We’ve heard all about the ‘Alexa’ (a short, ‘bronde’, low-maintenance crop) being hot in the New Year, but what else can we look forward to sporting?
Maria Ardino of Ardino Hair and Beauty in Paddington, Sydney, dropped by bh recently to give us a sneak peak into her twenty-ten hair predictions…
What is your prediction for hot hairstyles in 2010?
Fresh off the spring /summer international runways, I’m loving the Lanvin look this season: hair tied up tight and high with a teased loose-look bun. The contrast between the beachy, teased bun with a structured shape is very cool.
For lighter-haired girls, cool violet and platinum blonde is in. And for brunettes? A few lighter balayage pieces that have a slatey feel are hot for 2010.
For length in 2010 it’s all about growing out fringes and ending up with mid-length hair.
How can we ensure our hair is beach ready for the holiday season?
To ensure hair is beach ready and survives the harsh conditions of an Aussie summer (i.e. sun and salt), it’s all about protection and prevention. The best precaution methods are to use a slightly deeper gloss to allow for fading colour followed by colour-extend treatments and masks. Redken has some amazing products suitable for this.
Let’s goss about glossing! How does glossing work? How long does it last?
Ardino clients are addicted to glossing. It works like a semi-permanent [colour], however it can have either no colour pigment or a slight colour pigment.
If you don’t want any colour, we apply a clear gloss so it gives you incredible shine – allowing clients the glossy shine you get from colouring your hair without actually colouring it. This is a perfect solution for girls who want to keep their natural colour. Glossing is also an incredible way to finish colours and works best in conjunction with a treatment.
Glossing is custom made for the individual, lasting up to fifteen shampoos.
