The b.LUXE beauty beat Easy Breezy Summer Style
By Gina Woelfel
After a not-so-hot start to the summer, it’s finally getting warmer here in New England! The summer season is a time for fun in the sun, but it’s also a time when your beauty routine can feel more like a burden. When the sun’s out, you want to be out! Who has time for flat ironing or curling! At-home hair care can be time-consuming, especially if you’re trying to achieve a certain style that takes a lot of effort. If you’re looking for ways to streamline your look and simplify your summer hairstyle, consider these three salon services that, we feel, put more time back in your schedule.
1. The b.LUXE Blowout
If you’re working each morning to straighten your hair, try a professional blowout that leaves hair smooth and sleek for days! Summer weekends are magical and the faster you can get out there and enjoy them, the better. If you have a summer weekend that’s packed with events and parties, book yourself a b.LUXE blowout on Friday and let the fun roll in! Here’s the plan: Blowout on Friday means your hair is salon fresh and red-carpet ready for Friday night! Spray roots with dry-shampoo, twist in a top-knot bun and secure with a scrunchie overnight. Hair is full and wavy for Saturday play! If you’re hitting the beach or pool, keep your hair secured in a bun. Meeting your friends for dinner and drinks? Let your hair down and add a few waves with an iron or wand. Repeat the nighttime routine for Sunday and voilà! You just rocked three days of fabulous hair with minimal effort! And for those of you who have thick, more naturally textured hair, there’s no need to wash Monday. Just brush your hair back into a tight pony and you’re ready to start your work week!
2. The Cezanne Smoothing Treatment
For those of you who want a smooth, effortless, wash and go, style, there’s no better method than the Cezanne Classic Smoothing Treatment! It smooths all hair types, including straight, wavy, textured and curly hair. It’s non-toxic, 100% formaldehyde-free and doesn’t contain any aldehydes or harmful toxins found in similar products. Cezanne not only adds gloss and shine while it straightens, it makes the hair stronger and healthier, too. It’s revolutionary low pH formulation restores the bonds on broken or damaged hair. The Classic Treatment lasts up to five months and reduces blow dry time by up to 30%. You also won’t need to rely on extra styling products to get the look you want. The Cezanne Treatment gives you more flexibility and allows you to change your style without affecting your smooth results. If you want to wear your natural curls one day and flatiron it the next, go ahead, you can!
For the month of July, receive your choice of a complementary smoothing product with a Cezanne Smoothing Treatment, valued from $25 - $40
3 The DevaCurl Haircut
(aka the DevaCut)
Looking for a summer solution that will make your curly hair look its best? Say hello to the DevaCut! This unique approach to haircutting is specifically designed to showcase natural texture, and make styling your curls easier than ever. Most haircuts treat all hair textures the same way - your hair is wet, pulled straight, and then cut. For people with straight hair, this is a perfectly acceptable method. But, when you have curls, a cut like this usually results in an uneven nightmare. No two curls are the same. Curly hair wet is completely different from dry curly hair. One section can be perfect ringlets, while another might be more wavy. The solution: Dry cutting. By cutting the hair dry, in its natural state, our Deva stylist is able to cut the curls where they normally lay, thus creating a more balanced shape. This is the simple, but game-changing concept behind the DevaCut.
We hope you take some time for yourself and enjoy our summer style suggestions. Eliminating a few hours a week from your “to-do” list is always a good thing, especially during this beautiful time of year.
