Love is in the Hair!

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and love is in the hair. To some, it’s an overly commercialized holiday. But many of us are hopeless romantics, who absolutely ADORE the idea of Valentine’s Day and everything it stands for.
The secret to a great and successful Valentine’s Day night out is to keep it simple, soft and natural.
We asked our stylist to create four of their favorite go-to styles that can be recreated easily and with just a few products and even less time.
Sexy Teased-up Waves
Perfect for sexy singles, this look is unfettered and totally carefree. A word of caution: big, buoyant curls tend to attract a lot of attention.
Start building body in the shower with Pureology’s Clean Volume Shampoo and Conditioner. Then with towel-dried hair and a generous amount of Redken’s Guts sprayed directly onto the roots of the hair at the crown and Redken’s Heat Design through the ends for added volume.
Blow-dry with a large round brush, pulling hair up and out to create lift at the roots. Then wrap random sections around a 1-inch curling iron using Redken’s Iron Shape for heat protection and memory.
Once hair cools, brush through the curls and tease at the crown. Finish with a light mist of Redken’s Forceful Hairspray for touchable hold and shine.
Super Sleek Pony
It’s simple but chic. The power of a good ponytail should never be underestimated. You can never go wrong with a perfectly sleek ponytail
Blow-dry hair smooth with Redken’s Diamond Oil Glow Dry. Using a rounded soft bristle brush smooth hair into a sleek, high ponytail.
Make sure to smooth out all bumps. Use another small amount of the Diamond Oil Glow Dry over pulled back area for a glossy finish.
Take a piece of the pony from the underside and wrap around the base of the ponytail and secure with a pin to hide the elastic. Spray the whole look with Redken’s Forceful Hairspray for hold and shine.
Undone Bun
Inspired by the classic ballerina bun, this ultra-chic top knot is strong and sexy. This is a great way to update your usual, thrown together bun-look while still looking soft and girly.
Spray your second-day waves with Redken’s Pillow Proof Two-Day Extender Dry Shampoo to refresh yesterday’s style and for some extra texture.
Smooth hair towards the top of the crown with a soft bristle brush and secure with an elastic. Holding the ends of the pony spin until the tail begins to wrap around itself.
Loosen spots around the strands and secure with pins as you wrap the section into a bun shape. Spray with Redken’s Wind Blown Hairspray for lightweight hold and texture.
Simple Sexy Side Braid
This one requires hardly any effort but still feels appropriate for a night out on the town. With its deliberately tousled texture, the new side braid has a sweet coquettish charm.
Spray dry hair down with Redken’s Fashion Waves Texture Spray. This gives a slightly salted, beachy feel to the hair.
Reserve a few small pieces around your face to create a soft fringe and direct the rest of the hair to the side opposite your part. Separate the hair into three even sections. Braid down the strands holding your hands to one side of your face.
Secure with an elastic and loosen some strands while moving back up the braid to give it an undone feel. Bend the few strands you left out around a 1” curling iron to create a soft, face-framing wave. Finish with Redken’s Windblown Hairspray for a windswept lived in feel.

DIY Braided Mohawk Bun
From everyday braid styles to undo’s for special occasions, we’ve got everything you need to create an easy yet elegant hairstyle all by yourself. Sometimes, reinventing your look and feeling like a million bucks is as simple a trying something new with your hair.
This braided mohawk bun is a simple style that easily transitions from day to night and can be worn dressed up or casual. Working with hair that is already waved, add some Redken Pillow Proof Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo at the root to absorb any oils from the scalp and create a slightly ruffed-up texture.
Start with a part that extends from both temples back towards the crown of the head. Create an inverted french braid beginning quite close to the front hairline.
Secure the braid at the crown with an elastic. Working from back to front, loosen the outside sections to add volume to your braid.
Gather the unbraided ends of the section and begin twisting, pulling random pieces out as you go. Let the section twist in onto itself and create a bun shape.
Secure with pins and finish with Redken Windblown Hairspray for an airy, ethereal feel.

From dark and brassy to silver and icy doesn’t happen with a blink of an eye. So, if you’re considering a major hair color transformation like this rising trend, you want to keep reading to find out how this look is achieved.
Take a look at this before picture:
Jessica’s guest came in with 4” of regrowth and old balayage highlights that had turned quite brassy. There were a lot of different color action going on!
Step 1: Jessica used Redken FlashLift with 40 volume and pHBonder to lighten in Zone 2.
(Zone 2 describes the mid shaft of the hair strand; starting from an inch away from the scalp to about two inches from the ends.)
She used a balayage technique to achieve a easy natural blend coming off the root area but saturated well to lighten the darkest part of the hair and remove any brassiness in the mid shaft.
Time: Approx. 45 minutes
Step 2: Then she thoroughly rinsed the hair making sure to remove all signs of the product. Followed by an application of Redken’s pHBonder Step 2 treatment and shampoo using Redken Extreme Shampoo and finally using Redken’s Chemistry Extreme Shot to strengthen the hair in preparation for color deposit.
Time: Approx. 10 minutes
Step 3: The Color! A base color application using Redken Color Fusion in 5T with 10 volume then Jessica stretched the root out about two-inches. Then she added highlights with Redken Hi-Fusion B with 10 volume. The remaining color was applied using equal part Color Fusion clear and 8T with 10 volume.
Step 4: Cut and Style.
Jessica gave her guest a long layered haircut and then applied Redken PillColorow Proof Primer & Guts 10 to her roots. To give her a smooth and voluminous blow-dry with lots of movement she applied  Satinwear 04 to her ends.
For heat protection and hold Jessica applied  Iron Shape 11 then curled the hair back and away from her face using a 1 1/4 inch curling iron. This creates a soft wave that perfectly accents her amazing color!
Finish with Fashion Work 12 for a medium hold and workability. Jessica sent her client home with four products: Redken Color Extend Magnetics Shampoo and Conditioner to maintain her color, the brand new Extreme Mega Mask to keep her hair nice and strong and pHBonder Step 3 to use once a week before her shampoo to maintain her hair’s natural pH levels.
The result is a gorgeous icy silver blonde with hints of blue! An investment of time and resources but all worth it.

Out with the old, in with the new…’do! Sometimes the best way to give yourself a pick-me-up is to shake up your beauty routine and we’re here to help! When setting style resolutions for this year, remember you don’t need to take drastic measures to freshen up your locks. When it’s time to change your look we’ve got you covered.

Whether you’re ready to turn to your stylist and say “Do whatever you want!” or you’re just considering  small changes to your usual color or style.image1 At Salon Adrian we’re here to help you make those subtle but significant changes.

Here is a glimpse into what 2017 has in store.

Nude and Natural Nude is in and not just on your lips. Keeping your hair color as close to your natural color is in this year. Pairing a color that compliments your skin-tone and creates a natural and nude look that’s classic. Rich browns, velvety coppers and warm blondes are leading the 2017 color wheel, think Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner.

Pretty in Pastel Considered a color change? Give your hair a pop of color wIMG_8708ith soft pinks, purple’s and blue’s to give your look the edge-appeal you’ve been looking for.  Ask our Redken certified stylist how to keep this look vibrant and healthy all year long with Redken Color Extend.

Bold and Bronde This look was popular last year, but our style forecast sees a rise in this trend in 2017. Bronde is a mix between blonde and brunette and creates a sun-kissed look. It adds depth to hair and can be adjusted to compliment your skin tone by using more cool or warm tones. Many times bronde is applied using the newest technique, balayage, which starts below the root and allows for lower maintenance.
