hair trends

After four weeks of fashion shows in four different cities, hair trends re-emerged from past decades. Fashion is recyclable, thus our love of classic vintage items; so when hair and makeup trends are seen again we embrace them with ferocity.

The trends that are repeating themselves this year are beautiful. flattering, and will live on for ages. Some are simple, some more complex, but all are applicable to any person.

(Versace)

(Diane von Furstenberg)

rock and roll waves

The "grunge" look of the nineties was a major presence on the runways of huge fashion houses, such as Versace, Diane von Furstenberg, and Roberto Cavalli. Center parts with tousled waves were showcased on many catwalks. To achieve an even more "rock n' roll" look, some designers such as Philip Lim, applied an almost matte finish.

This style seems simple enough to perform, but there are a few steps that go into the look to perfect it. According to Harper's Bazaar, "at Versace, hair pro Guido applied volumizing foam to damp hair and rough-dried with his fingers, scrunching up the ends before twisting strands into a bun and misting with aerosol hair powder for texture. After hair had set, he released the bun and sprayed with more powder for a "cool-girl" look that was sexy and "uncomplicated."

If you would like to accomplish this look with salon-worthy effect, we recommend using the Shuga Directional Volumizing Mousse at the start, as Guido did, and then finishing with the Benniefactor B More Building Powder or Benniefactor B Confident Styling Spray for the texture and extra volume. This would be an excellent style to have your favorite GENEVA stylist try out at our spring Trend Event.

(Bottega Veneta)

(Vera Wang)

undone updos

The "throw together and go" look is a style every woman would love to perfect to save time in their day. Thankfully, this look was a big hit on many runways this season.

At shows such as Donna Karan, Vera Wang, and Chloe, models were featured with hair that seemed to be thrown together in seconds -- left intentionally loose for a casually cool look. A mix between chignons and ponytails, these looped loose looks were a great alternative to traditional updos.

At Chloe, models were featured with a side parted loose low ponytail which was looped back throw the holder to create a low slung bun. At Vera Wang, models appeared to have tousled textured hair which was pinned up and around to create a large loose updo.

All of the undone updo looks can be created with a few simple steps and some essential products. The ideal light hairspray or texturizing spray can perfect these looks and hold throughout the long day. And if a few strands do fall, it only becomes more stylish.

(Ralph Lauren)

(Marni)

knotted at the nape

Looks gathered at the nape of the neck were huge this season, but none more so than the knotted bun. Showcased at Ralph Lauren, Marni, Chanel, Gucci, and more, the low knot was a common sight on the catwalks.

Some were finished cleanly, making a very chic and put-together style. The Ralph Lauren hair pro went with his look because "this look goes along with what I typically think we create in New York in that it's very American and wearable..."

At Marni and Paul Smith, the knotted chignons were styled loosely, sometimes with pieces still hanging free. Seen as a blend between the two trends of undone updos and knotted at the nape, the style is simple and flattering.

To master your own knotted bun is slightly more difficult than the undone updos because you are potentially working with more pieces and products. Where the undone updos were the "throw together and go" style, the knotted at the nape chignons are sleeker and more polished.

Some of the products recommended to achieve your own knot would be an excellent shine mist, such as the Shuga Dressy Mist, or the B Excellent Oil Treatment to give your hair the smoothness necessary before it is pulled up and twisted around.

(Louis Vuitton)

(Moschino)

sixties retro

Sixties retro volume and beehives were seen in collections in all four fashion capitals. Influencing both the clothes and the beauty looks, a vintage vibe was observed on many different catwalks. Marc Jacobs went with a sixties look in both his personal collection and at Louis Vuitton. Moschino also adopted a half beehive type style and Chloe displayed deep side partings and teasing at the crown.

Whether you are going for a fully pinned up beehive, a half updo, or something else, the most important part of this look is VOLUME. Teasing is key to the outcome.

To achieve the perfect look without damaging your hair with extreme back-combing, the proper products must be applied. You would be amazed at the amount of volume you can get from merely applying B More Building Powder and working into the crown of your head, no teasing required. A strong hold hairspray such as B Proud is also a good choice. And finally, applying Shuga Directional Volumizing Mousse before drying your hair should help immensely.

  

makeup trends

The makeup trends we loved from the shows this year are beautiful, applicable to all, and fairly simple additions to your ordinary makeup routine.

In all four fashion capitals, the eyes were the focus of many shows. We observed a grungy lower liner, a pop of color on the lower lash line, and large fluttery lashes. We also saw minimalism maximized and shades of brown blended for a natural look.

(Diane von Furstenberg)

(Stella McCartney)

lower lash focus

The nineties were a major inspiration on this season's runways. From the fashion to the beauty, many designers displayed multiple nineties trends. To go along with the grungy rock and roll waves, Diane von Furstenberg, Versace, and others created a grungy, smudged lower lash line to match. On the flip side, at Stella McCartney a bright lower liner was applied to bring the focus there and make the eyes pop.

