Lite Brite: Spring Hair Inspiration

Despite the strange shifts in weather, spring is in full bloom here in Atlanta (hello, pollen) and we’re excited to freshen up your tresses! Stylist Jenni Renshaw says collar length; multi-texture hair is hot for spring. Make this “spring breeze blown” look your own in 4 steps.

  1. Set the tone: Use Davines Minu shampoo and conditioner for vibrant, juicy color.
  2. Go sleek: Blow-dry with Davines Melu heat protector spray.
  3. Get styled: Section hair into 1 to 1-1/2 inch pieces. Using a 1-1/2 inch barrel curling iron, start your curl in the middle. Leave the ends out for a tousled, wavy look.
  4. Finish it: Davines medium hold spray gives you soft, flexible hold.

To achieve this stunning shade, we’d use OWAY hair color for an organic, ammonia-free, bold and beautiful red! Craving a little more color in your life? Book an appointment for yourself here.

Finally, spring is here! Not only do we see it in Atlanta’s fine patio sitting, bicycle riding, beltline loving way, but in our hair and skin. Why? Spring brings along a big change in moisture balance. You know, the reason that city 800 miles from you makes your hair look better. Unlike the urge to sprint up the street for a King of Pops pop though, keeping your hair and skin healthy during the winter/spring transition is totally manageable.

Our friends over at EVO even have some tips and products. First off, they recommend their Happy Campers Hard-Working Moisturizer, a lightweight, leave-in moisturizer. The important thing here is the added sun protection that will keep your locks healthy during those beltline walks. Day of Grace Leave In Conditioner is the next smart move because (as EVO claims) it provides “100% more movement then a recently botoxed forehead”. Using a dab before styling will keep your hair in balance (and bounce). And lastly, EVO recommends Love Touch Shine Spray, their solution to dry, dull hair. As a weightless finishing spray, it magically adds both hold and shine. Thanks EVO!

We also recommend their Water Killer Dry Shampoo that we just got in to ease your “I wash my hair too much” woes. Skin takes a similar beating as we do the constant shuffle between outdoor warmth and humidity to indoor heat and dryness. To combat this “extreme combination” skin condition, Amy recommends 4 weeks of Dr. HauschkaRhythmic Night Conditioner ampoules as well as Dr. Hauschka’s Toned Day Cream as a perfect spring product. It moisturizes and protects all skin types with its unique blend of quince seed extract, beeswax, and rose petal wax. Have a balanced spring, friends (and don’t forget that sunscreen either).
