Going Back to our Roots

Thanks to all of out fabulous clients and talented staff for 22 years in business! To celebrate they thought we’d post some pictures what it all looked like in the beginning. Here’s to the memories from 1992!

Painting the mural was a big job! Part of the reason we picked our location at Douglas & Emporia was our dream of having a fun mural.

Oh Baby!

Newest family memberSuzie has certainly been busy! The newest addition to her family, baby boy Rhett Michael Cote, was born on June 22 weighing 7 pounds 11 ounces and 21 inches long. The family is doing great and big sister Carly has been a wonderful help and loves having a baby brother.

Suzie will be back to work around the first of September. In the meantime, we’ll be happy to recommend another of our talented stylists to help you get by until Suzie is back. Give our Customer Service team a call at 316-267-8000 for suggestions.

Naturally Straighter Hair

Want to straighter, smoother hair without chemicals? You’ve got to check out Aveda’s newest product! It’s quickly became one of our favorites and we know it’ll be one of yours too.

Now you can go from naturally curly to naturally straight hair with Aveda’s new Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight styling crème. This amazing new product makes it easier to style your hair into a smooth, straight look and as you continue to use this product to style your hair, it will progressively hold the straighter style longer. As you blow-dry your curls, plant-derived fibers create a locking layer to keep your hair straight, day after day. In testing, 94 percent of product testers said it helped eliminate curl immediately and Aveda found that after five consecutive applications of Naturally Straight, hair will stay straight to up to three washes! Organic cassava root helps form a barrier against even the intense Kansas humidity – so you don’t have to worry about frizz!

Congratulations Hannah!

HannahCongratulations to Hannah,
our new Education Director!

With a passion for learning, Hannah has pursued lots of advanced training in hair services, especially in hair color. She has studied under an American Board Certified Colorist and other advanced academies to stay up to date on what’s happening in hair. In her new position, Hannah will coordinate education from Aveda, other companies and our talented team, as well as help teach classes herself.

Hannah says, “To be successful in this industry, stylists have to constantly work to educate themselves on trends and techniques. I’m excited to share my passion with the rest of our team.”

Mel and Hannah are going to Aveda Institute New York in September to learn the newest color and cutting trends to come back and teach our staff. We can’t wait to see what they learn.

Makeovers Help Fund Dress for Success

For the ninth year in a row, Planet Hair was honored to participate in the Dress for Success Sisterhood of the Divine Makeover. We love being part of this event, a major fundraiser for this incredible organization that promotes economic independence and job placement for disadvantaged women.

Women who deserve a makeover are nominated before the event by friends, family and coworkers.  The winning nominees were given head-to-toe makeovers including hair, makeup, clothing and a whole new attitude, and were revealed at a luncheon at the Wichita Marriott on June 22.

It’s so much fun to see the difference a makeover can make, especially for such deserving women.
