Illuminate and frame the face with haircolor!!!!

Illuminate and frame the face with haircolor contouring using Aveda’s Eclipting color service, where an interplay of shadow and light is personalized.

While using makeup for contouring the face has been at the beauty forefront in highlighting and shadowing facial features, Aveda is now debuting its Eclipting color service in its Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection, Folklôr. Eclipting keeps hair darker around the face to create a frame, while a dusting off fine weave foils on top creates a seamless blend of color and style. Like an eclipse reframes the sun and the moon, the Eclipting haircolor technique uses Aveda haircolor to customize for any color, cut and lifestyle.

“Facial features are key considerations when it comes to haircolor,” says Ian Michael Black, Aveda global artistic director, hair color. “We’re using haircolor to create subtle shading placed under a fringe and around the face to gently contour the guest’s natural and distinct beauty. The result is customized haircolor that serves a purpose of emphasizing and celebrating the guest’s individual beauty.”

“Foklôr is the celebration of stories that are represented globally and translated down to a local level through folktales and a yearning to live life to the fullest,” says Antoinette Beenders, Aveda global creative director. “With modern cuts and colors to inspire, these looks are about being free and a student of culture with the desire to keep growing and exploring, while remaining mindful of our traditions of the past.”

The cuts of Folklôr feature a twist-and-cut technique that allows for silhouettes to have a more natural-looking appearance with chunkiness and texture. Sections are twisted as they’re cut, replicating the natural texture and free movement of traditional fibers and fabrics.

“Hair of today is all about a natural moveable texture with a bit of a raw edge,” says Ricardo Dinis, Aveda global artistic director, hair cutting. “With this twist-and-cut technique I twist sections before slide-cutting downward to enhance hair’s natural texture. It keeps the hair from looking overly polished.”

The makeup palette includes satiny sheens of textured gold and silver, and richly matted purples and greens.

“This collection is a gorgeous tapestry of texture and vivid hues with customized application,” says Janell Geason, Aveda global artistic director, makeup. “Folklôr tells the story of an artistic bohemian who’s lived a rich life and must pass on her wise stories as she travels throughout the world on her artistic journeys. This wisdom is seen through the eyes which are played up with texture and shades for looks that smolder.”

Contemporary Bouffant!!!

Pre-set hair with a large barrel iron and Pure Abundance Hair Potion at the roots.

Cool hair to set and brush out with a wide tooth comb.

Spray Aveda Air Control over lengths of the hair.

Over-direct hair toward the center and back-brush the base to build the most height on the surface of the hair.

Direct hair loosely with a hairpin toward the crown of the head, secure with a sewing motion.

Release tendrils around the face.

Finish with Air Control.

Stylist Tip: Less is NOT more! When it comes to back-brushing mid-lengths and ends build maximum volume — it’s easier to smooth out than add more in already textured hair.

How to style your hair this Summer!!

There’s nothing simpler and cleaner than putting your hair in a classic bun for the summer. Try a relaxed chignon for that cute effortless, casual look.

This summer bun is one of our favorites so you can be pool and barbecue-ready this weekend!

Tip: You can make it as exaggerated as you'd like, depending on how much you tease.

Loose bun (best for dry hair):

- Put hair in a high ponytail.

- Tease the ponytail.

- Gather hair and start wrapping around elastic and then pin in place.

Tight bun (best for wet hair):

- Put wet hair in a ponytail at the mid-head or at the low part of neck.

- Wrap wet hair around elastic.

- Pin into place.

The Carlsbad City Library on Dove Lane reopened!!!

The Carlsbad City Library on Dove Lane reopened on Saturday, June 25, with a community appreciation event including a reopening ceremony, tours, live music, children’s activities and more.

Banging Bangs!

Baby bangs will help you relive your 90s grunge days. These bangs keep making their comeback throughout the years, and this year is no different. Unlike your standard fringe that covers your eyebrows, these sit in the middle of your forehead. These tend to grow out fast, so keep up with them by trimming every few weeks, or just let them grow into long bangs. Long bangs hit just below your eyebrows. These bangs look great, but they can be a little tricky to style in a way that is not outdated or just plain in your face. You can sweep them to the side or let them lay naturally on your face, but always make sure to blow-dry your bangs and not let them air dry!

Trendy Bobs!

If the warm weather is nudging you to make a drastic chop to your hair, go for a stylish bob. Choppy bobs are a popular take on your standard A-line bob. Stylists add dimension with layers and jagged ends to achieve a choppy and edgy look. The purpose of this kind of bob is to add texture to dull and flat hair. Adding in some highlights or lowlights also accelerate the trendiness of this cut. But if you are not feeling as adventurous, long bobs, or lobs, are also trendy this year. Unlike bobs, that typically lay above your shoulders, lobs usually lay right at your collarbone. This style is basically just shorter hair with long layers. These trendy haircuts look great either straight or loosely curled.

