Winter Hair Care For a Glamorous Holiday

Winter Hair Care For a Glamorous Holiday

There is always the sun, wind, cold, and wet weather to contend with in the winter months. This brings stress and damage to your hair.

The best hair care to protect your hair and scalp is keeping your hair covered. This will protect your hair. This protection does create a sweat issue that can irritate your scalp. This gentle laundry soap for your hats will help with the irritation. Changing from a wool hat assists with irritation of the scalp’s sensitive skin.

Hair Styling

Preventing drying of your hair and scalp is a challenge during winter. Hydration is key in the dry winter months. Keeping hydrated will prevent drying hair, skin (even the scalp). Maily O’Neil, the owner of Mai Salon, states, “Hairstyles that do not require any hot tools are:

  • Embracing your natural curl
  • For styling, use a larger comb to comb or with fingers, and damp set with bobby pins.

Limiting your use of drying hair styling products (hair dryer, flat or curling iron) can help with preventing damage to your hair.

Continue keeping your hair trimmed during the winter months to keep hair healthy looking. This keeps the dry and damaged ends from splitting.

Deep condition weekly and limiting hair washing will keep hair healthy and easier to manage. Using a shampoo specifically for the season or your hair type is key to success. We enjoy products from Maple Holistic. They have a fabulous winter shampoo and conditioner for your winter hair. O’Neil says, “using the right shampoo, conditioner and moisturizer product to enhance and set the curls naturally.” It is important to remember to not leave the house with your hair wet. This will risk breaking, further damage, brittle, and drying to your hair.

O’Neil recommends, “Controlling frizzy hair needs humidifying products which attract moisture to control frizz.” Invest in a humidifier to control this frizz. This will add moisture back to your office or home atmosphere. When running the heater it does dry the air. This will prevent frizzy hair often found in the winter months. It also keeps your skin moist and less dry feeling.

Keeping your hair healthy during the winter months will make you the talk of the town through the holidays, Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve. Send your winter hair selfies here using #4ChionStyle.

Malan Breton Style Fashion Week FW17 LA

Malan Breton, fashion designer, brings a story in three chapters for fall winter 2017. The chapters create a story that flows from New York Fashion Week, to London Fashion Week, and concludes in Los Angeles at Style Fashion Week.

The New York chapter is Everywhere at the End of Time. This chapter  takes us to the current times in the world now and brings about empowerment. The empowerment of women and those being  poorly treated. The entire show from the dancers, to the opening model, Nykhor Paul bring the story to life.

The runway included celebrities models: Kiera Chaplin (Charlie Chaplin’s granddaughter), Frankie Grande, Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin,  Dylan Grieco, Mason Grammer, and Janine Tugonon. Each is a part of the  weaving of the story about acceptance and hope.

London’s show at Freemasons Hall continues the collections’ story. This chapter is living in the moment of fear and darkness. Taking the color away from you. The loss of color a strong presence on the runway. The opening fabric for this chapter looks similar to a second skin. The music for the runway is Sleepwalk by Santo & Johnny.

Los Angeles story chapter, the Seven Deadly Sins. This runwaybrings the story back to hope, light, and empowerment with the presence of color. The Phoenix in the triplet chapter story.

The collections’ stories are inspired by the 1930s, the loss of hope and death. The stories draw from Charlie Chaplin‘s 1930 films including City Lights and Modern Times. The collections present the story with perfection in fabrics, treatments, performances, and colors.

The fabrics are Asian inspired. The fabrics are organzas, silk Charmeuse, and recycled piettes. The piettes are created  from recycled cans. Breton uses a company in Twain that cuts, colors, and treats the metal.

Breton says, “I do my bestwith my designs to protect the environment” This metallic dress moments and texture are extraordinary. Breton states, “the dress movement comes from the way I weighted and draped the dress. I am so grateful it turned out so well.”

The color in this chapter is green (earth and rebirth), gold (prosperity and richness), and deep blue (continuous flow of life). The floral prints bring a beauty and a new beginning to the final chapter of the story.

Breton’s chapters stay true to his aesthetics elegance. The men’s silhouettes are very on point. This collection Breton styled and designed himself. His stylist for several seasons, Montgomery Frazier The Image Guru, said, “we do not put anyone in anything that is ill-fitting. If it is ill-fitted they do not wear it. The textures and fabrics fit Breton’s catch line ‘wherever you go shine.’ The fabrics are rich, opulent, exquisite tailoring, and he is about the fashion. Being here with Breton is so glamorous at Style Fashion Week with the beautiful outdoor setting and jazz music.”

Breton develops his menswear after his own experience. He states, “when I was a ballet dancer in London and on Broadway every time I lifted my arm up when wearing a suit I would lose part of my sleeve. I knew I had to figure out how to cut a suit so I do not lose part of my sleeve. I trained at Turnbull And Asser, the suit makers for the Prince of Wales. He says, “I incorporate the English tradition I learned there with my development for the men’s suits.”

The fashion show stayed true to the designers’ aesthetic while completing the story started in New York. The beauty, tailoring, and signature detailing tell the story of hope, equality, and empowerment. Concluding with the image of renewing and shining wherever you are.
