Choosing the Correct Round Brush

A round brush is primarily used for styling and can be very effective. With so many choices on the market, it can be difficult to choose the correct one for your hair. With a round brush, you can straighten while maintaining body, create soft waves, and maximize volume.

Wait 48 Hours Before Washing Colored Hair

No matter what color service you’ve had performed, we recommend waiting 48 hours before washing your hair.

If you have had a service done with bleach, your hair is very fragile due to the high pH level of your hair during the bleach application (making it weak). Waiting 48 hours gives your hair time to return naturally to its original pH and allows any conditioning treatments done in the salon time to heal and repair your hair as well. With bleached hair we always recommend leave-in conditioning sprays to strengthen hair and color safe shampoos and conditioners to keep your hair healthy and color beautiful. Your stylist should be recommending additional products if your hair is in need of repair or moisture.

Hot Tips for Redheads

If your hair is naturally red it is gorgeous. But sometimes we want to enhance or add to the reds in our hair so we might decide to add highlights. In some cases they seem to disappear literally from our hair over the course of a few weeks to months leaving us back where we started. This is not your stylist’s fault. The phaeomelanin (yellow/orange pigment) in your hair is shattered when you decolorize with bleach. Because of the amount of phaeomelanin in some redheads, these pigments actually come back together and the hair turns dark again.  Lucky you; no retouches and your hair always looks great.

How to Blow Dry Your Hair

Stylist’s often get asked the best way to get a salon worthy blow out at home. While we admit it isn’t easy to do yourself, it is possible. We suggest investing in the right tools like a good blow dryer with a nozzle attachment, one that is ionic (it makes a real difference) and one that is at least 1875 watts as this will give you enough power to get the job done in a timelier manner. Round brushes with compact bristles for tension and of course good styling products are musts. Ask your stylist for recommendations that are right for your hair.

Here is a video to help give you a visual and get you started:

It may take some practice but soon you’ll be able to get salon worthy hairstyles all on your own.

Winter Tips for Dry Skin and Hair – Part 2

We have tips on how to keep your skin and hair healthy during the cold months!

Tips 1-3 are in the earlier blog “Winter Tips for Dry Skin and Hair – Part 1.

4. Change skin care routine.

  • Your skin becomes drier in cold weather, especially if it is windy. When it’s windy the moisture on the skin evaporates more quickly and skin doesn’t produce much oil.
  • Try adding a heavy moisturizer and use it every morning and night. Again be careful of lotions that contain mineral oil as this acts as a barrier on the skin but not a moisturizer.
  • Try an exfoliate to help remove all those dry skin cells and make your skin nice and smooth.
  • Don’t forget about the rest your body. Although your body doesn’t need as much attention as your face does it’s always good to apply some body butter.

Winter Tips for Dry Skin and Hair – Part 1

What causes dry hair and skin during fall and winter?

During the winter two things can cause your hair and skin to become dry:

  • Freezing temperatures and low humidity
  • The heater in your house puts out dry air and dry air is what leaves your skin dry, flaky, and itchy.

To help with the dry air you can get a humidifier and help put moisture back in the air or boil a big pot of water.
