EVERYTHiNG YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HEAT DAMAGE!

EVERYTHiNG YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT HEAT DAMAGE!

 

Everyone knows that heat damage happens with the repeated use of blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons. However, most don’t know that you can do some serious damage in one single pass of the flat iron or one single blow dry. THAT’S RiGHT!! Heat damage can happen fast and the only true way to 100% rid yourself of the havoc that was caused is a haircut. So let’s talk all the ways you can prevent heat damage from happening to you.

 

  1. GET REGULAR TRiMS! Hair that is porous already isn’t strong enough to handle any amount of heat you throw at it. So keeping up with regular trims will help keep your hair in its healthiest state. We recommend every 5-6 weeks even if it’s just a light dusting of those ends.
  2. USE HAiR CARE PRODUCTS THAT HEAL THE HAiR! One of our favorite lines and one we recommend to a majority of our guests is L’anza Healing Hair Care. They have some amazing rinse out and leave in reconstructors that infuse the hair with moisture and protein that is depleted during color services, from environmental stressors,  and from regular styling with heat tools.
  3. GET YOUR THERMAL PROTECTiON GAME ON! Always use a thermal protectant prior to applying any heat to the hair. L’anza stylers all have thermal protection up to 450 degrees. (but please, never have your heat tool up this high) They also have some amazing thermal protectants that actually decrease blow dry time! Who doesn’t want to save time on blow drying?!
  4. TURN THOSE HEAT TOOLS DOWN! Like we said earlier, DO NOT use your heat tools at 450 degrees. There is almost no need for that. It may seem faster but remember it is damaging your hair faster as well! Talk with your stylist about what temperature is right for your hair.
  5. INVEST iN QUALiTY HEAT TOOLS! We recommend using tools that have a temperature dial so you can control the amount of heat on your hair. Our favorite is Bio Ionic. The heat is distributed evenly throughout the tool allowing you to use a lower heat setting.

Training In Progress

 

 

‼️​TRAINING IN PROGRESS‼️​

Quiet!! Training: In Progress! Here at Mod Hair Color Salon & Beauty Store we believe education and training is vital to our success behind the chair. Not only is it what continues to make us a better stylist year after year, it is what can make or break a new stylist. That is why we are creating a training program here at the salon for stylists coming out of school. ?​

The goal behind the training program is to allow for an easier transition from school to salon. Think of it as a residency for Cosmetologists. We are expecting the finished training program to be anywhere from 6-12 months.

I have been working with two very talented young stylists to create this training program for the past 4 months. Together we are discovering what works and what doesn’t all the while training them to become the best! The future of our stylists is very important to Jody and I.

 I asked Mataya Clark what she liked best about the training program and she told me this, “In school you learn the basics of every cut, style, and color. This program allows you to learn more advanced techniques and fully prepare you for the unexpected. Being in a fast pace salon environment really opens your eyes to all the possibilities of becoming a successful stylist.” 

She is right. You just can’t learn it all in school. Salon owners and senior stylists have an  obligation to guide their team. We need to take part in creating greatness in our industry. It is our responsibility to teach the next generation. In doing so we can truly learn a great deal.

Sara Fisher was the first to start in this program. She says she loves being a part of the development of the program. “I am happy to be apart of this development because I’ll really be able to see how much it changes and grows for stylists who are a part of it in the future. To be able to eventually coach others will be extremely rewarding.”

We look forward to seeing how far they have grown once they have completed the training program. They have already gained so much. Sara and Mataya are currently behind the chair on Saturdays doing blow outs, formal styling, waxing, makeup and hair treatments. They currently are in the cutting portion of the training program and have a goal of cutting hair behind the chair in October. This would allow them to be behind the chair Wednesday nights and Saturdays.

To schedule a blow out with Sara and Mataya call 319-553-1080 or book online at www.modsalonbeautystore.com.
