Protective Styles

Stop stressing out your strands with unhealthy and excessive tugging and pulling that can cause your hair to become delicate and potentially led to hair loss! Instead of tight buns and ponytails the hair care experts at Viviscal suggest safe and stylish looks like messy updos, long bangs, shoulder length looks, Natural hairdos and loose, bohemian ponytails.

Great idea!

DOES IT WORK?: Hair, Skin & Nail Vitamins

It seems like every social media stunner swears by this and that vitamin that is guaranteed to give you dream hair, skin and nails. But are they worth the hype? With the help of Viviscal, here are the vitamins that actually help to give you healthy hair, strong nails and gorgeous skin…

Marine Fatty Acids, such as omega 3, works to heal dry and damaged hair, combat hair loss and treat flaky scalp.

Vitamin B acts as antioxidant for the skin and can help remove bacteria and balance testosterone levels to fight acne.

Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is a must for healthy hair! This vitamin stimulates hair growth and promotes healthy hair.

If your haircolor is growing out at the roots, stagger your part on the diagonal. It will scatter the color and distract the eye from seeing a regrowth line.

Emmy Look How-To: Laura Dern

We know we’re not the only ones who loves Big Little Lies’s Laura Dern’s luscious locks at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards! Her hairstylist, celebrity hairdresser Ryan Trygstad was kind enough to break down her feisty look for us using The One by Frédéric Fekkai products…

“Once seeing the dress, we decided to go with the more sexy undone texture, with a bit of edge and choppiness. I first prepped Laura’s hair with One to Believe In Leave-In Conditioner then blew her hair half dry with a large round brush. Next I added The Gifted One Multitasker Creme through the mid-shaft and ends for protection and shine. Then I used the One Up Lift Volume Spray for root lift and long-lasting control. Once Laura’s hair was completely dry I first sprayed the entire head with the One To Hold Hairspray I did this to help with hold when I next curled her hair with a ceramic one-inch, leaving the ends of the hair a bit straighter and spikey. For the final product I sprayed One and Then Some Dry Texturizing Spray for a dry loose hold, and sexiness!”

Use a detoxifying or clarifying shampoo every two weeks to remove product buildup from your hair and scalp.


We love these looks from New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 featuring these looks created with TRESemme Repair & Protect 7 Shampoo and Conditioner and TRES Two Hair Spray. The TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo is massaged into roots with fingers when hair is dry for max texture and the TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shine Serum is used to create a roughed up rock ’n’ roll effect. Looks by Justin Marjan, TRESemme Global Stylist for Alice + Olivia.  I did not wake up like this hair!

MYTH BUSTED: Is Hot Water Hair Safe?

We’ve all heard the trick of washing our mane with cold water. Is that because hot water is actually damaging to our coifs? According to the experts at Viviscal, hot-water washes won’t directly cause hair loss, but can affect the health of your scalp. They suggest washing and conditioning strands with warm water, never scalding hot water, and then finishing with a cold water rinse.

Kelsea’s Updo How-To

Photo: FilmMagic | CFlanigan

Kelsea Ballerini stunned, as usual, at the 2017 IHeartRadio Music Festival with the help of celebrity hairstylist Tarryn Feldman. “This look is super sleek but edgy, Feldman explains. “We wanted to do something sophisticated in the front and off her face with a little eye candy in the back.” Check out how the beautiful ‘do was created…

“I used BioSilk Silk Therapy serum with the BioSilk Titanium Professional Hair Dryer to give her hair massive volume. After it was dry, I used Kevin Murphy Doo Over at her roots. I took the BioSilk Titanium Spring Curling Iron to give her texture in the front. I started in the back and did 3 twist braids to create the Mohawk effect in the back. Then, I teased her roots and pinned her hair back and connected to the top braid. I used BioSilk Silk Therapy Dry Clean Shampoo to piece out the front and BioSilk Silk Therapy Finishing Spray: Firm Hold to hold the look. Also, I used some ORIBE Dry Texturizing Spray as well as Kevin Murphy Powder Puff.”