A more modern take on the grunge look, the lower lash focus is a swift change from past eyeliner trends such as the cat eye. Smudged correctly, the trend will look sophisticated and easy; smudged incorrectly and it could look disastrous. It should not be paired with a smoky lid or smudged liner on the top lash line because the outcome could very likely turn into raccoon eyes.

If you chose to go with a bright color on the lower lash line like Stella McCartney displayed, the color you choose is key. Depending on the color of your eyes, the color on your lower lash line will bring out certain shades that you might desire. It also is a very clean and polished look. The liner is not meant to be smudged, just cleanly applied to the lower lash line to add a pop of color.

(Roberto Cavalli)

(Versace)

shades of brown

Different shades of brown were shown on all parts of the face at many shows this season. Brown was used to contour the eyes and face at shows such as Roberto Cavalli, Alexander Wang, and Diane von Furstenberg. Caramel tones were shadowed eyes at House of Holland and Sass & Bide. Bronzes were on display at Gucci and Versace.

At shows such as Diane von Furstenberg, the browns were used to create the grunge look that was also part of the lower lash line trend. At Gucci, the bronze eyes were offset with long fluttery lashes.

Browns are popular colors on most people and can translate well into clean spring or warm summer looks. A bronze highlight on the cheeks can prequel and lead into the color acquired from the summer sun. Youngblood offers a couple of eyeshadow quads that are appropriate for this trend, such as Shanghai Nights and Timeless. They also carry wonderful mineral radiance options that can give your cheeks a bronze highlight.

(Gucci)

(Armani)

fluttery lashes

Long, beautiful eyelashes. Always in season, always gorgeous, always a big hit. This season, long lashes were a focus on many models faces, including at Gucci, Armani, Jean Paul Gaultier, and Moschino. To deviate from the grungier nineties focus at some shows, beautifully displayed eyes with long lashes were seen at some of the most major fashion houses.

Even though the lashes on the runway were openly faux, long luscious lashes can be achieved without any false ones added on. With the right mascara, your lashes can remain healthy longer than when a cheap alternative is applied. When your liner on top is applied correctly, the lashes can appear longer and thicker.

And, of course, there are lash growing serums that will make your lashes longer and fuller within a few weeks. Some serums have countereffects that can detract from there value; however we sell a serum called Revitalash that is Opthamologist reviewed, Dermatologist reviewed, non-irritating, hypoallergenic, and clinically tested. And it works! The girls of GENEVA that used it were extremely pleased with the results.

(Balmain)

(Ralph Lauren)

enhanced minimalism

A fresh, clean look was the backdrop at mulitple shows this season. Glowing, flawless skin was shown at Ralph Lauren, Valentino, Balmain, and others. The look wasn't about the lack of makeup used, it was about the right products used to create a natural glowing look.

At Dolce & Gabbana, makeup artist Pat McGrath created a "Sicilian Summer" look with liquid foundation, concealer, and three different shades of blush. At Balmain, skin was "prepped to perfection, whilst a little clever contouring, a subtle curl of the lashes or a flush of pink on the cheeks gave the look an added dimension".

Good skincare is always recommended to create any sort of clean makeup look. A light reflecting primer worn underneath makeup and a highlighter dabbed on the high points of your face are also key tools to create this look. Youngblood offers a mineral primer that would work as the priming substance used before the makeup is applied, and the highlighting pencil and lunar dust can be used to highlight the different high points of the face.

Continuing Education: Benniefactor Living Lab and Benniefactor Cut Trends 2012

Posted 7:23 PM by

benniefactor living lab

The GENEVA girls traveled down to Louisville, KY this past August and participated in a full day of training at Bennie's studio. The entire Bennie team was on tap to instruct on everything from how to run an efficient front desk to styling lessons direct from Bennie. 

Bennie opened up his salon to other salon owners and stylists to view his studio in action. He is one of the only salon owners to do this...ever. At the front desk, Vanessa was able to pick up some tips on booking clients efficiently that she brought back and applied to GENEVA.

The stylists were able to sit through a great lecture on the benefits of proper marketing and personal branding. The Bennie team highlighted how important customer service and a professional image is in the beauty industry. They also stressed how crucial it is to keep up with the latest trends and always working on professional growth.

In the styling lesson, stylists were able to sit and watch as the Bennie team, including the man himself, demonstrated cuts, color applications, and different styling techniques.

 

benniefactor cut trends 2012

Amilee was able to attend a cut trends class hosted by Benniefactor at The Space in Indianapolis in September. The class focused on creating the perfect silhouette using new razoring and layering techniques.

The techniques Amilee saw demonstrated would work on a variety of different lengths and are applicable to all hair types. The new layering techniques involved layer placement to enhance profile views by creating that unique person's perfect silhouette.

