Here we have a creative, protective, natural style. The child’s parents wanted her hair in a style that would last 1 to 2 weeks. She had her hair shampooed, conditioned, blown dry, ends cut (which makes it easier for the client to handle at home) cornrowed and french braided into 2 braids. The Stylist used Influance It’s Natural Twist and Lock Gel while braiding to help the cornrows last. This intricate style will keep as long as the child is wearing a satin bonnet, a My Crowning Jewel or a 100% silk scarf to bed. This will protect it from the cotton pillow case from absorbing her moisture and messing up her hair style while sleeping.
She will also wear a shower cap in the shower or while taking a bath to keep it from getting wet and this will allow the style to have longevity. Spraying the hair with Influance Oil Sheen and Conditoning Spray a couple times per week, will assure that her hair is moisturized and conditioned. If these few things are done, I can assure that this style still will look just as good on day 14 as it did when it was first done.
This is one of our favorite little ladies and she sat still for this intricate style. Each side is cornrowed towards the middle to create a mohawk style and the front was cornrowed towards the front to create bangs. This style will last 2 weeks with the help of tying it up at night and wearing a shower cap in the shower or bath tub to not get it wet. This client is definitely a princess, she is a pleasure to have visit our Salon.
Great Hair System/Cut/Style
This client needed options! She was tired of relaxers, tired of her hair swelling up when the weather was humid and when she exercised. Still wanting to wear her hair straightened as well as be able to wear natural styles. The client did not want to be committed to a chemical service. We recommended the “Great Hair Reconstructing System”. It is designed to strengthen, silken and repair your hair without any chemicals. See the shine! Options is what everyone wants!
Our client wanted a totally new look, her hair was down to the middle of her back and it was dark brown. After evaluation and consultation we calculated a formula to achieve this desired color. Then we talked about a new haircut and decided that this would fit her facial features and her busy lifestyle. The Stylist gave her a bob with layers, then blew dry her hair and flat ironed it into style.
Look at the body and the movement in the picture, it was all created with this particular cut and color. At night, she will have to wrap her hair in order to wake up still looking good and also wear a plastic shower cap while showering. This is the key to making her customized color and cut last, as well as returning to the Salon in 6-8 weeks for color re-touch and a trim. Her “At Home Hair Care Regimen” will consist of shampooing with Influance It’s Natural Organic Shampoo and Conditioner.
Naturally curly/Elevated bob
Client had us cut more than 10 inches of her healthy hair to achieve this style and donate 10 inches of it to “Locs of Love”. This is not her first time cutting her hair to share! We used “Twist and Define” to give her natural curls a bit of hold and moisture. She will then use a mosturizer during the week to maintain her new look.
Spiral curled locs
Partial foil/layered natural bob
Client wanted a full foil look without getting a full foil and that led me to give her a partial foil that gave her the look she desired. Then we we gave her a layered bob so that she will be able to have a cut that will look great naturally curly or flat ironed. (Versatility is key!!!) She will wrap this style every night to be able to wear this look daily and not have to apply heat to it to look good.
Client chose to use 2 colors of extensions to add some fun to her hair style. This style can last up to 4-6 weeks by tying the hair up with a “My Crowning Jewel” to protect it while sleeping, so you can wake up looking fabulous. While wearing this style the client will shampoo her hair and scalp (at least every 2 weeks) and properly dry.
If she is not able to do it herself or come to SEUHS to get her hair and scalp shampooed and properly dried, she will use Influance’s Skin and Scalp Antiseptic on the scalp. This product helps to remove any anti-bacterial or anti-fungal properties from the scalp. Then she will lightly moisturize the scalp during the week with the recommended styling aid (nothing heavy). She will not repeat this braided style right after taking these braids out for fear of “Traction Alopecia”, she will give her scalp and hair the recommended rest.
I woke up like this!
Relaxed hair, shampooed, blown dry, cut and flat ironed
Client came in fearful about losing length but as you can see her ends were in desperate need of being cut. She has not had a cut or trim in a very long time, hair was shedding and breaking. We used Influance’s shampoo, Proplex Reconstructor and follow it up with Hydrating Conditioner. We then lightly sprayed her hair with Leave in Conditioner and Moisture Lock with Shea Butter (for moisture and protection), blew it dry, cut about 2 inches (which will promote growth) and flat ironed her hair into style.
I asked her prior to cutting to run her fingers through her hair to feel the difference of the mid-shaft of her hair and the ends……………….rough! Then when we cut her ends I had her run her fingers through it again and she immediately felt the difference. Split ends do nothing for us but create more hair care problems.
Now we have a client that “seeing is believing” has been her motto and is now a believer. She will now be back every 6-8 weeks for a routine trim and a Proplex Reconstructor so that it will help with keeping her hair and scalp healthy.
