Men’s Hair: Are You Married To Your Hairstyle?

Men’s Hair: Are You Married To Your Hairstyle?

Calling all guys! When was the last time you changed your hairstyle? Seriously… If you’re still sporting the same look you had in high school or college, it’s probably time for a change. In fact, you could be married to your hairstyle without even knowing it.

Updating your hairstyle doesn’t mean you have to change your identity. Instead, it’s about staying current with the times. However, if you haven’t changed your men’s hairstyle in years, don’t feel bad. In fact, you’re probably not alone. That’s why the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE Salon have put together the following reasons you should consider changing your hairstyle for an updated look.

Change Is Good

While you may be content with the same men’s hairstyle you’ve been rocking for the past 10 years, it’s important to roll with the times. What may have been popular back then probably isn’t so much now. In fact, think about how much you’ve changed. Over time, things have happened to you that can influence how your hairstyle looks. Sometimes we grow slimmer or even perhaps wider. Since we aren’t who we were yesterday, we certainly don’t want to remain the same, do we? Embrace a change. You’ll thank us later.

Boost Your Confidence

Life isn’t easy. We encounter consistent challenges, conflicts, and trials every day. While this is an essential part of life, it can also leave us feeling a little flat. A new men’s hairstyle can be an easy, simple and effective way to boost your self-confidence. Unless you book a classic crew cut but end up with a Jim Carrey inspired bowl cut, it’s almost impossible to walk out of a salon without a little spring in your step. Not only will your hair look fresher, you’ll also spend the next week or so graciously accepting compliments from family and friends. What’s not to love?

Transform Your Image

Another reason to change your men’s hairstyle is the desire to transform your image. As we get older, we tend to reinvent ourselves by changing jobs, switching careers, buying a new home or try new clothing styles. Changing your hairstyle is not different. As times change you may want to opt for something more sophisticated while other times you may want to boost your sense of freedom with a more creative look. Besides, who wants the same men’s hairstyle their entire life? As our style changes, so do our wants, needs, attitudes, and outlook on life.

Age Adjustment

Be honest. Who really wants to look their age? When we are young, we want to look older. When we are older, we want to look young. The good news here is that you can add or subtract years just by making adjustments to your men’s hairstyle. Even better? The changes don’t have to be huge to make an impact. All you need to do is visit unDONE Salon and tell your Boise hair salon stylist what you’re hoping to get from your look. They will be able to make a judgment based off of your facial features, coloring, and style to help you choose a new cut or haircolor that will achieve your goals.

unDONE Salon

In the end, it’s important to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist. Let them know you are thinking of a change and discuss your ideas and get their recommendations. Whether you want something short or long, we can provide you with a trim or cut to help you transform your image while maintaining a sharp and sophisticated look.

Maintaining Your Haircolor Investment During The Summer Months

Maintaining Your Haircolor Investment During The Summer Months

Stepping out of unDONE with a fresh new look is one of the best feelings in the world. Summer, however, comes with it’s own set of challenges when it comes to maintaining a haircolor investment. Trips to the pool combined with exposure to the sun can not only discolor your hair but cause it to fade faster than normal. If you want to maintain your hair’s vibrancy throughout the summer, check out the following hair care tips for color-treated hair.

Don’t DIY Dye

Opt for a professional haircolor treatment instead of a DIY box dye. Ask your Boise hair salon stylist about the colors they would suggest and which one is more likely to last the longest. Unlike a one size fits all box dye, your Boise hair salon stylist will consider many important factors before customizing a formula with different hues in order to achieve the best haircolor possible.

Protect Your Hair

While swimming is a favorite summer pastime, a dip in the pool can wreack havoc on your haircolor. The chlorine used to disinfect and keep pool water clean can bleach your hair, causing it to turn green and dull faster than normal. If swimming is something you do often, make sure to throw your hair up in a bun to keep it from getting wet or soak it in clean water to prevent it from absorbing damaging levels of chlorine.

Cover Up

When it’s a beautiful day outside, you’ll want to spend your time outdoors. However, the sun can not only discolor your hair but leave it dry and damaged. To prevent this from happening, it’s important to cover up with a hat or go outside in the mornings or evenings when the sun is less intense. Damaging UV rays are the strongest between the hours of 10 am and 4 pm, so it’s important to protect your haircolor investment during this time.

