New Year’s Hair Secrets

lcupdopony

What items are necessary to creating amazing New Year’s Eve hair?

(whether you wear it up or down..)

      Always start with dry, clean hair by making sure to shampoo 1-3X with a detoxing shampoo like Maxi Wash by Kevin Murphy followed with a little conditioning rinse on the ends. Any oils on your hair will weigh your hair down and may cause it to fall out/down more. You may use an oil free volumizer like Kevin Murphy’s Anti Gravity lotion or spray when blowdrying after washing. This type of product will help your hair to take the style as well as support it for enduring a long night of fun!

FOR LONGER HAIR:

  1. Fine toothed comb
  2. Bobby Pins
  3. High quality Hair Spray/Fixative (We use Working Spray by Alterna Caviar or Firm Hold Moroccan Oil Hairspray)
  4. Curling Iron (Preferrably 1-2″ in diameter)
  5. Boar bristle brush

Once your hair is prepped, start curling the hair into a set where you curl a 1-2″ section and set it with a clip or bobby pin. Curling towards the face will be more retro or vintage (1940’s-1960’s) and away from the face more modern (1970’s-now). Its always a best practice to mist the hair lightly with hairspray before and after curling. On finer hair, you can back comb the root to help the volume you create  This set acts like a base style for many types of looks once you the curls have cooled.

Whether you just want a bouncy blowout look, half up half down, a soft high ponytail with flipped ends, or a full on loose curl updo- this base style helps amp up your sexy vixen look for the New Year! Finger separate the curls once taken down and slowly brush the ‘do into shape. Quick Tip: Use the brush to tease in volume underneath the style in certain sections to give it soft volume. You can also use the curling iron freehand to help sculpt certain waves into staying put.  TRY: Twist the hair and curl with the iron to create messy, beach waves.

FOR SHORTER HAIR:

  1. Fine toothed comb
  2. Small to Medium Flat iron and/or curling iron
  3. Pomades (Night Rider or Easy Rider styling products by Kevin Murphy)
  4. Bobby pins (optional)
  5. Quality Hairspray (optional)

 

Just because you have shorter hair doesn’t mean you can’t fix it up pretty for that big party! Part your hair in a new spot, try some asymmetry or add volume by backcombing where you wouldn’t usually in a day to day situation. Embrace change! If your hair  is usually perfectly coiffed go for a messier do or slick it up if with Easy Rider if you are usually more laissez faire. Try a combed up pompadour that has height with Night Rider- the sticky matte texture makes funkier hairstyles fun but be warned! It gets tacky within 10 seconds so make sure you know what style you are headed for.

If your hair is more medium length, use the curling iron to make random curls and waves all over your head and then pin a couple back. TIP: Criss cross the bobby pins or hook them into a style to make them secure. Or brush out some curls for a loose wave retro look. Just make sure to spray with Working Spray when complete.

BRAZILIAN BLOWOUT IS BACK!!!!

The Brazilian Blowout treatment is back, and I like it! Doing smoothing treatments has been one of my specialties for a while. I’ve had mixed results with a few of the different brands, but, this one seems to be the best one. Come in and see me for a treatment! The price is dependent on length and thickness, starting at $90.

“Through the use of a Brazilian Super Nutrient Complex and a proprietary polymer system, the Brazilian Blowout actually improves the condition of the hair by creating a protective protein layer around the hair shaft to eliminate frizz and smooth the cuticle.”
