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.

Trending: Texture.. Go Big Or Go Home

Texture is usually always on trend in the summer. Time to let our natural wave go and get a little body, texture and frizz ( the good kind). However its not just summer. Its a go big or go home few seasons in general.  Whether your putting your hair into a ponytail, an up do, or you have short hair, long hair, a polished style, a messy style.. all of it needs texture!  How can you bring out your natural texture?  Let your hair air dry, use beach sprays, texture sprays, and even if you blow dry it and curl it with an iron get in there and back comb  it then spray your favorite texture spray.  Here are a few examples of what we mean:

Don’t be afraid of looking messy, you can always polish your texture with polishing creams or your favorite pomade. Just put a little on your finger tips and run through pieces of your hair.

Messy Hairstyles for Classy Parties

As we all know its summertime. Summer calls for a few Trends when it comes to hairstyles and looking good, 1 is braids, 2 is texture, 3 is parties. Now, there is a fine line between texture that looks intended and a hot mess. You don’t want to be the hot mess. How do we know what how to be classy instead of messy? Let The hair Dame show you the difference…

 

ClASSY

HOT MESS

HOT MESS

Dont do this to your self. YOu can make big messy hair look classy and these are the rules on how to do it….

 

Rule #1-

You need half of the hairstyle polished and groomed. If your wearing a messy ponytail, make sure the sides and top are sleek and slicked. If your doing a messy braid, make sure only the braid is messy and the sections going into it are neat. If your wearing a braid as an accessory mixed in with loose hair, make sure the loose hair has a shape and is somewhat polished .

Rule #2-

Make sure your teased hair is covered properly. Tease all day, but polish the hair on top so we dont see a rats nest up in there.

Rule #3-

Big hair needs a shape or you will look like hot mess barbie up above. Create a wave in your hair and brush it out if you want a thick voluminous look. you can tease the inside and make it big, but dont leave it straight and stringy.

If you have fine hair, a little beach could give you some much appreciated texture. Just go with it, add in some clip in extensions, try cashmere hair and do a chunky side braid.  We want texture so to juxtapose this make sure the top and part are groomed nicely,  the hair that is down can be big and messy. This is what keeps it looking on purpose messy- not hot mess.

What? you don’t know how to braid?? Don’t worry! The  topknot is still on fuego and going to be a constant go to this summer.  You want to make sure the sides and back are slicked super tight and the knot can be as messy as possible.

You can’t go wrong with a textured long ponytail. You can either use a ponytail piece that you just tie on to your own pony, or you can use the smaller hair extension pieces in your set and layer them- clipped in on top of each other going down the back of your head. Then slick back the sides and tie it up. Spray some Oribe texture spray on and tease it up a bit. Voila!!

The Perfect Beach Hair… Not Meant To Be Perfect!

We are smack in the middle of summer and all you beach bunnies have been asking us how to create the perfect, most authentic looking beach babe waves. Well, wait no longer here are some easy breezy tips.

 

What you need:

1. beach spray (ingredients are actually sea salt + water!)

2. a 1 inch barrel curling iron

3. dry shampoo

 

How to make the magic happen….

1. Its best to begin with day old unwashed hair. Start by spraying dry shampoo directly on your roots. Then hit the roots with a blow dryer.

2.Wrap medium size sections of your hair around a 1″ curling iron.  The waver wand by Babyliss is a great tool for this. You want to start making waves about half way down the section of hair. Also, leave your ends out of the curler to avoid looking overdone. Lastly, alternate wrapping the section towards your face and away from your face to achieve the most natural curl effect.

3. Shake it out with your hands. If the waves are a little tight, use a little light brush to smooth them out.

4. Spritz your beach spray all throughout your hair, focusing on your ends and… VOILA!

 

 

 

 

Quick Tips, Trendy Spring/Summer Styles

Protect Your Tresses!

As the temps rise, our temptation to stay in the sun at any opportunity does too! Being a spontaneous girl means not always having a spray-in spf for hair on hand at all times. Should you find yourself at an impromptu pool party, beach stroll, outdoor lunch or convertible joyride, consider keeping one of these chic protectors in your car or purse, just in case. The sun, as glorious as it is, can dry out much of the moisture out of your hair. This will fade your color quickly, give you crunchy ends and may even burn your scalp, damaging the roots. We say, cover it up!

Hats! Whether it’s a fedora, wide-brim or something off-the-wall like Paris’ captain look, a cool cap is an easy go-to.

Scarves and turbans are the best bet for the fashion forward dame. The options are endless when it comes to topping it off with this look. First, it’s all about the print and texture – tribal, monogram, solid, neon, vintage, and so on. Then, deciding which way to wrap it! Turbans may not have the versatility of a scarf, but it’s an uber-chic way for impressing while protecting. Smart and beautiful! That a dame!

Ombre: Dead or Revive for Summer?

Trends can become redundant sometimes. When it hits fast and hard most of us get bored quickly. However when it comes to ombre, most people don’t realize it has in fact been around for many years – and if you ask us, it’s not going away any time soon.

Ombre is a french word that means fading from dark to light. It was meant to resemble the color of a child’s hair. Natural color on children tends to be light around the face and hairline and then dark at the root and fade to light on the ends. This is a youthful, natural look.  Kris Sorbie of Redken claims to be the inventor of this color trend. So, like it or not this youthful look will be sticking around and as summer approaches we will see different variations of this concept on of all our favorite celebs.
