Chlorine, the sun, and salt water all dry out hair leaving it looking less than stunning. It is amazing how a hair cut (and maybe a bayalage) can make your teenager feel more confident and prepared to go back to school.

If you or your teenager are ready for a new look for fall, contact our Annapolis, MD Ruby Salon. Our stylists can help you achieve your dream look, or work with you to decide which style will best flatter your facial features.

Protect Your Hair from Too Much Summer Fun

protect your hair from the sun ruby salon annapolis mdThe summer is in full swing and while we are enjoying soaking up the sun and lounging poolside, your hair may not be as excited. Summer activities can take a toll on your hair, and it is important to take steps to protect it from becoming too dry or even discolored.

Too much sun and chlorine can damage your hair and cause your beautiful color to look brassy and your blondes can turn an unpleasant green. Our professional stylists at Ruby Salon in Annapolis, MD offer some tips and tricks for keeping your summer locks looking their best.

Tips for Gorgeous Summer Hair

  • Always stay hydrated. Drinking plenty of water all summer long is good for your hair, your skin, and your overall well being. Drinking plenty of water keeps your hair hydrated.
  • Come in for a mid summer trim. Frequent hair cuts or even just a trim at Ruby Salon can keep your frizz down and your hair fresh. Our stylists can help you keep your locks lustrous all summer long. We also offer products that can help protect your hair.
  • Wear a hat or swim cap while in the pool or sun. Keeping your hair protected and out of the elements can help it retain moisture and prevent damage caused by chlorine.
  • Wet your hair before swimming. This may seem counterintuitive but it is true, wet hair is less likely to absorb water in the pool, lake or ocean. Salt and chlorine can be drying and damaging to your hair. Wet hair can reduce the effects of chlorine or salt.

Products For Healthy Summer Hair

Taking care of your body, your skin and your hair are important for your overall well being. Apply sunscreen, and use these high-quality products to protect your hair from the elements this summer.

  • Malibu Shampoo: This shampoo is designed for swimmers. It can help to remove chlorine after swimming to reduce the “green hair” effect.
  • ColorProof Weightless Shine Spray: It’s like sunscreen, for your hair. This spray provides UVA protection for the hair. Spray it on before hitting the beach to help to preserve your highlights or color.

Ask your Ruby Salon stylist for personalized summer hair care tips at your next appointment. Our passion is your hair and we want to help you keep it looking healthy and beautiful through all the seasons. Contact our Annapolis, MD Ruby Salon today to learn more about protecting your hair from the summer heat.

Raising Money For Cancer Research

Last weekend three of Ruby’s Salon stylists took a stand against childhood cancer. From 2-7 Kelly, Katie and Halie were at Fado’s Restaurant shaving heads in support of research for the cure for pediatric cancer.

Kelly is our head stylist and owner of Annapolis Ruby Salon. Halie has been with Ruby for 1.5 years and Katie just joined our team a short 6 months ago. These wonderful women spent their weekend helping to raise awareness of the realities of childhood cancer. St. Baldricks is a foundation that raises money for cancer research.

IMG_9215

Our team loves giving back to the community we care about. St. Baldricks events are all about bringing our community together to support the members in need. Every person who came out to get their head shaved donated to childhood cancer research. This worthy cause was a great way for Ruby to contribute to raising critical funds needed for research.

Get Your Glow

Feeling confident in her perfect body.As winter starts to come to a close you may be thinking about how pale the winter has left your skin. Annapolis Ruby Salon is a proud exclusive provider of Envy Tan®. Our organic sunless tanning solution will leave your skin looking naturally bronzed and radiant.

Will I Look Orange?

No! Our 100% organic tanning solution offers natural color that accentuates your skin tone. The special solution will not stain or leave streaks. One of our professional staff members will take the time to carefully mix your personalized formula to enhance your natural skin. From just a glow, to full on bronzed, we can achieve the tan you have always desired.

Spray Tan V. Tanning Beds

Airbrush tanning allows you to tan your skin without dangerous exposure to UV lights. Studies show that tanning beds may have dangerous side effects such as increased risk of skin cancer. Prolonged exposure to the sun, or synthetic UV lights can also cause premature aging and wrinkles.

Our spray tan solution is FDA approved. The active ingredient reacts with your natural amino acids in the upper layer of your skin leaving you sun-kissed, without the harmful side effects. Organic spray tanning offers temporary and natural looking results for a beautiful and confident look.

Before a spray tan, we recommend that all clients take an exfoliating shower the day of treatment. Well exfoliated skin absorbs the formula better and allows for more even results. We also suggest waiting up to 12 hours before showering after treatment. Most spray tans last 5-10 days depending on your exfoliation rate. Our salon specialists can help you choose skin care products that can help to extend your radiant glow.

Get a head start on your tan before you take off to your tropical destination, or get a beautiful glow for a big night out on the town. Our spray tans are safe, quick and easy, we bet you will be instantly hooked.
