The perfect touseled beach wave

How do you achieve the desired beach wave? First you must have some helpful products, such as hairspray, iron guard, texture spray and and oil or serum; and don’t forget your flat iron! (1 – 1 1/2 inch)

Start with dry hair, sectioning off your hair starting at the bottom. Part off leaving 1 to 1 1/2 inches of hair down to wave. Next, determine how loose you want your wave ; The thicker the section the loser the curl or wave .

Start with spraying your section with iron guard. Next use your flat iron starting at the base of the strand, start turning your flat iron making sure you are turning it in the opposite direction of your face , it also helps to keep the top of the iron pointed downwards while you slowly move down the strand. (Repeat until finished)

If you are looking for a more textured look you can stop turning your flat iron before you hit the bottom of your hair strand leaving the ends straight.
Lastly add some product. Use some texture spray at the root of your hair for more volume. Also an oil or serum helps to add shine and break up some of the waves – using a dime sized amount rub your fingers through your hair starting at the ends . Finish the look with a light hairspray to ensure a better hold .

How to ensure your salon style at home – product knowledge

In the salon we quite often hear clients talking about how to up keep their hair at home. Here are a few tips to help you out. We all know salon services can be quite lengthy and sometimes expensive, so why not want the most Long Jevity possible? If your hair is colored, or has received a chemical service it all falls back on the product you use at home. Using a salon professional color care shampoo and conditioner will ensure that you are protecting the color in your hair, which will result in slower fading, high shine, and an overall better appearance. Secondly, for those of you who use a thermal iron on your hair, make a heat protectant your best friend. What this product does is it creates a barrier on your hair, to protect from damage from a curling iron, flat iron, or even blow dryer. Although we all love a gorgeous finished look, without proper care, it can be damaging.
Lastly, how are you washing your hair? With product being a good thing, often times you can receive buildup , or maybe you feel like your hair just doesn’t quite feel the same. How to fix it? You should always shampoo your hair twice before conditioning. The first shampoo is scrubbing off the top layer (I.e products, hairspray etc.) your second wash is cleansing your hair of natural oils and dirt. Shampooing twice before your condition will allow your hair to spring back up, and appear more voluminous, and light weight.

The perfect salon blow-out:

As salon professionals, we often get asked how to use a round brush and the proper way to blow dry.  Here are a few simple, styling secrets:   When using a round brush, the first step is choosing the right brush for your hair.  The longer the hair, the bigger the brush.  Now for the real secret:   your hair does not retain shape or hold style until it is about 90% dry.  With this being said, don’t go to your round brush with totally wet hair.  Not only is this a waste of time, you will not be able to achieve your desired look.

a) roughly dry your hair 80 – 90 % with a paddle brush.

b) section hair starting at the nape, make sure the section of hair is no thicker than the diameter of your brush.

c) use tension while wrapping your hair around the brush, this will create a smoother looking style.

d) moving upward towards the crown of your head, keep your sections held at a 45 degree angle.

e) once you begin round brushing the top most sections of your hair, increase your section angle to achieve your desired amount of volume (higher section angle = maximum volume).

f) finish your look off with desired styling products of your choice.

 

Work with the flow of your brush, not against it.  Have fun with your style, after all, who wants to use a flat iron every day?
