Hair Color Glaze: Why you should consider getting one!

HAIR GLAZE (20% off In August use promo code BLGLAZE)2014_09_08_13_26_26.png

What exactly does it do? How is it different than hair color? Moreover, why is everyone getting them?

In Phoenix, it is about hair glaze treatments for many reasons which include, color trends, extreme heat, and the sun. Here are some reasons that make a hair glaze something you should consider.


1. A glaze will repair summer damage you have. It repairs your hair and undoes all that damage, so your hair feels a lot better. Glaze will deep condition your hair for ultimate softness and shine.

2. A glaze is not permanent hair color.  The glaze is very acidic does not penetrate the cuticle of the hair and in fact, closes the hair cuticle. The result is a smooth texture that will reflect light and feel much softer.

3. A glaze provides translucent color and intense conditioning. Glaze will enhance any variation of tone that you hair naturally has, allowing for a more subdued shade. If you have gray hair, and you put a gloss on, it will have a very tonal effect as opposed to one solid opaque color. It also makes your hair super shiny and silky.  It will even reduce a little bit of frizz, and overall, your hair feels like you had a conditioning treatment.

4. It can help tone down highlights. Highlights can look brassy or green by the end of summer; we recommend getting a glaze treatment to tone unwanted brassiness or to adjust the color.

5. You do not have to change your natural hair color to get the benefits of a glaze. Try a clear glaze, which is essentially a powerhouse conditioning treatment.

6. It is no-commitment change. A great thing about it is there’s no commitment, and it is going to fade on its own (within six weeks).  Moreover, if you want to change your hair, it does not interfere with any type of chemical service you want to do in the future

7. It is easy to maintain. All you need to do is use sulfate-free professional products that are made for colored hair, and you should be ok.

8. It is on target for fall 2016. This season’s hair trends will be rich tones. If you’re a brunette, go for a rich honey or espresso brown. If you’re a redhead, try a deep copper or auburn. Moreover, if you’re a blonde, opt for "bronde" or dark blonde.

EFFORTLESS UNDONE LOW BUN

This style works well on day old hair, if you need more volume and texture, start by spraying Oribe dry texturing spray throughout.

This will give oribe_dry_texturizing_spray.jpgyou fullness without a stiff feeling. Next add volume to the crown by backcombing a few sections and pin in place to create a bump. If you prefer a sleek look, skip this step. Now create a loose low ponytail. No need to make it too perfect— embrace the messiness!

Next, create the bun! First, part the hair into three sections. Next, wrap one section around the base of the ponytail and secure it with a bobby pin. Grab the second section and wrap it in the opposite direction of the previous section and pin it in place. You can stack these sections on top of each other. Don’t worry if any pieces are sticking out; you can go back and tuck them in later.
For the last section of the hair wrap it around the entire bun, pushing upwards. Secure it with a few more bobby pins and you are done! Follow with a little Oribe Superfine Spray to keep everything in place. Gently pull out a few face-framing pieces to keep the look effortless.

Micro-Needling

Micro-needling (also known as collagen induction therapy) is a minimally invasive treatment mircopen_image.jpgto rejuvenate the skin. A device with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin, which triggers the body to create new collagen and elastin. Results can include improved texture and firmness, as well as a reduction in scars, pore size, and stretch marks.

What is Micro-Needling?
The Eclipse MicroPen uses a sterile needle-tip containing 12 tiny micro-needles to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin. This initiates the skin’s repair process to naturally produce collagen and elastin, ideal for smoothing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, traumatic scars, and stretch marks. Micro-channels created by the treatment allow for optimal absorption of topical products and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), enhancing their effects in the deeper layers of skin.

What does it feel like?Micro-Needling feels similar to sandpaper being moved across the skin. Topical numbing may be applied prior to your procedure, but no anesthesia or medications are necessary.

What can I expect after a Micro-Needling procedure?
The skin will be red and flushed, similar to a mild to moderate sunburn, for 12 hours to 3 days. You may also experience mild swelling, tightness, and/or mild peeling. Side effects are temporary and typically resolve within 3 days. Total healing time depends on the depth of the treatment, skin type, and skin condition, and some patients may heal completely in 24 hours.

When will I see the results?Clients typically notice an immediate glow, but visible improvement will take about 2-4 weeks and can continue for up to 6 months.

How many treatments will I need?A series of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is ideal for optimal results. Some conditions like deep wrinkles, advanced photo-aging, stretch marks, and acne scars may need 6-8 treatments.

Widely considered to be one of the most effective treatments for improving the overall appearance of the skin.  Micro-Needling is a form of Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT) and is considered to be a non-ablative treatment for the skin.  This means that the deep parts of the skin are being treated without the need to remove the top layer that is often done in other cosmetic skin treatments.  Micro-needling works for skin conditions such as fine lines and wrinkles, scarring caused by acne or photo damage, to treat uneven skin tone and can dramatically reduce the appearance of large pores.

*Growth Factors are often added to this treatment, the main task of human growth factors is to cause cell division and multiplication. Growth factors stimulate collagen production and epidermal growth factor stimulates skin-cell production.
