4 Ways To Wear A Bun!

Gather up your bobby pins, hair spray and scrunchies because the bun is back! You heard me ladies, women across the country are totally digging this sleek red carpet look.

So whether you’re going for a polished look, or simply just trying to disguise a bad hair day, check out these tips on how to master the latest bun looks!

1. Bohemian Bun: The secret to creating this bun is to forget about perfection. The whole look around this hairstyle is the rustic and untidy appearance.

  • Start by creating a higher ponytail in the back of the head.
  • Take small sections of the ponytail pinning them up at the base while letting loose ends fall naturally.
  • Pull your hair out of the ponytail, which frames your face and gives you that messy bohemian bun type of look.
  • You can also braid parts of your hair if you want to add some spice to the look!

2. Classic Sleek Bun: This style is perfect for all occasions. So whether you are going out on the town are simply want your hair out of your face, try recreating this quick and easy style!

  • Prep your hair with a high shine smoothing serum
  • Blow-dry your hair away from your face.
  • Tightly pull back your hair and create a secure ponytail in the back of your head.
  • Separate the ponytail into two top and bottom sections, clipping the bottom section out of the way.
  • Loop the top section downwards, securing it with pins underneath the base of the ponytail.
  • Then, use the bottom section to wrap around the base of the bun and secure tightly using another pin. We recommend using the Mia Bobby Pins, which have a strong hold!
  • Finish with a hairspray to keep the bun in place!

5 Ways To Curls Without The Heat

Everyone knows that the safest way to protect your hair while curling is by using no heat, and trust me ladies achieving no heat curls is not just a dream! They can easily be created while simultaneously keeping your hair as healthy as possible. Here is a list of some of our favorite over-night no heat curl techniques.

1.  Overnight Braids. This is an easy classic. Try with slightly damp hair, not completely wet or dry. The next morning your hair will have that beach wavy look!

2.  Small Twisted Buns. Let your hair naturally dry 95% of the way and then bobby pin small sections into a bun to dry the rest of the way.

3.  Sea Salt Dreads. (I know dreads? but trust) After the shower, don’t comb, just flip your head over and back. Spray with a bit of sea salt spray and scrunch the naturally separating pieces. To get this salty day-at-the-beach look, we suggest using the Sedu Beach Beauty Sea Salt Spray.

The Difference Between Ceramic, Tourmaline, & Ionic Dryers

Tons of merchandisers throw around the words ceramic, tourmaline and ionic and while they sound great, what do they actually mean?

Knowing the difference and meaning is important so that you don’t spend more money than necessary for a feature that you don’t need or won’t use. Let’s talk about these terms in relation to dryers.

1)Ionic: When used in hair dryers, negative ions break up the water molecules into smaller drops that evaporate on the outer layer of the hair quicker. This helps close the hairs cuticles to retain moisture in the process.

What’s so good about it? It lessens the amount of heat and damage to the hair. These negative ions cause the cuticle to remain flat, eliminate frizz and make the hair look and feel healthy.

Best For: All types of hair but those with kinky, curly hair especially.

Ionic Dryer –> Solia 1875W Thermal Ionic Hair Dryer 

Our top rated Ionic Dryer, with over 800 users giving it 4.5 stars!  Italian engineered dryer is designed to produce millions of negative ions that benefit the hair, making it shinier, smoother, and healthier.

2)Tourmaline: The tourmaline found in hair dryers can either be a coating on the inside of the device or it refers to the mineral used make up parts of the dryer. Read more

Hair Loss & Toppik

As the motto goes, here at Folica it’s all about the hair™. It is our job to obsess over hair, but hair obsession reaches a whole new level when one starts losing it.  With age and years of treatment, hair once full and shiny starts to thin and fade. But Alas!, there are a number of different treatments. Toppik, a favorite at Folica, caters to different stages of hair loss and areas of the head

Hair loss can vary from mild to severe.  Hair usually begins to thin at the forehead and at the top of the crown.  It is a problem that can afflict both men and women and there is no single underlying cause. Hair loss can be brought on by medication, stress, illness, and can also be caused by genetics or by simply growing older.
