30th January

Whether your going short for the first time, or looking for a new short style, short hair requires an expert’s hand and an expert’s eye to pull it off right. A shorter cut can be dramatic and spectacular, or it can be a boring one way trip to old-city. I sat down with Frank Hathaway, a short hair specialist and style director at David Frank Salon in Scottsdale, to ask him about his special approach to short cuts.

D: You’re a big fan of shorter hair styles on women. What’s the attraction for you?

Frank: Simply put, when you have longer hair, people tend to see the hair and not the person wearing it. You have hair. With short and mid length hair, you have a hair style. There’s a huge difference.Shorter shapes allow you to accentuate the face and head shape in … Read More »

In “The Counselor”, Cameron Diaz has a new look. I’m betting we get lots of requests for this stunning disconnected bob. The shape features a short section on one side that allows the hair to be pushed back or worn down. The long side gives the feeling of more hair. It’s a very versatile look because you can wear it down an d looks like a traditional bob. The darker color underneath adds emphasis to the disconnection. We love it.

Getting That Perfect Pixie Cut

 

The Pixie is my absolute favorite hairstyle on women. I love the confidence I see in a woman when she has short hair. A well done pixie maintains the feminine lines and accentuates eyes and cheekbones, the most important features on a woman.. What make a perfect pixie? Here are few a tips from our style director, Frank Hathaway, on getting a great cut you won’t be in a hurry to grow out.

It is most important that a pixie is very soft around the hairline and has no straight lines. Men’s cuts are very angular and straight around the side burn, ears and the back. A  pixie remains wispy and soft at the edges maintaining femininity.

Most women can wear a pixie. If you look good with your hair pulled back in a … Read More »

Balayage versus foil

Posted by David in Top Trends. Comments Off on Balayage versus foil

18th March

If you’re looking to brighten up your hair with some highlights, make sure you know the difference between the traditional foil highlighting technique and the increasingly popular balayage highlight technique. In big cities, balayage highlights are becoming just as popular as foil highlights. The majority of the colors I see in magazines lately were done with a painting technique as well. Balayage used to be considered a specialty technique, but celebrity hair stylists have made a demand for it by painting many movie star’s hair with sexy, natural-looking balayage highlights.

 

Balayage, which is also called hair painting, creates natural looking results because they are painted on the hair, and can be placed throughout the hair in a more natural, artistic pattern. Each application is unique. When using foils, you work in a very linear fashion, with the same amount of light … Read More »

The urban wave

24th July

The Urban Wave: The beachy wave is out, giving way to the urban wave— a loose curve in the hair that’s effortlessly cool and made to look like the did did it itself. The street-ready style only requires a rough blow dry, subtle curl with the iron, and raking through with the hands to create the right amount of undone-ness. To make it easy, try an iron without a clamp, it’s much faster and looks great.

 



Short hair versus long hair: Should I cut my hair short?

Should I cut my hair short?

This is a question that we hear every single day in the salon. The reason the question is  asked changes from guest to guest, but it’s definitely one that we answer on a regular basis. Personally, I rarely try to convince someone to go short. It’s a personal decision, and unless I’m so convinced that it’s the absolute best way to go, I leave it to the client. There are, however, some good guidelines for helping you make a decision.

1. I have heard a million times over the years that “once you get to a certain age, you must cut your hair short”. I never understood this, and I think we can all see that there are many amazing looking women well into maturity that have medium to long hair. So don’t fall for it. … Read More »