When it comes to hair color trends...

....There’s literally never a dull moment. From bronde to balayage, this past year so far we saw a fair share of amazing tones, but as we move into spring.... what will be next?

Trends can start with people on the street wearing an intriguing look that others want to replicate and other hair color trends are celebrity driven — a star can wear a new look and it will catch fire, influencing women and men alike nationwide to recreate the look as their own. Color trends can also begin on the runways at New York, London, Paris and Milan. These editorialized hairstyles provide inspiration and are interpreted in a wearable version for every day.

Whether you want a new look or just a slight update, these hair color trends 2016 are pegged as the next big thing.

Get ready to book your next appointment at Pistachio Cut & Color Bar and have fun!

Oscars Hair Achievements

Here at Pistachio we were in all anticipation of the beautiful Hair, Makeup and Fashion of this years Academy Awards don't get us wrong the hair and makeup at the Oscars is always good. There's always much to swoon over. But a little confession.... This is the one night of the year when our bar for beauty is set almost unfairly high. We don't just want to see the usual red-carpet prettiness and perfection. Our gut feeling, though, was that 2016 was going to be an on-point year we weren't wrong. Come along with us as we show our favorite hair and makeup looks of the 2016 Oscars red carpet!!!! They were all beautiful!!!!! Congrats to all the nominees and winners!!!!!!

Follow this amazing step by step put together by the Aveda team!!!

Stop by Pistachio for your haircut and style today!!!!

1. Exfoliate your scalp once a week with Aveda Men Pure-FormanceTM Exfoliating Shampoo. Shampoo and condition scalp every day with Aveda Men Pure-FormanceTM Shampoo and Aveda Men Pure-FormanceTM Conditioner.

2. Prep: Towel-dry hair, leaving in some moisture. If hair is too dry, it's difficult to apply styling products evenly. If the hair is too wet, it dilutes the product and compromises performance.

3. Style: Emulsify a small amount of Pure-FormanceTM Pomade between the palms of your hands. Massage into the hair from roots-to-ends, starting in the back where it's thickest. Stroke and shape the hair with your hands until you get the defined shape you want.

Let air dry.

4. Finish: To finish your ritual, use Aveda Men Pure-FormanceTM Aroma Spray, with certified organic essential oils of spearmint, vetiver and lavender. Mist it on or spray a little on your chest or forearms.

Golden Globe Hair Secrets Revealed!

2016 Golden Globe winner, Lady Gaga, looked stunning with an old Hollywood glamour look on the red carpet of this year's Golden Globe Awards. AVEDA shares how to get Lady Gaga’s red carpet look.

1. Start with clean towel dried hair. First apply Smooth Infusion style prep smoother from root to tip and comb through for even distribution.

2. Next, spray Aveda's volumizing tonic at the roots to create big voluminous hair.

3. Then, apply Confixor from your tips to roots and comb through for even distribution.

4. Next, section the hair for blow drying. Using a medium round brush, drying with an up and around movement to get full volume.

5. Using a 1-inch curling iron, take 1-inch sections of hair and curl the hair all back and away from the face. Take a velcro roller and set each curl after you curl only using medium to small curlers. Allow rollers to set and cool. After, 15-20 minutes remove curlers.

6. To finish, brush the hair out with a sable bristle brush. Use Aveda's Air Control hair spray to keep your waves and curls in place but still maintain a soft bouncy look.

New Hair for the New Year!!!

There's something about entering a new year that makes us want to run in and see a hairstylist needing a new look. After the confetti falls, the ball drops, and every last bit of Champagne has been downed, one major question always seems to appear in our heads: "What haircut and color will help me take on the new year with a brand new attitude for success?"

Texture ....

Everyone's texture has the potential to look stellar! You just need the right cut and tools and the lesson on how to recreate it at home!!

Short Hair ....

Short hair is poised to have a major moment in 2016!

Geometric Hair ...

Geometric shape haircuts are big this year with proponent of bold shapes and eccentric lines. While a triangular shape may be something we're typically told to stay away from, these eye-catching contours are clutch for women with natural-textured hair!


Big blunt bangs as one of the major trends for next year.

Happy 2016!!!!

What Changes Our Hair Texture...

No one is exempt from a bad hair day and for all your efforts, it may not even be within your control. Whether you’ve got virgin hair or it’s been chemically processed to death, your mane is guaranteed to change its texture—be it from straight to wavy to curly or the other way around—as many as seven times throughout your life....

Hormones. This is probably the #1 culprit people point their fingers at for any hair woes—and for good reason. If you notice any drastic changes, you might want to see a doctor.

