As a tribute to 50 Shades of Grey movie we thought why not share with you 5 shades of red – hairstyles that is! Here are the Style Bars favorite 5 ways to rock the red hair!

Deep red: Give your look some real dimension by going with a deep sultry red. This color looks great on pale skin tones.

Fire engine: Afraid to go the bright red you’ve always dreamed about? Add a blonde ombré or some golden highlights to ease yourself into the color change. We love this look with dark rimmed glasses.

Copper: This is a trend for 2015. It’s a gorgeous tonal color that looks great with a bob or a lob.

Plum cherry red: This is one of our favorites – and it’s great on darker skin tones. We love how this high pony really shows off the dimension of color in her hair.

Red ombré: Can’t pick that one color of red? Give yourself a trendy and delicate red head style with an ombré look. We love this pairing with loose curl to give the color that extra layer of dimension.

Walking into your local beauty store for a new hairbrush can be overwhelming. Round, square, oval, with so many shapes and sizes, how to know which brush is best for your hair? Fear no more, the experts at The Style Bar are here to demystify the process of choosing which brush is perfect for you and your hair.
Let’s break it down:

Paddle Brushes

temp-post-image

If you have medium to very long hair, this is a great choice for everyday use. The large paddle allows you to handle a lot of hair at once, so blow drying those long strands is a breeze. The bristles are soft but durable, so they comfortably detangle and hold up over time.

Vented Brushes

temp-post-image

For shorter, finer hair (especially for the men out there) the vented brush is for you. This brush speeds up drying time by allowing the air to flow fully through while adding volume. Unlike a round brush, this enhances your natural texture to give you a less polished look for those more casual days. Don’t be afraid to get right into your roots with this brush to lift and dry for a easy morning on the go.

Cushion Brush

temp-post-image

Very similar, but not to be confused with, the paddle brush. This brush is usually oval shaped and great for comfort when you really need to detangle from the root. By gently massaging the scalp, this brush distributes the natural oils from the follicle and keeps hair health at a maximum. Another great everyday brush for medium to long hair.

Round Brush

temp-post-image

Round brushes often range in so many different sizes which can add to the overwhelming feeling, but just remember – the shorter the hair, the smaller the brush. Smaller barrels allow you to have full control with the blow dryer close to the root which is crucial with short hair. Longer styles have the freedom to be natural at the root with the emphasis on styling the ends. Try out different sizes and find which is best for your length and style.
Still can’t choose which brush is right for you? Feel like you’re stuck in the middle of two? Stop in for a blowout, and see which brush our experts will choose for you to perfect the look you are going for. Make your appointment today! (203) 914-1180

It’s no argument that rose gold is an absolutely beautiful color. The timelessness of gold with hints of blushed pink upgrade this classic color into a shade that represents luxury and style. Countless pieces of jewelry and watches adapted the hue, and even Apple jumped on board with the color of their new iPhone. But, we never expected rose gold would look just as amazing as a hair color! Whether in ombre style, dynamic highlights, or just a full rose gold take over, we are loving this growing hair trend for anyone looking to bend the rules of having a “natural” hair color.
Our favorite styles:

Ashy

temp-post-image

Ever since Taylor Swift starting rocking her ashy shade of blonde, we all realized we don’t necessarily need shiny, satin-like color to look amazing. For those looking to brighten up their look in a gorgeously dull way, the ashy rose gold is for you!

Rose Gold Undertones

temp-post-image

We get it, it can be terrifying to part from your natural hair color, but that is no excuse to avoid getting creative with your hair! These lower rose gold undertones brighten up dark hair and serve as the perfect way to try something new without changing the majority of your hair color.

Full Coverage

temp-post-image

For the bold! We love a complete Rose Gold takeover for those brave enough to try the new trend.

Rose Gold Ombre

temp-post-image

We’re very used to seeing natural dark hair at the top of an ombre cascading into a light blonde shade, but this style is a tad different. This ombre slowly transitions a dark rose gold from the roots into a natural blonde at the ends for a gorgeous spin on a classic ombre look.

Hint of Rose

temp-post-image

This shade of rose gold is just a hint different than regular blonde yet completely adds a warm, soft touch. Think of it as just sweeping blush on your blonde locks for a brighter yet subtle change, perfect for fall.
You may buy rose gold jewelry or the new iPhone, but will you let your hair take on the gorgeous trend? Schedule your appointment today! (203) 914-1180. Don’t see your perfect shade of rose gold here? Check our Pinterest Board for more inspiration!

The Pixie haircut dates back all the way to the iconic, Twiggy, but the way it’s styled is constantly changing and following trends. The Pixie is so easy and low maintenance, but it can be a huge change for women who have had medium or longer length hair their entire lives. If you’re looking for a change, we say go for it.
Check out a few of our favorite different styles to try that still fall under The Pixie category:

Faux Hawk

temp-post-image

The faux hawk is not just for the guys out there. This edgy style is the perfect balance of masculine and feminine and only requires running your fingers through the top with your favorite product, and you’re out the door!

