After lots of hard work, Salon Absinthe opened its doors this week! I put careful thought into the color and products I wanted to bring in and wanted to give you a few reasons why I chose them.

First, I’m proud to say Salon Absinthe is 100% cruelty-free! The color line I chose and the product lines do not test on animals! This is exciting, people!

Framesi, USA.

Framesi is an amazing color line! Founded in 1945, Milan Italy. This company pioneered the use of Italian hair color in the United States! They also introduced the 10 level coloring system and their colors are constantly updated to keep up with the newest trends. They also only contain 2% ammonia, this is one of the lowest on the market.

One of the main ingredients for Framcolor is vegetable coconut oil. Leaving the hair with a brilliant shine and unmatched softness.

Framesi is 100% vegan. Cruelty-free, and no use of animal by-products. It is also gluten free, paraben free, sulfate free, dea free, and sodium chloride free.

I was interested to hear that most shampoos and conditioners contain DEA, and this chemical is a known carcinogen.

After using the color a few times, I was sold. Gorgeous pigmentation and the condition and shine of the haircolor is stunning.

The Color Lover Masque is unparalleled, I have used many, much more expensive masques and this one is the absolute best I’ve ever gotten my little tattooed paws on.

I’m proud to carry Framesi color and products.

Anchors Hair Company

Let’s just talk about Anchors Hair Company for a moment. Many of you know how obsessed I am with these products. We carried them at Tease for a bit and I was certainly disappointed when we no longer did!

Anchors is a local company! Handcrafted in Knoxville, Tennessee and in small batches to maintain integrity. No parabens or harsh chemicals and 90% of the scent is from essential oils to retain luster in your hair. With a water base and oil base, you can achieve many finishes depending on which you choose!

They also shampoo easily out, which is a miracle if you know anything about many other lower grade pomades. Also dye and alcohol free!

Teddy boy matte is a personal favorite, water based and with a light scent that is just delightful. And the best, you only need a dime sized amount for hours of control.

Beauty and Pinups.

Beauty and Pinups uses only a-list ingredients. In a literal sense.

Amla oil, a product of India to add strength. Argan oil, of the Mediterranean with well known softening and conditioning properties. Avacado oil is also present, chock full of omega 3s to impart a brilliant shine.

This product line is also free of parabens and sulfates and cruelty free!
