Hair Salon Tips and Tricks: How To Save Your Blowout

Going to your favorite Miami Beach salon and getting a blowout doesn’t have to end with doing the “how do I keep my hair perfect for the next few days” routine of avoiding water, sweat and frizz at all costs.

Saving that just-left-the-salon look isn’t hard, with a few tips and tricks you can keep your blowout looking great for several days after you leave the stylists chair.

“You can keep a blowout looking salon fresh for three days after you leave the salon,” said Me Day Spa stylist, Todd Bertenshaw. “The only thing off limits is completely wetting your hair but you can still shower, workout, and do your normal routine.”

Here are Todd’s top three tips to save your blowout:

  • Use a shower cap in the shower – they are available at any drugstore and keep even a small amount of moisture from getting on your hair.
  • Invest in a dry shampoo – these come in spray, powder and even liquid forms. They absorb oil at the roots and keep the hair at the crown looking fresh.
  • Use a flat iron to smooth stray hairs and backcomb hair around the crown at the roots when it falls flat.

Dr. Wigoda’s Red Carpet Mondays

Did Debra Messing Get Botox? Dr. Wigoda Compares  “The Women” Cast

Last weekend the most famous women in Hollywood turned out for the premiere of “The Women.” The all-star cast includes: Meg Ryan, Eva Mendes, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Annette Bening, Debra Messing, Bette Midler, and Candice Bergen.

In a cast of such gorgeous women, we can only wonder…who’s had a little “help” in the cosmetic surgery department lately?
Only on the South Florida Beauty Blog will you find direct commentary on the stars latest red carpet looks. This week, Dr. Wigoda weighs in on Debra Messing and Annette Bening.

“I think Debra Messing looks terrific in the photo. She has very few wrinkles in the forehead, glabella, and crows feet area. I would guess that she gets botox for that. Her skin also has a very smooth complexion.”

“While Annette Bening is a beautiful woman, there is no question she looks at least 10 years older than Debra. She also appears to be treated with botox in the upper face but is showing more signs of aging around the eyes and cheek area. There are a lot of rhytids in the cheek when she smiles, which to me suggests some degree of skin laxity. I would recommend a facelift to clear up this imperfection. However, Bening’s neck is the area that reveals her age the most. She appears
to have obvious sun damage as well as platysma muscle bands. Again, overall she is a very attractive woman, but if she came to see me, these would be the areas I would address with her.”

Me Day Spa Updates The French Manicure – As seen in VOGUE

Long, shiny white talons are OUT.

Square, white-tipped French manicures are a holdover from the nineties, as far as any South Beach
manicurist will attest to.

Miami Beach’s Me Day Spa is updating the classic French manicure with a South Florida twist – using pastel peaches, opaque pinks, and iridescent whites to create a soft and sophisticated look. By applying a soft pink or peach to the nail and an ivory or iridescent white to the tip, clients still get the French style without looking dated.

“Clients are coming to us looking for a practical, yet glamorous nail style that they can wear for a variety of occasions,” said Sonia Fardales, Salon Manager for Me Day Spa. “The updated French manicure is a modern twist on beautiful classic.”
