No.7 Bonding Oil By Olaplex Great For Dry Damaged Hair

This is a good product to use on any and all hair colored customers, and recommend it as well also.  A highly-concentrated, weightless styling oil that repairs damaged and compromised hair. Dramatically increases shine, softness, color vibrancy, and manageability. Minimizes fly aways and frizz while restoring healthy appearance and texture.  Can be used daily on wet and dry hair, or before styling with heat.  I’ve used all kinds of oils and products to help manage my customers frizz and hair texture. The No7 is by far the best product I’ve ever used.  Amazing how little goes a long way.  If you want a product that will help your hair get healthy again, you cant go wrong with Olapex.

Also a tip for Hairdressers, Use No.7 Bonding Oil on the hair prior to color services to tame fly aways during the coloring process!  My favorite part, is the hair is getting a mini Bond Building treatment, while giving you the colorist the manageability they need for flawless application.

Tips For Your Skin Color

What is your skin type like? Are you oily, combination skin or normal? Depending on what your skin type is and what kinds of needs you are looking for depends on the formula to look for. Usually when shopping online for foundations, you can click the description of the product and it can tell you who the foundation is best for. When you go shopping and a sales person will say something like “Who it’s for: Normal to oily skin.”  which is super helpful when seeing if a formula works for you. You can also look for shade ranges that offer added skincare benefits or mention how it is formulated to wear on the skin. When shopping for foundations look for a range that offers not only a wide color range but also undertones – like warm, neutral or cool.

An undertone and skin tone are two different things to remember when shopping for a foundation. Under the skin is your undertone, an easy way to remember. During the seasons, especially summer or winter when you may be more tan or fair, your skin tone can change. But, your undertone never does. Cool undertones contain more blue. Neutral undertones are versatile and can wear neutral, warm or cool foundations and are between yellow and blue. Warm undertones are a little more on the yellow side.

How do you know if you have cool, neutral or warm undertones? Check your veins. If you have purple or blue veins, you’re cool. Blue or green, then you’re neutral. And green or olive veins, when you have a warm undertone. Now that you’ve got your undertone figured out, lets tackle the skin tone.

Always Be Honest To Your Hairdresser

There’s a reason why when you enter the salon that your hairdresser will ask you all these seemingly unnecessary questions… “What shampoo and conditioner are you using at home?” “Oh, L’Oréal Professional or Paris?” What we’re really wanting to know is: WHAT PRODUCTS ARE YOU USING ON YOUR HAIR BECAUSE WE SMELLED IT THE MINUTE YOU SAT DOWN!
Supermarket products are quite literally coming under fire lately for causing almost irreversible damage to the undiscerning consumer. We, as stylists don’t try and steer you to use professional salon quality products on your hair to meet salon targets, but because we genuinely care deeply for your hair’s health. If we’ve spent 3 hours on your personalized color, we want to ensure you’re using the correct shampoos/conditioners suited to your hair, to keep that sexy balayage looking fresh until you’re next in our chair. Think about it – you wouldn’t wash your Gucci dress in Morning Fresh dish washing liquid, you’ll send that bad gal to the best dry cleaners in town!
Here’s a few reasons WHY we’re so flipping’ adamant on getting you guys off supermarket and chemist brands:
1. They cause hazardous side effects during the coloring process
2. The build-up of parabens and silicone’s that make contact with bleach or hi-lift colors react and can cause the hair to literally melt and turn into a steamy liquid
3. Can cause scalp burns and hair breakage
4. Strips color
5. Removes hydration from hair therefore resulting in color fading
We really encourage you to be as honest as you can with us when we’re consulting prior to your hair service. Let us know if you’ve changed up at-home products recently or have changed up any medications – which can also result in a chemical reaction… because, honestly, within 5 minutes we’ll find out! Because your hair will be SMOKING.. And not the good kind.

Trim Your Hair

Raise your hand if this scenario sounds familiar: You cut a sleek lob as the temps got cooler, and you really loved it for a minute, but now you’re ready for something new. Suddenly, you’re imagining long, flowing strands that will trail behind you in the wind on beach this summer. In other words: It’s time to grow out your hair, but can the whole process hurry up already?

By and large, the rate of growth for your hair depends on genetics, but you can expect around a quarter- to a half-inch growth per month. Giving hair a trim won’t help it to lengthen any faster per se, but doing so will save the hair from splitting and causing breakage that then translates into inches off your progress report. There’s a fine line between giving your hair a chance to grow some length and letting it go too long before that length needs to be cut off. If you get your hair cut too often during the grow-out process, you are just cutting off the new length.

I always tell my clients to come in every 12 to 16 weeks if they’re trying to grow they’re hair out, but adds a caveat to this recommendation. There are exceptions to every rule. The less stress you are putting your hair through on a daily basis, the longer you can go between trims. So, the more you bleach, color or utilize styling tools (including your blow-dryer) the more frequent your trims should become.

Your hair may not flow down to your knees by summer, but if you’re diligent (and lucky) you’ll get a few inches worth of growth by the time the season’s first flower-crown-appropriate events commence.

