The Face of ColorProof

Color proofJim Markham is the face behind Pureology and ColorProof, two of our favorite product lines, and was profiled in the latest issue of Coast Magazine.   Who knew that a career that began as a barber to support a young family would result in him becoming one of the true innovators of hair care? Do check out the short and interesting article.

We at V’z wouldn’t be able to have the shine, health and integrity of hair care products without Jim Markham’s innovative research. He is a guru of product development for hairstylists. He doesn’t make color, but he makes all of our colors look their best. Most of all, he keeps finding ways to make the color last longer than any other hair products on the market.

V’z recommends ColorProof to our customers, as it protects their hair and their investment in our color services.  To learn more, give us a call at 775.588.5300.

A Day with Sojourn

hair cutting training dayRecently the team from V’z attended a training with Sojourn Beauty, a salon that boasts some of the industry’s top stylists.  Our trainer Sadie began her career as an apprentice with Vidal Sassoon.  She has over 20 years of experience in everything from TV commercials to photo shoots to Fashion Week.  She’s worked all over the world, so to have her in Reno showing us precision hair cutting techniques was pretty special.

The team at V’z all had to finish the new haircut, and in doing so learned all about various precision techniques that allow us to adapt styles to fit different types of images.

This sort of training isn’t easy to come by, so we’re very excited to have had this opportunity, and are eager to share our knowledge with you!  Give us a call for a consultation.

If you’re not in need of a new cut, consider Sojourn’s new leave-in conditioner, created by Elan Sasson, Vidal’s son, which we currently carry.  As with everything at V’z, it is try before you buy.  

Hair design inspiration at the Redken show

Once every two years, hairdressers, salon owners, and educators from around the world get to preview up and coming hair designs and trends from the fashion industries runway artists themselves.

Continuing Education – Our Commitment to You

The V’z team learned a lot at the recent Dermaquest class.

It’s been a busy few weeks here at V’z.  The team has taken a number of classes on new products like Color Proof Evolve, Moroccan Oil and Dermaquest.  This continuing education allows us to remain current on hair design, product knowledge and new technologies, which means we can better provide our clients with the high quality products and services they deserve!

Consider asking your stylist how current he or she is on hair design, fashion and product knowledge.  In other words what has your stylist done for you lately?  Are you staying loyal to someone who is not committed to you? V’z is committed to its clients, and our continuing education programs ensure that we bring the highest standards to the Tahoe beauty industry.  We encourage our clients to be part of this, by inviting them to product demonstrations, and providing website links to our preferred brands (on the right of this post).

So, whether you’re looking for a new moisturizer, new color and design, or a whole new look, you can rest assured that your team at V’z can provide you with the most current option’z!

Pureology Certified – what does that mean?
