Celebs 5 most popular Hair Colours this Autumn


Jet Black

All-black everything can be daunting, the Kardashian have made it very popular however for a fresh take on this Autumn favorite, try warming up jet-black with ribbons of chestnut highlights. A few piecey, cool-toned strands like Olivia Munn’s look especially stellar on olive skin tones.

Dark Bronde

Already have a darker brownish-blond shade like Khloé Kardashian’s? Ask for a glaze. “With exposure to summer sun, your hair tends to fade and get bleached out.

Warm Copper

Consider this a marriage between dusty rose gold and deep auburn, with a warm metallic spark all its own.

On the brighter end of the copper spectrum sits Emma Roberts’ “cayenne red,” because of the rich red gleam that runs through the color. The shade contrasts her light complexion, and, maybe it’s just us, but it reminds us of autum. If you choose to go this route, it’s vital to keep the red hue from falling flat, so follow these celebrity-endorsed tips for keeping your red as vibrant as possible.

High-Contrast Roots

For anyone who dyes their hair, you understand how annoying root touch-ups can be. Instead of rushing into the salon, let your roots work in your favor this fall. By growing out your hair without a salon touch-up, it takes on a naturally lived-in appearance that celebrities like Hailey Baldwinhave proved to be fans of.

The best part of high-contrast roots, like Joan Smalls’ chic look  is that there’s pretty much zero upkeep. Simply let your roots grow in and your blond ends grow out, and sooner or later—boom—you’ve got yourself ombré hair.

Ombré

If you thought ombré was over, think again, because it’s still going strong. Get Jenna Dewan Tatum’s perfect two-tone look by going cool on top, warm on the bottom. Have your colorist add a caramel-color tone from midlengths to ends in order to soften a natural brunette base.

Sandy Beige

Great news for those of you who love ultra-blond highlights in the summertime: By adding some beige-toned streaks like Behati Prinsloo’s to your hair for fall, you’ll end up with incredibly beautiful dimension and richness. Keep the color lasting longer with a few of our favorite shine-inducing hair products.

For a different take on the shade, like Jordyn Woods’ here, aim for a sandy allover color that gradually deepens, just a touch, at the roots.

How your face Shape affects the hair Extension style you chose

Getting right hair extension style for face shape

Hair styles, hair extensions, hairpieces and wigs should compliment the shape of your face. If you not sure about which style will be most flattering on you, use the following suggestions as a guide to find a style that works with your face shape.

At need a Hair Makeover we discuss seven different face shapes during your free consultation, diamond, heart, oblong, oval, pear, round, and square, and what styles are most appropriate for those face shapes.

To determine your face shape, look into a mirror and pull your hair back. Compare your face shape to our illustrations.

Diamond

The Diamond shaped face has wider cheekbones with a narrow chin and forehead. A diamond-shaped face allows for lots of hairstyle options.

Diamond shaped faces need a hairstyle or wig styled with fullness or width in the forehead hairline and the lower cheekbones of the face near the chin.

Hair should be styled close to the head at the upper cheekbones where the face is broadest. Bands or a layered fringe will disguise a narrower forehead.

The fullness at the jawbone with a style such as a bob or a shoulder length cut with jaunty layering to add some movement will give the illusion of a more oval shaped face. hairstyle or wig styles that tuck in behind the ears also will work well, in addition to showing off your wonderful cheek bone structure.

Heart

Heart Face shape

The Heart shaped face has a large and wider forehead, high cheek bones, with sometimes a widow’s peak hairline, and a narrow v-shaped chin.

To soften the forehead width, look for a hairstyle or wigs that allows you to bring some hair across it. Keep the hairstyle closer to the head near the eyes and fuller around the jaw, as well as below and in front of the earlobes where additional width is desired.

A chin length bob is great for this type of face shape as it makes the jaw area appear wider and more balanced with the rest of your face. Longer, layered hairstyles also work well.

Oblong

Oblong Face shape for hair extension

The Oblong shaped face has an elongated rectangular shape featuring a long straight cheekline.

