Can I have a moment of your time to tell you something that has had me so excited since I first heard about it? If you are anything like me, you love your hair to have body. I am constantly looking for ways to give more life to my hair, whether it be volumizing sprays, teasing, or even using clip in hair extensions. But let’s face it, who really wants to go through all of that trouble just for a little bit of height?

Waste no more time! Redken has now made life so much easier with a product I have dubbed, “Body in a Bottle”.

What is Body in a Bottle? It is Redken's new line of volumizing shampoo, conditioner, and styling products and they are outstanding! There are three different kinds from which to choose:

• High Rise - If you like more body on top.

• Beach Envy - If you want an all over full body effect.

• Cerafill - If you have extremely thin, fine hair or it has been noticeably thinning then use this more intensive line for fast results.

All three contain Filloxane, which is the latest in hair technology. Filloxane actually goes into your hair shaft and creates a webbing that plumps the strand from the inside out creating a beautiful fuller look instantly.

So what are you waiting for? Book an appointment with us today and ask your stylist which “body in a bottle” is best for you? The only way to go is UP!

We all have mornings where we wake up and everything within us wishes we could stay home from work. We get stuck in a rut and lack motivation to do our normal daily tasks. There are days when hairstylists feel the same way, after all, we are human too. Although we can be plagued this way from time to time, there is nothing more motivating than waking up feeling great about yourself. One way of achieving this is by having a great hair day, and what better way to insure one than by having your hair professionally done? This is all the motivation a hairstylist needs to kick start our day for we count it a privilege to help our clients feel great about themselves.

As hairstylists, we wear many hats. Apart from being someone's caffeine boost, we are also a chemist, a mathematician, an artist, a problem solver, a getaway, a massage therapist, a peacemaker, but most importantly a friend. So thank you for giving us a reason to wake up in the morning with motivation and allowing us to enhance your natural beauty. We take pride and pleasure in serving you, hopefully making your day a little brighter.

How To Protect Your Hair During The Summer

That sun. Those waves. This warm weather.

If there's ever a time for shiny, vibrant, luscious hair, it's summer. But your locks may actually take a hit over the next few months. Sun and water can be damaging, leading to faded color, split ends and a brittle, dry texture. "A lot can go wrong," says Gregory Patterson, a stylist and instructor at Blow, the New York Blow Dry Bar. "Hair color is such an investment, and keratin treatments are super expensive. Hopping in the chlorine or salt water can just strip them right out of the hair and cause it to look dull and dehydrated."

Not exactly the look you were going for, right? Fear not: There are plenty of tricks to protect your hair this summer. That way, you can enjoy the warm weather without having to spend the fall and winter repairing the damage. Patterson and other hair care experts shared their favorite tips:

Consider your geography. If you're close to the equator, the sun will be much more intense. That means it's more likely to dry out your locks and oxidize your color. "I'm a guy, and my hair is pretty simple," says Chris Lospalluto, a stylist at Sally Hershberger in New York. "But I was down in Barbados a couple weeks ago, and it's close to the equator. The texture of my hair was almost completely different. It created a little bit of a wave." In those situations, it's smart to take extra precautions, Lospalluto says.

Get a haircut. It's always best to get a trim before summer. The sun will do extra damage to hair that's already dry, so if you remove those dead ends, you'll be in better shape. Though experts generally recommend getting a trim every six to eight weeks, Lospalluto suggests holding off during the summer. "You'll probably need one in August, but everyone's at the beach," he says. "Just stretch it a few more weeks, let the ocean beat it up and then come in for a conditioning treatment, and we'll refresh it and fix it up."

Start in the shower. If you've been out in the sun and forgot to protect your hair, you can still give it the nourishment it needs. Opt for a hydrating shampoo and conditioner, Patterson says. At Blow, such products provide "intense hydration" – largely thanks to a combination of soy and corn protein. Make sure products don't contain harsh sulfates, parabens or sodium chlorine, which will weigh down your locks.

Use UV-shielding products. You slap sunscreen on your skin to prevent burns. And likewise, an array of products are specifically designed to protect your hair from UV rays. These can help prevent highlighted hair from lightening too quickly and looking fried, and they can keep dark hair from turning brassy or red. Most are finishing products such as UV-based hairspray or leave-in conditioner. "Some of them really do work," Lospalluto says. "I mean, it's not pushing the sun back into the solar system, but they can make a difference." Keep in mind that products always need to be applied to damp hair. Otherwise, they'll sit on the surface and won't sink into the hair.

Dampen your locks. Spray some water on your hair before you go into the pool or ocean. It adds an extra layer of coating, so when you go swimming, your hair isn't as likely to absorb 100 percent of the chlorinated water. "You won't have this huge concentration of chlorine or salt water blast your hair and dry your hair out," Lospalluto says. "It'll be diluted because your hair is already wet." Otherwise, if you're starting out with dry blonde hair, there's a good chance it will be green by the end of the summer, he says.

Brush carefully. Since hair is most fragile when it's wet, don't rip a brush through it after swimming. Spray some detangler on it, and then use a wide-tooth comb to minimize breakage.

Choose strong hair bands. Summer heat practically demands we throw our hair back, and a ponytail with no part can even protect the scalp from exposure to the sun. The problem is that pulling it too tight can cause hair to break -- or just "snap the hair off," as Patterson says, particularly if it's already dry. Pulling your hair back when it's wet is even more damaging. Aim for loose buns and ponytails, and let your hair down before going to sleep at night. Alternate the way you put it up, too – tie it low one day, high another and to the side the next. That way, you're not always stressing the same strands.

Wear a hat –- or something cuter. It's one of the best ways to protect your hair from the sun's rays. And if that baseball cap is killing your look? Get a turban. Patterson just spent a month in Sweden and says they're all the rage. "I guarantee it's going to pop up over here," he says. "Cool, printed turbans are very fashion forward, and they make you look effortless and chic." You could also opt for a scarf, a wide-brim floppy hat or a cowboy hat. Keep in mind that the sun can shine through certain straw hats, so it's still smart to wear a protective product underneath.