Use Salon-Grade Products

TRUST us on this one. What you use on your hair will make a huge difference when it comes to the longevity of your haircolor. It’s important to invest in salon-grade products specially formulated for color-treated hair. Using the products your Boise hair salon stylist suggests will not only protect your haircolor investment but add shine, volume, and luster.

Rinse With Cold Water

Rinsing your hot summer skin with cool water is not only refreshing it’s good for your hair. Just like when you wash your clothes, cold water will help lock in your haircolor when you’re sudsing up. While it’s a good idea to give your hair a break by washing it every 2-3 days, it’s just as important to keep the water cool to prevent your haircolor from going down the drain.

Visit unDONE Salon

If you would like more tips on maintaining your haircolor investment throughout the summer, contact the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE. We promise to provide you with a professional haircolor that lasts, leaving you with healthier more beautiful hair in the process. To book your next haircolor treatment, call us at (208) 287-2010 today or schedule an appointment online!

 

Fantasy Haircolor by Heather Braswell

Fantasy Haircolor At unDONE Salon

Bright, vibrant, fantasy haircolors are all the rage and are in very high demand these days. Thanks to social media channels like Instagram and Pinterest, creative colors like blue, pink, purple, cotton candy, mint green, orange, etc., are being showcased using opal, oil slick, peek-a-boo, mermaid, rainbow, sunset, dip dye, and pastel hair coloring techniques. From soccer moms to CEO’s, the trend is not only growing but becoming increasingly “normal” as people from all different backgrounds choose to express their creative side using fun, vivacious haircolors.

Throughout history, wild haircolors have been used as a way for people to express themselves. With a dynamic rise in popularity, fantasy haircolors have also created a rise in acceptance. During the 1970’s, the punk movement helped separate people from mainstream society with fluorescent hair trends. Following that time during the 1980’s and 90’s, it wasn’t uncommon to see famous celebrities expressing themselves through different haircolor trends while influencing people to stand out from what was considered the “norm”.

Now, in 2017 men and women of all ages are loving the uniqueness of brightly colored hair. Pink and blue are no longer considered punk or any other status quo. In fact, at unDONE Salon, we see more and more clients of every age craving some adventure with their hair.

While not all employers find certain colors appropriate for a work setting, we’ve found ways to customize an exclusive color placement just for you. Why not have the best of both worlds? Our Boise hair salon stylists are trained in color placement and application so we can create a peek-a-boo look that’s only visible when you want it to be.

At unDONE Salon, we can provide you with the creative, and beautiful haircolor you’ve always dreamed about. Not only are our Boise hair salon stylists trained in the very latest haircolor techniques but can recommend the shampoo and hair products to ensure the longevity of your color. Whether you’re looking for vivid haircolor, fantasy haircolor, highlights, ombre, sombre, balayage, flamboyage, or something drastically new, our staff has got you covered! Call us at (208) 287-2010 or book your appointment online!

In last week’s blog, we covered hairstyle tips for people with round faces. This week, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE would like to extend the topic by offering some suggested guidelines for those genetically blessed with an oval or heart shaped face.  Oval Shaped Faces For those blessed with an oval face, good news! You can pull off just about any hairstyle you want. In fact, most people with different face shapes tend to style their hair to give the illusion that their face is more oval. However, the Boise hair salon stylists at unDONE have a few tips when it comes to deciding what cut you might like to try.   Tip #1: Add Some Layers At unDONE, we recommend adding layers to really highlight the features you like most about yourself. Another suggestion? Try adding layers around your cheekbones, lips or chin to really frame your face and showcase your best features.    Tip #2: Change Things Up! A distinctive, modern cut or haircolor can really brighten things up and give you a new look! While we often like to keep our hairstyle the same because we’ve grown accustomed to it, wearing the same cut, style or color for years at a time can actually make us look older. At unDONE, we recommend choosing a new cut that fits your personality. Try adding some highlights or lowlights or think about trying a shorter style if you’ve always had long hair. However, it’s important to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist to help you choose the perfect look.   Tip #3: Embrace Your Natural Beauty If you’re happy with your look, it’s important to embrace your natural hair and texture. While it’s fun to straighten and curl your hair for special occasions, the time, money and damage aren’t always worth it. Instead, learn to love your natural beauty!  Heart Shaped Faces For those blessed with a heart shaped face, you more than likely have killer, sexy cheekbones. Heart-shaped faces tend to have a wider brow with a narrower chin. The good news? There is a variety of fun, elegant and simple haircuts that look wonderful on heart shaped faces.    Tip #1: Try A Long Bob A long bob is known to soften hard facial features. This shoulder length haircut can really frame your beautiful heart face and draw attention away from a strong jawline. In fact, a long bob can be particularly good for anyone who feels a little self-conscious about their prominent cheekbones or jawline.    Tip #2: Long, Side-Swept Bands Long, side-swept bands are a great choice for those who have a narrow chin. Opting for this look can help redirect attention from your chin and help soften your face. However, if you are thinking about going with a more blunt choice in bangs, make sure to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist about the width they recommend. You don't want to add addition width to your brow if you have a heart-shaped face.    Tip #3: Deep Side-Part If you want to open up your face and show off those amazing cheekbones, try going with a deep side-part. With some proper makeup techniques, this hairstyle will help showcase all the best features your face has to offer! Contact unDONE Salon At unDONE Salon, we offer personalized consultations when it comes to choosing the best hairstyle for your face shape. Our Boise hair salon stylists are more than happy to answer any questions you may have to help you settle on the perfect style that highlights all your best features. We want you to walk out of our salon feeling brand new and beautiful, whether it’s a dramatic or subtle change your looking for.

