Healthy Foods for Healthier Hair

 

Nourishing the mind, body, and spirit work in unison to help your skin, hair, and nails shine bright. Nutrients are the building blocks of keratin. Keratin can be found in protein-rich foods like lentils, Greek yogurt, poultry, nuts, and quinoa. These proteins are the building blocks for a healthy lifestyle, working to smooth your strands and keep your locks looking full and glossy. With the help of the best hair salon in Miami Beach and the top hairstylists in Miami at Red Market, of course! 

 

According to O The Oprah Magazine, fusing superfoods into your diet helps hair growth. Superfoods like biotin proteins found in eggs and almonds help to prevent hair loss, collagen from fruits like guava and strawberries strengthen locks, and Omega-3 fatty acids from salmon and chia seeds promote growth. 

 

Consuming fresh fruits and vegetables bursting with antioxidants nourish your hair, skin, and nails from the inside out. Vitamins found in leafy greens and delectable fruits act as supplements to boost your hair health. Deficiencies in vitamins such as vitamin d, iron, and zinc make hair brittle, cause shedding, and stunt hair growth.

 

Consuming nutritious food is one way to benefit hair health, but you can also use superfoods to create hair masks. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition highlights a unique mask using proteins found in raw eggs for an at-home topical treatment that stimulates hair growth. Once a week, massage a beaten egg into your scalp, let the mask set in your hair for 15 minutes giving the proteins time to revitalize your follicles, then jump in the shower and wash your hair! 

 

Happy Hair Healing from your Red Market Beauty Salon Team! 

 

Hot Topics: Balayage vs. Foil

 

The age-old question, Balayage vs. Foil? It’s been a hot topic at every salon’s coffee station, by stylists and clients alike. It’s not only an essential conversation, it’s imperative to better understand what you want from highlighting your hair. So at Red Market beauty salon, we decided to delve in and do a little investigation on this hot topic of the week. 

 

 

In French, Balayage means “to sweepingly paint,” hence why this technique gives your locks an Instagram worthy sun-kissed look. Balayage’s less structured technique creates a soft-effect using a freehand technique to paint your hair and open-air color processing, resulting in a more natural highlight.  Balayage is perfect for those looking who are new to color treating their hair and seek more infrequent maintenance options. 

 

 

We went straight to the source, one of the top colorists in Miami, Martin Ducasse of Red Market beauty salon his thoughts on Balayage vs. Foil. “Balayage is great for someone looking for a very subtle and low maintenance look. The dramatic ombre colors you see on social media are generally achieved using foils since we need to lift dark hair to a very light blonde. Foils allow the hair to lift quicker and stronger to get the desired look.” 

 

The Foil technique is more controlled from root to end, foil-wrapped hair sets during the highlighting treatment. The heat conducted in the foil enables the product to infiltrate deeper, creating a brighter contrast between hair strands and giving you a more dramatic look. Foiling differs from the Balayage highlighting technique in that the process takes longer and requires more maintenance.

 

Whether Balayage or Foil is your go-to treatment, Red Market hair salon in Miami Beach is ready to make your hair goals come true. 

Why post- quarantine color isn’t “sticking”?

 

 

Weeks and weeks of cabin fever had everyone flocking to their hairdresser for a post-quarantine color and haircut.  After dying and dying, we hit what seemed like a conundrum. Colorists were treating hair that wouldn’t take on color dye! Clients were getting root touch-ups with grey not getting covered. Lucky for you, the best hair salon in Miami, Red Market, discovered the reason why.

 

During quarantine, many of us unknowingly started Pinteresting away our time, concocting innovative home hair care rituals. From applying a bit too much dry shampoo for those Zoom happy hours to covering up roots à la Eva Longoria with at-home root touch up kits, and fulfilling the natural healing trends with coconut oil follicle masks. Those social crazes got the best of us.  

 

These “so-called” solutions caused a layer of sediment build-up on our scalp. Fast forward to post-quarantine styling and that build-up is preventing color from attaching to the hair follicles of those pesky greys. Clients were coming in to dye their hair with the top hair colorists in Miami and seeing grey roots sprouting just hours after their treatment. 

It took a few clients to find the solution, but Red Market Miami hair salon made a remarkable discovery, _______ Clarifying Shampoo! Yes, SHAMPOO!

 

Using a clarifying shampoo 30 minutes before your coloring treatment, triple scrubs the roots of your hair follicles and cleans your scalp to prep your locks for color! 

 

Let’s get shampooing!

Chic Summer Hair Q&A with Natalie Fabian

summer-hair-tips

Summer sun means swimming, sand, and salt which can all be bitterly harsh elements on our hair. It’s important to remember hydration nourishes our strands during summer. Kerastase’s ‘7 Summer Hair Tips For for Protection In The Summer’ shines a light on how to avoid unnecessary dryness while indulging in summer fun, by minimizing seasonal damage from activities like heat styling, during summer. We sat down with Red Market Miami hair salon star colorist Natalie Fabian, for a conversation on how to keep summer hair chic.

