Rise, Shine & Slay

Making back to school mornings a breeze
Every minute counts in the morning, especially when you’re balancing all that your daily routine entails! Make sure you (or your little ones) make it to school before the morning bell by cutting out the extra time spent styling your hair. Check out these tips to help make back to school mornings a breeze!
Tangle-Free-Mornings
Tangle Free Mornings
A good detangler can be a lifesaver for those stubborn knots and tangles. If washing hair the night before, a detangler works great to leave hair more manageable in the morning. Plus it won’t leave your hair feeling greasy or weighed-down. Get up and go! We love MONAT Junior Gentle Detangler.
Go-Heatless
Go Heatless
Ditch the heat styling tools and go heatless instead. With the help of a few styling products, a beautiful braid, sleek ponytail or a twisted top knot bun are stylish alternatives to messing with straighteners and curling irons in the a.m. Click here to watch a killer Twisted Top Knot come to life!
Add-Your-Favorite-Accessories
Add Your Favorite Accessories
If you’re keeping things simple with a quick ponytail or your go-to side part in the wee morning hours, why not add some extra style by incorporating some of your favorite accessories? Try a decorative headband to top off your pony and finish the look. Or you can’t go wrong with adding some trendy barrettes with a little bling to glam up a simple side part.

Make a Statement This Fall

Fall into the season with a new pop of color
Cooler weather, outdoor festivals and pumpkin spice…all this and more make fall one of our fave seasons! Autumn is also the perfect season to embrace the power of change. All the brown and red hues are an ideal backdrop for a new do!
You can go for a minor change like highlights or lowlights—or make a bold statement with an overall color change. Whichever route you choose, let your new color be your best accessory this season!
Face-Framing-Highlights
Face Framing Highlights
Many of us want to go darker as soon as fall rolls around. While there’s certainly nothing wrong with that, going just a tad lighter can really make your hair pop. And going brunette with face-framing highlights are just thing for that! First, you’ll want a very rich, brunette base before applying your highlight. Next, you’ll want to paint your lighter highlights around your face for the pop and glow effect you’re seeking. It brings the right amount attention to your face and is a fun way to lighten up your fall look without going all-in on a brighter style!
Chocolate-Brown
Chocolate Brown
Cinnamon-flavored treats and scents are the first to come to mind when thinking about fall, but when it comes to your locks, we think you should consider chocolate. Insert yum here! Choosing a rich, chocolate brown shade is great if you’re looking to go a bit darker without dipping your locks all the way into the dark end of the color pool. Chocolate brown will also offer you a vibrant fall glow you can complement with the right shade of bronze makeup. Give it a shot!
Cherry-Red-Ombre
Cherry Red Ombre
Ombre has been among the hottest trends the past few years. We think it’s only fitting for you to combine this hot trend with a hot new look and color! Red is always a striking look, and you’ll have one of the season’s most eye-catching styles with this look! Warm and fun, you can complement your cherry bomb ombre hair with a variety of makeup techniques and outfits!
Be sure to share your new Fall colors on social #MONATstyle.

Get Your Hair Fall Ready

Post-Summer Hair Repair Starts Now!
It’s time to get fab for fall!
Let’s face it, not matter how much you may think you catered to your hair over the sweltering summer days spent in the sun, sand, and sea—the season probably still did a number on your hair. Now that fall is officially on its way, it’s time to do some damage control to ensure you step into the new season with healthy, beautiful locks.

Snip Snip Snip
Shed your summer ends with a trim! Not only will this remove any split ends and damage that may have crept up over the last few months, but it will encourage growth and look nice and crisp. Plus, who doesn’t love the feel of a fresh cut?

Heavenly-Hydrating-Masque-with-REJUVENIE-S™_Blog_September_5_2019

Hydrate Like a Champ
Feeling thirsty? Your hair probably is. It’s time to quench your hair’s thirst with a solid hydrating mask designed to correct dry, dull, lifeless hair. A good hydration masque is a must for those broken, brittle tresses. Using one a few times a week will provide a much needed moisture surge. We love the Heavenly Hydrating Masque With REJUVENIQE S™.

Add-a-Pop-of-Color

Add a Pop of Color
Ginger, Caramel Gold, Toffee and Chestnut. No, we’re not talking about our favorite flavors of cheat day dessert. We’re talking cool colors for fall! There’s nothing quite like rocking a brand new color to welcome a brand new season. If you’re planning on adding a pop of color, be sure your hair is properly prepped to avoid any damage. Try a Clarifying Shampoo to wash away any impurities or buildup. Just be sure to wash your hair 12 to 24 hours before your color. This way, your hair will be clean, but will also keep some oil in your scalp to create a protective barrier against staining or possible irritation.

