Flower Child

You don’t have to be a hippy to embrace the beauty of flowers and a perfect braid. This elegant updo by stylist Cassandra Hoggins of JCPenney Salon in Bourbonnais, IL, is a sweet and simple way to style your hair with a loose fishtail braid that’s been brought up and decorated with wildflowers.

Face Forward: Gold Rush

It’s almost the weekend! Do you have your makeup look figured out yet? Here’s your weekly inspiration…

Makeup artist Vincent Oquendo used Dior Makeup to create a beautiful face for actress Zoey that includes a gold metallic eyeshadow. Working with the gold, a russet hue adds a bronze-y matte contrast, while super-long lashes dark brows provide the perfect frame. To top it off: a salmon-pink glossy lip. (P.S. The ballerina bun is the perfect topper!)

One Great Look: Sunny Days

Robenee Salon, Brookhaven MS

Autumn is the perfect time to take a walk on the red side. Playing with a redhead’s natural hues, the color accentuates the vibrant shade, making it look even richer.

Color hair one to three strands lighter for a complementary new style.


We love a good makeover, and we know you do, too. This one from Mary H. Ott, owner With Love Mary salon in Allentown, PA, involves the pretties of color changes, from a dark reddish-blonde to a shiney rose-gold with amber and honey peeking through. The giant waves only add to the finished appeal.

Face Forward: Think Pink

It’s almost the weekend! Do you have your makeup look figured out yet? Here’s your weekly inspiration…

When the lips do the talking for you… Makeup artist Gianpaolo Ceciliato created a bold pucker for actress/talk-show host Busy using Hourglass Cosmetics  Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick in I Can’t Wait, a vivid fuchsia. A bit of mascara and a pale pink shadow finished the look, but left the star’s lips the beauty focus.

Ensure your super-curly strands get tons of moisture by infusing them with leave-in conditioner, oil and styling cream.

One Great Look: Pulling Looks

Hair by Kelsey Johnson
Textur Salon, Webb City, MO

A fresh take on a classic braid, this ultra loose bubble braid is lush and perfect for special occasions. The warm beige on the base plays up the tousled chic and gives off some quality boho vibes.

Need a quick hair fix? Look in your pantry for olive or coconut oil—both are great moisturizing agents.

Cool Color

Can’t decide between blonde and brunette? Take a page from singer Rachel Platten’s color book and go for both. The star starts with a brunette base, then adds in an ombre dark blonde throughout, ending with bolder blonde panels framing the face. It’s the best of both worlds!

Head to a salon pro a few times a year to ensure your mane looks its best.

Twice As Nice

What happens when two powerhouse salon pros out of Australia get together? Double the beauty. Michael Kelly, Colourist and Education Director Edwards & Co. did the ombre effect with a darker brunette base and lighter caramel ends, while Natalie Anne of Natalie Anne Salon in Australia created the super-pumped volume with twirls of giant curls. Twice as nice!

Straighten your hair without heat by trying the banding method.


Layers of different textures and mixing fun prints had a strong presence on the runways, which of course will have a major influence on how we play with hair in 2019. “There will be more artificial texture created with irons, mixed media almost, with braids and twists heightening the effect,” explains Anna Peters, Sam Villa ArTeam.

The Sam Villa Signature Series Professional Texturizing Iron is ideal for creating variations in texture and volume for these styles. Peters mixes smooth polished strands that sit upon matte ripples of texture, with compact plaits mixed in with full, relaxed, more deconstructed plaits.

We thought another way to get this look (if you don’t have long hair) would be a fun hair piece to try for the holidays and have styled up at your favorite hair salon!
