We shot a video yesterday at one of our client's salons. It as a Tuesday afternoon and the place was busy. A Tuesday! And it was the Tuesday after the national budget crises in the US. Economic indicators still looking a bit glum and the employment situation still hasn't turned around. Yet, the beauty salon was full. No squeezed beauty budget will keep any self righteous diva from getting her ration of glamor. People will spend money on those events and things that make them feel pretty. I say "amen" to that!After all, a visit to beauty land is truly one of life's little treats. It's the neighborhood pace of refuge and fellowship, so to speak.
So, during the video shoot, I wanted to find out about the latest trends in hair styles, colors, etc. and see what treatments we spend our money on. What are the 2 hottest trends? The feathered extensions and the ombre treatment.
FEATHERS- You've seen these colorful feathered hair pieces all over the city. Their easy-to-apply strips of feathers that come in a variety of striking neon colors that get attached to your real hair and run anywhere from $10 to $20 per piece. The whole thing generally runs, according to Maria at the Aura Hair Emporium between $40 & $40 bucks to do. It's more appealing to tweens and young adults. Yea...I can't see a pink feather blowing in my hair.
OMBRE- Not sure I get this one. The ombre treatment shows gradual color on hair, but just the opposite of what I'm used to seeing. So roots are dark and the color is applied toward the ends of your hair. It reminds me of highlights in reverse. It's hot among the celebrity crowd and is now a big hit in local salons around the country. This treatment has been dubbed as the hottest anti-aging hair trend. The lighter color is supposed to make you look younger. Will somebody please show me how?
Hey, whatever it takes to make us look better than we feel. A peek in the mirror can work wonders after a day at he salon. And who cares that we spent the mortgage money. At least we'll look good on skid row.
