Prep your hair, skin, and nails for the ultimate Summer Break!

At Creative Images Institute of Cosmetology, our staff carefully selects the products used in our salon and spa. From skincare and makeup to haircare and nail products, our estheticians, stylists, and nail technicians only use and recommend brands we trust. This ensures our clients get the best results possible—when visiting our location as well as when recreating your look at home. A new summer season means a new summer look!

If it’s been awhile since you’ve checked out the brands we rely on, we encourage you to take another look. The summer season often brings new product launches, and our professionals are happy to share more information about their favorites the next time you book a service.

Summer Nail Products from Morgan Taylor Lacquer

Morgan Taylor’s newest nail lacquer collection is inspired by the summer blockbuster Rocketman, a biographical musical film based on the life of musician Elton John. The shades in the collection are decidedly vibrant and range from lush purple (Just Me and My Piano) and vivid teal (Sir Teal to You) to a very wearable fuchsia (It’s the Shades) and pretty pink (Tickle My Keys). These lacquers are the perfect choice for a colorful warm weather mani or pedi.

Summer Skincare from Bioelements

Bioelements skincare products are free of phthalates, mineral oil, petrolatum, parabens, fragrance and dyes—and our estheticians swear by them. From at-home products designed to keep your complexion fresh and glowing to personalized Bioelements facials in our spa, this brand’s selection will help you tackle your biggest skin concerns. If you haven’t yet tried Bioelements, consider one of their starter kits for sensitive, oily, dry or combination skin. And to protect your skin from the sun, Bioelements’ RayDefense and SPF 50 FaceScreen are summer must haves.

Summer Makeup from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics

Established in 1996, Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics has always created uncomplicated, all-natural beauty products that are easy to use, gentle on skin, and deliver gorgeous results. From skin perfecting liquid mineral foundation, mineral radiance crème powder foundation, and natural loose mineral powder foundation to blush, bronzer, eye shadow, eye liner, lipstick and gloss, Youngblood products come in a range of colors to suit any complexion. This summer, we’re particularly in love with the Mineral Radiance Moisture Tint, Luminous Crème Blush, Enchanted Eyeshadow Palette,and Color-Crays Sheer Lip Crayons for creating a simple, no fuss look.

Summer Hair Products from Matrix and MIZANI

Matrix was founded in 1980 by a husband-and-wife hairdressing team who wanted to provide a comprehensive range of products to hairdressers that would maximize their talent and creativity. This summer, we’re loving Matrix’s Total Results Keep Me Vivid line of haircare products. From the sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner to the Color Lamination Spray, these products will prevent fading and keep your hair color vibrant and shiny all summer long.

Recently, Creative Images’ stylists added MIZANI to their arsenal of premium haircare and styling tools. The company’s products are designed specifically for the needs of textured hair and work to keep curls hydrated, bouncy and healthy even through heat treatment. For low maintenance summertime hair, our stylists are particularly loving MIZANI’s Style Refresher Milk and Perfect Coil Oil Gel.

Whether you’re wanting to protect your hair and skin from the heat this summer or try out a new sizzling look, Creative Images Institute of Cosmetology has you covered. Call now to book your appointment!
