Trim your ends regularly. Make sure you’re snipping off dead ends every six to eight weeks.

Bubblegum Goals


Stylist Maegan Jones, from JCPenney Salon in Roseville, CA, designed this colorful and flirty hairstyle. Brown roots really help the bright pink lengths stand out. Ombré rouge stands are styled into two French braids ending in cute buns on top, while the remaining tresses tumble in waves.

Strands feeling a little weak? Apply a protein hair treatment, followed by a moisturizer, to help strengthen your mane.

American Woman


Clueless? Nah…think ’70s instead of ’90s and you have Alicia Silverstone’s new television series. American Woman follows Bonnie (played by Alicia) as she raises her two daughters “amid the sexual revolusion and rise of feminism of the 1970’s” –that’s according to the Paramount Network, where you can check out the series tonight. Along with Alicia, you’ll also catch Mena Suvari and Jennifer Bartels. It’s a dramedy and yeah, yeah, it looks really interesting. But the best part? THE HAIR. It’s all ’70s and all so retro-cool.

Inch By Inch


Rumer Willis recently turned her short cut into lengthy locks with the help of Nine Zero One Salon. Naturally a brunette, the Empire star has been rocking a honey-blonde hue for a while now, and decided to add inches for a mane change-up. And the best part? When she wants to change it up again, she can go back to her super-cute textured bob!

5 WAYS TO MAKE HAIRCOLOR LAST IN SUMMER 


Don’t you just love all the Vivid haircolor looks we’re seeing now? Would you make the leap and do like this lady? We can’t stop staring at this tropical cocktail look by Kayla Boyer who used Pravana professional haircolor on her hair. It seems like everyone is coloring their hair this season, and to make your favorite hue or hues last longer during the summer months try:

♦1♦ Wearing a hat or scarf when under a hot summer sun

♦2♦ Avoiding very hot showers. The temperature opens up your mane’s cuticles, releasing color and moisture

♦3♦ Using a hair protector with SPF when in sun, pool or ocean to keep hair from fading

♦4♦ A thermal protectant to help reduce fade and to protect against heat damage from styling tools

♦5♦ Using  a good daily conditioner, but don’t leave on for a long period of time. Avoid deep conditioning or at-home masks after you have your hair colored—they may fade some hues.

Happy summer!

A great way to protect your strands before heat styling is to apply a leave-in conditioner.

Total Betty


Singer Betty Who released “Betty Pt. 1” this week, and her album cover shows off her amazing platinum locks in a totally cool and edgy style. The sides are shaved super short, while the crown is left longer, allowing for all sorts of trendy styles, including this curved mohawk version. Lengths can also be combed to one side for a pixie effect and curled for a halo vibe. Too cute, right? And perfect for summer’s fashionistas…
