Darker hair seems to be in demand for colder weather Many colorists have observed that their clients are turning away from summer highlights, and changing their hair to darker roots for the colder weather. One reason might be that by the end of the summer season your hair may be bleached out and no longer compliment your complexion. Instead of radiating light (like when on a beach or walking in a park), lighter strands of hair seem to consume light, whereas dark hair tends to bring out luster, glow, and volume in the fall and winter seasons.

Just imagine the freedom that is derived from knowing that you may never have to dye your hair again to be attractive!

We asked our colorists for their best advice and this is what they suggested: “The changeover to gray hair color could be a tough challenge, especially if your hair is long. If a client has dark hair, adding lowlights would be a good option to consider for an easier transition. You would add your base color into the gray hair, so to break the line of demarcation between regrowth and colored hair. A client who is naturally light could stop doing a base color and just do highlights to transition. The process of becoming gray is individual and cannot be the same for all. Therefore, I highly recommend all clients to come in for a consultation. As hair turns gray when we get older, the texture also changes. Embracing not only your grays, but also the new texture, will require looking for a new hairstyle and changing your choice of products”. – Lucio Galano, Color Director, Soho Here are just a few of the most trendy ideas to get you started: Highlights is a process that gradually makes the transition easy so that the changes will not stand out like a “sore thumb.” Mixed Ash Gray Highlights add many hues, like deep brown lowlights, silver, and ash gray.

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?
