She's A Look: Chantelle Steinke
Updated: Nov 10
With Covid prompting everyone to make shifts within their craft, beauty industry professionals master the art of creative solutions. Chantelle stands out from the crowd because of her ongoing investment into herself through improving skill sets, both personally and professionally. Here, she shares FOUR PRODUCTS that are a must-have for this fall/winter season.
Oh 2020, where do we even begin? It sure has been quite the doozy, if you ask me. With time seeming to race by, it's easy to forget about ourselves and what we need to feel our best.
As a hairstylist, I've been lucky enough to make a career on just that, helping others to feel their best inside and out! These last several months have given the beauty industry some pretty huge opportunities to pivot. It's allowed for change an appreciation for our businesses and the ability to really hone in on what we want.
Client interactions have shifted, especially with new clients. Without social media, I wouldn't know what most people look like without the mask! We also can't rely on reading lips when we talk, so we have to pay extra attention. With that being said, I try to keep a great mindset and have as much gratitude for each and every client that sits in my chair.
Educating my clients on at home hair care is a large part of being their stylist, and I believe it is THE most important part of having and maintaining good, healthy and resilient hair.
OK. Here are FOUR PRODUCTS that I believe everyone NEEDS on their counters at home. These should be recommended and purchased from your stylist, as we know what's best for your locks - plus this helps support our small businesses.
Quality Conditioner :These help with the overall inefficient and health of your scalp and hair, creating a strong foundation to grow.
Leave-in Conditioner: This is going to control frizz, add in moisture and assist in styling.
Heat Protectant: So important! You must protect your hair from external heat. This would be blow drying, hot tool styling and even from the sun.
If you're going to invest in your cut & color then you must also keep it looking and feeling 100%.
So, now that we know what to use to keep our hair healthy and easy to care for, what is this Fall looking like style wise?
With all of our lives going a little differently lately, from adjusting to a crazy new schedule to dealing with new stressors, people are wanting low maintenance and effortless styles. Well, we're all in luck! That's exactly where the trends have been leaning. Easy, casual and lived in looks that can be done in minutes and keep you in the salon less often.
•Colors have a fresh, soft and customizable feel. Bringing out brightness where we need it and leaving us with a smooth grow out.
- Balayage blondes & sun kissed warm brunettes
- Seasonal tones for a subtle change and a fresh feel
•Styles are more natural, textured and timeless. It's easy to stay current without having to struggle or stress.
- loose waves
- effortless pony tails
- bed head with purpose
I feel like this year has given us all the chance to be ourselves. So whatever your beauty routine is or what you wish is could be, do it for YOU and make yourself feel your best!
