How do I get my hair to keep looking as good as it did when I left the salon? hair maintenance is a question many people have after their appointment. When you get your hair styled professionally by an expert hairdresser, like a stylist here in our Exeter salon, you’re getting the benefit of many years of hairdressing experience. Your stylist knows how to give you the perfect hairstyle, creating just the right colour and cut and using ideal products and styling methods.
Most people aren’t professional hairstylists, and trying to maintain a style outside the salon can sometimes be frustrating and seem hopeless. After the first walk outside in humid weather or the first shampoo, the beautiful style that you were so proud of can seem like a distant memory.
Here are some tips for maintaining your style, so your hair can look amazing every day.
1. Ask questions about hair maintenance
Don't be afraid to ask your stylist questions. If you like the way your stylist has got your fringe perfectly bouncy or has smoothed out the kinks in your hair but don't understand how they did it, ask. This way you can recreate your salon hair at home! Our stylists are always happy to give you styling tips. Before you leave, ask your stylist about style alternatives - for example, for when you're very rushed or when it's hot and humid outside.
2. Keep your hair healthy.
Use shampoos, conditioners and styling products formulated for your hair type. At the Hair Boutique, we sell a wide range of products both in salon and online, suitable for every hair type and every hair need. Your stylist can advise you on the products that are best for you.
Ask your stylist how often you should wash and condition your hair. This will depend on your hair’s texture, how oily or dry it is, and how frequently you heat style.
Once in a while, give your hair a break from blow drying, heat styling and tight bands and clips.
When you do heat style, use heat protection. Use the right styling products, and use only as much as you need, so you don’t have too much buildup on your hair.
3. Get regular trims
Damaged, frayed ends can ruin your style. Trimming your hair frequently will ensure that your style still looks perfect.
At the Hair Boutique, we want you to look gorgeous every day, not just the day you visit our salon. Make an appointment online today, or call us on 01392 499162.
