Throwback Thursday: The Flat Iron

A bad hair day for someone with curly, wavy, or somewhere-in-between hair can be a disaster. You can use sprays, mousse, gels and more to try to tame it, but sometimes you just need to bring out the big guns and show your hair who is boss. Many well-kept individuals swear by the flat iron as a daily weapon in the battle against bad hair days.

The flat iron sadly was not always in our arsenal, but came into focus just before the turn of the century in 1872 by Parisian man named Marcel Grateau. Marcel used heated metal rods to style and straighten hair into the most popular styles which women deemed as the “Marcel Wave”.

It took over 3flat iron0 years for a major advance to come to the market, but in 1909 Isaac K. Shero invented the first hair straightener to use a flat surface rather than rods. Two flat irons were heated and pressed together to smooth out curls.

Just a few years later, the first hair straightener to resemble what we associate with today hit the stage courtesy of Scottish Heiress, Lady Jennifer Bell Schofield. This double plated heated iron was hinged in the center to clamp and unclamp from the hair.

Even after this invention, many women, in a desperate attempt to kill the curls, would lay their little heads down on their mother’s ironing tables and take a scalding and dangerous clothes iron to their hair. Most were helped in this seemingly insane task by their very own family. Thankfully, that method was swiftly carried away after the 1960’s and we moved forward with the Lady Jennifer’s design.

From there, well, the rest is history. Much like the hairdryer things became safer as the years passed by. Most straighteners on the market today are made with ceramic or steel plates and plastic handles. As you look into your cabinets today, be thankful for the many people who singed their locks so you could look fabulous!

Have a great hair day!

5 All-year Round Hair Tips

Written by: Denise Zingale Date of published: . Posted in News, Publications, Tips, Uncategorized

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Salon
Master Hairdresser, Permanent Wave Specialist, and Colorist

1. Squeeze-dry your hair
GENTLY wring wsqueezing hair dry in a towel-300x261ater from your hair post shampooing & conditioning. Less friction results in less frizzing. To speed up drying time and prevent the use of excessive thermal heat, wring hair gently with paper towels to absorb more water before blow-drying.

 

2. Tend to your scalp not just your hair
Clarifying shampoos do not sufficiently cleanse womans-scalpproduct buildup on the scalp which can result in clogged hair follicles, weakened hair strands and slow hair growth. Apply an astringent to the scalp once a week with a cotton ball, then shampoo with professionally recommended shampoo and conditioner.

 

3. Wash your hair before receiving a color service
shampooing over a sink image2The colorist needs to see your actual hair color to determine successful desired results. Product buildup can make the hair look darker than what it really is and unwashed hair does not make the color take better – it can actually prevent hair color from processing effectively.

 

4. Do not over use “Protein” treatments or conditioners
protein hair treatment imageActual protein treatments or conditioners help to reinforce weak hair but should only be used when professionally recommended.Over use of “protein” on the hair can cause buildup resulting in dry, brittle hair and breakage.

 

5. Use a Humidifier (moist air)

Use professionally recommended moisturizing hair products and regularly run a humidifier to help put moisture back into the air.

Texture Changes

As your body ages, your hair changes…

August – September 2013 – Cleveland Woman’s Journal, East Edition

ClevelandWomansJournal_Cover_Denise-ZingaleBy Denise Zingale Travis

Hair changes every 5 to 7 years.  As our body ages, we see changes in our hair texture.  The hair of a newborn is very soft & fine.  The diameter of the hair thickens as we enter childhood and early adolescence.  As we age and move into adulthood and older, usually beginning in our 40’s and 50’s, the hair begins to change again, becoming “finer” or “thinner” and/or “wiry” or “frizzy”.  Add to the causes of your hair texture changing, hormonal imbalances, medications, diet, and genetics. So what can you do?  (READ ENTIRE ARTICLE)

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)
