Research studies conducted by Britain’s DNA suggests that more than 40% of the world’s population carry the gene that is responsible for red hair. However, this does not necessarily mean that someone will be born with red hair.

You have probably heard many nicknames associated with Red Hair. However, despite these jests, redheads are revered around the world as being one of the most sought-after hair colors, which is why so many Hollywood stars are noted for their copper locks.

It would be a tossup between Rita Hayworth and Lucille Ball, to decide who the most famous red haired celebrity is, and neither of them were natural redheads.

Rita grew up with dark brown hair and dyed hers when she hit the silver screen. 

Although  Lucy’s apricot red hair came to be her trademark, she was actually a natural brunette. Early in her career, she bleached her hair blonde when she got her first roles in film.  However, in the early ’50s, she was urged by MGM to dye her hair red.  The rest is history.

Modern day actress, Julianne Moore, is as famous for her long, red locks, as she is known for her outstanding acting abilities. Julia’s red locks shine in such films as, “The Big Lebowski” and, “The Kids Are Alright.”  

“Sex in the City’s” Cynthia Nixon first made an appearance in “Amadeus” as a peasant girl, but went on to become a beloved television actress instantly recognizable by her short red hair. ’80s movie icon, Molly Ringwald, now a jazz singer, is also noted for her signature short, red hair.

For these film and television stars and others, 50 shades of Red hair has been their biological blessing, as well as a passport to fame.

Red Market Salon Miami: Long Hair Must Care

beauty-salon-in-miami

Long hair is a luxury that takes both patience and dedication, It makes for a look of endless possibilities– and sometimes, taking care of your long hair makes you feel like the challenge outweighs the benefits. As stylists, we have found that it doesn’t have to be. You can keep your hair long and healthy even after it’s colored with some of these tips from the best beauty salon in Miami:

Reduce Friction

Reduce the friction on your hair while you sleep. Friction causes breakage and damage to your hair. You can help reduce friction while you sleep by lightly braiding your hair before bed and by using satin or silk pillowcases.

Don’t Brush While Wet

Your long luscious hair is most sensitive when it is wet – which means that is the least ideal time to brush. Try air drying a bit before brushing it extensively.

Use Coconut Oil

Coconut oils is one of the best oils for your hair, it makes it smooth, healthy, and strong. It takes about 18 hours to penetrate the hair follicles so make sure you use it as a leave-in conditioner once a week.

Shampoo and Conditioner

Shampoos, when not selected appropriately, can strip natural oils from your hair and scalp, when you do shampoo your hair, make sure it is the correct choice for your hair type and that you are not shampooing too often.  If you want your long hair to keep its color longer, it needs to keep well-conditioned. You can use leave-in conditioners, coconut oil, and even regular conditioner more often than shampoo. You can use a light shampoo and conditioner like Kerastase Crystallite when you do shampoo and condition your hair.

Do the Upkeep

Believe it or not, one of the best ways to take care of your long hair is to actually trim dead/split ends often by an experienced hair stylist at an amazing beauty salon and spa.

At Red Market Salon Miami we will create a plan for you to keep up luscious long hair that looks perfectly healthy at all times.

Red Market Salon Miami: The Infamous and ever so Rebellious Pixie Cut

Cute-pixie-cut-styles-2013

Pixie cuts first became a trend in the 1960’s thanks largely to Twiggy and Mia Farrow. In an era where women’s hair was still considered sacred, it took guts to go against the mainstream. But with their delicate features, each looked so gorgeous that other women followed suit and a trend was born.

In recent years, dozens of celebrities have sported their own interpretations of the classic pixie cut with varying degrees of success. Stars such as Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Hudson, have given the look a whirl. Some, like Ellen Degeneres have made it their signature look. There’s no question that it makes daily styling a lot easier, but you need a certain confidence in yourself to wear a pixie, an “I’m comfortable in my skin” mentality to pull the look off successfully. You’ll want to adjust your makeup as well, to play up your best features.