Joseph Kellner Hair Styling Tips For Miraculous Recovery® Serum

joseph kellner

Excellent product, everything I have tried from the John Frieda hair care line has been a thumbs up.  Great styling product for the consumer. And as a professional I thought I would try all his smoothing products. And to no avail they are a thumbs up for me. And I have also moved them in my salon and took a lot of so-called styling product made solely for the professional out.  Namely because they are better than the salon made product lines.  Miraculous Recovery Serum is very good for blow drying the hair and when I use it also on fine hair it will give the texture some body, especially when using a ceramic brush. All other types of textures I have no problem using the product to blow-out the hair, This product also gives the hair a incredible shine.

fe-miraculous-recovery-serumIntense repair formula visibly transforms dry, heat-damaged, frizzy hair and seals split ends. Apply to wet or dry hair.  Comb through the hair and proceed to blow dry. I only use 3-4 pumps of the product and it pretty well saturates the hair.  Very good product to use at the home or salon.  Avoid applying directly to roots. Use more or less depending on hair length and thickness and also porosity.  If the hair is over processed I would not recommend this hair care product. Style as desired.   I give it a thumbs up!

Recommended For: Split Ends, Dry Hair, Color or Heat-Damaged Hair, Moderate Frizz, Fine Hair, Chronic Frizz, Curly Hair, Straight Hair, Brittle or Broken Hair.

Hairdresser Joseph Kellner Easy Hair Color Tips

JosephKellner.com

If you already have a tinge of brown on your hair, as some girls are born with, and have a fair complexion, then go for red streaks on your hair, you will look awesome.

The same goes for people having a darker skin tone, using burgundy or brown will ruin your looks for good. Go for streaks as in Dark red or go for some blond streaks. It’s best to go for you, not to go in for full hair color, since your skin tone is darker.

If you do have a dark skin tone, lets say very dark like African Americans, then and still want to go in for full hair color, or lets say you suffer from grey hair and want full coverage, then choose a subtle blonde color , which is between brown and blonde but not total blond, a suppressed blond.

If you have wheat complexion, well we Indians love playing with our hair colors, you can do streaks of red/ or / blue on your hair, or go in for a burgundy color or even light brown.

The brightest of all the colors is Red. If you are thinking of coloring your hair red then you might as well streak it and not color it totally. That works perfectly.

If you are extremely pale then don’t go for black or very dark hair color. It will make you look paler than you already are. Dark hair can also make you look older than you are if out on pale skin toned people.

People with hazel, green and brown eyes can go for warm overtones in colors. Golden blonde, golden brown and burgundy are some of them.

People with blue or gray eyes can go for cool overtones in hair color. Platinum, ash blonde, ash brown, blonde colors will suit these people more.

If you are thinking of dying hair into non-natural colors such as purple, blue, and green, think about how this might clash with your current wardrobe and jewellery. Also, it should go with the dress code at work or school.

Not At Home Please.

JosephKellner.com

If you want to go from dark brown to a lightest light blonde get thee to a hair salon. Don’t try this at home.  That said, many friends and beauty editors I know turn to the box when coloring their hair. These days boxed color can be gorgeous. But you have to do it right, go to a salon. Here are the biggest mistakes women make when doing their color themselves.

They Bet Their Hair Color on the Picture on the Box

Pictures on hair color boxes can be deceiving. Go by the color swatches and the descriptions instead. Most boxes will call out the color (blonde, brown, black and red) and the shade of that color (light, medium and dark). There might also be mention of the tone (golden or ashy).  Go to the salon please.

They Try to Do It Themselves

Try as you might, it’s virtually impossible for you to see the back of your head. This is why I recommend enlisting a friend, family member or even your boyfriend or husband to help you color your hair. The process will go so much more smoothly.  You get what you pay for my friends.

They Leave the Color on Too Long

Always set a timer for your hair. Many women end up leaving the color on their hair too long and end up with over-processed hair.  Over-processed hair is very unattractive.

They Rinse Their Hair Out in a Sink

Kitchen and bathroom sinks don’t have enough water pressure to rinse out the hair chemicals completely, which can damage hair. Instead, step into the shower and rinse your hair thoroughly.

They Don’t Read the Instructions

Box color has been around forever, so they’ve gotten the directions down. If they didn’t, women wouldn’t buy again. Just because you’ve dyed your hair before at home with one brand doesn’t mean another brand of hair color stays on the same amount of time.

Always read the directions before proceeding. Let the hair colorist do it.

They Run Out of Product

If you have thick, curly or long hair, you run the risk of running out of product as you apply it. Always buy two boxes of hair color.  A salon atmosphere has everything for your hair coloring service, including wine.

They’re Commitment-Phobic

Some women have what I call “Hair Color ADHD.” Like singles who are commitment-phobic, the minute they find a hair color they like they’re ready to try something new. Finding a color you love is like winning the lottery. You could be making a huge mistake trying a different color or different brand.

They Choose the Wrong Color Tone for Their Complexion

Most of us would like to think we are both warm and cool. But when it comes to hair color, it’s important to know which one you really are (and it has nothing to do with your fantastic personality).

They’re Unhappy With All-Over Color

If you look closely at the hair of a child or a woman whose hair you absolutely love, you’ll notice there are many shades of color. All-over color from a box is basically a wash of one color. If one-dimensional hair is not what you’re after, you might be better off getting highlights at a salon.

They’re Brunettes Trying to Go Blonde or Red

Again, anything more than 2 shades darker or lighter than your natural hair color, should be done in a salon. Taking black or brown hair to blonde or red is absolutely possible, but is usually a complicated process that could involve more than one visit to the salon.

To determine if blonde or red is right for you, try on wigs first to see if the color washes you out or enhances your look. And then head to the salon to get the job done. Don’t pick up a box. Women who have red in their skin and burn easily should stick to cool shades described on the box as “ash,” “beige” or “cool brown.” Warmer colors will only bring out the redness in your skin. Some women fall somewhere in the middle and can look good in a wide range of warm and cool shades.
