Halloween hairstyles: Our top picks

Halloween presents us all with an excuse to play dress up. If spooky monsters aren’t your style, take the opportunity to dive into your favorite fantasy characters. Here are our top picks if you want a look that lets your hair take center stage:

Space Person

Space buns are a popular style regardless of whether it is a special occasion or an ordinary day. The look can be created with a half-up, half-down style, or fully up as with pigtails. Likewise, they can be messy buns or ones that are neat and polished. To spruce up the look for Halloween, add a fun space themed headband or spritz the buns with a silver-colored temporary dye spray. 

Nature Fairy

If you’re looking for a fun Halloween costume that isn’t too over the top, consider a nature fairy. This look focuses on incorporating the beauty of nature while also summoning your inner goddess. Simply adorn a simplistic, earthy colored dress with a pair of wings for the outfit. For the hairstyle, rock your natural texture and add in a few sprigs of baby’s breath or your favorite flowers. Hair in need of some TLC to pull this look off? Visit the best Davie hair salon for rejuvenating hair treatments.

Horns

Horns are a crucial part of many Halloween costumes, from devilish divas to Disney villains. If you are looking for a way to showcase your locks while incorporating horns, look no further than two simple buns. Part the hair evenly down the center as you would if making two pigtails. Secure the pigtails and then proceed to wrap the hair around the elastic until you have sculpted “horns”. Pin the hair in place with bobbi pins and then spritz with your favorite hairspray.

Mermaid Waves

Mermaids are one of the most popular mythical creatures. Known for being beautiful and mysterious, a mermaid costume is a solid choice for Halloween. Whether you opt for a Disney interpretation or a more realistic rendition, you can’t go wrong with a sequin-adorned skirt. To complete the look, add a crown of mermaid waves. While wavy locks may seem time-consuming, they can be created by simply braiding your hair the night before you plan to wear your mermaid costume. For an extra special touch, add a touch of seafoam green temporary hair color. 

Unicorn Queen

Another popular Halloween look for those who prefer a cuter twist is a unicorn themed costume. We recommend a sassy unicorn queen style. You can create a “horn” by securing a centered ponytail and then sculpting it into a horn or you can incorporate a series of pastel colors into a long, wavy style. For the clothing, you can slip into a rainbow, pastel-colored dress or you can go with a more literal interpretation.

5 Hairstyles to Create a More Youthful Look

While aging is a natural part of life that many are able to embrace, others are desperate to keep a more youthful appearance. If you’ve tried every eye cream and serum (and everything short of locating the fountain of youth) to disguise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles to no avail, it might be time to try a new hairstyle. Although a fresh haircut won’t replace anti-aging creams for your skin, the right hairstyle can make you look decades younger. Explore the top hairstyles for a more youthful look at the best Davie hair salon:

1. Sharp Bobs

Long locks may seem like the key to holding on to your youth, but the truth is, long hair forces the eyes downwards. This means that eyes may wander to fine lines around the mouth or other imperfections. A sharp bob that falls at the chin keeps the focus upwards and gives the illusion of your features being “lifted”. 

2. Choppy Layers

Unfortunately, one of the side effects of aging is thinning hair. While you may feel tempted to take drastic measures to cover thinning areas, the solution may be as simple as a new haircut. Inevitably, some styles show thinning areas more prominently than others. If you’ve been rocking the same straight, long style for years, adding in some texture with choppy layers can make your hair look immensely fuller. As an added bonus, choppy layers can be added to nearly any hair style and when these layers frame the face, they can soften the cheekbones and give a more youthful look.

3. Inverted Lob

A “lob” is simply a term that refers to a long bob. Lobs are typically less angular than sharp bobs and they allow you to hold onto more length. One of the best styles for maintaining a modern, youthful look is an inverted lob. Here, the hair in the front is longer than the hair in the back. This creates the illusion of longer locks in the front but gives the flattering volume of a shorter style in the rear. It is easy to maintain without making a drastic change and is flattering on nearly all face shapes.  

4. Long Pixie

If the thought of a barely there pixie cut seems a bit too bold, consider adapting the style to a longer length. This makes for a manageable, wash-and-go style while also adding volume. This haircut also pairs well with side swept bangs and draws attention to your eyes and your cheekbones. 

5. Modern Shag

The traditional shaggy hairstyle of the 70s is back and it has been given a modern twist. Today’s shag incorporates wispy bangs and face framing layers without being over the top. Typically, it falls slightly below the shoulders and brings focus to the eyes and cheekbones.