Shaggy Style

temp-post-image

The longer, shaggy style pixie is perfect for those who want to ease into the pixie, or just prefer to not go as short as the other styles. The texture and layers brings out lots of dimension and color, but can be a bit trickier to style to get the ideal messy look.

Shaved Side

temp-post-image

The shaved style is only for the ones brave enough to go for it! The drama of the shaved short side is evened out by the longer and flowy hair opposite of the part. This is one of the easiest pixies to style, just blowout one side! However, more trips for a trim to keep your look polished is necessary.

Layered with Side Bangs

temp-post-image

This style is perfect for women with thick hair who can up the volume in the back and keep a sleek side bang in the front. Light pastel highlights gave this look even more dimension, but can serve as one of the most classic styles with naturally colored hair as well.

Chic Messy Top

temp-post-image

The chic messy top look is so feminine and can be worn during a casual weekday or evening formal event. Though the sides are not shaved, they must be maintained short to show the intended difference of length from sides to top!

There are tons of pixie styles to rock, check out our Pinterest Board for more inspiration, and choose your favorite to pull up on your smartphone at The Style Bar and let us do our magic! Schedule your appointment today: 203.914.1180.

Looking back at your childhood photos, you may notice a repeat of the same hairstyles full of barrettes and french braids. These styles are a staple of our childhood because they were quick, cute and easy. So, why ditch them? A few tweaks to mature your look can cure your childhood nostalgia and allow you to rock those classic looks as an adult.

Barrettes

temp-post-image

Keeping those pesky baby hairs out of your face was an easy fix with a simple barrette as a child. Adding these to your hair now can add style with purpose. Go for a beachy look with barrettes themed from the sea, or a button style to sweep short hair away from your face.

French Braids

temp-post-image

French braids can take on a much more mature style by adding a touch of flare. Try dutch braids for a more detailed look, an underneath braid to hold your top bun tight, or the classic french braid but done loosely, for a relaxed boho look.

Bow

temp-post-image

For a special occasion, adding a bow to a child’s hair means it’s time to be fancy and formal! Though as adults, formal calls for a refined and a well polished look. Add bows into your casual weekday styles by incorporating a bandana, a simple bow with a half up style, or forget the accessory all together and actually turn your hair into a bow!

Pig Tails

temp-post-image

You may be thinking pigtails is a style that should remain in the childhood years, never to surface again as an adult. But these styles had us thinking we may just need to bring it back! Pairing the look with hats, headband accessories, and fishtails give pigtails a new name. We also love the “no part” style with clear elastics.

Next time you are feeling that childhood nostalgia, don’t be afraid to stick to the classic tried-and-true styles with a mature twist! Need more inspiration? Check out our Pinterest Board here!

Everyday, our clients come into our salon with a photo of a celebrity (Jennifer Aniston, you are literally a hair icon) saying, “I want this.” Woah, let’s back it up. In order for our stylists to know exactly what you want, it’s crucial break it down a bit more.

What is it exactly that you like about the photo you’ve brought in and want to achieve with your look? Take the image below for example – a client sees this and thinks, “Wow, she looks awesome and confident, I want to look like that!” A Style Bar stylists see this as, volume on the top, blonde highlights, brunette lowlights, textured waves, sweeping layers, and an uneven middle part.

As much as we all wish we had the time to get a fabulous blow out every single day, some days the usual morning routine needs to be cut short. Since washing your hair requires lots of time drying and styling, (plus you want to hold onto that awesome blow out for one more day), dry shampoo is without a doubt the best way to have you out the door in minutes looking well polished for your day ahead.

What is dry shampoo?

It is exactly what it sounds like, a dry substance that cleans your hair without the use of water. Dry shampoo works by absorbing oil from your scalp and hair, and making it look and feel freshly washed again. It almost sounds too good to be true!

Diy

temp-post-image

Since creating this product is an easy DIY, it’s worth a shot using ingredients you probably already have before splurging on expensive products to achieve a clean, oil free style.

For Blondes: Pour ½ cup of oatmeal into a blender and pulse a few times to get a powder consistency (don’t get caught with oatmeal chunks in your hair!). In a small mixing bowl, stir the oatmeal and 1 tbsp of cornstarch together and transfer into any container of your choice. Then with a small brush, dust the dry shampoo into your roots, blend with your fingers, and comb through.

For Brunettes: skip the oatmeal and sub with ½ cup of cocoa powder. The brown hue will blend better and has a nice refreshing scent. Apply with directions above.

So the next time you snooze your alarm a few too many times and have to cut your beauty regimen short, reach for your homemade dry shampoo for a quick solution. We will see you first thing tomorrow for your next blowout!
