Spring Hair & Makeup Trends

Spring is the perfect time to purge your closet, get rid of things you've been staring at all winter...and freshen things up a bit. The same goes for your hair and makeup. Here with what's on trend in all things beauty, is Melissa Matthews from Simonson's Salon and Spa.

  1. The Trend: Platinum (icy, white blonde)
  • Blonde hair is always in, but it's getting a brighter twist this season

+ “Mesmerizing, stunning, eye catching” and will completely change your look

+ Most committed hair color –retouch your outgrowth every 3-4 weeks

+ Of course, hitting the bleach bottle is often seen as the epitome of damaging your hair but it is possible to get the look with healthy results.

Expert Tip: Ask your stylist to apply Olaplex before putting it on your hair – maintain integrity of the hair, repair and prevent damage

  1. The Trend: Pin Straight, Ultra-long, One Length Cut
  • INSPIRATION: Jennifer Lopez, Gigi Hadid

+ Break out your flat iron—straight, shiny, and center-parted hair is one of the biggest trends for 2017 and it’s strikingly dramatic!

+ The key to this look is blunt, heavy ends – incorporate HAIR EXTENSIONS (they aren’t going anywhere). Adding extensions will maximize the thickness for full ends which makes your hair look longer.

EXPERT TIP: Pair with a "Sombre hair color" a.k.a soft blends/melted color. Just as the name suggests - it's ombre hair, but softer (or more subtle). Blending multiple shades in order to create a seamless, natural highlighting effect that adds dimension and is low-maintenance.

  1. The Trend: Rose Gold
  •  “THE Girly-Edgy Color Trend for Spring”

+ A subtle way to try a rainbow sherbert/pastel shades without going bold

EXPERT TIP: Mid-length cut styled with beachy waves — “effortlessly cool” look

  1. The Trend: Layered Lob/Tousled Waves/Hair Flip
  • INSPIRATION: Selena Gomez,  Jenna Dewan Tatum, Demi Lavato

+ Many celebrities are trading in their long locks for shorter hair recently

+ Shoulder-grazing textured blunt cut

+ texture through cutting layers throughout the hair

+ Requesting a length that is worn below the cheekbones makes this style SUPER VERSATILE

EXPERT TIP: While warmer temperatures tempt us to go lighter, brunettes should think about opposite side of the spectrum and go richer, like a Chocolate Brown (huge trend right now). It’s a striking color that is complimented by pastels, bright spring colors.
