Women and Girl’s Haircut

Men and Boy’s Haircut
Leave it to our expert professionals to create various looks, on trend styles, and precise short trims and cuts for easy grooming and maintenance for the everyday man.
From wet to dry…After a luxurious, shampoo and conditioning treatment, each stylist applies heat and combs through with the professional tools used to infuse bounce into your hair while eliminating frizz from root to tip. Cactus Stylists will blow dry your hair based on current haircut and which style will offer you the salon quality flip everyone desires to achieve, but can’t at home.
Consult with our amazing Cactus Stylists to select the right casual or regal updo for you. An updo hair style involves arranging the hair off your face, neck, and shoulders instead of allowing it to fall freely. It may be as simple as a ponytail, but is more commonly associated with more elaborate styles intended for special occasions such as prom or wedding. Updos require a skilled expert as we have here at Cactus Salon, but expectations may vary depending on length and hair-type.
Consult with our Cactus Stylists to determine which type of extensions are not only right for you but will provide the most natural look when blending in with your hair. Priced accordingly based on length, color, highlights, brand, quality, quantity, and total process of completion.
One step color provided by our specialists. Complimentary wash.
Single Process means that a new color or toner is applied all over to create a new base color. The hair is lifted and deposited in one easy step. It’s the most common out of the two, and it’s wonderful for covering grays and adding shininess to dull hair.
Double Process is typically used when lightening hair by more than two shades. First the hair is bleached to remove natural or colored hair pigments, and then pigment is added into the hair to create the desired shade. To avoid hair drama, leave this one to the pros.
Single Process (Inoa Color)
Organic color is applied. INOA Hair Color (which stands for Innovative No Ammonia) is, according to its manufacturer L’Oreal, a revolutionary new hair color system that does not contain ammonia and has “supreme respect for the hair”.
Partial Foil Highlights (half head)
Used for lowlights, highlights, add depth, and enrich color and tones to provide the desired contrast you are looking for to stay on trend. A partial foil service uses about 20 foils or less to foil the crown, roots and side hairline. It’s important to note that a partial foil service does not mean foils will be placed around the entire head – just the top.
Full Foil Highlights (full head)
Depending on maintenance and your desired results, the added sections in which foil is being applied may offer a more dramatic result to complete your look. A full foil service consists of placing between 45 and 100 foils around the entire head, depending on the person’s hair and color goal. A full foil includes foiling underneath your hair. So, if you pull your hair up in a ponytail or similar fashion, you’ll always want to have a full foil.
Ombre is a process of lightening the middle to ends of hair with a seamless, undetectable color gradation that can be grown out gracfully or retouched as often as needed. Ombre Hair Lightning service is a specialty service and prices vary. Please schedule a consultation if you have further questions about Ombre Hair Lightning Services.
A color gloss is a non-permanent color that is used for many different reasons. Most commonly, a gloss is used to make your existing color more dramatic or to create subtle change. Regardless, if you are a brunette, red head or blonde your hair will naturally fade from the sun and frequent shampooing. A gloss has the ability to refresh your color while also conditioning it. Glossing your hair is also a great option for those of you who want to get your feet wet with hair color. A gloss will only last 5 to 6 weeks so you can have fun shifting your color to caramel brown, honey, rose gold or strawberry blonde without the commitment of permanent color.
A glaze (also known as a toner) is a non-peroxide hair color with a sheer shade option that helps achieve that perfect blonde tone and seal in an extra four to six weeks of shine. A glaze/toner can also be used to correct hair color. For example, your color can become dull or a bit brassy from the sun, environment or shampooing. A glaze is conditioning and non-damaging, so you are able to pop into your salon in-between highlights for a quick refresher for your highlights.
Corrective hair color is a color process that must be performed by a professional hair colorist to correct any and all damage or an unwanted result caused by a color service gone wrong. This could be a result from over processed hair being “pushed too far” by too many processes, or if you colored your hair at home and your hair turned black instead of the warm brown shown on the box.
Your hair is in a stressed and weakened condition when you walk in the door. Because of the caution necessary to perform services on fragile hair, it could take several visits to achieve the final result. The stylist will give you different options with your hair with different prices so you can choose what is best for you. The stylist will also recommend certain hair treatments and products to get your hair back in the best condition possible so that it will accept color correctly.
Not to worry, Cactus Salon will get you back on track to looking your best and restoring shine, beauty, and style back into your hair. Optimal health always completes the look!
Keratin Glazing Smoothing & Color Lock
Not only does the Keratin Glazing service provide outwardly healthy shine and a sleek look, it actually resurfaces the hair by coupling pure keratin protein with special silicones providing long-lasting shine, smoothness and protection. After the service, clients are strongly recommended to take the unparalleled Keratin Fusion Restructurizer and Thermal Insulator home to ensure stronger, more beautiful hair longer.
While the thought of a perm may bring to mind root-to-tip ringlets, perms can be used to achieve a sleek look too. The treatment applied to hair during a perm smooths the cuticle, and allows it to mold to the shape that it is set in. If curlers are not applied after the solution, the hair will only be smoothed. Use a perm to straighten your hair, and enjoy more manageable tresses for up to three months.
Keratin Smoothing Treatment
Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is different. Conventional straighteners or relaxers may break the protein bonds within the hair’s structure, causing each strand to reform into a permanently straight shape. Keratin’s revolutionary technology does not break the hair’s bonds, instead delivering the versatility of smoother, healthier-looking hair that can be styled wavy or straight as desired. Keratin Complex’s signature keratin works effectively on all hair types. Our unique Smoothing Therapy treatments contain high concentrations of keratin that penetrate throughout the hair structure, and then are sealed within the cortex to repair damage.
