What is the Microdermabrasion ?

New services in Avant-Garde Salon&spa !!

the Microdermabrasion

                                                                                                                     

You may have heard the term “microdermabrasion” used in your favorite salon or spa

                                                                                 in Miami

but have wondered what it really is, and what it does for your skin. The following is an

explanation of the procedure and a list of the benefits microdermabrasion has to offer.

 

Microdermabrasion facial

 

 

The term “micro” refers to the tiny crystallized diamond compound that is used during

the procedure. These diamond crystals are moved across the surface of the skin to

gently exfoliate, or remove, dead skin cells, pigmentation or dark spots, blackheads,

whiteheads, and other skin debris. When this top layer of skin is removed, the debris is

vacuumed away, leaving fresh, clean, new skin behind. This process stimulates blood

flow to the skin’s surface, as well as stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production.

For the first time in Avant-Garde Salon and spa , Elisabeth our facialist will perform a

speciality , the Microdermabrasion skin treatment , we are located 155 Miracle Mile in

the heart of Coral Gables , Miami .

305-442-8136

Feel free to contact Elisabeth for a complementary skin diagnostic.

Elisabeth will be happy to answer all your questions and to determine with you the

                                                          process to restaure your skin .

Something to happen
Before you
Before you let me tell you

What was it before you
Otherwise a preamble
A long road to cross
Then everything changes
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my body
Before you remembers
He felt of death

It is struggling
Singing in the desert
For whom it was
All these verses, all these tunes
Before you
Before you let me tell you

What was it before you
A repetition
Words las gestures
Then the explosion
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my arms
Had never hugged
But emptiness and cold

What was it before you
Otherwise a preamble
A long road to cross
Then everything changes
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my body
Before you remembers
He felt of death

What was it before you
Just a huge stage
Too big for me
And then all dance
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my life
Began in the morning

Great Lengths App , Tape Extensions , Miami Hair Salon .

 

 

GL Apps: so smart

 

Fast, invisible, and the very best hair. GL Apps are the first smart extensions. At last there’s hair thickening and hair extensions as smart as many of the things that make our lives sharp, lively and easy.
“GL” stands, of course, for Great Lengths, and for the top quality that Great Lengths offers. “Apps” means Application. What do we mean by that? Quite simply: GL Apps are applied to your hair – without any form of external unit. Quickly, simply and invisibly

As fast as this for complete hair enjoyment!

 

Not enough volume? Hair too short? Not the right sort of look? And on top of all that: Not enough time to get around breathing new life into your hair?No problem! Now there’s GL Apps from Great Lengths.

Just visit Avant-Garde Salon and Spa Greatlengths partner salon .
Select your favourite GL Apps and get them applied to your hair straight away. Just a few easy steps are enough when applied by our extension professionals…
…and your dream of more volume, a new length, or simply a fresh, new hairstyle can come true in the twinkling of an eye.

Extensions must always remain invisible! This should also go for quick extensions. With GL Apps you can be sure that this is indeed the case.

Standard systems use the Sandwich Technique. This sounds a little bit like “thick”, and not really like invisible. At Great Lengths we like to stay smart. And invisible, of course! We call our technique “Invisible Touch”: Its effect is that your own hair is guaranteed to cover the extensions! Both above and below your own hair. And in the middle: GL Apps. Very smart and definitely invisible, just like all the extensions from Great Lengths.

Only GL Apps are this professional!

Extensions from Great Lengths stand for professional hair thickening and hair extensions.

And in addition, so does our GL Apps. What does this mean for you?: The highest hair quality possible! The hair falls in a completely natural way. The colours are brilliant. And the longevity of the GL Apps is between 6 to 8 weeks. Much longer than other standard products.

There’s already a huge range to choose from!

You’re used to the benefits of a large selection from Great Lengths. And we’ve followed the same principle with GL Apps. 35 color nuances in lengths of 20, 30 and 40 cm make up our basic range.

