Perfect Hair for a Perfect Day


Your wedding should be spent enjoying your day and the people around you, not worrying if your hairstyle is still in place. The day of your wedding will be a long one, and all precautions for effortless beauty care should be taken care of! As professional hairstylists, we request a few steps to be taken prior to the hairstyling to ensure a long lasting and beautiful style! They include:

 

Day 2 Hair: While this may be arguable, day 2 hair actually holds style much better. Just-washed hair can hold too much moisture and bounce to fully handle any heat styling that will last. After washing, be sure to leave your hair natural and avoid heat treatments, since it can be difficult to reverse the effects of already heat-styled hair.

 

Product Free: Depending on your hair style, products may be used to keep the look in place such as hairsprays, gels or molding cremes. Coming in with a fully natural head of hair will make it a clean slate for any styling without any danger of over using products.

 

Pictures: A photo speaks a thousand words, and we want to know exactly what you picture for your special look. Coming in prepared will make the process much smoother and faster, so we recommend bringing in as many photos of inspiration as you can, so we can give you the desired look.

 

We want you to look and feel your best on your special day! With proper hair care you can spend the day hassle-free (at least regarding your hair)! Let Caralyn’s, your hair experts, style your look for your wedding!





Short and Sweet


 

 

Going bold and taking a risk with your hair is definitely something everyone should do at least once, and what better way than to chop it off? More and more we are seeing shorter hair cuts for women come into style- take a look at Kim kardashian who chopped off her long locks for the sleek bob. Going short does not always have to be to the extreme buzz cut such as Cara Delevingne’s look. The most popular looks we’ve been seeing are:

 

Lob: The lob is officially everywhere! This look is a cross between long hair and a bob – the perfect medium length. This style looks good virtually every way, with big curls or pin straight locks. Shoulder length hair is no longer a length to dread, but embrace as one of the seasons hottest styles!

 

Inbetweenie: As you may notice, in-between lengths are a trending style, as they tend to be less high maintenance and more relaxed looks. The “inbetweenie” is referring to the grow-out length between a short pixie cut and a bob. This look can be styled in multiple ways, with shaggy bangs or tucked behind the ears. This look can be done up in so many ways and always looks put together.  

 

Slick: Medium or short length, slicking back the hair is a go to, with either a gelled look or simply tucked behind the ears. Slicking your hair back is a gender neutral hairstyle that will rock any look.  

 

Make a change this season and go short! For a fresh start with your hair and style contact Caralyn’s, your hair design experts. 





How to Keep Your Scalp Healthy


 

 

 

If you suffer from dull hair, itchy roots, excess oil or even hair loss, an unhealthy scalp may be the cause! Healthy hair comes form a healthy scalp, so its extremely important to focus your attention on how to take care and maintain a healthy head of hair. At Caralyn’s, we have the best scalp experts, that can help diagnose scalp issues, and what products to use to improve.

 

There are many symptoms of having an unhealthy scalp. To name a few, itching, burning, excessively oily or dry hair and in the worst case, hair loss. Easy ways to improve the health of your scalp at home are:

 

Daily Brushing: Gently brushing your hair is a great way to stimulate your strands and spread excess oils. It will remove any dead flakes up top and prevent clogged hair follicles.

 

Gentle Shampoo: Use a natural, cleansing shampoo and avoid harsh scents and ingredients. Try to shampoo your hair every 2-3 days, rather than every day to avoid stripping your scalp of natural oils.

 

Conditioning: Despite what you heard, conditioning the scalp can actually be beneficial to your hair – especially if your scalp is on the dryer side. Since shampoo is a cleansing product, it will remove any oils, where the conditioner will replace the moisture and return the scalp back to a natural balance.
