Has winter left you feeling…dry?

We have one month until the ice thaws, and spring blooms, and with spring we leave behind the cold, bitter dryness that winter brings us. You may be feeling like your hair and skin is feeling the effects of winter! Well don’t worry we have just the remedy for you!  

Treat Yourself

Treat your hair to some tender loving care by lathering up with ylang ylang.  A lush, super-sensual aroma found in the Damage Remedy family. Can a damaged hair treatment really smell beautiful? You bet it can. Damage Remedy Daily Hair Repair instantly repairs damaged hair and protects it from thermal damage up to 450 degrees. Daily care should be a luxurious experience, and it is thanks to a blend of certified organic bergamot, ylang-ylang and mandarin.

  • Instantly repairs and protects from heat styling.
  • 97% naturally derived* leave-in treatment instantly repairs the integrity of hair’s surface.
  •  Helps protect the hair against breakage and thermal damage up to 450°.
  • Formulated with quinoa protein, this leave-in treatment helps give you stronger, longer hair**.

Here’s how to step up your winter skin game so you step into springtime with a fresh, dewy complexion.

  1. Amp up the moisture during the day without getting greasy! Adding a layer of moisturizer for extra protection before applying a SPF will ensure that your skin is getting the moisture it needs. 

    MTMH RECOMMENDS: VITAL C hydrating intense moisturizer

  2. Lock in that moisture before you go to bed, by applying a thicker, richer cream. Your skin performs most of its reparative work as you sleep, this ensures your skin gets all the nutrients and hydration it possibly can. 

    MTMH RECOMMENDS: VITAL C hydrating repair crème

  3. After moisturizing add a layer of oil on spots prone to dehydration , pat on a couple of drops of facial oil to supercharge moisture in the area while creating an extra-protective barrier against water loss. 

    MTMH RECOMMENDS: VITAL C hydrating facial oil

  4. Apply a moisturizer containing broad-spectrum sunscreen. The UV rays penetrate clouds and windows no matter what the weather is, which means your skin is susceptible to the effects of aging any day of the year. 

    MTMH RECOMMENDS: PREVENTION+ daily hydrating moisturizer SPF 30+

  5. Treat your face with a hydrating sheet mask every week. When in doubt or dryness, always rely on a mask! A sheet mask delivers hydration deeply into the skin by allowing the ingredients to penetrate in high concentration.

You are now on your way to Hydrated, Nourished & Revitalized Hair & Skin!

MUSIC TO MY HAIR – EDUCATION/ft. MIRZA BATANOVIC

Mirza Batanovic Hair Class Music To My Hair Salon

Monday, Nov. 28th – 

As a salon that takes pride in our open education opportunities, we were thrilled to be able to host this incredible class for the talented stylists of the Capital Region.talk

In his demonstration, Mirza Batanovic, Eufora Educator & Global Artistic Team Member, emphasized precision and contemporary cuts.

His teachings gave room for personal versatility in order to be able to customize the cut for a wide age range of clientele. Meaning being able to tailor the cut to your specific desires!

Mirza showed us how to recreate & modernize the “shag” haircut (which is currently making it’s way back into our hearts) with a proficient system to reduce cutting time while also delivering mastery level results.

ABOUT MIRZA

Mirza was named one of the 7 best up and coming U.S. hairstylists in 2014 by Estetica Magazine.

He is also a NAHA Salon Team 2016 winner and can be found working regularly at Ammon Carver Studio in New York City.

start-of-classHe is passionate about education and specializes in bridal hair, editorial work, and fashion shows (including NYFW), TV segments (San Diego/Denver), red carpet events (LA), hair for celebrities and high profile clients for TV interviews, award shows (Golden Globes/Oscars/Kid’s Choice Awards, VMA’s) and various press events.

THE CLASS

We noticed right away how easy Mirza is to connect with and his teaching style, which is straightforward and interactive, was painless to follow along with.

STEP 1.

We began the class with a demonstration of a proper hair wash, where Mirza discussed in depth the Eufora products & their benefits.

STEP 2.

Next, Mirza brought his model and fellow Eufora Educator onto the stage to demonstrate the shag cut.

He revealed the lines and angles of the modern haircut in great detail and took the time to make sure everyone was able to see exactly what he was doing at all times.

(Many who attended the class even filmed his instructions to refer back to for afterwards!)

The technique Mirza opted for allows for very little dry cutting. This is wonderful as it gives your stylist a chance to work with your natural texture, which in turn gives you a better cut.

STEP 3.

Once Mirza’s demonstration was over, all of the stylists were able to apply these advanced cutting techniques onto their mannequin. Plus, as an added bonus the stylists were able to get plenty of one on one time with the four Eufora educators who were in attendance.

The class finished with a final review of all the mannequin cuts and a brief demonstration of a professional curling technique that prevents the damage that comes from over using hot styling tools on our model and salon manager, Michelle.

OVERVIEW

The class was an incredible opportunity to work with a fantastic company (Eufora) and an extremely talented up and coming hair artist (Mirza Batanovic).

Thank you to all those who attended and to those who made this class possible!