Special requests for lengths of 50 und 60 cm, as well as special colors requests are also possible on request

They’re that simple to reuse!

GL Apps are easy to remove with the Remover Spray.

Following removal, the original hair piece must be  thoroughly cleaned prior to re-applying a new layer of GL Apps film and then these valuable GL Apps can be re-applied to the natural hair at any time. Now that’s something that saves you money and increases the value of these extensions.

So trendy for all fashion-conscious women!

One’s true age is not a question of how many years one has lived. A person is as old as they feel, and age has no bearing upon the amount of energy one may have. Fashion-conscious women no longer allow limits to be themselves.
GL Apps are especially suitable for smart women from 8 to 50+. Or in other words: Do you feel young and fresh enough for a change? Okay! So it’s SHOW-Time for your first GL Apps …

Weaving its way throughevery trend in 2014 is the simple, but compelling, act of mindful living: The idea of attentiveness to the present moment can help clear the clutter in your mind caused by the overstimulation of today’s supercharged world.

This is the year trend that’s on everyone’s mind – from the Dalai Lama to the co-founder of Twitter to your yoga studio down the street. Whether you tap into mindfulness through an app on your smartphone, by turning all your digital devices off, by enjoying a facial or a spa manicure pedicure  or by changing your hair color , it’s your mind that matters.

A healthy mind is the true key to happiness .

We spend so much energy on physical health and hygiene—but we need to spend more on mental hygiene and the ‘hygiene’ of emotion.”

This is one of the biggest movements the wellness industry has ever seen. People are craving (and needing) a reboot of their brains—and the reasons are plentiful. Mindfulness gives us an effective tool to cope with today’s highly stressed-out world. It has been proven to re-wire our brains to become less anxious, happier, more focused and even more creative.

How to wake up with an awesome hairstyle , tips from Your Hair salon in Miami

Your Hair Salon in Miami is giving you a few tips to wake up with awesome hair !

 

Wavy hair

Waking up to good hair without any effort on your part the night before is like accidentally getting the half off on current-season boots at Barney’s—rare, precious and best accepted without question. Waking up to great hair every day with only slightly more intention than none? Totally possible. Our hair stylists in Avant-Garde-Salon and spa share with you  the overnight hairstyles to learn for the best results in the morning

Beach waves

To preserve a bouncy blowout: To maintain the volume of your blowout and avoid any creases, use a soft, foam styling donut (like the Wrap Up) or large, two-inch bobby pins to secure your hair in a loose, high top knot. To wake up to big waves, wrap smooth, almost-dry hair into two donut buns on either side.

 

 

 

Wavy hair

 

 

To wake up with smooth, straight hair: Starting behind the ear, wrap all your hair in one direction around the head to create a flat, smooth surface and secure with large bobby pins where needed. Then tie a silk scarf tightly around your head to keep your hair in place all night.

 

imageTo wake up with beachy, surfer girl waves: Make two French braids on either side of your head. Keep them as loose as possible and braid as far down to the ends as you can to avoid kinks and frizz. For a slightly less textured effect, run a flexible mousse through your hair, then twist medium sections away from your face into five to six buns and secure with bobby pins. You’ll have natural, Gisele waves when you remove the pins in the morning.

To avoid wild bangs: Whether it’s combing and loosely blow-drying or securing them down and to the side with a tissue and a duckbill clip, bangs need to be fixed immediately after washing or they’re hopeless. Run a light-hold matte pomade down the length with a bristle brush for quick taming in the morning.

To deep condition overnight: Start by washing your hair and focusing on the scalp. Using warm water will open up the cuticle and allow the moisturizers to seep into the cortex of each hair strand. Then apply the deep conditioner with a wide-toothed comb to ensure even application. Wrap your hair in saran wrap to keep your sheets clean and your hair together. In the morning, do a cool rinse to lock in the moisturizing ingredients.
