The smell of lavender. Calming, soothing and beautifully fragrant. This is a popular flower and essential oil that is commonly found in most households. Diffusing lavender in the evening is a perfect way to unwind from a busy day, and especially before bed, can have an overall calming effect, relieve nervous tension and can help aid in sleep.

Lavender is particularly great for women who are suffering from PMS or going through menopause. The calming scent of lavender helps to support the nervous system which can help relieve tension, stress or anxiety to help minimize hair loss. It also has estrogenic properties, which can support healing from low estrogen, support a good nights rest or bring balance during menopause. Lavender also has a positive effect in relieving headaches, migraines, and depression.

You can also gain the benefits of lavender by making this delicious lavender infused lemonade. Sip on this herbal elixir all day and feel the calming benefits this amazing herb has to offer.

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 fall hairstyles, Fashion, Hair Color, hair texture, make-overs, News, Perms / Body Waves, Publications, Spring hairstyles, Summer hairstyles, thinning hair, 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).

Solutions for Fine, Thin, Wiry, Frizzy Hair

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 and 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 texture 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? First, get your hormones checked. Hormones influence your hair and texture in many ways since they are regulators of the body’s metabolism and its functions. Diet and medications can take a toll on hair so rule out any possible nutritional deficiencies that can cause dry, thinning, brittle hair or hair loss.

Next, get a GREAT (not just good) haircut! Work with an experienced hair professional to help you with your texture changes. Discuss your lifestyle and desired time commitment to your hair now. Seriously consider getting color, highlights, low-lights, or a permanent/body wave. One or a combination of these texture-changing services can help fine or thin hair look and feel fuller and “wiry” or “frizzy” hair look and feel more controlled and manageable.

On this client, she is just beginning to go grey but not ready (or wanting) full all over color. I have highlighted her hair with color to blend in the grey starting to come though. If your hair is straight, fine, limp and/or flat, a permanent/body wave can give you the texture and lift which boosts the overall volume of the hair to make it much easier to create today’s fashionable hairstyles as seen on this client here.

Seen here are the wrapping technique used, curl results and the finished style. (Click on the picture for larger view.)

For those who want the “undone”, “beach wave”, or “swag” look regularly  https://dmazsalon.com/the-swag/, you would be better off getting a body wave as opposed to using curling irons every day. Irons apply more direct heat, and daily use of them would produce more damage over time.

A few quick facts about permanent/body waves. Human hair is an extremely strong and versatile fiber. With an experienced stylist/perm specialist, they will evaluate your hair and determine the type of solution, rod size and wrapping technique. Proper care using only professionally recommended & bought at a salon haircare and regular maintenance can keep your “waves” lasting for months and styling time on your hair definitely minimized. The rewards of an easy-to-care-for style are great and having a permanent/body wave can make a world of difference between looking uninteresting or looking fashionably beautiful!

For more information and/or consultation if a permanent wave, body wave or a combination of other salon texture-changing services are for you!

Winter Wellness for your Hair

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

By: Denise Zingale Travis / D’MAZ Lifestyle Salon (216) 292-HAIR (4247)

Young woman standing in snow, leaning against tree, portrait From hat hair to static electricity, split ends to dry frizz, when winter weather hits, a bad hair day can last an entire season. Hair typically gets 25 percent dryer during the winter. Even if you live in a moderate climate, you’re still susceptible to hair-raising changes as the seasons pass.

The environment can have some of the most damaging effects on hair in both summer and winter, but in winter it’s often worse because people generally don’t take as many precautions to protect their hair. Sun exposure (which can be as intense on a ski slope as it is on a beach) combined with blustery winter wind as well as snow, rain, and icy cold (which makes hair brittle and dry) can all come together to create some very bad winter hair days.

static-hair-01Even if you spend most of your time indoors, winter is still your hair’s enemy. Indoor heating can be something akin to spending an entire afternoon under a hair dryer. Honestly, it’s not quite as dramatic as the damage would be from that, but it certainly gives you an idea of what indoor heating can do to your hair. No matter what’s causing your winter hair woes, it is a fact the hair tends to become dry faster and have more breakage in the winter.

Here are 5 protective and replenishing steps you can take.

hair-care-photo 1. Make sure you are equipped with a professional, salon quality shampoo and conditioner. The right shampoo and conditioner will help repair, seal and smooth your hair. A power infusion treatment is recommended once to twice a week for sever damaged hair.
2. Avoid over-washing your hair in winter and in the shower. Try to start washing it over the sink or tub with warm to cool water. The pressure of the shower head and the hot water causes the formation of tiny chinks in the surrounding cuticle which adds to the problems of hair dryness and breakage.
3. Towel-dry your hair very gently as aggressive rubbing roughs up the cuticle that can lead to breakage.
4. Professionally prescribed styling products are a must to help protect the hair from thermal styling. “Cocktailing” your products together can help achieve added protection, texture and shine. Direct air from the blow dryer down the hair shaft to encourage the hair to lay flatter.
5. Good nutrition, one that incorporates small portions of all the key food groups such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein sources helps to nourish and protect hair. Taking a quality-grad multivitamin with essential B vitamins (B6, B12, foliate), essential fatty acids and adequate minerals can help dry, weak hair prone to breakage in the winter.

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)

Mature woman with thinning hairNow you can do something about  it ~ By Denise Zingale

Realizing that your hair is beginning to look thinner or noticing that there is more in hair in your brush, on your pillow, on your bathroom floor, or worst yet after washing your hair it looks like a small animal has been left behind in your tub can be devastating.  For most women, we try and deny what we are seeing and rationalized that the situation is temporary and will soon stop.  For some women it will, for others it becomes a lifestyle change.  (READ THE FULL ARTICLE)
