Fall Favorites at Music To My Hair Salon


Fall Favorites at Music To My Hair1. BEANIES

You quickly glance in the mirror before running out the door and see your roots really need to be touched up.

Not only will a warm beanie help keep your roots on the DL until your next touch up, but it can also make for an interesting addition to your outfit!


The Limited Edition Rouge Brule Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow by Chanel is a gorgeous, semi-matte, dark burgundy shadow with warm-brown undertones.

The recent orange eyeshadow trend (when done right) is one of our favorite makeup looks for the season. Be a little daring and try this look out for yourself!


I highly doubt we’re the only ones absolutely obsessed with Rihanna’s new dreadlocks.

We think everything from the length & thickness, to how she styles them are perfect and flawlessly fitting for fall.


Orange Owl Lip Balm is a life saver for winter-time chapped lips.

If you’re anything like me, then your lips & skin are already longing for the NY summer humidity & could probably use a little TLC right now.

Enter, the Cinnamon & Spice Lip Balm, which includes ultra-moisturizing ingredients like Organic Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, & Vitamin E Oil and has the most pleasant scent for fall.

The best part? Not only is this heavenly lip balm cruelty free & organic, but we actually carry this product in the salon!

*The lip balms come in 4 other scents (Citrus Splash, Minty Fresh, Zesty Splendour, & Simple Naked – Unscented) and would make excellent stocking stuffers!


By now you may know that the Davines Oil Non Oil is a holy grail product for the stylists at MTMH.

Not only does this product contain a synergy of high-quality ingredients with incredible moisturizing power, but the non oil also gives your hair some structure and provides anti-frizz & anti-gravity action!

Ask your hair artist to show you how to use this during your next appointment at Music To My Hair!

4 Things Your Hair Stylist Needs To Know About You!



power-suits-for-women-street-style-looks-11. WHAT TYPE OF JOB DO YOU HAVE? // WHAT IS YOUR WARDROBE LIKE?

Spending 5-6 days a week in a suit might warrant a haircut with more distinct feminine features to contrast well with the masculine details of your work wardrobe.

On the other end of the spectrum, 13cc75e3e9374941f570bc963169eef9someone who adores bohemian style probably won’t want a cut that’s too spiky, blunt, or angular.

The key to a happy client is all about communicating to find something that flatters your features & lifestyle!

As most of us know, frequent heat styling can cause a great deal of damage to your hair.

It’s very important for your stylist to know exactly how often you apply heat to your hair.

This way, you can both come up with a suitable hair care routine to combat the harmful & drying effects of heat styling tools.

Your stylist may also suggest a shorter time span between trims to prevent split end buildup.

Music To My Hair has an incredible list of hair treatments to restore damaged hair, including a Keratin & Brazilian Blowout treatment. Learn more here!



According to Paul Labrecque, celebrity hair stylist and owner of Paul Labrecque Salons in NYC & Philadelphia, frequent washers may benefit from a dry cut.

Opting for a dry cut allows the stylist to accurately tailor a custom style to your natural texture. This would be especially ideal those with very curl, wavy, or fine hair.

Knowing how often you’re rinsing, also gives your stylist the opportunity to make sure you’re using the best shampoo & conditioner for your hair type, as well as the leave-in styling products we should be recommending to you.

Some clients are great about making a standing six week appointment for regular trims & hair health maintenance. Others, not so much.

Are you the type to leave the salon and forget about your hair until one day, two months later, you look in the mirror and realize with horror that you’re in desperate need of a cut? (Don’t worry, I might also be guilty from time to time!)

Regardless of your answer, it’s important to know how often you cut your hair & if maintaining length or growing out your hair is the end goal.


If length is the objective, but you’re not visiting the salon regularly for trims, you may actually be hindering yourself.

By the time you do come in, you may very well have to cut off more length just to get rid of the frayed ends & jagged layers.

It’s always best to be diligent about scheduling your future haircuts before you leave the salon.

We know you’re busy & that it’s hard to plan in advance, but scheduling early will give you that extra reminder that it’s time for a cut! Even if you have to reschedule, we’ll forgive you!

Top 4 Favorite Halloween Costumes of 2016


Jenna Dewan Tatum Halloween Costume4. JENNA DEWAN TATUM

Jenna dressed as an adorable unicorn for the Casamigos Halloween Party (held October 28) &  also attended Kate Hudson’s party that evening.

Not only was Jenna’s costume whimsically beautiful, but the makeup & hair pretty much made the entire look.



We thought Khloe looked incredible in her Storm costume.

Her and boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, celebrated Halloween over the weekend, dressed in matching Marvel Comics-inspired outfits.

We are in love with her icy white hair and glowing eyes!

Of course we have to mention the Queen Of Halloween 2016, Kylie Jenner.

Our favorite look from this weekend was the one she wore to her own “Dead Dinner” Halloween party.

Both her and Tyga dressed as gorgeous, high-fashion versions of eerie skeletons.

Her makeup looked flawless, as always, while her hair was slicked back into a sleek & edgy, but loose fashion.



Our number pick one was decided on, that is, until we saw Katy Perry’s costume this Halloween.

The epic transformation to becoming the presidential democratic candidate took weeks of preparation. Tony Gardner (makeup and special effects artist) designed, sculpted, and molded each individual prosthetic to create Hillary Clinton’s face over the course of three weeks.

Regardless of what your political views may be, you have to admit – this is hilarious & brilliant!

Top Men's Haircuts For 2016-2017


Mens Hair Fringe Haircut

If the men in your life are anything like ours, then you know that they’re often in desperate need of a hair cut, but simply don’t know what to get.

Sure, these are male models – but why can’t your man look just as polished as they do?

Well, we’re here to tell you that they can & will with the help of Music To My Hair and our team of super-star hair artists.

We’re breaking down our favorite mens hair cuts as of late.

Plus, to make it easy, he can just show the photo of the cut he likes best to his hair stylist. Voila! Easy.


This hair cut really is so customizable.

Whether you prefer your hair to have some rugged volume, crazy texture, or look clean cut & straight – you can make it work with the angular fringe cut.

Not only does this hair style create interesting lines and dimension, but it also accentuates bone structure.

Hard Part And Pompadour Mens HairTHE PART & POMPADOUR BLEND

The hard side part & the pompadour are two hair styles that have become pretty popular over the last few years.

Our thoughts: Why not mix the two?

The best part is that the majority of this look is in the styling.

So let’s say you’re not in the mood to fuss with styling. Simply sweep your hair to the side and add a little product for hold or let it fall tousled onto your forehead.

The trick is, regardless of how you decide to wear your hair, the side part is just enough to make it look like you put some effort in (even if you didn’t!)

Music To My Hair Mens HaircutsSOME CAESAR ON THE SIDE, PLEASE!

Maybe you never want to worry about styling your hair? Then this next look might be right for you.

Let us clue you in on a little secret… as long as you have a quality cut, your hair can look pretty perfect with little to no maintenance (especially for those of you who opt for a shorter style!)

We’re feeling this faded style lately. Leaving just enough at the top gives the look a quintessentially roman feel. Thus effectively leaving the subtle impression that you’re an all-powerful warrior on everyone around you.

Who wouldn’t want that?

Long Curly Hair Men CutLONG & UNRULY

Last, but certainly not least, those of you with curly hair probably have some difficulty picking a style that is simultaneously edgy and suitable for your hair texture.

Try going with something a little longer at the top with a clean, but slight taper towards your ears & neck.

Not only does this cut look incredible on curly/wavy hair, but it’s also pretty easy to maintain at home!
