Alterna Caviar Overnight Hair RESCUE
Sleep with damaged/color treated hair and wake up with results. Remember, the more you use it the more results you will notice!

Let’s not forget putting on heat protectant before using any kind of heat tool onto your hair. Your hair will love you for this!

 

Now that your hair is back to its nourished state and ready to style, we have some looks that will drop hearts this Valentine’s Day!

Straighten your hair for a sleeker look or go for a blowout for more volume and body.

Flourish With Some Curl!

Be romantic in some curls. The bigger the curling iron rod, the bigger the curl! Brush them out for a looser look or grab smaller sections of hair for tighter curls.

Give Your Hair A Romantic Boost!

Show your sweet side with a simple up-do! Make a braid into a headband or leave some hair pieces out framing your face for a sexier feel. Half hair up-do’s work too!

Feeling a bit more like a daring darling this valentine’s day? Blush in these styles!

Throw on some pink Kevin Murphy color bug on your ends or add some pink/red peek-a-boos!

Roll Out the Red Carpet for Yourself This Valentine’s Day!

We are in the midst of award season – hello stunning dresses, hair, and makeup! As many of us watch the stars stroll down the red carpet, we wonder, “Why can’t my hair be that nice every day? How can I look like this for Valentine’s!?

Don’t worry about how perfect their hair may look because trust me, you can do it yourself at home! I want to help you create a look for Valentine’s Day, whether you need to be restaurant-ready or at-home-effortless with your girlfriends enjoying a glass of wine.

The trend of a bun has been seen for months now but some of us at Hair Republic | Salon can’t take the staple out of our hair wardrobe. Do you blame us? It is simple and easy even for someone who never plays with their hair. Here we have the top hair trend in the past year and how you can tailor it to your own style.

The easiest and quickest way, is to use a “hair doughnut” or “sock bun”. The gist of it is to place your hair into a tight pony tail, however high, low, or to the side you want. Next, you wrap the end of the ponytail around the hair doughnut and continue rolling the doughnut all the way down to the base of the pony.

It can look something like this:

The best part is how sharp you can look with a bold lip colour, such as Lauren Conrad pictured above. Hanging out with the girls, running errands, going to class, last minute date? You don’t have to feel the need to dress up and a messy bun will be the perfect touch!

You can purchase the hair doughnut at H&M which comes in Light Beige for blondes, Brown and Dark Brown for brunettes:

     As someone who juggles school, work, a social life, and trying to keep up with the trends, I am never surprised at the compliments I receive when rocking the bun. This hair style is a solution to my every day life! After practicing once or twice, you will get the hang of it – I guarantee.

Create, discover, play around, add your personal touch, no need for step by step directions!

And let me tell you, these starlets come home at the end of the day, just like us, and probably put their hair in a less chic bun.
