Been thinking about getting my hair cut for a while now but don't know any good salons. Any suggestions??? Thinking about getting this hairstyle...!  
I initially requested ombre highlights with a "funky" color.  The salon I went to told me the only way to do this was to bleach the hair first, then to color.  I agreed accept the highlights came out looking more like two giant skunk stripes.  I also had to re-color my hair weekly because the color kept fading from a deep plum to a washed out pink/red.  It drove me nuts so I decided to do something natural and permanent. I went to a different salon and they assured me that my hair would not be further damaged.  I had more highlights put in with bleach to blend out the thick stripes and then color was applied over the lightened hair. That washed out after 2 shampoos and my hair is completely damaged.  I'm so confused because I thought permanent hair color would not wash out, let alone in just 2 washes!  Did I get ripped off?  Also, is there a way to color hair without bleaching first? Thank you!!!
Hello all!   I have been using drugstore shampoo/conditioners, nothing expensive or too fancy for pretty much my whole life. I have tried more expensive shampoos/conditioners but have never seen a significant change in my hair to fork over the extra money. It's funny because I spend a lot on styling products, but cringe for some reason over the high prices of salon shampoos! I think it's just because I want to make sure they actually do something for me. Do you all think that the higher end shampoo and conditioners are actually worth it? If so what do you like? Or what do you like from drugstores?   I have very thick, wavy, blonde hair that I wash 2-3 a week. Would love any recommendations!
my curls will not hold for the life of me. I have the T3 whirl trio. I prep my hair with Bumble and bumble invisible oil primer and B+B  flexible hold hairspray, and I also add a bit more spray when I'm done and my curls still fall out by the end of the day. It's so frustrating! Any tips on what other products to use that won't make my hair crunchy from hairspray?
Hi, Everyone!  Does anyone have a recommendation for a shampoo/conditioner for sensitive scalp?  I've tried the "Jason" products and so far, they've worked well (and are affordable!), but feel that they're not the best for my hair.  I was also looking at the "Human+Kind" products, on the Sephora website...any feedback about these or any other products??  Thanks!!!
Which is better for color treated frizzy hair...Living proof No Frizz or Living Proof Perfect Day shampoo and conditioner?
I have seen many threads about dry shampoos and which are best for different scalp and hair type, but haven't found anything regarding thin, color treated, especially red hair.  If anyone has a recommendation I would love to hear it, including pointing me to an earlier conversation a missed.  Thanks for your time. 
I've just recently cut my hair for random reasons, and I've added a little touch of grey to it, which I really liked, I want to do the whole thing a greyish tone, or maybe a light lavender grey tone. Yes, or no?
Just an FYI for curly hair girlies. They have curl bars popping up in many places that specialize with curls and help you figure out the right hair cut, tools!  
So I see tutorials on how to create gorgeous high ponytails with volume. I can not seem to master this.  When I pin the poof it always falls flat within seconds and the ponytail always sinks down and doesn't stay high.  Any advice?  I've seen stylist videos where they use this tool where it's like a hair band with bobby pins on the side. I'm so curious about this.    Thanks in advance
IGK Consult Post.jpg
I am excited to announce our first ever Live Hair Consultation on BeautyTalk! Mark your calendars because this Wednesday, 3/22 from 10 am - 2 pm PST, the founders of IGK will be on BeautyTalk answering all of your hair questions.    This probably sounds similar to Live Chats and that's because it is. The difference is that Live Consultations are personalized to your hair and much longer than a Live Chat (FOUR hours). Because everyone's hair is different, we are encouraging participants to upload a photo of their hair along with their question. What we want is for you to feel like you're getting the (virtual) salon treatment so show them your hair and tell them about your hair type and hair goals for the best advice! The Founders of IGK are a group of four talented hairstylists who really know their stuff so they  can help you master your frizz, give tips on curling your hair or even give advice on the right cut for your face shape.      Be sure to follow the link below this Wednesday, 3/22! We'll be live from 10 am - 12 pm PST: ve-Hair-Consultation-with-IGK/m-p/2727916   See you there!  
am planning to get hair lace wig since i have light hair and i want long curly look, for daily use for long duration. what is your recommendation? is it safe? does it affect my real hair? also can i swim in it? which ones/sites you recommend?
