Victoria Bartlett Spring 2013 Show

PHYTO at VPL by Victoria Bartlett Spring 2013 Show

PHYTO was proud to be the haircare sponsor for the VPL by Victoria Bartlett Spring 2013 Show at New York Fashion Week. Hair stylist Bob Recine created a cool, downtown chick look by creating a side fishtail braid. 

  1. Apply Phyto Professional Intense Volume Mousse to the hair prior to blow drying. Blow dry hair with a round boar bristle brush.
  2. Spray Phyto Laque Soie Light Hold Hairspray to the bristles of a brush, using the brush to create a side part and tame down the hair on the sides. 
  3. Tie the hair to a low side ponytail. Create a fishtail braid.
  4. Finish the look with Phyto Professional Workable Holding Hairspray all over to set the look.

All the best,

Phytonectar Oil Prevents Shade Fade

The Star Product


Dyed hair has a thirst problem. Moisture seals the cuticle, so the pigments can’t slip out. Best way to give hair a drink? Apply the right oils, says [Rita] Hazan. She likes Phytonectar Pre-Shampoo Ultra Nourishing Oil Treatment, which has egg yolk oil and vitamin E oil “to strengthen and bond damaged areas.” Use it one or two times a week and leave it on overnight; rinse out in the morning.

- As told by Women’s Health, September 2012

Hair Trend: The Wet Look

The Star Product

When it comes to declaring this summer’s ultimate hair trend, wet look is the clear winner. This sleek, high-shine look was seen all over the spring/summer 2012 fashion shows, including VPL’s New York Fashion Week Show where Bob Recine created a “just got out of the shower” hair look using PHYTO.

Give yourself a look-lasting wet hair look with the appropriately named Phyto Professional Wet Gel! In this month’s issue of GQ, Andrew Richdale names it one of his Good Hair Day products for summer. Check out the mention here!

Polished Spa Pedicures for May

Summer is hot on the heels of spring, so make sure your heels, toes, and everything in between are in perfect poolside shape with a pedicure from Polished Salon and Spa.

Get in a tropical state of mind with our Mango Pedicure special. For $55.00, we’ll pamper your feet with our Signature Pedicure that includes a therapeutic foot bath, exfoliating sugar scrub, and soothing lotion in an array of fun, juicy mango-based scents. We include a hydrating foot mask as well. To turn this treatment into a treat, we’ll also serve you a luscious frozen mango daiquiri as we get your feet ready for summer.

Choose a polish color that feels as sunny and summery as you do. Zoya’s new Sunshine collection contains beautiful metallics that range from tropical sunset shades like red Reva and plum-colored Faye to tart green Apple. Keep the mango theme going with Tanzy, a rich orange polish with gold shimmer.

If sparkle isn’t your style, go with Zoya’s Summertime hues. Sooki and Tamsen have you covered in red, while Mira and Breezi go for the cooler colors of vibrant violet and summer-sky blue. Pick sparkle for your toes and creme color for your hands or vice-versa; with so many gorgeous options, you can’t go wrong. Whether you go with sparkle or creme color, Zoya’s colors are “three-free” and contain no toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates, or camphor.

Another great pedicure option is our new line of Gelish colors. Gelish is a patented hybrid formulation that performs like a gel, but applies as easily as polish. It cures in minutes under ultraviolet light, making it perfect for a pedicure on the go. With Gelish on your nails, you won’t need a new manicure or pedicure for up to three weeks–that’s great for vacations.

You may not be able to spare the time for a beach vacation, but no matter how hectic your schedule is, take some time for yourself and enjoy a Mango Pedicure and a full set of fast-drying Gelish nails.

It’s Date Night!!

At Polished Salon and Spa, the chic hair salon of Harrisburg, PA we want to help you look and feel your absolute best on those special date night evenings. Toward that end, we’ve compiled the following list of our 5 all-time favorite Date Night Hairstyles. Now, let’s not delay the fun.

You’ll notice that some of the styles are soft and romantic, while others are sexy and bold. Working together with your trusted Polished stylist, you’re guaranteed a night of stunning beauty. Your hair and outfit will compliment one another perfectly.

To begin, consider the allure of sleek, straight strands. You can’t get much more Polished and refined than with shiny tresses. Be forewarned, this look will undoubtedly have him hoping to run his fingers through your hair. If you want to keep things on the ‘friends’ plane then you may want to consider another style.

For a softer, more romantic look consider teased waves. You know, the Taylor Swift sort of curls. Of course, you’ll need to consider your outfit. A darling, little, sleeveless, black dress would be perfect. Think Audrey Hepburn.

How about something a bit more flirtatious, like a side braid? With a deliberately tousled texture, this look can be comfortably stylish and playfully sexy at the same time. Think sundress and date on the beach, or a printed mini and a stroll in the garden, or silky wrap and fireside dinner.

If sophistication and panache are more your cup of tea, ask your Polished stylist for the ultra-romantic half updo. The posh chignon coupled with delicately streaming strands will definitely send him overboard. This is definitely not the I-just-want-to-be-friends style. That would be too cruel.

For something reminiscent of Natalie Portman in Black Swan, consider classic ballerina bun. The high topknot is ultra-chic, strong and sexy. It’s also refreshingly versatile. It does casual well, with jeans and a t-shirt. Then again, it’d be a lovely finish to a cute mini worn daringly with your favorite blazer. Anything goes.

Working with your Polished hair stylist has never been easier!

We’re celebrating New Beginnings this month at Polished Salon and Spa, your favorite hair salon Harrisburg has to offer! You can celebrate too with a fresh hair color customized to your complexion.

We invite you to come in and explore color with one of our expert colorists, Discuss what you hope to accomplish with the transformation. Bring along magazine cutouts and pictures of hair colors that attract your eye. No doubt, some of you will want drama. Others of you will ask for a soft enhancement of your skin’s natural glow. Whatever change you desire, we’ll make it happen.

If you’re considering a shade of brown, you’ll find that evaluating your skin tone is critical to the process of selecting the right shade. Brunettes with Anne Hathaway porcelain-like skin should avoid cooler shades. Instead, ask your stylist to show you some mink brown color samples. For added intrigue, consider strategically placed caramel and golden highlights. You’ll love the subtle, yet dramatic color improvement to your all-over complexion.

Regardless of how striking a change you hope to make, remember to harmonize your hair color with your skin tone, lifestyle, and age. As unflattering a thought as it may be, the truth is we lose pigment in our skin tone as we age. So, if you go too light blonde you’ll get a washed out look. To avoid making this mistake, consider honey tones.

Now, for dramatic change consider lightening up like Nicole Richie. Or, do just the opposite. Go from light to dark. Depending on the extent of change you desire we may need to lighten gradually. This is the only way to avoid the fried, straw-like effect. Between visits use a deeply penetrating conditioning product. This’ll make a world of difference.

And finally, to complete your look, consider tinting your brows. If you’ve never tried it, you’ll be amazed at the impact. It’ll bring together your whole new look.
