Trend Report & Education News

We've noticed the newest trends and want to share them with you! A lot of the current looks for men include very short sides with a longer top. Some have hard parts to accentuate the look. Longer mens styles are very textured and lived in. The women's trend include the "lob" short for long bob. It can be worn wavy or straight and looks great with a solid color or soft Balayage highlights. We are noticing the Ombre is slowly transitioning to a softer color change or adding Balayage highlights in to break up the severity of the color change.

In June, all of the girls at Gloss took a local current trends mens barbering class. It focused on the extremely short current styles for men, including variations on the hard part that is emerging in todays mens fashion. This month, we all took a hand painting/Balayage class that introduced new applications to achieve current womens hair fashion trends. Every stylist at Gloss stays current to keep you looking fresh!

Curls + Cocktails

Curls + Cocktails is one of our styling classes in a series that Gloss Salon will be offering to our clients. This one is geared towards shorter looks, but can be applied to longer lengths. These intimate classes are designed to allow our clients to learn how to achieve their favorite professionally done looks at home.

 

Curls + Cocktails will begin with our educator, Tiffany Link, explaining two different looks styled with a curling iron. Next, Tiffany will give step-by-step instructions to achieve these looks. This class will be demonstration-based. This means not every guest will style the entire look on themselves, but will have the opportunity to experiment with the iron with guidance from the gloss team. We encourage you to choose one of the looks to master the look you prefer rather than both.

 

The goal of this class is to educate you on the best tools, products, and methods to achieve curly looks at home.  Please bring your own curling iron if you have one.
