Lets face it, the wrong hair color can make you look tired, older, or even unhealthy. But the right cut and color can make you look younger and slimmer and can even appear to alter the shape of your face. Identifying the tones in your skin should help your determine what tone to color your hair! Contrary to popular belief, you want to go with your natural tone. You do not want to try to "neutralize" yourself by doing the inverse of your skin tone on your hair, enhance your natural coloring!
Looking for inspiration for an up coming formal event? Graduations, Weddings, Reunions all require an elite presentation of yourself. Showing off your new summer look has never been so easy thanks to this year’s Cannes Film festival. We are going to give you a run down on our favorite looks from 2015:
Lots of natural, minimum make up looks on our favorite blondes. Cate Blanchett, Diane Kruger, Melanie Lauren. This "natural" look was very popular this year. The 70's influence this season brings forth more relaxed looks.
Woah, Amy Poehler! Debuting the new copper color with some winged liner! Totally killing it!
Salma Hayek rocking balayage highlights! That color purple does excellent things for her!
Can we just say it? Who is this guy ruining Charlize's picture? What the hell is she thinking? I also do not like this shade of yellow and fabric combo, it is not very flattering.
Summer is almost here and its time to make one the most defining hair decisions of the year. The summer chop. Now, It does make more sense to have shorter hair in the summer because of the heat and ease. But is it worth the year long struggle to grow out your hair?
When you think of your dream summer hair, I am willing to bet its somewhere along the lines of long, layered, wavy "beachiness". However, as much as we would all love to have Victoria's Secret beach hair, we should begin to take into consideration all of the extensions and photo editing that goes into the models hair. Naturally, your long hair is not going to style itself sexy. Its going to be long, hot and sticky from the humidity. Realistically long hair is going to require a lot more styling time, unless your just going to pony tail it everyday (no one should ever make the pony tail an everyday thing). Also, pulling your hair up can be extremely damaging and cause a lot of breakage.
Summer is a great time to go short because of the ease and low everyday maintenance. Super cute long bobs are in right now, along with lots of fun texturing and fringe to the shorter bob. Short haircuts can bring out waves and curls within the hair because they are not as heavy. Don't forget the new Robin Wright look that has become quite popular thanks to the Netflix series "House of Cards", whats easier than a pixie? Summer is also a great time to go short because you tend to have a healthy glow from the sun and you' re toned and looking beach ready. Short hair will draw more attention to your pretty face and show off your summer bod with style.

MYTH: You can’t color your hair while pregnant.
Maternal-Fetal Medicine Specialist Cynthia Gyamfi-Bannerman, MD, at New York Presbyterian Hospital told us its safe to color your hair during pregnancy. “Older dyes were formaldehyde-base. While it is difficult to find these nowadays, they should be avoided.” said said.
“The period of Organogenesis (the initial formation of all the baby's organs) is generally completed by about 10 weeks gestation, which is why some people suggest waiting until outside of the first trimester if you want to use color or other chemicals. There is very little that gets absorbed into the maternal blood stream” She clarified. Dr. Gyamfi-Bannerman recommends getting your hair colored by a professional to avoid unnecessary contact with chemicals and good enviromental ventilation.
MYTH: Shaving makes the hair grow back thicker and darker?
No — shaving hair doesn't change its thickness, color or rate of growth.
Shaving facial or body hair gives the hair a blunt tip. The tip might feel coarse or "stubbly" for a time as it grows out. During this phase, the hair might be more noticeable and perhaps appear darker or thicker — but it's not.
Waxing is a great alternative to shaving because it helps equalize the cycle of hair growth! Waxing removes hair from the root which results in hair-free skin for weeks. It leaves the skin feelings soft even if you touch it against the hair growth. Plus, waxing will eventually reduce hair growth!
MYTH: Lemon Juice will lighten your locks.
Lemon Juice is citric acid, and when it heats up in the sunshine, it opens the hair cuticles, lifts out some the color pigment and can result in lighter looking streaks.
Of course on the downside, you’re probably going to end up with dry and tangled hair. EVEN after washing and conditioning! Also, the color will probably be blotchy or lack in continuity because it was not applied by a professional. And more than likely, you’re not ending up with a pretty blonde- you’re getting a really BRIGHT orange color! That's because, chemically, citric acid is not as strong or controlled as actual hair color, which is needed to get the desire blonde highlight.
Look for next weeks post when we start experimenting with popular hair growth myths!
Thanks to LC, Jen Anniston and of course the Kardashain Krew-- grown out is in. Dark roots complimented by beautiful highlights are everywhere we look this season. A more relaxed version of last summer's ombre, the trend is adding a bit of glamour to a natural look. And by glamour, yes we mean balayage.
Balayage is a French highlighting technique that mimic natural highlights from the sun. The balayage highlight never fully touches the scalp and usually are applied in various heights, making a line of demarcation impossible. When applying, the product is swept onto the hair creating a gentle fade of color.
Now obviously sweeping light color through the ends of the hair toward the top creates an ombre style, but we use balayage for partial and full highlights as well. Balayage, rather than foil highlights, tend to look more sunkissed and not so repetitive-- also WAY lower maintenance. Most Balayage clients come to the salon maximum three times a year! Balayage is a great way to spice up a summer look without completely changing your hair identity. An ideal hair trend for anyone with a fashion sense living on a budget.
