Fall Hair Trends

Fall Hair 2019

Color Trends

.

Fall weather is in full effect. We’ve switched our iced coffees for the Philly favorite “PSL”, so why not do the same with your hair? The trends for this season will be shying away from all the icy colors and transitioning into fall with some warmer, darker tones. Think of all the colorful leaves falling on the ground with tones of gold, brown and red. Icy blonde girls will want to go for a more rooted and golden blonde color. Dark Blonde / light brunettes can deepen their tone to add more shine and warmth. You’ll be seeing more rich and chocolaty tones on Brunettes. Red Heads will pop with copper dimension or keep it subtle with the “natural” auburn look. Ask your stylist about which hue is best for you or virtually consult with us here.

Sleep and Hair Health

Sleep and Hair Health

Getting the recommended 7-9 hours of quality sleep every night is vital to maintaining a full and healthy head of hair. Sleep is the time our body gets to repair and better itself – and it does this through countless processes that occur during the different sleep cycles. These numerous sleep cycles promote the stem cell activity that generates the epithelial cells required for hair growth. Not only is sleep necessary for the protein synthesis of your hair, it is also the time our body releases numerous hormones that are responsible for maintaining healthy locks. Hair growth is regulated by hormones and these hormones affect how much hair grows, how long it grows for, and type of hair that grows. Not receiving the proper amount of sleep will affect your production of growth hormone and other hormones like androgens, which have a direct effect on hair growth.

When trying to improve your hair’s health, it is also important to look at the impact of sleep on your stress levels. There is increasing evidence that suggests that stress negatively impacts the hair follicle and growth cycle, which consequently leads to unhealthy hair growth and loss. During deep sleep, your brain produces chemicals that order your body to stop production of stress hormones. And, when you don’t receive the proper amount of quality sleep, your body boosts its production of these stress hormones. The result is a vicious cycle of sleep loss and stress that causes the growth of unhealthy hair as well as hair loss.

Improve Sleep and Rejuvenate Your Locks

Unfortunately, getting a good night’s sleep is something most of us struggle with. Here are a few tips to help you get a full and restful sleep every night:

● Try aromatherapy: Essential oils like chamomile, lavender, and ylang-ylang have a calming effect on the mind and body. Add a few drops of the oils to a diffuser and, while in bed, focus your mind on the feelings of relaxation that are induced.

● Begin a bedtime ritual: Before bedtime, do something ritualistic that relaxes you. Wrap up in some blankets with a hot cup of herbal tea and a good book or soak in a bath of Epsom salts and lavender oil. Whichever relaxing ritual you choose, do it every night at the same time before bed and your body will become programmed for sleep!

● Turn of blue-light emitting electronics: The blue-light emitted by electronics causes your brain to resist a state of restfulness. It’s best to turn off all electronic devices 1 hour before bedtime to promote relaxation and ready your brain for sleep.

We all need to sleep, so why wouldn’t you make the most out of your sleep time by ensuring it improves your physical and mental health? Not receiving enough sleep will cause you to suffer from hormone imbalances and increased stress levels that cause an overall degradation of your health and beauty. Whether you want to rejuvenate your lackluster locks, stifle hair loss, or simply protect your hair for the future, receiving a good night’s sleep may be the “miracle” that you’ve been searching for.

Architeqt Summer Trends 2018

The Summer 2018 Hairstyle Trends to Know About Before You Hit the Salon

 

‘Tis the season when we all start dreaming of drastic changes for our hair, mostly because Philadelphia’s summer heat and humidity can cause us all to start wondering if we could pull of an Amber Rose look. But before you go chopping off all your tresses, take note of the summer 2018 hairstyle trends Architeqt Salon owner and stylist Alexey Kats and stylists Sequoya Yeagle and Alba Karabina are seeing and doing behind the chair.

 

Before we dive into the more specific hairstyle trends for summer, a few across-the-board trends and tips to note: First off, natural textures rather, than big blown-out Kardashian-like ‘dos—which can feel like a pipe dream to maintain during a heatwave—are in, regardless of age. So no need to overheat under a blow-dryer at home, only to have your hair frizz up once you head out the door. Another trend that’s being seen across most styles and age groups is blunt cuts, rather than choppy layers. And secondly, while you may see fringe-like bangs infiltrating your Instagram feed, Alexey warns that summer is not—I repeat: NOTthe time to get them: You’ll just end up with hair plastered to your forehead and plenty of regrets.

 

Okay, let’s get to the top hairstyle trends the stylists from Architeqt are seeing for summer 2018.

 

Summer 2018 Hairstyle Trends for 20-somethings

 

Jaw-length bob: The Amelie look is back, y’all. As Alba points out, while this look requires some upkeep maintenance, with trims roughly every six weeks to keep the length just right, the actual styling of this look is veering toward less pin-straight and more textured and tousled, which means it’s possible to maintain with a natural air-dry for some, depending on hair type.

 

Less Fairytale hair color, more natural hues: This is good news for anyone who moans and groans at the time spent in the salon chair to get their locks to a lavender hue. Sequoya says the pastel pinks and blues are out, and embracing more natural hues while embellishing with soft copper balayage is in. This means less time spent in the salon , because frequent upkeep isnt required, and less fading from the sun, pool and ocean.

 

Summer 2018 Hairstyle Trends for 30- and 40-somethings

 

Lob: Lob is short for long bob—so this isn’t your super-duper short ‘do, but rather a shoulder-length take on the shorter style. As Alexey notes, while this style used to often be paired with a voluminous blow-out, now it’s shifting more toward a more laid-back, natural styling. Meaning: Less work for you each morning.

Asymmetrical cuts: As Sequoya points out, asymmetrical cuts—which can range from pixie-length to lobs, and are paired with a deep side part—are having a moment. A nice bonus, along with the versatility in length, is that they provide you with a strong hairstyle without necessarily requiring too much everyday styling on your part, depending on length and texture.

Summer 2018 Hairstyle Trends for 50- and up-somethings

 

Long looks: Surprise! Long hair is no longer a “don’t” as you get older, Alexey says. And the stylists at Architeqt are seeing more and more women embrace longer tresses. Instead of swearing off long hair once you reach a certain age, it’s all about knowing how to make long locks work for your face: The goal with a long style should be to frame your face in a way that gives the illusion of volume added to your face—something we naturally lose as we age.

 

Clavicle-length bob: Yep, there’s a bob trend for every age group! This bob, which lands smack-dab in between the bob and the lob, works to do what we just talked about above: Framing the face to add volume. Again, you’ll want to stay on top of your trim appointments to keep this cut at the perfect length and doing its job.
