Tanning Tips for home

Posted on 1 March, 2012 at 19:46 Comments comments (17)
So many clients and friends ask me about spray tans. After such a long winter and with the first sign of sun we all start to realise a little colour would wipe away the winter blues. Most think it can look good initially but wont last long and can be expensive to keep up. This can be true but for that special occasion I believe its a reasonable amount to pay for such a natural, all over tan and in the space of 20 minutes. So how do we keep a tan without sitting under a sunlamp or continually paying out on a weekly basis to stand in a spray tan booth? The answer is simple, fake it at home! There are so many self tanning creams and lotions available it can be difficult to know which one will work for you. St Tropez and Fake Bake have stolen the market with a range of products to suit everyone but without a price tag to do the same. I have recently heard from a number of girls that have tried a much cheaper alternative and have had fantastic results, which one is it? Solait self tanning cream, available from Super Drug Stores, the creams are available in light, medium and dark tan to suit all skin tones and the results are an even and natural tan with the added bonus of a moisturiser! what more can you ask for? Why not even try the tanning mousse, this too gives an excellent result but must be applied with a tanning mitt, just be careful to shower it off before you go to bed to avoid staining your sheets and keep away from the general public or people you might want to impress before you have had that shower, it has a unique smell that you probably would not choose to purchase from a perfume counter. No excuses!

Clips, Bonds and Weaves

Posted on 29 February, 2012 at 17:00 Comments comments (0)
With so many types of hair extensions to choose from it is difficult to know what is best suited to your hair type and lifestyle. The weave method has become very popular over the last year as its believed this is the most natural method,without using glues and heat tools and therefore causing minimal damage if any,this is in fact a misconception, the weave method was traditionally used for Afro/Caribbean hair types as this type of hair tends to be course and will hold a plait easily. The hair is first plaited tightly and then wefts of hair are then stitched into the rows, this can cause discomfort especially when they are first applied until the natural hair has had time to drop and relax. Many girls with European hair types have tried this method and experienced problems such as breakage at the ends of the hair, bold patches due to the plait being done too tightly and headaches but on the up side you will get a semi permanent face lift, well at least until the weave is removed (lol) Unless you have Afro/Caribbean hair types or your hair is very thick and very strong it would be wise to avoid this type of application. So what are the Pro’s? Weaves can be low priced. What are the Con’s? Weaves can be painful, cause bold patches and cannot be worn up.
Clip-In hair extensions are great for those girls looking for a quick and dramatic change without having to do anything to the natural hair. Short and thin hair is instantly transformed into long thick flowing locks. Wefts of synthetic hair or human hair are clipped into sections of your own hair to give a natural result. This is thoroughly recommended for those looking for a temporary change or even for that one special night to transform your look. What are the Pro’s? Clip-in hair extensions can be inexpensive they are available in just about every hair colour and are easily attached. What are the Con’s? Clip-ins can be a annoying if they have to be put in daily, can slip down and the small clips can cause breakage to the natural hair if worn too often.
Pre-bonded hair extensions are in my opinion the safest and most natural looking method available for European hair types. Each strand of hair extension are individually attached to the natural hair, the Keratin tip is light and flexible which will allow the natural hair to grow without causing any breakage or damage to your own hair. The result is very natural and the hair can be worn up and is completely pain free. So what are the Pro’s? The result is very natural looking long hair; the bonds allow your own hair to grow and thicken without damage and are cost effective. What are the Con’s? If the hair extensions are applied incorrectly they can cause breakage to the natural hair and if positioned too high up on the head the bonds can be seen. This is also not recommended for those girls with very weak hair.

Deposit or 'Down' Payment

Posted on 28 February, 2012 at 18:06 Comments comments (0)
Hi All, I received a phone call from a client in Woolston asking me me why I have never required a deposit prior to an appointment for hair extensions. My answer was simple, would you pay for anything you have not seen, know its origin, or have any idea of the quality? clearly not! The answer is simple, any reputable hair technician should always have a good selection of hair colours and shades to suit most needs but of course with exception to some unique colours or lengths. I was surprised to hear that more recently deposits are required and people are paying for a product and service they have not seen.  Girls be warned, unless you have seen and sampled the hair you may not be getting what you think you have paid for. These days hair extensions are one of the most popular trends, with so many different hair extension suppliers trading on the web selling different grades and types of hair, unless you know your supplier and the type of hair being purchased and for the correct application you may be disappointed. However, there are a great deal of genuine hair technicians and hair suppliers that offer an excellent service and product so its always worth while to research before you part with any cash.
