Comfy Doesn’t Mean Frumpy!

While investigating the hottest trends for fall, I saw something that really concerned me! I discovered that “warm, comfy sweaters” would be one of the trends. And while this may sound alright, I immediately became concerned for our frumpy friends! Comfy does not mean FRUMPY! Here are a few ways to rock the warm and comfy look without looking like you just threw on any ‘ole thing! 🙂

Fall Trend: Warm, Cozy Sweaters

Spring hair trends!

Yearning for a new spring hair ‘do?

Whether it’s a sleek, shoulder-length bob or a custom-blend of blonde highlights or thick, wavy locks (thanks to a few easy-to-apply extensions), spring hair is bold, carefree, shiny, and most importantly, healthy.

Accessories are another great way to add some spring flavor to your mane if you don’t want to do anything drastic to your hairstyle.

Balayage and Root Shading: “A current hair trend is in the application of color — skipping the foils and using hand-painting techniques — in order to get these rich, organic, and almost lived-in results,” says Scrivo. “In the world of artificial color, hair is lighter at the root area and more even throughout. So, it can become a bit wiglike.” But with sunnier days ahead, it’s time to get back to nature with hair color that is much more realistic.  Keep the roots dark and added subtle highlights around the face and onto the ends to create a bold, yet soft contrast.

Extensions: Already a way of life for models, actors, and entertainers, hair extensions are becoming more commonplace among everyday women. “Whether you’re experimenting with fun color and you don’t want to damage your hair or have the commitment of color, clip-in extensions are a great alternative for women who want to add highlights to their hair without the added stress.

Ammonia-Free Hair Color: As the seasons change, professional hair colorists are evolving with the trends and playing around with no-ammonia permanent and demi-permanent hair color. Experimenting with different formulations of dye allows for more innovative ways to blend and perfect hair color. With ammonia-free hair color  you won’t have to risk damaging your strands in order to achieve great coverage.
