A Heater That Conditions Hair Too?!

I know, I know.. sounds like a contradiction and almost too good to be true, but Hot Tools has actually made this possible! We just got in the Hot Tools Conditioning Steam Setter, and what better time to get this in than the summer! I’m sure a lot of your clients are battling frizz with the warmer, more humid months, as well as dry and damaged hair from all the time spent at the beach during their summer getaways.

Are you in need of a quick and easy service that will condition your clients hair while giving them those tousled, beachy summer curls they’re looking for? This is definitely the right tool for your salon. The Conditioning Steam Setter conditions as it curls! A warm and moisturizing steam forms the curls, ensuring that hair is never exposed to the damaging, dry heat that more traditional irons have. Who needs more dry heat when your clients are already exposing their hair to the hot summer sun? This also comes with 14 jumbo rollers making this whole process quick and easy – the hair can set in 5-10 minutes. Have a client that’s really on the go? You can achieve “The 30-Second Curl” by blow-drying their hair with rollers to evaporate the moisture faster. My favorite part?!.. it includes an Argan Conditioning Treatment and Thermal Protectant to protect the hair from heat damage. In need of revamping your retail section for summer? These are also perfect for retailing to your clients!

Summer is Almost Here!

Summer is fast approaching, creating good skin care habits early are essential to maintaining healthy skin. Educating your clients to Use sunscreen daily no matter the weather outside is an extremely important habit that should be preached to daily to all clients coming in for any skincare treatment. Consistent use of sunscreen helps slow down the development of wrinkles while maintaining an even skin tone. By wearing sunscreen every day, you are protecting yourself from UVA and UVB rays.


With so many options out there on the market, this should be an essential part of your client’s skincare routine. Visit Pure Spa Direct today to check out some great products we offer.

For those hard to reach places, the BODY BUDDY Applicator is a non-porous, non-absorbent lotion applicator. It provides the extra reach your clients need to easily apply lotion, sunscreen, and sunless tanner to their own back. Made of soft vinyl, it folds neatly to travel.

Mid-Summer Facial Idea: Aloe Vera

Mid-summer can be the perfect time to change up your spa menu! Summer isn’t quite over yet, but it may be a bit too early to start adding Fall treatments. If you’re all out of ideas on spicing up your spa’s offerings to lure your customers in, we have a great Pure Collagen Fiber Face Mask with Aloe Vera that you might want to consider! It’s great for mid-summer, because this mask is infused with aloe which heals dry, sensitive and sun-damaged skin for your clients who have been at the beach all summer long. I’m sure they’re going to want to start healing their summer skin in preparation for fall, and now is the time to add this service.


Aloe vera has been used for quite sometime (centuries, even), and is known as the plant of immortality due to its youth enhancing properties. It is technically a cactus plant. The aloe vera leaf secretes a clear gel that is used to apply topically on the skin. This gel contains minerals, polysaccharides, amino acids and carbohydrates which makes it extremely healing, anti-inflammatory, and supports the regeneration of damaged skin. The mask also contains collagen fiber which helps to retain moisture and create a more youthful appearance. I’m sure your clients will be thanking you once the Fall comes around for healing their sun-kissed skin!

So Long Ombre.. Hello Balayage!

The ombre trend has definitely faded, but there’s a new highlighting trend in town! Say hello to balayage, a popular highlighting technique that’s gathering a lot of attention, especially for Spring and Summer. Instead of the dramatic, contrasting colors that ombre provides, balayage is a subtle, more natural sun-kissed look. Balayage is actually a french word meaning “to swoop” or “to paint,” which creates a softer, beautiful and almost all-natural look. With summer rapidly approaching, a lot of your clients are going to want lighter hair… especially since celebrities like Lana Del Rey and Khloe Kardashian have been seen sporting it!

But are you prepared for the balayage trend? Here at Pure Spa Direct, we just got in the ColorTrak Tools Balayage Board and Brush Set that will have you all set up for this latest hair trend. This brush contains shorter brush bristles for precise coloring, as well as a slightly curved board on 2 side to better suit head shape! You’ll also be quite comfortable performing this service, as the handle allows for stability.


You’ll also need to protect each highlight! Check out our film roll which is specifically for balayage treatments. For all of your salon highlighting needs, please click here, and make sure you’re prepared this summer for your clients looking to get that sun-kissed balayage look!
