This Month at Posh: In-Salon Education with Eli High!

At Posh, we take hair education seriously. That’s why you see pictures from local classes, hair shows, and in-salon training sessions frequently on our social media channels and our website.

We are so excited to let you take a peek into our most recent in-salon education experience. Instead of heading out to a massive class where you can only view an instructor from the sidelines, we brought in Eli High to teach our stylists one-on-one in our very own salon!

Eli High is the Mid-Atlantic Artistic Educator for Redken, covering the NC and SC areas. She has a wealth of experience and practice with hair, and we were so excited to learn from her. She taught our stylists on new curling techniques, blow-dry optimization, finishing, and product knowledge.

All in all, we had a wonderful time, and we were able to document it all for you to see! When it comes to trusting stylists that continue their education and keep up with the most cutting-edge hair techniques, there’s no place like Posh!


WEEKEND BEAUTY TIP: How to Recreate Elsa’s hair from Frozen with this quick tutorial!

It’s official: Frozen has become a nationwide kid phenomenon. All the children running through the salon have been singing “Let it Go” like it’s the first song they’ve ever heard in their life.

We all love Elsa and Anna and their grand reunion at the end of the movie. But let’s be honest, we love their hair more. How do they get those braids so perfect?!

Well, I can’t give you a personal graphic artist to program your hair to look perfect every morning. Unfortunately, only cartoons in cyberspace have hair like that. But I can do you one better: a tutorial that makes your hair look like Elsa’s in real life. And the best part? She doesn’t really have long hair in this video: she faked it! So medium-length ladies, this style is for you too!

So get ready, get set, and start creating perfect Elsa braid today ladies! Much love to Lilith Moon’s for giving us this easy how-to.

Posh celebrates FHI 360 as they move downtown!

Family Health International (FHI) is an incredible organization that is committed to improving the living standards of the world’s most vulnerable people. Everyone knows them as one of the leaders in the fight against HIV/AIDS and we’ve just come to find out they have programs operating in over 55 countries! Their motto is “the science of improving lives,” and we’re all excited to see their amazing work up close and personal as they move downtown.

This week, FHI held an open house in celebration of their decision to move their HQ to downtown Durham! Bull City was eager to have them, and lots of businesses participated in the event including Tobacco Road Restaurant, MagPie Boutique, West Village apartments, the new Church + Main condos, Urban Durham Realty, Cuban Revolution, Bank of NC, Southside, and more!

We were so honored to be invited to their wonderful event and to bring some hair goodies for those attending. We even put together a tote full of hair-friendly products for a lucky winner to enjoy, free of charge!  See the photos below of our part in this event, and scroll through the album at the bottom to see the full photo gallery.

Ladies and gents, let’s give a warm, Bull City welcome to FHI 360!

Oh, and as always Durham, stay posh.

We told you all about how wonderful Duke Lemur Center is, and we’ve been so excited about #lemurweek here in Bull City!

To kick off Lemur Week, the Lemur himself came to visit us last week! We were so thrilled to have him, and we can’t really tell you how wonderful he is. We will have to simply show you!

He posed for the camera and even sat in one of our salon chairs with a cape on, ready for his makeover. At the end of the fun, we took a picture of the Lemur with our Posh team before he moved on to the next business.

We hope this week has raised awareness about the state of lemurs in the world as the most endangered mammal group, and we hope it has inspired people to stay active in keeping these amazing creatures alive and happy!


WEEKEND BEAUTY TIP: The Twisted Pretzel Bun for the perfect Easter hairstyle!

Spring is in the air, and we couldn’t be happier about it in Bull City. The only way to make us even happier than we are now is when Easter plans start getting made–Easter egg hunts, traveling to see our friends or  family, and a table full of soul-comforting food!

This Easter, spice up your style with this double-twisted bun we found for you. It offers the perfect amount of volume and bounce in the bun, while remaining polished and presentable from the front (should you need to rock it at your grandma’s house or church).

Here’s a simple step-by-step guide and a perfect visual of the Twisted Pretzel Bun!

1. Lightly hairspray hair and tousle to bodify. Separate down the middle of the scalp and create two side-by-side pony tails using small hair ties that match your natural color.

2. Split each pony tail in two pieces and twist them together.

3. Gently pull apart twists to create more body.

4. Wrap the twisted hair piece on the right around counter-clockwise, placing bobby pins to keep in place.

5. Gather both pieces together and then continue wrapping around counter clockwise.

6, Wrap remaining hair piece behind the bun and through the open middle, to hide scalp.

7. Tuck hair ends under top of bun and secure with bobby pins underneath!


And there you have it! A perfect Easter style sure to help you feel fresh, fun, and in the holiday spirit! Take time to practice this style a couple times and by the time Easter hits, you’ll be able to throw it up in no time!

Merry Weekend Everybody!
