Six of 2018 Hottest Hair Styles You Need To Know

Winter is still upon us. But consider what lies ahead. In just a few short months, Spring will be here. And so will these trendy hair styles that will win your heart as they have the hearts of Hollywood’s elite. According to PEYMAN ABEDINI of The Studio Hair Salon in Thornhill, here are the 6 major hair concepts you need to know now…

#1 Top Knots: Top Knots are very popular. The high casual and messy tails have become the number one style, at hand for any situation. Sometimes it is a half up half down knot that allows you to show off the hair length and texture. Sometimes it is casual high knot to conceal bad hair days. In other cases, it is the classy look with high slicked sumo knot.

#2 Low Ponytails with Black Bows: One of the casual hairstyles taken to runways is the ponytail. More exactly the low relaxed one. Actually, it is all about the cutest hair accessories as shown on designer shows in Paris and New York – the velvet ribbons and bows. This refined piece converts the most ordinary look into something much more.

#3 Trendy Cornrows: Very recent runways shows of Balmain for fall 2017 collections introduced cornrows. Three tight braids and slicked sides ending in a low tail. Not for everyone, but definitely eye-catching.

#4 Mid Parts: All this takes to be the height of fashion is to make a correct center parting. Simple, and so very popular.

#5 Slicked Back Wet Hair: This trend has no intentions of leaving the world of hair fashion. The wet and slicked styles are coming back each time, slightly updated, yet always sensual.

#6 Wavy Bob: The biggest and most obvious hair trend for 2018 is the bob cut in all its possible variations. While the angled bob is slowing fading, the casual wavy bob, aka wob hairstyle, is extra fashionable.

 6 Hair Extension Methods That Will Work For You


With the Holiday Season and parties upon us, some of you may be seeking a formal, dramatic or new hair look that could also be used throughout the year for other special occasions, including on-camera interviews or videos.  So, I turned to PEYMAN ABEDINI, Celebrity Hair Stylist at THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in Thornhill to get the inside scoop on how to achieve sexy and sophisticated hair using hair extensions and pieces. There are several types of extensions that will add volume and length and meet your other hair concerns. Don’t stop at just one brand or type because not all extensions are for everyone.

“Throughout my experience as a hair extensionist, I’ve tried many different types of hair extensions”, PEYMAN explains.

Here are a few….

Sew-in: Sew-ins are cost-effective, easy maintenance and fairly easy to remove. Here’s how they are applied… Your hair is braided tightly to create a base for the hair wefts to be sewn and attached. This technique is not for everyone as not all hair types can handle the stress from the braiding and weight of the extensions. You need to have the hair retightened through the four months. There are many different textures, colors and types of hair for you to pick from and there are many different price points, based on quality and length.

Clip-ins and other temporaries: Clip-ins are wefts of hair that are attached to a clip. Clip-ins come in many different sizes so they can be placed all around the head. They are great for the person who wants instant gratification for special occasions. Clip-Ins take a short amount of time to put in and around the head. They can add length and volume in just about every texture, color and price range. They come in synthetic hair, but I recommend using real hair at it is much easier to style when using heat. Halos are temporary alternatives to clip-ins. Perfect for those looking for length and/or volume. And, they’re also ideal for someone with hair that cannot handle stress. Halos have an undetectable wire connected to the weft of the hair. It uses the weight of your own hair (which is pulled over the halo) to keep it secure on the head.

Top Pieces: Top pieces are great for those with thinning hair on the top of their head. The extension adds thickness and volume to the top of the head to help camouflage thinning hair. The ones I have used either have a clip or micro beads keeping them in place. You do need to have them retightened from time to time.

Micro link: Micro links also known as micro beads or locks, are gentle to put in and easy to take out. Links can be added for length and volume. There is no glue or heat used when applying. To apply, a small silicone bead is placed onto the base of your hair, with an individual strand of extension that is attached. You must be careful not to use conditioner near the bead to help reduce slipping of the extension. With them, you will have to come in every couple of months to have the extensions retightened. Micro links last about four months.

Tape-in: Tape-ins can be used for some length, but I use them on clients for more volume and thickness. It takes only a short amount of time to install the extensions. And in this case, you don’t have to come in every six to eight weeks to have them removed and reinstalled. They are applied with a heated tool that heats up a thin strip of glue that is on the hair weft. Your hair is put between two wefts to create a seal. But you will have to be careful with using heavy conditioners or oils because that can cause slipping. These extensions can be reused many times before having to order new ones.

Fusion: Hot or cold fusion is used on individual keratin bonds. Fusion extensions are great for clients seeking length and volume and want little maintenance while the extensions are in. You can treat the extensions as if it were your own hair. Fusion extensions might not be suitable for those who have compromised hair due to the stress it can cause. It can take about two to three hours to have a full head of extensions put in and last about four months. This is one of the more costly extensions available.

6 Ways To Straighten Your Hair Without Heat Or Chemicals

If filming on a green screen is in your future, you are going to have to straighten or flatten your hair to avoid lighting and spillage problems that will make your hair look green, at least in parts.  So, I called upon PEYMAN ABEDINI, Colour Specialist and Celebrity Stylist at THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in Thornhill to give you some advice on how to straighten your hair without the use of heat or chemical straighteners.


Straight hair is stylish, pretty, and convenient, for fall, winter and green screen camera shoots. However, the problem with straightening hair is that many of the tools used, such as heat and chemical straighteners, are really bad for it. “Over time, they dry it out, split the ends, and you end up with straight hair that’s not nearly as attractive as it once was”, Abedini says.

Fortunately, there are some other methods for encouraging curly or wavy hair to straighten out naturally, without using heat or chemicals. You won’t get the pin-straight look from the iron, but you’ll have healthier hair that’s more or less straight with volume.

  1. Brush wet hair until it dries

After washing your hair, let it air dry completely, but continue to brush it every five minutes. Pull out and hold each section of hair for a few seconds to encourage it to straighten out. You can also do this in front of a fan, which is faster, but requires constant brushing.

  1. Wrap wet hair tightly

When your hair is wet, comb and divide it down the centre. Comb the left portion all the way over to the right (yes, it’s a combover of sorts) and wrap around the back of your head, securing with bobby pins. Flip the right section over the left side, wrap, and pin in the same way. Let it air dry completely. You can wrap in a silk scarf and sleep on it to reduce frizz.

