Spring Up Your Style!

The Silver- Grey Movement

Who knew grey hair would become one of the most “must-have” hair trends of 2014/2015?

So many women and men spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars a year at salons to cover up their grey hair, and now people are spending hundreds to achieve the icy or slate grey look! I am a huge advocate for this hair colour. It is unique and is so versatile when it comes to formulating the colour. To achieve the perfect grey, it is a lot of trial and error as a stylist. Play around with different products and don’t be afraid to experiment! If you are considering joining the grey movement, there is one con to achieving this hair colour; your stylist will have to lighten (bleach) your hair until it is a level 11, which is basically a white-blonde and then apply the grey/ silver formula. This can be a very damaging and long process and I would recommend that you invest in a good deep conditioner such as Eufora’s Urgent Repair Treatment (available at my salon, Lucido Hair Studio). Please remember that your hair isn’t invincible! If you’re looking for a low maintenance hairstyle, try a rooty- grey! Choose a colour close to your natural for the root area and balayage it throughout your hair along with the grey. It looks amazing if it’s done right, I promise! Join the grey movement!

Flattering Fringes

What better time than spring to decide whether you’re ready to commit to bangs or not?! If you decide that you’re not cut out for a life with bangs, there’s enough time to grow them out before summer!

The good thing about bangs is that they can draw attention to your best features, especially your eyes and lips, while also framing the face. Brow-length brows are great for showing off your eyes. Depending on your face shape and facial features, there are many different types of bangs to suit you; blunt bangs, side-swept bangs, whispy bangs, asymmetrical bangs, betty bangs (for a very edgy look), etc. Bangs are a great way to switch up a plain hairstyle. A con to bangs is the maintenance. They need to be trimmed often enough and you have to be committed to styling them. Also, beware of any

cowlicks along your hairline! If you have a cowlick, bangs may not be for you unless you are really willing to work on styling them. Otherwise you will be stuck with awkward, splitting bangs for a little while! Always, always, always consult with your stylist first! They know best!
