What’s The Best Flat Iron For Curly Hair?

Like every woman on the planet, sometimes you want a different look. For curly hair, that usually means either a wavy or straight look.

 

Because your locks are drier than other hair types, curly hair is more prone to breakage, split ends, and the dreaded frizz, which makes taming it with a flat iron tricky.

 

That’s why we recommend a good quality ceramic flat iron. These irons produce a gentle moist heat perfect for curly textured hair. Ceramic flat irons seal the hair cuticles for the healthiest flat iron styling.

 

Cheap flat iron models will not give your hair sleekness or shine because they do not have the most advanced technology or high quality heating elements. So don’t buy them; you will only ruin your hair!

 

To effectively penetrate the hair shaft and smooth out your hair you’ll want to use a high temperature. Talk to your stylist about the best temperature for your hair texture. The last thing you want to do is over do it and fry those fragile tresses!

 

With a high quality ceramic flat iron, you can quickly get a polished, sleek, straight look without frizz or damage. Not sure what brand is best? Ask us!

 

We have an investment in your healthy hair, too! (

How To Get The Right Hairstyle For Your Facial Shape By Hair Salon Bowral, Call Us On 02 4861 1120

How To Get The Right Hairstyle For Your Facial Shape

“I really like her look,” the woman said, pointing to a picture of Katie Holmes’s 2008 bob. “Can I do that?”

A good stylist will listen carefully to that question, look at your face and run his or her fingers through your hair.

You might call it our way of processing the question. To get a great cut that’s also the right look, a stylist has two considerations right off:

  • Your face shape
  • The texture of your hair

A beautifully cut head of hair is still a disaster if it does not work with your natural features!

The rule of thumb in balancing any facial shape is to try to achieve an oval shape, which is the most pleasing to the human eye.

Our passion is putting the perfect frame around your face to balance and bring out your best features. That means long faces need shortening, wide faces need lengthening and so on.

Then there is the texture of your hair. Is it coarse? Fine? Medium? Wiry? Or is it thin? Thick? Curly? Or straight? These are all critical factors in giving you the perfect cut and style for your face and your lifestyle.

Most importantly, as much as we all love fashion, don’t let it dominate your choice of hairstyles. Keira Knightley certainly hasn’t.  She took a bold step from long, sleek hair to a short 1920’s bob!

There are so many great styles. We have no doubt that there is a look that was made just for you!

How Do Kids Get Head Lice?

How Do Kids Get Head Lice?

How Do Kids Get Head Lice?

When you hear the words head lice, you immediately think of how gross it is and moving as far away from the person infected as possible.

But the truth is head lice are not a result of unsanitary conditions or skipping showers.

Head lice can happen to anyone because it’s transferred directly head-to-head. Most head lice infestations happen with kids between the ages of 3-11 years old. And oddly, more girls than boys contract it.

The initial symptom of head lice is constant head scratching. Examine the hair for lice activity. Check around the ears and the neck. You may find a rash and red bites.

Kids at this age hug more, and they put their heads together to share secrets or to look at the same book. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with your children being social.

However, they do need to know that there are some things they don’t share, like a comb, brush, hats or scarves. And when sleeping over at a friend’s house, it’s important that they only use their own pillow and their own sleeping bag.

As a precautionary measure, when your child returns home, put the sleeping bag and pillow in the dryer for 30 minutes. This will kill any possible lice.

It’s also important to know that pets can’t give your kids head lice, and your kids can’t transfer the infestation to them. It’s strictly human-to-human.

In order to get through this, you can use over-the-counter anti-lice shampoo or shampoo prescribed by your pediatrician.

Can You Braid Short Hair?

posted by Lissa Logan

Just because a shorter cut lacks length, it does not mean you are limited to the number of ways you can style your hair.

Lucy Hale showed us that a low ponytail doesn’t have to be so plain. At the back, there was a Mohawk-like braid down the center of her head forming into the low ponytail.

Other braids that can be done to short hair are:

  • Inside Outside Braids
  • Halo Braid
  • Half Up Braids
  • Waterfall Braid
  • French Fringe Braid
  • Braided Updo with Volume
  • And a lot more

A big thanks to Lucy Hale for reminding us how versatile short hair can be.

If want to see what other styles are there for your short do, come by the salon and we’ll be happy to show you.

Can You Hide A Receding Hairline?

Can You Hide A Receding Hairline?

Can You Hide A Receding Hairline?

A receding hairline is common to many men, so you’re not alone. And yes, it can play on one’s insecurities.

So here are some tips to minimize the appearance of a receding hairline or thinning hair.

1. Get a Haircut. A short haircut is almost always a good option.

2. Shave Your Head. With a total lack of hair, nobody will notice you’re losing it in the first place.

3. Get A Hat. Wearing a stylish hat (on either formal or casual occasions) is an easy trick for concealing a receding hairline.

4. Grow it Out. If your hairline is receding, but your hair is otherwise full, you may also consider growing it out a bit and wearing the style loose and shaggy with the bangs forward a bit. This will help conceal the receding part at the front. Just make sure, at all costs, to avoid the comb-over effect.

5. Go Easy on Products. Avoid using too much products that cause the hair to separate and expose scalp. Use just a small amount of a light cream on dry hair.

These are just a few ways men can make the most of thinning hair.

