mermaid back to school hair style for girls

Mermaid Hair

Mermaids are having a big moment right now in the Fort Lauderdale area and around the world. From mermaid t-shirts to sequined tail blankets, it’s an obsession. Summon your inner siren with minimal effort by using foam bun rollers. Wash and dry your thoroughly before bed and spritz your hair with your favorite frizz-free serum and a light gel or hairspray to hold the style. Section your hair into four or five equal sections. Gently twist one section at a time hair and wrap it around the foam bun roller. Bend the roller to hold the hair in place and leave it in place as you sleep. When you wake up in the morning, simply remove the rollers and run your fingers through your hair to blend the sections together. You will have fantastic mermaid hair in minutes that will last all throughout the school day. Want to go full mermaid with the sultry red or blonde locks? Explore our hair coloring services.

woman hair style Florida pin curls hair

Pin Curls

Dreaming of tight curls all over your head? Try pin curls. This trick has been used for decades and isn’t complicated at all. All it requires is mousse and several bobbi pins. Section the hair off into 10-20 (depending on thickness and desired tightness of the curls) even, sections. Wrap each section around your finger and slide it off, while retaining the coiled curls. Pin it down with a bobbi pin and continue until all sections have been pinned. Sleep with the pins in place and then remove them before school in the morning. Voila-- tight and bouncy curls that will last long after your homework has been done. Notice a lot of split ends while twirling your hair? It’s probably time for your regular trim at Inscape!

Headband Curls girl hair

Headband Curls

If you haven’t heard of headband curls, you’re in for a treat! This is one of the simplest overnight styles to pull off and it only takes a minute tops. Wash your hair as usual and let it air dry until it is around 80% dry. Then, add a little mouse as you brush through any tangles that may have formed. Next, grab your favorite thin fabric headband. Put it on your head so that the front goes slightly across your forehead (better known as hippie style). From there, take a small section of hair from the front and wrap it around the headband one time. Grab the remaining ends of that section and pick up another small section. Continue this process until you have made your way around your entire head and all of the length of your hair is fully wrapped. Leave it on while you sleep and you will be left with tight curls when you wake up for school.

Full Texture Waves woman hair style for school

Full Texture Waves

In the event that you want to add texture that will stay in place to your stick straight hair, opt for full texture waves. Create three equal sections of your hair and put each section in a small bun. Spritz with a gel spray or hairspray and head to bed for the night. When you take down the buns after waking, you will have extra volume and texture.

girl and woman hair plopping Florida

Hair Plopping

For those that were blessed with natural curls, you too can style your hair while you sleep. The biggest complaint we received from our curly haired here in our Davie FL hair salon is that they simply can’t stand the frizz. Hair plopping is the solution! Wash your hair and then saturate it with a moisturizing hair product. Place a t-shirt on a chair and then “plop” your hair onto the t-shirt. Tie it up around your head and leave it in place as you sleep. It will prevent frizz build up while you sleep and ensure that your curls are defined upon waking.

crimped hair texture for girls for school in Florida

Crimped Texture

Remember that adorable crimped look your hair would have when you removed your braided pigtails as a child? You can recreate the textured look without having to wear pigtails in public. Starting with slightly damp hair, part your hair into several different sections and braid them. Secure each braid with a small rubber band and leave it overnight. Keep in mind that braid size is everything with this style. If you want a full voluminous texture, make your braids small. If you want a larger crimped pattern with less volume, make the braids larger. The look can last for two school days with no touch ups needed. It also works well with a half-up, half-down style to change up the second day look and looks flawless on all hair coloring. In Florida, this is also a great way to embrace the humidity.

In need of hair coloring near you or a quick trim to make your favorite overnight style look flawless? Book your appointment at Inscape Beauty Salon online now or call us at (954) 212-9806.