Most importantly, you need to find a stylist who understands the idiosyncracies of your hair, such as cowlicks, texture, etc., to ensure you’ll get a cut that works best with your features and your type of hair. That’s half the battle. Finding a top hairstylist from a 5 star salon in your area is a must. Don’t entrust the look to a run-of-the-mill hair salon. Find someone who’s skills you trust and stick with them for maintenance, because a pixie requires maintenance cuts every four to six weeks, depending on how fast your hair grows. If you live in Southern Florida, check out Red Market Hair Salon in Miami for a stylist with the expertise to deliver a pixie cut done so well, it’s likely to become your trademark look!

Red Market Salon Miami: Curly is the New Straight

5 star hair salons

In our many years of professional salon experience, we have seen that most people with curly hair struggle to find the proper way to handle it.

Learning to manage it and embrace the texture often leads to amazing results. It’s important to learn how to care for your hair if you want it to look lush and beautiful instead of frizzy and unmanageable. You want to find a balance between taming your hair and embracing your hair’s natural style. Enhance the beauty and health of your curls with these curly hair tips gathered from some of the  best hairstylists in Miami

Diffuse

It’s not a good idea to use too much heat on curly hair because it alters the proteins in your hair and causes your curls to become limp and lifeless. If you choose to dry your hair instead of air drying, definitely use a diffuser. A regular hair dryer focuses on one section of your hair at a time. This can mess with the flow of your curls. A diffuser distributes air evenly, and it leaves the structure of your curls in tact. Diffuse your roots first to lock in volume, then work your way down to the ends. Leave your ends semi-wet if you can since they’re normally more damaged. 

T-Shirt Trick

Using a T-Shirt instead of a towel to dry your hair will dramatically reduce the frizz you often struggle with. It may sound silly, but it definitely works. Squeeze the excess water from your hair first since T-Shirts are less absorbent. You can even wrap the towel around your head after applying some product, and sleep on it. It’ll help keep your curls from deflating during the night. 

Condition

Conditioners are crucial to the care of curly hair. Your curls prevent natural oils from getting all the way to your ends. That’s why the lower half is more damaged and dry. As important as conditioners are, it’s just as important to not use too much shampoo. Cut back on how often you shampoo your hair, or cut it out all together. Replace your shampoo with a cleansing conditioner. It won’t produce a foamy lather, but it’ll greatly reduce frizz. 

Product

Find the perfect products for your curly hair. Try Discipline Oleo-Curl. This amazing leave-in creme adds definition to even the most unruly hair. It’ll leave your hair soft and smooth while eliminating frizz. Another great product is Curl Fever radiant curls shaping gel. This hydrating, yet lightweight, gel will add moisture to your curls without weighing them down or restricting your hair’s natural bounce. It also provides protection against heated styling. Both of these great products by Kerastase have become very popular among those with curly hair. 

Your curls are a part of you, so take care of them. Following these helpful tips will increase your good hair days and help you get the desired looks you want from your locks. For an evening out, curls can be styled to perfection by visiting top beauty salons.

Red Market Salon Miami: Touch of Rainbow

opal_hair_trend

A few decades ago, rainbow hair color was a trend reserved for rock stars and

teenagers. Now anyone can rock a touch of rainbow hue in their hair. There are

tons of ways to incorporate vibrant color into your style, from subtle streaks to a

full spectrum rainbow. Talk to your stylist about trying one of these colorful looks.

Surprise Streaks

Love the rainbow color trend but still need a style that will work for the corporate

world? Get color that you can show off when you want and keep on the down

low when you need to. Ask your stylist at Red Market Salon Miami to place

streaks of bold color in the bottom layers of your hair. Pull your hair up and voila

— instant rainbow!

Face-Framing Color

Just like traditional highlights, colorful streaks can instantly brighten and frame

your face. If your hair is lighter, go for pink, like Rachel McAdams. Darker tones

look lovely with shades of blue.