  1. Roll your hair

Use large hair rollers, i.e. the size of soda cans, to roll sections of wet hair and secure them tightly against your head. Let dry completely. This is important, because the slightest bit of moisture can make the curl or wave come back.

  1. Use overnight hair hands

Divide damp hair into one or two low ponytails. Fasten with a soft hair elastic, then add additional elastics every inch or so down the ponytail, in order to hold it together. Make sure the elastics are fairly loose so that they won’t leave a noticeable mark on your hair. Go to sleep and let it out in the morning.

  1. Twist hair into a bun

If you have fairly obedient, straightish hair to begin with, then this method will likely work for you, though it’s not effective on my stubbornly wavy hair. Make a ponytail of damp hair and twist like a rope. Wrap around itself to make a bun and secure with an elastic. Let air dry, then brush out.

  1. Make a natural straightening mask

Mix 1 cup of whole milk or coconut milk with 1 tbsp of honey and let it soak into your hair and scalp for one hour before washing out.  You can also mix 2 cups milk with 1 egg. Soak your hair in it for 10 minutes, then squeeze out, don’t rinse, and wrap with a plastic cover for another 30 minutes. Wash out and brush dry.


It is recommended that you apply this DIY straightening mask twice a week for 2 months in order to relax and straighten your hair: 1 cup coconut milk, 5-6 tbsp lemon juice, 2 tbsp olive oil, 3 tbsp cornstarch. Heat at low temperature and stir until smooth. Cool, then apply to hair.

To all of these methods, add a few drops of sweet almond or coconut oil to tame frizz and smooth out the look.

How To Make Your Blowdry (Blowout) Last For Days


Don’t you just love the feeling of salon-fresh hair? Would you like your blowdry (blowout) to last for days to keep that salon feeling for as long as possible? Well, thanks to PEYMAN ABEDINI, Colour & Hair Stylist at THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in Thornhill, you can!

Whether you’re busy with multiple media appearances, meetings and events in the same week and have limited time and money to get your hair done or your favourite pamper treat is a blowdry, follow these 10 tips to keep your blowdry looking awesome for as long as possible:

  1. Don’t Touch Your Hair

I know it’s hard to resist the amazing feeling of after a blow dry, but “please don’t touch it”, Abedini states. “Your hands and dirty and it’s messing up your hair so stop it.”

  1. Sleep With Your Hair Clipped-Up

At night, twist your hair up and clip it loosely on top of your head. You’ll avoid frizz from your pillow and tangles during the night.

  1. Sleep On Silk

“Switching to a silk pillowcase really does make a difference”, Abedin adds. A cheaper alternative is to tie a scarf around your pillow. That’s also a great option for when you’re travelling.

  1. Use A Shower Cap

Sexy, I know. But your hair needs to be protected. Try super chic turban shower caps from Louvelle.

  1. Take Shorter Showers

And turn down the temperature a little. You want to avoid too much steam which will create frizz in your hair.

  1. Dry Shampoo Is Your Secret Weapon

When those oily roots threaten to undo your do, “spray some dry shampoo and brush it through your hair”, Peyman suggests.

  1. Brush Gently

Choose a gentle brush like Mason Pearson or a Tangle Teezer. These brushes will keep your hair looking smooth rather than fluffy.

  1. It’s Ok To Restyle

You can use a round brush to restyle any kinks with your blowdryer. Reshape the layers around my face to keep them looking the way you like.

  1. Add In Some Curl

“On days three or four, if you start getting a lot of kinks in your hair, curl it with a 1-inch curling wand”, Peyman recommends. Adding in some texture helps prolong the style so you can still wear your hair out.

  1. Braid It

Towards the end of your blowdry’s life, braid your hair and put it up. This way it still looks good and you can avoid another day of washing your hair.

5 Hollywood Hair Myths (and DIY Cheats to Get Red-Carpet Hair at Home)

The pressure to look perfect is something every woman deals with at some point in their life. Perhaps, for a special occasion or event. Having just finished working the red carpets at tiff (Toronto International Film Festival) and realizing that fall is now upon us with graduation, award ceremonies, banquets, charity galas and holiday parties creeping-up, many of you may find yourself in the predicament of not having a hair-stylist on-hand, frantically trying to do something breathtaking with your hair in mere seconds. Believe me, I’ve been there and done that with virtually almost no notice to make it to the red carpet on time with outstanding hair. So, I called on my hair life-savers, Colour Specialist Joseph Deluca and Colour & Celebrity Hair Stylist, Peyman Abedini, both of THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in Thornhill, who normally transform me, to debunk a few Hollywood hair myths and reveal some easy ways to cheat the celebrity hair look at home, in case like me, you find yourself in a panic…


Myth #1: The Myth of Freshly Washed Hair
“Call it Hollywood’s dirty little hair secret”, Peyman Abedini, says! “Most women I know think that clean, just-shampooed hair is a prerequisite to having a good hair day, but that gorgeous hair you see on the red carpet? It’s probably dirty.” Stars are asked to show up for their Golden Globes or Oscar styling session with dry hair, preferably washed no sooner than the night before. Here’s why: Dirty hair holds a style better than fresh, clean hair. And it’s during the damp stage that style sets in anyway, meaning all that time you spend with the dryer and a brush styling dripping wet hair is a waste!

DIY it:
If you give up the myth of clean hair and allow yourself to wash it the night before and then just revive it in the morning, your hair will have more body and you’ll have more time. To style dry hair, just dampen your brush and run it over the top layer of hair before you blow-dry and/or use products meant for styling dry hair, like dry texturizing spray, hair oil and dry shampoo, along with a straightening or curling iron (you’ve skipped the blow out step) to style your hair.

Myth # 2: The Myth of Red Carpet Curls
You’ll never see frizzy curls on the red carpet, only perfectly defined, gorgeous waves or ringlets, even if the star’s known for her naturally curly hair. What’s the secret? First her hair stylist will blow hair straight to take the frizz out (kind of like ironing out the curls!), then he’ll go back in with a curling iron and put in precise waves or curls.

DIY it:
“You can achieve a similar effect by applying frizz-fighting lotion or hair oil to wet or damp hair”, Abedini explains, “then wrapping your hair tightly in a snail-like bun to sleeken the curl.” Once dry, use a curling iron to give the curls more direction if needed.

