beach waves

Summer time calls for beach waves! And not only the water kind, but the hair kind as well. For beach waves, no volume at the roots and the ends are undone. When re-creating it, the trick is to keep all the waves concentrated in the middle.

Tame your roots: Use your fingers, not a brush or a comb, to detangle freshly washed hair. Then blow-dry your roots only, pointing the nozzle of the dryer directly down on them while raking your fingers through.

Once your roots are dry, rub a leave-in conditioner or styling cream between your palms and run your hands through the middle of your hair. Twist half of your hair into a large bun and blow-dry until it’s 80 percent dry.  Then switch to the other side. This will produce that sexy bend.

Create Waves: When your hair is totally dry, add waves throughout the middle with a one inch curling iron. The key here is to use a medium heat setting- if it’s too hot, you’ll make tight spirals. Starting two inches below your roots, wrap a section of hair loosely around the iron. Loosen up the curl and you are all set!




We’ve had a few clients ask us how can they keep their curls lasting longer than a day. Well we’ve got a way of maintaining them, check it out:


Do not wash your hair frequently: Washing your hair everyday causes for natural oils to vanish. These oils are the ones  that keep the style in place. Depending on the type of hair and how much oil your scalp produces, wash at least once, twice a week or every other day.

Use Voluminous Shampoo & Conditioner: Try using a shampoo and conditioner that adds volume to your hair. These will help keep your hair bouncy and light all day, unlike other voluminous products that may weigh your hair down causing for the style to disappear quick.

Curly-Hair Gel: Finding a gel that works with your hair as well as giving your hair that extra boost to maintain the style can be tough but when you discover one you’ll be set. Say no to gels that leave your hair stiff without a natural bounce, those create an icky outcome.

Heat Protecting Serum: Curling your hair causes damage, be sure to use a heat protection serum that will help your hair and not against it. Even if you use gel your hair wont be protected. A serum will also add shine and help your curls looks more natural. Win-Win situation, yay!

Blow-dry hair upside down: Yes, you read that right. Doing so will add more natural volume, which makes curling easier to do.

Spray, spray, hair spray: Don’t be afraid to use hairspray. After every layer you curl be sure to spray some, this will keep them in place. After you’re done curling, spray some more. Be sure to spray evenly around your hair and manage your hair to the way desired. Then finally you’ll have your locks locked in!


We’ve discovered more food options for healthy hair. Give these healthy foods for healthy hair a shot:

Oysters: Oysters are an excellent source of zinc which provides your hair with healthy nutrition that prevents hairloss. Also, zinc is an immune booster so your immune system stays strong too!

Nuts: The brazil nut is a great source of selenium. Walnuts are also high in omega-3 fatty acids. Cashews and almonds have a high zinc content. All of these nutrients are essential to healthy hair!

Durum: Durum is high in protein, zinc, iron, and B Vitamins. Commercial bread and breakfast cereals contain vitamins and minerals essential to maintaining healthy hair.

*The number 1 thing you want to remember is balance. Eating from the major food groups will give your hair important nutrients.

Eggs: Eggs are an excellent source of protein, biotin, and vitamin B-12, all of which are important in maintaining healthy hair.  FYI preparation of eggs does not seem to make a difference so you’re able to cook and eat them however you prefer. Yay!

Poultry: Lean turkey and chicken are high in protein. Lack of protein can cause loss of hair color. Eating chicken may help prevent the loss of color and can help increase your hair’s strength.



We’ve been asked about ways to have great, healthy, shine hair. One of our common answers is definitely nutrition. Your eating habits also have an impact on your hair and scalp. Here are a few of the necessary foods you want to have make your hair even more amazing:


Carrots: Besides the fact that carrots are delicious, they also promote good vision and a healthy scalp. Carrots are rich in Vitamin A, which is ideal for keeping the scalp conditioned and hair shiny. You can add carrots to many meals, either as a salad topping, as a snack, or in soups. Over all carrots are a win win.

Beans: Beans are magical for more reasons than you might think. They’re full of protein, rich in iron, zinc, and biotin. Beans promote optimal hair growth and health. Having sufficient amounts of biotin in your body prevents brittle hair.

Milk: Milk and milk products are high in calcium and protein. Calcium is an important mineral that stimulates hair growth. Try to provide your body with 3 servings of calcium a day, also aim for low-fat or fat-free yogurts, milk, cheese, and sour cream.

Greens: Going green isn’t just a trend for a healthier planet, keeping green leafy veggies in your diet is a healthy boost for your hair too. Besides being full of calcium and iron, dark green veggies like spinach, kale, broccoli, and salad greens also provide Vitamins A and C which are necessary for your sebum production.

Fish: Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for optimal scalp health. A healthy scalp is directly related to healthy hair. Fish such as salmon, herring, tuna, mackerel, sardines, and bluefish are all great sources of omega-3 fatty acids and protein.


Spring is here, you look at your hair and what do you see? Split Ends. No one likes those sneaky split ends, especially when the radiant sun is out and you want to wear your hair down.  Your hair has been through a lot this past winter. The cold dry weather sucked the life out of it. But we’re here to help you  and bring life to it once again. Split ends give you a messy, burnt out look. Here are a few neat ways to look after those ends and get healthy looking hair.


1. Condition : be sure to condition your hair every time you wash it. Besides the fact that it leaves hair smooth, it also provides lubrication that will help prevent breakage from occurring.

2. De-tangle your hair : This is an easy one, simply brush your hair before showering. De-tangling your hair when dry makes it easier to brush while in the shower. Also make sure that when in the shower you brush the hair product on your hair, this helps get it evenly distributed.

3. Trim : Simplest way of getting rid of those icky split ends is by simply trimming them off. You don’t need a complete new look, just be sure to have those ends cut off for you. This helps get rid of all split ends therefore protecting your hair from getting more damaged.

4. Products : Once again, using the proper product for your hair will maintain it healthy and in good condition. Try using split ends conditioner or natural hair oils. P.S Coconut oil sometimes dry your hair up causing it to split at the ends.
