The new trending color Tiger Eye is ideal for you

The coloration of highlights and lowlights for dark and brown hair.

If your hair is dark brown the new trend Tiger Eye is for you; give it brightness with golden shades, browns or bright ochres so that your mane looks spectacular vibrant!

In the past you have had to settle for coloring techniques that were designed for people with lighter hair (like babylights or bronde,) not anymore; until now the ‘tiger eye’ illuminations have become the new addiction of dark-haired females that fill their posts in social networks with sensational blows of mane with sublime golden and brown reflections. A very beautiful trend.

Drugstore vs. salon hair products

The constant debate between drugstore hair products and professional hair salon products has a built many questions to the consumers. Are they worth the extra money? Do they provide better results? After doing a lot of research and studying the different products we have some answers.

What is the drugstore product, what does it contain and what effect does it have on the hair?

The hair products at drugstores are convenient because they are affordable, easy access, many variety and have a wide range of scents and colors that attract the consumer. But what are they really made of? They typically contain many chemical products that take away our natural hair oil and leads hair to eventually dry out. Although they contain some of the important ingredients that the professional hair products have, they have very little of them. Drug store products can leave your hair looking very silky but it does not feel silky or even mean the hair is actually healthy within for this matter, that for a while after using the product the product does not let the hair produce of those important oils that make the hair stay healthy.

Drugstore vs. salon hair products

Why are salon hair products worth the price paying for?

The reason why salon hair products tend to be pricier is because they are highly concentrated with high-grade ingredients. They tend to have tons of vitamins, minerals and oils that truly nourish your hair from inside out. They also consiste of less fillers than the typical drugstore hair product, that prevents the max build up and instead hydrates from within the hair. Because the shampoo is much more concentrated you use less product and they end up lasting longer so in the long run the price between drugstore product and salon product end up being the same.

You will end up spending the same amount of money on both products. The major difference between the products is the major benefits you get from using salon products because of the ingredients they are made with that are truly better for the health of your hair.

Drugstore vs. salon hair products

With that being said, here are some of the  hair products we offer at salon Armandeus and their benefits.

Biotin by Armandeus

What is Biotin?

Biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin (vitamin B7), formerly known as vitamin H or coenzyme R.

It is composed of a ureido (tetrahydroimidizalone) ring fused with a tetrahydrothiophene ring. A valeric acid substituent is attached to one of the carbon atoms of the tetrahydrothiophene ring. Biotin is a coenzyme for carboxylase enzymes, involved in the synthesis of fatty acids, isoleucine, and valine, and in gluconeogenesis.

biotin supplements support hair and nail growth, and so the vitamin is marketed for these indications.

Biotin is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. Biotin assists in various metabolic reactions involving the transfer of carbon dioxide. It may also be helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level

One of the most important trends for hair color is the “Contouring”. This is based on the very famous technique “Makeup contouring,” used by celebrities. This technique is making a fashion statement among the most known and famous hairstylist. For the more daring, the fantasy colors are still in style. Haircuts are boing used with a heavy base a right under the shoulders, still keeping the “Bob style,” but playing with the lengths. Asymmetrical layers, messy bang to soften the facial factions, for very natural “Beach waves.”

Spring and Summer trends 2016

Spring and Summer trends 2016

Hair cut trends for these seasons show naturalness with a great variety of options to satisfy the style and preference of each woman.

The haircuts for short hair are very similar to 2015 winter trends, the difference is that for this season the haircuts are very categorical. We mean super short and even bold headed.

The “Bob” is a classic of all styles, is slightly curved as in the 60’s with thick bangs.
For medium length hair, we recommend layers because it makes all kinds of hair look good such as straight and curly hair with a copper colors. For the long hair lovers the trend is classic haircut with the hair split in the middle or with bangs.

For the ones with curly or straight hair is better to go with layers to assure a great volume of hair.

Hair colors go from chocolate browns to natural blondes. A lot of women decide to go lighter taking advantage of sun reflection maybe with hazelnut tones or ash blondes or maybe with crazy colors that allows us to make radical changes. We will see blondes, light browns, blacks or red hairs. We also have fantasies colors between purples and pink or blue locks of hair.

The great star for this season is to have the hair in layers no matter the length because it really satisfies all kinds of women’s needs for a stylish and glamorous haircut.

In reference to updos, the trends are to make them with a messy style with rebel hair locks. For the lovers of neat and discipline hair updos we bet for a wet look, we just need to polish the hair and have it all back keeping it under control with hair gel and hair clips.

The braids are still in this season but the “boxer style” that are made from the root of the hair and are a sporty look.

Pony tails are made low with a soft style wrapped with a ribbon cloth, another option but less trendy is to wear a high tale with the hair brushed back and neat.

Regarding makeup, blue turquoise summer tones, light blue and blue for eye shadows are coming back for this season. It does not only apply for eye shadows but also for eyeliners. Black is still trending in eyeliners to make a strong look, for which it is very important choose a good product to use.

Very colored lips are still trending in every tone and texture, you can use matte or shinny depending on your eye makeup. The coolest tone is prune and the softer is nude.

In the skin the trend is to wear a nude look, with satin or transparent foundations, very well moisturized skins and beige tones makeup.
