Models Prep Your Lips Before Your Shoot!

One thing you don’t want during your photo-shoot is have your lipstick move all over.  And when you place your lipstick on, just like when you prime your face for your foundation. You must prep your lips. MAC Prep and Prime Lip is what I would recommend and go to for all my photo-shoots. A color free base to wear under lipstick. Adds light moisture, smooths and refines the lips. Improves the appearance of applied lip products.

There is no greasy feel to the product and just apply it while you are doing your foundation and then just gently pat your lips before applying your lip color.

  • Reduces lipstick feathering
  • Provides long-term hydration
  • Fragrance-free
  • Oil-free
  • Dermatologist tested

A lot of woman will place a chap stick on there lips to prime them. Which is a NO-NO. This will give you a oily appearance even when you pat the chap stick off. And the lipstick will not adhere to the lips. Don’t try this method use a primer. Another way of taking of dry flakes from the lips is use some scotch tape to the lips and this will also gently pull off the flaky skin. Also if you use a dark colored lipstick to dry lips, it will appear darker in certain areas because of flaking. So always use a primer for the lips.  This will also hydrate the lips also.

  • Apply a thin coating over entire lip area and over lip edges.
  • Follow with lip color.
  • If desired, line lips.

Go To A Professional Hairdresser!

A new customer contacted me from my website josephkellner.com

She asked me could she make an appointment and she did. Her hair color was 70% grey and on a level 5-6 on the warm side.  The rest of her hair from mid-shaft to ends was a dirty blonde and very, very dry. Her hair was naturally wavy and with medium thickness. She asked me to cancel out the red base she got from using a product recommended for her hair to lift and tone to a level 6 cool. I believe that when a person goes into a store such as Sally’s you don’t get a professional answer. For one thing the clerks are paid horribly and usually they are a beauty school drop out. So having said that I told her I could do the job. for her and this would be a corrective hair color service. $$$$ Here we go.

Simply starting with just a simple foil highlight to help reduce the red copper on her roots, and also touching the past foil highlight she had done. I used also a low light indiscriminately all over which was a level 7 neutral. Finishing the foil light I proceeded to place a level 7-8 blue-green on the roots and the new growth of the hair. Mind you she was a home hair-color job, where she got the color and advice from a sally’s employee. I processed the hair for 35 minutes.

We proceeded to cut the hair a good amount, and then we did our blow out. I recommended the Shea Moisture Shampoo to her for her hair type and condition.

DRY, DAMAGED OR TRANSITIONING HAIR
Our Sulfate-Free shampoo helps to give moisture to dry damaged or over-processed hair. Perfect for transitioning chemically treated hair to natural. So the customer was happy and make sure if you go to Sally’s don’t ask a clerk about hair color.  Go to a professional Hairdresser!

Great Formula For Blow Drying And Glamour Sets

Joseph Kellner

 

Every Friday in the salon after 3:00 in the afternoon, I have a promotion called, “Bring Your Black Dress And I Will Do The Rest:. This promotion is for the lady’s who will be going out to Black Tie, Private Party’s, and Charity Events.

The client will come in with their gowns or dress’ and I will style or set and do their make up. It is quit popular and allows me to try out different formula’s for the setting or styling of the hair. And also new and popular makeup products. Very popular service, which we have extended to Saturdays after 3:00 in the afternoon.  The last few weeks I have been using a formula with KIN Cosmetics which has given me success.  I have taken a quarter size of the KINSTYLE GELLIN with a quarter size of the KINSTYLE POTION CREAM and WELLAH! I have achieve a sculpting lotion similar to the Paul Mitchel sculpting lotion when it first came out. Excellent hold and will not leave the hair rough or dry feeling. If you are setting the hair you will bet a lot of volume and the wave will stay in for a long time. This product formulation will compliment the hair design.  This is a great setting formula and also for everyday blow drying the hair. I have used the Potion Creme by itself and I was not so convinced about it on fine hair, and a tip don’t get it near the roots. Just the mid shaft and ends. Potion Creme will give you a soft feel and a decent finish but adding the two products together is a winner.  I am not really one to add and add products to a finish. I believe a lot of your work should be in the hair design, if the design is accurate then you will not need a lot of finishing products. But these two products together and you have hit a Grand Slam. Also when you add the irons to the hair you will see tremendous shine.

Hair Stylist in Orlando loves Dry Shampoo By VS!

 

10672193_101522014 Joseph Kellner Photo-shoots.64429896750_5247921730790760419_ngoood Getting hair ready for a photo-shoot is very important. Such as Hair, Hair Color, Makeup and Setting of the Hair Design. If you have dry, fine hair and has no body in it. I would like to recommend Victoria’s Secret Dry Shampoo for you hair. This product will give fine, limp hair a extraordinary amount of volume. For photo shoots it is a live saver. I also like to curl the hair and break up the set and spray just a little on the root are and the beachy wave look is easily achieved.  We all know as editorial stylists that by a 5-6 hour shoot the hair is pretty lifeless. But this product will give you a extended time to work during the shoot. Love it!!!

