November is here! And, like Starbucks with their lovely red cups and retailers all around, we’re ready! Times like these are our favorite. A change in the season means it’s time to transition your look to follow suit! Colors, styles, trends – we’ve outlined it all! From the 1940s ladylike era to the 90s punk and grunge looks coming back this season, there is a fashion movement for everyone. Risk takers can rock a wet look, partygoers can wear red lips and traditional ladies can show their attitude with a shade-shifting metallic manicure. Take a look at some of our favorites to see what might spark a little fire and help you on your way to feeling fantastic all season long!
‘Tis the season to enrich your hair color
! Warm it up with a few lowlights which can add a world of difference and dimension into your hair. For brunettes, warm it up with a chestnut, auburn or chocolate brown. Blondes can shift their shade to the new blush tones, or can add caramel, oatmeal or golden blonde with your natural color. Killer coppers and raging reds are still a great way to still get that pop of color as well. If you’re thinking of a new hue, here’s a little pointer to help keep it fresh and vibrant. Schwarzkopf Toning Mousse
. As your hair professional which color is right for you (trust us – critical first step), then, keep your color fresh just by using it!
Just a few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of having celebrity hairstylist Kim Vo
fly into town to teach us the latest trends in color. We’re sure you’ve heard of Ombre, right? Thanks to Kim, we’re privy to the latest color trend… Sombre
! Sombre is a subtler version for fall and winter. This service adds a few sun-kissed highlights around the face while still keeping the ends of the hair lightened. Think Victoria’s Secret hair.
While the traditional colors are all the rage, the entire color wheel is appearing everywhere on all hair types. Purple and teal pieces are peeking out all over and pink is ever-popular, too. Our L’anza Color line allows us to customize any shade you can dream up and if you are not ready to take the plunge, try Quikkies
. They are non-invasive hair extensions that allow you to have a few pops of color within 15 minutes and they come out as quick as they were put in.
Thinking of a new cut in the months leading up to the New Year? Go short!
It’s easy, sexy and sassy! With so many cute hairstyles and inspirations, your options are unlimited. Try a piecey layered bob or a chic crop cut. Rock the Michelle Williams, Charlize Theron, Kelly Ripa, Julianne Hough or whoever else inspires you. Be brave and have fun with it!
If you’re still loving your long locks, change it up by adding a fringe or bangs.
Face-framing fringe will make you feel like you have a whole new cut and style without needing to cut off any length. Changing your part can change your whole look. Parting down the middle can give you a boho style, or cutting long blunt bangs will bring new attention to your eyes.
No matter the cut or color, it’s the style that makes your look complete. Disheveled, tousled curls
are all over the runways. Achieve this look with a curling iron or rod, and toss in a few curls from mid-length down. Flip your head upside-down and shake them out for that tousled curl. Make sure to use Davines Sea Salt Spray
for the texture you need! Top knots, messy buns and braids
are still all the rage this season. They are quick and easy styles that have great day-to-night versatility. To keep your bun current, it needs to be messy and textured. Alterna’s Caviar Hairspray
will hold your style in place but still keep it effortless and chic. You can change up your braid with the milkmaid or “wreath” style. Ask your Charles Penzone hair professional how to achieve this braided headband
style! While you’re there, be sure to get information on other styles to try, such as a wet look, ladylike rolls, sleek hair and how to pump up the volume!
When it comes to pairing make-up with your new holiday hair style, try jewel tones or metallic eyes
. We are noticing emerald, amethyst and sapphire colors on eyes this winter. To really make your eye sultry, rim your water line with a navy, plum, or black liner. Champagne, bronze, silver, gunmetal and gold are other colors that are the perfect shades for a festive party or a night out. Our Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics
line carries several beautiful shades and liners to compliment every skin tone. Frame your face with thick brows, filling them in as needed. For your lips, paint them a red to compliment your skin tone, like ruby, cherry, or oxblood. This will make your pout come alive!
As the invitations come in and events mark up your calendar, let us keep you updated for all your parties and special events. We hope these tips and trends for the holidays have sparked the fashionista in you. Happy Holidays!
