Want voluminous cascading hair? By Kyle Locklin

Create Voluminous Cascading Hair – Aurelio Salon in New Jersey

by Kyle Locklin

Want voluminous cascading hair? Here is the glamourous secret: taped in extensions! Extensions will provide you with body and or length.

HOW IT WORKS!  Section hair into quadrants, leaving the front out, and starting in the nape area of the head. Use your index and pointer finger to determine the width of hair to leave out of the hairline. After that, use your tail comb to take thin sections to same size of the tape. You will have approximately 15-20 strands of hair within each sandwich. Since each extension is sandwiched together and adhered by a piece of tape it allows your installation time to last a lot longer. Work your way up the back and sides of the head until it appears natural. In most cases you will have to angle and layer the extensions for a more blended look. Proceed to style your hair as you would your own, just be cautious of applying heat to the adhesive part of your extension at the root!

Changing with the seasons! by Dulce and Taylor

Changing With the Seasons – Aurelio Salon and Spa in New Jersey

by Dulce and Taylor

As the seasons change so too does your hair and scalp- this means rethinking your daily and weekly beauty routine.  Rotating your shampoo can help to ensure the best results for your scalp and hairs health.  The products you use or may be looking for have their own unique formula to treat certain conditions.

Summer Shampoos

When it is warmer we submerge our hair in the salty ocean and chemically treated water, as well as increase the use of lighteners to achieve that “sun-kissed” summer look; we alter our normal pH.  Maintaining a healthy pH is more crucial than many believe.  When the pH is off your hair will be more susceptible to damage or hair loss while your scalp may be more dry and sensitive leaving the possibility of dandruff or eczema as a side effect.  Citric and tartaric acid both help to adjust the pH of your hair and scalp, bringing it closer to the 4.5-5.5 (the normal measurement of hair) state from the 7-9 either permanent color or bleach can leave you with or ocean water at 8.2.  Shampoos that contain these ingredients from the KMS California line are the HairRemedy Sensitive Scalp shampoo, SilkSheen, HairPlay, MoistRepair, CurlUp, HairStay Clarifying shampoo, and FreeShape.

The sun is one of the leading causes in haircolor fading.  Octinoxate and Peppermint are natural UV filters which help protect hair from the harsh sun’s rays and protect your color.  MoistRepair, CurlUp, ColorVitality, and HairPlay are some of the shampoos you would use as a summer sun defense, depending on the current state of your hair.

Chlorine is an enemy to light and blonde haircolor, during the summer a build-up from salt, minerals, even products can slightly alter any desired look.  Tetrasodium EDTA and Sage Extract help to remove build-up from those factors as well as balance the hair.  HairRemedy Sensitive Scalp Shampoo, HairStay Clarify Shampoo, HairPlay, CurlUp, and SilkSheen all contain those 2 key ingredients to help keep your hair feeling “squeaky clean”.

Winter Shampoos

The cold winter days don’t cause as much damage as it does dryness.  While in the summer you need a little more protection, in the winter you’ll need more moisture.  Glycerin and Wheat Flour both aid in replenishing and maintaining moisture levels; MoistRepair, CurlUp, and HairRemedy Sensitive Scalp Shampoo are your go-to and must-haves during that time.

Good Year Round

There are some scalp conditions that exist year round.  Dandruff and sensitive scalp could be caused from a sunburnt scalp, the dry cold air, or even genetics.  Rosemary and Zinc Pyrithone are two ingredients that help fight against an itchy and flakey scalp.  HairRemedy Sensitive and Dandruff shampoo can both be added into your weekly cleansing regimen regardless of the time of year to ensure your scalp is healthy and flake free.

Rooty Ombre by Kyle Locklin

Rooty Ombre Hair Style – Aurelio Salon and Spa in New Jersey

Kyle Locklin, a stylist at Aurelio Salon in Howell and Toms River NJ, had a client who came in and wanted a Rooty Ombre. She was a level 6 with level 7 and 8 highlights but her natural base level is a 5. Beside the rooty ombre, a level 8 & 9, look she wanted a minimal upkeep.

Kyle started by going in as if it were a regular retouch but dramatically fanning it down into her midshaft.
When completed, he took a wide tooth comb and brush through the hair to ensure everything will blend smoothly.
the next challenge is to weave out the hair you want lightened. Using a board, the back of your hand works as well, he painted lightener onto the hair using a V technique.

