Fall Favorites at Music To My Hair Salon

OUR PICKS: FALL FAVORITES

Fall Favorites at Music To My Hair1. BEANIES

You quickly glance in the mirror before running out the door and see your roots really need to be touched up.

Not only will a warm beanie help keep your roots on the DL until your next touch up, but it can also make for an interesting addition to your outfit!

2. ORANGE EYESHADOW

The Limited Edition Rouge Brule Illusion d’Ombre Eyeshadow by Chanel is a gorgeous, semi-matte, dark burgundy shadow with warm-brown undertones.

The recent orange eyeshadow trend (when done right) is one of our favorite makeup looks for the season. Be a little daring and try this look out for yourself!

3. RIHANNA’S DREADLOCKS

I highly doubt we’re the only ones absolutely obsessed with Rihanna’s new dreadlocks.

We think everything from the length & thickness, to how she styles them are perfect and flawlessly fitting for fall.

4. VEGAN LIP BALM

Orange Owl Lip Balm is a life saver for winter-time chapped lips.

If you’re anything like me, then your lips & skin are already longing for the NY summer humidity & could probably use a little TLC right now.

Enter, the Cinnamon & Spice Lip Balm, which includes ultra-moisturizing ingredients like Organic Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil, Avocado Oil, Castor Oil, & Vitamin E Oil and has the most pleasant scent for fall.

The best part? Not only is this heavenly lip balm cruelty free & organic, but we actually carry this product in the salon!

*The lip balms come in 4 other scents (Citrus Splash, Minty Fresh, Zesty Splendour, & Simple Naked – Unscented) and would make excellent stocking stuffers!

5. DAVINES OIL NON OIL

By now you may know that the Davines Oil Non Oil is a holy grail product for the stylists at MTMH.

Not only does this product contain a synergy of high-quality ingredients with incredible moisturizing power, but the non oil also gives your hair some structure and provides anti-frizz & anti-gravity action!

Ask your hair artist to show you how to use this during your next appointment at Music To My Hair!

How To Do A Rope Braid Pony Tail

MTMH: HOW TO DO A ROPE BRAID PONY TAIL

jw-anderson-spring-summer-2016-hair-trends

THE STYLE

Fashion Week always sets the tone for the upcoming seasons trends. For those in the creative arts industries, Fashion Week provides inspiration and rekindles the flame of passion for all things hair, makeup, and fashion. One of our newest obsessions is the rope braid ponytail!

The style team at Aveda pulled off a beautiful rope braid pony tail over at the Public School show & Rebecca Minkoff opted for a bohemian version of the classic & sleek braid pony tail.

STEP 1. SMOOTH & SLEEK

Smooth your hair back using the Aveda Light Elements Smoothing Fluid $29. Secure with an elastic band.

STEP 2. HIDE YOUR BAND

To hide your elastic, wrap a small piece of hair around the hair band and secure with pins. This will give your hair a more polished look.

STEP 3. SPLIT IT UP

Next, split your pony tail into two equal sections. Begin twisting the hair in each section to the right.

Cross the right section of hair over the left section to begin forming the rope twist braid.

STEP 5. FOLLOW THROUGH

Continue twisting your separate sections to the right as you wrap the sections over each other to the left. Once you’ve reached the end of your braid, secure with a clear elastic.

STEP 6. FINISH IT OFF

Finish this look by blasting your hair with a strong hair spray like the Aveda Control Force Hairspray $31. This will help to keep the style in place & smooth away any potential fly aways. For added measure, spritz a bit of shine spray – we suggest the Brazilian Blowout Acai Shine Spray $28 for a beautiful finish.

BOHO CHIC VERSION

Prefer the more bohemian version of this style? Follow the steps below to get the Rebecca Minkoff runway hair styled by Tommy Bucket.

rope-braidSTEP 1. ROUGH IT UP

For this version, we suggest prepping your hair with a high quality texturizing spray & thickening tonic to create a rough base. Try out the Living Proof Instant Texture Mist $27 & the Aveda Thickening Tonic $29. 

STEP 2. BEND & SNAP

Using a flat iron, bend sections of hair back and fourth to create some body and encourage additional texture.

STEP 3. PART IT

Part hair down the center & pull it back into a ponytail at the nape of the neck. Secure with a clear elastic.

STEP 4. SEPARATE

Just like before, split the pony tail into two separate sections & roll them counter-clockwise.

STEP 5. TWIST TOGETHER

Twist the two pieces together to create the bohemian undone rope braid, securing at the bottom with a hair tie.

STEP 6. MESSY DO

Using your fingers, separate & rough the surface of the braid to create an effortless boho look. Set the look with hairspray & apply a small amount of the Davines Oi Oil to the front sections of the center part for a radiant shine.

Gigi Hadid's Beachy Waves

Want to achieve Gigi Hadid’s look at home? Just follow these four steps and you’ll be well on your way to having super model hair.

STEP 1.

Start with hair that is still a little wet (about 80% dry), apply the Aveda Phomollient Styling Foam, focusing on the roots for volume, and rough blow dry.

STEP 2.

Take your 1 in. and 3/4 in. curling irons and alternate irons and the size of the sections you’re curling (Pro Tip: make sure that the curls that frame your face are all curled away from your face!)  “You end up with more of an authentic beach wave than one created by a [/fusion_builder_column][fusion_builder_column type=”1_1″ background_position=”left top” background_color=”” border_size=”” border_color=”” border_style=”solid” spacing=”yes” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” padding=”” margin_top=”0px” margin_bottom=”0px” class=”” id=”” animation_type=”” animation_speed=”0.3″ animation_direction=”left” hide_on_mobile=”no” center_content=”no” min_height=”none”][single] curling iron.” says Gigi’s hair stylist, Jennifer Yepez, on the set of Calvin Harris’s music video, “How Deep is Your Love”

STEP 3.

Next, gently comb through the waves with your wide-tooth comb, and spray the roots with a little bit of the Davines Hair Refresher for some added volume.

STEP 4.

Finish the look off by lightly spraying the hair with Living Proof’s Texturizing Spray to enhance the beachy texture we’re looking for. “Throughout the day I kept adding more texture using a mix of the salt spray and texturizing spray in the roots,” Yepez says.

Gigi Hadid's Beachy Waves
