FYI: Healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp.

Well hello again!

Here at Ferricchia we are convinced that hair requires the same regimen and attention that skin does.  Why...because almost all hair concerns lie much deeper than the skin's surface. The answer to shinier, thicker and healthier hair lies in treating the root (hair bulb) from which the hair actually begins it's life cycle.
What we all strive for: Hair Vitality!

By the age 40 for most men and women our skin regimen changes. We need to deal with all the signs of aging...wrinkles, dullness and sun damage.  

Hair changes in similar ways.  The color looks dull, our hair loses its shine and then decides to go gray on us.  
Phytocyane serum. Use with the Cyane shampoo!

At this point more than ever we need to be aggressive in our mission to feed the source. There isn't much you can do to the hair once it emerges from the scalp (skin).  So focusing on adding nutrients to the hair bulb/scalp area daily can change the end result of the actual hair strand.

Solutions....PHYTO! For over forty years Mr. Ales has paved the way for botanical hair care long before the emergence of environmental awareness.  Formulated with pure plant extracts and 100% natural essential oils, PHYTO utilizes over 500 different active ingredients that are sustainably sourced. As a result, Phyto products are infused with plant based ingredients and have been proven to improve thinning, dull hair.

Think: Feed the source with nutrients and the end result is bound to be beautiful.

Phytophanere for thicker hair and stronger nails, accelerates growth!

When our clients switch to Phyto products they see and feel the results and become OBSESSED!

Here at Ferricchia our training with PHYTO never stops.

One of my favorite Phyto systems is the hair thinning and hair loss line.
 There are products specific to both men and women.  This range may be preventative and restorative but it also can give anyone's hair a serious boost!
There are different reasons for hair thinning or loss. It can be short term and triggered by stress or health issues, hormones even.  It can also be hereditary, which most is most commonly seen in men.
The PhytoPhanere hair and nail vitamins are great for both genders and is their #1 seller in Europe.

The Phytocyane Shampoo, excellent for temporary hair loss or thining.
The Phyto Cyane shampoo and treatment are excellent for women experiencing hair loss or thinning. The Cyane works to stimulate the hair bulb and jump start new growth. This system will also strengthen and thicken the diameter of each strand with help of vitamins and plant proteins.

Let's hear it for the boys!
For men, we recommend the Phyto Lium system.
The Lium system is ideal for hereditary hair loss. Phyto Lium delays thinning, prolongs hair's life cycle and encourages new growth.  It's unique patented botanical complex protects the hair bulb and improves cellular exchanges for denser, thicker and stronger hair.

So if hair loss or thinning is a concern, if you're looking to take preventative measures OR  if you simply desire a more lustrous mane, we have several options that work beautifully.

At Ferricchia, we are more than happy to help you with whatever hair and scalp issues you might be facing. We will recommend a personalized home care routine and can perform restorative treatments in- salon.
We hope to see you soon, and have a lovely Thanksgiving!

A cut that works for everyone? Introducing the LOB!

Hello darlings!
This season's hottest cut is one that flatters virtually every hair type and face shape. It can look youthful and carefree or polished. It's the Lob, or long bob.
Jennifer Aniston- The head of hair that launched thousands of  cuts back in the '90's with the "Rachel" now trying the long bob, which promises to be equally as popular.
This shoulder grazing style is universally appealing and works when styled both super-sleek or with beachy waves.  It looks equally amazing with a middle or side part, with a side-swept fringe or no bangs at all.

Rachel McAdams incorporates side swept bangs.
If you happen to have a round face the length of the cut won't showcase roundness as it falls beneath the jawline, in fact the lob works to accentuate cheekbones. If you have a longer face, that may appear on the thinner side with some cuts, a choppy lob looks great - shorter layers create balance and width. It really does work on everyone!

Oh,  Nicole! A sophisticated glossy lob.
Fashion forward celebrities like Nicole Richie and Kate Moss have been sporting this 'do as of late, it's a great way to experience a versatile style like the bob while still keeping some length. As a lady with long hair, I'm attached to my length, but this style is super appealing and has me considering a change-up.

Leigh Lezark keeps length while still lobbing.

 If you're looking for a change this might be the cut for you. Perhaps you don't want to take the plunge into full on bob-dom (which, I might add  is also adorable). The Lob can be a great step in that direction though.
If you ask your stylist for one thing, ask them to cut your hair shorter and straight across in the back, and longer in the front. You'll avoid the #1  pitfall of long bobs, which is their tendency to look too soccer mom-ish. You want the front to skim your shoulders.
Lobbyist: Olivia Palermo's center part.
 What makes some celebs' lobs so rockin' is the uneven finish at the bottom. But if you have fine hair, piecey can turn stringy. The thicker your hair, the choppier your stylist should make the ends.
Schedule an appointment, our expert stylists are looking forward to helping you determine which type of lob will be most flattering and fun for you.
At Ferricchia it's all about making a style work for you, the client- this a a great cut for everyone- so we hope to see you very soon!

Stay lovely,
