Crazy Hair Trend: Velaterapia

Crazy Hair Trend: Velaterapia

There are no shortage of crazy trends as you may very well know- from fitness, to fashion, to nutrition, and now even hair! The latest hair care craze you may have heard about is called Velaterapia, the act of burning your hair with a candle in order to rid your strands of split-ends. At this point you are probably thinking, “But wait, aren’t we supposed avoid burning our hair?” And who could blame you, this fad seems pretty out there at first, but could it be that there is more to it? Velaterapia first caught mass attention when Victoria’s Secret model, Alessandra Ambrosio, posted an Instagram photo of herself getting the treatment done. To begin the process, the stylist  first separates your hair into sections. Next, each section is twisted, and finally a candle flame is gently grazed up and down across the twisted sections in order to burn off the split ends and leave your hair looking shiny. The process is said to seal the strands after burning off the split and damaged parts, leaving behind a passage of nutrients to its interior, and giving your hair a healthier appearance.It can be done on dyed or natural hair and is said to work well on all hair types. One Velaterapia treatment can take up to four hours, so if you are booking in appointment make sure you have ample time.  This sounds like a God-send, but is it safe and does it have possible long-term negative consequences for your strands? Where safety is concerned, my suggestion is to go to a professional. One YouTube search and you’ll have about twenty DIY Velaterapia videos which I highly discourage you from trying at home. Remember that one time when you cut your own bangs and lived to regret it? Imagine that feeling and multiply by 100 and you’ll start to somewhat understand how you will feel if you do an at-home Velaterapia treatment and it goes wrong. Ouch! As far as possible long-term consequences, there is a possibility that it might weaken your hair strands by making them more vulnerable. There just may be more effective way to deal with split ends (an old fashioned trim, for example). Would you ever try Velaterapia? Let me know if the comments below!

How to Rock Colorful Hair In the Workplace and Still Keep Your Job

How to Rock Colorful Hair In the Workplace and Still Keep Your Job

It’s no doubt that the rainbow hair color trend is becoming more and more mainstream on the streets, but what about at the office? As an individual, you’ll always feel better when your hair, clothes and makeup match how you perceive yourself. But can you really keep or get a job with pink hair, blue hair and green hair? Traditional companies have started to relax about giving their employees more freedom, but being allowed to have colorful hair in the workplace comes down to a matter of office culture, perception (both your own and that of your boss or team) and styling. Here are some tips from celebrity hair colorist, Renee Taglia that she shares with her clients at her Beverly Hills Salon, on how to rock colorful hair in the workplace! Make sure the style is as polished as possible.  If you already have pink hair, green hair or blue hair, it might be beneficial to match the racy hair color with a polished hairstyle.  Try straightening your hair into a sleek frame around your face or pulling it back clean (See tip number 3!) for a more balanced look that will most likely be less distracting to your coworkers and boss. Ensure your attire is over the top professional. If your outfit is well put together, this will also reflect your boss’ perception of your working habits.  It’s a great idea to pair a fun and edgy hair color with a sleek and stylish outfit. It’s all about balance, and this combination will most likely showcase what a confident person you are. Pull it back clean. If you’re on your way to your first interview, or even your first day on the job, it might be best to rock your hair pulled back into a clean bun or ponytail. As you begin to adjust to your new coworkers and your new work environment, you’ll more than likely be able to start experimenting with crazier hairstyles.  Hide the color with strategic partings. If your rainbow hair color is painted on in pieces or in sections, a good idea might be to part your hair so that the brightest colors aren’t showing as much. A cute zigzag part or side part could be the trick to making your bright hair color appear a bit more subtle while at work. Keep the makeup minimal. If your hair is already a bright color, minimal makeup will balance out your look and make it seem less challenging to the norm. Own it and don’t apologize for it. :-) This is the most important tip. You are you, and you are special! Don’t forget to rock what you’ve got and be proud of being your own...

Master hair colorist Renee Taglia has recognized three celebrity-inspired ways to add mint green hair into your look.  Dip Dye “I love Rita Ora’s take on the color. By keeping the base blonde, her mint green dye starts at the base of her ponytail and cascades into a soft blue.  This ombre hair color effect looks great with her blue shades!”   All Over Color “Kylie Jenner, Lena Dunham, Katie Perry and Lady Gaga have all rocked this mint green hair trend. Where pastels and pinks are pretty and soft, green is unapologetically bold. If you’re looking to make the ultimate hair statement with mint green, go big or go home!”      Just The Tips “Mint Green is generally a low-commitment shade, as it can tend to wash out after a few weeks. I love how Kate Bosworth incorporated the color with soft mint green tips. It’s the prefect combination of subtle yet statement-making.”   Where does Renee find her greens?  Recently Renee took a peregrination to Scottsdale, AZ where she was completely blown away at the abundance of green within the landscapes.
