Gather and Look Amazing 

Gather and Look Amazing 

Thanksgiving is a holiday centered around food, family, and an attitude of gratitude. Whether you are the hostess or a guest at this year’s turkey soirée, and even if you are in the kitchen prepping pies since the wee hours of the morning, these low-maintenance hairstyles will help you get ready for the holiday season. 

 

Top 5 Hairstyles for Thanksgiving Dinner: 

 

1 – Loose Waves

Waves are always a good idea, whether using a curling wand or pulling hair into a loose bun while it’s damp for a more natural approach. Using a curling iron? Try a medium barrel, shake-out curls as you go, with a lightweight setting spray, and finger or comb curls for perfectly loose waves. This chic and effortless holiday look pairs well with studded pins.

2 – Knot It Up

Who doesn’t love a messy top knot? Between the parade watching and the turkey basting, washing our hair goes by the wayside. Take the messy bun you wear every day to the next level with some loose flyaways for a face-framing effect that fancies up that look!

3 – Low Braid

French Braids are a dream, but let’s be honest, not the most manageable if you are not a pro. RM stylists suggest taking a more carefree approach to braiding. Pull your hair into a low pony and zig-zag it into a loose messy three-strand braid à la Gigi, loosely braided to the side.

4 – High Pony Tail

The sky-high pony is a holiday staple giving your look some gritty edge. Our renowned RM stylist’s #1 pro-tip is blow-drying hair upside down with volumizing spray before pulling up into the ponytail. P.s. if you are looking for some extra bounce, loosely curl your ends.

5 – French Twists

The elegant French Twist is a classic fave because it elongates a slender neck. The swirl effect appears effortlessly chic and is a sweet choice for any occasion. Start by adding texture spray for molding, sweep your hair to one side and secure with bobbies, gather your hair, and twist those locks into a roll while tucking pins to secure it in place. Voilà, you have French Twisted!

When RM counts our blessings, we count good hair TWICE. 

Gobble, Gobble!

Must Have Deep Conditioners for Fine Hair

Must Have Deep Conditioners for Fine Hair 

 

Natural oils have treated hair throughout the centuries; but, in the 1800s Édouard Pinaud formulated Brilliantine. Developed for men’s beards, Brilliantine was the framework for the conditioner we use today. 

Shampoos clean sweat and dead skin cells from your scalp, while conditioners work to deliver softer hair and protect from friction between strands. Supercharged deep conditioners boost the overall vitality as the treatments penetrate the hair shaft to enrich hair with moisture. 

Top 3 Deep Conditioners: 

  1. Kérastase – Resistance Mask for Damaged Hair 

Kérastase’s Resistance Mask repairs and provides deep nourishment for weak and damaged hair; while shielding strands against breakage. Formulated with Native Plant Cells and Gluco Peptides, the Resistance Mask enters the hair cuticle and strengthens the root to stimulate growth. A little goes a long way, so apply the mask to wet hair and leave it on for 5 minutes before rinsing.

  1. OUAI Treatment Masque 

Ready for the ultimate treatment mask? Yes, OUAI! Designed with artichoke leaf extract, this mask hydrates and repairs damage to fine hair. OUAI’s reputation shines through this mask, with conditioning damage control that mends split ends and prevents color from fading. It is a GOAT of treatment masks.

  1. OLAPLEX No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner 

OLAPLEX is world-renowned for restoring damaged hair; whether environmental or thermal factors were the cause, OLAPPLEX’s chemical breakdown works at pairing with the single sulfur hydrogen bond faster than the three oxygen molecules can. No matter your hair type, the No.5 conditioner infuses moisture into strands. 

We would be remiss if we forget to mention, RM’s top stylists on Miami Beach suggest ONLY using deep conditioning treatments 2-4 times per month. 

Take your dreams and your conditioner choice seriously!

Going Blonde: What You Need to Know Before Bleaching

Going Blonde: What You Need to Know Before Bleaching 

That age-old tale, do blondes have more fun? Our favorite RM influencers seem to think so…

 “Going lighter has given me life! It adds a youthful appearance to my skin and since my hair can be oily, it reduces the oils allowing me to use less dry shampoo”

Here are the facts behind those fun in the sun rumors! As we spend our summer days outdoors, our hair goes through a process called photobleaching. That’s when the melanin pigment in our hair breaks down and fades color the more it’s exposed to sunlight. 

