Does Beyonce ever have bad hair?

We can’t seem to find a moment in time when Beyonce has given us bad hair… and this… this TIME Magazine cover doesn’t fall short.

Simple and subtle, however she has been named one of the most influential people, and well, her hair holds the same reputation. Time and time again, ladies ask for her flawless ombre and perfected curls.

We see her as an icon and her hair stylist is certainly keeping up. Well done Beyonce, well done!

Short to Long in the matter of an hour!

Hotheads Extensions, the revolutionized hair extension. Everyone wants the long luxurious locks similar to that of Kim Kardashian, Jessica Simpson, Beyonce and so many others. It’s time to make it a reality. Through months of research and learning different lines of hair extensions, Z Studio has proclaimed their support and excitement to start offering Hotheads Hair Extensions in the salon!

One of the biggest concerns one may have is whether or not the additional hair is going to look like their natural hair. With the unique design and method of installation, they are placed in the hair in such a way that they flow seamlessly from natural hair to additional hair.

Aiding in the flawless transition from natural hair to additional hair is Hotheads’s array of color options. With extensions coming in all lengths, colors and textures, there is always a right fit. That being another reason for Z Studio’s decision to adopt Hotheads’s way of doing extensions.

Just as you redo your color or get your hair trimmed, your Hotheads Extensions are maintained and “touched up” in the same way. Just as we schedule out hair appointments or nail appointments, these are no different. Done the same day as your typical hair appointment, your stylist adjusts the location of the extension and moves them up to account for the natural hair growth.

Through Z Studio’s research on hair extensions, the choice not only became easier after seeing the benefits of Hothead’s methods being more gentle on the natural hair and the endless number of options, but in the dramatic cost difference in comparison to other extension methods. The cost, while varying with each client as the consultation depicts a customized plan for your extensions, is significantly less than other permanent hair extensions in the market.

Ball cap making you go bald?

It’s been rumored that wearing a ball cap will make you go bald. This is a legitimate concern and we want to help clarify…

Hair thinning or balding is a hereditary issue. Taking a look through your family history, you may start finding a trend. Now, with that being said, hair follicles can certainly be damaged due to stress from a ball cap or even head bands or bandanas if worn too tight and the follicle isn’t allowed proper rest or circulation. Like any part of the body, the pores and hair follicles need to breathe and be cleansed on a regular basis. If there is an abundance or sweat or even product build up that is trapped on the scalp the follicle can be clogged causing in-grown hairs, slowing of hair growth, or even as bad as permanent follicle damage. A good practice to have, especially for men, is to use a clarifying shampoo 1 to 2 times a week to cleanse the scalp of any product build up, dirt and grime, and old skin cells.

So again, the quality and amount of… or lack of hair that you may have on your head is genetic, so before you decide to completely throw out all of your favorite ball caps, take a look through your family tree and see who you may have to thank. In the meantime, remember, a good clarifying shampoo is a good idea and also, give the ball cap a day off and let the scalp breathe!

In the salon, or from a box?

This is it! The age old debate. We have heard it all when it comes to the discussion of at home color from a box and getting hair colored in a professional salon by a professional stylist.

Whether it be convenience, cost, health, or taking the time do so, here are some really great points from jadabeauty.com as to why professional color will always be the better choice.

Boxes VS Professionals

Color is a fun and great way to change up and enhance your look and we love to help you do that. The thing to remember is to keep it safe and inexpensive. Your stylist can help you do both! We hope this helps in your future color decisions!
