And they won't remove the anonymous feature............
People develop a preference for certain tools after they leave school, when they are in the real world.
All those years ago when I was in school, I learned to use a scalpmaster brush and a vent brush. Neither of which I actually use in the salon.
My favorites are: All sizes of round brushes with medium sized handles- preferably with rubbery grips. I love the monster brush for straightening hair. I have no preference for metal or ceramic. the brush has to be comfortable for my hand to use.
I also use basic comb-out brushes, I think they like 1.75 each. Sometimes Marlo has 'em at buy one get one free deal.
Times vary- it depends on their hair and what we are trying to achieve. I also agree with Anonymous that you should watch your co-workers.
My blowdrying techniques depend on my mood and the results that I'm looking for. It doesn't matter if it's curly or fine. I did learn most of them thru advance classes. I've learned to use various techniques to get the same style, so that I'm not reliant on any one tool.
My favorite brushes are the Paul Mitchell sculpting, paddle, and styling brushes. They've lasted the longest, seeing that I usually have to get a new paddle brush about every 2-3 months. They are also a better quality brush.
I love all round thermal ceramic brushes(no specific brand) because they leave the hair smoother and work faster. I used a medium round brush on a client with whom I usually use a comb attachment and curling iron. You would have thought I turned her hair into gold. She was amazed!
As far as styling I use a feathering comb, a pick, or simply my hands/fingers.
Watch the various techniques of your co-workers. You'll notice that everyone does it differently. My shampoo & blowdry usu. takes 30-45min, with a flat iron/curl 45-60min,and very kinky hair(silkening) 60-90min.
mm that would be a haircut problem- not a blowdry problem. Even if the hair is one length, if it is hitting the shoulders, it will flip up. Has to be shorter or longer than the shoulders AND you cannot flip your fingers up towards you to cut- that creates a flip as well. Instead turn your fingers under hold the hair then lift up to cut so the hair is slightly undercut. Also if you put too much curl with the round brush the hair will flip. Try a flat iron and just bend the ends.
If you want the hair to go under easily.... The hair should be cut at an angle downwards... such as /not straight out. - When you cut straight out, or at an upwards angle... \
You will create hair that will push the bottom hair out which will create a flip. I hope my illustrations help what I am trying to say. By the way, this is
As for having them put their head down that is great to undercut the bottom layer, but if you put layers in the cut as well.. they should be cut at the proper angle to support the style you are trying to achieve.
Could you clarify what you mean by the curl always follows the weight?
I knew I wouldn't get a reply... hmp.
Depending on the angle , it will help the hair curl for you. If you want the hair to flip out, then the angle should be on the outer shell of the hair. shortes to the outside longer to the inside, or nap.(under neath) If you want the hair to flip under than you want the hair shorter under neath, and longer to the outer shell like a 45 degree but from the nap out.
It does make a huge difference, and once you get it , it will help your styles look great.
Don't sweat the small stuff.
No, I said you were dissing me on another thread.... You know, the Hot_locks thread...
and you will Taya!
But really, if a post offends you, the best thing to do is walk away from it and then re-read it later. Sometimes you'll see that it doesn't affect you like it initially did. It's may seem amazing....but this works. The interpretation of the post is entirely up to the mood of the reader.
I know that I read things differently in the morning than I do in the afternoon.
And another thing: If certain posters here seem to always post in a style that is impudent, then why not think "well, gee THAT one seems to have a problem.....they are just words so it is NOT my problem! la la la la!" The only other advice I can think of for this is to: either ignore it and continue posting what you have to say or read around the stuff you find useless and seek out the stuff that is pertinent to the topic and go from there.
Know that "hoover" is lurking, Anything that is downright rude, insulting or filled with other disturbing flavor will be erased.
Everyone has the right to opine here as well as discuss topics of the trade.
The way I look at this bulletin board is this: It's like a cut stone. It has all of these facets (posters) that shine in their own way. Some I never agree with, some I always agree with, Some I sometimes agree with, Some I pretty much ignore, Some I can play with, Some show obvious impurities and others just shine.....etc....etc..etc. You get the picture.
And all of these things are what makes me stay with this site. I like being a part of all of the differences. I have learned something from just about everyone here.
I think that she can only post on this thread because of the suscribe feature. I'm guessing that anyone who has subscribed to any thread before they removed the anonymous feature can post anonymously?
It's because I am special
Actually it is because their web guy does not change the code that "include my signature" is AUTOMATICALLY selected. That is what needs to be done. So incase BTC was wondering... lmao!