Back to School: Humidity-Proof HairStyles for the First Week

First impressions are everything! For the first week of school, you’ll want to look your best. Here in Davie, Florida hair stylists know that humidity is still in full effect for the first weeks of school. If your hair proves to be one of the many types that are affected by humid weather, we recommend investing in a frizz-reducing serum and applying it before attempting any hair style. To further cut down on the dreaded humidity induced poof during the first week of school: try these humidity-proof hair styles.

Day One: All About the Braids

The first day of school is often intoxicatingly exciting. You prepare for it for weeks (or even months) in advance and the anticipation is real. You are greeted by friends and classmates that you haven’t seen in months and it seems as if everyone has changed something about their appearance. From new hair colors to haircuts, it’s a thrill to take it all in. Unfortunately, it is also quite hectic, especially if you are unfamiliar with where your classes are. The last thing you want to worry about on your first day is your hair. To ensure your hair stays in place and frizz-free, opt for a carefree braided look. The possibilities are endless, but we can’t get enough of the fishtail or French braids.

Day Two: Half-up, Half-Down with a Twist

Today, the excitement lingers and you’re probably a little more confident in locating all your classes. Naturally, you still want to look fabulous! Be a little experimental today and rock a half-up, half-down style. You can add braids or small twists on top to keep the hair out of your face and give the illusion that you spent hours on your hair. But it takes ten minutes tops. The down portion of your hair will be a little more subjected to frizz so bring along a comb and your favorite anti-frizz serum for a touch-up around lunch time.

Day Three: Low Slung Bun

You’re halfway through the first week and the reality of assignments and upcoming study sessions are setting in. Let yourself be lazy today and opt for a classic low-slung bun. If you’re looking for a refined look, keep the bun tight. If wild and free is more your style, pull out a few small pieces for a messier look. Secure it in place with a few hair pins and the style won’t require any touch-ups or maintenance throughout the day.

Day Four: Grown-Up Pigtails

Think you had to leave the pigtails behind with elementary school? Think again! Top celebrities around the globe are still rocking the look and it is as adorable as ever. The key to avoid looking too childish is to place the pigtails down low or up ultra-high. It also helps if you transform them into small buns or double Dutch braids. In either case, they won’t show any signs of frizz or humidity even on the hottest Davie Florida days.

Day Five: Top Knot and Go

By the end of the day, you will have officially completed your first week back at school. Prepare for an after-school celebration in advance by rocking a classic top knot. It will stay in place throughout the day and last long enough to look fabulous at a party or dinner out with friends.

If you didn’t prepare for heading back to school in advance and need a trim or want to try out that funky blue hue being sported by your lab partner, reserve a portion of your weekend for a trip to Inscape Beauty Salon. You can book your appointment online or text us at (954) 212-9806 today!


Low Maintenance Back to School Hair Colors

The end of summer is always bittersweet. The carefree, warm days slowly fade away and responsibility and cooler weather take their place. Despite this, it often marks new beginnings and an opportunity for a fresh start. This is especially true when it comes to starting a new year of school. Whether high school or college, let’s face it: your schedule is about to become hectic. Beach days will be but a mere memory as you accumulate homework and pull all-nighters to ace that big test. The last thing you will have time for is your hair, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t look fabulous as you head back to school. To start the new year off with flawless, hassle-free hair, consider our top picks for low maintenance back to school hair colors.

Keep in mind that sticking close to your natural color will likely require the least amount of maintenance throughout the school year. Whether a blonde, brunette or redhead, aim for a shade that is only two or three shades lighter or darker than your natural color for best results.

back to school brunette hair color

Balayage

Balayage is still on trend! This technique results in natural looking highlights that require very little upkeep. Since balayage isn’t a hair color, it can be pulled off using colors that are close to your natural shade to keep it low maintenance. Luckily, as your roots grow out, the balayage highlights will still look as flawless as the day they were done. If you have time for hair coloring in Davie, a quick touch up at Inscape Beauty Salon can revamp the grown-out hair without requiring any drastic or time-consuming measures.

blonde+shadow+root+back+to+school

Shadow Roots

Shadow roots are another fashionable hair trend that we have seen throughout the summer and we expect to see the style continue well into the fall months. Celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna and even Beyoncé have been seen with shadow roots and it looks effortless. Essentially, the style looks as if your roots are naturally growing out. They are darker than the lengths of the hair, however, unlike natural growth, there is no harsh line separating the two. Instead the darker hue is blended gradually into the color of the length to create a soft and natural look. It requires little maintenance and even more so if you opt to keep the darker hue close to your natural one.

