The One Thing Girls With Long Hair Should Never Do

April 13, 2016 by Justine Schwartz

You know what they say… “long hair, don’t care.” Well, sometimes us girls with long hair really DO care. For one, we care about our hair being really shiny and pretty and not having split ends or breakage. And we definitely care about our hair looking healthy and not like a stringy mess. Amirite?

Sometimes mo’ hair = mo’ problems, so we sat down with stylist Dayna Goldstein of Ted Gibson to find out the one thing that girls with long hair should never do (if they want to have good hair days, that is.)

Don’t tie your hair back too often and too tight.,” Dayna says. “It can cause the hair shaft to stretch and cause breakage.” Say whaaa?

Instead opt for a nice braid, headband, or a scrunchie (yes, a scrunchie, my secret weapon!). With a scrunchie there is less tension on the hair, opposed to a tight hair elastic.” (Our editors love the Invisibobble for pony tails).

Got it? K, now please enjoy some amazing hair transformations from the team at Ted Gibson:

Good morning and happy #transformationtuesday!!! Holy Hana!!! Take look at this #brunette bombshell!!! When Hana and I had our consultation I discovered she had been coloring her 50% gray hair blue-black (the before picture actually looks lighter than it did in real life) at home for years – EEK! While the #DIY color was fine, it didn't do much for her and it made her overall look a little heavy and unapproachable. I suggested softening up the base and introducing some variation. We had to prelighten the previously colored midlengths and ends. #multitechniques lightening powder with 30 vol did the trick. The hair history was revealed and as a result some areas lifted to a level 6 and others all the way to a 9. After the shampoo we filled the areas that were too light with #Dialight 7.4, rinsed and dried her hair. For her new growth I used #coolcover equal parts 4G and 5G with 20vol. On her mids and ends we used #majirel #mocha shade 6.8 with 30vol (to help lift dark areas a bit more and esure a sheer deposit of tone.) After we shampooed and dried I added some interior highlighting with #majimeches and 30vol. We glossed the #highlights with Dia Light 7.8. The end result? Soft, sexy, approachable #haicolor and a new found confidence for Hana! #lorealpro #lorealprous #tedgibsonadvancedacademy #tedgibsonartisticream #jasoncoloredit #starringmyhair

Its late in the day but happy #transformationtuesday! This is Alisha aka @Allicat1983 who was one of my models for a presentation I did for @8thesalon yesterday. When I met her she had a level 6 new growth with level 9 midlengths and ends that had a lot of horizontal banding. First I used #lorealpro #majirelhighlift Ash+ with 30vol on the new growth and #sunkissedlighteningoil with 20vol through the mid lengths and ends to clarify and brighten. After it processed I shampooed and glossed with #dialight equal parts 9.3 and clear with 9vol. I shampooed and dried her hair. Then I used #multitechniques lightening powder with 20vol and did a frame highlight, pivoting off the center of her front hairline. I also painted a lowlight between the foils with #diarichesse 8.31 and 15vol. When it was done procesing I shampooed and glossed with #dialight 10.32 and 9vol. My friend @suziebond gave her a great haircut. We took Alisha from country girl to red carpet ready! #lorealprous #tedgibsonadvancedacademy #tedgibsonartisticream #bondbeauty #blonde #blond #haicolor #jasoncoloredit #starringmyhair

Happy #transformationtuesday! What do you do when a gorgeous young girl ( @hazelgraye ) comes in for her first time #haircolor experience? Well, knowing less can be more with a first time color, I started with a consultation. By focusing on what a big commitment color can be financially and how much time needs to be spent in the salon, we learned a lot. Hazel was excited to color her hair but didn't want to commit to regular salon visits or spend a ton of cash. I decided to keep it simple, fresh and young. I painted some #highlights around her face and through the interior with #lorealpro #majimeches and 30vol. Then through her midlengths and ends I applied #sunkissedlighteningoil with 30vol. I processed for 15min under heat and then shampooed. The lightener lifted so beautifully I didn't even need a gloss. #lorealprous #blond #blonde #tedgibsonadvancedacademy #tedgibsonartisticteam #jasoncoloredit

Happy #transformationtuesday! Have you ever had a readhead come in whose color has lost its pizzazz? That's what happened here. Even though her colorist hadn't changed the formula the color was not vibrant. In the biz this is called "brown out" – its the fatal flaw in reds. Pulling permanent haircolor through the ends to freshen can actually have an adverse effect on reds. Don't bumb out though – its an easy fix! On the new growth I did #INOA 8.43 in equal parts with 7n and 20vol. Then I used #lorealpro #sunkissedlighteningoil with 30vol to lift off the drab tone. After the color processed I shampooed and towel dried her hair. I followed up with my FAV #dialight 7.40 with 15vol. Voilà! #redhair #redhead #gibsongirlsruletheworld #tedgibsonadvancedacademy #tedgibsonartisticteam #lorealprous #jasoncoloredit

Happy #transformationtuesday!!! Check out this months @modernsalon shoot @tedgibsonbeauty and I did for @lorealprous #profiber. My model @laroseknows came in with level 4 hair. First I did a partial highlight with #blondstudio #majimeches and 30 vol in a halo shape around her entire hailine and then 8 foils pivoting off the front center hairline. Then I painted #diarichesse 4.15 with 9vol and varied it through the midlengths. On the ends I painted #sunkissedlighteningoil with 30vol. I processed for 15minutes under heat. After she was done processing I shampooed and glossed with #dialight 8n with 15vol. For the ultimate protection and shine I finished the service with #profiber. #gibsongirlsruletheworld #tedgibsonadvancedacademy #tedgibsonartisticteam #lorealpro #jasoncoloredit
