hair styling, Gorgeous Hair in No Time | Christie Adam VA

hair stylingAs much as we love our hair, it sure can be high maintenance. Consider this: on average women spend about three hours a week just washing, blow-drying, and styling their hair. Just think of how all that time can add up!

Fortunately, it’s possible to have beautiful, luscious hair without having to spend hours on hair maintenance. Here are some of our favorite tricks that could help you get a great head of hair with little to no time spend styling it.

Take a step back from the blow dryer
We could say that the best way to save time is to not blow dry your hair every time you wash it, but this is very unrealistic for some people. Instead, wait a couple minutes after you hop out of the shower to pull out your blow dryer. This is because dripping wet hair takes longer to dry, and your hair is more prone to breakage when it is saturated with water.

Don’t get a hair color that requires roots
Going to the salon and getting a fresh new cut and color can be therapeutic, but it does require a lot of maintenance. You don’t want to have to go to the salon every month or so to color over regrowth, so it’s always a good idea to choose a hair coloring technique that can grow out easily but still maintain its look. Our favorite is balayage, as it grows out beautifully without the need to touch it up every month.

Put the products down
Using too many hair styling products can actually cause your hair to look dull, limp, and lifeless. To get the gunk out of your hair, use a clarifying shampoo to really strip your scalp clean and then only use one or two specific hair products. Not only will they work more effectively this way, you won’t have to worry about that pesky buildup coming again from time to time.

There are plenty of quick hair styling tips that can make your hair look gorgeous in less than five minutes. We have some more ideas to share, so keep a lookout for our next blog!

4 Ways to Relieve Stress With Self Care

Top Massage and Spas in Great Falls, McLean VA

High stress levels can contribute to poor heart health and chronic illnesses. And more Americans than ever struggle with high stress and poor health levels.

That’s why the Health Resource Network has designated April Stress Awareness Month since 1992.

Self care involves many different ways of caring for your mental and physical health. Self care can be as simple as meditating at home, having fresh flowers at home, or it can be as indulgent as a good skin treatment, body massage, or hair cut. Pampering self care contributes to wellness.

Here are a few of many ways to soothe the stress in your life with indulgent self care.

1: Haircuts

An expert hair stylist can turn a basic hairstyle into a stellar haircut that makes you feel your best. Sit back and relax in our luxe chairs while our stylists work their magic. You’ll walk out feeling refreshed and looking your best.

2: Massage

Massages can help you detox from whatever has been weighing you down during the day. Releasing physical stress can help release the stress in your mind. Swedish and deep tissue massages offer ways to release tension that you didn’t even know was there.

3: Hair coloring

Alleviate stress by shaking up your current style. Get out of that hair and beauty rut and add highlight, a gloss, or an entirely new color. You can change what you see in the mirror and lighten your mood with your hair color.

4: Skin treatments

Facials can help lift more than skin — they can also lift a mood. Microdermabrasion and cleansing facials can help improve how you feel about your appearance as well as resurfacing that baby-soft skin. Organic ingredients, luxurious microdermabrasion, and revitalizing ginseng can pamper your stress away.

Caring for your mental health is relevant for all people in all stages of life. And stress can creep into every life. Busy with logistics, a packed schedule, and many tasks? Dealing with stress is more than a luxury — it is also a necessity. Take care of your mind by pampering your face, hair, and body at Christie Adam salon and spa.
