Top Three Hairstyle Trends

Top Three Hairstyle Trends

Nothing brings out a gorgeous hair color like the perfect hair style. The day’s of long waves being the only hair style trend are long gone and in its place are a plethora of hairstyles that range from fun and funky to sexy and sophisticated. Below are a few of my absolute favorites: The Lob: It’s funny when you think about it- what was once written off as the dreaded “in-between” phase is now a full on hair trend. I am loving this look on the likes of Kendall Jenner and Rose Byrne, just to name a few. You can play with your lob cut by switching up the part as both middle part and side part look fantastic. The lob is the biggest trend right now because it allows you to have malleability with your hair and play with the texture by wearing it in lose waves, curls, or stick straight. Braid-waves: For everyone who dreams of those beachy waves no matter what time of year, this look is for you. I am finding that the overall trend’s in hair are veering off of the use of hot tools and leaning toward more natural methods and top-notch products. Case-in point is this hair trend which enables you to ditch the curling iron and achieve those perfect waves all in a nights sleep. Simply braid freshly washed and dried hair prior to going to bed and gently brush out when you wake up in the morning. The final look will resemble something close to this. The Wob: A.K.A. the wavy bob, popularized by none other than Jennifer Lawrence! I love the wob because it is such a deviation away from the stick-straight bob styles we are so used to seeing. This variation is a more lived-in, texturized take on short hair (and the current trends are all about texture). Rocking the wob also gives you an automatic edge and overall cool-girl vibe.

I Tried the Vampire Facial

I Tried the Vampire Facial

Those who know me know that I am an absolute nut about skincare. I am extremely particular about what I put in my body because I believe it effects my skin and about skincare. One thing I never skimp on is my monthly facial and I love trying different kinds that come highly recommended. This weekend, I had the opportunity to try the highly acclaimed Vampire Facial and I am absolutely thrilled with the results. Most of you have heard of the Vampire Facial thanks to Kim Kardashian’s mysterious Instagram post. Yes, it got a lot of criticism, but upon reading about how it is done and its benefits, I just had to try it. The Vampire Facial utilizes a tool call a Dermapen containing several  acupuncture-sized needles that get injected into your face. The Vampire Facial uses platelet-rich plasma taken from the patient’s own blood. The platelets stimulate (more like speeds up times ten) collagen and elastin growth. The procedure began with the basics- cleansing, exfoliation, and toning- before beginning the procedure. Don’t let the misleading name fool you, it was virtually painless. It felt like my skin was being completely rejuvenated and renewed and now that it’s been a few days, I know that it has been. My skin has never looked so silky smooth and gorgeous. I haven’t worn a stitch of makeup for the last few days because it makes me sad to cover it up; that, and there is honestly no need to. I was at a friends birthday party over the weekend and was approached by a woman I had never met who told me that my skin looked flawless. She was curious to know which foundation I used and was beyond surprised when I told her that the only makeup I had on my face was  just a dab of translucent powder. I am so excited to see how my skin looks as the days go on because the results are still settling in and I will be sure to post an update then. Have you ever tried the Vampire Facial?