The hairstyle or wig style you choose should add width to help minimize the vertical length of your face.

Look for hairstyle or wig styles that are short to medium in length with longer top layers such as wedges and graduated bob cuts. Chin and shoulder length looks that turn under or flutter out also work very well to add width. Straight across bangs, feathered bangs, or half bangs with side parts soften the forehead.

Layered styles in medium and longer lengths with wavy and curly textures will flatter the face and neck while obscuring the straight long lines of an oblong face.

Oval

Oval Face shape for hair extensions

The Oval shaped face has no one area the is more dominant than another.

An oval face is well proportioned, with the length of the face longer than the width. The oval face allows for the most versatility in hairstyle or wig choices.

Most hairstyle or wig styles whether short or long, straight or wavy are suitable. Therefore, consider your best features such as eyes, checks, or mouth and then accentuate them with your hairstyle or wig style.

Pear

Pear Face shape for hair extensions

The Pear shaped face features a distinctly narrow forehead. The cheekbones and jaw line essentially broaden to showcase a wider look, while the chin adopts a rounded shape.

With a pear shaped face it is best to look for hairstyle or wigs that will add volume above the jaw line. Layers create fullness on the upper half of the face.

Don’t be afraid to show your forehead which draws attention upward and away from a full jaw line. If you have bangs, angle them slightly and tuck them behind the ears to frame the jaw line and draw attention upward.

Hair on the sides of your head and at the nape are best set and combed in a pattern close to the head since any style too voluminous will add weight to the bottom of the face.

Round

Round Face shape for hair extensions

The Round shaped face has a round chin and hairline with the widest part of the face through the cheekbones. Wig styles with a fullness and height at the crown, but not at the ears, are a good choice.

Off center parts help reduce the roundness. hairstyle or wig with short hair styles with a swept-back direction or with hair styles that are longer than chin length should be considered. hairstyle or wig which have layering at the top to achieve fullness while keeping the rest of the cut relatively close to the face, will help make your round face shape appear longer and narrower.

Square

Square Face shape for hair extensions

The Square shaped face usually has a strong square jawline with an equally square hairline. Look for hairstyle or wig that add height to the top and narrowness at the sides.

Height at the crown will elongate the symmetrical square shape. Short-to-medium length hairstyle or wig, especially with waves or roundness around the face or wispy bangs to soften the angular shape are also good choices. Off-center parts with height at the crown look great on square shaped faces.

Wearing a hairstyle or wig with layers and wispy looks around the face is another way to soften the shape of your face.

Conclusion

So the next time your considering changing your hair, just don’t focus on what’s trending but tale into consideration your face shape.

Why it is important to use gloves when dying hair or hair extensions

What is paraphenylenediamine and where is it found?

How can paraphenylenediamine cause skin irritation when dying hair or hair extensions and where is it found?


Article by Diane Shawe Monday M.Ed 

Paraphenylenediamine (PPD) is a chemical substance that is widely used as a permanent hair dye. It may also been found in textile or fur dyes, dark coloured cosmetics, temporary tattoos, photographic developer and lithography plates, photocopying and printing inks, black rubber, oils, greases and gasoline.

People working with PPD such as hairdressers or hair extensions technicians may develop dermatitis on their hands; patch testing usually reveals hypersensitivity to PPD. Occupational allergy to PPD has been found in a milk tester whom through laboratory work was in frequent contact with PPD solution. Dermatitis on the hands and occasional spreading to the arms and upper chest occurred.


YouTube is the undisputed champion in free visual knowledge transfer. I have seen lots of hair technicians demonstrating how to dye hair and often they are not using gloves.

Unprocess virgin Hair Extensions


In 2015/6 alone nearly £15m worth of treated human hair – has been washed and sometimes dyed – was imported into the UK, according to Customs and Excise. 

It comes mainly from India, China and Europe. On top of that almost £10m worth of wigs,  false beards, eyebrows and eyelashes made from the stuff were also imported. 

