One Great Look – Copper Plated


Hair by Laura Brasier
The Cuttaway Salon, Joplin, MO

It’s okay for people to stop and stare when your mane looks this good! Several shades of burnt orange and auburn are blended into a stunning and dimensional copper color. Hair spirals way past the shoulders in loose, beachy waves that highlight the brilliance of strands’ shade.

One Great Look – Rainbow Realness


Hair by Mary Baxley-Pierle
The Cutting Zone, Kailua, HI

How amazing is this half-up half-down ‘do? Dark blonde strands are tinted purple, pink, blue and green at the tips. A portion of hair on top is pulled back and styled into two voluminous braids that meet in the middle. Cascading curls finish off the style and highlight the cool color combination.

Brunette Bombshell

Whether you’re off to see the wizard, or you’re living it up in your house (there’s no place like home, right?), you can’t go wrong with a gorgeous emerald hue with hide-away panels of royal purple. It’s a statement style that even Glinda would approve of.

There’s something to be said about the perfect braid: we want it. Long hair is twisted in two strands from each temple and joined in the back before leading into a loose plait. Dreamy.

Sunny Summer Blonde

Extra foam and volume, please! Gorgeous blonde hues work together to create a steamy, delicious treat. Easy waves and perfect crown volume top it off. (P.S. It’s calorie-free, too!)

One Great Look: Ribbons

Hair by Mary Baxley-Pierle
The Cutting Zone, Kailua, HI

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…).

One Great Look: Purple Blush

Hair by Erica Billingsley
Heritage Studios, Chicago, IL

The root of all things good and cool — purple. A platinum mane is blushed with deep, dark roots of royal purple that melt into white-hot blonde. You can’t get much more fab than this.

ONE GREAT LOOK: Iridescent Dream

Looking for the elusive perfect red? This may be it! A deeper tone at the base leads to a brighter shade of scarlet on the ends, all with captivating results. Crimson, here we come.

Gorgeous Gray


gorgeous gray

While some of us can’t stand the idea of letting even one little gray hair show on our beautifully coiffed heads, there are some of us who think, “Why not?” And why not, indeed, when the hair pros at jcp salon show you just how gorgeous a head of gray hair can actually be. Light volume and curling-iron created waves give the pretty silver hue a modern vibe that’s as easy as it is beautiful. #jcpsalon #salonbyinstyle

Forget what Keith Urban says, blue is your color! A true-blue mane is infused with all tones, from the palest sky blue to a subtle tease of dark violet. The finished look is ribbon-worth (blue ribbon, of course!). #jcpsalon #salonbyinstyle

 

Work It!


soft layers

Don’t break a sweat trying to get the perfect tress look–make your hair work for you! Getting the perfect cut with just the right layers can save you a ton of time when styling. Got a cowlick or a funny part? Ask your stylist to turn it into a fabulous part of your design! This silver creation, designed by the style pros at jcp salon, relies on soft layering around the face and a hair part that’s slightly off center to boost volume and give great flow. See? Beauty can be easy! #jcpsalon #salonbyinstle

One Great Look: Fun Bun


fun bun

Hair by Erica Loney
Elkins Park, PA

From the front, a casual combination of brunette with subtle highlights. From the back? A totally new and colorful story! A rainbow of bright hues starts just below the ears in a gorgeous color melt. When styled into a twisted, braided bun, the result is an explosion of pretty all in one compact finish.

The Mane Event

Prom, wedding, first date, golden anniversary–if you’ve got a special occasion coming up, you’re probably already on the hunt for your ultimate hairstyle. For inspiration, you can always pick up a copy of Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide, then take your tagged looks to a jcp salon to have them create the perfect one for you. Hollace Noel Clayton of jcp salon in South County Center in St. Louis, MO, is the hair artist behind this braided and curled creation, which is just one gorgeous example of the fab work they can do for you! #jcpsalon #salonbyinstyle

One great look: Blue Dip


blue dip

Hair by Samantha Trammell
Mad Style Salon
Carthage, MO

Blue is very trending right now, and we are crushing hard on this blonde hue with blue-dipped edges. The highlights and lowlights give the blue a multi-shaded finish that we just can’t get enough of. And we can only imagine how beautiful the grow-out will be, when the bolder pieces turn a soft, baby blue…

Purple Reign


Purple Reign

Master Stylist Jacqueline Estrada at jcp salon in Modesto, CA, created this bold and bright confection of purple hues, ranging from dark to light. The fab color work totally stands out with a crowning braid that shows all the contrasting and complementary hues! The reign of purple has begun…

Such a gorgeous haircolor! From dark to light, we’re loving all of the shades of red melted together in this perfect bob cut. Feeling the need to make a haircolor appointment? We thought so…

Pixie Perfect


melissa wendt

How much cuter, edgier, more fashion forward, more wearable can you get than this fab pixie created by stylist Melissa Wendt at The Salon by InStyle inside JCPenney at the Westland Shopping Center in Westland, MI? To counter the ever-present cute factor of the pixie snip, Wendt doused the cut in a big platinum hue with lots of shine. It’s the perfect combination of you, and you bolder.
