Long Hair Icons

Many Long hair icons have graced the celebrity world. But, There are a few key players who’ve had luscious hair that stood the test of time.

Cher

 

You cannot separate Cher from her big hair and her distinct musical intonations. The American singer and actress of the famed Sonny & Cher duo has been making great music and iconic fashion statements throughout her career. From big, bold curls to sleek straight bangs, Cher has always known how to channel her Goddess of Pop status. She is the main inspiration for the current extra long trend that was re-introduced recently by Kim Kardashian and followed by many other pop stars, creating a renewed interest in hair extensions.

Gisele Bündchen

The Brazilian supermodel, known simply by her first name, has been amongst the world’s most prominent models since 2004. Her long, flyaway dirty-blonde hair is a key part of what makes Gisele so iconic. From being a Victoria’s Secret Angel, to being called one of—if not the only—remaining supermodels in the world, Gisele has the big-time flair, in part thanks to her glowing locks.

Naomi Campbell

The English supermodel and actress has rocked a few different hairstyles over the years, but whether the traditional waves or straight across bangs, her glossy black hair has alway

s stayed flawless. The actress began modeling in the 1980s, and found herself and her iconic style in the international limelight in the late 80s on into the 90s.

Brigitte Bardot

She began as an aspiring ballerina, then transitioned into a sensual cinematic icon after starring in the film , And God Created Woman. The French blonde bombshell is known for her gorgeous long hair, and for nailing the beehive look of the age.

Stevie Nicks

The American singer-songwriter is known as the iconic Queen of Rock and Roll for a reason—great style, excellent vocals, potent songwriting and musicianship, and a steady stream of iconic hairstyles. It’s hard to think of Stevie Nicks as separate from her big, bold, blonde curls. No matter what stage of her career, that big hair has always been essential to her artistic expression.

 

Lady Godiva

The iconic Lady Godiva, Countess of Mercia, is a legendary female figure known for her bold nude ride throughout the streets of Coventry in England, with only her long, sweeping locks to shield her. The bold ride was the Lady Godiva’s flagrant protest against her noble husband’s mistreatment and oppressive taxation over their tenants. It was also seen as a physical act of penance to the townspeople themselves. Bold gallantry and long, sweeping curls—what could be more divine?

Everything to know about the Keratin Treatment

If you have curly hair or are prone to frizz, then you absolutely must get a keratin treatment this summer. Keratin treatments tame frizz and make your hair appear shinier and more tamed. They also cut down on the time you spend drying and styling your hair– and isn’t that what you want? Here are a few things you should know before getting your keratin treatment.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

There are certainly at-home keratin treatments you can try. But if you want it done right, you need the magic touch of a professional stylist. In a first class salon such as Red Market, you should expect treatment to last about 90 minutes. However it may vary depending on length and hair type.

How Long Will Keratin Treatment Last?

Keratin treatments will keep your hair manageable and frizz-free for 8 to 10 weeks after you receive your treatment with proper at home care, Chlorine and Sulphate containing products may affect the time your treatment stays intact. You will find your blow-drying time cut in half and easy hairstyles are even easier.

How Should I Maintain My Hair After A Keratin Treatment?

Depending on the Keratin used on your hair type, you may need to avoid washing your hair for four days after treatment, Red Market offers different types of keratin for different types of hair. But keep in mind, we are talking about 8 to 10 weeks of hair glory. So whether you are waiting 24 hours of 4 days, it is a small sacrifice many are happy to pay.

Experts recommend that you avoid shampoos with sodium-sulfates. But, shouldn’t you be doing that anyway? We can help you choose a shampoo for your hair type that will keep your keratin intact.

Something as complex as a Keratin treatment where each step of the process is crucial to the end result, it is best to go with a professional stylist.

An experienced professional will do the job properly, and will be able to offer a higher-end treatment than you can get from a box. Finally, as not all keratin treatments are alike, you should consult with a top hair stylist because the wrong treatment can alter the tone of your hair color.

Sea Salt Spray for the perfect beach waves hairstyles

beach-wave-hairstyle-tips-miami-salon

Salt spray is a phenomenal product that helps create effortless, natural-looking wavy hairstyles without the need for a curling wand. It’s great for those days that you want your hair to look styled, yet natural, and it’s extremely popular during the summer months. Although it’s a popular product, there’s still a lot of people who haven’t learned how to perfectly use it. Below you’ll find a few tips to help you achieve those beautiful beach waves every time.

Don’t Use too Much

You don’t want to saturate your hair with salt spray because it’ll look dried out and crunchy. You want to create beach waves that fall and flow in a soft, natural way. So, take it slow. Spritz a few light sprays and go from there. If your hair is thin, you definitely need to be careful with your application. If you have thick hair and notice that you don’t have enough product to achieve your desired results, spritz a few more sprays, focusing on the layers beneath your top layer of hair. Make sure you always spray evenly. You want to get all your hair and avoid spraying too much on one section.

Apply it to the Right Sections

Most people should only spritz their mid-lengths to ends. You avoid the roots because spritzing sea salt directly on your roots might overload them and dry out the top section of your hair, reducing some of your hair’s natural shine. However, if you have really thin, flat hair, you might consider adding a tiny amount of spray to your roots. This will dry them out a little and create a bit of lift, giving you a voluminous start to your beautiful waves.

