  • Hairstyling Tip of the Day: Beating the Humidity

    humid hair, humid hair tips, humidity and hair, hair and humidity, how to beat the humidity, protecting your hair from humidity

     

    Here at StyleBell, we know hair. So, with that, we also know how frustrating the summer's humidity can be for most hair types. We've decided to fight this humidity battle with you by rounding up all of our tried and true methods to prevent the humid moisture from messing up your hair and your day. These are our go-to tips:

    1.) Switch up your shampoo: There are two opposite problems humidity can cause for you depending on your hair type. If you're someone who's hair flops and falls flat as soon as there is a tiny bit of moisture in the air, switch to a super light weight volumizing shampoo. This will prevent the added moisture in the air from weighing your hair down & causing you to look oily and straggly. If you're the type, like me, who's hair tends to grow while it is humid, switch to a super heavy moisture shampoo and conditioner. This will jam pack your hair with moisture and prevent it from absorbing too much in the humidity. Plus, if your straight style tends to curl up in the moisture, the added weight of this shampoo and conditioner combo will help it from growing upwards and probably contribute to a nice, natural wave!

    2.) Use products generously! Even if you are afraid the humidity will weigh you down and make you fall flat, do NOT -- I repeat -- do NOT avoid using products because of this. Load your hair up generously with all of your favorite styling products, including a thermal protectant with a humidity shield. Adding product while styling provides a coating that the moisture would have to break through first before causing any havoc on your style. We like to refer to it as our product forcefield ;)

    3.) Don't be afraid to get sprayed: I know there are tons of people who absolutely hair to use hairspray -- I am one of them. However, when you know it is humid, you must go against your belief of remaining hairspray and natural and spray it up! Using a light finishing spray or a light hold hairspray reinforces that product forcefield we just discussed and actually reactivates when it is humid out to double protect your hair. Be sure you are looking for a humidity shield or protectant while product shopping!

    We hope we've given you some helpful tips as to how to beat this humid season with perfect hair!

  • Coconut Oil: Your All Natural Hair & Skin Remedy!

    coconut oil, coconut oil home uses, coconut oil beauty uses, coconut oil hair treatments, coconut oil skin treatments, coconut oil moisturizer, coconut oil all natural treatments Coconut oil has become huge lately for all of it's amazing health benefits however, you will pleased to know, it also has the same amazing benefits for your hair -- and it smells amazing & beachy in the process! Perfect all natural hair and skin treatments for the summer time! We've dug up just a few of our favorite coconut oil beauty uses, but trust me, it doesn't end here! There are endless options with this wonder oil!

    1. Hot Oil Treatment -- this will leave your hair feeling incredibly soft! Plus, it's all natural so you know exactly what you are using on you, or your children's, hair after the beachy salt water has stripped it of it's moisture! How do you use it? Well, for those of you who are already familiar with coconut oil, you know it comes in a more semi-solid form, so we recommend scooping out 2-3 tablespoons into a microwave safe dish and heating it until it melts into it's oil form. This time may very but should not take more than a few seconds! Then, apply it to your hair starting from root to tips and leave on for 15-20 minutes. We prefer to use a shampoo cap so that we don't get our clothing oily and to lock in the extra heat from our scalp to help the oils penetrate deep into our strands.

    2. Overnight Deep Conditioning Treatment -- Following the same steps as in number one, we love using coconut oil on wet hair and leaving it on as an overnight deep conditioning treatment. For this treatment, we definitely recommend the shower cap to prevent the oils from getting all over your pillows. You will be amazed at how soft and smooth your hair feels after shampooing the oil out the next morning!

    3. Face & Body Moisturizer -- Melting the oil the same way you did for the hair treatments, we LOVE using coconut oil as a face and body moisturizer or make up primer. The delicious oil absorbs into our skin while leaving it with a super shimmery, healthy glow that is perfect for summer! For the face, we recommend taking your index finger and dabbing it into the melted oil, then putting a dot under each eye. From those dots, use your fingers to help spread the oil by dabbing it to encompass the entire area surrounding your eye. This will make your eyes bright and help to eliminate the appearance of dark circles. For the rest of your face, use 1-2 more dabs with your index finger, dispersing it evenly among your face and neck. The product is so smooth that a little goes a long way. For the body, follow the same type of routine while instead of using the index finger to apply, use the oil by rubbing it between your palms and applying like regular body lotion. Leave the extra oil on your hands as a cuticle oil for an added bonus!

