        Take Back Your Hair    
Why does frizz happen? The culprit is most likely overly porous hair cuticles. Lacking adequate hydration levels, compromised strands exchange moisture with the surrounding air. The hair shaft swells and the result isn’t pretty. Hence, a humid day is a bad hair day. The key is to lock down the hair’s capacity to frizz by restoring its natural barrier. With a few essential tips, you can take back control of your hair, whatever the weather.

Play hot-and-cold as you dry

When using a round brush to dry your hair in sections, start from the roots and dry all the way to the ends, letting the brush linger at the tips of your strands. Let your hair cool off like this on its own for five seconds, then repeat on another section. Alternating between heat and cool-down time helps set your style, and your blowout will have more body.
 Mousse Misconception

There is a misconception on how to properly use foam mouse. The belief is to apply a baseball size amount in your hands and apply to the whole head of hair from roots to ends entirely. This could be no further from the truth, mouse unlike most volumizing products, is a roots ONLY product. It is not  designed for the mid shaft to ends of the hair; to do so, will cause the hair strands to bind together, and when dry, to clump together and weigh the hair down. 

The proper way to apply mouse is first; try to remove excess water off the roots of the hair by 35-40 percent. Excess water dilutes the product thus weakening it and taking away its durability to last long term; second, apply a golf ball sized amount to your hand and apply evenly to the roots of the hair; try not to take the product more than 1 inch out passed the roots; third with your finger tips, massage the product into roots and scalp to distribute the product evenly; finally, if blow drying, start with the roots first to secure it , then finish mid shaft and ends.

Tortoiseshell hair as the technique to watch for 2015

Tortoiseshell hair as the technique to watch for 2015. There's always a risk for a brunette going from a dark brunette to a lighter shade without any orange tones (which brunettes generally hate!) but this lools loke some lovely balayage with that wonderful strong yet soft highlight around the face. This hits all the right buttons for tortoiseshell trend with lots of tones and warmer rather than cool shades. Whatever you want to call the technique. We say it's a hit!

Wrap—don't clamp—your hair for quick curls. When using a curling iron, you don't need to fasten your locks to the barrel.
 Wrap sections around the iron and hold in place for about 10 seconds to score the same soft, sexy curls.
         Curly Hair

1. Curly hair requires more maintenance then straight or wavy hair.

2. Ditch your BRUSH, and NEVER comb curls with a small tooth comb. Always finger comb or style with a wide tooth comb and comb curls in sections, from the bottom up to the root. NEVER comb curls out when the hair is dry, this can cause the hair to tangle and break off. Moisturize the hair before thoroughly combing curls.

3. NEVER sleep on a full head of curls with out detangling! Always comb curls thoroughly before bed. Finger part your curls down the center and braid hair into (2) Indian braids, or pull hair up into a high bun to protect the hair from tangling/matting while sleep.

4. Always, always, always sleep with a silk scarf, bonnet, or satin pillow case to protect your curls and keep the moisture in the hair. Cotton scarfs or pillow cases can adversely affect the shine of the hair and suck out all the moistures which will ultimately cause the hair to dry out.

     Growing Out Your Hair

A common comment I have heard from clients is." i have heard from stylists that, if I want to grow my hair out longer,
 I need to cut a half and inch off a month and it will grow out faster" this could be no further from the truth.
 The simple truth is, cutting a half of an inch will simply maintain the length it currently is on average, only a small percentage of people are ever able to get more than an inch
 of hair growth per month; 
so cutting a half inch will only simply maintain the length it already is. To effectively grow your hair out quickly from a short style, an effective plan with your stylist is the best bet.
 A stylist can design cuts to go with your transition until the desired length is achieved .
