Summer Heat 2013

Summer is here ! Longer days filled with beaches, pools, BBQ's and vacations.  With all of the fun in the sun activities, this is the season that hair care is most essential.  Why wait until the damage is done when simple hair maintenance can prevent it all together? Keratin Treatment is the most effective way to protect your hair from UV Rays, chlorine and salt.  It keeps the hair silky, shiny, smooth and frizz free while offering the least amount of time and effort needed for styling and looking sexy all summer long. Giving you the lowest maintenance hair care you ever thought possible freeing up more of your time to spend doing the things you love.  I have sought out the highest quality product for this treatment, making it last 5 to 6 months compared to others that only last 2 to 3 months. 

Outside the salon it is important to protect your hair and keep your color vibrant in between visits.  Hair sunscreen serums like Moroccan Oil, Kerastase and Seven are all top of the line products. Use a quarter size portion to saturate the length and ends before going in the sun.  Leave on conditioners are also great.  Do it yourself deep conditioning is also another preventative measure and I sell Conditioning Paks that you can use while in the sun. 

I have some great seasonal tips below including hair cutting trends, styles and colors !  As always I am looking forward to being apart of your new Summer Style and look forward to seeing you at the salon soon.

Cut & Style

Short Hair 
If you have ever considered rocking a short hair style this is the season to do it.  Models, celebrities and leading roles are keeping this trend fresh.  From pixie cuts to A Lines and short shags the options are endless.

Medium Hair Length   
Flat ironed, curled or flipped out, this is the most diverse hair length.  With unlimited options in layering and length, your style can easily be changed for a new look.  A-line, Straight or Round Bob as well as Shoulder Length,  Shag or Short Layers there are so many ways for subtle changes into the new season. 

Long Hair  
My signature cut for this length is the Victoria Secret Layers  also known as seamless layering.  Curls, braids and up dos make this a great length to work with but the cut is most essential to keep it simple and easy to style.


Sun Kissed Blondes
Bombshell blond with sunray highlights is a perfect color for the summer!  Sand colored hues and golden low lights offer endless options for blond on blond coloring.  Make this the season you use your hair color to make a statement - blonder is better!

Sunset Brunettes 
This season  is perfect for honey, caramel and butterscotch highlights.  I am thinking graham cracker is going to be my signature for this color.  Natural highlights or the latest ombre technique makes season this a your time to shine. 

Fiery Reds 
Cabernet, Copper and Strawberry Blonde are perfect tones for the summer reds.  Make your hair color Pop! 

Seasonal Ombre

The Balayage Ombre is my latest hair coloring technique.  Like an artist with a color palette, this new method of applying color allows for more control and blend of dark to light.  This is the perfect way to get that summer sun kissed style and just in time for the season.  

This is also a long standing trend as it is   low maintenance style with application touch ups needed as little as twice a year. 

Updo's & Accessories

Simple side fish tail braids, headband braids and messy Chignons are all signature for summer.   A great tip to enhance these styles is to leave out random drifting pieces. From being at the beach to evening plans, the messy beach hair looks sexy all day long.  So easy updo's are the way to go.
