from platinum to fiery, just in time for fall

Winter is quickly approaching but there is still time for changing color. We want to show off a major fall transformation on our assistant, Sheena. In three steps, hairstylist Jenni Renshaw took Sheena from platinum blonde to fiery copper red (new fringe included). Sheena started as a platinum blonde with about 1.5” of natural regrowth, so, to fill in the ends (non-pigmented hair), she added a filler color to establish a neutral base. The second step involved root to end with filler #2 to even out the tone and porosity and to add the depth needed for the vibrant end result. In the final step, for added dimension and shine, Jenni used Davines Finest Pigments Copper plus clear glaze. The addition of fringe was a last minute decision that turned out to be the perfect thing to compliment Sheena’s new look. Check out the end result below, and book an appointment for yourself here.

hang on to summer with evo's salty dog cocktail beach spray

The kids are back in school and the sweltering summer heat is sizzling out. And while fall may be on the horizon, we’re not sure that we want summer to end (yet). There’s still plenty of time to soak up the sun, and whether you do so at a last minute trip to the beach or in your backyard, nothing feels quite as lovely as loose, windblown locks. That’s where evo’s Salty Dog Cocktail Beach Spray comes in.

Comprised of safe ingredients including Magnesium Sulphate (giving your waves that beachy crunch), Hydrogenated Castor Oil (for the tiniest bit of shine) and a handful of other truthful ingredients, the summer spray from our favorite Aussie brand is designed to give your hair what evo calls, “fresh from the beach malleability without having to deal with hostile crowds or riot police.”

And the best part? It’s a lazy girl’s best friend. All you have to do is apply a bit to damp hair, and boom! We can hang on to summer for a little bit longer.

nyfw beauty trends to give a go now

Let us turn our attention from the elaborate Dragon Con ensembles and makeup of the past week to what's happening in the fine city of New York. Sure, New York Fashion Week is showing us what's to come next spring, but what's to say we can't go ahead and give these emerging beauty trends a whirl? Its all got to do with lips and this fashion week, they're candy colored, especially when it comes to the orange variety. While it may not mean that we're trading in our beloved red sour patch kid for an orange one, it may mean we're trading in the classic red lip – just a little. Bubblegum pink and cherry red are also on the menu.

Grunge and glamour are the key words when it comes to hair. Alexander Wang sent natural, but voluminous waves down the runway which he achieved by blow drying the locks 75% then misting on some texture (Evo Mister Fantastic Texture Spray will do). Then, Rebecca Minkoff proved braids aren't going anywhere by drawing inspiration from our favorite Frida Kahlo. The roughed up, braided headbands the models wore were created by plaiting three ponytails into four strand braids and wrapping them around the head before loosely pinning them into place. Chunky top knots and low, textured pony's also carried fashion week's grunge and glamour tone.

Nails also continue to be on the rise. We can't wait to visit our friends at BUFF to try Ruffian's updated nude nail which were edged with shades like violet, red and army green and Tess Giberson's grungy nail. The distressed nails were created by applying one dark coat, which was immediately wiped away leaving only a bit of polish around the cuticle. Funky enough, right?
