You haven’t washed your hair in the right way In order to receive a blow out that lasts for several days, your hair needs to be extremely clean. By that, we mean shampooing twice; the first time shampooing you are getting rid of any loose dirt and/or old product in which the shampoo will not produce much lather; the second time will produce much more lather because you are starting with a cleaner scalp. Keep in mind to massage your hair at the roots to give your scalp that extra boost it needs. You shower without a shower cap Showers are great, but moisture and humidity are not when you want to extend the life of your blowout. Tuck all of your hair into a terry cloth-lined shower cap (or any material cap should work) before showering and your blowout will stay preserved once you get out. You go to sleep with your hair down To prevent losing the volume you fought so badly for, put your hair upside down and gather your hair into a loose bun on top of your head before going to sleep. When you wake up the next day, brush your hair gently and add some product to it, which reminds me- speaking of products. You are using the wrong products So you managed to achieve that amazing hairstyle you’ve always dreamt of. Now what? A good finishing spray with the right amount of texture will make your style look amazing for days. Styling should be easy and with the right hair products, with the right amount, and yes a little bit of dedicated time, you can get the results you wish for. You’re using the wrong brush If you’re looking for a voluminous, bouncy and glamorous look, a round brush should be your best pick.

No backcombing, no weaving, just blowdrying. At Fabio Scalia Salons, the team always keeps its finger on the pulse of current trends and new techniques. Colorists often performing popular techniques of foil, balayage and all over, but today we are discussing a new and trending technique; highlighting the hair with only a board and a blow dryer. In today's blog post, Soho colorist Claudia DeCicco guides us through the process of getting the color you’ve always dreamt of. “The first step is to section the hair into five quadrants. From there I take sections, slice them and put the blow dryer to the strands to remove baby hairs. To make it easier, I clip the tiny hairs down and once my section is ready, I hold a paddle underneath it with the foil and simply brush on the color. I let the color process until the hair has lifted to the desired look and then simply rinse. Depending on the client’s hair, I would add a gloss and root smudge if necessary.” “Most people think that foils leave a brighter but also sometimes ‘stripy’ result and that’s why a lot of people are preferring balayage because they want a more sunkissed and natural looking outcome. However, with this new technique, you get the lift and brightness. In other words, you don’t have to choose between being bright enough and natural looking. In addition, it’s great if you want a long lasting result that looks amazing in between your visits to the salon.” – Claudia DeCicco Schedule your appointment with us today in Soho Schedule your appointment with us today in Brooklyn Heights Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.
