Hair Guru Corrects Mistakes Grand Moms Make

On the occasion of Grandparent’s Day, hair guru Tony Galvez salutes grandmothers and great grandmothers, for hanging in there and modeling to everyone, especially their grandchildren, the rich rewards of a long life fully lived.

On this note, he addresses two of the most common mistakes among women in their senior years. One is tissing the hair reminiscent of the ‘50’s and ‘60’s hairstyles to achieve volume, this time for thinning hair- a normal occurrence as the scalp and hair matures with age. To minimize the onslaught of aging on hair, golden girls are advised to adopt wash and wear hairstyles that will do away with perming, setting or roller brushing that put more pressure on an already taut scalp that results to thinning hair.

The ‘cut and style’ strategy rather than the ‘shampoo and set’ will eliminate excessive exposure to extreme temperatures from hair dryers, hot combs and curling irons that can cause dehydrated scalp and hair structural damage. At the same time, use of gentle or mild shampoos, conditioners and styling aids would be wise. Gently massaging the scalp regularly with organic oil, such as the Tony Galvez signature organic oil made from extracts of herbal plants, would help too.

The other most popular mistake is coloring grey hair with black. Dark colors render aging features more sharp and older looking; light browns soften the face and make it look young. As much as possible, dye the hair completely only once a year using vegetable dyes, or tone on tone colors which are more gentle on the hair, or ammonia- free permanent tints for stronger grey coverage. Retouch the roots or regrowth areas only as the color fades to minimize damage to the hair and scalp. 

With these common mistakes corrected, Galvez pays tribute to the living legends that are our grandmothers with three legendary hairstyles layered and textured- ideal for thinning hair, needing only hair masque for volume. Pixie Crop is perfect for those with good cheekbones or oval faces who prefer versatile short hair that’s sharp and ready-to- wear. Textured Bob is sophisticated and sexy with its disconnected lengths and chipped ends. Funky Midlenght remains manageable with its long layers, uneven ends and one-sided bangs. 

Meanwhile, enrollment for 2nd semester is ongoing at TGSC for two-year hair specialization courses with diploma and transcript of records, regular certificate courses and one-on-one tutorials. At the same time, a 16-module cosmetology state board exam review based after American and European standards specially designed for those who need to take examination for licensure abroad is also being offered.
