#TuesdayTips: Style Inspiration from Fashion Week

Fashion Week is here and you know what that means…Spring is coming! Here’s a preview straight from the runway of what to expect for 2014 hairstyles. Achieve any of these looks with a few recommendations from Folica to you:)

undone look 2014

Folica Recommends: The 3-pack Mia Bun Ease for the bun and Biosilk’s Silk Pomade for the messy look

structure updos 2014

Folica Recommends: Lots of Marilyn Bobby Pins, a bit of Rene Furterer Gel Stylisant and Conair’s Up-do Kit for a french twist

low ponytails 2014

Folica Recommends: Accesorize this look with France Luxe Cuff Ponytail Holders and Mizani Anti-Humidity Spritz to tame flyaways

hail to the crown 2014

Folica Recommends: Feeling bold? Bedazzle your crown by weaving Karina Flower Combs into the braid

the pouf 2014

Folica Recommends: Pouff it up with got2b Volumizing Powder

the side part 2014

Folica Recommends: For a well-defined part use Cricket Carbon Rattail Comb and finish the sleek look with Cricket’s Smoothing Brush & the Kerasase Elixir Gloss

New York Fashion Week: All about color

It’s that time of year again – Fashion Week in NYC. Even though the designers are showing for Spring 2012, it feels positively like Fall today (temps are in the 50′s!).

There is a ton of hair-spiration on the runways, per usual. The trend that I am loving is creative use of color. Not just for the clothes (lots of bold jewel-tones and pastels) but in the hair!

A few highlights, if you will:

Thakoon:

Marchesa:

Narcisco Rodriguez (these models are also demonstrating another trend – the “wet look”. Slicked back hair is everywhere, and its easy to do yourself. Use a generous amount of mousse or gel to get this look at home):

Leave it to the ladies of NYC to take a runway trend and make it perfect for every day. These three ladies are seriously killing it. They’ve taken the (now ubiquitous?) ombre trend and added a whole new level of amazing – delicate splashes of color. I really want to know what that brunette did to get that super-subtle purple tint in her hair because I want to be a copy-cat.

If you’re looking to play with color, Folica.com has you covered with our assortment of Hair Color products. Try Jerome Russell B Wild Color Spray for something completely temporary and super bright. Similarly, Splat Coloring Kits have the most vibrant hues around – a better option if you want something semi-permanent (or try Splat Extensions).

Great Hair Day Contest Winner!

Did you enter Folica.com and Allure.com‘s Great Hair Day Contest last month? There were over 1,700 entries and thousands over votes, but only one winner—Tonya! She was in New York City this week with a couple of friends to claim her prize. She won an Allure-inspired makeover from celebrity stylist Tommy Buckett, a tour of Allure‘s headquarters, $500 worth of products from Folica.com, and airfare/accommodation to NYC for 3 days and 2 nights! Lucky girl! Check out her gorgeous blonde mane here in her before photo:

Tonya’s hair is already amazing (she did win the Great Hair Day contest after all), so Tommy kept it long and blonde, adding some layers and shape to give more oomph.

Tommy showed Tonya a few ways to style her new cut. He loves the Sedu Revolution Clipless Curling Iron to make these soft waves:

He used Fudge Dry Shampoo to add some texture and Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Working Hair Spray for hold on this loose updo and pretty fishtail braid.

I’d say these ladies are having a great hair day. What knockouts! Congrats, Tonya!

Great Hair Day

A fabulous Great Hair Day story and the winner of Folica’s GHD contest!

Andrea Ochoa, 14 Winter Springs, FL

I live in Florida which can be a real big problem when it comes to styling my hair. I did some research and found the Sedu Pro Ionic Ceramic Tourmaline Flat Iron. I bought it right away when I saw all the wonderful reviews and that it was featured in many magazines. I always try different styles with my Sedu: I flip out my hair, flip it in, straighten it … One day I curled my hair with the Sedu and it looked fabulous. (My hair always looks fabulous with my Sedu!) I sprayed on a little bit of hairspray and they were amazing the whole entire day. I love Folica! It’s a wonderful website that gives many detailed information about whatever you are looking to buy.
