5 New Hairstyles to Try in 2023!

5 New Hairstyles to Try in 2023!

A new year is here! What better way to start the new year off than with a big chop or colour change? The Salon@Church team wants you to look and feel your best and 2023 is shaping up to be a year of bold hairstyles! Here are five of the hottest hair trends to look out for!

Bold Colours

Want to turn heads everywhere you go and get a serious boost of confidence? Bold hair colour can change up your hair look and give you that instant mood boost! 2023 is all about making a statement with your hair! Whether it’s bright pink, vibrant purple, or electric blue, don’t be afraid to experiment with vivid colours. Our team LOVES bold bright colours and are serious experts in this field. Head over to our IG to see some of the bold styles we’ve been creating lately! 

Uptown Blonde

If you’re looking to try a new hair colour or upgrade your current do now is the time! This shade of blonde is going to be huge this year as it is a less-maintenance look while also looking expensive and polished. The term uptown blonde is an antidote to saturated bleached blonde, as well as a beachy balayage which are two of the hottest blonde trends. This colour is perfect for anyone looking to transition to an all-over bright blonde colour!

Short Cuts

Hair experts are predicting shortcuts to be huge this year! We’ve already seen major celebrities debut their new short hair and we are here for it! Short hair cuts give you a fresh start and pressing the reset button after a challenging couple of years will manifest in the desire to cut your hair. Short crops and bobs will be the most in-demand cuts this year.

Layered Haircuts 

You didn't think we were going to forget about layers, did you? They remain the single biggest hair trend right now since they encompass dozens of hairstyles going viral including the wolf cut, and variations of the shag and mullet. Layered haircuts give the illusion of length and volume by using long hair for the illusion of length and short hair for volume. It is also an incredibly easy style to manage and suitable for anyone looking to add volume to their look.

Curtain Bangs 

So the curtain fringe is going nowhere. Just like in 2022, it's set to be a major hair trend in 2023. We love curtain bangs as they are a softer, more bespoke interpretation of straight-across bangs. These bangs are meant to flatter your bone structure and highlight certain facial features, such as the eyes or cheekbones. 


While a new year is here, the talented team of Salon@Church remains the same! We’re here to help transform your hair to any colour or style you're dreaming of! We’ll be sure to have you looking and feeling your best with a fresh new look! Book your next consultation with one of our stylists today!

The Ultimate Guide to Going Red This Fall!

The Ultimate Guide To Going Red This Fall!

Everyone's favourite season is finally here! It’s time to dig up our cozy sweaters and enjoy pumpkin spice and everything nice! When the leaves start to change, it’s time to transition our hair colour to something deep and dimensional. This season’s hottest hair colour is red! We have seen many celebs make the copper plunge and have been loving this hair colour process here at the salon. Keep reading to follow our ultimate guide to going red this fall!

Ditch the Ponytail

This fall we’re ditching the tight ponytail. This look is cute and easy to do during the summer but it causes breakage and damage; something we don’t want in the cooler seasons. If putting your hair up is a must, opt for a looser look and switch to using a claw clip or silk scrunchie to minimize breakage.

Find Your Shade

There are so many shades of red to choose from, so finding the perfect one for you may take some time. We suggest finding a shade to match your skin's undertones over choosing the most vibrant colour of red. Here is our quick rule of thumb when choosing your perfect shade of red:

  • For pale skin tones: try rose, gold and copper tones
  • For olive skin tones: try plum and berry tones
  • For darker skin tones: try cherry and wine tones
  • For natural blondes: try coppery highlights

It's always best to come to your appointment with some inspiration so our stylists know what you’re looking for and can work with you to find your perfect colour. 

Bleach May Not Be Necessary for Brunettes!

Good news for all brunettes! The transition from brown to red is smooth for the most part, thanks to the red undertones in some darker hair colours. Dark hair has a lot of natural red undertones that can turn orange which is perfect for anyone looking to switch to a natural-looking shade of red.

Some Tips For Our Blonde Babes

Be aware that transitioning to red from a blonde base may be a two-step process. Going from blonde to red is a significant change and can take some adjustment. But don't fret, you don’t have to commit to red hair permanently.  Going back to blonde for the warmer months should happen in early April and we’ll be here when you’re ready to go back to your roots. 

Prepare For More Maintenance 

We always suggest switching from washing your hair daily to every other day when changing to red. This will help prevent colour fading and your colour will last twice as long. When maintaining your new hair colour, we also recommend booking in with one of our colourists every six weeks to prevent colour fading. It is also essential to keep up with your at-home maintenance and give your hair the TLC it needs! 

