A few pro hair tips from Tracy @ Salon Allegra

I get asked a lot of questions about hair but probably the

most frequent one is how my clients can style hair the same

way I style it in the salon, It takes a few years and a few

classes but here’s what I have figured out:

1. Move slower. A lot of times hair is something that people

really care about, but they don’t spend enough time on it.

And it’s okay to spend time on your hair. Adding 10 more

minutes into your morning can make a world of difference.

2. When flat ironing, or curling your hair, slowly glide the tool

through your hair at an even speed. Racing the flat iron over

a section, large or small, will be completely ineffective.

3. Don’t be afraid to get right down to the roots. Nothing

screams amateur quite like flat hair at the roots, and volume

at the ends. Yes, round brushing helps that, but sometimes all you need is to inch that flat iron just a little closer to your

scalp for lift!

4. Do not be afraid of hair products. Use them! Generously!

When I’m showing a client just how much root lifter, or hair

spray, or straightening serum to use, they are usually

surprised. If you are going to pay for good hair products, you

deserve good hair. Use the products!

5. There is no such thing as a cute “wash and go” style. It

will usually always look like flat and unmanageable in about

an hour. Just go ahead and decide that you have to do

something to your hair if you care about how it looks.

6. The reason movie stars hair always looks great 1/2 up or

in a ponytail is because they began with well styled hair. If

you style your hair as if you are going to wear it down, put

some hairspray or finished products in it, and simply pull it

back, it will style much easier. It’ll have more bounce. It’ll

have more “grip” with the Bobby pins and ponytail holder.

7. Blow dry upside down and finish will a “cool shot” of air all

over. It’s an easy way to get lots of volume.
