SUMMER 2017 HAIR TRENDS

We looked to our favorite beauty professionals for the upcoming Summer 2017 trends, and some have us doing a double-take..

Peach TonesMakeup-1

Whether it be a peach lip stain or peach-toned blush, this color is making a debut this upcoming season. Believe it or not, peach compliments almost every skin tone, and gives you an effortless pop of color that doesn’t go unnoticed.

 

 

Grey & Gothic Lip

Let’ s seriously switch gears here.. grey or dark, gothic lips are transitioning from winter, to spring, and yes they are staying for summer. This may seem unfit for the season, but paired with a simplistic eye and cheek, the gothic lip proves its cool.

Micro BraidsTousled-Curly-Hairstyle-with-Small-Braid

When you think of ‘micro braids’ you may think cornrows, or 21st century feels. However, these braids can be very understated and serve as a form of texture to your hair. This look was seen on the runway amidst the models’ natural waves. You can also try this trend by adding them to your pony for dimension.

 

Half-up Bun

The half-up bun is here to stay! This is extremely popular this current spring season and is definitely going to be no different come summer. The more undone this look appears, the better. The half-up bun is an easy way to stay stylish during the summer heat.

The Wet Look

This ‘post swimming pool’ style can be pulled off by pulling the hair back in a low pony, or by scrunching your way to the ultimate beach waves. Use a dollop of mousse to achieve this effortless look. This may bring you back to your school days, but it can be done much sexier.

 

 

Super Straight

Pin straight hair is back! To those naturally-straight gals, this is a dream. No more fighting the curling iron or wands! To the textured folks, this is a scary thought. Super straight hair during the most humid time of the year?? Finding the right products is key to getting this Gigi Hadid inspired trend. Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Naturally Straight product is a great place to start!

No Makeup Look

This is what summer is all about! The no makeup look allows you to enjoy a lifestyle from the beach, to the bar without having to touchup in between. Just remember to keep your skin safe from the harmful rays with some sunscreen, apply some lip balm, and you are ready to take on the season! Who else feels so thankful for this ongoing seasonal trend?

These are just SOME of the trends hitting us in just a couple of months. Be sure to consult with your stylist about which products can help you achieve these summer looks!

 

 

 

 

Frangipani Celebrates EARTH MONTH 2017

What is Earth Month?0422_earth

April is Earth month, and gives us a reason to appreciate and raise awareness our precious and increasingly fragile planet. Earth Day was established 42 years ago – on April 22nd – and over the years this celebration has evolved from the day, to the week, and now to the month!

How does Aveda celebrate Earth Month?

“When you protect water, you protect what you love.” In essence, this is why Aveda celebrates Earth Month. It is Aveda’s mission during the month of April to raise funds for water projects in over 80 countries. Funds are also used to aid in the preservation of clean water, and to educate citizens about regional water issues.

How does Frangipani celebrate Earth Month?

Our focus during Earth Month is to raise funds for The St. John’s Riverkeeper.

The St. John’s Riverkeeper “defends, advocates, and activates others to protect and restore the St. Johns River.” Their efforts make sure our ‘River City’s’ waterways remain clean and healthy. Not only does the St. John’s Riverkeeper monitor pollution, ensure environmental laws and regulations are implemented and enforced, and patrol the river on a daily basis, but they also inform and engage members of the community in efforts to protect and restore the river’s health.

This year, YOU can enter Frangipani’s raffle to help us protect the St. John’s River!

Calling all curly haired clients!! We have the ultimate fix for all of you that are fighting the frizz, wrestling with styling tools and wasting countless dollars on styling products.

What is a Deva Cut?

The Deva Cutting technique “is a technique used by the Devachan Salon for cutting curly hair. Curly hair is cut in its natural form: dry, not wet. Each curl is individually shaped and the style is based on the individual.”

Each cut is a customized cut for each curl pattern, which requires strict and extensive training by every Deva Curl Stylist. The hair is cut dry, simply because the spring factor found in naturally curly hair changes and falls when it is cut dry.

[One of the benefits of a Deva Curl haircut is that they are built for a wash & go hairstyle]

“DevaCuts are dimensional and intricate and made for wash-and-gos.”

How does one style a Deva Cut?

devacurl-3-650x365

Karlie will educate her clients on how to style their new, bouncy, beautiful ringlets. She guides her guest on the cleansing and styling process as she works so that clients can go home and recreate this style themselves. Karlie will also recommend the perfect Deva Curl products to purchase and use at home.

Where can I purchase these products?

 

You can purchase all of your products while you are at your appointment at Frangipani!