Pop of Color Hair Color Fall

Add a Pop of Color

If you want to stand out at school, but don’t want to commit to the upkeep of a bold color, consider adding a small amount. A pop of color can be added anywhere! Whether you want your bangs a neon green or a small strip of hot pink on the side, hair coloring will be kept to a minimum to maintain the look.

Dirty Brunette Back to School hair style

Dirty Brunette

We’ve all heard of “dirty blonde” colors but this year it’s all about the dirty brunette. Like a dirty blonde, it is a hue that is mostly brown but incorporates natural looking pieces of blonde. It is not quite warm or cool in nature, so its neutral tone is a plus for all skin tones.

Take Inscape Beauty Salon’s 30-Day Better Hair Challenge

Summertime is notoriously hard on those luscious locks. From heat exposure and humidity to sea salt and chlorine, dry and lackluster hair is inevitable. Here at Inscape Beauty Salon, we firmly believe that healthy hair is beautiful hair. There is no better time to get started than now: join us on a journey to stronger, more vibrant hair by taking the 30-day better hair challenge:

Day 1: Get a trim at Inscape with your favorite stylist

Getting rid of split, dry or otherwise damaged ends will help you begin on the path to better hair. We recommend getting a trim every four to six weeks. If you haven’t had a trim in a few months, schedule an appointment for a haircut to get started.

Day 2: Start drinking more water

Water is crucial to the health of your hair, skin and your entire body as a whole. Aim to drink the recommended 8 glasses each day to see an improvement in your hair.

Day 3: Commit to shampooing once every three days

Far too many people shampoo their hair every day, yet the effects of excessive washing are damaging. From dry scalp to hair loss, too much shampoo can throw off the PH balance of your scalp. Most people only need to wash their hair a few times a week; aim for once every three days if you’re a frequent washer.

Day 4. Eat almonds

Almonds are fantastic for the hair. Rich in magnesium and fatty acids, almonds can decrease hair fall, increase growth and even aid in reducing dandruff. Allergic to nuts? Try increasing the amount of eggs or spinach in your diet for similar benefits.

Day 5: Google the harmful effects of sulfates, silicone and other chemicals in hair products

If you aren’t aware of the damaging effects of ingredients like sulfates and silicone, use this as a learning experience. You might be surprised to learn that your hair woes are the result of your hair products.

Day 6: Invest in sulfate free products

Now that you have learned about sulfates and silicones, shop around for more hair-friendly products. From shampoos and conditioners to hair gels, there are chemical free options available for all your needs.

curlers-curly-hair-female-112782.jpg

Day 7: Try something new

Have you been dying to try a new style but have been too afraid to take the plunge? Try it today and renew a love affair with your hair. In need of some inspiration? Schedule a consultation for hair color in Davie today to discuss low damage options.

Day 8: Find a hair, skin and nail supplement

Even those with a well-balanced diet can benefit from an added hair, skin and nail supplement. Do your research to find one that works for you.

Day 9: Let your hair air dry

Do you run straight for the blow-dryer after showering or washing your hair? Skip the blowdryer today and instead let it air dry.

Day 10: Buy a silk pillowcase

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase at night can reduce the amount of frizz created overnight while tossing and turning in bed. Shop around for a high-quality one and let it do the work while you sleep.

Day 11: Try a DIY hair mask

Discover your favorite DIY hair mask recipes on Pinterest and give one a try.

adult-beautiful-beauty-413727.jpg

Day 12: Wear a hat

The summer sun here in South Florida is known for fading color quickly. Protect your hue and wear a hat today.

