Salon Styling

A stylist that knows the properties of the scalp and hair is better equipped to help you get your best look. A quality salon operates with this knowledge to ensure the integrity of your hair stay intact. There is no one way fits all! As the curly hair market evolves we must accept this fact. Schedule a consultation with your stylist to get the best advice on how to care for and style your hair. What accessories, methods and tools do you use to accomplish hair health and longevity.

Before & After Style – By Sheena

In the before and after image below mannequin hair gets a wash & blow dry style. I use Eufora’s Beautifying Serum and a bore bristle brush to smooth and shine the hair. I recommend Sheena’s Strengthening treatment Gel after heat use and texture bending to fortify strands and reduce the appearance damage .

Quick tip: blow-dry hair up to 90% to avoid static and fly aways. Allow hair to air dry 10% then set with a flexible hold hair spray to finish.

No Breakage – Texture Bending

My approach to hair is care first style after. Using heat and colour at times to manipulate the shape and colour. Enhance a natural look with heat or chemicals and still respect the limitations of your hair. I use hot tools on freshly washed clarified and partially air-dried  hair for three reasons.

  1. To stretch new growth
  2. To dry with equal moisture distribution root to ends
  3. To Blow-out Style

Use a chemical service for colour within three levels of your natural colour or texture to guarantee a safe and sustainable result. I use quality product and hot tools like the Dyson blow dryer and steam irons with ionic heat technology. Consider quality products with ingredients to reduce or enhance moisture and protect from heat damage depending on the style you wish to achieve.

Finger Coils

Above before and after. I used a finger-twist curl set to minimize volume and accentuate a spiral curl definition.

Quick tip: After setting finger-twist curls diffuse to dry and set. Once hair is dry you may separate individual twist curl to desired volume.
