Summer is all fun and sun until you realize you’ve got a sunburned scalp and fried ends. Or, you end up with damp, limp strands because you didn’t check the weather. Yes, just because it’s crop-top season doesn’t mean Mother Nature’s gonna play nice with the forecast. That’s why we’re planning our hair game now for every weather situation she’ll throw at us.

Weather Forecast: Sunny
Hair Problem: Sunburn

We all know to apply a heavy dose of SPF on our face, arms, and legs before hitting up the sun (right?), but there’s one spot we bet you forget all the time, too: your scalp. It’s in plain sight for the sun’s rays, so unless you’re wearing a giant hat all day, every day, you’ll need a hairstyle that can protect your part.

The fix is actually kind of a no-brainer — just don’t part your hair. Pair slicked-back strands with a braid that only goes ’til the middle of your shaft to keep ends looking healthy, and you’ve got a no-fail look for sunny days ahead.

Weather Forecast: Humid
Hair Problem: Frizz

When you’re dealing with sweaty everything and 90% humidity, the last thing you need is frizz and the frustration that comes with it. Yet, somehow, you always end up with both. Well, not if you try a Bantu-knot-inspired fauxhawk. This look not only gets your strands off your sweaty neck (humidity has no mercy), but it also guarantees that you won’t end up with unwanted fuzz the second you step outside.

Weather Forecast: Rainy
Hair Problem: Limp Strands

It doesn’t matter if it’s a light drizzle or a major downpour — rain and hair just don’t mix. We can’t do much about the weather, but we can at least equip you with a braided double-bun hairstyle that’ll keep its shape and structure when Mother Nature throws water your way.

Weather Forecast: Hot
Hair Problem: Sweaty Scalp

When temps start rising, our sweat glands kick into overdrive. Sorry, TMI, but you all know it’s true — when have your shirts not been soaked through this season? That’s why we’re game for anything that (a.) will keep our strands away from our already-sweaty faces and necks and (b.) won’t make us sweat even more as we’re doing it. Enter, this sleek, elevated pony that gets to the root of things.

Hi ladies and gents! It’s Leah here. If you know my salon and my philosophy, then you know I can think of way more than 10 reasons why you should be at La La Luxe…but for those of you who are curious about my salon and why La La Luxe has created such a buzz in the 5+ years the salon has been open, then read on!


10. We care about your visit.  From the minute you walk in to the minute you walk out. We treat all of our clients like family and we want you to feel that way.

9. One of our biggest priorities is that as soon as you sit in our chair, you feel comfortable. If you’re not a hundred percent comfy from start to finish, let us know! That’s what we are here for.

8.  Our stylists are here to help you with any hair concerns and needs.  No challenge is too big and we are pros at correcting color or helping to mend over-processed or “troubled” hair.

7. We use TOP-OF-THE-LINE hair-color to ensure that the integrity of your hair is never compromised. Plus, many of our stylists are regional educators for the color lines that they use at La La Luxe. We bring an entirely new meaning to the word “expert”.

6. Let’s face it: A salon is not an assembly line…you are not a product that passes through on the conveyor belt…We want to cater to the individual needs of everyone that comes to our salon.

5. Our stylists are beyond up-to-date in this industry. We mean it. We are on the cutting edge of fashion and style and we are constantly taking classes to maintain a level of professionalism and expertise that is beyond what you would expect from a salon in RI (and anywhere!)

4.  We carry and recommend a broad selection of products that you can’t find in CVS, Target, Sephora or anywhere else a product should not be!

3. We are easy to get to, easy to get IN to, and easy to stay in…We are 5 minutes off the highway, we offer online booking which means you can get an appointment in one click, and we have free WIFI (and a glass of wine, tea, coffee or cold water if you’d like). We also accommodate walk-in’s and call-ahead’s for those last minute colors, trims, blowouts, up-do’s (or five minutes to yourself.) Come in and make yourself at home.

2. We are mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, uncles, friends, pet-lovers, caregivers, business-owners, musicians, artists, writers, travelers, creators, and passionate hard-workers…In other words, we are just like you. People like YOU are why we are in this business. Making you feel beautiful from the inside out is our main goal. Period.  You deserve to feel good.

And the number-one reason you should be at La La Luxe salon? Have you really looked at your hair lately? Need a refresher? Need to move into 2015? Dying to try something new but your current stylist is bored? Give us a shot. Trust me…you will be glad you did. As always, la la love your hair.
