THE FACTORY HAIR(ALD) – April 2024

Earth Day

Earth Day 2024

As Earth Day approaches on April 22nd, we’re reminded of our responsibility towards Mother Earth and the significant impact our industry can have on the planet. The beauty industry is known for its glamour and transformational capabilities, but it also contributes significantly to environmental waste, with millions of tons of plastic packaging ending up on landfills each year. 
 
At The Factory, we are very aware of these challenges and are committed to being part of the solution, not the problem. We believe that beauty should not come at the expense of the planet. That’s why we are proud partners with Green Circle Salons, an innovative organization dedicated to making the salon industry sustainable. Green Circle Salons help us recycle and repurpose up to 95% of our salon’s waste, including hair clippings, used foils, color tubes, and excess hair color, transforming what was once waste into something that benefits the environment. The eco fee paid by our guests plays a crucial role in our initiative as well, enabling us to manage and dispose of our waste responsibly. Together, with your support and the help of Green Circle, we are making strides towards a more sustainable future in the industry.
 
 In celebration of Earth Day and our commitment to sustainability, we are excited to offer a 15% discount on all haircare products on 4/19 & 4/20. This is the perfect opportunity to try our eco-friendly brands like Davines, Seven Haircare, and Mr. Smith, which are known for their sustainable practices and clean, responsibly sourced ingredients. By choosing these products, you are making a choice that’s good for both your hair and the environment. 
 
By supporting The Factory, you are not just opting for a beauty service; you are supporting a movement towards a more sustainable and eco-conscious beauty industry. This Earth Day, let’s celebrate our collective efforts to preserve our planet for future generations. 
 
Together, we can create beauty that contributes to a healthier planet.

Q: As someone who lives on a budget, what are your thoughts on using box dyes? What are the dos and don’ts of hair products bought from your typical stores

A: While box dyes can be a budget-friendly option, it’s essential to use them wisely. Here are some of our honest thoughts on this:

Do’s:

  • Research and Choose Wisely: Look for box dyes with good reviews and less harsh chemicals. Not all box dyes are created equal, and some are better for your hair’s health.
  • Follow Instructions Carefully: This ensures you get the best possible result and minimizes damage.
  • Invest in Quality Products: Even on a budget, try to choose the best quality products you can afford. Look for products with nourishing ingredients that suit your hair type.

Don’ts:

  • Overuse: Frequent use of box dyes can lead to hair damage, so try to space out applications as much as possible.
  • Overlap: Overlapping color can easily create a color correction for you. Make sure you are only retouching new growth only.

Alternatives to Box Dyes:

  • Budget-Friendly Salons like The Factory: Some salons offer budget-friendly options or stylists at different price points. It’s worth exploring these to get professional results that align with your budget.
  • Beauty Schools: Visiting a reputable beauty school can be a cost-effective way to get your hair dyed by trainees under professional supervision, often at a lower cost
  • Assistant Programs:Our salon offers an assistant program where trainees need models. This can be a great way to recieve professional services at a reduced cost while helping our assistants gain hands-on experience.

Q: How do you style or attempt to style a 15 month olds hair that’s super thick and curly when it’s nearly impossible because they’re always on the go or fighting it?

A: Styling a toddler’s hair, especially when it’s thick and curly, can be challenging because of their constant movement and limited patience. Here are some tips:

  • Be Gentle: Use a wide-tooth comb or a soft brush to detangle, starting from the ends and working your way up to avoid pulling and discomfort.
  • Keep It Simple: Opt for simple styles like loose braids, ponytails, or letting their curls be natural to minimize styling time.
  • Distraction is Key: Try styling their hair during a calm activity, like reading a book or watching a favorite show, to keep them distracted and still.
  • Moisturize: Use child-friendly, moisturizing hair products to keep their curls hydrated and easier to manage.
  • Be Patient: Understand that it might not be perfect every time and that’s okay. The goal is to keep their hair healthy and manageable.
