Hair Treatments Galore This Holiday Season

Hair Treatments Galore This Holiday Season

The holidays are fast approaching, and now is the time to contemplate the steps you’ll need to take to present a photo-perfect look for those office Christmas parties, family dinners and New Year’s eve parties. Of those decisions, there’s perhaps no more important decision to be made than how to tame those tresses.  Your McAllister hair stylists have a wide variety of hair treatment options this year to smooth frizzy hair and repair dry & damaged hair.

Olaplex hair treatments are a perennial favorite and paired with a blowout have become the standard hair treatment for clients with either hair dried from the summer sun or chemically-damaged hair.  In less than an hour, our stylists will have you back to better than new! And this year, Olaplex has gone beyond No. 3 to use at home…this year Olaplex has introduced No. 4 shampoo, No. 5 conditioner, No. 6 bond smoother and No. 7 bonding oil.  If you’re looking for something a bit more naturally-derived, look no further than Davines’ sustainably-sourced and naturally-derived hair treatment options.  This year’s “go-to” from Davines is the Renaissance Circle hair mask. This treatment is perfect to repair hair stressed from the use of hot tools, rebuilding hair integrity and restoring hair’s natural shine.

If you are considering hair smoothing options, your McAllister stylists have more options than ever before. The industry standard – Keratin Complex – is a mainstay in McAllister’s hair salon; Keratin Complex however has introduced KC Max – the strongest keratin available and produces absolutely beautiful results. For clients that want to keep the body and ability to style but kick the frizzy hair, we have several options that will be tailored to your particular needs and budget. Brazilian Blowout is available and is the treatment that started all the rage over a year ago and produces dependably gorgeous results.  Brazilian Blowout has also introduced BBX – an express version of the original that takes less time and costs a bit less as well.  Goldwell’s Kerasilk treatment stands alone as our only customizable treatment that is tailored to your hair’s condition, texture and porosity…and the results last and last and last and last and well…you get the point!

So if you are contemplating a hair treatment in advance of the holiday rush, book your appointment with a McAllister stylist ASAP. Schedules are filling fast and time is running short!  Stop in for a consultation, text us to book an appointment or give us a ring.

Trendy Tones Talk from Our Hair Salon

It’s only March, but 2017’s latest hair color trends have already presented themselves in full force. This year is all about warmth and comfort – something we can definitely get behind – with buttery blondes, interesting oranges and rich browns taking center stage.

Step Up Your Hair Game This Spring 2017

We’ve consulted our veteran color gurus right here at McAllister to breakdown what’s hot and what’s not for 2017:

1. Bronde Hair

Aptly named “2017’s BIGGEST hair color trend” by Instyle Magazine, “Bronde” is a happy medium between bombshell blonde and rich brunette that women can’t seem to resist. While the color is nothing new to the world of hair, it’s showing no signs of going anywhere anytime soon, with trendsetting celebs like Gigi Hadid breathing new life into the ”˜do.

The trend fuses brown and blonde hues to create a sun-kissed look that instantly warms up winter-worn skin, yet won’t look out of place come spring. Bronde is universally flattering for all women as your stylist can play with levels of warm and cool tones to find the best combination to suit your skin.

2. Blorange Color!

The funkier, edgier cousin to the “Bronde” hair-do, “Blorange” (blood and orange) is the latest color craze to sweep Instagram, making it the color mix to watch this season.

Offering a fun alternative to the more subdued warm peaches, rose golds and strawberry blondes hues popular in 2016, Blorange (recently referred to as a “sunset on your head” by Refinery29) offers a beautiful shade somewhere between blonde and ginger. Its reddish undertones make it especially complimentary on fair and golden skin.

3. Hair Eclipting

A term coined by Aveda’s global artistic director for hair color, Ian Michael Black, “eclipting” translates the art of makeup contouring to the hair, using strategic color placement for added definition and dimension. And according to NYLON, it’s going to be the next ombre!

To achieve the look, stylists first color the whole head a deep, darker base, prior to artfully placing lighter highlights in strategic sections to accentuate the shape of the hair, while simultaneously contouring the face. Looking to thin out the cheeks?

A darker hue drawn down the lengths of face-framing pieces will do the trick! Rather concentrate on making your eyes pop? Nothing a bit of darker fringe can’t fix. The possibilities are endless!
