Grow Healthy Luscious Locks

Jennifer Aniston

How do you get shiny, long, luscious locks?

It’s a question that most women we know ask themselves regularly.

Renowned haircolourist to the stars, Michael Canale, known for natural, healthy, lustrous hair colour, Michael shares his secrets for helping hair grow and transforming hair to become shiny, healthy and luminescent.

Lives of Style: Everyone wants to know what’s the best way to get hair to grow? What’s the process?

Michael: Eating properly, living a balanced lifestyle. By ensuring your diet is balanced you’ll get enough nutrients to have healthy hair.

Check out my new vitamin line, Replenish. I made my vegan vitamin line out of super foods, which support healthy hair. If you are lacking in nutrients your hair is going to suffer and my products supply my clients with nutrients and vitamins that stimulate the hair to it’s fullest.

I also recently launched Replenish Boost, which is organic spirulina, and works in conjunction with Replenish to support strong, thick, vibrant hair.

We have a lot of people writing in that their hair is getting stronger and longer faster.

Lives of Style: Jennier Aniston, a long-time client of yours, has talked about using vitamins including “blue-green algae” even dating back to 2001. Did you suggest to her to use these vitamins when she wanted to grow her hair longer after cutting it off?

Michael: Replenish is a vitamin line I made 17 years ago and now I’ve re-made it to the the highest quality with cellular absorption. I had a doctor make it for me from Medical Targeted Pharma.

I went to the Sikh’s in LA early in my career, finding out information about how they grew their hair. Sikh’s believe hair is the antennae to God and their belief is to allow one’s hair to grow naturally out of respect for the perfection of God’s creation. They use blue green algae or spirulina. I then began researching the nutrient and saw how it helps create strong, shiny hair. And I provide the purest form of the nutrients that is available, being 100% vegan and gluten free.

Hair is a byproduct of what we consume and we have developed nutrients which, when accumulated , produce healthy hair. I advise my clients to take one capsule a day for 10 days and then double the dose.

Jennifer Aniston —Glorious, Fit & Fabulous at 50–Tips You Can Use from Her Celebrity Colorist

Screen Shot 2019-02-25 at 5.21.54 PM

Jennifer Aniston just turned 50 and she looks better than ever.

Aniston recently celebrated her star-studded birthday in style with friends including Reese Witherspoon, George and Amal Clooney, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson and more.. And even ex-husband, Brad Pitt joined in the celebration.

Aniston showed off her signature golden locks and flawless figure in a sleeveless black romper

Aniston is starring in a new TV role—as a newscaster—in a new show for Apple, also starring Reese Witherspoon.

The drama is “built around a morning TV show in the style of Today and Good Morning America,” and has already been bought for two 10-episode seasons, according to the The New York Times.

Aniston—ever chic, sophisticated and always stylish, is an icon for aspirational women everywhere. For her newscaster role, Aniston’s Celebrity Master Colorist—Michael Canale, created a new look for the star.

Lives of Style: How did you plan to work on Jennifer Aniston’s color?

Michael: Prior to filming I started moving Jennifer’s color so that it would be perfect for her new TV series. It’s “Old School Michael Canale” color – a very sophisticated look but still sexy.

Lives of Style: Did you work with Chris McMillan on the look?

Michael: I do whatever the cutter wants. Chris McMillan wanted Old School Canale techniques. Paper-thin highlights and popped out highlights. The whole front is popped out and it goes back two inches. The color frames her face so that her hair looks sun-kissed at all times of the day.

Lives of Style: You also have a new gloss, did you use it on Aniston?

Michael: Yes, we used the new Canale at-home blue gloss that takes the yellow out. Jennifer has sandy blonde hair so the blue gloss is perfect for her hair. It lasts for 20 shampoos and also provides a UV block.

You let it sit on the hair for three minutes. The gloss adds shine and reduces frizz, making hair healthy and easy to manage. And it’s Keratin-safe.

After that first shampoo you still have 19 left.

And Soften Plus is coming up too. It adds shine and reduces frizz. It makes hair healthy and easy to manage. Keratin-safe.

