Cop Their Cut This Spring Season at Miami Beach’s Best Hair Salon
From the runways to the red carpets and from the offices to the spring break beaches, the Spring 2016 hair scene is awash with new cuts and styles, including a few revamped versions of classic favorites. Pulling inspiration from a few of our favorite style superstars, McAllister’s seasoned stylists predict the four “must-have hair cuts” of the spring season. Which is your favorite? Tell us in the comments below!
Looking to freshen up your style for spring around South Beach? Bangs are the quickest way to instantly revamp your look with minimal effort. A welcomed evolution from the mod, blunt bangs of yesteryear, this season’s fierce fringe features styles that skim the eyelashes, framing the face and accentuating your fabulous cheekbones. Fiercey fringe lends itself to a “grown-out” feel and should seamlessly blend into long, textured layers. For a universally flattering look, try a bang that’s shorter at the centermost part, and gradually gets longer toward the temples. Not ready to commit to full-on fringe? Try a clip-in pair to test drive the look before taking the leap of faith.
Curly girls, rejoice – textured fringe is in! While textured fringe is a sexy way to embrace your natural hair and add an instant “cool girl” element to your look, it’s important that you talk to your stylist here at McAllister, voted one of Miami’s “Best Curly Haircut Salons,” about wearing your bangs naturally before making the cut so he or she can manipulate strands in a way that will be flattering for your face shape. For curly girls especially, this can mean not cutting hair like an actual bang section at all.
Short hair is having a major moment in 2016, with a cheekbone-grazing crop weighing in as the “It Girl” cut of the season. The versatile style can be worn on a multitude of textures. A blunt bob styled sleek and stick straight reads modern and high-style, while a natural wavy texture offers a nod to the romantic, beachy styles seen gracing the Spring/Summer 2016 runways. The key to crushing this cut is making sure ends are in tip top shape. Keep strands healthy with a routine trim (every eight weeks is recommended) and a weekly deep conditioning mask. We recommend KEVIN.MURPHY HYDRATE-ME.MASQUE (available in-salon), which contains Kakadu Plum, Seaweed and vitamin-charged treatment capsules, which explode on contact to deliver hydration and moisture. To use, simply apply treatment to freshly washed hair, massage into hair below the ear, leave for 5-10 minutes and rinse thoroughly. Or if you prefer to leave the treatments to the pros, book a customized hair conditioning treatment with one of our New Talents in the StyleLab (also recently voted Miami Beach’s best blow dry bar experience).
The Polished Lob
While the lob is no newcomer to the style scene, this year’s variety offers a completely new take on a classic cut. For spring, textured, tousled waves are taking a hike, making way for an upgraded style, which can only be described as polished, sleek and super sexy. The new lob, defined by its long layers and blunt edges, offers all the sexiness of traditional long hair with an added modern, cool-girl twist. The key to killing the polished lob is maintaining high-shine strands. After styling, lightly mist locks with a finishing spray, like Kevin Murphy’s Shimmer Shine (available in-salon), to instantly enhance shine, and illuminate your hair color.
