Jet Rhy's Top Five Summer Hair Tips

Jet's Top Five Summer Hair Tip's

1.  Skip all the heat appliances for the summer. This is a great to trick to give your hair style in a healthy fun way. First, wash your hair & condition. Let air dry until hair is 75% dry. Finger comb into your hair some Davine's de Stress Yogurt Buffer Gel.

It is specially formulated to apply on damp/dry hair that provides a barrier from sun, chlorine, salt water and harsh pool chemicals. Working in sections, wrap your hair around TUBE SOCKS!! Wrap halfway up your hair and tie the two ends and go to bed. When you wake up untie the socks and shake, shake, shake your hair.

2.  If your hair seems to be suffering from a little dryness or it lacks luster you can add a few drops of sesame oil (it has a natural UV protector) to the ends of your hair before you hit the pool or the beach. Nothing will fade your beautiful hair color faster than the sun, salt and pool chemicals.

3. Try herbal tea rinses for the hair. Use lemon or chamomile for blonde's, strong black tea for brunette or black hair and red zinger for red heads. This is so easy to do. Boil I gallon of water, add 4 tea bags for 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool to room temp.

After shampooing and conditioning place a large bowl in the sink and lean over it, flipping your hair over your head. Pour the tea over your head letting it trip into the bowl. Fasten your ends in a clip and place a shower cap on your head. Let sit for ten minutes. Shampoo and condition.

4.  How can you keep your hair looking great when it's very hot and humid?

This trick is for curly haired clients. Rinse with cool water, it close's the hair cuticle and helps smooth the hair. Take a small amount of de-frizz serum from roots to end. Next, twirl sections of hair around your finger and let air dry. For straight hair, brush your hair in a high pony tail and leave it alone until it's dry. When you take it out you'll have soft smooth waves.

5. Not only does a braid look chic for summer it also keeps your hair contained tightly from harsh rays from the sun. Shampoo & condition and add a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen to protect the hair from the sun's harsh rays. Fasten with a snag free elastic band.

An extra bonus: your hair will look fabulous for the party after the sun goes down. Take the braid out and shake your hair. Beautiful, instant waves without the fuss.

More About Jet Rhys

What do you get when you combine a world-class colorist and image-making guru with a precision hair cutter and global educator? Jet Rhys salon in San Diego! Jet and Rhys, the salon's co-owners, have taught on stages around the world, styled at A-list events (like the recent LA screening of Julia Robert's new film, "Duplicity") and satisfied thousands

of local style aficionados.

Now, thanks to demand for both them and their highly trained staff members, they'll soon be opening a second location.

One of the best kept secrets of women with come-hither hair, Jet and Rhys frequently work behind the scenes, creating the money shots of those glossy, swingy manes for national television and print and ads of companies like Revlon, Pantene and L'Oreal.

Renowned educators, they have taught other professionals on stages in Japan, Mexico, Australia, the United States and Europe, and worked for color manufacturers, including Wella and L'Oreal. Both are Vidal Sassoon trained (Jet was the salon's former New York Color Director while Rhys is a former Vidal Sassoon Art Director), and when she worked

in New York and London, Jet colored the hair of Vidal himself.

Known for her upbeat wit, as well as her innovative, unparalleled color-passion, Jet's motto is, "look, study and attack." An absolute maestro in working with natural color and skin tones, eye brows, hair texture and bone structure to create a harmonious, signature style, she evolves the looks of the clients in her chair based on "honest" beauty.

It starts with creating the perfect, healthy hair canvas for color to come. Creator of the Jet City video guide to color techniques and the Jet Rhys Color Cocktail-the shaken, not stirred color refresher-Jet focuses on the ideal, image evolution.

Rhys' cult following comes from his ability to "read" hair like the lines on your palm. His precision cuts and incredible styles are as personalized as DNA, which is why clients drive as much as 150 miles just for a Rhys haircut. Also focusing on style evolutions, he has the ability to make changes that work with lifestyle shifts, switching from short textured cuts to long swingy styles with ease. If you're transitioning lengths or layers and have problems with "grow-out," Rhys is the go-to stylist for the fix.
