Product Review: Pravana Perfection SmoothOut

Sorella predicts that you will start to see Pravana as an alternative straightening system comparative to the Brazilian Blowout or Keratin treatments. We decided to put it to the test!

After trying out the Pravana Perfection SmoothOut on one of our loyal Sorella guests, we definitely DO NOT  want to offer it. Our trusted sylists and our guest alike were very disappointed with the results.

Pravana promises to transform coarse, frizzy hair to smooth and manageable hair. Although this treatment straightened the hair as promised, the downsides greatly outweighed the benefits! Find out why we are not a fan.

Glittery Half Moon Nail Art

After you paint your nails with a base color, apply glitter polish at the base of the nail in a moon shape. I used a sea foam green polish with silver glitter for a snowy, winter look. For a more dramatic look, use contrasting colors.

New Product: Mason Pearson Hair Brushes

Handmade in England and developed and patented over 100 years ago, the Mason Pearson hair brush is one of a kind.

But why should you get one? What makes this brush better than any other brush? Well I’m glad you asked!

The unique rubber-cushion pad massages and gently stimulates your scalp as you brush. Scalp massage is important to a healthy life as it increases blood flow to your brain. This helps relieve stress and tension and can even improve your mood. Scalp massage also stimulates the hair follicles which in turn stimulates hair growth.

Another benefit is that you won’t have to purchase another brush for quite some time. Although they are not indestructible, Mason Pearson brushes are built to last and are made with the finest materials. For $125 you can experience the Mason Pearson Junior brush for yourself and take the step toward better hair care. This is a $15 savings from Nordstrom and Sephora so don’t miss out!

Now available for purchase at all three Sorella locations.
