How to care for your hair every morning

When it comes to our morning hair care routine, sometimes we overlook the simplest steps. No matter what your hair type or hairstyle is, we have the perfect morning hair care routine for you.

The Morning Hair Care Routine

1. Brush it out

After tossing and turning throughout the night, your hair is bound for a solid brush to get the knots and tangles out. You will want to start and the ends and work your way out to the tips. This process helps ensure to safely get the tangles out without damaging your hair and causing split ends.

2. Keep it grease free

As much as we love to take care of our skin and apply our favorite makeup. it’s the easiest way women get grease in their hair. The easiest and most simple way to ensure to avoid grease if to tie your hair up in a soft bun away from your face. Makes sure to wash your hands frequently when apply makeup in the morning.

3. Assess Your Tresses

When you wake up in the morning, make sure to take a look at your hair to determine if you need a wash or if you can get away with a little dry shampoo. It’s ideal not to wash and style your hair everyday to maintain the healthiest care for your hair. On the bright side, there are so many next day hairstyles you can try out in between washes and styling to give your hair the appropriate break.

This simple morning hair care routine is the key to maintaining healthy looking hair.

A simple and sophisticated hairstyle made easy

The knot, a simple and sophisticated hairstyle

The knot can be the perfect hairstyle for several different occasions. Perfect for an important meeting at the office, a night out on the town, or even just lounging around with the girls. The knot is truly simple and sophisticated, and we are going to tell you how to achieve this look.

How to get the look

The first step in styling this  look is to prep the hair with a texturizing spray. This will give your hair a very laid back feel. You will need to find a spray that provides a sexy but casual effect with a matte finish. We recommend using L’Oréal Professionnel’s Tecni.Art Beach Waves. Spray throughout and diffuse to dry.

Once your hair is dry, and you are happy with the texture, take small sections to make 3 braids on each side of your desired part. Leave the ends on each of the braids loose and collect all your hair at the nape of your neck and hold with a hair tie.

Using a different section of hair from the ponytail, wrap your hair around the hair tie. This will to hide the band and polish off this simple and sophisticated hairstyle. Finally, to have this look set you will use hairspray to hold.

How to find the best hair color for your skin tone.

Most of us have tried to pull off a hairstyle that we thought would look amazing. Maybe it was one a friend had or even a public figure, but at the end of the day it doesn’t look good on us. Well, the reason for that is probably due to our skin tone. Choosing the best hair color for your skin tone is the difference between a stunning and dull hairstyle. Most of us are most comfortable to either warm or cool tones. Beyond all the basic hair colors like brown, blonde, black, and red, there is a huge variety of different shades available. There are not many things worse than investing your money and time into a hair color that doesn’t fit your complexion right. So we are going to share with you the best hair color for every skin tone.

What is your skin tone?

The first step in picking the best hair color for you is to define your skin tone. As we talked about earlier, most people fall into two categories, warm or cool. Here’s a trick to find out what category you fall into. Put on a white shirt and stand in front of a mirror. The more natural light, the better. Turn your wrist upside down and see what color your veins are. If they are more of a blue, then you have a cool skin tone. If they are more of a purple, then you have a warm skin tone. Now that you know your tone, let’s get to the fun part!

Warm or Cool Tones?

Lets use this simple piece of advise…opposites attract. For a warm tone you will want to focus on a cool-toned hair color to complement your warm skin. Yes, that means if your skin in cool-toned, you will want to focus on going with warm-toned hair colors to suit your look best!

Now that you know the best hair colors to try for your skin tone, talk to one of our style consultants who can provide the best hair color recommendations to complement your skin best! We look forward t seeing you at your next appointment!

3 Updos Perfect For Work

Updos that are fashionable for work.

We all know how daunting it can be when we have to get up and get ready for work. Most women go through similar morning routines between their morning skin care , makeup, picking out clothes, and trying to figure out what to do with their hair. There never seems to be enough time. Instead of leaving the house feeling unsatisfied with your hair, try these 3 fashionable updos that are perfect for the work place.

The low ponytail

When you need to get your hair away from your face and want to look all business, a ponytail is key! When styled the right way worn at the nape of the neck, a ponytail is a true sign of class. The simplicity of the ponytail brings attention to the rest of your look, that’s the key. The first step to a successful ponytail is to make sure your hair is frizz free. You’ll want to take a paddle brush and part your hair down the middle or to the side and brush it straight back to ensure a smooth style. Once all the bumps are gone, you will want to gather your hair at the nape of your neck and secure a low ponytail.If you have any flyways left, take a small amount of wax or pomade and you will be ready to go!

The top knot

If you’re looking for something more fun, sexy and flirty than the ponytail, the top knot os for you. You will want to position your high bun in a place where its suits your face in the best way. This is the most important factor in perfecting the top knot. The goal is to find a spot on your head that is comfortable and secure but also shows symmetry. The top knot is gives your the looks and the smarts all in one hairstyle!