King Karl Lagerfeld—one of the world’s  greatest designers ever—has died. A multi-talented genius, Lagerfeld created his own oeuvre—built on the structure of the House of Chanel, but going multiverses beyond it—into a creative cosmos he alone imagined. He did the same for FENDI, and his own, eponymous collection. He brought light and imagination to everything he touched. He was a friend to our friends. He will be mourned. And missed.

Get Bright and Beautiful Hair this Fall

Carolyn Murphy

Lives of Style’s Monday with Michael ™ ©2018, provides expert advice on hair color, styling, care and conditioning—for a more beautiful YOU.

Our Lives of Style Authority: Master Colorist to the Stars: Michael Canale–in the business for over 30 years, is renowned for creating natural sun-streaked hair and classic blonde shades that get raves.

One of Hollywood’s most sought-after colorists, Canale’s clients have included movie star royalty like Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Heidi Klum, Carolyn Murphy, Carmen Electra, Denise Richards and more.

Canale is a staple on Allure’s “Best of the Best” as a superior hair colorist who “lightens blondes to a baby-like perfection.”

Most people think that you shouldn’t brighten up your hair in the fall and winter months. Canale sets the record straight.  

Lives of Style: Do you suggest to your celebrity clients to brighten up their hair colour in the winter?

Michael: It’s a fallacy to let your hair go dull during the dismal times of the year.  So always brighten up your hair.

Lives of Style: How bright should you make it?

Michael: You can make it subtle. You wouldn’t make it a California blonde but you can subtly “cheer” up your hair. The best way to do this is to do paper thin highlights.  They lighten and illuminate your look.

Try it and let us know how it works for you!

Jennifer Aniston Loves the Sun and It Shows in Her Golden Locks

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston is a golden girl—Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress, producer and businesswoman has a gilded touch.

It’s fitting that Aniston loves the sun and it’s evident in her golden locks. Celebrity Master Colorist, Michael Canale creates a bespoke natural blonde color that shines like the sun, bringing out Aniston’s beautiful blue eyes.

Canale just created Old School Michael Canale color—as requested by Chris McMillan, to put that Canale touch on to her hair.

Canale notes that the sun is also a natural bleaching agent—and it helps stop oxidation, as well
as being the mildest bleaching agent.

Glosses also have UV protection and tones—including light blue, gold and clear. Canale said, “I use light blue on Jennifer to keep her hair in the sandy color range.”

Canale created new oils that clients apply as finishing products—as they have a calming effect on the hair. The great news is that oils have don’t weigh hair down and have the ability to provide moisture and deliver anti-frizz results.

To help prevent summer chlorine damage, Canale suggests applying oil to the hair and braiding it before taking a dip in the pool and also using a special gloss for your hair—which he does for Aniston, which prevents fading and oxidation.

Kate Hudson’s Golden Pregnancy Safe Make-Over

Kate Hudson

American Sweetheart—Kate Hudson, actress, businesswoman and mother to two (with one on the way), is known for her prodigious talent, relatability, fashion-forward style and gorgeous locks.

Our Lives of Style Authority: Master Colorist to the Stars: Michael Canale recently worked with Kate to create a trend-worthy look, which brings out her gorgeous face and has the added benefit of being “baby safe.” Michael proves that your hair color can still look fabulous—even when you’re pregnant.

Canale–in the business for over 30 years, is renowned for creating natural sun-streaked hair and classic blonde shades that get raves. One of Hollywood’s most sought-after colorists, Canale’s clients have included movie star royalty like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Heidi Klum, Carolyn Murphy, Carmen Electra, Denise Richards and more.

Lives of Style: What did you design for Kate Hudson’s hair color?:

Michael: I took care of Kate because she is pregnant, so no base color and only highlights—with a special gloss to make it look shiny. I did my signature “Canale” natural color with proper blending, using paper-thin highlights. Her hair is short and growing out so I colored it to look good as it grows out. I popped her whole head with a bespoke placement of highlights so she can part it anywhere—giving her hair movement, while looking natural and sun kissed.

Lives of Style: What would you call the hue you created?

Michael: She had three inches of dark blonde roots with blonde tips and we connected the tips to make it look blonder. So we pulled her hair color to a baby blonde – the lightest of golds: when it’s wet it has a golden cast and it is brighter when dry—It brings out her blue eye color.

