Our stylist at New Image had the pleasure of attending the Salon Centric Fall Hair show in October. We take every oppertunity we can to futher our education. We know that staying up to date on current trends is necessary in the beauty industry.
Meeting Jen Planck was definatly a highlight for us. She is Tiffany's favorite motivational speaker. After sitting threw Jen's Hairy Situations class Tiffany won an awesome package valued at over $400.
We were lucky enough to get front row seats to a Redken class. In this class we learned new color and cut techniques that we have already used in the salon.
After an awesome class on hair texture we got to meet and pick the brain of Redken artist Brayden Pelletier. This guy knows how to create some serious texture and his braiding techniques are fresh and on point.
We can't wait to continue to use the awesome techniques in the salon! If you are ready for a new fall trend we are ready for you!!!

Ok Ladies, we hear you! You are sick of flat lifeless hair! There is a lot we can do as stylist to helo you while you are in the salon, but the best way to get full looking locks is to follow our tips below!
Choosing the right products and using the right heated styling tools can make a world of difference to how voluminous your hair is, but there are also other ways to elevate your fine flat hair.
Prep your hair with a shampoo and conditioner that’s designed to create volume. Find a professional shampoo and conditioner specifically formulated to add volume to fine hair.
Before blow drying hair, add a root lifter. This can be in either mousse or spray form just make sure not to put in too much product to work against you and weigh hair down in the process. Finish your look with hairspray. Look for hairsprays that have thickening or volumizing agents built into them to help with your fine hair. Use them to set your overall look
The next time you head to the salon to get your hair cut, give layers a try. Adding layers can make fine hair appear fuller, especially if you enhance your cut by giving it a big blow dry.
Don't brush your hair too often, this stimulates oils from the scalp which will make hair flat. If you must fix your hair with some sort of a tool, opt for a wide-tooth comb.
Do not wash your hair everyday. You will benefit from this by getting fuller looking hair at the roots, and just use dry shampoo in-between washes!

With the advanced technology happening in hair care, it has become easier to win the battle over dry hair. Dry, brittle hair is the #1 hair concern among women, but there are ways to fight it! How often you are shampooing and conditioning, the water temperature, hair and heat protectants, blow drying, proper combing and more are all factors!
Here are some of the most sure-fire ways to beat the dry hair battle:
When choosing a shampoo, make sure it is for hydrating and nourishing. How often you are shampooing is also key. Shampooing too often can dry your hair out from scalp to ends. Depending on the texture of the hair and the level of dryness being experienced, chances are you need to put more time in between shampooing, Some individuals go every other day, some go a week. Finding what works for your hair is most important!
Dont like the idea of not shampooing everyday? Most people say they prefer day 2 or day 3 hair. You should consider other styles that will give your hair a break. Top knots, chignons, braids, etc. Have fun with your hair! When you do shampoo, keep in mind that cleansing your scalp is where your focus should be when shampooing.
Always follow up with a good conditioner or even a deep conditioning mask. Conditioner shoudl be applied mostly to your ends.. When you have time, leave your conditioner on for a few extra minutes.
You should also know that the temperature of the water plays a role too. Having it too hot is not a good choice for your hair or skin. A cooler rinse closes your hairs cuticle giving it a more smooth finish.
Never go without protecting your hair! Ask your stylist what protectant is right for your hair and lifestyle.
