Elements of Style – Beat the Heat Cheat Sheet

Elements of Style – Beat the Heat Cheat Sheet

A visit to the Salon should be the most relaxing experience, but if you are not careful and clear on your wants and needs it could be disastrous. If you find yourself in the salon, unsure of what to say and how to say it, here is a summer cheat sheet of information and topics to address while in the chair that will help you get the results you are looking for.

Consultation: What’s New

Before any great haircut is a great consultation. Even if you just saw your stylist two weeks ago, a lot has happened since then. Let them know of any changes in your routine or any new ideas that you have. Together you can work out the details on how to make you look and feel your best

Likes and Dislikes

Another good way to keep your grooming specialist in the loop is telling them what you like and don’t like about your style. The goal is to make sure that you leave the salon confident, but also that you feel the same way when you leave your house every morning. If you prefer to spend little to no time creating your look in the morning, or you are a product junkie, these key points will help your Specialist know how to fine tune your look and achieve your goal this summer.

Chlorine or Salt Water Maintenance

We all know that chlorine and salt water go hand and hand with summer, and we also know the damage that can occur. Using a clarify shampoo, like Bumble and Bumble’s Sunday Shampoo, once a week will rid your strands of this damaging build up. The great news is this type of maintenance is super easy and does not require any additional steps from you. 

Time in the Sun

Staying dedicated to using sun block this entire summer season is the key to a healthy and effortless summer. Don’t let those midday clouds fool you, the sun’s rays are a force. Routinely using a good SPF daily is the ticket to that healthy and relaxing fun in the sun you are looking for! Using Jack Black’s Oil Free Sun Guard is our No. 1 choice.

Remember not to neglect your maintenance routine during the summer months.  Studies have shown that looking and feeling your best every moment of every day is a key factor in your daily successes. More importantly, you deserve it. Before leaving your last appointment, take a few minutes to look at your calendar, and see if you can spot an open window to dedicate to yourself. A Boardroom Benchmark Service is just the kind of maintenance you need to relax, look great and feel confident.