Those in the trade estimate the hair extension industry alone is worth £60m in this country, although there are no official figures.

When it comes to our tresses, the rarest and most expensive is natural blonde hair, Des Tobin a professor of cell biology at Bradford University, who has studied hair and the trade.

“About 90% of the world’s population has dark brown hair,” he says. “It’s actually really hard to get natural, adult hair that is blonde. The rarity of hair colour will dictate the price. Blonde hair can cost up to three times as much as dark hair.”

Recently we have seen a flood of natural Virgin remy hair which is unprocessed enter the market place. It is a lot cheaper so an increase in home and salon hair bleaching and toning is on the rise.

PPD in Hair Dye and the importance of gloves

Millions are spent annually on home hair dyes, salon balayage and multi colour ombre colours. The use of PPD as a hair dye is popular because it is a permanent dye that gives a natural look. Hair can also be shampooed without becoming decoloured and perming to achieve waves or curls can be done without difficulty. 

PPD hair dyes usually come packaged as 2 bottles, one containing the PPD dye preparation and the other containing the developer or oxidizer. PPD is a colourless substance that requires oxygen for it to become coloured. It is this intermediate, partially oxidised state that may cause allergy in sensitive individuals. Fully oxidized PPD is not a sensitiser thus individuals with PPD allergy can wear wigs or fur coats dyed with PPD safely.

What are the reactions to PPD allergy?

Reaction caused by the use of hair dye in mild cases usually only involves dermatitis to the upper eyelids or the rims of the ears. In more severe cases, there may be marked reddening and swelling of the scalp and the face. The eyelids may completely close and the allergic contact dermatitis reaction may become widespread.

Severe allergy to PPD can result in contact urticaria and rarely, anaphylaxis. PPD has also been suspected of precipitating contact leukodermaand vitiligo in genetically predisposed individuals.

What should you do to avoid PPD allergy?


For the Technician


If you are a hairdresser or hair extensions technician, rule one when working with any chemical that could cause dermatitis is to wear gloves. I have seen many youtube demo videos were the technician is not wearing any gloves. 


For the Client


If your client have an allergy to PPD  you should avoid the use of all oxidation type hair dyes. These are usually recognised by coming in a 2-bottle preparation. If you have been informed by your client or you should have completed a client consultation form checking for allergy history (most clients won’t know what PPD is) to be safe perform a patch test or suggest a semi-permanent hair dyes which may be a suitable alternative but approximately 10% of individuals who are allergic to PPD also react to these; 


Patch testing


Patch testing to confirm sensitivity should be performed prior to their use. Metallic hair dyes and vegetable rinse hair dyes may be used but these do not provide permanent colouring. Some newer permanent and semipermanent hair dyes use para-toluenediamine sulfate (PTDS) instead of PPD. This is likely to be tolerated by about 50% of people who are allergic to PPD. Patch testing is recommended prior to use.

Related substances to PPD which may also cause an allergic reaction


Azo dyes: used in semi-permanent and temporary hair dyes, ballpoint pen inks, gasoline and diesel oil, and as colouring agent in foods and medications 
Benzocaine and procaine: these are local anaesthetics used by doctors and dentists

Sulfonamides, sulfones, sulfa drugs: 

PPD allergy may make you sensitive to the use of these drugs also, discuss with your doctor before changing or stopping your medication
Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA): this is used in sunscreens and creams that are readily available in over-the-counter preparations. You should only used sunscreens that are labeled ‘PABA-free’. Ask your pharmacist for suitable alternatives.

Para-aminosalicylic acid: used for tuberculosis

Benefits of using Almond Oil to Pre-Condition Hair Extensions

Almond Oil can help keep Hair Extensions hydrated

One of the most common problems with some hair extensions after a few weeks wear or after washing them they can become dry, frizzy or stringy.  Hair extensions that are exposed to central heating, air conditions or electric lights will dry out much quicker than your natural hair and need daily rehydration with a leave in conditioner and at least one deep conditioning treatments every 14 days.