    4. Bath Soak -- and last but definitely not least, we absolutely LOVE adding coconut oil to our bathwater for a super hydrating and aromatic soak! The added bonus with this one? It leaves a crazy healthy sheen on your skin post-bath! We recommend using between a 1/4 and 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil per full tub. You will love how relaxing this is!

  • Hair How To: Kendall Jenner at the Billboard Music Awards!

    kendall jenner, kendall jenner billlboard hair, kendall jenner red carpet hair, kendall jenner hair how to, kendall jenner hair style, kendall jenner style, kendall jenner hairWe are obsessing over the slicked-back wet look Kendall Jenner was rocking at the Billboard Music awards this weekend -- SO simple and SO sexy! We loved it so much we had to write up a hair how-to so we can all have fun recreating this look at home.

     

    What You'll Need:

    • Shampoo & Lightweight Conditioner (we recommend Daily Beauty for Wildlife Amplifying Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner)
    • Volumizing Mousse like Bain de Terre Rise and Shine Volumizing Foam
    • Hydrating Shine Serum like our favorite Maijan Leave-In
    • Finishing Spray like Simply Smooth Humidity Shield Hairspray
    • Shimmer Shine Spray for added shine (optional)

     

    How to Get the Look: 

    1. Start by using your lightweight shampoo & conditioner to get your hair nice and clean without adding any extra weight. You will be adding some heavier based products later, so the lightweight conditioner in this step will prevent your hair from becoming too flat!
    2. Load up your hair with mousse, starting at the roots & working your way down. I recommend a good 3-4 pumps for shoulder length hair and or a small handful from an aerosol bottle.
    3. Using a round brush to smooth your frizzes & get some lift at the roots, blow dry your hair off your face towards the back of your head. For MAXIMUM volume before styling, flip your head upside down and give your roots a good blow-dry before starting this step. Then, if necessary, flat iron your hair towards the back, avoiding the roots as much as possible to prevent loosing your volume.
    4. Pump out a few pumps of your shine serum into your palms and work them together well. Use your fingertips to gently guide the hair towards the back of your head while giving it a more sleek look. Be careful not to overload your root area, but don't be shy working the product through the mid shaft and ends!
    5. During step 4 and after, use a finishing spray to help secure your look in place, focusing on the roots and mid shaft in this step. Keep using your finger tips with serum on them to help guide the finishing spray through your strands! Be generous with your finishing spray, especially if you have bangs, but be sure to hold the product about 6-12 inches away from your head to prevent getting your look too "wet," depending on the type of hold hairspray you've chosen. For hairsprays with a heavier hold, hold the product closer to 12 inches away and vice versa for lightweight sprays.
    6. If you want to add some extra shine after all of this, try giving your hair 1 or 2 spritz of the Maijan Shimmer Shine Spray from about 6 inches away. Use your palms to evenly distribute it across the smooth surface of your slicked back look!
    7. Enjoy!

    Maintaining Your Blowout without Creases:
     The best way to maintain the volume and smoothness of your blowout overnight is to avoid the use of hair elastics in every way. However, you should absolutely smooth your hair back to prevent creases from lying on it, as well. How do we recommend you do this? Rolling your hair up with a bun-ease into a nice smooth bun – it will ass volume, keep hair smooth, and maybe even add a nice loose wave! Is your hair not long enough for a bun-ease? Use extra long bobby pins to roll your hair into a high bun in the same way. For a smoother, sleeker, less wavy look, wrap all of your hair around your head as seen above, and secure with a bobby pin. Sure, you may look silly, but I can guarantee your blowout will last!

    Waking Up With Waves: Part your hair down the middle and braid or twist your hair in a pigtail fashion to evenly distribute waves across your head. Braids will give you a tighter, more kinky curl where twisting your hair (adding pieces in here and there) to secure the twist will give you loose, more beachy waves. You can control the type of wave you get by where you start your braids/twist. If you want just a little bit of wave at the ends, start there, if you want an all over look, try French braiding or twisting your hair while continuously adding new pieces into the twist.

    Keep Your Bangs Banging: Bangs can be one of the most difficult tasks for some, especially those of us with cow-licks. However, they don't have to be! Once you’ve styled your bangs to perfection, there’s no reason you can’t maintain that style for days with your perfect blowout. Bangs can be tough, since they tend to get smushed around while we sleep no matter how we secure them, but there is definitely some quick fixes for it! Secure your bangs down to either side while you sleep using a bobby pin or any other type of flat pin. Some may fall out, but that’s okay, because you can fix it in the morning with a light mist of a water and leave-in conditioner combo and give it a quick blow dry back in place. It’s amazing how much this extra step of styling can actually help train cowlicks also!

