Scrunchies are everywhere and we are so into it!

Scrunchies are everywhere and we are so into it!

They are becoming more popular and partly one of the reasons is that, well yes they are cute, they are also better for your hair than regular hair ties.
— Scrunchies have less tension than a hair tie but can grab x3 times the amount of hair. They don’t leave a dent in your hair and are super gentle.

Why don’t scrunchies damage your hair?
A scrunchie is made using an elastic band concealed in fabric tubing, adding a layer between the elastic and your hair. This is the main reason why you get less hair damage when using one. Most hair damage is done during the time your hair is wet or damp, so always wait until your hair is completely dry before tying your hair up and styling in general.

Tips on How to Maintain Red Hair

Tips on How to Maintain Red Hair

1. Always rinse red hair (natural or color-treated) with cool water to seal the hair cuticle.
2. Avoid over-shampooing your hair. I recommend two times a week maximum and follow up using a dry shampoo.
3. Always use sulfate-free, color-safe shampoo and conditioners. This will help keep color from fading.
4. Redheads should always book a gloss in-between color services to refresh tone, maintain vibrancy, and replenish moisture and shine.

WHAT’S A BLOWOUT?

WHAT’S A BLOWOUT?

WHAT’S A BLOWOUT?

A blowout is when you blow-dry and style your hair with a round brush.
(It’s easier said than done!) LOL

Most of the time you end up with a big frizzy mess or your brush gets tangled up in your hair. A few of us get the soft smooth bouncy results you’d get from getting one professionally done!

KR: As a hairstylist, I have always been an entrepreneur. Even when I was renting a chair in a salon, I was responsible for covering my overhead, and marketing my services. It made sense to me that owning my own salon meant I would be able to work toward building my own dream rather than working to build someone else’s business.

Did You Know These Facts About Your Hair?

Can you guess how many hairs you have on your head? Whether your hair is straight or curly, thick or thin, most people have between 100,000 and 150,000. Hair is made from the protein keratin. This is the same substance as your nails. On average, we lose 50 – 100 hairs every day.

Did You Know These Facts About Your Hair?

From stick straight to big and curly, hair comes in all colors and can go through many changes throughout your life. What you eat affects your hair. The lack of certain nutrients can cause your hair to fall out.

Can you make your hair grow faster? Yes! Get frequent trims. Cutting off split ends will not only allow your hair to grow faster but will also make it shinier and smoother.

Does Brushing Your Hair Before Bed Do Any Good? Again, yes. Brushing your hair before bed will actually distribute the oils and keep it naturally moisturized. It will also help increase circulation, which will keep your scalp healthier.

Is Your Skin Red or Irritated?

Have you noticed that your skin appears irritated or red lately? Has anything changed in your skincare regimen? Think about whether you are using any new products. Either your makeup or skincare system could be to blame. You might also have skin allergies.

Redness and irritation could also be related to any of the following:

Is Your Skin Red or Irritated?

Are You Leaving Makeup on Too Long?

The last thing you want to do after a late night on the town is to take off your makeup. Leaving it on can not only clog your pores, but it can also cause irritation. It’s a good habit to keep up. If you’re not going out, instead of removing your makeup at night before bed, try removing it at the end of the day when you get home from work instead.

Are Makeup Wipes Enough?

It’s tempting to assume that makeup wipes are all you need. They are not. Oils and makeup can be responsible for pimples and blackheads. No matter how tired you are, always wash your face with a light abrasive cleanser after you remove your makeup. The cleanser will help remove the built-up oils, dirt and bacteria that makeup wipes alone will not. Using only one wipe might work well enough in some spots but it can leave remnants of your makeup in areas you clean last.

Caution! 

Use a different wipe on your face than the one you use on your eyes. Wiping your eyes with the same wipe you use on your face with allow bacteria to get into your eyes. Wiping your face with the same wipe with which you removed your eye makeup can grind the eye makeup and mascara into your delicate skin. This can lead to clogged pores.

Makeup wipes are good when that is all you have but remember they are no substitute for a good face washing.

Are Your Lips Dry?

Winter breezes can dry your skin. Your lips can dry and crack. It’s tempting to lick your lips when they’re dry, but that only makes matters worse. It can cause your lips to dry and peel. When the delicate layer of skin over your lips dries, it can wrinkle. There is nothing less attractive than peeling lips–especially when you apply lipstick!

Lip Exfoliation

To keep your skin looking young and smooth, you can exfoliate. Exfoliation means to slough off skin–dead skin to reveal the healthy skin beneath it. It’s important not to overlook your lips.

Our lips are constantly moving and flexing in a variety of ways when we eat and talk, and to keep this flexibility, our lips must continuously grow new, healthy cells. Even smiling puts stress on our lips.

Where does this old skin go? Unfortunately, our bodies aren’t very efficient at removing the old, dead cells, making manual lip exfoliation a necessity if you want to keep your lips kissably soft and smooth.

There are a variety of ways to exfoliate your lips. Here are a few tips:

1) Make sure your lips are clean. Remove any lipstick or makeup before you start.
2) Sugar mixed with honey is a natural exfoliant that will also moisturize. Gently rub into your lips and leave on for about 5-10 minutes. Wash away.
3) Limit exfoliation to once a week.
4) Always put a thick layer of moisturizer on your lips after exfoliating.

Before going outdoors, be sure to put on lip balm with an SPF component to protect from the sun.
