5 Ways to Celebrate National Hair Day

Happy National Hair Day! We at Iles Formula love hair and we want to take this joyous occasion to celebrate with you. As such, we’re showcasing a couple of fun things you can do to treat yourself and take care of your hair today.

If you’re ready to dive into something fun and liberating but not quite sure what you want, you will surely be inspired to get your hair transformed after seeing our list of suggestions! Need a little motivation to take the plunge? Read on for 5 Ways to Celebrate National Hair Day.

1. Give Your Hair Some Love

What better way to celebrate National Hair Day than to treat yourself with some indulgent spa treatment?

Visiting a spa salon is therapeutic from the moment you step through the door. It’s a luxurious experience to be able to clear your mind, take a step back from your busy schedule, enjoy a slice of serenity, a glass of champagne, and a relaxing scalp massage in Zen haven. Spa sessions for your scalp are designed to relieve muscle tension and boost blood flow, making it easier for your hair to receive the right nutrients. Having a deep scalp massage will improve your circulation and relieve stress. And most of all, it will give your hair the care it deserves. You will walk away from the spa feeling on cloud nine.

But hey, we know not everyone has the precious time or the budget for a dedicated spa day. Not to worry – we have the perfect solution for you! You can replicate the scalp massage two to three times a week for 5-10 minutes while washing hair at home where you feel most comfortable! Simply pour a coin-sized amount of Iles Formula Shampoo on your scalp, massage your scalp in a circular motion and apply a little pressure with your fingertips. This will allow the effect of the shampoo’s active ingredients to absorb better, leaving your hair feeling wonderfully refreshed, nourished, and clean!

2. Get a Fresh Hair Cut  

Sometimes the secret to great style can be as simple as heading out to a hair salon and getting a fresh cut. A good hair trim is a perfect way to redefine the new you on National Hair Day. A new haircut can do a lot of amazing things if done right! And even if you find a haircut daunting, the truth is – you can go for as little of a trim as you like to freshen up your existing look. Regardless of what type of haircut you choose, it is a great time to cut off dead ends and bring your hair back to life.

Sometimes, less is more! A face-framing trim is always a good way to accentuate your facial shape and personality, which ultimately gives you a more attractive look. Guess what? Hairstylists are specifically trained to know what haircut will compliment your facial shapes and features, so look up your favorite hairstyles and select a few pictures for the next salon appointment – your hairstylist will certainly appreciate the effort.

3. Experiment with a New Bold Hair Color

Ever wonder what you’d look like with other hair colors? If you always find yourself itching to change up your hair color, but don’t want to go for the full-on transformation, perhaps balayage or low-lights are the best options for you!

In last week’s blog, we shared with you our Top 5 Fall Hair Colors for 2020, and balayage was one of the key characters. Rightly so! The greatest thing about balayage is that it works for all hair colors that give a natural and blended look by complementing your base hair color. Low-lights are also incredibly versatile. They deepen your natural hair color and further add dimensions and volume to your strands.

4. Repair Sun-damaged Hair

After a long summer of sunshine and tan lines, we all need to rejuvenate our hair heading into the fall season. Regardless of hair type and color, if your hair has prolonged exposure to the sun, the UV rays can weaken your hair cuticle and keratin, resulting in dry strands, split ends, and even frizzy hair!

Well-conditioned hair is everything in this new season. We suggest using hair products and conditioners adjusted to your hair type and color. The good news is – you can bring back your healthy hair with our favorite Iles Formula Hair Mask, a life-restoring miracle for damaged hair, regardless of the type. Enriched with Macrobola Seed Oil and Tucuma Seed Butter, it deeply moisturizes every hair strand and gives silky smooth softness, helping your hair withstand breakage and dryness. This award-winning mask is also vitamin-infused ensuring a healthy flake-free scalp. Its the feature in the Iles Formula Spa Pack.

5. Try an Adventurous Hairstyle

There is nothing quite as exhilarating as getting a hair transformation. If you’re feeling adventurous, we are here to share with you some chic and fun hairstyles to spice it up on this very special National Hair Day.

Bangs is a good low-risk option if you’re looking for something cute and subtle. If you’re looking for a change to your hairstyle that is low-commitment, try introducing a new styling element to your hair! There’s nothing bolder than adding a fringe to your effortlessly chic haircut. Not only does it naturally flatter all face types and features, it also highlights your youthful charm and adds a touch of feminine edge to your hairstyle. Sideswept bangs, baby bangs, chopping bangs, Birkin bangs, or full blunt bangs. Just pick one and try it out!

Not to mention how versatile the styling of bangs can be – you can either sweep your bangs to a side of your choice, clip them back, wear a normal front fringe, or even pop them back. Even if you end up not loving the look, the bangs will quickly grow out. The options for what you can do are endless!

Time to make an appointment with your hairstylist and take the plunge! Don’t forget to share your beautiful transformation with us by tagging us on social media @ilesformula_hair and #IlesFormula! We can’t wait to see the ways you’re celebrating National Hair Day <3

P.S. Here’s a fun fact about hair for you! You know when you comb your hair, and you see plenty of loose hair strands? That’s totally normal. After all, the average person sheds between 40 and 150 strands of hair a day!
