A common problem for fine, especially sparse density, hair textures is lack of structure, volume, and texture. Hair more often than not goes flat or limp quickly after styling and won’t hold its style throughout the day. How to solve it?
Philip Pelusi Product Problem Solver: P2 by Philip Pelusi Increase Smart Styling Treatment
What It Does: This high-tech texture building styling product and leave-in treatment is totally unique in that it works from inside the hair fiber instead of coating the outside like traditional gels and holding products.
Instead, P2 Increase dramatically increases volume, style ability and longevity while leaving hair feeling natural and looking modern. Best on fine, limp, lifeless hair but can be used by anyone who wants bigger, fuller, thicker feeling hair.
Key Ingredients: No crispy exterior coatings, P2 Increase contains Philip’s proprietary big science plant derived microemulsions that embed deep into the hair fiber changing the way hair performs and feels from the inside, building crisp texture, increasing volume and shine as well as providing heat, color, and UV protection.
How To Apply: Apply a pea to nickel size to clean damp hair from root to end. And if desired top with another Philip Pelusi styling product. Then air, diffuse or blow dry to desired style.
Philip, tell us about your first Philip Pelusi Salon?
“While I was in beauty school, I worked at a salon in Shadyside doing towels and shampooing. Guests would request my shampoos and I specialized in hair treatments and scalp massage. I worked there the whole time I was in beauty school for tips and income and to become comfortable in a salon environment.”
“After I graduated, my first job was at the SAKS Fifth Ave Salon in downtown Pittsburgh. I was the only Designer ever hired at this prestigious salon right out of Beauty School. I loved working with clients, everything about the salon/guest experience but I knew I wanted more and had a vision of what I wanted the guest visit to look like, so I opened my first salon. I wanted to create, not only beautiful hair, but a beautiful business for myself and everyone on my team. And our journey continues today!” Philip Pelusi
How did your career as a stylist and salon owner get started Philip?
“I dropped out of high school to work as sheet metal worker. I respected the value of a hard day’s work and earning a paycheck. I also knew I wanted to do something creative, perhaps in fashion I thought. Then started attending Pittsburgh Beauty Academy and on my first week I knew I found my calling. I sold my car to pay for beauty school and started on this exciting journey. I opened my first salon at the tender age of 20 and still love every minute. I still have something to say, create and be, so our journey continues!” Philip Pelusi

Andrea shares… “One of my longtime guests Heidi at Westmoreland purchased Tela Magic Hair Transformer for the first time last visit. Today she came to her appointment raving about her results and experience using this product at home over the past 6 weeks. Heidi has naturally curly hair and is a faithful user of Tela products and wanted to share her excitement with our new product Magic!”
Her Guest Heidi shares… “After using Magic daily, I noticed my hair had bouncier curls and increased shine. Many people started making comments about how great my curls looked over the next three weeks after my color appointment! The only thing I did differently was add one pump of Magic to my regular regimen of Curl of my Dreams and Healer. I apply my products to wet hair after washing with Tela Curly Shampoo and Conditioner each morning. Ultimately, I noticed my color lasting longer than normal. I love the Tela products because they make my curls look great! Thank you Philip Pelusi for taking the time to make these amazing products!”
