Spring has sprung and love is in the air. Its wedding season yet again and change has come to the modern bride’s hair. The interpretations of the ever classic looks have helped freshen up bridal beauty.
Since brides today demand perfection on all parts of the wedding, allow the beauty to be all natural. Think relaxed. What was once clean and sculptured is now loose and romantic. These non contrived looks have softened the bridal image while emphasizing the gown.
Chignons, ponytails, twists, and braids have all loosened to give an effortless appearance. Straight hair is now wavy, giving you options to style it both up or down.
When you go in for the trial run, ensure to bring along images for your stylist. You can use websites like http://www.teknot.com/ or wedding magazines like Martha Stewart Weddings as references of imagery.
Whatever you decide on, remember chic and effortless for spring/summer 2010. To book bridal updo’s contact the salon at 212.414.1333.

I have to share this with all Stylists who have the desire to grow and have fun doing so. Get inspired, check out our monthly workshops on Facebook.
Today was a good day. Inspired by Cristiano’s workshop, I worked on a hair model. I felt so gratified after this haircut. It looked great. The model was smiling before I finished. We both could see the shape in progress. I disconnected the top, undercut a flat rounded graduated shape hugging the nape with the weight sitting at the occipital. The fringe was cut to the cheekbone, connecting with the outline through the sides.
The shape was full of movement and versatility which showcased the beautiful color, another plus to a fabulous haircut.
Swing into Spring with a new haircut and leave the winter blahs behind.

Girls Girls Girls…. Rule #1 Don’t ever take hair color matters into your own hands. You can easily end up spending double or triple your money in the salon to fix your hair. Spring is in the air and there is nothing worse than a box blonde gone wrong. Blondes in a box can be very deceiving and what looks like one thing to you will look different to an expert with a trained eye for color. Your best bet would be to shop around, book yourself a few consultations and then decide what’s best for you. A great colorist will give you options to suit your lifestyle and wallet. I always say you could never go wrong with highlights in warm velvety tones or cooler, creamier ultra light tones depending on your skin tone. If you tend to have pink or red undertones in your skin, you want to go with cooler tones to really soothe any redness. If you have more olive tones, you really want to go with warmer tones like honey and almond colors that are more complimentary to the skin. Like magic, hair color can really transform any unwanted tones and compliment a beautifully shaped haircut. Highlights can always be a great choice because you don’t ever have a harsh line of demarcation which will allow you to color your hair every 3 to 6 months depending on how strong your wave pattern is.
