Updo How-To
August 25, 2016

updo how to 1

Special event coming up? Then here’s your special hairstyle! Designer Ashley O’Dell of Michael’s Salon and Spa in Centerville, OH, shares the step-by-step for this classic and chic upsweep…

updo how to one←Step One
Prep hair with a volumizing mousse and blow-dry with a round brush. Section off crown and bang area; curl vertically around sides and back with a 1 ¼” marcel iron, spraying each section with a heat-styling spray as you go (O’Dell used Aquage Working Spray). Continue to the crown, curling hair horizontally in a downward motion and pinning each curl in place with a double prong clip.

updo how to twoStep Two→
Let curls cool completely before unclipping. Relax hair with a polishing brush, following the brush with your hand to maintain a smooth wave.

updo how to threeStep Three
With the crown sectioned off, rolled under, and clipped out of the way, make “C” shape partings above each ear and clip sides out of the way. Maintain “C” shape partings for all sections, facing downward through the back sections. This conceals your part lines as you pull the hair into place.

updo how to fourStep Four
Starting on the right side, pull back the first section of hair loosely and secure in the center of the back with a bobby pin. Continue pulling sections of hair, alternating from right to left, until you reach the bottom, pinning each as you go.

updo how to fiveStep Five
Pull each side section back loosely and pin into the folds of the previous sections. Unclip crown and tease section for volume. Gently smooth surface, roll ends under, and pin just above the previously pinned hair, manipulating with your fingers to lay in a swooped way. Lightly tease bang area to help hold the hair together and smooth back, allowing the hair to bend and flow with the waves created by the curling iron. Pin in place and mist with a finishing spray for a firm hold. Add flowers or jeweled hair accessories if desired.

Nude Hair?!
August 24, 2016

 
You’ve heard about warm and cool hair, but what about when the tone is somewhere in the middle, like Cara Delevingne? That’s what colorist Jack Howard, of Paul Edmonds salon in the UK calls “nude” hair. “There’s an even amount of both warm and cool tones, which cancel each other out to create a neutral shade; think mousey but expensive,” shares the L’Oreal Professionnel UK Colour Spokesperson. “To create this look, several blonde shades are blended together to create that overall ‘nude’ finish. It’s becoming an increasingly popular look as it works with all complexions – neutral shades work great on blonde hair and it’s a low maintenance service.” We like. A lot.

Beauty Changes Lives
August 23, 2016

The Beauty Changes Lives Foundation is calling on beauty and wellness professionals, salons and industry partners to share tips of wealth and wisdom with Next Generation beauty talent with their ScholarTips campaign.

Since 2013, the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation has cultivated and administered scholarships for aspiring hairstylists, estheticians, nail professionals, massage therapists and make-up artists. The Foundation has helped to launch the careers of nearly 300 beauty and wellness professionals. ScholarTips provides an opportunity for the industry to channel its history of generosity and pay forward its success by supporting the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation.

“Tips and generosity go hand-in-hand in the beauty and wellness business. Whether it’s sharing a hard-learned lesson or giving a hand up to a newcomer waiting to take her place behind the chair, ScholarTips provides an opportunity for all of us to support the future of our industry,” said Lynelle Lynch, president of the Beauty Changes Lives Foundation. “As back-to-school season gets underway, we have an opportunity to help Next Generation talent pursue the gift of education.”

Styling Like Selena
August 22, 2016

styling like selena

Selena Gomez is on tour and tearing up the style scene with her on-stage fashions and toss-my-hair-like-so silhouettes. Pantene Celebrity Stylist Marissa Marino is styling Pantene Brand Ambassador Selena Gomez’s hair for one of summer’s hottest concerts. Marino’s biggest secret to maintaining Selena’s perfect, natural waves is simple: keep hair strong and healthy to help prevent frizz when traveling to various cities with different climates, and help prevent and repair damage from the excessive use of styling tools.

Here are a few tips from Marino on how you can create your own strong, beautiful, frizz-free waves just like Selena’s.

>>“Wash and condition hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to help nourish curls without weighing them down.”

>>“I also always tell Selena to air dry her hair whenever possible, as that reduces that amount of heat I’m using on her hair and protects it from getting damaged—and I highly recommend doing this on a regular basis.”

 >>“Once hair is dry, apply Pantene Pro-V’s Smooth Anti-Humidity Airspray as a finishing spray to help prevent frizz and secure beautiful curls.”
