Your appointment day
Sophia Sunflower Salon
offers a complimentary shampoo and conditioning treatment for your initial
style. If you would like me to remove your twists or artificial hair, or
detangle your hair, please let me know when scheduling your appointment. These
services require additional time, and an additional charge. If during your
appointment you change your mind about the services agreed to during your consultation,
I will provide you with a price for the new services.

At your consultation,
we established what style you have desired. Please be certain about your
choices because I will not give any refunds. You are encouraged to look at your
hair during the styling process. At the end of your service, I will give you
instructions to maintain your hair at home. After your hairstyle is complete
and you have left the premises, you are agreeing that you are pleased with your
service. Please feel free to look at your finished style before leaving the
salon so that I can do my best to correct any issues to your satisfaction. If
you are unsatisfied or feel there is something wrong with your service after
you leave the salon, I will ask you to leave your hair exactly the way it is
and return to the salon so that I may assess what I can do to ensure your
satisfaction. If you decide to remove or change your hair for any reason before
allowing me to see your hair, a new appointment must be scheduled, and charges
will apply. Please keep in mind that I cannot determine how long a hairstyle
will last, I can only generalize. I cannot predict that your hair will not
frizz (this is a natural occurrence with natural hair). In the event that you
decide not to allow me to complete your hair service, I will only charge you
for the services you have received to that point. Please do communicate with me , prior to the service , please be open and tell me what services you would like, and what you would like done, I will review what we discussed during the consult , please be open and tell me if you are changing your mind or expecting something different. Please do not assume I know how you would like your hair, be open and talk while you are at the salon .My goal is for you to be satisfied but I cannot if you do not tell me while you are there . ( For example if you say you want a trim and I do not cut enough off ask me to cut more off).

What color system do
The Color Systems I
use are ECO Colors. While this is a natural color line, a patch test is
advised. Just because a product is natural or organic does not mean you will
not develop sensitivity. Sophia Sunflower Salon, Inc. assumes no responsibility
or liability of an allergic reaction to a product or patch test. This color
line has been used in my salon for several years. Please keep in mind that color
is sometimes unpredictable and cannot be guaranteed as the exact color on the
swatch. There are no refunds on color services.
The online booking
form must be submitted prior to a color application. ECO Colors Hair Color is a
non-toxic product that does not contain the chemical PPD, found in most
chemical-based hair colors. However, it does contain high-quality ingredients
such as lecithin, vitamin E, vitamin C, nettles, rosemary, flower essence and
grapefruit seed extract. Eco Colors surpasses its competitors in performance
with super conditioning coverage that is natural looking and shiny. Please note
that ECO products typically do not last as long as chemical-based dyes. A color
release form will need to be signed prior to receiving a color treatment.
Secrets of beauty have
been cherished throughout the ages. One of the oldest beautifiers known is
Henna. Famous beauties such as Nefertiti and Cleopatra used Henna to enhance
their hair coloring. Silent film stars Theda Bara and Clara Bow colored their
hair with Henna to add to their mystery. Today, women and men who understand
how to be naturally beautiful use Henna. Henna comes from small shrubs, called
Lawsonia, that are native to the Middle East, West Asia and North Africa. The
leaves are dried and then pulverized to a fine powder. We use only the finest
grade Henna. It is 100% organic with no additives, chemicals or pesticides. The
Henna plates each strand of hair. The shade of Henna is reflected through the
hair while enhancing the hair’s natural color. It is also a conditioner. The
cuticle is smoothed by Henna’s sealing action, giving hair a polished look.
Because the cuticle is tight and flattened, the hair is protected from
atmospheric conditions, such as sun and air pollution. Regular use of Henna
texturizes hair, giving it more body; this becomes more evident with each
application. Henna may be applied every 4 to 6 weeks. Because the color blends
so naturally and fades gradually, there is never a noticeable regrowth area.
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers about
Can Henna be used on
grey or white hair?
Yes it can. If there’s
more than 25% grey, a double application is recommended on the same day.
Can Hair be lightened
No. The Henna color
will remain on the hair even if high lift blonde tints or bleaches are used.
Will Henna lighten
No. Henna does not
contain any lightening chemicals. Blonde Henna brings out yellow and golden
brown highlights. Marigold Blonde Henna brings out gold and yellow highlights.
Both add shine and body to grey hair.
How often can I use
Neutral Henna can be
used on any type of hair every 4 weeks. All other shades can be used every 4 to
6 weeks. If color fades quicker than 4-6 weeks it is safe to re-apply sooner.
Use of henna has many
benefits other than colouring the hair. Because it coats the strands of hair
with the Lawsonia it makes the cuticles lie down flatter, which can result in
smoother shinier hair with less tangling.
An anti-dandruff and
scaly scalp treatment – Henna is naturally antifungal and antibacterial and
some people have reported regular use of henna has helped with issues of dandruff
and scaly scabby scalp.
Another effect of
henna for more highly textured, curly, or coarse hair types, is a loosening and
softening of hairs curl pattern, more ‘hang time’ with the hair – that is
rather than hair standing straight up from the scalp it now hangs downwards,
and also users notice they have a lot less shrinkage when hair dries. This
benefit is often noticed by those who have used henna treatments at least three
or four times in a short space of time say anything between three to eight weeks.
This is due in part to the weight the various coatings henna adds to the hair
strands and of course natural gravity.
People with fine, thin
limp hair also notice that constant henna treatments give their hair more body,
density, shine and all round bounce, again this is because the regular coats of
henna will build up the hairs structure and result in thick stronger strands.
