Going Blonde.........

Going Blonde isn't always an easy task especially if you have dark hair.  If you have dark hair you will pull gold which some like and some don't.  If you pull gold you do have to use ash but carefully and professionally.  You may even need to use bleach for the results you are looking for. 

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

Thinning bulky hair

Thinning bulky hair can certainly help and look better if you have extremely thick especially curly and thick hair.  Generally a razor or thinning shear is used.  Keep in mind when doing this style of cutting you are removing bulk but at the same time creating short pieces of hair that will grow a little longer and create more bulk.  So if you intend on using this technique you will have to keep up with it. Its a solution for very thick hair.

Friday, October 11, 2013

Different types of hair extension applications

There are different types of hair extension applications and from what I found with my research and knowledge the micro bead is the safest with less damage and the price is the same or better in price range if you check around.

Dry Hair Cutting

Dry hair cutting might be for you if you have your hair dried and straightened and do not wish you to have much cut off.  You can still shape the hair correctly when its dry, you can see the bad ends and have control of how much you are taking off and curly hair wont bounce up too short.  A dry hair cut can be just as good as a wet cut :)

Wednesday, October 9, 2013

Micro Bead Extensions Work......

Micro Bead Extensions not only work well on your hair they are the least likely to pull your hair out or break your hair.  If your hair is very damaged but healthy at the root area extensions can help with a better appearance.

Friday, October 4, 2013


keratin treatment is to help condition and eliminate frizz.  It is not intended to straighten hair and is temporary generally lasting up to 14-16 weeks.  Also keep in mind most often you still have to style your hair to get better results easier.

What to know when you have to cancel your appointment

When you need to cancel your hair appointment keep in mind a certain amount of time has been allowed for you and your service you are having done;  so be sure to try and cancel at least 24 hours in advance.  Most stylist are paid commission and if you do not show up without canceling they have lost money and did not have the chance to fill in the space they marked off for you and if you cancel at the last money the same result is the same.  Try and be courteous to your stylist if you do need to cancel.

Wednesday, September 18, 2013


Tipping is a very nice and appreciated gesture.  We as stylist and assistants appreciate it and it is part of our income.  When you are in a private salon not a chain we only get paid when we work so making money can be hard during slow times.  The stylist that truly cares about your hair and does do a good job is certainly tip worthy :)  Thank you if you are one of those clients, we appreciate you.  With that being said those of you that truly cant afford tipping we also appreciate you as our clients and do understand.

Deep Condition At Home

Deep Condition at home and save some money at the same time.  Ask your stylist what conditioner to buy that will deep condition under heat.  When you purchase that you can apply conditioner after you shampoo and put a plastic cap (shower cap type) and sit under a hair dryer for 15 minutes.  You can purchase bonnet hair dryers for a very good price, in fact the price you would pay for a dryer would be the price you would pay for one deep conditioning treatment in a salon.

Choosing Hair Color

Choosing Hair Color does not mean what you choose you can do or wear.  Be sure and check with you stylist.  Very dark hair can be challenging to go lighter without getting reds and golds depending on what you are looking for.  Some hair is simply not in good shape to color or high light.  If you have any doubts do not do it at home, its important to have a consult in a hair salon where your hair can be looked at and tested for damage!

Rollers part 4

Rollers not only are different sizes to achieve different looks, but also the way you place them on hour head will give you different looks.  Place on the base holding the hair straight up will give you maximum volume.

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

Using styling aides with your rollers

Using styling aides with your rollers is also a good idea to help smooth and tame curly hair and to help straight hair achieve some bounce and curl.

Monday, July 22, 2013

Rollers part 3

Rollers are a great way to achieve smooth straighter fluffy and curly hair. The curl is determined by the size roller you use. If you want curly hair you use a smaller roller and bigger for straighter hair. If you use small sections for each roller, an inch size would be an average to judge, will give you the optimal result you are looking for whether straight or curly.

Sunday, July 21, 2013

roller part 2

Roller part 2 is still talking about rollers with curly hair.  Big rollers to keep the hair straight is great, if you feel you are too puffy when you take the rollers out you can run your flat iron through it and from that you can judge just how much you need to to do that until it is how you like it.  You can also pull your hair back in scrunchies to flatten it our even wrap a scarf around your head like its cold outside for a few minutes to help flatten it.  If its humid outside don't forget to use your A/C!

