Why clip-in extensions are the way to go!

Clip-in Extensions

If you're anything like me, you don't like anything too permanent which is why I LOVE clip-in extensions!!!

There are many types of extensions; most of which are long lasting and can be damaging to the hair but with clip-ins, you can interchange colours and lengths without any damage! Not to worry; you don't have to be a magician or hair stylist to put them in either...you can easily do it yourself!

How about a funky purple piece on those days you feel sassy or a few blonde pieces on top to brighten up your look?

How to get rid of static in your hair

In the winter there is less humidity in the air and the heating in our homes is a dry heat, so you can imagine how that dryness affects our hair!  During the cold season comes the inevitable static electricity that collects in the hair and tends to build up when we brush the hair, removing a sweater, hat, scarf, etc.  Sound familiar?  Let's look at some tips and tricks to lessen static cling and stop flyaway hair!

The laundry room is the first place to head if you are looking for an immediate solution to static-y hair.

Bangs...are they for you?

Are you are bored with your look?  Want to do something bold without changing your existing hair style? How about bangs!  Creating a bang is a substantial change to your look so how do you know if it will work for you?  Here are a few tips for figuring out whether to bang or not to bang!

If you have a long forehead (a lot of space between the bridge of your nose and your hair lineexRhianna or Tyra Banks), bangs are a great option for you!  It’s only common sense that if you have a large forehead, covering it with bangs will eliminate that illusion.

HAIR COLOUR- DRUGSTORE VS PROFESSIONAL

So, it’s that time again.  It’s been six weeks and there’s no putting it off any longer.  You need your colour done but  the dilemma is the same; do you spend the money (and have it professionally done) or cheap out (and make a trip to the drugstore)….that is the question!  Learn why having your colour done by a professional with professional products is be better for your hair and  potentially your pocketbook! 

Many people argue that using drugstore colour is great because of the convenience and low cost, but I am here to give you the facts on why it’s in your best interest not to use it.

PROFESSIONAL VS DRUGSTORE BRANDS

You’ve seen the commercials for shampoos that make your hair extra shiny for a fraction of the cost of professional products, right?  You want your hair to look just like the  model’s so you go right out and buy it, right? Well, I’m here to tell you…to STOP!!!!

As a professional hair stylist, it’s important for me and my clients to have nice, shiny and healthy hair so I can relate to your urges to go and buy a product that promises to deliver shiny, silky, frizz-free hair.  But there are reasons why that product, full of promises, is only a fraction of the cost…you get what you pay for!

Voluminous Hair How-To

Contrary to popular belief, you don’t need any fancy gadgets or expensive gimmicks to get volume in your hair.  All you need is a comb or brush!  Here’s how you do it!

bristle brushApply a styling aid (mousse, gel, serum, etc) to your wet hair and blowdry/straighten as normal.  When you are finished, grab your comb or brush.  If you’re going to use a brush, a bristle brush works best and they‘re very inexpensive. You can purchase one at your local drug store.  A vent brush won’t do the job and a round brush will only get entangled in your hair.

Brides, Bet You Never Thought Of This!

The tiara is bought but now you’re thinking it doesn't seem to reflect your unique sense of style. Well, here’s an idea for you!
Place your tiara on the back of your head instead of facing front. Place it just below your crown and make sure it’s sitting comfortably and pin in.  This technique works best with a half up-half down style where the intricate work is on top and the the rest of the hair will hang below the tiara. It could also be done with a full up do where it would be amid all of the curls/detailed work.

Brides...Here's An Idea For You!

Brides…did you know?

So you’ve got the dress, shoes, jewellery…but you just can’t decide what you want for your tiara.!  Well of course you can’t! With so many shapes, sizes and costs out there, choosing one more thing can be overwhelming!  Here’s an idea that is innovative, creative and often, can add an extra sentimental touch to your big day.
Do you have a necklace that was given to you by someone important or that you’ve worn to an important occasion in the past? Why not wear it as your tiara?