Amilee particularly enjoyed this class because "it was extrememly educational and gave me a lot of fresh ideas that I will be able to apply on nearly my entire clientele".

to die for: Backwoods Belle accessories

Posted 10:34 AM by

As a small business owner, I am always glad to support other entrepreneurs and small businesses. Indiana and the Indianapolis region have recently made some great additions to the city as far as individually owned businesses go. Irvington in particular is overflowing with locally owned stores and restaurants. One of the local stores I enjoy, Homespun, is only a few doors down from the salon. They sell homemade and locally crafted objects of every shape and size.

One of my favorite purchases from there was a headband from the Backwoods Belle line. One of their former employees makes these hair accessories at home and sells them at art fairs, in Homespun, and on Etsy. Her hair accessories feature beautiful silk flowers of every color, and come on headbands, hairpins, and clips. She also sells homemade soy candles and infant headbands.

I have purchased these hair accessories for my nieces and they loved them! They are a great gift for every lady of every age and go with every personal style choice. You can custom order them from the designer with any color combination you desire.

*TRIVIA CONTEST*

As a prize, we would like to give away a casual hairstyle appointment with a Backwoods Belle accessory accompaniment. Answer this question from the September newsletter:

The Streetscape Project is becoming more exciting with the addition of the Irvington Street Art Project! How many designs are going to be chosen to be displayed on the traffic signal boxes?

Leave a comment here with the answer or visit our Facebook page and give us your answer there! The winners will be announced in the October newsletter.

GOOD LUCK!

Irvington Public Art Project

Posted 9:12 AM by

Irvington Terrace, in conjunction with the City of Indianapolis and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, is hosting a competition to paint the seven traffic signal boxes along Washington Street from Emerson to Edmondson. This sort of contest has been adopted all over the United States as a way to tie together tasteful street art and the neighborhood it is displayed in. Artists from the eastside will have an opportunity to have their vision put on display along Washington Street for everyone passing by to enjoy! Some examples from other contests include:


 

(Missoula, Montana)



(Coachella Valley: Indio, California)

(Tampa, Florida)

A jury will select the seven designs to be displayed. Each winning artist will receive $150 and all of the paint and materials will be provided! At the Irivngton Halloween Festival on October 27th, each design will be on display for people to vote for their favorite one. The winner of that contest will earn an additional $100! Designs must be submitted by October 1st so if you are an artist, start brainstorming!

We're so excited! Can not wait to see all of the fantastic ideas and streetscape updates!

Continuing Education: Dimensional Color and Men's Cuts

Posted 2:42 PM by

Brocato Dimensional Color Class
Amilee attended the Brocato Dimensional Color Class at The Space: Indianapolis in early August. At the class, the instructor went over some new trends and thoughts on color placement to highlight special features and specific face shapes.

She particularly enjoyed the instruction involving new foiling and block coloring placement. The new color placement approach involved adding in color strategically to enhance the client's natural features and make the color "pop". During the hands-on segment of the workshop, Amilee was able to experiment with the new technique. She found it highly complementary to almost any hairstyle and would enhance many seasonal hair adjustments.

 

Men's Trend Cutting Class 

Holly and Amilee attended a men's trend cutting class presented by Eufora at The Space: Indianapolis. In the class they were shown several classic men's cuts, as well as some new long hairstyles for men. One of the highlights of the class was when the educator demonstrated a texturizing technique using a straight razor on one of the models.

 

Amilee was so impressed by the straight razor demonstration that after the class she bought her own. She thought that it was a great texturizing technique for most hair types and could be easily styled at home afterwards.

Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Posted 1:03 AM by

Has anyone else ever tried to plan a "Free Day of Fun" around Indianapolis? You know -- a visit to the IMA, a walk on the canal, a tasting at Sun King, bike ride on the Monon Trail, climbing to the top of the Soldiers and Sailors Monument, etc... It seems like it could fill an entire day.

Well, I have an idea of something to add to your list!  Here at GENEVA we invite YOU to host an event called a Studio Session. Basically, your favorite GENEVA stylist takes care of you and your friends for an evening (or an afternoon) of hair or makeup fun. I know that I have left GENEVA wishing I was able to go home and recreate the same look I left with... however, I am consistently falling short! Well, the girls want to give you some helpful hints. We would love for people to create salon-worthy looks at home, easily and with very little practice necessary.

The greatest things about Studio Sessions:

1. They are COMPLETELY free.

2. We provide the snacks and beverages for you, including wine, coffee, and delicious treats.

3. If you come to the event and book a future appointment, it will be 50% off!

4. AND there is a special secret surprise for everyone who attends (which I promise you, is worth coming for!)

There is literally no downside! One of Katherine's clients hosted one the other night and they had a FANTASTIC time, the stylists and the clients! Seriously, try to get a group of friends together and come in for a great time. Afterwards, visit the new brewery down the way, Black Acre, or grab a slice of pizza at Jockamo's! Your friends will thank you for your great idea and all you will have done is gotten them all there, no other effort necessary.

Seems almost too simple, right?
