Painting Your Hair

Today we are going to forget the foils.  Why?  Well you have to try this technique called BALAYAGE.

What is balayage?  I’m glad you asked.

Balayage is a French word that refers to the process of painting color onto hair.  This technique was developed in the 1970’s.

If you are looking for a natural look, balayage is the only way to go.  It will never leave you with a solid line of regrowth.

 

Here are a few other awesome things to note about balayage:

  • 100% creative, custom work of art, your hair is your personal canvas – no cookie cut design
  • Pick your range – go bold and dramatic or subtle and soft
  • More free time – low maintenance
  • Short hair, Balayage don’t care!
  • It’s not picky – works on any shade of hair

 

Balayage allows your designer to get creative when working with your hair.  Foils are far more restricting and require a more structured approach when applied, thus limiting the creativity of your designer.

Balayage = Pieces of hair

Foils = Sections of hair

 

 

 

The Silent Burden

At some point in our lives, most of us encounter a form of hair loss. It can be a huge burden for many:

 

~32% of female clients are experiencing hair loss.

~64% of male clients are experiencing hair loss or thinning.

~23% is the portion of clientele that stylist believe have hair-loss issues.

~81% of clients are at least somewhat concerned about hair loss.

 

There are many factors that may play into this; nutrition, vitamin deficiency, medication and hormone imbalance just to name a few.

 

Often times DHT (dihydrotestosterone) is the culprit of hair loss. DHT prevents proteins, vitamins and minerals from providing the nourishment for hair follicles to sustain life, thus causing the follicle to shrink or close off entirely.

 

~96% of clients say having full, healthy hair is important to them.

 

Eufora has created two different lines for men and women that will help prevent and treat hair loss. If you want to maintain fullness or need help adding it back into your beautiful locks, talk to your designer about the best approach!

Hair Color and the Swimming Pool

Why the green hair?

 

Eufora’s Lead Chemist, James Grundy, provides this insight on keeping your hair safe around the pool this summer.

 

“It’s actually more caused by copper. Think of the Statue of Liberty she is copper and over time has turned green. Copper sulfate is used in pools to control algae also many homes have hard water from copper pipes. I recommend a chelating shampoo that binds copper specifically. Eufora has Urgent Repair Shampoo. Eufora also has a pre chemical prep product called Color Prep Spray that will help remove metals from the hair prior to doing a chemical service such as color or bleach.”

 

URGENT REPAIR SHAMPOO

Gentle, daily clarifying and restorative shampoo thoroughly removes dulling and damaging buildup improving the health of the hair and scalp.

KEY INGREDIENTS:
-Botanical extract blend of Chamomile, Horsetail, Nettle and Henna provides strength, shine and promotes scalp health.

-Antioxidant Rich. A derivative of the Litchi Berry prevents damage to hair by neutralizing free radicals and photo damage from UVA and UVB rays.

-Extracts of Menthol, Camphor and Peppermint Oil work to stimulate circulation to the scalp and soothe dry, itchy scalp and helps create a healthy scalp environment.

-Amino Acid Complex works to reinforce and protect the cuticle, improve elasticity, color retention and the overall health of the hair.

APPLICATION:
Work into lather using fingertips to the scalp. Work the lather down the length of the hair. Rinse well.

 

  • Color Prep Spray 🔑 ingredients contains natural oils and extracts of Sugar Cane, Lemon, 🍋 Vanilla, Grapefruit, Orange, 🍊 and Apple 🍎 to help cleanse and add a refreshing light scent.

 

Be sure to ask your designer before your new color is applied if you feel your hair needs a ‘detox’!

Remembering on Memorial Day

Tomorrow is Memorial Day.  This day is observed every year to honor all those who have served our country and gave the ultimate sacrifice.  After browsing around on social media, I came across a couple things that really stuck with me.  We live in the best country in the world and have all the freedoms that many parts of the world are jealous off, but freedom isn’t free.  One image that stuck with me the most was a listing of each war starting at World War I to the most recent war if Afghanistan and the casualties of each war.  These thousands of soldiers sacrificed their lives in order for our America to exist as freely as it does today.

 

Most of us have heard of the United Stated storming the beaches of Normandy in the summer of 1944 during World War II.  Obviously, most of that knowledge comes from a textbook and seeking out someone who was actually there is getting hard to find.  Over 9,000 American  soldiers lost their lives that day.  In the photos below, volunteers stenciled those 9,000 outlines in the sand representing those brave soldiers.  AMAZING!

 

 

 

In the midst of the parties and BBQ’s, remember those who gave their lives for these great United States of America.

Showcase Styledown

Pay a little closer attention to the hair of the Studio Eleven Team this next month.  The challenge has been put to the Studio Eleven Family to wear their hair different each day.  The Team Member who is able to do so the longest wins!

Now would be as good of a time as any to search out new hair styles while your favorite Salon has a lot of options to show you daily!!!!

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!

Today we celebrated all of the mother’s around the world, but I wanted to send a special shout out to those momma’s at Studio Eleven.  They are a committed and driven group of women who inspire those around them.  Thank you for all your hard work at the salon, but more importantly, your work at home.
