Welcome to Avant Gardes Blog!

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 Trendy with Tortoiseshell Colored

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.

What is the Microdermabrasion ?

New services in Avant-Garde Salon&spa !!

the Microdermabrasion

                                                                                                                     

You may have heard the term “microdermabrasion” used in your favorite salon or spa

                                                                                 in Miami

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.

 

Microdermabrasion facial

 

 

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 .

How to wake up with an awesome hairstyle , tips from Your Hair salon in Miami

Your Hair Salon in Miami is giving you a few tips to wake up with awesome hair !

 

Wavy 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.

 

 

 

Wavy hair

 

 

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.

 

imageTo 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.

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 ?

So Many times in Avant-Garde salon and spa , our clients and potential clients have asked about hair extensions.We get asked if we know how to do them , what we are thinking about them ,how long do they last and how much do they cost ?

Cost usually chases them away .It can be expensive to have hair extensions put in and maintaining them adds to that .

 

There are so many types of extensions too .

They can be tape in ,sewn in, or bonded to your hair . There are a lot of options and different costs and ways to apply them .They always have to be maintained .

But what if you could offer a compromise ? Something that requires very little maintenance and that you can do by yourself at home .

In Avant-Garde salon ,Miami ,Colral Gables , our stylists Greatlengths extensions specialist can tell you that it can be done with the  “Halo hair extensions”.

our hair salon located in Miami ,Coral Gables can introduce you a new way of thinking . Another wayh to have hair extensions with no commitment and less cost .

The Halo is a class act ts own . It is a weft of hair ,or a fall ,measuring anywhere from 12 inches to 24 inches length.

You can get it in a variety of colors to match your hair and it is 100% human hair  .The weft of hair is attach to a string similar to fishing line .

It is easy to apply . We show you one time and you can do it by your self the the next morning . Simply part the hair off into two sections .Then place the Halo at the base of your scalp and the string toward the front and top of the head . Blend and pull the hair that has not been sectioned off through and around the Halo .

You can curl the Halo extensions and add a good 7 inches below your actual hair .You can wear them everyday ,have different look , your friends will  ask you immediatly where to get one . It flowed and moved with your own hair , most of the people will not realize that your are wearing Halo extensions .It is not heavy ,and you will able to go about your day with ease and no worry of it coming off.
