Fresh Hair Trends for 2015!

What’s the trendiest look for April you ask?

No, It’s not pastel hair anymore!

Jewel-toned hair has become the hot new look celebrities are sporting nowadays on and off the camera. Previously, bold colors like blue and purple were associated with youthful, punky looks. But these new colors of gemstones such as ruby reds and amethyst purples are sophisticated and rich, not to mention super stylish. Jewel-toned hair is based off of gemstone colors. The colors are not light, like pastel-colored hair, they are more subdued and have dark undertones.  Ruby Reds, Emerald Greens, Amethyst Purples or Sapphire Blues are easily obtained.  No longer is the need to bleach your hair to a pale blonde shade prior to applying the jewel-tone colors.  This is good news for brunettes although girls with blonde or red hair can dye their hair darker to achieve this look.

If you’re not ready to make the jump for an all-over vibrant look,  simply try your favorite gemstone-color for a few highlights.  Still afraid?  You can achieve this look with Hair Extensions as an alternative.  Great Lengths and Hairdreams Hair Creations can provide you with the precise colors you desire.  There are no chemicals applied to your own hair and no need for any pre-lightening or coloring. The vibrancy and depth of the color(s) will never fade!  Then, when you are tired of one color, switch out your extensions for a different color. Adaptable, care-free, and easy to maintain!  They’re all beautiful, dynamic colors and easy to rock.

Best of all,  it’s fast and affordable!

Check out Selena Gomez and Katy Perry!  They look Gem-a-licious!

RED is the Color of February!


The color red seems synonymous with the month of February. It represents the red of fashion, the red of love, and the red of boldness.  We see Hollywood’s best display of walking down the famed red carpet for the Academy Awards, and also see red for Valentine’s Day.  Many will attend parties for these events and what better way to entwine both than with a  glamorous movie-star “do” for your galas.

This year we are seeing ladies on the red carpet rocking hairstyles that are vintage trends! Women are shying away from their highly straightened hair and turning towards soft and wavy hair that is classic and striking.   Bring a taste of Hollywood’s glitter to your Valentine’s Day by accessorizing with a headband  You may not have the opportunity to wear a diamond-encrusted cartier band like Charlize Theron, but you can create one with your own style.  No drastic cutting or coloring of your hair is needed and it’s an inexpensive way to make your statement.  Headbands can look great, they stand out and can actually hide and help disguise a bad hair day if need be.

Vintage is IN!  Don’t spend hours trying to flat iron hair straight and smooth.   Working with hair that has been washed a day or two prior or even with damp hair makes styling faster and easier.

Just a curling iron and a bit of volumizing and finishing spray is all that is needed.

If you are struggling with lack of waves, length or volume in your hair, I have the perfect solution in a quick, easy and glamourous way  Hair extensions are a great way to achieve one or all of these issues.  Great Lengths Hair Extensions or Hairdreams Hair Creations have natural wave and allow these styles to be attained easily.

Other stars who sported soft and wavy locks were Amy Adams, Reese Whitherspoon, Sienna Miller, Emma Stone, Jessica Chasten and Jennifer Lopez. You may not be a celebrity, but why not look and feel just as glam?

We all have a calling in our career. Some of us know right away and some follow intuition and life experiences.

My career calling was of a unique nature and not something I had anticipated exactly. Friends and clients frequently ask me how I got into this hair and beauty industry. So, I thought about it and traced back to the delicate moments that have lead me to this point in hairstyling and hair extensions!

I started this adventure in my youth.  My mother used to cut my bangs so short and then tape them to my forehead to dry.  If she didn’t perform this ritual, my baby-fine hair would stick out straight!  After many years(and many tears)of dreading those moments, I decided to execute this procedure myself utilizing the famed orange-handled sewing shears and pruning my shoulder-length tresses to a fashionable chin-length style.

The results were a hit as I continued on my hair-lopping spree throughout the dormitories where I was attending college.  Any head of hair would suffice as long as I could snip away and create a new look for those willing to trust my ability or lack thereof.

I’ve always had a passion for anything aesthetically pleasing and relating to individuals whose hair has been sorrowfully called  “frog fur”.  My motivations went beyond the aesthetics.  I not only wanted to be creative, I wanted to make people happy when they looked into a mirror.

Combining all of these pieces to the puzzle has allowed me the opportunity to morph this enthusiasm into a 30-year successful career as a Hairstylist.  Haircutting, highlighting, corrective-coloring were specialities  until I realized that I could not only remove the hair but add the hair as well.  This concept lent itself to the new hair treatment of Hair Extensions in my world.

Employing many types of Hair Extension applications has permitted me the knowledge and experience to decipher the best of the best.  Great Lengths Hair Extensions and Hairdreams Hair Creations fulfill that role.  It is made of 100% Indian or European Remy hair which is soft and shiny.  The bonds enable the brush to glide through the extensions from roots to ends without catching and braiding–it has never looked so natural!  Curled or straightened,  the extensions offer movement throughout the hairstyle.

Whether you are looking for length, volume, or chemical-free highlights or all of the above, Hair Extensions are a safe and speedy way to achieve your dream hair.