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Choosing the Right Hairstyle

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Choosing the Right Hairstyle

Choosing a new hairstyle can boost your confidence and change your life. While it’s easy to find a variety of hairstyles you like online, it’s important to find a hairstyle that is perfect for you. While nothing compares to the professional advice of a Boise hair salon stylist, we would like to provide you with a few basic guidelines to help you decide on the perfect look for your hair.

#1 Face Shape. When considering a new hairstyle, it’s important to determine the shape of your face. Do you have a round face, heart face, or long oval face? It’s all about framing your face to bring balance your overall features.

#2 Hair Texture. Certain hairstyles complement different hair textures. While we all want what we can’t have it’s important to make a reasonable decision when it comes to achieving the hairstyle we desire. Choosing a hairstyle based on your hair’s texture will not only provide you with a great style but make it easier to manage on a daily basis.

#3 Lifestyle. How much time to do you have to spend on your hair each day? While it’s fun to play up your features with a new look, it’s important to factor in your lifestyle and whether or not you will have the time to maintain a high-maintenance hairstyle each day.

#4 Play Down Flaws. In the same way a hairstyle can highlight certain features, it can also draw unwanted attention away from features you don’t like. For example, if you dislike the size of your neck, forehead or ears, you can choose a hairstyle that helps cover or downplay them.

#5 Haircolor. When it comes to a new hairstyle, a beautiful haircolor can transform your appearance making you feel fresh while boosting your self-confidence. Keep in mind, however, that picking the wrong haircolor can come with disastrous results. That’s why it’s important to ask your Boise hair salon stylist for advice when it comes to what they feel would be the best choice for your skin tone, hair type, etc.

Haircolor Correction at unDONE Salon

Haircolor Correction at unDONE Salon

Like a magic wand, a new haircolor can transform your drab, dull locks into glorious hair. Not only can it eliminate the signs of aging by covering pesky gray hairs, it can also provide in-depth shine and brilliant color. While haircolor has the marvelous power to transform a brunette into a blonde, a redhead into a raven beauty or vice versa, it can also come with a variety of drawbacks. Not all colors look good on everyone. In fact, the haircolor you decide to go with should depend on a variety of factors such as hair texture, facial features, complexion and haircolor trends.

Haircolor Disasters

Is your current haircolor already out of style? Do you regret copying the haircolor of your favorite celeb? Or did an experiment going from brunette to blonde fail miserably and now you have Oompa Loompa hair? It doesn’t matter if you dyed your hair at home using a DIY box haircolor or chose the highest priced hair salon in Boise, haircolor results can sometimes take a weird detour and come out in any hue (except the one you anticipated).  If this has happened to you, stop worrying and start thinking about a haircolor correction treatment at unDONE Salon. Our dedicated team of Boise hair salon stylists have seen it all and can help you recover from any haircolor disaster.

