Every woman wants to be skinny, but it’s the last thing she wants when it comes to hair.
 
So what do you do if Mother Nature didn’t get the message? You fight back, and it all starts with the cut. Without it, nothing else will work well.
 
That’s why we talk to you about your hair texture, what you want to achieve with it, and how your cut will get you the results you want.
 
After the cut, follow our styling instructions and:
 
• Use a volumising shampoo to add thickness
 
• Condition with care, avoiding silicone ingredients that can weigh down your hair and flatten volume. We’ll show you the products that work best
 
• Use light styling products like mousse
 
• Target your roots for lift with a volumizing spray. This will give the appearance of more hair
 
With our expertise combined with the right products and styling, your hair can look full and beautiful!

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair!

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair!

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair! By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
 
We love them, don’t we, those little blue-haired ladies with the big purses?
 
Love them, yes, but we don’t want to look like them!
 
To keep grey locks looking bouncy, sassy and shiny, takes commitment to maintenance. Here’s what we recommend:
 

  • First, talk to your stylist about your specific silver fox needs. If you’re easing out of colour, you’ll need a plan. Opt for highlights or lowlights to help grow out the colour.
  •  

  • Grey hair is wiry, dry and brittle.  And it’s sensitive to the elements! Get regular in salon deep conditioning treatments followed by weekly at home deep conditioning treatments.
  •  

  • To counteract yellow, get a violet – based glossing treatment in the salon every 6-8 weeks.
  •  

  • Use a violet – based shampoo that’s moisturising to calm down the dryness.
  •  

  • Use a clarifying shampoo weekly to remove pollutants and the effects of cigarette smoke (if you’re around any).
  •  
    With the same commitment given to any hair type, you can rock sexy, silver locks! As always, if you have questions, just ask. We’re here to help!

    “What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?”

    “What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?”

     “What Can I Do About My Thinning Hair?” By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    Thinning hair has many causes including side effects of certain medications, illness, stress, over use of cosmetic hair products, and improper hair care.
     
    But the common thread through any of these possibilities is always nutrition. Once you consult a dermatologist to find out what is causing your thinning hair, then it only requires a small amount of effort on your part to correct it.
     
    Healthy hair starts in the kitchen! Make sure you get plenty of omega 3 fatty acids to strengthen and promote hair growth. Fish such as salmon, sardines, cod and mackerel are excellent sources, as well as flax seed.
     
    Healthy hair needs GLA, gamma linoliec acid, to strengthen the hair shaft and keep it thick. Black current oil in capsule form contains plenty of GLA, and it’s widely available.
     
    Another excellent source is coconut oil. Just massage it on your scalp during the week to help combat thinning hair. Taking care of your hair, just like your health, is a commitment. One that pays you back daily!

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle

    When Your Hair Turns Wiry and Brittle By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    As we age, our hair goes through a natural ageing process as well.  The first few significant changes we’re going to notice is that it’s not as shiny as it used to be or that it breaks easily. It’s also a lot drier and coarser.
     
    So what do you do if your hair starts to turn wiry and brittle?
     
    First, find a shampoo that’s specially formulated  for your hair type. Choose one that cleanses hair thoroughly without drying it out.
     
    Next, get regular deep conditioning treatments.  Deep conditioning is essential as it will nourish hair and maintain moisture, reducing dryness and brittleness.
     
    Treat yourself to a regular scalp massage. A scalp massage helps remove product build-up and improves circulation and oil production, improving overall hair health.
     
    It’s also important that you maintain a balanced diet to keep your hair healthy and shiny as you age gracefully.

    Long Hair Care Tips

    Long Hair Care Tips

    Long Hair Care Tips By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120 
     
    As with all hairstyles, long hair does require maintenance to keep it looking lush. Here are some easy tips for rocking your locks.
     

  • Wash it gently! Use a top quality shampoo formulated for your specific type of hair (dry, normal combination, or oily). We can help you there. Scrub the hair on your scalp and massage down to the ends.
  •  

  • Use a top quality conditioner. Pay special attention to the ends of your hair. Press it into the ends, but gently. No rubbing!
  •  

  • Rinse with warm then cool water—not hot. Hot water is damaging, causing it to look frizzy, which makes it difficult to style.
  •  

  • Dry it gently! (Are you sensing a theme here?) Use a soft towel or cotton T-shirt to squeeze out excess moisture. Wrapping you hair in a towel or twisting it on your head can damage it and make it rough.
  •  

  • Use a leave-in conditioner or detangler, especially if your hair is thick and/or curly. These products can keep your hair soft and manageable.
  •  

  • Get trims every 6-8 weeks. This will remove split ends. Excess weight can cause hair to become oily, frizzy or dry!
  •  
    Remember, your lifestyle shows in your long hair! Excessive stress, lack of sleep, smoking, and poor exercise habits make it harder to keep your hair healthy. For head turning looks, take care of your hair both outside and inside!

