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.

This new type of wicks comes inspired by nature, specifically a semi precious stone called tiger eye. This dark stone used for many centuries to protect its owner is crossed by golden, amber and brown stripes that give it a spectacular luminosity; the same effect that those colors will give your dark hair.

To have this effect of light to measure for your dark hair you must make you highlights in a caramel  color or gold,so that they stand out perfectly on your natural color. By the application of ultra-lightening tones or a very subtle controlled bleaching without exaggeration in the procedure and times of hair clarification.

A special detail in the application of this technique with which you will get a very natural effect without having to tweak your roots every now and then or frequently your strands should be with a separation of one or two centimeters of the root of the hair.

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.

Stem cells hair treatment

Stem cells have become the trendy word for skin care and hair care, because of the high benefits in anti aging. These type come from Swiss valleys, due to the high concentration of stem cells, it has been discovered that they can stay fresh for months after they have been recollected. These stem cells Attribute properties of vitality, regeneration, and longevity that when are applied to the hair it nourishes and regenerates the capillary fiber from the inside and the result can be seen from the first day.

With the help of these types of Stem cells the capillary fiber maintain its biological characteristics from the protein chain that form and delay the aging of the hair.


It can be used in any hair type, bleached, dyed, Japanese hair straightening, virgin hair, etc. It lasts from 3-5 months, depending on the hair care after the process.

But be careful, not all of the products offered are reliable. I recommend do to this procedure at a professional hair salon. In all Salon Armandeus locations we have certified products and the entire hairstylist team are trained and certified to do this pressured.

Hope this explains a little about our new hair treatment, and hope to see you guys in one of our locations.

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.

Fall and Winter Tendencies for 2015-2016

In these festival seasons and vacations we are found among many different colors and tendencies, about your hair here is what you could do to be in style.

Great Big Waves like used on the 70’s for the ones with a lot of volume (You could also cheat with extensions). There are 3 ways to get this hairstyle done. The simplest form is by wrapping your hair around rollers and using a blow dryer to heat the hair and give it shape, another option is with a big brush blow dry the humid hair while giving it the shape of the waves, and last by molding the hair around the flat iron even thou this might be the least recommended since the curls come out very defined.

The 70’s Bangs come disorganized to give it a natural and relaxed look.

The Long Bob Haircut has many seasons because of the comfort and how easy it is to wear it and besides that it look very natural and sexy.

Bronde hair trend it degrades from two colors in between blonde and brunette it’s name stands for brightness to the skin and hair.

People with a lot of volume use the 80’s curls or they want to find it by having very sharpen curls and messy if you want to innovate and take a risk into the hair trend in the season.

Autumn-Winter Men and Woman Style by Michael

Michael Mata Blog, Fashion Tips ,


As usual ARMANDEUS, in fashion’s vanguard, this Autumn/Winter, I recommend for men’s look a style of superior long hair layers, and very short hair sides, playing with different soft and fresh hair layers giving natural hair movements, taking into account that we don’t have any limits when creating this or any kind of hair cuts and hair styles, this one gives a lot of personality when it’s about showing classic or rebel fashion.

For women, I suggest a style of lots of dimension, volume, and movements, that resembles the look of years 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, with luminous and wild blondes and chocolate colors, giving freedom to the stylist when creating these styles, getting positive results when carrying this fashion style.