I’ve purchased this multiple times now, it’s amazing! It helps matte the hair and bring volume to oily, second day hair! It’s especially useful if you accidentally used a little too much oily product in your hair. It has a light fresh smell of the “Body by Victoria” fragrance. If your nozzle gets clogged, try running it under hot water. If it breaks after you just bought it (its happened to me) just return it to your VS store (with or without the receipt!) and exchange it for a new one! It’s in their return policy.

Best Haircare Advice In Orlando, Florida 32836 Joseph Kellner

If you reach for a curling iron, flat-iron, or other heat-styling tools daily, learn how to protect your hair. Using a heat-protectant spray will save your locks from turning frizzy, dry, and brittle.

I first learned about protecting my hair from heat from my wedding hair stylist. Because I chose a hairstyle full of curls, this product saved my long hair from unwanted damage. Since the wedding, I’ve used the spray to not only protect my hair, but also to make my curls last all day and night. Here’s how I recommend to do the process!

Prep Your Hair – If you’ve just washed your hair, dry it. Use a towel to blot out the water, and then use a blow dryer on a low, cool setting. Although this process isn’t speedy, it will do less damage to your hair. Cool air smooths the cuticle, leaving you with shinier tresses.

Make Small Sections – Next, thoroughly comb your hair and divide out the first small section to style. Whether you’re using a curling iron, flat-iron, crimper, or other heat-styling tool, you’ll want to apply it to one small section of hair at a time.

Hold the Hair – Place the hair in the heat styling tool  and slide it to the end of the hair so you can hold the hair away from your head. Spray a fine mist of heat protectant along the length of the hair. Keep the bottle of spray at least 12 inches away from the hair so the spray isn’t concentrated on one small area of hair. I recommend a dry lightweight aerosol hair spray.

Style the Hair – Now, style your hair. Twist the barrel of the curling iron to loop the hair onto itself, or pull the flat-iron slowly down the length of the hair. After styling that one section, repeat this spray-and-style process until you’ve finished. If you’re creating curls, leave them intact until you’re done using the heat-styling tools.

Set the Look – Finally, spray a fine mist of hairspray over the heat-styled areas. Now, use your fingers or a pick to break apart the curls or blend straightened hair. Finish the look by adding hair accessories if desired. Usually, a final mist of hairspray is unneeded because heat-protectant sprays add rigidity to the hair.

Orlando Hair Salon Advice on Frizzy & Dry Hair from Joseph Kellner

 Dry hair is a common problem for many people, especially those with thick or curly hair. Shampooing too frequently, using harsh shampoos and styling products, coloring and perming are all harmful to your hair. In addition to that, you expose your hair to chlorine, sun, wind and heat. Factor in, too, the damage you get from hair dryers and curling irons. Proper care and regular conditioning can fix even severely dry and frizzy hair. 

Shampoo Less, Condition More

Avoid shampooing your hair more than twice each week unless your scalp is dirty or sweaty. Shampoo contributes to dryness by stripping away the natural oils produced by your scalp. Choose shampoos and conditioners that contain humectants to lock in moisture. Deep condition hair at least once per week. To reduce frizziness, rinse your hair with cold water, which makes the hair cuticle stay flat so that hair appears smoother.

Take Care of Your Hair

Improper styling can increase dryness and lead to broken hair and scalp irritation. Do not rub your wet hair with a towel after showering. Instead, wrap a towel around your hair and leave it in place for 10 to 15 minutes to absorb excess water. Once your hair is partially dry, detangle it using a comb or your fingers. If you must blow your hair dry, do so on low heat and in a downward motion to reduce frizz. Avoid using flat irons and curling irons whenever possible, and choose styling products with sunscreen to protect your hair from sun damage.

Avoid Over-Processing

Over-processing with hair coloring and perms is a major cause of dry hair. To avoid chemical damage caused by perms and coloring, use hair products without peroxide and ammonia and wait as long as possible between processing. Newer hair coloring products contain conditioners that may actually benefit dry and frizzy hair.

Use Essential Oil

Essential oils can restore moisture to dry hair and help control frizz. The Joseph Kellner website recommends Argania oil for use on dry hair, as it contains essential fatty acids to attract and retain moisture in the hair’s cortex. Apply one to two drops of oil to dry hair, using the palms of your hands. Start at the ends of the hair, where dryness is usually most pronounced, and work your way up toward the roots. If your hair is too oily following application, you have used too much oil. Remove excess oil by rinsing with apple cider vinegar after shampooing. Avoid using non-essential oils on dry hair, as these coat the hair and actually interfere with moisture absorption.
