In today’s world hair braids have become one of the biggest trends. Something so simple and classic that they may be used in everyday life, formal styles and even in the biggest catwalks. The Kardashians have introduced the dutch braid as a casual but still chic look. Their iconic look is the most popular and known as two single dutch braids on each side. Another simple everyday look loved by our DeBerardinis staff; includes french braids halfway into a mini messy bun. Braids are one of the easiest and least time consuming when it comes to your daily looks. A simple soft braid down the back or to the side can change your hair from just ‘meh’ to WOW! Even for the busy moms with no time to spare in the mornings, they could do a quick clean braid to keep their daughters hair back and looking cute. If you’re going for a more formal look, a side braid with loose curls is one of the most popular, and never goes out of style. The half-updo with loose curls, and waterfall braids in the back is a very trendy choice among our grad and prom girls. They are a super traditional style that have been quickly growing into much more creative looks. Whether it be soft swept, super harsh, or clean sleek look, braids can fit in for any age, any occasion, and any hair type, long or short. They are so diverse with many variations that I don’t see this trend going anywhere anytime soon!
Braids are life!

Taking it to the next level: Kerastase Nutritive
Dry hair requires a lot of our attention. It’s dull, brittle and hard to detangle. The condition depends on a variety of factors such as genetics, or daily habits. Blow-drying, ill-suited products or repeated coloring are all factors that can contribute to hair sensitization. Because of these many different causes, there are several types of dry hair.
Introducing the new and improved Kerastase Nutritive line. More premium, more modern, more iconic. Irisome: for normal to dry hair. Magistral: dry to severly dry. Protocole immunite: all levels of dryness. With the invention of long-lasting nutrition, Kérastase Nutritive acts on both the cause of hair nutrition loss—oxidation—as well as on the consequences—dryness. The Nutritive line offers different levels of haircare repair for dry hair. The first level nutrition Nutritive Irisome is ideal for normal to dry hair. For very dry and sensitized hair, the Magistral line is perfect and will protect against heat tools.
Glucose: delivers an energic boost of nutrition
Proteins: restore nutritive deficiencies; nourish and soften

Do you ever wonder how you could achieve that clean soft hair that’s full of bounce? Our hair colourists are here to help you get rid of that dull, lifeless looking hair from being over-processed, and coloured. The average client comes for their hair colour services every 4 – 6 weeks. In between those 4 – 6 weeks they need to be advised on how to care for their hair at home to keep it looking it’s best! The aftercare is one of the most important aspects of a having a colouring service. For starters, you should be using a shampoo and conditioner that’s specifically made for your hair type. Our brands Goldwell & Kerastase will provide optimal colour care, and they offer a wide selection for various hair types such as damaged, fine, anti-frizz, curly, colour fade protection, etc. They also provide specific shampoo and conditioner for luminous blonde & highlighted hair, which is designed to reduce brassiness. When using products by Goldwell, and Kerastase, always keep in mind that a little goes a lot way. Remember when using your shampoo to always create a good lather on your scalp, only add more when needed. Before applying your conditioner, make sure to take out all the excess water that is still in your hair. By doing this, you’re allowing the conditioner to completely nourish the hair. Keep in mind that you should be applying conditioner from mid-lengths to ends, and avoiding the roots to achieve more volume by not weighing down your hair. When the time does come around for your next colour service, I always recommend having a treatment done. Our Kerastase fusio dose is our in salon ritual, as well as our deep conditioning masks. This is the best advice to keep your hair healthy, shiny, and to preserve your colour until your next appointment!

Summer is here!
After months hiding under toques and hoods , it’s time to get up, dress up, and look your best. Head into your salon today and give yourself a new summer look. This years summer colour trends are all about fun, being bold and adding dimensions to your hair.
The ombre look is the most requested look since last year and looks like it’s going to be around for awhile. I’m a big fan of ombre myself, I find it adds a certain sexiness to your look. This year we’re taking ombre to a whole new level. It’s not just for blondes and brunettes, I’m talking about purple or midnight blue and the red on black that Rihanna has been sporting. Short hair clients are starting to request ombre too. It makes you look bold and fun without taking away that edgy look from the cut. It can also soften up the cut and add a girly touch depending on what look you’re going for.
Another great look is having what’s known as sun kissed dimensions. This means adding different tones (light and dark) to your colour without changing what you already have. It great for brunettes who refuse to completely lighten their hair, but want a change for the summer. You can add caramel, or hazelnut brown hightlights depending on how dark your base is. It cannot be more then 2 levels lighter then your base colour, if it is the contrast is too much and you lose that soft dimension look. For Blondes who also want to add dimensions to their colour they can add a cool tone, or warm tone again depending on the base.
Remember chose carefully, sometimes keeping it simple and soft can be the most look amazing on you.
