Absolutely! Here’s Why: Unique Father's Day gifts: they do exist and we have them!! We are all weary of purchasing that tired old grill set again for that special guy on Father’s Day. Instead, make him feel like the Superstar with a pampering facial! Did you know that facials are a great way to start each season fresh and prepare your skin for the environmental

changes ahead? Summer is just beginning, and Forbici Facials provide immediate results! This treatment includes a complete skin assessment from our Esthetician (a trained Forbici professional who know exactly what to do to make you look your best!)

Our Gentlemen’s facials include custom blended deep cleansing, steam and enzyme exfoliation, and a conditioning mask personalized for Dad’s skin. He’ll also experience a de-stressing massage of the face, neck and shoulders that will leave him feeling totally relaxed and refreshed. Our tailor-made facial is perfect for the man looking to rejuvenate and cleanse his skin. Facials are a great way to relieve stress, and to also relax the muscles in your face, neck and shoulders.

Deep cleaning that he cannot do at home

Facials can include extractions, which is when the esthetician safely removes blackheads from your pores gets rid of anything that might be causing clogs. This procedure is not the same as squeezing a pimple on your own! It’s done very carefully to reduce the risk of scarring or damage. When pores are clear, then the esthetician has the ability to clean the pores themselves.

Home scrubs cannot come close to professional-level exfoliating products that target deep layers of skin and remove more dead cells. Chemical exfoliators, which use acids or enzymes to break down skin cells and remove them. Forbici estheticians are able to use these stronger products safely to give better results.

Before his facial

Tell Dad to skip shaving before his facial since shaving is an exfoliating process. Freshly shaved skin can become irritated so best to shave the day before your appointment.

Bonus: He will learn about skin products

An added benefit of seeing a professional for your face is that you will receive insights on what is best for your personal regimen. Our Forbici esthetician will provide a customized skin care plan for Dad's at home routine. Think of it like we think of haircuts (we always want to know the best products for our hair type).

It’s Spring! It’s time for NEW beginnings, NEW looks and NEW Guests.

Spring is a time of year we prepare for the influx of new guests. It is important to realize what it takes to attract new guests to walk in and use our services and how to keep them coming back. At Forbici, we want our salon to be successful and we are invested in doing whatever it takes to make that happen.

What it does it take to attract and keep customers?

We understand that not everyone is our customer and we try not to make the mistake of thinking we have to be all things for all people. We also know that there are certain standards that today’s clients expect from all salons/spas…

4 Things Clients Expect from Their Salon Visit

  1. The Experience. More than anything, guests prioritize the experience and they seek an engaging, fresh experience in store and online. We are continually finding ways of changing it up so our clients are nearly always getting a new experience. A good presence online gives our potential client access to who we are as a brand as well as a team and builds that connection that brings traffic into our salon.

  2. Personalization. Guests want us to understand their individual needs and base our offerings on that. Essentially, guests want to feel special.

  3. Consultation. More than 90% of NEW guests say they’ve never had a personalized consultation! When guests feel like the salon is the same old experience, they won’t really care to return. Our consultations are tailored to the guest in the chair at that moment.

  4. A Clean Professional Environment. When a guest walks through our salon doors, we want that first impression to be favorable and we want it to continue until that guest walks out the door. Details that might seem minor can have a make-or-break effect on client retention. At Forbici Salon and Spa, creating a high-quality client experience is our top priority and now, our guests will be able to see that for themselves! Did we mention our complete salon and spa renovation?

Customers can go anywhere to get their salon needs met, but at Forbici they keep coming back because we provide what they need from their salon and we continually work to meet that need. Knowing our customers and targeting the right customers, rather than trying to appeal to everybody, is what makes the Forbici difference. Our staff makes a huge impact on the success of our brand as they are a crucial part bringing in those all-important new clients.

We walk around the neighborhood and have a total understanding of the people who live, work, and spend time in the area. We see our clients in coffee shops, grocery stores and bars, so we have a general sense for community and what they really need and want from a salon in their neighborhood.

As a NEW GUEST we look forward to getting to know you! Visit our New Guest webpage and a member of our guest services team will reach out to you with an appointment /stylist recommendation. Our first time guests will also receive a very special discount to apply to any of our salon and spa services!

Don’t forget that our returning guests receive discounts for referrals and that ALL of our guests are eligible for our Loyalty Rewards Program where you earn points to use toward your future services!

It used to be a thing to be a “thing” to avoid gray hair at all cost, but today, people are going gray at a much younger age and even intentionally seeking out that silvery coolness as a fashion statement.

Whether you have traces of gray or you feel you are in need of serious camouflage, there are plenty of options out there and it’s important to understand exactly what type of hair color techniques are best for dealing with your unique coverage goals.

There are essentially two different types of color your colorist will use to cover gray hair—demi-permanent or permanent.

Demi-permanent hair color options, deliver non-permanent pigment that will gradually fade over time. “Demi-permanent colors don’t cover the gray so much as they color it, making gray hairs blend in more with the overall color and look almost like a highlight,”. The big difference with this option is the maintenance, because the grow-out process is much less noticeable, and you’ll be able to go longer in between salon appointments.

"When you want that immediate satisfaction of leaving the salon and no longer seeing any grays whatsoever, permanent hair color is the way to go" explains Redken Artist Jason Gribbin. Permanent color often requires a single process hair color service. Not sure what that is? With a single process service, your colorist will apply the color, let it sit and process, then rinse it off and you’re good to go.

Talk to your stylist

Not sure about whether you want color at all? You may wish to transition slowly. Have an honest conversation with your stylist about how long your transition will take, and ask about dimensional color services to blend into your gray hair gradually. Depending on your natural hair color and skin tone, adding brighter and lighter shades might be a route for you to get used to your new regimen.

Other gray services

1. Root touch-up

This is the classic root coverage, designed to disguise gray regrowth coming through.

2. Express touch-up

While traditional root touch-ups cover the entire root area, an express service uses the same products with a partial application method that focuses on the parting and hairline.

3. Gray blending

Low on commitment and high on the natural look, a little gray blending will seamlessly camouflage minimal regrowth using demi-permanent color. This is a great option for men hoping to blend their grays. We have dedicated services just for men so be sure and check out our Services Designed For Men!

Don’t forget the right products…

Because gray hair is always more coarse, wise to use conditioning treatments and using hair masks for extra shine. Ask your Forbici colorist for one that will work especially for you!
