Prep your Hair for the Holidays
Updated: Nov 9, 2019
It's hard to believe it's already November but here we are again! It's time to start preparing for the holidays and that preparation includes your hair. Here are a few things to get yourself holiday photo ready...
CUT HYDRATE REFINE
If you haven't cut all the dry damaged hair from the summer off already, it is now time to do so. Allow your stylist to cut off enough length to ensure only the healthy stuff is left.
Applying a deep conditioning mask at home once a week is ideal. If you don't purchase one to take home or just can't find the time to make it happen weekly, book a deep conditioning treatment with your haircut and/or color service. My personal favorite is the B3 Demi Conditioning treatment. This treatment strengthens the hair from the inside out, protects, and adds incredible hydration and softness. Proper hydration will also fight off static fly aways. To maintain the effects of a great treatment be sure to use cooler water when showering as hot water not only fades your color rapidly, but will also zap the moisture right out.
Ask your colorist to refine your haircolor to enhance your new cut and the various ways you will be styling your hair for the upcoming holiday events. The last thing you want is for your hair to look like a solid shape in photos. Your colorist will know how to add dimension that enhances your hair's best attributes.
STOCK UP ON HOLIDAY GIFT SETS
Most salons offer Holiday gift sets this time of year. You will find that Nov & Dec are the best months of the year to purchase haircare products due to the insane discounts of bundled sets.
Your drugstore shampoos and conditioners are not going to protect your professionally colored hair so now is the perfect time to invest in yourself!
Added bonus is you can cross off a few relatives from your holiday shopping list after purchasing these since anyone would absolutely love the gift of professional grade products.
BOOK YOUR HOLIDAY PARTY HAIR APPOINTMENTS
Have an office holiday party or family photo session coming up? Be sure to prebook your maintenance appointments with these dates in mind. Also, consider booking styling appointments the day of your special holiday events. One less thing to stress about!