He then used his leftover root touch and feathered it into the lightener to avoid any harsh lines.
Once his client had finished processing, he shampooed his guest with goldwell color fade stop shampoo.
He then toned his client with 2 separate formulas. One on the midshaft and a second on the ends for a smooth gradient look!

Textured “Lob” by Alicia Kiwacz

Textured Lob or Long Hair Bob – Aurelio Salon and Spa in New Jersey

by Alicia Kiwacz

When you have a long bob (a.k.a “lob”) it can be difficult to style your hair with the perfect amount of volume and texture. If you have a one-length lob, meaning you have no layers, your curls tend to fall and curl only at the ends. While this may work for some, others can’t figure out how to create the perfect, textured “lob”.

Follow these style tips with the following style equations.

Start: To prep the hair after showering, use HairPlay Texture Shampoo and FreeShape Conditioner. This will put a little extra grit into your hair with the Texture Shampoo and also provide a coating of heat protection with FreeShape Conditioner

StyleFirst use the Body Build Detangler from AddVolume to damp hair. This will detangle your strands while providing light condition so your hair remains light and lifted. Following that use AddVolume Root and Body Lift at the roots for added volume and grit. A little FreeShape Hot Flex Spray along your mid-shaft to ends will give you added heat protection and slight hold to the hair so you can start creating the basic shape of your hair with a round brush. Finally, HairPlay Dry Wax will give you a matte finish with flexible hold. Style with a blow dryer and round brush.

FinishThis style equation is the most important part of your look.  The other style equations work as a base to prep your hair, but this is where the real styling begins. Spray hair with FreeShape 2+1 Styling and Finishing Spray. Use a 1” curling wand and wrap hair around certain pieces. You’re not looking to go for a perfectly polished look. You are going for texture. Once you curl your hair and get a lot of volume, spray HairPlay Playable Texture and lightly scrunch into hair to activate the product. Most of your texture will come from this product.  Once you reach your desired look, use HairStay Medium Hold Hairspray to keep your style for 24hrs. Through-out the day you can scrunch your hair to reactivate playable texture!

Q and A with Samantha!.

Q and A with Samantha Harris – Aurelio Salon and Spa in New Jersey

Samantha Harris is a Stylist at Aurelio Salon in Toms River NJ.

Q: What are the best shampoos to use maintain hair color; specifically blonde hair?

A: After color services use a shampoo designed to prevent color fade. Color safe shampoos and conditioners have ingredients that prevent color from fading and some even enhance color in between visits. Blonde hair needs special attention and usually has its own line of color protection with violet tones to help preserve the color. When choosing a shampoo for blonde hair, it’s important that they’re moisturizing or repairing as well, since lightened hair is more fragile. Goldwell Blonde and Highlights shampoo and conditioner are an excellent choice to keep your hair healthy and shiny as well as the perfect tone.

Q: Why does my blonde hair turn yellow/gold in between visits? Is the anything to prevent this?

A: Blonde hair can turn gold/ yellow after services for many reasons, but the good news is it can be avoided. While at the salon stylists often tone your hair using a depositing color to counteract underlying pigments in the hair. When your hair is lightened, orange and yellow tones are naturally exposed. A violet or blue based color will cancel unwanted tones to give you your desired results. Demi permanent colors only stay in the hair for up to six weeks. When the color fades brass can become noticeable. Hard water at home, chlorine, sun, and free radicals also contribute to yellow tones.

To keep you hair that perfect blonde, visit your stylist every four to six weeks for a toner or glaze. In between visits Goldwell Soft color is a temporary rinse that tones hair at home and can last up to eight shampoos. Wash hair with proper shampoo and conditioner such as Goldwell’s Blonde and Highlights line. The purple conditioner can act as a toner when left on hair for a longer time. Regular maintenance is needed for blonde hair, by using these tips your blonde will look beautiful between visits.

Q: What are the benefits to professional hair coloring opposed to a seven dollar box of hair dye?

A: Stylists are trained and certified to perform chemical services, with years of education and experience they have the expertise to not only customize your color but to determine the best look for you. Stylists are keeping you in mind during your service and want your hair to stay healthy. Box color may be cheap but so is the quality. Box color is designed to work on everyone therefore a high level peroxide solution is used. This not only damages the hair but can create hot roots and uneven color depending on your hair’s condition. Box color is often misused for touchups and is applied to the whole head causing further damage. The cost of box color may be less than a visit to your stylist, but the knowledge your stylist has is beneficial when taking into consideration your hair’s condition, texture, and the best way to achieve your desired result.
