How Keeping a Long-Standing Relationship with Your Stylist Helps

Once you find a hair stylist that you love, maintaining a long-standing relationship with her can benefit you in a variety of ways…

First of all, there is NO LEARNING CURVE with a stylist who has been working with you and with your hair for a long time.

Secondly, SHE KNOWS WHAT YOU LIKE, so she can suggest great new styles and colors that would suit you, and there is never a danger of cutting your hair too short or styling your hair in some creepy, so- not- good-way. Your preferences will always be a priority because she knows them so well.

Finally, SHE KNOWS YOUR HAIR. Each person has hair with different qualities. Some hair needs to be thinned at the sides, so that you don’t end up with the dreaded “triangle hair.” Some hair needs to be cut in a way that gives it more body and makes it appear fuller. And some hair needs specific types of styling products to draw out its best in show. Whether your hair is thick, thin or needs to be tamed can determine how she needs to cut and style your hair. If she knows your hair, she knows how it will react to a new cut, style or product, and the end result is always a good one.

If you are not in love with your stylist, come in to New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon for a visit. A professional stylist can consult with you and answer any of your questions. After your first visit, we assure you that you will never want to stray!

Get Ready for Summer with a New Do!

Summer is a great time for hair. You can mix it up and keep things cool with an updo. Wear it in a messy bun or sport some barely there braids. How about a sexy falling down up-do? Try a chunky topknot or an ultra-high pony. Maybe you’d prefer a half up-do, a wavy side pony, a fishtail braid, or a low side braid. No matter what style you prefer for summer, we are “up” to it at New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon!

Aside from limitless updos and other summer styles, we have all the latest summer hair colors. Try out a new brighter color for summer! We also offer all the new cuts that are trending for summer. Get yourself a new, chic cut from one of our professional stylists. Come try out a tousled pixie or soft beach curls. Summer can be so much fun!

Just remember that summer can create hair debacles too! Summer heat can cause frizz. Hair needs moisture to stay frizz-free. Remember that cold water closes hair cuticles, sealing in moisture. A cold water rinse can increase shine and smooth hair, but we can do even more for you at New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon. We can schedule you for a deep conditioning treatment to fight summer frizz. Our deep conditioning will pamper you, and leave your hair feeling soft and silky.

Whatever your wish for summer, you can find it here at New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon. Give us a call at 386-279-1179 to book your appointment today!

Up, Up and Away!

Get Uppity, Girl! Updos are a gorgeous way to wear your hair, and just in time for spring and summer! Updos are great in so many ways. If you wear your hair down a lot, they can change your look. Updos are especially helpful if you want to change appearance from a daytime look to a nighttime look. They keep your hair off your face, and when your hair is away from your face, people tend to focus on your pretty features, your flawless make-up and your stylish accessories, such as sparkling earrings.

Updos are great for a wedding because, besides being beautiful, they make attaching a veil easier. They make your neck more accessible and, subsequently, more kissable! They can help keep your hair in place while you are dancing, and they are also good for proms. Just think…it will be easier to place the tiara on your head when you win prom queen!

Updos can be braided, curled or coifed. They can be as simple and elegant as a French twist. Try a messy updo for sexy appeal; or go for a partial updo and aim for both – sophisticated sexy! You can use beautiful barrettes, flowers and hair jewelry to accessorize.

Of course, long and sleek is also very elegant, as is a sophisticated side braid. Long hair is especially elegant when pinned back at the top with pretty, curling tendrils. Long curls to one side can also be a very classy style. Short and sassy can also be a very stylish look. Try a beautiful bob, forties flapper, slicked back like Charlize Theron or medium length and a little longer in the front like Julianne Hough.

Any way you twist it, New Smyrna Beach Hair Salon in charming, historic New Smyrna Beach can help. Give us a call at 386-279-1179 to book your appointment today!

Protect Your Hair in the Summer

Frolicking in the summer sun can be great fun, but it can also be harsh on hair. The hot summer sun dries everything, including hair. It can contribute to dry scalp, dandruff, split ends and color fading. Summer humidity can also turn healthy, bouncy hair into limp and lifeless hair and it can turn up the frizz.

Over-conditioning can be a mistake; washing your hair every day is never a good option; and not washing your hair for extended periods is also not a good idea. So, what can you do to protect your hair from the summer elements?

First, go easy on the chemical hair treatments in the summer months. Try to color your hair the month before the summer sun is expected to become its strongest. Then, go as natural as you can. The summer sun is already turning up the heat, so also try to keep blow dryer, curler and styling iron use to a minimum. Protect your color by wearing a hat or a scarf if you are going to be in the direct sun. Use a mild shampoo, and only shampoo the scalp (not the ends) during the summer. Dry shampoos in between regular shampoos are a good way to keep shampoo time to a minimum. Use a rinse-out conditioner that suits your hair type to restore moisture. Some conditioners even contain sunscreen, which is a great addition for the summer months. Keeping hydrated helps hydrate your skin and hair, so remember to drink lots of fluids. Opt for ponytails, knots, buns and other up-dos to reduce sweating and frizz, and keep your ends trimmed for optimal health.

Swimming is an entirely separate matter. Never shampoo before taking a swim. If you do, you will leave hair more vulnerable to pool chemicals. Using a bathing cap is always a good idea. Take a quick shower after swimming in a chlorinated pool to rinse the chorine from your hair. Also use a good leave-in conditioner after swimming in a chlorinated pool.

Hair Care for Your New “Do”!

A gorgeous, new hairstyle can really set off that little black dress and give you the confidence you need to light up a room. Taking care of that new “do” can be just as important because healthy hair is beautiful hair.

First and foremost, it is important to eat a healthy diet, rich in vitamins, to promote optimal hair health. B vitamins help restore hair shine and thickness to strands; iron carries vital oxygen to hair and, like zinc, promotes hair growth; and vitamins E and D also work toward keeping hair healthy.

It is just as important to know when to wash your hair. Many people make the mistake of washing their hair too often. For most people, twice a week is adequate. The longer, thicker and more processed hair is, the longer it should go between washes. Use shampoos and conditioners that are suited to your hair type. If your hair is oily and you need to wash it more frequently, be sure to use a lightweight shampoo.

Always use conditioner when after shampooing. Conditioner will moisturize your help, help prevent damage and make hair easier to comb. Use a leave-in conditioner once a week for deep penetration into hair follicles and more complete healing.

Water temperature can also have a significant effect on hair health. Hot water can leave hair overly porous, resulting in dry or brittle hair. It can weaken hair at the roots and cause breakage. Heat can also rob hair of natural oils, causing frizz. Warm water can be more beneficial. It allows dirt and accumulated hair product to be rinsed away without the damage that hot water can cause. Cold water can also be very good. It closes pores and prevents dirt and hair products from entering and accumulating on the scalp. It also closes hair cuticles, sealing in moisture. A cold water rinse can increase shine and smooth hair, but be careful…it can also flatten hair. If your hair lacks volume or you have naturally thin hair, you may want to avoid this.

Also keep in mind that wet hair is more susceptible to breakage than dry hair, so use a wide tooth comb instead of brushing after shampooing. Also, do not rub wet hair with a towel. Gently blot instead, as rough towel drying can cause damage.
