Max Out Your Summer Style!

Summer is quickly approaching, and you know what that means: Fun in the sun and wind in your locks. Blades Stylist Leanna Burckle gives her top tips for avoiding sun damage and getting the most out of your summer style!

Whether or not you color your hair, you’ve probably noticed that your hair fades when it’s overexposed to sunlight. Don’t shun the sun just because you want to protect your hair! “Color fading may be most prevalent in the summer,” says Leanna, “but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the sun! I recommend Schwarzkopf’s BC Sun Protect spray which protects against sun damage and acts as a sunscreen for your hair.”


Looking to protect your glossy locks at the pool? “All hair is subject to damage from chlorine, but blondes have the hardest time maintaining their color,” says Leanna. That’s why Blades developed a Swimmer’s Treatment for just $25. “It takes about fifteen minutes, and really helps remove the chlorine from your hair. Plus, it’s safe for kids!” In between treatments, make sure you use a swim cap to help limit your hair’s exposure to chlorine, and use Malibu C’s Swimmers Wellness shampoo!


With the right products and a little planning, your hair will thrive all summer long! To learn more or schedule an appointment, give us a call at (502) 893-0431.

faux-bob-2The Faux Bob – Want to rock a bob, but aren’t feeling quite up to the challenge of cutting your hair that short? Master the Faux Bob this spring! We love this style because it works with all hair textures, and creates a dramatic look without taking a big risk, plus it’s the perfect feminine look to pair with floral prints.
