The Sleek & Sexy Ponytail
Gather hair into a ponytail and secure with a rubber band. Then, sink a small anchor (attached to the clip in ponytail) to the top of your ponytail and continue to wrap the extension around the ponytail. A single braided strand on the extension is used to wrap around the ponytail in place of a hair tie. Clip-in ponytails are available in straight and wavy styles and can be applied by a certified extensionist or at home by your client.
The She by SO.CAP.USA clip-in bangs uses 3 clips to gently attach to your hair. Clip-in bangs come in both shorter and longer styles depending on how your client wishes to frame her face.
Use clip-in hair extensions (available in fantasy colors) to add a fun pop of color to your clients hair. This can be applied by you or your client. She by SO.CAP.USA Extensives are also a great way to achieve a more long lasting effect, but must be applied by a certified extensionist.
Use clip-on hair extensions underneath the hair (of a slightly darker tone than your clients own color) to add a subtle hint of ombre that can be added and removed in just minutes. For more volume towards the crown, you can add warm fusion hair extensions that match your clients own hair.

Katy Perry Returns to Her Roots
Spotted Monday in L.A. at an xx concert, Katy Perry had ditched her technicolor hair for her classic black. This past year we have seen her with every hair color imaginable from blonde, red, blue, pink, and the list goes on. Katy Perry was also seen with darker hair for her new ad campaign for Pop Chips.
In an interview with MTC earlier this year, Katy’s stylist, Rita Hazan explained the sudden craze with unexpected hair color “Some of the ’80s is back, those vibrant colors and neon colors. I think girls are a little more relaxed into bringing their inner self out, their inner crazy,” she said. “It’s not so structured, [like] you have to be pretty and fit into this mold. I love women embracing their inner crazy and making it work for them.”
Hazan said, “There are no rules, and it doesn’t seem like it’s organized or styled. Each person has their own individual personality and they rock [it] and it works for them. It’s nice to see women embracing themselves in that way.”
Clip-in hair extensions are a great way for clients to express themselves (much as Katy Perry has been doing this past year) without the damage of dying their hair repeadetly. It also allows them to try out a neon or vibrant color without having to fully commit. Clip-in hair extensions by SO.CAP.USA can be applied by your client at home, removed at home, and resued at their leisure.

The Benefits of Hair Smoothing Treatments
We have all seen the clients who abuse heat tools. The symptoms are all there: split ends. Frizzy hair. Dry and parched look. Over all lackluster appearance. And try as we might to convince them to slowly cut back their dependence on heat tools, they insist on doing it anyways.
For clients with frizzy, curly hair, going au naturale may put them outside of their comfort zone, thus their dependence on heat tools. This is where hair smoothing treatments come in – the only way to give your clients the smooth, sexy hair they have always wanted without the daily use and abuse of a flat iron. Find out the benefits of using a hair smoothing treatment in your salon:
- Natural Keratin Based Technology – Hair smoothing treatments infuse hair with keratin, a naturally produced protein that is needed to keep hair healthy and shiny. Keratin fills in the ridges of the hair where it is brittle and cracked giving it a smooth appearance.
- Safe for Color Treated Hair – In fact, keratin treatments are a great service to add to your client’s color consultation to seal in the color.
- They are Long Lasting – Keratin treatments last anywhere from 2 – 2 1/2 months depending on the hair type and how often hair is washed
- Save your Clients Hours Everyday – For your clients with naturally curly hair they may be finding themselves battling with the flat iron in the morning and at night before going out. This can be frustrating and time-consuming. A simple keratin treatment only has to be performed a few times a year and will literally change their lives. Keratin treatments also dramatically reduce your blow drying time.
There are also a few considerations when getting this treatment done such as:
- You can not wash your hair for a few days after the treatment
- You should only use sulfate free shampoos and conditioners to make the treatment last longer
- You must be careful to only select a hair smoothing treatment that is 100% formaldehyde free
For the safest, most effective hair smoothing treatment we recommend using All-Nutrient’s Keratin+ Smoothing Treatment – the only 100% formaldehyde free keratin based service. All-Nutrient’s Keratin+ uses a Cuticor Cellular MicropHusion System to heal porous hair to restore hair’s original health. To find out more about this treatment call us today at 847-741-500 or visit us online.

