AMERICAN WAVE

I think I might be feeling this! For volume, texture, curls, and beach waves ARROJO American Wave is a quantum leap. It is a way to create soft, natural-looking waves and curl patterns for today’s style-conscious clients. Using an innovative, ionic waving lotion the product penetrates the hair shaft gently, without roughing the cuticle or making it swell, which is what old-fashioned perms used to do. The ionic lotion reduces stress on tresses, creates a smoother cuticle, and makes hair fabulous and full. Instead of setting hair with hard tools, we combine soft tools with editorial techniques, so looks are fashion-forward, not frumpy. With American Wave we can offer the permanent creation of wave and curl, volume and fullness; we can make hair more or less wavy or curly; we can use it to control frizz, add texture, movement or volume. It’s long-lasting, with loose waves only needing a redo every three months. And instead of chemical perms, it smells of eucalyptus. “It’s time to reinvent permanent waving and get rid of the fears,” says Nick Arrojo. “Rather than seeing every hairstyle as perfectly straight, we promote the graceful elegance and individuality of texture. We created a product to match our vision.” wave2_sacramento_hair

LONG BOBS

This is one of my favorite haircuts! It looks good on everyone if done right. I think the key to avoiding that soccer mom looks is to not do too much layering. It needs weight removed but only in the heaviest areas. It is a fresh new style when you get sick of the long hair but long enough to still pull back.

RAHUA

rahua Another miracle hair-care system, this one was developed from the Rahua nut found in the Amazon. Hairstylist Fabian Lliguin, imported the nut to the US after discovering the amazing sheen and smoothness it gives hair. Tried and tested, it’s true with the added bonus that there’s no buildup.

HOW TO CREATE A TEXTURED BOB

how to create a textured bobStep 1: Starting with dry hair, create curls with a 3/4-inch curling iron and a 1-inch curling iron. (Using two different size irons in alternate directions will create natural-looking waves.) We love Enzo Milano 3/4″ Round Clipless Curling Iron, $119.99 at Ulta.com, and Gold ‘N Hot Marcel 1″ Curling Iron, $29.99 at SallyBeauty.com.

Step 2: After hair has cooled, rake fingers through to break up the curls.

Step 3: To keep the look matte and full of texture, work in a little blowPro Faux Dry Dry Shampoo, $20 at BlowNY.com. Via Glam.com
