There is a legend that scissors were initially designed by Leonardo DaVinci, but archeologists have found similar instruments as far back in history as 1500 B.C., Egypt. That being said, it required 4,000 years to re-think and improve ordinary shears for hair cutting.

Bonne Vie: Our Hot Scissors Bring You Cool Styles

The design of the improvement might surprise you: heat! At Bonne Vie Salon, we cut hair with the latest 21st century styling tool, hot scissors.

This week, we spotlight this procedure, bringing you the latest trend in proper hair-cutting. By the way, we realize that everyone knows that a good hair cut is the essential foundation of a great style.

Bring You Cool Styles

As it states on our special website page, “Thermo-hair cutting in Orlando, FL can be done on any hair type, curly or straight, and every hair type benefits greatly. Our customers are so satisfied with their thermo haircuts that they never want go back to unheated, cold sheers!”

1. Cutting the hair with hot shears, smoothly and naturally seals the tip of the hair. This process will not only give you a beautiful cut, but it will control your split ends.

2. The hot blades cauterize the ends of the hair is so it is protected from environmental damage.

3. Many of you might have seen this type of cutting demonstrated on NBC by Russian hair stylist Arson Gurgov.

According to Allure magazine, “traditional scissors open the cuticle and leave the hair susceptible to environmental stress that can cause frizz and dryness. The heat from the hot scissors seals the end of the hair to trap in moisture and protect the hair from damage.”

4. At Bonne Vie Salon, we won’t burn you or your hair. The shears can be adjusted from about 270 degrees up to 310 degrees. As a rule, fine hair is cut with scissors set at a lower temperature, and coarse hair is cut at the higher end of the scale. Your trained stylist will know exactly what amount of heat to use, because at Bonne Vie, we realize every procedure must be individualized to the client.

5. As with any good cut, this is not a one-time treatment. You will want to maintain your trims, just as you would with cold-cutting.

6. Another fabulous feature of this futuristic styling tool is that your hair will have more apparent volume, bounce and body! No more raggedy ends! The texture and health of your hair seems to come to life.

A Bonne Vie Quick Tip!
We know that many of our clients will be sunning and swimming to celebrate the July Fourth Holiday. We have one unique and simple haircare tip you might not have ever considered! Before you enter the chlorinated water of a pool, wet your hair. Soaking it down will cause the hair to super-absorb the initial clean water, instead of the harsh chlorinated water! Stay tuned for more summer hair-care tips next week.

Our additional July 4 tips include staying hydrated, and driving safely! Emil and all the stylists and staff at Bonne Vie Salon wish their friends, clients and readers a fabulous Independence Day Week-end!

Underneath the family, fun, fireworks and Orlando excitement, we sincerely cherish living in the “home of the brave and the land of the free!”