Health & Diet. A poor diet does a lot more than just go to your gut—it affects your skin and hair, too. To be its healthiest, your mane needs zinc, biotin, iron, vitamin E, and omega fatty acids found in hair-friendly foods including salmon, dark leafy greens like spinach and kale, eggs, avocados, and oysters.

Aging. This one shouldn’t be a surprise, seeing as we’re familiar with aging’s affects on our skin. As we grow older, the oil glands on our scalp produce less sebum, resulting in coarser-feeling hair. And once you hit your forties, you can pretty much expect your mane to appear thinner and less voluminous.

Medication. Anything you put in your body has an impact on how it operates, but that’s especially true for medication—even commonly used ones like painkillers, acne treatments, beta blockers, and prescriptions for depression and blood pressure.

Chemical Treatments. Unlike the aforementioned causes, you have the most control over this one—but be warned that even standard chemical treatments such as bleaching, coloring, and perming come with unanticipated side effects. Chemical color treatments can vastly change your hair’s structure since anything that opens the hair cuticle without resealing it leaves your texture susceptible to change. A finishing glaze or gloss treatment can help with that last step, as well as using frizz-fighting hair products with silicone.

Now that Halloween is over...

The family and work holiday get-togethers are going to begin!!!! If this time of year is stressful then make sure it have a plan of action for your self care!!!!

Below are 5 things you can do to cope during the holidays....

Make sure to stop by Pistachio Cut and Color bar so we can help you feel better about your hair....when your hair looks good everything feels better!!!!

...also check out Stress-Fix by Aveda....

~Positive self-talk. The narrative in your head can aggravate or even initiate stress. Replace thoughts of, “I can’t do this” or, “This always happens to me” with, “I’ll try my best” and, “Things will work out.”

~Emergency stress-stoppers. Sometimes you need a quick save! Break a negative pattern or avoid making a small situation worse by counting to 10 before you speak, walking away from the negativity, going out for fresh air, getting into the slow lane while driving or tackling one little piece of an overwhelming project. If being late stresses you out, set your watch 10 minutes ahead—and don’t look at your phone!

~Enjoyable activities. Although it’s great if you love doing something physical, such as taking a bike ride or going on a hike or even getting your hair done, for you the joy might be found in reading a book, cooking, painting, hanging out with friends or listening to music.

~Daily relaxation. Practice deep breathing and positive visualization and engage in meditation or yoga.

Be safe these next 2 months and take care of you!!!!

BOUNCY "Thoroughbred' tail LOOK....

Lets face it...we live in Southern California and casual is always in style no matter what you are doing.... so for those of us that are still with longer hair its always a challenge to find a fun style that can help keep our necks cool...Caroline found this higher placed bouncy thoroughbred tail comes in very handy and is easy and to do!!!!!!

The last person that created a ponytail this perfect was a toy designer at Mattel on a Barbie Doll !!!!!

To get a similar effect in real life Caroline found the this technique below works quite well for most hair textures!!!!

After you have washed and conditioned your hair with the Aveda Collection of your choice, spray some Aveda Volumizing Tonic on damp hair, rough-dry it, and then curl your entire head with a one-and-a-half-inch curling iron. After apply Pure Abundance Hair Potion Volumizing through your roots and back-comb them, then pulled all the hair into a ponytail at the back of the head. To get the lifted tail, grab each side of the ponytail and pull them apart to tighten the elastic, then tease the underlayers.

Finish the look with Air Control Hair Spray (quick tip - hold the can 6-8 inches from dry hair, directed away from eyes, and spray in short bursts) Layer this product to build more hold & this look will stay all day!!!!

Hottest Hair Colors for this Fall !!!!!

Here are a few of the top color trends for the upcoming season according to the September issue of Marie Claire.


While bronde is a serious contender for the most-talked-about hue of summer, this low-maintenance, soft blend of blonde and brunette is primed to be huge for fall.

~Single-Process Brunette....

Even with the seemingly endless list of color techniques that exist today, stars won't soon forget the power of a singe-process dye job—particularly in a blackish-brunette hue

~Burnt Auburn....

Auburn hues are always a shoe-in for fall, but this season, due in large part to moody, coppery curls, a darker, more dramatic approach is the way to go.

~Candy Dip-Dye...

*All* the stars are going pink... Both sweet and a little punk rock, pastel dip-dyes will be an unexpected pop of pastel during the colder months.

Stop by Pistachio Cut and Color Bar for a free color consultation today and let us help you transform your hair.

Aveda's Light Elements

Aveda's Light Elements Defining Whip is one of Chelsea's favorite all purpose products to use for styling. Its light weight texture and medium hold make it perfect for those trendy men's cuts we keep seeing everywhere. It has a pliable hold that allows you to keep hair in place without a sticky or stiff feeling. I even use it on my women's cuts! Great for giving separation and texture to beachy waves or keeping bangs stunningly styled all day long, Defining Whip is one of Aveda's miraculous Light Elements product you won't be able to stop using.
To use properly....Apply a small amount to palms and rub together to emulsify. Work evenly through dry hair with fingertips to create medium hold and separation.

