It was my New Year’s Resolution to have hair long all the way down to my ankles so I’ve been stalking admiring the hair dos of some of my favorite people. As one of June Ambrose’s nearly 60,000 followers on Twitter, I marvel over the behind-the-scenes looks of her work as a celebrity stylist, her down-to-earth nature, her insider Style Social lingo (chai tea anyone?), and of course her daily Fashion Dossier. One thing I’ve noticed along the way is how her hair always maintains its gorgeous, bouncy curls even days after her Weekly Renovations. So I asked the Architect of Style to dish on her hair secrets so we can all steal her lustrous locks.
June has a standing appointment every week at the Paul Labrecque Salon in New York City. She even takes her Twitter followers along for the ride.
Paul Labreque has three salon locations in New York City. Its East Side salon has been voted one of “New York’s Best” salon and day spas by New York Magazine, Details, InStyle, Allure, and Vogue.
I also wanted to know how June keeps her 100% relaxer free hair looking like she always just stepped out of the salon. Because her hair seriously looks like she just stepped out of the salon all the time.
She dished that she wears her hair in knots at night and sleeps on a silk pillowcase since scarves drive her nuts (me, too since they can slip off while you sleep). Her knots are pin curls formed with your fingers in the way you would with actual rollers and are then secured with bobby pins. The smaller the pin curl the tighter your curls will be when you take them out in the morning. Doing your hair like this is super-healthy since it requires no heat. Plus it’s uber easy to style since all you need to do is take the knots out and finger comb the hair. Perfect way to save time for busy rock moms like June who is a mother of two beautiful kids.
June also said she never puts any product in her hair since it weighs it down, but when rain and humidity tries to spiral her ‘do, she relies on Mizani HRM Humidity Resistant Mist. HRM helps protect against the formation of split ends and frizziness, surface damage caused by chemical treatments, and provides firm, weightless hold with protective UV filter for hair.
When you want to have a stylish haute hair day when the weather is being nothing but a haute wrecker, do like June and pop on a chic turban and a pair of retro shades. Your hair will be protected from the elements and you will look divine.
