2020 – The Year of Low Maintenance

2020 – The Year of Low Maintenance

If there was anything that became a necessity in 2020, it was the need for low maintenance hair. With the hurdles of Fort Lauderdale Hair Salons having been closed for a few months, money being tight for those who have experienced loss of jobs, and the overall fear of COVID – the need for low maintenance cuts and colors have been at an all time high. A lot of us had switched over to the horrible box dye or just let our roots and hair grow out tremendously during those quarantined months, but a big change that we saw happen during these times was the big chop – short low maintenance hair! The pixie cut is back in! Super short hair can be one of the most low maintenance cuts out there, for most people it requires just a little product or the occasional 5 min blow out, depending on the look you are going for. The pixie can come in multiple different styles: short spikes, tapered, the androgynous boy cut, chic artistic, edgy and eccentric, and the long bob like pixie – just to name a few. Despite what you might think, pixies can look great on almost every face shape, depending on the type of pixie you are looking for. The pixie could also elongate your neck giving you a thinner look and not held down by lots of hair. Some other hairstyles that your Beauty Salon Fort Lauderdale stylist might suggest, short layers for those looking to enhance curls and waves, long one length cuts (which works on all hair types and textures), retro 70’s bangs (which don’t require the constant up keep of trimming), and chin length bobs or lobs for those who don’t want to go too short (another great style thats works with all hair types). If you are looking to spruce up your hair color this year, a few options for low maintenance could include: a sun kissed balayage, balayage being great for low maintenance as it is painted onto your hair from mid lengths and not to the root (which requires frequent touch ups), or similar tot hat the dark rooted blonde. Dark rooted blondes offers the perfect hybrid of blonde and brunette hair, and unlike traditional balayage or blond-brunette looks, this embraces the dark roots and adds another level of dimensions. For someone looking for something playful and fun, Lilac hair could be an option for you! This color does not require the constant upkeep, and here at Hello Beautiful Salon (Best Beauty Salon Fort Lauderdale) we highly recommend Amika’s Fadeblock to hold onto the colored hair during your shampooing. Interested in color without full color commitment? Add some pink to a dip-dyed look. Something bold yet leaving most of your hair natural. Another low maintenance option you might be looking into is Hair Extensions Fort Lauderdale. As we have discussed previously in our Extension series, Tape in extensions are very low maintenance way to make your hair fuller and longer. These extensions are lightweight, doesn’t damage your hair, and can last about 4 to 6 months with maintenance appointments for upkeep every 6 weeks (also depending on how fast your hair grows). Tape in extensions are great for those looking for longer more voluminous hair without having to commit to them long-term extensions if you don’t want to. Easy to apply and remove (as well as reuse), and look so completely natural because of how they lay almost completely against your head. Another benefit is the time it takes, unlike most extensions which can take up to several hours, tape ins can be done as little as 30 to 45 minutes (on some occasions depending on your hair). Looking for some more options for low maintenance hairstyles?
