Put Your Flat Irons Up and Prepare For Battle!

We all get excited for the beautiful weather and all the other great things Summer brings, but our hair on the other hand, doesn't feel the same. The only thing the Summer weather brings our hair is humidity with a side of frizz. Well ladies, from now on, Summer will only bring good things for you and your hair through a Ceramic or Tourmaline Flat Iron! Issue of frizzy ugly hair, that has plagued us for years and years is finally over, after many dollars spent and countless product disappointments. Ceramic and Tourmaline Flat Irons have answered our prayers, and no you do not need to spend a fortune to get one! So tell your hair to relax, because the war against frizz is finally over, and we won!

After purchasing countless Flat Irons over the years, in search for one that actually does what it is supposed to, my search has finally ended, and my hair is frizz free, even in the humidity! Ceramic and Tourmaline Flat Irons have answered solved our life long battle with humidity and freeze. Not just any Flat Iron will give you the results you desire, so when choosing a Ceramic Flat Iron make sure you choose one that is ceramic throughout, and not just ceramic plated. A real Ceramic Flat iron will conduct heat better and more evenly. Ceramic plates penetrate the center of the hair shaft, allowing you to get the same results with less heat (and less damage). Tourmaline is so effective because it has properties that make it ideal for flat iron plates. It creates negative ions that help combat frizz, making this combination especially good for really difficult hair.

In order to win the war on frizz, it takes a little more then simply purchasing the right tools, you also need to know how to use your weapons! Here are some helpful hints so you can get the best results possible:
  • Never iron damp hair, hair should be completely dry before ironing. Moisture creates steam that is far too hot and can lead to burned hair.
  • Always use your Flat Iron on clean hair. Applying heat to hair that has products and dirt in it is doing nothing more than baking these old products and dirt in!
  • Clip your hair up and start with the hair at the nape of your neck. Comb the section thoroughly, and do small sections. The smaller the section, the more evenly the heat is applied and the fewer passes you will need to make. Start 1 inch from the root and make a slow, steady pass without stopping. When that section is done, take the next section (about 1 inch) out of the clip and repeat.

Baliage - Adding Professional Hair Painting the Menu

Baliage or Balayage, is a highlighting technique where powder bleach cream is painted directly onto clean, styled hair with a brush in small sections. It is widely favored because it creates very natural-looking highlights that grow out without developing a noticeable and obvious root. Hugely popular with models, starlets and famous beauties, Balayage has received a lot of attention in beauty and style magazines in recent years due to it's popularity among Hollywood's A-List. Due to this increase in demand, many salons have decided to add balayage to their service menu. Many salons even tout "Master Colorists" that have a perfected Balayage technique, marketing them as artisans of the craft and luring a new client base to the salon.

Balayage emerged as an innovative hair coloring technique in Paris in the 1970s. The word is French for “to sweep,” a reference to the way in which the color is applied. Hair is painted by hand with a brush using cream bleach as the medium. Applied in a sweeping process, the highlights are painted on by hand in root to the ends of the hair in small strands. The art of the Balayage technique is paint lightly at the root and heaver as you reach the ends. This creates a rich but natural highlight on hair that looks like hair was "bleached at the beach". As the hair grows, roots will be less obvious for the first eight weeks because a thinner amount of color is applied to the root.
Performing balayage is no more time consuming that foil highlights. In fact, some skilled Baliage artisans can do a full head in about 2 hours.
