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.

“This season is all about rose-gold locks,” according to our Best  hair colorist specialists in Avant-Garde salon and spa Miami  as you can see on Jessica Chastain.

Platinum is still having its moment, but for dark blondes and light to medium brunettes who don’t want to commit to the maintenance it requires, try wheat blonde. It’s brighter and more buttery than dirty blonde with hints of light brown color peeking out at the roots or underneath. Maintenance level: medium.

Bronze

Brunettes seeking an instant face brightener should ask their colorist for bronze and golden highlights placed on the mid-shaft to the ends of their hair, says Goodwin. “It’s the perfect way to lighten your color and still look natural,” says Cunningham. Jessica Biel nails the look. Maintenance level: medium.

Dark highlight
All-over dark hair color can be severe; breaking it up with subtle chocolate highlights brightens it up and adds gorgeous dimension. The best part? Upkeep is minimal, since the highlights look most natural when they start mid-shaft and frame the face. Lily Aldridge is a perfect example of the trend.

Avant-garde salon and spa in Miami answers your questions


How do I recognize quality extensions?

You will recognize quality extensions when they are not easily distinguishable from your own hair and when the bonding is very thin and almost invisible.Can the strands be removed and can I remove them myself?
Removal of the Great Lengths strands is relatively easy. Your hairdresser will apply a special gel on the bonds removing them with a tool. What usually creates a challenge is matting. Matting is due to non proper or careless maintenance.
Never remove your hair extensions yourself. Always return to the salon to have your hair extensions professionally removed. Your stylist in Avant-Garde salon and spa Miami, has been trained to remove the hair extensions using only Great Lengths removal solution.How are the strands attached to the natural hair?
Great Lengths patented  protein polymer bond ensures a quick and simple application either with heat or ultrasound system. Bonds are made from synthetic keratin mimicking the molecular structure of natural keratin found in human hair and skin and maintaining a pH value of 5.5 to be compatible with your hair, scalp and skin.How long do extensions last?
Quality extensions may last up to about 6 months. This depends on how fast your hair grows. If your hair grows quickly they may last less and vice versa.
We recommend removal every 4 to 6 months, depending upon the type of application performed (i.e.lengthening, volumzing, etc), the state/condition of the natural hair, and their lifestyle.
Must I always wear the same hairstyle?
Great Lengths hair has a natural wavy effect and for most clients this is an advantage because they can be easily dried and styled. Any style, color or cut is possible.

The key to a successful, damage free application lies in the details of the application. There is no “cookie cutter”, “one size fits all” application technique, as each client has different hair conditions and desired results that must be considered.

French Balayage in Avant Garde Salon and Spa, Miami, Fl.

What is Balayage?

 

The Balayage is a French technique of coloring the hair created to give dimension and depth to the hair,

strands of hair strategically distributed create depth,dimension and enhance light and movement of the hair.
strands of hair strategically distributed create depth,dimension and enhance light and movement of the hair.

 

What does the word Balayage mean?

 

The word Balayage in French means brushwork and thus is referred to this technique as it works the strand of hair while suspended and supported on a pallet wick, then the enlightener is deposited on the hair with a slip of the brush.

 

What is the effect created in the Balayage hair?

 

Contrasting with the wicks processed with aluminum foil, the balayage does  not have a repetitive  pattern or defined lines, so it is advisable when looking to give dimension, depth and a natural sunny effect in which the wicks are blurred by merging with the base color.

 

What is the level of maintenance that the Balayage requires?

 

The Balayage is a technique with a relatively low maintenance, whereas leaves no barrier between the processed hair and new growth, it is today one of the most convenient color options for women as it is not necessary to do a touch-up at six weeks but can be extended to eight or more and also play with a shampoo color between process and process to revive them and make them look fresh again.

 

Balayage is recommended for all hair types?

 

The balayage always looks better in natural and long hair, because the hair takes more transparency when processed, due to the absence of a previous artificial pigment  the movement can create a large beach style and relaxed waves. Anyway, having a pre-existing color is not always a determining factor, it can also achieve very good results in hair that has been colored professionally no darker than a level five.

