What's All the Tape About?

The Kinesio Taping Method is designed to facilitate the body's natural healing process while allowing support and stability to muscles, joints, ligaments, and tendons without restricting the body's range of motion. It is used successfully with a variety of orthopedic, neuromuscular, nuerological, and medical conditions. Kinesio Tape can be applied in hundreds of ways and has the ability to re-educate the muscular system, reduce and eliminate pain, inflammation, and bruising.

Here is a testimony on how well Kinesio Taping works:

"I was seeing Beth for my Plantar Fascitis for both feet. I was walking with a limp and was in constant pain with every step. SHe applied Kinesio Tape to both feet and massage therapy for several weeks. I am now walking normal, NO PAIN, and back to exercising regularly. My plantar fascitis is gone! I strongly recommend taping to all my family members, friends, and everyone with muscle and pain issues."- Gina Baker


The Charles Penzone Salons has Kinesio Tape available a la carte or as an add-on to a massage.

During this stand alone service, your condition will be assessed by our Kinesio Taping Certified Practitioner and the area of concern will be taped. 30 mins, $40. Additional tape applications $10/each. (Available at Dublin, only)

Product of the Month-Davines MINU Serum

Starting in February 2015, The Charles Penzone Salons will feature a highlighted product every month at a 20% discount, doned our Product of the Month. Why? Because we have fallen in love with the product, and want our guests to experience it as well! Ask your hair professional about the product in your next appointment. We hope you fall in love with our Product of the Month as well!

                         

This month our featured product is Davines MINU serum. Add this serum to your hair care regimen, and you won't regret it! Davines MINU serum adds shine and helps to maintain the intensity of color treated hair between visits. Ideal for ALL hair types, it's worth giving it a try, especially at a special discounted price.

The difference between MINU serum and other serums? It's not oily and will not weigh the hair down. The Illuminating Minu Serum provides hydration and moisture to dull lifeless hair. And it's full of nothing but good ingredients like amino acids, proteins, and extracts of the Salina Caper. 


                        

HOW TO USE:

For medium-coarse hair, apply to towel dried hair after conditioner. For fine hair, apply directly after shampoo. Do not rinse.  Proceed with drying and styling the hair as you normally would.

Spring Hair Trends 2015

From smooth pony tales to gorgeous blowouts, boho waves, and just tasseled or braided locks, this Spring will be a relaxed breeze. In the past we've spent our time with perfect curls or just-right buns, but no longer! It's time to have fun with your hair.

If you have texture to your hair then work with it, boho waves are hot this year. The more lose and messy, the better. No more picture perfect curls- embrace the beauty of just letting you hair be itself.



If you have natural straight hair and want the boho waves, try braiding your hair in a very messy lose braid mist with a little water and wear this during the day as braids are still hot. Tomorrow, take it out, spray with a sea salt spray, and now you have your very own boho waves. That's a 2-in-1 look! My product reccomendation for this look is the Davines This Is A Salt Spray, sold in The Charles Penzone Salons.



Long /low sleek pony tales are also hot this year and can be transformed in many looks for the next few days. Wear your long low pony today, tomorrow twist and don't forget to mist your pony then wrap into a knotted bun. Wear this for a day or into a fun night out, then the next day let all this out and once again you have your messy locks! My product reccomendation for this style is to use the Alterna Cavier Anti-Aging Working Hairspray for that sleek, keep everything in place look. For second-day hair, I reccomend the Davines Hair Refresher, a great dry shampoo for that perfect second-day hair look. Both sold at all Charles Penzone Salons.



Blow outs are another welcome back trend all hairdressers are loving this spring, that leaves your hair in full bounce and gorgeous shine that is sure to make everyone stop. Stop by our salons and try the Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Blast for added volume.


        
  
Accessories are more then welcome. If you're feeling like your pony or bun needs a little something, add a fun head band or clip of any kind to jazz up your style. Fun, free, and easy is the way to go this Spring.
