A Guide to Getting Hassle-Free, Gorgeous Hair in No Time at All: Part 1

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!

3 Spring and Summer 2017 Hair Trends

Spring Hair Trends

Warmer months invite you to step out of the comfort zone of winter fashion and spring into fresh trends. What better time to switch up your hair cut or color?

Take advantage of spring fever and redo your hair to transition into the hottest spring and summer trends.

1: Blorange

Your rose gold obsession can carry over to your hair and not just your jewelry. The new “blorange” trend is a mashup of “blonde” and “orange.” The result is a peachy warm color that pulls more neutral than neon. But blorange is not just a trend for the daring — it can be surprisingly wearable. The orange warms up a traditionally cool or basic blonde hue, while the blonde keeps the orange more toned down.

2: Vintage

Nostalgia is fashionable, and so are haircuts and colors from decades ago. The platinum blonde color popularly associated with glamorous red carpet looks or silent films can translate well into everyday life. A fresh platinum blonde color or a vintage bob cut can polish your style and add an extra pop of color.

3: Bayalage

The popular hair coloring technique of bayalage has been gaining notoriety. “Bayalage” comes from the French term for sweeping. To achieve the look, hairstylists paint on the dye to give a naturally graded effect. Not only does the result look more natural than other hair colors, but it is also easier to maintain and avoids the dreaded problem of starkly contrasting dark roots.
