Tired of lackluster hair color?

Did you know changing your hair color can have all sorts of effects? Psychologists say it can give you confidence, make you feel sexy, and even change the way people treat you.

Stunningly beautiful model and actress Kate Bosworth can attest to that:

“It’s so different when you change your hair color, you’re treated so differently. It’s a very funny experience. It’s fun – I love changing up my hair.”

Our professional staff here at Akari can help you identify your skin tone so that you can choose highlights or change your hair color to complement your beautiful complexion. When it comes to hair color, it’s not just black and white – and we’re here to help!

If you’re confused or can’t quite seem to decide what your skin tone is, our skilled staff here at Akari has the experience to help identify your skin tone and choose the best hair highlights and/or colors for you!

Hair’s How We Help You Choose What Looks Best on You

Our color team here at Akari are truly gifted artists! They’re professionals who know and understand color and skin tones. They take the time to analyze your complexion and eye color– to choose a color that will enhance your natural beauty.

We’re set apart from other salons because we departmentalize. It’s common practice at other salons where just one person cuts and colors your hair. At Akari…

Each client gets to experience a collaboration between their stylist and colorist in order to make their visions come to life!

And because our color team is so close, they inspire each other by discussing the latest techniques and learning from one another. That makes a win-win combination for you!

Hot Right Now: Balayage Hair Color

And speaking about natural beauty, balayage hair coloring is a hair coloring technique that has soared in popularity. It gives your hair a natural look – just like Mother Nature intended– only our expert color team applies the color!

Taken from the French, balayage means to paint or sweep – and that’s just what our master color team does for your hair. They’ll help you choose the color that best complements your skin tone.

We also have amazing new pastel colors available in our Goldwell hair color line. Our stylists can also help you choose products that can help lengthen the life of your hair color.

Summer is the Perfect Time to Air Style Your HairLovely woman with dark shoulder length hair and sunglasses smiling

Now that you’re rocking your new and fabulous hair, how about a little air styling for those tresses?

What? Not use a blow dryer – but have gorgeous hair?

Sure! Remember when you were a carefree youngster, literally throwing your clothes on after a morning shower and running outdoors with your long, wet hair flying behind you?

Those care-free days can return – with the help of our favorite Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It Hair Styler products.

The heat of summer is a perfect excuse to put your blow dryer on the shelf and air style your hair. Air-dried hair is making a comeback. The Bumble and Bumble products we recommend enhance the texture of your hair, adding in a dash of bounce and a plant-based conditioner that softens and moisturizes your hair.

Give your hair a rest from the blast of a hot blow dryer. With Bumble and Bumble products and Mother Nature, your hair will say “Ahhhhhhh!”

Eager for a Hair Transformation?

We’re excited for you, too!

Do something for yourself.

Be bold – be beautiful – and make the lyrics of the popular 1969 song by the Cowsills a reality for your hair:

Darlin’ give me a head with hair, long beautiful hair
Shining, gleaming, streaming, flaxen, waxen
Give me down to there hair, shoulder length or longer…

There ain’t no words for the beauty, the splendor, the wonder of my
Hair, hair, hair, hair hair….
