Kitty Tierney, owner of Impressions in Mequon,
says voluminous hair, from natural waves to textured layers, is
still trending. Here she comments on cuts and colors too.
» “Beachy waves continue to dominate,” says
Tierney. Ends are polished.
» For color, Tierney says baby lights, color melt
and smudged roots are trending — and look exactly as they sound.
“(They’re) less ‘rooty’ than ombre, which evolved into the
‘sombre’ — a softer, more natural ombre,” she adds. “‘Bronde,’ a
warm, golden blonde with a golden brown base, looks great on
most skin tones. Most of these inspirations are from the look a
child gets after a summer in the sun.”
» Fun colors, from pops of fuchsia to blue or
purple, are also big, and not just for millennials, notes
Tierney. “(They’re) sometimes hidden as a surprise when the hair
is in a pony or (has) a change of part,” she says.
» Style-wise, Tierney points to middle parts, the
high pony, top knots and half up/half down looks as trendy. “The
‘lob’ or ‘chop’ is still popular, with perhaps a bit more
layering,” she says. Use shine-enhancing products or dry shampoo
to add texture.
“This season is all about metallics and golds,”
says makeup artist Jhousy Leon, who owns Blush in Mequon. Leon
breaks down the hottest makeup trends for spring/summer.
» Peek-a-boo eyeliner look: Apply a metallic
caviar stick on the upper eye rim, followed by thin black
eyeliner. Leon recommends Laura Mercier’s gold caviar stick.
» “Orchid pink shadow is also hot, and eyebrow
and cheek highlighter is a must,” she says.
» “Golden eye shadows must be followed by a nude
lipstick,” Leon says. “A little secret tip of mine is to find a
creamy lip liner in nude and apply it all over your lips. No
lipstick, just use a lip liner. This will last longer than a
lipstick or gloss.”
bronze primer is also hot for this season,” the makeup artist
continues. “Apply Laura Mercier’s radiance primer before your
foundation. It gives the skin that red carpet look. (Then) matte
bronzer with an orchid crème blush, which is best for
spring/summer. We love Kevyn Aucoin’s spring collection.”
