A Prediction on Clipper Designs

8kJMIK2u1knhomrvXZa7lq8bfH9G1nN4nUYuVpI4ck4This prediction is more based on a hunch than anything else, but it’s a strong hunch.

Designs crafted on men’s faces and scalps with the use of clippers and razors is nothing new. It has been relegated to strip malls, Dennis Rodman and botched jobs found in google search results. Though, there is an incredibly high attention to craft and detail I believe it has yet to be fully realized in the proper fashion world. Designs themselves are more times than not “street-art”-esque, graffiti, flames and tribal patterns that have purely just been out of style for well over a decade.mDayngmWXLgiPkXjVaUuZbNXfMooHOqwZw_mO5nkc3c

But, like all other things fashionable, these trends come in cycles and it’s about time we begin to re-hash the period of the late 90’s and early 00’s. It’s going to happen and all things about that period will be dragged up with it, including clipper designs. Although, my prediction is that the designs will take on a new tone. The new designs will likely be more geometric, more abstract in many cases, or purely ironic.

Look out for Bad Boy logos and wild-stylz!

5 Tips For Shaving Better

YEx8PTeUMteUSD91rc5bBGWHz3RVxFWD6uujYIZpvYMThe majority of men are thrown right into the deep end when it comes to shaving and along the way we, as men, have picked up a number of common, but unhealthy habits for our skin. The resurgence of Barbering has brought to light many of these habits that may be easily corrected with a couple of key elements.

1) First, if you’re going to be taking a razor to your face do yourself a favor and prep your skin as much as time will allow you. With a standard straight razor shave in a shop, there are over 5 preparatory steps taken before the razor touches the face. Doing just a couple will make a difference.

2) Use a pre-shave oil, like an Aveda Composition oil. Many oils will work although oils marketed “pre-shave” are specifically designed for softening the beard and are ideal.

3) Warm the skin to soften those pores and relax the skin. Using a hot towel works great for coverage, a quick tip is to wet a face towel and throw it in the microwave for about one minute and drape it over your face until it cools.

4) Apply your shave cream, or lather immediately afterwards and go with the grain. Do this before you think about shaving against the grain. This is one of those things that causes the most irritation. AFTER you’ve shaved with the grain you can go back against the grain after re-applying lather, but it’s not recommended if you’re not a daily shaver.

5) Use that same towel to wipe residue and apply a non-alcohol after shave. The Aveda After Shave is excellent and has soothing lavender and lemon scents.

DIY Dry Shampoo

sgnvhRa9IsYXaPhOLrk8scxlZpk-2japkoqgjzkwmAwIngredients you’ll need to make this DIY Dry Shampoo Recipe:

For light hair:

* Corn Starch

* Baking Soda

* Essential Oil (optional, provides scent)

* Empty Salt Shaker

For dark hair:

* Cocoa Powder

* Corn Starch

* Essential Oil (optional, provides scent)

* Empty Salt Shaker

To make dry shampoo for light hair:

Combine 1/2 cup of corn starch with 2 table spoons of baking soda. It’s true that you could just use corn starch on its own, but baking powder absorbs the scent of the corn starch. If you aren’t concerned with the scent of corn starch, you can omit the use of the baking powder. Add a few drops of essential oil of your choice. I used peppermint because it’s my favorite, and I wanted to smell fresh. I love it.

To make dry shampoo for dark hair:

Combine 1/2 cup of cocoa powder with 2 tablespoons of corn starch. Just as with the last one, you can add essential oil if desired. But this one has a great chocolate-y scent when left alone. I love it!

To use the wonderful dry shampoo you’ve just made, you only have to sprinkle some onto the root of your hair, where you want to freshen it up. After about a day or two, my hair starts to look a little limp as it gets more and more oily. I use dry shampoo in between washes to keep the volume in my hair that I love to see.

Sprinkle it in the desired area, and use the same motions you use when actually shampooing for best results. When used correctly, dry shampoo absorbs oil and gives volume. Give it a try!

How to Create Boho Curls

unz2L4hUXnwSzCcGK4oxa376p9YCejlC01BvZYgYFVMThe point of Boho curls is to accomplish a style that looks very lived-in rather messy. Surprisingly, achieving a lived-in look requires a fair amount of work!

First, prep your hair with the products and tools listed above. After drying your hair completely, section your hair and prepare to curl it with your hot tool of choice.

If you’re using a Marcel Iron/Wand:

I would suggest wrapping your hair around the barrel, as you would with a wand. Alternate the directions you curl the hair to add a more natural look.

