Let’s Talk About Your Eyebrows

Eyebrows? It’s no secret that we ladies have a thing with our brows. Is the shape right? The color? The thickness? It’s been said that the eyebrows are the most important feature of the face, so it’s definitely worth having them done by someone who truly understands what it means to shape your brows. Here at Rodi Salon, we offer expert eyebrow sculpting to perfect your brows and enhance your natural beauty. Below, we’ll talk about five reasons we believe brow shaping is so important.

  1. They make you look rested. Whether you got an hour of sleep or 10 the night before, a great brows will never tell your secrets!
  2. They offer a subtle change to your look. You don’t have to go crazy to get a slightly different look. Let people wonder… “there’s something different about you….”
  3. They lift the eyes without the botox. As much fun as it is to inject a toxin into your forehead, you can actually skip it with the right brow shape!
  4. They can allow you to cut back on your makeup routine. In a hurry? No problem! When your brows are shaped properly they bring out the best in your face. Swipe on some mascara and lip gloss and head out the door. We’ll never tell, and neither will your brows!
  5. They can help you look younger. Upkeeping your brows is one of the easiest ways to keep your face looking youthful and fresh. It doesn’t take a lot to stay looking well groomed and polished, and eyebrow shaping should be at the top of your list!

Are you convinced? Come on in to Rodi Salon today and show your brows some love with our expert eyebrow sculpting.

Facial Waxing to Manage Unwanted Hair

Ladies, it’s time to talk about unwanted facial hair. I know, it’s not exactly the hottest topic of conversation, but so many of us deal with this common beauty issue! There are lots of different ways to go about managing this – bleaching, waxing, and even shaving. Here at Rodi Salon, we specialize in facial hair removal. Read on to learn about some of the benefits to this hair removal method, and why we believe waxing is the best way to remove unwanted facial hair.

First of all, waxing can be a fantastic exfoliant. While it won’t replace regular exfoliation, it does act as an exfoliant to help remove the top layer of dead skin cells. The fresh layer of skin underneath is smooth and perfectly primed to soak up any nourishing moisturizers you might apply afterward. This process of skin renewal will help you maintain a healthy glow, especially if waxing becomes part of your regular routine!

Next, say farewell to stubble! We know shaving can be more convenient because you can just quickly do it at home, but it also causes that obnoxious stubble. How? Shaving cuts the hair off right at the surface of the skin, which causes it to grow back with those poky blunt edges. That’s the last thing you want to appear on your upper lip or chin, am I right? Waxing, on the other hand, will remove the hair shaft entirely. This will cause it to grow back naturally with no blunt edges, and because the entire hair is removed, you can go up to two weeks before needing to wax again! Yes, please!

Finally, waxing requires less maintenance over time. Besides the fact that your technician has complete control over which hairs are waxed and which aren’t (hello, gorgeous brows!), waxing also causes less hair to grow back over time. Waxing the same areas will cause the hair follicle to stop producing hair over time. This is wonderful news for those of us who grow hair in places we really don’t want it- like the upper lip or chin! Making hair removal by waxing a regular part of your beauty routine will ensure longer lasting results over time! Are you ready to make perfectly shaped brows and a hair-free face a part of your self-care routine? Come see the professionals at Rodi Salon and allow us to make perfectly shaped brows and smooth skin a reality for you! You can find us at 2070 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 181 in Vienna, VA, or give us a call on 703-288-3880. For your convenience, you can also make your appointment via our mobile app. Download it for free on iTunes, Google Play, or Amazon.

Here at Rodi Salon, we are committed to helping you look and feel your absolute best. To that end, we know the value of using professional hair treatments to make that happen. We have a variety of options to help address any hair concerns you may be experiencing, but today we are going to focus on one of our most popular options: the Redken Chemistry System.

As an exclusive, professional in-salon service, Redken Chemistry offers intense, customized treatments for whatever your hair needs – whether it’s moisture, color protection, strength, softness, control, or a combination of these! Each treatment also has a corresponding take-home regimen so you can maintain the incredible results after you leave the salon.

Redken Chemistry offers intense customized treatments for whatever your hair needs. These exclusively individualized treatments are called “Chemistry Phase Shots”, and they come in seven formulas:

  • All Soft Deep Treatment for dry, damaged hair
  • Clear Moisture Treatment to eliminate flyaways and add shine
  • Color Extend Deep Treatment for color treated hair
  • Extreme Deep Treatment to boost distressed hair
  • Real Control Deep Treatment to help repair hair
  • Smooth Down Deep Treatment to help tame unruly hair
  • Time Reset to fortify age-weakened hair

Redken’s Chemistry System is a professional use treatment collection that adds shine and strength, seals the hair cuticle, and adds a brilliant gloss that lasts for at least three weeks! The Chemistry System is an “inside-out approach” to creating healthy, shiny hair. These treatments offer intense, customized benefits for individual hair needs, and provide immediate results after just one treatment. Complete your treatment with the proper at-home regimen that your stylist will recommend at your appointment.

Gift Yourself a Sexy New Cut for the Holidays

We know how it is, this time of year you’re so busy thinking about gifts for everyone on your list, but don’t forget about yourself! What better time is there than now to think about a change in your hairstyle? Here at Rodi Salon, we have exactly what you need to get the sexy new look you deserve this season. To help get an idea of what you might want to try next, we’ve gathered a list of the hottest trends in haircuts right now. Take a look and let us know which one has caught your eye!

