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!

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.

Be the hottie you are this Holiday. Check out these trends!

Whether you are a trend-setter or more of the classic type, this holiday, there are plenty of great trends to keep you looking fabulous for the Holidays! These trends are sure to make you the envy at every party and event you attend this holiday season. So read up.  Take these trends from us.  It’s what we do – and, a little gift just for you.

HAIR


IT’S ALL ABOUT THE COLOR RED
If you have been looking for a change with your hair color for the Holiday, RED is the way to go.  From the runways in New York, Paris and Japan, RED is everywhere and we don’t see it fading any time soon! Go big, go bold and go RED for the Holidays! We recommend our new color line Essensity to achieve rich red and burgundy hues.







HOLLYWOOD GLAMOUR STYLES

Just because you aren’t walking the red carpet doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel as if you are. Hollywood Glamour is a forever classic look and a simple way to make a great dress AMAZING! This is an ideal style if you are looking to soften your shoulders in a strapless dress. Feel as if you are going to be walking the red carpet when you leave any Charles Penzone Salon after a Special Event Style.  When done by the pros, this type of look is sure to last all night! 








SIMPLE & SLEEK STYLES

Just because the Holidays are often busy and big doesn’t mean your look has to be. Whether you have long or short hair, simple and sleek is a great look that can transfer from day to night when paired with the right haircut and color. To discover your simple and sleek look, first start by coming in to see us for an incredible haircut and color.  When you start with a great foundation, the sleek look really can be simple! 





MAKEUP

BOLD BROWS
Dark, dramatic and full eyebrows are taking center stage this season. We started to see trends of this in the fall, but plan on this look sticking around through winter, too. To help get this look, let your brows grow in a bit to give them a thicker, more defined look. This sounds scary, but just be sure to schedule your eyebrow arch appointment with your favorite Charles Penzone esthetician to achieve the perfect shape.

To help maintain your new bold brows, consider taking home our Youngblood Artiste.



INTENSE EYES
Who says that once you start to grow up you have to stay away from glitter?! This holiday, hues of gold, silver, bronze and gunmetal gray are the colors to embrace for that trend-right Holiday look. If a classic look is more your style don’t be shy, after all, the holidays only come once a year be sure to play up your eyes and embrace these colors! Finish any of these looks with a set of flirty faux lashes.  You really can't go wrong!

To make getting ready for those holiday parties worry-free, schedule a Makeup Lesson & Application to learn which hue is best for you. Better yet, leave the trouble to our team and pamper yourself with a Airbrush Makeup Application.  Your skin will have a dewy, sexy glow that will last all night!



LOVELY LIPS
The key to making any style look finished is the perfect lip color! Put the finishing touch on your look with RED lips, a sure fire way to ring in the holidays with a kiss. For those that are bold, consider going for a rich colored lipstick like Vixen by Youngblood followed with a high shine lipgloss. For those that want a more flirty lip, consider Kranberry by Youngblood or a tinted lip balm.
