Putting the oomph and volume back into your hair doesn’t mean you have to make a drastic change. Sometimes, all it takes is a change in shampoo or a haircut to achieve the full, dimensional hairstyle. Visit us here at Salon Antoine when you’re ready so we can pamper you and see you walk out of our doors with the look you’ve been dying to rock. We are located at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA, and can’t wait to see you!
A haircut – radical or subtle – can completely add luster and dimension back into your hair. If you don’t know which haircut to go with – not to worry, we’ve got you covered. One clear winner to try is the angled bob. Whether you get a longer bob that grazes your shoulders or an inverted bob, you’re bound to put life back into your hair and accent your gorgeous eyes since the cut is so face-framing. If you’re currently strutting longer hair, then you might consider longer layers, which add texture and personality. You can also opt for short layers. If you have thin and dull hair, these layers will provide the illusion of body and give you that new vibrant ‘do that will turn heads your way soon as you step out of the house. Plus, whether you style your layers in waves, curls, or show off the length by straightening, you can’t go wrong! For all your risk-taking ladies, you might even go as far as getting the pixie cut. This gorgeous, modern short haircut lets you vary your length and is ultimately voluminous. Whether you decide to simply tousle it or throw in a curl here and there, your volume will be the envy of the town. Also, throwing in some highlights or thinking about adding bangs can’t hurt and will transform you in a new woman with a killer confidence!
Choosing the Right Shampoo
You might be surprised, but your shampoo choice can do wonders for your hair. While many shampoos weigh down your hair and leave residue, volume shampoos do the opposite. They thoroughly wash your locks and don’t add that access weight you don’t want. Finding the right shampoo for that total fulness can be hard, but ask us here at Salon Antoine, and we’ll be more than happy to recommend one that will keep your hair defined and give you bounce. The right shampoo can also keep your hair soft, hydrated, and provide a healthy scalp altogether. Sometimes, it just takes one wash to see a difference! If you’re someone who doesn’t like to wash their hair multiple times a week, think about using a total lifesaver: dry shampoo. When you’re pressed for time or too tired to wash your hair, dry shampoo can make all the difference. Just one spray and you’ll be walking into the office with refreshed locks and incredible thickness! For little to medium volume, or if you’re going for ultimate oomph, you can flip your hair and spray all over for more texture and volume. Before you know it, this product will be your best friend and go-to!
Ditch the Heat
We’re all guilty of constantly curling, straightening, and blow-drying our hair, but this can do a lot of damage to our hair. Going natural and avoiding these components will put life back into your hair and trust us, you won’t be disappointed with the end result. You can get your ideal hairstyle without ever adding heat. When you want some curls or waves, you can simply twist pieces of your hair around your fingers, add some hairspray, and voila! When you want to pin back your hair while still showing off the dimension and flawless look, just throw in some bobby pins. Everything from your hair, to your eyes, to your make-up will be getting attention left and right. Last, but definitely not least, braids can make any hairstyle stunning. Whether you do a big full braid around the head, simply braid your long bangs and pull them around, or a partial fishtail and let the rest of the hair fall down, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. The world is your oyster, girl!
