We love this product so much we're throwing a party!

Well hello you charming charmers!
What a busy week we're in the midst of here at Ferricchia. The salon is buzzing with anticipation for this Friday's product launch party. We are hosting Tyson Kennedy, creator of Fat boy perfect putty paste and his entire team for a very special party! Of course we're excited about the burgers, Shipyard beer, live music and other goodies that will be enjoyed by all, but even more exciting is this fabulous product Mr. Kennedy has bestowed upon the universe that we are now carrying at Ferricchia!

We <3 this stuff!

Details Magazine named fat boy the best new styling product of 2012 and our very own Brooke couldn't agree more. She's OBSESSED!
Brooke says: I've been recommending this product to all of my clients who have thick hair that tends to look too soft after being blown dry. However, the putty is amazing for fine hair and a must on bangs. Though the product is called fat BOY I use it on my male and female clients alike."

What you can expect and achieve:
-The messy tousled look
-Beachy Bohemian
- Sleek Bangs
- Perfectly styled men's hair (short and long)
-Texture that takes care of poufy hair
- Eliminates fly aways
- A beautiful finished look

So we hope you will stop by the salon this Friday between 4-7pm to meet the Fat boy team, try the product and have a beer and burger on us!
Streets of Laredo
Streets of Laredo, a fantastic folk-indie band from New Zealand will also be in-house and also playing an after party at Slainte wine bar at 8:30- so the fun is sure to continue!

Reflexology and Massage at Ferricchia? Be still my heart (and back, neck and feet!)

Hello Lovelies!
Here we are with the weekend upon us. I don't know about you but by this time of the week my back and neck are in need of some serious TLC. Many of us toil in our nine-to fives in front of a computer and the sitting, repetitive motions and slouching (I'm soooo guilty of this one!) can really wreak havoc on one's body.
   This is why I was thrilled when we brought licensed massage therapist Heather on board at Ferricchia.
 In addition to offering chair massage which makes for great lunch break indulgence or add-on to any other appointment, Heather also offers reflexology. It's exciting to think that when you, our beloved clients walk through Ferricchia's door, we have yet another set of services to offer you that will heighten your experience and time you spend with us!

 In addition to being relaxing, both of these services offer therapeutic and natural approach to treating whatever ails you.
I'm going to hand the blog over to Heather now, I'm excited for her to tell you about what she does and why she does it!
     Heather:   Hello everyone! As most of you know any type of massage feels amazing but what most of you don't know is how beneficial it actually is. Massage helps reduce stress, manage anxiety and depression, for expecting mothers it can help assist with shorter and easier labor. If you're feeling stiff and have some joint pain, massage can help increase your flexibility in your joints and also helps those suffering with arthritis. But of course a big reason why people should get massages is it just gives them that feeling of overall well-being and adds comfort and a caring touch to benefit all lifestyles.

   Reflexology is a massage technique that is mostly done on the feet but also can be done on hands. Say you have a migraine, there is actually a point on the bottom of the foot that when pressure is applied can actually help relieve the migraine. How awesome is that?! 
Reflexology is great for the body, but did you know it can benefit the recipient psychologically? Helping with depression, it releases toxins from the body. The body under an extreme amount of stress will hold onto toxins and won't let them go. When the body is balanced, the toxins get released and once released the physical issues will improve. It's a known fact that toxins enter the body through the feet, the foot is considered the basis point for the healing. Ever recall a time when you realized if your feet are warm then the rest of your body is warm? This is an indicator that the massage in the feet in reflexology can lead to healing in other parts of the body.
    Bottom line: Everyone can benefit from massage and reflexology. As a massage therapist it's nice to hear that I can make someone feel good and help with easing aches and pain. That said, I'm also passionate about educating people on how beneficial these services can be to their everyday lifestyle.
I'm so excited to meet you all and get you in my chair!

HAIR CRUSH: celeb hair we heart!

Greetings, gorgeous guys and gals.

How many times have you looked at pics of celebrities in magazines or online to find inspiration and ideas?  Whether its the placement of a highlight or the way a layer falls, using public figures is an easy way to describe and decipher a desired style.  Here are some of the most sought after styles, and a few of our own faves!

Jennifer Aniston's honey highlights.

Emma Stone clean n'clear blonde.

Michelle Williams baby blonde pixie,
Marissa's crush!

We hear requests for Jennifer Aniston's dimensional honey blonde all the time, always.  She's the standard for highlights everywhere, and with good reason.  This is an easily wearable warm blonde that works with many different types of skin tones, and can be easily catered to each individual.  Emma's all-over super light blonde is one of the prettiest in Hollywood, and works perfectly on her pale palette.  Michelle Williams' champagne contains just enough warm beige to keep her crop looking soft, not severe.  

Florence Welch-on-fire.

Christina Hendricks' classy copper.
Krissy's crush!

Julianne Moore, eternally exquisite.

Fiery tones pop fiercely on fair skin.  Songstress Florence Welch takes her red deep and bold, a perfect match for rockstar texture and a heavy fringe.  Everyone's favorite femme-fatal, Christina Hendricks, stays near a more natural red.  But in true Joan Holloway form, Hendricks' red is bigger, bolder, and much more glamorous.  Julianne Moore is probably the most requested red around, with a deep auburn tone that can work with a wider range of skin tones.  Oh yeah, and the part where she apparently stays beautiful forever...we all want that too.  THANKS, MS. MOORE.


Anne Hathaway's dimensional brunette.

Kim Kardashian's lusciously long layers.
Tori's  & Heather's Crush!

Jessica Biel's beachy ombre.
Brooke's Crush!

 Anne Hathaway is lovely.  Her medium brunette hair is highlighted with a gorgeous caramel, the warmth from which makes this a highly wearable color for many skin tones!  Kardashian's look is one of the most requested style's out there today.  Everyone wants amazing layers down to their waist, but what makes the style is the super-rich chestnut and mahogany undertones.  She is the ultimate in sexy brunette!  Jessica Biel recently renovated her look with an all-over deep chocolate, but this is the fan favorite ombre of the season.  Biel's base is kept warm and not too dark, and her blonde is perfectly piecey, incorporating brights on the very ends.  The overall golden tones works on most skin tones, as well.

There's one more crush we haven't mentioned:  Sherri's!

It's Shakira, Shakira!
Sherri's Crush.

With who does your hair envy lie, lovelies?
