Health & Style Institute Beauty Bites



Many have a signature hairstyle, like Anna Wintour and her signature bob. She’s lightened the color over the years (brighter and softer on the face as she’s aged) but the cut has been virtually the same for over 20 years. You can date her by her outfits but never by her hair.

Then some are totally opposite and wouldn’t dream of wearing their hair the same way two days straight, much less 20 years.

No matter where you fall on the spectrum, a new year is a perfect time to change up your look if you’re so inclined.

If you’ve ever made a hairstyle change you’ve regretted, consider these low-risk options.  They’ll help you make subtle changes with a big impact, while avoiding a makeover disaster.

With our New Year’s special, “Our Solutions to Your Resolutions.”, you can save money on making a change:    Get a Free Haircut and Blowdry/Style with Color Service. Good January 1st through January 31st, 2015. 


Get Highlights Or Lowlights

If you’ve always dreamed of going lighter, but the thought of covering your head in peroxide gives you night terrors, then subtle highlights may be for you.  Your hairstylist can use a sheer toner over highlighted hair to subtly enhance the color, richen it and make it more three dimensional. If you’re already blonde but have always dreamed of going to the dark side, add some lowlights!


Rock A Fringe

Bangs are totally in, but you might not be ready to commit to their maintenance and hairstyle limitations. Start with a longer side-swept bang to adjust to a fringed look. Go a bit shorter each trim, to your comfort level and a great look for you.  And don’t fret, it’s just hair, it will grow back.

Change Your Part

This tip may sound ridiculously obvious, but think about it: when was the last time you changed the way you part your hair? Deep side parts are hot, and switching your part can reveal new angles on your face.


Guys, You Too

Take a look in the mirror. Have you been working that same haircut since you were in high school? Many guys do have a tendency to get stuck in a rut, being comfortable with the same look and often stick to the old saying, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Here’s the deal. If you’ve had the same haircut for a decade, it is “broke,” so to speak, and it’s time to change your hairstyle. Ever wonder why women change their hairstyles so often? It’s simple. They know that changing up the ‘do is a fairly easy and inexpensive way to change up their look.

So, why bother? Well, the haircut you currently have may not be flattering your facial features for one thing. Sure, it may have worked a decade ago, but your face changes over time. Especially if you are maturing, an updated haircut can help you look younger into middle age (and beyond). Second, a new haircut is a great way to get noticed and keep you current.

Change is a good thing!  Wishing you a fabulous 2015!!!

While masks aren’t just for dry, damaged hair — every head can benefit from a moisture surge once a week, you can especially benefit from them during winter. And even more so if you are guilty of committing girl-on-hair crime, whether it’s over coloring, heat styling, or overzealous detangling.

From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season. In fact, even if you live in a moderate climate, you’re still susceptible to hair-raising changes as the seasons change. The environment can have some of the most damaging effects on hair in both summer and winter, but in winter it’s often worse because people often don’t take as many precautions to protect their hair.

Sun exposure can be as intense on a ski slope as it is on a beach. Combine with winter elements, i.e. wind, snow, rain, and icy cold — which makes hair brittle and dry – they can all come together to create some pretty bad winter hair days.

And even if you plan to spend all your time in the ski lodge with some hot cocoa, rather than on the slopes, winter is still your hair’s enemy. Experts say dry indoor heating can be something akin to spending an entire afternoon under a hair dryer!

The good news: No matter what’s causing your winter hair woes, you can take both protective and replenishing steps. At the top of the list for most stylists: regular use of a thick, rich, moisturizing and conditioning mask with a few key ingredients. It will repair, rehydrate, and rebuild even the most desiccated hair. It rinses out to leave strands glossy, frizz-free, and strong enough to withstand the winter elements… or another round with the curling iron.

How it Works
To get the most out of your mask, look for keratin, amino acids, or essential fatty acids. Keratin masks deliver keratin deep into the hair shaft, strengthening from within while simultaneously sealing the cuticle layer.

It’s a myth that Keratin dries out your hair. Keratin is a naturally occurring protein that is extremely resistant to breakage and protects hair from sun damage, chlorine, heat styling appliances and chemical processes like color treatments and straightening systems. Keratin masks have an abundant amount of keratin to make your hair visibly stronger, shinier and healthier with each use. It is not possible to overuse keratin.