Layer more as needed to eliminate static or flyaways without adding weight.

Transformation... Ombre to the Pink!!!!

Read about Casie's incredible transformation Using AVEDA!
"This has been a long process... starting in May I decided to transition my hair from an ombre, to an all over blonde.

I started by using a professional color remover, and then AVEDA's Enlightener a couple of times. I got multiple haircuts, and used AVEDA products to keep my hair healthy.

It took several processes over time get it to the perfect shade of blonde using Aveda's Enlightener and Extra Lifting Creme.

I kept that for a month or two then decided that I was bored so I applied a mixture of Magenta, Pastel Pink and Pink to my hair, all over to achieve the look I have now."

Cant wait to see what this amazing stylist does next!!!!!!!!!

Three Steps and ... Wow!

Hello everyone!

Casie just wanted to share this quick transformation that she did this week! If you are ready to change your look and have fun... we hope this can help inspire you!

"This was a 3 step process but totally worth it....

* Step one: Began to remove the previous color

* Step 2: Applied enlightener to all of the hair until we reached the desired color shade.

* Step 3: Then sectioned the hair with triangular partings to apply a color blocking technique that makes all the colors blend together. Which is the fun part!!!

Finished with a blow dry and style with a flat iron and fun braid."

This color application can be done with any color!

Come by for a free consultation to see what fun colors we can do for you!!!

In-Between Visits Hair Care Tips!!!

Lucy at Pistachio shares her recipe for hair care success between hair care appointments.... "To keep hair healthy between salon visits I like to custom prescribe an at-home wellness plan. I always tell my clients that we will take care of their hair together...I will do 50% of the work at the salon with beautiful dimensional color, haircuts, and treatments, but the rest is up to the client to do at home by using the appropriate Aveda home care products starting with the correct shampoo and conditioner for their hair. I also advise my clients to apply a shot of cold water after a warm/hot shower to prevent the color from fading.... as well as not to use thermal styling tools set about 350 degrees, Anything beyond that is unnecessary and just damages the hair"

HUMID... Hair....AHHHHHHH!!!!

Even though this HUMID weather can cause straight hair to go flat, and curly hair to expand and frizz as the day progresses... there are several things you can do to help your hair!
1. Hydrate beforehand...If your vacation takes you to tropical parts this summer, get ahead of the hair curve by prepping for the climate change before you touch down. Do a conditioning treatment and drink lots of water before you go.
2. Keep it dirty...sweat-inducing weather may send you straight to the shower. In humid weather, it's easier to style your hair when it has a little natural oil in it, so don't wash your hair the day of an event.
3. Pick the right products... When styling hair, keep it moisturized by reaching for the Aveda product best for you and your hair, we can help!!!!
4. Don't overdo it...Hair doesn't get more glam with the more product used. In fact, the opposite is true. Be careful of applying too much product to the hair, this can weigh down fine hair and make it limp.

Intensive Muti-Tonal Hair Color!

Ali went from all over blonde hair color to a rich multi tonal intensive combination of deep Merlot and Copper tones. This multi dimensional color was done with different color application techniques. We started with an Ombre application followed with a Flamboyage technique for the top of head. This gives us different illumination of color through all the hair. To finish this amazing look we applied an all over color for shine and richness. Multi-tonal color can be done on Blondes, Brunettes, and Reds...as well as any texture!!

Tips for Summer Frizzy Hair

San Diego summer time is all about low-key beauty. If humidity and heat has you hiding your hair for fear of a frizzified coif follow these 4 tips...
1. Embrace natural texture: Define your waves or curls with products like a Aveda's Be Curly Curl Enhancer or Light Elements Defining Whip.
2. Protect hair from UV rays: Apply Aveda's Sun Care Protective Sun Veil will protect and add moisture and shine.
3. Water it down: Before diving in that pool, wet down your hair and work in Aveda's Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair that contains protein to maintain shine, moisture and elasticity.
4. Accessorize: Summer is great for casual updos like volumized ponytails, sultry side braids and chic chignons. We can show you how to use them properly..

Hair Solutions for Women on the Go

Women know the reality of having to juggle a million things at once. There’s early morning reports, conferences, phone calls, general errands, hopefully some time for the gym, meals to cook, laundry, family, pets...etc...!!!!!! We have some great ideas for you to try between monthly salon visits:
1) Use a dry shampoo to remove any grease left over from the day before.Spray it and comb it out.
2) Running late? Tie your hair up in a bun and wear your favorite hair band.
3) Blow-dry just your roots if you are in a hurry. It adds bounce and makes limp hair look fabulous in a jiffy.
4) Back comb your hair and wear a ponytail - a messy one. Backcombing gives flat hair a refreshing break.

