Holiday Hairstyles

It’s holiday party time, so we’ve put together some of the hottest hairstyles of the season:

SEXY MESSY BALLERINA BUN

This updo is way easier than it looks! To get the textured bun, spritz texturing spray all over your clean, dry hair, and tease the crown with a comb. This particular hairstyle is ideal for those with naturally curly hair; however, if you have straight hair like our model does, you'll need to spend some time curling small pieces of hair with a small-barrel curling iron.

  1. Pull hair into a high ponytail and brush the hair up.
  2. Then over the ponytail wrap a mesh donut around the base.
  3. Then split the ponytail into 4 or 5 equal sections.
  4. Wrap each section, 1 by 1, around the mesh donut and use bobby pins to secure to the bun. Leave ends poking out.
  5. Now with a firm hold hairspray, spray the style and you’re all set.  

SOFT & SEXY CURLS

  1. Start with clean, dry hair.
  2. Apply a texturing balm through hair.
  3. Wrap small sections of your hair around a curling iron, but don't use the clamper. Not using the clamper will result in looser, natural-looking curls!
  4. Finish off with your favorite hairspray.

FESTIVE FRENCH TWIST

  1. Gather the top quarter section of hair into a ponytail and secure with a hair elastic.
  2. Take a 2 inch section from each side of your head and pull toward the back.
  3. Twist both sections and then put them together with a hair elastic to create a 2nd small ponytail.
  4. Continue with 2 inch sections until all hair in secured.
  5. Take the top section of hair and the ends of the 2 inch ponytail sections, twist and secure with bobby pins.

THE HIGH AND TIGHT

Your barber probably knows it by name, but there are variations. Usually it goes from the lowest setting on the electric clippers and fades up, leaving the top long enough to work in pomade and style.

THE STYLED BEDHEAD

Trim the sides with a pair of scissors and leave the top long. Style with a little coconut oil and by tightly twisting individual pieces with your fingers or a comb.

THE DEBONAIR MOUNTAIN MAN

Let your scruffy beard grow full and wear your whiskers! Trim beard and apply beard lotion/oil to avoid looking too bushy. Dab a bit of pomade into your hair and mold it up and to the center from both sides with your fingers.

Happy holidays and to a new year of healthy hair! If you have thinning hair and would like help resolving your hair loss or looking at hair replacement options, our skilled stylists will give you the look you want! To schedule an appointment or consultation, please call 800-966-9505.

How Stress Can Affect Hair Loss

High stress levels and hair loss can be related. In general, there’s 3 types of hair loss that are usually associated with high stress:

Telogen effluvium: With telogen effluvium, major stress can push high numbers of your hair follicles into a resting phase. After a few months of this, affected hairs may fall out suddenly when washing or combing your hair.

Alopecia areata: Multiple factors are thought to cause alopecia areata, including severe stress. The body’s immune system attacks your hair follicles, causing hair to fall out and resulting in bald patches.

Trichotillomania: If you have an overwhelming urge to pull your hair out from your scalp, you may be suffering from trichotillomania. Hair pulling can be an outlet for dealing with uncomfortable or negative feelings like tension, boredom, frustration, stress or loneliness.

If you’re experiencing mild hair loss, it’s most likely due to telogen effluvium or even stress-weakened hair. But a small percentage of hair loss sufferers can experience alopecia or trichotillomania.

2017 Fall Hair Trends

Are you looking for a change for fall? Get ready for these new hair fashions for fall 2017!

The Low Ponytail

We’re seeing many types of low ponytails for this upcoming fall: messy, sleek, side. Achieve a sophisticated look with a ponytail that starts at the base of your head or move it down to your shoulders or lower!

Updated French Twist

The French twist is getting a fresh update for a looser, cooler, and more youthful look. Don’t be afraid to make it a little messy. Add some statement accessories like a pin or ribbon to give it a chic boost.

Knot Buns

This fall is all about embracing an easygoing, laissez-fair style. Say goodbye to well-kept buns and say hello to messy, thrown-together knots.

Half-Up

Partial updos are in! From simple styles like a loose half or quarter ponytail to more detailed looks like crimped hair, little braids, and sophisticated twists – the sky’s the limit with this trend.

Top Style

A sharp contrast to the fall trends above, this one requires a tip-top bun, knot, or ponytail. Think 1960’s classic and you’ve got it down. This style tends to be sleek, tight, and professional.

