1. Get a Makeover

Labor Day is the one time a year America celebrates its workers, and one fact is the pandemic hit the beauty industry hard. Ironically, hairdressers were some of the first people we called when the world started “opening up.” Because of this, we want to take a moment to recognize the value of our beauty pros with a special visit this week. Take a moment to schedule your appointment, so you are cut, colored and styled to perfection. From fall nails to glam hair for Homecoming, it’s the season to reassess your style. Give your beauty pro a call!

2. Stylish Hairstyles & Headgear

It’s the end of that summer heat but, man the weather seems to be staying hot. Keep your strands from that environmental damage with clever trending hairstyles and headgear. For long hair, according to Pinterest trends, head scarfs and wraps are the way to add some color and confidence to any situation no matter how messy your hair is that morning! You can tie a silk bandana to a ponytail or go full turban with a touch of class. Got shorter hair? Maybe a wide-rimmed fedora is the look for you. From baseball caps to fashion statements, this is a way to say goodbye to summer and hello to weather that demands ear cover. In any case, head gear is a powerful accessory.

3. Invest in a Future Full of Hair

Hair comes from the scalp, and it’s not often that we invest time or money on it like we do our hair, skin, weight or other aspects of wellness. BUT it’s time to change things up, thanks to technology. We have access to devices that did not exist for our parents, and hair loss is one of those things we can now prevent. At-home laser therapy devices are the hottest toy for millennials because it is a daily-use tool that can completely change the way your future self can look. Capillus Caps are a practical solution, for both men and women, and are on sale 25% OFF for Labor Day. This particular laser dome hides seamlessly under a hat of your choice with a back opening. In only six minutes a day, this device starts working from within.

4. Make the Most of Me Time

Nothing is more powerful than peace of mind and me-time. Use a meditation app to take a moment, stop time and breathe. Reevaluate and asses what your goals will be before 2022 is over, there’s only a few months left. Take a stroll in nature or try a nighttime meditation if you “normally” go to bed with your phone. Disrupt your weekend routine for some Labor Day wellness.

5. Hydrate

Yes, both your body and your hair. Go for that avocado hair mask or olive oil, keep it on for a few hours and double shampoo to rinse. While you hydrate those ends, drink a glass of water and browse through the many Labor Day steals in hair care. Quality haircare is expensive, but WORTH IT. No matter where you look there are steals and, of course, we are all about preventative haircare and improving the quality of hair.
