We’ve done it again! Artistic Creations Salon located in the Windham Village Green Plaza at 33 Indian Rock Road has once again taken First Place at the Paul Mitchell of Northern New England & Michael’s School Of Hair Designs Fantasy Hair Competition. The annual contest happens every April and each year the theme changes. The event has a dual purpose as it is also a fundraiser for the students and staff at Michael’s School Of Hair Design, this year raising over $20,000. They support a block of charities including the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Magic Johnson Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, just to name a few.

This technique is perfect for all my clients!! Regardless of the type of hair you have, a little volume on top never hurt anybody. I understand that my fine-haired ladies are likely more interested in putting a little oomph into the crown of their heads, but once you know what you’re doing when it comes to how to tease hair, girls with any type of hair can benefit from this! This whole process can be a little intimidating and has the tendency to come out looking a little too crazy if you’re not careful, and that’s what I’m here for! What do you need? Dry hair! (most important) A Paul Mitchell long tail teasing comb Using the teasing comb to section off hair and the thin tooth comb to tease near the root, the long tail comb will be your best friend when it comes to hair volume.

A long hair clip You can really use any kind of hair clip you’re comfortable with, but the idea is to be […]
Hey everyone! Your friendly, neighborhood Relayer Lauren here. I cannot believe we are coming up on yet another year of the Relay for Life! 2015 will mark our SIXTH (!) year participating in Salem, New Hampshire’s Relay and we couldn’t be more excited. We’ve been fortunate enough to have raised over $10,000 over the past five years. For those who may not know, the Relay for Life is an annual event put on by the American Cancer Society. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the first Relay. The Relay is currently held in all 50 states, in over 5,200 communities and in more than 20 countries across the globe. One of the wonderful things about Relay is that all money raised within the community stays in the community. We hold lots of fundraisers both before and at Relay. This year, we partnered with Pampered Chef and were able to raise $200 for our team. We also did a fundraiser with Panera Bread in Manchester. At the Relay itself, we will be doing mini-manicures, hair extensions and haircuts. One of the most important parts of the Relay (and certainly one of the moments that stays with you long after leaving […]
