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!
Get ready for the beach ladies!
At Avant-Garde Salon and Spa the hair specialists are always working on the latest trends for local clientele and celebrities. One of this years latest trends is tortoiseshell hair. Tortoiseshell colored hair is sometimes referred to as escaille which incorporates hair color variations of chocolate, blondes and caramels that come together to form a perfect combination of layered hair colors.
By combining these warm colors together, it gives hair a new dimension and depth. Women who already have brown and/or brunette hair can incorporate this hair style with little maintenance after as it blends well with their existing hair roots. As hair continues to grow, this hair color technique works well in keeping an ombre look and feel.

You may have heard the term “microdermabrasion” used in your favorite salon or spa
but have wondered what it really is, and what it does for your skin. The following is an
explanation of the procedure and a list of the benefits microdermabrasion has to offer.
The term “micro” refers to the tiny crystallized diamond compound that is used during
the procedure. These diamond crystals are moved across the surface of the skin to
gently exfoliate, or remove, dead skin cells, pigmentation or dark spots, blackheads,
whiteheads, and other skin debris. When this top layer of skin is removed, the debris is
vacuumed away, leaving fresh, clean, new skin behind. This process stimulates blood
flow to the skin’s surface, as well as stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production.
For the first time in Avant-Garde Salon and spa , Elisabeth our facialist will perform a
speciality , the Microdermabrasion skin treatment , we are located 155 Miracle Mile in
the heart of Coral Gables , Miami .
Feel free to contact Elisabeth for a complementary skin diagnostic.
Elisabeth will be happy to answer all your questions and to determine with you the
process to restaure your skin .

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 ?
