Keep the Right Hair Cut & Length You Love

Ever been to the hair stylist and had too much hair cut off? You’re not alone—according to Sam Villa, Education Artistic Director for Redken 5th Avenue, that’s the most common complaint from hair salon clients.

Here are some tips on how to be certain you get the best haircut that will keep your overall hair length intact.

“On average, hair grows half an inch a month,” says Villa. “So if you visit your hairdresser every eight weeks and only have an inch taken off, you can stabilize length and grow hair at the same time.” Be sure you and your hairstylist agree on the size of an inch—use the length between the tip of your thumb to your knuckle as a basic guide. (Or better yet, check out my article How to do Hair Talk)

“Another way to retain length is by altering the interior of the cut—leaving the perimeter as is and adding interest with disconnected layers. Or, ask your stylist to remove weight with blending shears on the inside of the cut.” You can also try bangs—side-swept if you’re cautious, or bold, blunt bangs if you’re feeling adventurous.

Consider layers like Mandy Moore’s to add shape while retaining your overall hair length.

Save Time on Back-to-School Hairstyles!

Screen Shot of Great Clips Wait Time App

School hairstyles just made easier!

In the next few weeks, families everywhere start organizing their calendars around the customary necessities and rituals of getting back-to-school.  Here is a new revolutionary service that can save you precious time on squeezing in those hairstyles for school.

Great Clips, Inc. has just introduced their new Online Check-In service. The new service allows you to add your name to the wait list at any Great Clips salon from your computer or iPhone.  Although Great Clips has always worked off the principle of low wait times, this gives the customer more control in managing their busy schedules.

“Not surprisingly, our research shows customers don’t want to wait,” says Rhoda Olsen, Great Clips CEO. “We’ve always been focused on keeping wait times low, but with Online Check-In we can make our customer’s wait even shorter; our test markets show about 80 percent of folks who check in remotely wait less than five minutes on average once arriving at the salon.”

What a great idea this is for everyone! If you’re busy out and about getting back-to-school supplies and clothes for the kids but also want to squeeze in haircuts, just log in to to see where and when the most convenient timing is for you. Your information is immediately put into the salon’s computer register and your name will appear on the wait list. Customers are taken in the order they were added to the list, whether they check in remotely or in person.

With back-to-school haircuts starting to fill salon chairs everywhere, you may find waiting periods longer, especially at family orientated salons like Great Clips. This innovative step by Great Clips seems especially timely for all to get familiar with using their new technology. And this service is sure to be helpful for not just the back-to-school group, but for anyone who wants to have more control on how long they wait for a haircut.

The new Online Check-In service is available at Great Clips’ 3,000 salons across the United States and Canada, including free iPhone and Android apps. Thanks Great Clips!!

Crazy Hair Style From NAHA Hairstyling Awards

You asked for funky hair styles, so just take a gander at what these hair stylists give you!

I love it! I wait all year to see the novel creations that hairdressers will whip up for the North American Hair Styling Awards. NAHA 2011 Awards Show was held last week in Mandalay Bay Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada. It is the most prestigious photographic beauty competition hair stylists can participate in. Give hair stylists a reason to create some funky hair styles and pair that up with some equally imaginative, photographers . . .and here you have it!

Hair designers from the United States, Canada, Great Britain, Australia and Switzerland contended to become the best in a specific category of their choice. These dedicated hairdressers work extremely hard to compete and are recognized with unlimited networking, educational and professional growth opportunity, not to speak of the confidence boost this work gives them.

Congratulations to all who participated . . . and may the force be with you!
