washingtonFAMILY.com November 2014 65 It is makeup for hair --- you can have red, coral, hot pink, purple or gold streaks for the weekend and wash them out in time for work on Monday! WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND FOR MOMS ON-THE-GO? Redken's Pillow Proof Express Primer reduces blow dry time by up to 50 percent and protects against heat up to 450 degrees. It also helps prevent breakage by repairing hair from the inside out. Pillow Proof Two Day Extender is an oil-absorbing dry shampoo that will extend the life of your style. It's great for when you don't have time to shampoo since it absorbs oil and freshens hair. HOW CAN MOMS KEEP THEIR HAIR MORE YOUTHFUL? No mater what your style or color, maintenance is key. Keeping your cut maintained, your color fresh and shiny, and your hair healthy and moisturized is important for keeping your look youthful. If you don't think you will have time to maintain a precision cut and color, ask for something more low-maintenance. Your stylist should be able to suggest styles that can grow out more gracefully, and options such as subtle highlights or semi-permanent color tend to require less upkeep. An in-salon gloss treatment adds glossy shine, and is available in both clear and color-enhancing shades. Check in with your stylist regularly to make sure that you are not geting into a rut — small tweaks to a style can ofer a fresh look. If you really feel that your stylist isn't keeping up on current techniques, trends and products, it may be time to look for a new stylist. ANY OTHER TIPS/SUGGESTIONS YOU THINK TRENDY MOMS SHOULD KNOW? If you are thinking of changing your style or color, fnd pictures. Both photos of what you like and what you don't like are very helpful to stylists. If you wish to drastically change your look, please keep in mind that it is not always a quick process, or one that can be done at home. Some things are best left to professionals!

Short hair is extremely on-trend this season. A "grown out" pixie or short bob is this season’s hotest style. Jennifer Lawrence, Michelle Williams and many other actresses and models are wearing this look beautifully. Alternatively, the "lob" (long bob) is fast becoming a classic, and is extremely wearable and fatering to most women. It works with all textures, types and colors of hair, and can be modifed to fater all face shapes. A popular length is just to the collarbone, with lightly textured ends. As far as color trends go, richer, brighter shades are very popular right now --- deep coppers, caramels and mocha browns. Clients are also requesting pops of bright colors like purple, candy apple red and hot pink. And ombre is here to stay! It is softer and more delicate than in seasons past, but is still a beautiful way for longer hair to look fresh, plus clients love that it's low-maintenance. WITH THE UPCOMING COLDER MONTHS, DO YOU HAVE ANY TIPS FOR KEEPING HAIR LOOKING ITS BEST? Regular conditioning treatments are a must. Ask your stylist about treatments to specifcally add moisture and reduce britleness. Several products are available, such as hot oils and deep conditioners (sometimes called hair masks) that add strength and moisture. Switching to a more moisturizing shampoo and conditioner for the colder months also helps. A product that would make your hair fat during the more humid summer months can keep static away and help retain moisture during dryer, cooler months. Washing less often is also benefcial for dry hair. No mater how moisturizing the shampoo, washing is drying to the hair. WHAT CURRENT "HOT" HAIR PRODUCTS DO YOU RECOMMEND? Spray texturizers such as Wax Blast 10 and Blown Away 05 are super hot right now. Whether you have short or long hair, adding texture makes a style look modern. Color Rebel is a brand new product that adds bright color to light or dark hair and lasts about two shampoos.
