A new client with thick, naturally wavy hair came in this week with approximately 1″ of regrowth and chunky highlights done on the top of her head and underneath around her nape for when she wore her hair up.

A new base color one level lighter than what she previously had been wearing was chosen to soften her look and bring out her light brown eye color. After processing the new base color, a full head of small weaved highlights were done due to her hair’s thickness to brighten up the entire head and blend in the chunkier highlights on the top. Her color service was followed up with Olaplex for 15 minutes & a protein/moisture conditioner for 5 minutes.

At the styling chair, a leave-in color saver was applied followed by Aquage SeaExtend silkening oil treatment and straightening ultragel. Her hair was blown-dry straight and lightly flat ironed before finishing off her haircut dry with a “Clavicut” style. The Clavicut style can be tailored to face shape and hair type ~ worn straight, wavy or curly. The longest layers of this cut graze the clavicle and this collarbone-skimming style is fast becoming the hairstyle of choice for all ages due to its functionality and ease. With this style, she will be able to wear her hair down without it weighing her down and her up-do styles will still be very romantic.

Color & haircut by, Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

This is a client who is a working professional and travel enthusiast. She wanted to grow her hair out “one last time” to see how it would look. The day came and she had enough of her long hair and told me to do anything I wanted! Well … it did come with some requests…. She ask me to leave it long enough to to pull it up as well a have versatility and style when she wore it down and she wanted her hairline grey to be minimized so as not to show within a few weeks of growing out. I began with her color – two inches around her face was zig-zagged out and a shade lighter than the rest of her base color that I use on the rest of her head was applied to minimize her hairline grey showing to quickly. A full head of highlights then was done to give her a dimensional, brighter look and add body to her fine hair. For her haircut, I decided that a combination of a  “Lob” & “Swag” would be the desired look for her. Enough length was removed and layers were added to still allow for her hair to be styled up as well as worn down straight or curled. Light “curtain” bangs softened her forehead. (not shown).

Below are the before & afters. (Click on picture for a larger view)

Color Enhancement ~ Richer, Shinier Hair

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Blow-dry Hairstyling, Color make-over, fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, make-overs, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

This is a client who came in with natural “mousy” brown hair color. She wanted it to “pop”, look richer, healthier, shinier AND not have a commitment to coloring it regularly. I did a full head, fine low-lighting technique with a dark, chocolate red brown color and added Olaplex to her color service. Olaplex is a professional product that reconnects the broken disulfide sulfur bonds in the hair that are broken during chemical services. Olaplex is free of silicone, sulfates, phthalates, DEA, aldehydes, & gluten. After coloring and the Olaplex “after treatments” (#2 & #3), it was time to taking off approximately 2 inches help give her hair a nice line again. Here are the beautiful results!

This is a new client that came in asking me for color only to minimize her grey regrowth in the front – get rid of some of the “brassy” color – and have more natural brighter blonde look. To minimize her regrowth in the front, I zig-zagged a color 1 level lighter at the base regrowth than what I used on the rest of her head to cover her grey. Baby-lights where then foiled in half her head to brighten her blonde up. Results below with no haircut or “styling”.

Sometimes even professionally done color needs correction. Here is a client that came in to me asking for her hair to look more “natural” with highlights and wanting to get rid of the “orange” (brassy) color in her hair. She also wanted to keep her hair on the long side but wanted it to have some style. Below are the before & afters.

Summer hairstyle trends are diversified and provide endless creativity when it comes to innovations and new beauty looks.

From timeless all-natural and highly textured hairstyles to extravagant braids, updos and twists, Summer hairstyle trends show immense incentives and complementing style alternatives for all hair types and face shapes to highlight your best features. Check out some of these Summer hairstyle trends below!

Half-Up Half-Down Hairstyles ~
Being the intermediate variant between loose hair and stylish updo’s, half-up half-down hairstyles are one easy way of concealing a bad hair day. These effortless and versatile hairstyles make a continuous comeback especially with the addition of minimalist metallic hair accessories.

All Forms of Ponytails ~
When it comes to the most versatile and coolest Summer hairstyles, the ponytail comes first on the list. This hair style has been reinvented, revitalized and refreshed for summer. Whether you have long, medium-length or short hair long enough to be put into a ponytail, this hair style is the perfect thing you can consider in summer for looking effortless and chic on a daily basis, as well as for making a big style statement on special events. High or low ponytails can be full & bouncy, sleek and glossy, bubbled, slightly textured, or softly crimped.

Crimped Hair ~
Coming from the nineties, crimped hair is again trendy this summer and adds so much texture to hair whether wearing it in a ponytail or loose for a “waffle” texture look. To achieve the crimped look, you will need a hair crimper, or you can braid wet hair, let it dry completely and then unravel or braid dry hair and then pass the sections through a flat iron a few times, cool it, then unravel the braids and enjoy this trendy chic hairstyle!

Looking great is a matter of finding your own personal style!

February-March 2008 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal

Are you chicBy Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon

Looking wonderful is not about what’s “in” or the “latest.”  The word for women who look great all the time isn’t “fashionable”, it’s “chic.”  Unlike great beauty or wealth, whis is a sensibility waiting to be tapped.  To be chic is to develop a sustainable style, to look uniquely like yourself – the ideal you – whether you are wearing a pair of jeans and a ponytail or a formal with beautifully up-swept hair.  (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)
