You know and I know that when you have blonde hair and it’s frizzy it doesn’t look as good as the stylist at the salon when she does it. So here are some fun tips to help prevent the frizz before you dry your hair:

1. Prestyling efforts are important. Try to towel blot and do not RUB the hair dry. EEEK! That just makes your hair worse or the one I love the most is the turban style of drying. That is also not a favorable effort because the ends where the water is held will have the towel absorb and then they will get dry and frizzy with the scalp still be damp or still wet. So instead try this tip by towel blotting which is squeezing the excess water out of the hair and then take the towel and squeeze at the scalp to get the excess out of there. Then take your product to prevent frizzy such as the Shine Drops from Wella Sebastian put a few drops in your hand add a little water to dilute so it doesn’t feel greasy and apply to the ends first than work it through the hair and scalp area.

2. while drying. rather than let your hair fly all over the place like a tornedo, direct the blow dryer with concenter (that’s on the end of the blowdryer that gives direction) towards the scalp first than take it to the ends. this will prevent your hair from getting frizzed out and knotty.

3. gym time. before sweeping the hair into a tight ponytail, mist your bursh with a leave in conditioner or hair spray. This will keep your hair in place while conditioning and holding it together. To prevent frizz, choose sprays that don’t contain water.

I hope these tips help. If you would like to watch my video from flat to fluffy on you tube, this will teach you how to create some curls with naturally wavy hair. It’s funny and informative.

Solid blondes with a hint of dimension brings out the shine

think about it. You have been coloring your hair for years but it lacks the luster and shine that you crave like the magazines. Ask for some dimensional hilites or lowlights if you are to light. This will break up the base color and make your other color pop and gives interest.  Try some alternate tones besides just the hilites such as strawberry blonde that makes your skin look more apricot. Or if you are a warmer brunette ask for toffee or break the base of your natural color that looks more sun kissed.

If you are a high maintenance blonde you know that it costs you more money every month and then you add hilites every other month, try keeping the hair toned with a color balance that will give you more of a softer creamier tone that is lower maintainance than hilites. Sure keep the hilites going but maybe do some packets vs all over.

Why not play up your curls by adding some gel to your curl while wet, wrap athe curls around your fingers and set with some clips till dry. When your hair is totally dry, unclip the clips and take some Wella Sebastian Liquid gloss through your hair and sex it up by tossing your hair upside down and shake it out baby! Beautiful romantic curls for the day. If you want to get a second day out of it put it up in an updo.

To expand your hair with some natural looking curls apply styling creme or mousse as Sebastian Forte to give more support to your hair when using a curling iron. We suggest a 1″ or more curling iron for long hair and wrap the 1″ curling iron around your hair vertical meaning up and ddown which gives more volume. If the hair is over blonded utilize the Sebastian Trililant to protect the hair that has been processed and over blown dried. If you can visualize a spiral is how you want the hair to look. Let the hair cool and then shake it out or individually separate the curl.  Then spray with the Sebastian Spray Forte.
