With school starting today in Fauquier County, we were nostalgic about the Salon Emage Style Team’s last visit to school in March of this year. Your Salon Emage Style Team did hair and makeup for Auburn Middle School’s production of Leader of The Pack – The Ellie Greenwich Musical. It was a blast working with all these talented kids (and there a BUNCH of them!).

Aveda Essential Oils

No Comments

Guest Blogger – Alissa Jones

“Aromatherapy” is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.     In Aromatherapy Massage, these oils are added to the body butter used to enhance the overall massage experience.  We call these natural oils, “Essential Oils.”

It is also widely believed that the inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils stimulates brain function. Essential oils are absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing. One example of this is Lavender, which is well known for promoting a sense of relaxation.

Some ideas for using relaxing Lavender oil in your home:

-Add to bath water for soft, smooth, aromatic soaking.

-Dab some on a tissue and place between pillow and pillow case for calm and restful sleep throughout the night.

-Wipe lightly over light bulbs so when the lights are on, the aroma emanates through the room.

As you may know, SALON EMAGE DAY SPA is an official AVEDA hair salon, and we are proud to announce that we have now added Aveda Essential Oilsto our product collection.  Beginning immediately, the same oils being used in massage in the spa are now being offered to our clients so they can experience some of the many benefits at home.

Make an appointment today for an “Aromatherapy” Massage and we can further discuss the many benefits and uses of Essential Oils.

I look forward to seeing you soon!

Have a blessed weekend!

Salon Emage Day Spa would like to introduce you to our newest stylist, Nicole Champ.  Nicole graduated one of the top ten students in her class from Paul Mitchell The School in the spring of 2012.  Being a Warrenton native, it was an easy decision for her become a stylist at Salon Emage Day Spa.

Nicole’s favorite hair lengths to work with are mid length to longer hair and considers her specialties to be Keratin, hair straightening, extensions and color.   She has absolutely fallen in love with the new fall Aveda Neo Goth color line and believes going dark all over, or lowlights are the must do trends for fall.

Nicole appreciates the diversity of being a stylist.  Each client wants a different look which allows each day to be a different adventure!

Nicole loves getting eyelashes and massages.  In her spare time she loves spending time at the beach with her fiancée.  Her favorite products are Moroccan Oil and Shina Mist and if she could, she would bring back the black underneath platinum blonde on top hairstyle.

Melanee Montalvo, Owner of Salon Emage Day Spa

By Contributing Blogger Brittany Cooper

You know Salon Emage but do you know Melanee Montalvo, owner of Salon Emage Day Spa. Melanee has been

Salon Emage Day Spa Owner, Melanee Montalvo

working her magic on hair for over 25 years and has owned Salon Emage Day Spa since 2000.

Melanee has not only worked with celebrity hairstylist Alexandre de Paris but she also has quite the background of celebrity clients including the actress Salma Hayek, Cal Thomas syndicated columnist and author, Courtney Robinson Reporter WJLA/News Channel 8, and beloved Fauquier author Susan McCorkindale. Melanee’s achievements do not stop at celebrity clients as she has also done quite a bit of work for television and fashion shows; one of her latest achievements includes styling hair for the Union of Angels commercial. She has also styled hair for an editorial photo shoot for Glamour magazine, Susan McCorkindale’s book promotional video, and numerous runway including: Trouvials Vintage Fashion Show at Twilight Polo, Twilight Polo’s Opening Night “Must Haves” Fashion Shows, and the American Cancer Society’s Silhouettes of Spring Fashion Shows.

When Melanne is not hard at work making sure everyone has fabulous hair, she and her salon are busy giving back to the community. Two organizations they make sure to give to each year are the Fauquier SPCA and the American Cancer Society. There is a lot that can be said about the way the salon gives back. Melanee does not just write a check to a charitable group, she has the salon create events which get the whole community involved. Melanee decided to start a Pooch Shampoo at Salon Emage Day Spa which is held each August. Community members bring their dogs to be washed by salon stylists; the money raised benefits the Fauquier SPCA. In October, in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, the salon has Pink Power Parties to give client’s pink extensions with all proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. The salon also hosts Bras for a Cause asking community members to create bras which are then voted on by the public. This year alone over $2000 was raised in the month of October by Salon Emage Day Spa through Pink Hair for Hope, Shop for a Cure and Bras for a Cause. Through the year, Melanee shows her care and

Melanee Montalvo, Kylie Crane & Sharon Crane

concern for the community she grew up in by supporting a variety of causes.