We are all familiar with the Almond nut but most people don’t know much about the oils and how to use it.

The Almond Nut Family

Almonds are a Rosacea family in the Amygdalus subenus and the genus Prunus. They originated in the Levant region of the Middle East and have since been used worldwide in healing and culinary applications. There are two types of commercially grown almonds, bitter almonds or Amygdalus communis and sweet almonds or Prunus amygdalus dulcis.

Benefits of Almond Oil for Hair

Almond oil has several important nutrients including polyunsaturated and mono fatty acids as well as vitamins E, D, B1, B2, B6 and A. These are all helpful nutrients that allow you to grow strong, healthy hair strands.

The high vitamin E content in almond oil is particularly helpful for conditioning the hair. Sweet almond oils can safely be used to in aroma therapy to carry these oils with no side effects. This is helpful in conditioning the hair and skin.

Many hair care products will add almond oil because of the nourishing and smoothing benefits it provides the hair cuticles, allowing people to grow thick, long, strong hair. It can be used to make your hair shinier. You can also mix almond oil with tea tree or neem oil and massage it into the scalp to increase circulation and relieve dandruff. Regularly massaging a combination of almond, rosemary and lavender oil in the hair can help reduce the amount of hair that falls out each day.

Use Almond Oil to improve your hair condition

Uses of Almond Oil for Hair for the ScalpMassage the oil into your scalp for 15-20 minutes, then massage a bit into the hair. If you have the time allow the almond oil to sit for at least 45 minutes, but you can also leave it in overnight. After it has been allowed to sit, rinse it away with your regular shampoo.For Hair Growth Combine 3 tablespoons of almond oil in a bowl with a pinch of cayenne pepper and three tablespoons of black castor oil. Warm the mixture slightly and apply it to the scalp and massage it in for 10 minutes.Wrap your head in a towel and leave the mixture in place for an hour.Then wash the oil away with shampoo.

Repeat this ritual twice a week for a few months to see thicker hair start to grow.

For Lustrous Hair

Rub a few drops of almond oil on your palms and apply it to the hair to make your hair look more lustrous. This is particularly helpful for curly hair.

For Split Ends

Those that suffer from split ends can massage it into the hair to help keep your hair from splitting.

For Silky Soft Hair Create a thick paste with water and rice flour and allow it to sit overnight.The next day add an egg and three tablespoons of sweet almond oil into the mixture and allow it to sit for 10 minutes. You can also add a few drops of lavender oil or rose water if you find the smell of the egg unpleasant.

Apply the mixture to your hair and allow it to sit on the hair for an hour then wash it off with cool water. Towel your hair and allow it to dry. Add an additional dose of almond oil to your scalp and leave it in place overnight before shampooing your hair again.

This will give your hair a silk appearance. It is recommended to take on this process on the weekend as it takes a long time to complete.

Selecting of Almond Oil for Hair

If you want to get the most out of using sweet almond oil you should

Make an effort to purchase certified organic almond oil. Be sure to read the labels of these products to ensure that the bottle is fresh Check the ingredients to ensure you are purchasing a genuine product.

Genuine, 100 percent almond oil should be slightly thick compared to cheaper products. If you purchase a fresh bottle you can keep your oil for up to a year, though some manufacturers claim that it will last for up to 3 years.

Six tips on how to avoid water retension

What Causes Water Retention and How to Avoid It

Are your feet, ankles, hands, or legs often swollen? This happens because of water retention, a condition known as edema. It is characterized by the accumulation of fluids in the tissues, circulatory system, and cavities.
Water retention, also known as fluid retention refers to an excessive build up of fluid in the circulatory system, body tissues, or cavities in the body. Up to 70% of the human body consists of waterwater exists both inside and outside our body’s cells. Edema is the medical term for swelling.

The main causes of edema are pregnancy, not being physically active, premenstrual syndrome, sedentary lifestyle, and certain medications. But, swelling can also occur during a long flight.