Haircolor Correction

Never try to tackle a haircolor disaster on your own. You need a talented Boise hair salon stylist to correct your haircolor. If you do try to correct your haircolor at home, you may end up making matters worse or even damage your hair. At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists have perfected the technique of correcting haircolor without causing unwanted damage.

Keep in mind however, that haircolor correction is a process. While some color corrections can be done in a few hours, others need multiple treatments over a period of time. Achieving your desired haircolor depends on a variety of factors that include your current color, desired color, your hair’s porosity and how much time it takes to fix it.

While correcting a haircolor disaster can seem overwhelming, the team at unDONE Salon can help you achieve amazing results anytime you want to change your look. Our Boise hair salon stylists know the correct way to color your hair without damaging it in the process. No matter what shade or tint you want, we will customize a haircolor just for you. We promise personalized results every time!

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Why You Should Never Use DIY Box Haircolor

Boise Hair Salon Tips: Why You Should Never Use DIY Box Haircolor

It takes years for a Boise hair salon stylist to master the art of haircolor. Factors to take into consideration are formulas, hair type, hair condition, ratios, previous colors, etc. That’s why a stylist will always consult with you before picking and carrying out a desired look. Even then, it can take a few attempts to get the haircolor just right.  

At unDONE, we want you to feel good knowing your Boise hair salon stylist knows what their doing. We can help take the stress out of haircolor while providing you with a look  you can feel good about every time you look in the mirror. That’s why we’ve put together a list of reasons why you should never attempt a DIY haircolor:

YOUR HAIRCOLOR SHOULD ALWAYS MATCH YOUR SKIN TONE

When your Boise hair salon stylist mixes the perfect haircolor for your hair, they take the time to consider your natural skin tone among many other factors like underlying pigment, percentage of grey, etc. Your ideal haircolor will depend on the unique combination of these factors. DIY box haircolor is a one-size-fits-all solution that simply cannot take into account all of these elements.

DIY BOX HAIRCOLOR CANNOT PROVIDE EVEN APPLICATION

It’s important to understand that it’s virtually impossible to achieve an even, well-balanced look on your own. To create a natural look your Boise hair salon stylist applies haircolor from the re-growth line to the demarcation line. Color overlapping can lead to dark spots (banding) which looks unprofessional. Additionally, a stylist may use up to 10 different colors to achieve the look you want. That way they create a haircolor that is customized for you and only you.  

DIY BOX HAIRCOLOR CAN BE DAMAGING

Many DIY box haircolors contain harsh ingredients that can strip your hair and damage the cuticles. Instead, a Boise hair salon stylist  will choose a formula with the lowest peroxide to achieve shine tone while minimizing damage. They will also use products to balance PH levels to lock in haircolor to prevent it from fading. DIY box hair color can leave you with hair that looks and feels like straw. Once your hair has been destroyed, it can take a long time, and a lot of money to repair it.

THE COLOR ON THE BOX IS NOT ALWAYS ACCURATE

Ever stood in front of a selection of dyes with a million haircolor ideas running through your head? Don’t be fooled by the gorgeous celebrities on the box. The truth is a stylist professionally dyed their hair, and in reality less than 5% of people using box haircolor will actually get what they want.  In fact, your hair can turn a hideous orange when you were only looking to lighten it by one shade. That’s why it’s important to understand that a one-size-fits-all haircolor may not react as it should on certain hair types. Do you really want to take that chance?

IT WILL COST YOU $$$ IN THE LONG RUN

That $10 DIY box haircolor won’t feel that affordable after a $200 color correction on your orange hair. Instead, talk to your stylist when it comes to making an informed, and educated decision when it comes to your desired haircolor. Not only will they factor in your natural hair type & texture, they can adjust formulas based on its condition. A professional haircolor will leave you with much healthier & beautiful hair compared to the dull and drying appearance that comes out of a box.

Change Up Your Winter Look With Spring Highlights!

Change Up Your Winter Look With Spring Highlights!

Let’s face it – the snow may be melting but still have to deal with winter for the next few weeks. While there’s still some cold weather fun to be had, there’s also a deep longing for spring cleaning and change. Fortunately, there’s an easy pick-me-up waiting at your Boise hair salon – a new haircolor!

While you can certainly choose a new all-over hair color, you may just be wanting something slight. With spring around the corner, why not try out some popular highlighting techniques? Highlights provide a much subtle look compared to the shock of an all-over hair color. Not only that but they help push you past your hair color comfort zone without taking a no-return leap. Plus they add dimension and movement to your Boise hair salon style without resorting to drastic haircuts and shaping.

