“I’m LOVING my blonde hair” by Kim Kardashian


What!  Yes the headlines are correct.  Kim Kardashian, the star of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” has redefined her look to include softer blond highlights.  My mouth dropped and I thought why would a beautiful brunette feel the need to change her hair color?  But of course Kim later confessed that it was just a wig but she loves the hair none the less.  By the way that is an incredible wig.  So what do you all think.  Love it or hate it?  Let us know!

Brazilian Hair Straightening On Sale in Beverly Hills!

tombrophyCome Celebrate N’ Get It Straight!

Tom Brophy Salon in Beverly Hills is Offering an Exciting Mother’s Day Promo of $100 Off a Full Brazilian Hair Straightening Treatment.

Just in time for summer, Tom Brophy Salon offers all women (mothers and daughters alike) desiring smoother, straighter locks a great reason to show off their beautiful tresses. For one month–between April 10,2009 and Mother’s Day May 10, 2009–the salon announces it will offer $100 off a full Brazilian hair straightening service*, which requires a complimentary pre-consultation. When booking the appointment, clients should mention “Mother’s Day Promo” to receive the $100 off.

“We wanted to get the word out about this exciting new treatment available to women who desire straighter hair but want a gentle process that doesn’t damage their hair or expose them to noxious fumes,” states Tom Brophy, master stylist and owner of the Tom Brophy Salon in Beverly Hills. “The Brazilian straightener is an amazing treatment that leaves hair feeling super soft, smooth and shiny, great for people who don’t want to spend a lot of time straightening their hair every day using various styling products.” 

About the Treatment

The formaldehyde-free Brazilian Straightener starts with a relaxing, deep cleansing shampoo that removes oils and prepares the hair to absorb the straightener, which is followed by a blow dry and flat ironing. The hair is rinsed and then blown out one final time. This revolutionary treatment is suitable for all hair types. The result is shiny, straight hair.  The treatment regularly costs $450 and requires consultation in advance, and costs less for a partial straightening. It takes approximately two hours and may last up to 4 months depending on how often the hair is shampooed. 

Why a Pre-Consultation is Required

The pre-consultation is required in order to evaluate if there is already significant pre-existing chemical damage to the hair, which the candidate may not be aware of. In cases of significant pre-existing chemical damage, the salon may advocate a different route. In cases of partial straightening, which are not eligible for the $100 off, the salon will customize the quote.

The Tom Brophy Salon focuses on sophisticated cuts and color services that work well over a period of time, in addition to offering high quality service to its clients. The salon’s menu of services includes: blow outs, updo styling, healthy scalp treatment, collagen hair therapy treatment, scalp cleansing massage, color (tint and highlights), color gloss, color correction, permanent wave, relaxer, and straight perm/retexturizer. 

The Tom Brophy Salon is located at 9681 Wilshire Blvd. in Beverly Hills. For more information about the salon or Tom Brophy, call the salon at 310.858.8780 or visit www.tombrophyhair.com.
