Alright everyone, I am in love with this new product. The shipment is in!! I have been using this myself for over a month, and the results are in…. it is fantastic!! Want to know what it is?
OK. First product is in the be curly line. It is called the be curly curl controller. The name says it all. I have curly, layered, colored hair and it can easily gets frizzy and most products make my curls too tight. Be curly curl controller keeps frizz away completely, relaxes my curl for a looser curl and the best part is my hair does not feel stiff. Soft, light curls with frizz control all day. I wish you could hear my excitement for this product. Please just try this for yourself. It is super easily applied too. Just a dime size amount on damp hair, work through sectioned hair and dry with diffuser or air dry. I didn’t even mention the very Aveda fresh smell. It is made with organic lime, lemon, beramet, orange and other plant and flower essences. Perfect for spring time aroma.
The second fav product is the be curly curl enhancing hair spray. It absolutely compliments the curl controler with the same fresh lemon, lime aroma. It is a relaxed hold so your hair doesn’t feel stiff and untouchable. It expands while applied on damp hair and retracts to enhance curl. This whole line of be curly products work best all together. The shampoo, conditioner, preps, and the newest curl controller, and enhancing hair spray. Your spring time curls will love you. Not to mention the famous beach hair minus frizz. Happy curling everyone.

It is never too early to start thinking about hairstyles for prom. In my research for the cutest, hottest styles for your big day, I was pleasantly surprised. The updo’s are loose and fun. It wasn’t so stuffy looking and I’ve come across lots of curls. The curls can come to the side, or pinned up nice and neat. Laying across the shoulder is very sexy this year.
Make your appointment as soon as possible. Do not delay. I have been taking appointments for prom for weeks now. Bring in pictures. Lots of pictures. If you have accessories for your hair bring those in too.
As far as changing your hair color and whether or not to get high lites or low lites, you might want to get that done long before the prom to ensure you love it! A huge change can be very rewarding and spice up your big day even more. If you are going to try something completely new get a consultation first. Let the experts here help you decide.

Are you trying to grow long luscious locks? Want your long hair back? These are the top five ways to tackle that tedious task of growing your hair out. There is no magical pill or short cut but, you can do something to help it along.
Massage Your Scalp
take an extra 30 seconds to massage your scalp when shampooing. This promotes blood flow witch stimulates growth. Something so simple can increase your growth up to an inch in a year. The average hair grows ¼ inch a month.
Don’t Over Wash Your Hair!
Skipping everyday washing can save your hair from breaking due to the natural oils being striped away. Every other day is possible is ideal. It is a perfect excuse to buy some cute hats to wear on non-wash days.
The Right and Wrong Hair Brushes
Believe it or not the kind of brush you use can make or break your hair. Do not tear through wet hair it will only break your hair. Use a wide tooth comb to untangle before styling. While styling do not pull through to hard and fast as this tends to break the hair which doesn’t help.
Protect Your Hair
Use a heat protectant before styling hair with any heat. Sizzling your hair will leave fly-aways and cause split ends. On your day off or when you can don’t use any heat but, when you need to protect it. You’ll thank yourself later.
Be Picky About the Hair Products You Use
Our hair is one of the first things people see. Treat your hair well and it will look good for you. Condition it, use healthy products. We use Aveda products here and can’t say enough about natural compared to synthetic.
If your not sure what products are the best for you and your hair please feel free to stop in any time and consult with one of our many experts. As the Best Hair Salon in Matthews NC and Charlotte NC areas, we can help you determine what hair products would be best for your type of hair.

Lets talk easy, classic do’s that we can go straight from office to office cocktail party in a flash. Lets face it time is of the essence here. This is the busiest time of the year. Here is a few how to’s in a pinch and a couple of twists on the classics to stay on track with today’s trends.
1. Romanticize the messy bun.
Start with a bun at the nape of your neck. Twist whole bun in a ¼ turn, use pins to hold in place and curl ends that fall out. Spray with light hold hair spray to last all night long. Voila! Romantic and classy at the same time.
2. Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize
This is the easiest turn around from office to cocktail hours possible. Headbands and pins. Yes it is as easy as that. If you wore your hair down all day pin it up and put a thin gold plated headband to glam up the evening. If you wore you hair up all day take it down, shake it out, and pin the sides back with décor pins. Wow! You can’t get any easier!
3. Classic Side Chignon
Some hairstyles never go out of style, the classic side chignon is a perfect
example. Start to twist hair from behind the ear on the opposite side of where you want the bun. Twist in a bun, pin and add a trinket to dazzle it up! There! It is as easy as Santa knowing you were good this year! The most important tip we can give is… have fun with it!!! It is Christmas after all!

Round face? Long face? What hairstyle should I get?
How do you know what hairstyle fits the shape of your face? This is a conversation heard in our salon very often. We all have features we like and don’t like so much.. The trick is we want to highlight and draw attention to our best features and down play our less loved features. Our experts here at Diviniti Salon in Matthews understand this need we have and are experienced to determine what would enchance our facial features the best. Here are a couple of tips from the ladies:
Long hair lenghens the roundness of the face. Straight hair can work but natural wavy, scrunched with some volume works best. Another tip for round faces is bangs to the side. Bangs seem to cut the shape of the face to minimize roundness. The hairstyles to avoid is the bob. It will make a round face seem rounder.
There is not much difference between square and round faces when it comes to hairstyles that enhance the shape. Long hairstyles with wavy, bouncy curls break up square and round shaped face. The style to avoid would be blunt layers that start at the chin. This will draw attention to the jaw bone area and will cause focus on the square line on the face.
Shorter layers would help break up the length of a oval face.. If you like your cheek bones start your layers there and work your way down. You can even start layering at your lips but much lower than that will draw your eyes length ways and make your face seem longer. Once again some wavy curls gives volume on the sides. The hairstyle to avoid would be long straight hair.
Call our expert stylist for a consultation for more information. We are looking forward to hearing from you soon! Don’t hesitate!! Your hair is worth it!
