The summer heat is rolling in, and we at Studio Savvy know that everyone is looking for a quick fix to the never ending question: “What do I do with my hair?!” Never fear, the Glam Squad is here! And we’ve got some tips for you!

FullSizeRender FullSizeRender (3)

  • back comb the base of your hair (top Mohawk section to crown area) this section can be secured in a pony tail or a braid or just pinned and left down
  • braid the 2 front sections of your hair (areas on either side of your face, the hair from your hair line to right behind the ear) and secure each braid with an elastic
  • the remaining hair can be left down, or pulled back into a pony or a bun or a braid
  • the braids on either side of the hair can then be wrapped around the pony, bun or braid, pinned up to create a Mohawk effect, or simply left down.

These directions are meant to serve as more of a guideline for a fun summer style, but can definitely be modified or played with to create your own unique style.

IMG_9351

TIP: Black Ribbon Trend: make any pony, bun or braid more interesting by adding a black ribbon. The ribbon can be simply tied in a knot and the ribbon left hanging or tied into an elegant bow. The ribbon can be tied around an elastic or be used as an embellishment at the end of a pony or braid.

Studio Savvy also would like to remind everyone that it is time to start thinking about what hat you’re going to wear to Opening Day! Studio Savvy has the hats you need in ALL price ranges. Note: it will be first come, first serve with the hats we have in the salon so make sure to come out soon to ensure you get the hat you LOVE!

We also are looking forward to being featured in both Ranch and Coast and FINE Magazine in the month of July! Please make sure to check it out!!

As always fashionistas, if you have any questions on our fun summer hairstyles suggested above, please do not hesitate to ask your stylist the next time you are in. And stay savvy on our Studio Savvy adventures on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and our blog!

  • up styles, whether it’s braiding, twisting, or knotting, should guarantee your style to last even through your best moves on the dance floor

Savvy Summer Hair

SummerhairLooking forward to the warm, sunny weather that comes with summer, but dreading the dull, brittle, and even frizzy hair that comes along with it?  Never fear, Studio Savvy is here! And we’ve got some weapons in our arsenal that can help combat any hair problems you may encounter this summer.

Most of you know about the Powerdose treatments we offer here, but some of you may not, so we’ll break it down for all of you. The Powerdose features core-to-surface technology to target all areas of the hair strand, delivering deep-conditioning and shine. Protein molecules dive inside the hair and fill “potholes” to strengthen, while ceramides close the cuticle on the outside to smooth. This treatment offers instant repair, reconstructing and rehydrating fragile, lifeless hair making the hair look and feel soft, shiny and healthy for UP TO 8 weeks (depending on the condition of the existing hair).

Olaplex is another service we offer here at Studio Savvy, it is the only product of its kind and the entire beauty industry has been buzzing about it for a while now. Contrary to popular belief, Olaplex is NOT a conditioning treatment–conditioners are cosmetic, but Olaplex works internally to cross link bonds that have been broken. Olaplex offers both in-salon and at-home treatment options. It allows us to rebuild the strength, structure, and integrity of the hair. Olaplex will relink bonds that are broken during chemical services and immediately strengthen the hair—but it’s not just for people who have chemical services done, it can be used on any client. Olaplex is a great way to sustain the structure of the hair, leaving the hair feeling soft, manageable, and reducing breakage. The best part about it? Even if you stop using Olaplex, the disulfide link is permanent—bonds that have been created won’t break and then cause the hair to break!

The biggest weapon we have in our armory is the Global Keratin Smoothing treatment for all you curly, wavy, frizzy haired clients out there. GK penetrates the cuticle of the hair to improve texture, enhance manageability and reduce frizz. This treatment does not straighten the hair, it will not remove all of the natural curl but it does smooth out wave and curl while eliminating frizz, repairing damage, and delivering shine. Global Keratin penetrates the hair shaft delivering important conditioning and moisturizing benefits which in turn, improves softness and reduces friction, enabling hair to better withstand heat, making the hair less prone to breakage. One of our favorite parts about this treatment is that it reduces drying time, making the hair more manageable for you to style at home—or not! It allows you to air dry your hair, which is a great option for all of our busy lifestyles, and it lasts anywhere from 3-5 months!

We hope this bit of information has made you even more hopeful and excited for the upcoming summer months, and washed any worries away concerning the abuse your hair might take. Make sure to ask your stylist about any one of these treatments and what the right option is to get you summer ready! And as always, you can keep up on all of the Glam Squad’s fashion adventures on our blog, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram!

PMDeenaKylaPMGroup2 PMAllModels

Studio Savvy is ecstatic to share with all of you how wonderful our experience at Paul Mitchell the School San Diego was. And as promised, we have many pictures to share from our event. As guest artists, we were able to share our knowledge and our skills with these new and curious members of our hair world. Deena did a phenomenal job, not only at demonstrating and explaining a beautiful haircut on one of our own, Kyla, but also at leading the discussion in such a graceful yet very fun, inspirational manner. Kassidy was great in explaining her color application as well as touching on certain tips and tricks she recommends to any colorist in the business. Victoria and Brooke did an awesome job not only on the physical presentation of their up styles, but also in explaining their techniques in how to achieve a similar look, as well as interacting with the students and Deena and Kassidy to keep the presentation entertaining and educational. We are all so proud of each other and the hard work we have put into making this a great experience for the future professionals at Paul Mitchell, and for ourselves. Please, stay tuned for our next Glam Squad adventure!