If you’re using a flat iron:

I would suggest using a wand or a Marcel iron. Flat iron curls take a lot of patience and practice. However, if you insist on using one, use it as follows:

After you’ve curled your entire head, let your curls cool. Set them with some hair spray and then lightly brush through the curls.

Finish your style with a little sea salt spray, if you’ve got some, and off you go! Below are some great tools for prepping your hair:

* Aveda Pure Abundance Style PrepKJDU22cDFW183QQ3WoUMMLQX7Hm15Z1MwNZRpZt6xdM

* Aveda Phomollient

* Blow Dryer

* Round Brush

Tools needed for styling your hair:

* A hot tool used for curl forming, such as:

* Marcel Iron

* Flat Iron

* Curling Wand

* Sea Salt Spray (optional)

5 Questions To Ask Yourself Before Rushing off to your Salon

Fb305E_UURjZdMjedUDCfd2Dc0V04sF68ltqCEqVGvMIt is easy to look at a picture of the hottest celebrity hair styles and think “huh! I could pull that off!” and run quickly to the nearest salon and have your hair either hacked off, or colored into oblivion. Before you do that, (and you should!), you should ask yourself these five questions:

1.) “Is this something I plan on maintaining?”

Shorter hairstyles require more frequent trims to keep the style fresh, and the same can be said for a more dramatic color. If you have dark hair, is going platinum something you want to maintain when you start to see new growth?

2.) “Is this something I can afford to maintain?”

A color drastically different from that of your natural color is one that is difficult, and often expensive to maintain. That’s why you have to make sure it’s a change you can afford to keep up. Going platinum when your hair is naturally dark brown is going to result in high upkeep, and usually, a fairly high price tag. The same can be said of going darker when you naturally have very light hair.

3.) “What will this look like as it grows out?”

Is this style or color going to be something you’re comfortable with as it grows out, if you choose not to maintain it?

4.) “Will this style work with my natural texture?”

If it does, great! If it doesn’t, are you willing to style it frequently so that it does?

5.) “Does this style require daily styling?”

Some shorter or more dramatic hairstyles have to be heat styled daily. They often require more than just the daily dose of styling products. If you plan on doing that every morning before work, awesome! However, if it is something you don’t think you’ll have time or patience for, perhaps pick something of a lower level of maintenance.

These are the same questions I ask clients who come to me asking for a drastic change. When your stylist asks you these questions, don’t think they’re trying to talk you out of doing something fun! Just know that they want to make sure you’re up to the challenge of having awesome hair.

Empowering Yourself Through Your Hair

F4ck3UFrvWv7usneGWTrjjr8dUuyTTNRWUxrKd3TjYgAs a stylist, the only thing that breaks my heart into a million pieces, is when someone sits in my chair and is only allowed to do what their significant other decides for them. As someone who cares too little of what other people think of her, I have never understood this kind of mentality. I have never understood giving someone the power to control my physical appearance.

There are so many things about life that you often cannot control, but your hair has to be one of the things you do control. There is something so deeply empowering about realizing that you own yourself, and showing it with the way you carry yourself and stylize yourself through your physical appearance.

I once had a client who came in to have her hair bleach-and-toned. When I asked her why she decided to go so much lighter, she responded with “my fiance wants me to be blonde for our wedding and I just want him to look at me and think I’m beautiful.” I had to stop myself from going on a rant. All I said was “he had better look at you that way even if you show up to your wedding in pajamas!” and we laughed. But it got me thinking. She should have been bleaching her hair because SHE wanted to go lighter. Not because she was afraid someone would find her less attractive on her WEDDING DAY if she wasn’t a perfect blonde. She should wear her hair the way she loves to wear it. And if she loves it blonde, then by all means! But if she doesn’t, well…she should reevaluate why she’s damaging her hair. Is she damaging it because she wants to be blonde, or because she wants someone else to like her more because she’s blonde? These things matter greatly to a person’s psyche.

I have always believed that in order for other people to truly love you, you first have to love yourself. And sometimes that shows through your hairstyle, your makeup, and your clothes. But before you love all of those things, you have GOT to love yourself. Everything else will follow.

So love yourself. Do what you want with your hair. Make yourself happy first, and the rest will follow. Love yourself. LOVE. YOUR. SELF.

Benefits of Using a Toner

Toners seem to be underrated and I’ve noticed that a lot of my clients either don’t use them or understand very little about the benefits of incorporating a toner in their beauty routine. Some people think that creams are enough, but that isn’t always the case. Here are some facts about toners and the reasons why they are so important.

