Amy and Kerry Share their "Thankful Thoughts"

I am thankful for my family, friends and the wonderful group of stylists I get to work with.

Every day before I get out of bed, I say to myself, "I am thankful for this day and everything that comes my way."

I am thankful that we live in an environment that allows us to be free and creative, where we can be responsible for our own opportunities.

I'm thankful for my health and happiness. For my family and friends. And for all the people (employees, clients, stylists, technicians, friends, our publicist) who continue to support us.

Amy Kott-Hovland's First Beauty Icon

Who was your first beauty icon? Vidal Sassoon.

Sassoon is an icon in our industry.

He made sense of hair cutting: how to create geometric shapes on a round service.

He invented the bob and became internationally know after cutting Mia Farrows hair for the movie Rosemary’s Baby, it was a very short almost crew shape.

Prior to Vidal, woman would get their hair cut mostly with a razor and had it set for the week; he truly changed the way hair is worn.

I have attended his academies over the years to perfect my craft. We implement his techniques with all of our stylists in our work shops.

Precision cuts are back in fashion and the bob will never go out of style.

Amy's Tips: Healthy Winter Hair

Tis the season for static, brittle hair and split ends. Most of these issues are from lack of moisture because humidity levels are lower and because of the heat in our homes.

Amy Kott-Hovland of Von Anthony Salon shares these
simple tips:

  1. For static, use a dab of hand cream to control the hair.
  2. Try not to shampoo every day so that some of your natural oils will help control the problem.
  3. Use an ionic hair dryer. This will remove the static charges and will dry the hair without taking out too much moisture. Ionic hair driers leave your hair shiny and smooth.
  4. Try spraying static guard on your hair brushes.

Salon Solutions

  1. Get your hair trimmed more frequently to avoid split ends.
  2. We do deep conditioning treatments to keep your hair in optimum condition; these are a must for the client who does not want to cut their hair.
  3. At Von Anthony Salon, we use Shu Uemura Prep Sprays which gives hair proper moisture balance. There are 3 to choose from:
    1. Smoothing for frizzier hair types.
    2. Reparative for color treated.
    3. Moisture for any hair type.

Use these before you blow dry or to moisten hair, in between shampoos; These are perfect for children's hair as well.
