Porter magazine’s Newby Hands on Zoltan’s services 03 2017

In the below article Newby Hands Beauty Director of Edit and Porter magazines mentions about Zoltan’s services in her recent article, see the last (highlighted) paragraph

 

beautifully SIMPLE

 

If you ’re drowning under information overload about the products, the methods, the treatments relax Newby Hands unpacks all you need to know to stay beautiful and sane..

When did it all get so complicated?

From being something that was a fun and often practical part of our lives, beauty regimes seem to have become increasingly baffling. Do we really need to know the intricacies of shaping, contouring and draping (it’s the new contouring by the way) when the reality is that most of us are still looking for a foundation that stays put and a mascara that doesn’t smudge As for skincare, between cocktailing our serums (fiddly, I know, but it works), layering and stepmasking (the peel, the serum, the moisturizer), it’s amazing we have time to run families, homes and businesses. What we all need are beauty routines that make life easier, ones that slot into the reality of your everyday and help streamline your life with solutions rather than overcomplicating it with confusing regimes. When life gets busy, beauty seems to be the one area that many women factor out, not in, which, believe me, is a mistake, as something that initially seems unimportant, compared to, say, preparing a presentation or organizing an event, can later take on disproportionate importance. Recently, a high-flying but despondent friend of mine called; she had just returned from an economic summit where she was the keynote speaker, but any sense of success was >

 

This is not about vanity, but rather instilling confidence by being prepared so you never get caught out again. As one colleague puts it, ‘It’s exhausting living in a last-minute panic’”

>overshadowed by the fact that as she walked towards the podium all she could think about was the spotlights picking out her root re-growth. “I’d prepared in every other way but this totally swept away my confidence. It hadn’t seemed important before, but at that moment it was all that mattered.” Other women I’ve spoken to report losing their thread mid-presentation when they notice how unkempt their nails look and how much they want to hide them. Why, they ask themselves in anguish, didn’t I book in for a manicure? This is not about vanity, but rather instilling confidence by being prepared so you never get caught out again. As one colleague whose evenings are taken up with events puts it, “It’s exhausting living in a last-minute panic.” Prioritize what matters and, if you are not already doing so, start to block-book rolling appointments for hair color, manicures, blow outs and waxing. One friend who travels extensively advises booking two appointments, a few days apart: “That way if I have to cancel one I always have a back-up. It’s one less thing to think about. ” Over the years, I too have developed my own ‘back-up’ – a list of the treatments to book and the products to never run out of because they provide the best solutions to those beauty problems that would otherwise be one more thing to worry about. These are what I constantly share with others who also seek to streamline their lives. While some may not be relevant to your specific needs, others can be game changers. For those of you who rely on regular three- to six-weekly color appointments, you need to know about Color Wow Root Cover Up, a genius mineral powder that covers roots or can even add natural-looking highlights to tide you over after a missed appointment – and it lasts between shampoos.

Although it may have received some bad press over the years, I cannot recommend highly enough a good (and there are many bad) Brazilian Blow Dry treatment. When done by a professional (my best advice is going to someone who only does this treatment and has done so for several years – most good salons now have a specialist on staff), it can transform frizzy, fluffy and bleach-puffy hair into a new sleek and manageable state. It can also dramatically improve the condition of your hair, as I have found after seeing Zoltan Vargyai (zoltan-hair.com) for the last six years. Plus, it frees up both your time – as blow outs are much faster – and your mind from the constant worry of being caught out by rain or humidity.

What is Keraplex hair treatment?

What is a Keraplex hair treatment, and how does it work?

In the UK more and more people talking about Keraplex hair and wondering is it work, and what’re the differences to a usual keratin treatment?

Keraplex is a hybrid treatment a combination of two amazing stand-alone services:

  1. Olaplex bond building treatment
  2. keraSWIFT keratin repair and smoothing treatment

 

Using two unique treatments, which improves the hair condition so much we left with long lasting beautiful hair for months.

