Introducing our New Product Line Formula 18!

Introducing our new product line Formula 18!

We want our client’s hair to look flawless. In the last couple of months we have brought in a lot of new products, and we want to tell you all about them!

WHAT IS FORMULA 18?

FORMULA 18 is a chemically resilient material that ionically binds to the hair’s cuticle and offers long-term protection from harsh hair color, free radicals, peroxides, and environmental stressors. Damaged hair has a raised cuticle, while healthy hair has a smooth, closed cuticle. FORMULA 18™ penetrates between uplifted scales in the cuticle to create a stapling type effect with a smoother, healthier appearance. FORMULA 18 is a blend that creates a highly effective hybrid biopolymer to aid in reducing and fixing damage done to the cuticle while simultaneously strengthening the hair fiber.

Keratin Complex

THE SCIENCE

What is keratin?

Keratin is a protein and the major component in skin, hair and nails; in fact, the hair is mainly comprised of keratin-associated proteins. Keratin acts both as an external protective protein in the cuticle (the outer layers of a hair strand) and as an internal structural protein in the cortex (the inner core of the hair that helps determine its strength).

Keratin is depleted when hair is damaged physically, chemically and/or from environmental factors, such as the sun. This keratin loss exposes the hair’s cortex, making it susceptible to additional damage, and causes porous spots to develop—much like potholes in a road. Replenishing lost keratin helps to correct porosity and smooth the hair’s surface. It restores strength and elasticity, giving the hair a more youthful, healthy appearance.

What is unique about Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy?

The innovative technology in our Smoothing Therapy treatments binds keratin to the hair. This process helps prevent humidity from penetrating the hair, thus locking out frizz. In addition, Keratin Complex Color Therapy incorporates this signature keratin technology into the hair-coloring process, which helps to make the hair stronger and smoother as it undergoes a color transformation.

SMOOTHING THERAPY

Straightening vs. Smoothing

Keratin Complex Smoothing Therapy is different. Conventional straighteners or relaxers may break the protein bonds within the hair’s structure, causing each strand to reform into a permanently straight shape.

Keratin Complex’s revolutionary technology does not break the hair’s bonds, instead delivering the versatility of smoother, healthier-looking hair that can be styled wavy or straight as desired.

Keratin Complex’s signature keratin works effectively on all hair types. Our unique Smoothing Therapy treatments contain high concentrations of keratin that penetrate throughout the hair structure, and then are sealed within the cortex to repair damage.

Results:

There is a 72-hour waiting period meaning you can’t wash or style your hair for 3 days. This might seem like an eternity to some but the results will last for up 5 months with the right care and patience.

The Keratin Express has an 8-hour waiting period and result can last for up to 5 weeks.

5 Men’s Hair Trends for Summer 2016

Men’s hair is so underrated, it hardly ever becomes the light of conversation. Luckily for you, we at BLO Salon have compiled a list of styles and products that represent the top trends for this summer.

Men have a myriad of options when it comes to hair styles. Styles with big, textured hair on top, high fades, low fades or a simple cut for a more natural look.

1

THE QUIFF

The pompadour is a classic men’s hairstyle. This style is a texturized, modern version of the pompadour. It’s both slightly messy and put together at the same time, great for that guy who wants his hair on the short side. This style doesn’t take a long time to style and is the most effortless, tousled hair style any guy can rock this summer!

2

We don’t want to slick back the textured Quiff; we want it to look easy. For this modern version of the pompadour, we want to create tons of volume and movement. You can blow dry your hair, but we recommend using an anti-frizz cream that will help activate those soft curls. For a little more texture and volume, try adding a little sea salt spray.

Easy Rider by Kevin Murphy is an anti-frizz cream with added vitamins and minerals made for your hair to de-frizz and get a more flexible hold to the curls.

3

Our stylist also recommend the Wella EIMI Ocean Spritz, this is a mineral salt spray that can help create a “beachy” texture, protects against dehydration, and UV damage.

4

THE CLASSIC SIDE PART

 5

This classic and versatile hair style is a good style to revisit. It requires little maintenance and won’t fall flat throughout the day, depending on what products you use. The style allows you to head straight from the office to a night out on the town.

It’s a very conservative and clean haircut that features a slick and tight hold on every strand of hair. Once you’ve mastered the ultimate side part, make sure it stays that way with a firm hold gel or molding paste.

For men with thick or course hair we recommend Kevin Murphy Night Rider. This firm hold paste will guarantee a slick hairstyle without flaking and will last all day.

6

For men that have fine hair our stylist recommend using Super Goo by Kevin Murphy. This firm hold gel will leave the hair feeling rubbery meaning it will be flexible and light weight without leaving the hair flaky.

