Blowout BUZZ

hair-and-brush

Salon blow dryers are buzzing these days! So what is it about the blowout look that has women trading their own brushes and hair dryers for a seat in the salon? The blowout mimics the same smoothness and shine, but in lieu of 100 brush strokes, a professional stylist uses large round brushes to pull styling products and the scalp’s natural oils through to the ends of the hair.

While the main look desired is smooth and straight, other styles can also be achieved. La Dolce Salon stylists offer various blowout looks from; silky smooth, beachy waves to glamorous loose curls which can be achieved with a blow dryer and a brush.

The key to a perfect blowout is properly sealing the cuticle using heat and the angle of air from the blow dryer. Getting the hair wet is the only thing that should change the look, which is why a blowout will last a few days at a time even after sleeping on it. Longer hairstyles and women’s increasingly busy schedules are among the factors fueling the blowout movement.

With time, practice and the right tools women can accomplish a similar result at home. Some consider a salon blowout a luxury while others consider it an essential. Our stylists are able to provide you with a tutorial while you’re getting your next blowout done. Yet, many Dolce clients choose not to blow out their own hair because of the time and the muscle strength required to get the job done. Women are busy, so let us do the work!

La Dolce staff members pride themselves with being experts at creating bridal hair and makeup. It’s not uncommon for our talented staff to accommodate 2-3 larger wedding parties every Saturday from May through October. As the wedding season is quickly approaching us, we can’t help but think about the latest bridal trends of the season. This seasons brides are going retro in a big way. You will be seeing a modern twist reminiscent of the late 1920 – 1950′s. Complete with a resurgence of finger waves and pin curls.

There will be less of the traditional longer veils and more of the birdcage, pill box and flapper style veils which cover part of the brides face with more of a netting versus tulle. Whimsical looks are on the horizon with feathers and more fun, flirty accessories. We recently were involved in a photo shoot with a feathered shrug and feathered hair combs which create a lighter and romantic feel. Beautiful decorative sashes for the waist and stunning bejeweled hair accessories are accented on many brides this spring and summer. Many of our brides are going for a more of an unconstructed ‘down-do’ look instead of the more classic bridal up-do. La Dolce is aware off all bridal trends and can achieve your desired look. We encourage you to select the style you want and feel most comfortable wearing. Trends do come and go, so select the style that best enhances yourself and your personality. We can make your hair and makeup look amazing with an up-do, down-do, anything Dolce can do!