Overnight Hairstyles for Busy Back To School Days

After a long summer break filled with late nights and vacations, it can be difficult to adjust to an early morning schedule. This is especially true if you spent the last year attending remote classes that required little more than changing out of your pajamas. If you’re looking for simple hairstyles that will leave your hair looking fabulous without extending your morning routine, consider overnight hairstyles for busy back to school days.

Flawless Curls

Whether you have natural curls or stick straight hair, you can easily achieve flawless curls overnight. The biggest benefit of this style is that it doesn’t require the use of any harsh heating tools. To pull it off, begin by washing and conditioning your hair as normal. Allow your hair to air dry until it is slightly damp and then spritz with a spray gel. From there, brush your hair out and then create two small ponytails in the front of your hair and two in the back. Wrap the lengths of the ponytails around the base and pin them in place. Remove them in the morning and finger comb your locks until they are blended together. Spray with a light hold hairspray and viola! You will have voluminous curls that last all day with little effort. 

Mermaid Waves

Much like overnight curls, overnight mermaid waves do not require the use heating tools and can spare you from excessive styling time in the morning. To get long lasting waves, second day hair works best. Spritz your hair with a light hold gel spray and then braid into sections. Several small braids will create tight waves while a few large ones will create loose ones. Take out the braids in the morning and fluff the hair with your fingers for perfect mermaid waves in minutes.

Plopping for Natural Curls

Those who have natural curls know all too well that bedhead is the real enemy. Frizz and tangles can make it impossible to have a good hair day without washing and time-consuming primping in the morning. Those who have natural curls; however, can ensure their locks are low maintenance in the morning with a technique known as plopping. This requires placing your hair in the center of an old t-shirt and then using the sleeves to tie it around your head. Sleep with the t-shirt in place overnight and wake up to perfectly scrunched curls. 

Added Volume and Texture 

If you’re not looking for a drastic change to your everyday look, consider adding a little volume and texture. This style gives your look an extra “oomph” without needing to use a hair straightener or blow dryer in the morning. To get the look, work a little of your favorite styling products through your hair. Brush your hair to ensure it is free from knots or tangles and then pull it up into a loose bun before bed. When you remove the bun in the morning, you will be greeted with volume and texture with no effort.

3 Shocking Ways the Pandemic is Affecting Your Appearance

While the world recovers from the global pandemic, many are noting strange side effects. Dilemmas like “covid nails”, rashes and hair loss rank at the top of the list. Although these phenomenons are not uncommon after recovering from a serious illness, the problems are also affecting those who believe they never came into contact with the virus. Not surprisingly, this may be due to the stress experienced as a result of job loss, child care dilemmas and other stressful factors. Discover the shocking ways the pandemic may still be affecting your appearance:

Hair Loss

While hair loss in itself is a natural process of the hair life cycle, those who are losing much more than usual find it alarming. Those who have recovered from Covid-19 are reporting that they are experiencing rapid hair loss months after the initial infection took place, however it isn’t limited to those who were infected. The concept known as telogen effluvium is responsible for the hair loss in either scenario. This is because telogen effluvium is essentially hair loss due to stress. This stress can be physical, such as in those who were battling Covid-19 or mental, for those who found the situation particularly stressful. Fortunately, as the world (and your life) regains a sense of normalcy, the problem will resolve on its own without treatment.

If your hair loss is significant and you are looking for a way to hide it, consider hair extensions at the best Davie hair salon. A new haircut or a different color can also make the hair loss less noticeable. 

Damaged Nails

Throughout the pandemic, we were advised to increase hand washing and sanitizing efforts. For many, this has led to dry, cracked skin on the hands and damaged nails. While you should still continue cleansing your hands as often as possible, switching to a gentler formula enhanced with moisturizers can help. To further combat dry hands, use a hand cream regularly and use nail oil directly on your nails. 

Under Eye Bags

Whether you were unable to work, worked from home or had to act as a teacher to children during closures, many of us suffered quite a few sleepless nights. This high level of stress paired with less sleep can lead to serious under eye bags that you may not have experienced before. If you’re looking for a way to lessen their appearance without buying a pricey eye cream, consider using cold compresses, drying more water and eating iron rich foods. Increasing your amount and quality of sleep is most effective, however, if possible.

How to Choose a Flattering Cut Based on Your Face Shape

Have you ever taken the leap and gotten a trendy haircut only to discover the look is not as flattering as you imagined it would be? This is a common problem, especially in today’s social media savvy world. Trending styles dominate newsfeeds and suddenly, everyone wants the same style despite the fact that each person has a different look. Naturally, some cuts will look fabulous on some and lackluster on others. So, how do you know if the cut you have in mind is right for you?

