        Step-by-Step Guide: Creating Fashionable Prom Hairstyles for a Night to Remember

        Girls with pretty Prom Hair styles blowing kisses at the camera

        Prom night is a magical occasion where every detail counts, especially when it comes to your hair. Finding the perfect prom hairstyle can be a daunting task, but fear not! We've curated a list of trending hairstyles and how to achieve them using some of our favorite Pai-Shau styling products that will have you feeling like the star of the night. 

         

        Loose Waves

        Effortlessly Chic with RoyalTEA by Pai-Shau

        Nothing says “Spring Dreamy” like loose waves with effortless body and bounce. To achieve this chic look, we recommend using the incredible RoyalTEA by Pai-Shau. This lightweight spray extends blowouts and revitalizes hair between washes while adding volume and shine. 

        Step 1: Start with clean, dry hair - or at the most, day 2 hair.

        Step 2: Part your hair down the middle or create a deep side part for added drama.

        Step 3: Shake the RoyalTEA spray well and spray evenly at the roots or slightly down mids for more volume. 

        Step 4: Using a curling wand or curling iron, take small sections of your hair and wrap them around the barrel, holding for a few seconds before releasing. Continue curling all sections of your hair, alternating the direction of the curls for a natural look - or keeping with the same direction for a more elevated look.

        Step 5: Once all the curls are in place, gently run your fingers through them to loosen and separate them for those beautiful, loose waves.

        Step 6: Finish with a medium-hold hairspray to ensure your waves stay intact throughout the night. We recommend Sublime Hold Hairspray for optimum results! 

         

        Sleek Ponytail

        Supreme Control with Style Soufflé

        A sleek ponytail exudes sophistication and style. To achieve this polished look, we recommend using Style Soufflé, a product designed to provide nourishing and reparative extracts to the hair, along with supreme control and manageability. 

        Step 1: Start with 10% damp or dry hair.

        Step 2: Apply a small amount of Style Soufflé to your palms and distribute it evenly through your hair, focusing on the roots to tame frizz and add style memory.

        Step 3: Comb your hair back and gather it into a high or low ponytail, depending on your preference.Secure the ponytail with a hair tie, making sure it is tight enough to hold but not too tight to cause discomfort.

        Step 4: Take a small section of hair from the ponytail and wrap it around the hair tie, securing it with a bobby pin for a polished finish.

        Step 5: Use a flat iron to straighten any flyaways or baby hairs around your hairline. For an extra touch of sophistication, you can also add a ribbon or jeweled accessory around the base of the ponytail.

        Step 6: Want to amp up the shine? Complete the look with a pump or two of Biphasic Infusion applied to mids & ends of your pony.  


        Romantic Braided Chignon

        Immaculate Hold and Shine with Imperial Hold Hairspray

        When it comes to prom night, a romantic updo can elevate your look to a whole new level of elegance and charm. With its impeccable hold and shine, Imperial Hold Hairspray ensures your structured look stays flawless throughout the night. Get ready to turn heads and captivate the room with this ethereal hairstyle.

        Step 1: Start by parting your hair to the desired side or in the middle, depending on your preference. Take a small section of hair near the part and create a three-strand braid. Secure it with a clear elastic band. This will be your accent braid.

        Step 2: On the opposite side of the part, take a larger section of hair and begin a Dutch braid. Cross the outer strands under the center strand instead of over. Continue braiding down the side of your head, incorporating new sections of hair as you go. Secure the braid with an elastic band at the nape of your neck.

        Step 3: Repeat Step 2 on the other side of your head, creating another Dutch braid. Secure it with an elastic band at the nape of your neck.Gather all the remaining hair, including the accent braid, into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck. Secure it with a hair tie.

        Step 4: Twist the ponytail around itself, creating a chignon or low bun. Tuck the ends of the hair underneath the bun and secure it with bobby pins, ensuring it feels secure and neat.

        Step 5: Take the accent braid and wrap it around the base of the chignon, concealing the elastic band. Secure it with bobby pins to hold it in place. Gently tug and loosen a few strands around your face and the nape of your neck for a softer and romantic look.

        Step 6: Finish the look and hold it in place with Imperial Hold Hairspray so you can dance the night away! 

        Prom night is your time to shine, and with these low maintenance, chic hairstyles, you'll be sure to make a memorable entrance. Whether you opt for loose waves, a sleek ponytail, or a romantic updo, remember to choose a style that makes you feel confident and comfortable. And remember: HAVE FUN!

      • The Ultimate Guide to Maintaining Vibrant Hair Color with Pai-Shau

        A Women With Perfect Colored Wavy Curly Hair

        For many of us, hair color is a statement of our personality and style. Whether you're a blonde bombshell or a fiery redhead, you want your hair to look its best at all times. But the truth is, color-treated hair requires special care and attention to maintain its vibrancy and shine. That's why we offer a range of products specifically formulated to be safe for color-treated hair. Here's everything you need to know about using Pai-Shau to keep your hair color looking fresh and beautiful.

        Tip #1: Use a Color-Safe Shampoo

        The first step to maintaining vibrant hair color is using a shampoo that is specifically formulated to be safe for color-treated hair. Our Replenishing Hair Cleanser is a sulfate-free shampoo that gently cleanses hair without stripping it of its natural oils all while keeping color fresh + fade free. The best part is that it's free from harmful chemicals like parabens, sulfates and phthalates, which can harm hair and dull color.

