Welcome to Avant Garde’s blog. This tool will engage you, educate you, and most importantly inspire you. Our journey through the world of beauty will begin with a topic which would seem like a basic right but is much harder to achieve. We should have the right to express ourselves and be who we are. I’m happy to say that it’s becoming a trend. Fashion colors are being used as tools to creating works of art, and the canvases are just as bold and beautiful. When taking the dive into fashion colored hair, your making a statement and declaring your own independence. It has become it’s own world of mermaids (and mermans!): bright and vibrant or soft and elegant. There is no limit to what these hair artists will create; However, the process to get you there requires a knowledgeable and skilled stylist. This is what you will find at Avant Garde. Passion is what moves us forward and hair is our gateway to expression. The French word Avant Garde translates to ‘bringing the trend.’ We take pride in our word, and in our work. Hope you will join me again next week and see you soon at Avant Garde!
Get ready for the beach ladies!
At Avant-Garde Salon and Spa the hair specialists are always working on the latest trends for local clientele and celebrities. One of this years latest trends is tortoiseshell hair. Tortoiseshell colored hair is sometimes referred to as escaille which incorporates hair color variations of chocolate, blondes and caramels that come together to form a perfect combination of layered hair colors.
By combining these warm colors together, it gives hair a new dimension and depth. Women who already have brown and/or brunette hair can incorporate this hair style with little maintenance after as it blends well with their existing hair roots. As hair continues to grow, this hair color technique works well in keeping an ombre look and feel.

What is right and what is wrong about hair coloring
Can we choose whatever color we want?
Wrong. The choice of the hair color has to be done according to your natural Hair color. If the hair coloration is lighter for more than 5 tones one simple coloring won’t be enough to achieve the results we want. We would need to do a bleaching remover and then the coloration.
Does the hair coloring damage the hair?
Right and wrong. You hair stylist should always proceed to do a hair diagnostic about the nature of your hair and the condition to offer you the color that will be the most adaptive to your case. A color that is going to be realized in the same tone of your natural hair or just to add a reflection or just going to be two toned lighting will not damage the hair. Because today also the new product formulation, they add oil inside and always treatment inside the color by itself. The coloration makes the hair more sensitive as soon as you in a lightning technique. If it’s true that the hair even when it is natural needs treatment as soon as you start to manipulate the follicles of the hair in an important way the treatment is necessary, otherwise you lose the shine that you expect from your hair coloring. And then, you don’t get the reflection that you were looking for.
Is it important to use specific treatment for hair color?
Right. The color of the hair needs a close protection. Colored hair is more sensitive to aggression because it is fragile because of the action of the color product that opens the cuticle that we need to open for the pigment of the color. The shampoo and treatment specific for color treated hair fill up and close the cuticle of the hair and by this it protects durability for a long time the shine and vibrancy of the color reflection.
Never color your hair before going under the sun?
Wrong. If in reasonable dose the sun is not bad for the hair, on the contrary it gives a natural reflect and helps with the vitamin D synthesis it makes hair grow fast. When you use too much sun then the sun can become your hairs enemy in that case you need to protect your hair the same way you protect your skin by using hair solar product . This will avoid that you have to cut your hair at the return of your vacation. On colored hair your hair is already more sensitive by the coloration ingredient and the damage of the sun if you don’t do anything it will be an increase. This is one more reason to do something before and after you go into the sun. What is very important is to rinse your hair after you swim systematically with regular water, dry your hair as much as possible with the towel and apply right after a sun protection on your hair. When the sun is very strong you should wear a hat that is going to also protect your color and your scalp against sunburn.
Is it important to change your eyebrow color and make-up for good results with your color?
Right and wrong. Everything depends in the difference between your natural color and the hair color you will hair after hair coloring. If it is a light difference just a few tones you do not need to dye your eyebrows, on the contrary if the change is important you need to adapt your eyebrow or with waxing to make your eyebrow thinner or with the coloration. Also this theory has to be case by case. It is important also to reflect your makeup for more harmony to match with your hair coloring style.

these home maintenance advice will help you to keep your hair extensions in good condition for thoughout their life Application.
- Do not shampoo for two days after your Great Lengths Hair Extensions application.Avant-Garde Salon and spa Hair recommends that you return to your Hair Salon Greatlengths certified , approximately two weeks after your Hair extensions application. This follow-up visit allows your Stylist to inspect the application to ensure that your Hair Extesions result are performing as expected.
- When shampooing, your Hair Extensions always wash your hair with your head back, not tilted forward. Never dry your hair Extensions with a scrubbing action, instead wrap a towel to absorb the excess moisture. When allowing your hair to “air dry,” Avant-Garde salon And spa Miami, recommends that the attachment sites be dried with a blow dryer to prevent the bonds from remaining wet for an extended period of time
- To prevent premature bond breakdown always saturate your hair with water prior to swimming, exercising, using a sauna or any activity that creates moisture in your hair for an extended period of time. Immediately after such activities, shampoo thoroughly, condition, and blow-dry the attachment sites (bonds).of your hair extensions .
- Brush your Hair extensions three times a day with the recommended with a brush adapted for your hair extensions. Unlike many extension systems, regular and thorough brushing is recommended for Great Lengths extensions. Beginning at the nape, brush row by row, scalp to ends. Always pull your hair extensions into a softly held ponytail while sleeping or any activity that has your hair blowing in the wind. These important brushing and steps will prevent tangling at the attachment sites.
- Styling options for your etensions are virtually limitless. However, there are a few precautions you will want to take. Blow-drying and use of curling irons, flat irons and hot rollers may be used but heat must be kept at an adequate distance for 1.5 inches from the attachment site (bond).
- Some extension loss is normal throughout the life of your Hair extensions application. The average person experiences natural hair loss of 100 to 150 hairs a day. A full- head of hair extensions application covers approximately one-third of the head. After some time you can expect to see a small quantity of your hair that has shed naturally yet is still attached to the bond. This is normal and should not be interpreted as hair that has been pulled out of the scalp by the extensions. Daily brushing as instructed above will void those loose hairs from tangling or matting at the attachment site.
