Why twisted?

Why do I love twisted styles? They are quick, easy, feminine, they don’t require any prep work, products, or heat tools, they work fantastically on most hair textures including curls, great with layered cuts, look good messy, they are a great fix for those days when you don’t have time to shampoo and you are feelin kinda greasy, and most of all…………………

when I take them out, my hair still looks great.

Curls transformed

This haircut made me feel lighter, and it’s not even my hair.

Amanda came to me for the first time with long, thick curly/mix texture coarse-ish hair. I cut it into collarbone sweeping layers with my scissor cutting technique, removed an enormous amount of it with my bulk removal technique, and then added face framing layers for a cut that will give her months and months of good shape and style.

Then, I schooled her a bit on brushing more, shampooing less, and encouraged her to switch from mousse to coconut oil.

She left looking fabulous and fresh, and I slept better that night. Thanks Amanda!

Hair rant of the day

Why did hair in the 50’s always look so shiny, healthy, and pretty? This was before the hair product industry was as big and influential as it is today.

That is not to say that hair products themselves haven’t come a long way, because they have for sure. I just like how in the old days, women would wash, set, laquer, and wear their style for many days at a time, then brush it out and start over. So simple, so pretty.

Besides the fact that many women visited the beauty parlor weekly, In the 1950’s, women did not shampoo their hair daily. But what they did do was brush their hair thoroughly at least once a week with Mason Pearson type brush.

Here is my rant of the day: If we all had a good brush that we used several times a week to thoroughly brush our hair( I love the paddle brush) and shampooed our hair less often, we would collectively have more shiny, healthy, beautiful hair.