Natalie is one of Red Market’s top hair colorists in Miami, whose unique talents are at the forefront of brightening every client’s shades. Trained by Vidal Sassoon Academy in Santa Monica, California- Natalie went on to receive her Balayage training from RED MARKET NYC’s Reynald Ricard. Inspired by those ever-chic Cali blonde locks, Natalie has perfected blending tones with the French highlighting technique, Balayage. She uses her artistry to create shades of blonde that are soft and subtle, yet bold and bright. Fabian, is a certified Inoa colorist with extensive expertise working with Kerastase, Renee Furterer, and Davines. Natalie’s technique for formulating the perfect blonde has made her a trusted celebrity colorist for clients such as Elle Macpherson. She is our RM master at brightening your locks!

UV protection is critical to maintaining our skin healthy, is it possible to add SPF to our hair? 

“Applying hair oil with an SPF  is very nourishing. It can counteract the stress of summer and also protect hair from harsh elements, like heat and sun. Oil coats the hair and gives it a protective shield, so it doesn’t soak up so much salt and chlorine when you swim. Hair oil is your friend all year round, but especially in the summer, even if it’s just for shine!”

Natalie, locking in moisture during Summer months seems like an impossible feat, hydrating products like masks are agents of protection we all know about, but are there any secret tricks of the trade you can share with us? 

“The Evian Misting Spray is a great summer hair hack. It’s generally used to mist and cool you down by spraying your face and neck on a hot day, but I love to use it on hair too! Hair gets dried out from exposure to salt and sun, and this misting spray adds instant moisture when transitioning from the beach to your evening outing.”

Nighttime is a great opportunity to repair and restore hair, what should be our go-to evening hair care routine during Summer?

“Night Serums and hair masks are critical during the summer months. I recommend the  by Kerastase or the Moisture and Control mask by Oribe. With hair experiencing more stressors, treating it overnight allows for long-lasting hydration rather than a mid-day one-hour hair mask routine. Treat your hair like you treat your skin. If you put moisturizer on your skin at night, your hair should get the same TLC.”

Q & A with RM’s Rogelio Gonzalez

       

 

               Curious what it’s like providing safe hair services in a post-COVID world? We sat down with Red Market Miami Salon co-owner Rogelio Gonzalez for a discussion on operating clean hair salons in our new normal and what this all means for you. 

Rogelio is one of Red Market Miami’s top hair stylists who brings his unique talents and experience to the forefront of every client’s look. Trained by L’Oreal Professional and Kerastase, Gonzalez has been a trusted stylist for Miss Universe contestants and Wilhelmina models. He is an RM gem, who is ready to help you shine!

 

Rogelio, how is Red Market Salon looking towards the post-pandemic future? 

“We are using our increased safety protocols as a tool to offer an even better experience for our guests. Since reopening under new guidelines, we have tremendously revamped how we serve guests. Going beyond a great cut and amazing color, it’s all about the experience from the moment a guest walks through the door to the contact-less checkout.”

 

Has RM taken this opportunity to discover any innovative technology?

“Much of the measures we have adopted post lockdown will remain in place well into the future. For example, we have fast-tracked our Red Market App that we intended to launch in 2021, now launching this summer. The App allows clients to easily book, text, and pay for services. This initiative will have our clients coming in and out most efficiently and luxuriously.”

 

What measures are being taken by Red Market to ensure post-pandemic safety?

“We are spacing out everyone’s appointments in a strategic manner so that it feels like a more exclusive service. We are disinfecting high-touch areas in front of guests so that the cleanliness makes our clients feel safe throughout their experience in the salon. We are also taking payment information at the time of booking, sending you a text when the services are completed, and running your credit card from our back office. Allowing us to decrease contact and reduce the need for a receptionist.”

 

Are there any exciting new treatments we should be trying?

“Keratin and Botox treatments are popular during the Summer!

Unlike a perm or relaxer, Keratin is more like a semi-permanent treatment that lasts around three months. The treatment creates a barrier between your hair and external factors, like heat and humidity. Keratin doesn’t remove curls, but it cuts down your straightening time. It’s a great option for clients who have healthy hair and are looking to have their natural curl and frizz smoothed out. 

Hair Botox is a lighter version of Keratin. Using hydration, the Botox reverses damage to the cortex and cuticle of the hair making hair healthier and more manageable. The Botox penetrates the cuticle and fills in any damage to make hair shinier, sleeker, and stronger.”

The dictionary defines self-confidence as having a belief in one’s powers, which derives from the Latin word fidere’ meaning “to trust”; therefore, having self- confidence is about trusting in the power of YOU!

VOGUE’s May issue shines a light on the positive impacts salons have in our sense of ‘feeling good’ in day-to-day life. The article is titled, “How Hair Salons Will Be Transformed by the COVID-19 Pandemic.” While it’s understandable that families across the globe are facing pressing needs, people have “realized how much they rely on their salons as a comforting source of self-care and community.” We are longing for the positive ‘feel-good’ impact haircuts and color touch-ups have on our self-confidence, which leaves hair stylists and salons playing an invaluable role in our lives. 

