The holiday season gives everyone the opportunity to try something new, different and often daring with hairstyles. Individuals can re-vamp old looks, or go with something completely opposite of what they have previously been wearing. Since the stylists make the salon, those who are looking to make the most of their hair should visit Amy, Heidi, Stephany, Jamie, Cortney, and Khari at June’s Garage Your Salon.
June’s Garage has been in business for 3 years. Owners and stylists Amy June Sanders and Heidi June Martell were both named after their grandmothers, a fact that made an instant bond when the two met and became best friends five years ago. Proving that friends can indeed go into business together, Amy and Heidi decided to open a salon that provided a trendy, yet comfortable atmosphere for their clients in the Tulsa/Bixby metro area.
Amy and Heidi look for both personality and skill in their stylists. In order to bring on someone new, they first meet with the candidate face-to-face; if the stylist is compatible, they will then request that the applicant bring in a model and demonstrate cut and color skills.
June’s Garage specializes in edgy cuts, color and styles. Each cut, color and style is unique and is made to bring out the best in each client, not only in their hair type, but also those styles that are most flattering to the face.
One of the main trends that is being seen in hair care these days is to avoid over-styling. Over-styled hair can come in the form of excessive teasing, hairspray, hot irons and other factors can result in damaged, stressed hair. A good stylist and the right products will greatly aid in repairing damaged hair; and the technicians at June’s Garage use only Pureology hair products.
The Pureology line employs advanced patented Nano Technology specially designed for color-treated hair. Products include hydrating, volumizing, straightening and smoothing, essentials and styling systems. Stylers offer support, texture and finish; essentials help with healthy hair restoration; hydrating systems aid in replenishing nourishment to the hair, and so on. All products are earth-friendly; created with 100 percent vegan formulas, bio9-degradable and have not been tested on animals.
Some individuals enjoy going to a salon in which the aura is very elite and exclusive; most people, however, prefer a more fun and relaxed setting in which to interact with their stylist. June’s Garage provides just that.
“We offer a laid-back atmosphere,” says Amy. “Our stylists give our clients personalized attention, and all of the stylists in the salon enjoy good friendships, which contributes to the overall atmosphere.”
For the holidays, the girls at June’s Garage are suggesting very bright, funky colors and extras to really give hair that extra pizzazz. “Think vivid red, for Christmas, and perhaps some hair extensions to add that extra ‘pop’ that people just love,” says Heidi.
And since it is the holiday season, it is extra important to book your appointment early. Waxing services are also available by appointment. The hours of operation are Tuesdays and Thursdays, noon to 8 p.m. and Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Call (918) 369-0403 to reserve your spot today. June’s Garage Your Salon is located at 8315 E. 111th Street, Suite 1 in Bixby.
