The Quick Fix Guide to Winter Hair

Hat hair, hair loss, dry scalp, and brittle hair are just a few complaints I hear during this time of the year. As the winds blow stronger and the chill sets in, clients always ask, “Is winter damaging to my hair and scalp?”
When the temperatures drop, loss of moisture and static electricity are two culprits behind most hair dilemmas. Two simple solutions can easily combat these issues.
1. Static Cling from Winter Attire
When walking around looking like you’ve been electrically shocked won’t do, all you have to do is add a little serum. The effects of all the friction from staticky fabrics from parkas, sweaters, scarves, and hats can be undesirable; but running some light serum through your hair will prevent the instant expansion once you come in from the cold. Pulling your hair back and keeping it place before putting on your winter gear will also prevent your hair from sticking up all over the place.
2. The Power Of the Hot Shower
While a hot shower, sauna, or soak in a warm jacuzzi provides a cozy respite from the cold, it also opens your hair cuticles, exposing them to dryness and static. By sealing the cuticle back, you can protect your hair. Simply wet a towel with cool water and apply it to your hair and scalp, following any warm water hair treatment. The cool water will reseal the cuticle, and keep it healthy and silky.
All you need is a little serum ( PAI SHAU Biphasic infasusion, Davines oi oil )) a towel and some cool water. Winter hair problems solved!

10 Refreshingly Short Haircuts That Are Making Waves in 2018 – POPSUGAR




Collarbone Lob

The cut: Collarbone Lob

Celebrity Inspiration: Emma Stone

Description: “Emma’s cut is a collarbone-length, long-angle bob,” said celebrity and editorial hairstylist Marshall Lin. “The key for this cut is to create a soft edge with a razor or point-cutting techniqu while adding on long layers to soften that edge.”

Style it: Lin said, “Use Pai-Shau Royal Abundance Mousse ($26) initially for volume, then Pai-Shau Texture Dust ($24) close to the root, and follow with a lightweight and flexible hairspray.”

Who it works for: “This cut softens the face and bone structure and has a lot of freedom when styling. It not discriminate on hair texture, so women with straight, curly, or wavy hair can rock it,” said Lin.

’80s Fade

The cut: ’80s Fade

Celebrity inspiration:Katy Perry

Description: “This is a woman’s fade haircut that you saw back in the ’80s punk era,” said Lin. “To create, leave the top with a horseshoe section — the width will depend on the end of your eye bone. Many stylists will use a buzzer machine here, but I’d prefer using a scissor over comb to give a bit of a feminine kick for the fade and not be as extreme.”

Style it: “I’d use Davines This Is a Medium Hold Finishing Gum ($32) here and finish with Pai-Shau’s medium and flexible hold Sublime Hold Hairspray ($30).

Who it works for: This look works for someone who’s bold and daring and ready to embrace that rocker edginess.

Vintage Pixie

The cut: Vintage Pixie

Celebrity inspiration: Scarlett Johansson

Description: “This is a classically sexy short haircut worn by icons like Mia Farrow,” said Lin. “The key for this cut is to create that soft-edge hairline, leaving the top section about three inches of side-cut so that while it’s short, there is still room to style. The back needs to have a half-inch length from the hairline so you can still get the softness.”

Style it: “Styling this cut is a breeze,” noted Swayze. “On already straight hair, use a very small touch of Batiste XXL Plumping Powder ($9). When I say a touch, I mean it — this stuff is powerful and will be your new best friend. It adds immense texture for a fraction of other texturizing powders.”

Who it works for: “This is a more feminine short haircut that works for women who want to show off their features without losing the option to style,” said Lin.

 Midi-Lob With Curtain Bangs

The cut: Midi-Lob With Curtain Bangs

Celebrity inspiration:January Jones

Description: “This is a medium-length bob with a soft bang. This haircut is soft, but you can still feel the volume and thickness,” said Lin. “You want to keep the length two inches below your chin or at the base of your collarbone. For bangs, create fringe angle and point-cut or razor cut for a straight line.”

Style it: Swayze said, “Apply some Bumble and Bumble Thickening Full Form Volume Mousse($17) on wet hair and roughly dry with a blow dryer. Use a 1-1/4 curling iron and wrap random pieces of hair around the barrel, some going forward, some going backward, to create that deconstructed wave. Follow up by using a touch of IGK Down and Out Dirty Spray ($14) to give it the perfect bedhead look.”

Who it works for: This cut works for someone who wants a feminine, not too-short but not too-long cut that can go glamorous or casual.

Marshall’s Chair interview with supermodel Olesya Senchenko, the founder and designer of swimwear line Skaya.

