I have been a redhead for most of my life. And as any redhead will tell you, it’s the hardest color to keep and change. The biggest complaint I and many other boxed redheads have is color-fading. Color looks fabulous for a week or two, then, POOF! It turns brassy and looks tarnished. Ted Gibson Salon to the rescue! Their color system from L’Oréal Professionel, INOA Carmilane, has changed the way I look at red hair color.

Waiting for our hair session at Ted Gibson Salon!

Stylist extraordinaire Jason Backe of the Ted Gibson Salon said that, “Maintaining the vibrancy of red has always been a top concern of my clients. With INOA Carmilane, I can take my clients to a garnet shade with longer-lasting results!”

What makes this process so different you might ask? Well, its hi-tech formulation features a unique, multidimensional molecule that anchors the colorant deep into the hair fiber and actually bonds with the hair. It ensures a pure, intense color with unmatched fade resistance technology. It’s also ammonia-free, so no icky fragrance. This is by far the best red I have ever been!

Here I am 2 weeks later; I get stopped on the street by complete strangers asking me where I get my hair done and what shade I wear.

Since my initial coloring, I have been prolonging the color with INOA Color Care Protective Cream Shampoo and Conditioner, formulated for all hair types with argan oil and green tea. But the key to my shine has been another product, the L’Oréal Professionnel Expert Serie  Cristalceutic Radiance-Protecting Treatment.

I had this in-salon color protective service done by my stylist, Elisha. This extra step has color-protecting technology that physically traps and crystallizes color molecules deep within the hair fiber. The take-home weekly treatment will guarantee your color to be fade-free! If you love being a redhead, make sure you go to Ted Gibson Salon and get this VIP treatment your hair and color deserve! Trust me, you will be turning heads for weeks to come!

When it comes to hair, the holiday social swirl calls for looks that take your everyday style up a notch. But who wants to add gathering an arsenal of hair tools and products to the holiday to-do list? Aussie Celebrity Stylist Sarah Potempa calls on just one tool to take locks from flat to festive in a flash.

“I use hairspray for everything from all-day photo shoot styling to long-lasting red carpet styles, and it’s a secret weapon to help any look last and stay fresh,” says Sarah.

We’ve called on Sarah for her party-ready styles to take you from the office holiday party to a midday gift exchange to family gatherings and beyond. Read on for detailed how-to’s from Sarah’s personal Instagram page!

3 Best Tips To Touch Up Your Holiday Hair Color With Clairol And James Corbett Salon!

Hairspray is an essential tool for a holiday party ‘do, as it can be used to create instant volume and keep your style fresh from day to night, whether you’re going for voluminous curls or a sleek straight style. The key to using hairspray like a pro is to choose the right formula for your hair type and/or desired style.

As a general rule, the more natural the style and texture of your hair, the more flexible your hairspray should be. The more work you do to change your texture (straight to curly, frizzy to flat), the stronger the spray you need to fight humidity and keep your style intact. Keep these rules in mind when choosing and using a spray to suit your style:

· Touchable curls that last = FLEXIBLE HOLD HAIRSPRAY before curling (Aussie Mega Hairspray)

· Formerly frizzy hair that’s been flat ironed = MAXIMUM HOLD HAIRSPRAY after ironing (Aussie Instant Freeze Hairspray)

· An updo that you want to stay up = MEDIUM HOLD HAIRSPRAY before and after you style (Aussie You Can Shine Hi Hold + Hi Shine Spray)

· Bouncy and voluminous locks that won’t fall flat (especially at the crown) = MAXIMUM HOLD/VOLUME formula before styling (Aussie Aussome Volume Hairspray)

Undecided on the holiday hair you want to sport this season? Here are 3 of Sarah’s fave looks that are quick and easy to do, yet are super-chic for any affair!

Trim Your Topknot

When you’re running from the office to the holiday cocktail party, your everyday work topknot may become your default party style. Add instant holiday sparkle with an eye-catching accessory. 1. First, grab your Aussie Instant Freeze Aerosol Hairspray and spray your brush before throwing your hair up. 2. To change the look to an evening chic style, spritz across the roots and smooth the can over for a flawless, no-frizz finish. 3. Then, throw on a glam vintage-inspired headband for the ultimate party hair in minutes!

Gift Exchange Glam

A big, bouncy style with extra volume is a nod to old Hollywood, which always reminds me of the glamour of the holidays. But I rarely have time for a fresh style with the shopping, planning and celebrating! 1. Set your hair the night before with Aussie Sprunch Aerosol Hairspray and sleep with your hair in a loose topknot. 2. Wake up, throw on a cozy sweater and head to work in your messy topknot. 3. Right before the holiday gift exchange, pull down that bun for voluminous, “photo-ready” hair!