Teaching our stylists numerous cutting techniques and variations ensures that our clients get the customized look they want. Our program also teaches the latest hair color techniques and technology to ensure that the one-of-a-kind results never fail to impress.
A Great New Location
Located a short drive to the west from our current location, the new Pistachio will be the latest addition to this established neighborhood shopping center that’s anchored by The City of Carlsbad’s renowned Dove Library, the U.S. Post Office, Cinépolis Cinema, and the Aviara Vons. A large lounge area is located right next to our studio and served by the ever-popular La Costa Coffee Roasting. For your convenience, a professional Color Nails salon is located right next door.

Step 2: Part your hair deep to one side and wrap two-inch sections of hair around a one and a half inch curling iron. Hold the curling iron vertically, ignore the clamp, and stop just below the roots. Twist the front sections towards your face and and alternate directions throughout the rest of your hair so it doesn’t fall into a perfect wave pattern.
Step 3: To help hair set, roll each curl up and clip them at the scalp and let it sit for 20 minutes.
Step 4: Unclip the hair and gently brush to one side. Spray all over with Eufora’s Elevate Finishing Spray.

The How-to for a High & Sleek Ponytail

A step by step tutorial for a sophisticated, face-lifting ponytail.
Step 1: While hair is still damp, use about a quarter size of Euforas Sculpting Styling Glaze, work it through your hair and blow dry until your hair is completely dry.
Step 2: Thoroughly flat iron your hair to get it smooth and straight.
Step 3: Brush your hair straight back and fasten it just below the crown with a tight hair tie.
Step 4: Separate the hair in the tail into a top and bottom section and pull each section in opposite directions. This will give you an admiring little bump at the crown.
Step 5: To guarantee style all day, spray hair in place with Euforas Uphold Finishing Spray, a maximum hold, fast drying spray for long lasting style.

Hold Your Color

Ideal for color treated hair, the Davines: Nounou shampoo and conditioner brings out the original natural hair tones and restores health and shine to damaged hair. The key factor is sodium chloride, a common ingredient to slowly remove cosmetic color from the hair, which is perfectly suited for colored hair. The synergy of its ingredients have a deep restructuring action, protecting color, and restoring the body and suppleness, maintaining the same luminosity and fullness of tone of the color.

Top Foods to Keep your Hair Healthy

Better looking hair can begin with your next meal. The nutrients you eat today help fortify your hair follicles, starting from the scalp where hair strands form. Here are some foods that will help your hair:
~ Walnuts are a good source of biotin and vitamin e. Biotin and vitamin e protect your hair from sunlight, which keeps your hair color lavish and glossy.
~ Oysters contain zinc, without consuming enough zinc you may experience hair loss and your scalp will become dry and flaky. Oysters are also a good boost for protein.
~ Another great source of protein comes from eating eggs. You also gain four key minerals your hair needs from eating eggs: zinc, selenium, sulfur, and iron!
~ Blueberries are a super fruit when it comes to hair care. Blueberries are high in Vitamin C which is critical for circulation to the scalp and supports the tiny blood vessels that feed your hair follicles. Too little vitamin C leads to hair breakage.
~ Poultry keeps hair strong and plentiful with it’s zinc, iron, and B vitamins.
~ Eating salmon brings out strong hair because it is rich in protein and vitamin D. Proteins are necessary for tissue repair and for the construction of new tissue. Every cell needs protein to maintain its life. Protein is also the primary substance used to "replace" worn out or dead cells. Your muscles, hair, nails, skin, and eyes are made of protein. Those with thinning hair and too many wrinkles for your age, may lack protein.
You have much more control over your hair than you think, adding these foods into your protein-rich diet will give it the factors it needs to be strong and healthy!

For Curly Hair

Curly hair is naturally drier than its straight counterpart. Because of this, it is essential that moisture-adding products are a part of your daily hair care routine. Shampoos can be harsh and strip curly hair of the only moisture that it does have. So the Davines Love Curl shampoo uses olive amphoacetate to GENTLY cleanse hair and myrtle extract to moisturize and reinforce the scalp. Continue your healthy hair routine with Davines’ Love Conditioner, which uses rice wax to prevent the dehydration that curly hair is already prone to. Finish off with the renowned Oi Milk serum to wear it with its natural flowing curl. Check out the amazing effects of Oi Milk here:

