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 .

305-442-8136

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 .

Despair
Something to happen
Before you
Before you let me tell you

What was it before you
Otherwise a preamble
A long road to cross
Then everything changes
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my body
Before you remembers
He felt of death

It is struggling
Singing in the desert
For whom it was
All these verses, all these tunes
Before you
Before you let me tell you

What was it before you
A repetition
Words las gestures
Then the explosion
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my arms
Had never hugged
But emptiness and cold

What was it before you
Otherwise a preamble
A long road to cross
Then everything changes
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my body
Before you remembers
He felt of death

What was it before you
Just a huge stage
Too big for me
And then all dance
Before you it was nothing
Or so little that my life
Began in the morning

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

Beach waves

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.

Trendy hair color for the falls by Your Salon Miami .

imageThe prettiest hair color for falls

Rose gold

“This season is all about rose-gold locks,” according to our Best  hair colorist specialists in Avant-Garde salon and spa Miami  as you can see on Jessica Chastain. We will recommend to finish the look with some  highlights topped with a demi-permanent gloss that’s blended with an even mix of gold and copper hues. It ‘s pretty with any skin tones  and the maintenance level is very low . Ideal for young clients who are looking for a change ,without going back to their salon every month .
Wheat blond

Platinum is still having its moment, but for dark blondes and light to medium brunettes who don’t want to commit to the maintenance it requires, try wheat blonde. It’s brighter and more buttery than dirty blonde with hints of light brown color peeking out at the roots or underneath. Maintenance level: medium.

Bronze

Brunettes seeking an instant face brightener should ask their colorist for bronze and golden highlights placed on the mid-shaft to the ends of their hair, says Goodwin. “It’s the perfect way to lighten your color and still look natural,” says Cunningham. Jessica Biel nails the look. Maintenance level: medium.

Dark highlight
All-over dark hair color can be severe; breaking it up with subtle chocolate highlights brightens it up and adds gorgeous dimension. The best part? Upkeep is minimal, since the highlights look most natural when they start mid-shaft and frame the face. Lily Aldridge is a perfect example of the trend.
