Really excited to get my hair cut and colored by Sarah Bandy at Blue Gardenia Organic Hair Salon @bluegardenia.atx at @salonmystique.belterra. I appreciate that Sarah has gone to great lengths (ha hair puns!) to research and find lower toxin, organic hair care products like for coloring. I’m attentive to what I put in and on my body, but hadn’t really thought of my hair products the same way until now. And I was truly surprised that she was able to achieve the same great color as traditional products. I highly recommend her for an awesome hair update and experience! Plus she plays beautiful Billie Holiday swing era music in her salon which further goes to show she has great taste. #organichaircare #organichaircolor #organichairsalon

Am I the only one who gets anxious about projects like this? 😬

I was so excited when my sign finally arrived! Like, “Yes! I'm getting it up tomorrow!” and then I unpacked it and got stressed. So I packed it back up and decided to “try again tomorrow”. This played out four days in a row before I was frustrated enough with myself to just do it 🙄

So the next time you’re in the salon and see my big beautiful sign, just know, it's a big freakin’ deal...😂

I’ve been sitting here trying to come up with something to post and feeling frustrated. Because the truth is, I am bad at social media 🙄

That’s the truth. I don’t post enough, I don’t show enough of my work, I don’t even remember to take pictures as often as I should 🤦🏻‍♀️

I made a commitment this year that I would work on it. That this was THE YEAR that I would make my social media game strong 💪🏼 And, well…

I am working on it though. I look back at my business pages over the last two years and I see improvement. It’s a process, right? 😐

What’s something you struggle with that you’d like to improve?

Let's talk about “Wellness” 🤔

I think the word is tossed around too much. Its become commodified. Companies throw it out there to promote all kinds of things but do they really care about our wellbeing? 🤷🏻‍♀️

To my mind, Wellness isn't a product. It's being deeply in tune with ourselves, consciously bring balance to our inner and outer lives. Like spending quality time with people we love and equally prioritizing solo time to recharge. Taking care of our bodies through exercise and nutrition but also giving ourselves permission to take a day off and live a little. Letting yourself experience pain and tears and also lean into joy and silliness. 🤗

What does Wellness mean to you? What needs to shift in your life to allow your inner and outer worlds to be in alignment? 💖

Dad appreciation post! 🕺

I just want to shine a spotlight on this guy right here. Without him, the new shop would not be as put together as it. Fact, I would still be working out of boxes without his help!🥳

This is him figuring out how to repair a piece of furniture that arrived severely damaged. I desperately needed it and had no time to find a replacement before opening day. It was just one of several mini-disasters he salvaged during the move-in. 😩

He's a holistic doc, so there’s the whole apple/tree thing. He's taught me everything I know about carpentry, which is admittedly very little because it goes in one ear and out the other. But that just means I call on him when nonsense like this happens.🤷🏻‍♀️

Fortunately, he doesn't seem to mind. Thanks for always showing up dad! Love you bunches! 💖

The number 1 most common question I get about hair loss...

“Is it too late?” 🥺

Answer: We won’t know unless we try!

I know the frustration of spending money and time and energy trying seemingly everything on the market that claims to reverse hair loss with little to no result. Or getting good results along with developing terrible and scary side effects! 😱

The fact is, when it comes to hair loss, everyone responds to different treatments, well...differently! And everyone who finds their way to me has tried their fair share of tinctures, lasers, potions, and pills. I can't guarantee results but I can say, though I've seen some clients have more amazing results than others, I've never seen someone have zero results. You may never have the hair you had in your 20’s but you can regain your confidence and feel like yourself again with ZERO side effects. 🥳

I offer consultations and scalp analysis in the salon as well as virtual consultations for anyone outside of Austin. Link in bio

The number 1 most common myth I hear about hair loss...

“I take insert hair vitamin purchased on Instagram here, shouldn't that be enough?” 🤷🏻‍♀️

Answer: Ummm, no.

There are a TON of “hair vitamins” on the market right now. Many of which are helpful in providing nutrients that encourage hair growth and strength. Here’s the rub though, if you’re actively experiencing hair loss, these types of supplements aren’t going to be enough on their own to reverse thinning and encourage regrowth. You’ll almost always need to address the issue internally and topically.

Vitamins/supplements are important but they are not one-size-fits-all! I highly recommend working with a functional medicine doc to find the right mix of supplements for your body! To get a look at your scalp and hair follicles up close, schedule the “Analyze It” scalp analysis.💖

The #2 most common question about hair loss...