What are the two treatments in Keraplex?

Olaplex is a bond building treatment, it strengthens your hair internally it’s only a few years old technology which allows it te repair and reconnects broken sulphate bonds in the hair. It works amazingly as an added to technical services e.g. bleaching and colour or perms and straightening.

KeraSWIFT

other keratin treatments

 

To read and find out a little more about Olaplex Bond Building technology click here.

The treatment combination works and can improve hair condition. I personally find that doing the treatments first an Olaplex Bond Building then any type of Keratin treatment will give you better results as your hair will be stronger, and in better condition. My costumers saying that in some ways it extends the results of the keratin treatment.

Nowadays I tend to separate the treatments and only offer Keraplex or Zolaplex when my costumers do not have time to visit the salon regurlalry. If they are able to make two separate visits first for a Keratin treatment and then a stand alone Olaplex treatment I find that results are slightly better. It is important that there are some Keratin treatments if Olaplex applied after the Keratin treatment it does need a few weeks wait for Oleplex to be able to penetrate to the hair properly.

It is important that we apply Olplex first and Keratin treatment second,  there are some Keratin treatments if Olaplex applied after the Keratin treatment it does need a few weeks wait for Oleplex to be able to penetrate to the hair properly.

 

To perform the Keraplex treatment it usually takes around 3/4 hour longer than your usual Keratin treatment. My Zolaplex adds around 1 hour and 15 minutes to the Keratin treatment time. The treatment lasts as long as the Keratin treatments do.  Depending on the hair it is recommended in some cases to repeat an Olaplex treatment before the next Keraplex treatment.

Note to US readers:

There is also a US company called Keraplex Inc producing a Keratin treatment called Keraplex which does not contain bond building or Olaplex. I have never tested or tried the product so I am unable to comment on the quality and the results achieved by this treatment.

The 10 Sleekest Hair Texture Looks From London Fashion Week SS 2017

The 10 Sleekest Hair Texture Looks From London Fashion Week SS 2017

The 10 Sleekest Hair Looks From London Fashion Week SS17

We turn to London Fashion Week for the latest hair inspiration. Featuring the spring/summer 2017 collections meant hair was left appearing quite natural, tresses needed to have a healthy shine and have some movement on the runway.

This season the fringe dominated the catwalk. The hair fell either right below or right above the modelseyebrows and the weight was on point it wasnt too whispy or too thick there were no stringy, greasy fringes here, it was pure gloss. To get the look, we offer fringe straightening (check it out here.)

See the sleekest hairstyles seen on London Fashion Week runways, we have rounded up everything from Burberry to J.W, Anderson.

 

J.W. Anderson.

 

BURBERRY

It was all about the centre part. Hair was either left straight, had a very natural wave to it, or was slicked back into a ponytail. Overall the hair didnt detract from the clothes, it was effortless and thats why its a winner.

J.W. ANDERSON

J.W. Anderson mastered the fringe in his intimate show. For the girls who didnt have the crowning cut, the hair was parted to the side and it fell slightly to the side to mock side bangs.

 

 

 

FAUSTINE STEINMETZ

The models hair cascaded over her shoulder as she laid down posing for Faustine Steinmetzs presentation. The shiny hair was about as light reflecting as the Swarovski crystals adorning the garments.

MARY KATRANTZOU

Mary Katrantzous glossy locks had movement on her runway. The centre part formed a curtain of

hair around the models face, and her locks were blown backwards from the power of her strut.

 

 

 

 

EMILIA WICKSTEAD

Dorothy skipping down the yellow brick road with her embarrassing child-like pigtails had nothing on the girls on Emilia Wicksteads yellow catwalk. Their lightweight effortlessly wavy hair freely bounced behind them as they walked.

