Brazilian Blowout FAQ'S

Q. Who is the best candidate for the Brazilian Blowout?
A. It has been our experience, that good candidates for the Brazilian Blowout are anyone who has frizzy, damaged or processed hair. We have performed the treatment on every hair type (fine/course/frizzy/curly), as well as hair that has been permed, Japanese straightened and extensions. In doing so, we have found that with proper communication and a well considered application, everyone can benefit from the Brazilian Blowout smoothing treatment.

Tijeras Company hopes QVC spot boosts sales, investment

BUSWEEKThey were sandwiched between ham, potato chips and a rake that allows users to pick up leaves without bending over.

June 2007

A recent slot on QVC, the famous home shopping network, was all part of the plan for Jacqueline and Elizabeth Asher. Their organic hair care and body care lines were featured in early March, and they certainly plan for more.

Currently, Tijeras Organic Alchemy products are sold around the country: in New York, Oklahoma, Colorado, Arizona, California, and of course, New Mexico. Profits on the company were up 19 percent in 2006 over 2005, and the two expect profits to be up 20 percent for 2007 over last year

New Mexico Journey - November/December 2008 Issue

the Magazine for AAA Members

Owned by mother-daughter duo Jacqueline and Elizabeth Asher, Tijeras Organic Alchemy began in 1975 as Tijeras Hair Company, a small salon that Jacqueline (left) opened in Albuquerque.

In those early days, Jacqueline says, she had a client whose hair was so severely damaged that he wouldn't wash it for fear that it would fall out. Helping him moved Jacqueline to develop her own hair-care line. In her salon, she saw the damage that the arid Southwest could wreak on hair, so she formulated her shampoos and conditioners to work in the dry, sun-drenched climate. (Think UV protection.)

New Mexico Business Weekly - by Stephanie Hainsfurther NMBW Contributor

Kip Malone | NMBW Organic idea: Looking to expand its product line, this salon came up with a savvy business plan to establish its presence in the retail sector.

Don't let the glitz of this ritzy salon fool you. It has a down-and-dirty business plan that has swept its products into large natural health food retailers in nine states.

Tijeras Salon Goes Hollywood

Tijeras Naturals StorefrontWe were lucky enough to have our "Tijeras Naturals" name and products featured on a movie set! The film (due for release at an unannounced time) is Odd Thomas, an adaptation of the novel by Dean Koontz and staring Anton Yelchin and Willem Dafoe. The film was shot all over New Mexico, and included a mall scene, in which an entire store was built with the Tijeras name. The picture below shows our "swanky" salon as it will appear in the film. We were very pleased and grateful for the opportunity and hope our products make it up on the big screen!

This Month at the Salon...

  • Pay with cash or write a check instead of using credit or debit cards because 3% or more goes back to the banking institution.

The Salon in the News - Albuquerque the Magazine

jacque and lizAfter 30 years of working in a salon, Jacqueline Asher and daughter, Elizabeth, began to see a demand for certified organic shampoos and conditioners.

"I call it the 'hazmat of the bathroom' when I see all the products and chemicals people use on their bodies," Elizabeth says.

"As owners of a hair salon, our lives revolve around chemicals and we have a higher sensitivity to those chemicals. Creating and using our line, Tijeras Naturals, gives our staff and our clients one less thing to worry about when it comes to pollution and to their health."
