The One Question We Can’t Answer About Going Blonde  by Salon Cirillo (604) 590-6739
A lady called us and said, “I’ve got brown hair. How long will it take me to have an Elizabeth Hasselbeck type of blonde?”

That’s kind of like asking, “How many angels can sit on the head of a pin?”

Naturally, we couldn’t answer it. Why? We have to see her hair!

You see, all hair has a base color . Without examining her base color, it’s impossible to determine what steps we need to take to get that type of blonde, and how long it would take her to achieve the look she wanted.

We also need to look at her skin tone to see if the color she wants flatters her face.

Hair color is a science, and each person is different. That’s why a consult is the foundation of beautiful color.

One more thing. DNA plays a huge part in coloring your hair. We can give the lady who called us Elizabeth Hasselbeck-like color, but it won’t be the EXACT color because each person’s DNA expression is unique.

And that’s a good thing! Find a picture of a hairstyle you love. Bring it with you and let it be your guide. You are unique. So is your hair. Enjoy it!

How To Update Your Hair Color      By: Salon Cirillo  (604) 590-6739  Deltaprofessional-hair-color2

 

You want a change but the actual thought of a color overhaul is terrifying. We get it. So consider these three little steps to soothe your anxiety and still make a change.

 

  1. Enrich your natural color. Find shades in your hair color family and bring out the rich undertones by adding more of that shade.

 

  1. Go one or two shades in either direction of your natural color. This is a simple and not too extreme way to make a change.

 

  1. Talk to your stylist about your wardrobe. Seriously! Do you wear earth tones or do you lean towards greys and black? This will help us determine what color is placed where.

 

You’re in good hands. Your beauty is our business!  Call us at Salon Cirillo Hare Care (604) 590-6739 to make your consultation appouintment with our stylists.

Are You A Candidate For Frizz Free Hair?

By Salon Cirillo  Delta (604) 590-6739

Maybe your hair has seen a bit too much wear and tear. Or, maybe the frizziness of naturally curly hair has you seriously considering a buzz cut.

Whatever the reason, we beg you to re-consider before taking such drastic action!

There is a highly effective and safe solution for over processed, chemically damaged hair, and totally frustrated naturally curly hair.

The gentle formulation of Goldwell KeraSilk hair straightening system allows us to work with any hair type, including salon-colored hair.

Goldwell KeraSilk smoothes curly or frizzy hair, leaving you with the hair you’ve always wanted, a brilliant shine, manageability, and tons of possibilities for hairstyles for upto 5 months!

Unlike other hair straightening and repair systems, Goldwell KeraSilk does not have an intensive pre-treatment. There are no harsh chemicals and no formaldehyde, but there are the rich, raw materials of keratin,with the most advanced keratin technology available today.

And the results are instant. You will not have to wait 72 hours to wash and style your hair, either. You can do it immediately after the treatment, if you choose.

To maintain your salon results, we recommend the Goldwell KeraSilk aftercare products. What’s so special about these products?

Unlike regular shampoo and conditioner, they do not strip your hair of keratin, which would reverse the salon treatment results. Instead, with Goldwell KeraSilk products, you get plenty of nourishment, which replenishes the treatment. (Wait until you use the deep conditioning daily mask! It’s incredible.)

The smoothing shine serum protects against thermal appliances, softens, and gives your hair shine from roots to ends.

See why we love Goldwell KeraSilk hair straightening system so much? It puts you and the health of your hair first.

“Will Coloring My Hair Damage It?”  By Salon Cirillo  Call Us (604) 590-6739

Colour Special

This is a question we hear from time to time from our clients. They want a change, but they’re concerned that coloring their hair will cause damage. So, let’s set the record straight.

Color is individually formulated. From your choice of color to added highlights or lowlights, we create a look that’s totally yours. But before we snip or paint a single strand, we evaluate the condition of your hair.

If it’s already damaged, your first priority—and ours—is to get your hair healthy again! That means regular trims with deep conditioning treatments both at home and in the salon—no coloring!

Coloring damaged hair is a prescription for disaster and we won’t do it.

Salon color is good for your hair.

Unlike nasty box color, we open the hair cuticle so that the color penetrates deeply. (Box color simply coats the hair.) Then, as part of the coloring process, we add deep conditioning agents to close up the cuticles and seal in your color.

Not only do you get healthier hair, you have full coverage color that’s beautiful and long lasting—even with resistant gray!

The point is you’ve got plenty of color choices to create beautiful, multi-dimensional healthy hair that’s just as unique as you are!

Are you loosing hair for some unexplained reason? It could be your thyroid gland.

This small gland, shaped like a butterfly, is located on both sides of your wind pipe. It could be the culprit in your hair loss. It produces hormones that regulates many of your bodies other hormones and functions and especially your metabolism. This regulator of both body and mind sometimes goes haywire, particularly in women. And can happen at any age.