Lives of Style: What do you do differently when working with clients who are pregnant?

Michael: When you’re pregnant you can do highlights as long as you don’t breathe the fumes, and you don’t want to place any bleach on the scalp. Tints are placed on the scalp so we avoid them. We don’t like to do color until after the 2ndtrimester. You can do a bleach wash or a color bath – but avoid fumes. Kate used a magazine to fan herself.

And remember, if you’re pregnant don’t’ be around Brazilian blowouts or keratin treatments.

Great Hair for a More Beautiful You

Carolyn Murphy

Lives of Style’s Monday with Michael ™ ©2018, provides expert advice on hair colour, styling, care and conditioning—for a more beautiful YOU.

Our Lives of Style Authority: Master Colourist to the Stars: Michael Canale–in the business for over 30 years, is renowned for creating natural sun-streaked hair and classic blonde shades that get raves.

One of Hollywood’s most sought-after colourists, Canale’s clients have included movie star royalty like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Heidi Klum, Carolyn Murphy, Carmen Electra, Denise Richards and more.

Canale is a staple on Allure’s “Best of the Best” as a superior hair colourist who “lightens blondes to a baby-like perfection.”

Summer is quickly approaching and keeping your hair healthy, vibrant and shiny is an attainable goal with these few quick conditioning tips from Canale.

Lives of Style: If you color your hair do you need a deep treatment?

Michael: You should always try to replace what color takes away from hair shaft. And one thing to remember is that the sun is a natural bleaching agent. So I created my line to preserve hair colour.

Lives of Style: Do you recommend to your clients to use your conditioner: “Soften,” as a deep conditioning treatment?

Michael: You can use Soften as a deep conditioning treatment. It promotes shine and reduces oxidation due to all of the anti-oxidants in the conditioner. Hair gets shinier after using my products. You would leave the conditioner on an extra five minutes. It works instantaneously to rebuild the hair shaft from the outside in.

Lives of Style: How can you use your products for maximum health?

Michael: I suggest using Nourish–my vitamin foam, once or twice a week and Soften should be used daily. The vitamin foam also works on the hair from the inside out, improving fullness, cuticle health and strength. Since it swells the hair shaft it also produces shiny healthy hair and can be used as a finishing conditioner.

Perfect Your Hair Color

Lives of Style’s Monday with Michael ™ ©2018, provides expert advice on hair colour, styling, care and conditioning—for a more beautiful YOU.

Our Lives of Style Authority: Master Colourist to the Stars: Michael Canale–in the business for over 30 years, is renowned for creating natural sun-streaked hair and classic blonde shades that get raves.

One of Hollywood’s most sought-after colourists, Canale’s clients have included movie star royalty like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Heidi Klum, Carolyn Murphy, Carmen Electra, Denise Richards and more.

Canale is a staple on Allure’s “Best of the Best” as a superior hair colourist who “lightens blondes to a baby-like perfection.”

Lives of Style: Do you change your clients color for summer? 

Michael: Yes, you can move your color for the season.  The looks I am creating are summer worthy. I start moving my clients into summer colors in the middle of spring. It is a natural blonding effect.

Lives of Style: What are the hottest hair color trends for the season?

Michael: For spring and summer, I give my clients more pop around the face and then use the sun to work with us to remove the oxidation. A lot of hair cannot handle us pulling bleach through to the ends so we use the sun to remove the dullness of oxidation. It is a gradual lightening to get you into a position where your ends lightened by the sun so your hair doesn’t break off and it looks great.

To get sun kissed ends, you can put your hair up in a ponytail at the top of your head so that the tips are open to the sun. Since the ends are exposed they will lighten and you won’t have to run bleach through your entire hair. Ensure you put sunblock on your face and then just go for a walk on the beach.

I also use other techniques in the salon exclusively by my staff, which remove oxidation without damage but you cannot do this yourself.  Our goal is natural, perfect sun kissed color and healthy hair.

How to Get Perfect Blonde Locks

Carolyn Murphy

Lives of Style’s Monday with Michael ™ ©2018, provides expert advice on hair colour, styling, care and conditioning—for a more beautiful YOU.