One of the worst things you can do to your skin is upset the PH balance of your Acid Mantle (the top layer of skin). The most common way is by using products that are too alkaline (hint: most soaps). Although these soaps help clean the skin and can feel great, it actually is changing the balance of the PH level of the skin. Disrupting the acid mantle can weaken the skin’s immune system, can cause premature aging, or can cause a host of inflammatory skin conditions such as acne.

The ideal PH for the Acid Mantle is slightly acidic between 4 and 6.5. Using a toner after cleansing helps to balance the Acid Mantle, and soothes the skin.

Aveda’s Botanicals Kinetic Skin Firming Toner

This toner is my favorite. It not only balances the PH level of the acid mantle, but it hydrates your skin as well. It is infused with sodium hyaluronate, echinacea, rosewater for hydration, and it is very soothing. It is also excellent for all skin types. By adding this one small step each day will change the health of your skin. I highly recommend starting to use a toner after each cleanse.

4 Things to Look for When Shopping for the Perfect Flat Iron

June 19, 2015
By

Buying a flat iron is not as easy as it may sound-especially when they come in all shapes and sizes and price ranges. So how do you know what to look for when shopping for one? I have listed some of the things you want to look for when shopping for a flat iron:

1) First check if the the plates are ceramic. Ceramic irons are less damaging to the hair and will help control frizz.

2) If you hair is really curly, you want look for narrow plates. The narrow plates will help you reach the difficult spots like around the hair lines, and closer to the scalp. The most common size is a 1-inch, which will get you as close as possible.

3) You also want to look for a flat iron with temperature control. Since not all the hair is the same, not all hair needs the highest temperature of heat to straighten. For fine hair, you want to start with a lower temperature, and for thicker and coarse hair you can go to a higher temp. But you need to find a flat iron that will allow you to control the temperature.

4) One more perk I like in a flat iron, is a turn-off timer. If you are the type of person that is always rushing out the door, make sure you find a flat iron that will automatically turn off when it is not in use for a certain amount of time.

Finding a good flat iron is tough and usually an investment, so make sure you research the ones available on the market to find your perfect flat iron.

What’s not to love about Control Force Firm Hair Spray?

aveda control sprayI’ve always had a problem with hair spray. It’s usually flaky, never holds my style or smells bad. But, Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hairspray provides maximum hold, control, 24-hour humidity resistance, with a net zero impact on the environment and above all, smells good.

I absolutely love that with this product I can still brush through hair. The hair keep its style, doesn’t flake, and keeps a nice strong hold. No matter if you have curly hair, straight, or wavy, Control Force is a great way to keep your style looking great and lasting longer. The spray also helps fight frizz and prevent static with a fast drying flake resistant formula.

It is best to apply this product about 10 inches from your hair and try not to stay in one spot for too long. Once again, you won’t regret investing in this prodcut–it’s optimized sprayer provides a fine mist and ensures a controlled application.

The Fascination Begins

All of us come from different routes that converge into one at beauty school. It doesn’t matter where you come from but rather where you are now and what you’re doing with your time. The cosmetology program at the Cinta Aveda Institute has students from every walk of life, age and cultural background under one roof united by their obsession with hair. At Cinta Aveda, you have the opportunity to live in the lively city of San Francisco where you can find different tastes in style–from square to edgey.

When you start, you are investing your time (1600 hours) and money (more or less $25,000) into the cosmetology program. This is because somehow at some point in your life, you’ve became interested in doing hair. It really doesn’t matter whether you liked torturing your baby sister by holding her down to cut her hair (sounds dangerous) or experimented on your own tresses by bleaching the hell out of them and then dying it green only then to watch it slowly fall off your scalp.After you have mastered the baby steps such as holding a blowdryer correctly (yes it feels awkward at first) and finding the courage to snip off more than an inch with your new “shears” (not scissors) from your beloved dollhead which seems to become an extension of your own fashion sense (mine has black nail polish lips and funky do’s on the regular), then you’re ready to take on the human race. WHile it all sounds short and sweet, boy is that not true.

I am currently 1100 hours in. At first it went by slowly. Because of my short attention span, I found the theoretical part needed my extra attention. When it comes to safety of the client and hygiene standadrds, one needs to uphold and can’t afford to let a short attention span get in the way! Surprisingly, I found the material quite interesting, and soon my short attention span syndrome went away. Once you start taking clients a whole new world opens up to you, and it’s then that you realize that you are meant to do hair. Otherwise, you might know at that moment that beauty school is just not your thing. Here are a few images I took of the cuts and color I have done.

3 Tips for Choosing the Right Blow Dryer

May 20, 2015

3 Tips for Choosing the Right Blow DryerChoosing the right blow dryer can make the biggest difference in how fast you can dry and style your hair. Not all blow-dryers are created equal, so here are a 3 tips to consider when investing in a good blow-dryer.

