Deva Curl Contest Winner

Last month Sizzor Shak Salon and Color Spa had a drawing to win $80 worth of Deva Curl Products. The prize included Deva Curl’s No Poo Cleanser, One Conditioner, Mister Right Curl Revitalizer, AnGel Styling Gel, & a Hobo Bag.

What is so special about the Deva Curl System?

“We took the Poo out of shampoo making it possible to cleanse and hydrate without the use of the harsh detergents that are found in conventional shampoos. Whether your hair is curly, wavy, or chemically processed, there is a Deva product that is right for you! Choose from DevaCurl or DevaCare, and let your hair enjoy the benefits of botanically infused and sulfate-free technology. Depart from the ordinary with our botanically drenched, 100% sulfate free hair care system. Deva removed the harsh, dehydrating detergents that create lather ” which is purely aesthetic and does not clean the hair ” and infused a high concentration of cleansing and moisturizing botanicals that rejuvenate, restore, and respect your hair’s natural order.”

So, congratulations to Holly for winning the Deva products! We hope you enjoy them!!

9 Things To Get You Summer Lovin’

The Shak Girls of Sizzor Shak Salon & Color Spa list their favorite things about summertime!

1. Flirty Skirts
“Fun, flowered, swirly skirts. They are perfect to keep you cool on hot summer days and show off your legs on hot summer nights!”

2. Conditioning & Detangling
“I like to use leave-in conditioner to detangle & condition my hair while I’m out at the lake swimming with friends.”

3. Smooth Skin
Spending my summer at the pool always required daily shaving – until I began waxing. What a difference it has made on my skin … and on my time!

4. Curly Hair
“The new beach wave perms. Everyone who gets them can count on a summer of great hair – even if you go out with your hair wet!”

5. Pretty Toes
“Wearing sandals and showing off my crazy toenails. I love all the different colors and designs I can use to show off my feet!”

6. Fresh Flowers
“Flowers from my garden. Arrangements of hydrangeas, dahlias, and sunflowers mixed with kitchen herbs always delight my family and friends.”

7. Sunglasses
“Wearing my sunglasses all the time! They are the only accessory I need.”

8. Flip Flops
“I just got some pink, orange, and purple flip flops. I can bling them out and jazz up any outfit!”

9. Family Time
“Daylight until 8pm, barbeque, and time with family and friends. These are beautiful things to me!”

Strawberries – The Great Fruit Fix

Did you know your body does not produce Vitamin C on it’s own? Not only is this vitamin important for warding off the dreaded cold, but it also helps your body produce collagen, which keeps your skin firm. Strawberries are a delicious source of Vitamin C, so eat them up!IMG_0928

To make your own beauty treatment, puree 3-4 good sized strawberries along with the juice of one lemon and ½ cup of plain yogurt. Let the treatment chill in the refrigerator, then apply liberally to your face and neck. This facial helps to tighten your pores and lighten skin discolorations that are common from sun exposure. After rinsing, be sure to apply an SPF lotion, as Vitamin C makes you extremely sensitive to UV rays.

The Beach Wave

Tired of your boring, straight hair? Do you hate the old fashioned perms that just don’t give you the “wave” that you want? Sizzor Shak Salon & Color Spa has the answer to your problem. This is not your mom’s out-of-date perm.

beach_wavesA new technology using Blocks instead of the old perm rods give the hair a soft, unique wave and cushion the hair to keep it from frizzing. The blocks are also designed to help hold the perm in during processing instead of leaking off of the hair before it has a chance to soak in.

“This unique application and gentle formula contains no thio, and utilizes natural cysteamine, a natural amino acid, to realign the hair’s internal bonds to create a soft, sensuous wave. This gentle formula is safe for color-treated hair and incorporates Keratin Fusion Restructurizing Serum to infuse hair with silk and human hair keratin amino acids which strengthen, protect and add shine.” (

So, to add shine, volume and wave to your hair, get the Beach Wave- a PERFECT summer style. Call now for your appointment 618-345-6446.

Come in to Sizzor Shak Salon & Color Spa and enter to win $80 of Deva Curl Products.


Botanically infused and always 100% sulfate-free!

What is in the Deva System? The answer is what is NOT in the Deva System. We took the poo out of shampoo, the harsh lathering and dehydrating detergent found in most shampoos that has no inherent value in the cleansing process. We’ve removed all unnecessary chemicals that often play on hair’s vulnerability. We added extra botanical and moisturizing ingredients that cleanse, condition and re-hydrate the hair, more than any products existing on the market today. Each product has it’s own unique blend that will enhance the overall quality of dehydrated hair.

Ask the Shak – May 2010

Dear Shak Staff,

I love to try out different hairstyles, and a few months ago I got about 6 inches cut off of my hair. It is in a long bob, and to be honest, I really don’t like it. It just isn’t “me”. I‘ve thought about getting extensions, but I’m really worried about damaging my hair. What’s your opinion about hair extensions?

Short-cut Sarah


Dear Sarah,

First of all, kudos on trying out different hairstyles! There are so many great looks out there, and your willingness to try something new means that you will never get stuck in a hair rut!

However, every hair maverick will sometimes find themselves in a style that is not quite right, as you are finding out. Your idea about using extensions is a good one. We think you will find yourself really happy if you go this route.

We use the Hairdreams extension line at Sizzor Shak. The hair is soft, shiny, and has great elasticity. It is human hair that has been hand-selected in all colors from all over the world. People with tweezers and magnifying glasses sort each individual hair to give you the best extensions possible!

While most extension lines use a glue-based bond, Hairdreams has a keratin bonding process that is proven to be gentler on your hair. This prevents the damage that you are concerned about, and it also gives you a stronger and more natural look.

We know you are interested in extensions to regain your lost length, but extensions can also be used to provide mass and volume to hair. The thickening effect of Hairdreams is a great bonus for ladies with fine or thinning hair.

Give us a call at 618-345-6446 and we will have one of our stylists provide you with a consultation and help you make a plan to regain your length. You will soon be back to hair that you love… maybe even more than ever before!
