Maintaining your hair extensions !

                     

Recommendations for maintaining your Keratin Hair Extensions by stylist Edward from Avant-Garde Salon and Spa Miami

Do you have extensions? Well here are a few tips to maintain the longest lasting extensions.

Daily Care

Brush hair from scalp to ends at least 2 times a day, once in the morning or before washing and once in the evening before bed.

Washing your hair

Do not shampoo your hair for at least 48 hours after your extensions have been applied to allow the bond to set. Shampoo and condition your hair as you normally would, but try to avoid using too much conditioner at the bonding points. Cold water is key. Avoid warm/hot water.

Do not comb between the scalp and the bond. On a regular basis, separate the bonds with your fingers to prevent matting

Drying your hair

Always dry your hair thoroughly, starting at the bond, as it is at its most vulnerable when wet

Do not towel dry the hair with a scrubbing motion. Instead, use a blotting motion and wrap the hair in a towel to remove excess moisture

Always blow dry your hair on a cool/warm temperature

Brushing

Great Lengths flat headed, soft bristle brushes are the most suitable for brushing your hair. With small sections of hair gently brush from the bonds to the ends of the hair

Styling and finishing

Styling products such as Pearl Gloss Styler can only be applied to the lengths and ends of your hair and not the bond itself

The Great Lengths round brush can be used for blow drying

Straighteners, tongs and heated rollers can be used; however they must be kept away from the bond area

Sleeping

We recommend you tie your hair in a loose pony tail or braid to prevent tangling while sleeping

Exercise and your lifestyle

Extensions suit most lifestyles, however be mindful in the following circumstances which may affect the lifespan of your bonds, or in fact, cause them to breakdown:

Regular swimming, particularly in sea water and chlorinated water

Regular sauna or steam room use

Excessive aerobic activity

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!

Hair Trends 2012

Short, long, blonde, black, brown or red yet. This year the trend up to now has been all blond color variations. At the Avant-Garde Salon & Spa in Coral Gables, city beautiful of Miami, Florida we are seeing couple of trends. Ombré remains very big among our elite clientele and more recently we are seeing a lot lot of red tone color. Christine our salon’s owner is sporting a new sangria shade and only get compliments from everyone.

We foresee changes for coming year, because the hair is dark again. Further highlights are striking and accessories such as long hair extensions for beautiful color accents are in fashion. This is reflected in the trend in hair color.

In 2012, women are wearing red on their HEAD! Already, we see that color increases with the stars in Hollywood. Our team of AG stylists who works for Univision on shows like Sal y Pimiento and Nuestra Belleza Latina 2012 are leading the movement.

Not everyone dare to try. Anyone who is unsure should first start with a warm brown according to Avant-Garde nationally renowned colorist Elena. So you can slowly get used to the new hair color. Especially effective is the red color on blonde hair, because they shine in different shades of color so that there is an interesting play of colors and gives the hair color looks very natural.

Your new hair color should match your skin and especially your eyes. The hair color red is definitely not for everyone! So you should not insist on bending and breaking on a redhead. If red does not fit, there is no problem, with a chocolate brown in different shades of one of the most fashionable hair colors for the year 2012.  By striking highlights, you can bring pep to your hairstyle; hair color is not so boring. Uniform dark hair makes the complexion look pale, but with striking highlights, you can counteract this. Give our salon a call and ask for more information about our hair extensions or feel free to stop in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced stylists. We’re located at 155 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Our zip code is 33134 and our telephone number is (305) 442-8136.
