Spring Beauty Trends

 

This Spring’s hair and beauty trends are all about fresh, fun, relaxed looks.  At the Anushka Spa and Salon we are loving the iconic “It Girl Chop” with heavy bangs has been seen on all the major runways across the world. This textured chin-length cut plays up to the hair’s natural wave, making it look effortless. Perfect for the Palm Beach heat, the statement chop of the season, “The Bob”, is a classic do that allows for an incredible amount of versatility — rock it with texture, a wave, slicked back or bone straight. Also, the “Contouring Lob” rests just above the shoulders and is a center-parted angled cut that “ditches the layers” and shapes the cheekbones with its flattering frame.

For long hair lovers, try long extensions, cut straight across for the natural, hippie girl look. Give yourself the look of Palm Beach sun kissed skin with out risking sun damage. Bring attention to your eyes with exaggerated lashes through lash extensions and warm eye shadows. Our Anushka Lash-Guru, Ellie Malmin can give you envious lashes. As seen on Chanel’s runway, a “tropical eye” look with long lashes and a pink blush high on the cheekbone is a perfect everyday look. Don’t be afraid to play with your pallet this season!

Whatever your look just have fun with it and turn heads at this season’s galas with intricate braids, twisted up dos, and beach wave blowouts.  Hair wraps, bows, and ornate headbands are the perfect hair accessory to make your look absolutely flawless this Spring.

Beat The Heat Beauty

At Anushka, nestled in the heart of the Palm Beaches, it’s not just hot in the summer months: it’s sweltering. And let’s “face” it, beauty takes a back seat to soaring temperatures, unrelenting humidity and the sun’s beating rays. But, the Anushka experts, who have over 40 years in the beauty biz, have the answers to keeping your cool summer look alive and well. In fact, many of the tips we heard encouraged our beach babes to work with the heat instead of against it. Check out our top tips from our own experts.

“To preserve your beautiful color, before swimming in a chlorinated pool, rinse with cool water. Believe it or not, hair will not be able to absorb chlorine when it is first wet!” says Anushka’s Shawn Butner, Master Colorist, who is also an expert artist in Balayage Color Treatment. To tame your tresses, opt for a Keratin Blowout ($199 and up), a less intense “smoothing” option which helps for those who want a “little help” in the summer months to ward off the inevitable humidity.

The natural elements of Summer: Sun, wind and surf, dehydrate hair so visit your stylist for a restorative conditioning treatment (we recommend Kerastase, $38) or opt for a rich formula at your beauty supply store. To keep the “beach wave” look alive, try a texturizing spray, like Bumble & Bumble’s Surf Spray ($26), which is a favorite of our Master Stylist, Celete Salas, who’s styling techniques are so in demand, her clients to fly her halfway across the world for a cut and blowout!

For the face, we asked Makeup Artist, Aesthetician and Lashologist, Ellie Malmin, for her go-to summer beauty tips. “Make summer beauty a breeze by choosing the right makeup and treatments that last long into late summer nights and give you the ultimate freedom.”

 Start with eyelash and brow extensions, which are naturally waterproof and look like your very own. This ultra low maintenance solution will make you say “so long” to your eye pencil by brightening the eyes from sun up to sundown, and last up to 3 weeks! ($250 and up for a full set). Add a brow or lash tint for and easy, semi-permanent look you won’t have to touch up for weeks!

Opt for face makeup that is ultra sheer and youthful to compliment your easy breezy summer look. For all day coverage, try an airbrush makeup solution that will withstand the heat and water. Finally, finish with a sheer plumping lip gloss for a perfect pout.

For nutrition and body, we went right to the guru herself, Anushka, who has been reshaping women and men from the inside out since 1974. Her ultimate juice is a must to look swimsuit sexy this summer.

“As far as beauty goes, we often neglect the most foundational part, which is what goes IN first! Start your day off right by powering up your vitamin, mineral and antioxidant intake by swishing down a super smoothie! Anushka recommend her Beauty Detox Smoothie. Start with 2 cups of water and add: 4-5 cups of baby spinach (fresh), 4-5 cups of arugula or kale, 3 medium celery stalks, 2 squirts lemon juice, 2 rings fresh pineapple, 1 medium banana, and 10-16 drops of stevia.

“Beauty is a reflection of inner health and wellbeing. It is harmony and balance: a delicate relationship between spiritual, emotional and physical aspects to bring your best features forward and express a healthy appearance and attitude.”, says Anushka.

Trend On The Mend: Modern Salon Tech Helps Women Reclaim Luscious Locks

Hair trends, like fashion, go in and out of style every season. There’s nothing like reinventing yourself from the crown down. And, if you’re really lucky, a trendy cut will last you a year or two. But a new year of styling is upon us and suddenly you’re reminiscing of the days of long, luxe locks that simply must accompany your spring wardrobe. Did you see the “Bardot Blondes” of DVF’s Spring 2015 Runway show? We were envying the bombshell look.

under cut imageTake for instance the “Lob” (long bob). This seriously cute and classy crop had women hitting the hi-lo trend in waves (think style mavens like Nicole Ritchie or Jenny McCarthy). Or, for instance, the ultra-daring, futuristic undercut. This fierce style, more of a side-shaved look, adorned the crowns of celebs like Miley Cyrus and Kelley Osbourne. While these two styles are not nearly alike, they both take months, or even years to grow out (anyone who’s had to grow out an undercut especially feels this pain). But with modern salon tech, the right stylists can expertly add luscious length and volume so real, even your best friend won’t know where 2014 ends and 2015 begins.

We’re of course referring to hair extensions, using real human hair. Anushka has been using Platinum Seamless extensions for years now, helping women achieve the volume, length and color they desire in just 1 salon visit. Platinum seamless extensions use a patented “undetectable” adhesive strips that bond to the hair and last up to 3 months. This non-damaging adhesive allows the delicate strips of real human hair to be applied and removed in moments. And with 52 colors available, our experts can perfectly match your unique shade and hair texture for a seamless transition.

Platinum Seamless extensions are available at the Anushka Salon with prices starting at $300. For a full breakdown on how these exquisite extensions can help you achieve your styling needs, schedule a consultation with one of our leading stylists.
