The Beauty Of Mid-Length Hair

The Beauty Of Mid-Length Hair

The Beauty Of Mid-Length Hair By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
 
Aaahhh, mid-length hair! It’s such a great way to have the best of both worlds. The best thing about it is this: anyone can wear a mid-length style!
 
It’s so versatile. This length can be cut to suit your own unique style. You can layer it or keep it one length with offset or full fringe.
 
• Flip the ends
• Tousle it with waves
• Or give it lots of volume
 
Girls with curls look marvelous with this length! Or, if you don’t have any curls, create some for a soft, romantic look.
 
Those wildly popular sexy, messy updo’s all started with the mid-length cut. It’s the perfect style for the gal who doesn’t want to go for extremes in length, but wants lots of style.
 
And mid-length cuts are the ultimate wash and wear style. Just a few simple layers lightly tousled and you’re done. Or, use a bit of wax for that “piecy” look.
 
Feeling wild? Bring out the hairspray and add lots of volume. It’s stylish in a snap without the hassle!

Got Dry Hair?

Got Dry Hair?

Got Dry Hair? By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
 
Dry hair is a real pain to deal with! It won’t hold curl, frizzes, and has little body or bounce.
 
Dry locks can be caused by many factors: your hair type, your styling habits, or how often you condition your hair. This hair type is literally screaming for extra tender loving care. So do just that!
 
You can start by giving your hair some “rest” days from so much styling. Put it up in a messy updo or use a fun barrette for some sass.
 
Deep conditioning weekly is a must. For an extra boost, talk to us about professional hydrating treatments. These will boost the results of your regular hair care considerably.
 
Make sure your shampoo is a hydrating one. This is essential! And do consider adding a quality hair oil or other smoothing product to renew body, bounce and shine.
 
Got specific questions? That’s what we’re here for!

When Your Hair Colour Won’t Hold By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
 
It’s maddening, isn’t it? And there is a name for it: resistant grey. It’s really hard to cover resistant grey hair with box colour.
 
Salons use different chemicals to pop open hair cuticles and soften the strands, allowing the colour to penetrate more easily.
 
When it comes to the health of your hair, it’s best to let us do it. We love hair so much we spent a whole year in school to understand it and work with it!

PLEASE Break These 6 “Hair Care” Rules!

PLEASE Break These 6 “Hair Care” Rules!

PLEASE Break These 6 “Hair Care” Rules! By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
 
Beware! Some well-meaning practices actually reduce product effectiveness, making hair more difficult to work with.
 
– Applying product to sopping wet hair. This just dilutes the product making it far less effective. A better option is to blow dry your hair until it’s damp, then apply styling products. For short hair, this rule breaker does not apply
 
– Brushing 100 strokes a day. This does NOT help your hair, quite the opposite. It causes breakage and can activate your oil glands making hair greasier. Do brush your hair but don’t go overboard!
 
– Hair colour damages your hair. Hooey! This may have been true 20 years ago, but today, salon colour is loaded with extra conditioners. Want to colour your hair? Go for it (Box colour is a totally different story!)
 
– Only thick, dry hair needs deep conditioning. Even fine hair benefits from weekly deep conditioning treatments. The key, like everything, is to get the right formula. Use a protein-based conditioner rather than a moisturizing one to keep fine hair healthy, not weighted down.
 
– Always use a comb on wet hair. Not so. If you mist your hair with a leave-in conditioner or use a few drops of NAK  Aroma Intensive Treatment to coat the hair shaft, it will allow your brush to slide through easily.
 
– Blow dry from back to front. Start in the front. This is the area people see first, so it makes sense to start there, plus it reduces potential frizz!

The Cure For “Help! I Can’t Do Anything With My Curly Hair!”

The Cure For “Help! I Can’t Do Anything With My Curly Hair!”

The Cure For “Help! I Can’t Do Anything With My Curly Hair!” By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
 
From corkscrew to wavy locks, curly girls everywhere seem to have the same complaint. Their hair is in charge and they don’t like it!
 
The good news is there is a cure for unruly curls. So listen up if you want to take charge of your hair and love those beautiful locks.
 
First of all, curly hair is the most difficult hair type of all. You need an experienced stylist trained in specific cutting techniques for curly hair. We’ve had extensive training in learning how to properly cut curly hair for easy manageability and styling. The method we use for our fashion and spiral perms works beautifully.
 