She Got it From Her Mama

Celebrating Stylish Mothers & Daughters
There’s nothing like the relationship between a mother and daughter.
In many cases, a mother is a daughter’s first best friend and confidant. That close relationship often carries on into adulthood where mothers and daughters alike share secrets, interests and even style tips! We decided to take a look some of our favorite stylish mother-daughter power couples.
Goldie-Hawn-and-Kate-Hudson
Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson
Do blondes have more fun? This mother-daughter duo sure makes us feel like there’s truth to that saying. Goldie Hawn has been one of America’s sweethearts since the late 60s, and her star shined brightly as a comedic actress and fashionista for more than three decades. Fittingly, she passed the torch to her own equally talented and stunning daughter, Kate Hudson. Whether it’s in comedies or red-carpet appearances, this pair oozes an incomparable combination of charm, class and style. Together, they’re really America’s stylish sweethearts.
Lisa-Bonet-and-Zoe-Kravitz
Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz
Lisa Bonet first graced television screens on in the mid-80s and quickly became one of America’s brightest young stars. In addition to her talent, Lisa had a rare combination of girl-next-door charm and free-spirited Bohemian style. This cocktail of attributes even caught the eye of a rockstar by the name of Lenny Kravitz who would go on to have a daughter with her. Girl-next-door charm coupled with free-spirited style runs strongly in their bloodline because Zoe inherited every bit of what makes Lisa one of our faves.
Blythe-Danner-&-Gwyneth-Paltrow
Blythe Danner & Gwyneth Paltrow
Whether she’s graced Broadway stages or the silver screen, Blythe Danner has always embodied a spirit of elegance. Blythe has been a fixture in acting, class and culture since the late-60s when her career got its start in Broadway. She transitioned to television and the big screen in the 70s and has been a mainstay ever since. Her daughter Gwyneth Paltrow not only inherited her lovely blonde locks and acting talent. She’s also as effortlessly elegance and brings that gravitas to every film she’s in as well.
Jada-Pinkett-Smith-and-Willow-Smith
Jada Pinkett-Smith and Willow Smith
Jada Pinkett-Smith’s career took off in the early 90s, and it seems like each of her roles is a reminder that women can be strong and beautiful. Jada embodies beauty without being overly delicate. Beauty can be rough around the edges and it’s just fine if you like your edges rough. Willow Smith is not only a spitting image of Jada, she brings her own edge to her looks and style. Whether she’s whipping her dreadlocks back and forth or shaving her head, Willow owns the beauty of her rough edges.

Every Man For Himself

Showcase Your Style on National Men’s Grooming Day
It used to almost be taboo for men to take pride in their appearance. But things sure have changed! Not only are more men making time for self-care, many male celebs are trendsetters for modern style, fashion and grooming. Tomorrow is National Men’s Grooming Day, and we thought this was an ideal time to celebrate some of our fave male celebs who set the standard every day. Of course, we’ll also offer some tips for the men in your life as well.
Style-it-Like-Beckham
Style it Like Beckham
While David Beckham was establishing himself as a soccer superstar, he was also embracing his status as a fashion icon. The 44-year-old ex-footballer, now retired, has maintained his place as one of the world’s best-groomed men. For Beckham, it all starts with his willingness to try new things with his hair. You’ve probably seen him sporting everything from brush ups, pompadours and comb overs. While a great hairstylist is important in achieving these looks, they also require a commitment to styling yourself every day. And for that, you need a good styling clay.
Your-Mane-Man
Your Mane Man
Beards are a mark of masculinity and no one sports a better one than Jason Momoa! Whether he’s leading the Dothraki in Game of Thrones or playing the King of the Seven Seas in Aquaman, Jason’s signature feature continues to gain notoriety. Few people are more closely associated with a specific feature than Jason is with his beard. What makes it so special? It’s more than just the rugged look his manly mane offers. His beard is always well-kept, healthy and shiny. We’re certain a good beard oil is part of Jason’s daily routine.
Cutting-Close-to-the-Grain
Cutting Close to the Grain
While full beards are a mark of masculinity, few looks are more classic than the close shave. If your man has ever had a classic barbershop straight razor shave, he can speak to how refreshing and relaxing of an experience it is. But it’s more than just the feeling of renewal that makes these shaves so popular. They also leave your face feeling soft and smooth for days. It’s one of those things men wish they could recreate multiple times per week—rather than a few times per month. Henry Cavill, star of Man of Steel, is known for his always clean cut, coiffed look. We’re certain he uses the best razors he can find, as well as a cream shave meant to sooth the skin with each use.
Tend-to-the-Skin-You’re-In
Tend to the Skin You’re In
There’s a lot a guy can do to ensure he looks his best, but good looks begin with great skin. Ladies, you can attest to this! Whether the man in your life shaves everyday or prefers three-day stubble, a good aftershave to prevent razor bumps and moisturizing will keep him looking handsome and youthful. Few men offer better evidence of that than John Stamos. Every time we see John it looks like he just wandered off the set of Full House. Like many men, John prefers a 3 o’clock shadow and stubble along his chiseled jawline. A good aftershave and moisturizer is definitely a component of his grooming routine.

