Managing Frizzy Hair

Managing Frizzy Hair

Frizz is something that someone wishes they had but for those with naturally frizzy hair, they want to control their hair.  Controlling frizzy hair isn’t easy if you don’t know how.  But we have gathered some of the best tips from the best hairstylists on how to make sure your hair is manageable.

Managing Frizzy Hair

Hydrate Your Hair

Your hair gets the frizziest when it is dry.  In order to prevent dryness, make sure that you thoroughly wash your hair.  However, it isn’t just about the washing process.  Using hair moisturizer or shampoo/conditioner with moisturizer and hydrating ingredients will superpower your hair.  Sulfate-based hair products should be avoided though, as they will further dry out your hair.

Apply Treatment

The shower isn’t the only place you can ensure the miniaturization of your hair.  After you get out of the shower, finish off your hair routine with a cream.  There are a variety of creams available for moisturizing and/or styling hair.  You can also use anti-frizz serums to help keep the hair manageable.  Coconut oil is a great option if you want to use a non-chemical option.

Heat is Not Your Friend

Dry hair is not the friend of frizzy hair management.  We have already mentioned that but will continue to do so.  But here we will talk about heat.  Straighteners that use heat to manage your hair will remove moisture from your hair and those dry it out.  Heat can also damage your hair.

Balance Your Haircare

Finding a balance in taking care of your hair is important.  You don’t want to overdo any one step.  Frizzy hair owners should be at most two times a week.  This will help to keep your hair clean and hydrate, while not removing the natural moisture from your hair.

Don’t forget to get your regular hair touch-up!  The regular hairstyling will help you to get rid of split ends that help to cause frizzy hair.  The more attention you pay to your frizzy hair, the easier it will be to manage.  You don’t have to suffer through the difficulties of managing your hair!

How To Hide Awkward Stage Hair

How To Hide Awkward Stage Hair

It happens to everyone at least once, in life, they hit an awkward stage of their hair growth.  People have probably told you during those stages that you should cut the hair at a hair salon in Ottawa.  Cutting your hair means that you won’t get the final hairstyle that you want.  Let’s take a look at how you can get the hairstyle that you want and hide the awkward hair stage.


First, you need to make the decision that you want to grow your hair out.  If you are uncertain about your hair, people will likely convince you that you need to cut your hair.  By making the decision and confirming it with yourself, you will know that it is what you want and it won’t be easy for someone to sway you.

Some people like to hide their awkward hair with a hat.  This only works during some times of the years and it can often be awkward to wear a hat around.  Let’s take a look at a better option.

Another option for you is to go to a hair salon in Ottawa.  Tell the hair stylist what your end goal is and they can give you their recommendations for how you can achieve that goal while remaining stylish.  Often this means that you have your hair trimmed.  With a quick trim, it can often help your hair to take on a much better appearance.  Even with a regular trim, your hair can still grow.

A hair stylist can also teach you things that you can do with your hair in order style it.  They can teach you different things to do with your hair such as ponytails, straightening, using hair spray and more.  The benefit of going to a hair stylist for this is that they can give you personalized tips and ideas.

What is The Procedure For A Brazilian Wax

What is The Procedure For A Brazilian Wax

A Brazilian Wax is a style of waxing that removes all of the hair from the pubic region.  Many people wonder what the procedure for a Brazilian wax is though.  We have crafted this article to answer that question for you.  Read on to find out.

Before You Get There

Before you go to your Brazilian Waxing appointment make sure that your body is clean.  No one is a pinnacle of perfection but don’t go to your Brazilian Wax after the gym without showering (just an example).  Don’t drink alcohol or caffeine beforehand as it will make the process more painful.

What You Need To Do

The number one thing that you need to do during a Brazilian Wax is work with the technician.  They will ask you to hold your body in specific positions and to not do certain things.  Working with the technician might be hard the first time as some of the tasks may seem unusual but it will make the process less painful and easier if you work with them.

What Will Happen

When you first enter the treatment room the technician will ask you questions about what specifically you want.  As we mentioned above, a Brazilian Wax is performed on the pubic region.  Some people do not want all of the hair removed.  For example, a common request is for a landing strip (small rectangle towards the genitals) or a triangle.

A lot of technicians start the waxing process by applying baby powder to the area being treated.  This is to help lower the irritation during and after the treatment.  It also helps to prevent hot wax from sticking to the skin.  After this, the technician will remove excess hair.  Removal can be done with either a set of electric trimmers or trimming scissors.

Wax is applied using a spatula to one strip of area.  A special cloth strip is then quickly stuck to the wax and pulled away.  The faster the treatment is done, the less pain and more hair removed.  This is done until all areas are treated.  Some technicians will follow-up treatment with a gel or lotion.



2017 is a new year with a lot of speculation of what it will bring.  With the new year, you probably want a new appearance, that means new hair styles. Hair salons in Guelph have found some of the hair styles that we expect will trend during the 2017 year.

Long Half Wave

For long hair in 2017 we think that you will like to have a half straight, half wave style.  Part your hair down the middle and then straighten it to the end.  Using the curler of your choice, start halfway down your hair and curl your hair.  This will leave you with a very stylish long hair doo.

High Pony Tail

Near the end of 2016, the high ponytail started to come back into popularity.  Start by straightening your hair.  Take your hair up to the top of your head and create a ponytail.  This creates a very natural look but also one that is stylish.

80’s Short Hair

The classic 80’s short haircut is already showing signs of coming back.  The hair comes down to the jaw line and it gets longer as it continues to the front of the head.  The bangs come just short of touching your eyebrows.

Messy Surfer

This hairstyle is very easy to achieve.  Take your hair and fuss it around.  You should come out looking like a surfer with your hair going in ways that it doesn’t normally.  This hairstyle looks best with shoulder length hair but can be used with any length hair.

The Ballerina Bun

Capturing your hair in a ballerina bun has been seen worn by multiple celebrities so far in 2017.  Take a high and low ponytail and wrap them around each other to become a bun.  Secure the bun with bobby pins.  To make the hair extra stylish, use a glossy cream before starting on the doo.

Belted Pony Tail

Celebrities have brought on this very childlike hair into style.  Take your hair and make a ponytail.  Instead of using a hair band, use a belt to keep it in place.  Having your hair straightened and shined beforehand can contribute well to this look.
