Summer Beauty Survival Guide

The Anushka Salon pros share tips for the ultimate in summer hair survival.

For most of us, summer in general means getting out more; whether you’re hitting the pool to cool off or jetting to far away destinations while on summer break. But the summer season also ushers in often harsher elements that can negatively affect your hair, like higher UV indexes and increased chemical exposure. Our pro stylists share tips to keep your hair looking and feeling its best during the most active time of the year.

SPF For Your Hair

Consider a leave-in conditioner that includes SPF, or a thermal protectant like “Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil” heat and UV protective primer from Bumble and Bumble. Simply spray on pre-styling and keep your hair protected in the sunlight or before a day at the beach.

Reverse Washing

With so much heat and humidity in the air during the summer, you want to minimize any greasy or heavy residual product that may be left in your hair after showering, which makes it harder to style hair and may lead to a “limp” look. Our style pros suggest reverse washing: conditioning hair first thenshampooing out. Doing this will help get your hair the enrichment it needs while also removing any bulky product that might be left over. Try Kérastase’s “Resistance” reverse care treatment duo.

Hair Clarification

In the summer months, our hair experiences higher mineral and chlorine buildup as a result of being in pools more and because of how our water is treated. If you haven’t already done so, go out and purchase a water filtering showerhead, which will help filter out things like calcium sulfide, zinc, copper, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, iron oxide, dirt, sediment and odors. Once you’ve done that, book a “Clarifying Treatment” at your salon for a custom-designed treatment to help remove any mineral buildup. At the Anushka Salon, this personalized prescription includes a deep cleansing and clarifying wash, a customized protein treatment and a finishing mask to help protect hair through the season.

Color Shield

Mineral buildup and sun exposure can also wreak havoc on your hair color. There are several formulas developed to help protect your color from brand leaders like Kérastase, Oribe and L’Oreal. Our own “Blonde Ninja”, Kristen, loves using Oribe’s “Bright Blonde” shampoo and conditioner because it helps protect hair while preventing it from getting “brassy”.

Keratin Smoothing

Keratin treatments have long been used to combat frizzy and unruly hair. These days, you can totally customize the level of “smoothness” you’re looking for, which makes them a great option for pretty much anyone who is looking to give their hair more protection against humidity. Talk to your stylist about how many weeks you want yours to last and what level of smoothness you’re looking for. Our pro, Andrea, suggests trying a 6-8 week-long treatment that will remove the frizz but keep your curl. Not only will the treatment help combat humidity, but the keratin complex will also fill in split ends, doubling up on the smoothness factor!

Dry Spray Shampoo

What did we ever do before the advent of dry shampoo? We admit – year-round – it’s one of our favorite products. Dry shampoo gives your hair extra life and volume between showers, but it’s also the best way to wick away moisture while you’re on the go. In the summer, mid-day heat can hit you hard, and having dry shampoo on hand can really prevent your hair from going limp. We love Oribe’s “Gold Lust Dry Shampoo” because it’s effective andhas that signature Oribe perfume that we live for!

Beat The Heat Beauty

At Anushka, nestled in the heart of the Palm Beaches, it’s not just hot in the summer months: it’s sweltering. And let’s “face” it, beauty takes a back seat to soaring temperatures, unrelenting humidity and the sun’s beating rays. But, the Anushka experts, who have over 40 years in the beauty biz, have the answers to keeping your cool summer look alive and well. In fact, many of the tips we heard encouraged our beach babes to work with the heat instead of against it. Check out our top tips from our own experts.

“To preserve your beautiful color, before swimming in a chlorinated pool, rinse with cool water. Believe it or not, hair will not be able to absorb chlorine when it is first wet!” says Anushka’s Shawn Butner, Master Colorist, who is also an expert artist in Balayage Color Treatment. To tame your tresses, opt for a Keratin Blowout ($199 and up), a less intense “smoothing” option which helps for those who want a “little help” in the summer months to ward off the inevitable humidity.

The natural elements of Summer: Sun, wind and surf, dehydrate hair so visit your stylist for a restorative conditioning treatment (we recommend Kerastase, $38) or opt for a rich formula at your beauty supply store. To keep the “beach wave” look alive, try a texturizing spray, like Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray ($26), which is a favorite of our Master Stylist, Celete Salas, who’s styling techniques are so in demand, her clients to fly her halfway across the world for a cut and blowout!

For the face, we asked Makeup Artist, Aesthetician and Lashologist, Ellie Malmin, for her go-to summer beauty tips. “Make summer beauty a breeze by choosing the right makeup and treatments that last long into late summer nights and give you the ultimate freedom.”

