The Best Brunette Shades By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864
 
When we think of the best famous brunettes, Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway and Katie Holmes come immediately to mind. Katie’s colour is one to two shades darker than her normal colour, brightening up her over all look.
 
Anne’s look uses cool, violet tones to bring out the gold flecks in her eyes. And her highlights are amber streaks. And, of course, there’s J. Lo. Sandy shades of colour were expertly applied for a seamless look.
 
Want to take your brunette locks to a whole new level? That’s what we love to do!

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair!  By Hair Salon Berwick – Call Us On 9707 0864

5 Essential Steps For Beautiful Silver Hair!

Love them, yes, but we don’t want to look like them!

To keep gray locks looking bouncy, sassy and shiny, takes commitment to maintenance. Here’s what we recommend:

– Firs, talk to your stylist about your specific silver fox needs. If you’re easing out of color, you’ll need a plan. Opt for highlights or lowlights to help grow out the color.

– Gray hair is wiry, dry and brittle. And it’s sensitive to the elements! Get regular in salon deep conditioning treatments followed by weekly at home deep conditioning treatments.

– To counteract yellow, get a violet-based glossing treatment in the salon every 6-8 weeks.

– Use a violet-based shampoo that’s moisturizing to calm down the dryness.

– Use a clarifying shampoo weekly to remove pollutants and the effects of cigarette smoke (if you’re around any).

With the same commitment given to any hair type, you can rock sexy, silver locks! As always, if you have questions, just ask. We’re here to help!

The Secret Of Graying Beautifully

The Secret Of Graying Beautifully By Hair Salon Berwick – Call Us On 9707 0864

The Secret Of Graying Beautifully

It’s really not a couple of dirty words! In fact, going gray has actually become a trend in recent years. If you make the decision to go gray, the look can be dazzling, but it must be done right!

Why Do We Gray?

Going gray can start as early as 15, but for 25% of the population, those telltale signs of age start in our early 30’s. So much of it has to do with heredity.

If your family grays early, mostly likely, so will you. Cells call melanocytes determine the color of your hair. As melanocytes become less active (as they do in our 20’s), they don’t carry as much pigment, and that’s when the graying begins.

But who says gray hair has to mean old age? Some women choose to embrace this inevitable life change with sass.

The Key To Graying Beautifully

Going gray, just like coloring your hair, has its own set of rules. Follow them and your gray locks can be stunning.

The key is to keep the color vibrant. Because gray hair can turn yellow, ask us about a soft toner to neutralize yellow and add glossy shine.

Gray hair is often wiry and tends to be drier and more brittle. So make sure you use a violet shampoo that is also moisturizing. And, as with all hair types, deep condition weekly!

To keep your whole appearance youthful, be vigilant about updating your look. Don’t keep the same cut you had 10 years ago. Change is good. Make yours beautiful!

Right Hairstyle for Facial Shape

How To Get The Right Hairstyle For Your Facial Shape

How To Get The Right Hairstyle For Your Facial Shape By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864

“I really like her look,” the woman said, pointing to a picture of Katie Holmes’s 2008 bob. “Can I do that?”

A good stylist will listen carefully to that question, look at your face and run his or her fingers through your hair.

You might call it our way of processing the question. To get a great cut that’s also the right look, a stylist has two considerations right off:

– Your face shape
– The texture of your hair

A beautifully cut head of hair is still a disaster if it does not work with your natural features!

The rule of thumb in balancing any facial shape is to try to achieve an oval shape, which is the most pleasing to the human eye.

Our passion is putting the perfect frame around your face to balance and bring out your best features. That means long faces need shortening, wide faces need lengthening and so on.

Then there is the texture of your hair. Is it coarse? Fine? Medium? Wiry? Or is it thin? Thick? Curly? Or straight? These are all critical factors in giving you the perfect cut and style for your face and your lifestyle.

Most importantly, as much as we all love fashion, don’t let it dominate your choice of hairstyles. Keira Knightley certainly hasn’t. She took a bold step from long, sleek hair to a short 1920’s bob!

There are so many great styles. We have no doubt that there is a look that was made just for you!

The Switching Shampoos Myth

The ‘Switching Shampoos” Myth

The “Switching Shampoos” Myth By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864

No, no, a thousand times no. Hair does not get used to anything!

If you have to switch your shampoo a lot, then it either has too many foaming agents or it has ingredients that are coating your hair.

Got constant flyaways? Then your shampoo is too drying. If your hair is flat, then the shampoo is coating your hair. A good shampoo should do neither!

If you’re tired of wondering every day if your hair is going to cooperate, please talk to us. We can solve the problem fast, save your sanity and save you money!

Hair Extensions FAQ

10 FAQs About Getting Hair Extensions

10 FAQs About Getting Hair Extensions By Hair Salon Berwick  Call Us On 9707 0864

1. “Does it hurt when hair extensions are applied?”

