Spring Hair Show

It finally came! And now, I'm finally writing about it.

Our staff went to the Peerless Beauty Supply Spring Hair & Nail Show at the beginning of May and had a great time. You can see pictures from some of the classes on our flickr page.

What's in and new you ask? I'm so glad you did!

A lot of the spring trends in hair this year are more geometric shapes, and more blunt cuts (but still blended in). Beatles inspired cuts are in fashion as well; Think Dorothy Hamill with a twist. Blunt, full bangs are still traipsing around and lots of really cute disconnected cuts. Disconnected means that it almost looks like two different haircuts are going on at the same time, and not really blended together.

We also saw hidden things in haircuts. For instance, if you part your hair on one side, you can have bangs; Flip it over to the other side, and you don't have any bangs at all. What a great way to switch things up and keep you from getting bored.

Color is very fun and bold. You can get great multi-dimensional looks without a million foils in the head. Bright colors were all the rage and actually looked very flattering and tasteful. Picture a bright red with even brighter red panels. So cute!

We also attended classes by several great artists. We really enjoyed Greg Hinshaw from Sun Valley, Ben Mollin who appeared in the debut season of "Shear Genius," Damien Carney, Award-winning colorist Sue Pemberton, William Whatley from the show "Ambush Makeover," Michael Haase, and many many more influential stylists who were willing to teach us a thing or two about the industry.

Creative Nail (CND) also launched a new product called Shellac that we have been pretty hyped about. It's a nail polish that lasts two weeks (on your hands), dries in minutes, and doesn't have to be filed off. It protects and strengthens your natural nails, and it looks fabulous! It can also be used on the toes for super-shiny, long-lasting color.

We learned lots of other things that would probably bore you all to tears, so we will spare you the details and just let you know that we are excited. If you're bored with your style right now, I bet we have a few solutions for you. ;)