Myth #3: The Myth of Superior Hair DNA
Not every celebrity has great hair. What they do have is great spirit… and hair confidence! To reference celebrity stylist Harry Josh’s quote, “What’s so great about Kate Moss’s hair? It’s medium-fine hair, cut to her shoulders. Nothing special. But we love it because we love the image she portrays. Attitude is everything when it comes to hair.”

DIY it:
“Own your hair. Even if you just pull it back, if you own it, it can look amazing.” It’s the ‘fake it until you make it’ theory… and believe me, it works. If you have hair confidence, you’ll feel hair confident… and confident period!

Myth #4: The ‘It’s Real” Myth
You can often recognize a boob job in Hollywood, but fake hair? Tougher to catch. With HD TV, you can see right through hair so they almost always have to pump it up with (invisible) extensions. Remember this as you watch stars on the red carpet and feel badly that you don’t have their superior hair DNA (myth #4!).

DIY it:
There are plenty of extensions, the clip-on kind, on the mass market these days. I have used them sometimes when I’m on TV and no one can tell. For a natural look, Abedini suggests “buying some and even colouring them when you colour your hair. Your hair stylist can make them a perfect match.” Or you can thicken your own hair with the new volumizing powders. Apply to roots, massage in and your hair will look fuller instantly.

Myth #5: The Myth of The Award Show Ponytail
“Those glammed up pony’s you see every year walking the red carpet? I call them ‘phony-tails’ because even though they look like ponytails, there’s nothing remotely resembling your 30 second at-home ponytail about them, Abedini states!” These are sophisticated hair styles created by high-end, high-priced hair stylist who spends the time to first blow out, tease and curl a star’s hair before pulling it back. Seriously. I once got one of these dressy ponytails for an event and I sat in the chair for over an hour, a far cry from the 30 seconds it takes me to make a ponytail at home!

DIY it:
Peyman has some great ways to ‘cheat’ the time-consuming styling part and turn your own DIY ponytail into a red-carpet worthy hair style:

For a big messy celebrity ponytail, you can use a dry texturizing spray to ‘tease’ hair in seconds. Turn hair over your head and spritz the hell of it. Flip over your hair and pull it back, securing it with a bungee cord elastic so as not to squish the volume at the crown. For added volume, try Conair’s Perfect Pony kit, which has a funky piece of plastic you place at the crown between layers of hair to create a bigger ‘bump’ in front of your elastic.

For a sleek ponytail, pull hair back sleek, apply some hair oil for shine, then go over the tail with a straight iron to smooth it out as if you’d blown it dry.

For a mix of the two styles, sleek front with a full tail, pull your hair into a sleek ponytail as described above, secure it with an elastic, then tease just the tail for a messy, sexy, red-carpet-worthy effect.

One more Hollywood ponytail trick: Always remember to take a piece of hair from the base of the ponytail and wrap it around the base of your ponytail to hide the elastic!


3 Ways To Have Effortless-Looking Hair

Walk with Peyman Abedini, Star Hair Colourist and Stylist at The Studio Hair Salon in Thornhill, ON, and you’ll be stopped, almost constantly, by incredibly good-looking women, at least half of whom are just coming from or on their way to the salon. Even the ones who’ve just come from the salon have that model-off-duty, I-woke-up-like-this sort of hair—the opposite of what you think of as just-done, freshly styled, or newly coloured. “It’s the cool-girl thing right now,” Peyman says. “Nobody wants to look like they made an effort, had a blow-dry, curled or coiffed anything.” Rest assured, he notes, waving at some happy clients across the street, the blow-dryer isn’t dead, nor is the curling iron or even the flat-iron: They’re all still there, just being used for less-polished purposes.

“People want less of the oily, silicone-y, perfect-curl, reality-star vibe,” says Abedini. “It’s more about natural oils, less stiff, more…off duty. The new Aura Botanica line from Kérastase is perfect for this look, whether you heat-style or air-dry. It’s a pendulum, of course, between the natural look and the polished coif: Right now, it’s all about effortless, quirky, individual—more natural.”

There are many routes to an effortless look, however: Here, 3 of both Abendini’s  faves…


Air-Dryed Hair

The main thing is to aid yourself in your air-dry, to rid your hair of excess moisture, so this doesn’t become a three-day process—and so you’re not diluting the product you want to use,” says Abedini. “So, blot dry with a towel, or even wrap your hair in a towel and wring it, gently. I do like those microfiber towels—they absorb a lot more moisture, because they touch more surface area. There’s no real downside to them—the only thing is, with any towel, you just don’t want to be super vigorous, or you’ll create frizz.”

“If you’re one of those girls who really frizzes, use paper towels to blot the hair, to be as un-abrasive as possible.”

“You want your hair pretty dry before you go in with product,” Abedini further explains. “Really thick hair can take creams or oils—but even if your hair’s thick, use a small amount and spray it or smooth it into your hand, so you distribute it evenly. You can do an oil mist, too—I love the new Aura Botanica Essence D’eclat Hair Oil Mist from Kérastase—it’s 99% natural, and it’s absolutely incredible—kind of the ultimate product to get that cool-girl texture: Flip your hair over and mist from the mid-length to the ends. The mist is so fine it’ll distribute perfectly on its own—I still like to mist it into my hand and then run through the hair, but see what works for you. I also love leave-in conditioner to keep hair moisturized and super healthy.”

“If you want more of a bend in your hair, grab random sections of hair and wrap them around your fingers into a curl—then you can clip it, let it set a little bit,” he says. “Another thing I like to do is make two sections on opposite sides your head, and twirl each piece to make a sort of rope, and then clip to two ends together so they don’t unravel—it’s so pretty when you take it out.”

“To avoid too much frizz—the less you touch your hair the better—use a mist on your hand, then shape curls around your finger, and you can treat frizzy spots with a bit more product if you need,” he explains. “If you overdo, blot with a paper towel so it’s less oily and heavy.”

For fine hair, mousses are great, but you use them differently than you would if you were blow-drying,” he says. “Where you would normally slap it on at the roots for a blow dry, when you air dry, put it onto your paddle brush—I love Mason Pearson. This will distribute the mousse through ends better, which is where you need it. Mousse is a foam gel, and normally you have to activate it with heat right away or it turns into a sticky mess, but a very small amount into the mid-lengths and ends give an air-dry hold and texture.”

