Welcome to Avant Garde’s blog. This tool will engage you, educate you, and most importantly inspire you. Our journey through the world of beauty will begin with a topic which would seem like a basic right but is much harder to achieve. We should have the right to express ourselves and be who we are. I’m happy to say that it’s becoming a trend. Fashion colors are being used as tools to creating works of art, and the canvases are just as bold and beautiful. When taking the dive into fashion colored hair, your making a statement and declaring your own independence. It has become it’s own world of mermaids (and mermans!): bright and vibrant or soft and elegant. There is no limit to what these hair artists will create; However, the process to get you there requires a knowledgeable and skilled stylist. This is what you will find at Avant Garde. Passion is what moves us forward and hair is our gateway to expression. The French word Avant Garde translates to ‘bringing the trend.’ We take pride in our word, and in our work. Hope you will join me again next week and see you soon at Avant Garde!

Bride important recommendation
Wash your hair the day before the wedding and do not blow dry your hair too straight to have a better stay for your big sunday.
The Hair trial is absolutely necessary. An up do is not an everyday hair style, in most of the case you need to try several styles to know which one will be yours. On your wedding day you are under stress and have a lot of last minute details to take care of, it is not a
good day to decide about your hair style or makeup style
When you come with a picture that you find on the internet or in a Bridal Magazine, always have a plan B to give us a chance to help you and offer you another option… (for example, model up dos look more defined on blond hair, her hair texture & hair abundance
etc may be different)

Witch hairstyle will be yours ?
The wedding dress is a very important step , and show the begining of your wedding`s organisation . The Beauty of the bride is not only the dress, the hairstyle and the Makeup are very important and can not be review at the last minute.The dress and the hairstyle must be coherent .Lets review togther the 2015 Hair tendancies , it will probably inspire you .
Last year the wedding trend was Boho and vintage , and we could see a lot of hair styles with braids , messy updos , Hair down with romantic waves .
But ,Up or down the hair needed to be in harmony with a dentelle Dress for the most, and a the headband as hair accessories.
The trend is different for each season , and it looks like that 2015 will have a retro tendancy , the hairstyle will have a 1920 look, with hair on the side organize in finger waves .
2015 will see strict updos , tied , elegant ,Grace Kelly style, or a poney tail perfectly in control to be in harmony with the dress.The style for the dress is very simple and nude .The dentelle headband and the flower crown should desapear for hair jewelry pieces, with pearl and gold tone. But we are talking only about tendancy , you need to find the style that match your taste and your personality .Avant-Garde salon and spa Miami is in the Beauty industry for 40 years , and we will be honored to be part of your big Day, and Coral Gables, Miracle Mile is the bride`s street !
Your Hair Salon in Miami is giving you a few tips to wake up with awesome hair !
Waking up to good hair without any effort on your part the night before is like accidentally getting the half off on current-season boots at Barney’s—rare, precious and best accepted without question. Waking up to great hair every day with only slightly more intention than none? Totally possible. Our hair stylists in Avant-Garde-Salon and spa share with you the overnight hairstyles to learn for the best results in the morning
To preserve a bouncy blowout: To maintain the volume of your blowout and avoid any creases, use a soft, foam styling donut (like the Wrap Up) or large, two-inch bobby pins to secure your hair in a loose, high top knot. To wake up to big waves, wrap smooth, almost-dry hair into two donut buns on either side.
To wake up with smooth, straight hair: Starting behind the ear, wrap all your hair in one direction around the head to create a flat, smooth surface and secure with large bobby pins where needed. Then tie a silk scarf tightly around your head to keep your hair in place all night.
To wake up with beachy, surfer girl waves: Make two French braids on either side of your head. Keep them as loose as possible and braid as far down to the ends as you can to avoid kinks and frizz. For a slightly less textured effect, run a flexible mousse through your hair, then twist medium sections away from your face into five to six buns and secure with bobby pins. You’ll have natural, Gisele waves when you remove the pins in the morning.
To avoid wild bangs: Whether it’s combing and loosely blow-drying or securing them down and to the side with a tissue and a duckbill clip, bangs need to be fixed immediately after washing or they’re hopeless. Run a light-hold matte pomade down the length with a bristle brush for quick taming in the morning.
To deep condition overnight: Start by washing your hair and focusing on the scalp. Using warm water will open up the cuticle and allow the moisturizers to seep into the cortex of each hair strand. Then apply the deep conditioner with a wide-toothed comb to ensure even application. Wrap your hair in saran wrap to keep your sheets clean and your hair together. In the morning, do a cool rinse to lock in the moisturizing ingredients.

Bold Eyeliner is Trending for Fall 2014
Bold eyeliner is on trend for Fall 2014. To become expert in doing your eyeliner , you’ll need to have the right color, the confidence to rock this edgy look, and a deft hand when applying the makeup. These tips will help you get it right.
Keep it basic
Black works best for this look, as it’s the most dramatic and delivers the biggest impact.We recommend you stick with black, but if you want to branch out from there, try a stark white liquid liner. More colorful eyeliner pencils can look very punk rock, so aren’t necessarily the best way to pull off this trend.
While eyeliner always requires a steady hand, you really need one when applying a thick coating. Otherwise, you come off like a kid playing with her mom’s makeup. Keeping your hand steady, apply eyeliner very close to the lash line. Connect the inside and outside corners to make the look appear seamless.
If you want even more of an impact, you can extend the outward edges for a Cleopatra-style bold eye. Or you can use a kohl pencil to draw big, elaborate edges that slope toward your brows. There are tons of pics online of bold eyeliner in runway shows, so you can get inspiration once you’ve mastered the basic application.
Love it and own it to really make this look come alive. It’s bold and definitely out there, so project your own confidence when wearing it.
In our Salon in Miami we ’re loving this look for women and we’re super psyched to help you give it a try. What other Fall 2014 makeup trends are you in ?
Feel free to pass by our Salon , we are located 155, Miracle Mile in Miami in the heart of Coral Gables .