Day 13: Invest in a new brush and comb set

Had the same brush for months or even years? Buy a whole new set today.

Day 14: Detangle your hair in the shower

Put that new comb to use and detangle your hair in the shower today.

apple-apple-juice-beverage-1536868.jpg

Day 15: Rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a great way to refresh your hair. Simply add 4 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to 8 ounces of water. You can pour the mixture directly onto the hair after shampooing or use a spray bottle. Let it sit in place for around five minutes and then rinse it thoroughly. You will be left with body, shine and ultra clean strands.

Day 16: Try an overnight style

Spend some time researching overnight hairstyles. Whether curly, straight or wavy, there is a style for everyone. This will give you (and your hair) a break as most only take a few minutes of primping in the morning to finish.

Day 17: Dry your hair with a t-shirt

Instead of reaching for a bath towel, try a t-shirt. This creates less friction and presents less chance of damage. A microfiber towel can be used for this if you prefer.

Day 18: Skip the heating tools

Straighteners and curling wands are one of the biggest causes of hair damage. Skip these today and embrace your hair's natural texture.

Day 19: Get a treatment at Inscape

Schedule an appointment for a hair treatment near Pembroke Pines, Plantation & Hollywood. We recommend the Agave keratin treatment for frizz control or a L’Oréal SerieExpert Powermix treatment at Inscape for dry, damaged or lackluster hair.

brown-hair-female-girl-1159334.jpg

Day 20: Fake it until you make it

Dreaming of long, shiny strands? Instead of getting traditional hair extensions in Broward County, use clip-in ones or schedule a consultation for less damaging ones like aqua hair extensions at Inscape Beauty Salon.

Day 21: Massage your scalp

Massaging your scalp certainly doesn’t feel like a challenge. While relaxing, massaging your scalp also aids in increasing blood flow and stimulating hair growth.

album-antique-arrangement-699782.jpg

Day 22: Look at old family photos

Have some fun today and look through your old family photos. Take note of how your hairstyles (and those of your family members) have changed over the years.

Day 23:  Recreate your favorite blast from the past style

Are you dreaming of those pigtails from elementary school after browsing through photos, or curious how you would look with your mom’s 70s hairdo? Recreate the look (just for fun).

Day 24: Treat yourself to a deep conditioning treatment

Deep conditioning your hair only takes a few minutes yet drastically improves dryness. Treat yourself to a new deep conditioner or simply leave your favorite conditioner in for a little longer than usual.

Day 25: Don’t forget body hair

Unwanted body hair? Take today to remove it. Whether facial hair, out of control eyebrows or legs; explore waxing services at Inscape Beauty Salon. The results last much longer than shaving or other DIY methods and waxing prevents painful razor burn or unwanted bumps.

Day 26: Detox your scalp

Dead skin, clogged pores and product build-up can weigh your hair down. Detox your scalp by mixing 1 tablespoon of baking soda and ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon powder with 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

Apply the mixture to your scalp and leave in place for 15 minutes. Rinse and then shampoo and condition as usual.

aroma-care-close-up-725998.jpg

Day 27:  Add agave or coconut oil to your hair regime

Agave and coconut oils are excellent for repairing damage and restoring moisture. Introduce your favorite into your daily hair routine.

Day 28: Give your hair a break

Growing tired of hair styles and hair care regimes? Take a break today and throw your hair up in a loose ponytail.

Day 29: Revitalize your color

Instead of changing your entire color, opt for a gentler option. Demi-permanent or semi-permanent hair color at Inscape Beauty Salon is a great way to enhance the shine and color without the damaging effects of ammonia or bleaching. Ask your favorite Davie hair stylist about colored glazes or shine treatments

Day 30: Get inspired

Now that you are well on your way to better hair, get inspired! Dedicate a few minutes today to looking at your favorite celebrity styles or colors.

