Spring Trend Alert

As the season unfolds, we will see more trends defined. Here are some things to look out for already:

We will start to see the dark color trend fade away a bit and see lighter colors taking over. We are also seeing more personalized colors. The big nail color companies are adding fun twists (shatters, glitters, and shimmers) which go on top of your base color to give you a signature look. Shatter was introduced by OPI earlier this year; it gives a crackle paint finish to your overall polish look. So fun!

We are seeing a spin back to the 70s; big and fluffy with lots of texture. Also, ponytails. Do they ever go out of style? We saw different versions of the ponytail on the runway - from super sleek, to pulled back with some pieces pulled loosely around face, to a ponytail with a middle part and then pulled back. Very fun!

Braids are still in the forefront in a huge way as well. We will see their influence more in the Boho type looks; they are super feminine and pretty. I'm so excited!

We have also been seeing either super short pixie cuts or long hair. One huge hair trendsetter, Jennifer Aniston, recently cut her long locks into a long bob. Basically, it looks like 'everything goes' this Spring with haircuts.

For redheads, a multidimensional color will be trendsetting. Try an almost burgundy red near the root turning into a bright copper at the ends. Make sure the colors blend in seamlessly.

For brunettes, warm it up. Use lots of caramel and golden colors to warm up that dark base of yours and shed those winter blahs.

For blondes, we are still seeing the ombre technique (which is getting bigger locally as more people are getting brave enough to try it). This technique works really well with blondes to give them a California beach look. Think Drew Barrymore. She has those darker roots fading into a bright sunny blonde at the ends. Such a fun trend right now!

Bright colors are still in. Oranges and pinks are the big thing. Also, stains and cremes are going to be huge for spring. Stains are highly pigmented and last for a long time. You can use these on the lips and cheeks. We have the Mirabella Lip & Cheek Ink and we love it, but you can find these stains in nearly every large makeup line right now. Play with them and have fun!
