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!

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???

About Olaplex! Our favorite tool for hair coloring

“IT’S A NEW SALON SERVICE
Go Blonder. Push the envelope further without compromising the integrity of hair. From the photo shoot to the salon chair, colorists are set free from the fear of damaged hair.
You can use Olaplex as a tool or a new service. The choice is yours. As a tool, use the Olaplex Bond Multiplier No.1 adding it to lightener or color and finish by applying Bond Perfector No.2 after color is rinsed from the hair to dramatically reduce breakage with every color service.
WHAT IS THIS STUFF…OLAPLEX?
The ORIGINAL chemistry that multiplies bonds and cross-links broken bonds. There can only be one!
We started by finding two of the world’s leading PHD’s in Materials and Chemistry that had never worked on hair products before, Dr. Eric Pressly and Dr. Craig Hawker. With this fresh outlook, this dream team invented a single ingredient chemistry, that is free of silicone or oils, that links broken bonds in the hair during and after chemical services making them stronger than they were before. It may all sound like the same old mumbo jumbo, but check out what top colorists are saying about Olaplex all over social media. As they say, the proof is in the pudding.”

The cost of your stylist

I’m sure most of you have seen the “yard sale” sites on Facebook with people asking for cheap people to do their hair (color, cuts, waxing, nails, etc). Many times there will be comments from stylists saying cheap isn’t a good thing, so I wanted to elaborate on that a little more.
– Why salons charge so much: Licensed stylists pay over $20,000 in most states to get their Cosmetology Licenses, plus supply costs, additional training class costs, etc. If they only charge $10 for a hair cut and $30 for color, it will take a VERY long time to just pay off everything they have spent to get their licensing and additional education that can take years. One stylist I’ve talked to put it very plainly, “I don’t go to your work telling your boss to pay you less, so why are you telling me to charge you less? I have bills to pay just like everyone else.”
2. While in school, licensed cosmetologists not only learn how to enhance their client’s outer appearance, but we learn proper sanitation to prevent the spread of disease and infection. If you have never seen how bad MRSA can get (it can kill you too!!), feel free to google MRSA Infections. It’s not pretty. And that’s not the only thing that can get spread with tools not properly sanitized. Aids/HIV is another big problem with not properly sanitized tools. The last thing anyone would ever want to happen is to save $10 on a cut and end up with a disease for life.
3. We guarantee our work!! Working at NY Hair Company has taught me that my clients matter more than rushing people in and out to make a little extra cash from squeezing in one more color service into my day. Nothing is better than seeing my clients walk out the door with a smile on their face (I love the hugs and happy tears too!!) and always wanting to come back. Loyal clients stay loyal because we work our butts off to make sure we can get your hair, make-up, skin, etc closest to your desired look without jeopardizing the integrity of your hair.
4. We use the best professional products (in our opinion. Everyone likes different lines, but we love our Matrix!!) because it’s better for your hair! The reason we don’t use box color (even with a professional name on it like Sebastian) is because most of them are either extremely damaging (too high of a developer, which is VERY unnecessary, or metallic colors, which can make it almost impossible to change your hair color without frying it off or turning into a muddy green tone). Haven’t you noticed most boxed colors have an oil to add into it when mixing? It’s a buffer to try and reduce damage from using the cheap products on them.
5. Youtube may have some AMAZING tutorials, but if you know nothing about hair besides what you learned on Youtube, chances are getting the outcome you wanted without ruining your hair is nearly impossible. Youtube home hair coloring fails and you’ll see some crazy things. There is no guarantee you or someone else can recreate the look you’re going for. A color starts at $65 at the shop I’m in. A color correction on the other hand starts at $85 an hour. You may only be in the chair for two hours, you may be in it for 10! In the long run, a cheap hair color could end up costing you anywhere from 2-10 times more than you paid for it in the first place.
You wear your hair every day, and you should love it!!