Most cases of edema are not serious. However, sometimes it can indicate heart failure or kidney disease, so it’s important to treat it on time.

Here are the main causes of edema as well as suggested ways of how to reduce the swelling and avoid water retention, as long as there’s no underlying condition.

6 Causes of Edema and suggested solutions

1. Excessive Sodium Intake

If your diet is based on sodium-rich foods and if you don’t drink enough water, your body will use its water reserves. This, in turn, results in water retention. The human cells can expand up to 20 times with the help of water. So, the important thing here is to know which foods contain high amounts of sodium, so you can start avoiding them.

Besides salt, sodium can also be found in canned vegetables, some condiments, processed meat, and other processed foods. On the other hand, Celtic and Himalayan sea salt can reverse the water retention caused by table salt.

2. Magnesium Deficiency

Lack of magnesium can lead to edema. This mineral is vital for most functions in the body, so insufficient amounts of it can hinder the proper function of the body. This will eventually lead to water retention.

One research showed that taking 200 milligrams as a daily dose of magnesium can reduce water retention in women with premenstrual symptoms. Increasing the intake of magnesium-rich foods or taking it as a supplement can relieve this condition.

Here are the foods which contain the highest amount of magnesium: dried fruits, spinach, dark green veggies, dark chocolate, nuts, avocados, peas, and whole grains.

3. Lack of Vitamin B6

Deficiency in vitamin B6 can lead to edema since it’s involved in many aspects of water balance in the body.

A study published in the Journal of Caring Sciences involved women who experienced water retention caused by premenstrual syndrome. They took vitamin B6 on a daily basis, and their condition was soon improved. This vitamin is water-soluble, so it requires many cofactors to function properly. Therefore, it’s best to obtain it from whole foods.

Foods high in this vitamin are potatoes with skin, chicken, lean beef, turkey, tuna, dried fruit, bananas, sunflower seeds, and pistachio nuts.

4. Lack of Potassium

This mineral is vital for the proper function of cells, tissues, and organs in the body. It plays a significant role in the maintenance of normal water balance in the body.

Potassium deficiency can result from not consuming enough potassium-rich foods but high amounts of salt. This will eventually lead to edema. Lack of this mineral can cause weight gain, muscle spasms, and cramps. Potassium can reduce water retention due to its ability to reduce the sodium levels.

You can find this mineral in most fruits, especially in watermelon, honey melon, and rockmelon.

5. Dehydration

Dehydration occurs when you don’t drink enough water. This condition forces the body to retain water in order to survive, resulting in swellings in your feet, ankles, hands, or legs. Luckily, it’s not hard to improve your condition. Just drink enough water and potassium-rich juices, and avoid soda drinks and coffee.

6. Excessive Consumption of Processed Foods

As we mentioned, processed foods are full of sugar and sodium – one of the leading causes of water retention. But, they also contain artificial food additives whose toxic nature puts a load on the kidneys and the liver.

Foods which contain high amounts of sugar including artificial sweeteners can cause spikes in the levels of insulin and blood sugar.

Therefore, we recommend avoiding processed foods as much as you can.

Why what we do with 30% of our life matters

  1. four feild of energy that generat passion by Diane ShaweWhen we die, our money remains in the bank…
    Yet, when we are alive, we don’t have enough money to spend.
    In reality, when we are gone, there is still a lot of money not spent.

The cruel reality is only 30% of what we do matters and this is why?:
It is more important to live longer than to have more wealth.
So, we must strive to have a strong and healthy body, It really doesn’t matter who is working for who.

For instance…

□ In a high end hand phone, 70% of the functions are useless because we don’t use them!
□ For an expensive car, 70% of the speed and gadgets are not needed.
□ If you own a luxurious villa or mansion, 70% of the space is usually not used or occupied.
□ How about your wardrobes of clothes?
70% of them are not worn regularly!

A whole life of work and earning…

70% is for other people to spend.
So, we must protect and make full use of our 30%.

