Antonino's Signature BlowDry

Antonino’s Signature BlowDry

Bigger is Better

Big hair is on the rise (forgive the pun) and by using the best products and styling techniques, it’s easier than ever to achieve.

It begins with the right products

“Using the appropriate products is the foundation for creating big, glamorous looks”, says Anthony Marsalese, owner of Antonino Salon and Spa in Birmingham, Michigan. “When a guest comes in for a special event, we consult with them about their desired hairstyle, and then we analyze their hair texture and type to determine which products are best to achieve that look”.

Anthony continues by saying “Antonino Salon offers many products for achieving full, bouncy and beautiful hair. Oribe’s ‘Imperial Blowout’, ‘Maximista’, ‘Volumista’ and ‘Grandiose Mousse’ are all excellent choices, as is Moroccanoil’s newest addition ‘Thickening Lotion’. It’s all just a matter of where you’re starting from and where you want to go”.

Then comes the technique

The Antonino Signature BlowDry was derived from a French technique called the French Blow Dry which was created for women who want body, shine and glamorous hair.

“We begin the process by drying sections at the top of the head in the opposite direction of where we’d like the hair to fall” says Anthony. “We then either put a roller in that section or lay it in an over directed position as it cools as we continue onto the next section. When we are through blow-drying the entire head in the same manner, we gently shake the hair into the desired style. The result is beautiful, full hair that is ready for the red carpet”.

All of the stylists at Antonino Salon have been extensively trained in the Antonino Signature BlowDry and are educated on how to teach this method to their guests so they can replicate it at home.

Antonino Salon-No Bad Hair Days Ever…

All of the stylists at Antonino Salon and Spa have been extensively trained in a blow-dry technique called “The French Blow-Dry”.

This unique styling technique uses round brushes of varying sizes. Stylists start at the top of the head and over-direct each section before gently lay it down in the opposite direction of how they want it to fall. After reaching the last section on each side, all of the above sections are brought down, resulting in beautiful cascading waves with a lot of body, softness and movement.

If you’ve ever wanted beautiful, “magazine cover” hair, then the French Blow Dry is for you.

Call us at 248-258-5990 or request an appointment today to reserve an appointment for your special evening on the town.

The French Blow-Dry; just another reason Antonino Salon is the best salon in town.

Shag Me Baby!
The 2015 Shag Haircut

The 2015 Shag

 

We are happy to report that the shag is back. Since hitting the runways in New York and Paris this winter, the rocker inspired haircut has replaced the beach waves popular on catwalks over the summer.

“The biggest difference between the 2015 shag and the shag made famous by Joan Jett in the 1980’s is its structure” says Anthony Marsalese of Antonino Salon and Spa in Birmingham, Michigan. “Although it’s still piecey and textured, it is more defined and much softer”. He continues with “shag’s in the past have been shoulder length with feathering on the top and sides with a full crown, but the new versions can be chin length or shorter and are much narrower”.

After receiving the modern shag, it’s important to style it with appropriate products to achieve the maximum effect. Moroccan Oil’s Root Boost and Hydrating Style Crème are good used together or a cocktail of Texture Maker and Volupt Spray by Sebastian are great when blow drying the hair. Finish the style off with pomade such as Oribe’s Rough Luxury or a soft, touchable hairspray.

All the stylists at Antonino Salon and Spa have been extensively trained on how to create the new shag. So, be sure to stop in or request an appointment to find out if the hair cut is right for you and to see why Antonino Salon and Spa is the best salon in Birmingham.
