Lauren Takes On The Unite Academy


This past weekend our lovely apprentice, Lauren, packed her bags and headed to California for a Unite Academy training session! We sat down to get all the good details of her adventures to the sunny state.

1. Tell Me About Your Trip:

A few months ago I was approached by Emma, where she presented me with the opportunity to travel to California and attend this round of Unite classes. It was taught by Nine Zero One Salon Academy at the Unite Headquarters in California. It was three classes rolled into one and laid out over two days, making it was very comprehensive, exciting and informative. The topic was all things related to beach hair, including cuts, color, style and braids.


2. What Was One Thing You Learned:

They had some great information on color formulation. This is a topic I’ve been eager to learn more about and I was really excited to gain knowledge on.


3. Tell Me Some Highlights Of The Classes:

It was great being able to do so much hands on work and was nice that the classes were so jammed packed with information. I also really enjoyed getting to meet hairstylists from all around the country.


4. What Techniques Did You Learn That You Can Use In The Salon Today?

I feel like everything was applicable to bring back to the chair. From the balyage application to the braid style outs, everything was tailored for actual use in the salon as opposed to avant guard style.


5. Is There Anything Else You Would Like To Add?

Overall it was an incredibly inspiring and educational experience. From getting to see the warehouse to where they do their photo shoots to getting to meet the Unite team. Going behind the scenes was really great. The Nine Zero One Salon Academy staff was also incredible. I enjoyed getting to learn from such a professional and talented group of people.

The Three Day Curl

In today’s glam world we completely understand the problems that occur from being busy. Between work, a personal life, and wearing those 6 inch heels us glam girls hardly have time to keep our primping up to par! At Sirens we are all about making you look fabulous and having the look be attainable in your every-day life. And our recent visit from Unite Hair Care educator, David Fletcher, left us feeling empowered to do just that!

We took his advice and changed our outlook on a product we already so dearly loved. The result… three day curls!

Blow & Set is a product you will usually find us combing through wet hair to give your locks style memory and shine. Fletcher mesmerized us when taking the product and working it through dry hair. A simple blow to smooth over the product infused hair and a piece-by-piece curl with a flat iron will leave  you with waves for days. Literally!

The photos above show our Blow & Set Curls over the span of three days. From tight ringlets to a boho wave, you are sure to be able to manage this dangerously beautiful look!

We recently had the opportunity to rock another Todd White photo shoot, something we love to do oh so very much! Lauren and Raven transformed this theater major into a vintage Hollywood beauty in a matter of hours.

A simple coat of Unite BOOSTA Spray, a volumizing tonic, and a spritz of blow-n-set took her locks from curly to straight. To create the illusion of finger waves, we used a curling iron throughout her entire head and finished by setting the curls at the front of her head.

We took a romantic approach for her makeup. Staying pink on the cheeks and contrasting with a deep, dark eye. We highlighted her eye with a gold tone, and added the perfect final pop with a burgundy lip.
