The Beauty of African-American Hairstyles

african-american hairstyles

It doesn’t matter if your hair is natural, pressed, relaxed or curled, for African-American hair, finding a hair stylist you can trust is not only essential, it’s also tough. Any woman can find fault in their hair no matter what type of hair we were born with. For African-American’s, their hair needs a lot of care to prevent thinning. We will look at some of Red Market’s expert advice on how to take care of and work with African-American hairstyles.

For natural hair   

Hair conditioner and shampoo are crucial if you need your natural hair to remain as healthy as always. It is difficult to use styling agents without a conditioner and shampoo. Trimming the hair also keeps it neat and stylish and avoids you the feeling of unkempt hair.

For pressed or straightened hair   

Pressed hair needs lots of visits to the salon; some go every two weeks for trimming. However, instead of many visits to the salon and using too many products, drinking a lot of water and greens has significant benefits on your hair. Also, over the counter products like coconut oil are healthy options for your hair care.

For relaxed hair       

In most cases, 80% of people with relaxed hair complain of damaged hair. Hair relaxers contain chemicals that could easily thin out the hair follicles. However, with technology, you can relax your hair without using hair relaxer products, some hot iron curls would be enough. It’s also essential to determine your hair texture since some textures are not fit for straightening.

For thinning hair   

Red Market Salon in Miami recommends the use of Kerastase specific, a high-quality hair product, for people suffering from thinning and damaged hair. The product acts to restore damaged hair and reduce hair loss. For African-American hairstyles that is coarse or relaxed, applying Kerastase after a deep conditioning could provide a heat protective layer on the hair.

Top Miami Salons – Haircolor Trends: Fall 2012

As the seasons change, so are the haircolor trends; ranging from the dramatic to the subtle. As we move from the hotter months into the colder months, pops of color will begin to shake up the world of haircolor and will be sported on the streets. When temperatures start to drop, haircolors will stay warm with dark chocolate brunettes, deep mahogany redheads and golden blondes. Salons in Miami and all around, will be asked to try these new hair coloring trends for all their clients. Below is a list of haircoloring trends for each hair color. 

haircolor-trends-red-market-miamiFor BRUNETTES, the trend is the “illumination technique.” This technique consists of darker hair on top and lighter color on the mid-lengths and ends; causing a Ombré hair effect. Many women are opting for bright colors like pink or purple on the ends or roots instead of the norm of natural colors. This is a look for the trendsetters and gazers as it takes someone confident to pull it off. However, this will be the most requested; a deep brunette at the roots blending into warm, golden tones at the ends.


haircolor-trends-red-market-miamiFor REDHEADS, this season will be as stunning as ever! Moving away from the rich, ruby red, and Va va voom! colors we saw for the previous seasons, this Fall/Winter, many redheads will be opting for a less extreme red that fits with more skin tones. Tracey Cunningham Celebrity Colorist and Redken Creative Consultant says Emma Stone is “one of the most vibrant redheads of our time.” Even though Emma Stone is known for changing up her hair color from blonde, to brunette, and to redhead; red being the most renowned, as Tracey states.  

haircolor-trends-red-market-miamiFor BLONDES, ash blonde is definitely having a moment. Ash blonde is a natural, multidimensional, non-fussy hair color and will be a must-have this season. The Fall/Winter blonde will have the base a shade darker to give some dimension as it  will compliment the look of the season. Tracey states  “for those on the lighter end of the spectrum, Gwyneth Paltrow’s gorgeous natural color remains a most-requested look.” To get the look, focus on Chromatics Naturals, Golds, Warm Browns and Beiges.

 

haircolor trendsNow lets not forget the Ombré hair craze, as this trend isn’t going anywhere; taking a new direction for Fall 2012 and Winter 2013. This fall “The New Ombré” hair color trend will exist.  Instead of the dramatic dark-to-light transition of past seasons, the new ombré is a rich, velvety look with a super-subtle transition in color for a look that’s being seen as the “balancing act.”
