Our best tips for updating your style, maintaining the health of your hair, and adding a little pizzazz as the temperatures change.

A change in seasons can be the perfect time for a color makeover. With warmer temperatures, it is always fun to try something new with your hair such as beachy blonde highlights or gorgeous ombre hair color. Vivacious reds and rose-golds, rich caramels, and icy silver blonde accents can also bring new life to your existing hue.

If you are new to the world of hair color, you may be reluctant to dive in for something permanent, but there are several other options available at our Tallahassee hair salon that can be just as fun and that can give your style a boost. Adding a few carefully placed highlights can add just the right amount of interest to take your hair to a whole new level. You can also try a color glaze or demi-permanent hair color option. Both of these color services can add a rich hue to your locks without the commitment of a permanent hair color. Instead of a completely opaque coverage, a demi-permanent hair color formula, such as Redken Shades EQ, allows for a gorgeous, translucent multi-tonal effect. You’ll enjoy gorgeous tones that will gradually fade over time, allowing you to eventually return to your natural hair color without the need for a root touch-up.

The warmer months are an excellent time to schedule a deep conditioning treatment at Awaken514 to restore the health and manageability of your tresses. After spending time outdoors in the sun, your hair can become dry, sapped of moisture, brittle, and more likely to break. An intensive repair treatment such as a Redken Chemistry shot can infuse your hair with new life, adding shine, repairing damage, and restoring elasticity and vibrancy. If your hair is begging for a little attention, make an appointment at our hair salon today!
