Are you ready for some new energy in your life? Do you feel like you’re stuck in a rut? After the last year and a half, that’s easy to understand. We’ve all been through a lot, and we went through most of it without our hair looking the way we’d like it to! Nowadays, we’re enjoying a summer of lifted restrictions, so maybe it’s time to get a new ‘do and see how it changes things moving forward.
Getting a haircut, even in your typical style, is almost magical, isn’t it? You walk into a hair salon feeling a little grungy, but a shampoo and a few snips later you’re feeling like a million bucks. But maybe you’re ready for something bigger. Something bolder. Something to help you stand out from the crowd or even stand out from who you were yesterday! A fresh new look can show you another side of yourself. Celebrities do it all the time, but you don’t need to be a celebrity to book a visit with a stylist at one of the great hair salons in Lawton!
It’s always good to go into a salon session with a vision. It helps you and your stylist communicate! Here are some of the freshest hair trends we’ve got our eyes on at Salons de Beauté. If you see something you like, save it on your phone for when you book that service!
Cardi B: Cardi B is a rapper and songwriter famous for her outrageous lyrics and her outrageous style. Ms. B just bragged on Instagram, “every other day new wig new hair,” but you don’t have to change your look as often as she does. If you’re looking for wild hair inspiration for updos and color combinations, check out her Instagram! Just don’t check it out at work.
Scarlett Johansson: Scarlett Johansson’s hair seems to never be the same twice. Why should she stick to one style when she can do just about anything, short or long, dark or light? In Ms. Johansson’s latest movie, Black Widow, she goes from deep blood-red to white-blonde mid-picture with just her super-spy skills and a box of bleach from the drugstore, but we recommend booking a session with your stylist rather than DIY-ing such a radical change.
Maisie Williams: Maisie Williams played child assassin Arya Stark in the hit TV show Game of Thrones. Arya learned to change her face with magic, and maybe that inspired Ms. Williams to dye her hair aquamarine a few years ago. The bold blue had mermaid vibes only, perfect for summer! More recently she’s been spotted with rose-gold hair and those long roots we’re all rocking these days.
Cate Blanchett: You don’t have to be a kid to change your style to something a bit more radical! The Lord of the Rings actress was in her late 40s when she went with a cotton candy hue. The truth is, anyone can wear brighter, wilder colors, so don’t limit yourself when dreaming big! Age is no limit on what you can do with your style, as long as you have confidence.
Elle Fanning: While actress Elle Fanning might have had lots and lots of long blonde hair in her recent appearance as Catherine the Great in The Great, she rocks some more modern styles when she’s not on a movie set! The actress had a great rose-gold color with choppy layers a few years ago that would look great on just about anyone.
Lizzo: Singer and flautist Lizzo has sported some wild styles over the years. Most recently she’s been seen with emerald hair and a purple-magenta ombre with waves for days. Lizzo has had a lot to say about body positivity, and she has shown that extreme styles (and extreme styling!) look great at any size.
Kylie Jenner: Media personality, socialite, and world’s youngest self-made billionaire Kylie Jenner has had some amazing hairstyles over the years. The star of Keeping up with the Kardashians and skin-care entrepreneur recently went with an all-over fuchsia that pops. Don’t be afraid to consider all-over color! You don’t have to be a billionaire to afford it. There are a lot of shampoos out there that can help retain color better than ever, and color-depositing conditioners are great when you’re in between hair salon trips.
Katy Perry: We saved the best for last. What color hasn’t Katy Perry’s hair been? The singer/songwriter has traversed the rainbow when it comes to her hair (and her wardrobe!). She shows you can do just about anything with enough bleach and patience. If you’re looking for bold celebrity hairstyles, just searching for what Ms. Perry has done will give you a ton of ideas.
Speaking of how to get ideas: When you’re considering a radical color shift, you can look up celebrity hair trends, or you can do an “image search” for the color or style you’re considering. Searching for “medium length choppy cuts pink hair” or “blue ombre long hair” will give you results for days. Play around with it and do some window shopping before committing! If you save those results on your phone or tablet, you and your stylist can go through them during your session to make sure you both understand one another. That’s so important when you’re making such a big change.
The truth is, you don’t have to go all-over bright pink to make a big change in your hair. Even a conservative shift in hair color or tone or a fun streak of something a bit more Crayola can be equally fun and rewarding when you need something new in your life. When you’re ready, our stylists are waiting to help you achieve your hair dreams!