“Will it stop falling out if I wash it less often?” 🤔

The answer: Unfortunately, no.

What's causing the hair to shed is an internal problem not the friction from shampooing. We usually see the most loss when we wash because all the hair that has been released from the follicles comes out at once. 😱

In fact, scalp stimulation is important to keep blood flowing to the capillaries that feed the hair follicles.

What's the best way to stimulate the scalp? Dry brushing! Click the link in my bio for Oway products and check out the Circolo Brush for my favorite palm-sized dry brush. 💖

The 3rd most common myth I hear about hair loss...

“My mom/dad/aunt/grandpa/3rd cousin lost their hair. It’s genetic so there’s nothing I can do about it” 🤷🏻‍♀️

The answer: Not true at all! 🤯

There are a lot of ways to address hair loss, some more aggressive than others. From tropical treatments, medications, supplements, laser treatments, and more.

By combining holistic scalp treatments in the salon with the prescribed home care, my clients are seeing regrowth and the return of full scalp coverage! 🙌🏼

The most common questions about hair loss...#3

“Will coloring my hair make it fall out?” 🤔

Unless you have a specific allergy to the the chemicals being used, it's unlikely you'll experience an unusual amount of loss after a color service.

Though chemical sensitivity can cause a whole host of severe reactions in the body this type of reaction is rare. But if you see a dramatic increase in loss after a color or trying new products, it's possible an allergic reaction is the culprit. 😱

If you suspect you may be sensitive and reactive I recommend using professional hair color free of ammonia, PPD, and resorcinol. I also highly recommend eliminating products with sulfates, parabens, and fragrances.

Every time I ask a client how often they wash their hair during their consultation they get embarrassed when they admit they don’t wash their hair every day! 😳

PSA: Most of us do not need to wash our hair that often! Some of us can go days, even a week between washes! There's no shame in honoring your hair and body.

Let’s talk damage repair...🤔

If you color your hair you’ve probably experienced damage to a certain degree, at some point. But hair can be affected by other things as well. Too much exposure to hot tools, especially without heat protection! 😱 Even too much sun and UV exposure can damage hair.

Listen, If your hair feels dull and limp or stiff and brittle, it’s damaged! 😭

My favorite solution is a Rebuilding Treatment! What’s that? It’s a process of treating the hair with the specific nutrients and minerals it needs along with plant protein and infrared technology. It’s the best I’ve ever used! 💪🏼

It’s perfect before a major color change to prepare the hair or after chemical damage has already been done. I get at least a half a dozen clients a months who come to see me specifically for this and I’ve seen it work miracles. 🤩

Not convinced? This beautiful client came to me in tears and desperate for a color correction but her hair was in no shape for more color. After 6 treatments, she has a new head of hair and a gorgeous balayage! 🥰

Hey you! Feeling bored? 🙁

When was the last time you stepped out of your comfort zone? When did you last try something new for the heck of it?🤷🏻‍♀️

It’s easy to fall into a routine especially with your personal style. It can be difficult to envision a new look or color🤔

My favorite way to find inspiration is to troll Pinterest for looks that inspire me! Start by creating a board for looks you like and don’t overthink it. Have those pics ready to show at your next appointment and share what you love about them 😍

A good stylist will analyze what you like about each look and translate it to work for you 👩🏼‍🦰

I know it’s a little scary to step outside of the box, but there’s no better way to give yourself a boost than a gorgeous transformation 🤩

Sarah Bandy - Owner & Holistic Stylist

I’m an Austin native, human mom and dog mom, swing dancer, and nature lover. I began my career 16 years ago training under a master stylist in Portland, OR. I then spent three years working in film and television as a colorist before moving on to fashion shows and editorial work. I became a salon owner in 2013 and discovered my passion for helping my clients tap into the best version of themselves.

As a fine-haired lady myself I have honed my expertise in the care and styling of fine hair as well as thinning hair caused by age, hormonal changes, medical conditions, or genetics.

Due to my own chemical sensitivities, I strive to keep chemical content and artificial fragrances to a minimum. I offer ammonia and PPD free color, keratin treatments that are free of formaldehyde and carcinogens that require no wait time for washing or styling, and organic hair care and styling products fragranced with natural essential oils. It’s my goal to protect your health as much as mine while creating a luxurious experience and producing consistently outstanding results.
