1. Soft Waves
Nothing says flirty better than beautiful, wavy hair.  To get the look – run a leave-in conditioner through your hair.  Take a large-barrel curling iron and wrap a few random sections and curl.  Immediately run your fingers through the curls to loosen them  - giving you that soft look.  Flip your hair over and spritz with your favorite hairspray.

2.  The Classic Bun
Whether you're going for something chic or a fun and "messy" look, the classic bun is perfect for a night out on the town.  Want to achieve the perfect bun?  Try using a foam doughnut or you can pick up a "sock bun" from any local drugstore.

3.  Sleek and Straight
Shiny, pin straight tresses are always a go to for a perfectly, polished look.  Run a heat protectant spray through your strands.  Attach a nozzle to your blow dryer and point the airflow down on your hair from above.  Finish with a blast of cool air to seal your cuticles and a light shine spray. 
 

Winter Hair Care Solutions

We all know that the winter can wreak havoc on our skin, from drying to cracking, but did you know that cold weather can have the same type of damaging effects on your hair?  The combination of frigid temperatures, snow, sun exposure and even indoor heating, can create some pretty dry, brittle strands. 

But there's good news! With the proper attention and care, you can easily avoid a winter hair crisis!  So what should you do?

1.  Moisture, Moisture, Moisture

  • opt for rich, creamy shampoos and conditioners that contain moisturizing ingredients like silicone, protein or shea butter
  • Treat your locks to an ultra deep conditioning treatment a few times throughout the winter season

2.  Avoid Excess Heat

  • Steer clear of blow dryers, curling irons and hair straighteners.  We recommend letting hair air dry for a least 30 minutes first, this way you won't need to use your blow dyer too long
  • If you do blow dry, be sure to spritz hair with a thermal protection product prior to styling
  • Experiment with cute, fun up-dos in the winter months 

3. Trim Those Tresses

  • The dryer your hair is, the more split ends you'll have.  Visit your stylist a bit more often in the winter to get rid of dull ends.

Don't neglect your stands - show them a little TLC and say goodbye to bad winter hair!