What Commercial Models Aren’t Telling You

What Commercial Models Aren’t Telling You

Models and actresses are getting hundreds of thousands, some even millions even, to advertise brands. The same goes for hair colour.

You’ve seen Eva Longoria, Gwen Stefani, Sarah Jessica Parker, Beyonce and many more promote these products with promises of how gorgeous and shiny your tresses will be from an $8 box of hair colour.

But the question is, do you believe it? Unfortunately, these people were made to say these things.

The truth is box colour strips the life out of your hair and leaves it looking like straw.

With salon colour, you’re investing in custom colour and expertise. We’ve spent thousands of hours studying and learning about hair and colour. Then, we had to pass the state exam to get licensed so we can formulate that colour for your hair.

The companies who sell drug store hair colour design them for the masses. There is no consideration for:

  • The natural colour of a person’s hair and the underlying pigment
  • Skin tone
  • Level of porosity
  • The use of previous artificial pigments
  • Percentage of gray, if any, and how resistant to colouring it may be

And worse, box colour formulations change and the company doesn’t tell you. That means you buy the same colour but get tragically different results. That’s when we hear,

“I don’t know what happened. It’s the same box colour I’ve always used.”

With salon colour, we evaluate the condition of your hair each time you come in. That’s why your formulation may change from time to time. Or, why we recommend a glossing or deep conditioning treatment. We see to your hair’s needs to make it healthy and beautiful.

Just say no to box colour!

The Return Of The Twist

posted by Lissa Logan

 

It’s official. The twist has made a comeback.

But it’s not that stuffy old French twist you’re thinking about. The new hair style has lots of variations to make them interesting and beautiful!

Here are three of them:

Textured Twist- Stylists add texturizing spray to the roots of damp hair to create this look. Nothing boring about it!

Go Messy!  Dishevel a twist by pulling a few hairs out here and there. Then  scatter a few strands around the face to create that beachy look.

Add A Bun- It’s fun to combine two styles together. A chignon coiled on top works well with the French Twist for an unusual and beautiful do.

Want to see other versions of the twist? Come by the salon and we will gladly create it for you!

Overnight Hair Care

Overnight Hair Care

Overnight Hair Care

Before going to bed, you make sure that your skin has all the cremes, solutions, and anti-aging ingredients it needs to become smoother and younger looking.

But what about your hair?

There are several ways you can care for your hair while you sleep. Let’s look at some of them.

Argan Oil
If you have dry or damaged hair, you can apply a nourishing hair treatment before going to bed. Then wrap your head with a silk scarf to make your tresses silky smooth when you wake up. Constant conditioning will give you tresses that are soft to the touch and less tangles to deal with.

Contain Your Hair
Sleeping with your hair down causes knots and tangles with all the tossing and turning you do in bed. And sometimes brushing it out may damage your locks. Pulling your hair into a loose bun won’t tug or add pressure to your scalp while you sleep.

Cut the Heat in Half
If it is necessary that you using heating tools on your hair, you can cut down the time easily. Wash your hair the night before. Then gently using a wide tooth comb to remove tangles. In the morning, your hair will be dryer and softer, which means you won’t have to use the dryer as long, lessening the heat against your hair.

Beat Frizz
Apply a small amount of leave-in conditioner evenly through damp hair, focusing on ends. Run a wide-tooth comb through hair. Then twist into a loose bun prior to going to sleep. In the morning, release your bun and you’ll be left with hair that has frizz-free body and shine.

Make Dry Shampoo Your Friend
If your mane is on the oily side, consider spritzing the grease away by using dry shampoo the night before. Spray about six inches away from the roots and let the product sit for a minute before styling your hair into a topknot. This will create instant volume on waves already created by the high bun and soak up excess oil, all while providing a fresh, clean scent.

Promote Growth
Remember when your grandmother used to brush her hair with 100 strokes before night time? There’s no need to do all that work, especially since that much brushing can cause breakage. Gently stimulate your scalp with your fingertips before bed. This moves blood flow to the scalp, leading to healthy growth patterns and dispersing natural, moisturizing oils throughout your hair.

What Does It Mean When Your Hair Texture Suddenly Changes?

What Does It Mean When Your Hair Texture Suddenly Changes?

Hair does change texture gradually throughout life. Scientists don’t really understand why.

Hair that abruptly grows finer or more brittle could signal hypothyroidism, especially if it’s accompanied by other symptoms. Time to see your doctor!

Scientists do know that hormones have a major effect on hair texture; they are your body’s regulator.

What you eat can also cause your hair texture to change, especially if it’s a sudden shift in diet. Eating foods high in vitamin E and omega fatty acids creates smooth, shiny hair.

On the other hand, a diet low in nutrients, (think fast food) and high in alcohol consumption, causes hair to feel dry and coarse. The reason is simple. Like any other organ in the body, hair needs sufficient nutrition to be healthy.

We can help with the right products and salon treatments to deeply hydrate and nourish your hair. Most importantly, though, find the underlying cause. Our expertise and products will support you as your hair returns to its natural beauty!

She’s Come Undone!

posted by Lissa Logan

Madmen’s Christina Hendricks grew her hair to just past her shoulders with long layers to create a modern shag. With stunning hair color, the cut draws attention to her cheekbones and lips.

But it’s the quality of “undone” that’s really appealing. The long layers create volume and the slight amount of wave accentuates the whole look. Her sideswept bangs work for any face shape.

Want to achieve the same look? We can show you how!
