Hats off: Fall hair maintenance and blemish help
Usually when I find myself in a hat, it's time to call for a hair appointment. I’ve seen a lot of hats walking into the salon lately. It's usually clients needing their color done, but it's also the season. It's breezy, and scarves and hats just add that finishing touch to a great cozy look!
Find out how to get skin and hair healthy for November.
Root touch ups
I'm concerned with how long people are waiting to get their roots touched up. Your color will look much better if you're touching it up after a fourth of an inch of re-growth. Wait any longer and you'll get color bands (that's when the color doesn't match because the heat from the scalp only travels a fourth of an inch). When it comes to highlights, you can go six to eight weeks until you need a touch up. It depends on whether you're still rocking the ombre or not.
So how about that face? Now that the suntans have faded and blemished skin with dry spots is creeping in, I've found the answer! It's the Flawless Face Book by Laura Mercier. It comes in three shades — Nude, Sand and Tan.
I use this on the host of the Talking Dead Chris Hardwick and his guests on the show. Trust me, once you get this on your face, it will become your favorite product! It performs and gives a flawless complexion.
Smooth your tresses
Now, for your hair! You have your color done, and you have flawless skin, but your hair is feeling dry and unruly from summer damage. There are so many remedies to choose from, right? Well, here are the best tools and masks to get the job done.
For an express smoothing mask, try this Phyto Smoothing Mask. It will revitalize your hair and add shine. Just leave it in for 30 minutes, wrap in cling film, and then rinse. The Phyto mask is fantastic with its sulphate-free formulas and safe for all skin and scalp conditions.
Your man needs help, too
Is your boyfriend's neck hair driving you insane? Get him these WELLA Contura clippers. They are mini clippers that are cordless and great for traveling. Not enough? You can also get him the WELLA Xpert, which is great for beards and moustache trims, as well.
