Hair that’s long, fine, and straight can suffer from also looking thin. That’s why blunt cuts are perfect for this hair type. Cut to one length, it creates the illusion of thickness and volume.
 
Blunt cuts frame the face and add volume.  Fine, long hair will definitely look thicker.  There’s no evidence of thinness here!

When Your Hair Colour Won’t Hold By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 3777
 
It’s maddening, isn’t it? And there is a name for it: resistant grey. It’s really hard to cover resistant grey hair with box colour.
 
Salons use different chemicals to pop open hair cuticles and soften the strands, allowing the color to penetrate more easily.
 
When it comes to the health of your hair, it’s best to let us do it. We love hair so much we spent a whole year in school to understand it and work with it!

How To Manage Unruly, Curly Hair

How To Manage Unruly, Curly Hair

How To Manage Unruly, Curly Hair By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 3777
 
Having curly hair can be tricky at times.  You try different hair products and  techniques in the hopes of having curly hair that’s manageable and easy to style and yet, nothing seems to work.
 
Here are some tips we gathered from our stylists to help you have  that manageable curly hair you can be proud of.
 
– Use products that are specially-formulated for curly hair . Since curly hair is drier and prone to tangling than other hair types, choose hair care products that have moisturising and detangling properties.
 
– When blowdrying curly hair, always use a diffuser. A diffuser helps in defining your curls.
 
– Do not go overboard with styling products. You only need a small amount of styling product to style your curly hair. Using  multiple products will only result in residue buildup that can weigh hair down.
 
There’s no need to spend a lot of time and money on your hair without getting the results you want.

5 Essential Hair Care Tips For Summer

5 Essential Hair Care Tips For Summer

5 Essential Hair Care Tips For Summer By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 3777
 
Aaah, summer! It means fun and sun. What’s not to love?
 
Just make sure you follow these 5 essential tips for hair that’s healthy and beautiful all season.
 
Enhance Your Shine. Don’t let summer sun dull your hair. Get a gloss treatment. It’s a lot like a topcoat for your hair, sealing in the hair cuticle and creating lots of shine. Your hair will look fresh even in the worst heat.
 
Trim your ends.  Don’t even think about skipping this essential tip! For beautiful, healthy hair, get your ends trimmed every 4-6 weeks.
 
Clarify your colour. Between chlorine and sun your hair doesn’t really stand a chance. Chlorine is very drying and can cause your hair to change colour. To prevent freshly coloured hair from fading, use a clarifying shampoo right after you get out of the pool, then condition.
 
Skip heat styling. Go for a ponytail, messy half updo, or hair accessories. Just give your hair a break from so much heat. If you must heat style, use a heat styling protectant!
 
Banish oily strands. Sun and fun can cause hair to get oily and greasy. Keep a dry shampoo handy to refresh your style.
 
Before you even get to the beach, use a moisturising shampoo. Leave in some conditioner to help your hair soak in much needed moisture and protect it from the sun’s rays.
 
There you have it. It just takes a little planning to keep your hair looking beautiful!

Diet Tips For Hair Loss Prevention

Diet Tips For Hair Loss Prevention By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 3777
 
We all want thick, healthy hair. And as we grow older, we spend time, money, effort to keep our hair lush and shiny.
 
And we should keep doing that as hair loss is a problem that plagues many. It can be caused a number of reasons such as malnutrition, stress, illness, improper hair care, and medication side effects.
 
The most common cause of hair loss is nutritional deficiency. If you notice that the amount of hair you are losing everyday increases, do consult a dermatologist so he can prescribe specific laboratory tests to determine if you have a nutritional deficiency.
 
But the good this is, hair loss prevention starts in the kitchen!  You can incorporate food items rich in omega 3 fatty acids in your diet to strengthen your hair and promote hair growth. Fish such as salmon, sardines, cod and mackerel are rich in omega 3 fatty acids.  You can also take food supplements containing borage oil, flaxseed oil, and even evening primrose oil.
 
Hair also needs GLA, gamma linoleic acid, to keep the hair shaft thick and strong. Black currant oil is rich in GLA and is widely available in capsule form.

How To Care For Wiry And Brittle Hair

How To Care For Wiry And Brittle Hair

How To Care For Wiry And Brittle Hair By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 3777
 
As we age, our hair goes through a natural ageing process as well.  The first few significant changes we’re going to notice is that it’s not as shiny as it used to be or that it breaks easily. It’s also a lot drier and coarser.
 
