How to Get a High Ponytail with Short Hair

Spring is in the air and the latest hair trends for hair are also here at Ashley Grey Salon.  One of the most coveted spring and summer time hair styles is the high ponytail.  Yes, we all love the look of the long, cascading and casual but oh so chic updo; but what if our hair is not quite long enough to give us the cascading look we want?

Well, worry no more!!  Thanks to She by Socap Hair extensions, we offer a clip in 100% real human hair ponytail clip in.  We even offer bang and fringe clip ins for those desiring the bang look without having to cut their own hair.

All you have to do is flip your hair upside down and smoothly brush your hair to the highest point that you want and secure a no breakage hair band/tie into a pony.  It does not matter how short your natural hair is the pony.  All you need is a little of your natural hair to let hang.  Next, split your natural ponytail in half and secure with bobby pins on each half above the hair tie.  Then, you will secure the clip in right in the middle of the split hair.  After securing the clip in you will take the split halves down from the bobby pins and either tease or fluff up around the clip in or form a braid or circular shape around the clip in.  If you want some added effects, include the clip in bang or fringe from She by Socap.  Enjoy having that sexy cool high ponytail girls!

What to do with your wavy, frizzy hair when its rainy out

Most people freak out when its humid and rainy outside because their hair just puffs up and gets frizzy.  Dont let this happen to you.  Be proud of your hair being wavy  and encourage it to be what God wants it to be.  Your wavy, frizzy hair is like a diamond in the rough.  All you need to do is know the correct products to use in the correct order.  Curly or wavy hair does the best when the least amount of touch or friction is put on it.  First use the correct shampoo and conditioner such as Moroccan Oil Hair Moisture Remedy Shampoo and Conditioner.  Moisture is key to a smooth, frizz free curl.  Moroccan Oil is amazing because it is light weight but also very conditioning.  When your done shampooing and conditioning, and you’ve rinsed leave a little conditioner in your hair.  When your ready to dry off, do not squeeze out most of the water remaining in your hair.  Next, scrunch a curl cream such as Catwalk Curl Amplifier( my favorite) into your hair starting from the bottom and using a second application to the midshaft to the roots.  You can now twist the hair up into a towel leaving most of the water in the hair still and let it set in the towel.  Twist it tight.  Continue with your normal beauty routine, skin care, makeup or even chores around the house.  After your hair is about 30-50% dry in the towel, take the towel off and let air dry for an additional 10 mins.  I would then advise to spray a volumizing mouse such as Catwalk Root Boost and spray all in the root area and a little on the midshaft to ends.  Not too much so you dont make the hair too crunchy and hard.  You only want enough to give the hair a little texture, hold and volume.  You can then start to blow dry on a low heat and low volume setting.  Either use a diffuser or if you don’t have one you can cup the hair starting at the bottom of the hair (ends) and do not let go of the hair until dry.  If the blowdryer gets too hot on your hands move the dryer away from your hand.  The more you keep crunching with your hands while wet or even damp, the more it will disrupt the curl and make it frizzy and the curt will not be a smooth and conformed curl.  When that section is dry and set then take the same hand and cup the hair section from the middle of the hair shaft and so forth.  You will have amazing volume, shine, non frizzy and smooth curly hair that will stay for at least 2-3 days depending on your hair’s density.

YAY CURLS!

Organic Remedy for Treating Dirty Hair

Good morning all of my beauties!

Have you ever had those mornings where either you have just washed your hair, used too much of your favorite product and your hair is weighed down and looks like you haven’t washed it in days, or maybe you really haven’t. ;).  Maybe you have also used that last squirt of  your dry shampoo you’ve been meaning to go to the store and  restock up on….  Well. I have a little trick for you that most should have right in their kitchen cabinets. Use a little cooking flower. It works just as well or even better than re wetting and shampooing again or even baby powers. AND…. ITS TOTALLY ORGANIC!  Pinch some out of the bag, rub it in your hands and disperse wherever hair feels dirty. Just make sure to rub it in good just like it was baby powder or dry shampoo, especially for darker hair. Let me know your thoughts !
