The Top Knot
The Hair Roll/Chignon
Think the exact opposite of the “Top Knot” – this style is typically found at the nape of the neck with the hair either being sleek or with lots of texture.
This hair style adds an instant dose of formal to any occasion – the more sleek the style, the more formal it appears. This ‘do is perfect for adding a single flower – or even a band of flowers across the top the chignon. For a very modern look – take a jeweled head band or tiara and place it across the top of the form.
Perfect for the girl that does not like height – and we like doing these low styles on people where the hair on the nape of the neck is kinda funky (this style tends to cover all that up). Generally for those with medium to long hair.

The Loose Messy Bun
Either to the side or the back – this is the perfect “go to” hair style for any occasion. This style is so versatile there is literally a thousand ways this can be created.
This style is very popular with our girls that want a “convertible hairstyle” – what is that you may ask? It is a style that with minimal effort can be converted to a different look for later on. This hairstyle is typically taken down and with minimal curling can be transformed into a beautiful down ‘do with voluminous curls!
Best for the girls who’s hair tends to frizz or is naturally curly – this style is extremely forgiving. Best for medium to very long hair – just remember the longer the hair – the bigger the bun!

Why have a taste of Hollywood Glamor when you could have a three course dinner’s worth of awesomeness? We love the Hollywood Waves – this style is different than the typical “beachy waves” this is a sleeker much more sophisticated way to wear your waves.
This style looks best with a deep side part and it accentuates a beautiful “S” curve (think finger wave) on the top of the head into soft coiffed waves on the side that is not overly stiff.
Perfect for the girl that craves a sophisticated curl. The Hollywood Wave works best with fine to medium textured hair with a medium density – it can be done with extensions as well, but it looks best with natural hair.

Braids and plaits – what’s not to love? An easy way to achieve texture is through a woven pattern or braid. Fish-tail, Dutch (inside out French braid), and the Swiss braid (French braid that is wrapped around the head like a head-band) have all become very popular. Perfect for the person that wants to add a touch of whimsy to their style.
Braids have some of the most versatility – it can be very formal, or it could even swing to the extremely casual. Always fresh, and always chic – a perfect way to add a dose of youth.
Anyone at any time – your hair can be short, long, thick, sparse there are ways to add this beautiful texture to your ‘do.

The New Half-Up Half-Down
We have noticed a HUGE trend over the last year for hair styles that look like “they almost did it themselves – but better” and this was big with the half-up half down styles. Curls that were very relaxed, over simplified lines, natural texture etc.
Typically the half-up half-down style has height on the crown that is either smooth or textured, with the fall (the back) having texture (curls) and down. This still applies for the new version – just very deconstructed.
Perfect for the girl that wants a no-muss no-fuss kinda hairstyle who does not like a lot of detail in their style. Also perfect for the person that likes their hair down – but does not want anything in her face. Best for medium to thick hair that has a decent length (extensions can be added).
