If you’re looking for help on wearing that so hard to do naturally wavy hair style that looks like it should be easy, we’ve got you covered. Here we will go over how to achieve this spring hair trend that gives you a hair style without having to worry about the rain or humidity that spring tends to bring.

Real talk time, ladies.  Spring is in the air, and frizz is in the hair. 

Sure, most of us love the smell of flowers, trees, and grass; everything lightens and brightens up!  Sadly, along with nature’s beauty comes April Showers!  Ugh, and ain’t nobody got time for that! Especially for girls who deal with curls and frizz!  We spend what feels like forever smoothing out our hair – which, let’s face it, never really gets smooth – only to walk outside and *POOF.* We get to wherever we need to go, do a hair and lipstick check, only to find Mufasa staring back at us!  The struggle is real, y’all. Well, my beautiful curly-haired gals and pals, let me share a little secret with you: STOP SMOOTHING YOUR HAIR!

Dare I wear my hair curly, we ask ourselves? 

That’s a double-dog-dare! Not only will you save time and the hassle of sore arms from round brushing, you will also learn to embrace that beautiful bouncy, curly mane.  I’m here to share my step-by-step styling secrets when it comes to beautiful, natural curly hair.  

It all begins with the suds.  Make sure to use an anti-frizz, hydrating, or curl- enhancing shampoo and conditioner.  My personal favorite is the Arrojo American WAVE ReHab Shampoo and Submerge Conditioner. These products are filled with Lemon Bark, which vitalizes Vitamin E and provides perfect moisture balance and Sweet Almond Oil to make hair shiny and luscious. 


“Time to make waves and curls cascade with confidence 

-Rosa Marrufo, Dallas Hair Stylist

My super curly-haired peeps out there, you should get a wide tooth comb and keep it in your shower to comb out your hair.  I don’t have super curly hair, but I still definitely do this.  It’s not totally necessary but it helps!  How, you ask? You wrap untangled, coiled curls into a towel which helps set the curl in, avoiding stretching out the curl.   You should not keep your hair wrapped in a towel for more than 3-5 minutes, because hair starts to dry quickly, and the frizz will begin to reveal its ugly face.  

Once you unwrap your hair, tilt your head to each side, shaking it in between your fingers, lifting your hair off your scalp. This also helps avoid hair falling flat and sticking to the scalp.  Next, grab pieces of hair from around your face and randomly throughout your hair, wrap them around your finger (working with your natural curl), and let them go.  Once you have created these finger curls throughout your hair, SCRUNCH like your life/hair depends on it.

That’s it! LOL, J/K!  Our hair should still be pretty wet right now, not dripping wet, but more wet than dry.  Here is where we are going to apply our products and use our tools.  Start with products – again my personal favorite these days is the American WAVE line, their Structure Styling Cream cocktailed with Elixir Defrizzing Gel and for that instant oomph you want at the end, you will need to get your hands on Glint Texture & Shine Spray.  For your tools you will need a blow dryer, a diffuser (yes you need it) and a 1” curling iron.  

Boom – we have them all?  Perfect, take your Structure and Elixir and mix them together (I would start off with a nickel size amount of each and mix up more if needed.  You want to avoid putting all your product in one spot, so work with a little product at a time, one a section at a time.  I like to tilt my head from side to side, then back, then flip my head over and scrunch away!

BREAK TIME

Literally.  Step away from your hair, do your makeup, get your outfit ready, shoot, get your kids ready.  Allow your hair to air dry for about 10 minutes (if you have the time), come back, grab your dryer and diffuse your hair in the same manner that you scrunched in your product.  Now I’m just going to keep it real, your hair may not be 100% dry, nor do you really want it to be.  Dryness takes out moisture which then causes static and frizz, so don’t over dry it.  

Once you’ve dried it about 85-90%, flip your hair back over and scrunch away to allow the bounciness to come through.  Set your part in, grab your curling iron and work on hair that needs finessing by wrapping it around the curling iron, using it as a wand.  I recommend working with the natural direction of the curl.  Glint it up to add that last tousled look to a beautiful curly mane. Have yourself a fabulous hair day! 

See – it’s not so hard! It may sound complicated, but the reality is you must set yourself and your curls up for success; otherwise, you will be all frizzed out and have the hair to match.

Hey guys! Thinking about Fall Hair Trends?  I wanted to share some of my favorite haircuts, colors, and styles I hope to see trending. 

Oh, and by the way, this is my first blog so let me know what you think!

First Up: Blunt Bobs

Blunt Bobs make your hair look healthier, stronger, and thicker! This cut gives your style a ton of texture and can look good on pretty much anyone. Here are a few other blunt bobs I am loving right now.

I love it straight, or wavy! There are so many style options with this cut, which is why I can see people wanting this hair style.


