Springtime signifies change. It’s out-with-the-old and in-with-the-new in terms of fashion, beauty trends, and style attitudes after the winter. It’s the perfect time for salons, spas, and stylists to revamp their current menu offerings and incorporate the best services, treatments, and products for the seasons ahead – and that means Hair Prescriptives® (HPx) treatment and hair care!

Celebrity stylist, trend-setter, and HPx’s creative director, Giannandrea, shares his tips for keeping client’s hair looking its very best in the months to come and how to help them upgrade their current Spring hair routine:

“Let’s start with a new shampoo and conditioner for cleansing," says Giannandrea. "This is the foundation, and we want the scalp to be in optimal condition. I recommend HPx Stimulating Shampoo (6.6 fl. oz. / $33.50) and HPx Enriching Conditioner (6.6 fl. oz. / $33.50). This shampoo gently cleanses hair, removing build-up and excess oil while maintaining strength, vitality, and volume. Follow with the lightweight conditioner to restore and re-balance moisture levels while providing essential hydration. These are great for clients to use daily at home as well.”

The new seasonal changes in the weather can also dramatically affect hair health. Springtime can mean rain and wind, translating to humidity and frizz.

Hair Prescriptives 3-Step Process will deliver happy clients, as well as a boost to your bottom line!

  1. Use the HPx Ekakshi Oil Complex® Active Hair & Scalp Serum Treatment at the back bar as a follicle booster to strengthen each hair strand at the core. Hair will be stronger and healthier post-treatment PLUS your clients can maintain the benefits with at-home treatment vials in-between professional services.
  2. HPx Enriching Conditioner can be used post-shampoo or as a leave-in for those who need extra moisture. Either way, use a wet brush or wide comb to distribute the moisturizer evenly throughout the hair!
  3. Finishing a great style is easy. Take a dime-size amount of HPx Daily Nourishing Styling Cream and run it through the hair from midshaft to ends. The nourishing cream is perfect for any client and aids in the prevention of split ends and frizz.

Giannandrea also advises using HPx Glamorous Glossing Serum on medium-to-thick textures, whether straight, curly, or wavy. "After washing and conditioning hair, towel dry and apply a dime size to the whole length, comb through and dry hair. If you prefer a smooth blowout, use a nickel-size amount of product after you blow dry hair, and run from midshaft to the ends of hair for a fabulous shine and a glorious finish. Try styles including low buns, high buns, or wet ponies this season, and don't forget the glossing serum!"
