Karine Herrin, a Master Stylist and Extension Expert at I’m Beautiful Salon in Salt Lake City, Utah, posted this photo of her client on INSTAGRAM and we loved the use of extensions for length and balayage for contrast and a soft ombre.   We contacted her to get her steps, formulas and products used so we could share with you.  Here it is!

 HOW TO:

STEP ONE: All regrowth, which was a natural level 7, was covered using TIGI Copyright Colour with 21 grams of 7/0 and 7 grams of 6/34 with TIGI’s 8.5 volume cream developer.

STEP TWO: Next, Karine used TIGI True Light Lightener with TIGI’s 20 volume cream developer in diagonal back foiled slices going up both sides of the head.

STEP THREE: Allow to process under heat for 25 minutes.

STEP FOUR: After rinsing out color, while still at the shampoo bowl, Karine balayaged all the ends with True Light Lightener and 30 volume cream developer for about 15-20 minutes.

STEP FIVE: After she was rinsed and dried, Karine put 1.5 rows of Natural Beaded Row Hair Extensions to add body and a little more length. She used Bohyme extension hair, colors 27 and 27/30.

STEP SIX: The style was finished with a 1 inch curling iron.

 Products used: TIGI Hair Reborn Resurgence Shampoo and Conditioner, S Factor Smoothing Lusterizer, Catwalk Sleek Mystique Haute Iron Spray, and Catwalk Session Series Finishing Spray.

The blonde Vegas pop star traded in her signature golden locks for brunette tresses about two weeks ago, and as of this past weekend, brunette is out and auburn is in.

2014 Top Men’s Trends

2014 Men's Trends

Slicked back hair with shaved sides and an undercut back has dominated the runways and magazines since last year. The trend is still going strong, especially for men with wavy, curly, and thick hair that benefit from significant pruning. This clean cut yet edgy look isn’t going anywhere but has constant variations depending on personal style. This style will sit through at least the first quarter of 2014.

TREND ALERT: Hair Cut Party

Image

Taylor Swift made a big deal about her new hair cut, and people noticed! Hair cut parties are already being requested at salons just one day after Swift’s big ‘do to-do.

Jump on board by following quick tips to host a successful haircut party like T-Swift’s, including tips from George the salon in Chicago:

  1. Make a big change. No one wants to go to a public showing of someone having his or her bangs trimmed. Swift chopped off her gold locks for a dramatic new look (that kind of looks like Karlie Kloss; somebody had to say it). “Sometimes big changes are difficult for us, and the support of your friends and family makes it easier to go through a drastic cut,” says George Gonzalez, owner of George the salon.
  2. Give back. Gonzalez suggests connecting with a local charity and donating your hair.
  3. Location, location, location. Create a night out at the salon or travel off-site for special occasions.
  4. Make it fun! Obviously, not everyone is Taylor Swift, so most haircut parties probably won’t occur after a concert in London. That doesn’t mean parties can’t feature music (Taylor Swift if you’re feeling particularly inspired), refreshments and lots of pics on social media for encouragement and style suggestions.
  5. Get a good crowd. Everyone was very enthusiastic at Swift’s party, and we get it: She’s Taylor Swift. But hair cut parties for less-famous individuals can be equally exciting with a decent amount of people who are looking forward to a good reveal. Plus, says Gonzalez, friends can give the extra push a client needs to go through with a big change.
