You know that feeling you have when you leave the salon, hair freshly cut, styled, and colored? We call that a “good hair day.” Chances are, you’d like to keep that feeling going for as long as possible. Hence, the subject of upkeep comes into sharper focus. Looking good between salon visits depends on how much time and energy you can commit to the task. Please understand, we’re not judging. If you tend toward a low-key, low-maintenance approach to hair and beauty, that’s fine! However, you’ll need to consider your routine when you choose a new hairstyle or color.

 

Know Thyself

If you’re committed to visiting the salon every 4-6 weeks, then you can absolutely pursue platinum locks! But, if you know that you won’t be back for a few months, you’re better off sticking with a cut or a color technique that doesn’t require frequent trips for maintenance. For example: if you want to perk up your natural color, consider balayage. This natural-looking highlighting technique looks good even as hair grows out! Similarly, a short layered cut will require frequent trims to hold its shape and style, whereas a longer cut may allow you a little more leeway when it comes to looking good between salon visits.

 

Make Sure That Your Expectations are Realistic

Let’s say that you just adore the asymmetrical lob that Rihanna made famous. Can we give you the same cut? Probably. Will it look as great on you as it did on Rihanna? That’s a more difficult question to answer! There’s a good chance that it’ll work if your hair has the same texture and characteristics as Rihanna’s hair does, but it’s more likely that it’ll look a bit different on you than it does (or did) on her. The same goes for color. Pastels are super trendy right now, but they may not look the way you envision if your coloring is wrong for the look.

 

Skip the Drugstore Products

If you want professional results, you need to use professional products. They’re one of the reasons (along with a highly-trained stylist and colorist) that you leave the salon looking so amazing! Your stylist can steer you toward the right products for your hairstyle needs. For example, she might “prescribe” a styling paste for a piece-y layered short cut, or perhaps something that’ll keep a stick-straight blunt lob looking perfect. At Deseo Salon & BlowDry in Denver, we carry some of the best products available from names like Oribe, Kerastase, and Kevin Murphy.

These well-respected names in the beauty industry have proven that they deliver the results you’re looking for. Whether you need products for styling, volumizing, protecting your color, or nourishing chemically treated hair, these high-quality names will help you look salon-fresh every day.
