Heat Protection using Style Sexy Hair®
I am very excited about the new launch of our Style Sexy Hair line of products. This line contains some great products that were in our Short Sexy Hair line, along with several new additions that are truly amazing. In addition, we recently introduced part 2 of the Style Sexy Hair line launch that includes our new 450 degree thermal protectant line. These products are hairstylist tested and are a must have when using heat tools to provide maximum results.
For this blog, I would like to give you tips on how to prepare the hair before using hot tools and provide examples on how to do it with our Style Sexy Hair line. Whether it’s straightening or curling, before the iron touches the hair it should be properly prepared. From shampooing, conditioning and drying to the desired results, there are ways to insure achieving the healthiest results possible by following these easy steps.
Step 2: Apply a mousse like Style Sexy Hair Blow It Upand work throughout hair thoroughly. If hair is damaged or super dry, use several drops of Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Renewal to insure maximum moisture as well as speed up the blow dry time.
Step 3: Control the blow dry! What I mean by this is to make sure at all times that the direction of the blow dryer is always from scalp to ends. This will begin the process of smoothing the cuticle to reduce frizz. When 80% dry, part into sections that are no wider than the round brush you intend to use and continue to stroke the hair from scalp always toward the ends. Try to turn the brush as much as possible when controlling the ends as the bristles on the brush aid in helping the cuticle to lay flatter to the hairshaft. The idea behind this technique is that you are not relying on the heat of the iron to burn it flat. Round brushing is a less aggressive form of achieving the same results; the stroking motion will insure maximum preparation for the heat tool you will be using next on your hair.
Step 4: Curl or flatten as desired making sure to use a thermal protectant such as Style Sexy Hair 450 Protect. This spray will provide the protection needed against extreme heat as well as control the hair without a crunch feel. If a stronger hold is required, use Healthy Sexy Hair Soya Want Flat Hair spray or our Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable. All of these products are to be sprayed lightly on both sides of the section of hair that is going to be ironed for best benefits. Finish design with Style Sexy Hair Molding Paste or Style Sexy Spray Clay if extra definition is desired.
Step 5: Show off your Sexy Style by posting it on Instagram and tagging it #bighairisbetter!

DIY- Ultra Fab Curls by Sexy Hair® Artist Meaghan
1. How long have you been a Stylist for Sexy Hair?
2 ½ years. Master Artist Steven Melito inspired and helped guide me to be a part of the Sexy Hair team. At first I was really attracted to the brand’s rock star attitude, but once I learned more about the company I knew it would be a perfect fit for me.
2. Besides Ultra Fab Curls, what other looks are your specialties?
I absolutely LOVE upstyling whether its bridal, prom or avant gard looks. In fact, I’m already booked for next year’s prom season.
3.This fall was your 2nd time doing hair at the Charlotte Ronson show for NY Fashion Week. What’s the most exciting part about working a runway show?
Definitely the pressure is the most exciting part! The hustle and bustle of working on 25 models in such a short amount of time, and getting to see the end result on stage is the most amazing and rewarding feeling ever!
4. What’s the craziest hairstyle you ever had?
Well my hair right now is pretty crazy, I have Cruella Devil hair. When I was 18 though I shaved my head in the back into a bunch of crazy designs and colored it flaming hot pink and purple! It was insane; I lost my mind for a hot minute. I have pictures but I try to hide them.
5. What’s your “go-to” Sexy Hair product?
Healthy Sexy Hair Soy Touchable Hairspray, it’s buildable and you can do so many things with it unlike typical hairsprays. I do a lot of photo-shoots and music videos and I love the way it gives hair shine on camera while conditioning. When upstyling you can mold the hair rather than having it be stiff. It’s definitely the best product known to man!
6. If you could do any celebrity’s hair, who would it be and why?
Lady Gaga, she definitely has no boundaries! She is someone who is creative and so out there like myself. Her wigs are amazing and I’m definitely all about using synthetic hair pieces! She is my biggest inspiration; it would be an honor to work with her one day.
7. What are some of your favorite trends in hair that you’re seeing right now?
Right now I’m really all about the sea-punk mermaid pastel hair. Also on the opposite end, the extremely natural super-soft ombre look is still one of my favorite trends. In this economy it’s great for the person who doesn’t want to get their hair done all the time, it’s perfect!
