The top knot, the low chignon and the romantic braid, are all the styles that have made it strong through each season of 2011 and will continue to do so into 2012…
The low chignon has made a huge come back this year in a tousled, flirtatious and sensual way. To imitate this look, start by smoothing the hair loosely back into a low ponytail and secure it with a band. Spray Pureology’s Strengthening Control Hairspray to hold hair in place. Tease the ponytail and begin to wrap a big section around the band, making sure the hair is flared. As you shape the chignon, secure it with bobby pins allowing some hair to loosely hang out. Top it off by spraying Pureology’s Strengthening Control Hairspray and Pureology’s Glossing Mist.
This summer’s staple, the soft, loose and romantic braid, will be going strong right into the fall and winter. To create this girly look start by adding a tiny amount of Pureology’s Dry Shine to the mid shaft and ends of hair. Loosely brush back the sides and top of the hair to the nape and begin to braid by separating the hair into 3 sections, overlapping each strand with the other until you reach the ends of the hair. Secure the ends with a band and gently pull out a few face framing pieces, maybe a few just behind the ear. For a dressier look, use our favorite Curl Wand by Sultra on a few of those loosely pulled out pieces. Finish it off by spraying Pureology’s Strengthening Control Hairspray and Pureology’s Glossing Mist.
The perfect way to dress up any of these looks would be to add a headband or a hair barrette. Feather barrettes like these are available for purchase and custom made by Kelly Scripps, stylist here at Freddie B Salon & Spa.
Each of these styles offer ultimate texture and class... perfect for any look... day/evening, red carpet glitzy and, of course, the holiday party! For more hair and style inspiration be sure to follow our blog often!
To get your minds in the groove for that change, here are the top tips of the trendiest color changes for this season…
1) Sun kissed locks: Balayage has been a huge hit this year and will continue to
be throughout this season
and the seasons to come.
It’s an individualized and
custom coloring technique
that has minimal maintenance
and shows color beautifully
for lengthy periods.
3) Peek-a-boo: Surprise panels have regained momentum and are coming back this season bigger than ever! With this technique you can add a splash of color to any hair. For blondes, add a surprise panel of cinnamon or, for a fun twist, a cool lilac. For redheads, add a splash of soft rose or electric marmalade. For brunettes, add a band of espresso or a shock of blue violet!
4) Heat it up: It’s a gold rush from honey and amber to chestnut and maple! Warm tones are always popular in the fall and winter seasons. It’s important to warm up our colors in these seasons because our skin complexions change and warmer for winter is always a safe bet. Warm tones can be used as a
single process, face framing highlights/lowlights or even as surprise panels.
5) Happy Healthy Hair: Ammonia free simply can’t be beat! With so many advances in color over the years we now have the opportunity to choose better products for our hair! At Freddie B Salon & Spa, we are proud to offer an extensive array of ammonia free products from demi-permanents to (you betcha) permanent colors that cover 100% gray hair!!! To maintain those healthy happy locks at home we offer vegan and natural products and our favs are Pureology & Moroccan Oil!
The color trends this fall & winter are as fabulous as ever! Be sure to follow our BLOG frequently, because in the coming weeks we'll be posting How-to do's for you at home :)

To complete your look you must follow through with hair and makeup. Try easing into fall with a haircut. All of the stylists at Freddie B Salon recently attended an Alterna class with Michael Shaun Corby, and learned some great cuts to make this look possible! This season we are seeing 2 major haircutting trends: heavy fringes and Bridgette Bardot inspired long layers.
What a better way to start the very FIRST "freddie b blog" post than with an entry of images from our 1st Anniversary Dinner.
We celebrated together at the CandleLight in Ventura. The evening was full of great conversation, lots of laughing, good eats.... and of course, dancing!
We opened our doors 1 year ago in May 2010 and have grown to a team of ten talented, professional, and fun loving individuals that I just adore so much. Each day that we work together, I am reminded of how blessed I am to have the best salon team EVER ! ! !
