Hair looks everyone should 
wear this winter

​PRNewswire/ -- With winter around the corner and following the biggest trends from Fashion Week in New York, London, Milan and Paris, FHI Brands, one of the most recognized styling product brands among hairstyling professionals, wants to share some hairstyle ideas to match the season's trends.
     With the help of fashion, stylist and social media influencer Lavenda Memory, from Lavenda's Closet, and FHI Brands artist Vanessa Bautista, FHI Brands is introducing a series of hairstyling tips that perfectly match the fashion tendencies for this fall, helping to bring the latest hair trends from runway, to reality, with tips and looks from the experts, so you are runway-ready for all the events.
    "I'm so excited about all the fashion trends for the cold season! This year's fashion is all about power colors, Victorian necklines and over-sized, vintage-inspired coats. From monochromatic looks to sleek coats and statement boots, using pieces of clothing and accessories in red will help you bring color to your fall wardrobe and fire up your style," recommends Lavenda.
     But even though the saying goes "You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it," a trendy outfit doesn't shine as much if it is not completed with a great hairstyle to match it. "FHI Brands embody unique styles and high-performance styling tools that deliver salon results to help you achieve the runway look, in real life," says hairstylist and FHI Brands artist Vanessa Bautista.
     Vanessa recommends the following hairstyles that go with the season's trend:  
     "The fall-winter trends reflect bold colors, retro tendencies and unique styles to follow," Vanessa says. "Update your hairstyle with a medley of hair textures, and switch up your look while staying on trend this season. FHI Brands is my go-to heat-protecting ally – their tools help me create virtually any style! The FHI Heat Platform 1" styling iron is perfect for smoothing out the extra frizz and texture near roots and helps me create that middle part that's so on-trend. A low ponytail tied with an over-sized ribbon can help emphasize this season's apparel pieces. Using a styling iron for a sleek, classic look or a curling iron to add some texture and volume to your pony are great ways to add a personal touch. You can also go further and try a Whimsical Milkmaid Braids look to pair with your retro fashion wardrobe."
     Lavenda Memory couldn't agree more and she is completing her fall look using Vanessa's hairstyles tips. "I'm using FHI tools to create looks that match my winter wardrobe, and I'm inspired by the brand's signature red featured on their tourmaline plates and barrels. These amazing styling tools are definitely a must-have in my "HAIRSTYLING" closet!" Lavenda adds.

Hair Talk with JoJo the Hair Care Expert
Beauty and Barber
Q: JoJo I read your column every month, and I’ve bought some of the products you’ve recommended and love them. My problem is that my hair and scalp are extremely dry. What shampoo and conditioner would you suggest, and what should I do at night? Even when I oil my scalp at night, it’s dry in the morning.
A: Thanks for the support. Some of the Dudley staff branched off and launched a new line launched Influance, and I love it. They have a natural line that’s enriched with rosemary and it’s great for dry scalp as well as promoting hair growth. This time of year, we’re inside more . Without the sun, our bodies, hair and scalp suffers. The rosemary and mint in the products stimulates and opens pores, allowing your natural oils to secrete. I also recommend sleeping in a sleep cap. We sell caps that are treated with argon oil. They really help. 
Q: JoJomy hair is breaking. My new stylist gave me a relaxer and color the same day. She said it was a rinse, but it burned a little when he put it on. Now, my hair is thinning bad. What can I do to save it?
A: You might need professional help. Us professionals are trained to work with liquid proteins that could reduce your breakage instantly. Using them improperly could make your breakage worse, so leave the liquid proteins to the pros. If you’re trying to work wit it yourself, I’d suggest Dudley Hair Rebuilder. It’s a great cream protein conditioner that can stabilize your breakage quickly. Oiling your hair and scalp with Dudley’s Vitamin ADE Oil or Design Essential’s Herbal Complex will help to minimize your shedding, while we let the conditioner do their job. And, you’re correct. If the color started irritating your scalp, chances are it was stronger than a rinse.
Q: JoJo how do you feel about hair vitamins?
A: Hair vitamins are good. In most cases, we take vitamins because we’re not getting the proper nutrients from our diet - too much fast food, not enough fruit and vegetables, processed meats, not enough sun, etc... But, vitamins can’t cure aging or some hereditary conditions. I’ve had mothers, daughters and granddaughters with the same hair line and thinness in the same areas. Sometimes our style choice contributes to thinning and hair loss that vitamins can’t undo, as well as aging. As we get older, your hair changes. It doesn’t grow as fast as it did in your teens. Yet, it still sheds roughly 120 strands per day, and the texture usually gets softer. You can still have a full beautiful head of hair, but vitamins may not cure all of your hair concerns. Don’t underestimate the value of good hair care, proper shampooing, conditioners and style choice.
