Looking for a holiday hair style that is elegant but different? Try this Antique Head Crown style complements of our friends at Madison Reed.

How to Create a Stunning Antique Head Crown Hair Style
1. With your hair in a center part, take a one-by-two inch section at the front and braid. Repeat this on the other side.
2. Lift up a section of hair from the crown of your head. Gently back comb (comb down on hair towards head) to build volume.
3. Smooth the backcombed section back and secure your braids with bobby pins.
4. Attach a dramatic hair accessory where the first braid is pinned.
5. Attach the accessory to the other braid. Let the piece rest gently into your curls.
6. Get creative with the beautiful pieces you own, like necklaces, brooches, and more. This look was made with a jacket closure discovered years ago at an estate sale, and it has gained new life as a hair accessory.
Even the simplest of styles can be dramatic with a little extra sparkle. Give your hair that extra shine every day with Madison Reed Radiant Color Kit or the new semi-permanent Color Reviving Gloss. Madison Reed’s hair color is better for you and better for your hair as it contains no harsh chemicals like PPD or ammonia. Find your perfect hair color now!

Holiday Hair Tutorial

How to Create a Bejeweled Top Bun

1. Gather hair up to your crown and put into a ponytail. Leave a few flattering face-framing tendrils loose.

2. Pin hair securely into a messy bun with bobby pins.

3. Bedazzle your bun with glittering adornments. We chose diamond spin pins by Goody. These and similar accessories are easy to find in drugstores and even easier to use!

Holiday Hair Tutorial

Big and Bold Barrettes

1. Start by giving yourself a deep side part. This will create the look of bangs without a haircut (and possibly become a conversation starter at parties!).

2. Take your favorite barrette and clip all the hair that you gathered to the side.

3. The bigger the barrette the better! It’s a simple way to stand out in the crowd.

Even the simplest of styles can be dramatic with a little extra sparkle. Give your hair that extra shine every day with Madison Reed Radiant Color Kit or the new semi-permanent Color Reviving Gloss.

Madison Reed’s New Color Reviving Gloss Makes Every Day a Good Hair Day

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Great hair days feel great because people see you at your best! That’s why Madison Reed created Color Reviving Gloss, a semi-permanent color and deep conditioning treatment, to give you brilliant color and shine.

Color Reviving Gloss

A lot of people haven’t learned about hair gloss yet, but that’s about to change. Whether your hair is natural, color-treated, or highlighted, Color Reviving Gloss can do it all: repair hair so it’s super soft and supple, boost color, tone down brassy highlights, correct yellow-looking grays, and add light-reflecting shine. And it does all that without permanently changing your color, so you always have a choice.

Madison Reed’s gloss works on all hair types and comes in eight shades, including Glassa, a clear gloss that gives you all the benefits without changing your color. For women who celebrate their grays, Crema is a cool violet beige that counteracts yellow tones to leave you with a beautiful silvery color.

Color Reviving Gloss is easy to use: there’s no mixing needed. Every shade is already designed to deliver rich, dimensional color by international hair expert, Susan Roberts-Cooper. The tube even has a built-in applicator tip so you can apply the gloss directly to dry hair and get great results!

As always, Madison Reed focuses on both performance and long-term care of your health and hair. This breakthrough better-for-you formula is free from harmful added parabens, sulfates, resorcinol, phthalates, and gluten, and fortifies your hair with a Triple Care Complex of Keratin, Argan Oil, and Ginseng Root Extract.

Choose your color of Color Reviving Gloss at Madison Reed and look radiant every day!

5 Hair Health Tips for New Moms

Disclosure – this post contains affiliate links.

These days, it’s easy to find information about hair care. The challenge is how to sort fact from fiction. Madison Reed is here to help!

Dr. Jan Hansen, a board certified OB/GYN, explains the science behind common questions and popular hair tips so we can all make better decisions for our hair and health.

Hair Health Facts

1. Can I color my hair while pregnant?

It’s interesting to note that the American College of OB/GYN has no recommendations about coloring hair during pregnancy, yet many women are concerned. I chose to color my hair in all three trimesters with all four of my children. I wish that Madison Reed had been available back then. I would have been much more comfortable using Madison Reed Radiant Color Kit instead of the traditional smelly, harsh dyes.

Everyone’s pregnancy is different, so always consult with your personal physician. I feel Madison Reed products provide a better option and a better experience.