    Get Serious About Hydration: One of our FAVORITE ways to get the most out of any hair treatments or conditioning treatments is to throw our favorite shower cap on and leave it on overnight. Why? We tend to curl up in blankets when we sleep, raising the naturally elevated temperature of our scalp one or two degrees allowing for intense penetration of all of our favorite treatments. After all, if you’re going to do a treatment, you might as well save time and get the most bang for your buck by doing it while you sleep, right?!

  • Choosing the Right Flat Iron For Your Keratin Treatment!

    We know how difficult it can be to get the results you are looking for out of a keratin treatment -- but it doesn't have to be! If you're not getting the results you want, odds are, you're not using the right tool. In keratin treatments, the flat iron and temperature are key in treatment performance.  We recommend considering 3 things when buying your next flat iron to guarantee excellent smoothing performance for daily styling and some serious seal for your keratin treatments!

    1.) Titanium Plates: Titanium is the perfect plate material for keratin treatments. Why? Because of it's stable heat conducting ability. With titanium plates, the heat gets evenly distributed across the entire plate and holds heat at an even, set temperature. This prevents "hot spots" and guarantees that you have flat ironed each section evenly with every pass.

    2.) Variable Heat Temperature: Variable heat settings are key in maintaining your hair integrity, and also the perfect way to customize your keratin treatments when using brands like Global Keratin, who provide you with instructions to follow per hair type.

    3.) Durable Outer Housing: We LOVE the Ryton material Babyliss uses for the exterior portion of their flat irons. This is EXTREMELY important for stylists or anyone who will be doing a keratin treatment, as they require you to work closely with the flat iron for a longer period of time. This housing makes the flat-iron's extremely comfortable to grip without the concern of getting burned!

    Check out our quick video on all of the reason's we recommend Babyliss Titanium Flat Irons for Keratin Treatments!

  • Hairstyling Tip of the Day: How To Handle Cowlicks!

    cowlicks, hairstyling tip of the day, how to tame your cowlicks, cowlicks, reese witherspoon, hair hacks, hair tricks, hair tips, reese witherspoon hair, reese witherspoon cowlick, how to handle cowlicks

    We know how frustrating cowlicks can be but unfortunately, almost everyone has one in one place or another! The most pesky place? Right along your front hairline, or in the bang like Reese Witherspoon. Depending on how resistant your hair type is and how stubborn your cowlick choses to be, we've listed our favorite ways to conquer the cowlick! If one doesn't work for you, try another or a combination of a few -- something is bound to work, we promise!

    1.) Blow Dry Away from the Cowlick Pattern: You've probably already tried to train your re-train hair while blowdrying, but when it comes to cowlicks, technique is key. Drying cowlicks should be done IMMEDIATELY after you wash your hair. Letting the hair dry naturally, even just slightly, before blowdrying allows the cowlick to start to "take it's form." Eliminate this by blowdrying at least that section while your hair is still sopping wet. Use a firm grip brush and work this section back and forth, mostly away from the growth or "grain" and be sure to follow this up with a cool shot button.

    2.) Use a Root Lifter: Root lifters are the perfect hair hair for anyone who suffers from cowlicks. We recommend a mousse-based root lifter that sprays directly onto the root area. This can be used by itself to tame less stubborn cowlicks or in combination with step one for the extra stubborn growth patterns!

    3.) Cure Hair with a Keratin Treatment: Some may call this the cheaters way out, but we call it staying sane! If you have had enough of your battle and are tired of feeling defeated, try getting a smoothing treatment applied to just that area, or your whole head if you want to make your styling process really easy! Using a smoothing treatment will seal the hair in place for 4-6 weeks at a time, or until you have new growth. This is definitely worth it -- especially in the humid months of summer! Not to mention, if you stick to applying the treatment just to your problem area, it won't be costly at all!

    4.) Tease to Prevent Seperation: This is obviously a more temporary solution, but it's the perfect way to cover cowlicks on the back of the head or directly on the part. Not only will it help to blend in any unsightly parts, but it will give you a crazy boost in volume. Not a bad side effect if you ask me!

    5.) When All Else Fails, Rock it! If you're cowlick is too stubborn to response to these helpful hacks, it might be time to switch up your style to one that works more naturally with your cowlick. If your cowlick is on your hairline or part, find a style that will move with your cowlick and start to train the rest of your hair to move that way. After all, cowlicks are the hardest hair to "retrain," so starting fresh with the rest of your hair might be a lot easier!