Congratulations on healthier, more vibrant hair! Now that your hair is stronger than ever, consider scheduling an appointment at Inscape Beauty Salon. Whether you are dreaming of a new color, need advice on hair care or are ready for your next trim, we’re happy to help on your journey to healthier locks.

At Home Color Versus Salon Hair Color: Is There a Difference?

It’s no secret that in our society we have plenty of options when it comes to expressing ourselves through our appearances. One of the most common ways that we achieve this feat is by altering our hair color. You can find nearly any color you can dream of in both local pharmacies and top-rated Florida salons like Inscape Beauty Salon. Whether time constraints or a strict budget is the motive, it can be hard to resist the allure of a fast and cheap DIY hair color. But, is there truly a difference between at home color and salon hair color?

Quality of Hair Color

In short—the answer is yes. For starters, the hair color offered in at-home varieties is of a lesser quality than those you find in salons. This is because they contain harsher, more concentrated chemicals and often skip out on the protective ingredients used in a salon setting. Because of this, you are more likely to experience damage, breakage or hair loss at home than under the guidance of an experienced hair professional. This is both because of the quality of the dye and the lack of experience of the individual dying their own hair.

Experience and Know-How

Although using an at-home color seems fairly cut and dry, a salon professional does much more than apply dye to your hair. Before any hair coloring service begins, your stylist first conducts an initial evaluation. At this point, they are checking for many different signs of your hairs’ health, such as: elasticity, moisture, and dermal irritation. If your hair is not healthy enough to withstand hair color, your hair stylist will make you aware of this beforehand. This step alone drastically reduces the risk of hair loss and extensive damage. From there, they will discuss your desired results, consult a color wheel and mix a color according to your existing hue. All these factors play a large role in the final results of your hair color in Davie.

Lack of Personalization

When it comes to at-home colors, however, there is a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Dry and damaged hair is dyed using the same chemicals as healthy hair. A brunette and redhead can choose the same box dye and are led to believe that their results will be the same, but this is rarely ever the case. Despite the color guide, the results are never quite as expected. The color may be brassier than expected or a even a completely unexpected shade. This is especially true when making a drastic change at home, as many box dyes are not intended to lighten or darken the hair more than two or three shades from the existing one. To correct these hair color mistakes, it may take a salon expert several weeks and can be a costly venture.

The Dangers of At Home Hair Dye

Along with these undesirable results, it is easy to forget that at-home dye kits can also be dangerous when applied by inexperienced individuals. From allergic reactions to burns, stains and severe irritation, these chemicals are better off in a properly equipped salon environment where they are handled and applied carefully by professionals.

Repair Your Hair in An Instant with a L’Oréal Serie Expert PowerMix Treatment

From tangles to split ends and frizz to breakage, good hair days are hard to come by when your hair is dry and damaged. Unfortunately, in a world full of heated styling tools and harsh box dyes, most of us experience damage to some degree. While there are ways to reverse existing damage, these methods take time. If you are looking for an instant way to reverse years of damage, a L’Oréal PowerMix Treatment may be the solution you are looking for.

L'Oréal PowerMix treatment

What is a L’Oréal PowerMix Treatment?

A L’Oréal Serie Expert PowerMix Treatment, in South Florida and around the globe, is one of the highest quality hair repair options available on the market today. Unlike other options, PowerMix is not a pre-prepared mixture. Instead, it is tailor-made for everyone’s specific needs right in our hair salon. Before beginning, your Inscape stylist will ask a few questions to determine your biggest hair care concerns. For example, this may be breakage and color protection. This consultation helps your stylist determine which additives to include in your PowerMix Treatment. If you are unsure or receiving the treatment directly after a service, like coloring, your Inscape stylist is happy to make recommendations.

