In need of a quick root touch-up or a fresh balayage?! Prior to coming in for your appointment you should ALWAYS wash your hair and make sure it’s fresh and clean! In addition to this, it’s also SO SO important to come with your hair as straight as possible. Read below to find out why...

If you come in with built up product or dry-shampooed roots, the colour will have a hard time depositing over the dry shampoo. It will act as an impermeable barrier and block the colour from fully reaching your roots.  From this you’ll get an unsuccessful root touch-up that will lead to lighter roots and/or blotchy root coverage. This is because the colour will be trying to lift the oils/products instead of your actual hair and in result a maximum lift won’t be achieved. Yes, we all LOVE dry shampoo but just make sure it’s all washed out prior to your appointment.

Furthermore, coming in with your hair straight is just as important… especially if you are coming in for a balayage! Smoothing kinks and curls with a straightener or a round brush while blow drying will help your stylist get the BEST blend of colour. So, come in with your hair FRESH and SMOOTH to avoid discoloured and blotchy roots! Trust me your hair stylist will truly appreciate this!

Quick tip! Try not to wash your hair for 48 hours after your appointment. The longer you wait, the more time the colour pigment will have to soak into the hair cuticle, which will result in longer-lasting colour overall.

O I. O I. O I. OI.

Sick and tired of hunting down the perfect combination of shampoos, conditioners, and oils? Well look no further! Davines has us COMPLETELY covered with their OI line – a true quadfecta of hair products that works miracles when used together. This line is meant for ALL hair types and it will leave your luscious locks to not only look and feel healthy, but more importantly your hair will actually BE healthy. By combining Davines’ shampoo, conditioner, milk/leave-in conditioner, and oil (in that order) your hair will be left soft, shiny and voluminous!

Davines’ OI line is not only paraben and sulphate free but it’s made from a Roucou oil that is filled with beta-carotene, making it jam-packed with antioxidants and resurrecting properties! The OI line is also consisted of ellagic acid – a natural phenol antioxidant that can be found in various fruits and vegetables. But what good do antioxidants do? Antioxidants are beneficial because they will significantly slow down and prevent an oxidation process that is caused by free radicals. If free radicals are left alone do their dirty work they will damage our hair cells and let’s be honest, scientific terminology put aside, NO ONE wants damaged hair!

I recommend this line to ALL of my clients not only because it works wonders but because… *sniff* it smells so damn good! Whether you just love having your hair smell amazing all day every day, or you’re planning on getting close and cuddly with a significant other, the scent is seriously to DIE for. Davines has even made the OI line into a perfume, hand balm and body wash. It’s THAT good!

Combining all four of these products will leave your hair feeling and smelling like you just left the salon… EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. So, ladies let’s all lather, condition, add a little more moisture (because lets try to ignore winter haha ), and lubricate our locks to achieve that salon-look on a daily basis. These products are ALWAYS stocked-up so come stop by the salon today and check them out! 

All the OI products are super concentrated & will last over 6 months for my clients. The oil will also last up to 9- 12 months depending on how often you use it. 

OI Shampoo - $33.50

OI Conditioner - $41.50

OI Milk - $37.00

OI Oil - $50.00

Don’t Pro-CRAST the BRASS

We all know that purple shampoo is every blonde’s best friend because let’s be honest… no one likes a brassy blonde. Don’t you worry though, I have all of my clients covered! I introduce to you – The Service Colour from NOOK. This shampoo is amazing because it’s probably the deepest purple shampoo that you’ll find on the market. When I first started to use this product on my clients I was so shocked to find how deep of a purple it was. The deeper of a purple the ashy your hair will be. The Service Colour purple shampoo is also blended with a grape seed oil which keeps your hair both soft & healthy! This is so important as most purple shampoos are very prone to drying out your hair. You can use this shampoo once a week or every second week depending on how often you wash your hair.  

Now, the number one thing that a client can do wrong is use any purple shampoo too soon after their colour. If you use it too soon you risk the chance of stripping out your toner. This is why you don't want to use your purple shampoo till 2-3 weeks after your colour or when you feel like your toner is washing out. But, how can you tell if your toner is washing out? Your hair will start looking warmer! Everyone holds toners different. Some of my clients can go 3 months without getting a toner, whereas other clients can only go 1 month. This is dependent upon on the porosity of your hair. In addition to using purple shampoo too soon after a colour, clients tend to overuse purple shampoos. If you over use it you can get a muddy or dull look, especially on the ends. If this does happen you can just wash it twice with your normal shampoo or, alternatively, use SOLU – a gentle clarifying shampoo by Davines. This will safely strip out your purple shampoo build up and let you start from scratch. 

Now the main question I get all the time would be “How long do I leave my purple shampoo on.” This depends on what type of purple shampoo you have. The Service Colour purple shampoo I would recommend leaving it on for 3 minutes if you have blonde fine-textured hair. If you have blonde medium-textured hair, leave it on for 5 minutes. Lastly, if you have blonde coarse-textured hair, leave it on for over 5 minutes

My clients that come back for toners in between their colour services are now buying this purple shampoo. I seriously call it a "toner in a bottle", it’s that good. You can come in and pick up this shampoo at my salon for $30.00!




Dear Clients,

I love and value each and every one of you. Without your support and loyalty, I would not be where I am today.

As I look back at 2017, I have grown as a stylist immensely. I have poured a lot of time and energy investing in learning from some of the best artists and educators in the hair industry to make your experience in my chair something unique and valuable. I look forward to 2018 as I continue to inundate and surround myself with the newest techniques and trends.

My goal with each appointment is to provide you with a relaxing experience, healthy hair that looks good until your next visit, and a style that compliments you and helps bring out your best features so that you can feel confident every day.

The value I offer to my clients does not stop in my chair, but goes beyond that. I give each client a result they can take home with them along with lessons on how to style and maintain that look at home day-to-day. I also make myself available to schedule appointments and answer questions outside of normal business hours.

As many of you have seen, this past year was not only a year of personal growth, but also a year of massive business growth. My schedule became increasingly busy and it was, at times, hard to schedule an appointment.

Therefore, starting December 1st, 2017 due to high demand, I will be implementing a Price Revision for my services. I am doing this so that I can spend the perfect amount of time with each client to focus on your unique needs. I also hope to make appointments more available to you as my clients so that you can get the dates you prefer.

Please find the new price list under PRICING on the website.

I don’t say this often enough, but I love and appreciate my relationships with you. Thank you again for your loyalty and support. Committed to giving you my best,

Lauren Kyle

Why having a professional blow dryer is important.

Do you feel like your hair is always damaged but you never straighten it or curl it? The solution to all these problems is right in front of you: it’s your hairdryer itself. No, seriously. That $25 dryer you picked up at the drugstore might be causing you more trouble than you know. A bad hairdryer is one of the most common causes of fluffy, frizzy, damaged hair. It’s clear that upgrading your hairdryer to a professional model is the smart thing to do to keep your hair in tip-top shape. Talk to me at your next visit at Hair By Lauren Kyle. I can give you advice about which professional hairdryer model is right for you. If you don't live in my city you can also read this blog post for more information


The concentrator nozzle that comes with your blow dryer helps concentrate the airflow directly onto the hair you're working on, rather than blowing your strands all over the place. Make sure the concentrator is ALWAYS on your blowdryer. Reason for this is because it protects your hair from getting fried from the metal plate on the end of the blow dryer.
