scalp Brush.RitualPramasana

Next, cleanse your scalp with Pramasama Scalp Cleanser.

PShampoo
Deeply, yet gently cleanses and purifies the scalp to help instantly balance sebum levels, while it exfoliates and removes pollution – creating a clean scalp foundation for beautiful hair. Scalp is left invigorated and refreshed.

 

 

Then, follow up with Pramasana Protective Scalp Concentrate.

PProtect
Helps balance sebum levels to maintain the purity of the scalp at the root of the hair. This lightweight, leave-in treatment penetrates the surface layers of the scalp to nourish and help preserve the scalp’s natural protective barrier, while helping protect the scalp from aggressors such as pollution and other free radicals. Leaves the scalp nourished, soothed and feeling comfortable all day.

Planet Hair at New York Fashion Week!

Three stylists from Planet Hair recently returned from a trip that fulfilled one of their lifelong dreams –  working behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week!  Hair stylists Jesse McMillin and Mel Thorton, along with makeup artist Emma Terry, represented Wichita’s Planet Hair salon at the Fall 2017 New York Fashion Week., working with the Aveda Fashion Week team to create the hair and makeup looks that walked down the runway!

Recognizing that working on hair and makeup for these shows is a momentous career achievement for stylists, Planet Hair seized the opportunity to send three people to work with the Aveda team. New York Fashion Week is one of the biggest, most exciting events in the fashion industry. During the week of February 9, around 232,000 people attended more than 500 fashion shows during the New York Fashion Week Fall 2017 and over 2 million watched the shows online to see the trends the international designers have prepared for fall.

“I’ve always wanted to be a part of Fashion Week, since I watched runway shows as a little kid, but I never thought I’d have the opportunity to take part in it,” Terry said. “This was a dream come true!”

To qualify to participate in Fashion Week, Planet Hair asked their stylists to write an essay, telling the salon owners why they wanted to attend Fashion Week. The winning stylists attended training in New York in January, sponsored by Planet Hair. McMillian and Thorton studied with John Raymond, the lead stylist of the Aveda Fashion Week team and Terry worked with Janell Geason, lead makeup artist, to practice the season’s runway trends and techniques.

“I am very happy for the experience, even though it was terrifying and pushed me out of my comfort zone,” remarked Thorton. “I’m grateful to the owners of Planet Hair for making this possible.”

Joining 75 other international Aveda artists, Planet Hair’s artists worked in small teams during Fashion Week, getting models ready for the shows. McMillin and Thorton worked with upcoming designers LeAnne Marshall and Marcel Osterag. McMillin also did hair for a collective show of three designers in the Latinista Show. Terry created makeup looks for the Francesca Liberatore, Calvin Luo and Louis Verdad shows.

“Fashion Week was an incredible experience,” said McMillin. “It was fun being able to do edgier styles than we usually do in the salon, and creating styles I’ve never done before. I’m ready to go back and do it again!”