I'm total virgin when it comes to dye, I also have very long (aka old) hair.  I've ordered the DryBar Blonde Ale shampoo and conditioner to fight brassiness from creeping in.  Does anyone have suggestions for other products that would be helpful?   Im fair and cool toned with blue eyes and naturally brunette; what make up might compliment my new look?
I LOVED Wen, but I see Sephora no longer carries it.  Is there a replacement for it that works like it does?  I have never been as happy with my hair as I have been with Wen, so I'd love to find something very similar.
And tbh, what is this mist anyways? Is it like a conditioning spray...? 
I like to wear my hair down with half upbraids but they barely ever work out. Are there any suggested hairstyles that I could do in 10 minutes or less?    P.S. 1 or 2 braids will not work because I have layered hair.
I've been natural forever but up until a few years ago struggled with excessive straightening. Now I usually only straighten my hair November- April. After my previous flat iron my hair will not curl. I've tried DIY masks and deep conditioners. Nothing is working. I refuse to big chop has anyone else ever experienced this after just one flat iron? I was using a new flat iron the NUME I can't remember which one I gave it away after this experience.
HI all, I have wavy hair that is also fine (not coarse at all) and there is a lot of it total. My issue is that it gets frizzy and out of control but all the curl or wavy hair products I have used make it look and feel dirty.  So far I have tried curl diva- dirty feeling, and big sexy hair- frizzy from Sephora.  Do people have any other options?  I would like for it to feel and look clean but not like I just rolled out of bed.  I currently don't blow dry, just finger comb and go.  I also wash every three days.    Thanks!
I had two balayage treatments 4 months apart and my hair has been breaking at the mid shaft since then.  My hair is fine and straight and my hair was lightened with bleach. I rarely use heat styling and use a UV protectant spray and Marrakesh oil after showering. I shampoo/condition every 2-3 days with Joico's KPak Colour Therapy shampoo and conditioner.  I need advice on a leave in conditioner or other treatment to help my hair stop breaking!    Thanks!
I want to be able to style my hair in updos and braids and things like that, but I it's so hard for me. I have layered hair so I don't want pieces sticking out every which way if I do normal braids. I also struggle with my curly frizz. I don't know what to wash it with or what to put in it to help it not curl so badly and to keep the frizz to a minimum. If anyone has any ideas please let me know, thank you!
Hi everyone, Would love to get loopy hair looks out of my fine hair. it is shoulder length, naturally curly/holds a curl.   I feel pretty good about the products I put on and in  my hair for straight and curly looks but what about styling tools?    Is anyone with fine hair using this tool or something like it? For long loops, should I be using a brush type product or more of a curling iron? P396012?skuId=1703560&icid2=products grid 396012#pdp-reviews Would love any and all advice. Thanks!  
Hi,   I switched from Kerastase to Living Proof about 2 years ago.  At this time I was dying my hair red.  Living Proof has been great for my hair.  No split ends, etc.  Last year I started going really gray so you guessed it - I'm dying my hair blonde.  I know going blonde is harsher on my hair and I'm having flyaway and frizz issues.  My hair is naturally wavy.  I've been reading on Moroccan oil and it seems to be a miracle product.  Would Moroccan oil work for me? I really need something to cut down on my frizz - what would you recommend.  Preferably sulfate free.   Thanks,
For a full 30 years I was totally satisfied with my long, easy to manage brown hair. It was fine. I cut it myself, I watched you tube videos, I played with layers, bangs, etc. But then...I had a baby, and I just don't feel like I have a fun look anymore. So now I'd like to try hair colour.   My dream is to go from warm brown to ash blonde ombré. How realistic is this? Can any beauty expert tell me before I make the leap to a salon consult? (I'm in the boonies, this is a commitment.) Is ombré still a thing? Are there any new trends in natural hair colour? 
My hair goes down to the top of my hips, and it's fairly thick as well. I don't color it either, so it's pretty soft and tends to fall pin straight. I am having the worst time getting the curls to hold the longer my hair gets. No amount of hairspray of any kind has proved to maintain hardly any style. I need something that will give me texture and prime my hair so it will hold better. I've found that anything that smooths it is a complete disaster for my curls. Any suggestions??
Is there synthetic tape-in hair extensions available? I have some ethical issue with the regular extensions and am even more so grossed out by the wearing some poor person's hair aspect :/
I have the double whammy of hair genetics. Very fine and not a ton of it, so I really need a hairbrush that detangles without breakage (as my hair easily gets tangled) and gives the illusion of volume or maybe a good shine! Thank you!