Invest In Quality At-Home Care

Hair maintenance doesn't stop at the salon. We always recommend using a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner to help extend the vibrance of your new colour. Redken’s Colour Extend Magnetics shampoo and conditioner are perfect for any new redhead as these products help keep hair colour from fading and retain your hair’s radiant shine. A weekly hair mask is also a good step to add to your routine to help keep your hair moisturized!


Red is really having a moment this fall and we want to help you make the change. Book your next hair colour appointment with our professional stylists and fall in love with your new hair this season!

Upgrade Your Fall Haircare Routine!

Upgrade Your Fall Haircare Routine!

As a summer full of hot weather and outdoor activities comes to an end, it's time to prep our hair for the cooler weather. No one wants to go into the fall season with dry brittle hair that's why it's important to change up our hair care routine! Switching up your summer routine to incorporate more moisturizing and volumizing products will give your locks some much-needed TLC that is essential for the fall weather. Keep reading to learn how to upgrade your fall hair routine!

Ditch the Ponytail

This fall we’re ditching the tight ponytail. This look is cute and easy to do during the summer but it causes breakage and damage; something we don’t want in the cooler seasons. If putting your hair up is a must, opt for a looser look and switch to using a claw clip or silk scrunchie to minimize breakage.

Amp up your Hair's Moisture

Dry hair is a no go during the fall. Keep up your hairs moisture by adding a weekly hair mask into your fall routine. The transition between summer to fall is when it is vital to add a hair mask so your hair can adjust to the change in temperature. Authentic Beauty Concept Hydrate Mask is our faves as it is an intense, yet lightweight treatment that brings back elasticity, bounce and shine. By adding a weekly mask into your routine your hair will be more moisturized and less prone to breakage.   

Go Darker

Cooler weather = darker hair. As the seasons change so should your hair. We love dark tones as they are rich, and the perfect compliment to any skin tone. We recommend choosing a shade or two darker than your natural colour for the fall season to add dimension and shine to your luscious locks. The fall is a great time to bring some warm colours into your hair with highlights or a new colour!

Use a Leave-In Conditioner

The best way to add moisture back into your hair after a shower is by using a leave-in conditioner. We love leave in’s for their all-in-one benefits to help take away frizz, detangle, and condition hair. Redken’s One United Leave In Conditioner is a must this fall! We love this product for its ability to transform dull, lifeless hair into vibrant, shiny, and touchably soft locks. Redken’s One United Leave-In can also be used on day two hair to keep hair refreshed between washes.

Fall is all about change so why not make the change to your hair routine? Embrace everything fall has to offer without sacrificing your hair's health and shine. By making a few changes to your hair routine this fall, you can enjoy the season with touchable soft gorgeous hair! Book an appointment with one of our talented stylists to schedule your next hair colour appointment and browse our online store to shop all our fall faves!

Low Maintenance Back to School Hair

Low Maintenance Back to School Hair Colours!

The end of summer is always bittersweet. As the weather cools down, there is a refreshing feeling about getting back into a routine. A new routine marks new beginnings and an opportunity for a fresh start. This is especially true when it comes to starting a new year of school. At the salon we want you to look and feel your best when heading back to school. To start the school year off with flawless, hassle-free hair, consider our top picks for low-maintenance back-to-school hair colours.

Balayage

 

 

A balayage is an effortless, timeless classic! This hair colouring technique allows colourists to hand-paint colour directly onto your hair, which creates a more natural and blended look. Since balayage isn’t a hair colour, it can be pulled off using colours that are close to your natural shade to keep it low maintenance. Not sure what colour to choose? We are more than happy to suggest colours that would best suit your natural colour to keep your look subtle and fresh!

 

 

Teasy Lights

 

 

This hair technique is a complete game-changer! Teasy lights are the perfect way to add a softer blended highlight to your hair. Teasy lights are achieved by teasing the hair before adding colour and working in small sections to create a look that is more diffused and seamless. We often recommend this hair colour technique to clients who are looking for beautifully blended highlights while wanting to go a little longer between appointments.

 

 

Warm Caramel Highlights

 

 

Calling all brunette babes! If you want to add dimension and lightness to your hair, we recommend opting for a golden caramel colour when adding highlights to your luscious locks. Opting for a colour that is two or three shades lights than your natural hair will keep your look low maintenance and give your hair a more blended effect.

 

 

 

Face Framing Highlights

 

 

We love face-framing highlights for their simplicity! Face-framing highlights are strands of lighter-coloured hair strategically placed near the front of your hair to help accentuate your face. Because face-framing highlights only take up a small section of your hair, they’re perfect for salon-colour newbies and anyone looking for a quick and subtle way to switch up their look.