Melanne’s achievements stop here, but this blog does! Call the salon to make an appointment with Melanee and let her make your hair look like a celebrity’s. Salon Emage Day Spa is located at 51 East Lee Street, Warrenton, Virginia by phone at 540.341.4052 and on the web at www.salonemage.com.

By Contributing Blogger Brittany Cooper

The stocking where hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nickolas would soon be there….you would fill them with great beauty buys!

Salon Emage Day Spa has your stocking best buys. These three items are sure to make her stocking smile:

OPI Best Minis (Photo Credits: opi.com)

1. OPI Best of the Minis

Our favorite nail polish OPI has come out with an assortment of 10 mini nail polishes featuring their best selling colors of all time. Don’t be fooled into buying them in a set and dealing with a color that may not be a favorite; we are selling them individually. Best of all these are a steal at only $3 per bottle.

Colors include:

Alpine Snow– opaque and great for do it yourself French manicures.

Bubble Bath-fabulous semi-opaque pink and also great for do it yourself manicures.

Tickle My Fancy-y– great neutral color.

Strawberry Margarita– fun bright girly girl pink.

Cajun Shrimp– coral type color.

Big Apple Red –vibrant red.

I’m Really Not A Waitress– shimmery rich deep burgundy red.

You Don’t Know Jacques!– deep mushroom color with touches of plum.

Russian Navy – great deep royal blue color that changes color with light. In some lights it shows a multitude of different color with shimmery effects.

Lincoln Park After Dark– an amazing black plum color that will go with any outfit or occasion.

And don’t forget you can come by the salon anytime to check them out for yourself.

Earthly Body Oil and Lotion (Photo Credits: earthlybody.com)

2. Earthly Body Travel Size Hand and Body Lotion and Glow Oil

Another great stocking stuffer is our Earthly Body Travel Size Hand and Body Lotion and Glow Oil! We carry  four scents at the salon: Tropicale (coconut/islands), Squeezed (grapefruit/citrus), Morrocan Nights (spicy), and Skinny Dip (vanilla/cotton candy)  The travel size lotion and oil will make a great addition to any stocking for only $5 for the lotion and $8 for the oil.

What makes this product magical is its ability to penetrate and protect the skin with Hemp Seed Oil and twelve other pure botanicals. By combining Hemp Seed Oil, Hemp with Jojoba, Shea Butter, and Argan Oil from Morocco it creates a botanically-infused silky lotion that really softens your skin. Since it is so nutrient rich, it goes on silky-smooth and absorbs into the skin without a greasy after effect.

Ever considered giving up your lotion because you used it and your skin was still dry? Earthly Body’s best-selling product is their Glow Oil which utilizes the best skin care oils available: Hemp Seed, Coconut, Soy, Apricot, Avocado, Jojoba and Vitamin E and combines them into a skin care spray that will keep your skin feeling soft all day. This product can be used as a lightweight massage oil, bath additive, or everyday moisturizer.

3. JAPONESQUE® Professional Touch Up Tube Set

It is important to touch up makeup throughout the day or night. However, trying to carry around the brushes to keep your makeup flawless can be hard. The JAPONESQUE® Professional Touch Up Tube Set contains five brushes essential for keeping makeup flawless throughout the day or night. The Touch UP Tube Set comes encased in a sleek tube designed for portability and protection. This unique set includes a foundation brush, a lip brush, two eye detailers and a blush/powder brush. All brushes feature a short matte wand for superior control. Touch Up Tube Sets can be purchased in silver, pink or red. This is a great set ideal for both the purse and the desk drawer. With a great price of $20 be sure to stuff her stocking with two.

All of these products are available at Salon Emage Day Spa. We look forward to helping you at the salon. Merry Christmas!