“To give fine hair the body you want, turn your hair upside down and shake it around as it dries; then once it’s dry put dry shampoo in—it gives it body and grit, and it prevents it getting flat and greasy later on.”


The Un-Blow-Dry

Plenty of clients aren’t ready to go full-on air dry, says Abedini; the idea here is the look of air-dry, but with the shine, shape, and control you get if you blow-dry. “As you dry your hair, think of doing a rough dry—flip it upside down, really move your hair around, spritz in a little texture—I like the Aura Botanica Essence oil mist—before you start, and the force of the air from the blow dryer will help create a cool texture. I also love to use salt sprays and surf sprays to give it a little guts, when it’s still semi-wet. Then you really let it fly with the blow-dryer—remember a little frizz is what makes it look air dried—not that you want it like cotton candy, but that the almost oily-perfect ringlets we’re used to are a little…reality-star.”

There are lots of ways to manipulate it once it’s dry—you can wrap it around things like a toilet-paper roll or even rags. “Braids are great for thick long hair if you make sure all the moisture’s out first: Put it into a loose braid or even a loose-braid bun, then later you drop it down and it’s cool, messy, and beachy,” he says.

If you do want to add in curl, keep it just as offhand, says Abedini: “Pick up imprecise piece in the hair to curl, rather than perfect sections. Wrap just the middle of the piece around the iron, avoiding both the roots and the ends of the piece. The faster your wrap it around and release it, the cooler it will look. Think of creating a cool, messy rope, instead of a defined curl. Rake your fingers through it, let it drop a little—you can always do again. It’s better to use a lower heat twice, instead of high heat once. Keep the iron on low, grab random pieces, curl a big piece, then split into two…That freedom will make it more Princess Bride less Jersey Shore, more French girl, you know?”


The New (Sophisticated) Straight Blow-out

For Abedini, the glassy-perfect blowouts of the past are a little too sleek: “That press-press-sizzle-sizzle process where you’re trying to mimic a keratin treatment isn’t really what’s happening,” he says. “Clean, straight, beautiful, polished hair still makes sense, but it’s a little more relaxed, refined—not burnt into perfection. Women are more mindful of the amount of heat they’re putting on their hair now; no one wants that fried look. It’s a fine line between sophistication and overdone.”

The good news is that the goal of a less-perfect finish makes it easier to achieve at home. “If you’re good with your direction with your blow dryer, you’re in great shape—you’re just sort of taming it, getting the cuticle flat so you get shine and movement,” says Abedini. “That section-by-section meticulous thing is not healthy for your hair, and the result doesn’t look so modern. I like to use Kérastase’s Aura Botanica Concentre Essentiel Hair Oil Blend—depending on your hair you can use it as a pre-shampoo, or use on mid lengths and ends before blow drying to prevent frizz—and then also mist a bit of the Essence in right before styling. Use a big boar-bristle brush as opposed to a ceramic or wire brush—they get too hot, and they have less give so when they hit snags, they rip through the hair and break it, cause split ends—make it more fried. If you’ve got really curly hair, you can use a flat-iron to touch up unruly pieces, or the concentrator on your blow dryer.”

Fall/Winter 2017/2018

3 Hottest Hair Trends


Some women never experiment with their hair color. It’s not that they were all blessed with the perfect shade of chestnut brown or naturally butterscotch blonde locks, but rather, they’ve never experienced the transformative powers of an on-point dye-job. But no matter if you’re a hair-color veteran or an ombré newbie, know this before you visit the salon this year – flat, single-process color is out.

“Trends like balayage and babylights will continue to remain popular,” Joseph Deluca, Veteran Hair Colour Specialist at The Studio Hair Salon in Thornhill told us while forecasting the top hair color trends of fall 2017 and winter 2018. “But the term ‘hair painting’ will be one to watch, added Peyman Abedini, Hair Colourist and Stylist at The Studio Hair Salon.”

Abednini, who says most of his clients look to Instagram and Pinterest rather than the runway for inspiration, predicts that a less-done look is going to hit its peak this year. In colorist speak, that translates to carefully placed highlights and all-over strobing—especially for curly-hair ladies. And while these might mean more time in the chair at first, the color will be low-maintenance, so you can lengthen the time between visits.

“Hair color will be the new makeup,” Abedini added. “With the current climate of the world, hair color is an opportunity for self-expression, so you’ll continue to see vibrant shades—whether it be a full head of rainbow color or a more subtle pastel—grow in popularity.”

Here are the top three fall/winter 2017/2018 hottest hair trends…


Hair Painting

“Most traditional highlight clients are still foiled but hair painting and free-handed application techniques will definitely grow,” Joseph Deluca commented. “It’s a perfect way to balance the natural look those clients are looking for with a less “done” feel and no line of demarcation in between salon visits.”

Strobing for Curly Hair

“Hair strobing is when you use, dark, medium, and light color to create movement in the hair while respecting the natural texture,”  Deluca continued. “It involves tricking the eye: It’s not about up or down movement, or side to side movement. Strobing is about colors dancing and movingly just like you would see lights strobing on a screen. It’s inspired by the makeup trend of strobing. And Most of the time, colorists will straighten curly hair before coloring, so we’ll see more colorists work with hair in its natural state when applying hair color.”

Vibrant Colours

“Deep blues and greens for dark hair, as well as reds and oranges for lighter hair will be huge,” Abednini remarked. “If you’re not ready to commit to a full-on bold look, try a peekaboo color application with hints of violets or blues. Try a semi-permanent color like Redken City Beats, which will let you give the trend a try but washes out in 12 shampoos.”

Must-Have Hair Care Products To Take On Vacation

Whether you’re jet-setting abroad, or going on a quick weekend getaway, Colour Specialist and JOESPH DELUCA and Hair Stylist, PEYMAN ABEDINI of THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in THORNHILL recommend you pack travel-size versions of these 5 must-have beauty products…

1. Shampoo

There’s nothing like coming off an airplane with our hair rested against the head-rest everyone has been laying on and thinking about all of the germs that may have transferred into our hair. For some of us, this seems a bit dirty. On the other hand, though, there’s some of us that mad dash to the airport without enough time to wash and style our hair before our trip. Pack a shampoo that can clarify your hair and get rid of impurities. Wash your hair as soon as you’ve arrived at your destination.

