Now more than ever you require a treatment to combat frizziness, damage, breakage and dullness as Summer contributes to these problems.

BUT WHICH TREATMENT FOR YOU ?

Damaged hair – PROTEIN

Our hair is made up of proteins with the outer layer of the hair resembling shingles on a roof. When the cuticle becomes damaged it exposes the inner-layer ( cortex) to styling and environmental damage. To repair the hair a protein treatment is often used, the protein fills and strengthens areas of the cuticle that have been damaged by wear and tear.

BEWARE OF USING TOO MUCH PROTEIN.

Since protein is a strengthener it can make the hair very hard which will make it more prone to breakage. Protein treatments should be used no more than once a fortnight.

Dry Hair – MOISTURE

Moisture is the way to go when addressing dry hair. Hair becomes dry before it gets damaged so stop damage in it’s tracks with a moisture treatment. If hair is lacking moisture it  becomes harder to style, frizzier and looses shine. There’s no way to overdose on moisture but keep in mind your texture. If your hair is very fine too many moisture treatments can leave it limp and greasy.

Super- Charge Moisturiser – Moisture Treatment

PROBLEM: Fine straight hair can become limp when exposed to humidity. Moisture from the air settles on the surface of this type of hair instead of penetrating it. In other words it weighs hair down.

SOLUTION: Add volume at the roots with hairspray or a matt styling powder. Divide the hair into sections and spray or sprinkle the underside then gently back-comb each section.

PREVENTION: Lay off the heavy styling products. It’s tempting to douse fine hair with volume  sprays to help combat limpness, these products cause build-up at the roots and in humid weather flatten hair even more. Bulk up on protein, fine straight hair lacks protein, which gives hair body and helps hold a style in humidity. To add protein, shampoo and condition with protein rich products.

RECOMMENDATIONS:

Schwarzkopf Osis Dust It Matt Powder “light style control and buildable hold”

De Lorenzo Elements Granite ” strong hold hair lacquer with certified organic bark oil”

Paul Mitchell Shampoo 2 ” cleansing colour-safe formula leaving hair fresh, shiny and full of body”

Elizabeth Moss at the Emmys

Sarah Hyland Emmys

 

Wow! Elizabeth Moss & Sarah Hyland were by far my favourite hairstyles at this year’s Emmys.

Elizabeth’s grown out pixie do suits all face shapes and compliments a longer fringe. Tapered at the neck softly creating movement and shape. With her fine hair her honey blonde not only creates bounce and fullness but says “Hollywood here I come”.

Sarah Hyland absolutely stole the show in a high ballerina bun. Situated high on her head it perfectly showed off her blonde highlights and allowed her makeup to shine.

Get the look :

  • Apply styling lotion to damp hair to add texture and shine.
  • Blow dry large sections of hair using a large bristle round brush directing the hair away from the face.
  • Using a straightening iron on medium heat to smooth any cowlicks or kinks around the hairline.
  • Brush the hair upwards towards the top of the head smoothing flyways with hairspray
  • Secure the hair in a ponytail with elastic. To add texture, backcomb the ponytail with a brush and hairspray.
  • Finally twist and wrap the hair into a bun and secure with bobby-pins. You can pull out small pieces of hair with your finger-tips or a tail comb for a edgy undone look.

 

 

You don’t have to live by the coast to achieve beach-like hair, as actor Taylor Kitsch. Grow your hair to about chin length and mostly one length.

Have your stylists slice or chip into the ends with a few disconnected long layers to create movement.

To create a sun kissed look ask your stylist for subtle balyage highlights. This will lighten the bottom gradually, going darker to the roots.

The key to remember is that it should appear naturally sunkissed.

Apply sea salt spray or matted wax for added texture and you will look like you have ‘hanged ten’ all day!

  1. You can spend hours on styling – and a small fortune on products – but nothing will improve your style more than a simple trim.emma-watson-2014-oscars-051-781x1024
  2. Be sure to visit your hairdresser every four to six weeks to rid hair of split ends and tidy up your cut.
  3. Split ends will only split further if not taken off. As a rule, if you want to maintain a healthy style, every time your hair grows an inch, cut an inch.
  4. Your hair will not only look healthier, it will appear thicker too.

Fringes have been a simple way to update your look when you don’t particularly want a major change or are bored with your hair.

Whether it’s short or long a new fringe is the answer. Fringes have received a serious star following in 2014 and are a great way to accentuate different parts of your face.

Whilst wearing it heavy might hide a longer forehead, face framing fringes can create the illusion of more defined cheekbones.

Fringes are a time saver if you’re failing to create a look with the rest of your hair. Throwing your hair-up or in a pony-tail a fringe will soften and frame your face.

Disconnected and short pixie like fringes have always been my personal favourite worn by the likes of Michelle Williams and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast in Tiffany’s. I recommend a delicate bone structure and an angular face for women to wear this look.

The part in the middle eye-skimming fringe worn by Alexa Chung is ideal for women who are growing out fringes.

Side swept fringes are cut into an angle, shorter toward the part, so it will be easy to push the hair to the side. These fringes are recommended for anyone who hasn’t tried a fringe before.

Let your face be your guide when deciding on a fringe and never take matters in your own hands, your stylist will be glad to take a few minutes to give you a trim.

  1. Consultation is the key. Play with hair colour swatches near your face to get an idea what tone of brunette would suit your skin and eye colour.
  2. Indulge in a weekly moisturising mask. Shiny brunettes look great if your hair is healthy and nourished.
  3. To disguise any roots and to keep your colour looking fresh, make sure you get hair coloured every 6-8 weeks.
  4. Experiment with different tones, add a bold surface colour with a different shade around the face to create more depth. Adding warmer highlights will bring out new dimensions in brunettes.
  5. Going from blonde to brunette can completely change your look and you will need to adapt your make-up to suit. Dark hair makes your features more shadowy so your eyes will require extra definition.
  6. Never go more than two shades darker than your natural colour to keep it looking natural.
  7. Semi- permanents are the best colours designed when achieving darker shades. These colours gradually fade and contribute to a shiny finish, which will add a great focal point.
  8. Balancing cool undertones in your complexion try warm hues like chestnut brown, auburn and cinnamon. Ebony brown, mocha and violet based colours will enhance the natural warmth of your skin.
  9. Deep dark tones of espresso and inky black look striking next to blue based complexions. Warm hits of wine illuminate but don’t overwhelm deep natural browns.
  10. Shampoo and conditioner formulated for brunettes bring out the best in your colour. Avoid the awkward greys showing with Roux colour crayons. This root blending product is great because it temporarily covers roots until your next colour visit.

Some popular trend colours are :

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Mulberry Wine
  • Burnt Toffee

1.  Wash and towel dry your hair, next evenly distribute gel, mousse or salt spray. Using a blow drier stretch the hair with your fingers in upward strokes at the front and back at the sides, directing the airflow down at the back of your head.

2. Testing to feel your hair is bone dry before applying a matte wax or paste. Begin with a ten cent amount, rub vigorously in your palms to warm the product and immediately apply throughout the entire head, messing it up to make sure every bit of hair has been worked.

3. To achieve the desired volume, create circular motions with your palm around the crown of your head dragging your hand up. Follow with the same moves at the front and back throughout each of the side sections.
