Scissors vs. Clippers
It always depends on the parents decision!!..some use clippers for religious purposes...but often enough...a good snip here and there with the scissors is the tool of choice. Neither tool can permanently take away curls..but if you want to hold onto them..point-cutting is the way to go. This means holding your scissors in a horizontal position and not vertical...Not only does this help preserve curls (while they last) but it can add texture and a softer look to any style you choose.
[06/29/15] Hello Everyone. I just wanted to give out Big Thank You's and Hugs to all my clients who have hung in there with me. There is nothing more exhilarating and scary than venturing out on your own in an attempt to star a business. I loved what I did at Pigtails & Crewcuts...but there is a saying "WOULD YOU RATHER MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE OR WORK FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO MAKE THEIR DREAMS COME TRUE". I will be updating during the week on hair topics, such as cleanliness, upkeep, and simple styles to get your out-for-the-summer kids through a busy week. Stay cool and hydrate hydrate hydrate, I cannot stress this point enough!!
STRESS-LESS SUMMER HAIR CARE
Oh yes...the summer time is here. This is a time to be stress-free, soak up some sun, and enjoy the pool. But whether you're enjoying chlorine-based or salt water pool, they can wreck havoc on your hair. Granted, there are products in the store you can use as a preventative treatment against these pools, but if you are looking for a quick remedy, conditioner or detangler will generally work. Applying it about an hour before you head out and once you come in from the pool, wash the hair with a daily cleansing shampoo to remove any conditioner, chlorine or saltwater. This technique is for virgin hair only; hair that is chemically treated should be covered with a cap. So go ahead and take that dip...its gonna be a hot one guys!!!
KIDZ KUTS.....JUST A HAIRCUT??
To some parents and even children, it can be a fun, harmless experience, but for others, it can be a big deal. In my years of working with children, it is often necessary to treat first, second, and even fifth haircuts as if its the first one. There is a need to re-introduce them to the tools you will be using, even the water bottle. Allow them to touch the tools while they're on and off so that they can warm up to the idea. It is always best to work around the comfort of the child and not your own. It is great not to overwhelm them, to be aware of their reactions and emotions and not to take anything they say or do personal. Some parents have asked me " When will he/she grow out of being afraid". My reply is always the same..."When they're ready". Its almost like potty training, when they are ready for the big girl/boy undies, they will definitely let you know. Placing yourself in their shoes will make for a better experience for the next visit. It is one thing for a stylist to say they cut children's hair, but to specialize in children's cuts is a whole different ballgame!!
THE FACTS OF LICE
Just saying the L word can make most of us itch. It is easy for the person who has not been through it to say "It will be okay". In reality, it will. Your personal hygiene and housekeeping skills have nothing to do with getting them. They thrive on warm bodies and clean hair and are transported through the use of sharing combs, brushes, hats, scarves, etc. Your pets or other neighborhood animals cannot pass head lice to humans. Although head lice happens less among African Americans, it can happen. Places that are Tropical and dry harbor different strands of head lice that are more adaptive to cling to a more coarser texture of hair. Head lice do not hop or fly so unless you are in close contact with an infected individual, it is less likely they will pass onto you. They do not survive long if they fall off a person and cannot feed but if still in the hair they can live for hours without breathing; this is why it is important if you are using home remedies. Any product, such as olive or tea tree oil, Cethaphil (gentle skin cleanser) and even dishwashing liquid that are used to eradicate these lil buggers has to be covered up with a shower cap overnight!!. Vacuuming the area where the infected individual has been, more than likely will do the trick in removing any potential lice or Nits that may be hanging aroung.
THE BIG BANG THEORY
Some may start to question themselves about cutting bangs for themselves or for their daughters. Whenever the question is brought to me I always have two remarks: 1) Bangs are like a pet..you have to love them, groom them and even if you dont like the things they do...give them a little time (sometimes alot) and they will get better!!..2) Face shape, hair texture and length/style of desired bangs can determine if you need to proceed. Hopefully the majority of us have a close relationship with our stylist by way of being honest with you or giving you alternatives that you can live with. Like Yoga pants and two-pieces...bangs are not for everyone and you should consult your stylist or do your own research to find out what is the best style for you or your daughter that will compliment the frame of your face