Model- Olesya Senchenko/ Hair by Marshall Lin
Do you remember how you met Marshall? Tell me about it. 
O– I met Marshall a few years ago. I was looking for a hair stylist who I can trust not only with my hair but also with my life secrets. As everybody knows, a hair stylist is not only the person who does your hair but also your therapist. Upon our first meeting, I knew that he was right for me! His professionalism and his kind personality rise above any doubt!
Since you’ve been seeing Marshall, what have you noticed about your hair?
O– My hair became healthier from the roots to the ends! It became shinier and softer! It’s even growing much more quickly! Also it’s easy for me to maintain the same perfect hair style even when I don’t have time to see my Angel Marshall! 
Oleysa wear Skaya Swimwear 
Tell me a little about your modeling career. How did you start? What have you worked on?
)-I started modeling when I was 16 years old. I won second place at the Beauty contest in Russia and that led me to sign a contract with my mother agency in Moscow. Then I went to Japan and Singapore, where I got great experience and the honor of appearing on covers of big magazines like Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, and Elle.
Then it was New York, Milan and Paris, where I got chance to work with famous designers including Prada, Ralph Lauren and Vera Wang.
As a young model in New York by yourself, what has been the most challenging? 
O-The most challenging was to be away from my parents and to live in a country where I can hardly speak the same language! It’s hard to be without family support at such a young age! It’s hard to make big decisions and organize your life. You become mature very quickly because you understand it’s not time to be a baby and complain about things!
How did you come up with your line Skaya? How do you describe Skaya swimwear?
O-After modeling for 10 years, I chose to use my passion for fashion design by creating my own unique, velvet swimwear line, specifically designed to complement women of all body shapes and style preferences.
 Skaya swim line is inspired by my travels all around the world. From cheeky Brazil to classy and sophisticated France, Skaya swim has a design for fashionistas everywhere. A lot of brands are afraid to try new fabrics and designs, I tried to do something special with mine.
Why cover your best parts when you could wear a suit that will define them? Best of all, while Skaya swimwear is durable enough to be worn around the pool or even in the ocean, their glamorous designs make them ideal for festivals and clubbing as well.
What does beauty mean to you? 
O-I think that we all notice that some women don’t have a classic beauty type, but something in them is attractive. Something in their walk, their smile or in their eyes…this beauty doesn’t change with age. This is called charisma! It’s all about your personality and the way you treat yourself!
If you could offer any advice to young aspiring models, what would it be?

O– I think the best advice that I can give to a young model is to believe in yourself! It’s a very competitive business! Also, don’t take it as a joke, be professional, and work on yourself! And remember you are unique, there’s not another girl in the world like you.

Is Going To Bed With Wet Hair Bad For You?

woman with wet hair

Ever hear that going to bed with wet hair will make you sick? You’re not alone. It’s one of those pieces of old-school advice that gets passed down from generation to generation, along with the thought that plucking one gray hair causes three to grow back and that only teenagers get acne.

Some people prefer to wash their hair at night for whatever reason—it fits with their schedule, they love that snooze button or they’ve been doing it for years without really thinking about it. But does going to bed with wet hair really, truly, actually make you sick? And even if it doesn’t, does it harm your hair? We went to the experts to find if the advice actually holds up—or not.

Ask the Doctor: Will Going to Bed With Wet Hair Make You Sick?

According to Amber Tully, MD, a family-medicine physician at Cleveland Clinic, the idea that sleeping with wet hair can cause illness is an old wives’ tale. (Sorry, mom.) The common cold—think sniffling, congestion or a runny nose—is caused by a virus that is in no way related to how damp or dry your hair is. “You may feel physically cold if you sleep with wet or damp hair, but this will not cause illness,” says Dr. Tully. But people associate being sick with feeling physically cold, she explains, which is probably why this mistake is so prevalent.

The common cold is caused by a virus that is in no way related to how damp or dry your hair is.

On the other hand, going to bed with wet hair can cause an entirely different set of issues—for your scalp. “A chronically damp or wet pillow may become a breeding ground for bacterial or fungal infections, since the combination of warmth and moisture allows many fungal elements to thrive,” says Dr. Tully. That could result in seborrheic dermatitis—a.k.a. dandruff, the most obvious sign of which is a chronically red, itchy or flaky scalp.

Ask the Hairstylist: Will Going to Bed With Wet Hair Damage Your Hair? 

Going to bed with wet hair can also create extra work in the AM. “Sleeping with wet hair causes your hair to set, which means your hair will turn out whichever way you sleep on it,” says Marshall Lin, a stylist at Frédéric Fekkai SoHo Salon. “Your hair can get tangled during sleep, and those knots can be harder to get out without causing breakage to strands.” He also seconds the point about damage to the scalp—noting that it’s not just your pillow that’s the problem. “The moisture, oil and body heat from your scalp can cause buildup and lead to dry scalp or dandruff,” he says.

“Your hair can get tangled during sleep, and those knots can be harder to get out without causing breakage to strands.”

If you have no other options besides going to bed with wet hair, it’s worth taking a few extra steps to protect it. First, let your roots dry a little bit, which can help alleviate scalp issues. Then, “comb your hair well and apply a light, leave-in conditioner,” says Lin. “Since your hair will set overnight, you’ll want to go to sleep with it smooth and neat.” Lin recommends working Fekkai PrX Reparatives Leave-In Conditioner Spray through the mid-lengths to ends, which will help keep hair smooth. In the morning, comb your hair and quickly blast your roots with a hair dryer to ensure your scalp is completely dry. If your hair is wavy or curly, work a curl cream or oil through the ends—otherwise, you’re good to go.


While hitting the sheets with wet hair won’t kill you, it’s generally not a good idea for your hair and scalp. If time is the enemy at bedtime, we recommend a quick dry using the ultra-fast Harry Josh Pro Tools hair dryer. You can also dry and protect your hair at the same time with a fast-absorbing hair turban (it’s comfy enough to wear while sleeping). And—most important—choose the right brush or comb to detangle your wet strands, while minimizing breakage. Try The Wet Brush, which is designed especially for wet or damp hair.
