Color-Full Fall Trends

Posted September 21, 2016 at 3:50 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

What color to do for the Fall season? Here are some trends that are going to be big!

Soft Jet Black

While jet-black hair can often look unforgiving on some skin tones and hair textures; a more muted and soft jet black is wearable and natural looking on any skin tone. Soft jet black has both lowlights and highlights throughout causing a more dimensional look and therefore causes a less harsh look than its jet-black counterpart.

 

The Roots

The dark rooted trend is continuing over from these past few seasons. Where instead of maintaining your root touch-up appointments you let your hair grow and fade out an inch or two. Don’t get us wrong this has to be done properly- often clients have to have their hair faded from the root a little so the contrast isn’t too stark.

 

 

Au Naturel Reds

This autumn, go for a more natural looking red in comparison to the past few seasons of vibrant berry looking reds. You want people to wonder if it is your natural hair color or not. Think more along the lines of Emma Stone in “Easy A,” or Sophie Turner as she plays Sansa Stark in “Game of Thrones.”

 

Hit the Waves Blonde

Hydration Station (not just water)

Posted September 8, 2016 at 6:56 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

The heat gets the best of us, especially those of us that don’t enjoy chugging water (hey, it’s not for everyone). Listed are some fruits and veggies that can help with the hydration process.

images-7

Cucumbers are 96% water and also packed with vitamin K and iron. Plus they aren’t just for salads- try dipping them in hummus as an alternative.

 

 

 

 

images-3 Celery is another water filled friend ringing in at 95% water and they are also high in potassium (a good alternate if your not a fan of b-a-n–a-n-a-s). Make it fun by filling it up with almond or sunflower butter, which will fill you up as you hydrate.

 

 

 

Iceberg letuce is on the same playing field as images-2cucumbers with 96% composition. However, that’s mainly it- there aren’t a ton of nutrients like with spinach or romaine. You can easily make them fun, by using them to serve other food you have made, like chicken lettuce wraps. Delish!

 

 

 

images-10Strawberries come in at 92% water composition; this sweet fruit can be added to your water as well so you can munch throughout the day. High in vitamin C they are an immune booster too.

imgres-1Watermelon, doesn’t it just remind you of sweet Summertime? Watermelon hits us with a make-up of 92% water. You can make regular water fun by adding a few pieces to your glass, or juice it for what it’s worth and drink it solo!

 

 

 

imgres-2Tomatoes! no, ketchup does NOT count, they are composed of 94% water and a ton of vitamin C. Like the cucumber you can dip them in hummus, add them to a salad, or eat them solo like an apple.

These are just a few of the powerful fruits and veggies can make staying hydrated easier. Don’t be shy, drop the cup (most of the time) and chow down on your H2O.

From A to Zinc

Let the sunshine in… but beat the harmful rays with some top-notch sunscreen so the only reason your grin (not grimace) is because your skin is protected!

Recently, at the beach, I thought I was doing everything right! Applying sunscreen 30 minutes before I went in the sun, reapplying every hour or so, sitting in the shade during the sun’s peaking hours… to no avail. I returned home with what I thought was heat rash, because how could it possibly be anything else when I had been so diligent about the application of sunscreen?

Applying sunscreen 30 minutes before I went in the sun- check!

Reapplying every hour or so- check!

Sitting in the shade during the sun’s peaking hours- check!

But to no avail. I returned home with what I thought was heat rash, because how could it possibly be anything else when I had been so diligent about the application of sunscreen? NOPE. Turns out I had something way worse- SUN POISONING.

But how you ask? The type of sunscreen I was using.

I asked my Dr. which kind of sunscreen he finds works best. He told me he only uses mineral-based sunscreen and that it should ALWAYS have the word zinc included in the listed ingredients. He suggested two lines for me to try: Badger, and The Honest Company’s “Honest Sunscreen.”

But wait! He warned me to be wary of non-mineral based sunscreens due to the increasing amount studies showing that the chemically produced UV blockers are causing hormone fluctuations and a relation with new skin sensitivities. The worst of which according to EWG is oxybenzone, which mimics estrogen production, alters sperm production and causes endometriosis in women. YIKES! Check the labels ladies & gents!

I don’t know about y’all but I am going mineral from here on out, ZINC ME UP!For other great mineral-based sunscreens to try EWG for ratings from 1-10.

BOTOX- When to Say When

Posted June 20, 2016 at 6:32 pm By Re Salon & Med Spa

IMG_5337-1

When most people hear Botox they simultaneously think of the words “frozen, still, plastic…” you get the point. Let me reassure you, when properly injected NO ONE (unless you tell them or they have Botox too) will know you had anything done. I mean, if Botox is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure on the market, there’s got to be more to it, right?

IMG_7063 2

In an interview with Kiera Aaron from Shape Magazine, dermatologist Joshua Zeichner gives us the deets on why Botox jumped a whopping 18% from 2014 to 2015. Not only are more people getting injected; more YOUNG people are having the procedure done!

Preventative – don’t we all love that word? This is reason numero uno why people, females and males alike, are getting Botox at a younger age. Zeichner explains that over time collagen in the skin grows weak and doesn’t “bounce” back as we get older. Additionally, repeated facial expressions create folds in your skin which combined with this weak collagen means one thing – wrinkles. Botox combats these issues by freezing particular muscles in the face and thereby smoothing out and/or preventing deep lines from forming! Also, there isn’t any downtime, so you can go straight back to work or on that hot date you’ve been anticipating. Sounds like a miracle, right!?

IMG_7060

Here’s the thing – “procedure” can be a scary word. However, Botox only last’s for 3-5 months! So if you don’t like it (which of course won’t happen), simply don’t get it again. Whether you’re in your 20’s and looking to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming, or in your 50’s looking to erase current lines and wrinkles – Botox is for you! So hey, why not give it a shot (pun intended)!

Dash says, “How cute is my client Katie?! She came in with mostly natural hair and wanted to be brightened up. She is a mom of and needed something low maintenance. I decided balayage was the best way to go because of its soft grow out. I used Loreal Infine Platine for her highlights and toned her with a sandy golden mix from Diarichesse. I also freshened up her cut by adding a few long layers.”