 Start with eyelash and brow extensions, which are naturally waterproof and look like your very own. This ultra low maintenance solution will make you say “so long” to your eye pencil by brightening the eyes from sun up to sundown, and last up to 3 weeks! ($250 and up for a full set). Add a brow or lash tint for and easy, semi-permanent look you won’t have to touch up for weeks!

Opt for face makeup that is ultra sheer and youthful to compliment your easy breezy summer look. For all day coverage, try an airbrush makeup solution that will withstand the heat and water. Finally, finish with a sheer plumping lip gloss for a perfect pout.

For nutrition and body, we went right to the guru herself, Anushka, who has been reshaping women and men from the inside out since 1974. Her ultimate juice is a must to look swimsuit sexy this summer.

“As far as beauty goes, we often neglect the most foundational part, which is what goes IN first! Start your day off right by powering up your vitamin, mineral and antioxidant intake by swishing down a super smoothie! Anushka recommend her Beauty Detox Smoothie. Start with 2 cups of water and add: 4-5 cups of baby spinach (fresh), 4-5 cups of arugula or kale, 3 medium celery stalks, 2 squirts lemon juice, 2 rings fresh pineapple, 1 medium banana, and 10-16 drops of stevia.

“Beauty is a reflection of inner health and wellbeing. It is harmony and balance: a delicate relationship between spiritual, emotional and physical aspects to bring your best features forward and express a healthy appearance and attitude.”, says Anushka.

Shop the Celebrated Spring/Summer Collection

After debuting for the first time at the Anushka Boutique earlier this year with their Fall/Winter 2014 Collection, LA PERLA is returning to the South Florida beauty oasis with their collection of exquisitely styled swimsuits along with the venerated Spring/Summer 2015 collection we’ve been salivating over in magazines like Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue.

For the core collection of lingerie, you can expect to see a slew of delicately designed pieces with the style and sophistication LA PERLA is known for, which has lead the way in luxury intimates since 1954. Back then, founder Ada Masotti named the brand after an ode to how she would receive her precious pearls: in a beautifully dressed red velvet case. We think the designers of the 2015 collection have paid homage to that idea of opulent luxury with each debut this year from their atelier in Northern Italy. We’ve also been blown away with their collection of couture swimwear featuring perfectly-placed transparency panels, crystals and leather sequins.

Anushka recognized the brand’s wearable lingerie styles last season and insisted on having the label come to showcase an exclusive trunk show at her Palm Beach flagship. “As soon as I laid eyes on the lingerie-inspired shapewear, I wanted to get the line in for my clients. Every detail is meticulously tailored and each accent is hand stitched, like a piece of artwork. It is sculpture-worthy shapewear.” Harper’s Bazaar editors sat down with the Companies’ North American CEO, Suzy Biszantz this June to talk about the Spring/Summer Collection. “Lingerie is all about enhancing the look without adding any distraction to it,” says Suzy. Read the rest of the article at:

The Anushka Boutique will be sharing an exclusive, event-only offer during the LA PERLA Summer Trunk Show Event, July 21-25. The showcase will include the Spring/Summer 2015 lingerie, shapewear and swimwear collections. Guests will also have an exclusive view of the Spring/Summer 2016 collection. The Anushka Boutique is located at 701 S. Rosemary Avenue in CityPlace. Call to schedule a private fitting at 561.820.0500.

Anushka’s experts share summer beauty tips and DIY tricks to protect your hair from the elements of summer and create easy, elegant styles in a snap.

1. Make Your Own DIY Salt Spray For Oceanic Waves

Recipe 1: Simple Salt Spray

Take 20 oz. of seltzer water and a teaspoon of sea salt. Mix them together and pour it into a spray bottle.

Recipe 2: Polynesian Blend

Dissolve 1 teaspoon of sea salt into 1 cup of hot water. Mix 1 teaspoon of coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of hair gel. Add 1 teaspoon or 1 tablespoon (depending on how dry your hair is). Whisk together, pour into a bottle and enjoy Hawaiian tropic tresses.

2. Create An Easy, Elegant Updo With Just A Headband

Place a headband on, preferably with an elastic band that holds tight onto the back side of your head. Simply begin picking up 1 inch thick sections or so and tucking them up and around the bottom of the headband until it is all secured up and away from your neck. This style is also a great way to achieve beach curls when assembled with damp hair first.

3. Protect Your Hair From Damaging Chlorine With…Tap Water?

Believe it or not, by simply rinsing your hair off before you hit the pool, you’ll be able to ward off hair-destroying toxins like chlorine. Why? Your porous hair will soak up the water first, which will help deter it from soaking in the pool water afterward. Beauty experts also mention that spraying a leave in conditioner (when your shower or smartwater is out of reach) for the same protective power.

