Why Everyone should be using Olaplex

Why Everyone should be using Olaplex


We love articles like this!!!   

In an ideal world you could color your hair without any breakage or damage. In a perfect world coloring your hair would also work as a treatment to repair damaged strands and link the bonds back together again - if only!

Well the unbelievable has happened and its no fad product.  Scientists have created Olaplex; a truly revolutionary product that transforms the texture of hair and prevents breakage while repairing damage as well.  Truly an amazing product and that is why we will always carry it.

The Modern Male

The Modern Male

Men's grooming has become one of the latest trends and in my opinion it's about time :) Styles dating back from the 50's-80's seem to be sticking around this year. Just how eras change, so do techniques and tools. As much as I respect these old school styles, today's barbers have added a modern twist. What was a simple brush back then, has now been transformed to more of a tapered look around the neck and ears. Today's barbers/stylists have added more detail to these old school hair styles by adding a shaved part or skin fade to the pompador look.  A lot of people underestimate the power of a clipper, and I feel that this trend is helping change that mindset.  It takes a lot time, skill, and patience to execute these specific styles.  As men's grooming is evolving, so are barbers and stylists.  With the help of technology and social  media, we are able to admire other's great work and learn from it.  It pushes us to educate ourselves into perfecting our craft.

Becca's Top 10 Must Haves!

Becca's Top 10 Must Haves!

As hair dressers it is our duty to introduce and educate our clients to products that will enhance and work on their hair type.  I have picked 10 of my favorite products to review with you all and hopefully this helps  you with your next product purchase.  The products are not in any specific order and are available for purchase at Hair Loft Salon.

Bumble & Bumble All Style Blow Dry $30

This is for the woman who is that one product shopper.  It is for all hair types and requires one step to apply (apply on damp hair evenly).  This product also helps fights frizz and prevents heat damage.

Kerastase Elixir Ultime $42

If your the woman who loves the smell of fragrance and desires that silky smooth look Elixir Ultime is your best bet.  With its enriched white flower oil it will have you tousling your hair all day.  It is for all hair types and is applied evenly on damp hair.

Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder $36

BB's Hair powder is what I like to call LIFE SAVER!  We all have had those moments where due to time and life our color appointments have had  to be postponed.  The hair powder covers gray and new growth instantly with a voluminous matte finish.  It is available in four shades : Soft Black, Tint of Brown, Blondish, and White.  It works best when sprayed about 10 inches away from the target area.  Use on dry hair only.

Kerastase Homme Capital Force $33

So I'm sure we all have noticed that men are definitely trending these days with their stylish haircuts and beards.  My go to product for men's grooming is Capital Force.  It works with all hair types and textures and allows me to style with flexibility and hold.  Its an easy paste to apply and has a great cologne smell.

Kerastase K Powder Bluff $37

What woman doesn't own dry shampoo these days?  There are so many out in the market but I'd have to say Powder Bluff is #1 in my book.  What I love most about this product is that it doesn't leave a lot of build up or residue.  Perfect for those one or two days that you don't wash your hair.  It works best when sprayed about 10 inches away from the hair.

Kerastase Discipline Fluidissime $42

First off let me start by saying "OBSESSED."  For the woman with unruly hair let me introduce you to your knight in shining armor.  Fluidissime is a leave in spray that helps protect your hair from heat and helps tame frizz.  If your looking for movement, smoothness, and shine this is it.  Spray on to damp hair and comb through evenly.

Kerastase Ciment Thermique $43

For my lavish blondes Ciment Thermique will be and should be your best friend.  This leave in helps reconstruct brittle damaged hair.  You can see the shiny smooth results instantly after a great blow out.  I not only use this on my blondes, but also on anyone who sits in my chair with fragile hair, split ends, very dry hair or  little to no elasticity.  This product is applied onto damp hair evenly.

Kerastase Mousse Boufante $37

For my ladies struggling to have volume and body in their hair FEAR NO LONGER!   I find that when i use this on my fine haired clients it helps give them a fuller yet movable style.  This mousse is flexible and thickens every hair strand with out adding any extra weight.  Apply on damp hair evenly.

K Boucles d'art $37

I must say the whole beach wave look seems to be sticking around for a while.  I tend to use Boucles d'art on my clients to achieve that natural beachy look.  This light weight foam helps control and define any curl or wave pattern along with adding softness and shine.  The key words to look for when buying products for natural curly/wavy hair is ANTI FRIZZ & HUMIDITY PROTECTION!  Boucles d'art is applied on damp air you can scrunch your hair, air dry it, or diffuse it , either way it will still give you that beachy desired look.

K Laque Couture $37

One can never have too much hair spray.  K Laque Couture should be sitting on every vanity.  It gives you hold along with felixibility.  I love using this spray on all my bridal hair and formal event styles it is a great working spray.
