Cranberry Craze makeup! by Alicia Kiwacz

Cranberry Craze makeup! by Alicia Kiwacz


In this make-up look, I wanted to introduce the versatility of natural golden tones between every day make-up looks and evening looks.

For both of these looks, I used the express palette from BeautyAddicts Cosmetics.

Here is a list of the rest of the products used:

  • SleekCheeks- Seduce
  • DoubleDeception-02
  • Light+Medium-Pressed Powder
  • EffortlessEyes-Seduce
  • GlimmerSheers-Express

For the top look, I used SweetLips (Seduce) lip liner and blended with Femme Fatale lipstick. This would be your night out look.

In the bottom photo, I used SweetLips motivate lip liner and blended with Affair lipstick. Comparable with the “Kylie Jenner Nude Lip” .

Have fun re-creating these looks this holiday season!

Sea foam green to stunning rose gold! by Tim Maguire

Sea foam green to stunning rose gold! by Tim Maguire

This particular client was quite the challenge. She came in with about 4in of new growth with old highlights on her ends that were a faded mint green. She had, months before, colored her hair herself at home to make it lavender. The green was the faded out result.

I proceeded to touch up her highlights with formula A. After this part was processed, I rinsed and shampooed with DualSenses Fade Stop Shampoo. I tried to loosen up the color on her ends by using Malibu Crystal Gel for 15min under the dryer.

Next, I rinsed out the Crystal Gel and toned the hair with formula B for 10min. I then rinsed out the toner and shampoo with Elumen Wash. Next, glaze with formula C. Process for 15min under the dryer. Rinse out until the water runs clear. Shampoo using Elumen Wash again, and then apply Elumen Lock and process 5min. rinse and condition with Elumen Treat.

To stylep; use Elumen Care, Glamour Whip and Elixer. Blow dry smooth to enhance softness, shine, and brilliance of the color.

Dusty lavender to vivid violet! by Tim Maquire

Dusty lavender to vivid violet by Tim Maguire

My guest came into the salon with a very faded, dusty lavender color. After trying pastel purple with not much luck, she decided it was time to deepen her color. After consulting with my guest, she finally decided on a very vivid, deep violet.

For the first past of her color, I sectioned the hair into quadrants. Starting at the nape, I sprayed her hair with Structure Equalizer Spray, to even out the porosity of her hair. Next, I applied formula A roots to ends and I processed for 30min.
After formula A processes, wash hair, but DO NOT condition. Back at the chair, completely dry hair, and re-section into quadrants. Begin to apply formula B to the mid-shaft and ends. After all the ends are covered, apply formula B to the new growth and process for 30min. wash and condition with Goldwell DualSenses Fade Stop shampoo and conditioner.
Before styling, I completed the color service with DualSenses Color Locking Serum.

To style, I applied Goldwell Jelly Boost to the roots around the crown and I applied Goldwell Glamour Whip to the ends of the hair. Blow dry to give the hair volume and body. Finish the style with Goldwell Magic Finish hairspray and Diamond Gloss shine spray.

If you like this look and wish to have it for yourself make an appointment with Tim! He is a stylist in our Howell and Toms River location.

Stylist of the month for November is element 3 stylist, Cheryl!

Her favorite style equation is hot flex creme + quick blow dry + 2 in 1 styling and finishing spray. Hot flex creme is good for coarse or unruly hair. It is a heat protectant and humidity resistant creme. Quick blow dry speeds up drying time by 50%, conditions the hair and provides heat protection. This product gets sprayed onto towell dried hair after all other styling products are in. 2 in 1 styling and finishing spray is perfect for straightening and curling on dry hair. To use this product spray by sectioning for best result. After styling spray again as a final step to hold your style.

Create many different styles using the products you already have

By Tim Maguire Hairstylist at Aurelio Salon Howell and Toms River.

Have you ever wondered how to create many different styles using the products you already have? Many of the products from KMS California have many different uses. Aside from what these products are set out to do, many of these great products have alternate uses; giving them versatility and making them go just a little bit farther. Just by applying products in a different order or just by adding a little heat can completely change how a product works.

Messing Crème  on wet hair, apply to ends of your hair before a blowout and top with either, Use De- Frizz Oil or Polishing Serum for a piecey, flippy blowout. on dry hair this adds a lot of fun texture and fullness. This will give you that second-day, lived-in look.

Dry Wax
spray onto ends of wet hair before blowing out for some soft texture and a
light hold.  This product is geared for people with short hair to create texture with a light hold. Also, this is a great product for guys who are looking for control without having any heavy products or hairsprays in their hair.
Clay crème by itself, this will give great texture and separation. This is great for people who want a stronger hold without making the hair crunchy.
You can heat this product with a blow-dryer to make it smoother and more workable. Great for updo’s and getting a smooth look and strong hold on short hair.

