What is it about Balayage that celebrities all ask for it? Balayage is a French word that means "sweeping." Highlights are hand painted (swept) onto the hair for a natural looking sun kissed effect — Balayage creates that look better than any other technique. There are definite benefits to Balayage: a less manufactured look, the re-growth is less obvious with a softer line of demarcation and lower maintenance. The painted highlights follow the natural flow of your hair, not so close to each other and therefore are not as uniform as traditional foil highlights. They also have different points of origin, some start right from the scalp, some from farther, it all depends on the desired effect. Balayage is a customized service and it takes a lot of skill: our experienced stylists at Scene 217 are specially trained in Balayage techniques. Pricing starts at $90 — consult your stylist.

Cosmo Prof Fashion Show (education event for Scene 217 salon staff only)
At Scene 217 we're always up on the latest trends. On March 5th & 6th, 2017 the Scene 217 Crew will travel to National Harbor, MD for the Cosmoprof Mid-Atlantic Fashion Focus event. This is where we learn and educate ourselves on the hottest style/hair trends for our female and male clientele. STAY TUNED!!!

Split-End Mender - Thermo-Marine Bonding system
In the demo photos shown here, see the great results done in our salon - results that last up to 4 weeks and can be performed every 4 weeks. The system uses a Thermo-Marine Bonding system which is a heat activated, protein-enriched technology that instantly gathers and binds broken and split ends while the Brazilain Blowout Super Nutrient Complex smooths the cuticle. The end result is stronger, healthier ends defended against damage caused by heat styling, hot tools and environmental stress. This is a very quick service that can be done while cutting the hair - see menu for pricing.

COLOR WOW - Hair Cocktails and Root Touchup

COLOR WOW Cocktails come in three "flavors" - Kale Cocktail for breakage, Coconut Cocktail for dehydrated hair, and Carb cocktail for thin, flat hair. This is a very quick service that can be done while cutting the hair - see menu for pricing. COLOR WOW root powder can be used for root touch up, brows, and to retouch and extend highlights. Purchase a pressed-powder compact to take home with you and extend your "look" between color appointments.
