Protecting Your Tresses

I’ve always relished an opportunity to get a new hairstyle. In fact, my hairstylist never knows what I’m going to ask for next. I always keep her in suspense. For the past few years, I’ve switched back and forth between two distinctly different styles. While I enjoy experimenting with my hair, the continuous processing I put it through is detrimental to my tresses. Therefore, I have to be careful to protect my hair. Every day, I apply a deep conditioner to my hair. I also dry my hair on a warm setting instead of a hot one. On this blog, you will learn how to maintain your hairstyle while protecting your tresses from damage.

What You Need To Know About The Top Hair Salon Services

Does your hair need an update? Whether you haven't had a cut in months or your locks have lost their luster, take a look at the top hair salon services.

Hair Cut

How often should you get a hair cut? This is one of the most obvious services salons offer. But this doesn't mean everyone comes in for a cut on a predictable or regular schedule. While there's no magic number of weeks or month marker to decide when you need a cut, consider:

  • Your hair growth speed. Some people have hair that barely grows, while other people are long in lush in what seems like weeks. Human hair grows at an average rate of 0.2 to 0.7 inches per month, according to Medical News Today.
  • Your hairstyle. Certain types of styles lose their shape after a few weeks of growth. If your style doesn't look the same, is hard to manage, or looks messy, it's probably time for a cut.
  • Your preference. Do you prefer a cropped cut with neatly trimmed ends? A month of growth may not meet your personal preferences. Create a cut schedule that makes you feel good about your hair.

Along with a schedule, you also need to decide on the style of cut. Services in most salons range from quick bang trims to more complex layered or intricate cuts. Before you choose a salon, make sure they offer the services you need—especially if it's a specialty cut. These could include neck trims, children's cuts, or precision dry cutting.

Hair Color

Like hair cuts, you also need to know whether the salon can handle your color needs before you book an appointment. Popular salon color options often include:

  • Balayage. The colorist hand-paints highlights into your hair to give your locks a natural, sun-kissed look. The end result is a subtle style that may remind you of the way your hair looked as a child after a few days in the summer sun.
  • Ombre. This technique gives a gradual color fade from the roots to the tips. The roots will remain the darkest, with the color getting lighter as it moves to the ends of your hair.
  • Highlights. Instead of all-over color, the colorist will dye sections of your hair a lighter hue.
  • Hair gloss. This semi-permanent option adds subtle color and plenty of shine.

If you want to completely change the color of your hair or cover a full head of greys, an all-over process can give you a new look. Discuss your color goals with the stylist/colorist before you select a service. The salon professional will explain the different processes and help you make the best decision for your hair.