When it comes to honing in on the perfect haircut, the most critical detail lies in the shape of your face:

Round

A person with a round face usually has full, rounded cheeks and a face that is similar in length and width. The ideal haircut will offer a slimming effect that balances out the fullness of the cheeks and adds length to the face. The best way to achieve this is with a full, voluminous haircut at the best Davie hair salon. If you prefer to go short, be sure to choose a style that adds volume to the crown of the head and aim for chin-length pieces in front of the face. For longer locks, consider a mid-length lob or a cut that features a lot of choppy layers. Some of the most popular looks for round faces include:

  • Asymmetrical Bobs
  • Mid-length Lobs
  • Side Fringes
  • The Modern “Shag”

Be sure to avoid: soft, wispy bangs.

Heart

Heart shaped faces are similar to that of round faces, but true heart shapes feature more prominent foreheads and a narrower jawline. The biggest focus of a flattering haircut for a heart shaped face lies in minimizing the focus on the forehead and adding length and fullness to the chin instead. This usually consists of adding in wispy bangs or choosing a mid-length style that creates the illusion of a less narrow chin and jawline. Ask your best Davie hair salon stylists for one of these looks:

  • Wispy Bangs
  • Mid-Length Lobs
  • Layered Bobs
  • Face Framing Layers

Be sure to avoid: blunt bangs.

Square

A person with a square face shape will have a strong jawline and a squared chin. The best looks for this face shape will hone in on softening these bold features. It is best to avoid ultra-short cuts like pixie cuts and aim for a length that extends beyond the chin. Likewise, haircuts should be soft instead of angular with textured layers and side parts. Consider asking your Davie hair salon stylist for:

  • Long Bobs
  • Shoulder Length with Layers
  • Side Parts or Side Bangs
  • Modern Shag

Be sure to avoid: blunt bobs.

Oval

Those with oval face shapes have the most symmetrical look. To be classified as an oval shape, the face is longer than it is wide, the jawline is soft and the widest area is the cheeks. Because of this, nearly every style is flattering. In this instance, rely on your own personal preference whether it is long with layers, mid-length with blunt bangs or a short tousled pixie.

Trending Spring Hair Colors

After a harsh winter, spring arrives and greets us with plenty of sunshine, blooming flowers, and chirping birds. This renewal in the weather often prompts us to make a series of changes, be it spring cleaning or a fresh new hair color. While we can’t organize that garage you’ve been avoiding, we can recommend some of the trendiest spring hair colors to embrace the season of rebirth:

1.Honey Blonde

This rich blonde hue isn’t as dramatic as the icy blondes that are popular in the summer making it suitable for varying complexions. It adds warmth to your look and can be customized to fit your preferences for a light or dark blonde. 

2. Balayage with Pastels

While balayage itself refers to a technique for painting dye on the hair, it typically goes hand in hand with a light brown or blonde color. This spring; however, fashionistas around the globe are pairing the technique with pastel hues. This is a fun look and can be done with any pastel color, from pinks and purples to blues and greens. 

3. Chunky Highlights

If the mere mention of chunky highlights brings up memories of the early 2000’s era, relax! Today’s chunky highlights are nothing at all like the skunk-like stripes of the past. Instead, these thick highlights are well blended which aids in reducing the contrast between the highlights and your base color. This look adds dimension and warmth to your complexion without making a major change.

4. Nude Hues

The nude hair color trend isn’t an aim to mimic the color of your skin tone. Instead, it aims to bring back the natural blonde shade you may have sported as a child before it was ever dyed or before it darkened to brown. While most trendy blonde colors fall on the warm or cool spectrum, this one is totally in-between: a neutral blonde. The most intriguing aspect of the neutral hue is that is truly is flattering on everyone.

5.  Embracing Grays

Amidst the global pandemic and salon shutdowns last year, many women found themselves facing their worst fear: exposed grays. Surprisingly, it turned out to be a freeing experience for a lot of those who once hid them at all costs. This season, expect to see those grays growing out and on display as women embrace their natural colors.

6. Face Framing Highlights

One of the trendiest looks of the season is face framing highlights. These highlights make use of the balayage technique to add two vibrant strands of color around the face. This look usually pairs with more subtle balayage throughout the rest of the hair and a darker base color.

7. Strawberry Blonde

The subtle blend of blonde and red make strawberry blonde a go-to shade for spring. This year, the color is more popular than ever and it is a color that can easily carry over from season to season.

