Trend Alert: Caramel Hair Is All the Rage!

Hi, Dames! Hair color is a funny thing. Platinum hair has really taken the lead in trends for a while now, mostly because pastels are still raging hard and the only way to get a pastel color is to bleach the hair first. Therefore, everyone wants a platinum base.

If you’re a more natural girl, the runner up with hair color is caramel! It’s already spring and everyone is lightening up for summer. I predict variations of this color will loom over the hot months and caramel tones will reign this year in general. Why? It’s very low maintenance and, let’s face it, who has the time for more? Caramels and toffee hair tones are easy and go well with almost every skin tone. They transition well with blonde and the reality is everyone, even the Kardashian Klan, loves this tone from time to time. You can get with the program! Below are some examples of variations I love:

Add Spring Pastels To Your Hair!

Dames, Spring is here! I personally think it’s so much fun to play with the color of our hair to reflect and match the current season. Spring is way more than sun and sunflowers – it’s festivals, pastels in hair and floral patterns on your dress. Giving your hair a hint of pastel is so on trend right now, here’s a couple ways you can do it.

1) Go to your stylist and show her a pic of the hottest influencers on IG and tell her you want that hair. This could be pricey, but obviously it will look amaze.

2) If you are already blonde you can get a Manic Panic pastel color (the famous Creamtones) and mix it with conditioner if you want your color to be extra light. After washing your hair,  apply the colored conditioner to your hair when it’s damp. Leave it on for 20 minutes and rinse. If you just want a small streak in your hair, separate out the piece you want and apply the color.

3) If you have dark hair or  just want some temporary color, extensions are your best bet.  You can always check out Etsy, for some cool color combos. Supporting our local artists is always an awesome way to go. Or, you could purchase some blonde clip-ins and color them following directions above.

Hope this inspires you for some cool pastel tones this season, Dames! Let me know if you have any questions.

Blorange Color Trend: Yay or Nay?

Hi, Dames! Is everyone noticing this rosé colored hair trend that is all over IG? Yeah, me too. It’s called Blorange! I’m not mad at it… I mean, it was hot like 2 years ago but back then it was just called rose gold.  Leave it to the millennials to give it a cool name! It’s fun to mix up your blonde from time to time. It’s easy to do it yourself at home. Don’t be afraid, it washes out easily, especially if you use Manic panic. Manic panic does not have metallic salts in it, therefore it naturally fades a little bit after every wash. This is great if you like to mix it up. The color of the blorange will take differently on all parts of your hair where you have different colors. The trick is using the tone that you like to mix and you will love the variation that you have no matter how it picks up.

Instructions:

Pick two Manic Panic creamtone colors you like: one on the rosey side, one on the golden side. Take a little bit of each and mix together. In a separate bowl, put a heaping amount of white conditioner. It can be any conditioner, so use an inexpensive one that allows you to be liberal with the amount you coat on your hair. Take your mix of color and slowly add it to the conditioner.

*NOTE* The color you see in the bowl is going to be the color that your hair turns. That’s why you need to add it slowly. If you want it more on the pastel side just add a tiny bit, if you want it more vibrant, add accordingly. Have fun with it!

 

Below is a few of my favorite IG posts of the color in different variations that I love.

Spring into Hair Color

The Best way to boil down the spring hair color trend is with one word- Sombre. Sombre means soft ombre. No matter what color your hair is; blonde, red, or brunette, its time to create the lightbox around your face and brighten up for the warm weather. There’s definately diferent levels to sombre, you can be as natural or as dramatic as you wish, but the idea is to have a darker root and lighter ends, but the soft part is to have highlights that break up the root and blend into the lighter ends.. Here’s a few examples that we love.

Blondes- Honey to platinum, short to long. Here’s some of our fav’s.

Color Trend: Rose Gold Glossy Tones

Blonde hair is all the range in the summer. The lighter the better. As we mentioned in the past weeks Platinum has been on trend all year. But with Platinum comes an urge to take our glossy tones to another level. This is why unicorn/ mermaid colors are also on front street. They wash out easily and with just enough time to sneak in a new color. Keeping our hair fresh and funky. To keep them all guessing what to do next. This being said, having fun with toners is definitely trending. Ask your stylist what would look best with your skin tone. There are an array of rose gold blonde tones you can have fun with. Step outside the box and join the party. Here’s some of our favorites below …

BET Awards: Platinum Hair Is Where Its At

The BET Awards was this past Sunday and these Dames always turn it out. We were feelin’ all the glam vibes on the red carpet this season, but there was a trending color on the carpet we could not deny. PLATINUM. This color is nothing new or different, Marilyn did it, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, even the ever trending Kim Kardashian. Its safe to say, you need confidence and a kick ass hairstylist to pull it off, but I think its clear the ladies on the red carpet did a fine job!!
