Static cray cray hair!

Ok so my hair is looking pretty cray cray right now.

I’ve spend ages blowdrying my hair and as soon as I step outside and get a droplet of water on it, it goes completely frizzy!!!  So a beanie goes a long way… Not only keeps my head warm but hides frizzy hair..  But then I have static hair..  You know those bits of hair that just tend to stand upright..and just look wild! 🙂

Dry, cold air often leads to statically electric hair. Whether it’s from brushing your hair after you blow-dry (don’t do it!) or your Winter hat, there are ways to fight this less-than-flattering hair dilemma, and they (almost) all have to do with hydrating to your hair.

Here are a few simple tips for eliminating static.

Hair treatments: Dry hair and dry Winter air are the perfect combination to create statically charged strands, so the added moisture will help stop the electric charge.
Add a mask to your hair routine.  If you have time leave it in for about 15 – 20 minutes.
This will add that moisture back to your hair that the cold dry winter has taken out.  Not only does your skin dry out in winter.. so does your hair!

Shampoo: Don’t do it so often. There are lot’s of reasons why not to shampoo your hair so often but skipping a shampoo can help prevent your hair from getting dried out, which leads to static and a lackluster mane — talk about a double whammy.

Leave in treatment or shine oil: Another way to add some moisture is to use a leave in treatment.  My absolute favorite is Sebastian Potion9.  This product is amazeballs. Its not cheap but its so worth it.  Not only does it act as a leave in treatment is has a slight hold to it and makes it really easy to style with.  Once you have dried your hair use a shine oil to smooth it out.

Don’t Brush!: The friction from your brush will lead to charged particles that cause static electricity.  In fact I never brush my hair…It just turns into a frizz ball.  However best brush to use is the Angel brush, especially made for antic static and de-tangling hair.

Keratin: Now this is the B all and end all of all treatments!  Its a de-frizzing treatment not straightening.  Keratin naturally occurs in your hair.. So you are just putting back in that is naturally there!  Read here to find out more about the Brazilian keratin we do at Esstudio.

A soft pastel copper tone great for blondes who just want a change and it will only last a few weeks.

Bridal Beauty Part 2

So your skin is glowing, you have the flawless complexion down pat now lets talk about your Bridal do’!

wedding-bridal-photography-09

First DO NOT under any circumstances ditch your usual 6 week visit to your stylist for your trim. DO NOT DO THIS! Because you know what will happen, your ends will get so ratty and brittle and split and a week before your wedding when you finally come in to have a “trim” before your big day,  we will have to chop 3 inches off your hair that you have been growing for 6 months. Yep that’s what we will have to do !

So continue your 6 weekly visits and its time to play with some colour options. Its all about playing until we get the perfect colour for your day. Maybe you like it lighter or darker or more natural looking highlights. Talk to your stylist about what vision you have of yourself walking down the aisle and then we can make a plan of how to achieve your vision of beauty!  There is also an option for clip in hair extensions for extra length and thickness.
We use really good quality REAL hair.  These can look absolutely fab.. and then you can keep them for ever if you look after them well.  Aleks at Esstudio will hand sew these for you.

sad-girl-flat-hair

Thats me!! seriously I have like cob webs on my head.. I’ll let you in on a few secrets I have up my sleeve to  show that limp hair of yours a thing or two!

Ok look, yes yes we all want soft shinny hair, but if you have fine hair, soft and shinny actually means floppy, flat non co operative waste of time hair! am i right?! Right!

So here are your options fellow limp ladies…..

Add some texture into your hair with colour.
Adding pieces of colour into fine hair to add texture with a contrasting colour can really lift and give the illusion of more voluptuous hair.
Let me enlighten you with some visual options:

short hair for fine hair = thicker fuller hair.

Now styling, forget that myth where you can’t wash your hair too much, flip that myth the bird!! Why you ask ?! Cause its your god dam hair that’s why!
Wash it as much as you like! I wash my hair every day! Why again you ask? Cause its fine and limp!! and i can’t re create what I did the day before because after I have slept on it, its so flat and in-cooperative it makes me want to cry!
So what do i do , I wash it and blast dry it every day to add extra body and volume and that’s how I tell my hair who is boss!

Tips on how to style that super fine hair are as follows:
Blowy dry blow-dry blow-dry- you have to get air and body into the few and far strands  you have so it bounces and builds!
Before blow drying I looooooooooove Mouse!! Especially mouse that gives body and hold but doesn’t make it stiff and sticky- I really love the (Sebastian whipped creme) not only does it work, but it smells amazing and is so pretty when you squeeze it into your hand it actually does look like whipped cream, it really does look good enough to eat!
You can then add a few waves or kinks in your locks with wands, straighteners etc whatever you have to give movement
Then to finish, powder. yes that’s right i said powder! I am so obsessed with this stuff I would line up to buy it like a 12 year old girl lining up for tickets to see one direction! That obsessed!!!
(the rock star powder lightest hold and Alfaparf VintageE for a Stronger hold)

These powders add texture and grit with hold but moveable hold and that look of sex hair (not bed hair but sexy sex hair) with a mix of “my hair is so great I just woke up like this’
Make sure you ask your stylist about the powder!!
