Product 101

Shine Enhancers
  • What they do: They create a shiny, glossy finish and make color appear more vibrant
  • Why use them: Not all hair is created equal!  Blonde or curly hair is naturally less shiny, while straight or brunette show good shine.  Dry and brittle hair also lacks luster.
    • Shampoo- Redken Blonde Glam, Catwalk Curlesque or Sleek Mystique
    • Conditioner- Redken Blonde Glam, Catwalk Sleek Mystique
    • Styling product- Bedhead Head Rush, MoroccanOil Glimmer Shine Spray
Curl Booster
  • What they do: Create bouncy, frizz free curls and add definition.
  • Why use them: While we love our curls they need help.  Weather it be because they are lazy or coarse and unruly perfect ringlets don't come naturally.
    • Shampoo- Deva Curl Low Poo & No Poo, Catwalk Curlesque, Bedhead High Definition
    • Styling Products-Bedhead Foxy Curls Contour Cream, Catwalk Curlesque Curls Rock Amplifier
Volume Creators
  • What they do: Volume makers promote lift at the roots and the appearance of thicker fuller hair.  Creating extra body and bounce can be difficult to do while maintaining healthy looking hair.
  • Why use them: Even with the best and most vigorous blow dry technique fine limp strands will still fall flat without good products.
    • Shampoo-Pureology Pure Volume, Paul Mitchell Extra Body Daily
    • Styling Products- Pureology Pure Volume Blow Dry Amplifier, Big Sexy Blow Dry Gel
    • Tools- Medium barrel Vent Brush
  • What they do: Temporarily tame textured hair, smoothing waves, reducing frizz and fly aways.
