It’s officially winter and we hate it. Our skin is cracking, our hair is dry and everyone’s jackets are taking up our bar stools during happy hour.
Here are some tips to kick those blues and leave you dreaming of beachy waves, on a hot sandy beach down the shore.
Try Blue Hair Color – Seriously! Blue hair color is trending all around Jersey City and we love what the talented artists are coming up with. You can indulge in this trend without the commitment too! Try a few peek-a-boo pieces behind your ear, hide a subtle section underneath your haircut, or try temporary extensions. Here are 3 inspiring shades of blue from local hairstylists.
Try Bangs – While we mostly associate bangs with high level commitment there’s a new player in town: clip in bangs! I’m serious, when color matched correctly and blended in your hair they can change your look instantly in less than 10 seconds. And for those of you not afraid of commitment – it’s beanie season, the perfect time to try bangs!
Trending right now: Bridgette Bardot inspired curtain bangs.
Don’t be afraid to give them a try, your stylist should be able to suggest the perfect bang for your face shape.
Indulge in a hair mask! The cold air and constant friction from winter hats causes frizzy and unruly hair. Take an extra ten minutes, once a week and soften those tresses.