2. Why do some new moms lose so much hair?

Don’t worry, this is normal. Hair grows, rests, and sheds in cycles. During pregnancy, higher estrogen levels alter the hair cycles. The hair continues to grow, while the resting and shedding phases are paused. That’s why hair is longer, thicker, and fuller while pregnant.

After you deliver, the shedding and resting phases resume. All of the hair that would have been shed during the pregnancy can be shed all at once. It can be quite alarming losing clumps of hair! This is normal and within a few months, the hair will return to a normal cycle.

3. Is it true that hair can stretch 30% longer when wet?

Yes! Hair is made of 90% proteins that are held together by chemical bonds. When wet, these bonds are temporarily broken, allowing the hair to stretch and weaken. The bonds reform when dry and shrink back to normal.

4. How can I prevent damage to wet hair?

Because the bonds that hold strands together are temporarily broken, wet hair is vulnerable to damage. Follow these three simple rules to protect your hair. Use a wide-tooth comb or detangling wet brush. Avoid a tight ponytail while your hair is wet. When the hair dries and shrinks back, the ponytail could cause breakage. Wait until your hair is 80-90% dry before styling it.

5. Why do some people grow longer hair than others?

There is a limit to how long each person’s hair can grow, called the terminal length. The terminal length depends on a predetermined growing cycle. It usually is 3-5 years but can be as long as 10! The longer your growing cycle, the longer your hair can get. Considering hair typically grows 6 inches per year, 10 years of growing is really long hair!

While you can’t change genetics, you can protect your long hair by keeping it healthy and strong. Take care when you style your hair and use healthier hair products that can help prevent and repair damage to the hair.

How to Instantly Cover Roots and Gray Hair with Madison Reed’s Root Touch Up

How to Instantly Cover Roots and Gray Hair with Madison Reed’s Root Touch Up

Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Put the focus on you, not your hairline.

Newly launched this week, Madison Reed introduces Root Touch Up in a full spectrum of colors to conceal roots and grays on the go.

Root Touch Up

Think about all those times you need to look your best without waiting for a salon appointment or coloring your hair at home: an important meeting, a big reunion, or even an impromptu dinner date. Imagine whipping out a compact and quickly blending in the perfect color on your hairline, part, and stray grays. That’s the thought behind Root Touch Up!

Madison Reed created a lightweight powder in eight shades—from platinum blonde to rich black—that brushes on dry, blends seamlessly with your hair color, and stays put until your next shampoo… even if you’re leaving the gym or caught in the rain.

Root Touch Up

As always, Madison Reed focused on both performance and long-term care of your health and hair. Root Touch Up has no added parabens and is completely free of titanium dioxide (a possible carcinogen), sulfates (that strip hair of natural oils), and gluten (which can trigger allergic reactions).

You get all the benefits of dry shampoo too! This fine, micro-milled powder absorbs oil, adds volume, and has a light fresh fragrance that revives “next day” hair.

Root Touch Up

Madison Reed’s initial collection of eight Root Touch Up shades was just released and they are going quickly. Choose your perfect color now!

5 Pro Tips for Silky, Shiny Hair

(Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links)

Shiny hair often translates to healthier-looking hair as well. Here are 5 tips for achieving this lustrous look courtesy of Madison Reed

5 Tips for Shiny Hair

1. Protect from Heat:

Be sure to apply a heat protectant product to your hair before your heat styling or blow drying regimen to protect your hair from increased damage.

2. Banish Build Up:

All of the product we use to protect our hair or achieve a particular style can sometimes stick to the hair shaft and create build up. Performing a deep hair cleanse is a great way to restore shine and remove excess build up. Try using apple cider vinegar with a mixture of water to treat and cleanse your mane. Mix a one-to-one ratio of each and apply the mixture in the shower. Shampoo while the mixture is still on your hair and condition as usual.

3. Chill Out:

Finish a shower or bath with a cup of cold water on your hair. This will help lock down the hair cuticles, making the surface smoother, which reflects more light and offers incredible shine.

Water saving tip: Fill a big cup or pitcher with cold water while waiting for the water to warm up before your shower.

The Cool Shot Button: Use your hairdryer nozzle to direct cool air down the hair shaft. It will smooth out the cuticle and add a nice shine to your hair.

4. Stay Hydrated:

Drink plenty of water! Hydrated hair will shine from the inside out.

5. Condition, Condition, Condition:

Using a deep conditioner or a leave-in conditioner is essential when trying to achieve a shinier, healthier head of hair. Remember, hydrated hair is happy hair.

