Style Hair That Is Not CleanBelieve it or not, most hair stylists prefer styling hair that is dirty. The reason behind this madness is that hair that hasn’t been washed is easier to manage, thus giving you the best hairstyle. So the next time you’re going in to the salon or doing your own hair at home remember not to wash it that day
Curl Hair, Then RollDo you ever wonder how runway models get those flawless hair curls? It’s actually quite simple. Begin by applying a small amount of hair spray in your hair. Next, curl 2 inches of hair at a time with a medium-sized curling iron. Lastly, fix the already-made curls in velcro rollers. The last step really makes a difference, as it makes your curls beautiful and long-lasting
Sea Salt Makes Fabulous WavesThe majority of people have natural waves in their hair, but do not like the fizziness. Don’t let this get in your way of showing off those gorgeous waves. Simply sprinkle a bit of sea salt to your wet hair, scrunch it, and let it dry in the air. Sea salt will prevent your hair from becoming frizzy and make the waves stand out
Pair Bangs with Long HairBefore getting bangs, make sure you are getting the correct haircut. Side bangs and blunt bangs with long hair are currently in trend. Side bangs are a great choice if blunt bangs are too much for you. As long as they’re thick and are combined with long, layered hair, blunt bangs are also a good choice. Avoid getting bangs that are thin, and square-like; this is an outdated look and will make you look out of style as well
Go Long with StyleThe first thing that comes into your mind with the words “long hair” is probably sexy. Yes, long hair is sexy, but only when it’s kept in style. Don’t be afraid to get trendy haircuts while growing out your hair; otherwise, you’ll just have plain, long hair. You can get bangs, layers, dye your hair, and more
Shampoo and Blow Dry
Shampoo and Blow DryThe busy world we live in today hardly lets us take proper care of our hair. Split ends, dryness, chemical damage, etc. Are all a result of using the wrong hair products, improper technique, and not spending the necessary time on your hair. You may be thinking; “but how can i possibly find the time to take good care of my hair?” the best solution is to go to a hair salon. A professional stylist can guide you through choosing the hair products that best suit your needs. No matter what hair type you have, a good stylist knows which shampoo and conditioner will keep your hair healthy and radiant. If time is a problem, let your stylist know. He or she will also be able to find a product that works along with the blow dryer to give you a beautiful, yet easy to do hairstyle. So what about blow dryers and hair damage? Yes, blow dryers can cause a great deal of damage to your hair, but only if the correct technique is not used. Improper blow drying can remove the natural oils found in your hair and cause your scalp and hair follicles to become dry. This however, can be avoided by learning which blow dryer and shampoo to use.
Dyeing Your Hair at HomeYou can dye your hair at home; however, it is best if you don’t exceed 2 tones darker or lighter than your natural hair color. For those that want to go from a brown to a blonde hair color for example, should definitely consider going to a hair salon. If you’re willing to risk it though, selecting a semi-permanent dye is recommended
Don’T Be Fooled by the BoxWhen choosing a hair dye, it is important to carefully read the description on the box. Most products will describe the color as well as the shade; for example, light brown, dark black, etc. Going by the color in the box picture is not a good idea, as it often does not represent the true color
Selecting the Ideal Color ShadeHe basics behind choosing a hair color is determining whether you have a “warm” or “cool” undertone. Those with a “warm” undertone typically have green veins in the sunlight, whereas people with a “cool” undertone have blue veins
Making a DecisionPerms are not a good choice if your hair has been dyed, highlighted, or has gone through any other chemical-based procedures. The main reason is because additional chemicals are added to your hair during a perm; this can cause your hair to become damaged as well as frizzy. To be on the safe side, be sure to tell your hair stylist everything that has been done to your hair within the last few years
Preparing for the ProcedureOnce you’ve decided to get a perm you will have to prepare your hair for it. Use a good conditioner each time after you shampoo your hair. The conditioner will help keep your hair moisturized and help protect it from the chemicals used in the perming process. Stop using the conditioner at least 24 hours prior to getting the perm
The ProcedureSet your appointment at a hair salon in dunedin on a day you are free, as perms can take up to two hours to complete. Ultimately, how long the procedure takes depends on the length of your hair and its’ texture. Your stylist will start by applying a solution to your hair that will release its’ structure. You will also have a neutralizing solution applied to your hair later on. You will have to wait 28 hours to see the final result, as this is how long it takes for the hair to relax. Remember that perms only last 2 to 6 months and that you’ll have to maintain your hair. For the best result, look for examples of what you want your hair to look like. Pictures out of magazines or from the internet should do. They will give your stylist a better idea of what you want and provide you with a good outcome.