2. Conditioner

After washing your hair, of course, the next step is always to condition your locks. Pack a conditioner that helps rehydrate your hair. Let’s face it, not only does airplane air suck the life and moisture out of your skin, it also leaves hair feeling super dry. Replenishment and rehydration are key for parched locks post-flight. Opt for a conditioner whose formula works to deliver hydration to your hair to target dryness, which you’ll totally need on your adventures.

3. Dry Shampoo

Going away for a long trip? If you answered yes, you certainly have a reason to pack this miracle in a bottle hair product into your bag. Another reason, some of us don’t really have the time to wash our hair during vacation for obvious reasons: we rather spend the time having fun, or we’re just way too busy. Dry Shampoo which works to refresh and revive oily hair in-between washes. A serious hair saver on vacation.

 4. Boar Bristle Brush

Your hotel probably has a complimentary blow-dryer and a basic comb, but they may not have a good brush. We’re pretty sure you don’t want to use a brush with rough bristles that will tug and pull out your hair. Opt for a smarter choice. The boar bristle brush is the brush you’ll want to use to style your hair into just about any hairstyle you choose to wear throughout your trip. Pack a lightweight boar bristle brush, which is easy to travel with, and glide it through dry hair before styling for a soft and shiny finish.

 5. Stylers

Pack the travel-sized version of your favorite styler whether it’s a hair oil, mousse, gel or hairspray. If you’re looking to pack just one styling product that can help tame flyaways, add shine and control your hair, opt for a hair serum that you can use on wet or dry hair. A Keratin Infused Smoothing Serum, can help to eliminate frizz, add shine and leave your hair looking and feeling smooth.

The Truth About Going Blonde

Going from Brunette to Blonde is not an easy process. A lot of clients think it can just be done in one visit, by putting one color all over the hair, simple as that…but that’s not the case. It takes skill, patience, confidence, experience, a colorist who knows his or her stuff, and a client who is cool, calm and collected through the many stages of blonding. In this article, Joseph Deluca and Peyman Abedini, Revlon Certified, Award-Winning Hair Colour Specialists and Partners at The Studio Hair Salon in Thornhill talk about whether you’re the right candidate for becoming a blonde and how to get there.


First things first. You need to ask yourself if you’re ready to be a part of a Blondetourage.

What it entails to become a blonde…

Damage Going lighter calls for some type of damage to your hair. If you have box color, or any type of color at all on your hair when going blonde, your stylist WILL HAVE to use bleach. There is no other way to lighten hair with color on it. Color does not lift color out of hair. End of story. This is why it’s important to gradually lighten your hair when going from one extreme to the other. If your hair is already severely damaged, you need to ask yourself, and your stylist if it’s in your best interest to go lighter.  We’ve had to ask clients several times, would you rather have healthy, shiny hair or dull, damaged hair? If your stylist (or several stylists) tell you it’s not in your best interest to go lighter, PLEASE trust them. You will find some stylist out there that WILL lighten your hair, however, it will probably cause damage or in worst cases, break off. We’re not saying that you can’t ever go light. If your hair is healthy, and the lightening process is done correctly and slowly, you can safely go lighter with your hair over time. But even then, there will most likely be some sort of minimal damage to your hair.

Time Going from dark to light takes several appointments, and normally several hours at a time. Plan to be in the salon every 4-6 weeks to start with, and plan to spend several hours in the salon with each visit. No stylist should try to take your hair from a very dark color, to light in one session. In fact, we have turned clients away that would just not listen to me when we said we couldn’t take them from dark brown to blonde in one session. If you’re planning on going light, make sure you tell your salon beforehand so they can schedule enough time for you. If you’re a new client, go in for a consultation first, or tell the receptionist your current color is dark and you’re wanting to go blonde.

Patience– As stated above, it takes time to get to the desired blonde of your choice. Be patient with your stylist, when going lighter and understand that you might have to live with a color that is “in between” what you’re hoping to achieve for a few weeks. Dark hair is naturally going to lift to warmer tones, especially if it has old box color on it, so you are most likely not going to be an “ash” blonde until you’re closer to the lightest blonde shade. However, it should still be a pretty color in the process.

Money– Being blonde isn’t cheap, it is a higher maintenance lifestyle, not suited for everyone. If you’re going from brunette to blonde, you will need several appointments for full highlights about every 4-6 weeks, until your desired color is achieved. Once you’ve reached your desired color, you will need to come in for touch ups or a base break every 5-10 weeks depending on the contrast in your natural color vs your blonde. At this point, you can get by with just doing a partial highlight, and a full every few times, which is less expensive. You will also need to invest in good products to keep your blonde looking good, and healthy!

Go to a Pro – Trying to go blonde on your own is a big no no for several reasons. It can cause breakage, and most of the time reveals unwanted brassiness. Always go to a pro who knows how to safely take your hair light without damage, while also preventing those unwanted brassy tones! We’ve seen several attempts of “at home color gone wrong” and it will most definitely save you time and money to go to a professional. (color corrections aren’t cheap) Don’t be afraid to set up a consultation at your salon, or even a consultation at several different salons to see which one fits you best.

Be Honest– Your stylist will ask you questions about your hair history. We’re not doing this for fun, we need to know exactly what was done to your hair previously, as far back as you can remember. Knowing how many times you’ve put color all over your hair, or how many times you’ve gone dark to light and then back again, will let us know how easy or difficult it will be to get you light and also tells your stylist which products to use on your hair.

Prepare for your visit– It’s never too early to start using good products on your hair to get it in the best possible condition. Weeks prior to your hair appointment, start using a good protein based shampoo and conditioner. Deep Condition the heck out of it. And continue to do this for as long as you live. Or at least while you’re a blonde. The day of your visit, come with clean, dry hair so your stylist can see your natural color, easily. Sometimes when hair is unwashed, it makes the natural color look darker than it really is because of oils, and build up.

Everyone’s lightening process will be different depending on the history of your hair, and texture of hair. Someone with less coloring processes, and thinner, fine hair may be able to lighten their hair more quickly than someone with years of color that has super thick resistant hair.


