Preserve Your Hair Color This Fall

Fall is the time of year when people love to change their hair color. Maybe it’s all of the changes in nature occurring, like the leaves, but we see many people looking to go darker or more vibrant this time of year. One thing people always ask about is a way to preserve their hair color for as long as possible. Here are some expert recommendations to help preserve your color: Color Conserve There are many shampoos and conditioners out there that promise to hold in hair color, but none stand up to Aveda Color Conserve. We know it can feel hard to spend the extra money on the same day you’ve just invested in the color change, but it’s worth it. Minimally you should invest in the shampoo! Here is a short YouTube video showing why Color Conserve is so amazing: Shampure Dry Shampoo Another great way to

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 that this station offers.  Alth

Looking for a New Hairstylist?

Looking for a new hairstylist and not sure where to turn?  We've put together a list of 3 things to look for in a new hairstylist to make the search a little easier for you! Honesty This should go without saying, but you should seek out a hairstylist that keeps it real with you.  Keep in mind that your stylist has the health and integrity of your hair at the forefront of his or her mind.  So, if your stylist tells you that you won't realistically get to icy blonde from dark brunette in one sitting, trust in the process and in their expertise.  Keeping it real is key when somebody is dealing with your hair.

Holiday Hairstyle: Soft Glam Curls

Holiday Hairstyle 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 sized sections and cu
