how to EXTEND YOUR BLOW-DRY

WHEN YOU'VE JUST GOT THE PERFECT BLOWDRY {FROM MANA}
the last thing you want to do is wash it away the very next day...
Well, you don't have to!

Here are our top tips for extending the life of your preciously sleek locks:

* Choose products wisely. Use creamy pomades and shine serums sparingly. If you must use a silicone serum to tame frizz, don't apply it near the roots. But it's fine to use mousse or voluminizing spray near the scalp—these contain alcohol, which can actually help absorb excess oil. Just use half the amount you normally would to avoid buildup, which can make hair look dirty.

* Protect your hair. As long as you keep the blowdry, pull your hair back off your face tightly when washing your face and applying creams to ensure that skin-care products don't touch the hairline.

* Perk it up. At the first sign of grease, spray your part and hairline with an aerosol dry shampoo. Brush the product through your hair vigorously, because it can leave a white residue. To boost limp hair, spritz a voluminizing spray at the roots, then blast with a blow-dryer for lift. Tame strays with a straightening iron.

* Skip the gym. In other words, if you don't want to restyle your hair for a few days, avoid serious sweating.

update your HAIR COLOUR for winter

SUPER-LIGHT HIGHLIGHTS THAT LOOK PERFECT IN SUMMER
can highlight the wrong things in the winter—like an ashy, palid complexion. The same thing if your hair is too-dark...

Never fear, here's how winterize your hair colour:

If you're blonde, go more golden and less beige, and ask your colourist to weave both highlights and lowlights throughout your hair for a warmer look.

Light brunettes should consider deepening their hair to a warm chestnut colour; dark brunettes, a deep chocolate hue. For both, be sure to ask your colourist for a multidimensional look. If you want highlights, ask for face-framing balayage ones—these hand-painted pieces tend to look more natural on dark hair than do foil streaks.

Amp up red hair with a copper or deep auburn tone—anything but bluish or burgundy, which looks fake. Because red fades quickly, top the colour with a clear glaze to seal it.

Don't go more than two shades lighter or darker—dramatic shades can look severe against pale winter skin.

how to dry your hair, fast!

high speed hair
WHEN IT COMES TO HAIR IN A HURRY, DON'T FIGHT NATURE, WORK WITH IT 
Here are some high-speed hair taming-tricks that will save you time...

 * For a quick blow-dry, first squeeze hair dry with a towel, then flip your head upside down. Hold your hairdryer, which has at least 1600 watts of power, about 10cm away from your hair and use your hands to move your hair around. 

 * Change your part to add height and volume. At the end of the day, flipping hair to the other side to create a new part instantly makes it look fuller and thicker. * Never underestimate the power of the ponytail. When all else fails – a sleek or messed-up version of the ponytail is always a good look. 

 * Wash your hair with colour-enhancing shampoos to brighten fading hair inbetween colour appointments - they give your locks an instant new lease of colour and shine.

5 insider tricks to STOP YOUR HAIR BREAKING

GROWING YOUR HAIR ~ OR TIRED OF IT SNAPPING OR BREAKING...
here are 5 insider tricks that can help stop the breakage factor!

1. Mix up your styles Don't do your ponytail in the same spot every time as there's always a risk of breakage with repeat styling. To help, vary pony position, and use gentle fabric bands.

2. Customise your water temperature Heat is great for cleansing, to help cut grease and oil ~ but since high temps leave hair vulnerable, rinse out your conditioner with cool water, and blast with cold air after drying, to seal the cuticle.

3. Let hair air-dry It's a good idea to take a hot-tool vacation whenever possible. Maintain control over your style while hair dries by clipping it in place. To avoid dents, slide a playing card or some
folded paper towel between the clip and your hair.

4. Change your part Alarming news: If you part your hair in the same place all the time, the part can actually get wider. Yep, years of constant pulling and stress create hair loss, so move yours sometimes!

5. Squeeze-dry—don't towel-dry! Rubbing wet hair with a towel can rip the cuticle so gently squeeze sections instead or use a T-shirt to dry your hair.
