Welcome to Avant Gardes Blog!

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!

Bride important recommendation

Wash your hair the day before the wedding and do not blow dry your hair too straight to have a better stay for your  big sunday.

The Hair trial is absolutely necessary. An up do is not an everyday hair style, in most of the case you need to try several styles to know which one will be yours. On your wedding day you are under stress and have a lot of last minute details to take care of, it is not a

good day to decide about your hair style or makeup style

When you come with a picture that you find on the internet or in a Bridal Magazine, always have a plan B to give us a chance to help you and offer you another option… (for example, model up dos look more defined on blond hair, her hair texture & hair abundance

etc may be different)

How to wake up with an awesome hairstyle , tips from Your Hair salon in Miami

Your Hair Salon in Miami is giving you a few tips to wake up with awesome hair !

 

Wavy hair

Waking up to good hair without any effort on your part the night before is like accidentally getting the half off on current-season boots at Barney’s—rare, precious and best accepted without question. Waking up to great hair every day with only slightly more intention than none? Totally possible. Our hair stylists in Avant-Garde-Salon and spa share with you  the overnight hairstyles to learn for the best results in the morning

Beach waves

To preserve a bouncy blowout: To maintain the volume of your blowout and avoid any creases, use a soft, foam styling donut (like the Wrap Up) or large, two-inch bobby pins to secure your hair in a loose, high top knot. To wake up to big waves, wrap smooth, almost-dry hair into two donut buns on either side.

 

 

 

Wavy hair

 

 

To wake up with smooth, straight hair: Starting behind the ear, wrap all your hair in one direction around the head to create a flat, smooth surface and secure with large bobby pins where needed. Then tie a silk scarf tightly around your head to keep your hair in place all night.

 

imageTo wake up with beachy, surfer girl waves: Make two French braids on either side of your head. Keep them as loose as possible and braid as far down to the ends as you can to avoid kinks and frizz. For a slightly less textured effect, run a flexible mousse through your hair, then twist medium sections away from your face into five to six buns and secure with bobby pins. You’ll have natural, Gisele waves when you remove the pins in the morning.

To avoid wild bangs: Whether it’s combing and loosely blow-drying or securing them down and to the side with a tissue and a duckbill clip, bangs need to be fixed immediately after washing or they’re hopeless. Run a light-hold matte pomade down the length with a bristle brush for quick taming in the morning.

To deep condition overnight: Start by washing your hair and focusing on the scalp. Using warm water will open up the cuticle and allow the moisturizers to seep into the cortex of each hair strand. Then apply the deep conditioner with a wide-toothed comb to ensure even application. Wrap your hair in saran wrap to keep your sheets clean and your hair together. In the morning, do a cool rinse to lock in the moisturizing ingredients.

Through Great Lengths three technologies, heat, ultrasounds and Multisonic, each strand is perfectly bonded to your hair.

Colors, all types of colors

Great Lengths offers a wide range of colors. More than 50 tonalities of natural colors, toned colors, crazy colored strands with a range of tonalities that go from light to dark.Fuchsia, yellow, turquoise and violet are just a few of the variations we offer. You may also choose a pastel color. Colors such as peach, pink, blue and indigo create a very delicate effect.Almost all our colors are created using a special preparation.

 

David Gold

In 1992 David Gold founded Great Lengths International and since then has created the parameters in his field with new procedures and techniques.David Gold, the inventor of Great Lengths extensions, began his career in the textile field. At the end of 1991 he met a hairdresser that would paste strands of hair to clients’ real hair. This technique however did not result being completely satisfying and David decided to find a solution.
He discovered, on the basis of molecular hair structure,  that it was possible to fix the bonding with a polymer similar to keratin that allowed tying strands to natural hair perfectly using an ultrasound machine. The hair quality is optimized by using Indian hair from Temples. The technique has been  improved in the last years.
Thousands of satisfied clients wear our extensions for thickening or for just reviving their hairstyles with special effects.

 

 

DOUBLE DRAWN

One of Great Lengths’ distinct signs of quality is Double Drawn, when each hair in the bond has the same length.

Handwork and craftsmanship

During the refining process in Rome, more than 270 experts manage the extensions but in the end the strands are bonded with a machine.

Indian Hair

Only Indian hair adapts perfectly for high quality extensions. The structure is similar to European hair and is offered by women in the Indian temples as an offer to the gods. Great Lengths buys the unprocessed hair at the official public auction.  Almost one third of the income finances the infrastructures in these regions.

 

Long lasting growth

Patience is virtuous! Since Great Lengths uses only real, naturally grown Indian hair and considering that hair grows about one centimeter a month, it takes about five years to have the necessary length for a  fabulous hair extension.

