What’s Trending: Vintage Hair Accessories

Let the hunt for antique treasures begin! Vintage hair accessories aren’t just for the latest runways of Alexander McQueen and Versace. Whether just a means to keep your hair in place or an added unique flair to your ‘do, these must have pieces are starting to show up right here in the streets of Dallas, TX.

The best part is that you won’t need an invitation to the next gala event to sport any of these looks. A gemstone headband can easily dress up a plain white t-shirt along with other casual pieces. A petite hair comb set with pearls doesn’t necessarily have to be for brides only. Pair it with a messy up do and a sleek, black dress for a night on the town look. Whether applied on wash-and-go hair, crazy curls or straight strands, any hair type is the perfect partner for these accessories.

If you find yourself on a budget, you don’t have to solely rely on what’s available in stores to complete your salute to antiques. As it goes with clothes and shoes, buying off the rack can tend to get pricey. As an alternative, hit up your local craft supply store and let you imagination run wild. Grab some interesting patterned ribbon or lace that can be wrapped around a headband. Hot glue an array of gaudy beads to a barrette. Attach grandma’s brooch to a bobby pin.

Let your creativity flow! Show us your DIY vintage hair accessories on Facebook and Twitter!

The stylists at our Dallas hair salon want to give you four reasons why blonde hair and dark eyebrows is the perfect winning combination.

Our expert hair stylists have found when contrasting these two colors, the attention is immediately drawn to your face, and we definitely love that! We want to store the confidence in your personality to pull this off!

Reason 2 – Anyone can pull it off!

Anyone can try this trend and that is another big reason why we love it so much. We believe any women can wear any color due to the fact that anyone can have a different skin tone. No matter what your color choice is for your hair or brows, we just want to make sure it is complementary to each other. If you have any questions about that, ask one of our hair color experts.

Reason 3 – You can control your blonde hair to your dark brows.

There is more than one variations you can choose for this color scheme. The best part is, you can control what you want no matter if you just want a simple color change or want as much intensity as possible.

Reason 4 – It’s easy to maintain.

We can always touch you up with our world class products from Kerastae and L’Oreal Professionnel and we also have advice for in between appointments.

Halloween Hair Care – Survival Tips for Your Strands

Every year it seems that more and more people are ditching the cheesy Halloween wigs and using their own hair to bring the scares. But one of the scariest things about the season is overlooking Halloween hair care. Whether you’re spraying your strands green or back combing them to infinity and beyond, here at Gioia we have the top of the line products you need to repair and soothe your hair after the haunts are over. Everything from hydrating hair masks to massaging scalp treatments, Kerastase products at Gioia Hairdressing are guaranteed to bring your hair back to life!

Treat yourself this Halloween to our collection of Kerastase products at our exclusive Kerastase Store.

But you don’t need to wait until after Halloween has wreaked havoc on your locks to bring them back from the dead. Here are some Halloween hair care tips to proactively protect your hair before the big night:

Halloween Hair Care – Survival Tips

Survival Tip #1: Turn Down the Heat

Hair dryers, flat irons, curling wands; most of us are familiar with the use of hot tools in our every day lives. So come Halloween, we tend to go over the top with our heat styling to help us complete our transformation. Give your hair a break prior to the party by laying off the heat for a couple of days.
Pro Tip: It’s good practice for every day use with hot tools to use a quality thermal protectant when it comes time for styling.

Survival Tip #2: Get Creative with Props

Does your costume require you to pump up the volume with your ‘do? Before you go crazy with the back combing, think of every day items that can help you achieve new heights. Styrofoam, wire, paper cones – these are all excellent, light weight objects that can easily be hidden in your hair to take it to the vertical limit.
Pro Tip: A great alternative to excess teasing is to incorporate volume-boosting products into your everyday routine.

Survival Tip #3: Hydration is Key

Given the amount of wear and tear we put our skin through every day, it seems obvious to care for our canvas by exfoliating, toning, and moisturizing. But what about scalp care? Don’t overlook this important component of overall hair health! Prep for fright night early by using a nourishing scalp treatment or, for everyday use, a revitaizating conditioner.
Pro Tip: Hydration comes from the inside out! Be sure to drink plenty of water to keep the body and the scalp properly hydrated.

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

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!

Protect

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!

How to Style The Perfect High Ponytail

The perfect high ponytail is back with a bang this season. We are seeing this hot trend all over the runway. It’s popularity is due to it’s geometric appeal because it creates a “very strong” feminine shape. This look will accentuate your feminine facial features and will add the wow to finalize your look.

How to Get The Look

At Gioia Hairdressing the hair stylists know a thing or two about modern fashion. Although all of our hair stylists have different ways on doing things, they can all agree on one thing… No matter what, the ponytail is always done best when divided into two different sections.

The High Ponytail

First you will want to create a halo-like section on top of your head and secure it with an elastic hair tie. Next brush the loose hair under the elastic upward toward the head. Be careful and make sure your hair is nice and smooth without interfering with the top section. Brush a soft gel into the loose section to give your hair a sexy sleek look. Then, tie the two sections together with another elastic hair tie.

Finalize The Look

Take a small piece of hair and wrap it around the elastic to hide the band. You’ll just need to bobby pin it in place under the first layer so it blends smoothly. A spritz hairspray will help keep this entire look in place. Also, instead of using your own hair to hide the elastic, you can use a piece of textured material to give yourself a more graphic look.

Words From Our Dallas Hair Salon

If you have an ombré and are looking for another way to showoff your color, the high ponytail is a fabulous way to do so. You can pair this sophisticated look with a pair of dazzling dangling earrings, a bright lip color, and some bold eyebrows to really set it off! Our team looks forward to styling you next! Request an appointment today!

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!

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.
