Fiery shades of ombre hair are all over the runway and on the pages of
hottest fashion magazines this season. This is one trend you can get into,
and keep your hair conservative enough that you will not have to hide it in
a chignon at the office.
Short, chic hair can wear ombre in shaggy styles, with darker shades
around the roots and neckline, progressing to lighter shades around the
face. Your professional hair stylist can create unique Miami – sunset effect
on short hair. The use of a brush technique of sunset red around the
neckline and root areas will begin the look. They will finish with an
application with lighter highlights of golden red on the ends. The color
choice will depend on how bold or subtle you want your ombre look to be.
If your hair is medium length: Talk to your stylist about a blunt bob, in a
golden red ombre. The classic bob cut gets an edgy lift as the strands go
from bright copper to a deep warm golden blonde. This color combination
is ideal for lighter skin tones. For deeper skin tones: try a deep mahogany
to light red. If your hair is wavy or curly in texture consider a concave bob
with this color combination.
Long hair will obviously show more ombre progression. Ask your stylist to
start with a deep cherry brown to ginger: if you have deep, cool toned
skin. For lighter and warmer skin tones: consider a medium to light warm
auburn progression. It will give you a sunny, youthful look without going
If your workplace is more progressive and casual: you can have fun with a
fire red to orange ombre or a dramatic black cherry to red effect. For a
very edgy look, your stylist can create a jagged ombre by wielding a
smaller brush, and meticulously establishing a lines using color clips.
Ombre is a hair color trend that works for almost any hair type. If you wear
bangs, talk to your stylist about blending the color in and styling options
for your bangs. They can also recommend the right products to maintain
your new trendy hair.

Sometimes, you just want a change. Changing your hairstyle is a great way to feel like every day has something new and exciting about it—but perhaps you’re feeling unsure about what looks will pair well with your face shape. How bold can you go before you can’t pull it off anymore? Here are some tips on the best haircut for your face shape.
Bangs are great for diamond shaped faces. They help to soften your face shape. This face shape does well with medium to chin length hairstyles, with a variety of textures and styles to choose from. The main thing for diamond shaped faces is to avoid too many layers in your style, and to stay away from pixies and really short haircuts. This shorter hairstyles don’t balance well with this face shape.
Wavy long locks or fun, pixie cuts look great on a heart shaped face. Shoulder-length hair also works well, but the general goal for people with this face shape is to frame their face well. Long bangs or choppy layers are great. Long, layer-less styles are not.
Long hairstyles, short cuts that frame the face, or blunt cuts that end below shoulder length do well for square faces. Side partings are best, but feathery bangs are doable as well. Long bands simply help to soften the jawline better on square faces. Stay far away from pixie cuts though!
Round faces flourish when you choose haircuts that give the sense of lengthening the face. Long, medium, and chin-length styles go well with round faces. Blunt cuts, straight fringe, and short bobs are not ideal cuts for this shape. Go for wispy or tapered edges.
This face shape is the ideal face shape. If you see a style you love, try it! Your face shape is compatible with any and all kinds of hairstyles.
Braids have come a long way since those tight pigtails from childhood. They have actually evolved into a sleek and grown-up way to contain long hair in a neat and professional manner. Not only are they a diverse and convenient choice, they are also one of the oldest hairstyles documented in history. This week Red Market Salon follows the evolution of hair braiding from Africa, to Europe, and beyond. The roots of braiding have been traced to West Africa where it began as a symbolic art form to denote culture, status, and tribe. Bridal up-dos with braids were considered the most complex forms, complete with intricate patterns and hair weaving. As with many ancient cultures, elders pass on knowledge to younger generations, and braiding was no exception. It was a very social tradition, with styles and techniques taught through the ages.
Sometime later, the plait, or English braid, gained popularity in early Europe. Women of aristocracy wore elaborate, ornamented braids to signify their status, whereas working women used simpler braids to keep hair clean and contained. The plait is created by weaving three even sections of hair in and out of each other, beginning at the nape of the neck and descending down the back. This method is simple enough to try yourself and comfortable enough for all-day wear.
In early American history, Native Americans wore braids for its practical purpose of containing long hair. Over time, ornate braids became popular for religious rituals and war preparations, and were common in men and women alike.
By the late 1800s, the French braid was in fashion. At that time, it was considered a “new” style, but in actuality it was discovered by travelers to North Africa. The French braid consists of weaving three strands, like the plait, but unlike the traditional braid, this style begins at the crown of the head. It is considered more elegant than plaiting because it involves a more complex technique, resulting in a more sophisticated appearance. There are also variations, such as Dutch and fishtail braids, that are constructed in a similar manner but consist of weaving the hair sections under, instead of over, creating an inverse braid.
Today, braids retain their popularity among women (and some men) as a practical and elegant hairstyle. The most basic style of braid today, by far, is the English braid, with Swiss or other wrapped braids as variations. Top (crown-only) and side braids are also in fashion, as often seen worn by celebrities. Aside from their convenience and versatility, another plus is the flowing waves that result the next day.
Have fun trying out different braids on your own or with a friend. And for that special occasion, be sure to make an appointment with Red Market Salon for the ultimate styling experience.

This coloring technique emerged in Paris in the 1970s; the word “ balayage ,” pronounced bah-lee-AHZGE, is French for “sweep away,” a reference to the way in which the color is painted onto the hair.
Balayage color is painted in soft brush strokes across the surface of the hair, leaving you with natural-looking swipes of color that flow from thick to thin and play off the hair’s natural movement. Even better, balayage won’t leave you with any signs of demarcation, creating a softer and more manageable grow-out. Meet our hair stylist in Miami at Red Market Salon to learn more about the Balayage Technique.
Balayage made an early appearance at the exclusive Carita salon in Paris in the ‘70s. At the time it was known as ‘Balayage à Coton,’ named for the strips of cotton that are used to keep the colored hair separate from the untouched hair.
Balayage was truly revolutionary, created at a time when the industry standard was a frosting cap. The ‘80s brought a wave of foil highlights, but it wasn’t until the ‘90s that balayage became widely accepted by popular culture in the U.S.