If you have thinning hair and would like help resolving your hair loss or looking at hair replacement options, our skilled stylists will give you the look you want! To schedule an appointment or consultation, please call 800-966-9505.

Menopause and Hair Loss

Hair loss is often one of those symptoms of menopause that catch women off guard, bot more than 40% of menopausal women experience it. Why don’t we talk more about it? Essentially, hair loss looks and works differently for women than for men. It doesn’t usually look like full baldness, but rather consist of subtler changes such as thinner hair, a wider part line, and more hair shedding. The impact can be rough on self-esteem, especially when combined with the other hormonal changes that are happening. So what causes menopausal hair loss, and what are your treatment options?

Hormones and Other Key Factors

The primary reason behind menopausal hair loss is the change of hormones – mainly in the levels of estrogen and progesterone. These hormones decrease, while hormones like testosterone increase. These dramatic shifts in hormones can cause hair follicles to stop working properly, stunting hair growth and resulting in thinning hair.

However, hormones aren’t the cause of menopausal hair loss. There are other key factors that could be playing a part in the thinning hair and hair loss of women experiencing menopause. These factors include nutritional deficiencies, thyroid health, and other medical complications that may be affecting you. Always discuss your symptoms with a doctor to get a professional medical opinion and help you understand your options better.

Identifying & Treating Hair Loss

Hair loss is often difficult to see before it becomes significant. If hair loss isn’t recognized soon enough, there may not be sufficient time for the treatments to have their full effect. That’s why we recommend that women who are going through menopause come to HRC for a complimentary evaluation. We’ll help determine if there are any warning signs of hair loss, and we can recommend a treatment from there.

The good news is that women’s hair loss is a treatable condition, and at HRC we can help determine the best course of action for your hair loss treatment. Depending on your needs, these treatments can range from simple lifestyle changes to topical solutions, laser hair therapy, hair replacement, and beyond.

For more information about menopausal hair loss treatment options, or to book your complimentary hair and scalp evaluation, call our hair loss practitioners today at 800-966-9505.

5 Ways You May Be Inadvertently Hurting Your Hair

Could you be accidentally harming your hair? You may be making these common hair care mistakes, but don’t worry! Being aware is the first step in regaining your hair health, and we also provide many treatment options for varying levels of damaged and thinning hair.

So let’s take a look at what hair care mistakes to avoid!

1. Overusing Heat Appliances

While you aren’t going to start going bald just because you’ve used a flat iron every now and then, it’s important to be cautious with your use of heat appliances. Daily use will dry out your hair and leave it brittle, damaged, and broken. If you can’t stay away from heat appliances, try to use the lowest heating settings as often as possible and limit use as much as you can. Look into alternative ways to dry and style your hair to keep it healthy and undamaged.

2. Styling it with Tight Updos

Again, the occasional tight braid or ponytail will not damage your hair irreparably. However, regularly pulling back your hair into tight styles can wear on your hair and also affect your hairline. The strain can eventually do permanent damage! Make sure that your updos don’t pull on your scalp. Looser braids, ponytails, and buns will allow your hair the room to breathe. Also, avoid styling wet hair in an updo, and let your hair down as often as you can.

3. Over-Brushing Your Hair

Brushing your hair too much can pull it out of your scalp, and can cause an increase in shedding. Try to be as gentle as possible when you brush your hair, and don’t use too many strokes to get the job done. If you have a habit of brushing your hair with a hundred strokes every day, it can result in damaged and even thinning hair! Additionally, be sure to replace old brushes as needed, since worn-out ones can do a lot of damage.

4. Over-Shampooing Your Hair

Shampoo is designed to get rid of all the grease and dirt that’s accumulated on your scalp, but too much shampooing can cause damage to the hair cuticle and sometimes even result in hair loss. Try decreasing the amount of times you shampoo your hair to every other day, or even to just a couple times a week.

5. Bleaching Your Hair

If you bleach your hair regularly, you will ultimately cause lasting damage. Powerful chemicals are stripping your hair of essential nutrients, making it weaker and less healthy. Eventually, bleach will cause your hair to become so brittle that it breaks. Try giving your hair a break from the bleaching, and if possible, ditch the bleach completely and find a different style that doesn’t require it for healthiest results!