1.) Make sure you are buying something with ceramic or tourmaline technology. Tourmaline is crystal, which helps smooth the hair and fight frizz. It also helps your hair retain moisture.

2.) Wattage! Most people don’t realize the difference between a high and a low wattage blow-dryer, and how a high wattage dryer can make a difference for your hair. 1800 watts is great for thinner hair, however for thicker or frizzy hair you want to look for something with at least 3000. It will cut down the styling time in half and reduce the risk of hair damage.

3.) Attachments! If you like to style your hair at home with your blow-dryer, having a nozzle attachment will make your blow-drys give off that just-stepped-out-of-the-salon look. Or if you have curly hair, a diffuser will give your curls more control and bounce than compared to letting your curls air dry.

And don’t forget, no matter which blow-dryer you end up purchasing, remember to pick one that at least has heat protection!

Top Products To Use For Getting the Perfect Pomp

Pompadour Poof haircutThe pompadour has definitely made a comeback in the last couple of years and it requires products that are going to provide a lot of support and hold.

The first product you want to use is Aveda Men’s pomade, which is the most essential. Once the wet hair is blow-dried to a state of 100% dryness, take a healthy scoop of pomade with one finger and run through the hair in all directions until the pomade is evenly distributed. The hair is now ready to be sculpted into the pomp shape by using any grooming comb.

For extra flatness on the sides, another great product I recommend is to use Aveda Control Paste. It is dime-sized to help literally paste the hair flat.

To finish your perfect pomp, I then recommend spraying Aveda Air Control all over to set the hair.

The relationship of these three products is seamless when executing this style not just functionally, but also aromatically, providing a fresh scent of spearmint and leaving the client feeling ready to go.

Men’s Hair Care

Aveda's Men's Care Products

Let’s face it, most men are clueless, when it comes to anything beauty or hair-related.

So here are some useful tips and tricks that every guy should have in his hair care arsenal. These are the products you need, fellas!

The first product you need is a good daily shampoo. The Aveda Men’s Pure-Formance Shampoo is great for daily use to exfoliate your scalp and keep it healthy and flake-free. It is infused with 100 percent naturally derived walnut shells and jojoba beads.

The next product you need is a conditioner and you can pair your shampoo with the Aveda Men’s Pure-Formance Conditioner to keep your hair soft and moisturized. This conditioner is proven by 72 percent of users to leave your hair feeling less greasy and oily. 62 percent of people have also found that it leaves their scalp feeling less irritable and itchy.

Now on to styling. I have two favorite products when it comes to Men’s styling, Control Paste and Brilliant Humectant Pomade. Before deciding on the right styling product for you, assess your needs. Do you like to accentuate your curls, smooth out frizz, have strong hold, or use a product that’s light and flexible? The Brilliant Humectant Pomade is great for curly hair or defining your style and adding shine, while the Control Paste is perfect for all hair types and has a matte finish with a strong but natural looking hold.

Always Bring a Picture!

Salon Cartoon

The communication between stylist and client is of vital importance. How can you get exactly what you want if you and your stylist aren’t on the same page? Being on the same page starts with a really thorough consultation, and often, that begins with you.

Always bring a picture in of what you have in mind for your hair. This provides the perfect starting point. And it lets you know exactly what can be done in that visit. Sometimes, when you want a completely new color, it may take a couple of trips to the salon to achieve that. The best way of knowing where to start with your hair is if you have a picture of what you want your end result to be.

It also lets your stylist know exactly what you have in mind for styling it, and it allows them to let you know if they think it is something that can be realistically achieved for your hair type and for the time you typically allot yourself for doing your hair every day.

Never be afraid of being specific. Most stylists prefer it when a client knows exactly what they want. Have a good idea of what it is you want, but also be open to suggestions. No two hair styles, cuts, or colors are the same. What works on one person may not be what’s best for you.

In the end, it’s always best to bring a picture!

Always bring a picture to the Salon

Food Used for Beauty

One of the most surprising things I learned while in school is how food can be used in your skincare regimen.

  • Tea: Cold compresses made out of tea bags can relieve pain and reduce redness from a sunburn and calm down allergic reactions. Earl Grey tea bags are great for the eye area. The caffeine helps to shrink blood vessels underneath the skin and eliminate darkness around the eye area. Spray cool green tea onto your face twice a day to draw out impurities, shrink large pores, and get a healthy glow.
  • Lemon: For brighter, softer skin, use fresh lemon juice on any area of your body, including the knees, elbows, and face to brighten up and soften your skin. Make a moisturizing mask for dry skin by mixing equal amounts of honey, lemon, and olive oil. Apply the mixture to dry areas on the skin and allow it to dry for about 10 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Take a lemon and slice it in half, rub the juice all over your face, and wait five minutes before rinsing it off with cold water.
  • Lemons have antibacterial properties, making them a perfect blackhead fix. Blackheads are caused by clogged pores, and the acid from the lemons helps to exfoliate the skin.
  • Coconut Oil: For softer, smoother, shiny hair, simple apply coconut oil throughout your hair, then go to bed and rinse out the following morning. Coconut oil can also be used as a moisturizer or lotion on rough spots.

