Your clients’ hair has to perform as hard as they do, how do you ensure your styles stay looking perfect all day and night long?
“For me keeping the integrity and health of the hair is always priority number one. If your hair is in bad shape, it’s going to show. The more damaged it is, the more it has to be fixed with extensions, hair pieces, and clip-ins. Good strong hair is the best foundation. After that comes good styling prep. I almost always prepare hair with a volume mousse or spray and blow dry that in to give the hair some grit. This is especially important on extra silky hair to give some stickiness that makes the style hold all night.