4. Choose The Right Products To Fight Off Summer’s Elements

When hair becomes dry, it soaks up the moisture in the atmosphere, causing frizzy ends and drying the cuticle. Properly hydrating your hair with the right, specifically engineered hair products will help prevent this and leave you with sleek strands through the heat of the summer. Choose products with the following callouts: hydrating, anti-humidity, sulfate-free, UV protection, and alcohol-free. Speaking of alcohol, not only is it bad for your body but it wreaks havoc on your hair!

5. Sun Powered Conditioning Masque

Anushka recommends restorative masques from Oribe, Davines and Kerastase

While we don’t recommend over exposing your hair and scalp to the suns powerful rays, but there is a way to take advantage of that energy to give you more hydrated hair. Create your own “Sun Masque” by using a well-engineered, deep conditioning treatment, like Davines’ “NouNou” ($37 for 9oz.). This nourishing masque will help to repair dry, processed or brittle hair with active ingredients like tomato extract formulated in Italy.

6. Elegant Updo: Upside Down French Braid Ballerina Bun

This style is perfect after you've left the beach, when hair is easy to style infused with salt from the sea!

Create this gorgeous updo easily with damp hair or 2-3 day old hair for the right hold (also works great after the beach when the sun and sweat has made your hair perfect for styling!)

    1. Flip head upside down and comb upward, removing hair from the neck
    2. Select a section of hair at the nape of the neck and separate it into 3 pieces
    3. Criss cross the sections like a regular braid, and afterward, beginning from one side, grab additional hair from each side of the braid and twist together again (do not add hair to the center piece.
    4. Continue this until you reach the crown of the head
    5. Gather ALL of the hair and tie into a high pony tail
    6. Using a chignon or your own version, create a bun around the base of the pony tail

7. SPF: Scalp Protecting Formulas

Create your own hair SPF by mixing sunscreen and water into a spray bottle.

SPF for your hair is often overlooked. In order to maintain the integrity of your color and to preserve the moisture in your hair, beauty experts across the globe recommend you add a hair SPF into your beach bag. If you’re not able to purchase a fancy version, or are short on time, simply mix a bit of sunscreen with some water into a spray bottle and voila.

8. Cooling Shampoos & Conditioners

Choose products with peppermint, green tea mint or aloe for a refreshing experience.

What could be more enjoyable in the heat of the summer than experiencing the cooling power of peppermint and tea tree extracts in your shampoo? There are a number of very well made shampoos, conditioners and body washes that are rich in effervescent ingredients, opening up your pores and senses after a long day in the heat. We recommend Organix Tea Tree Mint Shampoo, which you can snag at any Whole Foods Store.

The Next Big Thing Is Here: 3-D Brows from Sleek Brows

For as long as we can remember, brows were a beauty ritual that required downsizing: plucking, waxing, threading and shaping. But now, beauty gurus are pumping up the volume, not just filling in brows for shape but adding dimension too. While eyebrow extensions (a sister treatment to traditional eye lash extensions) made the first major moves in creating the bold, Delevingne-esc look, a new product has recently hit the market that is especially helpful for women who have sparse or no brows: 3-D Brows from Sleek Brows.

Other than filling in your brows during your daily makeup routine with pencil or powder, the only way to reconstruct a permanent brow was with a permanent makeup treatment (yes, tattooing your lash line). These two dramatically different choices offer either a very temporary or very permanent solution.

Eye lash extension, which has been gaining a lot of popularity within the last few years notes our lash guru Ellie Malmin, is one very effective way to achieve fullness if have your own natural hairs to attach the extensions to. But many women who suffer from thinning brows from over-plucking, or patches from alopecia or those who have lost their brows completely from cancer therapies, are in need of a reconstructive treatment that offers a semi-permanent solution other than extension application.

Anushka’s own Lashologist, Ellie Malmin, who has been pioneering innovations in the eyelash and eyebrow industry almost as long as Anushka has been shaping women, clued us in on Sleek Brows: the only semi-permanent treatment that offers 3-D definition and long-wearing resilience for women with little or no brows. This treatment is applied, like paint, one by one. The solution is a textured pigment, custom blended to match or create your desired brow color. Once applied, the solution lasts up to 4 weeks through normal day-to-day activity and is water and smudge proof.

Anushka is now offering custom 3-D Brow with Treatments with our award winning Lashologist Ellie for $80 an application. Call to schedule a consultation or treatment with Ellie at 561.820.0500.