Using the wrong products for your hair type is another biggie. When frustrated curly girls come to see us here’s what we usually find:
 
– They are using over-the-counter products, which are made with larger molecules that just sit on your hair cuticle
 
– They don’t know their hair type and texture. So they buy the wrong products that don’t work that well anyway. Talk about frustration!
 
With our professional line, NAK, and our advanced expertise, we can get you on the right track quickly. Our professional products are made with smaller molecules that penetrate the hair to give long-lasting superior results.
 
The last hurdle is using the right amount of the right product. Curly hair is drier and needs moisture. That’s why your products are so important. When your stylist says, “Use a liberal amount,” do it!
 
Embrace your curls! Give them the special attention they deserve. They are as unique as you are. We promise you’ll love the results.

How To Stop Fighting With Your Hair!

How To Stop Fighting With Your Hair!

How To Stop Fighting With Your Hair! By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
 
Remember that classic movie line, “I’ll have what she’s having”? Well, that’s pretty much human nature.
 
We always think the grass is greener on the other side. And that’s true with hair. So how can you make your hair the envy of your friends?
 
Understand it! Here are a few tips on how to make your own natural-born texture work for you.
 
Fine Hair – Researchers at L’Oreal discovered that fine strands not only have a smaller diameter than other hair types, they also have a “don’t touch me” attitude. Thick fibers rub up against each other creating volume, fine hair doesn’t. Use a volumising shampoo and add volumising mousse to the roots of your hair. Extensions are also a possibility.
 
Curly Hair – With multiple types of curls on each head of curly hair, the name of the game is control. Strands take twists and turns causing the cuticle to lift, giving the appearance of dryness. To control curly hair, the cut is critical. Layers are essential and so is the shampoo. It must be gentle and go easy on product!
 
Thick, Coarse Hair – You’ve got thickness, volume and the envy of the rest of us! But the large diameter of thick hair means it absorbs more moisture from the environment. And that means frizz. Good quality hair oil is key here. It adds shine, softness, and seals in moisture. Use a ceramic-coated styling brush to speed up blow-drying time.
 
Each of us has our own natural beauty! The trick is to understand what your hair needs and how you can work with it to feel like a million bucks!
 
We’d love to give you your best-ever tresses!

Does Conditioner Make Oily Hair Oilier?

Does Conditioner Make Oily Hair Oilier? By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
 
What a common misconception for those with oily tresses! The fact is, a problematic scalp, not hair products, causes greasy hair.
 
To rid yourself of greasiness, you must clean away oil and buildup that clog the pores of your scalp.
 
How? Use a stimulating and exfoliating oil or a salon-quality hair oil.  It may seem strange to use an oil to get rid of oil, but like attracts like in a good way!
 
Exfoliating oils contain essential oils that exfoliate dead skin cells clogging your scalp and causing hair oiliness.
 
Next, shampoo and lightly condition. Now you have soft, manageable hair with lots of volume.

Long Hair Care Tips By Hair Salon Helensburgh Call Us On 02 4294 1985
nbsp;
As with all hairstyles, long hair does require maintenance to keep it looking lush. Here are some easy tips for rocking your locks.
 
– Wash it gently! Use a top quality shampoo formulated for your specific type of hair (dry, normal combination, or oily). We can help you there. Scrub the hair on your scalp and massage down to the ends.
 
– Use a top quality conditioner. Pay special attention to the ends of your hair. Press it into the ends, but gently. No rubbing!
 
– Rinse with warm then cool water—not hot. Hot water is damaging, causing it to look frizzy, which makes it difficult to style.
 
– Dry it gently! (Are you sensing a theme here?) Use a soft towel or cotton T-shirt to squeeze out excess moisture. Wrapping you hair in a towel or twisting it on your head can damage it and make it rough.
 
– Use a leave-in conditioner or detangler, especially if your hair is thick and/or curly. These products can keep your hair soft and manageable.
 
– Get trims every 6-8 weeks. This will remove split ends. Excess weight can cause hair to become oily, frizzy or dry.
 
Remember, your lifestyle shows in your long hair! Excessive stress, lack of sleep, smoking, and poor exercise habits make it harder to keep your hair healthy. For head turning looks, take care of your hair both outside and inside!
