Save Your Style With The Hat Trick

The glamorous way to go from hat hair to party hair…

hat2

1. Give your hair a good foundation and start with a voluminous blow dry. Pull hair up into a loose top knot, and secure with a small butterfly clip. We recommend a clamp clip to prevent any lines of demarcation in the hair.

2. Pull on a loose fitting hat to allow space for your top knot. Choosing a softer fabric such as cashmere, silk, or angora also helps to keep things smooth and frizz-free. Butterfly founder and master stylist Kattia Solano does not suggest wool because “it so rough and conflicts with the texture of curly and/or natural hair.”

3. Pull out a few random face-framing pieces at the front to add a touch of cool to your on-the-go street style.

4. When you’re indoors, remove the hat and clip, gently shake your hair out and tease at the root with your hands to create volume. For anyone that regularly experiences static, an easy fix is to rub the inside of your hat with a light oil before putting it on.

It’s also beneficial to carry a purse-sized hairspray in your bag for extra hold or touch-ups, especially if you’re planning to make more than one stop or have a long journey to your final destination.

Sexy Spring Hair: The Longer Lob

The inspiration for this versatile shoulder-length hairstyle idea is Kim Kardashian’s new lob. Since most of us are a little scared of going too short in one shot, master stylist Nicole Descoteaux compromised on leaving some length. “I cut the back shorter than the front, which is the classic idea of a lob and what separates it from being a regular bob look…”

For more of a statement, Nicole decided to keep the bangs a little longer, too. “I’m sort of into the grown out little bang look that’s on trend now,” she says. Styling was all about working with the interior layers of the mid-length cut using the hair’s natural texture. Super simple! To top off the fresh feeling of sexy hair, makeup master Francesca Roman combined a mix of sultry and nude to create a gorgeous glow with softly glossed lips.

New Chronologiste – An Exceptional Hair Treatment Range

Words from Taylor Brock, stylist and treatment specialist:
With new additions to Chronologiste’s in-salon caviar pearl ritual and the introduction of an at-home regimen, “the finest haircare treatment ever created by Kérastase” has just gone up another level…

chro

Chronologiste is considered to be the ultimate deep-conditioning treatment for all hair types because it contains the most active ingredients ever offered by Kérastase. The new and improved version now offers a renewing pre-shampoo hair treatment that targets the scalp to receive specialized stabilization and repair. A healthy scalp allows hair follicles to produce easier, therefore resulting in faster hair growth. But the science doesn’t stop there – the product also works as a super hair primer, opening up your hair to grab as much of the treatment as possible to enable top notch revitalization. Also new to the line is the nutrient-packed shampoo and conditioner, directly inspired by the transformative treatment we’ve come to know and love. And don’t forget the nourishing Chronologiste oil fragrance, your last step styler for adding shine and softness. Regardless of the vitamins, moisture, strength and antioxidant properties found in this complete treatment system – the scent alone is enough to get you hooked. It will leave you asking, “Why can’t everything smell like this?” The bottom line is, when hair gets compromised on any level, there’s nothing better at reviving it than Chronologiste. The results were amazing before but the new additions will make you a groupie!

Check it out, Chronologiste speaks for itself…
