Before and After Photos: Dreamcatchers Hair Extensions

Recently we had a new client visit the Balance salon with a hair crisis. She came to us with extremely damaged hair from a salon in the Washington DC area. Our Artistic Director Trisa worked closely with her to best restore her hair's health and style.

After a good cut and conditioning treatment, they decided on Dreamcatchers Hair Extensions to give her long flowing locks again. Trisa carefully matched the color and wave of her existing hair. Within a few days (using rush service), our client had an envious head of loose blonde waves.

Take a look at these dramatic before and after photos.

Meet our Sweetie

Meet the newest (and perhaps the cutest) member of the Balance Hair Spa team! Her name is Sweetie Darling and she is a mere 13 weeks old. She is a purebred Boston Terrier puppy and prefers to be called just "Sweetie" (following in the steps of the great Cher and Madonna).

Thomas and Biff adopted Sweetie last week from a Lancaster County breeder.

"She was the smallest and the quietest of her brothers and sisters. We fell in love with her instantly," says Biff.

Sweetie is a playful pup with a calm, gentle and loving disposition.

Most days, you can catch a glimpse of Sweetie at Balance Hair Spa. She likes to sleep in her bed and visit with our guests between her hours of beauty sleep. Welcome Sweetie!
