Miju Van Salon Styles Coachella

May 22, 2017 9:53:35 AM


Coachella has travelled far from its roots as a grungy music festival to something more like a free for all fashion show. It usually comes with a wave of free spirited behavior, so when people change their hair for it they’re looking for two simple things: Easy maintenance and a lot more color. Fashion bloggers and Youtubers the world over travel to southern California adorned in meticulously planned outfits, some of them getting their hair ready weeks in advance. So the festival season is really a time for people like James Miju and the team at Miju Van Salon to shine.

The male hairstyling movement is in full swing right now. Or at least, this iteration of it. Male grooming has always been a big thing. We just talk about it differently depending on the decade we’re in. Beards are big right now. That will almost certainly change in the next few years, but what won’t change quite so quickly is the way we talk to men about their personal appearance. Even with the growing comfort with men in salons, there’s still a certain stigma about how they approach their appearance outside the salon, and in consultation they still like to be reassured that they’ll retain a certain image of masculinity. It sounds like pandering, and that’s exactly what it is. But if you’re a stylist looking to take in male clients, the man’s hair consultation is something you need to put a little thought into.

Pick a magazine with your eyes closed and you’ll find a Spring 2017 hair trend gallery. That’s cool. We like looking at hair trends, even if they look like the same trend we got last year. But after combing through all the spring hair buzz, we have to ask: Where are the curls?

5 Ways Stylists Can Avoid Back Problems

The hair styling life comes with three major problems.


  1. Clients who don’t know what they want.

  2. Slaying too hard.

  3. Back problems.

You can fix the first one with the second one. Unfortunately, slaying like a samurai master with a pair of scissors is often fixed by the third problem: musculoskeletal problems. In fact, back problems are the number one health concerns for hair stylists, followed quickly by sore feet, nutrition, and carpal tunnel. For your average 9 to 5 office jockey, back problems might not be big game changers, but for hair stylists, if the back, legs, or hands go out, it puts your career at risk. And if you’re working 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, it isn’t if you’ll have back problems, it’s when. You aren’t doomed though. There are a few simple things you can start doing every day that will help keep your future back problems in check.

That’s not an ideal state of mind for someone who’s supposed to relieving stress all day. If you’ve been looking for some decent, sturdy massage furniture, you need something reliable, and preferably light, that can take a few hundred pounds without making you worry.

New Year Hair Transformations

Jan 31, 2017 11:54:01 AM


It’s a new year, spring is inching closer and people are starting to get an itch for change. And that means new hair styles. We’ve  been seeing a lot of hair color transformations while we spend too much time scrolling through Instagram lately. There are a lot of bright colors coming back into the world, and even though we enjoyed the ice queen winter changes a few months back (and even though spring is still a ways away), it’s refreshing to see hair bloom again. Here are a few of our favorites so far.

One of the worst things you can do after setting up your salon equipment is to leave it alone and pretend it can take care of itself. Whether it’s styling chairs, shampoo chairs, or manicure tables, your equipment needs regular cleaning and maintenance. Most of it really doesn’t take that much effort, and with a little care and attention, even cheap salon equipment can give you years of reliable use.
