Homemade Hair Masks: Get beauty salon care, at home

beauty-salon

Whether you have dry scalp or split ends, oily hair or split ends, hair care is an ongoing battle. Thankfully, when you don’t have time to visit us at Red Market Miami’s beauty salon as often as you’d want, there are options to keep your hair healthy at home combined with a great Kerastase regimen in between. For your consideration, here are several low-cost hair recipes for giving you the admirable qualities you want your hair to exude:

If you are looking to hydrate your dry hair and scalp, a rehydrating oil mask is for you. Heat 4 tablespoons of olive oil in the microwave for 20 seconds, add 2 tablespoons of honey and apply to your hair. Cover with a shower cap and leave on for 20 minutes, then rinse.

This avocado hair mask will restore shine, hydrate, repair and fight the frizz effect. Mix together 1 whole avocado, 2 eggs, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a bowl. Starting at the roots, work the mixture into your hair, then let sit for 15 to 20 minutes and rinse.

Problems with oily hair? Try this simple yogurt hair mask. Mix 1/2 cup (more if you have longer or thicker hair) yogurt, 1 teaspoon of apple cider vinegar and 1 teaspoon honey in a bowl and work into your hair. Let the mixture set for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse and wash hair with an organic fruit shampoo to battle any lingering yogurt odor.

If frizz is your foe, using this frizz-fighter mask once a month will help keep it under control. 1/2 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup honey and 1 tablespoon almond oil whipped together and applied to your hair and scalp will do wonders. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse.

To eliminate excess oil or grease and give your hair an attractive shine, use this strawberry hair mask. Blend together 6 or 7 strawberries, 1 tablespoon coconut oil and 1 tablespoon honey in a food processor or blender. Apply it evenly to damp hair and leave on for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse well with warm water. For more hair tips, visit our blog.

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 Top 7 Hair Color Trends of 2017

hair color miami
If you’re contemplating a trendy hair color, this is the perfect time to experiment and embrace a new, refreshing look. For a color pop to your hairstyle, check out these eight hair color trends of 2017:
Blorange
The trendiest hair color of the year is when blonde meets orange. This color hybrid ranges from soft pastel-like tones to a fiery sunset shade. The blorange around your face is particularly flattering because it highlights your face and flaunts the color. This combination complements both warm and cool skin tones, making it universal and flattering for all. 
Color melt  
The ombre was a big hit, but the color melt is the latest trend replacing ombre with its softer look. Unlike ombre, color melt creates a more natural transition from dark to light. There is no harsh transition, but rather a smooth look. This look is especially easy to do for those with ombre hair.
Bright blonde
Classic blonde hair never goes out of style, but this year it’s about being brighter and keeping highlights soft. Instead of chunky highlights, the roots of the hair remain close to the natural hair color, and fine strands of hair are softly saturated. The ends of the hair are where all the bright highlights are. And if you prefer lower upkeep, this is the hair color you want this year because the roots are so close to the natural color.
Reddish hues
If you’re a natural redhead or want to experiment with some red hues, then this is the year for it. Red tones are in. So if you already have red hair or red tint in your hair, ask your colorist to bring out those natural tones. For those looking to add some red into your hair, pick from a range of golden copper to a bright red for some spice to your hair color.
Gilded brunette
For brunettes, adding a touch of soft gold to the mid-length and tips of your hair will frame your face. This gilded touch creates a soft touch of gold highlights on dark brown hair color, providing a radiant look. This look is subtle and natural, yet fresh and sophisticated. 
Seamless lines
If you prefer just highlights, go for seamless lines this year. Unlike traditional highlights, smooth lines blend the next shade of color gradually like color melt, creating soft lines instead of harsh contrasting ones. This kind of highlighting works for all hair colors and is low maintenance as well. 
Cinnamon brunette
If you’re a brunette, consider adding a hint of red to your natural color. This color trend is officially called cinnamon brunette. Cinnamon Brunette is now considered the new blonde of 2017. Those with fair skin especially benefits from this because it adds warmth to the skin tone. The spicy red and deep brown combo creates a dramatic look and is refreshing for those wanting to highlight their natural brown. 
The hair colors of 2017 are sexier and stronger than ever. Whether you’re a blonde, brunette or redhead, the hair color options are all unique and gorgeous in their own way. Start now by expressing yourself in one of these colors and you’ll be have heads turning wherever you go.

Top Ways to Hide Your Roots Between Salon Visits

Hide your roots between salon visits

Hair color can do a lot for you, such as highlighting your face, providing volume to your hair, and adding some oomph to your style. However, when your hair starts to grow and your roots start to show and you have not had a chance to visit your salon, the look may not always be as appealing as you’d like. Here are some suggestions on how to hide your roots between visits to the salon:

Volumize

Flat hair shows your roots more. So while you’re in between salon visits and are in a bind to hide your roots, it’s important to add some volume to your hair. Lift your hair by adding texturizers or use dry shampoos.

Powder and Concealers

Root powders and concealers are other ways to spray or brush on color to your hair. Many brands will have different colors to suit various hair colors. These products can come in handy when you’re in a jam.

Root-friendly Hairstyles

Playing with updos are other ways to hide roots when you don’t want to wear your hair down. Do so with braids, French twists, or any other fun way to pull your hair back to blend and mix hair colors together in a way to hide roots.

Don’t fret if your roots are showing in between salon visits. Follow any of these suggestions, and you’ll have a temporary fix until you get your touch-up.

 

The preferred product at Red Market Salon Miami is:

Hairatin

Hide your roots between salon visits

uses keratin fibers to hide your roots. Hairatin, in particular, comes in different colors to match various human hair colors. The hair thickening fibers are like a mascara brush with color that you apply to your hair. Not only does it thicken your hair but it also works wonderfully for camouflaging roots.

  • Side-Swept Chignon

A side-swept chignon brings unexpected elegance. Easily achieve this look by starting with a side part and bringing the hair into a low ponytail on the same side as the part. Twist the hair until it starts to form a bun, and secure. Soften this look by pulling out some front pieces, and you have achieved an easy yet elevated updo.

  • High Ponytail

A high ponytail doesn’t immediately sound like a romantic updo, but a few tweaks can make this style classic and romantic. It also helps to cool you down on those humid Miami nights. Make this look work by creating big, loose curls in the ponytail. Tie with a ribbon and soften the hair in the front, and you have a ponytail worthy of a kiss goodnight.

  •  Braided Crown

Braids are timeless, and this style pulls them into a crown that is sure to complete your look. Starting with a deep part, begin braiding back on the larger side with two or three smaller braids. Finish by braiding back the smaller side, and weaving the ends under and securing with bobby pins. Make sure the braids are loose to achieve a soft, romantic look for an easy and simple Miami Hairstyle.

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.
