Spring is in the Hair!

This Spring don’t just update your wardrobe, update your hair!

Get together with one of our professional stylists and get ready for a new fresh hair style and hair colour.

Your Best Style: Face shape is a key part of a haircut. Wondering why certain haircuts don’t look good on you? It’s usually your face shape that comes into play. Work with your stylist on this.

 Oval: You are oval if the length of your face is greater than the width. Oval faces can really play with all types of haircuts depending on hair texture. Add a fringe and your face will become more square looking, while a mid-length cut with some layers adapted to your hair texture adds movement. 

 Square: The width and length of your face is similar with a broad jaw line and forehead. You can go with harder lines in your cut, such as a shorter bob. Cut a fringe to accent the jaw line or go with longer hair and shorter layers to add texture and soften the face. Careful: very short hair can look hard.

 Round: The width and length is quite similar, but there’s a circular feeling to the overall face shape. Short hair is for you! If short hair is not your thing, keep it all one length. Also stick to more classic cuts that are mid-length or long. Bobs can make the face look rounder and often are not flattering.

 Heart: If your cheekbones and forehead are wider and you have a delicate chin, you are heart shape. You are a candidate for a straight across fringe. This shape is close to an oval, so you too, have versatility when it comes to the styles you can pull off. Great look – a shorter disconnected bob.

 Long: Your face is longer than it is broad – often narrow in width, and with high cheekbones. Long hair works with some shorter layers cut in to add shape and framing to the face. Bangs can also help in making your face appear shorter—adding width will create the perception of less vertical length to your face.

Hair colour update:

This Spring, brunettes will go richer. These shades are also low-maintenance. If you want to maintain dimension, ask your hairstylist to highlight with amber to auburn shades.

It’s a big year for redheads too. Coppers, gingers and auburn hair with some blonde elements mixed in look great on fair skinned beauties. Also a little ‘drop root’ about half a shade darker than mid shaft and ends provides dimension.

Sun-kissed blonde stands out in the crowd. Ask your hairstylist to create dimension with the help of balayage techniques and baby blonde highlights strategically placed throughout your hair.

Platinum blonde is still on trend. Having platinum blonde means spending time and money on ‘protection’ to maintain your hair’s condition. Your stylist will recommend quality hair products so your hair is healthy and shiny rather than dull and damaged.

Rosegold and pastels are a real trend for those who are a little more daring and willing to experiment. Mermaid hair tones with light shades of pink and blue being at the center of it all. Violets, purples and plums are also popular as Ultra Violet was named Pantone’s Color of the Year.

Remember a hair ‘style’ is not just following a fashion trend but a matter of choosing a cut and colour that makes you look your best and is best suited to your lifestyle.
