Hair trends of 2017

Every year brings on new hair colors, cuts, and styling techniques in the fashion industry. 2017 trends are a mix of the “old” and the “new”, making it easy for every generation to stay on top of the fashion of today! Want to stay in style? Book an appointment with the girls at NY Hair Company and get into style the NY Hair way!
1. The Androgynous Look: Do you have high cheek bones and a sharp chinline? No more hiding behind long locks! The Androgynous look is IN! Flaunt your beautiful features with a short “masculine” style haircut with “feminine” qualities! Perfect for men, women, and fluid gender. Remember, sometimes less is more, so cut the length and get rid of any bad memories of 2016 with a fresh “new” you!
2. Faux Perms: If you want curls without the commitment, faux perms are for you! Using a curling iron that is a half inch (or smaller depending on the length of your hair) and the proper hair products (ask your favorite NY Hair Stylist for the appropriate styling products for your hair! Remember, everyone’s hair is different, and not every product is a “One size fits all” type of product!) can give the illusion of a perfectly done perm without the permanent effects of a perm! Rock the curls with confidence, and remember, don’t pick them out or run your fingers through them to keep the perm look!
3. Forward Bangs: No more romantic sweeping bangs! 2017 is bringing edge back to the fashion industry! Blunt or textured, it doesn’t matter which, these bangs are in and here to stay! The best way to style them is to use a blowdry thermal protector (consult your NY Hair Stylist for the appropriate products for your hair type and texture. Like stated above, hair products are not “one size fits all”), apply to damp bangs, and round brush forward with a large (between 1.5-2 inches) roundbrush to get a smooth edgy look (anything smaller will put too much curl to them and give them too much volume). It’s time to conquer 2017 with a BANGin’ new look!
4. The Low Pony: Last year it was all about the top knot and messy buns, this year it’s the low, sleek ponytail! The easiest look to master and accessories, this style is a go to for anyone who needs a easy to do look! For the best results, flat iron with your favorite thermal protector, pull all of your hair back to the bottom of your hairline, wrap with an elastic (or your favorite scrunchie!), and use a light weight serum for any flyaways around the face! The low pony is perfect for the once a week hair washers who need something simple and stylish when they hold out that extra day before shampooing!
5. The Classic Bob: Think of the roaring 20’s! The one length, over the shoulder style, perfect for straight, wavy, and curly hair, the bob is back and here to stay! A-lines are now a thing of the past! Keeping it simple and sassy seems to be the theme of 2017. There are many ways to style a classic bob, so don’t be fooled by the length of the look! It can be smoothed out with a thermal spray and flat iron, roughed up with some paste or wax styling products, or curled with some hair spray and thermal guard. Ask your stylist at NY Hair Company for the right products for styling to go with your natural hair texture and cut the length for this fun, in style look!
6. Bold Cool Tones: Pastels? Who has time for that! The innocent look is out, and is being taken over by the bold cool tones of Emerald Greens and Royal Blues. Cool tones are in this year to go with the more “punky” cuts and styles that have taken over 2017 (read back to bullet points 1-3). The best part is, these colors can be used in multiple ways! Do you have dark hair and hate the idea of lightening your hair to platinum for these colors? The oil slick is perfect for you! With this look, your hair will barely need lightened (less processing means less damage if done correctly by your stylist) and the colors will be less noticeable (perfect for the working professionals) unless in the sun! Once in the sun, you get a deep rainbow effect (like an oil slick, hence the name)! Want your hair brighter and more intense? With proper care, your NY Hair Stylist can lighten your hair to a blonde and apply the blue and green tones for a more “True to Color” look! Just remember, FASHION COLORS ARE THE HARDEST COLORS TO MAINTAIN. These colors will have you in the salon one to two times a month for refreshing appointments, so if you want to avoid fading, be sure to book every two to four weeks with your stylist for your appointment to keep your color looking as good as the day you first colored it!
7. The Shag: Shout out to the 70’s! The shag is back! Not to be confused with the Mullet, the shag is an extremely layered haircut with an overload of texture. Remember Joan Jett from the Runaways? Her hair cut is the perfect example! This haircut is so textured and layered that it’s perfect for anyone with extremely thick hair that hates the weight of it! Thin hair, beware! Too many layers can make your hair look even finer than before, so consult with your NY Hair Stylist about how short your shortest layer can be without thinning you out. Best way to style: Either rock your natural texture, using a wax or pomade (ask your stylist which products are perfect for you) to mess it up, adding more texture to it, OR flat iron with your favorite thermal protector and mess it up for more of a spiked layer with some wax products! It’s the perfect cut for the messy “just out of bed” look.
8. Black Light Hair: Who doesn’t love Black Light Parties? It’s time to take over the town with Black Light Hair! With a simple treatment service by the girls at NY Hair Company, your hair can glow under a black light! Bold is beautiful in 2017, so be ready to party with glowing hair! Want your hair to pop more than already possible? Add some neon, black light compatible, peek-a-boos to your hair for a more extreme glowing look! Schedule your hair appointment with your favorite NY Hair Specialist today!
9. Natural African Hair: For all of my curly haired beauties, DROP THE FLAT IRON AND BACK AWAY! It’s time to rock your natural curls in all of their glory! Natural texture is in, so stop the unnessicary damage to those beautiful curls! It’s time to strengthen your hair with an Olaplex and protein treatment and break up with the hot tools! Using the proper serum and curl lotion after washing, you can bring life back to your curls and say hello to the beautiful head of hair you were born with. Using the proper treatments and products, your curls can build up their strength and reduce breakage that comes naturally to curly hair texture. NY Hair Company carries Milkshake products that were made for curly hair and Matrix Oil Wonders Rose Oil collection made for fine or curly hair to reduce product build up. Consult with your stylist to see which line is perfect for you!
10. Hair Exfoliating Services: You may have noticed NY Hair Company is now carrying a new Biolage line called Sugar Shine as of late 2016. This line helps remove build up from styling products and protects your hair color! It’s important to cleanse your hair just like your skin to remove any build up, so 2017 has become the year for Hair Exfoliation! Using the Sugar Shine shampoo and conditioner, you can effectively cleanse your hair and prep it for styling! Use Sugar Shine spray when blowing out for added texture and hold without the weight of normal styling products. Bring life and airy texture back to your hair with Biolage Sugar Shine (available at NY Hair Company)!
Now that you have ten new hair trends to pick from, it’s time to schedule your hair appointment with the NY Hair Girls! Stay in style this year with a new look that the NY Hair Girls can show you how to replicate at home with the proper products and tools!

