Silver Fox

Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Silver fox, Silver fox, what are the feeding you? Silver fox, silver fox, its not you fauuuult.

Specialty color is coming on strong for the Spring and Summer of 2015. Pastels, silvers and little pops of color hitting the magazines and runways! Now this tends to be a trend that comes in and out of style however I am loving how this lovely lady makes it look as classy as ever! I (Molly) did this at my lovely place of work, Morgan Ashley Salon. I feel so inspired! So if you are remotely considering making a change like the one above and live anywhere close to Birmingham, AL. 
Come  in! Come in! 

I or the talented ladies I work with are dyeing (pun intended) to make some new classy looks!

Undone-Air dried Waves

Thursday, March 19, 2015

Ladies, we are in luck... a new trend is emerging! A trend that promotes women to go all natural. I don't know about you all, but I have been waiting for this since I hit puberty. So to go along with this "trend" we want to do a Undone series! Inspirational looks and tips to help going all natural seem more intentional! You know, instead of looking like your alarm went off too late.

1. With this model, we had her come with air dried hair and no product. We perfected the look by selectively curling the curls around her face and the top layer. Focusing on sections of hair that dried a bit puffy and or flat. 

2. When you curl do not curl the whole piece, only curl a random part of the hair strand. (Example: On the last photo, see the front piece in front of her eye? Study how it actually has just one curl to it. We curled the lower middle part of that section. This creates a more natural undone look. 

3. Once you're done curling, go in with your hand and break up the curls.

4. Lastly, Product is key. Bring out the texture spray, dry shampoo, and even some hairspray. You need this to make you look less homeless and more fashionable! We like to throw in our choice of product both in the beginning and or end. 

5. Don't forget the root! Spray some of that dry shampoo or texturizing spray on them and break it up with your hand or brush! Its amazing the volume it gives you. 

Biggest Advice: DO NOT BE A PERFECTIONIST and have fun with it! Or you will end up like Shirley Temple.

SIDE NOTE: Both of us have mostly straight hair. We love this method for even ourselves! Even starting out with air dried hair helps give that messy texture.


Joanna's Haircut

Friday, March 13, 2015

Joanna joined me in the short hair world last month. I thought it might be coming.. the girl talks about short hair in her sleep. For instance, when I cut mine off she cried because she was so excited. Could have been the pregnancy hormones but I like to think she just thought I looked real fly. 

So without further adieu.. here is Joanna's new do. Starting trends nearest you. Thank you Joanna, for proving "mom haircuts" can be the best/trendiest ones of all!

From Joanna:
Yes. I cut it all off. Why? no particular reason. Just always wanted to, plus my husband mentioned short hair a couple times. Oh, and Theo kept pulling my hair so I decided to cut it out of reach :) My inspiration behind it was a mixture of two styles: messy with texture and sleek tucked behind my ears. I wear it both ways and its awesome! Mainly because it takes me 2 seconds. People ask me how i had the guts to cut off a foot of hair, basically it was just not caring how it would turn out! I honestly didn't. I just wanted a fresh start and practicality. Sure, I thought about the possibility of it not looking decent, but this really would be the time in my life to try new things like this. So I went for it! No regrets! And I love it. I'm still exploring ways to style it. So once I get it down, we'll share our favorite short hair go to do's!

Low Loose Bun | Runway Inspired Looks

Wednesday, March 4, 2015

You know that feeling when the days just slip past you, the days that come and go and feel like they were 2 weeks ago but they were just 2 days ago? I think what i'm describing is "busy". You guys busy? On the fashion runways we see all the looks that set the trends, and it seems like 2015 is doing a lot of...."loose" looks. Also known as what we like to describe as "i'm too lazy to put effort in my hair".  Thankfully, this will be perfect for us busy girls that don't have time for putting effort in our hair! So here you go ladies, the perfect "busy" hair style for your busy days, straight from the runway! 

tie a knot and pin. Yey!

This style is NOT for the listed:
Moms With Babies That Have Hands- You will work hard to get those perfectly loose whispys around your face, but your baby will not think you did the best job and will try to help you by pulling them out more. Which will just ruin your perfectly pulled out whispys that you had to hairspray in place and will probably pull out that loose bun you took forever to make look "effortless" and put.

If You Will Be Going Outside- The wind is not your friend.

Animal owners- If you have dogs, they will lick your face. There is a chance their tounge will catch a whispy and stick it across your face. If you have cats, they will think its a string on a stick and attack your face. Bird owners, the back of this style resembles a little birds nest. Considering this also requires a good bit of tease and dirty hair, they may make your hair a home. 

Lipgloss Wearers- Well, you guys are screwed with any hair style. But this, this is not for you. For obvious reasons. But for the sake of making sure, i'll tell you anyways: Your lips will be a magnet for those whispys. A very annoying strong magnet that no matter how hard you try, you will not win. Even if you were in space where there is no wind to ruin your day, somehow, that hair will find its way towards that lipgloss. They are like passionate lovers that can't be separated. 

This style is for the listed:
Runway Model- If all you're doing that day is walk up and down a runway, this is the perfect look for you.

The Model We Used For This Exact Shoot- If your name is Sarah and you have long beautiful red hair posing for a shoot. This will absolutely without a doubt work for you.

Bridal Looks for the non-ordinary Bride

Monday, February 23, 2015

A top knot, messy pony or disheveled side bun are a few of the options we came up with for the non traditional bride. We see these looks for the bride that is having a downtown wedding! Slightly modern and simple. Maybe even a courthouse elopement! 

All of these looks are created by a prepping the hair with texture and a whole 'lotta teasing!  No need for the curling irons or straighteners for these looks. All you need out of your tool bag is a comb and brush for teasing!

The top knot is placed up in a pony with a tie and then the tail is teased. Once its the size of the second photo (the messy pony) we started wrapping it around the tie, creating a large bun.  The Messy Pony is started the same, except once its teased we grabbed a small piece from underneath the tail and wrapped it around the tie. This is to hide the tie and finish the look. The Disheveled Side Bun was created by teasing around crown and ends. Then we gathered from ear to ear loosely and pinned towards one side. We then added the headband, tied and pinned it. With the left over hair we started pinning over the previous sections by twisting and pinning at random. 

Top Knot and Messy Pony: Dress is the Prato Romper and earrings are the CasaBlanca Earrings

Disheveled Side Bun: Dress is the Barletta Dress.  Headband is (closets to it) Pearl-Petal Halo and earrings are the Harper Studs

These looks are from the collection we did for BHLDN for Anthropologie.
