This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things | Hair Styling in Saint Joseph, MN | Elise Marcus Salon

I’m sure we’ve all seen that one guy or girl on the bus whose hair is horribly atrocious. Think about bad hair, and then imagine even worse.  We DO NOT want you to ever be that guy. Do you ever wonder why you get split ends, and are then required to get a haircut? This is especially frustrating when you are trying to grow it out, isn’t it? Well, the reason we can’t have nice things (nice hair) is because we do not give it a chance to be natural and healthy.

Many environments, conditions and accents effect and even damage our hair.  Heat, the products we use, when we brush our hair, and how often we get perms or other chemical treatments (like changing up your color) can prohibit us from having nice things. It is no secret heat is damaging to hair and can cause severe dryness and split ends.  Curling, straightening, blow-drying, crimping, etc. Another reason your hair might be falling short is the products you use to keep it up.  Shampoos and conditioners sometimes have plastics and “fillers” in them which actually damage your hair and scalp.  Brushing your hair is good for it!  It moves the natural oils from your scalp down the strands of your hair, and it keeps the strong and healthy strands in place and untangled.  By brushing your hair daily, it will become less greasy and easier to handle.  Perming, coloring and other chemical treatments inevitably damage your hair to some extent.  But to cut down on their damaging effects, one thing is simple: do not do them as often.  About every four to six months is the best range.

Tune in for tomorrow’s blog on how we can get nice things!

Highlights That Are Too Bright

This post will finish off this series about ‘Elise Marcus Salon’s Pet Peeves’ with highlights –

 

I hear this a lot!!!!

Ugh! I got my hair highlighted today. I wanted a slightly different look but they are a bit too blonde for me. Is there a way to tone this down?

The whole point of getting highlights is to lighten up your color. If you’re looking to be a platinum blonde it should be a slow and steady process and should be professionally done or else you’ll end up with a high-contrast and a burnt out look.

Wrong Colored Highlights!

Any time you color your hair,  you need to consider how it will look with your complexion. Consider highlights having the same effect. If you have dark hair color and light skin tone, a dark auburn or burnt brunette highlight would be a good choice.

Highlights can add a glowing, sun-kissed look to any hair. Even if you have dark hair, you can find the right shade to give you a natural-looking highlight, as well as complement your darker hair.

If you do not go to a professional stylist such as Cami Theisen, a lot can go wrong with highlights. Another ‘pet peeve’ for highlights of ours at Elise Marcus Salon, is using the wrong hair color, leaving the hair color in for too long or just simply not knowing what you’re doing can lead to disastrous results. Instead of stripping the highlights out of your hair (which will ultimately strip your natural hair color) there is a trick that many stylists use to tone down the highlights.

Does this Spark a highlight idea for you?

Stringy or Spotty Highlights

Highlights are one of the most difficult hair colors to master

Highlights are one of the most difficult hair colors to master. They can brighten your look, frame your face and compliment any outfit. When highlights are done poorly, they can be consuming and out-dated. Here at Elise Marcus Salon is just one of our favorite “pet peeves.”

Too Chunky – We really don’t think this was ever an official trend. Well, perhaps in the 90’s chunky highlights were in. But it has not been the 90’s for quite awhile.

High contrast, chunky highlights have always been a hair stylists’ nightmare. This style is anything but modern and can be difficult to repair.

Kelly Clarkson, as talented and wonderful as she is, has always been a very bad offender of the chunky highlights. Luckily Kelly has gotten over chunky highlights and gone more natural recently, but like Cami Theisen, from Elise Marcus Salon, says: “we won’t miss the those American Idol days”.

Follow along with us tomorrow and we will tell you another one of our “highlight pet peeves”.
