Hair trends come and go, some can pull them off, other's not so much. AND THAT IS OKAY.
One trend that almost anyone can join in on are hair accessories! From glittery hair pins, sleek leather headbands, head scarves, and barrettes! Lots of barrettes apparently. I'm getting a very 90's vibe. Junior high and high school, anyone? A hair accessory is the perfect way to polish any look whether formal or casual, and with endless possibilities, you can find one that is uniquely you. That's my favorite type of trend, anyway!
So, tie that high ponytail up with a leather band, or bring some tousled pieces away from your face with a jeweled barrette. Seriously, you can't go wrong! I mean, we aren't Marie Antoinette with little decorative ships in her hair. Although, I would personally love to try one day!
Shimmer and shine, baby! This slightly glittery mist smells as delicious as it looks. Packed with vitamins and ingredients from the Australian Rainforest to help hydrate and improve your hair's elasticity, this treatment also doubles as a finishing spray on dry hair. Gently twirl before use on damp or dry hair to help tame flyaways and you're left with a brilliant shine that pops as the light hits. Add a little spritz here and there and get your glow on!
If mess-free curls are your thing this summer, you're going to love this stuff.
Color-Proof's SeaSugar is a salt-free beach spray designed to keep your hair from drying out while also creating thick, voluminous waves. Not only does your hair feel soft, it's also protected from harmful UVA/UVB rays that strip the color you work hard to protect!
This can be applied to damp hair and air-dried if you're a wash and go type of person. Here's my personal method if you'd like to give it a go: I spray a few pumps and comb through to make sure the product is evenly distributed. I grab my blow dryer and dry the roots on the top of my head making sure to create lift. I then attach the diffuser to the dryer, lower the speed and voila! Sexy, tousled locks! For added polish, I gently add PlushLocks on the ends.
Give this a try and I promise you'll be riding those waves in no time!
Drab winters days can make hair seems so flat, but not to fret because ColorProof's Thickening Blow Dry Spray can plump up those locks in no time. This heat activated spray instantly expands the volume in hair leaving it noticeably thicker. What else does this wonderful product do? It fortifies and strengthens the hair from inside to prevent breakage. With heat and color protecting qualities, this spray is basically a super hero in liquid form and you need it in your arsenal of hair goodies. My personal favorite time to use this is on days I'm wearing my hair straight. Even after a day or two of no washing, the volume is still there., but then so are the layers of dry shampoo and well, that's another story all together!
Until then, thicken up those skinny tresses with this miracle worker!
January Product of the Month
PlushLocks by ColorProof
or as I like it think of it, Product of the Hair Gods.
This leave-in conditioning treatment can be applied to either damp or dry hair. When applied to damp hair before blow drying it helps smooth the hair out for a frizz free finish. On dry hair it helps tame fly-aways and is the perfect pick me up for 2nd day hair. Go ahead and use it for 3rd day hair, too. I won't tell, but remember a little goes a long way!
It's a staple for me at both the salon and at home. The best part about ColorProof styling products is that they're all heat protecting to aid in longer color longevity and healthy locks.
Oh, and if a sugar cookie and vanilla cake slice fell in love and bottled up their love child, this is what it would smell like.
Pick some up next time you're in the salon!
You Always Live Again - M.I.A.
It's been many, many a year since I have hair blogged. Somewhere, lurking, in the interwebs is an old, outdated account. I didn't bother looking for it because it's in the past, and I am a different person now. Again. We change and yet we stay the same, right?
This will hopefully turn into a little random spot filled with anything and everything that will (almost always) circle back to my biggest passion, hair. I don't know how great I will be at posting but I will try.
It's a new year and I'm feeling oddly optimistic.
I hope you'll find some neat things here!
