The Foundation Glam Project…

At Foundation Hair Studio our team of top-notch stylists are passionate about all things hair. Most importantly, we’re a passionate group of ladies committed to making each and every one of our guests feel like they’ve received the best service of their life. With that being said, we’ve decided to start The Foundation Glam Project. Think of it as “Extreme Home Makeover for Hair”.

The mission of the Foundation Glam Project is to reach out to disadvantaged women by relieving some of the financial burden associated with haircuts and color. The Foundation Glam Project will offer these women a complimentary haircut and/or hair color. All women are beautiful, but occasionally we all deserve to be pampered. If you know anyone that could use a helping hand, please don’t hesitate to email us at foundationhairstudio@gmail.com. We invite all of you to be a part of The Foundation Glam Project, where everyone leaves feeling fabulous.

*Please make sure to send an email with information about yourself or the person you are nominating for The Foundation Glam Project. We will be doing hair, color, makeup, and possibly taking pictures. We’re all very excited about the opportunity to help others feel beautiful.

What is Kenra’s Platinum Blow-Dry Spray?

I have the perfect product that is great for every hair type, Kenra’s Platinum Blow-Dry Spray. You get heat protection, detangling, smoothing, and softening in one product. Heat protectants provide thermal defense for your hair, while the oils soften, condition, strengthen, and protect.

Most importantly, silicone compounds in the spray help hair dry faster, thereby dramatically decreasing drying time. When you use less heat in styling your hair, it helps your hair stay healthy, limiting the breakage and splitting that excessive blow drying can cause.

This product is great for anyone who uses a blow dryer regularly. If you have thick hair that soaks up water when you wash, using Kenra’s Platinum Blow-Dry Spray can help you cut your drying time in half. If you have fine hair that is prone to fly aways and breakage, the argan and jojoba oils in the spray can help improve the condition of your hair and shortening drying time will help prevent further damage.

The blow dry spray is easy to use. Just spray onto wet hair, layer it with your other favorite styling products and blow dry. Stop by today and pick up Kenra’s Platinum Blow-Dry Spray!

Protect your hair while in the pool….

Excellent ways to protect your hair while in the pool……

Spending as much time as you can in water during these hot summer months can be tempting, but chlorine and salt can have damaging effects on your hair. To keep your hair in great shape this summer, check out these tips.

1. Wear a cap. While it isn’t super stylish, if you are in the pool for athletic purposes a cap is definitely key.

2. Wet your hair before swimming. Wetting your hair with tap water can be very beneficial prior to hopping into the pool. Wet hair soaks up fewer chemicals than dry hair. You can also add a leave in conditioner to your wet hair to create a greater barrier.

3. Secure your hair. Hair left loose can easily become tangled while swimming. To avoid breakage, tie up your hair in a pony tail or with bobby pins to ensure easier combing.

These are just a few basic tips on how to protect your hair while swimming. These days they should come in very handy.

Are you in need of a Deep Conditioner Treatment?

Summertime is officially here! I know that many of my clients love the summer. Even more so, they love going blonde in the summer. I know that sometimes going blonde, for some of us, causes a lot of dry and/or damaged hair. And then add to that, sun and salt water from our vacations and you end up with dull, dry looking hair. The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way. There is a way to have brighter, blonder hair for the summer without all of those gross ends. The answer is: Redken Chemistry system. Redken describes it as: “A customized treatment for whatever your hair needs – whether it’s moisture, color protection, strength, softness, control, or a combination of these benefits!” I’ve tried many a treatments in my day and this is the only one that works past your first wash. Whether your damage is coming from your blonde, your flat iron, or just too much time in the sun, Redken Chemistry system will work for you. And here’s the even better news… It’s not too hard on the wallet or your time. This process only takes about 10 minutes at the shampoo bowl and only will only cost you $10! Call your stylist at Foundation and book your treatment today!

Gorgeous Blow-out, at home!

A gorgeous blow-out, at home!

A great salon blow-out can add a little something extra to your hair, which seems impossible to replicate at home. But impossible it is not! even though blow dries advertise themselves to be casual and easy-to-achieve, they do require a few steps to give you that effortless look. But, with the right products (that you should always keep close by!) and just a few steps, you’ll be blow-drying like a pro in no time!

1. First, you will need to towel dry your hair and apply a blow-dry/volume enhancing cream. Some of the most popular ones include Pureology’s Root Lift and Redken’s Velvet Gelatine 07.
2. Blow dry the hair 75-80% dry before sectioning the hair and using a round brush. With the round brush, blow-dry away from the roots to create volume. Start with the top and front of the hair-you don’t want to get to tired by the time you get to the most important parts!
3. Make sure you get the hair COMPLETELY dry! Once the hair is dry, part your hair where you normally where it. Apply a very small amount of Redken’s All Soft Argan Oil-6 to the ends of the hair to give it that smooth finish.
4. Finally, spray hairspray on a paddle hairbrush and gently comb away from the parting in the direction of the hair. This will settle any visible flyway strands. For this effortless, carefree look, don’t spray hairspray directly onto the hair.

And there you have it! A professional blow-dry at home! With just a little practice and patience, you too can have an effortless look that can last for days!

All About Hair Extensions

Extensions extensions extensions!!! Pretty much everyone in Hollywood has had them, are wearing them now, or at least are using them for special events. So, let’s talk about them! There are many different brands, colors and lengths. I know most people have many questions about bonding types, how much damage they cause, how much they cost, and how long they stay in. These are the things I always talk about in consultations. A consultation is the first step for ALL extension clients.

I have always loved long, thick hair. So, 5 years ago I attended classes with SO.CAP.USA and have been doing extensions ever since. Here is a little bit of information on SO.CAP.USA from their website: “They use only the best hand selected, 100% European-type human hair that is pre-bonded with 100% Keratin Tips to ensure a healthy, strong and long-lasting bond. SHE by SO.CAP. USA Hair Extensions also offers the largest selection of hair types and haircolor for hairstylists to select from. More than 90 haircolor shades are currently available in three different textures: straight, medium wave and curly.”

Although having longer hair is what extensions are used for the most, they are also used for other things. If you have thin hair, extensions are great for thickening it up a bit and giving you a little more body and texture. They are also my first suggestion for funky, fun colors. Having a panel of fun, bright color in your hair always seems like a great idea… until a week later when your awesome, bright color has faded and now just looks weird. Extension don’t fade!!! At all!! Call and make your consultation appointment today

Is Ombre Hair Color Right For You?

A question I commonly hear from clients is “Do you think I can pull of the faded color style that (INSERT CELEBRITY HERE) has with my short hair?”. The answer is absolutely, and the hair style you all are referring to is “Ombre”. The hair world borrowed the term ‘Ombre’ from the french word meaning shaded or shading. Typically ombre hair color is darker at the roots all the way through the mid-shaft then gradually gets lighter at the ends. This look is ideal for clients looking for a low-maintenance everyday style.

Miley Cyrus has gone from long to short hair with ombre hair color and it looks amazing. It looks just as good with short hair as it did with long hair. So for all of you thinking about adopting the ombre hair style, take a look below. The girls of Foundation Hair Studio have tons of experienced with this technique and would be more than happy to turn your hair style requests into a reality.
