ULTRA VIOLET /wp-content/uploads/2018/03/8.jpg

JCPenney Salons and The Salon At InStyle At JCPenney gives us the rundown on how to wear this season’s hottest haircolor.

   

Topknot Cuteness


Who can live without the topknot, the ultimate upsweep for women on the go, and the reason so many of us wear an elastic band around our wrists? Leave it to Khloe Kardashian and her stylist, Jen Atkin, to create a totally cute version that goes beyond the gym, living room couch and walk around the park. The whole thing is too cute, and #hairgoals if we’ve ever had one.

One Great Look: Spiced Cider

Hair Artistry by Amber Kelley, Oakland, KA

This warmed toned mane is perfect for the cooler season. A beautiful marmalade tone is drenched over strands, getting lighter as it falls. Hair falls just past the shoulders in simple waves.

White Hot!


Meghan Trainor is heating up the haircolor scene with her newly done platinum locks. Having gone from a buttery blonde to a sizzling red and back in the blonde category, the singer is taking it up another notch with this white-hot hue. Well done, Meghan. Well done.

THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS!


One of our favorite made-for-tv movies, The 12 Days of Christmas, is back on tonight on Lifetime! Kristen Chenoweth (always great hair!)  plays a PR excec who escapes to a small town, where she puts her media know-how to good use raising money for a local rescue squad. Her racy idea of selling a sexy calendar featuring squad members is met with some local resistance. Yes, it’s a chick flick and we love!!!

Vanessa Is Sinful


You may already know SinfulColors for their nail lacquer–and now there’s a color cosmetics line, too! And Vanessa Hudgens is their new Global Color Collaborator. “I was already a fan of the SinfulColors nail color brand, so to become their Global Color Collaborator, launching the first-ever SinfulColors cosmetics collection, is an honor,” shares Vanessa. “The products are so unexpected, and not like anything I have seen before. This is a collection I can’t wait to share with my friends and fans.”

The collection is available starting today exclusively on Amazon, and will hits stores and other online sources in January 2018, including Walmart, CVS and Rite Aid.

One Great Look – Sunflower Vibes


Hair by Laura Brasier
The Cuttaway Salon Joplin, MI

Let your hair shine as bright as your attitude with a fearless and vibrant look like this. Thick locks are tinted a stunning yellow hue that’s slightly darker at the roots. Strands of this medium-length look are styled into beachy waves for a cute finish.

Fresh Cut


Ahhhh. Nothing makes us happier than a fresh cut and a gorgeous profile! Candace Cameron Bure showed off her layered bob snip on Instagram, newly done by Carachele Tyvan. Loving the slightly longer length at front and the stacked effect at the nape. #hairgoals? You bet!

Faith Hill’s Top Knot


Did you love Faith Hill’s sexy top knot on the red carpet at the CMA Awards? Using The One byFrederic Fekkai, here’s how stylist Lorenzo Martin created the look…

  • After seeing Faith’s stunning, one shoulder, Armani Privé gown, we decided to go with a messy top knot. I blow-dried Faith’s hair with a large round brush and then sprayed One and Then Some Dry Texturizing Spray throughout her hair, creating a lived-in look.
  • I then took all her hair and tied it into a high pony. I wrapped various pieces of hair in different directions and secured them with hair pins. I finished the look with The One by Frederic Fekkai One To Hold Hairspray to make her hair sexy and tousled for the night!

Crimson Confidence


JCPenny Salon in Hanford, CA, stylist Mariah Delacruz packed some serious pigment into this red-hot mane! Vibrant, cherry-red strands cascade past the shoulders in thick, voluminous curls. This is the kind of look dreams are made of! #jcpsalon #salonbyinstyle #jcpenneysalon

5 Great Looks From The CMA Awards


Last night the CMA Awards were on, and we watched every minute! Here are five of our favorite looks from the night…

1. CARRIE UNDERWOOD

2. REBA MCENTIRE

3. KELSEA BALLERINI

4. CAM

5. PINK

 

One Great Look – Boho Glamour


Hair by Annette Waligora
Chicago, IL

We adore how fun and feminine this coif is. Tresses are split down the middle and plaited into voluminous French braids on either side. Once locks dip below the nape they become tighter, multi-strand braids and then the hair is left to fall free past the shoulders. Glitter is adorned on the part and several hair accessories finish off the look.

Miley Mane Moves


How cute has Miley Cyrus been looking on The Voice? Very cute! Gone are the defined, halfway-down roots, having been replaced by a more blended buttery-bronzey blonde. The length is allowing her to do all sorts of styles, and we’re more than happy to tune in to see how she’s wearing it from show to show. We love!

Pony Power


Never underestimate the style power of the perfect ponytail. Hairstylist Christian Wood did actress Bryce Dallas Howard proud with this fluffy pony and on-point bangs. A little extra texture and a few face-framing tendrils and this ponytail is red-carpet ready.

THEY’RE BACK!


