There are many things you need your hairstylist for – perfecting your color, applying extensions, and getting a flattering style, to mention just a few. But if you don’t have time for a hair appointment right now, you can still use quality salon tips to maintain your hair’s gorgeous factor from the best hair salons in Miami.
Touch up Your Roots
If your roots are showing but you aren’t able to head to a hair salon, keep them out of sight by using a hair pencil, eye shadow or even mascara on them. Just make sure that the color is a close match to your dyed hair. The bonus is that you don’t need to use a lot of product and coverage tends to last all day.
Pro tip: At your next hair appointment, opt for a glaze treatment if you do go many weeks between coloring your hair. This is an easy way to bring shine and subtle color to your hair without the full commitment of hair dye. Plus, it doesn’t show any outgrowth because color merely fades, allowing you to glaze over it again.
If your hair is looking limp and lifeless, you could be in need of a cut. Before you book that hair appointment at the salon, fake bounce and volume with these tips:
- Use a volume-boosting product that you can spray into your damp roots before styling your hair.
- Bellezza Spa hair stylists offer great tips for achieving blow-dried hair that looks fabulous and is full of volume. For short hair, it’s good to blow-dry against the grain and use a bit of mousse to keep hair in place while giving it a bouncier appearance. For longer hair, after washing your tresses you should apply a mousse and then blow-dry your hair with a paddle brush. Hold hair at a 90 degree angle while drying it to pump up the volume!
- Use curling rollers. These are great to pop into your hair while you’re busy with other things and then taking them out 20 minutes later to reveal pretty volume. The bonus is that they work on dry hair.
Turn Unruly Hair into Beachy Tresses
When hair becomes unruly between hair appointments, it can be tougher to style. Instead of trying to force your hair to do what you want, work with what it wants to do. Applying a salt spray to hair gives it texture without requiring any styling. Simply spritz it on your hair on mornings when your hair is misbehaving and you’ll achieve Miami beach-worthy, tousled curls.
Of course, frizz is a no-no! You can make your own coconut spray to use daily on your hair to keep your hair frizz-free. The bonus is that coconut also keeps hair hydrated and prevents breakage.
Try Different Looks
You can make your hair look great even if you need a cut by trying quick and easy styles. Hair braids were trendy in the 2015 spring fashion runway shows, and they come in handy if your hair’s looking untidy or needs texture. Ponytails are another winner. Pull your braid or ponytail back and wear them high for a sleek look, or opt for a side-swept style if you want something stylish and casual.
When all else fails, a tip for great hair is to accessorize. Use accessories to bring an eye-catching quality to your look and pin rebellious pieces out the way. An example is to create a simple bun and then wrap a jeweled headband around it. By doing this you give the impression that you spent hours on your hair even though it was a five minute job.
You don’t have to battle hair that has a mind of its own between salon appointments. With some tips and tricks, you can make the best out of all your bad hair days.
