Most Stylists give a complimentary bang trim in between hair services. But if need be that we have a day that our bangs grow overnight and are in our eyes heres a way that can hold you over til your next appointment…
- Wet then dry your bangs into place like you would normally style them (ie, with roundbrush, fingers..etc.).
- Take your comb and comb down bangs with low even tension. Point cut the ends 1/4 inch by 1/4 inch, then check to make sure it’s even.We use low tension because everyones hairline is very different, plus some people have cowlicks!
There are a few different ways of hidding those pesky greys when they grow out:
- A zig-zag part diffuses that harsh grey line
- Coloured mascara wands or the crayon are extremely easy to use on the part line or temple areas. Some salons sell these two great products!
Split ends are our hairs way of saying they need a cut!
They can occur from heat damage or from not getting a cut for a while.
To avoid split ends, I like to use a heat protecting serum to seal the ends and protect from the heat of the blowdryer and flat iron. I also always put it in after I condition to detangle before I brush hair. Rough brushing also causes breakage in the hair which leads also to split ends.
Keep up with regular cuts to keep away from split ends. We stylists say to get a trim every 4-6 weeks, but some people can go every 4-8 weeks depending on the strength and how fast your hair grows.
The best way I have found to calm those hairs down is with a light hairspray, then pat down. In the past a lot of people have used wax, but the problem with using wax is that it can get very sticky and greasy throughout the day. (a lot of those baby hairs are new growth)
Depending how thick or how thin you want your bangs, I find it takes a good two weeks to get bangs trained, and when I mean trained is when you control them when they are wet, to dry. Get a round brush a good volumizing product and blow dry them into place using tension to set them in place.
If your more of a wash and go person. then i would comb your hair back and see where your hair naturally wants to part.
I’ve used a lot of different lines in my years of hairdressing, and I have never used such a wonderful product that works well with all types of hair and gives the results that it’s suppose to.
Kevin Murphy Products are sulphate and paraben free, and not tested on animals!
Anti Gravity (lavender repells natural oils = no greasy hair then next day!
Young Again Serum protects hair from heat damage (420 degrees with hot tools) and enviromental damage. It also adds incredible shine, isn’t greasy and strengthens hair. It’s true to its name, it will make your hair young again!
Hair Resort Spray is the beach hair in a bottle product. Wash and spray in, or it can be sprayed onto hair before you use your curling hot tools on dry hair. Like Young Again, this product also protects hair up to 420 degrees. Plus I love the smell. It’s like pina coladas!
Fresh Hair is a dry cleaning spray (aka dry shampoo). I have used a lot of different brands of dry shampoos on my clients and nothing compares to this product. No sticky, greasy mess. Just soft and velvety hair to the touch. It sucks up all those oils and removes odour, adds volume, and removes excess product to give you another day of great hair!
Color Bug. Ever wanted to colour your hair pink, orange, purple, lime green, white, and or shimmery gold? This is your temporary fix! It’s a wipe on, wash off colour. Just like applying eye shadow to your eyes, this is colour for your hair!
Add a bit of hair resort spray to the strand of hair you want to colour, wipe on your colour bug, then do a light spray of hairspray to lock the colour. Then when you want it gone, just shampoo it out!
