STEP 1.

Part hair down the middle and divide into two even, 1-inch sections — one on each side of the part, leaving out the front bangs

STEP 2.

Beginning on one side, pull back hair into a ponytail, using Joico Power Spray to help hold hair in place against the head. Secure first ponytail with a hair tie.

STEP 3.

Repeat on the other side.

STEP 4.

Take out a small piece of hair from the ponytail, and wrap it around the base to camouflage the hair tie. Apply Power Pray for extra holding power.

STEP 5.

Using a curling iron, add curls to each ponytail in 1 – 1 ½ inch sections.

STEP 6.

Line small clips (your choice of style) along the top of the head, starting behind the bangs and working your way back towards the ponytail.

STEP 7.

Tease each pony using a brush, combing backwards towards the head to give hair volume and lift.

STEP 8.

Gently brush through to soften and loosen up the waves.

STEP 9.

Finish with additional Power Spray as needed.

The Return of the of Ponytail

November 17, 2020

Ponytails are having a 90’s revival moment with the reappearance of “Twin Tails,” – a flirty and fun throwback style that’s easy to negotiate on your own. 

DID YOU KNOW? A PONYTAIL PRIMER

Blonde with styled hi ponytail

They’re perfect for “next day” hair

They’re way easier than a fresh blow-dry

The very first Barbie Doll put ponytails on the modern map

A mathematical model can predict the length and curvature of your individual ponytail (no, we’re not kidding)

Ponytails are a walk-out-the-door-fast hair fix

They’ll work for curly, natural, or straight hair

Ponies have been scientifically proven to sway side-to-side when you jog

THE INSPIRATION:

Frederic Aspiras created a classic updo to create softness around the face…a perfect 2019 take on Audrey Hepburn’s charming character in the film, Breakfast At Tiffany’s.

HOLLYWOOD FUN FACT:

Gaga was one of three people ever to wear the jaw-dropping Tiffany Diamond (128.54 carats) in its 142-year history. Not surprisingly, one of those times was by Audrey Hepburn in a 1961 Breakfast at Tiffany’s publicity photo.

GAGA’S GOWN DEETS:

Labeled “best dressed” in the press, the star’s gown – a black, sleeveless number by Alexander McQueen — was pure drama. Hepburn in its classic color, but totally Gaga in style.

TWITTER WENT INSANE:

As if the hair, the gown, the diamond, and the win weren’t enough fodder for the tabloids, Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s crazy-sizzling Shallow duet pretty much set the house (and the internet) on fire.

THE LOWDOWN ON THE UPDO:


1.Prep hair with Joico Defy Damage Protective Shampoo, followed by Joico Defy Damage Protective Masque for 5 minutes.

2.Towel dry.

3.Apply 2 -3 pumps of Joico Defy Damage Protective Shield and comb through using a wide-tooth comb.

4.Apply 1-2 pumps of Joico Blonde Life Brilliant Glow Brightening Oil to damp hair to create off-the-charts and softness. Comb through with a paddle brush.

5.Divide hair into small sections and blow dry using a bristle brush (Size 2) to dry hair away from face.

6.Using a curling iron and curl hair from mid-shaft to ends, creating a loose soft wave.

7.Allow the curls fully.

8.Next, spray hair at the crown and throughout curls with Joico Hair Shake, while loosening up the curls with a paddle brush.

9.Gather hair up into two ponytails (one large and one small). The larger ponytail is at the crown, and the small one at the back of head.

10.Back-comb and shape the ponies into wavy bun.

11.Define curls with a wand

12.Create volume at the top of head.

13.Spray Joico JoiShape Shaping Spray and Joico Power Spray Finishing Spray for extra hold.

New Fall Retro Chic

September 27, 2018

A clear trend across high fashion catwalks in the 2018/19 Winter collections,  models embraced their natural textures with loose, wavy locks, for a more refined bed-head look. At Stella McCartney, the minimalist approach even meant only two looks were used across all 36 models. This season, the girl-next-door is clearly the girl to know.

As well as a 1960’s hair revival, think the Jackie Kennedy look, whether it’s a big blow-out or a wide black leather headband, or even a punky asymmetric pixie cut, or neon hair colour, the rules for hair this season seem to be from earlier times  – retro looks are definitely hot!

In less than a month, it is Back to School.  We have some super Back to School Specials for you; with coupon.  The coupons are valid to September 30, 2018 so the whole family can get Back to School in Style!

 

A simple glam look

April 25, 2018

Emma Roberts’s dreamy vintage-glam hair looked picture-perfect with this year’s retro Oscars theme. 

To get Emma’s look:

  •  towel-dry hair, then apply a volumizing spray at the roots, and leave-in conditioner on the ends.
  • Next, it was time for a smooth, silky blowout
  • Once hair is dry, apply Joico Ironclad Thermal Protectant Spray to delicate strands, creating a safety net for the flat ironing that was to come.
  • With flat iron in hand, create polished bends throughout hair, holding the iron at a diagonal and creating alternating peaks and valleys.
  • Because sleek doesn’t mean flat, Joico’s Body Shake Spray is used …lending a plush, airy, bombshell finish

 

Jennifer Garner appeared in all her stunning brunette glory at the Oscars.  Her hair  had artfully woven, warm-bronze highlights placed  around her face. They were deliberate and subtle: just enough so her skin developed a rosy, youthful glow; not so much that it took away from the very luscious chestnut mane and less-is-more vibe. Color Therapy Luster Lock Treatment is the perfect deep- conditioner to give this look the vibrancy it needs to make those dimensional highlights continue to pop.

Happy Canada Day!

We’re closed on Saturday, July 1st for Canada Day
Wishing you a wonderful Canada Day weekend
Happy 150th Birthday Canada!

Happy 150th Birthday

Happy Birthday Canada

 

We love blondes. We’re actually kind of fanatical about those who proudly and unabashedly choose to lighten up. (And that’s one out of every three women, in case you’re wondering.) So we just knew we had to create a perfect line of products–shampoos, conditioners, treatments, and even a world-class lightener– exclusively for those who go gleamingly golden. You have to see it to believe it.
