How to…CURL

1) Divide your hair into two sections, top and bottom, using eye level as a guide. Clip top section up.

2) Starting on one side (bottom), hold your first section of hair  straight out at 90 degrees from your head.  Your first section should start at your hairline and go until just behind your ear.

3) Take your curling iron with the barrel (round part) facing towards the back of your head, clamp it onto your hair and curl your first section.  Once you are completed your first curl, don’t touch it, leave it as a tight ringlet, and remember to do the same for the other curls, as this is what will keep your curls lasting all day.

4) Continue with section 2 and 3 on the same side and curling in the same direction, then repeat on the opposite side, starting again from your hairline and work back, remembering to keep the barrel towards the back of your head, so you are wrapping the hair away from your face.

5) Drop out your top section and repeat steps 2,3 and 4, the only change will be instead of holding your hair out at 90 degrees as you did on the bottom section, you will now be holding it out on a 45 degree angle which will create more volume on top.

6) Once completed curling all of your hair, flip your head upside down, put your hands in your hair, massage your scalp  and slightly shake out the curls.  Flip up and apply Milk_Shake’s Open Air Hairspray, to ensure it lasts, and remember that although it seems volumeous and a bit pouffy it will fall within the first 10-20 minutes.  You may need to make a few slight adjustments on curls by wrapping the hair around your finger if you have any pieces that are sticking out or aren’t falling into place.

 

In just 6 short steps, you are left with a new look, that lasts.

Hair Blvd. Dry Hair Tip

Tip for eliminating dry hair

Dry hair… Try this!

For people who feel they NEED to wash their hair every day, but find that their hair is very dry:
Instead of using shampoo every time you shower, try using shampoo + conditioner one day, then the next day use ONLY conditioner! This will give your hair a fresh feel, without removing the natural oils! Try doing even two days of only conditioning, and one day of shampoo – you will notice a big difference! For even better results use color maintainer shampoo and conditioner, it’s very light and very moisturizing 🙂
Fight Fading Colour!

Fight the fade with Integrity 41!

Are you finding that your hair color is fading soon after having it done? One main reason could be the shampoo you are using! Certain shampoos are too harsh for colored hair, because they have sulphates in them, which creates a nice lather but strips you hair and can leave your color looking flat and dull. Our Milk_Shake Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioning Mask is 98% organic, with 2% silicones to give it great slip and shine and a shelf life. It smells great and will protect your color with integrity 41!

struggling with your blowdry

It doesn’t have to be a struggle!

Try taking hair clips, and sectioning off your hair into 6 small sections. Start blowdrying the bottom section first then work your way to the top and sides. For a stubborn fringe, dry your bangs first! This will be much easier than trying to dry your hair all at once. Use a shine and protecting serum such as Milk_Shake’s Argan Oil before starting your blowdry!