Fall Favorite: Fringe or Bangs

Bangs are always a fall trend, now that it is finally starting to cool down this is the perfect time to wear your hair down and get bangs!

 

With fringe or bangs, you can make a major style change, or an accent to your haircut. They can frame your face very well and compliment many different hair styles and face shapes.


Pops of Color

I am absolutely in love with the whole unicorn look that has been trending lately. If you want to come out of your comfort zone and show your personality through your hair, this is the perfect trend to follow.


Long Layers | Always on Trend

Long layers are always a go to haircut, in my opinion they look good on anyone with longer hair. They add character and movement to your style while it also livens up the haircut as well.

Layers frame the face and look so lovely after styling. Or they can help take some weight if your hair is naturally thick. Either way, layers can be as dramatic or subtle as you want which is why I love some of these looks from instagram.


Perfectly Straight

Beachy curls have been the trend for the last couple of years, but sometimes its just nice to have a straight hair day.

Pull out the oils and really take time to nourish and moisturize your hair before you put the straight iron to it. I always recommend using quality hair products to keep your hair from looking dry and damaged.

 

Dallas Blonde Hair Salon

Working behind the chair as a stylist, I’ve learned many people do not know how to care for their blonde hair. In this blog I’m going to go over all the details on how to take care of your locks so that you have long lasting, beautiful blonde hair.

 

Also let me know if you have any other ideas, I’d love to see them! If you are looking for a blonde specialist in Dallas, I would love opportunity to make your hair dreams come true!

Haircare & Products

 

Let’s be honest, lightening your hair means you need to take care of it. Here are my go to product recommendations to keep your color looking better, but also maintaining the best health of your hair.

Purple Shampoo & Conditioner

Every blonde needs purple shampoo/conditioner. Using the right purple shampoo will keep your blonde vibrant and from turning yellow. However, overdoing it can either dull your blonde or turn it purple.

 

A good rule to follow would be to use it every other time you shampoo. My go to purple shampoo and conditioner is the Artego Shiny Silver shampoo and Blueberry mask. It refreshes blonde hair to the perfect color! Don’t worry, it’s not too purple or ashy!

Color Safe & Moisturizing Shampoo

A lot of shampoos still have sulfates and other things that can strip your color and keep it from lasting as long. It’s so so important to invest in your hair and use quality products for your own specific needs. Some blondes need moisture, some need repair to help strengthen your hair.

 

My best advice is to ask your stylist to recommend a sulfate free shampoo that suits your personal haircare needs. One of my favorites for blondes is the Alterna Caviar Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. It’s great!

The Perfect Brush: Framar Detangling Brush

It’s so important to use a soft bristle brush no matter the color of your hair. However, the Framar Detangling brush has flexible bristles that don’t tug on your hair which in turn prevents breakage. I personally don’t use any other brush!

 

Stylist tip: is to apply a deep conditioning treatment and brush it through using your wet brush. Makes for soft, tangle free hair.

Pool Time

Pools typically have harsh chemicals that can dry your hair out and turn it green. To prevent both of those happening, apply a leave in conditioner on dry hair to protect it or simply secure your hair in a loose braid or top knot. My go to product cocktail for the pool is the Alterna Caviar Bond Repair leave in conditioner paired with the Anti Frizz Nourishing oil.

Styling Without Damage

When styling it’s so important to use a heat protectant and low heat. Remember: you’re blonde now, so you have to take care of your hair.

A good temperature to use your hot tools, like your flat iron or curling iron/wand, is 300-350 degrees. Any higher and you’re basically cooking your hair.

 

Another tip is to find a heat protectant that covers more than the temperature of heat you will be using. A really great one with everything I mentioned is the Alterna Caviar Bond Repair heat protectant.

 

Think of it like this: you wouldn’t grab a hot pan out of the stove without a glove. A heat protectant is a layer of protection on your strands when you use a hot blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron or wand.

Consistency is key!

It’s so important to be consistent with a stylist to work towards a hair goal. Good hair doesn’t happen in one appointment, it takes time and a plan.

 

Trying to achieve a major transformation in one appointment is unrealistic, and it really can damage your hair. Staying consistent with one stylist will help you reach your hair goals.

Have Realistic Expectations

Let‘s talk about changing your hair and the expectations to have when doing so:

 

You can most definitely make changes, however going from blonde to brown and back to blonde every other appointment is damaging to your hair.

 

Think of it like this: you only have one head of hair, and going back and forth between colors affects the integrity of your hair. When it comes to expectations of being blonde you have to be okay with the phases of doing so.

 

Big hair changes happen over time and multiple appointments. There will definitely experience warm phases from dark brunette to a pale light blonde. Patience, sticking to a stylist, and trusting the process is the key!
