Fall.  It’s the season of the most spectacular color makeover in the world of nature.  It’s also the perfect season for a hair makeover.  After reveling all summer in the sun and sand, your hair can be crying out for a little love and attention, and a “color-cut-and-conditioning” makeover can be exactly what you need to look stunning for autumn and the upcoming holidays.   With just the right style and hair care products your tresses can soon be healthy, shiny, and ready to flaunt as the leaves begin to fall.

 

TIPS FOR GORGEOUS FALL HAIR


STEP ONE:  START WITH A PROFESSIONAL CUT OR TRIM TO REMOVE DAMAGED ENDS
The end of the summer is an excellent time to schedule a trim or haircut.   After being exposed to chlorine, extreme heat, salt water, UV rays, and other chemicals, the ends of your hair can be damaged, dry, and fragmented.  This can make daily styling a challenge to say the least.  Left unchecked, the damage can travel up hair strands, causing greater issues.   Give your hair a fresh start with a  quick trim to remove dry, split ends.  You’ll be amazed at how much more manageable your hair feels after snipping away those damaged edges.

STEP TWO:  NOURISH & CONDITION
After removing damaged ends, the next step in your hair makeover is to nourish and repair every strand with an intensive conditioning treatment.   Deep conditioning helps to replenish your locks with moisture, shine, and nutrition.  At iLLustria, we have several in-salon treatments that can be customized to target exactly what your hair needs.   Our L’Oreal Powerdose, Fiberceutic, or Mythic Oil treatments all offer a powerful dose of healing and hydration and are the perfect therapy for sun-baked & heat-fried hair.   We also have top of the line keratin smoothing treatments which are an excellent option for frizzy, damaged hair that needs an infusion of keratin-rich super conditioning.

STEP THREE:  REFRESH YOUR COLOR
If you’ve been thinking about getting a color glaze, balayage highlights, ombre tones, or a rich all over vibrant hair color, Fall is the perfect season to do it!  Unlike summer, where sun and chlorine can give your color a short shelf life, fall involves much less exposure to sun and chemicals that can cause your hair color to fade.   You can enjoy many autumn weeks of long-lasting gorgeous hues with your hair becoming a stunning fashion accessory!
If you’re not sure which color is right for you, you can “try on” a shade by opting for a color glaze before you take the plunge into a more permanent color option.   No matter what color service you choose, you’re in fabulous hands at iLLustria.  We’re known as Milwaukee’s color experts, and our exceptional line of L’Oreal products and ammonia-free options will give your hair the perfect customized hue with luminous shine and softness.   And, you’ll also find a complete collection of color enhancing, sulfate free shampoos, conditioners, and treatments that will nourish and protect your hair against color fade, allowing you to get even more mileage from your new look.  

STEP FOUR:  CHOOSE THE RIGHT PRODUCTS FOR YOUR HAIR TYPE & TEXTURE

Dry and thinning?  Coarse and oily?  Color-treated?  Knowing the personality of your hair is the key when choosing the appropriate products for taking care of it.  For thin, fragile hair, keeping a healthy level of moisture is of extreme importance to maintaining the healthiest hair for fall and for keeping your hair and scalp from becoming dry as winter approaches.   This is true for curly hair as well, as curls need continual hydration to stay soft and frizz-free.   For those of you who blow dry or flat iron your hair daily, a good heat protecting serum or spray is a must, while color-treated hair needs gentle sulfate-free cleansing and conditioning in order to protect against color fade.     
Choosing the right products can make a world of difference in how your hair responds.  At your next appointment, we’ll be happy to help you choose the best cleansing, conditioning, and styling options for your particular hair type and daily styling needs.   Simply ask one of our stylists for recommendations.