Tuesday, July 16, 2013


Rollers will help give you curl, straighten, body and wave to your hair!  Depending on the size roller, the length of your hair and how big the sections you take;  if your hair is curly you want a big roller but be sure there is enough hair to go around the roller, that will make your hair straight but still have body in your hair. Come back and check for  -- Roller Part 2

Sunday, July 14, 2013

Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions can be a solution if your hair has thinned or very fine lacking fullness.  It doesn't have to be about length, it can be about fullness.

Friday, July 12, 2013

Add some body and or wave to your hair

Add some body or waves to your hair with a texture perm.  The word perm scares some people but using a perm without ammonia and using sponges or big perm rods and done correctly, you can have a great beachy wave perm and love it!

Thursday, July 11, 2013


Chlorine is very drying and damaging to your hair.  Be sure to wash it out of your hair. Some salons offer professional clarifying treatments to remove mineral build up and can follow up with a good conditioning treatment.  You may want to consider that once or twice a month during the summer months especially if you are an active swimmer!  Enjoy your summer :)

Sunday, July 7, 2013

If your hair is really dry.

If your hair is really dry, like straw dry, you need to be sure to condition your hair and it would help internally to eat healthy fats and take" hair skin and nail" vitamins.  You can use argan oil when your hair is wet and dry.  You can use any oils that is moisturizing there are several on the market.  If money is a problem you can purchase VO5 in a tube, that will help as well and is cheap.  When you hair is softer it is much easier to manage.

Saturday, June 22, 2013

Looking for you stylist?

Looking for your stylist?  Sometimes when your stylist disappears and they are no longer at the salon and the salon does not give you any information how or where to find them is no fault of the hair stylist. There are salons that will not allow them to keep record of their clients.  So if you find a stylist you really like be sure to give them on your phone number or get theirs in case they should have to leave the salon they are working.

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Check the length before you buy

Check the length before you buy your hair extensions or pony tail extensions etc.  You can measure from the back middle of you head on down so you know how long you want your extensions/pieces to go.  They have different lengths to order depending on what you are ordering.

Monday, June 17, 2013

Cover your hair in the sun

Cover your hair in the sun especially if you have colored treated hair.  The sun is pretty strong and will fade your color.  Some color when it starts to fade will turn on the red side.  If that happens you may have to go in the salon for a quick color wash which will help tone it down until your next appointment.  If you have natural hair the sun can bring natural high lights to your hair which you may like, if so keep your hair uncovered!  If you have thinning hair or balding it is definitely wise to cover your head to avoid too much sun exposure and sunburn.

Sunday, June 16, 2013

Pricing hair extensions

Pricing hair extensions is important.  Some hair salons charge for ordering the hair for you and may charge extra for the hair.  When you are pricing be sure to find out what the price quoted includes.  Most of the time you need to cut before and after applying the extensions, be sure to ask if there is an extra charge for that.

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Cut/Trim your hair before you apply extensions

Cut/Trim your hair before you apply your hair extensions so your ends do not split more while you extensions are in your hair.  You want your natural hair to grow and stay healthy.

Conditioning your hair at home can be a quick conditioning in the shower after shampooing and also it is recommended monthly to deep condition your hair.  Depending on the condition of your hair will determine how often you should deep condition.  Deep conditioning means adding protein and moisture (hydrating) to your hair after shampooing and using a cap with heat or going under the dryer for 15 minutes.

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Prebonded hair for micro bead hair extensions

When purchasing hair for micro bead extensions you want to get prebonded hair. It does matter where you purchase, I found doing them with other product lines in comparison to where I purchase my hair for the salon makes a huge difference.  The quality, how it is made and bonded is very important.

Monday, May 13, 2013

Hair Brushes

Hair Brushes come in different sizes, shapes, and different bristles.  You have one that needs to go through your hair right to your scalp so you know all of your hair is getting brushed, generally called a paddle brush.  So often children get horrible mats in their hair because the hair brush does not go through to the scalp.  You also want to make sure if there are ball tips on the bristles that those are not all broken off so there is no hair pulling which can make knots and end up in breakage.

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Hair service specials are offered in many salons for new clients or for an existing client but a new service you never tried.  Don't be afraid to ask your stylist or receptionist.

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

why are some prices more in some salons than others?

