There are tons of naturally powerful ingredients within these products that were made for people who love their bold bleached blond hair. Let’s take a look at the top two most powerful ingredients in Blond Absolu by Kerastase: Hyaluronic Acid Duo: This is the most powerful moisturizing ingredient known to science, so of course it needed to be added to this product! This ingredient is a superstar when it comes to skincare, so the experts behind Blond Absolu by Kerastase decided it would be a great fit in their shampoo. How does this ingredient work? Hyaluronic acid has shown in studies to hold 1000 times its weight in water. It creates a plumping effect and revitalizes everything it touches - both skin and hair, which to bleached and sensitized hair, brings deep-penetrating and hydrating nourishment. The duo contains upgraded hydrating power by a special formulation of high and low-weight molecules. The low-weight molecule is actually 50x lighter, so it penetrates and hydrates the fiber easily. The high-weight molecule then plumps the fiber, which recovers the elasticity of the hair. Edelweiss Oil: This delicate looking flower is harvested from the glaciers of the Alps and it is actually not delicate at all. It is known to withstand harsh weather and continue to bloom throughout both climate and environmental changes. Another popular skincare ingredient - Edelweiss oil just naturally belonged in hair care products as well. It not only softens hair, but it nourishes it and helps the fibers withstand the elements. It has natural antioxidant powers that protect your hair from everyday damage.

Sure, you may have doused your hair in layers of dry shampoo on days you didn’t quite have the time to wash your hair. But did you know that there are actually tons of benefits to using Kerastase Dry Shampoo on a regular basis? In addition, you actually shouldn’t wash your hair on a daily basis and you should be using Kerastase Dry Shampoo on a more regular basis. It is crucial though that you use the right dry shampoo - one that contains tons of healthy vitamins and minerals for your hair. At Fabio Scalia salons, we have you covered when it comes to your dry shampoo needs - as we utilize the five-star Kerastase Dry Shampoo and believe you should too. Let’s find out why dry-shampooing your hair more regularly has tons of benefits for your hair. Healthier Hair Happens When You Shampoo Less Take a minute to look at all of the ingredients (some you probably can’t even pronounce) on the back of your shampoo bottle. Many shampoos use agents like Glycol, Ammonium Chloride, or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, along with many other chemicals, in order to create a lather that foams when you wash your hair. If it foams, it must be washing it, right? Wrong. The more often you feed your hair these chemicals, the more damaged your hair becomes. Not only does it damage your hair, but it even damages your scalp! The damage can lead to premature greying, brittle and dry hair, dandruff or dry scalp, and more. You really need to limit your use of shampoos that have these chemicals - or avoid them entirely. Opt for something gentle on your hair that is loaded with vitamins, oils, and minerals in order to create happy and bouncy hair such as Kerastase Shampoo and Conditioner. Until then, wash your hair only 2-3 times each week and use Kerastase dry shampoo in between washes. Dry Shampoo Helps to Regulate Natural Oil Distribution Washing your hair does make your hair feel more clean, soft, and fresh. However, this feeling only lasts briefly. After only a day or two, depending on your hair type, your hair becomes oily again and you need to rewash it. Naturally oily hair is normal and the oils that your scalp produces actually nourishes your hair. Before you wash your hair, think about using your Kerastase dry shampoo. This will ensure that your natural oils are locked in, but your hair will be refreshed and clean without washing it. Kerastase Dry Shampoo Adds Both Texture and Volume to Your Hair The healthy powder within Kerastase Dry Shampoo (rice starch) makes your hair naturally more voluminous. Style as you normally would and run it through your hair in order to create a bouncy and textured look. All you need is your fingers and a brush. This is a great benefit for people who have fine or thin hair that falls flat when it’s a little on the greasy side. Kerastase dry shampoo works to lift and add volume, soothe irritated scalps, and improve damaged hair. It Decreases the Damage of Heat Normally, after you get done washing your hair, you might be reaching for your hair dryer, then soon after, a curling wand or straight iron to style your hair. However, even though you are probably already aware, too much use of these products creates heat damage. Heat damage can have negative effects on your hair such as split ends, brittle hair, and an overall ‘damaged’ look. Extend your time between each wash by using Kerastase Dry Shampoo and take some pressure off of your hair and your scalp. Kerastase Dry Shampoo Delivers Valuable Nutrients to Your Hair Kerastase Dry Shampoo is loaded with tons of natural hair-loving nutrients. In addition, it is silicone-free. Kerastase dry shampoo includes a very important hair ingredient - vitamin E. Vitamin E supports healthy hair and a healthy scalp due to its natural antioxidant properties. Vitamin E within Kerastase Dry Shampoo has shown to prevent hair loss, supports a healthy scalp, boost shine, and much more. You should consider using hair products that have vitamin E as one of their main ingredients - it will naturally prevent your hair from becoming damaged.