👉Go for medical check-ups even if not sick.
👉Drink more water, even if not thirsty.
👉Learn to let go, even if faced with grave   problems.
👉Endeavour to give in, even if you are in the right.
👉Remain humble, even if you are very rich and powerful.
👉learn to be contented, even if you are not rich.
👉Exercise your mind and body, even if you are very busy.
👉Make time for people you care about

WHICH 5 HAIR EXTENSIONS TECHNIQUES  ARE THE MOST PROFITABLE?

With the growth of Hair Extensions let us examine the most profitable techniques for your mobile business or Salon

Article written by Diane Shawe M.Ed
Founder www.hairextensionstraining.academy

We have seen the hair extension market grow over the past 15 years, now there are more hair extension techniques than ever before and it can be confusing to decide which is the right one for your business or for your clients.

If you are thinking of becoming a qualified technician, it is important to consider how potential clients might make their decision.  Some people will make a decision based on their budget, others on their hair type and life style, some on what their friends recommended.  Whilst these points are interesting, it is important for you to consider techniques that will service your clients and keep them coming back.

Here are just a few tips to help with your decision making process.

Wigs:  Wigs are a quick and easy way to give a client a quick makeover.  What you need to bear in mind is that the cheaper the wig the more un-natural it will look.  If you have a client with special needs then it might be possible to make at least 28% profit.  We know that the internet has changed a lot of shopping habits and clients can sources their own wigs on line or in some of the high street hair supplier shops for as little as £25.00.  Sourcing or even making a custom wig for a client is an alternate route and they will pay between £220 – £600 for a good quality wig which could last for up to 12 months.

2. Hair Pieces: There are lots of different hair pieces from pony tails to rear hair attachments in all different shades, curly, straight or plaits. There are also specialist hair pieces for thinning hair that can help disguise any  thinning hair problems.  The thing to bear in mind is that hair pieces are not often very secure and could make a client feel a little self concious.  Some of the ponytail pieces can be securely fixed, for a temporary look.  INSTALLATION 45 MINS.

3. Integrated Weaves: This is when wefts of hair is sewn onto a fine cornrow which is then hide by the bulk of your hair on top.  It is a popular technique because if done correctly it can look very natural and offer up a robust and secure hair enhancement solution.  If the client looks after the hair they can reuse it when they get it re-tightened. Clients could pay between £190 – £430 for the integrated weave and £60 – £120 for a retighten every 8 weeks. INSTALLATION 2 HOURS – RETIGHTEN 1 HOUR – VERY PROFITABLE

4. Pre-tips: This is small pieces of hair that have been pre bonded together.  They can be added in sections all over the head to aid thickening, give the impression of highlights or lowlight and length.  Pre-tips can be applied using heat, micro rings or even small elastic bands.  Be aware that they have to be professionally removed so as not to damage your own hair. Client could pay between £160 – £500 for installation. Retighten every 10 – 12 weeks can be expensive as it involves removing and reapplying (sometimes new hair) £55 per hour.

5. Strand by Strand (glue gun): This is when hot bond heated up in a glue gun is used to bond small sections of hair to the recipients own hair.  It was a very popular technique in 6 years ago, but requires professional application and removal by a qualified technician.  Can give the appearance of flyaway hair that client could somewhat run their fingers through.  It is a very time consuming technique and is much better for a long term wear over 3-4 months. Clients could pay anything between £400 – £2100. INSTALLATION – UPTO 5 HOURS – RETIGHTEN – 6 HOURS – MODERATELY PROFITABLE.

6) Clip in hair extensions: These are now very popular.  They are best used for lengthening mid should length hair.  If the hair is shorter they don’t sit very well because they can be a little bulky in appearance.  They don’t offer up much security unless they have been professionally fitted.  This is when a very small cornrow is done and the clips are slipped through for much added security.  Great for an evening occasion but not advisable for long term wear.  Clients can now buy these themselves or even make them from purchasing wefted hair.  NOT PROFITABLE
