Mar. 30

Don’t be afraid to work with hair tools and products. For silky locks, apply smoothing serum prior to flat-ironing tresses. Finish with a drop of shine serum, and you’re ready to go!

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 27


Mar. 27

You don’t always have to use one tool to curl your coif. Set locks on an assortment of medium and large hot rollers to create variations in curl size.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 26


Mar. 26

If you’re hesitant to try a new mane shade, ask your stylist for a semi-permanent color. You’ll have a few weeks to get used to the new you!

Bad hair day? Try parting your hair on the side, fashion small braids and toss them up into a low bun.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 24


Mar. 24

If you’re heat styling your mane on a regular basis, apply a bit of leave-in conditioner to your hair to protect it from the heat.

Don’t let your lovely layers fall flat! Enhance razored edges by flat-ironing the ends for a sleek, smooth finish.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 22

Braids are for grown-ups, too! Craft a thick braid at your nape and twist into a nifty chignon or add one around the face for a “head band” effect.

Anyone can wear any haircolor. The trick? Consult with a hair expert to find the best version of the hue for your skin tone.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 20

Make your haircolor really gleam by having your stylist apply glossing treatment, or pick up the DIY version at home.

Love bangs, but don’t want to give up your long locks? Keep the bangs a little longer, skimming your lashes, for a sexy look that doesn’t skimp on length.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 16


Mar. 16

Give your cropped layers a bit of edginess with a touch of sculpting wax. Put a dab on your fingers and work it through individual strands for a piecey effect.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 15


Mar. 15

Keep long-lasting waves throughout your mane by securing loose curls with hair pins; then, let them cool to maintain their shape.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 14

Accessories can add flair to your ‘do, but non-abrasive clips and covered elastic bands eliminate breaking and pulling.

When applying any hair product, section hair and apply product to each portion individually to ensure even distribution.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 12

Give your crown a little lift and apply some root booster (to the roots, of course!) before blow-drying with a medium round brush.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 8

To best care for a wavy mane, run a curl cream through damp strands prior to diffusing.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 7


Mar. 7

Want volume? Lift one section of hair straight up and move teasing comb down from root to tip in one fluid motion. No ratting!

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 6

Short hair? Try a smooth daytime look, then use hair wax for a daring texture at night.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 5

To make ringlets last, spray each section of hair with light hairspray before using your curling iron.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 4

When you opt for a low-maintenance hair day, toss your strands up into a ponytail and secure with a covered elastic band without a metal casing to avoid doing damage to your hair.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 3


Mar. 3

Give your mane a little boost with voluminous curls. The trick is to let the spirals cool completely before you brush through them so they don’t lose shape.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 2


Mar. 2

If you want to brighten up your tame caramel coif, try golden highlights for a little spark.

Hair Tip of the Day – Mar. 1


Mar. 1

Pump up the volume by blow-drying hair with a round brush, lifting at the crown to engage a bit of height into your coif.
