It’s a MIHO Holiday!

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Today at 1:45 salon Tonic is being graced by the presence (presents?) of MIHO Gastrotruck for lunch. MIHO Gastrotruck uses fresh, local, and thoughtfully-sourced ingredients to create hand-crafted street food that is affordable, convenient, and delicious. Check out their website here. And a special Thank You to Nora at Goldwell for hosting this event. Not only does Goldwell provide us with an amazing color line and education, they are super cool, too. This is a recent color trend event video that I found on You Tube

salon TONIC welcomes Oribe

Tuesday, August 24th, 2010

Salon Tonic is honored to be hosting a demonstration by the one and only Oribe. We’re so excited we can hardly sleep! It’s like Christmas Eve or The night before a new Coen Brothers movie premiere. Only better! We love Oribe and are anxiously awaiting his arrival to our humble little hair salon. By the time he’s done with his demonstrations our noggins will be full of brand new hairy ideas. He’s got duffel bags full of hair pieces that he’s going to turn into art on live models. A blonde, a brunette and a redhead will be transformed into living art.  Read what others are saying.
