Hair Trends Spring / Summer 2013

Posted by on Dec 17, 2012 in Blog | Comments Off on Hair Trends Spring / Summer 2013

Most runway hairstyles we see rarely translate to wearable looks in our busy day to day lives. However, this is not the case for Hair Trends in Spring / Summer 2013. While most anticipate a vast change in hair styles every time seasons change, this coming season, there won’t be much change at all from hair styles in 2012. 1. Side Part Hairstyles – Something we all should be very thankful for as most women do really have a natural side part. It’s such a no-brainer that you actually wear everyday and just don’t notice it. The best thing about it is its very versatile. It doesn’t choose hair length or hair color. Plus, there are plenty of ways to wear them next season: a. Deep Side Parts – What’s the difference? It’s a side part that’s closer to your ear than it is the top of your head. b. Soft Side Parts – A very casual and relaxed side part that you usually wear on a daily basis. c. Voluminous Side Parts – A side part with added volume. Use a volume spray and a hair dryer to achieve the desired proportion. d. Across Your Forehead – A side part that serves as fringe or bangs. 2. Knots and Braids – For a very clean and put-together look, knots and braids are still the way to go. 3. Ponytails – The ever so easy to do ponytail never goes out of style. It is so reliable when one does not have time to achieve a certain look but still look put-together. One can find solace in a ponytail when you have run out of ideas for hairstyles. The modern twist on a ponytail sits low at just above the nape and is super straight to give definition to the length of hair. It’s chic, sleek and sexy. 4. Wet Look – It’s not about looking drenched but more of a glossed over look. A modern take on this look is incorporating braids and twists into the whole look 5. Loose Waves – Women with wavy hair can look forward to the coming season as you can head out the door straight out of bed. Literally. 6. Updos – Classic chignons never ever go out of style and this recurring trend is a testament to that. A modern twist to this look is making it look “undone”. So, yes, they do not have to be perfect. Again, something to be thankful for. 7. Hair Accessories – Experiment and go crazy with different accessories. No time to do your hair? Accessories can do the trick. 8. Half Tuck Hairstyle – You may wonder how this can be a hair trend in itself because it is so simple. Tuck your hair behind your ear and leave some loose strands. Need I say more? 9. Platinum Blond Hair Color – Dare to pull this off? It’s in next season. 10. Fringe or Bangs – Just like the ponytail and updos, fringe or bangs never ever go out of style. Modernize this look by sporting a messy fringe for a grungy...

Maintenance for Weft Extension

Posted by on Nov 22, 2012 in Blog | Comments Off on Maintenance for Weft Extension

Weft Extensions Weft Extensions are hair extensions that come usually come in a large width depending on preference and can be sewn in, weaved, bonded, taped on or clipped on. It’s a great way to add volume to hair as well as length or even to achieve the perfect color. They come in fourteen to thirty two inch lengths and can be Remy or non-Remy hair. Weft Hair Extensions have the potential to last if cared for properly. Weft Extensions Tips Be gentle when you handle them. Remember these are not your hair and do not have the capability to grow back. Use a soft bristle brush and hold your hair at the roots when brushing especially when dealing with wet hair as wet hair easily breaks. Untangle first with your hands before using a brush. Always condition. Just like your skin, hair extensions can lose its moisture rather quickly as it does not get any nutrients. So avoid products that may cause the hair to dry. Always get them trimmed as they are prone to split ends so make sure you regularly make that trip to the salon. If possible, do not use heat styling tools. Avoid washing your hair too often as this can also result to dry hair. When combing or brushing hair, start at the ends where it most likely gets tangled and work your way up. Minimize the use of styling products such as hair spray, gel or mousse. These contain chemicals that can affect the longevity of your hair extensions. Before heading to bed, it is best to arrange your hair into a loose braid to avoid tangling while sleeping then undo the braid once you are up. Lastly, avoid activities that can damage hair such as swimming as chlorine can dry out your extensions as well as long exposure to the sun.

