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.

The Right Haircut for your Face Shape

 

Sometimes, you just want a change. Changing your hairstyle is a great way to feel like every day has something new and exciting about it—but perhaps you’re feeling unsure about what looks will pair well with your face shape. How bold can you go before you can’t pull it off anymore? Here are some tips on the best haircut for your face shape.

Diamond

Bangs are great for diamond-shaped faces. They help to soften your face shape. This face shape does well with medium to chin length hairstyles, with a variety of textures and styles to choose from. The main thing for diamond shaped faces is to avoid too many layers in your style and to stay away from pixies and really short haircuts. This shorter hairstyles don’t balance well with this face shape.

 

Heart

Wavy long locks or fun, pixie cuts look great on a heart-shaped face. Shoulder-length hair also works well, but the general goal for people with this face shape is to frame their face well. Long bangs or choppy layers are great. Long, layer-less styles are not.

 

 

 

Square


Long hairstyles, shortcuts that frame the face, or blunt cuts that end below shoulder length do well for square faces. Side partings are best, but feathery bangs are doable as well. Long bands simply help to soften the jawline better on square faces. Stay far away from pixie cuts though!

 

 

Round

Round faces flourish when you choose haircuts that give the sense of lengthening the face. Long, medium and chin-length styles go well with round faces. Blunt cuts, straight fringe, and short bobs are not ideal cuts for this shape. Go for wispy or tapered edges.

 

 

 

Oval

 

This face shape is the ideal face shape. If you see a style you love, try it! Your face shape is compatible with any and all kinds of hairstyles.

Everything to know about the Keratin Treatment

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.
