Big Hair, Big Personality

“The bigger the hair the smaller the hips”… just one of the many lessons Fran Drescher taught us in her show “The Nanny”. Ever since I have become a hairdresser, I noticed that big hair is the trend. Just like leggings and ballet slippers big hair is making it’s come back. I guess my mom was right, trends do repeat themselves.

One of the most frequently asked questions I get is “how can I make my hair bigger”? I know how hard it can be to make your hair bigger when it just doesn’t want to cooperate. That’s when you need to crank out Clairol Professional PRO4 PLEX Volumizing Mousse. With an extra strong hold to keep your style intact all day, PRO4PLEX mousse is also safe to use on color treated hair as well as not leaving your hair feeling sticky or greasy.

So when you need a little volume boost, grab your Clariol Professional PRO4PLEX to give you a long lasting all day hold and get the height you desire. Just be sure to take your heels off when going through a door so you don’t hit your head. 🙂

Be sure to visit www.clairolpro.com and see just what Clariol products can do for you.

It’s All About Silk

Curls can be fun and sexy, but to get them that way seems impossible. With all the gel, mousse, and hairspray it takes more time to do your hair then it does to make breakfast.  If you could get that same sexy look with just one product you would do it right? I knew you would.

BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray can give you those fun, sexy just got off the beach curls.  Made with natural silk, vitamins, herbs, and texturizing salts BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray creates curls to look natural and adds just the right amount of volume.  I mean come on right? What curly hair babe wants flat, stuck to the head, curls.

When I started using BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray, I noticed a change in my curls from the first use.  There was a lot less frizz and the look of dryness. BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray gave them a “new life” and they seem very happy.

So throw away all that unnecessary product and go for the one that does it all, BIOSILK Beach Texture Spray and give your curls new life.

Vist www.BIOSILK.com and see it for yourself.

UV Protection for the Hair

 

Ever since I was little I have always had a bad luck with the sun.  With my fair skin and freckles I would load up on sunscreen, LITERALLY.   I swear my mom would put the whole container on go me and now that I am older I rarely go out into the sun. Of course when I do I still load up on the sunscreen.

Now being a hairdresser I have realized that skin is not the only part of our body that needs protection.  Believe it or not our hair (colored or not) can get the same effect from the sun.  It may not get sunburned but it can change color from the UV rays and if it’s colored, the hair color can fade.

Now we don’t have to worry about that anymore with Paul Mitchell’s new UV Color Protection spray mist.  With just a few sprays all over your hair, the mist will give your hair 24 hour protection in even the hottest sun.

Having colored my hair red (the hardest color to keep) everyone has told me that with time it will fade from sun exposure and from washing it.  Paul Mitchell is 9 step ahead of you when it comes to your hair and the sun.  Sun Recovery Shampoo  and Hair Masque to protect and prolong your gorgeous color.  So no more haircolor fading or sun damaged hair.

With all things Paul Mitchell go to

Glamourize in your Sleep

Beauty rest!  I know you have heard that getting a good night’s sleep is essential for your overall general health. What if I told you that one simple little thing on your bed could cause wrinkles and ratted up hair? You would think I was crazy wouldn’t you?  Well, yes I will admit that, but I am serious.  Your cotton pillow case can hold debris in it’s fibers and that nasty debris can get in your pores causing wrinkles, acne etc.

With Morning Glamour Silk Pillow Case you can get that great night’s sleep both inside and out.  The silkiness of the pillow case can give you a smooth  feel and make you feel all refreshed and relaxed in the morning.  Morning Glamour even helps protect your hair from becoming a knotted mess.  I can remember my mom bought me a silk pillow case when I was younger for a wedding I was going to. I had my hair done in french braids and in order to keep my hair from getting frizzy I used the silk pillow case and it really helped.

I suggest using Morning Glamour not just as a “must” but as a “want”.  After having experienced the feeling of Morning Glamour  silk pillow case I suggest you get one yourself.