Not at all! In fact, if it does, you should leave that place of business immediately. Stylists, like ours, are trained in all aspects of the application and removal of hair extensions. Tension is firm but comfortable. There should never be any pulling!

2. “How do I brush my hair with extensions?”

Use a soft bristle brush and start from the bottom of your hair and work your way up.

3. “How do I sleep with hair extensions?”

Gently tie your hair while sleeping. This will prevent your extensions from tangling. Use a satin scarf or sleep cap for best results.

4. “How do I care for my extensions?”

Apply a leave-in conditioner frequently and after shampooing. Detangle hair gently with a wide toothcomb. If you shampoo at night, make sure your hair is completely dry before going to bed. Air drying is best. Or, if you must blow dry, make sure to set the dryer on low heat and speed.

5. “What shampoo do I use?”

Use a mild moisturizing shampoo. Lather gently and work the shampoo down the hair. Rinse and blot dry.

6. “Can I colour my own extensions at home?”

No! All hair extensions have gone through an intense chemical colour process to get their colour. If you want to change the colour of your extensions, it’s best to let us do it with salon colour.

7. “What are the best styling tools to use with my extensions?”

Use a looper brush or a smooth styling comb. Start at the ends and work your way up, brushing or combing in a downward motion.

8. “What styling products should I use and avoid with my extensions?”

Do not spray your extensions with conditioners or any silicone products that can cause the braids to slip. Use only alcohol free products on extensions. Avoid over use to prevent product build up.

9. “What are the best tools to use for styling my extensions?”

Heated styling appliances can only be used on 100% human hair extensions! Use conditioning ionic ceramic heat styling tools whenever possible. And use the lowest temperature level possible that’s still effective.

Overuse of blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons will shorten the life of human hair extensions.

10. “How do I remove my hair extensions?”

You can either have them cut out (but that would make your hair very short!) or preferably, let us take them out. We will apply a special solvent that will release the bond.

Proper care is the key to keeping your extensions looking fabulous. And remember, any other questions you have, just ask us! We’re happy to help!

Flat Iron To Style Curly Hair

This Styling Tool Can Either Make Or Break Your Curly Hair

This Styling Tool Can Either Make Or Break Your Curly Hair By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864

Choosing the right flat iron to transform curly locks into smooth, straight locks is serious business! Curly hair dries out more easily than other hair types because the oil doesn’t travel all the way down the strands.

That’s why the right flat iron is extremely important for your delicate locks. Curly locks must have high heat to straighten it, usually 400 degrees for sleek tresses.

But here’s the rub.

With temperatures that high you can easily burn your hair. Choose only a ceramic flat iron because it produces heat that is safe and efficient for curls.

Make sure it also has multiple temperature settings for more styling control. Why is a ceramic flat iron so good for curly hair? It produces a gentle, moist heat that is safe for your hair type.

Ceramic flat irons also lock in moisture and seal hair cuticles for healthier styling. Only professional ceramic flat irons produce sleek, shiny results; cheap models do not.

Seriously, don’t even think about getting a flat iron unless you go pro! Cheaper models will do your curls more harm than good. It’s that important.

Want some tips on which brands we recommend and why? Just ask us! We’re here to help!

Bad Hair Day

How To Get Through A Bad Hair Day

How To Get Through A Bad Hair Day By Hair Salon Berwick Call Us On 9707 0864

What luck! When a bad hair day strikes, you have the power to actually make it look chic!

Here’s how:

Headbands: They’re back in style with a vengeance! That means whether your hair is long, short, or somewhere in between, it’s an easy solution for a very temporary problem. Get a stash of jewel-encrusted, glittery or other unusual hairbands and let them do the talking on bad hair days.

Messy Or Half Updo: If your hair is medium to long, go for a messy updo or half updo. The point is to make lemons from lemonade! If you think your hair is a mess, take it to the max and make it chic. No one will ever know.

Flyaway Hair: Don’t brush it! That will only make it worse. Apply pomade and keep dryer sheets handy throughout the day to smooth unruly hair.

We all move a bit too fast, take short cuts and then curse our rotten luck when we wake up to a bad hair day. This too shall pass. But at least now, bad hair days can have real style!

How to grow old gracefully by hair salon berwick

How to grow old gracefully

How To Go Grey Gracefully

Wondering if you’re ready to go grey? You don’t have to, but if you decide you’re ready, there is a rule of thumb. When your hair is 40% grey then you can stop coloring.

If you’ve previously colored your hair, there are two ways to transition to your new grey look:

– If you’re willing to have a short haircut, then cut out all the old color.
– Or, have your stylist weave in a few lowlights as you grow out the old shade.

The last approach is a subtle way to de-emphasize roots as the grey comes in, and the single color process goes out.

Remember, grey hair needs special care, too. You definitely don’t want it to look yellow and tired! Talk to us about treatments to keep it and you looking beautiful.
