Pixie Salon’s Must-Have Hair Products

The Pixie Team has been raving about Unite products with their clients. It’s not just in the salon that we show Unite love because this is a brand we use in our own homes, too. Here are our team’s favorite Unite products our hair just can’t live without!

Shannon: Unite Boosta Thickening Creme

The Boosta Thickening Creme is perfect for achieving air-dried, curly hair. Not only does it add thickness but it also gives shine and keeps away frizz. Your new voluminous hair will be touchable and smell absolutely incredible. It is a must-have for fine hair, but if you have curly hair, this will keep it healthy and manageable.

Kassie: Unite Texturiza Finishing Foam

Kassie loves using the Texturiza Finishing Foam on her clients. It gives her and her clients a soft, tousled effortless look. The foam is fluffy and disappears into the hair with no residue. It is totally weightless and adds grip to help shape hair. You will be able to touch and play with your hair as though no product is in it. This is great for any hair type and any length. If you’re not a fan of foam, the Texturiza also has a spray option.

Danielle: Unite 7 Seconds Leave-in Detangler

For our stylist, Danielle, the 7 Seconds Leave-in Detangler Conditioner is a must-have hair product for every hair type, all the time. This gets rid of all those pesky tangles in your hair. With its proteins and moisturizing agents, your hair will feel like new. This is particularly useful before heat styling, and a leave in conditioner.

Dani: Unite 7 Seconds Glossing Spray

Dani has beautiful long hair, so she looks for a product that will make her hair look healthy and shiny, which is why she turns to the 7 Seconds Glossing Spray. It sprays on dry and airy and makes your hair radiant. This glossing treatment won’t weigh down your hair either. Like the 7 Seconds Detangler, this is great to use before heat styling and can be used on any hair type.

Chelsea: Unite Conundrum Paste

Our Guest Services Expert, Chelsea, has a short pixie haircut. With fine hair, she is looking for something that will give some volume and make it easy to style. The Conundrum Paste is her go to. Massage this paste on your fingers or heat it up slightly with a blowdryer before applying it to your hair. This paste has a hybrid feel that is waxy yet creamy, which helps give you flexible hold you can manipulate into whatever style you’re looking to achieve. This pairs wonderfully with the Unite Boosta Spray.

Tatianna: Unite 7 Seconds Moisturizer Shampoo and Conditioner

Tatianna is one of our Guest Services Experts, and she is currently a student juggling work and school. She needs something quick and easy to keep her hair looking good, which is why she turns to 7 Seconds Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. 7SECONDS Shampoo is a moisture-enriched shampoo that cleanses and protects hair from UV rays, thermal damage and color fading. From the shower to the end of the day, this combination will keep your hair feeling soft and nourished.

Reduce Makeup Transfer on Face Masks

Due to the pandemic, masks have become a part of our lives everywhere we go. We even buy masks to match different outfits. If you’re an avid makeup user, masks have impacted your daily makeup routine.

Have you taken off your mask only to notice a ton of product rubbed off your face and onto the face mask? Well, Chelsea, Pixie Salon’s Guest Services Expert, is a makeup lover, and she put together these tips and tricks for how to maximize makeup longevity and minimize transfer.

Type of Product

One of the best ways to minimize transfer is to pay attention to the type of products you use. If you are a fan of dewy products, unfortunately, this is a time when you need to use less dewy foundation and concealer. For those with dry skin that need the extra moisture, always use a moisturizer and face oils and milks before applying product, and then try setting your dewy foundation and concealer with a setting powder. In general, matte and powder products are going to be the best to use.

Lip products are also challenging at this time. You may want to bring a lipstick or lip gloss with you and apply it when you take your mask off. If you need to apply lipstick and put on a mask, your best option is a matte liquid lipstick that won’t transfer.

Application Process

How you apply your makeup also matters. Before you put on any makeup, use a gripping primer. These will likely be silicone-based and have a tacky finish. That is going to help makeup stick to your skin instead of your mask.

Before you start blending out your foundation, spray your brush with a long-wear setting spray. This helps makeup lock into place. To further minimize smudge, set any cream products with a powder.

After the Mask

Taking care of your skin and face mask is really important. Having a face mask on for hours each day can take a toll on your skin. You’ve probably heard of people getting mask breakouts. When the mask comes off, you have to take care of your skin. Wash off that makeup and treat your skin with an oil controlling face wash and detoxifying face mask.

Don’t stop there! If you have fabric face masks, wash them daily or weekly. This is going to help keep your skin clear. When all your masks are dirty, keep disposable masks on hand for your wash days.

In the End…

Keeping your mask clean is a process, especially for makeup lovers, but taking these steps will help keep your mask a bit cleaner and make your skin happier. Don’t let masks cramp your style! Rock a mask and your glam.
