Do You Make These Mistakes When Styling Your Curly Hair?

So you’ve spent quite a bit of time shampooing, conditioning, and deep conditioning your curly hair. Now that you’re ready to style it, suddenly it’s a horrible mess!

What just happened?

Let’s back up and take a look at some very common mistakes curly tresses make when styling their hair. We’re betting you’ll find an AHA of your own.

– Don’t flip your head over when washing or styling your hair. This will just cause massive tangles. Can you say, rat’s nest?

– Use products as instructed . Curly hair needs more product because of its drier texture. It the directions say to apply liberally, then do so!

– Define curls with detangling tools like a wide-tooth comb.

– Don’t use too many products . A ton of product just starves hair of natural moisture and creates excessive build up.

– Do incorporate a styling product. You do need a styling product to minimize fuzz and maximize hold. Just don’t go overboard with multiple products.

There’s no need to spend a lot of time on your hair without getting the results you want. These simple, tried and true techniques work.

Try them and then let us hear from you☺

Did you know that natural and organic salon quality products cost you

as little as $0.11 cents per ml, last twice as long, healthier for your

hair, skin and body and DON’T cost the earth?

Why risk using chemical filled “cheap and nasty” products when all

they do is cause side effects such as scalp disorders, silicon coated hair

follicles (feeling like you’ve been swimming in chlorine), hair loss, and

many more effects harmful for your health and harmful to the

environment? These products end up costing you a lot more in the

bigger picture!

Ever wonder what it would be like to have a stylist that could easily tell you what the best look would be for you? Well we at Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Berwick’s Best Salon can give you some great advice for a new haircut that would suit your face shape, you too can look like a million dollars – or more if you wish!

First it is most important to determine your face shape.  We have here listed photos and silhouette’s.  If you have difficulty figuring your face shape out, stand in front of a mirror with your hair pulled back in a pony-tail or pulled away from your face, using a dry-erase marker, trace the outline of your face.  Then compare your drawing to the face shapes we have presented here.

If you are looking for a new you this season, why not come down to Allura Hairdressing Boutique and let our professional and friendly staff look after you. 

Oval Face Shape

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

 

Hairstyles to Try

  • Any shape and style can be worn, whether it’s short, long, layered or bobbed.
  • The only thing to consider with an oval face shape is what part of your face you want to accentuate.
  • This is where you can get creative with bangs or how you style your hair everyday

Hairstyles to Avoid

  • The main thing to consider is to not choose hairstyles that hang in your face or eyes.
  • Or hairstyles that just cover over your beautiful face shape

Round Face Shape

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

Hairstyles to Try

  • Hairstyles with height and fullness at the crown will give the illusion of a narrower face shape, particularly those short in length.
  • Longer hairstyles or ones that are kept close to the cheeks with no width will look better.
  • Middle parts are great for creating the illusion of narrow length.
  • No bangs are the ideal as the focus point becomes the bridge of the nose, creating a more oval shape.
  • If bangs are used they should be swept across, or in the case of solid bangs, only where there is substantial height on the top.
  • Short hairstyles are great and do not suffocate small round faces.

Hairstyles to Avoid

  • Hairstyles that add volume through the sides such as chin length bob cuts, straight or kicking out in design.
  • Side parts and heavy straight across bangs create a wider shorter shape and therefore should be avoided at all costs on hairstyles without any height.

Square Face Shape

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

Hairstyles to Try

  • Wispy forward falling hair onto your face will soften yourjaw line.
  • Wearing bangs swept over to one side will create diagonal movement to minimize square shapes.
  • Short to medium length hair will also suit you, especially if the style is rounded in shape or has wispy ends.
  • Styles with height at the crown will also work in your favor.

 

 

Hairstyles to Avoid

  • Avoid blunt bobs, especially sitting at chin length with straight heavy bangs as this will accentuate your jaw line and squareness.
  • Middle parts with solid bangs can also work against you.

Heart Face Shape

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

 

Hairstyles to Try

  • Any textured chin-length hairstyles will suit best.
  • If bangs are wanted make sure that they are side-swept bangs not straight across as blunt cut bangs will only make your face shape shorter and wider.
  • Shoulder length cuts with wispy layers that kick out will also work very well.
  • Height on top will work but only if they belong to shoulder length or longer hairstyles.