Everything you Need to Know about Organic Hair Care
If dry, parched hair is a concern of yours, it probably stems back to your hair care products.
With so many products on the market claiming to be “all natural” and “derived from organic ingredients” it can be difficult to know what to look for, and a “trial and error” phase can leave your hair dull and lifeless.
What you can be assured of is that organic hair care (and skin care) products are here to stay…because they work, especially for people with:
- Sensitive skin
- A tendency towards dry hair/scalp
The first thing you need to know is the difference between all natural and organic:
Al Natural Products: These are products that are 100% natural or “naturally derived. They are minimally processed and contain fewer preservatives and chemicals (usually). It is important to note that the USDA does not regulate products being labeled as all natural.
Organic Products: this refers to the ingredients used to make the product. Organic means the ingredients were grown without pesticides, chemicals and artificial preservatives. Certified organic means that 95% of the ingredients are organic. “Made with organic ingredients” denotes that 70% of the ingredients are organic.
Here are the top 5 ingredients to look for in organic hair care products:
- Shea Butter
- Vegetable glycerin
- Aloe vera
- Avocado Oil
- Tea Tree Oil
All-Nutrient is a trusted hair care/hair color brand well known for its fusion of natural and certifiably organic ingredients. All-Nutrient shampoos and conditioners are made for every hair type and concern – from dry hair, oily, or color-treated these botanical-infused cocktails will leave your hair in the best shape of your life.
For more information about All-Nutrient products and carrying organic products in your salon, visit us online or call us today at 847-741-5000.

Taylor Swift Debuts Her New Hair Color!
Taylor Swift is known for her long, naturally curly hair…and its vibrant blonde color. Recently she decided to switch things up when she debuted a slightly darker hair color for her new Covergirl Campaign.
The 22 year old spoke of her recent transformation,”I think in life we have a bunch of different versions of ourselves and that goes with our personality and how we act around a friend, that’s how we act in a job interview…it’s all very different how we act. I think it’s all equally different the way we choose to dress, the way we choose our makeup. The cool thing about makeup is that it can be so different on any given day.” Apparently Ms. Swift is starting to feel the same way about her hair color!
The last time we saw Taylor make a major hairstyle change was for the February 2012 cover of Vogue when she donned blunt-cut bangs. While this is not such a dramatic change in style, it certainly adds a rich sophistication to her look.
Going a few shades darker than your natural hair color is a great way to make a subtle statement without a major commitment. This can be done gradually with low-lights, or all at once with a single process color. To get the best looking results, we recommend using All-Nutrient organic hair color. All-Nutrient is known for keeping its color longer than any other dye on the market without all the added chemicals and preservatives.

Crack Hair Treatment: Your Defense Against Summer Heat
Let’s face it, if you live in the Midwest, this past week has been hot and sticky and (although we like it better than winter). And with heat and humidity, not only is your makeup melting, but your hair is starting to get frizzy and curly.
If you notice that your style is only lasting the first few hours of the day due to the hot, sticky temperatures, Crack Hair Treatment is just the fix you’ve been waiting for.
While other frizz-busting products only mask the signs of dry, frizzy hair, Crack Hair Fix actually works as a treatment. It has been praised in Allure and Beauty Launchpad magazine and is a staple for stylists across the country.
How Does it Work?
Packed with micro proteins and peptides, Crack envelopes each hair cuticle with a keratinous bond that blocks 95% of frizz and curl. This powerful cocktail of proteins and peptides also heals dry, split end prone hair.
Benefits of Crack Hair Treatment:
- UVA/UVB protection
- lightweight, moisturizing treatment
- Acts as a thermal protectant (Great for use with Ergo tools)
- Won’t leave hair oily/no product build-up
- Adds a healthy shine to dry hair
- Effectively conceals split ends
- Tames frizz and curl all day long

All-Nutrient Hair Color: The Quickest Dye for Guys
So often we may find ourselves marketing and suggesting hair color to our female clients, but what about our loyal male clients? Afterall, women aren’t the only ones who get gray hair! Many men may find themselves in a bind; going gray can be a hit to their self confidence, but a trip to the salon for a hair color appointment may seem overwhelming and too time consuming.
Michael J.Kunz, Regional Director for All-Nutrient says, “When men come in for a cut, adding more than 15 minutes for color is pushing it.” With All-Nutrient hair color, your male clients can literally shave 5 years off their age in 15 minutes or under.
It is important to break down any misconceptions about hair color to your male clients when bringing up the topic during a routine haircut. While an all over single-process color will require more trips to the salon, many male clients don’t know that a process like natural blending is a simple 15 minute add-on to their regular hair cut appointment.
Here are some services you can offer to your male clientele to fit their schedule and desired maintenance level:
Natural Blending: Takes between 10 – 15 minutes to seamlessly blend grays in with your clients natural hair color. This is ideal for your busy professionals who want to maintain their appearances but don’t have time for regular hair color appointments. To complete this service, use the appropriate Keratint shade with a level 10 developer. This service is great for clients who are first starting to see the signs of gray.
Speed Lights: This is a wet-on-wet technique that adds soft, natural-looking highlights. This service is especially popular with a younger clientele. It is also an excellent way to subtly blend grays for lighter hair colors. To speed up this process, lay your foils on top of one another instead of folding them.
Men’s Youth Booster: This service involves All-Nutrient Keratint Clear or a Color Safe shade comparable to your clients natural color. The Keratint works hard to repair damaged, dry hair while supplying hair with the necessary vitamins and minerals to create a lasting shine. This color technique is great for clients with a lot of gray.
