Hair Trends 2012

Short, long, blonde, black, brown or red yet. This year the trend up to now has been all blond color variations. At the Avant-Garde Salon & Spa in Coral Gables, city beautiful of Miami, Florida we are seeing couple of trends. Ombré remains very big among our elite clientele and more recently we are seeing a lot lot of red tone color. Christine our salon’s owner is sporting a new sangria shade and only get compliments from everyone.

We foresee changes for coming year, because the hair is dark again. Further highlights are striking and accessories such as long hair extensions for beautiful color accents are in fashion. This is reflected in the trend in hair color.

In 2012, women are wearing red on their HEAD! Already, we see that color increases with the stars in Hollywood. Our team of AG stylists who works for Univision on shows like Sal y Pimiento and Nuestra Belleza Latina 2012 are leading the movement.

Not everyone dare to try. Anyone who is unsure should first start with a warm brown according to Avant-Garde nationally renowned colorist Elena. So you can slowly get used to the new hair color. Especially effective is the red color on blonde hair, because they shine in different shades of color so that there is an interesting play of colors and gives the hair color looks very natural.

Your new hair color should match your skin and especially your eyes. The hair color red is definitely not for everyone! So you should not insist on bending and breaking on a redhead. If red does not fit, there is no problem, with a chocolate brown in different shades of one of the most fashionable hair colors for the year 2012.  By striking highlights, you can bring pep to your hairstyle; hair color is not so boring. Uniform dark hair makes the complexion look pale, but with striking highlights, you can counteract this. Give our salon a call and ask for more information about our hair extensions or feel free to stop in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced stylists. We’re located at 155 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Our zip code is 33134 and our telephone number is (305) 442-8136. Here’s a brief video about Avant-Garde Salon and Spa if you’ve never been here before.

Hair Extension in Coral Gables

These days, women are less adverse when considering hair extensions because:

  1. The quality of hair extensions is fast improving.
  2. The techniques for applying extensions are more effective today.
  3. Stylists are better trained and have a good amount of experience under their belts by now.

The actual hair used in the extensions can vary dramatically. Hair can be low quality which gives you and/or your stylist less maneuverability when it comes to creating the look you might be looking for. Also, poor quality extensions are visible to others – and we all know how terrible exposed extensions can look.

This brings us to the techniques of applying hair extensions. There are extensions that are removable and those that are applied on a more permanent level. Extensions should be adjusted after 2 months since your hair will grow which could possible expose the extension. Our stylists have plenty of experience applying hair extensions so they are invisible and integrate perfectly with your natural hair.

Here is a brief video of extensions being applied in our hair salon.  We offer a before and after because we not only apply the extensions but we cut and style them as well.

One important factor when it comes to considering hair extensions is obviously the skill level of the person applying the extensions but a close second is cost. Certainly, cost is important, however, we strive to educate people that when it comes to something like hair extensions, that are on one of the pre-dominant features of your body – your head, you should look at more than just the amount charged. Here’s why…

  1. There is a skill involved in applying hair extensions properly and a stylist will have invested time in becoming good at it. It may cost more somewhere else but you’re likely to find that you’ll be happier with the result if your extensions look natural and blend into your hair properly.
  2. Make sure to ask anyone you’re considering using about the quality of hair in the extensions they will be using.
  3. Make sure that the person applying the extensions is also a quality stylist. Too often we have seen people come into the salon needing help with their extensions because they were applied incorrectly or they visibly didn’t look natural.
  4. We don’t proclaim to be the cheapest salon in town when it comes to hair extensions but we can tell you this, you’ll love how your new hair will look when you leave our salon.

Hair extensions are really fun because they let you change your appearance temporarily or you can achieve that look you’re waiting for now by getting your hair to the length you’re looking for until your natural hair growth catches up.

Give our salon a call and ask for more information about our hair extensions or feel free to stop in for a complimentary consultation with one of our experienced stylists.

We’re located at 155 Miracle Mile in Coral Gables. Our zip code is 33134 and our telephone number is (305) 442-8136. Here’s a brief video about Avant-Garde Salon and Spa if you’ve never been here before.

Laser Hair Removal in Coral Gables

We offer laser hair removal services in our Coral Gables hair salon where we feature the Gentle YAG Candela Laser. This is one of the fastest most powerful lasers on the market today.

