Spring into Style…
After a long, cold winter – we are all looking forward to Spring and Summer! Here’s a rundown of some of the hottest looks seen on the Fashion Runways in New York, Paris, London and Milan…
BOBS are back. Long bobs (think Gwynneth Paltrow) are very popular, while some more daring clients may opt for the shorter, cheek-skimming bobs. They can be worn with no bangs, side swept bangs, or edgy, choppy short bangs. TIP: Don’t over-apply product – a little bit of Kimera Haircare Styling Potion will provide all-day control without feeling stiff or sticky.
Short crops were also spotted, not just on the models, but in the audience as well (think Jennifer Lawrence and Ginnifer Goodwin). They give you lots of style versatility, as they can be worn classic and sleek, or piecy and playful. TIP: Kimera Molding Putty is a great styling tool for these looks.
Of course, if you want to keep your hair long – there are styling options as well. Low ponytails kept slick and shiny always look pretty, and are a great go-to in case you get caught in a Spring or Summer rain-shower. Keep one or two hairbands (and maybe a cute little accessory) on hand so you’ll always be ready. Side-parted and sleek is another option. TIP: A boar-hair styling brush will smooth the hair, and Pliable Polish from CHI will flatten down any fly-aways and give you natural-looking shine.
Super-straight looks were spotted on the runways as well. If you love your hair straight, consider an Opti-Smooth service. It eliminates frizz, reduces curl, and cuts drying time in half.
More casual looks included fuss-free waves. An easy way to this achieve this look is by diffusing damp hair with a little bit of Curl Defining Elixir by Biolage. Or – try braiding damp hair before bedtime and releasing the braid in the morning. Speaking of braids – Side-swept braids are still a big fashion DO – and they are perfect for the beach or poolside. TIP: “Second-day hair” can be kept looking fresh with Clean Remix Dry Shampoo from Matrix – be sure to keep some in your weekend bag.
As far as HAIR COLOR is concerned, Summer is time for BLONDES – which range from icy cool tones to sunny golden tones, and even natural darker blondes with subtle, shimmery highlights. TIP: Keep your blonde looking bright, but not brassy – by using SoSilver Shampoo by Matrix once a week.
The Ombre look is still popular – and its minimal maintenance makes it a perfect choice for summer color.
Coppery Auburn is usually thought of as an autumn color – but it was spotted on the runways – and the summer sun really makes this color SHINE. TIP: Keep this color vibrant by shampooing 3 or 4 times a week – using Kimera’s Color Retention System – proven to help reduce color fading.
Consult with your Kimera stylist to determine what cut, color and style is just perfect for you! Keep your hair healthy and shiny with regular trims, the right home-care products, and with a Conditioning Shine Treatment at your next salon visit.
