Sensitive Scalps Rejoice: milk_shake Hair Color is Here

Place Vendome now offers the industry changing milk_shake Hair Color. Sharon, Lisa and the other color technicians at Place Vendome have tested the product and absolutely love it.  Sharon says:

I particularly love it because it doesn’t cause the discomfort in sensitive scalps that other ammonia-heavy colors create. We think that this will be life-changing for people with asthma and allergies. Even pregnant women that have chosen to continue coloring their hair will appreciate this product.

Many expectant moms get more sensitive to chemicals and smells when they are pregnant, and milk_shake hair color’s scent does not have a “chemical” smell.  It’s pleasant, something the chemists that created the product are very proud of.  We look forward to getting our customer’s feedback as we use this product at the salon!

Restore and Replump Damaged Hair Without the Weight!

L’oreal Pro Fiber is a 3-step system that helps damaged hair. Thanks to years of research and multiple patents, L’Oréal’s Research laboratories have developed their most sophisticated technology to date: the APTYL 100 molecular complex. By combining Aminosilane with a special cationic polymer, L’Oréal Research has paved their way to a new innovation in long-lasting hair care.


What are the 3 steps?

Step 1: (in salon) The hair is shampooed with the appropriate Pro Fiber shampoo for your hair, then a pro fiber concentrate is applied.

Step 2: (in salon) Your hairdresser will apply the renew mask to the hair and massage it in using a layering technique. This gives the hair a renewed look.

Step 3: (at home) To prolong the smoothing effects of the Pro Fiber, use the corresponding shampoo, and conditioner and/or mask. Use the recharge booster every 4th shampoo instead of mask or conditioner. Leave in for 5 minutes, then lather, and rinse carefully.

That are the different levels? 

Pro Fiber Revive:

Level 1, used for lightly damaged hair.



 Pro Fiber Restore:

Level 2, used for moderately damaged hair.



 Pro Fiber Recover:

Level 3, used for severely damaged hair.

Safe Keratin Application at Place Vendome

Safe Keratin Application Starts with Purified Air

There has been a lot of press about the safety of Keratin treatments. Overall, keratin hair straightening treatments are relatively safe, but there is a real health hazard associated with the inhalation of the fumes when the keratin solution is being applied. We wanted to be able to continue offering the Keratin hair treatment to our customers, while keeping everyone safe from these dangerous fumes.

Place Vendome is proud to confirm that we have installed the Aerovex Systems. This air purifier is a chemical source capture system that will clean our air from the dangerous fumes produced at the salon. This was an important decision that will help bring cleaner air to our salon to keep our clients safe.

Aerovex Systems’ Chemical Source Capture System is a specialized ventilation system designed to absorb and remove Keratin Treatment formaldehyde vapors from the air.
