Easy Date-Night Hair Ideas

Polished loop
This loop requires a little patience and a few pins, but it’s worth it. If you find yourself making plans for a lunch date or a straight-from-work event, “Natalie Portman’s style is professional, yet it allows him to see your face because it’s all swept back,” says hairstylist Tommy Buckett. Create a deep side part, then work a dime-size amount of hair gel through strands to the ends (try Bumble and Bumble Bb Gel), brushing it back into a low, tight ponytail. Separate the ponytail into two sections. Fold the lower section under itself, pinning the ends to the roots of the hair. Then wrap the top layer around the base of the ponytail and secure with pins.

Ombre Hair Color: The Hottest Color Trend!

Technically known as color melting, this look is when the root area is colored darker and color gradually lightens through the mid-shaft and ends.  It’s seen on celebrities and runways everywhere right now and can be very versatile for many personalities and styles.  A natural sun-kissed effect can be achieved with subtle color contrast between roots and ends.  Think just a couple shades lighter like Victoria’s Secret model Lily Aldridge here.  The higher the contrast, the bolder the look.  Gisele has more contrast right around the face for a more dramatic effect.  If you’re afraid to go all in, you can start with highlights done with the same melted effect.  Here’s Mila Kunis at the SAG awards sporting subtle ombre highlights.  Also, if the beautiful pictures weren’t enough to convince you yet, think about this:  since the contrast is gradual and not at the root, retouches are a breeze and you can go longer between color appointments.  What’s not to love?

DID YOU KNOW….

According to Leading Scientists the texture of your hair requires specific products!

Curly hair has twists and turns to it causing the cuticle to lift up making the hair rough and dry! Use Aveda’s “Be Curly” shampoo and conditioner, which has wheat proteins and moisturerizers in the right amount of combinations to strengthen and also keep moisture in the hair. Follow up with styling products, “Be Curly” Style Prep, which adds more moisture to the hair and defines curls while taming frizziness.   Cocktail “Be Curly” Curl Enhancer mixed with Confixor to create well defined curls that will hold all day long with shine and smoothness!

Fine hair has 50% less protein than coarse hair! That’s why fine hair is harder to style and goes limp.   For the person with fine hair,  Aveda’s Pure Abundance Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner  will plump the hair with natural ingredients and add protein as well.  Style with Aveda’s Volumizing Tonic and Phomollient which will keep those limp locks boosted all day long! Finish with Aveda’s Control Force to hold your lovely style and protect against humidity, giving you all day wear.   

Coarse hair has too much moisture and creates alot of frizz, which acts like a humidity magnet! This is a womans worst nightmare! I reccommend Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner to help smooth the hair without adding too much moisture to it. Prep hair with Aveda’s Smooth Infusion style prep, which will defend against humidity up to 12 hours. Follow up with Style products Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightner, which  straightens, polishes, and protects from heat damage. Finish with Air Control which is soft to touch and will control your style and silky smooth straight hair. (Not to mention it smells like heaven)

Color treated hair needs to be protected as well, not just from sulfates, which will fade color, but also from the environment! I reccommend Aveda’s Color Conserve shampoo and conditoner which will protect your color from fading faster and also has UVA and UVB blockers to protect your hair from the sun’s rays which can be a fresh color killer. Color treated hair tends to be more porous which will wash away color faster and break easier, so I reccommend using Aveda’s Color Conserve Strengthing Treatment at least once a week to help illuminate your color and protect against breakage up to 87%! This a home treatment that when used in addition with a glossing treatment after coloring, will restore your hair and give it a new protective outer layer to keep it from dulling your beautiful new color!

For additional tips and tricks, call and schedule an appointment with one of our educated and professional hair stylists! Not only will you be wowed and amazed, you”ll be given a wonderful pampering treatment during your visit! Who doesn’t deserve that?!

Simply Beautiful….. and Simple

This is a perfect example of when less is more. For any lady who has ever struggled with a daytime makeup application, this is your savior! With just a few tools you can make your face look refreshed and pretty all day. I personally think these should be in every gals makeup bag. A soft pink gloss, bronzer/soft pink blush, mascara, and an iridescent cream will take just minutes to apply and is super easy for touch ups! Apply a little bronzer anywhere that the sun would naturally hit your face and a cream in the corner of your eyes to open them up, now some color to your lips and lengthening mascara will finish this off. Try it out and see how easy and fun this is!
My picks: Pink Lotus Rehydrating Lip Glaze, Uruku Bronzing Kit, Aurora Petal Essence Eye Color all by Aveda
