Summertime and the livin’ is easy… at tm.

The official start to summer is two and a half weeks away, but with the pools open, schools letting out and the constant smell of charcoal in the air, it's already been summertime for awhile in Indianapolis.

The new season means a lot for your skin, hair... and social life. Luckily your favorite salon and spa has great summer deals and services to have your best looking summer to date. Leave the kids at home (we know how much you miss putting them on the bus after like, week three) and come to one of our fun, informative, and no-kids-present workshops or events.

Services

Your new bathing suit looks great, but will people notice the unstoppable floral pattern or the spot you missed shaving? Hair down there is a nuisance, to say the least, and shaving can be a fickle, fickle beast.

Waxing is a longer lasting and more effective alternative to shaving, and with the Dare to Bare waxing discount from our summer service menu, you can skip the razor and save. When you come in for a bikini wax, you'll receive 20% off an arm or a leg wax if it's done the same day! Imagine going weeks without having to shave your legs... ahhh.

Your hair is super susceptible to weather induced damage, and never more so than when the seasons change. To put it simply, your winter hair regimen won't work with the increased temperatures, insane amount of humidity and exposure to chlorine (and whatever else is in the public pool.)

It may be that all the change you need is a healthy trim and the addition of a relaxing fluid or sea salt spray to your morning, but that's something you can talk to your stylist about when you come in for a Summer Split End Repair treatment. This vitamin-packed, detoxifying treatment uses living enzymes and a restructuring mask to leave your hair silky soft and fortified, plus it's finished with a dusting of your ends and a super sleek blowout that when paired with those wedges... dang girl.

Brightening your locks is basically a requirement for polishing off the sun-kissed style that looks so good on ya. For those of you who don't love all-over or chunky highlights you MUST check out this video about Flamboyage. It's super subtle and natural, but the results are stunning. It's offered exclusively at Davines color salons, and Tyler Mason is proud to offer this incredible technique!

We think these services are the essentials, but if you're looking to pamper yourself this summer, we of course have you covered on that front. Our Raindrop Body Treatment, Asian Crushed Pearl Facial and Bamboo & Orchid Indulgence Manicure/Pedicure from our summer service menu are the perfect hot weather indulgences, and only available through August!

Beachy, beautiful waves are probably never going to go out of style, so for you lucky few who were born with goddess hair, good for you but know that the rest of us secretly want to see you have a bad hair day for once.

And for those of us who have to work a little harder to achieve the gorgeous and low maintenance summer 'do, Davines Sea Salt Spray just became your partner in crime for the summer. It's basically exactly how the name describes it, and recreates that "just left the beach" type of wave us Hoosiers can only dream about. Just spray it in your damp hair and lightly scrunch it if your hair is on the straighter side. For maximum body you can braid your hair the night before, and then use a spray bottle to make it damp again when you're ready to style. Just don't say we didn't warn you about the looks of envy you'll get from ladies who haven't read our blog yet.

Then there are some of us who just can't get our hair to curl no matter how hot our iron or how strong our hairspray. And it's DEFINITELY not going to do it on it's own, plus some salt water. And for women like you, humidity is your worst nightmare.

We suggest Davines Relaxing Moisturizing Fluid for your warm weather woes. The product description claims up front that it's humidity-PROOF, and if you know Davines you know they tell no lies. It will help control your hair to maintain a perfectly straight look and completely eliminate frizz. Follow up your beachy waves or sleek and straight look with Davines Strong Hold Hairspray for hair that will last all day.

Makeup produces it's own woes during warm months, and we've all been there ladies - a perfect face of makeup can melt off and turn into a shiny mess on any given 90 degree day. We have all sorts of suggestions in our armory, like using a face primer or a setting spray, but if we had to choose just one must-have piece of makeup to have with you this summer, it's our Invisible Blotting Powder. It's a translucent powder that can be used under and on top of your makeup, any time of day, however often you want! It will soak up sweat and completely eliminate shine, plus provide a lasting, protective barrier between your makeup and the heat.

 Promotions & Events

We're well know for a few things: the best hair in Indy, a little thing called the Colts Cheerleaders, and of course, the superb customer service we strive to give each and every one of our guests. Which is why our summer calendar is full of promotions and events for you to take advantage of. Sure we're your favorite salon and spa, but we also want to be a destination for you - a place you can go for education, to get away for a few hours, to be around women with the same questions and interests as you.

Our next event will focus on aging skin and ways to prevent it. The Ageless Beauty event will feature women's health expert Robin Eldib who will discuss hormone loss and how it affects our skin, and ways to prevent it through natural diet and exercise. Our tm estheticians Lori and Alyssa will demonstrate our NuFace anti-aging toning device and discuss makeup techniques and tricks for mature skin. The event is on June 26 from 6-8:30 pm and registration is happening now!

In July we'll celebrate Military Family Appreciation Month. The freedom and independence we all celebrate in July wouldn't be possible without sacrifices from these families, which is why we're offering them 20% off services in both the salon and spa! 

We'll also host our second Style Lab in July. Earlier this year we held our first Style Lab to teach our guests how to create beautiful salon curls at home. This time we'll show you how to create polished and professional hairstyles that take 5 minutes or less - perfect for busy mornings (or every morning)! Be on the lookout for registration later this summer.

To finish out our summer strong we'll host a... wait for it... SPArty in August! That's right, our Sparty, or spa party, will be an exclusive event with sample services, snacks, music, beverages that are alcoholic in nature, and special savings on products and services. 

So to sum things up, it's going to be a splendid summer here at Tyler Mason, and we hope you'll join us. Always check our promotions page to find out what's new and happening, and be sure to get social with us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest!
