Make Your Ponytails Damage-Free

posted by Alissa

Ponytails are convenient, fun and stress-free but have a big downfall: they easily damage hair.  Not only are you breaking your hair by pulling and tugging, but you are also loosening the hair follicles from the roots, which will lead to hair falling out faster than it should…aka balding, eek!

Here are some tips to keeping your ponies safe:

  • When you are done with your day, always take them out and brush free. 
  • Vary the location of your ponytail, so the same spot doesn’t get all the stress. 
  •  Put a layer of protection on before, like Davines Melu Shield.
  • Look for soft coated hair ties…the rougher the material on the band, the rougher it will be on your hair.  These ties are a great buy. 
  • Wear your ponytails, buns and braids looser…they are just as cute and you will find yourself not pulling tight all day.



Or make it easy and come to Blast -we will create an adorable, damage-free updo just for you!

Try Your Own Fab Updo

posted by Alissa

Another gorgeous up-do done by Blast!

 

If you want to create this elegant style at home, here are some tips to get you close.

Start by spraying Davine's volume boosting  moisturizing mist in your hair for extra volume and protection.  Tease the top of your head with a comb until you have a good volume.  Pin if needed.  Then comb the bottom of your hair to one side and start pinning, holding your hair in a side ponytail.  When you have enough pins to hold the hair over on it's own, gently take your pony to the other side, twisting to form the circle you see in this one.  Pin until it is set.  

 

 

 

It won't be exactly the same, but fairly close.  And if it gets too frustrating, stop by Blast and let the experts handle it!

Get Rid of the Frizz

posted by Alissa

Notice your hair is always frizzy? Try this simple tip to see if it does the trick: get rid of the towel wrapped around your hair after you shower. 

 

 

 

Not only does it damage your hair, but the rough cotton causes your hair cuticles to open and go every which way...aka frizz.

Instead squeeze the water out of your hair with your hands, and let air dry for a while before blowdrying.

Spring Nails

posted by Alissa

 

 

This has been my FAVORITE Spring nail polish so far... it's so subtle and just seems to go with everything.

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

But if you are looking for something brighter, this pink is out of control! It's adorable with whites or when you're rockin' your bikini.

 

 

 

 

These are amazing go-tos...but if they don't work find your own Spring color! - Essie

Natural Lemon Highlights

posted by Alissa

As the Spring weather starts to get hotter and hotter, here is a fun tip to try while you are enjoying the sun:  squeeze some lemon juice in your hair before laying out for soft, natural highlights.  

The citrus will create subtle highlights that naturally blend into your hair without damaging it like normal dye.

 

 

When you have your color perfected, come get your hair styled by our awesome Blast stylists!
