Hairstyling tips #1

Hairstyling tips 1Have a good hair day everyday with a few basic hairstyling tips. After 30+ years in the business, I’m confident that these simple suggestions will take any hair type from looking good to great.

You’ve already towel-dried your hair and applied a leave-in conditioner. Now place a generous amount of mousse or gel — at least the size of a quarter or half dollar — more control is better than less — into your palm. Apply at the crown and the front hairline. Then place more gel in your palms and scrunch it throughout your hair. Try Sebastian Mousse Forte or Gel Forte; they are great for heat control.

Using a clip(s) to section hair and a metal core brush, start drying from the bottom moving toward the top. This helps hair in the front from over drying and becoming overheated. As you dry your hair, make sure the hair nearest the scalp is dry first before extending to the ends of the hair.

Voila! Style, body, volume and movement. Now this is where any professional hairstylist will declare your hair a masterpiece; however, I know you ladies. You’ve got more hair tools than a handyman has wrenches. So come back soon for clues about curlers, rules about rollers, and a few flat iron faux paus.