Bigger is Better

“The bigger the hair the smaller the hips”- Fran Drescher (As Fran Fine “The Nanny”)

When I was younger the show, next to “I Love Lucy”, was “The Nanny”.  I thought everything about her was just so funny, but the one thing I always remembered was her hair.  In many episodes you would see Fran rolling, and backcombing, and hairspraying the dickens out of her hair to give it that big poofy “bubble” in the front.

I have found that nowadays the big “poof” is coming back (Sorry Snooki, Fran beat you to it).  Instead of doing all that rolling and spraying and backcombing, what if I told you that all you needed was two products.  I’m talking about BORGHESE Volumizing Gel and BORGHESE Thickening Cream.  BORGHESE Volumizing Gel is designed to give your hair the sexy volume we all want while the BORGHESE Thickening Cream is designed to make you hair look fuller without hair pieces.

My mom is an awesome example of someone whose hair is lifeless and thin (not to thin though, sorry mom).  When she uses her BORGHESE Thickening Cream I swear it looks like she put a curling iron in it.

So next time you are watching Fran do what it is she does to her “poof” remember one word BORGHESE and turn hours into minutes.

Professional Style at Home

You spent all that time flat ironing your hair and now you have little bits of frizz coming out.  You keep asking yourself how can I get rid of this?  The answer is simple.  You need John Frieda’s FRIZZ-EASE 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Straightening Spray and Heat Protectant.

It is true that girls with straight hair want curly and curly haired girls want straight.  I was one of those curly girls who would spend hours flat ironing her hair to get it nice and straight. My only problem I had was the humidity in this hot Florida weather. It was causing my hair to frizz up and feel stringy.  Now I have learned to like my curls so I only use a flat iron on my bangs to give them a straight sleek look. A couple sprays of 3-Day Straight and one swipe on each section with my flat iron, my bangs are soft, smooth and frizz free.

Right after you towel dry your hair spritz 3-Day Straight all through the parts you want to flat iron and you can either let it dry naturally or you can take your hairdryer and a brush to it to help it with the straightening process.  For extremely curly hair use a brush to help aid you in the process.

So the time spent to flat iron your hair will not be wasted with John Freida’s 3 -Day Straight.  Give your hair some loving too.

Turn up the Volume

Many women notice that when they get older their hair tends to thin out and cause balding.  Balding is not only caused by age, it can be caused by having had cancer, constant pulling of the hair and even childbirth.  As a hairstylist I get asked the question “How can I make my hair grow”?  Even though I don’t have the answer for making hair grow naturally, I can make you look like your hair grew in.

Evolve Volumizer has made many women across the United States regain their confidence in their appearances.  Evolve comes in a large supply of colors and textures, to give you a customized look. Once your color and texture have been selected and ordered ,the certified stylist can place Evolve wherever it needs to be on the scalp and then start the process off applying it to your own hair. Once Evolve has been attached and put in place, the stylist then can pull your own hair through little holes on the piece to blend the hairpiece with your hair to make it look more natural. It is made with 100% human hair so once it’s in place, Evolve then can be washed and styled like you would everyday.

I always feel sorry for women who don’t have the hair they want, but now there is hope.  Check out www.evolvinghair.com and see for yourself just what Evolve Volumizer can do for you.

Ditch The Frizz, Love the Shine

One of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to my hair is frizz. No doubt about that. I have natural curls and it seems no matter how much hairspray I put in it or any other hair product, it still looks like it came out of the 80s. It wasn’t until recently that I just wanted to give up on ever getting rid of my frizz. When I first used Brazillian Blowout’s Acai Smoothing Serum I couldn’t believe my eyes. While my hair was still wet and before I put any product in it such as hairspray or gel, I smoothed the smoothing serum through from roots to ends. Then I combed my hair with a wide toothed comb to make sure it was fully saturated.

Being a hairdresser, I wanted to test the product just by itself so I could see what it does. I let my hair dry natural, without any hairspray or gel and didn’t even diffuse my hair. After it dried I used the Brazillian Blowout shine mist to give it shine and it looked like I had spent alot of time doing my hair.

So if you have frizz and you can’t seem to get rid of try Brazillian Blowout’s finishing acai smoothing serum and shine mist and get rid of the frizz.