One of our favorite Boise hair salon techniques is ombré. The word is French for “shading” and it’s been popular for quite some time now. While traditional ombré highlights go from darker roots to lighter tips providing you with sun-kissed color, the opposite effect is just as popular. Lighter roots and darker tips can really work to highlight and brighten your face with a natural halo effect.

Other traditional highlighting and lowlighting techniques are also becoming multidimensional. Rather than sticking to just a single highlight tone, Boise hair salon stylists are using a range of colors to strategically add movement and texture. The best part? Multidimensional tones can be as subtle or daring as you like! You can either opt to stay within a specific color spectrum or push past your comfort zone to include any color of the rainbow. Plus, your Boise hair salon stylist will apply these colors in precise locations to enhance natural features you most want to emphasize.

Contact unDONE Salon

Finding a way to brighten up your winter look while preparing for spring is easy when you work with an experienced Boise hair salon stylist. At unDONE Salon, we want to provide you with a professional haircolor that lasts, leaving you with healthy, beautiful hair. Our Boise hair salon stylists will help walk you through the process while helping you decide which haircolor trend will look best on you. To book your next haircolor appointment, call us at (208) 287-2010 today!

 

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Rescuing Dry, Damaged Hair

Boise Hair Salon Tips For Rescuing Dry, Damaged Hair

Whether you have dry, dull or frizzy hair that’s littered with split ends, there is no quick fix for damaged hair. However, there are a variety of steps you can take to quickly improve its appearance while helping it regain its healthy luster.

Check out the following Boise hair salon tips for rescuing dry, damaged hair:

Be Gentle
You may not realize it, but the simple act of brushing, drying and putting your hair into a ponytail can damage your hair. In order to maintain healthy locks, it’s important to be gentle. Brush your hair gently to avoid breakage or pulling out multiple strands. After washing, you should also make sure to avoid wrapping your hair in heavy towels. When it comes to styling,  instead of pulling your hair into a tight ponytail, try putting it in a loose braid to keep your hair healthy and happy.

Protect Your Hair From the Sun
Hair that is regularly exposed to the sun can become damaged. Harmful UVA and UVB rays can damage the cuticle, causing hair to break, split, or thin. UV light can also damage color-treated hair by causing the dye molecules to oxidize. This can make your haircolor fade or turn brassy.

At unDONE, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend using a high SPF conditioner to help protect your strands against dangerous, harmful UV rays. Hats and scarves are also recommended to keep your hair under wraps when you’re out and about.

Trim Regularly
If your hair is thin and brittle, cutting it may seem like the last thing you want to do. However, avoiding regular trims can actually keep your hair from growing out any longer. Blow drying, curling, and coloring can also damage your hair, causing unwanted split ends. Left untreated, split ends will move up the hair shaft, causing it to break. At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend getting your hair trimmed every 2-3 months to keep it healthy and free of split ends.

Wash Less & Condition More
While we all love fresh, clean smelling hair, over-washing can decrease its health and vitality. Hair requires it’s own natural oils to stay healthy. Washing it multiple times per week will strip your hair of its own essential oils. At unDONE Salon, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend washing your hair 2-3 times a week in warm or cool water. When you do wash, it’s important to select sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners that are formulated for damaged hair. It’s also equally important to condition your hair each time you wash to add a protective, moisturizing layer to help repair the cuticle.

Minimize Heat Styling and Damaging Products
Heat from a blow dryer or other styling tools can damage hair and increase frizz and split ends. While styling your hair in its natural state isn’t always possible, other hair styling products can help. Gels, mousse and even hair rollers can help you style your hair without the damaging effects of heat. However, if you must use a heat source, our Boise hair salon stylists recommend using it on its lowest heat setting.

Color Your Hair Wisely
Haircolor can be a great way to eliminate gray hair and provide yourself with a new look. However, no one wants to damage their hair in the process. That’s why it’s important to talk with your Boise hair salon stylist before attempting a DIY haircolor.  They will take into account your hair history, type, and color application to help you achieve the best looking results while avoiding unwanted damage. Keep in mind that unlike the box dye you find at the grocery store, the salon-grade ingredients they use will leave your hair soft, shiny and healthy.
