It’s the beginning of the year. A fresh start and you have resolutions for everything! Spend less money, go to the gym more, call your mom more frequently, walk the dog more than once a day. Why stop there?! 

 

Why not add: More frequent visits to the salon to your list, only let the pros color your hair and style it more often so you look as good on the outside as you now feel on the inside. Thank you LA Fitness, we will keep coming for a few more months until we decide we like the view from the couch better. 

 

Styling your hair more often doesn’t mean you have to take hours and hours in the bathroom each morning. We have a few simple styles and hair tips that will get you out the door fast and looking fab for the new you! 

 

Get Routine Root Touch Ups - Whether you need to cover those grays or you opt for a color nature didn’t intend, getting your roots touched up will instantaneously accentuate your face shape and perk up your mood! It is best to visit the salon every 3-4 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. Since color can be damaging to your locks we suggest asking your stylist to add amika Virgin to your formula to ensure your hair is protected and revitalized leaving it in its softest possible state! 

Get Those Ends Trimmed! Sure, you may think your hair feels long, but uneven ends will cause your hair to break eventually leading to shorter strands. To combat length loss invest in a solid leave in, apply it once you get out of the shower to protect and prepare.