 7

THE CAESAR HAIRCUT

The Caesar is another classic men’s hairstyle that’s making a resurgence in popularity this season. This style features short hair with just a little fringe in front. Think Russell Crowe in “The Gladiator”. There are many benefits to this style. The Caesar is suited for practically any type of hair, and with the right product, very little maintenance is required. This haircut is also well-suited for any type of hair and can go effortlessly with any outfit in your closet.

8

To achieve this look our stylist recommend the Davines Invisible Serum for satiny tousled looks. This serum creates texture and light separation to the hair while also adding shine.

8

This modern version of the Caesar haircut is a popularized version of the buzz cut with tight sides and shorter length at the top of the head. This style is easy to maintain and incredibly simple to style. With a bit of styling cream this look can be achieved in a matter of seconds and will stay in place all day.

9

For this look we recommend the Wella EIMI Grip Cream this flexible molding cream is very light weight and will hold up all day.

10

THE UNDERCUT

The undercut is a style that’s short on the sides and long on top. It adapts well to most any type of hair, whether straight or wavy, full or thinning. In fact, having longer hair on top with the undercut can hide a vast array of hair issues. This top portion can be slicked back with hair gel, styled or left “au naturel.” Regular maintenance is essential with an undercut hairstyle. The undercut with the fade-to-beard is very popular right now and it is very simple to achieve.

11

To achieve this style we recommend a Medium Hold Modeling Gel by Davines, or the Wella EIMI Strong Hold Volume Mousse, for a full bodied wet look that keeps hair in place.

12

13

THE MOHAWK

 

Though arguably not a hairstyle for a conservative office environment, the modern Mohawk is sleek, trendy and easy to maintain. This style can be bold, with just a streak of long hair down the center, or more subdued, with a wider strip of hair. Either way, the sides are short, and the center is left long, a big plus for hot days!

14

For dense, coarse, or ethnic hair that is curly we recommend the OI All-In-One Milk by Davines. This product gives shine, hydrates, controls frizz, and gives body to the hair.

15

For this look our stylist also recommend the Wella EIMI Just Brilliant Shine Pomade to keep the hair in place while also keeping it flexible and soft.

16

Like the undercut, you’ll want to keep the sides short and well-groomed, a little extra growth can take away from the sharp look of this style.

17

To achieve this look our stylist recommend a Medium Hold Finishing Gum by Davines. This product is light weight and flexible and will leave an elastic texture to the hair while keeping it in place.

18

Sporting the latest men’s hairstyles this season doesn’t mean spending a lot of time in front of the mirror every morning, noon and night. Choose one of these trendy, yet classic styles and you are sure to get heads turning wherever you go!

The Lob – The Haircut that is PERFECT for Anyone This Summer!

The lob is the perfect haircut for anyone and everyone. It is essentially a longer versatile version of the bob. This haircut is great for anyone who has fine hair or damaged hair due to styling with heat tools. The lob is perfect because it will help regrow healthy hair without being tied down to short hair. It makes hair look thicker because all the dead stringy ends are gone.

 

1

This is a beautiful in between haircut, it’s not too long and not too short!

 

Styling the Lob

You can slick it all back, part it in the middle, or down the side. Great for people that are on the go because styling takes a lot less time.

Use hair serum to make it shiny like our Davines Oil Non Oil. This product is perfect if you want to wear your hair al natural. It adds shine, softness, controls frizz, conditions, heat protector, and provides a longer-lasting hairstyle.

But if you want to go all out and style your hair either straight, wavy, or curly it takes half the time you would normally spend on long hair.

 

Long-Layered Lob

Perfect for women with long faces because it ads width, or for the girl that has long damaged hair and is afraid of cutting off inches

This style and length allow your hair to be put hair up, or styled any way long hair would.

You can add soft bang, blunt bangs, anything you want! There isn’t just one way to have a lob.

For straight controlled looks we recommend using Davines Relaxing Moisturizing Fluid. This will ensure that when you are styling your hair, all the frizz and humidity will be gone. This products also ads moisture ad shine to your beautiful hair. You don’t have to use hot tools to use this product, but it does offer optimum stylistic support when using hot styling tools.

The Choppy Lob

This by far is my favorite style of lob, with its wispy layers it is modern and young. If your hair is stuck in a rut or you find that your hair hasn’t changed much in 5+ years, this haircut guarantees that you will never be bored.


This lob is very versatile, you can wear it slicked back, wavy, straight, you name it!

To achieve this look our stylist recommend Davines Medium hold Modeling Gel , for a full bodied, wet look.

You can add fun colors to create a more young and edgy feel, if you are feeling even more adventurous.

When we say the lob is for anyone and everyone, we mean it! I know a lot of women are hesitant because they might have a rounder face, but look at how gorgous it looks on round faces!

All of the products mentioned in this post are available at our Newbury Park Beauty Salon. BLO Salon is open five days a week. Schedule an appointment by calling (805) 499-4793 or Schedule Online.