The prices vary from salon to salon for many reasons.  Some reasons are the over head is higher, some areas are more expensive and the bills are much higher. Some salons carry more hair product than other so there is a lot of money sitting on the shelves; also education costs, extra classes and experience has a price tag on it. You are not paying for someone out of school you are also paying for experience.  You may want to consider that when looking for a new salon/hair stylist.

Monday, May 6, 2013

Looking for hair styles

Looking for hair styles is important especially if you know your hair type and looking at pictures you can tell if your hair will work or not.  But you can find pictures in style books at your local grocery store and drug stores, book stores etc.  Plus if you google short or long styles you can get a great variety.

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

trim your ends to grow faster..........

Trim your hair so it grows faster is what you hear all the time and cant figure how your hair grows faster at the roots if you trim you ends.  Well your hair is growing at the same rate but if you ends are split and need to be cut and you don't cut them the ends split up higher and the ends get thinner.  When you clip your roses another bud comes quickly and you get more.  Same with your hair, if you keep your ends cut and healthy your hair continues to grow without any breakage and split ends.

Saturday, April 27, 2013

Hair Color Fading

Hair color fading happens a lot in the summer time.  Hair Color shampoos, hats to cover your hair and keeping your hair in good condition will help color from fading.  Most of the time professional hair color you get from your hair stylist will last longer, especially if it is formulated specifically for you.

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Your scalp breaking out....

Your scalp breaking out pretty much means there are too many oils left on your scalp, products laying on your scalp which should be on your hair instead, or simply allergic to certain ingredients that just don't agree with you.  Be sure you put product only on your hair and wash thoroughly.  If it continues change hair products.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Layering Your Hair

Layering your hair will help bring bounce and body.  It can also help encourage wave or curl if you have that naturally in your hair.  Some don't even know they have that naturally until they do layer.  Always have longer layering unless you are looking for a short style.

Eyebrow waxing or threading

Eyebrow waxing or threading will help open your eyes more if you have heavy eyebrows.  Be careful you don't go too thin, you want too keep the shape you have but clean it up enough to brighten and open your eyes.  Your make up looks better and if you are wearing bangs you can eliminate a heavy look on your forehead.

Too much gold in your hair

Too much gold in your hair when you color your hair means you have to use some ash to help cut the gold or you are trying to lift your natural color too light.

Hair Satic

Hair Static is generally in the winter months or where the climate is very dry.  Also if you over dry your hair you will get static.  If you use a light hair spray on your comb or hair brush and than brush your hair you will control that.  If you do not brush your hair you can spray your hair not too close as a fine mist and work it with your figures.

Get your hair ready for summer

Get your hair ready for summer, condition condition condition!  The summer sun is hard on hair along with the beach and chlorine.  If you color your hair and your hair is not conditioned well the sun will encourage fading quickly.  Good condition, good hair color and cover your hair if you can when you are out in the sun for a long period of time.

Cutting Long Hair Techniques

Cutting Long Hair Techniques are different for different hair types.  If you have long straight or Curly hair you can blunt cut for a full thick edge, you can slightly layer the bottom to break up the full line and create softness to the edge.  You can point cut (texturize) the bottom for a light uneven edge.  If you have curly hair the point cutting helps encourage the curl and it lays better with a nice flow to the curl.

Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions can be purchased online if you have all the information you need to purchase them;  type, length and color. 
Some salons will purchase your hair and double the price, some salons will help you get it with out raising the price. 
In my salon I give both options, I can purchase it for you or tell you where you can get it.  This helps in keeping the price a little lower which is always helpful since its a costly service to do.

Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions can be quite costly so do your research.  I do the Micro Bead in my salon, I find that when I am taking them out only the extension comes out with no damage to the hair.  However, there are different types of pre-bonded extensions that do make a difference   Some tips of the hair wefts are very gluey and sticky, some are a little thick for the beads you use and becomes difficult to get in the bead and the plastic silicone coating in the center of the bead gets pushed out.  Before purchasing your hair research it out, all different salons and check prices.  Find out what type of hair they use and look it up online.  The beauty schools generally will use good hair but can charge more than some salons.  When you do get them done it looks great!

Loose Waves and Body

Loose Waves and Body bring life and bounce to your hair and your personality!  Looking for a change in your appearance a little spring in your attitude, get a texture perm.  A texture perm will give, just body, or some wave, a beachy wave look.  Hair from the bottom of your neck to half way down your back it works great.  I just did a texture perm by Scruples in my salon on somseone with fine thin hair and because the perm is so gentle, it works great for her and looks great!
