Essentials in Hair, Beauty & Fashion

At Trixies Salon & Spa, we want to ensure your hair color stays fresh and vibrant between visits to the salon. That’s because we know how frustrating it can be when the color fades too quickly.

So, here are some of our favorite tips to help you extend the life of your hair color and ensure it lasts as long as possible.

Use Color-Safe Shampoos and Conditioners

One of the simplest yet most effective ways to maintain your hair color is by using color-safe shampoos and conditioners. Regular shampoos can strip away the color molecules from your hair, causing it to fade faster. Opt for shampoos and conditioners specifically formulated for color-treated hair. These products will help keep your hair hydrated and prevent color loss.

Limit Washing and Use Lukewarm Water

Frequent washing can cause your hair color to fade more quickly. Try to wash your hair less often and, when you do, use lukewarm water instead of hot water. Hot water strips away the natural oils from your hair, making it more prone to color fading.

Protect Your Hair from the Sun

Exposure to the sun's harmful UV rays can damage your hair color, causing it to fade and become dull. Protect your hair by wearing a hat or using a hair protectant spray that contains UV filters. These products act as a shield against the sun's rays, preserving the integrity of your hair color.

Avoid Heat Styling Tools

Excessive heat from styling tools can cause your hair color to fade faster. Minimize the use of heat styling tools such as straighteners, curling irons, and blow dryers. When using these tools, always apply a heat protectant spray to minimize damage. Embrace air-drying and try heat-free hairstyles to maintain your hair color for longer.

Use Color-Enhancing Products

To refresh your hair color between salon visits, consider using color-enhancing products. These products deposit a small amount of color pigment onto your hair, reviving its vibrancy. Color-enhancing shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks are available in various shades to suit different hair colors. Use them weekly or as needed to give your hair a quick color boost.

By following these tips, you'll be able to maintain your hair color longer, saving time and money on frequent salon visits. Remember, your hair color is an investment, and with proper care, it can stay vibrant and beautiful.

We have exciting news to share!

Our team at Trixie’s Salon and Spa is the first salon in Iowa to become certified in DreamCatchers Hair Extensions.

What does this mean for you?

Well, great things, actually! That’s because this line of hair extensions is the absolute best of the best, and we’re proud to bring it to central Iowa!

If you’re looking to get some hair extensions, here are a few reasons to make an appointment with us so we can give you the hair of your dreams.

Top of the line hair extensions

DreamCatchers hair is a unique blend of Remy hair, which means that the cuticles are intact and the hair runs from root to point. These hair extensions are made from 100% selected human hair, too, creating a natural look as if it was all your own hair. The quality is unmatched by any other extensions brand on the market, and in most cases, is often better than a client’s own hair.

High quality cuticles

The best indicator of hair quality is the intactness of the hair cuticles. Part of what makes DreamCatchers extensions stand out is that they’re full cuticle hair, which means there’s less of a chance for matting, is healthy and will integrate seamlessly with the client`s natural hair.

Options galore

DreamCatchers extensions are available in 56 colors — from black to blonde and everything in between.

Because the extensions also come in fun colors like blue and pink, it’s a great way for you — or your kids! — to have fun and try something new without all the pressure of a permanent color.

Cost efficient

DreamCatchers extensions are available as tape-ins, i-tips, k-tips or wefts.

What makes a k-tip an especially good option is that it’s an individual extension that is applied using a heating tool. K-tips are ideal for fine to medium-haired clients and are extremely versatile with maximum movement. K-tips can be re-tipped and reused, meaning they’re a cost-effective option.

At Trixies Salon & Spa, our goal is for every client to leave feeling rejuvenated and revitalized.

And here, you’re not just a customer — you’re family.

We mean it!

When you walk in our doors, you’re met by a team that’s super fun and caring and who take the time to get to know you.

Our owner, Tricia, is a community advocate, which speaks to her big heart and why clients feel like family. In fact, she recently received the 2023 Iowa Small Business Administration Women in Business Champion of the Year Award in recognition of her deep passion for small businesses and championing others.

Tricia also carves out time every Monday to call some of our guests to check in and see how their services were with us.

“I love this time because I get to connect with our guests and get some amazing feedback on what we’re doing really well at and our area of opportunities,” she says.

In the past, these phone calls have led to feedback that reminds our team why we do what we do.

Clients have said we’re:


*laid back

*full of laughter

*feel like old friends




*worth every penny

Our team at Trixie’s Spa & Salon avoids the flashy high tech atmosphere of other salons because we care more about creating a warm and inviting environment for our clients. We believe in meaningful conversations, affordable prices and attention to every detail, both big and small.

The Trixie’s Difference creates an environment where customers feel valued and appreciated, and that's why our clients keep coming back for more. You can come for the services, but you'll stay for the experience.

We invite you to come and experience the Trixie’s Difference for yourself. Join our family and discover why we're the go-to salon for people who want to look and feel their best.
