Back-To-School Teacher Makeover with BT Calgary

It’s hard to believe that summer is almost over and It’s almost time for back to school!

To get the back to school season off to a good start, together with our friends at BT Calgary and Apt 22, we gave one deserving teacher a makeover. Check out her new look and hear her story.

Feels so good to make someone feel renewed for a fresh start!


Great job by our master stylist Sara, Kim at APT22 and Dara with Artists Within Makeup Academy

Dave Kelly RedBloom Guest Feature

Excited to share our Season 4 guest feature, DAVE KELLY!

This Calgary celeb hardly needs an introduction, he's an award-winning host, writer, interviewer, and philanthropist. He's even hosted Ellen and Obama!

We’re pretty honoured to have Dave as a guest at RedBloom.

Usually the interviewee, it was fun being the ones who got to ask Dave the questions this time! We hope his q&a makes you laugh, as it did us...⠀⠀


Tell us about yourself and what you do:

Dave Kelly at RedBloom Salon

I'm a writer, a host and interviewer. I put on shows. I talk. I check my hair.


How do you define beauty?

Dave Kelly haircut at redbloom salon

Beauty is feeling comfortable in my skin.

Hopefully I've washed, that helps.


What's a unique gift that you want to share with the world?

Dave Kelly haircut

A Flowbee. I don't use it anymore. And also the realization that 99.9% of everyone I've ever met, interviewed or hung out with is doing what they think is best, no matter what their beliefs. That means they deserve our understanding and support.


How do you continue to bloom?

Water. Sunshine. Tequila. Mostly tequila.

New RedBloom Express Services

We are pleased to announce an innovative NEW SERVICE we are now offering at RedBloom Salon….
Say hello to REDBLOOM EXPRESS SERVICES!


What are these you ask?
A collaborative in salon and at home color experience. Basically, we apply the professional color in salon, wrap it up in our special RedBloom head wraps and you wash the color out at home!

Want more of a break down on how it works?

IN SALON:
> Check in, get your head wrap, make sure you have color conserving shampoo and conditioner and change into your robe.
> Next, you'll have a consultation with your stylist who will go over the homecare guide and have you sign a waiver.
> Then your color will be applied and we'll place on your head wrap.
> Before you check out, we'll set a timer on your cell phone for when you need to rinse, make sure you have your homecare guide and send you on your way!
AT HOME:
> Wait for the color to process (it's your time, do what you like!)
> At the recommended time, follow the instructions on your homecare guide and rinse out your color in the comfort of your own shower.
What you do after that is up to you!

redbloom+express+color+services+offered

What type of express color services will we be offering?

> Full - just like it sounds, this is an all over color
> Root - covers up that regrowth
> Part - this is a t-section that will cover your part and around your face

Are you a candidate for our RedBloom Express Services?
To receive these express services, it needs to be a tried and true formula that we have previously used on your hair; this helps us ensure the results. It can be a solid color, a gloss or even a toner for you blondies in between a highlight appointment.

Why did we create RedBloom Express Services?

To save you time and money, while still enjoying the same great salon service. Because we think that you shouldn't have to sacrifice on professional service to have fresh, beautiful color all the time.

We heard you. More and more women want to spend less time in the salon but still want to keep up their color. So what were the options? Trying your hand at box color? Wearing hats? Feeling uncomfortable with your regrowth? Hair mascara? Well, we think you should have better options than that, which is why we are bringing you EXPRESS color services. We know many of you lead busy, on-the-go lives and sometimes it's hard to fit that time in for a fresh color. With our innovative express color services, we've created a way so YOU CAN fit in that color appointment because you deserve fresh color more often.  Because less time sitting in the salon chair = more time for real life 

Another bonus of our RedBloom Express services? THE SAVINGS! We know getting regular colors can add up and sometimes that may even prevent you from coming into the salon. But our express color services can provide an option to still get a professional color and have a great salon experience at a lower cost. Check out our SERVICE MENU page for pricing reference for the Express Services

RedBloom In Real Life Guest Feature - Vanisha Breault

Shairing a special #RedBloomInRealLife guest feature on the inspiring woman is Vanisha Breault. A guest of Master Stylist Annah, Vanisha’s story is truly heartwarming and we hope you’ll take a moment to read her story…

Vanisha

About Vanisha:

Vanisha is the Founder, CEO and Social Justice Warrior of the Terminator Foundation, who’s vision is to reach individuals on a global scale that are affected by drug and alcohol addiction to radically revolutionize their lives using the Triathlon experience. After overcoming her own personal recovery and that of her daughter Eden, she became devoted to living her life and her recovery out loud. Using her past along with her skills and education, she helps others thrive after facing their own adversities. Vanisha’s mission is to declare war on the shame and stigma associated with addiction in hopes that other youth might find their way home and that every person grasped by the clutches of this disease may also find their voices and receive the support, acceptance and compassion that they legitimately deserve. Vanisha exemplifies that, regardless of the obstacles one may face, everyone can conquer them and build a life of resiliency and hope!

Q&A with Vanisha:

How do you define beauty? 

“Beauty to me is defined by an inward acceptance of self and self-love. Accepting myself and loving myself through every age & stage of my life. This inward work shows up on my outsides.”

~

What’s a unique gift that you want to share with the world? 

“The power of my story. And the gift of “Believing.” Believing in another human being when they cannot believe for themselves or in themselves (yet)”

~

How do you continue to Bloom? 

“I laughed when I read this question 😊 I am able to continue to bloom when I can stand in the grace and mercy that’s freely given to me on a daily basis. In and of myself, I can be hard on myself at times...remembering Who I am, and Whose I am; changes everything...that’s when I bloom”

Annah

 About her hair stylist:

Annah is a master stylist at our East Village location. She loves creative precision cuts, dimensional color and enhancing natural features. Friends describe her as a great listener, intuitive and creative! Check out her work on Instagram @thestylistannah

Fancy Ponytail Tutorial

Take your ponytail up a notch this holiday season with this FANCY PONY TUTORIAL!

With only slightly more effort you can change your pony from basic to fancy! It keeps it low maintenance, while still looking like you put in some effort.

We demonstrated this tutorial on long hair but it can work on shoulder length hair as well. Also we went for more of an undone look but you could also make this same style into a smooth and polished look instead.

Give it it a try and don’t forget to tag us in your #RedBloomInRealLife selfies!
