Settling you up for the Year Ahead

Saturday, 23 January 2016 12:16:24 Europe/London

If you're constantly coveting perfect hair turn away from all those pricey fad treatments that do more to drain your wallet than treat your strands. And instead, pick up some daily habits that will actually make a difference. We asked top stylists to spill their secrets on things women with fantastic hair do daily, and here's their list — all of which you can do from the comfort of your own home.

1. She avoids heat styling as much as possible.

But let's be honest, you have to use them sometimes. Michael Dueñas, celebrity hairstylist and founder of Hair Room Service, recommends steam rollers, which are gentle on the hair and do not get overly warm, as they're heated solely by steam passing through the foam on the roller. But if you absolutely have to use hot tools (blow dryers, curling irons, wands, flat irons, hot rollers) to style your hair, always use a spray-in heat protectant, says Eve Galminche, Arrojo top colorist.

2. She always sleeps on silk.

Silk's smooth texture won't rough up your hair cuticle when you sleep the way cotton does, leaving you with smoother hair in return, explains Suave Professionals celebrity stylist Marcus Francis. Fewer frizzy strands in the morning? Now that's the dream (no pun intended).

3. She keeps her hair clean.

We're sure you've heard a lot about the No-Poo movement (basically not shampooing your hair to preserve your natural oils), but basically listen to your hair. "As long as women are using quality products, they can benefit from more frequent washing, "It reduces split ends, provides great moisture, and gives hair an overall clean and shiny look."

Not sure how often to lather up?

Wash daily if you live in a city with pollution or humidity, or work out daily. Wash every few days if you live in a rural environment away from pollutants, or an especially dry climate. And if your hair is normal or combination, with dry ends and oily roots, you should split the difference and wash every other day.

 

4. She doesn't skimp on moisturizer.

The skin that makes up your scalp needs moisture just like the skin on your face does, especially if it's going to provide a healthy foundation for hair to grow, A general rule of thumb is to condition every time you shampoo.

But the moisturizing doesn't end once you leave the shower. Even if you're not heat-styling your hair, you should comb through a protective product, It can reduce frizz, dryness, and split ends, and even protect your color!

5. She stays loyal.

It's a common misconception that switching up your hair care brands keeps your hair healthier because it never gets time to adapt, but experts disagree. Instead, they suggest finding what works for you and sticking with it. Remember: Your hair doesn't know the difference. And while it's perfectly fine to change things up when searching for that perfect combination that leaves you with killer strands — once you find it, don't let it go.

6. She eats the right foods.

For all the attention we pay to the hair follicle once it leaves the scalp, half the battle for beautiful hair is already lost (or won) by what you're putting in your body every day.  What you eat plays a huge role in gloss, growth, and volume.

A diet rich in iron, zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids, and protein will help stimulate your hair follicles for growth.

7. She takes her vitamins.

Even if your diet is impeccable, it's possible you're missing out on some crucial hair-boosting vitamins. Not sure if you need them? The answer is in how healthy (or not-so-healthy) your skin and nails look. For example, if your fingernails are ridging and/or if you have dry, flaky skin, chances are your hair is crying out for help, too. But that's easy to reverse: Once you start taking the right combo of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and herbs, you can get fuller, shinier, and stronger hair in just a few months. Bonus: Your nails and skin will also benefit.

8. She limits her time in the sun.

You see the damage that a day without sun protection does to your skin, but even though your hair suffers just as much, it can be harder to tell. To prevent sun damage,  apply a leave-in conditioner at least every other day. Careful application from mid-shaft to the ends of hair can combat damage from the summer big three — UV rays, wind, and saltwater.

And if you're headed to the beach where the heat will be coming at you from all directions, spritz a generous application of heat protectant with SPF onto damp hair before going out, followed by a reapplication after swims — same as you would do for your skin.

9. She steers clear of snarls.

Before you go ripping a comb through your strands, think about what you're doing — and be gentle. Use a wide-toothed comb for particularly tangled locks, and always brush your hair from bottom to top to avoid creating more knots and snarls.

10. She gets regular trims — even when growing out her hair.

You might be tempted to skip seasonal trims when growing out your hair, but to add healthy length, you actually need to do just the opposite. Stand firm that ahaircut every six to eight weeks is necessary to prevent split ends from forming as the hair cuticle splits.

"When the split goes up the hair shaft, it becomes so thin that it breaks — that's when people get breakage." And once your hair splits, there's no way to repair it, so keep it trimmed to prevent harmful breakage before it starts.

11. She keeps it cool in the shower.

When you're washing your hair, you don't want the water too hot. 

Excess heat can blast the volume out of your hair, leaving you with limp locks. Instead, opt for warm water — this temperature allows you to work up a nice lather while still staying hot enough to rinse suds clean. And when it comes to the final post-conditioner rinse, the colder the better. Chilly water locks in those coveted nutrients into each strand, adding a beautiful, healthy luster.

12. She knows the right amount of product to use — and where to use it.

If you cover your entire head when you shampoo or conditioner, you're doing it wrong! Concentrate the shampoo on the first few inches of hair at the scalp, where you get the most oil and product buildup — your ends don't need cleansing as much. As for conditioner, work it in from the mid-shaft to the ends where the hair is driest and prone to split ends.

Dont let the cold weather put you off

Get this great look from a very easy way.

Firstly wash and give your hair a really good treatment. I tend to use KMS repair conditioner on my hair and leave for about 20 minutes. This helps give the hair a lift and will help tired and dry hair.

Once washed out dry the hair upside down working the hair all the time. For long hair I would suggest a medium size brush like the 33mm, 43mm or for big hair the 53mm to 65mm.

By working the hair you are giving the hair volume to get this look.

Finish off with a good hair spray and vo la.

The look that will turn heads

Hi guys 

Happy New Year to everyone. Its that time of the year when you are hiding away under a wholly hat and probably

suffering from colds and dry hair. Well dont be down. Get yourself into a spa, hairdresser and give your self that well deserved winter lift. 

Make sure you condition and moisturise your hair on a regular basis. 

Get a good hair cut and treat yourself to a new hair brush. Its amazing what all of these factors can do to a person. If you feel good on the inside then thats half the battle.

Super Soft Curls

Saturday, 27 September 2014 15:37:44 Europe/London

 

 

Todays look we are going to create is something that has been seen on celebs such as Taylor Swift, Amanda Seyfried and Miranda Kerr. The super soft side waves is a classic. The reason it works so well is that it is  a really romantic hairstyle so you can wear it on a date, for dinner or at the beach.

It can be dressed up or dressed down but it will always look amazing and it wont let you down.

 

GET THE LOOK

1. Start by curling the hari with straighteners or tongs, which you prefer is fine!

If you find that your hair is too curly dont panic use the Wilhelmina Medium brush which will loosen the curl but not let it go completely frizzy.

2. Once the hair is curled you can use one of our troubadour combs and create a deep side parting at your preferred side.

3. Bring the hair around to your preferred side ad secure it with boby pins at the nape of the neck.

4. Finish with hairspray and voi la. The look everyone will love x
