Occasional Coiffures

Lately is that time of year when I use cockamamie amounts of hairspray and bobby pins. There is a tendency of requests for  loose buns at the nape with some braiding. Peruse a few of my creations below:

I love playing with hair. :)

Pantone Color Trends-We've Got 'Em!

In the Wilson's boutique, we have everything from jewelry to handbags. Today I am featuring just a few of the many summer and fall scarves.

Pantone, the printing ink company is big in the fashion world. They have rightfully predicted the fashion color trends for Fall 2011. I browsed through our assortment and came pretty close to the prediction.
Color above are more muted like the picture below. My camera doesn't do it justice.

We've got plenty more here at WoW! Next week I will do a post on hair accessories for Autumn. Yay!

Before and After: L'Oreal Absolut Repair Cellular

Absolut Repair + Lactic Acid
In the hair world, we know that lactic acid calms the hair and scalp. Take my mannequin for instance:
Mannequins have the worst hair-which I needed for this exercise. The hair is abused, exposed to extreme conditions, and is the victim of experimental color. First, I shampood her hair with Absolute Repair Cleansing Balm:"The formula with Lactic Acid gently cleanses damaged hair and leaves hair feeling stronger, more supple and looking shiny". After shampooing and then conditioning with the Absolute Repair Conditioner, I towel dried the hair and sprayed Absolute Repair Blow Dry Spray.

After blowdrying, my mannequin looked better than ever. I have to say, it gave her shiny smooth locks.

Now at WoW: Brushes That Work For You

Creative Tools Triangular Brush
These brushes are my favorite because they help you smooth and lift the hair without creating too much roundness or "curl". If you have hair that just won't obey, pick up a triangular brush and see how it works for you. I like to pull the hair with the flat side and spin it round just as I would with a round brush. The results are obviously different. W.O.W. has two kinds of bristles in three varying sizes. Find the one for you and get to it!

How I Keep My Hair From Fading

L'Oreal Proffessionnel Colorist Collection
If you have ever had your hair colored only to watch it fade a week later, you know the importance of a good color shampoo and conditioner. Pictured here is the key to my anti-fade success: Orange Marigold Shampoo and Mahogany conditioner. They both contain pigment AND they clean and moisturize! What more could you want between color?!
I am LOVING being red. Its great that I can keep it from fading!!

Before and After: Brittney (me)

Blonde to Red
I am going to start posting Before/After photos of choice work from WoW. For a while I have been wanting to be a redhead. When I was little my hair went from strawberry blonde to white-blonde to golden blonde then ash. Since I knew I could pull it off from having been it as a child, I went for it!


It totally works! and I love it. Thanks to Becki Reeves at Wilsons on Washington for doing all the hard work for me!

Now at WoW: Father's Day Edition

Stock Up. Gift Dad.
Wilson's on Washington and L'Oreal have come together to make sure dad isn't left out this June 19th. "Purchase any 2 full size L'Oreal products, receive a free Homme (men's) shampoo and 'Stuff Every Man Should Know' book."

Basically, buy 2 things, get 2 things. I recommend stocking up on hair spray since they are on sale!