Photograph by Tāne Coffin for Byrdie.com We see them on the runways, streets and beaches – the scarf has never felt more right in time. Thanks to this fashionable trend, your low bun, classic ponytail or any other hairstyle will come out even prettier. In other words, it’s the perfect addition to complete your look this summer. “The hair scarf trend has been adapted by a lot of designers, including Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Fendi. As hairdressers in New York City, staying up to date with trends is our top priority. The scarf can not only be used as an accessory, but also as a tool to help women vary their hairstyles. For instance, if you want to move hair away from the face, you can use it as a headband. Another way to use it could be to camouflage outgrowth if you haven’t done your color in a while.” – Fabio Scalia Besides being a stylish accessory, the scarf also has many benefits on the hair’s health. It protects it from humidity, getting dehydrated, and also from UV radiation. As top hairdressers in New York City, we want your hair to look fabulous not only when you leave the salon, but also in between your appointments. Most people think that achieving a great scarf updo is hard and time consuming. Guess what? It doesn't have to be like that at all. Find out how by looking at the tutorials below. https://youtu.be/xRQNARTlzSQ https://youtu.be/KcR3xrRzKBk Tutorials by Claudia DeCicco Fabio Scalia is an upscale hair salon in SoHo and Brooklyn Heights, New York.

Photograph by Craig McDean, Styled by Melanie Ward for W Magazine As one of the best hair salons in New York City, recreating celebrity looks is a part of our everyday life. Trending right now is Margot Robbie's effortless chic waves seen on the cover of the latest issue of W magazine. The look feels just right in time and the style has been seen on other celebrities such as Kim K and Selena Gomez. Want waves like Margot Robbie? We've got you covered! The COLOR: “I absolutely love this color on Margot Robbie since it’s beachy and chic all in one, yet a look needing low maintenance to upkeep”, says our colorist in Soho, Claudia Decicco. There are a lot of different factors to consider when deciding upon a new hair color. The integrity of your hair is our top priority and we value its condition, not just the appearance. Therefore, we always recommend you schedule a consultation with us before you begin your makeover. This look, in particular, is great for someone who has a darker root but wants to be blonde, since it’s a mix of the two techniques balayage and ombré. What makes this hair color great is that you can achieve the lighter tones at the ends and around the face, while your roots would still have dimension. Meaning the style doesn’t require touch up that often and would still look great the weeks in between visits to the salon. A light face framing would essentially contour & highlight the facial features such as eyes and cheekbones and the look is ideal for clients with medium to fine hair. Creating the STYLE: Depending on the condition of your hair, you’ll get this look by cutting your hair in a style with minimal to no layering at all. However, the length, depending on your features, has to be just right for this particular look. It can't be too long and it can't be too short – it has to be just right. To achieve the effortless, yet textured finish, you would start by prepping your wet strands with a simple Sea-Salt Spray. “The condition of your hair is, and will always be our top priority, so don’t forget the heat protectant spray before using hot tools,” says our celebrity stylist Luis Miller. When your hair is 100% dry, go over it with a 1-1&3/4” curling iron. Wrap random smaller sections of hair around to create a slight wave in your hair, leaving the ends more on the straight side. Finish the look by applying a Dry Texture Spray for hold, volume, and, of course, texture. The UPKEEP: As a luxury salon in New York, we’re all about long-term results. We want to educate you to make sure that you know how to take care of your hair and scalp in between visits. We have previously talked about how using the right products for your hair and taking care of your strands in between visits is crucial for its health. Did you know that using drugstore shampoo that can strip the color out very quickly? We definitely wouldn’t want that to happen! Want waves like Margot?

