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.

The ponytailThe ponytail

The ponytail will no doubt be part of the trendy hairstyles for 2013. Easy and stylish, the ponytail is worn in different ways; from the lower part of the neck, to midway, to all the way up high on the head. The ponytail is one of the most versatile hairstyles sported by women of ages.

 

 

The bunThe bun

The bun is timeless and always trendy. Each year, the bun comes back stronger, reworked, refurbished and accessorized. And it remains to be a stylist’s favorite hairstyle. It can be worn very tightly, or it can be worn in the completely looser and more relaxed style.

 

The braidThe braid

A classic hairstyle that is suitable for any situation. The braid can be simply, in a bun or as a headband for special occasions. Whether you have long hair or medium length hair, the braid is makes for a romantic and fresh hairstyle

 

 

 

The layered lookThe layered hair

The layered hair refers to any number of lengths (short, medium or long), textures and cuts (like long bob). And when it comes adding a twist of drama and volume to hair, there’s nothing more classical or effective as a well-sculpted layer cut.

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.”
