The Truth Behind High-priced Hair Salons

The Truth Behind High-priced Hair Salons

Have you ever walked out of a salon wondering high priced hair salonwhether or not you have just been overcharged for a simple cut? Many salons pride themselves on using high quality products, thus raising the rates for their customers. Unfortunately, not all salons can be trusted. I am here to share some pearls of wisdom so you may get the most bang for your buck at your next salon visit!

 

The hair salon industry has seen major growth over the last couple years. Salons, spas, and blow out bars have swept the nation, promising customers lasting results and top-notch products. Their increase in popularity has opened numerous avenues of competition and competing prices. Many salons advertise their use of high quality products in order to justify soaring prices. The harsh reality is, however, that these products have the potential of leaving lasting damage due to their mid- grade quality.

 

These few tips will help ensure you are getting your money’s worth at each salon visit:

1. Do not be afraid to question the stylist. It is their job to be knowledgeable about the products they are using. If they cannot give a sufficient answer, this may be a red flag that you are being deceived.

2. Research, research, research! The best way to learn about anything worth spending your money on is looking up the best products beforehand. If research is done properly, it will be very easy to distinguish worthwhile products from those that cause thinning, dulling, and aging.

3. Be a salon detective! Pay close attention to the products around the salon and in the back rooms. It is best if the products are displayed publicly, with labels clearly shown and ingredients indicated on the bottle.

As always, if you have any questions regarding the products your salon is using or wish to speak with a stylist you can trust, make an appointment at my Fort Lauderdale office and we would be happy to assist you!

Working on the Horror Film “The Fallen”

Working-on-the-Horror-Film-The-Fallen-Hair-Stylist-Fort-Lauderdale-1It was a pleasure to work on the set for the Horror Film “The Fallen.” I had so much fun styling the beautiful actors and doing their make-up as well. While it was a challenging job, it was all worth it in the end. Now that the trailer aired last week, I am so excited for the movie to come out! I was so honored to have been a part of this movie, and I hope to work again with Demonslayer Studios in the future, along with the wonderful actors in this film. As I said before, “for me, being able to create is so inspiring. That’s why we look forward to doing more productions and that’s why I choose this kind of career.” I’m so grateful for all of these opportunities I’ve been given and I look forward to being a part of more productions in the future.

Which Bang is Best For You?

When you go to the hair salon and ask them to trim your bangs, there are a million different styles they could cut. What most people don’t know is that there are several types of bangs and face-framing cuts. It’s important to be specific when communicating to your hairdresser what it is you want; otherwise, you could end up with a completely different cut than what you expected.

So here I’ve outlined a few of the essential bang cuts:

1. Straight Bangs

These are the typical straight-across bangs that most hairstylists will think of when you ask for bangs. You can ask for them to be a little longer, just brimming your eyes, or shorter so your bangs don’t touch your eyes. These types of bangs typically look well on someone who has a long face shape with thick hair to really give it some volume. To style these bangs, I recommend using a round brush when blow-drying them. It will give them some extra volume that will leave these bangs looking bouncy and fun!

2. Fringe Bangs

These bangs are a little more versatile than straight bangs. They typically have more pieces to them and should be trimmed when your hair is dry. These types of bangs work well on someone who has a heart shaped face. These bangs will bring all of the attention to those beautiful eyes on this face shape. You can use a flat iron to straighten these out and a blow dryer as well to give a little more bounce if you want.

These bangs don’t go straight down your face, but instead sweep over to one side of your face. These side-swept bangs will add some softness to your strong jawlines and give your hair some great movement. When styling these bangs, give them some volume by blow-drying them as if you had blunt bangs. This will give them some layering and blend right into the rest of your hair.

I hope this helped solve any confusion you may have about which bangs you should try out. Bangs are fun and a great way to change up your normal style. If you’re still not sure which style would look best for you, schedule an appointment in my Fort Lauderdale office and we can talk about it!

 

 

Had So Much Fun Styling SummerDai!

It was such a pleasure to style SummerDai for her new mini movie “The Time is Now.” She is such a talented artist, and I had so much fun styling her hair for this video. From a classic half-up, half-down hairstyle to gorgeous curls, SummerDai glowed in whatever style she wore. I’m so pleased with the work I was able to accomplish for SummerDai, and I think it really showed in the video. Check out SummerDai’s new mini movie “The Time is Now” showing boys they need to hurry up if they want to be with SummerDai. Thank you SummerDai for this amazing opportunity and I hope to work with you again in the future!
