Color Me…
May 25, 2016

While you may be getting your groove on for the arrival of summer, designers have already been hard at work on their fashion collections for fall. And what is inspired by fashion? Hair, of course!

Taking a look at all the runway shows and what’s going on in fashion and life in general, the color experts at the Pantone Color Institute have come up with the Fall 2016 Color Palette, a collection of 10 colors they think we’ll be seeing a lot of in the coming months. “The palette is led by the blue family, conveying a message of calm and constancy. Along with anchoring earth tones, exuberant pops of vibrant colors also appear throughout, representing this season’s take on graphical elements and geometric shapes across the collections,” says Pantone.

Now read that quote again and think about hair!

Here are the 10 colors for fall…

Slice Of (Colorful!) Life
May 24, 2016

slice of colorful life

Master Colorist and Stylist Margarita Ford, of Euodia Salon and Spa in Moorpark, CA, added brilliant color slices to an angled bob for a creation we just can’t stop staring at. Teal and blue almost blend in with the dark hue underneath, but get a bold companion with a pop of super-bright pink, which just brings all the colors into super-neon focus. Color us impressed.

BAROQUE GLORY
May 22, 2016

baroque beauty 1

We love these two images (so inspiring!) from hair designer Laura Hudson, Queensland Hairdresser of the Year.  The looks were inspired by the Baroque Period—the first  modern age—reflecting a certain freedom artists had during that time period. The hair designs show classic appeal with a contemporary edge—focussing on structure, softness, height and a touch of quirk.

City Chic
May 20, 2016

city chic

Is that a touch of pink we see? Why, yes–yes it is. And that’s only one aspect of this look by the hair pros at jcp salon that makes this a must-have style choice. A long cut is optimized in texture with well-defined, angled layers, while a center part keeps you on the straight and narrow. Finish it all off with a sleeker-than-sleek surface and you’re one stylin’ chick. #jcpsalon #salonbyinstyle
