Best Anti Frizz Hair Products

Antonio Diaz, a stylist for Alicia Keys, says of the Salon AKS Anti Frizz products “”These products hydrate hair, tame frizz and smooth curls. I love that they’re loaded with natural ingredients like coconut water and sunflower extract. Simply shampoo and condition while your hair is still wet, then detangle any curls by using your fingers — don’t reach for a comb or brush! They’ll only lead to breakage” Thanks for the ❤️

You should never have to sacrifice your hairstyle for the gym or studio! by Hadar Leibovitz

Do you have short layers or angles that may not fit into a ponytail?

Don’t fret! We’ve created a few layer friendly, versatile looks that survive even the sweatiest workouts.

  1. Switch it up!                                                                                                           Two strand rope twists emulate a braid but are much easier to achieve on yourself. They will save your blowout and hide shorter angles while you’re sweating it out in the gym. Best part? Take it out once the sweat has dried off your hair and you will have soft waves.
  2. Elevate the tried and true ponytail by doing a Mohawk braid down the middle. Braiding the hair in between the arches of your brows to the crown of your head hides those shorter pieces and adds some fun and personality to the pony.
  3. The most popular gym ‘do’? A messy bun! The secret ingredient here is to add a mask to the ends of the hair before your workout. As your scalp generates heat from perspiring, the hair cuticle opens up and really absorbs all those great conditioning properties. Avoid getting the mask on the roots so you can keep the messy texture and not look greasy!

So next time you have to ask yourself “Is this gym/studio appropriate?” keep an open mind along with these hairstyles in your back pocket.

Getting Shorty; Guidelines by Alain Pinon

Anne Hathaway is the perfect example of what we have to watch out for when changing one’s style. This short bob gives her the appearance of a very boxy and full face. It does not enhance her cheek bones or jaw line. Also, it squares off her already broad shoulders, throwing the proportion off balance.

Now, the shorter hair below exemplifies how the right proportions can accentuate the natural angles of her bone structure while achieving soft femininity. Cutting layers that go away from the face opens the sides and back and creates a harmonious balance with her neck and shoulders. This look gives her elegance and an undeniable presence.
