5 Hot Summer Beauty Trends


 

Get summer ready with the hottest beauty trends from the top pros at one of New York’s most popular salons—Julien Farel!

1.  Summer Scalp Secrets
My favorite summer haircare tip is to wet hair before the beach or pool, add your favorite conditioner, braid and go. This conditions your hair all day and helps it remain manageable while wet!—Suelyn Farel, CEO, Julien Farel Group

2.  Making The Cut
It’s all about grown out bobs. It’s now a longer, the edges a bit shattered, a bit worn. Think: lived-in lob. It instantly modernizes a classic look!—Jackson Simmonda, Advanced Stylist

3.  Hot Hue
Blondes have more fun! This summer, it’s al about the sandy blonde look, it includes different shades of light butter to beige tones.—Jasmine Raineri, Senior Colorist

4.  Hit Makeup Moves
Eyes are bare and lips are bold! For a refreshed look, lose the mascara but use a bold lip for a pop.—Marylisa Diaz, Makeup Artist

5.  Nailed It
Lighten up your basic French manicure with a double reversed French manicure or go for geometric patterns.—Bibi Zakir, Nail Technician

One Great Look: Ribbons

It’s not just the ribbon effect of the curls, it’s the ribbons of vanilla, wheat and bronze hues running through the tresses in an orderly and beautiful fashion. Lowlights, highlights, swizzles of spirals and all that bounciness means we have a winner (a blue-ribbon winner…).

Dirty Dancing TONIGHT!


Three decades after the 1987 original film, Dirty Dancing is getting a much anticipated reboot tonight on ABC. Based off the same storyline, the new television adaptation stars Abigail Breslin as Baby, Colt Prattes as Johnny Castle, Sarah Hyland as Baby’s older sister Lisa and Debra Messing as Baby’s mom, Mrs. Majorie Houseman. Here’s a sneak peek at what everyone will look like tonight…

5 Steps To Hailee’s Waves

Hailee Steinfeld nailed the magenta carpet in a bold & edgy look at the Billboard Music Awards. Beyond the metallic and black gown, her longer-than-long hair looked amazing, thanks to hairstylist Gregory Russell. “Hailee’s style was inspired by her sequined David Koma gown,” shares Russell. “I wanted to be sure to give her a modern look with varying textures that would pair perfectly.” Here’s how you can steal the Pitch Perfect star’s style…

  1. Apply a volumizing mousse to damp hair, then apply a heat-protectant.
  2. Blow-dry away from the face and through the ends using a large round brush.
  3. Create a deep side part. Taking 1 inch sections at a time, curl hair (all in the same direction) with a 1.5″ iron, pinning each curl until cool.
  4. Once cooled, brush out curls into waves and apply Matrix Style Link Over Achiever through the ends to add structure and shine.
  5. Apply styling gel through the roots to hold the hair away from the face; use flat hair pins to set. Diffuse-dry the gelled areas for 10 minutes, then remove pins. Spray with hairspray Matrix Style Link Style Fixer for hold.

The music show promises performances by some of today’s hottest stars, and the whole thing is going to be hosted by Vanessa Hudgens (and Ludacris). We also can’t wait to see the red carpet–everyone is going to be there, from Kate Beckinsale to Nicki Minaj, Hailee Steinfeld to Cher. We’re in for some exciting hair, we can tell.