Our Lives of Style Authority: Master Colourist to the Stars: Michael Canale–in the business for over 30 years, is renowned for creating natural sun-streaked hair and classic blonde shades that get raves.

One of Hollywood’s most sought-after colourists, Canale’s clients have included movie star royalty like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Heidi Klum, Carolyn Murphy, Carmen Electra, Denise Richards and more.

Canale is a staple on Allure’s “Best of the Best” as a superior hair colourist who “lightens blondes to a baby-like perfection.”

Lives of Style:  If a new client comes to you and she has gone overboard with her hair color and it is now too brassy, how can you tone it down?

Michael:  To solve that problem, I would use a color bath. Since Canale Salon is known for correction, brassiness can only be corrected permanently by removing it.  Highlights are the best correction and then it is essential to tone it properly.  I am known for creating the “color bath,” a permanent blending technique that allows me to control the color. It’s a specific mix that I personalize for each client so everyone gets a bespoke color. It was one of my first correctional color techniques that I made mainstream. We do this after the highlights.  Then you will have beautiful looking hair.

Lives of Style:  If a new client wants to go blonde, how do you decide what a good blonde would look like on her?

Michael: A lot of women want to brighten up their hair color in time for Spring–now that the sun is out and the weather is warmer.  The way to go blonde with the best possible results is to start going blonde and every time I highlight I move the color blonder until I get our desired “blonde” look.  My technique makes my clients hair color look more blended from root to end, darker to lighter and it shouldn’t be done in one process.  I don’t want to damage my client’s hair by over coloring so we move our clients in stages to reach that perfect blonde.

Engaged? Find Out How and When to Get the Perfect Hair Colour for Your Big Day

Bridal Wedding Hair

Lives of Style’s Monday with Michael ™ ©2018, provides expert advice on hair colour, styling, care and conditioning—for a more beautiful YOU.

Our Lives of Style Authority: Master Colourist to the Stars: Michael Canale–in the business for over 30 years, is renowned for creating natural sun-streaked hair and classic blonde shades that get raves.

One of Hollywood’s most sought-after colourists, Canale’s clients have included movie star royalty like Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Heidi Klum, Carolyn Murphy, Carmen Electra, Denise Richards and more.

Canale is a staple on Allure’s “Best of the Best” as a superior hair colourist who “lightens blondes to a baby-like perfection.”

Is now the right time to start planning for your wedding hair?  You might have just gotten engaged and you think the dress is the first thing you need to decide upon—you might be mistaken in your priorities.  You may think it’s too early to start planning for your September wedding but Celebrity Colourist Michael Canale suggests starting focusing on your colour now.

Lives of Style: When do you start working with clients who are planning for their Big Day?

Michael: About six to nine months before a wedding. It’s important to meet with my client and their stylist so that we can start moving colour. It’s especially important if you are a brunette and want to go blonde. Then, after you have picked your dress we can talk about how you want to wear your hair. And I adjust the colour to the hairstyle.

Lives of Style: What is the process like?

Michael: Usually my clients want to go blonder – 90% want to go lighter – and most brunettes want accent highlighting for movement and updo’s.  Six months before, I gradually move the colour to the hue that my clients desire. And two weeks before we do a final run through, they will show me a picture from their hair stylist’s trial run and then I will place the highlights accordingly so that the highlights perfectly accent their hair style.

Lives of Style: What type of accents do you do with highlighting?

Michael: I like do highlights around the face–and then, there is a certain style of highlighting for updos, or for enhancing hair if it is going to be worn down or in a side lift. It’s all tailored, so it is a couture look for the wedding.

Lives of Style: What do you suggest to keep a bride’s hair extra healthy and shiny when moving colour?

Michael: A lot of people like to use my vitamin line, Replenish, to prep for a wedding to get their hair strong and healthy. It is a new vegan approach that has all you need for healthy hair.  My vitamin foam, Nourish, is formulated with antioxidants and vitamins that promote natural hair growth and strengthens the integrity of the cuticle for stronger hair which improves the ability for the hair to hold colour. Also, using my conditioner, Soften, will help strengthen my clients hair as I move my clients colour getting ready for the wedding.  My conditioner is perfect for prepping highlights or maintaining the condition of the hair after colour treatment.
