Have you heard of the clavicut? This current “beauty buzzword” describes mid-length, in-between hair, long bobs, and shoulder-length styles. The name comes from the fact that the longest layers of this type of cut graze the clavicle, and this collarbone-skimming style has become the hairdo of choice due to its functionality and ease. It’s been a long few seasons of bobs, lobs, swags, shags, etc. You may have opted for one of these styles, or seriously thought about it and decided to keep your long layers anyway. The Clavicut is a trend almost anyone can get behind; young or mature,  growing out a shorter cut, or looking for a change to the same old “long”.

This style can be tailored to your face shape and hair type, although this length is great for anyone. Consider blunt edges for a more dramatic look, or soft layers to blend thicker textures. To make it more modern, opt for bangs with your clavicut for a statement look.

With this length; wearing your hair down won’t weigh you down and up-styles are still romantic. You will still have enough length to successfully air dry, without having a tangled mess or tons of flyaways – it is the perfect middle ground for easy styling and easy care. Although saying good-bye to your long locks might sound scary, this cut could be life changing, in the best way. Opt for a new outlook with this style and shed some of your inhibitions along with those inches. Call (216) 292-HAIR (4247) to schedule an appointment for your new look today!

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.

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”.

How to Tell If Short Hair Will Look Good on You

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in Fashion, hair texture, make-overs, News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized, Women's Hairstyles

All you need is a ruler and a pencil ~
By: Denise Zingale Travis, D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

It is a question hairstylists and reliable friends are often asked; “do you think short hair would look good on me?” Thanks to celebrities recently liberating their locks with crops, bobs and lobs, that question gets asked more often than not.

Well the question of flattery has a short answer: The 2.25″ (5.5cm) rule.

The magic measurement was discovered by hairstylist, John Frieda and it is all about the angles. The angle of the jaw bone determines whether or not someone would look best with short hair or long hair. It is said the result is a trusted, easy and exact measurement that can indicated whether a face (any face) is suited to short or long hair.

Can you wear shor hair example1

 

To try it, position a pencil or pen under your chin horizontally and then place a ruler under your ear, vertically. Take your measurement from the intersection of the pencil and ruler. Less than 2.25″ and you could  look amazing with short hair, and if it’s anything more long locks will be the most flattering choice for you.

 

Can you wear short hair exampleThis example works well well with Michelle Williams and Kim Kardashian (pictured), and when you think of other examples such as Audrey Hepburn next to Sarah Jessica Parker it becomes very clear.

This is a great time of the year to rejuvenate you and your look. Contact me to help you in your choice of a new style to help you look and feel the best you can! ~ Denise Zingale Travis               (216) 292-HAIR (4247).

Permanent waves have a bit of a bad rap, but they have not gone out of style.  Hair has come a long way since the “big” hair fad of the 80’s.  The new permanent waves are nothing like the tight curls of the decades past.  If your hair is straight, fine, limp and/or flat, a permanent wave can give you….   (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)

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)