2017 Summer Hair Colour Trends



Stuck in a hair color rut? Summer, that season you emerge from self-imposed hibernation and tend to go out Every. Single. Night, offers maximum exposure for the new hue.Peyman Abedini and Joseph Deluca, Partners, Revlon Certified Colour Technicians and Hair Specialists at The Studio Hair Salon in Thornhill share some                           summer perfect ideas to help inspire you…

Cool Blondes

The temperature maybe heating up, but blondes are experiencing a cool down this summer. Creamy gingers, creamy Platinum Ash and Smoke Taupe are the new blonde buzz shades, according to Peyman Abedini,  Partner, Hair Colourist and Hair Stylist at The Studio in Thornhill. Babylights weaved throughout the hair are meant to lighten and brighten without losing dimension.

But pastels aren’t for everyone. A colour that is naturally occurring in hair (though maybe not yours) is strawberry blonde so consider that an easier-to-wear option. “The balance of red and blonde achieved through highlights and a gloss is perfect for a natural redhead or a blonde looking to experiment with a new shade of red,” says Colour Specialist and Partner, Joseph Deluca, also of The Studio. It may just be your gateway hue to more colorful locks.

Summer is the season for blonde, but this year suggests really going for it with a white blonde, Mother of Dragons shade. Just remember to keep the chlorine-removal shampoo on hand and cover up to keep it cool.

Defined Highlights

“This season, it’s about dimensional color,” says Abedini and Deluca. Really warm mixed with neutrals and a lot of reflective color and not blended, but defined color placement.

While pastels have been everywhere, both suggest peach for summer. “It looks especially good on bronze and sun-kissed skin, plus adds warmth to any skin tone.”

7 Ways to Get Incredible Curls Without Heat

Hair curling with a curling iron is an option, but you need a bit of skill to maneuver the wand. And what about hair damage? Fortunately, there are several techniques that teach you how to curl hair without a curling iron or tongs. We asked PEYMAN ABEDINI, Partner, Hair Colourist, Hair Stylist at THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in Thornhill for tips on the fastest and the best ways for hair curling without heat.


Here’s what PEYMAN told us…


#1: Old t-shirt for New Curls

  1. Wash your hair the way you usually do. Blot it dry with a towel.
  2. Cut a t-shirt in long strips from the neck to the hem.
  3. The thinner the strip, the tighter the curls.
  4. Take a small section of your hair, and roll the strip and the hair upwards till your scalp (or till as much as you want). Roll inwards so the curls turn towards your neck.
  5. Tie the end of the strip to hold the hair in place.
  6. Repeat this for all the hair.
  7. Let your hair dry completely before removing the strips.


#2: Headband for Retro Curls

  1. Wash your hair the way you usually do. Blot it dry with a towel.
  2. Slip a headband around your head.
  3. Take sections of your hair and wrap around the hairband until all the hair is within the band.
  4. Secure loose ends with pins.
  5. Let your hair dry completely.
  6. Gently remove the headband and pins, and unleash your curls.


#3: Braiding for Natural Waves

  1. Wash your hair the way you usually do. Blot it dry with a towel.
  2. Make a centre parting and tie two ponytails.
  3. Braid the two ponytails and secure the end with a rubber band.
  4. For tight curls, make more braids, for looser curls, make just one braid.
  5. Let your hair dry completely.
  6. Gently loosen the braids and shake your curls free






#4: Sock Bun Waves

  1. Take an old sock with the toe part cut out and roll it into a doughnut shape.
  2. Wash your hair the way you usually do. Blot it dry with a towel.
  3. Pull your hair into a ponytail at the top of your head.
  4. Pull your ponytail through the sock. Wrap the hair and tuck it in securely.
  5. Roll the sock to include more hair.
  6. Continue rolling and tucking until you reach the top of your head.
  7. Secure the bun with the help of clips.
  8. Sleep in with the bun and loosen it in the morning for gorgeous tumbling waves.

#5: Waves are Easy

  1. Wet your hair lightly unless you’ve just washed it.
  2. Detangle your hair and make a centre parting.
  3. Twist each section tightly to form a bun on the two sides of your head.
  4. Let your hair dry overnight.
  5. Gently open the buns the next morning and voila! Waves!

#6: Roll With It

  1. Get your hands on some hair rollers. Big rollers give big curls, and small ones give tighter curls.
  2. Wash and condition your hair, and blot it with a towel.
  3. Separate a section, roll it and immediately encase it in a roller. Secure the roller as per instructions.
  4. Repeat the step until all hair is sheathed in rollers.
  5. Leave untouched for 4-5 hours.
  6. Gently remove the rollers and enjoy the curls.

#7: Twist & Curl

  1. Wash your hair the way you usually do. Then dry it with a soft towel.
  2. Comb your hair thoroughly and make a centre parting.
  3. Twist each section until it resembles a tight coil. Secure it to the top of your head with a clip. Do the same to the other side.
  4. Allow your hair to dry overnight.
  5. Remove the clips and enjoy your curls





The No Parting Parting


Altering your hair parting can change your look in one easy swoop.

 “A parting can completely change the dynamic of your face,” says Peyman Abedini, Hair Stylist at The Studio Hair Salon in Thornhill.  “The no parting parting is a ‘suits all’ look which enables you to create a subtle break in the hair without being too definite. The look is timeless and looks effortless. It’s less about bed-head and more about soft, chic hair. Hair should have a beautiful texture and a disheveled finish, but shouldn’t feel over-styled.”

It’s a look that looks best when working with hair’s natural texture. “Think Laid-back, lived-in, undone,” he adds.

In creating this look it’s important not to overwork the hair – creating an obvious zig zag parting for example can look forced and unnatural. “Don’t overthink this look, work with your natural parting – gently lift the roots with your fingers as you blow dry for a more lived-in finish. Fingers are the best tools here to rub and tease the hair.”

Don’t try and perfect the look, however. “The undoneness is what makes it sexy,” Abedini says. ‘Remember that wrong can be right!”

How to get the look…


Step 1: Blow dry hair smooth, and brush hair back before letting it fall into a natural divide. Do not perfect the line.

Step 2: Use a wide-barrel curling iron or styling wand, take 1-inch pieces of hair and wrap around the barrel. Release the curl after about 5-10 seconds.

Step 3: Let the curls cool; playing with the curls when they are warm will just make them drop.

Step 4: Separate the curls using your fingers, pulling gently down to give an effortless and disheveled finish.