Our friends at COSMO speak the truth, “Bleached hair is synonymous with dry, brittle hair. There’s no other way to go about it-” The key to post- Summer success is enhancing that natural process to achieve custom blonde locks, and Red Market’s top colorists are renowned for doing just that! 

RM’s Facts on Going Blonde: 

  1. Invest in the Compromise:
    Going blonde is a meticulous process, which can strip your hair if not done by trained colorists. To avoid further compromising your hair, NEVER bleach freshly washed hair and invest time in hydrating treatments, like applying conditioning masks to help heal your locks.
  1. Maintenance is Key:
    Unless you are diving into the deep end of platinum, our RM colorists will allow your roots to grow naturally, followed by routine color services to achieve your perfect blonde. Going blonde is ALWAYS a work in progress!
  2. Never Go Light Without a Great Cut:

New do, new you! A fabulous cut energizes hair follicles on color-treated hair, which can suffer sufficient moisture loss during the bleaching process. RM’s top hairstylists also suggest limiting damage from heat styling, like blow-drying and ironing daily to keep color-treated hair healthy.

RM Insider wants to caution you that going blonde is not one size fits all, and achieving your golden dreams takes time. Estimate leaving six to eight weeks between color treatments and always Keep Calm as You Go Blonde!

Sexy Brunettes 

“I like Brunettes.”
– Christian Grey 

Whoever said blondes have more fun never spent a night on the town with a Brunette! Let’s be honest “brown hair” doesn’t have to be synonymous with “boring hair.” At RM, we know Brunettes are electrifying; I mean, even Christian Grey thinks so. So if you have the itch to freshen up your natural or current shade of brown, our renowned RM colorists at the top salon in Miami are ready to introduce to you the hottest shades for fall Brunettes!

    1. Chocolate
                   Whether your chocolate craving is milk, dark, bitter, or cocoa, our RM colorists will match a perfectly smooth, rich, and delicious flavor for your locks. Vivid chocolate is versatile and elegant, while warm and rich brown tones are low-maintenance. So for some dimension, spice up your chocolate with ombré lowlights, and remember the more shine you desire, the darker we go!
    1. Toffee
                  Sweet, sweet toffee is a sophisticated hue of warm brown you can find on Lily Collins in the new season of the cult classic, Emily In Paris. A dark brown base with medium and light caramel brown highlights strewn throughout will have this low-key color shining even as it fades! Brunettes in toffee “brings one of the most classic candies to life—and you don’t have to feel guilty about indulging in it.” – L’Oréal Paris 
    1. Chestnut
                   This classic rich brown donned by the Duchess of Sussex feels like the truest of brunettes. Our renowned squad of RM colorists can incorporate some warm, subtle, or even bronze-toned highlights to add some pizzazz and keep yourlocks multi-tonal. Don’t forget to finish with a chestnut brown gloss to add that Markle-like magic!
    1. Espresso
                    This super-dark brown creates a similar impact as black without being as drastic. Its coffee-colored hue hints at notes slightly warmer in tone, which yields new levels of dimension for your face, incorporating sparse intervals black with the brown that come together to create a cool-toned gem, like that of smoky quartz.

We will see you on the dark side of the moon!

It’s a new season and this fall’s 2020 hairstyle trends are low-maintenance looks and cuts that enhance hair texture. We may not be readying ourselves for major events this holiday season, but root touch-ups can go a long way on those Zoom calls.

Going Red

2. Red has always been a fall hair color staple. Finding the right hue of red for your skin is critical. The right colorist can tell you exactly which red can best suit you. Lastly, find someone who specializes in reds. Getting the right shade of red and covering your current tone (depending on your starting point), takes major skills.

Healthy Foods for Healthier Hair

Nourishing the mind, body, and spirit work in unison to help your skin, hair, and nails shine bright. In short, your diet MATTERS when it comes to healthy hair. 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.

We reached out to Domonique Ebra ( @consciously.vegan )who gave us an incredible vegan hair mask recipe.

DIY Nourishing Hair mask:
– 1/2 Banana
– 1 Avocado
– 1 tablespoons of coconut oil

Blend ingredients, apply to hair from roots to end, let sit for 30mins then rinse!

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!

Hot Topics: Balayage vs. Foil

 

The age-old question, Balayage vs. Foil when highlighting? 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. 

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.”