Apply to Wet Hair

If you want beautiful beachy waves, you should apply the salt spray to wet hair. Spritzing on dry hair will texturize your locks, but it won’t create the look you desire. If you don’t want to wash your hair before styling, that’s fine. You can simply dampen your hair before applying the spray. After your hair is wet, spritz the sea salt spray evenly on your hair and work it through all the way to the ends, scrunching or twisting your hair as you go.

Drying it Correctly

Once you’ve spritzed, twisted, or scrunched your hair you need to dry it. If you have time and don’t mind, it’s great to let your hair air-dry. This will help you achieve a more genuine day-at-the-beach look. Of course, you don’t have to air-dry your hair. However, you don’t want to blast your hair with heat and mess up the effort you just put in either. If you choose to use a blow-dryer, you should only use it on the cool and low settings. Anything more can mess up your beachy wave hairstyle. Whatever you do, do not rub your hair with your towel at any point during this process. If you need to, you can pat it dry and gently scrunch with your towel if you hair is too wet, but do not rub it.

Fixing Mistakes

If you find that your hair turned a bit crunchy or crisp, and you don’t want to start over from the beginning, try adding a few sprays of a good leave-in conditioner to help soften it up a bit.

Sea salt spray is the perfect styling spray for beautiful day-at-the-beach wave hairstyles. If you think this look and styling method sounds like something you’d enjoy, try Kerastase Spray-a-porter sea salt spray and follow these helpful tips to create the perfect waves every time. Available at Red Market Salon Miami.

The Beauty of African-American Hairstyles

african-american hairstyles

It doesn’t matter if your hair is natural, pressed, relaxed or curled, for African-American hair, finding a hair stylist you can trust is not only essential, it’s also tough. Any woman can find fault in their hair no matter what type of hair we were born with. For African-American’s, their hair needs a lot of care to prevent thinning. We will look at some of Red Market’s expert advice on how to take care of and work with African-American hairstyles.

For natural hair   

Hair conditioner and shampoo are crucial if you need your natural hair to remain as healthy as always. It is difficult to use styling agents without a conditioner and shampoo. Trimming the hair also keeps it neat and stylish and avoids you the feeling of unkempt hair.

For pressed or straightened hair   

Pressed hair needs lots of visits to the salon; some go every two weeks for trimming. However, instead of many visits to the salon and using too many products, drinking a lot of water and greens has significant benefits on your hair. Also, over the counter products like coconut oil are healthy options for your hair care.

For relaxed hair       

In most cases, 80% of people with relaxed hair complain of damaged hair. Hair relaxers contain chemicals that could easily thin out the hair follicles. However, with technology, you can relax your hair without using hair relaxer products, some hot iron curls would be enough. It’s also essential to determine your hair texture since some textures are not fit for straightening.

For thinning hair   

Red Market Salon in Miami recommends the use of Kerastase specific, a high-quality hair product, for people suffering from thinning and damaged hair. The product acts to restore damaged hair and reduce hair loss. For African-American hairstyles that is coarse or relaxed, applying Kerastase after a deep conditioning could provide a heat protective layer on the hair.

3 Flower Hairstyles to Really Turn Heads

Since ancient times, women have used flowers to adorn their hair, and to signal their “availability” to marry. (In Polynesia, for example, a woman shows she’s single by wearing flower behind her left ear. A flower worn behind the right ear means that you’re married or engaged.) In recent years, the neo-hippie crowd that frequent music festivals like Coachella have taken to wearing crowns of flowers in their hair — think Vanessa Hudgens for example, who frequently embraces a “Boho” look.

Here’s a look at some famous blooming flower hairstyles the “trend” that refuses to go away …Flower Hairstyles

1. Frida Kahlo’s Glorious Floral Headpiece

Frida Kahlo made the floral headpiece her signature look. In photograph after photograph, she’s shown wearing a variety of interpretations. Today, the look has been copied by the likes of Kate Moss, Karlie Kloss and Beyonce, one of the biggest trend setters of modern times.

2. The Flower ChildFlower Hairstyles

During much of the 60’s and into the early 70’s, the hippie scene embraced the idea of the flower child. Women wore flowers in their hair as a symbol of “flower power”, the slogan of the times that used flowers to represent the concept of peace and love in the era of the hugely unpopular Vietnam War.

3. The Classic Hawaiian Haku (Crown of Flowers)

Flower Hairstyles

Hawaiian natives wore beautiful crowns of native flowers in their hair called hakus. The haku was particularly striking against the sleek dark hair of native Hawaiian women, who often wore them along with classic leis. It wasn’t only women who wore hakus — little girls frequently wore them as well. The tradition goes on today at performances of the traditional “hula” dance and at festivals throughout the Hawaiian Islands, as well as being extremely popular with Hawaiian brides.

Floral “crown” flower hairstyles are still popular today, especially among brides and their wedding parties. But you don’t have to be a bride or a bridesmaid to wear flowers in your hair. A simple flower behind the ear, tiny blooms woven into a braid or an updo or even a not-too-flashy floral crown are entirely appropriate for any fancy dress-up occasion!
