That J-Lo Glow
Jennifer Lopez reigned with a very detailed braided bun that was pinned just right to reveal her stunning backless Valentino ball gown. This updo (and gown) gave us all the feels as Ms. Lopez made her way down the red carpet.

Zoey Deutch opted for an uber sexy and completely chic parted style while donning a stunning canary Fendi jumpsuit. Her smoothed, slick hairstyle perfectly accented her above-the-shoulder locks.

Reset Your Hair This New Year

Give your locks a fresh start in 2020!
You’ve made it into 2020 looking and feeling incredible! With the holidays locked-in as a complete whirlwind of family, friends, parties and maybe even some mistletoe moments, it’s time to recharge and reset your day-to-day routines to ensure a prosperous and healthy new year.
A great way to start is from the top by getting your hair in its best shape ever! Here are some great ways to reset your hair for the new year.

Say-Goodbye-to-Damage_2

Say Goodbye to Damage
Damaged hair is sooooo last year! Now is the time to repair, strengthen and rebuild your locks. To do this, choose products that offer restructuring action to help re-build strength from within. We love the Restructuring Hair Care Collection because all four of its products work together as an advanced, high performance program that result in a softer, smoother, shinier, healthier-looking finish.

Unmask-Healthy-Hair

Unmask Healthy Hair
A good mask is great for removing impurities in your hair. We love the Charcoal Gelée Hair Masque, designed with an activated charcoal, which works as a magnet to help remove impurities without stripping or drying the hair.

No-Heat-Zone

No Heat Zone
We know it’s still winter, but keep the heat to the cozy confides of your living room! Giving your hair a break from the heat of styling tools (think blow dryers, flat irons, curling wands) helps your hair breathe and allows damage to lessen. Heat free doesn’t mean you have to miss out on style! Try an Air Dry Cream before styling naturally and let those locks breathe! We love MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Air Dry Cream.

Holiday-Ready Hair

Styles for dinner parties, holiday parties & everything in between!
The holiday season is in full swing! If you’re like most of us, that means you’re hopping between multiple parties and events all month long. While we love few things more than getting dolled up from head to toe to bask in the holiday glow, this can be a lot of work! Especially because coming up with fun, new holiday hair styles can be a bit tough. Don’t worry, though, this is why we’re here! Here are 3 cute styles to carry you through the remainder of the season!
Half-Up-Holiday-Hair
Half Up Holiday Hair
Half up hair styles are a cute way to mix things up for the holidays…plus it’s a SUPER versatile style. Whether you’re headed to dinner or an office party, this look just works! Best of all, this style is easy to create yourself, and all you need is a good flexible-hold hairspray to keep it in place!
Side-Swept-Curls
Side Swept Curls
We love curly styles and side swept curls is one of our FAVOURITE ‘dos! Make this style yours by combing a deep side part into your hair to add fullness and depth to your look. The cooling winter weather can be tough on curls, so you may want to try the new MONAT Super Nourish™ Oil Crème Duo to infuse locks with additional moisture and make this style POP!
Fishtail-Braids
Fishtail Braids
The great thing about braids is they’re always fashionable. But you don’t just want to be fashionable at your next holiday party—you want to standout! A nice fishtail braid is a great way to do that. It’s as cute as it is elegant, and that’s just what we want to be this holiday season.

Halloween Hairdos From Spooky to Sexy

Try These Easy, Halloween-Ready Styles
Costumes get all the attention when Halloween approaches. But whether you’re a Wicked Witch or a Naughty Nurse on Oct. 31, no costume is complete without the right hairstyle! With Halloween creeping up fast, we’ve got just the thing for you. Check out these four Halloween hairstyles sure to complete your costume. No tricks, just treats!
Zombie-Cheerleader_blog
Zombie Cheerleader
While “sexier” costumes have increasingly grown in popularity, we still think there’s a place for scarier looks…while still keeping things cute! This zombie cheerleader look is a perfect example of that. It’s scary, creative, and requires the right TLC on your locks to create pin curls for that perfect “undead” look!
The-Marilyn_blog
The Marilyn
Halloween is an opportunity to pay homage to icons of pop culture! Few women are more iconic than Marilyn Monroe. Marilyn captured eyes and hearts with her confidence, vigor and always-perfect hair. The Marilyn Monroe is timeless, so you could probably wear it any time of year. But it’s sure to make you pop this Halloween! Plus, all you need for this look is rollers (applied to wet hair) to get the wavy look and a comb to part your hair. Hold your style in place with a flexible hairspray. We love MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Strong Flexi-Hold Hairspray with REJUVENIQE™ to keep things in place with long-lasting hold.
Harley-Quinn_blog
Harley Quinn
Harley Quinn has enjoyed a surge in popularity (especially around Halloween) due to the recent films in which the character has been featured. Spunky and sarcastic with a heavy sprinkle of dangerous, Harley Quinn is the perfect choice for those seeking edgier costumes. Pigtails and a good dry shampoo like MONAT STUDIO ONE™ THE CHAMP™ Conditioning Dry Shampoo are all you need to achieve the ideal second-day hair to properly rep the Harley Quinn.
Greek-Goddess_blog
Greek Goddess
Ancient Greece is known for many things, their intricate braided hairstyles and pantheon of gods among them. How about bringing both of those together this Halloween? Choosing the right braid and dress combination is an easy way to create an eye-popping costume. Plus, with so many Greek goddesses like Artemis to Aphrodite, there are plenty of options from which to choose when people ask who you’re dressed as!

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 colour
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 colour change. Whichever route you choose, let your new colour 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-flavoured 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 colour 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 colour! 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!

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 Colour
Ginger, Caramel Gold, Toffee and Chestnut. No, we’re not talking about our favourite flavours of cheat- day dessert. We’re talking cool colours for fall! There’s nothing quite like rocking a brand new colour to welcome a brand new season. If you’re planning on adding a pop of colour, 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 colour. 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.

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 colouring, 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.
