Springing back into the swing of things!

Hey I’m back, after a long winters nap. Spring has sprung and so have I! Spent the winter hibernating as many of us do. I’m so excited to “spring” back into the swing of things. With that said…what’s in the spring forecast for fashion and hair?

Being that I’m a hairstylist I’m always inspired by the latest beauty/hair trends. Spring is the perfect time for transformation. I’m seeing everything from baby bangs, a soft fringe, lobs, long textured cuts, to a-line shags and of course those soft beachy waves and half up buns and ponytails. Let’s not forget about color! I know every girl wants those sun-kissed highlights and wanting to achieve them with the balayage technique (a technique for highlighting the hair in which the color is painted on in such a way as to create a graduated, natural-looking effect.) You’ll see that reds are being updated with cooper highlights and deep, one-color tones. One of my favorite trends right now is the deep side part. No I’m not talking about the Donald Trump comb over. It’s the part that gives you instant volume and can change up your look with minimal effort. I’m loving the deep part and ear tuck in action!

Ok ok let’s talk spring fashion!!

The cold shoulder: Seen on the runways from NY to Paris, nothing is less sexy and playful then off the shoulder tops and dresses. There’s plenty of room to accessorize with bare shoulders!  (below I’ll show you the recent off the shoulder trends I’ve purchased.)

High slits: I mean come on…how could you forgot Taylor Swift rocking that two-piece, high slit little number at the Grammy’s?! Talk about HOT HOT HOT !! Whether it be a dress or a skirt, ladies get ready and show some leg because this sky high trend is everywhere!! Below I’ll show you the latest high slit 2 piece i just wore in Vegas.

Pretty in Pink: Let’s spring-ify your wardrobe with shades of pink.

Lace Ups: Ones that crisscross and wrap around the ankle and some that even go as high as the knee. These ladylike lace ups are a must have for this season.

Shoulder-Duster Earrings: These extra long beauties instantly elongate your face and neck and go well with the off the shoulder trend.

I could go on and on about the latest trends but for now I’ll keep this short and sweet!

Thanks for stopping by,
