I always enjoy finding a hidden gem in our big city and for NYC, Ryan Darius Salon is definitely one of them.
When I arrived at the salon, I knew that I was going to have a great experience. My stylist, Tony, talked to me about color options and what would look best for my hair. The summer had not been kind to my locks and it was time to revitalize my style.
My Before pic shows you the lovely frizz that NYC summer heat has to offer when I do not apply product or blowout. Too much pouf and not enough style. What may be hidden are my grays coming in all over the place.
Add a great color and balayage mixed with a few good laughs and Voila!
By having the highlights painted on, it creates a much more natural effect that I absolutely love.
One thing I really liked at the salon was that Tony took the time to show me how to better control the frizzies on a day that I might not have a blowout. Bring back the diffuser. Yes, I have one in the back of my closet but had lost sight of how effective it really is. So he diffused my hair and it did look much better than the before pic. Then, he took the time to blowout my hair and showed me how to add a little flip while styling. By the time we were finished, it didn’t even look like I had a haircut. The blowout created great length.