What we are Doing to Keep you Safe

At Red Market, we have always regarded our relationship with you, as essential! We are eager to get back to trimming and primming and are seeing results in our new meticulous reopening safety plan.

Everything you need to know about Keratin Treatments

 

keratin treatment- salon in miami

If you have curly hair or are prone to frizz, then you absolutely must get a keratin treatment this summer. Keratin treatments tame frizz and make your hair appear shinier and more tamed. They also cut down on the time you spend drying and styling your hair– and isn’t that what you want? Here are a few things you should know before getting your keratin treatment.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

There are certainly at-home keratin treatments you can try. But if you want it done right, you need the magic touch of a professional stylist. In a first class salon such as Red Market, you should expect treatment to last about 90 minutes. However it may vary depending on length and hair type.

How Long Will Keratin Treatment Last?

Keratin treatments will keep your hair manageable and frizz-free for 8 to 10 weeks after you receive your treatment with proper at home care, Chlorine and Sulphate containing products may affect the time your treatment stays intact. You will find your blow-drying time cut in half and easy hairstyles are even easier.

How Should I Maintain My Hair After A Keratin Treatment?

Depending on the Keratin used on your hair type, you may need to avoid washing your hair for four days after treatment, Red Market offers different types of keratin for different types of hair. But keep in mind, we are talking about 8 to 10 weeks of hair glory. So whether you are waiting 24 hours of 4 days, it is a small sacrifice many are happy to pay.

Experts recommend that you avoid shampoos with sodium-sulfates. But, shouldn’t you be doing that anyway? We can help you choose a shampoo for your hair type that will keep your keratin intact.

Something as complex as a Keratin treatment where each step of the process is crucial to the end result, it is best to go with a professional stylist.

An experienced professional will do the job properly, and will be able to offer a higher-end treatment than you can get from a box. Finally, as not all keratin treatments are alike, you should consult with a top hair stylist because the wrong treatment can alter the tone of your hair color.

Summer-Proof your Hair

Here’s what you need to know about Summer’s hottest hair treatments and our special pricing available until the end of August.

Keratin uses a chemical formula to reduce the appearance of frizz and allow the hair to become more manageable.

Hair Botox gets its name because of how it works. Hair Botox works by filling in individual fibers of hair to help give it fullness and make it smooth. Hair Botox is actually a deep conditioning treatment that coats hair fibers with a filler, such as keratin. The treatment does not contain any artificial chemicals and is a more natural way to re-vamp limp and dull looking hair.

Hair is history

The appearance of people regardless of their origin, speaks for itself, from the costumes to the way of wearing the hair express a particular language, if we look around and focus on how people wear their hair, we could deepen even more than what It simply looks.

Long hair, for example, has been represented in different cultures and history has shown it for a long time, having long hair is a sign that is cling to the identity, but what does identity have to do with hair length?

Before answering the question, it is important to highlight the events and characters that have shown the importance of long hair. In religion for example, Sanson’s long hair keeps his great strength, in Greek mythology: Zeus, Venus and Apollo also defined his appearance with large extensions of hair, like the Indians or Rastafari or SIKH and many other cultural groups that avoid cutting hair alluding to their roots, their ancestors, the symbolism in their culture, long hair is a life to be told in each strand.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long hair has a great bond with self-image because that image is part of the construction of identity and that identity acts as a reflection of traditions, riches, beliefs, power, to make a statement, it is a reflection of protection, of remembrance, it is a memory and it is history… which define us as individuals but at the same time includes us in society.

The Red Ombre: How to Get the Newest Color Trend

Fiery shades of ombre hair are all over the runway and on the pages of hottest fashion magazines this season. This is one trend you can get into, and keep your hair conservative enough that you will not have to hide it in a chignon at the office.

Short, chic hair can wear ombre in shaggy styles, with darker shades around the roots and neckline, progressing to lighter shades around the face. Your professional hair stylist can create unique Miami – sunset effect on short hair.

The use of a brush technique of sunset red around the neckline and root areas will begin the look. They will finish with an application with lighter highlights of golden red on the ends.

The color choice will depend on how bold or subtle you want your ombre look to be.

If your hair is medium length: Talk to your stylist about a blunt bob, in a golden red ombre. The classic bob cut gets an edgy lift as the strands go from bright copper to a deep warm golden blonde.

This color combination is ideal for lighter skin tones. For deeper skin tones: try a deep mahogany to light red. If your hair is wavy or curly in texture consider a concave bob with this color combination.

Long hair will obviously show more ombre progression. Ask your stylist to start with a deep cherry brown to ginger: if you have deep, cool toned skin. For lighter and warmer skin tones: consider a medium to light warm auburn progression. It will give you a sunny, youthful look without going blonde.

If your workplace is more progressive and casual: you can have fun with a fire red to orange ombre or a dramatic black cherry to red effect. For a very edgy look, your stylist can create a jagged ombre by wielding a smaller brush, and meticulously establishing a line using color clips.

       

Ombre is a hair color trend that works for almost any hair type. If you wear bangs, talk to your stylist about blending the color in and styling options for your bangs. They can also recommend the right products to maintain your new trendy hair.