The hairstyles throughout the 1960s were so fabulous — filled with volume and curls!
To bring this look into 2014, first try shifting your part this holiday season. A center part can be oh-so chic. 1. For volume in your crown, spray Aussie Aussome Volume Hairspray under the roots, tease and set in large 2” hot rollers. 2. When your hair has cooled, slide out the rollers for big, soft waves. 3. Gather the top half of hair at the crown and criss-cross bobby pins to secure for holiday hair happiness!

The holiday season is pretty much synonymous with changing up your look. So, it’s never out of the question to give your hair color a much-needed boost. Whether you decide to go darker or lighter, Clairol has a color perfect for any occasion. And what better way to try out a new look than with the help of one of our favorite NYC salons, James Corbett Studio!

How To Get Salon Hair Color At Home – Review Clairol Expert Age Defy Color + James Corbett Studio

Now, I’ve seen the fantastic celebrity colorist before try out bright blonde Clairol color in the early spring. But, this time around, it was nice to try a more natural hue. I’m not lying when I say that I’m not (dark eyebrows much?) a natural blonde. It took me about two years, infinite salon visits and many awkward shades later to get to the icy blonde shade that I’m at today. With that said, it’s been a pretty interesting battle between my dark roots and lighter ends to achieve that solid platinum hue I simply love.

Being that I have some darker outgrowth coming through, James wanted to keep the look as natural as possible. Although I used a much lighter color on my last visit, to keep that proper balance of colors, we agreed on an ashy brown shade that blended easily into my cool blonde tones. Unlike my last appointment, which focused on using an all-over blonde color, James used Nice ‘n Easy in 8A-Natural Medium Ash Brown as a touch-up on the root area, since my natural hair is obviously so dark.

Review, B/A Style Photos: 3 Best Tips To Touch Up Your Holiday Hair Color With Clairol And James Corbett Salon!

Tip 1: When you dye your hair so light, brassiness is always an unwanted foe. That’s why instead of going back in with Born Blonde (my initial color from last visit), James chose a medium cool blonde shade, which gave me natural-looking coverage that blended well with my existing color.

Tip 2: Cooler tones help blondes avoid getting brassy. Too much warmth in the hair causes blondes to look a little more orange or yellow. To counteract that, you need to go for the opposite of warm and go cooler.

Tip 3: Warm shades tend to be labeled “warm” or “golden,” so you want to avoid those if you’re trying to counteract brassiness. When you think of cool blondes, you can think of icy or champagne blondes as sported by celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Shakira.

Are you ready to kick off the holiday season with some Angels? The 19th Annual Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight on CBS at 10/9c. And we got the scoop on their gorgeous cascading curls and waves from lead stylist backstage, Akki Shirakawa using ghd hair tools for that sexy bombshell hair we all have grown to adore! This year is quite special, since the Victoria’s Secret Angels went to London for the first time for their annual show!

A team of stylists created beautiful Angel hair using the portfolio of ghd styling tools. Backstage hero products included the cult ghd Curve Curling Tongs, which created the soft, undone waves seen on the 47 Angels walking in the show. An instant sell-out launch, the ghd Curve range of tongs and wands create healthier-looking curls that last for 24-hours.

“Curling in a non-uniform way added real fluid beauty to the hair,” said ghd’s Head of Global Education, Jo Martin. “The ghd Curve Tongs gave a long-lasting curl that ensured the girls could walk the runway then party afterwards.”

‘Hair with movement’ was key for each Angel to emanate that bespoke look. A mix of curls and waves were created using both the ghd Curve Classic Tong and Soft Curl Tong on sections of hair varying in size and thickness.

To ensure the finished look had a London edge, the ends of each section were left loose and uncurled. A blast from the ghd Air Hairdryer broke up the curls and finished the look. The curls and waves came into their own as the Angels took to the runway, moving and lifting into a halo of texture as they walked.

2. Style by dividing the hair into quadrants and applying smooth infusion™ naturally straight to each quadrant.

4. Straighten each quadrant using a flat iron.

5. Using a 1 1/2″ curling iron, curl 1″ subsections with a twist curl technique.

6. Starting approximately 2″ off base, wrap the hair loosely around the barrel with an open clamp, holding the last inch of hair with your fingers. Keeping a strong hold on the ends, gently slide the curling iron up and down 2 times in a continuous motion, including the ends in the clamp for a few seconds before releasing the curl.