When these hormones become too high or too low, you can experience many different symptoms. Some symptoms may include, hair loss, fatigue, unexplained weight gain no matter how much you work out or diet or even weight loss no matter how much you eat and even feeling too cold or too hot.

Both hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can cause your hair to fall out.

Getting the right diagnosis and treatment is critical to feel your best and avoid any serious health problems. If you think you may have symptoms of thyroid problems, see your doctor and ask to be tested.

 

So You Colored Your Hair At Home And Now You Need Help By Salon Cirillo Call Us (604) 590-6739

So You Colored Your Hair At Home And Now You Need Help

There’s no need to stay in hiding and we won’t say we told you so, although we will do a bit of hand wringing!  We’ve seen it many times before. Blotchy color or color left on too long and it dried out your hair, or worse, hair that breaks off!  It’s not pretty and we do our best to correct the damage. But you must understand one thing. When you come in for help with a bad color application, it may take more than one session with us to correct the problem. We simply don’t have a magic wand.  And damage is, well, damage. So be gentle with yourself and with us! Coloring your hair requires knowledge and techniques that aren’t available to the general public. That’s why most cosmetology schools require at least 1,000 hours of book work and hands on application to successfully complete school. We absolutely don’t want you to feel bad about trying to color your own hair. And yes, there are some benefits to it, like doing it on your schedule and not ours.  And of course, the cost. Just know what you’re really buying!  Some hair dyes contain chemicals that aren’t approved for human use, yet still find a way onto the store shelf and into your hair .So is it really just “a box of color?”

Get a good hair cut! It all begins right here. Without a good hair cut, nothing else you do will give you the results you want.

In order to have a good hair cut, you need a great hair stylist and when you find one, keep him/her! Jumping around from stylist to stylist can behazardous to your hair. The old adage about “getting what you pay for” is very true when it comes to something as important as your stylist. Yes, it’s possible to find a good stylist at the “fast hair” shops, but the cost to your hair while searching may be more than you care to spend.

Keep your hair clean! There’s nothing worse than dirty, oily hair that hangs in clumps.

Use the correct shampoo for your hair type. Not all hair is created equal.

If you have oily hair, do not shampoo every day. As paradoxical as it seems, clean hair makes the problem worse because it allows the oil to seep into the glands making it much more difficult to deal with. Stay away from those “all in one” shampoos. Use a ph-balanced shampoo when you do wash your hair and scrub it well. You may need to change shampoos, so ask your stylist what he or she recommends. Another tip is to avoid oily foods as much as you can. It just contributes to the problem. Eat more fruits and vegetables. Whatever you do, stay away from products that are supposed to make your hair shine! Also do not use conditioner unless you apply it to the ends of the hair strands. Keep it away from the scalp!

Hair looking drab? Need a change? Try a few highlights. It can do wonders for brightening up your hair and face.

Wanna’ try some curls but don’t want the damage of a perm? Try a curling iron and/or hot rollers. Hot rollers will give you more control, but you won’t get those wispy, trailing curls. That you will have to do with the curling iron.

Do not try and curl freshly cleaned hair. Try and remember to shampoo the night before. Squeaky clean hair can sometimes give you difficulty with holding a curl.

Never use a “sticky” hair spray before curling your hair with a curling iron or hot rollers. You can cause damage.

If you are fortunate to have naturally curly hair, have your stylist cut it in layers to take advantage of the new cascading curly look.

If you are athletic, keep your lifestyle in mind when selecting a “do.”

If you are blonde or have gray hair do not use any coal tar shampoo product for dandruff as it may permanently stain your hair.

Have you ever almost fallen asleep in a stylist’s chair because you felt sooo relaxed? Another good reason for visiting Salon Cirillo !

Although we all thought the worst of winter is over, clearly Mother Nature has other plans. The sudden snow fall and chilly air not only causes dry skin, but those dreaded fly-aways and hat hair none of us enjoy. We found a great article written by Redken National Education Director, Terry Ritchey , sharing some hot tips that will help you combat those hair woes. Here is what Terry Ritchey had to say!

  1. How does the texture/appearance of hair change in the colder weather?

With the lack of moisture in the air, the hair appears less supple and has a duller appearance due to the extreme dryness. The hair usually feels more dry and brittle as well.

  1. What hair care habits should be avoided during the winter months?

Excess blow drying and overuse of hot tools such as curling irons and straightening irons should be avoided. Products from the Heat Styling Collection will provide added protection and a beautiful shiny finish.

  1. What should be done to protect hair during winter months?

Avoid HOT showers as they can be very drying for both the hair and the skin.

  1. Any tips for dealing with “hat hair”?

A light mist of water with a few drops of Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine added to the bottle can be a great way to perk up hair that has been flattened by a hat. A pair of wet hands can also do the trick when nothing else is available.

  1. What type of products should be used during the winter?

Moisture, moisture, moisture! The use of conditioners can be especially helpful as they create less friction, which creates less static electricity, which creates less fly away hair. Leave in conditioners can also be a great addition to your routine in the winter months.
