Snuggled next to the luxury boutiques of super chic Malibu, LA’s celebrity nesting spot, sits one of the area’s most celebrated salons, Cie Sparks operated by the talented team of Michael Sparks and Heather Cie who have shared some of their thoughts on what’s hot in hair for 2015.
“Head bands or large bands with soft pull back hair is great for an evening. Tip: when pulling back hair the bun in back of head lower or higher is perfect and not so polished. Far side parts with bobby pins and large round brush blow dry with little bump on the end of hair.
- Natural Bo-ho looks are always in.
- A soft natural wave can be achieved by natural hair dry and using large curling iron…. Use curling iron once hair is dry grab random pieces and pull on ends… Less is best! I really love this look for the above breast in between color bone length….
- Sleek with a great serum to finish off hair is always great! Smooth hair with brush than flat iron … Once done use serum to create that gloss smooth almost wet look.
- Short hair bobs with movement will keeping it chic. Far side parts and don’t be scared to use bobby pins to keep the fair side to stay…
- Natural is always best if going for long hair…. Below breast long around face and add slight movement down low… This look is really created by a great haircut… Don’t be scared to have a slightly blunter bottom will softening up the layers…. This will allow movement with structures.
- Blondes have more fun with a natural look that’s lighter around face with less ombré but the ombré allows lower maintenance for clients. Keeping the ombré less dramatic with a finer weave looks beautiful for 2015.
- Brunettes such go for rich softer Browns using a gloss to make manes shine.
- Redheads will wear softer light hues.
With all this said. A cut really complements a color and vise versa. Layers done right really help the look of a ombré and a beautiful color job really makes the layers look great. Make sure your stylist and colorist are in the same page.
