When it comes to fashion transitioning into a spring-filled wardrobe is so easy! Try switching out your darker colors for lighter and brighter colors and incorporate some pastel shades. Also, try adding in pops of color if you’re not quite ready for such a dramatic change! A classic spring look is adding some floral patterns. The great thing about fashion in any season is being to customize to fit your personal style, it’s all about what makes you feel comfortable and confident! Whether you’re more edgy or feminine and light you can find a spring style perfect for you!  When looking for a little “spring-spiration” there are many places to look from your social media like Instagram and Pinterest to your fave celebrity it’s so easy to get inspired!

When it comes to your makeup there are many options to spruce up your look for the spring time. Spring is the perfect time to experiment with color and get playful. It’s time to ditch those dark vampy winter lips and bring out more of your fun & bright lipsticks. If you are into more a fresh or natural look spring is a perfect time to break out your simpler looks featuring a glowy complexion! With the newest makeup trend of “strobing” seen on many cat walks at NYC Fashion Week this year, spring is the perfect time to play around with this technique! If you are up for something new and exciting try introducing new colors into your eye looks and lipsticks! Try adding some rosy tones or teals (if you’re feeling daring) to your eyes or maybe break out a bright fuchsia or coral lip stick- it’s in your hands!

Last but not at all least, your hairstyle! Whether your change is as simple as switching up your part or a complete color change, there are so many options! If you’re someone that typically wears a very straight style try going for a loose and beachy wave (after all summer is that far away!). Or say you usually go for a classic deep side part try out a more bohemian & easy-going middle part. If you’re up for a dramatic change maybe try going for a lighter and more sun kissed look after the gloom of the winter time. If you’re maybe up for a little bit more fun change, try amping u your look with a fun color! Another great option if you are not quite ready for such a big change just try out some fun up-dos and half up styles (Pinterest and Youtube are crawling with tutorials to help you!).

Golden Globes Red Carpet

The 2016 Golden Globes Red Carpet was full of not only jaw-dropping dresses and ensembles, but also many dazzling hairstyles! A look that was quite popular was a very sleek and easy to wear wave that really let these stars dresses and accessories shine. Stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Olivia Wilde rocked this look in a center part while Giuliana Rancic and Emmy Rossum took a different approach with a deep side part. They all looked breath-taking with this simple but totally classy look. This look has been super popular lately and rocked by stars and also everyday women found all over social-media like Instagram and Pinterest. I personally love this look because of its wear ability while looking super put together. This style can be rocked with many lengths of hair as well from your “Lobs” to your “Rapunzel” types. This look is incredibly versatile and is great for work, a girls-night out, or any special event.

 

This look can be created with ease with the help of some KMS California products and the proper tools. A style starts in the shower, the products you use here easily prep your hair for the style you will be doing. Begin with the Silk Sheen Shampoo and Conditioner to give your hair that smooth and sleek appearance. Towel-dry your hair and Spray some Hair Play Playable Texture to add texture that won’t leave you feeling sticky. Then work in some Tame Frizz Taming Creme from mid-shaft to ends to give your hair that sleek finish. Finish off your product application with the Free Shape Quick Blow-Dry Spray to cut your drying time in half and add heat protection. Start the style by choosing your part whether that be that classic side swept look or an easy going middle part. Begin blow drying with either a vented paddle brush or a larger round brush to smooth your hair first. Then go in with a curling wand or simply use a traditional curling iron without the clip to add some wave, you can exclude the very ends to give a more undone look or alternate the direction of the curls for a more natural look. Remember hairstyles are customizable, make it your own and have fun!

Untouched to Highlighted Beauty

Untouched to Highlighted Beauty

highlights-at-aurelio-salon-768x768

Our guest, Alyssa, started off with a virgin canvas (so exciting!) She has a natural level of 6, and her canvas consisted of level 8 pieces highlighting her face and disbursed through her ends from the summer. Her eyes have a pale blue tone to them so we decided to go with a neutral look with hints of cool blonde.

