One Great Look: 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: Season’s Greetings!

Hair by Natasha Mcdowell
Signature Salon

Spring has sprung and we’re in the mood for something a little lighter. Luckily, this gorgeous head of highlights is giving us the perfect inspo for our next salon visit. All the ranges of buttery blondes are just what we need!

One great look: 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

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

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.

Sometimes “vanilla” can mean bland–but this is not one of those times! This pretty collection of waves and curls are soaked in shades of vanilla blonde, from light to dark and all colors in between. It’s delicious, and we want it now. You do, too, don’t you?

Delicious Curls

All Kinds Of Pretty

We don’t know what we love more about this look from hairstylist Brandi Camacho of jcp salon in Fort Collins, CO: the cut, the highlights or the bouncy way it’s styled. No matter how you slice it, this is a gorgeous design we’d love to wear. Today. Right now. Immediately!

The Pantone color of the year is a gorgeous spring green, and this fab tress color is a perfect match! We love the highlights and lowlights that give the shade dimension and make us green with envy.

The Correct Color


amanda jayko

Sometimes your color doesn’t grow out quite right–or maybe it just wasn’t perfect to begin with. Luckily there are pros like stylist Amanda Jayko of jcp salon in Algonquin, IL, who is also an Artistic Educator with Matrix Professional Haircare & Color, who can come to your rescue. Jayko transformed an uneven color into a beautiful buttery, vanilla blonde creation. Absolutely stunning!

What’s not to love? The color is beautiful, the length is #hairgoals and the curls? Well, the curls are what make us really swoon. The full body of the crown that waterfalls into all those pretty swirls at the end? Sigh.

Harry Potter Hair

Rose gold is the ‘it’ haircolor this season—and what better way to stay on trend than a rose gold coif with baby pink highlights throughout? A slightly darker base gives this design dimension, while mermaid-esque waves bring the vibrant hues to life. It’s not too late to recreate this sultry hue for your stylish New Year’s look!

Perfect for this style season, no one will be able to resist you with this rich color and flawless design!

ONE GREAT LOOK: DEEP TURQUOISE

Hair by Catina Nadine Boyle of Pure Lavi Salon, Luzerne, PA

Explore your dark side with a stunning cool-toned coif and braided detail. Rich, raven-hued tresses are splashed with a deep turquoise hue at the mid-shaft, while a large, loose braid spans across the back of the head. Voluminous waves ripple past the shoulders to soften this beautiful style.

ONE GREAT LOOK: Mermaid Mane-spiration

Hair by Ashley Medina Wilkinson at Curl Up And Dye, Los Lunas, NM

Why have normal-colored hair when you can be a mermaid? Reminiscent of something in your dreams, these stunning swirls of magenta, lavender, dusty rose and royal purple are straight out of a fairytale. Ribbons of vivid tresses are left sleek at the roots and bounce into clouds of soft curls for a dreamy design.

ONE GREAT LOOK: Dreamy Vanilla Swirls
