Heading for a Weekend at the Beach? – Here is Your Packing List!

Heading for a Weekend at the Beach? – Here is Your Packing List from the Team at Aurelio Salon! By Daisy Rosania

If you are a girl, like me and you are about taking off for a quick weekend at the beach, you don’t want to end up finally missing out on that one important item when packing. It drives me nuts when I do. I don’t know about you.

When packing for a quick getaway, you don’t really need that much. What you need are basically the “can’t-do-without-essentials” Here is a detailed beach packing tips and list that contains all the necessary essentials to help you pack very quickly. ( Images Alicia Kiwacz)

11Clothing: A pair of pajamas, A pair of nice sandals, A beach cover-up, 2 bathing suits (to make sure you’ll have a dry one all the time), 2 tops for day, 2 tops for night, A pair of shorts, A skirt/slack, A pair of jeans, A cardigan (for those chilly sea breezes), Adequate undergarments to get you through the weekend.

Beach Bag Essentials: A beach bag with a enough space, that favorite sunglass of yours (you should have one), A beach hat (I like them with flowers), 1 book and some paperbacks (If you are the reading type, like me), Camera (including your chargers and extra batteries), Beach Towel, Some snacks and water. Make sure you are drinking plenty of water so you do not get dehydrated!

Toiletries: Sleeping Kit (alarm clock, eye mask etc.), Toothbrush, Toothpaste, Razor, Shampoo (I like the Moist Repair shampoo and conditioner a hydrating shampoo, ideal for dry or damaged hair for laying out in the sun from KMS CaliforniaJ), Extra hair barrettes and ties, Deodorant, Medications (birth control, Aspirin etc.).

Haircare: If this is your first visit to the beach the change in climate will surprise you! You are going to need a10styling product, hair spray, I use all KMS products. I like Playable Texture for my styling product it builds texture with additional applications. Lets you re-work a style any time you like. Leaves hair feeling natural, not sticky. All you do is spray Spray into dry hair for light, airy texture and to accentuate layers.  For a Hairspray I recommend 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray  it’s a straightening and curling spray for dry hair.  Just spray on dry hair before using hot tools. For best results, spray section by section. Spray again as a final step to hold the style. I will use their Anti-humidity seal it’s a 24-hour humidity-blocking formula. Shields hair from frizz. Provides a shiny, weightless finish. Provides heat protection. Perfect for the Beach. You’re going to need humidity resistant haircare for your hair. Believe me; you don’t want to leave this one out.

Makeup:With your yellowish brown look, you don’t need much make-up to really make yourself noticed. Keep it natural. Make sure you have a cleanser, moisturizer, and solar defense booster (contains SPF 50).  For coverage your favorite tint and concealer and bronzer. Read our Beach Reach Ready Makeup Blog for more info based on skin type and some great tips!. Go with a comparable range of natural color make-up items like; blush, mascara, eye shadow and lip gloss.

beachy waves aurelio salonIf you want beachy wave type hair you might want to follow this style equation from the team at Aurelio Salon!  Shampoo, conditioner is optional, then comb out. Spray with KMS Sea Salt spray followed with 2-in-1 styling + finishing spray. Use fingers to blow hair dry up to 80% or let dry in the sun, Spray hair again with sea salt spray, Continue to dry with fingers until 100% dry.  Take 2-3 inch sections and wand the hair. Leave 1-2 inches of the ends kicked out for a natural beach wave.  Run fingers through and spray with KMS 2 in 1 hair spray for a light hold.

Now, you have it! A custom check-list made for you for that quick beach-weekend get-away. All you need do now is, whenever you are ready for that weekend on the beach, just grab your pen and start ticking them off. Don’t leave anything out!

Depending on the length of your hair you may have to wake up one to two hours early just to get your desired look. What if someone told you by using certian products you would only have to wash your hair once every 5 days! Try these 5 different Updo Styles.

Aurelio Salon 5 day hairstyles Here are the products to use to get through your 5 Styles:

Day 1: KMS HairPlay Makeover Spray
Makeover Spray absorbs oil to refresh limp hair and add’s texture for your second day hair. It’s a great way to touch up your hair in-between shampoos! Using a wand, wave the top part of your hair. Using bobby pins twist and pin your hair in a low messy bun.

Day 2: KMS HairPlay Messing Crème & HairPlay Playable Texture
Messing Crème adds grip to a lived in 2nd-day style. Using the messing crème about a dime size amount, worked it into your hands and pull back your hair to get control of the fly-a-ways. Playable Texture lets you re-work your style and builds texture each time it’s used. When using playable texture you want to spray from the inside of your hair, lift up each section and spray inside to create that textured look.

Day 3: KMS FreeShape 2-in-1 Styling+Finishing Spray & HairStay Medium Hold Spray
2-in-1 Styling+Finishing Spray is used for adding shine onto dry hair, and also used as a heat protectant. Medium Hold Spray is a working spray which provides style memory & brushable hold, using both of the products you will be able to create a polished effortless look!

Day 4: KMS HairPlay MakeOver Spray & HairPlay Dry Touch-Up
Using MakeOver Spray only on the root and down the mid-shaft to absorb any access oils and build-up on your hair. Dry Touch-Up revives dry, over worked ends and adds a shine as if it were a dry conditioner. On my day 4 look I created just a normal braid. You can be creative and design a braid you have never tried before!

Day 5: KMS HairPlay Design Wax & HairStay Dry Extreme Hairspray
Design Wax has a style memory, this product lets you rework your hair and help create your desired style. Dry Extreme Hairspray has a 24 hour hold with its anti-humidity resistance. To create day 5 style, use a pea size amount of Design Wax, worked it through your fingers and start a fishtail braid. Using bobby pins twist the braid into an updo style and pinned so it’s secure. For a finishing touch spray with the Dry Extreme Hairspray.

Hopefully these tips and a little bit of product knowledge will help you create beautiful results without having to waste time!   By Jen D!

Aurelio Salon has set the make-up trend for this summer!

Aurelio Salon along with Beauty Addicts has set the make-up trend for this summer! Into the BLUE incorporates blue shades for a natural look with pops of blue. Since the blue shadow typically gets and 80’s flashback with hot pink lipstick, I decided to show those who relate 80’s to blue shadow a way to make blue shades work.

Makeup Aurelio Salon Howell

Here’s what we used:
Lipstick: “In the Buff” from Beauty Addicts exclusive line PLAY
Eye Shadow: Solution eyes palette in “Glow” and individual shadows from PLAY – Yacht Club and Eye Candy
Mascara: Show Off
Liner: Top- Effortless Eyes Seduce; Bottom- Effortless Eyes Glow
Highlight/Concealer: Double Deception- 01
Contour: Pressed Powder- Deep
The key to making this look work is to neutralize your color selection allowing the blue to be the pop of color. Most of the colors used were neutral or peachy which complimented the hint of blue liner and shadow on our model’s eye. This look can be used on most eye colors and can be changed to be more complimenting to face shades. A darker skin color can use more blue since the dark pigment can take away from the vibrancy of the shade. K.I.S.S is the guide to follow: Keep it simple, Sweetie!

Want voluminous cascading hair?

Create Voluminous Cascading Hair – Aurelio Salon in New Jersey

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!

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

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

At Aurelio Salon in Howell and Toms River NJ, a client 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.

Her stylist 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!