I Feel Disconnected

A hair trend that has been evolving over the last couple of years among the fashion forward is reaching a nexus as masses of men confidently let go of blended hair, transitioning to a far bolder and edgy disconnected look. This has laid way to a number of styling possibilities, maintaining options to dress it up, or down. Regardless of how it is worn, this style seems to represent a kind of collision of the popular resurgence of Don Draper-esque high and tights and DYI-ness of today’s younger culture. While shaving the sides of one’s head is not difficult, sculpting it into something of style and substance is quite a bit more.

This is an exciting looking way to creative and interesting variations.
Strip of Men's Hairstyles
Now wrap your attention around the interesting and somewhat unlikely evolution of this look: the top knot.

What happens when a style grows out? Well, for men’s hair, it’s typically a haircut, or a trim perhaps. It’s the hinge on which our business rests. But in the last year, an interesting look—the top knot—seems to have gained popularity, and not just among the trend-setters and hipsters of our city’s streets. Top knots are being spotted everywhere, abiding by a kind of natural law that if the hair reaches then the knot is fair game. Top knots are appearing in all shapes and forms, from short stem-like sprouts, to elegantly crafted chignons. Many men are opting to tap their creative/effeminate bone to perpetuate this style.

It has been interesting to see this look evolve from what I believe to be a pseudo-throwback, the high and tight to a kind of hybrid of masculine and feminine. Will it last? Time will tell. But one thing is for sure: it’s knot for everyone.

The Importance of Customized Salon Hair Color

Good Hair ColorIn the age of Pinterest and Instagram, it’s hard to tell if the hair you’re looking at in a picture is gorgeous because someone went to a genius colorist, or if it’s gorgeous because someone likes to go a little heavy on the photo filters.

You can guarantee breathtaking hair color for yourself by going to an experienced colorist who takes pride in the art they create on the canvas that is your hair.

If you’ve ever been to a hair salon before, there’s no doubt you’ve heard stylists talking about how awful drug store hair color can be for you hair. It’s not an unfounded claim! Drug store hair color is something you have to hope works. I just feel like you should know your hair color is going to look the way you want it to, not just hope that it does. The only way to absolutely guarantee that 90% of the time is to get your color at the salon.

There is no knowing the exact amount of hydrogen and ammonia being used in store-bought hair color. When you get a color service done at the salon, however, they can tell you the exact amounts of all ingredients being used. This is essential information if you know that you have allergies, or are particularly sensitive to certain chemicals commonly used in any artificial hair color.

Health and safety benefits aside, it’s important to get your color services done at a salon because of the quality of the experience. If you want to look like you have expensive hair color, but only want to pay $7.00, you’re going to go walking around looking like you have seven dollar hair. Most people don’t trust themselves to cut their own hair if they know that they don’t know the science behind hair cutting. Why should hair color be treated any differently?

Leave the hair coloring to the people who know it best!

Products That Deposit Color with Every Use

A great way to maintain your hair color, and keep it looking fresh and vibrant, is by using products that deposit color with every use. Each time you use one of these conditioners, it deposits color and tones the hair.

Aveda carries a number of products that work with every color. Black mulva—for black hair, blue malva—for blue tint, camomile—for blondes, clove—for brown hair, and madder root—for red hair.

  • Black Malva deposits dark brown and black cool tones to the hair, this is great for anyone who wants to cancel out any red hues.
  • Blue Malva is similar in the sense that it is also great for anyone who loves cool tones, but this product is a lot lighter. It’s great for blondes with naturally copper-ish hues that prefer cool or natural tones.
  • Camomile is meant for blondes as well, although this conditioner deposits a gorgeous golden tone with organically grown camomile and calendula.
  • Clove enriches warm tones in brown to dark blonde hair.
  • Madder Root can be used on brunettes or red heads and deposits a red hue to the hair. It also deep conditions and leaves the hair feeling softer and more manageable.

These products are the perfect way to keep your hair looking shiny, soft and vibrant in-between each salon visits. They’re also great for anyone who can’t come in every six weeks and likes to spread out their appointments to every eight weeks.
