Variation Hair Design has been pampering the Burlington community for over four decades.  Offering beauty and spa treatments in a welcoming and luxurious atmosphere, clients can indulge in a variety of services including massage, pedicures, manicures, foot baths and more.  Variation Hair Design specializes in hair and the full service hair salon provides professional cuts, styling, up-dos and colouring.

The chemicals used to colour hair can leave it dry, dull and rough.  When shampooing and conditioning, the team at Variation Hair Design recommend you try to avoid oversaturating coloured hair with excessive rinsing and just let the water run over your head for a few minutes.  Coloured hair is more porous and therefore absorbs water easily which will dilute and fade the colour quicker.  As the water is rinsed away, so is some of the colour.  Heat also weakens the hair colour so it’s best not to use water that is too hot.  To boost your colour and make it last longer, use a colour protect shampoo which is formulated to be gentle and protective.  

If possible, let your hair air dry until it’s only slightly damp before pulling out the heating tools like hair dryers and straighteners.  To keep your hair looking and feeling healthy, use a leave-in conditioner or mask once a week, and pick up a gloss with serum or shine spray.  These products bounce back the light, giving your hair a shiny glow. They also contain UV filters to ward off any fading from the sun’s harmful rays.

Variation Hair Design can help create a more beautiful you.  The salon is located at 1500 Upper Middle Road in Burlington, in the Tyandaga Plaza.  For more information on products and services, or to book an appointment, please call 905-336-2141.  Variation Hair Design is open Monday to Saturday.