Heavy bangs. Blunt bangs are popping up all over right now. Keep them looking sexy by styling them with a little texture. Bangs are a fantastic way to create change without losing overall length. Cutting full bangs will instantly update your style and keep you on trend without a lot of fuss.

Blunt lob. The long bob is one of the most popular cuts of the moment, and for good reason. The key to making it work is customizing the finish to your unique facial structure. We recommend bringing ample photo inspiration to show your stylist what you’re looking for, then work together to make the cut unique to your hair texture and face shape.

The sexy pixie. The pixie is as hot as ever, and this time of year is the perfect time to rock it with style. For a party ready look, use your fingers to work a bit of gel through dry hair, while pulling small sections up and in different directions to create a sexy, spiky delight.

Long, internal layers. Not ready to chop it all off? This gorgeous style can offer the update you’re looking for without committing to a major change. The key to this cut is the invisible layers. Cutting the layers long while layering them internally will create all the gorgeous volume and movement you desire.

Are you ready for a hot new look? If so, the team here at Rodi Salon is ready for you! Make an appointment today by calling 703-288-3880, or come see us at 2070 Chain Bridge Road, Suite 181 in Vienna, VA.

The Holiday season has arrived, and with it we welcome the multitude of parties, get-togethers, and a pressing urge to change up your look. Here at Rodi Salon, we have exactly what you need to achieve the hair of your dreams this season. We’ve even done the legwork on the hot hair color trends that are sure to be all the rage early next year. Why not get an edge on the competition and be one of the first to rock one of these sexy new colors? Read on for a list of a few of our faves to help inspire you before your next appointment, then come see us to make your holiday hair dreams a reality!

Chestnut brown and gold.  Classic chestnut tones will get a subtle upgrade come 2019, thanks to face-framing, light-brown highlights. This gorgeous trend will add dimension to brunette hair with sleek, golden highlights. The best part about this color is that it’s so easy to maintain—especially if you’re starting with a natural brown base.

Inky black. Not to be confused with the angsty shade you dreamed about during your goth phase in the early aughts, this rich, inky-black is all about shine—the glossier, the better. Preserving your shade is crucial with this hue, so be sure to ask your stylist about product recommendations to help preserve your color.

Ash gray. If you’d like to take a walk on the dark side without committing to a full-on black look, ash gray is an excellent choice. The darkest sections will be along your roots- which makes them super ideal for growing out- and the color will grade to a light, moody gray toward your ends. This is a great way for our platinum friends to update to a more wintry mood as well.

Baby blonde. Speaking of platinum, if you’ve reached platinum fatigue but aren’t quite ready to part with your signature hue, white blonde is your new calling card. The inspiration behind this shade is the sun-brightened, natural streaks you’d find on surfers or little kids. Just make sure you ask your stylist to lean towards pale blonde tones rather than pure icy.

Are you ready to get a gorgeous jump on 2019? If so, the experts at Rodi Salon are here to help you achieve the winter hair of your dreams.

Keep Your Hair Healthy this Winter

It’s that wonderful time of the year, Christmas is just around the corner and the winter season is rapidly approaching. With it comes the cold, dry air that requires us to take a little extra care of our hair. During winter, our hair tends to get dry, brittle and experience more breakage. For this reason, we need to talk about a few ways you can protect your hair from the cold and keep it healthy so you can continue to experience the joys of winter.

Hydrate! Use conditioner every time you wash your hair and a hydrating mask like the Healing Moisture Moi Moi Hair Masque by L’ANZA once a week. This is a key element if you want to protect your hair from the cold since combining these two products will keep you nourished and prepared for the cold snaps.

Gentle Shampoos. Avoiding strong shampoos such as those for dandruff or greasy hair will help because they tend to dry and weaken hair. Ideally, use a mild neutral shampoo for daily use and regularly apply a hair oil moisturizer, such as coconut or jojoba.

Scalp Massage. Massaging the scalp is a very effective way to protect the hair from the cold. When you apply the mask or hair oil, massage the scalp to promote blood circulation and remove dead cells. After all, healthy hair begins with a healthy scalp!

Avoid Heat. There’s nothing quite like a steamy bath during winter, but washing your hair with hot water may weaken your hair’s health. As for heating tools, it is also advisable to carefully dry your hair with a towel to remove excess water and use your dryer sparingly. Heat drying weakens and breaks hair, so the less you use irons or curlers the easier it will be for you to protect your hair from the cold.

Cover up. Winter is the perfect time to style with a cute hat, not only for warmth but for the health of your hair! Covering your hair is a good way to avoid exposure to winter cold and moisture. Be sure that the hats and caps that you use are made of natural fibers, such as cotton or wool.

Don’t skimp on nutrients. A healthy diet is one of the most important things you can do to protect your hair from the cold. Foods rich in vitamins, proteins, and zinc will help you keep your hair healthy, shiny and strong. In addition, you should always make sure you’re drinking enough water to keep your hair protected and well nourished.

If you need a little help showing your hair some love this winter, the experts at Rodi Salon are ready to help you maintain those beautiful tresses.
