Time to Shake Things Up

I am a huge fan of the MOP (Modern Organic Products) line. We carry a wide variety of shampoos and conditioners, but I have been using the C-System Hydrating Shampoo and Moisturizing Conditioner for a long time. Last week, I though that my hair could use a change. I got MOP Glisten shampoo and conditioner and it's lighter and has a wonderful grapefruit scent. It's fortified with honey and maple syrup, which gives a great shine. I am loving it! Summer is a perfect time to change things up. Try using a different shampoo. Your hair will thank you.

Natural nail services

We use Zoya nail polish for all nail services because it's Toluene and Formaldehyde free. Formaldehyde in nail polish?!? It's true that many beauty products contain ingredients that are linked to endocrine disruption, carcinogens, and birth defects. Not only is Zoya the healthiest nail polish on the market, it also has the coolest colors! To learn more about Toluene and Formaldehyde in beauty products, check out the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) Skin Deep database at

Not for Girls Only...

We recently had a review posted on yelp! by a new client who called our place a "girl barbershop" - what could possibly be more fitting for relaxed hangout place like Salon Vertigo? Except that we do have a large male clientele as well...

Summer! Enjoy it while it lasts...

Today I want to focus on summer grooming.  The MOST important thing for me is a great pedicure!  A professionally done pedicure is a brilliant gift you can give yourself and keep enjoying for weeks.  We use Qtica and Zoya nail products for low toxicity, long lasting results.  All Zoya nail polishes are formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate and camphor free for the most gentle treatment to your nails with the longest lasting wear.
Our Spa pedicure is done with a jet spa whirlpool tub and features scrumptious seasonal lotions and scrubs.  Don't have the time for a salon pedi?  We sell all of the products that we use for our nail treatments for salon results at home or to maintain your luxury treatments yourself.