The highly concentrated hair masque is then activated, using Micellar technology, when the base and additive are combined. After mixing according to your hair’s needs, it is applied to the hair and left in place for up to 5 minutes. When the time is up, your hair is rinsed and transformed from lackluster to fabulous. Although you will have a jumpstart on healthy, damage-free hair, you should receive regular L’Oréal PowerMix Treatments in Davie and follow up with preventative care.

hair damage prevention

How to Prevent Future Damage?

After receiving a PowerMix Treatment, your hair will be rejuvenated and healthier than ever. To maintain these results, however, preventing future damage is key. To ensure that your hair remains in good condition, start by forgoing the DIY hair treatments. Whether box dyes or at-home perms, these products are notorious for damage. Instead, consult one of our professional hair stylists to ensure that these services are done correctly and with salon quality products. Likewise, Inscape Beauty Salon stylists will evaluate your hair to ensure that it is strong enough to withstand these services. We also recommend pairing a L’Oréal PowerMix treatment after services such as bleaching or highlighting to minimize dryness and damage.

Next, you should re-evaluate your daily hair care regime. Despite the widespread myths, hair does not need to be washed and conditioned daily. In fact, over washing can lead to dryness, excessive oil production and dandruff. Aim to wash your hair no more than three times a week. Also be sure to choose a gentle shampoo/conditioner that is intended for your hair type. Other measures that you can take to reduce damage includes using a thermal protector before using heated tools and using high quality combs or brushes. When these techniques are combined with a L’Oréal PowerMix treatment, you will quickly notice stronger and more vibrant hair.

What’s the Difference Between Permanent, Semi-Permanent and Demi-Permanent Hair Colors?

When it comes to hair color, there is an expansive variety. From natural blonde hues to neon green, Inscape Beauty Salon is well equipped to meet every expectation. There is much more to a hair color than what meets the eye, however. Aside from the actual shade or the brand, hair dyes are available in different levels of permeance, such as permanent or semi-permanent. This offers salon goers the freedom to decide whether to make a permanent change or to experiment with new looks without the commitment.

brunette blonde permanent color

Permanent

Permanent hair dye is designed for clients who are interested in long-lasting results. To achieve these results, ammonia and hydrogen peroxide work in unison to penetrate the hair cuticle. This allows color to be deposited. It can be used for both lightening and darkening the shade of your locks. Typically, a permanent hair dye lasts around six to eight weeks before it will need to be revamped due to fading. Aside from the length of the hair, the color will need to be reapplied to new growth at the roots every four weeks. This type of hair color works exceptionally well for covering grays and is the most common type of hair color requested in salons, although it requires the most maintenance and is the most damaging.

semi permanent brunette hair

Semi-Permanent

Semi-permanent hair dye, unlike permanent varieties, are not intended to last. They contain no ammonia or hydrogen peroxide and are not capable of lifting hair color. This means that they cannot lighten the hair and they cannot drastically darken it either. In many cases, semi-permanent haircolors are used to add shine to natural hair or to revive previously colored hair in-between touch-ups. The length of time the semi-permanent color lasts varies by brand and hue; however, most are designed to fade out after 6 to 12 shampoos.

demi permanent blonde hair color

Demi-Permanent

At first glance, one might assume that the term semi-permanent and demi-permanent could be used interchangeably. But, the two are quite different in terms of composition. The most notable difference is that demi-permanent colors contains small amounts of peroxide. The level of peroxide is drastically less than that of permanent hair dye and there is no ammonia, as with a semi-permanent color. The addition of peroxide means that demi-permanent colors can open the hair cuticle so color can be absorbed. The result is a richer hue that is gentler on the hair than a permanent one with results that last up to 24 shampoos.

Considering a demi-permanent hair color to refresh your blonde locks? Ask about our L’Oreal Dia Light Milkshake Collection! We are proud to offer this high-shine, demi-permanent hair color in delectable hues like Frosty Pearl, Honey and Vanilla Macaroon Milkshake. This ammonia-free formula is ideal for natural or color treated blondes who want to revitalize their color without the damage or maintenance of a permanent hair color.