        Tip #2: Condition with Care

        Conditioning is an essential step in any hair care routine, especially when it comes to color-treated hair. Replenishing Cream Conditioner’s color-safe formula nourishes and hydrates hair, leaving it silky and smooth, while our proprietary blend of amino acids strengthen. It also helps to detangle hair and restore natural moisture balance, which is vital to keep color-treated hair from looking dull and lifeless. 

        Tip #3: Protect Your Hair from Heat

        Heat styling tools like straighteners, curling irons, and hair dryers can damage color-treated hair, making it look lackluster over time. To protect your hair from heat damage, use our favorite oil-free daily rejuvenating concentrate, Biphasic Infusion. Our advanced binary technology drives the Signature Tea Complex inside the cuticle to nourish the hair’s structure, attracting moisture and locking it inside. Fortified with antioxidants and amino acids, it surrounds hair with a sheer veil of shielding properties to protect against thermal and environmental stressors.

        Tip #4: Use a Nourishing Moisture Mask to Prolong Color
        To keep your hair color looking fresh and vibrant, use a color-safe hydrating treatment like Supreme Revitalizing Mask. This nourishing mask helps to repair and restore bleached or color-treated hair, leaving it looking shiny and healthy. The formula is enriched with nourishing ingredients like our Signature Tea Complex, argan oil, and wild thyme which work together to revive and rejuvenate hair. The mask can be used once or twice a week to lock in moisture and maintain the vibrancy of hair color.

        Tip #5: Refresh Your Color

        Over time, hair color can fade and lose its vibrancy. To keep your color looking fresh and bright be sure to make regular hair appointments! On average your stylists would suggest every 6-8 weeks for those who like to stay as vibrant as possible or 4-6 if covering grays. Need help to get through a few more weeks? Consider making an appointment for a gloss to help revive color between appointments. 

        Don’t forget! Using color-safe hair care products is essential to maintaining the vibrancy of hair color. Pai-Shau's range of products can help keep your hair looking healthy and bright. With Pai-Shau, you can have shiny, vibrant hair without the fuss. Shop the full line of care and styling products here.

        3 Winter Hair Repair Tips + Tricks

        Girl in the winter snow with Beautiful hair

        Winter weather can leave hair feeling dull, dry and lifeless - but don’t worry - we’ve got you covered with these 3 tips for keeping hair healthy during the colder months. Keep scrolling for more!



        HYDRATE AND CONQUER THE DAY

        Never underestimate the power of a good hair mask! We know it’s hard to find time, but adding a moisture rich mask to your hair care routine once a week can significantly improve both the look and feel of your mane. Supreme Revitalizing Mask does exactly that! Not only does it nourish and repair, its unique blend of high performance polymers add volume and shine for your best hair day yet!


        Focus on hydration - drinking more water can help keep skin + hair hydrated and looking plump. The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine recommend between 11-15 cups a day.


        Invest in a humidifier. It’s a great way to replace any moisture loss in your home and will help keep your skin’s natural oil barrier intact. Place it somewhere you spend a lot of time, like an office, living room or bedroom for best results. 


        Don’t over-wash. I know it’s hard to hear but washing hair and skin too often can strip both of their natural protective oil layers. If you’re a daily washer and notice excessive dryness, this is likely the cause. Try showering every 3-4 days if possible to help keep hair, scalp and skin moisturized and feeling their best. 



        SAY BYE-BYE TO UNRULY HAIR WITH THESE FRIZZ BUSTERS

        One of the most common winter weather hair woes is frizz. Cold air contains less water than warm air, leading to moisture loss. Hair can become frizzier and tanglier during these months, which means it’s time to add back lost hydration! 


        Want shinier, frizz free hair? Rinse with cold water instead of warm, as colder water closes the hair cuticle, amplifying the appearance of glamorous shine. 


        Adding a frizz busting serum to your daily routine is a great way to rejuvenate parched locks. We love Biphasic Infusion for its nourishing cuticle penetrating formula that locks in moisture for long lasting hydration. You can apply both wet and dry for polished looking, tangle free strands. 


        Invest in a silk pillowcase or a silk sleeping cap - it will make all the difference in the world! Silk will help reduce friction when sleeping so you’ll be able to wake up silky smooth and frizz free! 



        STEP UP YOUR WINTER HAIR CARE STYLING ROUTINE

        You’re on your way to the healthiest hair you’ve had yet! What’s next? A GREAT STYLE! We aren’t gonna lie, this may be our favorite part. It’s where the magic happens! 


        The foundation of any good style is a blow out, right? Style Soufflé is the perfect product for creating frizz free styles while still maintaining shape and volume. Infused with antioxidants to retain moisture during the styling process it helps to maintain the integrity of the hair and the shape of your style. 


        To help keep hair looking its best, consider blow drying on low or allowing hair to air dry 70% before hitting it with the heat. This helps keep your cuticles looking frizz free and your hair shiny.


        Finish with a lightweight hairspray to help keep hair in place. Sublime Hold Hairspray has just the right amount of hold with no heavy build up or flaking. It also helps protect against environmental aggressors and will leave hair looking touchably chic.