 

Hairstyles to Avoid

  • Short, full hairstyles like slicked back looks that emphasize your upper face.
  • Short styles with heavy straight across bangs that create an upside down triangular shape.

Triangle Face Shape

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

 

Hairstyles to Try

  • Layered hairstyles will help balance and soften your prominent jaw line.
  • Styles with layers that taper at the jaw line can also be flattering.

Hairstyles to Avoid

  • Shorter is generally better than longer.
  • Avoid any hairstyle which will draw too much attention to your chin area such as straight solid bob cuts.

Diamond Face Shape

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

 

Hairstyles to Try

  • Hairstyles that add width at the chin area such as chin length bob cuts or shoulder length wispy kicked out looks.
  • Styles that tuck in behind the ears also work well to show off a wonderful cheek bone structure.
  • Hairstyles with straight across bangs will also work to shorten long faces, as will side parts.

 

Hairstyles to Avoid

  • Try and avoid short hairstyles with height on top, particularly ones without bangs.
  • Avoid styles that leave no hair on the neck area or the chin area.
  • Middle parts will add length so they should also be avoided.

Oblong Face Shape

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

 

Hairstyles to Try

  • Styles that are short to medium in length with longer top layers without height are best suited such as wedge and graduated bob cuts.
  • Chin and shoulder length looks that turn under or kick out also work very well to add width.
  • Straight across bangs with side parts work best.
  • Layered styles in medium and long lengths that add body in with wavy and curly textures are great for softening the straight long lines of oblong face shapes.

 

Hairstyles to Avoid

  • Hairstyles that add height at the crown or on top will only lengthen your face.
  • Middle parts.
  • The absence of bangs.
  • Wispy chin length styles that have no body or that don’t add width through the sides should also be avoided

We are loving messy chignons at the moment.  If you are looking for a new up-do to try then this is perfect inspiration.  It’s also easier to pull off since it doesn’t have to look so polished.

Try perfecting this with a bit of Delorenzo Texture Spray (Sandstorm)  and Volumising Spray (Amplify), a teasing brush and some bobby pins

For an easy, evening hairstyle you can do yourself, a simple bun is your go-to style. It always looks chic and goes with any outfit.   The bun is perfect if you have fine or medium length hair.

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

The bun or messy chignon can by an elegant style or great for an easy everyday look.  It’s also one of our favourite formal styles. Accessorise with simple button earrings or wear longer chandelier style earrings for a glam finish.  Call into Alllura Hairdressing Boutique and we will be more than happy to create the look you want!!

A French Braid is a variation on the classic three strand braid where you add in hair to each section as you form the braid.

It follows the regular braid (plait) technique where you cross the right strand over the middle and the left over the right, continuing to bring the hair over into the centre.

By adding in hair as you go, this makes the braid hug your head. This allows you to create so many shapes and a huge variety of textures in your hairstyles.

 

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

A Dutch Braid is the reverse of a French braid.

It’s sometimes called an “inside-out” braid or reverse braid.

The technique is the same, except that instead of bringing sections of your braid over and into the centre, you bring them under.

This creates one of the favourite braid styles as you can see the shape of the braid on top, while the sections of added hair sit smoothly underneath.

Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Hair Salon Berwick

Allura Hairdressing Boutique love to create some of the classic braids for that special occasion.

1. Love your hair. I know it seems obvious, but once you acknowledge and understand what type of hair you’ve got, you can start looking after it properly. While you’re in denial about your real hair, it will never look its most beautiful.

2. Choose the right products for your hair. Choose hydrating and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner (like DeLorenzo Prescriptive Range) for dry or curly hair. Choose a volumising shampoo (like DeLorenzo Accentu8) for volume for fine hair. Using the right product for your hair will give you the right results you want.

3. Get a haircut. I believe a haircut can change your life, and it will definitely change your hair. Don’t get attached to your long hair. If the ends are ragged it will look terrible. Beautiful hair has no split ends so get them cut off.

4. Get your shine on. Use a semi-permanent colour (like DeLorenzo soft colour mousse) to add a gloss to your hair.

5. Never heat style without using a protectant. Repeat this mantra and make sure you never damage your hair unnecessarily! Use a heat protectant spray (like DeLorenzo Extinguish) to keep your hair looking its best every time you blowdry or heat style your hair.

