Get the Look: Paola Hernandez SS14 Runway Show Hair with Redken

Often times, we see looks on the runway that just don't translate into real life wear for the average woman. That's no the case with the beautiful hairstyles created by Jenny Balding for the Paola Hernandez Spring/Summer 2014 Collection presentation.

I'm A Red Head Thanks to K. Logan Salon!

I very seldom go to a salon to get my hair done, but I was in desperate need of a hair cut {I was suffering from a severe case of pyramid head-my curly girls know of what I speak} AND out of the blue, my hubby voiced an interest in seeing me as a red head. I've been infatuated with red hair since I was a little girl {my mother used to color her hair red and I remember going to the salon with her when she got it done}, and I'd been trying to achieve the perfect shade of red on my own since I was about 13 {I started with Herbal Essence semi permanent colors}, but have never been able to do it on my own. When we got married, my sweet man told me he liked my hair just the way it was, so there was no need for me to change anything. The itch to try something new has been underneath the surface though, so when he pointed out a shade that he thought would be pretty on me, he set the wheels in motion. Then I was contacted about reviewing a new salon in Atlanta called K. Logan Hair Salon.  The timing of the offer couldn't have been any better! So after I made sure the stylist had experience with natural hair {it's very important to know your hair type and make sure that you and your stylist know what you're getting into}, I made an appointment for a cut and color.

Tracey Cunningham and Redken Color Your Summer

I have been infatuated with red hair since I was very little. I believe I was around 13 or 14 years old when my mother allowed me to use my first semi permanent hair rinse and for years following that I continued to experiment with different products to achieve the perfect shade of red for me. I dabbled in highlights and a little bit of blonde from time to time, but red was always my main objective; my hair was never entirely in it's natural hue until I was pregnant with Lo. That was about 5 years ago, and I haven't colored my hair in over 6 years (the hubby likes my hair exactly the way that it grows out of my head, so I'm okay with keeping it that way...for now). My hair is the same shade as my eyes-the darkest brown it can be, so dark it appears to be black until the sun hits it, allowing you to see its true richness. I have 2 gray hairs on my head (and one gray eyelash and a few grays in my eyebrows as well) and I sport them proudly (right now I view them as a badge of honor and as something that I have earned, though I do pluck the grays in my brow).

I still am fascinated by red hair and hair color in general, especially as I see the great advances in products, techniques, and shades lately. As is the case with most trends in fashion, the warm weather of the summer signals the time turn up the heat, even in hair color! This season, the most popular hair colors are golden brunettes, vibrant redheads and platinum blondes.  Moving away from the cooler brunette and red tones of last season, Tracey Cunningham, Celebrity Colorist and Redken Creative Consultant for Color has the latest in Spring/Summer hair color trends and professional haircolor products to achieve these trends and get the hottest looks for the season.

To make these Spring/Summer haircolor trends accessible, Redken is launching the newChromatics prismatic permanent haircolor that will result in 2X fortified hair.  

This Zero Ammonia, Zero Odor formula provides 100% coverage, multi-dimensional, 4D color results and unlimited color possibilities.

Getting It Straight with Redken and Pureology

I love my curls and 90% of the time, my hair is in a mass of ringlets. But sometimes I long for the length and sleekness I get when my hair is straight (and I swear I look 10 pounds thinner when my hair is tamed). So as much as I experiment with products to take care of and make the most out of my curls, I'm also forever on the hunt to find the perfect combination of products and methods to maintain my hair when I wear it straight.
