Your Hair is 90% of Your Selfie

Your Hair is 90% of Your Selfie In a study completed by InStyle Magazine, women in the Northeast and Midwest were most likely to feel that their hair is big reflection of their personality. 81% of women to be exact. Ladies at Canvas Salon that is you since we sit smack dab in the center of the Midwest here in Columbus, Ohio. At Canvas Salon we agree that hair often reflects your personality. We find women that want a funkier hair color often times have personalities that are a little louder and bolder. The traditional long hair style is typically worn by a woman who wants to blend in some. They may spice up their long layers with a splash of blonde balayage but they don’t deviate too far from what is worn by most women. So why do we change our hair style? The study covered that as well citing that

Top Canvas Client Questions

Top Canvas Client Questions When should I come back? That depends. Obviously, it’s up to you how often you’d like to be in the salon, and that’s something that should be discussed in your consultation. But typically, it goes as follows; Men’s cuts and pixies find 4 weeks as a good time for a clean up. Bobs/shoulder length hair can usually go 5-6 weeks, if you like to keep it that length. If you like to keep your hair long, or are growing it out, 8-10 weeks is the most you should go between trims to keep your hair at it’s healthiest. Color clients are a whole different story. Most will time their haircuts with every to every other color appointment. If you get retouches with permanent color (grey coverage, or different level than your natural) or a foiled highlight, 4-6 weeks is typical. Toners or an

4 Pandora Stations for Salons

4 Pandora Stations for Salons Curious about what plays over Canvas' speakers throughout the day?  We know the struggle of trying to choose the best Pandora stations for salons, so that's why we put together a list of 4 of our favorites to give you some inspiration! Hipster BBQ We Love Hipster BBQ!  The station name is kind of odd - but don't judge a book by it's cover.  This station plays an eclectic mix from The Black Keys to Kaleo, and we find ourselves tapping our toes more often than not.  With 1.1 million listeners worldwide, this station is popular with many more than just us at Canvas, and it's probably because of the diverse song list with very few repeats. Fleetwood Mac When in doubt, Fleetwood Mac is always a great choice for music in a salon.  We love the familiar hits of the 70s and 80s

Holiday Hairstyle: Soft Glam Curls

Holiday Hairstyle: Soft Glam Curls Looking for a glam holiday hairstyle for those Christmas parties?  Look no further: check out our video on how to get some soft waves with added volume!  We love this hairstyle because not only is it super simple, but there's a little trick to provide a ton of volume. Step 1: Spray Some Product We start by taking some Air Control and spraying it on the hair to give it some hold before we style it.   Sometimes if your hair is freshly washed, it does not hold a curl as well as second-day hair.  Adding a light mist of hairspray will give those curls something to hold on to. Step 2: Curls for Days We will start with dividing the hair into the middle part and pinning it up in sections.  Taking a large barrel curling iron or wand, we will take the hair in medium to large size
