L. A. Styling
We'd love to hear from you
- How do I get my hair back into good condition?
Hair should be cut every 5-8 weeks, depending on rate of hair growth. Good hair does not end in the salon, a good home hair regime is key to maintaining healthy hair too. Products that contain Argan Oil are great for the hair, adding nourishment and reducing frizz. If you use a lot of heated tools, it is essential to use styling products that have heat protection that is up to 230⁰ and UV barrier. Conditioning masks are highly recommended, adding vitamins and minerals to the hair and in some products re-bonding the hair internally.
- How often should I wash my hair?
Hair should be washed every 2-3 days.
- How do I prevent colour fade?
My top tip is to always use a surface conditioner every time you wash your hair and a deep conditioning masque once a week. This closes the hair cuticles, reducing colour fade. As we all know heated styling equipment can damage the hair with constant use. using a heat defence spray will limit this dramatically not damaging the internal/external structure of the hair, holding those colour molecules in place!
- How often do I need my regrowth colour done?
Regrowth application of colour should be carried out every 6-8 weeks, depending on hair growth.
- How often do I need foils done?
Ideally this service should be carried out every 10-12 weeks; depending on hair growth. I do recommend to clients alternating their ‘full head’ foils with ‘½ head’ foils each time. This prevents colour build up and maintaining good healthy hair.
- Do I need to wash my hair prior to a bridal trial?
Yes. You need to wash and condition your hair the night before or morning of service. I do recommend a Sulphate Free shampoo and conditioner to be used. I also recommend hair to be blow-dried smooth from root to tip with a boar bristled brush or paddle brush for smoothness (no straighteners).
- Should I bring images with me on hair/makeup trial?
It is always a good idea to bring images along with you on your trial. This gives your stylist a good idea of what the client likes/dislikes. I also recommend images of your own application of makeup as this shows how light/heavy your natural makeup look is.
- Why does my hair always drop when styled?
Hairsprays and certain shine sprays are good for reducing the amount of humidity absorbed into the hair, reducing hair from collapse!
- When do I need to book a hair/makeup trial?
Usually I recommend 6- 8 weeks beforehand. This gives you adequate time for any alterations that may need to be made beforehand.
