Christopher Street Salon has been chosen to participate in launching Sojourn, a new product line designed to revolutionize hair care. The products have been featured in Vanity Fair, Allure, New Beauty and several other beauty magazines.
Lead by Elan Sasson, the product line has been designed to work with your hair’s chemistry. Having the proper pH levels is what makes this product line so effective. With pH levels of 4.5 to 5.5 you can be assured that the products are color safe. When pH levels are beyond 4.5 to 5.5, the cuticle can open, leaving your hair susceptible to color loss and damage.
The new line offers:
. Color protection
. Permanent conditioning to your hair
. UV protection
. No sulfates, formaldehydes, parabens, salt or artificial color or dye
. All the products are 100% alcohol free, 100% biodegradable and have a
net-zero environmental impact
By using Sojourn products, you can enjoy beautiful hair all year long.

Christopher Street sponsors an ongoing food drive to support the Long Island Cares, Inc. Harry Chapin Food Bank. We accept non-perishable food items, personal care products, household supplies, school supplies, pet food and baby care items. Thank you to our client’s for their continued support of this worthwhile program.
As we age, our hair color changes when we lack melanin, the pigment that gives our hair its color. Fortunately, we can improve this condition with the help of a professional colorist. To achieve great results, ask the following four key questions and remember to have your colorist use darker tones underneath, lighter ones on top and the brightest lights around your face to achieve your best look:
- What color would be most compatible with my skin tone and lifestyle?
- When is it time to use permanent, temporary color or a glaze for shine?
- What would add more body to my hair; a single process, highlights or both?
- What products can I use to maintain my color and retain body?
Once you achieve your best color, here’s what you should do to maintain it:
Tips to Maintain Your Color:
- Use the products that your colorist recommends; many ingredients in certain hair products can dry your hair and fade your color so it’s important to use the product that has been prescribed for you.
- To preserve your color as long as possible, do not shampoo your hair every day unless you have extremely oily hair. You can wet your hair using warm water (not hot) and work your fingers through it as if you were using shampoo; add conditioner, if necessary.
- If you have quick regrowth, have your colorist apply a single process color to your hairline or part in between visits. This is cost effective and will provide you with color consistency.
Looking your best takes work, but the end result is worth the investment.

Many clients over 40 enter a salon looking to improve their appearance and assume they should have short hair…”Not true!”, says Kathy Savage, owner of Christopher Street Salon in Commack. “One key factor when choosing a style is your facial shape. What looks good on someone else, may not look good on you”, says Kathy. Study the shapes below to find the most flattering hair style for you.
FACE SHAPE WHAT WORKS
Round Longer geometric cuts with angled layers. Avoid blunt styles
that hit above the chin.
Square Flattering cuts that soften the jaw line with face framing layers
is best; short crop or long styles will work with this shape. Avoid
short blunt cuts with bangs.
Oval ` This is the ideal shape and can look great with any style.
Heart Side swept bangs are very flattering; women with larger
features can also wear long hair. Always keep top layers
long, if you go short. Avoid blunt bobs or box shaped cuts.
Long Chin length cuts or bobs and bangs are best because they
add width. Avoid long or very short styles.

No nail care product alone can give you healthy nails. But following these simple guidelines can help you keep your nails looking their best:
- Don’t abuse your nails. To prevent nail damage, don’t use your fingernails as tools to pick, poke or pry things.
- Don’t bite your nails or pick at your cuticles. These habits can damage the nail bed. Even a minor cut alongside your nail can allow bacteria or fungi to enter and cause an infection.
- Keep your nails dry and clean. This prevents bacteria, fungi or other organisms from growing under the nail. Clean under the nails regularly and thoroughly dry your hands and feet after bathing. Wear rubber gloves when using soap and water for prolonged periods.
- Trim nails and file nails regularly. Trim nails straight across and file down thickened areas. Use a sharp manicure scissors or clippers and an emery board to smooth nail edges. Trimming and filing are easier and safer if done just after bathing or soaking the nails.
- Never pull off hangnails — doing so almost always results in ripping living tissue. Instead clip off hangnails, leaving a slight angle outward.
- Wear shoes that fit properly. Shoes that place excessive pressure on your toes or pinch your toes may cause your nails to grow into surrounding tissue.
- Moisturize your nails frequently. Nails need moisture just like your skin does. Rub lotion into your nails when moisturizing your hands. Be sure to apply a moisturizer after removing fingernail polish.
- Watch for problems. If you have a nail problem that doesn’t seem to go away on its own or is associated with other signs and symptoms, make an appointment with your doctor to get it checked out.