Davines OI Essential Haircare Line Has Arrived at Pistachio

This new hair care line offers absolute beauty for all hair types. The Oi Shampoo and Oi conditioner contain the natural active ingredient Roucou oil - an anti-oxident that prevents hair from aging. The Oi Conditioner accelerates the drying process and protects the structure of hair from heat damage and stress.
As fabulous as these products are, the real celebrity of this line is the Davines Oi All in One Milk. With its provitamin B5, in addition to the roucou oil, this product is an all-in-one postshower treatment and styling miracle. It provides shine, softens, detangles, controls frizz, conditions, adds body, moisturizes, facilitates blow drying, provides heat protection, and helps for longer lasting hairstyles. These products range from $32-$46 and are going fast!
Pistachio Pointer: After massaging through and rinsing Oi Shampoo from your hair, towel dry and spray the Oi Milk 10-15 times on roots and ends; do not rinse and continue styling. For more dehydrated hair, use Oi Milk as a moisturizing finish by spraying directly onto the palm of your hand and running through your hair.
Come on into Pistachio today or call (760)-230-4880 to speak with any one of our well educated stylists to be guided through these products and the rest of our Davines lines.

Feeling a little Frizzy?

The secret to being able to achieve hairstyle that you’re re-creating from your favorite tutorial is being able to manage it. No unwanted frizz here!
Our treatments at Pistachio do wonders to restore manageability, which is necessary to easily maintain your favorite summer ‘dos. Our Powercell treatment, starting at $25, combines moisture and protein to smooth out your hair for up to thirty days.
Pistachio Pointer: For most San Diegan’s who live in close proximity to the coast, we recommend going for smoothing products to beat that extra bit of humidity. Follow up our smoothing treatments at home to continue their benefits with Davines’ Dede leave in conditioner, Davines’ Momo serum, and Davines’ anti-frizz oil. This is our favorite combination for this time of year to replenish frizzy or stressed hair with vital nutrients and moisturizers. After spraying and combing the Dede conditioner through your hair, combine a nickel size of the Momo protective fluid with a pump of the Oil and work through hair before blow-drying. For a more permanent treatment, we offer a Keratin smoothing treatment that lasts for three to six months.
Note: Davine’ Dede is a phenomenal product that incorporates elder extract, which keeps the lipids in the hair retaining water and exuding that glowing smoothness and shine.
For more information on our range of treatments and products, give us a call at (760) 230-4880 to speak with a specialist or come in for a free consultation to get the proper prescription for your hair.

Your hair needs nutrients too!

You’ve spent the summer taking advantage of the fresh summer fruit; why not replenish your hair with the same vitamins and minerals?

Give both your hair and scalp the chance to soak up the necessary nutrients with our Vitamin C Clarifying treatment and our Swimmer’s treatment. These treatments not only remove the mineral buildup caused by those evening swims, but instantly hydrate and restore shine. The lactic acid restores cellular cohesion and is used to repair damaged hair fibers.
Treatments range from $35-$55. Our specialists are here to assess your hair and prescribe the right treatment based on your needs. Call us at (760)-230-4880 to schedule an appointment for a free consultation today!

Pistachio’s first Beauty Fair last Friday, August 17th, was a huge success! We had a number of our clients, friends, and family (although really , we don’t differentiate)) come in for this night of beauty tips, wine, and fun.
Everyone who came received a free gift bag, and all our boutique merchandise was marked 20% off for the evening. We also had a raffle for everybody who came, and one of our long time clients, Erica, won the huge goody bag.
Pistachio will be hosting many more of these fun events in the future, so if you’d like us to add you to the interest list, drop us a line at diary dot pistachiohair dot com.
A special thanks to California Fruit and Wine for providing the evening’s refreshments! Everybody loved the choices, and they were all excellent. Make sure to check them out if you’re ever looking for a great night of wine tasting!

Protecting Your Hair In California's Sunny Climate

Neenah, one of our expert stylists, has been doing hair for over 6 years. We recently had a chance to sit down and talk to her about her experiences in the hair industry, and ask her for some advice on taking care of your hair during these last few summer months.
Question: How long have you been doing hair in Southern California?
Answer: About 6 years
Question: What have you noticed about the local climate and how it affects peoples’ hair?
Answer: People that live near the coast have to worry about frizziness because of their proximity of the ocean. More inland residents have to worry about the effects of the sun, including color fading faster than it would in less sunny latitudes.
Question: What can people do to prevent fading and sun damage from happening?
Answer: Those living closer to the coast should be using smoothing products like Eufora’s Smooth N Straightening Balm. People living farther inland should be using a UV protectant, as well as a color safe shampoo and conditioner to prevent the color from fading. A thermal protectant is a good idea for everyone, especially in the heat of SoCal. That seals the cuticle and prevents moisture from escaping in the heat. I recommend Eufora’s Beautifying Serum or Fortifi Strengthening Spray.
Question: What if the damage has already happened? What steps can you recommend to help heal damaged hair?
Answer: Customize conditioning treatments, depending on the damage of the hair. Here at Pistachio we carry carifying treatments, protein treatments, power dose moisturizers, vitamin C, and much more. Any of the stylists on our team would love to offer a free assessment and prescription for proper care, just call the salon to make your appointment.
Thanks for your help Neenah!

