Reasons Why Your Hair is Having a Bad Day

By | Hair Care | No Comments

keratin treatments boca ratonThere are many factors our hair has a bad day from time to time. Where you live, what you eat and your lifestyle can all play a part of your hair getting out of control. We’ve all been there no matter what the cut, style, straight, curly, color or natural aspects are of our beautiful locks. Everyone is entitled to a bad hair day. If you’re finding yourself weeping or whining in front of your mirror, then you’ll want to let Salon Sora come to your rescue. Before wearing a ponytail or tucking under a baseball cap, read this blog.

Check your diet for a reason why your hair is reacting in an awkward manner. Many people don’t realize things like alcohol, too much greasy food or even gluten can play a huge part of how your hair may react. From the follicles to the ends your hair need to have the proper nutrients and care to be healthy, grow properly and look gorgeous 24/7. Medication is also another problem that can cause your hair to be out of control. If you’ve ever been pregnant before, and took pre-natal pills, you might recall how well your hair and nails grew. Ask your doctor or physician if your current diet or meds are causing you to have a lack of the proper nutrients.

Another reason for bad hair days is the weather. If you live in a place like South Florida, you are already used to this as a part of normal and daily living. Solutions could be cutting your hair into a shorter more manageable style to wearing it in a different way. The bun, the pony and the braid can be your best buddy if your hair is longer. Bobby pins and other hair accoutrements will make life easier if you’re in a hurry.

Your shampoo may be wrong for you. Certain shampoos and conditioners can make life unbearable if they’re not right for the texture of your hair. Cheap shampoos can contain a lot of bad chemicals and products like alcohol which can be drying. You don’t necessarily need suds to be clean and shampoos containing sulfates can seem like the hair isn’t getting clean when on the contrary it is.

One last point to make is you hair may be in desperate need of a new hair cut. While the hair grows, it can also change in texture, and the way it lays on the head. Let your stylist know if there have been any significant changes.

Holiday Nails by Salon Sora for 2016

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

This year if you’re looking to be sexy from your head down to your toes, Salon Sora can help you put your finger on just the right seasonal polish and nail art that will help you go from super to super-sexy in 2.5 minutes! Let’s point to the obvious, shall we?Nail salon boca raton fl

First, let’s say clean and healthy nails are in style no matter what season it is. A French or American manicure never seems to be old-school. However, add something chic to your white tips like glitter or gold to accent the already super-girl handle.

Gold foil designs over shades of green and red can tip things off when it comes to nail art. Ask your manicurist what his/her favorite design is this year, and we’re sure they’ll give you a dynamite and decorative pattern that will keep your hands from being hidden inside your pocket.

Geometric patterns are not only contemporary, but they’re also very popular throughout the fashion magazines. Bring in the look if you find something you admire and we’ll see if we can’t copy it. Be sure to browse through Pinterest to get a different perspective.

When you live in a place such as Southern Florida, you’ll find it’s not appropriate table manners to have dirty, dingy nails. Try a new shade of blue or a pearly pink to brighten up your fingertips even when you’re not sporting a tan.

If you’re into cute, think about adding a few snowflakes or some contemporary lace designs. This type of nail art is perfect for both child and adult and are ideal for the 2016 to 2017 holidays.

Black and Gold is a hot commodity for classic nail techniques. We’ve seen a lot of faded techniques as well. More nail technicians are focusing on the half-moons and decorating the nail beds from the cuticle up to the tip. Although this is opposite of what is typically requested, it’s a unique way of showing off those sexy nails.

Trying something new is half the fun. Be sure to look for a design or technique that will match your holiday gowns or outfit. Our manicurists will be happy to suggest the look that right for the dress or wardrobe. The best part is when you hear the compliments on how pretty your hands are for this year’s big celebrations.

I must admit when I first heard of this incredible nail technique, I assumed it was something that happens to your polish as a defect.

Manicures for the Boca’s Professional Women

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

Nails for the Professional Woman

When it comes to your hands you may think that no one notices but your fingernails say a lot about who you are as a person. With all of the creative nail designs and shapes that we have today a can sometimes be a challenge in deciding what to ask your manicurist for. When it comes to professional women, however, more than self-expression meets the eye. But the real question is who’s eyes?

Without a doubt the way you groom your nails can give off a particular message which in some cases may not help you climb up the corporate ladder. Just because the trend may be a particular shape or a custom polish may not necessarily be the best choice. But what is acceptable and what you’re willing to live with maybe two different things.

First, let’s look at the different types of nail shapes for you to consider.

Kylie Jenner may have kicked off the ‘stiletto’ which is nothing new. You may remember your grandmother having long pointed nails. While those are great for giving a back scratch, they may not be what your boss is looking for. Depending on the line of work that you do this retro sharp nail shape may give off the wrong message.

Despite their stunning, the ‘coffin’ shape may be more acceptable on people like Barbra Streisand and not the vice president of marketing. The other issue is the length of your nails. The coffin shape tends to be a longer style compared to the square or round. If you are someone who spends multiple hours on the keyboard, you may want to consider a shorter version.

The most popular nail shapes would be square, oval, round and ‘squoval’ which is a hybrid between square and oval. The difference would be rounded edges as opposed to sharp and precise.

Another elegant shape to consider is that of ‘almond’ which tends to be a long in length and tapers off towards the tip but is rounded. Whichever shape you decide to keep in mind that activities such as typing, dialing a phone and opening boxes tend to wear on the shape in a short period of time. That holds true even with acrylic nails.

Now let’s discuss color. Color trends will come and go. While that is safe to say selecting a color that is neutral and subdued is your safest bet. French and American manicures are always safe and look elegant no matter what’s trending.

Stay away from bright colors, patterns, polka dots and weird color schematics. That is, unless your corporate officers will not scoff at your selection. It’s safe to say clean, conservative nails are best for professional women.

The dress code may be more liberal in fields such as art, fashion, retail, etc. but in verticals that are more conservative make sure that your choice of nail design proceeds.

Another thing to note is to make sure that your nails are always well manicured and clean. People will notice when your nail polish is chipped or peeling. They will also notice when your cuticles are dry and scaly. A biweekly visit to your manicurist will ensure that your nails are always looking their best.

Of course, these are a few suggestions for you to consider prior to your visit with your manicurist. However, only you know what’s best for the goals you’re trying to achieve.