Partner salons

By partnering with Great Lengths, salon owners and qualified hairdressers benefit from a proven, profitable business service that helps achieve the reality of transforming client’s hair beyond their expectations.Only certified stylists and salons are allowed to perform Great Lengths service.To start your educational journey and take the first step to increasing your salon profits or if you are interested in a free consultation, contact the Great Lengths distributor in your country and ask for assistance.

Real Hair

Great Lengths sources only 100% untreated Indian temple hair.
This is the finest source of virgin hair available in the marketplace that is most compatible with Caucasian and European hair textures.

Remi hair

Remi hair means that the hair cuticles are facing the same direction enabling the hair extensions not to tangle.

Time

Important time factors for extensions: The time it takes to add in the extensions varies depending on the application system and strands length but usually it lasts between one and four hours.
The extension hair is then removed after six months at the latest, as the natural hair has grown and the points of connection have become visible.

USA

US-stars like Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez set trends with their enthusiasm for extensions like other celebrities with extensions.

World market leader

43 distribution centers, which ship up to 650.000 strands to over 30.000 salons worldwide every week.For years Great Lengths is considered as the world’s leader in hair extensions and is now about to conquer the tape market.

Beauty tips : How to finger wave from Avant-garde salon and spa Miami

 

What You Need

curling iron

mousse or dry shampoo 

Avant-garde suggestion: powder bluff from Kerastase

hairspray shine spray or serum 

Avant-garde suggestion : glimmer shine spay from Moroccanoil

big curl iron

Finger Wave How-To

Part One: The Three-Step, Basic Pin-Curl Technique

This is the essential technique used to create pin curls, which will give you a full head of finger waves. Learn this core set of steps, and then continue to part two to set your whole ‘do.

1: Grab a 1-inch section of hair and spray lightly with hairspray.

 

2: Wrap the strand around your curling iron starting from the root all the way to the tip. Hold for about 7 seconds (a little longer for coarse hair, a little shorter for finer hair).

 

3: Release hair from the curling iron. Starting from the tip, wrap the strand around two fingers until the curl is near the scalp. Secure with a clip or pin. Place the clip at the base of the curl, right against the scalp, rather than on the outer edge of the pin curl. This helps prevent creases where you don’t want them. Leave pin curls to set.

once you’ve mastered this set of moves, you have all the technique necessary to make the best finger wave ‘do! Now let’s get started!

a sample of long hair on long hair

Finger-Waves

 

Part Two: Sectioning and Setting the Full Head

1: Start with dry hair. If your hair is fine, prep with dry shampoo or mousse, especially around the roots.

 

2: Section hair horizontally, starting at the bottom and working your way to the top and moving from back to front. How many sections you ultimately use depends on the thickness of the hair. Leave one semi-circular section at the crown of the head—you can clip it out of the way until later.

 

3: Starting with the bottom section, take a strand of hair and curl using the techniques above (spray, curl, pin). Work across the head until all the hair in that section is in curls. Once complete, move to the next section of hair, working your way across, creating curls as you go. Move toward the front of the head until all hair is pinned. For the pieces that frame the face, wrap hair outward, away from the face when curling.

 

4: Once you reach the top section that you clipped out of the way earlier, divide horizontally into pieces that are roughly 1-inch thick. Pin-curl each piece from front to back, to help create volume at the crown. Continue until you’ve curled and clipped the entire section.

 

5: Once all of your hair is up in pin curls, hit the entire head with hairspray.

 

6: Then, starting at the back of the head, take curls down section by section. At this point, you can apply a few dabs of shine spray or serum to add polish. As you work, rake through curls lightly with your fingers, spritz with hairspray, and go over gently with a flat paddle brush. For volume, back-comb each section at the roots.

 

7: When all of your hair is out, back-comb the crown, and finish with a final pass of hairspray.

Keratin Bonded Extensions

 

 

 

 

There are several methods and techniques for applying Hair Extensions that vary depending on your lifestyle and interests.

– Temporary clip-in extensions are ideal for an event or special occasion.  Maybe you have your wedding or prom soon approaching?  Clip-in extensions will help you achieve a fashion-forward look. Here at Avant-Garde, our clip-in extensions are custom made and individualized per client.  The beauty of this service is that the extensions are yours to keep and reapply as you wish.

– If you’re looking for a longer-lasting look, we suggest trying our tape strip hair extensions.  These extensions last until your next shampoo and are a great way to see how you would enjoy a more permanent solution for extensions.

– A third alternative is sew-in extensions, which are useful when desiring a longer look, lasting for several months.  Sew-in extensions are ideal for volume and fullness.

– Lastly, when you’re ready to take the next step towards longer natural looking hair, consider AG’s Keratin bonded extensions.  These bonded extensions last for about four to six months and require little maintenance.

Now that you’ve gotten more familiar with your options, consider what suits you best and book your extension application here at AG!