Pistachio's Team Masters New Haircutting Techniques

Mondays may get a bad rap elsewhere, but the Pistachio team loves them. For the last two Mondays, our Technical Educator, Kristyn Otto, has come in early, along with the rest of our team, to teach a class on some exciting new hair cutting techniques. These extensive, 5 hour, 2 part classes are all about perfecting the newest trends by improving cutting accuracy and posture. For most of our stylists, this was a review, but for our new junior stylists it was a valuable chance to learn from some of the most highly trained stylists in the area. Education is a huge part of our salon, and it's incredibly gratifying to see these young stylists learning and practicing these fundamental skills.

Pistachio Home to Advanced Education

Pistachio Hair Studio originated with the value of education and being able to provide a training ground where aspiring hair designers can evolve and further their careers both artistically and professionally. Understanding that education is at the core of our salon, we developed a more comprehensive in-salon educational program targeted at all stylists, regardless of their experience level. We believe it is essential that all stylists on Pistachio’s team pursue continuous education in the most advanced techniques and cutting edge styles.
The Pistachio advanced education program is a Eufora-based cutting system. Educators of Eufora and Davines lead our classes in advanced color theory and application. It is imperative that our stylists receive incessant education and coaching from experts with years of experience in the beauty industry. One of the many brilliant designers that have worked with Pistachio’s education program is Robear Landeros. Robear is a world renowned educator for Davines and has worked with numerous celebrity clients, including Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek and Christina Aguilera. In his teachings, he utilized many different techniques designed to represent progression from the awards party to the after party. These styles were seen in Runway This Season! Robear Landeros is just one of many experts who have participated in Pistachio’s pursuit of continuous education that ensures our clients will leave feeling and looking fantastic.

A New Look! A New You! How to refresh your look for the summer

Need a change and can’t quite figure out what the new hairstyle should be? This doesn’t need to be a tricky decision. Here are a few simple things to keep in mind on your next visit to Pistachio:
If your hair is dry and split at the ends, then cut it! Healthy hair is much more radiant than long wispy hair.
Just as fashion evolves, your hair style should too. Don’t be afraid to make a change. Remember that even the smallest change will make a statement and show everyone a new you!
Refresh your locks with our clarifying conditioning treatment followed by a gloss that is tailor-made for your hair color. Adding a gloss to your normal salon visit routine will restore your hair’s shimmer and shine and locks in the color.
With the summer months upon us, you feel lighter, brighter and happier. Why not incorporate that great feeling into your hair? Adding a touch of subtle, golden sun kissed highlights are the perfect way to summerize your hair.
Always consult with your hairstylist the about the statement you’re trying to make with your hair, and rest assured that your stylist is a professional designer who is taking into consideration all the key features to create the perfect new look for you.

Pistachio Educator Innovates Volumizing Haircut

For Kristyn Otto, innovative haircuts are just part of her ordinary day at Pistachio Hair Studio. As a Technical Director, Educator with Eufora, and having years of expertise in the industry, even the most advanced and technical cuts come naturally to this creative designer.
Kristyn’s most current fixation is her own original haircut, which she has named the Hannah, after her daughter. Hannah is a long layered cut that creates movement through the bottom while adding lift and volume to the top of the hair. Kristyn has designed the cut to fashion beautiful hair that compliments short, long, straight, and curly hair. This cutting-edge haircut will soon be adopted into the Eufora education system and taught at Pistachio Hair Studio and throughout the Eufora global network of salons.

Customizable curl patterns using a curling iron
Lasting frizz control and durable volume
Thermally reconditioned hair that is softer and shinier than before the service

The secret behind Gwyneth Paltrow's "straight edgy" look

The key ingredient to Gwyneth Paltrow's "straight edgy" Emmys look? Essential Oil - Learn how to do it yourself after the break:
The look was created by celebrity stylist David Babaii. David titled this look "straight edgy," defined by taking a straight look and disheveling it to create soft texture.
The key ingredient in this effortlessly glam, yet edgy look is Pequi Oil. We carry a similar oil by Davines called Oi Oil, which can be used to achieve this look by simply massaging the product into hair prior to blow drying, and when the hair is fully dry, straighten and gently scrunch the ends with a dab of oil on your fingertips. Scrunching gives the messy yet elegant look used to create Gwynths's look.
Looking to have a stylist show you how it's done? Book your appointment now in time to impress your friends for the holidays!

