Before and After: Blonde Balayage

In the hair world, technique is everything. Not all stylists can do the hair coloring balayage technique, so make sure if you want to go that route that your stylist knows how to do it properly. With balayage the hand painting, or sweeping, on color is very precise.

Jonathan & George colorist Dani Hernandez shows us a before and after of a balayage color he did on a client wanting to lift her color but definitely wanting to have a more natural looking shade. Stylist Allie Paronelli completed the look with a shorter mid-length cut and style. before and after hair photos

2015 – The New Waves

emilio pucci spring 2015 rtwThe New Year always brings about change and an awareness for whats ‘new and now’. This Spring we can look forward to a new ‘wave’ of hairstyle. Inspired by the runway looks at the Emilio Pucci Spring 2015 show, we advise to get that curling or flat iron out to create this look. There are endless tutorials online to create ‘beachy’ waves, but our quick lowdown is be sure to use a texturizing product or light hold hairspray to ensure the effortless looking curls stay intact. When done curling, softly brush out your hair so the look doesn’t seem too intentional, then part your hair down the middle. Done!