All You Need To Know About Hair Extensions

Posted by on Oct 8, 2012 in Blog | Comments Off on All You Need To Know About Hair Extensions

Hair Extensions Yes, we have heard a lot about hair extensions but do you know that it is also called artificial hair integrations? It is how one can lengthen hair without having to wait for weeks or months to reach the desired length. Natural or Real hair can be used and one appointment is all that is needed for the preferred results. Synthetic vs. Human Hair Most people who want to try getting hair extensions wonder which type of hair weft is best suited for them. Here is a run down. Synthetic hair, made from synthetic fibers does not last as long as human hair does due to being easily damaged by friction and heat. Although, it is a lot less expensive than human hair, there are limitations as to what one can do with it. It does not look like human hair at all and cannot be used with tools that we usually use on our real hair such as curling irons and straightening irons. However, there have been more developments of this type of weft that looks more similar to that of human hair and can be used with styling tools. Human hair extensions are more expensive, last longer and are natural looking. This, however, all depends on how much you spend. The more expensive hair, human hair extensions are, the better quality you get. Human hair is also easy to care for as you treat it just like your own hair. Preference all really depends on what you can manage, how much you can spend and factors such as the length of time you would like to use them. Choosing Color, Texture and Quality When choosing hair color, note that the standard scale to classify the hair by color is when the number is lower; the color is darker while the highest number is the lightest color. Textures of hair differ from very straight to extremely curly, or kinky and it is no different with artificial hair. Some would be labeled silky straight that pertains to the characteristics of East Asian hair that is soft and very straight. Yaki pertains to the feel of straightened Afro-Caribbean hair characteristics. European refers to, yes, European hair which is a tad less straight than Asian hair and may have a little wave. A deep wave is not really a real wave but can be created to look like twirls. The loose deep wave, also known as the romance wave is the softer version of the deep wave with more relaxed curls. The jheri curl which can also be referred to as “nappy tracks” are usually used for a full afro look and can be quite short. Wet and wavy that can have the labeled spanish wave or indian wave are curls of human hair that look soft and natural. The quality of the hair is often specified as virgin hair when the hair has not been processed at all, remy is human hair that organized meticulously in one weft which makes it remain shiny and tangle free for a fairly long time. Double drawn is when hair bundle is processed twice meaning, the hair is even all throughout. Its thickness at one end will be more or less the same as the other. This can be very expensive though....

Summer Hair Secrets

Posted by on Jul 20, 2012 in Blog | Comments Off on Summer Hair Secrets

Summer is an extremely enjoyable time of the year and also the most awaited but it is also the season where our hair is damaged the most.  This is the time that our tresses become unmanageable, frizzy and dry because of too much exposure to the sun.  Learn how to protect your crowning glory with these summer hair secrets. Give your hair a break from styling tools or potentially damaging products. The least you want to do is add more damage to your hair. It is time to go “au naturel”. Since this is the time your hair is at its driest, make sure to drink lots of fluid. This also helps keep your skin hydrated. Water therapy is always the best. To achieve sexy waves this season, apply a quarter size conditioner and a soft holding curling gel with the same amount on wet hair. Brush your hair to distribute the product evenly and twist hair into a bun. Sleep on it. Remove the bun in the morning, flip your head over and massage your crown with your fingers. If you really have a hard time managing your hair this summer and simply have no time to before heading off, it is wise to fashion an updo. Any bun, ponytail or braid will do the job. These classic looks never go out of style. We love messy updos. Get a deep conditioning treatment regularly during this time of the year. The more often your tresses are conditioned, the better and healthier for your hair. Get your free deep conditioning treatment here. When your hair is wet from swimming or if you just stepped out of the shower, avoid damaging your hair by using a wide tooth comb. Always rinse hair with cold water to avoid frizz and to lock in shine. Cold water helps make hair more manageable. Rinse your hair under a shower before a dip in the pool or ocean. Dry hair tends to absorb more salt or chlorine compared to wet hair. Massage sesame oil at the ends of your hair to avoid sun damage. Wear a hat, a bandana or a scarf to protect your hair. Being scorched directly under the sun is never good for your hair or skin. Lastly, get a regular hair cut religiously. Products do not have the power to mend split ends, they need to be trimmed. If you are not a hair stylist, leave the cutting, trimming, shaping to the...