Bright Ombre

Want to go a little bolder? Try a colorful ombre dip-dye. Deep purple ends fading

into pastel violet and your natural color at the roots is a little bit sweet and a little

bit punk. Up for a really unique look? Try a reverse rose gold ombre. Sweet pink

roots fade into pastel and gold or platinum blond ends. This technique is done by using Balayage.

Be sure to find a balayage expert in a top beauty salon.

Full-Spectrum Shades

If you want your hair to really steal the show, mix shades of more than one color.

Try alternate streaks of red, orange and yellow in dark hair, or blend pastel violet

and pink in lighter shades. For the truly colorful, add a full rainbow on the

underside of your hair, or have a rainbow arch away from your temple.

All of these trends that incorporate bold colors must be done by top colorists, usually located in 5 star salons.

It is a complex process to keep the hair healthy and looking subtle and this can only

be accomplished by a top hair salon who uses the best haircare such as

Kerastase and is highly in tune and up to date with these trends.

RED MARKET SALON MIAMI: LONGER HAIRSTYLES FOR MEN ARE AS POPULAR AS EVER

Screen Shot 2016-07-19 at 8.31.47 AM

As the best salon in Miami can attest, more men than ever are wearing their hair longer, instead of opting for short, clean cuts. Longer hairstyles for men have always been around in one incarnation or another,  as symbols of particular lifestyles, such as that of the surfing enthusiast. However, longer locks on men have been increasingly  making their way into global media, and can now be seen on many famous actors, models and professional businessmen.

2016 Best Haircuts
The 2016 best haircuts include long styles for men that were not seen in the best 2015 haircuts.  For instance, the fade undercut with long, wild hair is popular in 2016, with its shaved sides and long on top look. We are also seeing more texture in today’s long hairstyles.

The Half Up Semi-Bun
Brad Pitt is frequently spotted wearing a half-up, half-down, semi-bun, which requires him to pull up half of his long hair. This is a simple look that involves dividing the hair into two equal sections, horizontally.  The upper section is secured in back with a hairband. Keanu Reeves and Tom Cruise are other celebrities often seen wearing this style.

Braided Rows
Top Miami Salons report frequent requests for a men’s long hair style that was once considered a feminine style only.  Braided rows begin at the hairline and move backward toward the top of the head in neat, uniform rows.  Influenced by hip hop culture, the look has permeated the mainstream.

Shoulder Length with a Side Part
Johnny Depp has rocked the shoulder length look, adding a touch of maturity to his youthful face. This is a style that requires a deep side part with a sizeable section of the hair swept over the head to one side. This style is a great choice for formal events.
Stylists predict that more new long hair styles for men will make their way into the mainstream over the next 5 years, to coincide with the short cuts, rather than to compete with them.

At Red Market Miami, we have noticed that variations in length have become more prevalent in men’s everyday life. Fashion trends are now present at the workplace and men are exercising a lot more freedom in their business look, regardless of their profession.

“It is a trend that we enjoy working with because our male clientele don’t always realize how many options of hairstyles are available to them and their hair type” Says Top Stylist Rogelio from Red Market Salon Miami.

RED MARKET SALON MIAMI: BEST BALAYAGE HIGHLIGHTS

fea41884f7c5f624132838a330031420

Ever heard of Balayage highlights? They are the new hot trend of 2016 that anyone can try. Balayage is the french word meaning “to sweep” or “paint”, which describes the technique used by stylists to achieve natural highlights on hair. Read on below to check out how it’s done and why you should try it out!

How is it Done?

The beauty of the Balayage technique is that it creates wonderful highlights throughout hair that looks much more natural than the traditional. The way stylists are able to create such natural looking highlights is because they “paint” the strands of hair during the lightening process. This painting is done freehand with a gradient effect, meaning, less product is used towards the roots, and is gradually increased towards the ends of the hair. Balayage is done freehand by your hairdresser without the use of foil, in order to create the perfect transition between your natural hair color and the highlights.