The Real Housewives of Atlanta return today on BRAVO TV. This season Kim Zolciak-Bierman rejoins the cast in all her fabulousness and glory! We did an interview with Kim a bit ago and she revealed that her mom was a, you guessed it!, hairdresser. “My my is a hairdresser and I grew up in hair salons. I used to beg her to make me blonde. I really do believe blondes have more fun.” We’ll be tuning in for sure!

Veronica Peraza of JCPenny Salon in Paradise Valley, AZ, is the mane maven behind this look. #jcpsalon #salonbyinstyle #jcpenneysalon

One Great Look: Ombre Buffet


Hair by Jessica Robinson
Twisted Masters Hair Studio
Paris, KY

We’re hungry for new haircolor and this buffet of gorgeous color is our favorite item on the menu today. Luscious milk and dark chocolate at the crown melt into caramel, butterscotch and vanilla along the ends. Yum!

Protective Styles


Stop stressing out your strands with unhealthy and excessive tugging and pulling that can cause your hair to become delicate and potentially led to hair loss! Instead of tight buns and ponytails the hair care experts at Viviscal suggest safe and stylish looks like messy updos, long bangs, shoulder length looks, Natural hairdos and loose, bohemian ponytails.

Great idea!

FALL HAIRCOLOR MAKEOVER!

Matrix Professional Haircolor is so stunning, as shown in this beautiful makeover by Pati Rodriguez. Color Melt here is all about Peach, Quartz Pink and Berry Violet. We’re so ready!

Blue Details


It’s all about the details with this style. An edgy indigo root turns into a sassy silver shade. The front is split into two buns to show off the color combo. Styled by Kayla Scroggin of JCPenny Salon in Ukiah, CA. #jcpsalon #salonbyinstyle #jcpenneysalon

Loose Waves — NYFW How-To


Who can resist the style appeal of loose, bohemian waves? Get these runway-worthy tresses with the help of professional hairstylist Michael Johnson and Biolage R.A.W Styling products!

GET THE LOOK…

  • To prep, apply Biolage R.A.W. Smoothing Styling Milk to ease the grip of blow-dry and to nourish
  • Create a center part and comb around the hairline, creating waves and giving the hair direction
  • Spray with Biolage R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray to give definition then use a 3/4-inch barrel curling iron to curl hair and brush the waves through to keep them soft
  • Spray Biolage R.A.W. Frizz Control Styling Spray through hair to maintain frizz and protect from humidity
  • Finish it off with Biolage R.A.W. Texturizing Styling Spray to set and add texture to the hair

One Great Look – Sweet & Sour


Hair by Amber Kelley
Blu Bird Spa, Overland Park, KS

Now that’s how you wear color! This vibrant coif is perfect for the fearless fashionista! A deep grape base seamlessly becomes a vivid lime hue with hints of emerald and seafoam throughout for an epic color combination.

DOES IT WORK?: Hair, Skin & Nail Vitamins


It seems like every social media stunner swears by this and that vitamin that is guaranteed to give you dream hair, skin and nails. But are they worth the hype? With the help of Viviscal, here are the vitamins that actually help to give you healthy hair, strong nails and gorgeous skin…

Marine Fatty Acids, such as omega 3, works to heal dry and damaged hair, combat hair loss and treat flaky scalp.

Vitamin B acts as antioxidant for the skin and can help remove bacteria and balance testosterone levels to fight acne.

Biotin, or Vitamin B7, is a must for healthy hair! This vitamin stimulates hair growth and promotes healthy hair.

Emmy Look How-To: Laura Dern


We know we’re not the only ones who loves Big Little Lies’s Laura Dern’s luscious locks at the 69th Primetime Emmy Awards! Her hairstylist, celebrity hairdresser Ryan Trygstad was kind enough to break down her feisty look for us using The One by Frédéric Fekkai products…

“Once seeing the dress, we decided to go with the more sexy undone texture, with a bit of edge and choppiness. I first prepped Laura’s hair with One to Believe In Leave-In Conditioner then blew her hair half dry with a large round brush. Next I added The Gifted One Multitasker Creme through the mid-shaft and ends for protection and shine. Then I used the One Up Lift Volume Spray for root lift and long-lasting control. Once Laura’s hair was completely dry I first sprayed the entire head with the One To Hold Hairspray I did this to help with hold when I next curled her hair with a ceramic one-inch, leaving the ends of the hair a bit straighter and spikey. For the final product I sprayed One and Then Some Dry Texturizing Spray for a dry loose hold, and sexiness!”

BACKSTAGE HAIRSTYLING


We love these looks from New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018 featuring these looks created with TRESemme Repair & Protect 7 Shampoo and Conditioner and TRES Two Hair Spray. The TRESemme Fresh Start Volumizing Dry Shampoo is massaged into roots with fingers when hair is dry for max texture and the TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shine Serum is used to create a roughed up rock ’n’ roll effect. Looks by Justin Marjan, TRESemme Global Stylist for Alice + Olivia.  I did not wake up like this hair!
