Every season, trUe is at the pulse of the latest international hairstyles and trends. Our team attends leading educational programs produced by top-rated industry icons and keeps a close eye on trade advancements and celebrity events. This year, the red carpet was glittered with stars experimenting with fuss-free colors, bobs of varying lengths, and natural textures. We hope you like hair accessories too, because they’re going to take center stage as the year progresses. For men, all we can say is move over “man bun”— you’ve been replaced by long tapered undercuts and clean side parts. International beauty expert, Nick Stenson coined the term “bronde” to describe the simple yet rich hair color worn by many celebrities during the 2016 Grammy Awards, most notably by Taylor Swift. The color melds blonde and brown to create a very wearable and easy to maintain shade. MODERN Salon Magazine also praised Meghan Trainor, recipient of the “Best New Artist” award, for her warm auburn waves, and predicts this will be a popular color for spring. The magazine also touted the hair texture of Selena Gomez, who wore her mahogany mane in bouncy curls. These celebs may require a team of stylists to create the perfect look, but trUe clients know that when they step into our salons, they receive VIP treatment too! When trying a new color or style trend for spring, don’t leave the end result to fate. Make sure your stylist hits the mark with these tips from trUe: A picture is worth a thousand words: Share your vision by bringing a photograph of the style and color you have in mind. Your stylist will review this and determine what will look stunning on you. Don’t be afraid to ask your stylist for input. trUe’s team can help you choose the right color for your skin tone, and the best cut and style for your face shape and bone structure. Slow and steady wins the hair race: To avoid instant regrets, try making big color and length transitions a gradual process. This will help you determine if you’re comfortable with your new look before taking the proverbial plunge. If you do decide to cut ten or more inches of hair off at one time, consider donating it to a worthy cause like Locks of Love. Even if it takes a few days to adjust to your new look, you can feel good that your donation will provide a natural hairpiece for children who suffer from medical hair loss. No Guts, No Glory: Remember to stay trUe to you! If you still love your “man bun,” keep it! If you want to defy the trends and do your own thing, the more power to you. Love switching your color? Why not try a kaleidoscope of them? Embrace your natural beauty with cuts and colors that enhance your unique features. Ask your stylist for tips to accentuate your tight curls or pin-straight hair. Different is beautiful, too! trUe’s team of expert stylists are waiting to meet all of your hair care needs and to bring out the glamour in your personal celebrity style.
