Spring has officially begun and the season’s new trends are in full motion! From the grunge/edgy styles, to natural parts, to matte textures- this spring has been dubbed the “off-duty/on-duty” hair season. The great thing about this season is that you can change things up. One day, your look can be effortless and simple. The next, you can play up your style with braids, stylish blowouts and accessories. Same goes with makeup! A fresh, flawless face is the first step, then bold brows, eyes and lips will help you be trend-on. Keep on reading to get all the ideas you’ll need to feel fabulous this Spring!
HAIR TRENDS SPRING 2013
1) MESSY WAVES (THE MINIMAL-EFFORT LOOK)
This season is all about on-the-go, minimal effort, low maintenance looks! OK, but in reality creating the look does require SOME effort and great products! Apply Philip Pelusi Liquid Mousse or Bamboo Whipped Mousse to damp hair and run it through with your fingers. Add a little Bamboo Boho Waves to finish your look.
2) THE UPDO
Updo hairstyles have an easy-going feel to them. From the runway to Hollywood, low knots, looped/low ponytails and simple braids/twists are making their debut. To master these looks, blow-dry your hair straight with a cocktail made of L’anza Polyester and L’anza Smoothing Balm or Bamboo Brilliance Cream. Create a clean center part if you prefer and secure your hair into a firm ponytail at the nape, spritzing with a shine mist. From there, you can wrap the tail into any number of looks—a loop with the ends pointing up or tucked under, a round ballet bun, or the classic double knot—sealed with a shot of anti-frizz spray. Too complicated to pull off on your own? No worries, come see us! (That's what we're here for!)
A good fringe is never out of fashion. Faux fringes and super-short styles are what you’re going to see a lot of this spring and summer.
The pixie crop has never been more feminine. Wear yours long and soft or gorgeous choppy crops for some spring-time trend-led inspiration. For something a little more fashion-forward, sweep your grown-out crop to one side leaving plenty of volume at the roots with Bamboo 48 Hour Root Lifter or L’anza Root Effects and enhance your brows for a bold look.
5) BLOW OUTS
But 2013 spring and summer isn’t all about messy waves and low-slung ponytails – there’s always room for an ultra-glam blow-dry while curling the ends of your hair under for a glossy, expensive look. You can order this quick-and-easy service off of our Express Menu at any of The Charles Penzone Salons.
This year’s styles are all about being creative. Opt for a twist, a fishtail braid or even a twisted braid to style up a lazy hair day.
Color this season is either soft, natural and low-maintenance such as golden blondes and browns with ombre and reverse ombre- or even just a few peek-a-boo highlights. You’ll also see some wild sassy colors such as stripes of bold pinks, purples and blues or even full pastel pink or full purple color.
Nothing adds an extra spring/summer twist to your hairstyle like a pretty hair accessory. A bold and colorful headband will make a messy up-do appear more polished or a classic printed headscarf will add a retro twist. A strong golden band will add glamour to a simple down-do- and who doesn’t love a little glamour? Be sure to check out our new line of accessories now available at The Grand Salon at Polaris Parkway!
MAKEUP TRENDS SPRING 2013
1) STRONG BEAUTIFUL BROWS
Brows frame your face and complete any look! (Our recommended products: Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics brow palette and concealer.)
