your nails some extra TLC while sipping on your favorite lattes and snuggling in your coziest sweaters. In this blog post, we'll explore why making this transition is a priority and the importance of regular salon manicures.

Say Goodbye to Summer Damage

Summer can be tough on your nails. Exposure to sun, gardening, and pool chemicals can lead to dry, brittle nails. Transitioning your nail care routine in the fall allows you to repair any damage incurred during the summer months.

Hydration is Key

Just like you wrap up in your comfiest sweater to keep warm, your nails need protection too. Fall signifies lower humidity levels, which can lead to dry nails and cuticles. Incorporate hydrating nail creams and oils into your routine to keep your nails strong and flexible.

Dark, Dazzling Colors

Fall is all about rich, deep hues or warm neutrals. Swap out your pastel and neon shades for moody, sophisticated colors like deep plum, olive green, or toasty oranges.

With the drop in temperature, your nails are more prone to cracking and peeling.

Regularly moisturizing and using a high-quality base coat can help prevent these issues.

College life is filled with new experiences, late-night study sessions, and an array of social activities. Amidst all the excitement, one aspect often neglected by students is their hair. Whether it's due to a lack of time, budget constraints, or simply not realizing the importance, many college students unknowingly sabotage their hair. In this blog post, we'll explore the common ways students harm their hair while away at school and highlight the significance of prioritizing healthy hair and regular salon appointments, including hair color treatments.

Overindulging in Heat Styling:

College is a time when students want to look their best for classes, parties, and events. However, excessive use of heat styling tools such as flat irons, curling wands, and blow dryers can take a toll on the hair. The high temperatures damage the hair shaft, leading to dryness, breakage, and split ends. Encourage students to embrace natural hairstyles or opt for heat protectants before styling to minimize the damage caused by excessive heat.

Neglecting Proper Hair Care Routine:

With busy schedules and a multitude of responsibilities, college students often neglect establishing a proper hair care routine. Irregular washing, skipping conditioner, or using harsh products can lead to an unhealthy scalp and lackluster hair. Stylists are a great resource for educating students about the significance of a consistent routine that includes shampooing, conditioning, and moisturizing to maintain healthy, vibrant hair. Stylists can also direct them to products suited for their hair type .

Stress and Unhealthy Lifestyle Habits:

College life can be stressful, and stress can manifest itself in numerous ways, including affecting our hair. Stress hormones can disrupt the hair growth cycle, leading to increased hair shedding or even hair loss. Additionally, an unhealthy lifestyle involving inadequate sleep, poor nutrition, and excessive alcohol or caffeine intake can have adverse effects on hair health. Students should be reminded to manage their stress levels, practice self-care, and adopt a balanced lifestyle to support healthy hair growth.

Ignoring Regular Trims and Color Maintenance:

In the whirlwind of college life, getting regular hair trims and maintaining hair color often falls by the wayside. Neglecting regular trims allows split ends to travel up the hair shaft, causing further damage and hindering hair growth. Similarly, if students have colored their hair, neglecting color maintenance can lead to dull, faded hair color. Encourage students to schedule regular salon appointments every 6-8 weeks for trims and touch-ups to maintain the health and vibrancy of their hair. Regular color maintenance appointments can ensure their hair color looks fresh and vibrant, enhancing their overall style and confidence.

Lack of Professional Haircare Guidance:

Without the guidance of a professional hairstylist, students may struggle to identify their hair type, choose suitable products, or address specific hair concerns, including hair color treatments. Encourage students to seek the expertise of a hairstylist who can assess their hair, provide personalized recommendations, and offer valuable tips for maintaining healthy hair and vibrant hair color. Our Forbici professionals can guide students in creating a hair care routine tailored to their specific needs and help them achieve their desired hairstyles and hair colors without causing unnecessary damage.


While college life can be exciting and overwhelming, it's important for students to prioritize their hair health and maintain their desired hair color. By being aware of the common hair sabotage practices and understanding the significance of regular salon appointments, including hair color treatments, students can take proactive steps towards maintaining healthy, beautiful hair throughout their college years and beyond. A little care and attention, along with professional guidance, can go a long way in ensuring their hair remains a reflection of their overall well-being and confidence.

What is HydraFacial? An invigorating treatment that can be given in as little as 30 minutes. It delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective. Our non-invasive treatment improves skin health, addresses individual concerns, and creates a glow like no other. Unlike traditional facials, it’s performed via device rather than by hand, for deeper penetration and longer lasting results.

