Hair Care Resolutions
Ever wish there were more hours in the day? When your to-do list just keeps getting longer, it seems that hair care and maintenance is one of the first things to go. But it doesn’t have to be that way! This year, resolve to make keeping your look sharp a priority.
If you’ve resolved to try something new this year, but you’re not sure what to do, ask your stylist. Color can be a fun and versatile way of changing your look without doing something too drastic. Our stylists are licensed cosmetologists and knowledgeable industry professionals who have been trained to consult with you and help you determine which colors, tones, and techniques will work best for your hair type, skin tone, and eye color. (Something you definitely won’t find in the drugstore aisle.)
It’s also important to choose a color service that will work with your commitment level for maintenance and upkeep—like gray blending or highlights vs. all-over color for someone who doesn’t want to come in for a color every six weeks.
No matter if you're going for a whole new style, or just trying to get back to looking like you, the new year is the perfect time to make some hair resoultions.
And if you’ve decided to let your hair grow a little bit, don’t just stop getting your hair cut. Hair grows approximately a half-inch a month, but if your ends don’t seem to be growing longer, it could be due to breakage. Damage and split ends can cause the ends of your hair to break off, negating any monthly growth you may have experienced.
If you come into the salon for regular trims, your stylist can remove a minimal amount—as little as a quarter of an inch—to clean up split ends. This will allow you to preserve the length but remove only the damage. But if the split ends are left to their own devices, the hair will continue to split farther and farther up the hair shaft, and more length will need to be removed in order to get your hair healthy again—and all that time you waited to get a trim will be wasted. So, regular trims (every 6-8 weeks) will help keep your hair healthy and strong as you grow it out.