Which Oils Are Best for Optimal Hair Health?

In recent years, people have discovered a newfound love and appreciation for natural hair care and beauty products. From organic beeswax lip balm to mineral based shampoo, there is no shortage of nature-based solutions. One of the most popular goods when it comes to hair care in our Davie salon continually proves to be the use of essential oils. This is not surprising as many of us suffer from dry or damaged hair, both of which the right oils can correct over time. With so many choices on the market; however, it can be difficult to determine which ones are best for optimal hair health. Luckily, we have compiled our top choices for the best hair oils to eliminate the guesswork for you:

Argan Oil Morocco for dry and frizz hair

Argan

Argan oil hails from Morocco. The kernels of the argan tree are compressed to create the oil, which boasts a high content of antioxidants, fatty acids and vitamin E. When used in the hair, argan oil is a powerful organic solution to common woes like dryness, damage and frizz. It can even combat an itchy scalp, while increasing the hair’s elasticity. Like most essential oils, it can be beneficial for all hair types though those with thin or fine locks should use small quantities to avoid a greasy or weighed down appearance.

jojoba oil for oily scalp hair loss

Jojoba

Jojoba oil (ho-ho-ba) comes from a shrub that is native to areas in Arizona, California and Northern Mexico. This plant is an emollient, which makes it ideal for soothing and unclogging follicles. The oil also contains vitamins and minerals that nourish the scalp. While these vitamins are helpful for all hair types, those who find the oil most effective tend to have problems like an oily scalp, dandruff or hair loss. Although many users do apply the oil directly to the scalp, those who fear greasy locks may find it better to mix a tablespoon of the oil into their regular conditioner instead.

coconut+oil+skin+moisturizing

Coconut

Everywhere you look you are likely to see coconut oil these days. This extremely versatile, fatty oil is a popular choice for cooking, skin moisturizing, oil pulling and yes- even hair. Because there are so many products containing coconut oil on the market, it is crucial to ensure that you choose one intended for use on the hair. A coconut oil intended for cooking, for instance, may be drastically different than one for the skin. When used for hair care in South Florida, we recommend a pure unrefined oil or a product with a high percentage of coconut oil. This will ensure that you reap the benefits of the coconut, like its power to moisturize, soften and increase growth.

agave+for+hair+smoothness+and+shine

Agave

Agave oil is derived from a Mexican blue agave plant and works incredibly well for all hair types. It’s moisturizing amino acids and lightweight nature make it a top choice for all hair types. Whether your hair is dry, frizzy or lackluster, agave oil aids in adding moisture, smoothness and shine. It can be used directly in its essential oil form, but like many oils, its effects are maximized when included (in a high concentration) in a product designed specifically for the hair. At Inscape Beauty Salon, we recommend the Agave Smoothing Trio line paired with an Agave Keratin treatment. This is an excellent pre-summer treatment as it also aids in fighting off the humidity that Davie, Pembroke Pines or Hollywood, FL are known for.

sweet almond aid hair growth

Sweet Almond

This oil sounds like a delicious dessert but proves to be one of the greatest natural treatments for the hair. Extracted from protein packed almonds, the oil harnesses many of the same benefits as when they are consumed. It is best known for its ability to aid in hair growth, due to its rich content of vitamins B1 and B6, but can also repair hair follicles, moisturize and strengthen the hair. To reap these rewards, its best to use sweet almond oil on a regular basis instead of intermittently.

Regardless of which oil-based product you choose to improve your hair health, be sure that you select a the high-grade and minimally processed one. Often, products may indicate that they contain essential oils but upon further inspection, the actual percentage of essential oils is low. This is because low-grade oils rely on harsh chemicals, additives and other fillers to cut costs. While essential oils can be used in conjunction with other solutions for hair treatments, we recommend visiting Inscape Beauty Salon to ensure the product is pure and safe for your hair.

