The days are getting longer. The weather is getting warmer, and flowers are blooming. Everywhere you look, spring is in the air. It’s a glorious season full of fresh, natural beauty. This spring, we’re embracing a more natural look when it comes to beauty as well. We sat down with salon co-owner and colorist Maggie Ponicsan to hear about this season’s color trend she’s obsessed with.


Maggie says she’s living for the naturally undone, lived-in look with natural vibes. She’s inspired by hair color that looks less contrived, replacing strong contrast with seamless baby highlights. It’s simple and minimal¬—think classically chic with a modern twist. If you, like us, are fan-girling over this look, start a conversation with your colorist about scaling your color back.

Another refreshing change she’s making with her clients is to warm things up. This means being okay with the natural warmth that is exposed when you brighten up your hair. Embrace the concept of a buttery blonde or a rich brunette. Another reason we love adding a little warmth: brighter hair makes your hair look healthier.

As the best salon in the San Francisco Bay area, we know one size doesn’t really fit all, especially when it comes to hair color. That’s why we offer custom color and Special Effect services to tailor your look just for you. The service starts with your colorist examining your hair with fresh eyes along with a conversation about your desired look and how best to achieve it. From highlights to full coverage and everything in between, our custom color is specifically designed for you, every time.

Special Effects really takes your color to the next level by adding a few highlights in just the right places. To complement your new color that’s warmer and authentic-looking, we recommend adding a treatment to enhance the brilliance and luster. Maggie suggests the customizable, instant Kérastase treatments—so you can ask your stylist which concoction will work best for you.

Bonus: We have a new hair care line hitting our salon shelves soon: Christophe Robin is a home regimen for color-treated hair.