GentleYAG laser hair removal can be used for any area of the skin which has unwanted hair, including the face, neck, chest, back, bikini area, underarms, arms and legs.

This laser procedure may be used on women and men, and from teenagers to seniors. Any skin type may be treated including Asian and African American skin types. The hair must be pigmented, either brown or black. Because the laser targets pigment, blonde and gray hairs cannot be removed with the GentleYAG.

Below is one of our luxurious and clean spa rooms where we perform laser hair removal procedures.

The GentleYAG Laser is a powerful and versatile machine to use for unwanted hair and works on several different skin types.

Why did we choose GentleYAG for our Coral Gables Hair Salon?

·         Because it’s powerful

26,333 watts of peak power and capable of delivering fluences up to 600 J/cm2 for vascular applications, and hair removal energies in pulse durations as short as 3ms for unparalleled treatment efficacies, especially finer hairs.

·         Because it’s versatile

Non-ablative treatment, including fine lines and wrinkles, and for pseudofolliculitis barbae (PFB), or beard bumps, leg and facial spider veins.

·         Because it treats all skin types

Deep penetration with minimal scattering of laser energy makes the GentleYAG ideal for all skin types, especially dark and tanned skin.

Does laser hair removal hurt? When the laser is applied to the skin, customers feel some stinging, similar in sensation to a little pinch on your skin. We apply an anesthetic cream to the area being treated for 30 minutes prior to the procedure. This ensures your comfort during the treatment.

After the customer has had the topical anesthetic cream on for 30 minutes, a cool gel is applied to the area being treated. Dark glasses are worn to protect the customer’s eyes from the light. With the customer in a comfortable, relaxed position, the GentleYAG hand piece is applied to the skin.

How long does it take? The length of the treatment varies, from fifteen minutes to an hour or more, depending on which area is being treated.

In general, customers have two to six treatments, approximately every four to six weeks. Customers with darker skin types may require more treatments.

What will my skin look like afterwards? The appearance of the skin after using the GentleYAG Laser varies from customer to customer, depending on their skin type and area treated. Most customers report experiencing redness and some swelling of the treated area with mild discomfort similar to the sensation of a light sunburn. This may last from an hour to a day. Hair from the treated area may shed. You should be able to return to your usual activities right away.

Cold compresses applied to the treated area help to reduce redness, swelling and discomfort. Customers may shave carefully as soon as the day after their treatment. Customers notice that treated hairs will shed during the week or two following treatment. Gradually, it becomes apparent that some hairs are not re-growing while others are finer.

It is important to protect all your skin from the sun using a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every day as well as sun protective clothing.

The GentleYAG Laser causes significant hair reduction in the areas treated. After two to six treatments, most customers are satisfied with the results. These effects are permanent, although a touch up may be required from time to time. In some people, complete hair removal may not be attained.

If you’d like to schedule a laser hair removal appointment, please call our salon at (305) 442-8136 and we’d be happy to give you any additional information you might need. We are located at 155 Miracle Mile in the heart of Coral Gables.

 

Ombre Hair Color Technique at Avant-Garde Salon and Spa

Ombre hair is that half brown, half blonde look where the tips of your hair look ‘dipped’. The style is sexy in an edgy way. Ombre is a French word that literally means shaded and it is a hot trend in hair color this year.

We think it’s important to share with people considering Ombre is that it is not something you want to try at home. This is a coloring technique has to be done properly or else you’ll end up looking like you have over-grown roots. The difference with over-grown roots is that over-grown roots typically look like two colors that don’t match with a distinct borderline. When our colorists do Ombre at Avant-Garde Hair Salon, it is obvious that the effect was intended.

Most people ask to see samples of a salon and Colorists work, so we’re pleased to share this video by clicking the link below to be taken to our Official Avant-Garde YouTube Channel and watch our team perform Ombre on the girl below.

Ombre color done at Avant-Garde Salon and Spa. Notice the dramatic color contrast between her roots and her ends, but because the transition is gradual (this is really key), it’s not a harsh look.
Ombre from all sides!

Another example of a beautiful ombre color.

 

The Ombre is meant to be a gradual fade of color that should be feathery and subtle. There should be no in-between. The colors must be chosen wisely so it’s definitely a smart move to have a professional Colorist do this for you. The colors chosen must complement and fade into each other.

