How to Find Your Best Hair Color

Your skin tone determines what hair color best suits you, and natural light is the key to finding that perfect color!  Look at the veins in your arms in natural sunlight.  If they have a greenish tint, you have a warm skin tone and should opt for warm colors.  Veins that are more blue indicate a cool skin tone and suggest using a cool color.

how to find best hair colorMost hair salons have swatches from which to choose a color, but viewing a swatch in a book may lead you to the wrong color because typically, swatches are displayed on a white background.  Use natural sunlight to view the swatch against your face and you will have a much better idea of the best color for your skin tone.

Summer is a great time to make a dramatic change in your hair style and color, and you’ll want to choose carefully based on both the shape of your face and your skin tone.  Your stylist can help you choose the right cut and color, selecting from a variety of this season’s rich mocha and caramel colors, accented with just the right highlights.

The Right Look for the Right Time

(as seen on Studio5)

While there may be a few “classic” cuts, most hairstyles wane with the calendar.  To keep your look current, there are several factors to consider.  Aside from your hair type, your age, and the shape of your face, you must also decide whether you prefer a high- or low-maintenance style.   If you don’t have an hour to spend styling your hair in the morning, an easy “do” is the way to go!

Geometric shapes, harsh cuts, and dark colors are fun ways for the young adult to express personality.  One must also consider where a hairstyle will be worn when experimenting with a variety of styles and colors.  Working at a law office will demand a very different look than a chic retail clothing store.

Women in their 30’s and 40’s don’t have to be stuck with a typical “mommy” style, but easy manageability is probably a high priority.  A medium length with layers or sexy waves and a complimentary color are simple ways to have a fun look that’s easy to maintain.  You can even opt for a cute pixie cut depending upon the shape of your face!

As one matures, there are still several different style options from which to choose.  Layers are flattering in any length hair, but stay away from flat, severe styles that can make you look older.

It’s Brow-Raising!

You may think eyebrows aren’t much to consider, but you’ll be amazed at all you didn’t know once you watch this video!

  • Did you know you should wax above the brow for more definition?
  • Blondes need to wax too!
  • Waxing creates a smoother surface which makes applying makeup faster and easier.
  • No two eyebrows are exactly alike – which one is your favorite?

Even if you missed “mustache March,” you can still come in and see one of our amazing estheticians!

 Snow White & The Huntsman Synopsis

From the Producer of Alice in Wonderland comes a new vision that turns a legendary tale into an action-adventure epic.  The evil Queen Ravenna (Academy Award winner Charlize Theron) will rule forever if she can take the life of Snow White (Kristen Stewart), so she dispatches the Huntsman (Chris Hemsworth) to track her down.  But the wicked ruler never imagined that the Huntsman would train the girl to become a brave warrior, skilled in the art of war.  Filled with intense battles and spectacular visual effects, Snow White and The Huntsman is a thrilling experience that “shouldn’t be missed” (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV).

Expert Suggestions for ‘American Idol’ Megan Joy

Despite her curly blonde hair and broad smile, Megan Joy was not the star ‘American Idol’ chose to keep.  Several local experts chime in with advice for the 23-year-old single mom from Sandy, Utah in an edition of The Salt Lake Tribune.

Studio H2O’s Tuan Tran recommends a very different look from the dull blonde “Utah girl hair” with which she graced the stage.  He believes choosing an asymmetric look with bangs and a much darker color would bring out her natural beauty – especially her cheekbones.  “It’s all about creating buzz,” he says.  By choosing something radical, people can’t help but talk about your hair.

Danny Nappi, Salt Lake City fashion designer, likes her bright-colored sundresses and suggests she pair those with flats instead of heels.  Other experts agree that her quirky personality makes her very likable, but she needs to let her unique personality show in order to capture the attention she deserves.

Just attended the 2010 IBS Hair Show in Longbeach

It was an exciting weekend.  Lots of big companies doing fantastic hair!  Toni & Guy, Vidal Sassoon, Loreal Professional, and many more.  Inspirations seem to come from geometric shapes with different texture.  The bottom has super clean lines with various disconnections ( think bobs with panel angular pieces left out) sometimes it’s permed to give it multi-texture.  Big catwalk hair was the big push by Toni & Guy this year.  Big wire pins were used to wrap the hair around the pins, then flat-ironed and let dry to get that wild, big hair that’s still very uniform.  I tried uploading  the pix, but the camera used has really high pixel and the file is too big for uploading.  I’ll try it later.  Photos can be seen at the salon.