Extension Care

Extension Hair Care Instructions
1. Keep the hair clean. We suggest that you wash the hair at least once or twice a week with warm or cold water. Please wash the hair immediately after swimming, spa, exercise, and etc. When dirt and sweat accumulate, hair tangles. Too much leave-in conditioners and other hair care products will create a build up on the hair and will cause it to tangle faster. If the hair feels dry or heavy with build up, wash it with good shampoo & conditioner.
2. Before washing the hair, spray mixture of conditioner and water and brush the hair from bottom up. You must gradually wet the hair down and brush it gently before you completely wash the hair. If the hair is very dry and a lot of water is added at once, hair will swell up like sponge and tangle! Therefore, it is important to gradually wet the hair and brush it.
3. After wetting the hair, add shampoo and conditioner and brush thoroughly. Be sure to wash and brush the hair in one direction. Rinse the hair completely with water and towel dry. It is best to blow-dry with low to medium heat.
4. Make sure you brush the hair daily and apply some leave-in conditioners so that the hair is soft and moist. A good leave-in hair treatment can keep the hair from drying. But remember not to put too much otherwise there will be a build up and make the hair feel too heavy. If the hair feels too dry or heavy with too much hair care products, you should wash the hair completely by following steps 2 and 3.
5. When swimming, always wear a cap to prevent prolong exposure to chlorine or salt water which causes the hair to tangle. Always wash the hair right away with shampoo and conditioner after swimming in both types of water. When going to the spa, the hair should be brushed out completely and should be wrapped in a cold wet towel.
6. Make couple of big braids when going to sleep, swim, or exercise (please untangle the hair before making the braids). NEVER SLEEP ON WET HAIR. Make sure the hair is completely dry before going to bed.
7. You can also make a leave-in conditioner at home by diluting conditioner (10%) with water (90%). Apply the mixture lightly onto your hair and brush the hair from the end to the top near the scalp. Although it is important to apply leave-in conditioners to keep the hair from dryness, it is important to keep the hair clean by washing the hair about twice a week so that it will not create a build up.
8. It would be advisable NOT TO TINT, COLOR, PERM OR DO ANY EXTRA CHEMICAL PROCESSES because it has already been treated. Please be extra careful with blonde and other light colored hair. They are more chemically processed than the dark hair. Therefore, we will not be responsible for the outcome.

9. Please check the hair before you use the hair. Be certain that the hair texture, color, length, and quality are what you want. We will not be responsible for the hair if it is not in original condition. For the WET & WAVE hair such as the French Refined and the European Wave, you may test the curl by wetting a small portion away from the rest. Place the hair on a desk, pull a small portion away from the rest, spray some water, and let it soak for about 15 seconds. Hold the top of the hair while it is on the desk and gently brush the wet portion from the bottom and watch it wave. Towel dry and scrunch it to wave up more.