Valentine’s Day: Socially Distanced Date Night Ideas & Hairstyle Inspiration

Amid a global pandemic, holiday celebrations as we know them have been canceled from one season to the next. As Valentine’s Day quickly approaches, the occasion that is typically celebrated with fine dining and romantic outings does not have to meet the same fate. Whether you plan to spend the most romantic day of the year with your partner or with your favorite canine, there are plenty of ways to stay safe (and sport a fabulous hairstyle) while celebrating:

1. Pair a Chignon with an Outdoor Picnic

Although many restaurants near our hair salon in Davie are still restricting in-house dining, a plethora of them are offering meals to go for Valentine’s Day. If you’d prefer not to cook, this is also a great way to support a local business. From there, you can create a romantic picnic scene under the stars in your favorite park or even in your own backyard. Pair this date with a classic chignon for an unforgettable (and socially distant) date night.

2. “Curl” Up on The Couch with a Movie

If you’ve been rocking the same messy bun around the house, letting your hair down and adding a few curls can set the tone for your Valentine’s Day celebration. For an easy curly look, divide your hair into four sections and then twist each section and secure it in place before bed. When you wake up, you will be greeted with perfect, luscious curls that will leave you looking like a movie star. Turn on a movie and relish a chance to kick back and take it all in—whether you are enjoying your canine’s company or spending time with a loved one.

3. Go for a Drive in Braids

Some of the best drives are those that don’t have a planned destination or a time limit. Take a romantic ride and explore some of the beautiful sights near our top Davie hair salon or grab your favorite drive-through menu items from each restaurant. Weather permitting, you can also roll the windows down and enjoy a cool evening breeze while listening to your favorite songs. With a messy French braid, you can spice up your style without having to worry about windblown tangles as you celebrate Valentine’s Day.

4. Blow-Out of Town

Even with social distancing measures in effect, you can still plan a romantic Valentine’s Day weekend getaway. This presents a perfect reason to rent a cozy cabin in a secluded area where you can spend the weekend in front of a raging fire, soaking in a hot tub or exploring nature. Before heading out, be sure to give yourself a thorough blow-out to ensure good hair days on your mini vacation.

Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas for Hair Lovers

While cards, flowers, and chocolates are the go-to gifts for Valentine’s Day, a personalized gift can be even more meaningful. Whether you are shopping for a friend, a romantic partner, or treating yourself, health and beauty products are always a useful and thoughtful gesture. Consider these 5 gift ideas for hair lovers: 

Hair Brush Set

One of the most critical tools for healthy, beautiful hair is one that is frequently overlooked by those wanting to improve their hair: the hair brush. All too often people use the same hair brush for far too long or choose the first one they see at a local department store. Unfortunately, many of these brushes are inexpensive ones that are manufactured using pointy nylon or plastic bristles. These bristles are particularly harsh on the hair and can lead to severe breakage, especially if they are used when the hair is wet. For the perfect Valentine’s Day gift, consider giving a boar bristle brush set that will lessen the chance of breakage and bring out the shine in your loved ones locks.

Hair Treatment Kit

Here in Davie, FL hair treatments are one of our most popular services. This is because they can quickly transform lackluster locks and damaged strands into a silky, shiny crown. To embrace this notion without the trip to the salon, consider giving a professional quality hair treatment kit. While there are endless options to choose from, we recommend one with agave, keratin or moroccan oil for flawless results. 

Hair Accessories

In the last few years, hair accessories have been all the rage on runways across the globe. From elegant pins to sporty headbands, these accessories aren’t as commonly thought of as belts or scarves. If the hair enthusiast/fashionista in your life likes to switch up their style and accessorize, consider gifting meaningful hair accessories. Decorative hair combs or jeweled pins are highly gift-able and not as commonplace for Valentine’s Day as necklaces and bracelets are. 

Styling Tools

Has your Valentine been using the same blow-dryer, straightener or curling iron for years without fail? With all of the advances made in the designs of these products, they probably don’t know what they are missing by using an outdated styling tool. Surprise them with a professional grade blow-dryer that adds shine or a straightener that doubles as a curling iron.

A Gift Certificate

While gift certificates are often reserved for occasions when the giver is unsure of exactly what to give, they shouldn’t be! Gift certificates give recipients the opportunity to get precisely what they want. For a hair enthusiast, consider a gift card to the best hair salon in Davie. With this card, your loved one can opt for anything from a haircut or highlights to a full color or a hair treatment in Davie. If your loved one isn’t local to our top hair salon in South Florida, a gift card to a beauty supply store will also be well received. 