ROKSANDA

The hair was secured back behind the models ears, drawing attention to the big summer shades veiling their eyes. Parted to the side, you could see the hair was carefully brushed into its smooth streamlined shape.

BELSTAFF

The lovely Liv Tyler was at Belstaffs London Fashion Week presentations to present the new Belstaff x Liv Tyler capsule collection. All the girls modelling, including Liv Tyler, donned glamorous silky waves.

MULBERRY

Despite the number of times we saw a fringe and the eu natural tresses this season, Mulberry managed to make the look appear fresh. Even with a fringe the hair tucked was tucked behind just one of the girls ears, making here appear quite youthful. The key here was the barely there makeup. Wearing heavier makeup with a fringe can quickly turn your from school girl to vixen.

 

 

PETER PILOTTO

The modelshair hung straight down their backs to revealing their collar bones in the off-the-shoulder blouses. The naturally shiny, wavy hair looked, wellnatural, which isnt always so easy to accomplish.

ANTONIO BERARDI
Goldie Locks would be jealous of the brilliant blonde manes on Antonio Berardi’s spring runway – you can’t help but imagine the sun catching the girls’ glossy hair!

Skin test before perm, hair smoothing or hair straightening

In the past few years the UK hairdressers heard a lot of the importance of skin testing before all colour applications. Major manufacturers and the federation have asked the colour technicians to skin test 48 hours before every colour application. L’Oreal launched a website www.becoloursafe.com to promote skin testing before colouring services.

I was wondering if there are any regulations for skin testing before perming, smoothing or straightening the services what I offer.

11890982_10153394092056321_3040375776981493072_n

I’ve checked with most major manufacturers in the UK and they do not recommend skin testing pre perm, smoothing or straightening services. After calling the National Hairdressing Federation they advised that they don’t recommend to carry or don’t carry out a skin test pre perm, pre smoothing or pre straightening appointments, however they strongly advise to contact the manufacturer to clarify their requirements.

Just in case I spoke to my lawyer who said I have to check with my insurers and see their requirements. My insurers do not need me to carry out a skin test prior the services I offer.

exc-5475c73be4b04be9a4ac50ce

exc-5475c73be4b04be9a4ac50ce

If you a hairstylist I would recommend you to check manufacturers instructions and your insurers requirements regarding the need of carrying out skin testing prior perming, smoothing or straightening services. If you a customer and wish to have a skin test you should freely ask your technician.

IF YOU DECIDE TO CARRY OUT AN ALLERGY TEST, IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU ALWAYS PERFORM AN ALLERGY ALERT TEST 48 HOURS BEFORE EACH USE OF A  PRODUCT, AS AN ALLERGY CAN DEVELOP SUDDENLY, EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVE PREVIOUSLY USED THE SAME PRODUCT OR ANOTHER BRAND.

To carry out the Allergy Alert Test, always follow the instructions supplied with your product.

HOW TO PERFORM THE ALLERGY ALERT TEST:

Remove earrings. Behind the ear and using a cotton bud, apply a small quantity of unmixed product /solution 1 and neutraliser in separate area/ product sufficient to cover an area of 1-2cm² (e.g. the size of a small coin).
Re-apply two or three times allowing it to dry between each application. Carefully reseal the product container and keep it for the application 48 hours later.
Leave for 48 hours without washing, covering or touching.
If during this period you notice any abnormal reactions, such as itching, redness or swelling in or around the test area, DO NOT APPLY THE PRODUCT.

IN CASE OF A REACTION DURING THE APPLICATION such as intense stinging, irritation, rash or burning sensation on the scalp, rinse immediately and discontinue use. If you experience shortness of breath, seek immediate medical attention. Before perming / straightening your hair again, consult a doctor.
IF, DURING THE DAYS FOLLOWING APPLICATION, itching, redness or, spots on the scalp or skin occurs, swelling of the eyes and/or face, blisters or oozing of the scalp and/or skin occurs, it is recommended that you consult a doctor.
