Of course someone named Natasha Sunshine would know how to keep hair at its healthiest during the sunny summer months!
The Pureology PureArtist knows that UV rays, pool chemicals and extreme humidity that summer is known for can cause breakage, dulling and out-of-this-world frizz. Below are a few of her suggestions for keeping hair healthy in the summer.
1. Use a hair masque (try Pureology Strength Cure Restorative Masque) at least twice a week to give your hair an extra dose of nutrients.
1. Skip using a leave-in conditioner and thermal shield (like Pureology Colour Fanatic) before blow-drying. It’ll keep your color from oxidizing and Colour Fanatic in particular has 20 beautifying benefits.
2. Toss a leave-in conditioner in your beach or pool bag to spray before you swim or bask in the sun.
2. Blowdry your hair every day. Summer is a great time to embrace air-drying for wavier locks (they’re very on-trend, you know)!
3. Mix an ounce of your daily conditioner (Sunshine recommends Pureology
3. Skimp on deep-conditioning. Condition every time you wash and use a masque for a minimum of 5 minutes on a weekly basis.

Maintaining healthy hair can be difficult in the summer. Between sun, salt and chlorine, your clients’ hair can take a major hit.
5 TIPS TO HEALTHY SUMMER HAIR
Oils can be hair’s best friend in the summer. Get one that’s light, like Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine, to deliver restorative and protective properties. Good for second- or third-day hair and adding shine.
“Take advantage of the braid parade,” Villa says. The trendy style is great for a day by the pool or at the beach, and in the evening just unbraid for beachy waves and curls.
Avoid high heat with tools in the summer–hair is already fragile during these hot months. “Stick to medium and color-treated temperatures,” Villa says. “And slow down to speed up. Slow down the pass with the iron so heat is directed to the sections of hair that need to be altered; it prevents unnecessary wear on hair and styles it much faster.”
Make sure your client doesn’t leave the salon without an anti-humidity, frizz-proof hairspray. Villa recommends Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile hairspray; it’s formulated with vitamins C and E to protect hair and prevent color fading, and it provides 24-hour humidity resistance and 8-hour control.
Blondes especially tend to need help in this department. Pump up shine with a gloss (a la Redken Shine Flash 02 Glistening Mist). It has vitamin B5 and camelina oil to boost hair’s natural shine and control frizz for an ultra-polished look.

Wella Professionals will be creating a full service hair salon at the P&G Family Home for The Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, situated in the Olympic Park. Building on the huge success of Wella’s activity at The London 2012 Olympic Games, the brand will be fielding twelve top colorists and stylists from around the world who will travel to Sochi to be part of an elite team providing hair services to beautify athletes and their families.
The dozen Wella stylists selected are a part of Wella and Proctor and Gamble’s inspirational ‘Thank you, Mom’ campaign. Building on the positive events at the London 2012 Olympic Games, the stylists will be extending their expert color services, styling and hair treatments to the athletes taking part in The Winter Games as well as their biggest supporters, their moms.
In the run up to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, some of these top stylists have created a hairstyle inspired by one of the sports represented in the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. In the how-tos below learn how to re-create these Figure skating and Speedskating styles created by Canadian Wella Hairdresser Fay Linksman.
“Figure skating and speedskating – two of my favorite winter sports which have inspired my two styles,” says Fay Linsman. “For one, the structured elegance of a figure skater and for the other a fast, adrenalin-fueled speedskater.”
Music’s biggest night celebrated the 56th Grammy Awards and stars showed off their “gotta get it” hair styles!

GET THE LOOK:
If your client has curly hair:
STEP 1: Create a middle part when wet.
STEP 2: Apply a curl enhancing cream throughout from roots to ends.
STEP 3: Air dry or lightly dry using a diffuser on low speed and low heat from underneath so as not to create volume at the roots.
STEP 4: Shake out with fingers.
If your client has straight or wavy hair:
STEP 1: Use a medium-sized curling iron to re-create this look.
STEP 2: Prep hair by misting a light hairspray all over to create texture to the hair.
STEP 3: Create a middle side part and using the curling iron vertically and wind small sections all over making sure to keep the top on the flatter side.
This is the perfect time to begin planning steps to maximize your talent. Because of technology and globalization, opportunities for beauty professionals are more diverse than years past. Beauty professionals are choosing to continue their education by pursuing college degrees and enrolling in business certificate programs to support their entrepreneurial ventures and aspirations. Also, high school students who chose the traditional 4-year college route are graduating with degrees, yet choosing to reenroll in school to follow a career within the beauty industry.
We all learn in beauty school that professionals can determine their salary. I remember my cosmetology instructor telling our class in her raspy demonstrative tone, “It’s up to you; don’t depend on anyone else! Give yourself a raise!”
This statement is true, but takes hard work and tenacity. A career move up the beauty industry ladder requires continued education. Expose yourself by exploring the various types of beauty career options. There are 8 beauty career genres: entrepreneurial, freelance, educational, salon and spa, marketing, sales, creative, and trend.
