Fall 2017 Hair Trends by Hadar Liebovitz

With the change of season, comes transforming colors , weather and wardrobe!
Fall , means collars and sweaters, and no more running out with wet hair! The best ways to step into the fall is to take advantage of the gorgeous weather (no humidity!) and try something new.The Clean Line – the blunt collar bone length haircut has been around for a few years now and isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Its a flattering length on everyone. For 2017 try changing up the look with some shorter face framing angles. These shorter pieces will add movement and texture as well as accentuate your cheekbones and eyes.The Short – If someone tells you short hair is easier , that’s not completely true, you will need to get your haircut reshaped more frequently than your long locks but your morning hair routine time will be cut in half, if not more. It’s a great way to change up your look and routine while taking advantage of no humidity!

Bangs – if you are ever in the mood to cut bangs and you ask your stylist in the summer they will usually tell you to wait until fall to try it out (sweaty bangs stuck to your forehead are never the best look). Come fall, bangs are a great way to change it up. This season, a bold piecey bang with long textured hair is definitely the way to go. Afraid because you have crazy cowlick? Brazilian blowout will be your best friend! It’s a quick fix to Brazilian just the bang – it redirects the root of your hair, giving you the ability to wake up in the morning and run out the door without a worry. This statement look  is more versatile than you think!

Adding Depth – A lot of times throughout the summer we let our color go, opting for those natural highlights the sun gives us. What is not great is the dryness we get from the salt water and chlorine, not to mention the green (blonds) or brassy (brunetttes) undertone that our hair can take on by the end of the summer. Going darker will bring back that healthy shine and add a glow to what’s left of your Labor Day tan!

Hair Conditioning – After the summer we all need to replenish our hair and scalp! Stop in to the salon 1/2 hour earlier than your scheduled appointment to hydrate your scalp with the Phyto Pollene treatment and then sit with an intense mask under the heat to hydrate your ends.

Routine –  apply a few pumps of the AKS serum as your daily dose of vitamin E ,keratin  and argon oil! It helps keep static away as well!

Blow Drying/Styling – Try this ‘formula’: Always use the nozzle on your hairdryer – it truly focuses the direction of the hair cuticle, so you do not go against it and create frizz. With your hands, first lift the root. Then the mid hair shaft of hair. Now, your hair should be 80% dry. Finish with a boar bristle brush to smooth and shape the hair (Yes! Boar bristle not metal!) You’ll achieve long lasting, shiny hair in 1/2 the time.

The Look – Straighter styles are in for fall – yet not flat and flat ironed! Curing irons are still a great tool for second day hair! A large barrel curling iron can give a perfect amount of soft wave (not beach waves) for fall
When in doubt, ask your favorite AKS stylist for their opinion on the haircare options that would benefit you most.

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 ❤️

I saw this haircut ____…… how do I ask for it?

First, is the haircut your requesting right for you? Does the person in the photo have similar face shape and hair texture as you? Find a celebrity whose style you like that has similar face shape to yours and emulate their look.

The process to achieving a great hairstyle starts with a properly proportioned haircut. In order for hair strands to fall into place perfectly, they must be cut perfectly. Hair should be cut according to the way it grows, that way strands can interlock with each other and allow for a graceful growing out of the cut.  This cutting method also allows for ease of style. If hair is cut the way it grows, it does not HAVE to be blow-dried to look good.  Next, hair must be cut in a proportion most flattering to your face shape. You want angles and layers that highlight your best features and diminish your least favorite.

For a great cut and personalized product recommendations come see a professional at Salon AKS.

How can I make my hair grow faster?

The best way to increase the rate of hair growth is to eat a healthy, balanced diet. In addition, a hair and nail vitamin would increase the rate of growth along with ensuring  stronger, shinier hair. Take a daily hair and nail vitamin like Phytophanere.  In the meantime it is important to trim the tips of your hair regularly to keep a shape in your hair as it grows out. You will want to treat your hair regularly as well to deter the growth of split ends. Use masks like Phytojoba 1x a week. Treat your scalp with Phytocyane Densifying Treatment to help accelerate hair growth.

Come to Salon AKS anytime for a complimentary consultation and personalized product recommendations.

My hair has gone extremely thin and falls out a lot. I used to have thick hair. What do I do?

Your hormones change many times in your life and will have a direct effect on hair density and texture. Your general state of health, diet intake, age and stress are all factors in the health and density of your hair. Yet another factor could be an irregularity of your thyroid levels.

To improve your hair, start with a daily hair and nail vitamin like Phytophanere to encourage hair growth and make it strong from the root. Use pH balanced hair products and keep your scalp stimulated by massaging your scalp daily. Regular use of Phytocyane shampoo will also help to regenerate growth. Treat your scalp with Phytocyane Densifying Treatment 1x a week.
