HOW TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR AT HOME DURING TIMES OF UNCERTAINTY.
WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GET MY HAIR DONE AGAIN?
+ ( 4/29 ) - As of right now, Hair and Honey plans to re-open on June 1st, after the Shelter-in-Place order is lifted on May 30th. We are hoping to be open when this order is lifted, but as we have all seen - it’s entirely possible that extended restrictions could delay our opening. Right now, it seems like we are seeing daily changes within our state, so it is truly hard to knowingly say what will happen. We will continue to update you as things evolve!
I KNOW THAT I'M GOING TO NEED MY EXTENSIONS DONE SOON! WHAT SHOULD I DO?
+ If you know you will need to have your extensions done between April and July and haven’t scheduled your appointment, I highly encourage you to schedule now! You can do so by following the link at the bottom of the page.
Salon re-opening is unpredictable, however, availability for services will be limited due to increased demand, alongside the longer service timing required for extension appointments.

+ As always, if you aren’t sure about your hair needs, you can always email me directly and I would be more than happy to help you!
SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY NEXT EXTENSION APPOINTMENT NOW, OR SHOULD I WAIT?
+ Right now, we are of course unsure as to how our re-opening procedures will unfold, however I am still scheduling appointments for the mean time! I do anticipate that there will be a higher demand for hair and product orders in the coming months.
+ Thankfully, I am still able to place orders for hair, so I am encouraging everyone to schedule and submit their service retainer so we’re ready to go when the time comes! My ultimate goal is to do everything I can to ensure that we don’t have to wait unnecessarily to place orders for hair and schedule appointments, regardless of the state’s procedures for reopening.
If you are a new guest wanting to try extensions or have questions about the service, I am available for consultations over phone or video!
HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY EXTENSIONS RIGHT NOW?
+ The absolute best thing you can do with your extensions is maintain them!
+ This is new for all of us right now and the best thing we can do is keep up with maintenance at home and be sure to be extra gentle with your hair - especially if you’ve had your extensions in for 4 months or more.
+ Brushing is KEY, especially right now. Brushing and separating your rows will be essential in keeping your natural hair in its most optimal condition.
Please follow the instructions below to maintain your installation:
+ Brush each row individually.
Do this by clipping up all of the other hair away from the rows, then brush downward from scalp to ends until they are tangle free.
+Be sure the brush starts at the scalp and goes over the rows.
+ Brush the row thoroughly.
Shampooing and drying:
+ Brush each row before you shampoo. If you brushed the night before and put your hair in a loose ponytail or loose braid, it is not necessary to brush your rows before you shampoo.
+ Use GENTLE motions, no vigorous scrubbing at the scalp.
+ Wrap your hair in a towel. Do not scrub the scalp or rub the hair aggressively. Gently squeezing the excess moisture out of your hair with a microfiber towel.
+ Spray your stylist approved leave-in conditioner on the lengths of your hair. Detangle your hair as you normally do.
+ When detangling the ends, hold your hair at the mid-shaft and work through tangles one section at time. This will prevent unnecessary stress or pulling at the foundation.
+ Dry the rows completely.
+ When blow drying, sectioning hair by rows and clipping hair up and out of the way will make it easier. Whether you are sleeping or working out, putting your hair in a loose ponytail or loose braid is a must.
WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT MY HAIR COLOR?
+ The absolute best thing you can do with your color right now is wait.
+ I know it’s hard - but waiting until you can have your hair done professionally will eliminate the chances of future corrective appointments, or even potential damage. Something that has helped keep me sane through all of this is taking more time for self care, in other ways than using hair color. I have been taking extra time to actually apply a masque to my hair bi-weekly and I am avoiding heat styling at all costs.
IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN USE TO COLOR OR CAMOUFLAGE MY GRAYS?
+ If you feel like you can’t wait.. I totally get it. Especially while we have all of this time to overthink everything - it’s so easy to focus on needing our hair done!
+ Aside from wearing cute hats and headbands to help camouflage your gray, there are a few things that will help in the mean time. I am currently offering a solution through DPHUE that you can order directly through me!
+ DPHUE is a deposit-only, professional solution that will last up to six weeks, hopefully until you can get back into the salon to see me. We have root coverage kits, color depositing glosses, and root sprays that you can use in the mean time.
No unexpected orange roots.
No destroyed highlights.
No box-dye nightmares.
Just maintained roots while you're stuck at home. So if you're ready to look fresh, feel your best, and not risk a hair catastrophe, click the link below to start your digital formulation consultation.
Who would benefit from the root touch up kit?
This is perfect for brunettes and dark blondes that need gray coverage. This is a low-ammonia solution with salon-quality coverage that is meant to bridge the gap until your next salon visit.
However, this product is NOT designed to lift your natural hair color - so if your hair color is lighter than your roots, this option is not the best solution for you. The options are intentionally limited, and are formulated specifically to ensure you won’t do any damage to your hair, and will prevent you from needing a future color correction.
I formulate and order the product for you and your kit is shipped directly to your house within 5-7 days.
I HAVE HIGHLIGHTS AND MY HAIR ISN'T GRAY, IS THERE SOMETHING I CAN DO?
+ The best thing for my highlighted / high impact blondes is to embrace the root.
+ If you are a blonde that is feeling brassy, you can use purple shampoos to neutralize any yellow tones you’re seeing. You may also benefit from a semi-permanent color depositing gloss for your hair! This can help you “stretch” your color until we are back in the salon.
MY HAIR COLOR IS DULL, IS THERE SOMETHING I CAN USE TO ADD SHINE TO MY HAIR?
+ DPHUE does offer a range of glosses that can be used to “refresh” your color! These are semi-permanent and will fade from the hair as you wash. This company offers a wide range of colors to suit most hair types, however - my favorite is the “Sheer” gloss, which is designed to add shine and softness to the hair!
SHOULD I USE A ROOT SPRAY OR OTHER TEMPORARY HAIR COLOR SOLUTION?
+ My favorite solutions are going to be temporary color products, like root sprays or root coverage powders.
Root Powders & Sprays
- Color Wow
- Loreal Professionals
- MoroccanOil dry shampoo (available in light and dark shades)
Note: these companies will each have their own directions and recommendations for selecting the right shade for your hair, always follow the companies directions and recommendations!
+ However, if you need any help selecting a shade, or aren’t sure which one to choose, I am more than happy to help you! Please do not hesitate to reach out. If you find an amazing product that works for you, please tell me so I can share your experience!
WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I'M RUNNING OUT OF SHAMPOO OR STYLING PRODUCTS?
+ All retail products are available for curbside pick-up at the salon or delivery so you can restock your beauty arsenal!
