Blow Dry Tips

January 24th, 2015 by

Ever wonder why you can never get your blow dry at home to look as good as when the pros do it at the salon? Here are the top 4 reasons, along with some tips to defy them.

1. Not rinsing out all of your shampoo or conditioner.

Leaving either shampoo or conditioner in your hair will make it appear dull and waxy. Make sure you rinse for at least 2 minutes after applying each.

2. Not using products with a thermal protectant.

To protect your hair from damage from a blow dryer or iron, you should always make sure the product you use has a thermal protectant. Enjoy Thermal Protectant Spray, Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer, and Alterna Thermal Protection Spray are all excellent choices and all are available at the New You Salon.

3. Not sectioning your hair.

Instead of trying to dry your hair all at once, divide your hair into 4 to 6 sections and, starting at the front, blow dry one section at a time.

4. The professionals have more experience and expertise.

If, even after you try the above tips, you still don’t like the way your hair looks. Or if you just enjoy being pampered, or simply prefer to leave things to the professionals: book at blow dry at the New You Salon!

Holiday Beauty Tips

December 23rd, 2014 by

Well, it’s that time of the year again. The holidays are fast approaching and along with them all the associated community, merriment, and joy. It’s the time of year when people who haven’t seen each other for far too long come together for parties and events, and when countless photos are taken and posted to capture and commemorate said gatherings. It’s a beautiful time. And a great time to be beautiful. Here are a few tips to help you look your best this holiday season.

⁃ Thinking up-do? Spraying bobby pins with hairspray before using them increases their hold.
⁃ Looking to make it easy on yourself, schedule a deep conditioning treatment and blowout with your stylist.
⁃ Want your blowout to last? Switch to a satin or silk pillow case. It reduces “bed head”.
⁃ Invest in quality products. What you save in money, you pay for in aggravation.
⁃ For a strong hold, use Aerogel hairspray by Tri.
⁃ For shiny, smooth ends, use Alterna Bamboo Silk Sleek Brilliance Cream.
⁃ If you’re pressed for time or want to extend a blow-out, use Alterna Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo.
Make up:
⁃ Changes in body chemistry change the pigments that come out in makeup. If you’re looking at a long night at a warm, people-packed party make sure you test-drive your new shade to make sure it holds up.
⁃ Apply eye makeup first to avoid fallen pigments from sticking to your foundation.
⁃ Make-up is drowned out by camera flashes so don’t be afraid to wear a little more than usual when you know you’re going to be photographed.
⁃ Fill in brows and curl your lashes. These two things go a long way toward making you look young and awake.
⁃ Schedule a wax 2-3 days before a big event. Make-up applies smoother and lasts longer on fresh-waxed skin.

Hats off to the Royal Wedding!

April 13th, 2011 by

The invitation to the Royal Wedding failed to arrive. However; employees and “guests” of the New You Salon, located at 33400 Woodward Avenue in Birmingham, will attend the event of the year in spirit if not in person. The New You plans to celebrate the royal wedding in the true British tradition and style. The staff will wear hats while enjoying British teas and frosted fruit cake as they watch the televised pageantry. The Beckham’s and Elton John may need an invitation but the New You will be there for the wedding of the century.
