At The Arthur Company Salon, our clients leave feeling confident and gorgeous! Choosing the right haircut for your face shape is so important. Here are some points to think about when discussing your next look with your stylist!
Heart– Side swept, soft bangs focus attention towards the eyes and away from a pointy chin. Mid-length loose curls draws attention to a strong jawline, without making it look harsh.
Long– Fringes hide a long forehead, making them very flattering on longer face shapes. Add a blunt bang or a soft side fringe to switch up your style and make it more flattering for you.
Oval– Long, textured, layered hair is great for an oval face shape. Adding layers accentuates your cheek bones, making it a very flattering cut. If you prefer shorter cuts, keep the back and sides trimmed and leave length & texture on the top, allowing your hair to highlight your facial features.
Round– The most flattering cut for a round face shape is any hairstyle that will make the face appear slimmer. Very short hairstyles generally won’t suit a round face shape as it makes your face appear bigger than it is; resulting in an unflattering style. If you are looking for a short cut, try making the front longer, an angled bob suits a round face- elongating it and making it appear more narrow and slim.
Square– A haircut that appears to narrow the face is ideal when you have a square shape. A modern bob is one of the most flattering cuts for a square face shape, softening the jawline. A center part with lots of textured layers tends to be a great cut for a square shape.
Do you find that during the Fall and Winter months your skin feels dry and flaky? Preparing your skin for the cooler months ahead is very important to keep your skin feeling and looking fabulous. Here are some tips to help get you through the cool months:
Exfoliate! Exfoliating is a very big part in keeping your skin looking and feeling amazing. Exfoliating removes the dry skin, and helps unclog your pores of dirt and debris before cleansing and moisturizing your skin. Exfoliate with an oil-based scrub. The summer sun and chlorine may have left your skin feeling dry and flaky. Oil-based scrubs are wonderful because they exfoliate and hydrate.
Maximize your Moisturizer! We just cant say it enough during the winter months to constantly moisturize your skin! As the air becomes drier, your skin needs a thicker moisturizer. Creams provide a stronger oily barrier, which means they both reduce water loss from the outer layer of skin and provide hydration to this layer of skin at the same time.
Your Lips need Love too! Start moisturizing now to prevent dry, cracked lips this winter. Use a non-petroleum based lip balm for best results.
After a long summer of sunbathing and swimming, your sun kissed hair is probably looking for some TLC. Follow these tips to bring great hair into the Autumn with you!
–Trim Split Ends: Split ends can be caused by many different hosts, one being heat styling. We all know that the humid summer months means extra time with your flat iron. The only way to get rid of split ends is to cut them, so book an appointment with your stylist for a dusting and get your ends nice and healthy!
–Replace Lost Moisture: Dry hair is a huge issue heading into the Autumn months. Use a weekly deep conditioning treatment (Moroccan Oil Intense Hydrating Masque works great!) to re-moisturize your locks. Simply apply the masque after shampooing. Blast your hair with your blow dryer on medium heat to allow the product to penetrate the hair shaft. Once your hair is warm, leave it on for 10 more minutes then rinse!
–Detangle With Care: Damaged hair is fragile hair. Be gentle and take your time. Apply a leave in conditioner prior to combing (12 Benefits or It’s A Ten are some of our favorites.) This will also act as a heat protector. Try using a wide toothed comb or a Wet Brush and detangle your hair starting at your ends.
–Tweak Your Color: As your tan fades, it is sometimes likely that your color will fade, as well. After the summer and excessive exposure to the sun, salt, and chlorine you may realize your color isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s washed out or brassy. Refer to your stylist for a gloss to replace shine and luster or to change up your look for the fall! Always remember to consult with your stylist before trying to fix your color on your own, as you may end up with less than desirable results.
–Rinse With Cool Water: Rinsing with cool water will seal your hair’s cuticle, making your hair smoother and less frizzy. Try adding a drop of essential oil to your styling products to also add extra shine!
