Going to a hair salon is one of the biggest treats you can give yourself. Here are some tips to make your salon experience a lot better.
How to tie your hair without damaging it.
Many women like to tie their hair into a really tight ponytail for working out or while doing household chores.
While it may be the best for heavy lifting, it’s not the best option for your hair and scalp.
If you have your hair tied up a lot, the elasticity of your hair will slowly fade.
I understand, a ponytail is one of those must-haves/ must-dos in life, so here is how you can tie your hair up with less damage.
The Kitsch Hair Tie
- Pull your hair back as usual, then use the back of a tail comb or your finger and loosen any tension around your scalp.
- Use thicker hair ties like these from THE KITSCH . They put less tension on your hair.

As winter approaches, your natural instinct is likely to color your hair darker. But I don’t think so.

But I don’t think so.
In the winter, most of us would already wear a lot of black, grey or solid colors. So think about this. If you’re wearing a lot of darker colors, and your hair is dark, you may look a little dull.

‘ I don’t believe women should change hair colors as season does. Otherwise what would happen with the beautiful Scandinavians Blondes in the winters! Go Darker!? Never! ‘ Star Colorist Rogerio Cavalcante from Maria Bonita Salon
Don’t be afraid to go lighter in the winter, since you won’t get a lot of sunlight reflection off your hair during the colder seasons.

‘ During the winter season, the sun casts a pretty white and grey light. Because of this , many people think that they have to change their hair color to be darker and warmer, but in fact the opposite is true, I recommend that, during the winter, blonds go to more of an ASHY/COOL blond- even ICY ‘ Celebrity Colorist David Michaud from Frederic Fekkai Soho
Here are some things to keep in mind when coloring your hair (these are tips that go beyond the winter season)
1) When looking for the best tone for your face, turn to your eyebrows, eye color and skin color, to find something complementary.
2) If your hair is already light, don’t be afraid to go platinum blonde or a cooler blonde.
3) Trust your hairstylist and colorist. Spend time to chat with them, so that you can make sure all of you are on the same page.

What is the story behind the founding of Kasho?
The history of Kasho lies in the city of Seki Japan. This city has been the central hub for Japanese Samurai Sword making for the last 700 years and have been the finest craftsmen of Japanese steel since then. That history and spirit of the craftsman has been passed down in a direct line to Kasho through Kai, Kasho’s parent company. Kai is one of the finest steel makers in the world, with such prestigious companies like Kershaw Hunting Knives, Shun Cutlery, as well as Kasho Shears.

–How do Kasho shear relate to hairstylist?
Kasho shears relate directly to hairstylists through the steel and craftsmanship that go into every single shear. For instance, a cheaper shear is made with very poor materials and steel which will only stay sharp for a hairstylists maybe 2-4 months. Kasho shears are made with a very high end steel, VG-10, which will stay incredibly sharp for up to a year if properly maintained, and even longer for some of the higher end models, like the Kasho Millennium. This saves time and money in the long run, and provides an incredible shear to work with throughout the lifetime of the shear.
–There are so many scissor brands on the market, what is so special about Kasho?
The biggest difference lies in the high quality of our steel, which keeps a sharp edge longer than many scissors on the market. This is a huge advantage to a stylist because they can cut more accurately much, much longer and saves about $30 a quarter on sharpening. If properly oiled and tensioned regularly, they will keep their edge for up to a year. We use 100% Japanese steel that is hand crafted in Japan with an edge that is much sharper than most on the market.
–What is your advice to new hairstylist when it comes to choosing a good pair of scissors?
Do your research! Find out from the companies not only what kind of steel they use, but where they are made. Japanese steel is regarded to be some of the best steel in the world, but there also different grades of steel, just like there are different grades of meat. Make sure you get something that will last you a lifetime, because form and functionality will serve you more than a scissor with jewels in it. But more than anything, buy nice things. It might take time for a new stylist, but it will serve you greatly in the long run.