Is it Hard to Maintain?

Highlights done with the Bayalage technique are extremely easy to maintain because of their gradient effect. Balayage highlights grow out beautifully and seamlessly, which leads to stretching the time in between appointments. In comparison to traditional highlights done with foil alone, Balayage allows the client’s new growth to come in with a much more natural appearance. However, with traditional highlights, your natural hair color comes in with a blunt color difference when growing out, that requires frequent touch ups to maintain the style. 

Can Anyone try This?

The great thing about the Balayage technique is that it looks fabulous on everyone. The best stylists with darker haired clients may combine the freehand painting technique with foil in order to properly lift color from the hair. Anyone would be able to maintain this style just as they would any other color service. Using appropriate shampoos and conditioners such as the Kerastase line that is meant for color-treated hair are recommended to keep the highlights intact between appointments.

RED MARKET SALON MIAMI: REINVENTING THE PONYTAIL

The ponytail– the most basic of hairstyles, right? Wrong! Celebrities, stylists and social media fashionistas have been reinventing the ponytail for the new millennium. Even if you don’t have super long hair, you can easily bump up your ponytail style. Check out these fun ponytail styles for every occasion.Ponytail-Hairstyles-For-Work-with-Bangs

The Formal Pony

 The ponytail can work for the most formal of occasions, especially when paired with a braid crown. Start with a french braid across the crown of your head from temple to temple, then gather loose curls into a low ponytail. You can also use a faux-braid headband and disguise the ends of the headband with loose strands tucked behind each ear. 

The Weekend Ponybasic-ponytail

Braids and ponytails work well for fun and casual occasions as well. Braid a single, thick chunk of hair from the crown of your head to the end. Gather the braid and the rest of your hair into a medium to high ponytail and, voila, you have a fresh ponytail for summer parties. 

The Work to Play Pony

This style works for day-to-night looks and for long and short hair. Create a volume at the front of your head by backcombing the hair at your crown. Smooth the hair along your forehead back over the volumized section and gather the rest of your hair into a voluminous-high-ponytailhigh pony. Use a piece of hair from underneath the ponytail to wrap around the elastic band. Secure the wrapped hair with bobby pin.  

Ponytails work for so many occasions and are a classic look that will always be in style. At Red Market Salon Miami we can help you choose the perfect style whether you are running off to a work meeting or wanting to look glam for a Gala.

RED MARKET SALON MIAMI: HAIR VS MOISTURE

7b9d377c5b4e7d31a8b7f712f10d7493

Like skin, hair needs to be moisturized too, even if it seems like the climate you live in is humid enough that you don’t need to or you’re rocking the best Balayage highlights in Miami. Neglecting to moisturize your hair, or over-using heat tools will leave it porous, and susceptible to absorbing floating moisture in the air around you. So a great style for hot humid summer days begins with moisture. 

Start by using a deep conditioner in the shower, but focus on the midshaft and ends, to avoid an oily scalp and maintain your natural volume. In addition, aim for applying a leave-in treatment once every week or two weeks, to deeply condition the hair. With the added heat of the summer sun, you really do need this added moisture in your hair to prevent frizz.

Next, just like your skin, you should rinse with cold water to seal the hair’s cuticle from outside moisture. You can help this by applying a light styling balm suited for your hair texture.  

When it comes to styling, try to give the hair a break from heat styling whenever possible. If you must blow dry, use a thermal-activated product like Kérastase Discipline Fluidissime, which helps fight frizz from humidity, as well as damage from heat styling. Also, make sure to use the proper technique. Blow dry with a round brush, taking care to aim hot air downward, rather than blowing air against the direction of hair growth. Blow drying properly helps the cuticle to lay flat, which will give you a sleeker style. Bursts of cool air in between sections also help the hair from getting too dried out. 

Finish the style with your favorite hairspray. Balancing moisture in humid climates can be tricky, but with the right technique and quality hair product, you can maintain your style even during the hottest summer day.