The Chic Chignon

For a super important meeting you might want to try something that screams classy. In this case you will want to go with one of the most sophisticated updos around, the chic chignon. Although the top knot is worn high at the top of your head, the chic chignon is worn at the center just above the nape of your neck. First you will need to find a product that will hold your hair in place for the entire day. The stylists at our Dallas hair salon recommend trying something like L’Oréal Professionnel’s True Grip. Next, gather your hair and secure a ponytail in the center of your head with an elastic hair tie. You will want to take the length and twist it around the ponytail that was just tied. Secure any flyaway hairs will bobby pins. Gently pull parts of your bunto separate and loosen your hair to get the shape you like best.

Flat Iron Waves

Warm weather is here and it doesn’t look like it will be going anywhere soon. It’s that time of the year where playing around with the flat iron couldn’t be any better. We are going to share with you how to get some attractive and effortless flat iron waves right here at our Dallas hair salon.

The Battle of The Bend!

So what’s the difference is curling your hair with a curling wand or a flat iron? Well, the difference is the shape. A curling iron is ideal if you’re looking for round curls and massive volume. However, if you’re looking for an effortless and beachy look, go ahead and grab that flat iron!

Get Control!

A great reason we recommended going for the flat iron is because you will have overall more control. No matter if you have a stubborn cowlick or just want your roots to look smoother, the flat iron will give you the control you need. You will want to smooth out your hair till about your cheekbone and then use your wrist to curl. This will give you some versatility and nice textures to get the flat iron waves you want.

Get The Look, Flat Iron Waves!

If your hair is naturally curly and you want to wear these smooth, you will want to blow dry your hair first to get that smooth texture. Next you will want to take your flat iron so you can easily transition from straight and smooth to curling your hair with the simple twist in your wrist. Finally, use a soft hairspray to apply some shine and hold your look in place.

Get Rid of Those Unwanted Fallaways

Between the hat hair, wind, and the on and off humidity in Texas, flyaways seem to never go away. Our Dallas hair salon has some awesome tips and tricks for you to keep those unwanted hairs tamed. So stop spending 30 minuets to an hour in front of your mirror trying to tame those unwanted strands only for them to act up again. Here’s how to fix them!


Hydration is the key to keeping away the frizz and flyaways during the summer months. There’s nothing worse than when your hair is parched and dehydrated. The best way to go about this is to treat you hair with a hydration routine that constantly conditions your luscious hair. In addition to using conditioner and a hydrating shampoo, our Dallas hair salon recommends using an overnight mask once a week to increase your softness and shine while keeping your hair hydrated.

Take Good Care

Taming your unwanted flyaways starts right when you get out of the shower. Make sure to use a cotton towel to blot and dry your hair to remove the excess water in it. Extra water can be a cause of flyaways on it’s own. You will want to blot your hair because rubbing it will cause extra friction and and breakage. Remember, be gentle!


Constant heat to your hair can cause breakage and unruly strands. Our Dallas hair salon recommends you always use heat protectant products before you style your hair and use and flat irons or blow dryers. This will keep your hair from breaking.

Dallas Hair Salon Tip of the Article

Hairspray may seem like the best way to get rid of unwanted stands but really it isn’t always the best for your hairs health. Our hair stylists have a secret tip to solve your problems. Try using Lumi-Contrôle Wax from L’Oréal Professionnel. We recomend using a dime size dab to get the job done.

Say goodbye to fallaways and schedule your next appointment today!

A Classic Hairstyle with an Updated Look!

The hair stylists at our Plano hair salon are going to teach you how to take the classic wavy Bob and tweak it to add a modern twist! Lets make this mainstream hairstyle one of the best in Plano by adding some side sweeping bangs to complete this look.

Wavy Bob

The traditional Bob is a hairstyle that is loved by many, but we all know sometimes we just need to stand out of the crowd. A wavy Bob with bangs is a perfect look for women with a narrow face or narrow chin. The goal is to add some width to their look by adding bangs that camouflage a large deep forehead.

Get The Look at Our Plano Hair Salon!

If your hair is naturally wavy, this can be an easy hairstyle for you to wear regularly due to your hair’s texture. Our stylists will make sure to layer your hair to draw more attention on your beautiful locks. Never forget to ask our hair stylists for product recommendations depending on how you want to style your hair. This is very important!

You ladies who have naturally straight hair, don’t worry, we have some advise for you, too! Try playing around with a few different size curling wands to create different sizes and texture to your waves. You will want to then apply some extended stay hair spray to hold this wavy bob in place. Always remember to apply the hair spray to the ends of your hair and never the roots for this look. This will keep your hair looking fresh all day long!

Simple Additions to Your Hair to Extend the Look!

Applying a dry shampoo will allow you to wear this look for a few days as it will remain to look fresh. Another easy trick we recommend is to use a satin pillow case at night or wear a hair net. This will reduce the friction and oil to keep your hair looking soft and sexy!

Make sure to contact our stylists today and find out how we can help you achieve this look. You can also request an appointment. We look forward to seeing you soon!