 To help you care for your hair and keep it as gorgeous as possible, we’ve pulled together a list of the best tips for caring for your beautiful blonde locks.

**All the products mentioned in this article are available at our Salon 🙂

Choosing a shampoo and conditioner: As a blonde, you should be gentle and wash your hair less, twice a week ideally. When it comes to choosing a shampoo and conditioner, look for formulas designed specifically for maintaining and protecting your color. Always avoid anything harsh or stripping and opt for sulfate-free products, this goes for any hair type. To maintain your tone and keep your color from turning brassy, look for purple shampoos that aren’t overly clarifying.  Our Kevin Murphy Blonde Angel Rinse is the perfect purple shampoo, it will refresh blonde tones, enhance color, brighten, and restore shine.

kevin-murphy-blonde-angel-rinse

For days that you aren’t washing your hair with purple shampoo, our NOUNOU shampoo and conditioner is highly recommended by our stylists. This is a nourishing shampoo for highly processed or brittle hair…and it smells AMAZING!

nounou-shampoo-conditioner

Another one of our top selling product is our MINU shampoo and conditioner, this is an illuminating protective shampoo for colored hair, perfect for your beautiful hair. This is also perfect for the days you aren’t using your purple shampoo.

 minu-shampoo-conditioner

Keeping it hydrated: If you’re not a natural blonde it generally means your hair is damaged and dehydrated, in other words extremely thirsty! You’ve got to nourish it daily with a leave in-treatment like our MOMO hair potion that will repair and hydrate thirsty hair.

momo-hair-potion

Another great product for dehydrated hair is our OI All in One Milk Oil. This multi-benefit oil is for all hair types and adds shine, softness, silkiness, controls frizz, moisturizes a great detangle, heat protectant, and gives body without weighing down.

oi-all-in-one-milk

Protecting it from heat: Hot tools aren’t good for any color hair, but they’re especially damaging to blonde hair. But since you’re probably going to style your hair regardless, it’s essential to minimize the damage. Take extra precaution with heat styling because blonde hair is essentially more dried out to begin with. Lay off the blow dryer every now and again and let your hair air dry, but if you must use heat tools, our stylist recommend that you try a heat protecting spray like our MELU hair shield that shields your hair from damage.

melu-hair-shield

 

Keeping it safe from water:  It is summer time, and avoiding the pool is next to impossible. As blondes, we’re paranoid every dip into the pool is going to turn our beautiful blonde hair into an unpleasant shade of greenL. This is definitely a risk but there’s a lot you can do to guard your hair against this. Wearing a swimming cap is the ultimate shield, but lets be realistic, most of us won’t do this. To fight the chemicals before and after you swim, you have to apply either conditioner or water (natural like a water bottle) to create a barrier between chlorine or slat water. After you are done swimming make sure to wash your hair as soon as possible to get off any of the residue chemicals or salt water from your hair.

 dede-hair-mist

 

Masks:  Mask are your best friend! Especially those that are formulated for colored hair. Try using one at least once a week. Our MINU hair mask is formulated for colored hair, all you have to do is leave it in for 10-15 minutes and voilà!

minu-hair-mask

Our stylist also recommend the NOUNOU hair mask. It is a nourishing repainting mask for highly processed or brittle hair. This stuff is awesooome…just sayin’.

nounou-hair-mask

Styling: Find a dry shampoo that works for you, like Davines Hair Refresh this will help you out on the days that you aren’t washing your hair. This dry shampoo makes your hair look and feel like brand new without leaving a powdery finish (this stuff smells amazing btw). Refreshing your hair without shampooing will help keep the color for longer. One of my favorite ways to use dry shampoo to give my hair a little bit of volume is to spray it almost like hairspray starting at the roots and then spraying all over :).

hair-refresher

Another great tip from our stylist is to get regular trims. With your hair being constantly bleached, it is more prone to breakage. Blow dry on the cooler setting, especially if you have to blow dry every day. This will help with some major damage that hot air can cause. Use Davines Volume Boosting Mouse for a long lasting blow out that will hydrate hair without weighing it down.

volume-boosting-mousse

For a beachy look adding Davines Sea Salt Spray to your blonde locks will help give texture and bring out any natural curls your hair might have.  This spray adds volume, lifts, and does not have a sticky residue that will make your hair hard or crunchy.

davines-spray

When you are done blow drying your hair or styling according to your preference, we recommend using Davines Invisible No Gas Spray.  This hair spray gives a natural soft brushable hold while leaving the hair with a touchable finish it is humidity resistant with a flexible hold. This is the perfect hair spray for achieving beautiful tousled looks.

davines

Whether you are going out for a swing or headed to the beach, Davines is our must go to brand for styling, protecting, and caring for your beautiful hair.

Who knew being a blonde would be this hard…
