9 Things You Should Know About Vibrant Hair

Posted:

Since bright hair colors are all the rage this summer, we thought it was time to get real about them—they’re a lot of work. Since you’ve probably considered going purple, pink or another vibrant shade at least once, we’ve compiled a few things you should know first. Take a look below, and if you’re ready for the hair committment, we say go for it.
 
You may have to bleach your hair.
Unless your hair is naturally platinum blonde, chances are you will have to bleach it. In order for any bright colors to lift and stand out, your hair needs to be completely white to begin with—which could take 1-3 bleaches.
 
Have a professional bleach it for you.
You won’t regret this step, we promise.
 
Invest in quality hair care products.
A large part of going bold with your hair is maintaining that color. Investing in quality hair products specifically meant for color treated hair will help in making your color last.
 
 Lots of things can make your color fade. 
This is a very important one to note. Things that will make your color fade include how often you wash it, heat tools, which hair products you use and your exposure to the sun. Silver and pastel shades will fade the fastest and need to be touched up more often.
 
There are things you can do to avoid color fading.
Dry shampoo will become your best friend. Washing your hair in cold water will also slow down the color fading process.
 
Going bold is a big commitment.
If you couldn’t tell already... Your first service will also likely be a bit more expensive and could take anywhere from 2-5 hours.
 
Always protect hair when using heat tools.
This should be the case no matter what color your hair is, but it is extra important with extremely color treated hair.
 
You’ll be a regular at the salon.
 When those roots start growing in it is not always pretty. Be prepared for salon touchups on a regular basis.
 
Prepare for the attention.
Your new vibrant, bold hair color will bring attention to you whether you like it or not. But just don’t be bothered—rock it! 

What is Pastelage?

Posted:
  

Pastelage is the new balayage. Using a combination of pastel tones applied to the hair with the balayage technique, Pastelage is the latest hair trend sweeping the beauty industry.
 
Coined by L’Oreal Professionnel, the hair care brand makes Pastelage possible using its  new #colorfulhair semi-permanent in-salon colour palette. The #colorfulhair range features seven intermixable vibrant, intermixable shades. The genius behind L’Oreal’s Pastelage specifically is its versatility and low-committal factor— lasting between three and twelve shampoos, post service.
 
 
 
While L’Oreal Professionnel’s initiated the trend and the  semi-permanent treatment, that is not it for Pastelage. Stylist’s and salons have already adapted the technique and made it their own. Similar to balayage, you can paint the hair either a lot or a little depending on your desired outcome. More women, of all ages, are requesting bold hair color and Pastelage is their answer. Meet Pastelage—the trend of summer 2017.

How often do you REALLY need to get your hair cut?

Posted:

It’s a question we’ve all probably asked ourselves before—how often should I cut my hair cut? If you’re anything like me, you’ve put off your hair cut for as long as possible, just wishing for it to grow. Well, if that’s the case, you could be doing your hair a big disservice according to Post Hair Company stylist Jennifer Olivas. Olivas weighed in on the topic and below is what she had to say.  
 
1. “For shorter hair cuts, you should be getting it cut every four to six weeks. For long cuts, it’s a six to eight week period.”
 
2. “When getting your haircut, you should be doing it with your color service. This way it'll take out the damage that naturally occurs with the coloring process. Haircuts are just as important as the color.”
 
3. "It's a myth that cutting your hair will make it grow faster, but it is essential to get regular hair cuts when  growing out your length to keep your hair healthy and looking good."

7 Lazy Girl Hair Hacks

Posted:

We’ve all had those days. Those days where our hair just won’t cooperate, we’re running short on time or we’ve pre planned to sleep in— it happens. Enter in the lazy girl hair day. Looking for a simple, quick hair fix? We happen to know a few.

 
Hacks from Post Hair Stylist Marina Grigolini 
 
1. Curl the top half of your hair with a 1 ¼ inch curling iron. Leave the underside untouched—it’ll look more natural and it’s better for the hair. 
 
2. Sleep in two French braids and wake up with curly hair. Make sure to use Mousse though, it’ll hold the style better and your hair won’t get frizzy if you toss and turn at night
 
3. Get your haircut more often and do a deep conditioned more like every other visit. It will last four to six weeks depending on how often you wash your hair
 
A few other hacks to add
 
4. For quick curls, pull your hair up into a high pony. Divide hair into three sections and curl those strands. Undo the pony and hairspray your hair upside down. Flip up and tousle with your hands. 
 
5. For a longer, fuller ponytail—try doubling up. Split your hair into two sections, top and bottom, and ponytail them separately. The closer together the better. Run your hands through the hair and you’ll be left with one volumptuous pony.
 
6. Use a texturizing product on damp hair. Split your hair in half, rolling each section away from the face and then blast the twist with the blow dryer. You’ll be left with a natural, woke-up-like-this wave.
 
7. Great for second day hair, part and tease up your roots and pull all of your hair back into a low, messy bun. No need to worry about every hair being perfect. This look is effortless.