Want to purchase a gift card for your Valentine before the big day arrives? Call us at (954) 543 0758 or stop by the best Davie hair salon today.

The tree is lit, the stockings are hung, and you’ve carefully selected thoughtful gifts for everyone on your list—or so you thought. It happens to the best of us, days (or even hours) before the big gift exchange takes place, you realize you have forgotten someone. Fortunately, if you’ve happened to overlook the beauty enthusiast in your life, there are plenty of last-minute gift ideas that will look as if they were planned months in advance:

2. DIY Gel Nail Kit

Even the most devout salon goer encounters times when they are too busy for a mani/pedi appointment. While a quick layer of nail polish can spare them from staring at chipped nails for a few days, a longer lasting solution makes the perfect gift. A DIY gel nail kit will allow them to have long lasting color in-between mani/pedi appointments. They are sold at most pharmacies and typically include a UV light as well as a few gel polishes.  

3. Silk Pillowcases

Silk pillowcases are indulgent and necessary for beauty enthusiasts. Not only do they feel fantastic, but they also aid in keeping a clear complexion and decreasing frizzy hair. You can find sets in any local beauty supply or home goods store in a variety of colors and styles.

4. Natural Boar Bristle Brush Set

Those who want strong, healthy hair understand that the process starts with the basics. While a healthy diet and staying hydrated are crucial, the tools used for hair care are also important in achieving this feat. While most people settle for any ordinary brush, beauty enthusiasts known that plastic bristles are harsh on the hair and can lead to breakage. This makes a natural boar bristle brush set perfect and practical gift for anyone who is serious about their locks.

5 Halloween Costumes That Are Made by The Hair

The word “costume” is synonymous with Halloween. Whether you opt to take a walk on the dark side or embrace your inner diva, there is a lot that goes into pulling off either style. From the costume itself down to the hair, every aspect further enhances the mystique of the holiday. For those who are searching for a look that showcases their luscious locks, look no further than these costumes that are made by the hair:

1. Space Woman

Galaxy themes have been a fan favorite for the last several years. From makeup trends to clothing patterns, this ethereal style can be translated in endless ways for Halloween. One of the most popular options is with a space woman costume. Although this look is versatile, metallic hues are most prominent when it comes to clothing choice. As for hair, however, there is no better option than classic space buns. To pull your look together, part your hair down the middle and create two high ponytails on each side. Secure them in place with elastics and then wrap the length of the hair around the elastic and hold in place with bobbi pins. This Halloween hair style in Davie is fun and low maintenance.

2. Medusa

A notable figure from Greek mythology, Medusa is the ultimate persona to take on if you prefer to embrace the spookiness of the season. With live, venomous snakes taking the place of Medusa’s locks, there is no doubt that this costume places the most emphasis on the wearer’s hairstyle. Fortunately, to embody this look you don’t have to show up to your next Halloween party with a crew of live snakes atop of your head. Instead, part your hair into tiny sections all over your head and then create small braids. You can make the braids twist and stand up like snakes by wrapping the braids around thin wire or by using an extremely generous amount of pomade or extreme hold hair gel. To take the look a step further, consider spritzing some temporary green hair color over the braids once you finish.

3. Rosie the Riveter

A cultural icon for women during World War II, Rosie the Riveter continues to be a beloved figure and a staple of the feminist movement. Her signature style, complete with a banada and a 40’s style updo, is instantly recognizable and relatively easy to pull off. Start your Rosie inspired look by parting the front section of your hair into a deep “U” shape and pulling this section forward. Put the remaining length of your hair into a low ponytail. Return to the front section and create around 5 curls with a curling iron. Backcomb the hair directly behind this section to create volume and then gently brush out the curls to create one large curled section. Pin the curl in place and then twist the ponytail in the back upwards and pin in place. Lastly, add your red bandana and secure the look in place using a combination of bobbi pins and hairspray.  

4. The Lioness

No look is quite as fierce as king or queen of the jungle. This lion mane inspired hairdo requires excessive volume, which can be achieved using a combination of curls, teasing and a strong hold hairspray. You can also take it a step further and create “ears” by adding small buns to the top of the head.

5. Devil

Another top costume for Halloween is a twist on a traditional devil. While many opt for headbands or headpieces to create the iconic devil horns associated with the look, it can be pulled off just as easily with the hair. To make it happen, part the front of the hair into two equal sections and then secure them in place with elastic hair ties. Then carefully twist the length of the hair around the hair tie until it forms the shape of “horns”. Pin the hair in place with bobbi pins and spray with hair spray to keep them in place all evening.
