Salon Elite owner and stylist shares hair tips and products

Winter, especially Minnesotan winter, brings with it not only below freezing temperatures, but also a heap of beauty problems including dry and frizzy hair. Owner and stylist Nikki Schmidt of Salon Elite recommends combating dry hair by shampooing less often and using dry shampoo if necessary.

“Our favorite? Moroccanoil Dry Shampoo, offered in light or dark tones to match your color needs,” she says. To avoid static, Schmidt recommends a leave-in conditioner like Oribe Supershine Moisturizing Cream. Before you run out of the house with wet hair, think again. “This can cause breakage and color fading,” she says.
