Harry Potter Fans Embrace Butterbeer Hair Color

Modern salon furniture is not something that’s discussed in the Harry Potter books, as their focus on fashion skews more towards wearing robes and house colors. But unless they’re Muggles, everyone in the realm of the Harry Potter books knows about and enjoys the beverage butterbeer.

But you don’t have to be part of the wizarding community to enjoy butterbeer in a unique way that is predicted to be a trend in 2018 — butterbeer as a hair color.

In the Harry Potter books, Butterbeer is a yellow beer-like beverage described as tasting “a little bit like less-sickly butterscotch.” It has a slight alcoholic content, and Harry and his fellow students from Hogwarts buy it when visiting the nearby village of Hogsmeade.

In the real world, butterbeer is served at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios, and press materials describe the drink as “reminiscent of shortbread and butterscotch,” according to Fox News.

In Bon Appetit’s January 2002 issue, J.K. Rowling, author of the book series, was asked what butterbeer tastes like, and she said: “I made it up.”

Universal said the version they sell, which is sold in two varieties, regular and frozen, was tasted and approved by Rowling.The regular version is drawn from a tap like beer, then whipped topping is added. They have declined to share the recipe, but the recipe below is a version shared by Fox. Just don’t use it on your hair.

And as for butterbeer hair color? It is various shades of butterscotch yellow, as you can imagine. You can see photos of butterbeer hair color on Revelist here.

BUTTERBEER

1 cup light or dark brown sugar

2 tablespoons water

6 tablespoon butter

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon cider vinegar

3/4 cup heavy cream, divided

1/2 teaspoon rum extract

Four 12-ounce bottles cream soda

In a small saucepan over medium, combine the brown sugar and water. Bring to a gentle boil and cook, stirring often, until the mixture reads 240 F on a candy thermometer.

Stir in the butter, salt, vinegar and 1/4 heavy cream. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

Once the mixture has cooled, stir in the rum extract.

In a medium bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar mixture and the remaining 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Use an electric mixer to beat until just thickened, but not completely whipped, about 2 to 3 minutes.

To serve, divide the brown sugar mixture between 4 tall glasses (about 1/4 cup for each glass). Add 1/4 cup of cream soda to each glass, then stir to combine. Fill each glass nearly to the top with additional cream soda, then spoon the whipped topping over each.

High-tech device analyzes hair

The right modern salon furniture from Regal Hair can make your salon look almost futuristic. But one exhibitor at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) showed a high-tech device that salons could use in the future to analyze your hair and recommend or formulate the right products for you.

Henkel, a German consumer goods company, will use augmented reality to, among other things, take the guesswork out of hair coloring for stylists. For example, a CNN reporter was able to “see” in virtual reality what her blonde hair would look like if it was colored in realistic tones of brown and red.

The SalonLab Analyzer analyzes the inner condition of hair, its moisture level and “true color” using a high-tech handheld device outfitted with infrared and light sensors. The readings from the device are analyzed by a proprietary algorithm that uses a digitized hair model to produce one of 128 different shampoo combinations for the client based specifically on his or her hair analysis.

The system produced the custom shampoo in seconds, and a barcode enables customers to order more online.

Henkel plans to offer the systems to select U.S. and European salons with in the U.S. and Europe later this year.

Elvis has left the building at Regal Hair salon supply store

If you are looking to furnish your hair salon with the best furniture and equipment, you need a salon supply store like Regal USA, which features the best salon furniture from Italian supplier Ceriotti.

But there is one salon that decided to go in another direction when it came to salon décor, according to the Register-Mail, a newspaper in Galesburg, Illinois.

Jackie’s Hair care is a shrine to Elvis Presley, and the salon is decorated with everything related to the King of Rock and Roll.

Jackie Wagher is the owner of Jackie’s Hair Care and calls herself one of Elvis’ biggest fans. In the salon, which is located in th basement of her home, you will find among the Elvis items Elvis dinnerware and a lamp that showcases Elvis in Jailhouse Rock singing and swinging his hips.

The 58-year-old hair stylist collects Elvis memorabilia, and decided to share her love of the King with the clients who visit her home salon. Karen Fields, one of Wagher’s regular clients, calls the decorations “tastefully done.”

Wagher said she developed her love of Elvis when her mother, June Graham, played Elvis records and the two of them danced to the music in their kitchen when she was growing up.

She started collecting Elvis memorabilia when she was 15. She enjoyed the movies that Elvis made at the height of his fame, and a poster for her favorite, “Spinout,” hangs above the stairs to her salon. She also has a painting of Elvis on velvet.

Elvis Presley passed away due to heart failure August 16, 1977, at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee. He was 42 years old.

If you want to furnish your hair salon in a more conventional way, Regal USA offers the best in salon supplies, including top of the line salon furniture from Cerioti, a premiere Italian furniture producer.

Superfoods keep your skin looking younger

Update your salon this shopping season

Halloween is over, and a trip to any store will confirm that the Christmas holiday shopping season has begun. The decorations are up, Christmas music is playing on the loudspeakers and in some places, Santa has already arrived.

The National Retail Foundation (NRF) expects retail sales in November and December to increase between 3.6 and 4 percenceriotti eva stylist chairt over last year for a total of $678.75 billion to $682 billion, up from $655.8 billion in 2016.

Consumers say they will spend an average $967.13 during this year’s shopping season, according to an annual survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics. That’s up 3.4 percent from the $935.58 consumers predicted they would spend last year.

Although the 2016 shopping season got off to a cautious start because of the uncertainty caused by the presidential election, total holiday retail sales during November and December increased 4 percent over 2015, exceeding NRF’s initial forecast of $655.8 billion.

Shoppers said they not only planned to purchase gifts for friends, family members and co-workers, but many also planned to take advantage of sales to buy something extra for themselves or their families.

Mishaps bring unwelcome visitors to salons

Working in a salon can be an adventure – you never know who might walk through the door. Or even crash through the window.

A successful salon is focused on style and service, but a safe environment for clients and employees is just as important.

A deer who likely was not looking for hair styling services stopped by a Sports Clips Haircuts in Springfield, Missouri last week without an appointment.

The animal smashed through the window of the hair salon, according to Fox News. The deer’s sudden appearance was caught on surveillance cameras, and the salon posted the video on its Facebook page  with the caption: “Our four-legged buddy in Missouri just couldn’t wait to treat himself to the MVP Experience — he crashed right through the front door!”

The deer left the premises when a man held the door open for it.

And in Jacksonville, Florida, several stylists barely escaped injury when a car came crashing into the salon. The elderly driver, who was arriving for a hair appointment, accidentally hit the gas instead of the brakes and came through the front window, according to CBS 47.

The incident also damaged the cell phone business on the other side of the wall.

In general, hair salons are a safe place to work – when deer and elderly clients aren’t crashing through the windows. The staff at a quality salon will be trained to operate the salon in a safe manner. Sanitation and accident prevention will be taken into consideration, as well as evacuation procedures if there is an emergency.

With the right equipment and products, a salon can make clients feel relaxed and at home. Regal Hair provides salons with the best-quality furniture and equipment, including Cerotti furniture made in Italy. For more information about the best salon equipment, visit the Regal Hair website here.