Step 5: Spritz your hands with a sea salt or dry shampoo, such as a Sebastian Drynamic and rub down the mid-lengths and ends to enhance teased textures which will fall elegantly down around the face













3 Ways to Wear Half-Up, Half-Down Hair Without Looking Like A Teeny-Bopper


We all have those days when we want to do something different with our hair to match the season that doesn’t take a lot of time and effort, or make us look foolish – like a Teeny-Bopper. Blame it on Jennifer Lopez or Ariana Grande’s signature “do” or our love for nostalgic beauty trends—the half-up do, our go-to grade school style, is officially back. We’ve recently spotted hair idols like Blake Lively and Rihanna making it look surprisingly cool again too. Whether you want to switch up your go-to top knot or your hair isn’t long enough for a full pony, Hair Stylist, PEYMAN ABEDINI of The Studio Hair Salon in Thornhill, recommends trying these three quick, half-up-half-down styles for grown ups…


The Cool-Girl Top Knot

We’ve seen this half-up-meets-messy-bun hybrid everywhere lately. Since getting your top knot in the right shape is key to this look, make like Vlogger Sazan Barzani and spritz a texturizing spray like Oribe’s throughout, then twist the top section of your hair into a bun and secure with an elastic. Next, use bobby pins to sculpt your bun. Finish by teasing the sides of your loose hair with a teasing comb to create just the right amount of messiness.

The Teeny, Tiny Pony

For a flirtier look, go for a quarter-up, which will make it easier to get a high pony and create more volume on both top and bottom. To get the look, tease your hair at the crown, then secure a small, top section with a clear elastic. Instead of slicking the updo portion back and down against your scalp, leave it loose to maintain volume.

The Formal-Friendly Half Twist

The red carpet is proof that half-up, half-down styles are perfect for special occasions. A few simple twists can look surprisingly intricate. Start with curled hair, then grab small sections from the top of your hair on each side (as you would for a French braid), twisting each at the back of your head to create the “half up” section. Work your way down and secure your twists with a hair elastic and you’re ready for your step and repeat!

3 Tips for Getting Your Hair Spring Ready


Spring will be here soon, darling! And while you’re busy scanning the fashion mags and shops for the latest spring must-haves, THE STUDIO HAIR SALON IN THORNHILL is here to remind you that your closet isn’t the only thing that needs revamping after a seemingly endless winter.  Healthy hair is in, so check out our 3 tips that will be sure to get your hair Spring-ready!

#1 – Detox

Just like a seasonal skincare approach, beautiful hair starts with a clean slate. Protection of the scalp and hair follicle is the principle of healthy hair! Whisk away winter product build up and scalp debris with an intensive deep cleansing hair and scalp treatment in a professional hair salon. Sometimes our hair needs more or less of what we think, so it’s best to leave it to the experts to prescribe the right treatment and products.

#2 – Clarify

Follow-up your intensive treatment with a natural clarifying shampoo to maintain the results. This is especially great for color-treated and chemically damaged hair. Clarifying shampoos will help maintain your in-salon results and protect your scalp and hair color while increasing strength and shine.

#3 – Hydrate & Restore

The key to fresh, healthy, shiny hair is to replace lost moisture and proteins after a season of harsh weather and exposure.  We recommend using a rinse in conjunction with a leave-in hair treatment for dry and damaged hair. Look for treatments with Hyaluronic Acid (natural lubricant) and Sodium PCA (protein) – perfect for hydrating dry scalps and hair.

So, while you’re gearing up for spring-cleaning, don’t forget to make room for the right products to get your hair ready for spring! Check out all of the great products available at THE STUDIO and BEAUTY SUPPLY OUTLET!

Here’s a recent picture of me with JOSEPH DELUCA, taken right after he applied his colouring techniques and PEYMAN ABEDINI cut and blew-dry my mane making me feel human again…



The Psychological Side Of Getting Your Hair Done

Whether you’ve been sick, gone through a major crisis, loss, divorce or career change, there’s a PSYCHOLOGICAL SIDE to getting your hair done that affects your self-esteem and mood.

After 5 weeks of being ill and seeing my brown roots show, I was never so happy to see Colour Specialist, JOSEPH DELUCA and Hair Stylist, PEYMAN ABEDINI at THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in THORNHILL for my colour, highlights and a cut.

As JOSEPH DELUCA puts it… “Most of us accept that looks matter. We know that our appearance impacts our personal, social and professional lives. We also know that how we feel influences how we look and vice versa—a phenomenon I call beauty self-esteem.”

Although we’d like to believe “what is inside counts most,” scientific evidence, as well as common sense, tells us that an appealing appearance, good health and hygiene positively impacts our lives.

While some such as Sex and the City Star, Sarah Jessica Parker are keen on dark roots mixed with some streaks or Hombre shading, I’m not. When my roots show, I feel unpolished and embarrassed to been seen. Granted, I’m the product of a men’s retail clothier and makeup artist. I’m also in an “image” business and frequently on-camera. So perhaps I’m a bit more sensitive to these matters than most. To compensate and preserve the usual “you are so fashionable and always look great” compliments I receive, I clipped my hair up, opted for coats with hoods, and applied make-up in tones I don’t typically wear.

I simply couldn’t wait to be “blonder” and flip my layers around my face again. Not because I’m a shallow. Rather, my hair plays a significant role in my self-esteem. The attention focused on quarterback Tom Brady or actress Jennifer Aniston supports the same sentiments along with the rationale that many of us share over this physical asset.

Other factors contribute too, as PEYMAN ABEDINI explains…

1) HistoricallyThe role hair has played in people’s self-image goes way back to ancient history. As long ago as Greek and Roman times, elaborate wigs were signs of status and wealth. Beautiful hair was associated with royalty, worn like a crown. Cleopatra was famous for her thick, black locks. Samson’s long hair symbolized supernatural strength. During American Colonial times, upper class men and women wore white, curly wigs. Political figures and judges also adorned them as a sign of wisdom and sophistication. With decorative, attractive hair being highly valued throughout history, it continues to impact how we view ourselves today.

2) DevelopmentallyAnother way to understand the psychology behind hair is to note its role biologically. For example, we instinctively view babies born with thick hair as heartier than those are with little or none. As children grow, we continue to see hair growth as a signal of good health. For adolescent boys, early facial hair is associated with virility, and on teen girls with signs of fecundity. Luscious thick hair is often equated with female sensuality and sexuality. Likewise, as we enter midlife, thinning or losing hair is associated with aging, loss of health, decreased fertility and virility.

