What’s Next for Your Nails, Miami Beach peeps!

Nails are the perfect canvas for self-expression. They can feel like the perfect finishing touch to an outfit, a simple way to extend your personal style without going overboard on accessories. So what’s “in” and what’s “out” for 2021? We’ve rounded up our top three predictions to keep you current on the chicest trends in nails.

Prediction: Moody Metallics

The chrome craze is on the rise and here to stay. Easily adding an element of dimension to any nail art design, McAllister’s nail techs are experimenting with new ways to repurpose these multi-dimensional pigments to create something truly unique. One of our favorite trends for Spring is metallic contouring.

Much like contouring on the face, our artists are taking to this technique to create similar optical illusions of the nail for added shape and dimension – think: uplift through light, narrowing via dark, and inside linings for depth. Not ready to go full-on contoured tips? Dip your toes into the trend by opting for a simple, sparkling rim around the nail’s edge for a dainty, subdued take on the trend.

While we love playing with pigment to trick the mind, we never underestimate the power of the more traditional monochromatic look. Single-hued, colorful chrome digits make a serious statement in their own right in a more understated way.  Check out both of these trends at McAllister

Prediction: Revival of the Almond

If you thought picking your polish was the toughest manicure decision you’ll have to make… think again, beautiful! Nail shape sets the tone for the entire look to follow. While square tips and naturally rounded nails were a hit in 2016, it looks like their popularity is waning for the new year.

As sported by a slew of trendsetting celebs including the omnipresent Kylie Jenner, almond-shaped nails (a European mainstay) are making a resurgence for 2021. The style, which tapers tips to a slight point at the end of an otherwise elongated, natural nail, is regarded as the chicest, most glamorous of the shapes, known to slenderize fingers to best show off a handful of your finest jewelry.

Prediction: Rise of the SNS Manicure

Touted as the ultimate manicure hack for longer-lasting color, SNS (also referred to as dip powder) crushes its gel mani counterpart in the longevity of wear department. During the SNS manicure process, your nail tech paints a clear coat on each nail, dips it into a tinted powder and sets it, resulting in nails with serious staying power (two to four weeks!) without the permanence or damage of acrylics.

The treatment does not require the use of controversial UV lamps to set, and is formulated without the use of harmful chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene and DBP. The removal process is quick and easy (simply soak nails in acetone and slip off) and the SNS formulas are fortified with Calcium, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, D3 & B5, meaning that not only will the treatment not harm your nails, it could actually leave them longer, stronger and ready for round two!

Trendy Tones Talk from Our Hair Salon

Trendy Tones Talk from Our Hair Salon

It’s only March, but 2017’s latest hair color trends have already presented themselves in full force. This year is all about warmth and comfort – something we can definitely get behind – with buttery blondes, interesting oranges and rich browns taking center stage.

Step Up Your Hair Game This Spring 2017

We’ve consulted our veteran color gurus right here at McAllister to breakdown what’s hot and what’s not for 2017:

1. Bronde Hair

Aptly named “2017’s BIGGEST hair color trend” by Instyle Magazine, “Bronde” is a happy medium between bombshell blonde and rich brunette that women can’t seem to resist. While the color is nothing new to the world of hair, it’s showing no signs of going anywhere anytime soon, with trendsetting celebs like Gigi Hadid breathing new life into the ”˜do.

The trend fuses brown and blonde hues to create a sun-kissed look that instantly warms up winter-worn skin, yet won’t look out of place come spring. Bronde is universally flattering for all women as your stylist can play with levels of warm and cool tones to find the best combination to suit your skin.

2. Blorange Color!

The funkier, edgier cousin to the “Bronde” hair-do, “Blorange” (blood and orange) is the latest color craze to sweep Instagram, making it the color mix to watch this season.

Offering a fun alternative to the more subdued warm peaches, rose golds and strawberry blondes hues popular in 2016, Blorange (recently referred to as a “sunset on your head” by Refinery29) offers a beautiful shade somewhere between blonde and ginger. Its reddish undertones make it especially complimentary on fair and golden skin.

3. Hair Eclipting

A term coined by Aveda’s global artistic director for hair color, Ian Michael Black, “eclipting” translates the art of makeup contouring to the hair, using strategic color placement for added definition and dimension. And according to NYLON, it’s going to be the next ombre!

To achieve the look, stylists first color the whole head a deep, darker base, prior to artfully placing lighter highlights in strategic sections to accentuate the shape of the hair, while simultaneously contouring the face. Looking to thin out the cheeks?

A darker hue drawn down the lengths of face-framing pieces will do the trick! Rather concentrate on making your eyes pop? Nothing a bit of darker fringe can’t fix. The possibilities are endless!