From chunky to ultra-thin and blonde to blue, discover which highlights we expect to flood your Instagram feed for the summer of 2019.

highlight baby light style hair salon South Florida

Babylights

Babylights have been one of the most popular styles of highlights for several years and we don’t expect that to change. This technique involves using a brush to apply dye in very small sections of the hair. It can be created with either a partial or full set of highlights, with a partial set giving a more natural appearance. Babylights can be done using any color but most salon goers opt for a hue that is only a few shades lighter than their base color. This is because it mimics the look of natural highlights that are the result of sun exposure, which is especially believable in the summer months.

Chunky Highlights

If the mere mention of a chunky highlight gives you a flashback to the ‘90s, you aren’t alone. These thick, skunk-like highlights are not quite as common as babylights but with ‘90s fashion and trends making a comeback in a big way, they are gaining popularity again this summer. They are the go-to style for anyone who finds the babylights approach a little too safe for their tastes. With wide streaks, this look is intended to make a dramatic statement. For this reason, a brunette may opt for icy blond chunky highlights to make the colors pop.

Ribbon Highlights

Curls: love them or hate them, they often require a different approach than stick straight locks. For those with intense curls, traditional highlights can create an unnatural appearance. With ribbon highlights, the dye follows the curl pattern instead of straightening them. This creates a remarkably organic look and will certainly be popular this summer among those with curly strands.

Partial Pastel Highlights

Whimsical and unexpected, pops of pastel shades can quickly transform any lackluster locks. Most salon goers find a full set of pastel highlights to be a bit over the top, so we are seeing a lot of partial pastel styles. While the look can be pulled off with any base color, it appears to be a big hit with blondes. In most cases, the color is kept towards the ends or used to create a face framing effect. In either scenario, the final result is always stunning.

Honey Blonde Highlights

While we tend to see an influx in blonde hues during the summer months, the specific shades are endless. In years past, ash and icy blondes were all the rage. For the summer of 2019, the trend will shift to warmer tones. Specifically, a warm honey blonde color will be a go-to for both brunettes and blondes who are looking to add dimension with highlights in Davie.

Contour for a More Flattering Shape

You've seen the awe-inspiring results that professional makeup artists and even top video bloggers achieve through the power of contour. Whether you've mastered this cosmetic optical illusion yourself or cant quite pull it off, the magic works beyond makeup. It’s been incorporated into Parisian fashion and yes- even hair coloring in South Florida.

The key to pulling off any contour effect is to use a bright color to draw the eye towards certain areas and a darker one to divert attention from others. By creating shadows and depth with strategically placed color, your round face can be elongated, or your square face can be softened. The result is a seemingly more flattering face shape without the need for daily contouring makeup. Hair contouring and balayage styles work particularly well with L’Oréal Majirel Contrast color line for brunettes. As a bonus, no pre-lightening is required which means results are achieved in less time with less damage than other products.

Neutralize Unwanted Tones for Flawless Color

Choosing the correct concealer is a given when it comes to neutralizing redness, dark circles or even those dreaded age spots. For instance, a green concealer will hide redness and a pink one will combat dark circles. While a basic in cosmetics, it is one concept that is all too often neglected. The result of the wrong shade of makeup means every imperfection shows through your foundation and your whole look is a bit “off”. If the wrong shade of foundation is also chosen, the skin can look too dull or even orange.

The same goes for your hair color. Choosing the wrong one simply prevents you from looking your best. We always advise consulting one of our Inscape Beauty Salon color specialists to ensure you are choosing a complementary hue, but unlike cosmetics, hair color can change. Hair color in Davie, Florida is subjected plenty of sunshine and heat; both of which can alter your perfect hue over time. Add in other factors like chlorinated water, harsh shampoos and heated tools and brassiness or fading are a given. If your icy blonde has slowly shifted to a golden blonde or your chocolate brunette has gone copper, a color correcting neutralizer is needed. Majirel’s Cool Over line is a long-lasting neutralizer, preferred by Inscape Beauty Salon professionals, to keep brassiness at bay.
