The importance of Self-Care

Silvia Reis1 Comment

As important as it is to build your business and further your career, it is to focus on self-care and your personal well being!

Because let’s face it, you can’t pour from an empty cup! I believe in balance, so for all the hours of hard work you put in, you also need to make sure to make some me-time.

Make time to do things that make your soul happy, taking the time to workout, making the effort to eating healthfully and not forgetting to keep your mental and emotional health in check.

I have definitely have had years of my life where I didn’t balance the two worlds well and of course one would always suffer.

When the world of social media and my passion for hair collide. 

I knew form a very young age that I wanted to do hair. As soon as I could I started working towards being a hairdresser, I did.

When I started doing social media, tutorials on YouTube I always thought this was a small hobby where I got to do more “hair things”

Now over five years later I spend equal time on YouTube as I do in the salon and I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

SPLIT ENDS - Treatment and Prevention

What are split ends and where do they actually affect your hair?

People often think all split ends are at the "end" meaning at the bottom of their hair.  However damage and split ends can run all the way up the hair shaft.  This is where I recommend a dusting (a technique  where bending the hair in a way to expose the split ends and cutting only a few millimeters to remove the damaged area)  You can add a dusting either in addition to a cut or  in place of one if you don't want to change your length but want to keep your split ends at bay.  This is a great service to tackle this issue.

Texture is IN!

Say goodbye to perfectly polished blowouts and sleek ponytails. Because texture is in! As a hairdresser I love that finally natural texture, waves and curls are in. I have been advising my clients who were blessed with gorgeous wavy hair to take advantage of this time to wear their hair a little more natural.

There is so much information online on DIYs and everything you need to know about your hair but when it comes to salon etiquette and tipping there seems to be a lack of information.  So to eliminate a possible uncomfortable convo with your hairdresser in the future here are a few guidelines on how to proceed at your next appointment.

Current hair trends I'm loving

Hair trends are constantly changing and with so many options sometimes it can be overwhelming when it coming to knowing what you want to do with your hair at your next hair appointment. I personally believe in following your own personal style before following any trend. That way you look up to date yet Still feel like you.