Hair Tutorial: Voluminous Blowout for Straight Hair
(Disclosure: this post contains affiliate links)
Ever wonder how the professionals get your hair so sleek and full of body? Madison Reed colorist Noelle shows you just how easy it is to achieve this voluminous style right at home in today’s hair tutorial!
NOTE: This style works best on straight or slightly wavy hair to get the most volume.
Full written instructions at the bottom of the page.

Madison Reed
Madison Reed
1. Wash and condition your hair using Madison Reed nourishing, color enhancing shampoo and conditioner set. Comb through your tresses using a big toothed comb. This will result in the least amount of damage to your wet locks!
2. Use a micro-fiber towel to gently squeeze out all excess moisture. The drier the hair the better the results!
NOTE: Avoid rubbing hair with a towel as it will damage your hair cuticles and make it look more frizzy.
3. Using a comb, section your hair into four horizontal sections (from temple to temple, ear to ear) and twist them into a bun. This will make the drying process MUCH easier.
4. If you have bangs or any shorter fringe around the face, start here as this section will dry the quickest. Using a round brush, swipe your bangs downward and side-to-side. Set your hair dryer to medium heat and direct the air-flow to blow downward from root to tip.
5. Release the bottom section of your hair and position the air flow downward towards the direction you will be brushing. Hold the round brush horizontally and curl your hair inward. Drape hair on your shoulder and allow it to cool off.
Pro tip: Using the cool button on your blow dryer to prolong your style.
6. Release the section of hair above this one and repeat step 5.
7. Release the section of hair above this one and repeat step 5 again. When you reach either side above the ears, the method of drying will change a bit. Hold the brush at a slightly vertical angle and twirl it inward. Don’t forget to use that cool button!
8. The final section at the top of the head is where you can get the most volume. Begin at the crown (back portion of this section) and position your brush horizontally. Round your hair inward and concentrate the air flow downward at the roots to get the most lift.
9. Finally, dry the remaining section of hair apply a light finishing spray.

How to Determine Which Shade of Red Hair Color is Best for You
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Fall is a perfect time to try some red hues. If you’ve ever fantasized about being a redhead, here are some basic tips to help you find your perfect shade.

Red Hair for Fall

First, decide if your skin has warm or cool undertones. Hold a piece of white paper up to your face:

  • If your skin coloring appears to be pink, you’re cool.
  • If it appears yellow or olive, you’re warm.

You can also look to the color of your eyes:

  • If you have brown eyes, warmer colors will compliment you more. Choose golden and coppery red shades.
  • If your eyes are light, like blue or green, choose a cooler red with mahogany or deep chestnut undertones.

Fair skin: A light strawberry blonde is beautiful.  Avoid mahogany tones that pale your already fair skin.

Medium skin: You can handle a deeper red, because there is more tone in your skin.  A medium coppery light brown or auburn shade would be gorgeous. Avoid wine shades that bring out yellow in the skin.

Dark skin: Go with a dark auburn to a mahogany red or a rich, chestnut brown. Avoid intense shades of red, as they can bring out subtle green undertones in dark skin.

A few things to consider when going red:

  • Watch out when coloring over existing color. It could effect the tone and depth of the red you desire. Do a strand test before coloring all over.
  • Add a gloss between colorings to keep your red vibrant. You can choose a clear gloss or a tinted one that will wake up and extend your color.
  • Red color tends to fade more quickly, so it’s essential that you use a shampoo and conditioner formulated for color treated hair, such as Madison Reed’s Madison Reed nourishing, color enhancing shampoo and conditioner set, to protect and extend your color.

Autumn Hair – 5 Tips to Go Darker for FallDisclosure: This post contains affiliate links.

Fall is just around the corner, good things are coming; autumn leaves, crisp refreshing air, pumpkin lattes…  A new rich, deep hue for you!  Here are some tips from Madison Reed for when you are getting ready to go darker.

1. Put Your Pigment Back

When going lighter for summer, pigments are stripped from the hair. This could be done purposely by lightening, highlights, or bleach, or it could be something natural that happens from sun exposure or from taking a dip in the pool. So, if pigments were taken out, we need to put them back in to go darker. This would be a great time to be a red head before eventually settling on a brunette shade to wow!

2. Keep Your Skin Tone in Mind

Adding tones to your locks is a lovely way to make your color rich and vibrant. But are you a cool or a warm skin tone? Generally people with cooler undertone like to wear silver jewelry and look great in cool colors like blue and white. Tones like mahogany, ash, and violet will look awesome on you!  People with warmer undertones find that gold looks best on them and can wear yellows and cream colors with ease. Reds, golds and copper look great on warm tones.

