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!

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!

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.

Quick Fix for Roots Between Your Salon Visits

How to hide your roots between salon visits.

Some of you may never miss an appointment, but I’m sure chances are in the last weeks or days leading up to your next salon visit, you are rocking some visible roots. Lets face it, we have all been there and those pesky grays can be the defying factor in a bad hair day. So we are going to share with you some tips and tricks on how to hide that new growth between your visits. We want you to make it though each visit with confidence!

Change the direction of your part

One of the easiest solutions to disguising your roots is to change the direction of your part. Even if you always party your hair down the center, consider trying a flipped-over side part that gives you lots of volume to hide those visible roots. To create that extra volume, lift the hair up at the root and spray small amount of dry shampoo. Your hair will have some xtra lift to it to take the attention away from your roots.

Try a new style

Switching the direction of your part may be easier than trying a completely new hairstyle, but it take so much attention off any visible toots. It’s as easy as just adding some texture to your hair in the form of curls, waves, or simply just spraying texture to disguise those roots.

It’s more than fine to use these tips and tricks in between your Dallas hair salon visits, but we would recommend not prolonging between your appointments. The hair stylists at Gioia Hairdressing look forward to seeing you next time! You can book your next appointment here.

Color Trend: Copper Contouring

Copper contour is the hottest trend of any copper hair color. It has held it’s place at the top of the fashion industry because of it’s effortless look and ability to make people stand out from the crowd. This look goes way beyond just finding the right hue. By strategically placing high and low lights throughout the hair, our stylists are able to take this look to the net level by enhancing facial features with the right hair colors.

For example, a rectangular face shape can typically be accommodated by rounding out your hairstyle. In the case of pursuing copper contour, our stylists would strategically place lighter colors around the hairline to highlight cheekbones and soften the corners of the face.

Copper Contour

Cooper contouring is a way of customizing beauty. We never see two redheads that are the same. Adding the right tone brings a creaminess to the complexion. Our stylists at our Plano hair salon will advise you on how much color to add to your hairstyle. We will ask you if you want your hair color to whisper, talk or shout. No matter what you decide, we can get the look achieved right here at our Plano hair salon.

The Perfect Look

Our hair stylists will choose the perfects hair colors based on your skin tone. Typically with reds, it’s about finding the best undertone for your skin. Our hair stylists would recommend someone with a lighter skin complexion to try more violate tones. That would mean someone with warmer complexion would go with warmer shades of copper. With our amazing hair color products from L’Oreal Professionnel, our hair stylists can dig deep to get a wonderful reflection off your skin. We want you to feel sexy, luxe, modern, and classic all at the same time!

We look forward to seeing you at your next hair appointment! Contact us today for availability.