 

 

Is it compatible with other Balayage coloring techniques?

 

Given the characteristics of the effect that the Balayage creates on the hair, it is ideal for balancing a process of ” Ombre ” because it helps distribute the brightness in areas such as the face frame and the crown, that otherwise would not be  possible to do so only with the technique of ” Ombre ” as it only works on the bottom of the hair.  If we pay attention, at present, most of the top models and celebrities such as Gisele Bundchen and Jessica Biel are the image of a beautiful trend that is here to stay.

Transforma tu look y luce como una reina

La belleza está en tus manos

Cortesía: Mauricio Burgos – www.avantgardesalonandspa.com

El maquillista Mauricio Burgos hace parte del ‘Team’ de Nuestra Belleza Latina 2012, por eso quisimos preguntarle que podemos hacer para tener un maquillaje que llame tanto la atención como el de las participantes cada domingo en las galas.

El experto, quien ha trabajado en varios certamenes de belleza, nos reveló el secreto. Ahora sigue los pasos, encuentra tu look y sácale partido a tus rasgos.

Primer El primer tiene como tarea preparar la piel para la base, esto ayuda a que se empareje el color, y de textura lisa al rostro, además aporta algunos humectantes importantes para  todo tipo de piel.

La base La base de maquillaje cumple la función de emparejar el color de la piel y disimular alguna imperfección. De ahí su importancia. Cada piel tiene su tipo de base. Para las pieles normales, se deben utilizar bases líquidas, que puedan cubrir la cara formando una fina capa. Para las pieles propensas a tener acné, son mejores las bases cremosas o en barra, que sirven para emparejar el relieve que producen estas imperfecciones. Lo más importante es que la base siempre debe respetar el color de tu piel, nuncá más oscura o más clara. La mirada Generalmente el maquillaje busca resaltar los ojos. La elección entre un maquillaje más o menos suave dependerá si la salida es de día o de noche. También es muy importante tener en cuenta la forma de ojos de cada persona. Por ejemplo, quienes tienen párpados caídos deberán delinearse con sombras profundizando sobre los extremos para lograr el efecto de elevarlos. En cambio, para agrandarlos sólo se necesita un prolijo delineado, sombras claras y mucho rímel.

Para las mujeres que tienen ojos claros, lo mejor es utilizar colores en la gama de violetas y azules. En cambio, los ojos oscuros se pueden resaltar con colores naranjas, marrones y cálidos. Como alternativa, el uso de pestañas postizas da un toque muy expresivo a la mirada, solo inténtalo y disfruta de los resultados. La boca La boca es importantísima en un buen maquillaje. Algunas mujeres cometen el error de no pintarse los labios -ni siquiera con brillo-, ya sea porque simplemente no les gusta o porque el color “dura poco”. Para este segundo problema existe una solución: primero delinear, luego aplicar el rouge con pincel, polvo volátil y volver a pintar. Esto prolongará la duración. El delineado es muy bueno para labios finos, siempre hecho con cuidado, ya que si se los delinea mucho, los labios quedan artificiales. El toque final El uso de rubor, moderadamente, es un exquisito complemento del maquillaje. Ayuda a corregir y ocultar defectos y por eso hay que tener en cuenta una regla básica: lo oscuro disimula. Las mujeres que tengan rostros alargados deberán hacer hincapié en la zona del mentón y del cuello. Y las que tengan frente ancha pueden disimularla aplicando rubor sobre la parte superior, casi en el nacimiento del pelo, para achicarla.

Truquitos para no olvidar Limpiar bien la cara antes de empezar el proceso del maquillaje. Humectarla para que el maquillaje no se vea acartonado. Ocultar las ojeras con un corrector. Mejor menos que más, los excesos marcan aún más los defectos. Siempre emparejar la base con una esponja húmeda. Aplicar la base del mismo color que la piel. Aplicar el polvo con una brocha grande. Los ojos se pueden resaltar usando una base de color natural en todo el párpado y delineando con un pincel fino. Las sombras más oscuras te ayudan a marcar la profundidad. Siempre usa rímel en las pestañas.
