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.

 

Hope this helps chicks.

Copper Hair?

The latest colour trend at the moment is copper! It’s sexy striking and can be bold. Whether it a punchy copper, a soft natural or a pastel copper. We can always tailor a copper to suit you. The great thing about copper hair is that you can always play around with the tones.  We’ve got a couple of Copper/red heads roaming around esstudio.
Check out our Instagram you may catch a glimpse of one or two 🙂

 

Here’s Miss Lana looking “Hot” with natural copper hair with a little bit of depth.

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.

Bridal Beauty Part 1

So you got the rock, firstly yay! (insert squeal here!) secondly where the heck do we start!?

modern-photographics

Bridal beauty has to be sectioned into 2 parts- hair and beauty. Why? Cause its a mammoth of a job!! But totally fun in the lead up to your big day!

Never again will you be able to get away with “what? (my future to be husband that put a ring on my finger so your basically stuck now) I need to have a facial every second week to get my skin glowing for our magical day where we say I do” or
“what? (my adoring future husband that knows a happy wife equals a happy life) I need to see my hairdresser every two weeks in lead up to our special so my locks are looking silky and smooth and in perfect condition for my perfect up do”

All jokes aside, your hair and beauty regime should be ramped up to the lead up of “The Day”

Firstly Skin:  The point is to get your skin in as good shape as possible so your makeup looks fantastic, stays in place, behaves as it should, and you need less of it. And even the most close up shots of you, hours into the event, are lovely.

So here is what we recommend, A fortnightly facial: we have many different facials at Esstudio to suit time and budgets.   This will feed your skin with nutrients and get it healthy.
IPL treatments.. If you can afford these they are the gold!  Its advisable to have at least 3 treatments at 3 week intervals.. IPL removes sun damage and pigmentation, refines pores and stimulates collagen and elastin.  You skin will be like a baby’s bum!
Call us for a free skin consult.
Now the work doesn’t just stop in the salon, it is advised to continue at home..
La Clinicas GlyC range will get your skin looking fabulous for your wedding.

stem

At least six weeks before, use a powerful, do-it-all, rejuvenating serum each night under a hydrating cream, Jax recommends La Clinica’s Caviar and Peral serum from their firming lift range, get a thorough exfoliation (this might mean a few peels (Esstudio’s GlyC miroderm facials will do the trick) and skin-boosting nourishment from traditional facials in the final month.

And lets not forget your brows, lash extensions and  paws and claws! All things that can be up kept at Esstudio.