 

 

 

HOT TIP: Whenever you're colouring your hair we always suggest using a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner. Colour-safe shampoos help keep colour-treated hair from fading and maintain the colour over longer periods of time.

Our talented stylists are here to get you back to school ready with beautiful low-maintenance hair! Beat the rush and schedule your hair colour appointment with Salon @ Church today. Text us at 365-364-1232 or book online now!

Hot Hair Colour Trends for Summer 2022

THIS SUMMER'S HOTTEST HAIR COLOUR!

The vibes of summer are truly unmatched. The air is warm, the sun sets later, and there are always fun events happening! Honestly, we can’t say we’re complaining! With all the activities going on in the summer, who doesn't love a much-needed hair colour refresh? At the salon, we have been loving these fresh, bold summer colours! Browse our complete guide to this summer's hair colour trends.

Bright Pop of Colour

 

 

Adding colour to the underlayer of your hair is a great way to add a subtle pop! We love this style as it looks amazing pulled up or left down. It is also completely customizable! You can add a bold vibrant colour, or opt for a more neutral colour that adds contrast to your hair. Get in touch with one of our stylists today to bring your vision to life!

 

 

 

Dreamy Honey Blonde 

 

 

Embrace the sunshine with this honey blonde colour! This darker shade of blonde is a must-try for summer. This colour is a blend of light brown and sunkissed blonde with warm gold tones running throughout the hair. To maintain this look we suggest using Redken’s Colour Extend Blondage Shampoo and Conditioner and visiting one of our stylists every 4-6 weeks for upkeep. Trust us, your roots will thank you!

 

 

Bold Colour Blocking

 

 

Another hot trend this summer is colour blocking. This technique involves colouring a section of hair in a contrasting shade so it stands out against the rest of the hair. Colour blocking creates a look that's eye-catching and fun! We all know the summertime is all about being adventurous and trying new things! So why not switch up your hair colour?! The colour-blocking trend is a great way to try something fun without committing to an entirely new shade!

 

 

Expensive Brunette

 

 

Not all summer colours are light and bright! Trust us when we say the “expensive brunette” will add shine and dimension to your locks all summer long. This beautiful caramel balayage is the perfect colour to welcome the summer weather. This hair colour loves sunshine and rays will bounce right off you!

 

 

 

HOT TIP: Whenever you're colouring your hair we always suggest using a colour-safe shampoo and conditioner. Colour-safe shampoos help keep colour-treated hair from fading and maintain the colour over longer periods of time.

If you’re looking to colour your hair this summer leave it to the professionals of Salon@Church! We’ll be sure to have you looking and feeling your best with a fresh new hair colour! Book a consultation with one of our stylists today and head to our online store to shop our summer faves!!

How to Fight Frizz: Summer Hair Care Tips

 

How to Fight Frizz: Summer

 

Hair Care Tips

The summer season is finally upon us! This means maintaining hair care for those humid and hot summer days. Our goal is to teach you how to tackle frizz and keep your hair moisturized all summer long. Keep reading to learn all the tips and tricks for healthy, shiny, and happy hair during these hot summer months.

Start the Summer Off With a Trim

By starting the summer off with a trim, you'll be getting rid of split ends and giving your hair the refresh it needs! Doing this will help your hair grow faster and stronger. To book a trim with one of our talented stylists contact us here!

Keep the Brushing to a Minimum

There’s nothing worse than taking the time and effort to style your hair, only for it to end up a frizzy, untameable mess. We suggest brushing your hair as little as possible in the summer as hair brushing stimulates frizz! Try to keep it at a minimum and only use a wide-tooth comb when detangling in the shower!

Use a Hydrating Shampoo + Conditioner

Add some extra moisture to your routine! While in the shower we suggest using an ultra-hydrating shampoo and conditioner to lock in the moisture your hair craves during the summer. Try the beloved OLAPLEX Bond Maintenance Shampoo (No.4) and OLAPLEX Bond Maintenance Conditioner (No.5) to protect and repair damaged hair as well as lock in moisture.

The Cooler the Better

Try rinsing your hair with the coolest water you can handle. In the shower, the cold water closes the hair cuticle and blocks out future humidity. This is essential to help combat summer frizz!

Weekly Hair Masks

Try to make time for a weekly hair mask to add softness and shine to your strands. We suggest the Frizz Dismiss Mask by Redken to help nourish, hydrate and soften unruly, frizzy hair. Hair masks are much needed during the summer months! Psst did you know the Frizz Dismiss Mask is 20% off from June 14th to July 19th? Head to our online store to shop this summer's must-haves!