From commercial to runway in the same day

Last Monday at Pistachio, Robear Landeros introduced 5 different looks from one head of hair. Robear is a world famous educator for Davines and has worked on numerous celebrity clients, including Jennifer Aniston, Salma Hayek, Christina Aguilera. The afternoon was based around a technique that Robear created to help his clients go from a basic style to a more avant garde look for weddings and other special events. He utilized many different techniques, including the possibility of extensions within an updo style. The class represented a progression from the awards party to the after party, and these are styles that are going to be see on the runway, both this season and for seasons to come!
Many of Pistachio's stylists came to this afternoon of learning and fashion, and Robear was excited to be a part of Pistachio's ongoing education. The Pistachio team is looking forward to using Robear's techniques to help make their clients look and feel fantastic, and would like to extend a huge set of thanks to the master stylist for the wonderful class.

Pistachio Contributes to Local Charity Event For Lucas’ Heart Transplant

Pistachio Hair Studio is proud to announce its participation in an upcoming charity event to help Lucas Valencia, 14. Lucas is in need of a heart transplant and local volunteers aim to raise $50,000 to help with his surgical expenses.
Lucas was born with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy a year ago and family, friends and Children’s Organ Transplant Association (COTA) have since been working to raise the funds for Valencia’s surgery. The funds will pay for additional non-insurance covered expenses related to the transplant that will cost about $500,000.
To aid in this effort, Pistachio will be hosting its own charity drive by opening its doors on Sunday, May 22nd.

Pistachio's 2010 Holiday Party

Click here to watch the video!
With the holiday season already in full swing, Pistachio decided to celebrate in style by hosting its own holiday party. With the salon looking like something out of a winter wonderland, guests were invited to come and enjoy an evening of fashion, hair care, and friends.
The salon opened at 6, and the night of fun began! Guests got haircare advice from Pistachio’s highly trained stylists, whom were demonstrating proper maintenance and styling techniques throughout the night. Stylists also answered questions about haircare, all in an effort to keep everyone’s hair looking as healthy and luxurious as possible for the holiday season.
It was exciting to see that many clients brought friends and family members, and, as a little reward for spreading the word, were treated to a prize raffle. Clients walked away with gift bags, hair care products, and even jewelry from Pistachio’s boutique!
Finally, near the end of the night, the lights dimmed, the music got louder, and the cameras started flashing; the fashion show began! As the models gracefully paced down the red carpet, they displayed their expertly-crafted hair and Pistachio’s new holiday collection.

At the end of the night there was a lot of excitement, and clients, both new and old, left with a better understanding of how to maintain and style their hair, a few gifts for their loved ones (and for themselves), and some great memories.

It’s always a huge hit with stylists and clients alike. Available only at fine salons, Powerdose is a great treat for your hair.

‘Soft Opening’ a Success

Monday, Aug. 9 marked the first opening of Pistachio Hair Studio & Fashion Boutique. The event went quite smoothly, thanks to all the hard work, planning and cooperation of the team members.
Our deep gratitude must also go to our valued clients, both existing and new, and all the wonderful surrounding communities that have welcomed the new salon/day spa to their midst. Very pleasantly surprised, we're proud to report that nearly all our stylist/esthetician positions are as of this writing filled, and we're now building a waiting list for future openings
Further, the 'Small but Special' Pistachio boutique was very well received and its inventory virtually depleted! Certainly looks like folks in the area approve our taste in jewelry, clothing and other fine merchandise. Not to worry, though: Our buyers are now busy restocking the shop with the latest offerings for the fall season.
Please stay tuned for news about our Grand Opening soon.

The Home Stretch

With less than a week remaining to Pistachio's first opening on Monday, Aug. 9, the salon project has exceeded our expectations in almost every aspect.
After numerous presentations and interviews, an impressive initial team of stylists, estheticians and receptionists has been assembled to kick off 'Pistachio' in grand style. More of these specialists will be brought onboard in the weeks and months ahead. Even a professional fashion buyer/consultant has been retained to set up our 'small but special' boutique, and to ensure that it performs as a productive and fun element of the new salon.
The studio itself has also come together nicely, with all the colors, materials and hardware converging to create the clean, uplifting ambiance envisioned in our original designs. The fact that the salon was finished on time, we're told, is an unheard-of phenomenon in the region's construction business!

Working Fast

Construction work at our conveniently located salon at Melrose Plaza is running ahead of schedule, we're happy to report. The sub-floor infrastructure is all done and drywall is up nearly everywhere. Next on the to-do list are the electrical, lighting and sound systems to be followed by elaborate furnishings and decor.
An outwardly indication of this brisk rate of progress is the installation of our main sign on one of the shopping center's prominent towers. Pistachio's branding effort is aided immensely by this eye-catching display created by Western Sign Systems of San Marcos.
Furthermore, Pistachio management has leased office space at a nearby building (1740 La Costa Meadows Dr.). The facility is equipped with a convenient conference room for private meetings.
