tālem Salon and Wellness Collective: Mindful and Intentional Beauty and Health

By  0 Comments

Most of us see health and wellness as directly linked to what we eat and drink. We turn to herbs, supplements and various other avenues to fuel and heal our inner bodies. tālem Salon saw the need to also address the outer body as well. When something is off inside our bodies it will generally show through our skin, nails, hair and scalp. Taking care of ourselves inside and out is an important philosophy at tālem. Taking care of ourselves includes what we put in and on our bodies. At tālem we use plant-based products, from hair color to styling. 

We also believe that taking care of yourself goes beyond the products you use and consume. Emotions can play a big role in your health. When we hold onto negative energy and let it grow, we become stressed and worn down. We introduced Reiki into our salon a few years ago knowing that it plays a vital role in maintaining beauty. Reiki is an effective energy-balancing practice to assist in moving negative energy out of our bodies.

tālem doesn’t stop there when it comes to being mindful and intentional in our beauty. We are a sustainable salon that focuses on reducing our waste and improving air quality. Harsh chemicals and ingredients in styling products can take their toll on your health. Beauty does not need to come at such a high cost to our health and the planet’s. We strive to be ever mindful of our guests and stylists’ health and wellness.

It started in 2005, when Brianne Bustamante founded Blush Co., an onsite hair and makeup concept for brides in the KC area. Blush Co. thrived beyond her imagination and was named The Best of Weddings for The Knot in 2010 and 2011. Blush was also chosen to work with David Tutera on My Fair Wedding for the Make a Wish Bride episode in 2011. During that time, Brianne was certified with Novalash as an eyelash extensionist and earned her Surface haircare educator certification. Blush Co expanded its scope to a full-scale hair and lash salon and it became important to Brianne that the hair color and products used at the salon were plant-derived and aligned with the personal health of guests as well as the environment. In 2017 Blush Co. rebranded to more accurately reflect the healthy, sustainable, empowered beauty philosophy of the salon, and tālem was born.