Add a Serum to Your Routine

A drop or two of anti-frizz oil or serum can help smooth and add shine to your strands. Try using a small amount of Redken's Friss Dismiss Anti Static Oil to minimize flyaways and frizz without weighing down the hair. This serum is great for combating frizz as it contains Babassu Oil for enhanced smoothness and frizz control.

___

Stay ahead of the game this summer with a hair care routine that does the hard work for you. Fight the frizz, up the moisture, and arm yourself with products that help your hair stand up to the elements. Don’t forget select summer essentials are on sale from June 14th to July 19th. Contact us today to book your next trim, or shop our site to purchase our summer faves.

Up-do’s for a successful walk down the aisle or across the stage

 

Up-do’s for a successful walk down the aisle or across the stage.

After two years of cancelled summer weddings, proms and graduations, 2022 events are in full effect! This year, focus all of your attention on the occasion by having an up-do hairstyle during the summer heat!

Smoothed with Accessories

In 2022, anything goes! This means jewellery, bows, pearls, and anything else that will elevate your look. For prom, attempt the popular sleeked back middle hair part, yet spikey, messy bun with a statement necklace. To keep an elegant wedding updo, embrace yours with a white laced classic veil. Achieve this look perfectly with a bit of Olaplex No. 7 Bonding Oil to tame your edges.

The Ponytail

Let’s not leave behind the most versatile option. A ponytail can be transformed into a tight and polished look, or it can be flawlessly messy with loose strands framing the face. Whichever route you wish to go, make sure your routines leading up to the big day are caring for your hair. Lean into a hair treatment or leave conditioners and attempt minimal heat usage. This will give your hair a better chance of not having unwanted flyaways or split ends in your ponytail. Salon at Church looks to take care of your hair, even after a cut, find a treatment that works for your hair type!

Let Your Genes Do the Work

Many of the in-style trends include leaving your hair untouched by straighteners and curling irons. An updo with less clean and precise looks gives an amazing shape. Leave room for your natural curls and waves with a loosely braided look. Keep the few misplaced hairs for style and complete the look with fine, minimalistic jewellery. If it’s been a while since letting the natural hair out, be sure to introduce a few hydrating products beforehand to avoid frizz. 

 

If there’s one thing to watch out for this summer - it’s the heat and humidity. Whether your event is indoors or outdoors, show up with the perfect up-do that needs no extra fixings. Keep your hair worries out of mind and enjoy your time with public events once again. If you’re in need of a trim before your wedding, prom or graduation - or are just looking for help with your chosen updo, our team is here to help and have you look your best on the days that matter!

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO GOING BLONDE!

 

THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO GOING BLONDE!

 

Summer is quickly approaching and as the sun gets brighter our hair often gets lighter. If you are looking to go blonde next season it’s important to start thinking about it now. 

Patience is KEY

Reaching that perfect shade of blonde is going to take some time. Going from black to blonde is possible, but not in one sitting. As professional hairstylists, it is our job to make sure your hair stays healthy! Have some patience while achieving your transformation and leave the salon with healthy beautiful blonde hair!

Leave it to the professionals 

Whether we would like to admit it or not many of us have had a “DIY” phase. While some are better than others, it is just best to leave it to the professionals. Using box dye can be very tricky. There is the risk of not using enough and having an incomplete or uneven colour. On the opposite end, there is the risk of using too much or letting it process too long resulting in damaged hair. Ultimately, box dye and at home bleach will leave you with unpredictable results as one size does NOT fit all. 

Prebook appointments

As mentioned above you will likely need more than one appointment to reach your desired hair colour. Try booking your appointments ahead of time to ensure you stay on track to achieving your hair goal!

Tone it

Going blonde is not just about bleach! It is all in the toner! A hair toner is a product that helps you correct or personalizes your colour. Whether you want a cooler or warmer blonde you are going to want to tone it to avoid a brassy or yellow look!

Keep it hydrated

It is important after lightening your hair you make sure to keep it strong and hydrated! Weekly Olaplex treatments will ensure hair strength while using a leave-in conditioner will help moisturize your hair and have it looking healthier than ever. Authentic Beauty Concept’s Replenish collection is designed for damaged hair.

The cost of beauty

Being blonde requires more maintenance than you are probably used to. You can expect more frequent trips to the salon to take care of roots, toner and trims. At-home maintenance is just as important, your favourite stylist will recommend the perfect products to ensure your blonde will last in between appointments. And remember you can shop from the comfort of your home right here

Smudge the roots 

A great way to create some space between appointments is to smudge your roots. A root smudge is a technique used specifically to blur lines of demarcation. It involves applying a colour formula close to the client's roots, and then “smudging” it into the shaft of the hair. This creates a softer transition between the root and the lightened hair, making the hair growth appear a bit more lived in. This will result in a lower maintenance blonde!