For her technique her stylist, Alicia, wanted to do something soft since it was her first time coloring her hair, but also wanted to take advantage of the strength of the hair she has being that her hair was freshly cut and had no chemical damage. So for something subtly striking, she took slices and painted highlights on the outside of the section. She then merged them at the mid-shaft and covered the whole top layer of the section with lightener. In between her slices she did micro weaves to break up the slices and offset the blonde for effective diffusion. Alicia stayed away from the root as she is not a frequent salon visitor. To create longevity, we diffused the root to prevent aggressive new growth.

For her cut and style, we chose to only take a quarter of an inch of her length being that she recently received a haircut. We shaped her layers by point cutting them. Her final result was a soft cool blonde with hints of bright pearly blonde pieces. She was very happy with her first color transformation!

How to Banish Brassiness from Blonde Hair

How to Banish Brassiness from Blonde Hair

Blondes

Blondes,

Do you feel like your light locks don’t stay refreshed until your next hair appointment? There’s a couple reasons you may feel this way and if you do, read on! We identified a few common issues that most blondies aren’t aware of. Here are a few of the most important issues changing your perfect strands into brassy madness.

  • You need a shampoo and conditioner that actively fights the brassy tones that remain in our hair. The best shampoos for blondes are ones that contain a purple or blue base. WHY? Your hair color is made up of the 3 primary colors- blue, yellow, and red. When your color becomes brassy, it means that the blue pigment is leaving your hair (which is typical to fade first). That leaves red and yellow to create a wonderful shade of orangey undertones in your hair. To counteract that business, the blue and purple based shampoos and conditioners constantly replace the blue bases in your hair to keep blonde from looking rash. Our recommendation is Goldwell’s Dual Senses Blonde n Highlights shampoo and conditioner. Not only do the shampoo and conditioner have an indigo base, but they leave the hair as smooth and shiny as it was even before the highlights. It neutralizes any yellow tones and provides regenerative care instantly. If you are feeling extra brassy, leave the conditioner on for 15 minutes. This allows the conditioner to really get inside the hair and eliminate yellow tones.
  • Another issue blondes tend to forget is that mineral water, well water, or hard water can SERIOUSLY affect the blonde color in your hair. The iron and minerals cause the hair to INCREASE in warmer tones, taking away the reflective blonde you and your hairdresser have worked so hard for. There is a solution for this, but it is more of a commitment than most people are willing to follow through with. If you are a committed blonde, you should seriously consider purchasing a shower filter. These filters have technology that can transfer iron and minerals to potassium ions which will increase softness in your hair and provide longer lasting color.
  • Every blonde knows what a “toner” or “glaze” is. What they don’t know is that these toners are usually semi-permanent or demi-permanent. This means that the color only lasts for 3-4 weeks (semi) or 4-6 weeks (demi). It is not permanent color. That leaves the tone of the hair brassy before they need to touch up their highlights or blonde color. What blondes need to start doing is seeing their hairdresser within 4-6 weeks to simply refresh their toner. It doesn’t have to be the whole service, just worry about the brassy tones you are seeing. Even if you are a little bit rooted, and feel that you need to get your highlights done, you may not actually need your hair touched up just yet. Just worry about your toner, because over highlighting can cause unnecessary additional damage.

Now that you know how to keep your blonde looking fresh, set up your hair appointments accordingly! It becomes much easier to follow if you set up your appointments in advance! So, remember, proper at home care, shower filters, and toners will keep your blonde the best it can be.

Hair from washed out to WOW!

From washed out to WOW!

hair-washed-out-to-wowSometimes our guests don’t know what suits them best and that’s where an educated hair artist comes into play.  In this situation I had a young woman sit in my chair with a few inches of mousy brown regrowth and bleach blond mid-ends.  She was unsure on what type of look she was going for next so naturally I started brainstorming a few ideas in my head based on her style and appearance.  We both decided to go with a rooted look considering she wasn’t too fond of high maintenance color like her blonde.  I suggested a beautiful pearly raspberry color because I felt that her personality paired perfectly with a fun and funky color.   Her ends were extremely porous and over processed so I filled that area to ensure our desired color would be achieved and also last in her hair.  Next, I went in at her root with the desired color and 3% lotion for no lift to give it a deeper appearance than the already lighter ends. After I applied the root, I went in with the same formula and brought it directly over the filler color.  I knew it would appear a bit lighter due to how light the strands already were.  Finally, we did an all over color balancing using the same color but a demipermanent to give back a little moisture and add shine.
