One Great Look: Blonde Ambition


Hair by Hannah Swaner
JCPenney Salon, Twin Falls, ID

We’re a sucker for a great blonde hairdo. A brunette base lets the golden-blonde color on top really pop! Tousled, loose curves are brushed away from the face for that I-woke-up-like-this finish.

Finding flakes doesn’t always mean dandruff. If flakes are persistent seek out a dermatologist.

Power Couple


Nothing is better than when you and your significant other are both on top of your mane game. From Eleven Australia’s “Remix” collection, these looks celebrate a person’s individual style. For her, ginger-spiced tresses are styled into a flirty lob with loose waves and a straight bang. For him, dark roots are dipped in a pale silver-gray and snipped shorter on the sides with the front texturized and tousled.

If your haircolor is growing out at the roots, stagger your part on the diagonal. It will scatter the color and distract the eye from seeing a regrowth line.

Golden Globes Hair


The first big red-carpet awards show of the season, the Golden Globes did not disappoint in the beauty arena last night. We’ve got the top four hair trends that seemed to be popping up on the biggest stars…

1. Upsweeps

Whether simple and chic or elaborate and textured, there were upsweeps everywhere. Amber Heard had a gorgeous one!

2. Slicked-Back

Some had bangs, some didn’t. Tresses were glossed back with lots of shine. Charlize Theron showed off the short version.

3. Waves

Smooth and precise in the old-Hollywood style or loose and beachy, they were everywhere. Julia Roberts wore hers somewhere between.

4. Bob

Short, medium and long, the bob is always a classic and looks good super straight or with a bit of texture like Lucy Boynton wore hers.

Ask you stylist to apply a gloss on top of your haircolor to help seal, protect and preserve your color.

Grooming Game


Have your guy win it all with the best cut (and beard!). This hot look from Paris, France, shows just how charming he can look with longer crown layers and closely cropped sides and nape.

Head to your salon pro for the cut, then follow up at home with the right tools to keep his facial hair looking on point. How? Must-have tools!