3) AestheticallyHair frames the face, the feature considered most important in terms of first impressions. Faces generally are viewed as playing a greater role than bodies when it comes to attraction between people. Following a person’s smile, eyes and skin, their hair is often the next feature people notice on first encounters. It is among the top three features—along with height and weight—used when describing others and one of the feature most often recalled after a social interaction occurs.

4) Self-WorthOur sense of attractiveness is strongly connected to confidence and positive self-esteem. Many men and women associate confidence with feeling in control, and hair is one way most of us can be in charge. For example, hair can be altered through cutting, coloring and highlighting, but controlled through straightening, curling and styling. Styled, well-kept hair gives us the external appearance of being well managed and it can contribute to feeling that way internally. Some people say that a manicure or pedicure creates a similar reaction.

5) Beauty for the AgesAs we get older, we inevitably feel loss in a number of ways—decrease in strength, flexibility, height, cognition and acuity. Even people in very good health are faced with dealing with changes that are inevitable. Although hair loss, thinning and graying are natural consequences for most aging people, a lot can be done, without too much time, effort or money to enhance hair style. Unlike surgical and cosmetic interventions that are used to update other physical features (e.g., lasers, face lifts, tummy tucks, teeth implants), enhancements to your hair are much less radical, and yet they can make a huge difference in how we feel about our aging appearance.

6 Ways To Make Your Eyes Look Bigger With Makeup


Beauty trends come and go (like dark liner with light lipstick), but big eyes have always been ideal. And while some lucky ladies are blessed with huge peepers, others remain challenged when it comes to making their eyes pop. Luckily, a slew of cosmetics and a few tricks can help you create instant doe eyes.

Here is a step-by-step application process to have you looking like a deer in the headlights (in the best way) in no time…

1. Nude-ify your lids 

Apply a matte nude shadow over the entire lid, as this will even out your coloring and create a good starting base. 

2. Apply eyeliner 

Lightly line the upper and lower lids from the inner corner to the outer corner with a soft brown or taupe eye liner. Apply the eyeliner a little heavier on the outside corners to make your eyes look longer rather than rounded.

3. Line under your eyes

If you aren’t one to use dark eyeliner on your lower lash line, take a neutral or white pencil and trace there instead—this will brighten your eyes. But if you do prefer a darker lower line, do a few extra strokes towards the edge of your outer eye for a wider-looking gaze.

4. Add depth 

Apply another shadow a shade or two darker than the nude used in step 1 to your crease and use your finger to blend the color up toward your eyebrow.

5. Highlight 

Using a highlighter or white powder, dab the inner corners of your eyes. To draw more focus to your eyes, use the highlighter under your brow bones as well.

6. Coat your lashes  

The bigger and thicker your lashes, the more attention your eyes will command. Curl your lashes and then apply a few coats of black mascara. If you really want to commit to the look, consider investing in fake lashes or lash extensions.

We started to see a lot of bronde’s in 2016 and it’s only getting more and more popular. It’s great for spring because in some lights it looks blonde and in others brunette. It’s a great option if you don’t want to commit to one colour or the other.

5 Airplane Approved Hair Tricks Your bags are all packed! Uber or the limo has been called. You’re off to the airport about to spend the holidays in Florida, Mexico, Cuba or Down Under. Here are 5 easy suggestions for low-maintenance, pretty hair after a long plane ride…
  1. Brush your hair and leave it alone. You don’t change the style of your hair on a plane and shouldn’t touch it at all. Women are often unaware of how much they play with their hair. But did you know that touching your hair will make it dirty faster?
  2. Ponies work! Long-hair girls can put their hair back in a loose ponytail. This keeps your hair up and off your face, and will look amazingly fresh when you take it down upon landing and want to snap your first vacation selfie to post on Facebook.
  3. Hats can protect you from more than the sun. A loose fitting hat, something that won’t give you “hat hair”, will act like a barrier to keep your hair fresh.
  4. Plane time is the perfect time to sport a twist or a braid. They always look good, on the plane and after you land, and usually look better when hair is a bit dirty.
  5. Go to the restroom just before the “fasten seat belts, we are preparing to land” announcement. This is the perfect time to make yourself “land ready”. This is when you fluff or brush your hair. Women with fine or oily hair should keep a pinch of baby powder in their bags. Brush it through your hair and it will absorb oils and give your hair a bit of extra body.

These tips don’t rely on messing around with lots of products (most of which you probably can’t bring on board due to travel regulations).

5 Easy Holiday Hairstyles You’re invited to a few must-attend Christmas, Hanukkah and New Year’s parties. But between meeting work deadlines, taking care of the kids, decorating the house, preparing meals, wrapping presents and packing your family’s luggage, you only have minutes to get dressed and look smashing. How do you it? It’s not difficult as you might think to come up with an elegant, party-ready look. Colour Specialist, JOSEPH DELUCA and Colour and Hair Stylist PEYMAN ABEDINI of THE STUDIO HAIR SALON in Thornhill simplify this season’s prettiest styles…
  1. The Roll-Up

To create this look, Peyman recommends using a Sarah Potempa Half-Up ($9,, a three-inch-long piece of flexible foam with a slit in the middle. Slide hair, an inch from the ends, into the slit, then roll the foam horizontally up to the nape. Secure the roll with bobby pins. The final touch? A glittery comb slid atop the roll.

  1. The Side Braid

Scrunch a texturizing spray (such as Philip B Maui Wowie Beach Spray; $25, all over clean, dry hair for a tousled look. Gather hair to one side and braid. You can weave two thicker sections with one thinner one for a modern effect. Secure the end with an elastic; cover with a bow, made from fabric-store ribbon.

  1. The Pretty Pony

Start with a naturally wavy texture (or create it with a curling iron) and sweep hair to the side. Secure in a ponytail holder. To embellish, broke a large, sparkly hair comb into pieces, then place them in your hair and over the elastic.

  1. The Triple Flip

Center-part your hair and pull back a narrow section from each temple to the nape. Then, secure with an elastic hairband. Flip the tail inward, through the V formed by the two strands—Topsy Tail–style. Repeat directly below with two more pairs of strands; secure and flip each pair.

  1. The High Bun

Pull your hair into an elastic at the crown. Lay your thumb horizontally on the elastic. Loop a thin section of the tail over your thumb; anchor the section to the elastic with bobby pins. Wrap the rest of the tail around the loop to form a full bun. Pin in place.
