Keep It Simple when it comes to your hair products

Less is definitely more when it comes to applying hair products. For bouncy shiny hair with lots of movement,I live by only these three products:

Pureology Super Smooth Shampoo and Condition- I was recommended Pureology when I got my first Keratin treatment because it was sulfate free and helped extend the life of the Keratin. I’ve always gone back to it since then. I highly recommend using any sulfate free shampoo, as sulfates dry out and strip the hair of moisture. Some prefer “Poo” (i.e. lather), while some opt for no poo (a conditioning cleanse like Wen). Pureology lathers up clean, but leaves the hair soft and managable. Retails for appx. $27

Kerastase Serum Oleo-Relax- A powerful oil that helps tame frizz, add glossy shine, but is so lightweight, you can’t even tell you have anything in your hair. And it’s super concentrated so only 2 pumps are necessary each use. Retails for appx. $36

3 Steps to a Beautiful Blowout

17.11.13

Finished Product with title 3 Steps to a Beautiful Blowout

 

Mastering a blowout can be downright tricky, intimidating, and frustrating. But it’s a skill every woman should have on their bucket list.

So here are 3 simple steps anyone, but especially girls with very thick or curly hair, can use to get an awesome blow out at home:

***Just a word to the wise. It’s crucial to start with a great hair cut. When you have a great cut, your hair should be less maintenance, not more. Philly area girls need to check out Salon Vanity in Center City. Ask for Susan! Her hair cuts and blow outs are the best in the city***

Collage Final 3 Steps to a Beautiful Blowout

Please excuse the lack of makeup here ;)

1. Divide the hair into small sections. It’s so much easier to work with smaller amounts of hair at a time and it helps prevent frizz. I usually section my hair in 5–two in the back, one on each side, and one on top.

2. Reverse the brush.  Hold the brush as if you are going to flip your hair up, not under. Why? You get the best tension, therefore straightest hair possible. This part is key in my blow drys since my hair is so curly and thick.

3. Curl the hair under. Once you have dried the section of the hair 3/4 quarters of the way using the reverse hold, finish drying the rest under.

And that’s it. Repeat until all sections are done! It will take a little bit to really get good styling your hair with a round brush and blow dryer, but its worth it. The finished result has so much more volume and movement then with a flat iron.

Stay tuned for the tools to use and products needed for a great blow out post this week!

Who would have thought Aquaphor and Sugar!!??

Dull flaky skin that needs a quick remedy…. read on!!

aquaphor 396x528 Who would have thought Aquaphor and Sugar!!??

A client sits in my makeup chair for her on camera appearance and the first thing I see is dry flaky spots all over her skin.

I didn’t have a facial scrub with me so I had to think quick I couldn’t apply makeup just yet. We all know the makeup only looks as good as the skin. I always carry some aquaphor with me and I happen to see a packet of sugar lying around. So I quickly did  a mix of both sugar and aquaphor now what do I have ?? A scrub.!

I gently applied it to the areas that needed it with a q- tip  then with my finger  in a circular motion I started peeling the dead skin off.

I was amazed at how great her skin looked .. However if your gong to try this please make sure you thoroughly wash off the aquaphor and sugar before the makeup application.
