CARMEL A word of advice from a local stylist for those getting tired of the shaggy dog look or emerging ombre hair coloring:

I tell my clients, just wear a hat! says Gwendolyn Beauregard of Heidis Studio in Carmel.

Salons have been deemed unessential businesses and are closed until further notice, so most people are on their own when it comes to maintaining their hairstyles. Since the Monterey County stay-at-home order was issued in March, people have been getting creative with their newfound free time.

Hiovanni Gonzalez, a 22-year-old CSU Monterey Bay student, chose to dye her hair hot pink as well as give it a trim while self-quarantining.

I was in need of some change, she says. Ive dyed my hair crazy colors before, and I figured now would be a better time than ever since Id be in the house most of the time.

Gonzalez recommends others to try changing up their hairstyle while at home because hair grows back, and you can always change (the color) back if you dont like it.

Hot pink may not be for everyone, so others are choosing to maintain their usual color. Local business owner, Roshi Pejhan, touched up her hairstyle with some color to cover up any greys and to take a moment for herself.

Even though no one is really going to see it, it feels like an important part of self-care if it helps you feel better about yourself, states Pejhan. What self-care is for me might be different for others, but the hair color is one small thing I can do to make me feel better.

Although she went the hair color route, Pejhan doesnt plan to cut or trim her hair from home.

Some people really want to try cutting their hair at home, but I feel more comfortable letting a professional do it.

Beauregard and other stylists are receiving requests to provide hair services at clients homes, but she plans to stay at home as directed until it is safe to go back to work.

Itd be nice to have your hair done, but I dont really think that its an essential, she states. I havent seen any bad haircuts so far, and dark roots are fashionable right now.

If you plan to follow in Gonzalez and Pejhans footsteps, they have offered some pro-tips to help achieve your desired look.

Gonzalezs hair dye tips are to be very careful if youre using bleach, so bleach your roots last since they dont take as long because if you leave it on for too long, it can leave blisters; apply vaseline on the perimeters of your face and base of the neck so the dye doesnt stain your skin; and try applying some kind of heat after your hair is wrapped to ensure the color really takes.

Pejhan recommends home remedies for dry ends that need trimming. I noticed my hair was getting dry so I just did a coconut oil treatment for a day. Just rubbed in my coconut oil, put my hair in a bun and let it set, rinsed it out the next day, and it made a big difference. She also says, Cranberry juice rinses are also good for brunettes if you dont have henna handy.

Hair professional, Beauregard suggests people reach out to their hairstylist. They can do their hair at home. Id be willing to tell someone what hair color to get.

She also knows of some fellow stylists that are sending clients premixed hair dye so they can achieve their salon look from home.

I know when we get back to work, well be really, really busy.
