As we are heading into Valentine's Day, love is in the hair! As one hair artist to another, we all have at least one love in common: HAIR.
My career as a hair stylist is dedicated to teaching you to love and take care of your hair, so that you can always feel and look your best. Hair is a thriving industry because for most of us, hair is such an important characteristic that unveils our personality and maximizes our confidence.
Hair is versatile: You can cut it, and it will grow back; you can completely transform the cut and the color; you can curl it, straighten it, braid it, or wear it up, etc. You can do whatever you want to your hair, and for the most part, it is not permanent. You can have fun and try new things... The possibilities are seriously endless and it is SO fun!
The health and style of your hair can easily change your entire look, and by loving your hair you're loving yourself.
How do you love your hair?
- Well, to start off make sure you are trimming it every 6-8 weeks.
- I also tell my clients NOT to overdo the heat factor. I know that some of you feel the need to blow dry, straighten, and/or curl your hair EVERYDAY, but I will urge you NOT to do it. I personally let my hair air dry and utilize great products that add volume and bounce to my hair.
- Similarly, DON'T wash your hair every day; it strips the essential oils from your hair. Use a dry shampoo on your roots in between washes.
- In terms of coloring your hair, do your best to stay away from too much lightener! The lightener will eventually damage your ends, and you may have to cut off more than you want to.
You have the ability to have the hair you have always wanted, so show your hair stylist a picture of your inspiration and leave his/her chair with confidence! Once you leave, make sure you are doing your part with the upkeep (trims, less heat, less lightener, good conditioner, etc), and your hair will love you for it.
While many people’s thoughts around this time of year turn to pink candy hearts, pink roses, pink champagne and pink cupcakes the hair obsessed find themselves dreaming of pink hair color! There are so many variations to dream about including this sweet pink ombré transformation!
Hair transformations are hands down the best part of my job! Here is a recent transformation of Gianna...Doesn't her new pink ombré bring out her beautiful features? Her hair is seriously feeling the love.
