The Hair Happening this Fall.

People are always asking what is the most popular style for the season. Often times, there are seasonal trends, but a lot of those times they are so specific that it leaves a lot people out. Not everyone wants to be a risk taker to keep up with the most current of trends.

This season, however, I feel is a bit different. There is a little of everything for EVERYONE!! 

Color seems to be continuing down the route of natural, beeachy, rooty, grown out, soft, dimensional and positively effortless.

In laymen's terms, if you have highlights- let them grow out some and maybe even smudge your root out a little. If you have all over color- consider adding some some kissed pieces around your face and through your ends. I promise you, you can't go wrong. 

I'm, also, still seeing tons of pastels. But that is for those of you that are a bit more ambitious and adventurous with your hues. 

Now for cuts.... middle length is still the "it length" of the season. It probably started some time late Spring and is still going strong.

Just past the shoulders, collar bone and resting just at the top or your breast seems to be the length of perfection. Another thing, I am noticing, that is a bit new, is the heaviness and bluntness of these cuts. They still continue to have texture and lots of movement without having tons of layers. Perfect for thick hairs and fine hairs alike.

This style on Brianna is the epitome of this current trend.


And if you are still wanting something shorter... disconnected pixies and short bobs are still showing up everywhere. Just remember to keep the texture.

If you ever have any questions, or wonder if any of these styles are right for you.... call the salon and set up a consultation. I'd be happy to talk with you. 772-299-1570

Highlights by way of Foiling

I thought I would share this since I am always posting about hair painting. I decided to take a few pic of the foils I put in my client's hair (who is actually my lovely mom). She is natural with barely 50% grey. I foil her with two blondes (lightener and a high lift) and I, also, add a mid light in there. This is one of my "standard" foiling patterns, but not my only one. There are several other styles I utilize, depending on the effect I am going for.

I've posted a video as well.
One thing I want you to notice in the video is how close the foil is to the scalp. Not just on top, but more importantly on the underneath side. Too me, this determines how close the product really is.

***and please ignore my horrid morning voice. It took everything for me to do this voice over.*** :)

There are so many other factors in making foils look beautiful than just how close they are to the scalp. Color choice, placement, application... you name it. I just find that this is one of things clients find to be pretty important. 

Just thought I would share. And when I do foil highlights on a client with longer hair, with a clearer part, I will be sure to post that, too. 

Summer Love.....

I recently added a few new sections to the website. Under Portfolio, I have a Gallery section where you can actually pin individual photos to your Pinterest boards. 

I've, also, added three more sections (also under portfolio) for making look throughs easier.


Long Hair

Color and Hair Painting

As soon as I take a few more short hair photos, I will add that section, too. 

And the best part, if it's something you like, I've done it. That makes everything a million times easier for recreating. 

And I try to take photos of clients before they leave. If times allows for it, and if I feel like I am not putting my guest out. Not everyone feels photogenic all the time. I respect that.

...bbbbuuuutttttttt, sometimes the best photos are selfies. If you have your hair all styled up, and tend to take selfies, feel free to tag me. That's how I got this little gem!!!!! This is the lovely Meg.

Anytime. I love to post those, too. They tend to have a much nicer lived in feel that I can't create in the salon.   

If you are on instagram, just tag me with @slimkins. You can also follow me here

I, also, post a lot of photos on my facebook page for hair. Which you can find here

With summer in full swing, I'm starting to do a few more models. If you are up for something new, and are pretty open, feel free to send me a message.
