Oct. 30 — How to Achieve that Glass Hair Trend

Don’t worry, this isn’t some wild hair trend that actually incorporates glass into your style. The term “glass hair” simply describes a glass-like, shiny style. Due to the megawatt shine, this hairstyle nearly resembles a mirror.

So you want to try the trend? A new haircut is the first step. More geometric hair cuts, like the bob, will show off this style better. Also let your Scottfree stylist know this is the effect you want so he or she can choose the appropriate hair tones and glosses. A clear gloss coat at the salon can help seal the cuticle and create shine.

When styling your hair, before drying prep your hair with a heat protectant (we recommend Kersastase Nectar Thermique) and a shine product (try Sachajuan Styling Cream). If your hair is straight naturally with minimum frizz, rough dry it until it’s all the way dry. But if your hair is curly or prone to frizz, do a complete blow dry first to help smooth out hair.

After drying, smooth out locks with your flat iron and coat with a shine serum (try Sachajuan Shine Serum) to give a silky finish.

June 17, 2018 — Elevated Styles for Every Length

No matter your length, you — yes, YOU — can pull off an it-girl special occasion hairstyle. From date night to wedding season, summer is the best time to step up your style and try something new. Here are a few of our favs. Which one will you try?

Slick It Back: Slicked back hair is having a major moment. To avoid the style from looking wet or “hard,” blow dry or curl your hair forward first, then brush it back. This will create volume and sexy movement.

Twist & Shout: Twists are a great way to upstyle short hair. Create a “dirty” feel to the hair by using product like sea salt spray or dry shampoo. Twist the hair into your desired shape and pin it in. Remember: Always criss-cross your bobby pins, as they will achieve a better hold.

Bet On Braids: Braids on short hair are an easy way to create an the vibe of an updo without the look falling apart. Simply braid whatever hair will fit, and leave the rest out as part of your look. Voila!

May 2018 — Achieving the ‘Wet Look’

Wet look hair has been a huge trend for spring, with many celebrities opting for the slick style. But this style is tricky to achieve if it is not done correctly (think greasy vs. sleek). Not to fear: You can create this look for summer parties, weddings and any fun night out with a few simple tricks and tips from the stylists at Scottfree. Here’s how!

1.  Prep with an anti-frizz product: Most of these wet-looking styles actually start on dry hair and require a smooth, yet textured finish. Use an anti-frizz treatment like Kerastase Fluidissime, which assists in frizz control while allowing your natural texture to shine through.

2.  Texture is key: If you weren’t born with textured hair, you can create texture with the right product, like sea salt spray. We love Sachajuan Ocean Mist Texturizing Spray.

3.  Create volume near your hairline only: A big element to nailing the wet hair look is making sure your style has some volume near the front hairline and the crown area, with flatness at the back and sides. Volumizing mousse, like Sachajuan Root Lift, offers volume and hold for all hair types.

4.  Choose your preferred level of hold: The hold factor of your style is what will help it transition from day into night. Using a medium-hold crème will add shine to the hair, so your wet look is chic enough for daytime but strong enough to carry you into the evening. For a bolder wet finish, a firm holding gel will give you a high shine finish without making the hair look plastered or creating a flaky finish. Kerastase Forme Fatale is a great choice.

5.  Finish with a high-shine spray: A shiny sleek finish combined with a strong hold factor is exactly what is needed. Try Sachajuan Straight and Shine Spray to shine on.