Psst…You’ve Been Washing Your Hair Wrong

Get the Scoop on Getting it Right
We regret to inform you that you’ve been washing your hair wrong.
Ok, well maybe not completely wrong! But did you know that there is a cool little technique called the Reverse Care Method that works for anyone looking to repair damage?
Let’s face it, between coloring, heat styling, over processing and more, we can put our hair though some pretty serious war zone activity. This snazzy technique is a great way to switch up your daily hair care routine for some stellar results and gorgeous, healthier-looking hair.
So What is the Reverse Care Method?
The Reverse Care Method is pretty much as simple as it sounds. You start with your conditioner and then use your shampoo second. Nice and simple. We like that!
Reasons to Put it in Reverse
If you are a fan of styling products (who isn’t?) any clogged hair follicles or product build-up will head for the hills using this method. Giving your shampoo and conditioning the ol’ switch-a-roo may help you to achieve better results overall than the traditional shampoo then condition.
Applying conditioner first will create a protective film over your hair. Don’t doubt the power of that protective film either…because it’s keeping your locks safe from damage and split ends. It also works to prime your hair before you cleanse, allowing shampoo to distribute more evenly. You’ll notice soft, silky hair with plenty of bounce.

RESTRUCTURING-HAIR-CARE-COLLECTION_blog_july_25_2019

The Reverse Care Method can also help with lack of volume, dryness, frizz, or damaged hair. It going to nourish your hair without flattening it—a nice little bonus for fine hair. We love the Restructuring Collection for optimum results using this method.
Take a Look
Check out the Reverse Care Method in action below, which highlights the use of conditioning first.

Advice From our Expert!

Three Ways to Improve Your Hair Health
Strong. Shiny. Healthy.
The hair of your dreams can be brought to life with a few simple adjustments to your daily routine!
For some expert advice on the best to-dos for improved hair health, we reached out to Laura Dale, our resident haircare expert and MONAT Director of Product Education. Read on to learn how to get and keep your hair health in-check!
Keep-It-Natural
Keep It Natural
Naturally based products are a great way to give your hair the proper TLC it desires, without the added yuck of harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients. By opting for these types of hair products, you are investing in both an eco-friendly market, as well as yourself! Laura shared some of the benefits of choosing naturally based hair care products.
“Naturally based ingredients provide amazing results! Products infused with plants and essential oils are rich in omega fatty acids, antioxidants and nutrients that are highly compatible with your skin and hair. As a result, your hair looks healthier instantly with long-lasting shine, all without using harmful silicones that build up in your hair.”
Decisions,-Decisions!-Choosing-the-Best-Shampoo-&-Conditioner
Decisions, Decisions! Choosing the Best Shampoo & Conditioner
Choosing a shampoo and conditioner can be overwhelming—if you don’t know what to look for! Consider this…every head of hair has different needs, so you’ll want to pinpoint yours before you choose.
Maybe you need hydration or volume. Or maybe some strength or color care is knocking at your door. Laura explained a few reasons why choosing the right cleaning and conditioning duo makes a big difference in the overall health and appearance of your hair!
“Everyone’s hair is unique. Finding the right shampoo and conditioner that works for you is the key to unlocking your hair health. MONAT offers a variety of Systems and Duos which are great for lots of hair types. But many people also create their own Systems or pairings for Duos that work for them. For example, if you have color treated hair, you’d want a moisturizing rinse-out conditioner. But if your hair is also curly and prone to breakage, you may want to pair it with a volumizing shampoo.”
Healthier-Hair-From-the-Inside-Out
Healthier Hair From the Inside Out
If your mom’s voice echoing the reminder “You are what you eat!” is lingering in your mind…well, she was right! Your hair’s beauty, strength and shine starts from within. A diet full of healthy fats, proteins and vitamins is the highway to healthy hair. Laura shares some of the best go-to eats to keep your locks supercharged!
“You are what you eat! That saying applies to your hair as much as your body. Maintaining a balanced diet including eggs ꟷwhich are a great source of protein and biotinꟷ and quality seafood like salmon will enrich your hair. If you’re interested in vegan options, berries, avocados and sweet potatoes should be a staple of your diet.”
