High Ponytails with Hair Bungees!

High ponytails are hot! But if your hair has any length, the height won’t stay for long.
So I was super excited to learn about these Ponytail Hooks!

Finally. A Way to Keep a Ponytail
HIGH!

Ponytail hooks, AKA or Hair Bungees, are mini bungee cords your your hair. These elastic hair ties have metal hooks on the end to lock into your hair for all-day-staying power. Regular hair ties or hair elastics will slip, causing hair styles / ponytails to fall. Hooks means more control on style with no slip! High ponytails stay high because the hooks lend more control.

Theses are also perfect for pulling up naturally, curly hair for sleep, buns and updos – without pulling curls out! Secures hair into place without being overly tight or pulling on hair.

I think these would be perfect to work with a ponytail wrap extension!

Check out this great Howcast video from celebrity and editorial hairstylist Jacqueline Bush.
At around 1:13 she starts talking about “hair bungees” and how to use them for high ponytails.

Plastic Surgery or A High Frequency Machine…I’ll go with the High Frequency Machine

The older I get the more issues I have with my skin and the more money I have to shell out to try and fix it. It is not just one problem at a time, it is multiple problems at once! From wrinkles, acne, lines, dark circles, drooping, large pores, it just never ends! I’m sure you have had many clients with the same issue, and there are only so many treatments you can perform on a client in a day. High Frequency units are the all-in-one machine for all of your clients’ skin problems.
High Frequency is used to kick-start the skin rejuvenation process. It enhances circulation, increase production of collagen and elastin, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells, and assist with absorption of skin care products.
High Frequency current stimulation forces an infusion of oxygen-rich molecules into the skin, which cleanses, massages, stimulates blood flow, and dilates superficial blood vessels. Because of the increased blood flow, high frequency tones the skin (similar to muscle toning). Application of high frequency current promotes
a cleansing antibacterial action, and the skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer. The dilation of blood vessels pushes toxins away from the skin9s surface, and allows the skin cells to feast on increased nutrients and hydration.
How Does it Work?
With High Frequency skin treatment, a chemical reaction causes the emission of ozone into the air. Ozone is a form of oxygen that has germicidal properties and is extremely beneficial for treating seborrhea or acne skin. The more oxygen that surrounds the electrode, the more ozone is formed and the greater the effect. When the electrode is lifted away from the skin surface, more oxygen surrounds it, a more intense drying and healing action occurs.

High Frequency facial machines include glass electrodes which come in different shapes and sizes to treat various contours of the face and body. When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon or argon gas filled glass electrode causing it to emit a subtle glow. High Frequency electrodes produce either a neon orange or violet colored glow depending upon the inert gas that they are filled with. We have found that both colors produce equally effective results.
One Machine, endless Benefits!

They can be kept warm in your hot towel cabi, or you can warm the liner only in the microwave for approximately 30 seconds before inserting it into the sleeve. Use caution when using microwaves as they vary and may require less heating time. Overheating can melt the plastic liners.
  • If you don9t have a warmed sleeve already prepared, warm the liner only in the microwave for 30 seconds before inserting the Eco-Fin cube into the sleeve.
  • Unroll the Eco-Sleeve and slide it onto guest9s hand or foot. Help disperse the rich emulsion evenly by massaging over the hands or feet.
  • Place warm herbal or electric mitts/booties onto the hands or feet.
  • Remove mitts/booties and liners after 10 to 15 minutes and massage remaining emulsion into hands and forearms or feet and legs. Discard used liners and reuse sleeves/herbal mitts & booties.

Also, this is a great, low cost add-on for any spa/salon treatments you offer! Based on a hand treatment using 1 cube per hand, it’s less then $1.60 per treatment!
