Spring Hair Trends 2015

From smooth pony tales to gorgeous blowouts, boho waves, and just tasseled or braided locks, this Spring will be a relaxed breeze. In the past we've spent our time with perfect curls or just-right buns, but no longer! It's time to have fun with your hair.

If you have texture to your hair then work with it, boho waves are hot this year. The more lose and messy, the better. No more picture perfect curls- embrace the beauty of just letting you hair be itself.



If you have natural straight hair and want the boho waves, try braiding your hair in a very messy lose braid mist with a little water and wear this during the day as braids are still hot. Tomorrow, take it out, spray with a sea salt spray, and now you have your very own boho waves. That's a 2-in-1 look! My product reccomendation for this look is the Davines This Is A Salt Spray, sold in The Charles Penzone Salons.



Long /low sleek pony tales are also hot this year and can be transformed in many looks for the next few days. Wear your long low pony today, tomorrow twist and don't forget to mist your pony then wrap into a knotted bun. Wear this for a day or into a fun night out, then the next day let all this out and once again you have your messy locks! My product reccomendation for this style is to use the Alterna Cavier Anti-Aging Working Hairspray for that sleek, keep everything in place look. For second-day hair, I reccomend the Davines Hair Refresher, a great dry shampoo for that perfect second-day hair look. Both sold at all Charles Penzone Salons.



Blow outs are another welcome back trend all hairdressers are loving this spring, that leaves your hair in full bounce and gorgeous shine that is sure to make everyone stop. Stop by our salons and try the Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Blast for added volume.


        
  
Accessories are more then welcome. If you're feeling like your pony or bun needs a little something, add a fun head band or clip of any kind to jazz up your style. Fun, free, and easy is the way to go this Spring.

Mother Daughter Spa Day Participant Spotlight: Meet Rachel Barber

Rachel Barber will be attending Charles Penzone Salons' Mother Daughter Spa Day for the third year, and is really looking forward to that haircut and style!

Rachel, almost 16, was born with a disorder called Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB for short). EB is a skin disorder that makes Rachel's skin very fragile and causes blisters and wounds all over her body. EB is not contagious, but it will require Rachel to wear full body bandages to protect her skin and to promote healing. Despite having this debilitating disorder all her life, Rachel lives her life like a normal teenager. She is even in the process of getting her driver's license!


Get to know Rachel:

What hobbies do you have?
Rachel: Reading, listening to music, hanging out with my friends, and watching TV

What is your favorite class?
Rachel: Math

What inspires you?
Rachel: Music!

We're looking forward to seeing Rachel and her mother again in a few weeks!

Mother Daughter Spa Day Participant Spotlight: Meet Katy Ferris

Each year, we're fortunate enough to open our to young girls with life-threatening illnesses. Named "Mother Daughter Spa Day," this event serves as a time to pamper these strong survivors, accompanied by their mothers. This year we welcome back Katy Ferris.


Katy Ferris was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at  three and half years old, and received chemotherapy that resulted in losing her hair twice. When her hair grew back and was long enough to donate, she went to The Charles Penzone Salon at Polaris Parkway to get the cut. To this day, she says that it was a wonderful experience and she will always remember it.

                                                  

Katy is 18 years old, and recently graduated from Pickerington High School. She will attend Central Ohio Technical College and major in Web Design in August. This will be her third year attending Mother Daughter Spa Day and she looks forward to getting a pedicure every year. And, we can't wait to pamper her later this month!

The End of Winter Beauty Kit

Your winter boots have been replaced mid-season, you started taking vitamin D supplements, and you have finished three different television series on Netflix. That’s right, it’s March, it’s still Winter, and everyone is (still) miserable. “But it’s March” you say? We know, but Punxsutawney Phil DID predict six more weeks of Winter, so we’ve put together a snowmergency kit for some Winter hair and skin revival. We can see the light at the end of that tunnel we call Winter, and we’re going to see this season through looking fab.

A WINTER SKIN GUIDE

Winterproof your skin by doing this simple tasks below:

•    To ward off dryness, cleanse your face just once a day. We recommend doing a face cleanse at night, and a simple rinse in the morning.

•    Alcohol dries the skin, so during the cold months, keep products with high levels of alcohol on the shelf. Exfoliate your body and face only once a week with a gentle scrub or a washcloth.

•    Take short showers. Over-bathing can strip the body of its oh-so-important natural oils.

•    Moisturize! Lather up at least twice a day to combat dryness. The dryer the skin, the thicker the moisturizer.

Your Winter Look:
Jade, esthetician at MAX The Salon in the Short North, created this look to keep you looking bright using the Youngblood makeup line we carry in the salons.



Brighten up your eyes with a wash of Platinum show from the Starlet palette. Smudge black shadow or black kohl pencil along the top lash line for a sultry, sophisticated look. Finish this with a pop of color in the lips and cheeks. Try Youngblood gloss in Siren for a deep berry shine, and a Temptress pressed mineral blush.

AN END OF WINTER HAIR GUIDE
Keep your tresses in check by following a few pointers:
•    Shower less. Much like winter skin care, showering less keeps your hair hydrated and healthy.

•    Take a break from the heat. Avoid blow-drying your hair to avoid that static mess. Take it a step further, and avoid heat tools as a whole. Not only do they dry your hair out, but they can cause breakage.

•    Use a leave-in conditioner to lock moisture in. It truly is a great product for a quick fix!

•    Color your hair for the transitioning season! Have some fun with the end of winter/beginning of spring by changing your color up! Consider burgundy, reddish brown, or a fun ombre for starters!

Your end of winter hair product lineup. All products available for purchase in The Charles Penzone Family of Salons:

Davines MoMo Shampoo + Conditioner: Its particularly rich formula has been created to deeply moisturize dry, dehydrated hair, making it soft, silky and full of body without weighing it down.


Alterna Bamboo Luminous Shine Mist - A sheer styling mist that gives hair instant polish and shine for lackluster locks.



MOROCCANOIL® Intense Hydrating Mask- Great for dry, damaged, or thick hair, this hydrating mask contains oil–rich formulas to deeply hydrate and condition your hair, while dramatically improving hair’s texture, elasticity, shine and manageability.