6. Treat your hair. Once a week use a deep conditioning mask to help repair and protect your hair from damage caused by styling. Try the Everescents Organic Cinnamon & Patchouli Deep Treatment. It only takes 3 minutes so you can always make time for your hair.

7. Try a new hairstyle. Get out of your ponytail rut and do something different with your hair. Move your part, or try a side braid for a different look. You can do so many things with braids!

Check out these beautiful styles for some inspiration.

How To Color Yourself Younger!

How To Color Yourself Younger!

How To Color Yourself Younger!

How To Color Yourself Younger!

There are two ways to look younger as you get older. And oddly, they seem to be exact opposites: coloring your hair and going grey.

Each requires care and consideration, so let’s look at both of them.

Choosing Grey: If cared for wisely, a head of snowy white hair can be very attractive on a woman. Choose special shampoos and conditioners to keep those lovely locks from turning brittle and yellow. This will also help to brighten your complexion.

Shorter cuts tend to be more stylish on silver foxes. Think Helen Mirren. She looks fabulous! But you’ll notice she’s also kept her hairstyle shorter which is far more flattering.

Color: Coloring cuts down on the natural dryness of grey hair. It also boosts body and adds fullness to thinning hair. Color brightens your eyes and makes your skin more radiant.

Add highlights for more softness. They add dimension, making you look fresh and radiant. Coloring does require touch ups about every four weeks.

And you’ll want to invest in the right shampoos and conditioners to keep hair looking beautiful.

But whatever you choose to do, we’ll be there to help you do it beautifully

Two Questions To Ask Your Stylist Before You Have Your Hair Professionally Colored

Two Questions To Ask Your Stylist Before You Have Your Hair Professionally Colored

Two Questions To Ask Your Stylist Before You Have Your Hair Professionally Colored

If you want to get your hair beautifully colored, you’ve come to the right place! There are two opening questions you and your stylist should discuss before getting started.

How do I know what is the best hair color for me?” Smart question! Hair color that looks the most natural and the prettiest is the one that matches your eye color and skin tone.

For example, want to go blonde? That will work if your natural hair color is a dirty blonde or light to medium brunette.

If your skin tone is cool, as in ivory or ashy, discuss ash or beige tones of blonde. For warmer skin tones like golden brown, creamy beige or café au lait, look to golden or straw hues of blonde.

You can expect us to really question you about this. After all, it is the most important part of creating the perfect look for you!

2. “How do I make my color last?” Before you get your hair colored, make sure you deep condition it. Then, don’t wash your hair for at least 24-48 hours before your scheduled appointment. The natural oils in your hair will help hold the color longer.

Do use a salon shampoo and conditioner designed for color-treated hair.

Got more questions for us? Great! Our passion is to make you look beautiful everyday!

At Allura Hairdressing Boutique – Berwick’s best salon, want our clients to look and feel their absolute best. Embrace your best feature: femininity.  Allura Hairdressing Boutique will help you achieve that sexy look, from the top of your head to the tip of your toes. Get girled out — because when you’re all woman, your confidence soars and people will smell it a mile away.  So here’s some tips and tricks for that special night out. Have fun girls!!

Your Hair

Our stylists at Allura Hairdressing Boutique love to create that special occasion hair. The updo is the quintessential feminine hairstyle. The hair swept up reveals the contours and delicacy of your neck — an often-overlooked feature. Don’t underestimate the French roll. It’s romantic. You can go loose and messy, or a perfect roll with every hair in place, because it works either way.

Your Smell

Try Chanel No 5.  A really fancy affair calls for a really fancy perfume. This is an all time classic,  and trust me, a little goes a long way. I spray it once, only once, on my chest. Then I rub my wrists against it and spread it along my neck. Spray it more than once and you’ll smell like The Church Lady.

 Your Makeup

Pick one feature and go big on it. If it’s the lips, try a bold red. If it’s your eyes, go smokey — but don’t do both. The ultra feminine woman need not overdo her makeup. If you’re going bold on the eyes, opt for a muted lip gloss. If you’re going full-on red lips, just groom your eyebrows, apply a little eyeliner and some mascara.