10.Some hair comes out from the wefts easier than others (e.g. silky hair). Although our wefts are double wefted and sewn over many times to minimize the shedding, it is machine done. If you need to cut the width of the weft to the size you need, make sure to mend the ends where it’s been cut. If it is not mended, hair can shed excessively.

Biotin and its benefits…

Biotin (also known as Biotine, Vitamin H, and is part of the B Vitamins) has multiple health benefits as well as “beauty benefits”. Biotin can break down certain substances in the body like carbs and fat, as it is a component of important enzymes your body (should) naturally collect through a healthy diet. Biotin deficiencies are not very common and are nearly impossible to diagnose, but there are multiple symptoms that can reveal themselves to let you know if your food diet is lacking this vitamin. Some symptoms include dry eyes, cracking on the sides of the mouth, hair loss, scaly skin, weak/brittle nails, exhaustion, hallucinations, and depression. Most people who have this deficiency are (but not limited to) Pregnant women, chronic smokers, alcoholics, those with Crohn’s disease and/or liver disease, prone to rapid weight loss, diabetics, and those with diets mainly consisting of processed foods.

Luckily, Biotin comes is capsule form! Taking the right dosage of biotin can be very beneficial. Biotin can strengthen your hair and nails by strengthening the cuticle. It can improve your skin of a variety of “problems” (acne, rashes, psoriasis, dermatitis, etc). Biotin supports your metabolism by breaking down foods and is found in many healthy foods (cooked eggs, egg yolks, soy, walnuts, whole grains, beans, etc). Need lower cholesterol? Biotin can help with that! It also helps regulate your blood sugar by lowering glucose levels when paired with chromium.

If you’re not getting enough biotin from your foods, biotin taken in capsule form can be purchased over the counter at any drug store and we carry it here at NY Hair Company!

Protecting your hair this Summer

Summer time in Vegas means swimming and enjoying the sunny skies to most, but for some it’s all about fighting with your hair to keep it in it’s best possible condition. The sun, heat, water (including pool chemicals) and more can damage your hair. There are ways to keep this from happening by using proper products at home and doing proper treatments at the salon. These are NY Hair Co’s favorites that we carry!

Biotin Pills: Biotin is a vitamin you can take orally to improve your hair and nail growth. It strengthens and thickens the hair and nails making it stronger.

(Available for Retail)

Biotin

Milk Shake Incredible Milk Leave in Conditioner: This leave in conditioner offers 12 benefits to you hair: Repairs all hair types, Frizz Control, Prevents Split Ends, Heat Protection, Long Lasting Hair Styles, Detangles, Natural Shine, Adds Body and Volume, Easier Ironing, Protects Color, Protects from UV Rays, Smoothes the Cuticle. It can go on wet or dry hair after showering (or even swimming!) Instead of using spray sunscrean to protect your hair, causing it to become greasy and smelly, you can use an actual hair product to protect your hair any time you go outside!

(Available for Retail)

MS Integrity Leave In

Matrix Biolage Dry Shampoo: Washing your hair every day not only dries your hair out but it also strips any artificial color, causing fading. Avoid washing more than twice a week for longer lasting color and healthier hair. To cut the greasy, dirty look you can use dry shampoo inbetween actual shampoos. This product absorbs oils and any odors that the oils may cause. It’s easy to use as well! Spray on the roots of your dry hair (focus on spots that are oily) and work in the product with your fingertips for best results. Viola! Simple and effective! Added bonus?? It creates lift and body to your roots giving your hairstyle the extra bump it may need!

(Available for Retail)

Biolage Dry Shampoo

Matrix Biolage Hydrasource Shampoo and Conditioning Balm: This is the Best Seller at NY Hair Co, and for good reason! This Shampoo and Conditioner Duo Set are BOTH Paraben free and extremely hydrating without making the hair feel greasy. They are both safe for color treated hair so you can get the moisture without the fading! The conditioning balm is a great conditioner and detangler. These products are formulated with Aloe, Cupuacu Butter, and Apricot Kernel Oils to moisturize your hair for long term results instead of using Parabans to coat your hair making it appear healthier temporarily.

(Available for Retail)

Biolage Hydrasource

Matrix Total Results Alternate Action Clarifying Shampoo: This clarifying shampoo is our favorite for one big reason; it removes product buildup WITHOUT stripping the hair of it’s natural oils. This product is perfect for swimmers, as it has a chelating agent that helps remove chlorine and other mineral deposits from the hair (added bonus for blondes, no more swimmer green hair!). Shampoo with this product for 1-2 minutes before rinsing to remove any buildup and follow with your favorite conditioner for best results!

