Richard Marin: How to Combat Common Hair Mistakes

posted December 21, 2014

The most common hair mistake I see is over-styling! Remember K.I.S.S.! With the proper cut for you and the correct products and tools, maintaining your hair will be a pleasure. People often remember people for their hair, how it's cut, the health and the sheen of it. I know it's my work, but I often hear people say they didn't recognize someone because they changed their hair. Be gentle to your hair, keep overuse of product to a minimum, ease up on teasing or over chemically processing and give it the ionic tools it deserves to keep it as healthy as possible. I'm all for a good all-out glam look, but keep that for special occasions. Keep your day-to-day life hair beautiful and simple, which leaves a long lasting impression.

This especially true for today’s busy women looking for quick and easy ways to turn a day look into a night look. I always recommend what I call "convertible hair" (changeable easy styles). If you wear your hair long and straight to the office or school, in the evening do a ponytail or a loose bun or even a loose French twist. Curly and wavy hair girls can do the opposite because they have natural texture on their side. Try a loose bun by day, down and wavy by night. Options are always what you want to strive for with minimum maintenance.
