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 festive period being 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 programme that results in a softer, smoother, shinier, healthier-looking finish.

Unmask-Healthy-Hair

Unmask Healthy Hair
A good mask is a great weekly treat for your hair. We love Super Moisture Masque with key ingredient REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive as it promotes healthy, lustrous shine by infusing hair with hydrating natural oils, minerals and vitamins.

No-Heat-Zone

No Heat Zone
We know it’s still winter, but keep the heat to the cosy 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. If your hair is naturally wavy, why not try MONAT STUDIO ONE™ Curl Defining Cream before styling naturally and let those locks breathe!

Festive Season Ready Hair

Styles for dinner parties, festive parties & everything in between!
The festive season is in full swing! If you’re like most of us, that means you’re juggling multiple parties and events all month long. While we love nothing more than getting dolled up from head to toe to bask in the festive glow, this can be a lot of work! Especially because coming up with fun, new festive 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 Festive Hair
Half up hair styles are a cute way to mix things up for the festive season…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 parting 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 festive 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 festive 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 31st October, 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 to choose from like Artemis to Aphrodite, there are plenty of options to choose from when people ask who you’re dressed as this year!
Will you be trying one of these styles for Halloween? Share your pics on social with #MONATstyle! We’d love to see them!

Make a Statement This Autumn

Start the Autumn season with a new pop of colour
Cooler weather, outdoor festivals and pumpkin spice…all this and more make autumn 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 autumn 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 the 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 of attention to your face and is a fun way to lighten up your autumn 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 autumn, 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 autumn glow you can complement with the right shade of bronze makeup. Give it a shot!
Cherry-Red-Ombre
Cherry Red Ombre
Ombre has been amongst 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!
Be sure to share your new autumn colours on social #MONATstyle.

Get Your Hair Autumn Ready

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

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 autumn! 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.

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 colour 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 colour treated hair, you’d want a moisturising rinse-out conditioner. But if your hair is also curly and prone to breakage, you may want to pair it with a volumising shampoo.”
Healthier-Hair-From-the-Inside-Out
Healthier Hair From the Inside Out
If your mum’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 —which are a great source of protein and biotin— 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.”
