Wedding Day Beauty - Picture Perfect Hair at Von Anthony Salon, Frisco

Melissa White, Bridal Expert at Von Anthony Salon, shares these bridal hair trends and tips for spring and summer, 2010.

• Soft, romantic curls and waves are hot.

• There should be a soft, flowing movement to the hair.

• Sparkled accessories for the hair such as headbands, barrettes and jeweled bobby pins are popular. These are often sold at the bridal stores.

• At least 6 weeks prior to the wedding, visit your stylist to determine if you need color, a trim or a treatment and to experiment with different hair styles. Bring a camera. If you have them, bring photos of styles you do and don't like.

• On the day of the wedding, unless you have oily hair, don't wash your hair. Hair that is "a day dirty," is preferred. Also remember to bring the photos of the hair style you choose during your trial run.

• Keep just a couple of basic emergency supplies on hand after you leave the salon: a couple of bobby pins and some hair spray. However, Melissa shares that most of her brides end up wearing their same hair style on the plane the next day for the for the honeymoon. Once it's up, it's up!

Von Anthony Salon has a wonderful "lounge area" if brides would like to have a relaxing spa experience on the day of their wedding. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and drinks to the salon and hang out while everyone gets ready for the big day.

Amy's Tips: The Shag As Inspired By the New Joan Jett Movie, The Runaways

Any Joan Jett Fans out there?

"Nobody out there is rocking the modern shag better than Kristen Stewart. She definitely made waves when she debuted it last summer, chopping her longer hair into a dark, textured cut perfect for her role as rocker Joan Jett in the movie, The Runaways, which opens April 9."

Amy Kott-Hovland says the Shag cut is one of her favorite looks, anyone can wear it.

It is great on all face shapes and is not just for rock stars.

The shag can look airy and flirty.

The shape can look sleek or have a lot of volume and movement.

Great for most textures of hair especially straight to wavy.

Ready for an airy and flirty shag? Call Von Anthony Salon at 972-731-7600.

Prom Hair Tips
- Select a Prom hair style that works on your hair - not on a friend's hair or on a model's hair or on your favorite movie star. Whatever hair style you pick make sure it frames your face! " Select a backup hair style - just in case the first one doesn't work out you have a Plan B.

- Prom hair up dos work better on slightly dirty hair, so suds your tresses the day before. Clean hair is harder to work on. Hair washed the day before is easier to manage.

- Wear a button up shirt while getting your prom hair style done at a salon or home. You don't want to mess up those tresses taking off a t-shirt.

- Take prom pictures early in the night. You want your prom hair style looking absolutely flawless in the memories of Prom that last forever.

- Don't experiment on the big night with color and new style or length. It's not the time to test your locks or a new look!

- Be a real hair genius: Take spray, pins, bobby pins, mouse, gel, clips with you in your survival kit for fast fix ups.

Meet Ashley Berry, Hair Stylist at Von Anthony Salon

Responsibilities at Von Anthony Salon?
I, along with my peers, feel responsible for every client that walks through the door. Each and every employee works together to make the client feel comfortable and welcome. We also work together to maintain the appearance of the salon to give a professional and outstanding environment for everyone.

Why did you get into the beauty industry?

I wanted to get into an industry that is ever changing, exciting, and where my skills would be an attribute to myself and others. There is nothing more gratifying than helping someone feel better about themselves. Ever since high school, I have done all my friends hair and makeup for homecomings, proms, etc. Those experiences opened the door to what I think is one of the best and most rewarding professions.

How do you stay innovative and up-to-date in your industry?

First of all, there is always room for growth in this industry. That being said, going to educational classes, going to local or even out of state hair shows, and even discussing different ideas with my fellow co-workers expands my growth as a stylist. Not only that, but I feel like inspiration surrounds me!

Favorite hair care tip?
If I had to pick one, I think it would be to stay away from using heated tools excessively. And if you choose to use them daily, it's crucial to use heat protective products.

Favorite celebrity hair?

Jennifer Aniston!! I love the warm and cool toned blonde effect that really compliments her sleek/sexy hair.

Worst celeb hair?
Amy Winehouse. I just don't get the beehive thing!?

Who is your favorite beauty icon?
Audrey Hepburn. What's not to love about her glamorous yet simple and sheek look...

What do you like to do in your free time?
I like to hang out with my friends, watch movies, read self-help books, cook, and do anything outdoors.

Best advice ever received.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you. ~Matthew 7:7

Not a difficult concept. You can't just sit around silently waiting for something great to happen.

Where did you grow up?
Plano, TX

What book is currently on your nightstand?
Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I read it years ago but the movie is coming out this summer so wanted to refresh my memory.

Vegetable you won't touch.

Cauliflower...enough said

Favorite home cooked meal.
Thanksgiving Day! You get all the good stuff..haha!

What playing on your Ipod right now?
Lady Gaga. Her music is so fun and upbeat.

What is your favorite vacation spot?
The Virgin Islands!! I've only traveled to South American destinations, but hands down the scenery and culture there were the most memorable.

What is your favorite item in your house?
My couch because this is where I get to wind down from a long day, have a glass of wine, and get to cuddle up with my amazing boyfriend:)

Favorite Starbucks drink?

Non-fat Caramel Macchiato...Mmmmm

What do you want to say to your future clients?
I will go above and beyond to make you feel beautiful and confident about your hair. Your individuality is important to me and I want to express that through your hairstyle.