How to Maintain Your Hair While You Sleep

How to Maintain Your Hair While You Sleep

Happy November! I honestly cannot believe how quickly this year has flown by; with the blink of an eye, the holiday season is already upon us. It seems that time has, in actuality, started to speed up which got me thinking how valuable time is and this naturally lead me to how taking too long to style your hair is a nuisance (everything leads back to hair for me- what can I say? I love what I do). Among one of my pet peeves is when you style your hair for the next day right before you go to sleep hoping that it will save you time in the morning. As you may know all too well, this tactic hardly goes as planned. In the interest of saving time (pun intended), I have put together a list that may help you preserve your hard styling work in your slumber — or at least make it easier to style the next morning: Don’t sleep with wet hair: Sleeping with wet hair makes your hair prone to frizz and breakage which makes styling a nightmare. By sleeping with your hair wet you are, without a doubt, adding additional style time to your morning. Elastic bands are a no-no: The elastic will put a dent in your freshly blowdried hair which, even when flat-ironed, often does not regain the original form intended. It may also have the affect of adding volume to the bottom of the hair and flattening the top (basically the opposite of what you want). Use a soft scrunchie in place of the elastic bands for more favorable results. Use a silk or satin pillowcase: These materials are far gentler on your hair and will help prevent breakage unlike traditional pillows which exacerbate breakage. As an alternative you can also wrap your hair in a silk or satin scarf before you go to sleep. Brush your hair before you sleep: Marcia Brady was on to something- brushing your hair after a long day and lots of product will make help maintain hair health, diminish breakage, and keep your hair from being an absolute styling nightmare in the morning.

Tips for Hair Growth

Tips for Hair Growth

Who doesn’t want long, luxurious hair? The question I get asked most often by my clients is how they can grow their hair faster. This is tricky because, while it does have to do with your hair grooming methods, what matters most is lifestyle choices and habits. Below are my top three tips for fast hair growth. Eat healthy: A diet filled with Omega-3 fatty acids is essential for aiding the growth of your hair as well as your overall health. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish your hair follicles for stronger and shinier hair. The proper amount of Omega-3 fatty acids will get rid of flaky hair, provide moisture for dry hair, and is even beneficial in preventing hair loss. Omega-3 fatty acids are found in salmon, nuts, chia seeds, and flax seeds. Quit smoking: If there was ever a vice that destroyed the hair smoking is most definitely it! If you talk to anyone who has ever quit smoking they will tell you that among the benefits they received, healthier hair was one of the most noticeable. Smoking constricts your blood vessels, restricting oxygen flow into your scalp, your hair ends up seriously in need of the nutrition that it’s not getting; the result of this is dry, brittle hair. There are also studies showing that smoking is connected to premature graying and hair loss. Take Viviscal: I swear by this product and have taken it myself as well as recommended it to many of my clients. Viviscal is a vitamin supplement that provides the hair with nourishment from within to help it grow. It does this by providing your hair with the nutrients it needs to prolong the anagen (hair growth) phase of your hair growth cycle. If you have been looking to take supplement definitely give Viviscal a try. Have a specific question about how to promote hair growth?

Inphenom: The Best Hair Product Line You’ve Never Heard Of

Inphenom: The Best Hair Product Line You’ve Never Heard Of

As a Master Hair Colorist, I have the pleasure of having access to many different product lines and hair products. While I love some of the products from the hair product lines that are pretty much household names, I am also lucky enough to know that some of the best products hail from lines that you’ve probably never heard of. It’s hard to pick between these under-the-radar lines, but my absolute favorite is called Inphenom. Perhaps there is no product line in the world that I love as much as Inphenom and if you are my client you’ve definitely heard me singing its praises. This is a Japanese brand that offers the highest quality hair-care. All the products are incredibly lightweight and leave you with sleek, shiny, easy-to-manage results. I honestly believe that Inphenom speaks for itself, you have to try it, sit back and let it work its magic, and I guarantee that you will be amazed. Every single product in this line is amazing, but if I absolutely had to a pick a favorite it would have to be the Inphenom Spray Mist. This leave-in is light-weight so it will not weigh you hair down, it’s an amazing de-tangler, and will leave your locks feeling silky and shiny until your next wash. I am an avid fan of Inphemon products, so I am naturally excited to announce that I am offering the Inphenom 5-Step Treatment by appointment for a limited time special of only $60. This is an exclusive in-salon only deep-conditioning treatment that will rehydrated your locks after months of sun, salt water, and chlorine exposure. Your hair health needs to be restored after so much fun in the sun and it is especially important to be on top of it now as the colder months approach. I do this treatment on my own hair every single month without fail. To book your appointment, contact me via e-mail. What are some of your favorite under-the-radar hair products?
