Hair loss may be caused by a multitude of reasons, some of the things that interfere with the cycle of hair growth – like medication, illness, infection, or chemicals – have the potential to stop hair from being formed properly. Although hair loss seems to be a more prominent problem for men, women are nearly as likely to lose or have thinning hair.
For those who don’t plan on counting their hair every day, there are ways to know when hair is thinning or being lost at a higher rate. When waking up in the morning, there may be a usually large amount on your pillow. When you comb your hair (without yanking and tugging), more than normal will be left in the comb. So how do we fix it?? The best way to nip the problem in the bud is to understand the underlying causes!
What’s the difference between warm colored hair and brassy hair?
Most of the time, when a color client sits in the chair, the first words out of their mouth are “I don’t want to see red.” In a lot of cases, this statement is incorrect. They don’t want to see brass, but do want warm colored hair.
Brassy hair is due to underlying pigment being exposed. Brass is not a color. It is what happens when the hair is not processed long enough during a lifting service. There is a big difference between this kind of “red” and a purposeful, beautiful, shiny copper/ gold color.
Warm hair is beautiful! It reflects light, making the hair appear very healthy and shiny. More often than not, warm hair is the right choice for peoples skin tones. Copper/ gold hues make the skin look healthy and glowy. There is a wide range of colors, light/dark, dimensional/ solid, etc, that support warmth and work for each individual.
Bored of the haircut you’ve been rocking all summer long? Change it up with a heavy face framing layer! Boredom doesn’t mean you hate it or want a major change, so doing this could be all you need to feel fresh for fall.
The summer trend was an angled cut, shorter in the back longer in the front, without much layering. You can keep the bones of that cut and then spice it up a bit by framing your face with a nice thick, choppy, chin (or above) length frame. This makes styling your hair so much fun and versatile as well. Whether straight or wavy, down or up, you’ll have new pieces to play with, which will create tons of new looks!
Now that Fall is approaching, (although, in LA do we really ever have Fall?) hair color tones will be shifting a bit. Yes, Fall is known for pumpkin spiced lattes and all things fall colors, however, your hair does not need to make a drastic change to match up with these trends. Fall is about transitioning from bikinis to sweaters — so, just a slight “transition” can make a big difference as far as hair color goes. You still want to feel like you, right?
Here are some Fall-Inspo tips, to give you the perfect amount of “change” you’re looking for. 😉
Do you struggle with frizzy hair? Do you feel that no matter what products you put in your hair - it’s still not enough to tame the mane? Depending on your hair type, lifestyle and routine, a regular blowout can last up to a week. But for those that need your blowouts to last a bittt longer, we may have a solution!
Many times, we get inquires from clients asking to schedule for highlights, when what they really want is balayage — or vice versa. Everyone talks terms — no one talks education or the differences within the options.
Highlights: A lifting technique used to lighten the hair by applying the color from the root by weaving, leaving every other section out. Highlights can create bright blondes, or a more natural look with highlights and lowlights.
This summer, we’re going towards a less-is-more approach. Rather than doing full glam, why not create your own natural glow? With these beauty essentials, you’ll get there in no time.
BODY SCRUB: Invigorating Jasmine-Mimosa Body Scrub Rather than being a sugar based body scrub, this gem is solely composed of Walnut Shell Powder (acts as a dullness remover). The texture of the product is a fluffier substance compared to the usual body scrub—but by its aloe vera (not oil) & coconut derived properties, this scrub will leave you feeling refreshed & cleansed. Oh, & the best part, because it is not oil based, this will leave no residue whatsoever—allowing your skin to glow on its own throughout the day!
I’m sure it’s obvious and probably the most talked about topic of Los Angeles. We always seem to find ourselves talking about sunscreen while sipping our lattes. But WHY is it so crucial? What are some fun facts?