Maintaining a vibrant hair color can be a really tough challenge. The key to having gorgeously colored locks (and keeping them that way) is all about proper hair care in-between salon visits. This does not mean adding major steps into your beauty regimen. In fact, it all gets down to small lifestyle changes that anyone can do. Here are 6 ways that you can extend the life of your hair color. 1. Stop using shampoo every single day Washing your hair too often doesn’t only result in a dry and lifeless mane, but it can also make your hair color duller. The shampoo strips your hair of color and also all natural oils from your scalp that nourishes and keep the hair looking healthy. The same oils are the ones that help your strands to take color better. That being said, keep your color fresh by using shampoo only a few times a week. Find out if you are you making these common washing mistakes here. 2. Avoid hot tools Turning up the heat on your styling tools can be tempting when you want to achieve the ultimate #hairgoals. However, that heat could be the reason that your color is looking a bit dull. Excessive use of hot tools can make your color fade faster than you wish, so avoid them as much as possible. 3. Use the right products In a previous post, we talked about the 5 products your really need and why, but when it comes to color-treated hair, you might want to upgrade your hair care routine slightly. Dyed hair requires more attention, so invest in salon-graded products for colored hair. 4. Give pigmented products a try Today, a lot of brands offer hair products such as shampoo and conditioner designed to enhance the already existing shade of your hair. Depending on the current color, the products may contain marigold or yellow shades for golden blondes, violet shades for white blondes and so on. A pigmented product can be used weekly or biweekly for a fresher tone. 5. Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate When having your hair colored, it’s more important than ever to keep the strands deeply hydrated. Hydrated hair holds onto color better and helps it to produce more shine than thirsty, dehydrated locks. Replenish your hair’s moisture by using a deep conditioning mask once a week. 6. Consult with a professional Figuring out what best for your specific hair is not easy. And let us be honest – no one knows your locks better than your stylist. Make sure you get their opinion on the best products and what you should be using when you get home from the salon. Are you ready for a makeover?

Are hair extensions the right thing for you, and why should you even consider it? Well, have you ever wondered how celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, and Jennifer Lopez, can go from a lob (long bob) to long mermaid hair overnight? The answer to this question is hair extensions. Nowadays, hair extensions are about so much more than just extending your hair to make it longer. Extensions can also add fullness, give you the ability to experiment with different styles (did you know that you can add fake bangs!?) and colors. In fact, that girl with the beautiful, long flowing locks that you were admiring yesterday could well have been using hair extensions. However, there are a couple of things that you may want to consider before your makeover. Down below we have listed four things you need to know before your makeover. Hair extensions tip #1 First of all, getting the color right is crucial. Most people don’t have only one shade of color in their hair – the shades tend to be mixed. Therefore, picking extensions with blended colors is usually preferred if you want more natural looking hair. Hair extensions tip #2 Another factor to consider before you put in hair extensions is how well you’re able to take care of your locks afterward. Your hair extensions should be treated in the same careful way as you would treat your own hair. Consult with your hairstylist to make sure you get the right type of products specifically for your hair type. It is also important that you go to follow up appointments with your stylist to make sure you treat your locks the right way to maintain your new look. Hair extensions tip #3 Let’s talk about quality. Great looking extensions should look perfectly natural and blend in with your own hair. At Fabio Scalia Salons, we use authentic human hair of the finest material to achieve the ultimate hair goals. Hair extensions tip #4 There are a lot of different methods on the market today and it’s easy to get lost in the jungle of clip-ins, micro rings, and tape. At Fabio Scalia Salon, we are proud to offer Great Lengths , with hair sourced from the temples of India. Great Lengths provides the most luxurious extensions on the market, made from ethically sourced, fully traceable non-chemically treated human hair. Find out more about this method here.

