Top In Texture! Your Hot Summer Look

What’s better than one awesome braid to make you look cool when the heat is on? How about two! The style pros at jcp salon use a small braid as a divider between the crimped top braid and the slicked back sides, effectively pulling off a seriously textured look with a fauxhawk vibe. The bee’s knees! #jcpsalon

Want va-va-voom volume? Avoid long, straight, one-length cuts or bobs that weigh down the hair too much.

Lolla Festival Hair

Lollapalooza kicks off this weekend in Chicago, and you’re looking for the perfect Boho tress look. We’ve got you covered. Redken Global Creative Director Guido created this mane move for the Versace runway show. “The look at Versace was very romantic, but still a little tough and rock ‘n’ roll. The girls looked like beautiful nymphs in gorgeous dresses with leafy, whimsical headbands. It feels a little ’70s in a way with the natural hair textures and long, loose waves that I roughed up a bit for a fantasy-like finish,” shares Guido. Here are the step-by-steps so you can do the look yourself!

1. Start with clean hair and use a fine-tooth comb to create a clean center part.

2. Mist Redken fashion waves 07 sea salt spray all over hair for added texture, and then allow to air-dry.

3. Bend small sections of hair around a 1-inch curling iron to add body and movement.

4. Spray Redken wind blown 05 dry finishing spray all over  hair to enhance the natural texture.

5. Add a headband of your choice!

The first ever Matrix Inspiration Salon—Salon Mayan in Huntington, New York—recently had its grand opening. Salon Mayan is the first of many Matrix Inspiration Salons to come throughout the country. “Matrix gives us everything we need to connect with existing and potential clients as well as overall support for our salon and staff. I’m really looking forward to continuing as part of the Matrix family, growing this salon and opening new locations in the future!” says Salon Mayan owner, Ben Aharon.

The grand opening kicked off with a ribbon cutting ceremony with members of the Huntington Chamber of Commerce, Matrix Vice President of Business Development Gail Cohen, Matrix General Manager Paul Schiraldi and Salon Mayan owner Aharon.

Attendees, including reality TV star Kelly Bensimon, mixed and mingled as they enjoyed an afternoon learning about professional styling tips and tricks from live stylist demonstrations while trying out an array of Matrix products.

Here are a few snaps from the event…
