Slice Of (Colorful!) Life
May 24, 2016
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.

The red carpet at last night’s Billboard Music Awards had us whipping our heads this way and that, checking out all the fab hairstyles whizzing by us. We did happen to notice a few trends happening…
Both Ciara and Kate Beckinsale opted for customized ponytails, with face-framing layers to set off the style from the front view.
Trendsetters Rihanna and Demi Lovato showed off above-the-shoulder lengths in rich, dark hues. (No extensions this time for either!)
Jessica Alba and Keke Palmer had their hair piled on top of the head, with a few twists and curves to make it unique for their outfits.
Meghan Trainor (still with the red!) and Rebecca Romijn channeled old Hollywood glam with big curls and lots of volume.
Texture was the end-game for Halsey with her pixie snip and Kesha with her fringed bob.
Ariana Grande wore her signature high pony with sleek length, while Zendaya opted for ultra-sleek layers.

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.

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
