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.

How To Make Curly Hair Behave

How To Make Curly Hair Behave

How To Make Curly Hair Behave

Do you wake up in the morning wondering if you and your hair will duke it out?

Many curly girls feel the same way, and it’s completely understandable. You have the most envied hair type…and the most difficult.

To make matters worse most curly hair girls don’t understand how different their hair type really is! They just know it’s tough to work with.

So let’s set the record straight.

Curly hair is drier than any other hair type. It also has the most diverse hair texture because it can appear in so many different forms, like wavy, medium or tight coils.

That’s why there are two non-negotiable, absolutely, positively essential “gotta haves” with curly hair.

The first is an experienced stylist with advanced training! Curly hair, with all its twists, turns and curves, is a very tricky hair type to work with. Without considerable expertise your haircut can mean tears and frustration.

We love curly hair so much we took advanced classes on how to properly cut and care for it!

Hand in hand with an experienced stylist, every curly girl needs the right products for her specific hair texture. We do not recommend over-the-counter products because they are made with large molecules.

That means they sit on your hair cuticle; they don’t penetrate it. Needless to say, their effectiveness is mediocre. With INSERT SALON LINE HERE, the molecules are considerably smaller, penetrating the cuticle, and actually working with your hair to improve and enhance it. You really do get what you pay for!

Use your stylist as a resource and an ally because she is! She can show you how to give your curls the delicate attention they need for beautiful, bouncy, lovable hair.

No more misbehavin’!

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☺

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

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.