How is it different?

The magic is in the wand, which works like a vacuum to open pores for a deep cleanse and easy extraction of impurities and dead skin cells. It also allows the active ingredients in our boosters to penetrate deeper, for the most effective treatment possible.

Am I a candidate for this treatment?

The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs.

How long does this treatment take?

Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why a HydraFacial treatment is fast and efficient treatment, taking as little as 30 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.

HydraFacial offers impressive results for clients due to several key factors:

  • Advanced Technology: HydraFacial employs advanced technology that sets it apart from traditional facials. It utilizes a patented device that utilizes a unique vortex suction system to deep-cleanse and exfoliate the skin while simultaneously delivering nourishing serums. This technology ensures thorough removal of impurities and dead skin cells, resulting in a more refined and radiant complexion.

  • Deep Cleansing and Hydration: The multi-step process of HydraFacial involves deep cleansing and exfoliation to unclog pores and remove debris. It also provides intensive hydration to the skin, replenishing moisture and promoting a plump, youthful appearance. The hydration step is particularly beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin.

  • Non-invasive and Comfortable: HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment that does not require any downtime or recovery period. The procedure is generally comfortable and well-tolerated by most individuals. It is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin, as it does not involve harsh chemicals or aggressive techniques.

  • Immediate and Long-lasting Results: One of the key advantages of HydraFacial is its ability to deliver immediate results. After a single session, individuals often notice improved skin texture, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, minimized pores, and a more even skin tone. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, which can lead to long-term benefits such as improved skin elasticity and firmness.

  • Versatility: HydraFacial can address a wide range of skincare concerns, including acne, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, congested pores, and signs of aging. It is a versatile treatment that can be adapted to suit various skin conditions and goals, making it a popular choice among spa-goers looking for comprehensive skincare solutions.

  • Customization: HydraFacial is a customizable treatment that can be tailored to address specific skincare concerns. It combines various techniques like cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant infusion into a single procedure. The ability to personalize the treatment allows for targeted improvements based on individual needs.

Let’s Talk About Boosters!

The Boosters used in HydraFacial treatments are specialized serums that are designed to enhance the customization and effectiveness of the treatment. These Boosters are infused into the skin during specific steps of the HydraFacial process, targeting specific skincare concerns and providing additional benefits. Here are the top ways in which Boosters aid in customization:

  • Targeted Treatment: HydraFacial Boosters are formulated to address specific skin concerns such as hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, acne, uneven skin tone, and more. Each Booster contains a unique blend of active ingredients that are chosen to target a particular skin issue. By selecting the appropriate Booster, the aesthetician can customize the treatment to focus on the specific needs of the individual.

  • Enhanced Results: The addition of Boosters allows for an extra layer of treatment that can intensify the results of the HydraFacial. The active ingredients in the Boosters work synergistically with the other steps of the treatment to provide enhanced benefits. For example, a Brightening Booster may contain ingredients like vitamin C or arbutin, which can help improve the appearance of dark spots and promote a more even skin tone.

  • Personalized Solutions: Since everyone's skin is unique, the Boosters provide a way to tailor the treatment to address individual concerns. Whether someone wants to target signs of aging, control acne breakouts, or improve overall skin texture, the selection of specific Boosters can be adjusted to create a personalized skincare solution.

  • Flexibility: The Boosters used in HydraFacial can be combined or layered to achieve multiple benefits simultaneously. This flexibility allows the aesthetician to create a treatment plan that addresses several concerns at once. For example, a booster that focuses on hydration can be combined with one that targets fine lines, providing both moisturizing and anti-aging effects.

  • Long-term Maintenance: In addition to the immediate results, some Boosters contain ingredients that can provide long-term benefits when used consistently over time. These ingredients, such as peptides or growth factors, can help stimulate collagen production, improve skin elasticity, and promote overall skin health. By incorporating Boosters into the HydraFacial treatment, individuals can support their ongoing skincare goals.

Whether you're seeking immediate improvements or long-term maintenance, HydraFacial has become a go-to choice, offering a revitalizing experience that leaves your skin feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and radiantly beautiful. Unlock the potential of your skin with Hydrafacial, and indulge in a transformative spa facial experience like no other. Check out our select package options!

*It’s important to note that the selection of Boosters and their effectiveness may vary depending on the individual's skin type, concerns, and desired outcomes.
