Armando's Salon Makes Every Day A Good Hair Day

By Pamela Sosnowski

Living in a dry climate that experiences abundant sunshine year-round can be hard on hair, but those living in the Albuquerque area have a trusted business they can go to: Armando's Salon. The salon specializes in hair and provides a variety of services to keep tresses stay in tip-top shape, or to change up a client's look.

"Armando's Salon offers a variety of hair color services ranging from custom color blocking, color rebalancing, balayage (a graduated, natural effect), ombres, and foiling," says the salon's owner, Jill Caskie. "We provide texture services to create wave or curls, and smoothing services to control frizz and add manageability and shine. We also offer extension services for both hair and eyelashes."

As a Bumble and Bumble salon, the staff receives continuing education every month on the latest hair trends and products. Pricing is based on a level system with stylists rated between level 1 and 4AA depending upon their years of experience, accomplishments, and goals reached along their way to becoming master/senior stylists. Haircuts and styling are available for both men and women and the salon also performs skin waxing, deep conditioning treatments, brow tinting, and bangs and beard trimming.

One of Armando's specialties is hair extensions. The staff uses the So-Cap extension system in which human hair is individually bonded to the client's strands for the most natural looking results. Extensions can be used to add length and fullness to a head of hair, create special color effects, or provide depth via highlights or lowlights. There are over 80 custom shades to choose from with So-Cap extensions, and Armando's stylists work with clients to create a look that is customized just for them. Eyelash extensions and eyelash maintenance is also available to give the client's own eyelashes a fuller, longer look without the need for removal false eyelashes.

For occasions such as weddings, proms, and other events, the staff is able to perform up-dos, styling, and makeup application for that special day or evening. For hair that requires some TLC due to chemical treatments, heat, the New Mexican weather, the stylists provide complimentary assessments. Says Caskie, "Knowing which treatment is right for your hair will ensure the best results; our consultations are always free!"

No matter what the client's needs, the salon prides itself on providing exceptional service and making sure every customer has a great hair day. "Armando's strives to develop relationships with our clientele and community through our charitable events and team spirit," says Caskie. "We would like everyone to know that we are an amazing group of passionate and talented professional stylists. Each and every team member has dedicated themselves to continuing education, so that we may provide our guests an outstanding service experience."