(Available for Retail)

Matrix Alternate Action

Milk Shake Integrity Intensive Treatment: This intense mask with have your hair hydrated and bouncy in no time! Using Muru Muru Butter and Coconut Oil, this mask is safe for all hair types and significantly reduces frizz, leaves hair conditioned, detangles, and the end results are soft, radiant, and healthy hair.

(Available for Retail)

MS Integrity Mask

Matrix Color Gloss Treatment: The Matrix Color Gloss Treatment is a zero lift, ammonia free hair treatment that adds ceramides/proteins and natural shine back the your hair while sealing the cuticle. This treatment also comes in a few color refreshers (black, browns, reds, coppers, and special toners for blondes) to add to your treatment to add pigment to your hair while improving the overall health. Normally this service at NY Hair Co starts at $45, but when done with any other service the price drops to $35. Results last from 1-3 months depending on proper home care and product use.

(Available as a Service Only)

Color Gloss

Olaplex Treatment: Olaplex is the only product scientifically proven AND holds multiple patents proving it physically rebonds your hair internally. Think of this service like this: you shatter your wrist. You can either get surgery and have your wrist heal completely with no loss of mobility and will fully heal OR you can just get a cast, and MAYBE your wrist will have partial mobility. Wouldn’t you want the surgery?? Olaplex is basically surgery for your hair! This product is silicone free (unlike its impersinators like B3, Uberliss, etc which all contail oils and different forms of silicone) so it doesn’t coat the hair for a temporary fix. It fixes the bonds (even when added to color services!) for long term effects, can be done as often as you’d like (you can’t over-do Olaplex!!), and all it does is benefit your hair. Want to transform your haircolor? Olaplex helps us push your hair past the norm, getting you desired results with little to no damage! Each treatment costs $45, so why not fix your hair for a fraction of the price of other treatments that claim they do the same, but really don’t?

(Availabe as a Service Only, Take Home #3 Conditioner is available)

Beards and Beard Care

For all our gentlemen who rock a beard and all our ladies who love a man with a beard, this is for you! How to keep a beard healthy and growing! Beards are hair and need to be maintained just like the hair on your scalp. If you want a glorious, long, Viking/Biker beard you have to take care of it so it won’t get dry, brittle, and shed an outrageous amount.

Trimming a beard:

Just like your hair, your beard can get split ends, dry, brittle, oily, etc so it is important to treat it the same as the hair on your head. Regular beard trims will reduce the split ends, keeping your beard healthy and making it easier (and without the breakage, appear to grow faster!) to grow a nice, full beard.

Keeping a beard clean:

Just like your hair, you need to shampoo and condition your beard. So much bacteria gathers in your beard, and if you don’t wash it regularly it will just multiply (yuck!). Shampooing with cleanse your beard of any buildup on the hair strands, and regular conditioning will help your beard with the softness (with beard hair being so brittle, you won’t see a huge difference right away like you see on he hair from your scalp) and keep it moisturized to reduce the brittle feeling and weak links that cause breakage. After shampooing, use a wide tooth comb to pick through the conditioner to make sure it is saturated on every strand to see optimal results.

Beard treatments, anyone?

Just like your hair, you can treat your beard as well!! My personal favorite beard treatment is the Olaplex Standalone Treatment! Olaplex is used to multiply the bonds in your hair shaft (this is the ONLY product that can do this. Any other claims by different products are lies) without coating it in oils, waxes, or/and paraffin (those make it appear soft and silky till a few washes, then it returns to the same texture as before). Not only will this make your beard stronger, but over time it will make it easy to manage! (Normally $45 for a treatment on your head, but for beards it’s $25)

Another treatment I love for beards is a deep conditioning detox service. This service consists of a clarifying shampoo (especially good for the outdoors men who get a lot of dirt, grease, sweat, etc buildup) followed up with a deep penetrating conditioning treatment. This will help supply moisture and proteins your hair needs to maintain it’s health. (Normally $20 for a treatment but only $10 for beards)

My favorite conditioner for beards: Biolage has two conditioners I love for coarse and/or curly hair. One is Biolage Hydrating Balm (we carry three sizes ranging from $20-$55) and the other is the Biolage Exquisite Oil conditioner ($22).

Remember to take care of your beard because it’s just like the hair on your head!!! You shouldn’t wash your hair with bar soap, so why would you wash your beard with it???