No matter how much conditioner you use, your hair doesn’t seem to detangle. The messy bun has become a part of your everyday uniform and every time you’re styling your locks it takes forever. Your hair care routine has come to a point where easy and simple no longer exists. Does this sound familiar? Then maybe it’s time for a trim. Determining whether you need to get a haircut or not can be hard but don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! Here are 5 reasons why you should book your appointment today. 1. You’ve got split ends There comes a time when not even a mask or a serum can give your dry ends new life. Breakage and split ends are generally a sign that you should have scheduled an appointment with your hairstylist yesterday. 2. You can’t remember your last appointment You’re busy we get it! But to maintain healthy hair, you should ideally get a trim every 5-7 weeks. Waiting longer can result in split ends (reason number one), which makes it harder for your hair to grow since it’s splitting or breaking from the bottom up. 3. You need a new look Sometimes all you need is a haircut to refresh your entire style. Your hair is a major way of self-expression and let’s not forget that if you don’t like it, it’ll grow back (or you cheat with extensions). 4. Your hair tangles Your split ends create knots more and more often and your best weapon is the scissors. It’s hard to tame a frizzy mane, so give it a fix by a professional. 5. You have more bad hair days than good So you can’t remember the last time you woke up with a hairstyle that’s actually a style? Then it’s probably time for a trim. Styling your hair should be easy and if every morning is a hassle trying to fight your hair, the salon is probably worth a visit. Does this seem familiar? Book your appointment today here (Soho) or here (Brooklyn). How often can you really color your hair without damaging it? Find out here!
It’s that time of year when you can’t wait to get the right hair color for the summer. We’re all craving flawless color goals and whether you’re dreaming of adventurous rainbow locks or lighter tones, it’s safe to say that hair color is a major way of expressing yourself. Most people are aware that coloring your hair does no good to the quality of it. But let’s face the fact that a little damage won’t stop us from getting the shade of our dreams. But it leaves us all with one major question: How much can our manes take? Truth is, there are no rules for how often you can color your hair – it all comes down to a couple of factors that you should consider before your makeover. First of all, it depends on the current condition of your hair. If it’s is in good shape, you can touch up the color more often. If you’re thinking about changing your hair color completely, you should make sure that your hair is in its best possible condition. That being said, using the right products for your specific hair type is key. (Read more about the 5 products you really need for healthy hair here.) Another factor that affects how often you can color the hair is the quality of the products. This is also one of the main reasons why you shouldn’t dye your hair at home. At Fabio Scalia Salons, we use products of highest quality to cause the least amount of damage as possible. Also, there is a reason why hair stylists must complete several years of schooling! The color theory and chemistry is very detailed and differs for every single hair type. But what you can do at home is to take care of your new hair color. Investing in color preserving products and tools are crucial and can help beat unnecessary color fade and damage. So, as a rule of thumb, listen to your hair (and your colorist) if you think you’re dyeing your hair too much. Knowing your hair type, quality, and how much it can handle can be challenging but we’ve got you covered! Schedule a consultation today at 212-343- 0523.