So what do you do if your hair starts to turn wiry and brittle?
 
First, find a shampoo that’s specially formulated  for your hair type. Choose one that cleanses hair thoroughly without drying it out.
 
Next, get regular deep conditioning treatments.  Deep conditioning is essential as it will nourish hair and maintain moisture, reducing dryness and brittleness.
 
Treat yourself to a regular scalp massage. A scalp massage helps remove product build-up and improves circulation and oil production, improving overall hair health.
 
It’s also important that you maintain a balanced diet to keep your hair healthy and shiny as you age gracefully.

Why Hair Turns Greasy

Why Hair Turns Greasy

Why Hair Turns Greasy By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 3777
 
Okay, so you wake up and notice that your hair has become increasingly greasy, especially near the roots.  It’s so oily that you need to wash your hair every day.
 
Yes, oily hair is so frustrating! Looking at the greasy strands make you want to scream.  You’ve tried a handful of products and yet nothing seems to work.
 
A number of factors such as genetic predisposition, the weather, or even hormones can be the culprit behind excessively greasy hair. Oil, or sebum, is generally solid at room temperature, but it starts to melt at body temperature. That’s why hair is greasiest at the roots.
 
The good thing is, there are ways to combat greasy hair and scalp. Here are a few suggestions:
 
– Shampoo hair by lathering hair at the roots and work your way to the tips.  Do this step gently so that you don’t roughen up your hair’s cuticle layer. Do not forget to wash the top and back of your head.
 
– Massage your scalp.  Treat yourself to a scalp massage as you shampoo to remove dirt and grimy residue. A scalp massage promotes circulation as well.
 
– Enrich your diet with vitamins A & D. These two vitamins specifically have been shown to reduce the production of sebum. You do need to be careful with the amount, so check with your dermatologist first!
 
– Use styling products formulated for oily hair. When choosing styling products, go for lightweight products because they don’t weigh the hair down or make it look greasy.

Why Doesn’t My Hair Colour Look Right?

Why Doesn’t My Hair Colour Look Right?

Why Doesn’t My Hair Colour Look Right? By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 3777
 
Maybe you saw it on your best friend, or in the latest beauty magazine, or it could have been a reality show. But wherever it was, you knew it was the perfect colour for you.
 
Except it didn’t turn out that way. Why?
 
The short answer: skin tone. And it’s what can make or break your colour.
 
Cool undertones are considered to be: pale with pink undertones or medium with pink and slight gold undertones, like olive, bronze, brown or dark brown skin shades.
 
If your skin is pale and has peach or gold undertones, then you’re considered warm.
 
For cool undertones: Choose tonal hair shades of blue and velvet. These reflect beautifully against your skin! You won’t look washed out.
 
For warm undertones: Choose rich browns, warm auburn or red with enhanced golden highlights. You won’t look drained of colour!
 
Staying true to what nature gave you will make you stand out every time.

Your Summer Hair Problems Solved

Your Summer Hair Problems Solved

Your Summer Hair Problems Solved By Hair Salon Wellington Point Call Us On 07 3207 37777
 
Instead of beachy waves, you’ve greasy and limp…or frizzy…or brittle hair.
 
Summer sun is very hard on hair. So how can you manage—dare we say, even tame—the elements?
 
It’s possible, so listen up!
 
Let’s start with chlorine water. It really can change the colour of your locks, especially if your hair is very light.
 
Chlorine can also make your hair very brittle. So before you jump into that inviting pool, soak your hair with plain water.
 
It will bind to your hair making it harder for the chlorine to get in. You can also use a leave in conditioner to achieve the same results.
 
Follow with a hair mask to repair damage and seal the cuticle.
 
Got greasy hair? In the summer, washing your hair, especially if it’s longer is fine. Sunscreen from your back and shoulders makes hair dirtier. Go for it!
 
Sun damaged hair. The sun breaks down strong keratin bonds causing weaker strands and fading colour. Use a UV hair product to protect those locks., then follow with a leave in conditioner.
 
Frizz. Stay away from heavy products. Use anti-frizz serum or stray and silicone-based products to tame and smooth.
 
Now you’re ready for summer fun!
