Spring 2011 Hair Trends

There is no right or wrong way right now; it is about knowing who you are and what looks best on you.

Short strong feminine shapes are practical and edgy. This spring will bring colors ranging from cool brunettes with warm golden tones mixed throughout as well as bright reds. Long hair is still everywhere and being feminine is okay. Sexy is smart. We at Von Anthony Salon support these looks for women.

What image do you want to project? Edgy, smart, conservative, bold, sexy, you name it. A stylist consultation at Von Anthony Salon can help you determine what would work best for you and we can help you learn how to wear it well.


Amy's Tips: How To Make Your Hair Color Last

Von Anthony Salon is the first in the area to debute INOA, the L'Oreal Professional Hair Color Line. It is ammonia free and it is not aggressive on the hair. It does not blow open the cuticle layer like traditional hair color. That helps with the unwanted warm tones.

Hair color is designed to last 4-6weeks. Depending on how often you shampoo, temperature of water (not too hot) and UV protectants on hot days will make a difference. If you use the right shampoo like Croma Sesitive from Kerastase the first 3xs you shampoo it extends the life of your color. Then you switch back and forth with your shampoo.

Also with blondes, if you are always turning brassy 2 weeks after your hair is colored, even though you use all the right products you may need a water filtration system or softener. Iron in your water does a number on your hair (not to mention your toilet too!)

Heat and wind is our enemy! That's our blow dryer so always use a product like Kerastase Nectar Thermique to protect hair and keep it properly moisturized. Imagine if you never put lotion on your skin it would feel awful. Since hair is dead it doesn't have the ability to heal it's self so keep it moisturized with the right product for your hair type!

"The younger sister to Dakota, 12-year-old Elle Fanning was nominated for a Critics’ Choice Award for her role in Sofia Coppola’s Somewhere. We love her sweet braid and glossy lip, which is perfectly appropriate for her age."

"Justin Bieber, 16, needs no introduction. We don’t want to know whether you like his music—we want to know, do you like his hair? His trademark “swoop” has lately evolved into something a bit more relaxed and mature looking."

"Even though she’s an Oscar nominee for Best Supporting Actress for her role in True Grit, Hailee Steinfeld is down-to-earth in an easy pony and low-key makeup. At 14, her naturally beautiful skin doesn’t need much help to look this good."

"Past Academy Award nominee Abigail Breslin looks sophisticated way beyond her 14 years. Her purple eye makeup and fun sequined top are balanced out by a neutral lip and tweed blazer—making the finished effect a look we love."
