So many! Where do we start?

Are you using the right tools to achieve the right style??

From time to time we all get bored of our hair but aren’t in a bold enough mood to change the cut or color (yes- I am a hairstylist and this happens to me sometimes too). When this is the case, I like to recommend a STYLING change!

A STYLING a change will offer a new or updated look to something you already know you like without a need to change the cut or color. Most of the time, a haircut can achieve a “double-identity” (thank you Sam Villa) and be styled straight or curly or wavy or up or down…the list goes on.

I have quite the collection of tools myself and I find it helps keep me trying new things. Here are some tips and tricks I offer to all my clients.

For curls or waves:

To achieve wave or curls I like to use my 1″ Hot Tools curling iron or a 3/4″ styling wand. The curling iron offers a more uniform curl and the wand offers more of a soft wave. I move through my hair in sections so I don’t miss any pieces. To add a little a texture, I like to use a few sprays of L’Oreal Texture spray and finish with a little bit of Architexture wax. Then I scrunch the hair in my hands and go!

For sleek, straight:

For a sleek look, I like to use a large round brush and blow dry. Remember when sectioning your hair for this, don’t take a section too big for your brush. You don’t want the brush getting tangled up in your hair! Sometimes I use a flat iron to ensure this sleek style all day. With this style, I like to apply Alfaparf Extraordinary All-in-one fluid with a drop of Alfaparf Crystalli Liquidi after detangling my hair while it’s still damp.

So go ahead and grab your tools — it’s time to experiment and try something new!