    Keratin Straightened Hair Home Care

    How To Care For Your Keratin Straightened Hair

    How To Care For Your Keratin Straightened Hair By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    Home care is essential for lengthening the life of your straight, beautiful hair! How long your treatment will last depends on several factors:
     

    • The texture of your hair
    • How often you wash it
    • The number of times the treatment has been applied before

    Here’s a three-step approach to caring for your hair.
     

    • After your treatment, make sure you do not shampoo for at least one day. Avoid getting your hair wet, curled, kinked or styled.
    • Wash your hair less often to extend the life of the treatment. Use only sulfate and sodium chloride-free shampoos and conditioners. We can help you there. Both of these ingredients will strip the keratin from your hair. You definitely don’t want that!
    • If you colour your hair and want to straighten your hair first, wait at least three weeks before applying colour, if you straighten your hair first. However, you can colour your hair first and then immediately get your straightening treatment without damaging your hair.

     

    You’ll know when it’s time to repeat the treatment because your hair will slowly revert, but usually it’s about 10-12 weeks.
     
    Got questions? That’s what we’re here for. Schedule a free consult to learn more about keeping your hair shiny and beautiful every single day!

    Keep Hair Shiny All Year Long

    How To Keep The Shine All Year Long

    How To Keep The Shine All Year Long By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    It’s the same problem all year long: keeping hair shiny. In the summer, it’s the sun, not to mention our constant use of styling tools!
     
    Overexposure dries out those tresses making hair look dull and flat. And the winter?
     
    More of the same, except cold temperatures suck out moisture and make hair harder to manage.
     
    What can you do? As always, we have many choices to suit your busy lifestyle.
     

  • When hair is moisture-starved, styling tools cause even more damage. Apply a heat-protecting product before you blow dry. This will shield your hair with lightweight oils. And, it adds shine!
  •  

  • Deep condition your hair year round! We can’t stress this enough. It will add shine and body to your hair.
  •  

  • Add a finishing product to add more shine and body.
  •  

  •  And, of course, get your hair trimmed regularly to get rid of split ends.
  •  
    Need more tips? Just talk to us. We’re happy to help!

     How To Get Beautiful Curls

    How To Get Beautiful Curls

    How To Get Beautiful Curls By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    If you’re looking for big, bouncy curls or lots of wave Bohemian-style, there is a trick to it.
     
    The first place you start is in the shower! Use a shampoo and conditioner designed to enhance waves.
     
    If your hair is naturally straight, follow with a curling mousse to promote body and wave. If you already have some natural wave or curl, use a styling milk followed by a frizz-fighting serum.
     
    For straight-haired girls, run your fingers through it and move the dryer all around your head—not smoothing it out—but maintaining as much body as possible.
     
    For curlier hair, use a diffuser to bring out as much natural curl as possible.
     
    Choose the curling iron size for the look you want. Divide hair into sections, starting in the back.
     
    Spray each section with a light hold hair spray.
     
    Hold the curling iron vertically (like a ribbon around a stick). Hold for a few seconds and release.
     
    Follow with a light finishing spray to hold waves. For those who already have some natural wave, use a curling iron to smooth out frizzy sections or to enhance those areas that need a bit more wave or curl.
     
    It’s official. You rock curls and style!

    Go Grey Gracefully

    How To Go Grey Gracefully

    How To Go Grey Gracefully By Hair Salon Bowral Call Us On 02 4861 1120
     
    Wondering if you’re ready to go grey? You don’t have to, but if you decide you’re ready, there is a rule of thumb. When your hair is 40% grey then you can stop colouring.
     
    If you’ve previously coloured your hair, there are two ways to transition to your new grey look:
     

    • If you’re willing to have a short haircut, then cut out all the old colour.
    • Or, have your stylist weave in a few lowlights as you grow out the old shade.

     
    The last approach is a subtle way to de-emphasize roots as the grey comes in, and the single colour process goes out.
     
    Remember, grey hair needs special care, too. You definitely don’t want it to look yellow and tired! Talk to us about treatments to keep it and you looking beautiful.