Free Shape
Hot Flex Spray
- Use in wet hair to give you a light hold, shine, and heat protection.
- Use on day old hair to re-blow dry. Just spray onto hair and smooth with a blow dryer and round brush.
- Great on dry hair for tight curls and updo’s.


Curl Up
Wave Foam
-use on curly hair when air drying or diffusing to help accentuate the natural
curl of the hair.
-use before a blowout, on wet hair, for soft and shiny hair with a little extra condition.

From Grey to Heyyy… By Jenna Pace

This guest came to me with 100% grey hair from roots to ends.  After being all grey for a few years, she was ready for a new darker look!  We had a thorough consultation and decided to make her a dark brunette with a hint of a red/copper tone.  When coloring 100% grey hair it’s best to use permanent hair color to prevent fast fading. Determine what level the guest would like to achieve and make sure the color you choose together is dark enough to completely cover the grey.

Formulate using mostly from the “N” series with 20 volume developer for the best coverage possible. Always apply starting at the root first then combing through the ends if needed. Make sure to let the color process on the head for the full time needed, which is generally 30-45 minutes.

After giving her the round layered bob that she desired, I applied Goldwell’s Double Boost and Sleek Perfection.  She then received a voluminous sleek style finished with Goldwell’s Big Finish.

To properly maintain colored hair an appointment for a touch up is needed about every 3-5 weeks. For best results it’s good to use color safe shampoo and conditioner for at home care between salon visits. In addition to help prevent fading, avoid excess sun exposure and chlorine water. Also using cool water to rinse your hair will help the color last longer and will add more shine. Follow these easy tips and stay looking younger for longer!

How to keep your color fresh and vibrant all season long at Aurelio Salon! By Sam Harris

How to keep your color fresh and vibrant all season long at Aurelio Salon! By Sam Harris

At Aurelio salon, we strive to keep you beautiful in between color services. Whether you have highlights, fantasy colors, or just a clear glaze, we can help your hair look fabulous until your next visit.

Lasting color starts with a color safe shampoo and conditioner. One of Goldwell’s patented technologies is Chroma Color Complex; this not only prevents fading but brings vibrancy and shine to your color. Our color fade stop shampoo and conditioner deliver this technology while intensifying color brilliance.

Healthy hair retains color longer than damaged hair. We have a variety of 60 second treatments to suit specific hair needs. These treatments seal the cuticle preventing color fade and frizz while increasing shine and manageability. Treating hair can be done in the salon or at home for a weekly dose of nourishment.

Goldwell’s Color Locking Serum is a must have for beautiful color retention. This quick in salon service instantly locks in color, intensifies color brilliance, and preserves color for an extra twenty-two washes. Our at home Color Serum Spray works alongside the Locking Serum to prevent free radicals and sun exposure from affecting your color. This lightweight nourishing spray has UV filters protecting hair from UVA and UVB, which effect hair even during the colder months. Patented Mircofluid Technology allows the serum to be sprayed deeper in the hair’s cuticle nourishing from the inside out. Taking care of your color at home is simple and luxurious with this one step serum spray.

Avoid well water, chlorine, and sun as much as possible in between visits, all have color stripping qualities and dry out hair allowing color to look dull. If you are frequently exposed to these elements, spray a leave in conditioner such as our Color Serum Spray before exposure to give protection to the hair.

You can always stop in to freshen up with our ammonia free glaze service. IntraLipid technology actually replenishes lost lipids (healthy oils) back into the hair follicle while processing. If your color feels a little dull this quick service will rejuvenate your color and add incredible shine.


We offer the most advanced and superior hair care we can provide for our guests. At Aurelio salon our stylists know how to create beautiful color and to make it last.

“Rock-a-Billy” Do:

“Rock-a-Billy” Do:By Arielle Michele at Aurelio Salon-Co

So this past week I attended the Molly Tremante class for Men’s Styling and Barbering. Like all of the KMS classes, there were a ton of “a-ha” moments and so many tips and tricks that I can implement within the salon environment.
Barbering is an art that many hairdressers shy away from because they are intimidated by the technicality in a men’s cut. With ANY design, it is all about the shape pf the head; that’s where you’ll find the areas you need more heights, de-bulking, etc. The intimidation with men’s cutting is that you will see everything, but that’s your opportunity to showcase your best work.
Now-a-days, men aren’t all about the wash and go, they want style. Take a look at Jared Leto and his “man bun”, even back to James Dean and his “rock-a-billy” style, these statements require simple styling.

“Rock-a-Billy” Do:
1. Shampoo the hair with HairPlay Texture Shampoo. This will create texture and bulk for style ready hair.
2. Dry the hair, use the FreeShape Quick-Blow-Dry Spray to cut down the time.
3. Apply HairPlay Messing Creme throughout and use the heat from the blow dryer to work and sculpt into desired shape.
