We want to thank you for 20 amazing years of growing with us!
Check out our 20th Chéversary Specials below!
In Roman times, March was the month of new beginnings. The start of the calendar, it ushered in the vernal equinox, signaling a rebirth of all living things. And like the things of the Earth that are waking up to be bright and green once again, we are moving toward our own renewal as a city and as neighbors.
The rhythms and routines of the world that have slumbered during the pandemic will soon reawaken. Gradually, a wave will become a handshake. A handshake will become a hug. At Chémel Salon and Spa, we know you want to be ready to reengage with those you love most, presenting your best self to the world.
Rather than waiting for some distant day, Chémel has spent the time during quarantine preparing for a new season of you. We have been exploring what enlivens and energizes us. We have realigned with the values that have always made us your first choice in hair and skin care. In reconnecting with our own mission, we have renewed our commitment to yours. Let us inspire you.
As always, we are obsessed with bringing you effective, environmentally sustainable products that enrich your hair and nourish your integrity. If it were merely an elegant bottle and an upscale product, it would never have been good enough for you. To usher in your renewal and deliver on our promise to inspire, Chémel is so proud to introduce you to the sustainable, natural indulgence of R + Co’s, Bleu.
What is R + Co Bleu? Bleu is where performance meets renewable style in a best-in-class line of shampoos, conditioners, hair treatments, and styling products. Non-toxic, vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free, it is for discerning clients who want to incorporate respect for the planet into their daily beauty regimen without sacrificing luxury.
Bleu is a couture-inspired line of natural products that pamper and treat your hair, made from only those ingredients of which, the ultimate designer, nature, would approve. It is the glide of fine silk under the hand. It is the hand-sewn stitch of a storied fashion house. It is the precision of an heirloom timepiece. Bleu is to hair care what the soaring notes of an aria are to opera. Simply perfection.
Can shampoo be elegant and environmentally conscious? Absolutely. Sustainability and fine design meet in Bleu’s elegant, cutting edge packaging made of post-recyclable plastic and 100% biodegradable sugarcane. The bottle and tubes will take pride of place on your vanity, comfortable among your high-end cosmetics and lotions with an inspired look reminiscent of an exclusive French parfumier. The sensuous and evocative scents of citrus, cardamom, and lavender will only confirm that thought. Environmental responsibility has never looked or smelled this good.
Bleu is a clean, performance-based family of products that address the needs of every type of hair, making it sumptuous and touchable. Each product family is uniquely formulated to improve universal hair types, color-treated hair, those whose goal is to thicken and add volume, and to repair damaged hair from the inner cortex to outside surface of the hair shaft. The unique Blue Molecule process builds strength through micro-encapsulated sugar molecules that treat and restore the surface of your hair down to the root.
At your next appointment, tell your Chémel stylist to make it Bleu. Then lean back to revel in the rich, silky lather and relax into the knowledge that something as simple as a shampoo can elevate and transform. We promise that you will feel as if we have washed the last year of stress and uncertainty right out of your hair, leaving you lighter, healthier, and enlightened that high-end hair products really can deliver on their promises.
Your stylist will also use exclusively formulated styling products as part of Bleu’s continuum of conscious glamour with sprays, crémes, serums, oils, pomades, and mousse that will shape and hold that luxuriant hair in your swanky, signature style. Like the shampoos and conditioners of the line, the ingredients and packaging represent the high-performance, high-style, low-impact values that are the hallmark of the line.
Let us prove to you that your hair deserves the same caliber of luxury brand you use on your skin or wear next to your body. We know you will want to take home your own gorgeous bottle so that you can rinse and repeat the experience of Bleu at home before taking those beautiful, thoughtful results out into the world to meet it with a fresh new you.
We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to