So why should you give the Ombre technique a try?

  • It’s a low-maintenance hair color technique.

Ombre is a fairly easy hair color look to keep up. For the least maintenance, go as close to your natural hair color as possible near your roots, then gradually go lighter down the hair shaft.

  • Use it as anti-aging hair color trick.

Ombre is actually a way to imitate the hair color of your childhood. Remember when you’d get so much sun in the summer that your hair would naturally lighten? Ombre hair color gives off that youthful look.

  • It is an easy way to grow out your roots.

The whole purpose of the effect is to make it look like you’re growing out your roots on purpose.

  • Ombre is a sexy and edgy trend.

This can be a fresh and unique look for you. It’s casual and looks like you’ve been at the beach all summer. When done right, it’s an extremely flattering way to “go lighter.” If you’re thinking about going blonde but feared that it wouldn’t work with your complexion, Ombre hair color is a nice compromise.

Here are some celebrities that have had Ombre done to their hair.

Hair Color Correction in Coral Gables

They try to conserve money.

  1. They don’t have time to get to the salon.
  2. They have a friend who can ‘do it’ for them.
  3. They did their own color at home
  4. They went to another salon where the didn`t have stylist color experience

Coloring hair is a complicated process since a stylist needs to know the chemical and color charts and be familiar with the different level of peroxides needed for different hair types. Processing time is also something that has to be monitored closely.

Here’s the good news…bad hair color can be fixed; however, there are some things you’d need to know and prepare for:

  1. You’ll need to find an experienced stylist that specializes in color correction. Why? Because not every stylist or colorist can repair a bad color job. A stylist must prepare for this process and they really do need to know their color and chemical charts.
  2. Fixing color is not a one-time process. Therefore, as a client, you should be prepared for a few visits to correct your hair color and keep your hair looking healthy. This also means that you need to be prepared to make a financial commitment to repair your appearance as you’ll be paying for the colorist’s knowledge and expertise.
  3. Get over the embarrassment of coming in and asking someone to fix your hair. We’ve come across lots of customers who said they were too embarrassed to come to a salon to fix their color so they thought they would keep trying on their own. Once they took the initiative to get their color fixed, they were thrilled at how they looked when the process was done and vowed to never let an inexperienced colorist touch their hair again.
  4. You need to be comfortable and willing to try different suggestions because your hair will react differently through the color correction process. Your color might not be able to be corrected during your first visit, so you’ll need to be patient during the process. Often times there has been such a bad build-up of color and the hair is fried or damaged as a result of poor color processing so deep –conditioning treatments might be necessary as well.

Because hair color is often considered and art, you’ll need to find a good salon and stylist and stick with that person through the color correction process.

Why? Because you need someone who will be honest with you and experienced enough to take you through the color correction process. For example, there are different levels of peroxide used in color correction and your stylist needs to know what to do to keep your hair from getting any further damaged during the correction process and how to remove all the different tones that might be in your hair. You’ll need to find a salon that carries a quality hair color – this author uses and recommends Goldwell for hair color in general – especially when fixing someone’s hair color.

In this picture, we are illustrating a color correction by Elena. If you are interested in correcting your color or changing your color, please consider using our professionals here at Avant-Garde Hair Salon in Coral Gables

 

As a colorist and stylist for several local television personalities and with lots of experience correcting hair color, I find it very satisfying and rewarding to correct someone’s hair color. Transforming someone’s appearance and giving them that feeling of confidence is extremely rewarding for me.

If you aren’t completely satisfied with your hair color and are looking for a knowledgeable stylist or colorist, I encourage you to give me a call and schedule a consultation where I can look at your hair and determine the best way to start the color correction process. If you’re willing to put your hair in my hands, I can assure you we’ll fix your color and we’ll get you that look you were trying to achieve. It might take a little time and a few visits, but the final result will be worth it.

Remember, coloring your own hair might be inexpensive but when you need to fix it, it can get pretty costly as you’ll need to invest additional time and money. So, we recommend that if you’ve never colored your hair, that you start out properly and start with a professional who has lots of experience with hair color and chemicals.

The information for this article was provided by Elena De Vera who is a master colorist has been a part of the Avant-Garde team for 23 years. If you’re interested in a color consultation with her, please call us at (305) 442-8136.
