ROCOCO LA

PROM!

School is almost out for the summer!!! But there’s one big event coming up before graduation day, PROM! 

Time to find the perfect dress with shoes to match, jewelry to tie it all together, fresh mani and pedi, and maybe a date if you feel the need (I always preferred just a big group of girlfriends). But just as important as the dress if your hair. It’s time to dress up from head to toe and feel like the inner glamor goddess you are.

Your hairstyle can be a great reflection of the inner you.

Maybe you’re a classic beauty and would like something like this…

Or perhaps a twist on a retro hairstyle is more your thing…

Maybe the inner you is some chic bohemian beach goddess…

None of the above? Like to stand out from the crowd? Then an avant gard look is for you…

Spring is officially here! The temperature begins to rise as we quickly approach summer, you may be asking yourself what the fashion do’s and do nots of this season are. Here at ROCOCO Salon we pride ourselves in helping or clients keep up with not only the how-to’s of hair, but the musts and must not’s in everything. From nail color to the age old question: Should I go colorful and bold, or keep it classic?

Here are a few simple tips to make the most of your spring to summer transition

HAIR: Pretty in Pastels

The ombre is one of the lowest maintenance and hottest styles in LA fashion today. Try mixing up those light blond ends with some daring pastels. No, not your average baby pink or blue, spice it up with a metallic tone, or try something like a luscious lavender or mint green. Commitment-phobic? Don’t worry here at ROCOCO Salon we carry Fabuloso, the only true semi-permanent color on the market. Fabuloso washes out in approximately 16 washes (or try a little clarifying shampoo to if you’re antsy) until you’re ready for the next hair adventure.  From just a few subtle silver highlights, to a full color infused ombre, we have the necessary ingredients to create your custom color.

Looking for something a little less wild? That’s perfectly ok! Blondes and light brunettes are a summer must. But no need to fry your hair to the point of no return to get to that color all at once. Take advantage of the season between the cool deep colors of winter and the warm beachy shades of summer. Add some neutral balayage highlights and progressively take your hair to the perfect summer California blonde.

NAILS: Go long or go home!

Stiletto, almond, or coffin… Whichever your shape of choice may be long nails are in. Don’t be afraid to change up your colors the symmetry, or mix-matched designs and gems. As with any spring time flare, pastels are in, currently I’m rocking my signature stiletto nail (talons at this point really), with a pastel peach, electric blue, and gold glitter mash-up. My dear friend, fellow blogger, talented hairstylist, and fellow nail extraordinaire, Erinn, is staying classy with a nude and deep red alternation, coupled with with a simple chevron design on her ring finger.

MAKEUP: Pucker-up!

This season look forward to seeing subtle sun-kissed skin with mild rosy cheekbones, light shadows with a thin cat-eye black liner, and prepare to have the attention drawn to those beautifully kissable lips.

Here is a simple how –to in order to achieve this look in 10 easy steps:

1) Apply a primer, moisturizer and SPF. You can get all of these essentials in one with a BB Cream. My personal favorite is BB Cream is by Stila and you can find it at SEPHORA ($38)

2) Apply your preferred liquid foundation

3) Apply a mild bronzer right below your check bone (where it concaves between your jaw and cheek bones) to create a slight contouring effect. My preference is HOOLA by Benefit at SEPHORA ($28)

4) Apply blush at cheekbones, be sure to blend a little with the bronzer below. Any Soft pink or peach color will do. NARS is a great brand at SEPHORA ($30)

5) Eyebrows are a matter of preference. On both clients as well as personally I use M.A.C.’s 208 small angle brush ($20) with an eye shadow. A rule of thumb is to go one shade lighter than your natural brow color and add warmth or coolness as desired. This results in a filled in but not drawn on effect, and you can always apply more shadow for a more dramatic effect.

6) Eye shadow can be done in a multitude of ways. Currently my favorite is ‘Girlie’ by M.A.C. ($15) on my lid with ‘Fig’, also by M.A.C. ($15) under my bottom lashes. However, feel free to pick your poison, this season stick with the light soft tones, but fall anywhere from beige to blue.

7) Eyeliner is another one of those preferential applications. I like to use the 288 brushes ($15) and Fluid Line ($16) from M.A.C.

8) Apply Mascara of choice

9) Last but not least; lips. Here you can really go big. My personally favorite at the moment is ‘Lady Danger’ M.A.C. matte lipstick ($16). But rock anything from a bold fuschia to a creamy pastel peach. A good tip I’ve found is to slightly mismatching darker lip liners with lighter lipsticks; it add dimension and makes your lips appear fuller (blend, blend, blend!).

10) Finish with a light powder dust and you’re done!
