Sarah’s Tip of the Week

Having trouble with your scalp’s skin staying consistent — especially when traveling? Try rinsing with the same bottled water each day (if you’re a traveler, make sure the bottle is sold at your destination).  Using the same water will help keep your scalp’s PH unshocked and stable.  Read more of Sarah’s tips click here.

Dye Your Gray’s Away

Sarah’s tip of the week! 

tea-bagsGray hair peeping out from your temples?  Make a thick, thick tea and dab the tannin on your grays for a quick fix (lighter tea for blonds, darker for brunettes).  A dab of permanent dye to tide you over until you have the full head of hair done is even better.

Curling with Asian Hair

Hi!
I have a wedding to attend in about 2 weeks. I have been trying to curl my super straight hair and spraying various products to see what will make the curls stay. Nothing seems to work! I have super straight asian hair and everytime I curl my long hair, the curls just become straight within 1 hour or so. How do I get those pretty curls to stay in my hair? What hair products and curling iron would you recommend? Could you give me a step by step on what hair products to apply first?  Thank you so much!! I’ve been trying for years to get curls to stay in my hair and nothing has worked.

Dear StyleBell Reader,

It is very difficult to curl Asian hair and to retain the curl once completed.  Styling products are definitely your friend and probably the only way you will be able to keep that curl all night.  I would try using both a mousse and a hairspray to keep the bounce in your curl.
1) Put a light mousse on your hair while damp, Davines Volume Soft Hold Mousse is a good choice.
2) When curling each group of hair you can use any curling iron which has high heat like the Hot Tools Curling Iron with variable temperature.
3) While curling each group of hair, spritz hair spray each time.  This will provide better hold.  Davines Glam Power Spray is an excellent choice. 
4) Once you are complete with your curls spray more hairspray on the style.

Big Hair Makes a Comeback

From Sarah Jessica Parker’s June cover of Vogue to Angelina Jolie’s July cover of Vanity Fair the celebs and supermodels are sporting big vavava voom hair.  Think 80’s without the aquanet.  Do we really want to go down that road?  Celeb stylists, like Ted Gibson, are saying yes!  Stylists are saying yes to the big hair but a way no to the stickiness.  Now with fantastic new products women are able to got the volume and build of the hair without the the flakes and dried up gel.  Check out our steps to getting incredible big hair.

  1. Apply a volumizing product to the roots, like the CHI Volumizer.  Next apply a controlling foam or gel, like the Davines Firm Hold Foam, to your hair.  After applying assure that you brush or comb through your hair.  This will allow for even distribution of the products.
  2. Blow-dry your hair until it is completely dry.  Make sure to blow dry your hair upside down or assure roots are lifted.  A nice medium size round barrel brush does the trick.
  3. Once hair is dry start with the hot rollers.  Wrap 2 inch sections of the hair around Jumbo rollers.  Leave rollers for about 10 to 15 minutes.  Remove the rollers
  4. Your hair should now have long waves in it.  Brush out, tease at the roots and brush out in the back.  Spritz with a light hair spray all over your hair.  Throw your hair upside down and brush underneath and style.

Voila big hair in a matter of minutues.  Enjoy!
