Summer’s here, and the look for summer 2017 is all about pastel colours! Especially in the Goldwell colour line, which will be coming out with a brand new pastel colour line this July. The great thing about these colours is that you are able to apply them on the blondest of blondes, but also on medium light brown. There are 5 new shades, lavender, peach, mint, rose, and indigo! They can last up to 4-6 weeks, and the best part? They are not damaging to your own hair! It’s almost like you can choose crayon colours to pick which shade you like, or mix colours together to get that desired look you want. Goldwell also has a speciality colour called ‘Elumen’. This is another great fashion colour line, if you’re looking for that kick. Elumen is much longer lasting. It is a hair colour that eluminates the hair intensly from inside out to get that vibrant, even colour. Whether it’s the unicorn look, or just some peek-a-boo’s it’s an amazing way to spruce up and give yourself a brand new look! It’s summertime, why not brighten up your hair with some funk?!

In today’s world hair braids have become one of the biggest trends. Something so simple and classic that they may be used in everyday life, formal styles and even in the biggest catwalks. The Kardashians have introduced the dutch braid as a casual but still chic look. Their iconic look is the most popular and known as two single dutch braids on each side. Another simple everyday look loved by our DeBerardinis staff; includes french braids halfway into a mini messy bun. Braids are one of the easiest and least time consuming when it comes to your daily looks. A simple soft braid down the back or to the side can change your hair from just ‘meh’ to WOW! Even for the busy moms with no time to spare in the mornings, they could do a quick clean braid to keep their daughters hair back and looking cute. If you’re going for a more formal look, a side braid with loose curls is one of the most popular, and never goes out of style. The half-updo with loose curls, and waterfall braids in the back is a very trendy choice among our grad and prom girls. They are a super traditional style that have been quickly growing into much more creative looks. Whether it be soft swept, super harsh, or clean sleek look, braids can fit in for any age, any occasion, and any hair type, long or short. They are so diverse with many variations that I don’t see this trend going anywhere anytime soon!
Braids are life!

Nail extensions have always been around for a long time now, but have you heard of extending your natural nails, without using the traditional tips and glue method? That’s right! You can extend your nails without using plastic tips or a single drop of harmful nail glue! It’s called sculpted nail form extensions. Basically how they’re done is by sticking the “form sticker” directly under the natural free edge of each nail to act as a platform, then gel is applied right onto the nail and the form sticker to your desired nail thickness and length. Once the gel is cured, the form sticker is removed and you will be left with a longer nail without the use of a tip. This allows the nail to be completely smooth. It creates a much stronger bond to the nail which helps to prevent the nail from cracking or snapping in half. Refills are done the same way, typically in about 3-4 weeks. Needless to say that once you’ve tried this method, there’s no going back!

This season trees aren’t the only thing being decorated and bejeweled. With the New Year coming why not try a new trend. Some of the newest looks are a true form of art and creativity; for both men and women alike. Glitter roots have been around the hair circuit mainly for music festival goers. But for this holiday season why not pair up some nice braids and a pop of color with glitter. And for the men glitter beards have been trending along with beard ornaments; those still have room to grow in popularity thou. Also the newest trend Instant tint temporary sprays with stencil work have been turning your holiday hair bows and hair bands into old news. And for those of you who are not into glitter but still want a pop of colour why not try a festive streak? Ladies and men of all ages have been adding small colour accent pieces to spruce up their look. Even if you don’t want a permanent piece you can always add a color extension for versatility.
If glitter and colour pops are still not your cup of a tea; some soft swept looks can always make your look elegant for those holiday parties. For the girls some cute curls and perhaps a hair bow, literally can dress up any look. Braids and loose curls paired with a nice broach to match your outfit is always a simple yet classic look to make you feel extra festive. Whatever your style and hair requests feel reassured that our team can fill your hair needs.

These days we all love change, and get bored pretty easily. Therefore we are constantly changing our look from our clothes, our makeup, and especially our hair. We go lighter to darker and back to light again. These processes can be quite damaging on our hair, along with the damage from hot tools, and even the elements outside. We all want to maintain the healthiest hair that we can. When olaplex came out it changed the hair game for the better!!! We are now able to push the boundaries further then before, and it’s all because of the chemistry that has gone into making these great products. When we lighten hair what we are doing is breaking down the bonds in the individual hair strands. That is what creates the damage. When we use Olaplex or the Goldwell Bondpro+, what’s happening is it’s keeping some of your bonds intact, so your hair remains stronger and healthier then without the treatments. It’s a 2 step treatment in the salon while your hair is being lightened. Then there is a 3rd step that you can purchase to take home to help maintain the strength of your hair. If you are one of these individuals that enjoy changing your hair up, I highly recommend always including one of these treatments with your service for your best results.
Long gone are the bowl cuts from mom in the kitchen those dull scissors that are usually cutting vegetables being repurposed as cutting sheers, your mom reassuring herself that she can do this and it will look good. These kids of 2016 have evolved into young men and women with the way they dress, talk, interact with each other, music they listen to and their surroundings. With the technology we have now kids are smarter than ever before having all the knowledge of the world at their little fingertips.
Yesterday I found myself having a very intellectual conversation in my salon chair, at the end of the haircut I asked the young man how old he was and he proudly said 9. He didn’t need his parents for a consultation he knew exactly what he wanted, sometimes I have a hard time figuring out what someone twice his age wants. For some reason when we were all that age we were constantly lying about it making ourselves older because we all looked so young. Most of us cringe at the sight of a childhood photo in the future these kids will display them proudly.
So where is the root of all this? Fashionable celebrities that grew up and had kids of their own have moulded them to have the same type of style. It’s easy to say we all look to celebs to find out what’s in style they are the ones who are attending fashion shows and have 10 people who they consult with so why not copy them? I really started to see young boys caring about their haircuts around the time of “the justin bieber” style short edgy sides with long bangs pushing forward, moms and kids everywhere went nuts for this one half of them didn’t want to admit that was the cut they were asking for but described it to the tee. With the craze of The Hunger Games came “the Katniss Everdeen” little girls everywhere asking to grow their hair long and learn different braids. Over the past year lots of young boys asking for “the Josh Donaldson” I’m not really into baseball but quickly searched the name before anyone could realize that I didn’t know who he was talking about. So far in 2016 lots of young girls asking me to cut long bobs on them I was wondering where it came from until one said “the Kylie Jenner”.
I think for the most part it’s great to see kids evolving but like anything it can get a bit carried away as well. Next time you catch yourself eyeballing a kid because they are dressed better then you instead of getting mad and saying “how old are they? 5 or 35? Just think they will never know what it’s like to grow up without computers, smart phones and ugly school photos.

Taking it to the next level: Kerastase Nutritive
Dry hair requires a lot of our attention. It’s dull, brittle and hard to detangle. The condition depends on a variety of factors such as genetics, or daily habits. Blow-drying, ill-suited products or repeated coloring are all factors that can contribute to hair sensitization. Because of these many different causes, there are several types of dry hair.
Introducing the new and improved Kerastase Nutritive line. More premium, more modern, more iconic. Irisome: for normal to dry hair. Magistral: dry to severly dry. Protocole immunite: all levels of dryness. With the invention of long-lasting nutrition, Kérastase Nutritive acts on both the cause of hair nutrition loss—oxidation—as well as on the consequences—dryness. The Nutritive line offers different levels of haircare repair for dry hair. The first level nutrition Nutritive Irisome is ideal for normal to dry hair. For very dry and sensitized hair, the Magistral line is perfect and will protect against heat tools.
Glucose: delivers an energic boost of nutrition
