A Back To School Hair Season Like No Other

A back to school hair season like no other

The 2023 back-to-school season brings many different hairstyles, hair perms, hair straightening, hair color, hair loss systems, in-transition looks, and hair extensions. The common buzz cut and hair trim is no longer! 

Mom's are bringing in their children of all ages, for some unique services!

Hair Extensions

Many kids opted for a shorter hairstyle such as the LOB (long bob), with great regret. Most moms expected their hair to grow in during the summer, but some kids' hair was damaged by chlorine and weather.  

Many teens have asked for hair extensions, in my opinion, it is best for them to wait until they are at least 18, but we have clients around 16 years old.  

We have elongated some LOBS with hair extensions, the good news is that a young persons hair will grow quickly -- and their hair should be longer in a few months.

Accent pieces are quite popular, we have added some cool purple, blue, pink strands for some pizazz!

Boys Mop Hair Cut With A Gentle Perm

The shaggy mop cut is super popular, but boys with straight hair are looking for texture! Young boys love the look with a gentle perm, which means we use large perm rods to create hair bends. We do not leave the perm solution as long as we do for conventional perming. 

One caveat, the hair must be at least four inches long for us to use a large perm rod which will not render the hair too curly!

Hair Straightening

Some young people with curly hair, especially extremely tight curl patterns, choose to either loosen their curl or straighten their hair.

A Brazilian Blowout Keratin Treatment is an anti-frizz treatment that will smooth long hair, but not straighten permanently! It is best suited for long hair and will infuse protein into the hair. The treatment lasts up to three months and will keep hair smooth.

Texturizing is a reverse perm that gently loosens tight curls, but does not completely straighten hair. This is best for those who want to control their curl, and the treatment is permanent. This is best for short hair since it can be cut away over time.

Fantasy Color

Fantasy shades include vivid colors such as blue-violet, pastel shades such as lilac, or mixes of both. This color is quite a commitment but seems to be adored by so many going back to school.

For most with darker hair color, we need to lighten the hair using bleach. I do not recommend bleaching a young person's hair. I often recommend these fantasy colors be applied to those with light hair, particularly if their hair has lightened by the sun.

Hair Toppers & Wigs

Imagine the anxiety for young people with hair loss, the good news is that we affix hair toppers in the safest way possible, without gluing or shaving. A hair topper is best for one that will properly care for it. Many high schoolers and college students wear hair toppers, and they look perfectly natural.

We stock hair toppers in all colors, textures, cap sizes, and textures. We can also customize for a perfect match. Hair loss can occur in many conditions ie.; alopecia, lupus, trichotillomania, medications, and more.

Wigs are better suited for the very young with hair loss, we can specialize in small cap sizes to fit the head perfectly. It is best to clip the hairpiece on and off, which makes a wig more secure.  


We work with a lot of young people in transition, particularly male to female. Many take the opportunity to start off the school year with their new hairstyle. We offer free consultations to help advise what will work best for them; haircut, style, wig, topper, color, and more. 

All of the above services make "back to School 2023," very unique! We also offer the traditional cut for all genders!
