Hotstyle Hair: A weave is not supposed to look like a weave
10/29/2013 9:12:00 AM
SalonTaj’s owner Tye Bogle boasts to her clients and women everywhere that a weave is not supposed to look like a weave. Bogle thinks that weaves should look as natural as possible. “Our clients not only have a fabulous weave but they have thick full hair and a full hairline underneath,” said Bogle. We've taken clients with no hair or hairline for decades and assisted in having a hairline and full hair. The salon offers their own line of hair for full weaves and extensions that clients have seen to last long, can be colored, and does not shed. Bogle is also expanding her product line and now offers an extensive wig line for cancer patients, those suffering from alopecia, and for women that just want to try a fresh new, temporary yet natural type of look. “Our extension hair and wigs are fabulously fierce! I have yet to see or experience hair of its caliber,” said Bogle who has 18inches of full long natural healthy tresses but prefers to rock hair from her own line. So do you want to get a fabulous, affordable hairdo and show the world a brand new you?! Purchase quality hair from a hair connoisseur?! Then check out Hair by SalonTaj where a transformation awaits you.

Get popping hair color for the summer
7/13/2013 1:24:00 AM
Nicki Minaj stepped on the stage for Hot 97's Summer Jam displaying her blond tresses and she has showed us that she can rock hair color from black to pink to anything that she feels like. While red seems to be the popping hair color for the summer we have some tips that will help you if you decide to color your do for a brand new you during the summer months. According to hairstylist Charisse Edwards of Zacore Stylz Salon in Queens, New York, women tend to put a strain on their hair, especially during the summer. Charisse stresses the importance of protecting your hair when getting a permanent hair color with the use of a deep penetrating conditioner every week. If you have other chemicals in your hair, such as relaxers, then you must condition your hair during or after coloring it. Its very important because hair gets very dry or brittle and can break easily when you chemically treat your hair. Charisse also advises to not use bleach when possible, except if your hair is natural. So color away ladies but don't forget to treat your hair well.