3. Go One Shade Lighter to Start

It is much easier to go darker than it is to go lighter. Choose a shade in the tonal family that you want and go one shade lighter. You just may end up loving the results, if not it’s a quick fix to go a bit darker on the next round.

4. Keep Your Ends in Mind

The summer tends to put a little bit of wear and tear on our hair with all the sun, swimming and fun. This makes our ends more porous, which means it wants to drink that color up. When coloring your hair darker it is important to keep this in mind. Application is key! Start darkening hair at the root and leave in for optimal gray coverage, once this has had time to process start combing color down to your mid-lengths and ends to finish the process. The ends don’t need as much time.

 5. Use Color-Safe Shampoo

It is important to take care of your color even after the process. Don’t wash that beautiful color down the drain. Color-safe shampoo’s are made to be gentle, have extra moisturizer, and keep your color vibrant. Try Madison Reed’s Madison Reed nourishing, color enhancing shampoo and conditioner set–it even has natural UV protection to keep the sun’s rays from dulling down your color.

Hot Hairstyles for Fall

(Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.)

Madison Reed Hair Color

Autumn is fast approaching and it’s all about ease and nonchalant simplicity. According to Madison Reed, top looks this fall include; twisted and fly away top knots; sexy, sixties style bouffants; creative braids; easy, loose mat waves; sleek center pats; and bobby pins galore!

Bobby Pins: Bobby Pins are coming out of hiding! Use them instead of barrettes to create beautiful art styles with impeccable hold power and infinite interest.

Mat Waves: The wave of fall for long locks is casual and elegant in subdued, natural shades with just a touch of gold, effortless and beautiful.

Top Knots: For a practical work day style or a dramatic elegant evening look, the top knot is the way to go. Throw in a braid or two, let it fly away or twist it into a sleek coil. Keep it high and keep it simple.

Center Part: A crisp center part is a powerful look this season. It commands attention and suggests a total clarity of intention. It’s a high impact style and with just a little effort you can break away from your “comfortable” parting and dramatically refresh your look!

Creative Braids: The hottest trend this fall is the creative braid. It is the most versatile, interesting, and fun style of the season. You can braid to the side, tie them, french, fishtail, crooked, milkmaid and everything in between. Don’t be afraid to play and innovate!

Sixties Bouffant: Break out your back combing brush and give it a retro lift! You can go big for a striking and sexy nest or just give it a little bump up for a voluptuous vintage look.

And as you warm up you hair color for the season, check out some of the gorgeous reds and brunettes Madison Reed has to offer. Use FALLHAIRCOLOR and receive 50% off your first purchase at Madison-Reed.com.

7 Tips for Repairing Summer-Damaged Hair

(Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.)

Sunny days lounging by the pool, exploring the great outdoors, and traveling far and wide – all the summer excitement has been harsh on your hair. Here are a few tips to get it back in shape.

Summer_Hair_Repair

1. Turn Down the Heat
Your locks have been suffering the heat all summer long. Give them a break by using a cooler hair dryer setting for a bit while your hair recuperate.

2. Stash the Irons
Try out some of the new fall styles that don’t require a flat or curling iron. Your hair will thank you, and you might find a look you like even better.

3. Get a Trim
After all the sun, wind, and chlorine it’s a wonder you have any nutrients left in your hair – and the result is split-ends and frizz. Getting a little trim is an easy way to start fresh for the fall.

4. Avoid Alcohol
…in your hair products that is. If you’re hair is already feeling dry and dehydrated, using styling products that have alcohol in them, like gel, will make your hair even more brittle.

5. Get a Good Brush
Use a boar bristle brush to brush your hair thoroughly at least once a day. This will help distribute your hair’s natural oils throughout your tresses and help your hair heal any damage on its own.

6. Do Some Deep Conditioning
It can be as easy as leaving a deep conditioner in instead of rinsing it out or trying out a new hair masque. Either way, your hair needs this like a cool drink of water on the hottest summer day.

7. Use a Healthier Hair Color
Looking to darken your shade for the fall? A lot of permanent hair color formulas contain ammonia, resorcinol, PPDs and alcohol, all of which can damage your hair far beyond what it’s already been through this summer. Give your hair a nutrient boost instead with Madison Reed hair color. We don’t use any of those chemicals! Instead we pack our salon-quality formula with naturally-derived ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and ginseng root extract for vibrant, long-lasting color in your favorite fall shades.