It’s easy to get lost in the jungle of hair products. Styling your hair should be easy, and with the right hair products, the right amount, and yes a little bit of time you can get the results you wish for. Using too many products can actually have the opposite effect. The more products you use, the more buildup you’ll acquire on your scalp. Buildup itself clogs pores and does no good for your hair. Consistent with this idea, less is sometimes actually more. We need to go back to the basics: cleansing, hydrating, protecting, styling, and finishing – here are the five essentials you really need for amazing hair. Shampoo & Conditioner Probably a no brainer but picking the right shampoo and conditioner is crucial for having great hair. It doesn’t only help you build a stronger foundation, but can also help you restore moisture if your hair has been damaged by color, chemical processing or heat styling. Consult with your hairdresser what works best for your specific hair type. And if your hair doesn't have any specific needs you can use a shampoo/conditioner from Oribe Signature, or label M honey & oat shampoo and conditioner Heat Protector A golden rule for healthy hair is spelt heat protection. The product forms a protective barrier over the cuticle on the hair strand which prevents heat damage and enables you to maintain a healthy mane. Prep your locks with this game changer every time before you use any type of styling tools. Imperial blow out from Oribe and heat protection spray from Label.m are few of our suggestions. Finishing Spray So you managed to get yourself an amazing hairstyle. Now what? Invest in a good finishing spray to get the texture you want and to make your style last longer. The impermeable spray from Oribe will protect your hair from humidity and Label.m Sea Salt Spray to create texture and natural waves. Hair Mask Either if it’s to add moisture, fight frizz or build strength – a hair mask should always be a part of your hair care routine. You want to ensure that you’re giving your hair the perfect base to create any look and get the most out of your styling products. To maintain healthy hair, you should treat yourself with a hair mask at least every ten days. Consult your hairstylist before choosing a product, but we suggest Oribe Masque for Beautiful Color or label.m Intense Mask for moisturizing. Are you making these 5 common hair washing mistakes? Find out how not to make them anymore.
Shampoo. Rinse. Conditioner. Rinse. How hard can it be? Washing your hair might seem like the easiest thing to do but there are a couple of hair washing mistakes that most of us are guilty of – without even thinking about it! Bad news: you’re probably doing it the wrong way. The good news: we’re going to help you fix it. Get healthy, beautiful hair that is full of bounce by avoiding the mistakes listed below. Hair washing mistake #1: Your washing technique needs some fine-tuning The fact is that a lot of people make this hair washing mistake. Most people apply shampoo to the roots and add more product as they wait for it to lather up. Remember that hair tend to be dirtiest at the roots and drier towards the ends, so apply shampoo to the scalp and work your way down. And do not forget to be generous with the massage! Hair washing mistake #2: You’re using the wrong products The wrong products can leave your hair feeling dry, weighed down, and lifeless. Make sure to pick a shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type. Not sure what’s best for you? Ask your hairstylist next time you visit the salon. Hair washing mistake #3: You’re shampooing only once So you keep applying shampoo until it starts to lather? This is not only a waste of product but it also does unnecessary damage to your hair. The first time you shampoo your hair you are getting rid of loose dirt and old product and the shampoo will not produce much lather. The second shampoo will produce much more lather because you are starting with a cleaner scalp. So next time, try shampooing twice with less product instead of once with more. (check out Oribe site for ideas on which shampoo to use) Hair washing mistake #4: You’re washing your hair too often The natural oils from your scalp nourish your hair and keep it hydrated and protected. Washing your hair too often can result in a dry and lifeless mane. So how often should you wash it? It depends on your hair type. For example, if you have dry hair, washing it too often would make it drier and weaker. On the other hand, if your hair is oily, you might have to wash it every other day so it doesn’t look greasy. If your hair gets oily fast try adding a dry shampoo to your styling routine. Hair washing mistake #5: You’re cheating with masks Can’t remember the last time you treated yourself with a hair mask? No judging – it happens to everyone! Applying a hair mask should be easy. However, if you have time and are committed to getting healthy hair, try sleeping with a mask. Apply the product and cover with a silk scarf, rinse out in the morning and wake up with silky hair. Ideally, you would add a mask to your hair care routine every 10 days to fight frizz, add moisture and increase hair quality. Want gorgeous hair all summer?
