Spring's 3 Top Hair Color Trends
Though we're still in the thick of winter, we can't help but be entranced by warm weather's siren song and the imminent arrival of new spring hair color trends. In theory, there are a ton of shades to choose from, but in practice, this really means variations on blonde, red, black, and brunette. (And realistically, you have to take into account your skin tone before making a dramatic color change.) In terms of trends, ombre and balayage were two of last year's hair color bywords, and they're back for 2011, but with a fresh, toned-down take. And don't forget that your hair texture plays a role in hair color, too.
Whether you're going back to basics or flipping the switch on your natural shade, here's how to revamp your locks by adding blonde, brunette, or red in a fresh way.
Lighten Up: Want to go blonde for spring? Say goodbye to platinum locks and hello to luxurious gold.
The Tips: "Blondes are getting warmer overall, while still staying within lustrous metallic tones from 24k gold to rose gold—any kind of goldeny tone," says Natasha Khan of Lure Salon "We'll still have the ombré look but it won't be quite as extreme. We'll be warming up the roots a little more."
The Dark Arts: The weather may be warming up, but brown and black shades are staying cool this spring.
The Tips: "The palette for brunettes and black hair has been changing," says Yvonne Hager colorist and owner of Lure Salon. "We were focused on caramels and honeys, but now it's pale, milk chocolate shades, peanut buttery taupes, and violet-based brunettes. The cooler brunettes for spring means a lot of single-toned, solid darker shades that are healthy and full of shine. In terms of ombre and balayage highlights, the look is richer at the roots with a lot of shine, so you get more of a natural, grown-out look instead of the obviously delineated line of color."
Revved Up Red: From pop culture—think Mad Men, Florence and the Machine, and Rihanna—to the runway, warm red locks are here to stay.
The Tips: "When adding red through highlights, you want to focus on adding the undertone of that shade to create the highlight, which helps you choose the right color match and, ultimately, bring dimension to your overall look. For example, if your hair is a dark plum or cherry, the undertone is a pinky/red (which is what you'll want to draw out). If you are going for an overall color change, you should definitely sit down with a professional first. Together, pick a color that goes with your skin tone. Darker skin and darker hair can get away more with a plum/orange base. Lighter color skin-tones can try brighter reds and be more risky like Rihanna's new look. Fire-engine reds also tend to go better will fairer skin tones."
5 Spring 2011 Hairstyles We're Loving!
If the abundance of 2011 fashion trends already has you buzzing, then brace yourself for our round-up of 2011 hair trends, because it's about to get epic. We're not suggesting taking your tresses to any too-styled level, but nothing shakes things up like a new 'do, and you'll be hard pressed not to fall for the wearable élan of this season's offerings. We give a nod to short with the pixie's bad-ass cousin; say goodbye to the topknot as buns go low; and try something serious with a more severe side part. Plus, from an off-to-the-side swoop to thick, Jane Birkin-esque '70s fringe, bangs are definitely back. So, whether you're down to take some style risks or just want to effortlessly change things up, we've got your new look covered.
The Low Bun—Last year may have been the year of the top knot, but that's all about to change as buns make a shift to the nape. Pair the style with some sexy-glamorous sunnies for a relaxed-yet-elegant, warm-weather vibe.
Tip: Jeff O’neil of Creative Director for Lure Salon , recommends starting with a center part. Next, pull hair into a low ponytail, making sure to cover the ears. Then twist the ponytail into a loose knot. Remember, a too-tight style will look overly austere, so keep it loose for a touch of bohemian flair.
The New Side Part—We've been digging the extreme side part for a while, but now we're really crushing on them because of the versatility. The look works on both long and short hair and can go sleek and minimal or curly and wild.
The Tip: Sergio Ortega of Lure Salon, gives us the key to finding your perfect part: "Place a comb flat against the side of your head. The spot where your head leaves the comb is where the part should be placed. Pull hair into a sleek, low ponytail or secure curls with a few bobby-pins."
The Jane Birkin Bang—Though there's a decidedly '70s feel to this look, blunt bangs are very of-the-moment, as proven by Mulberry, Twinkle, and a slew of spring designer look-books.
The Tip: "Bangs should be heavy, slightly longer on the sides, and kept below the eyebrows. Layers are long and flowing, with a slight angle below the chin. Blow dry your bangs with a brush, then spray hairspray on a comb and comb through to make them look solid and thick."
The Punky Short Cut—Ready for a big change in 2011? Go short with the messy, punk-inspired cut that popped up on the spring runways—think Carmen Kass and Balenciaga. Keeping some length on top maintains femininity, while a bit of disheveled drama makes it a little rowdy.
The Tip: "The most versatile way to get this look is an undercut with length on top”. "To style, use a texturizing spray when wet, followed by a wax-based styling product once hair is dry."
The Swoop—We've mentioned this quick-change style before, and we predict it's going to big for 2011. Go au naturel, like at Rodarte's spring show, or super sleek à la Louis Vuitton.
The Tip: Loosely pin your bangs to the side, either with bobby-pins or a barrette. Use a dry shampoo to add texture or gel for hold and shine.

PROM FOR PENNIES
Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth announced today a prom promotion sale to be held March 25,2011, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Goodwill superstore located at 2100 Altamesa Blvd. (at Crowley Road). The prom promotion features formal wear and prom dresses specifically selected for high school girls.
All dresses are in good condition, as most have only been worn once prior to their donation to Goodwill. Formal wear will be sold for pennies on the dollar, with most dresses ranging from $15- $25.
In order to offer a large selection of dresses for the event, Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth recently held a “Pack the Rack” challenge at Texas Christian University and Texas Wesleyan University encouraging students to donate formal wear.
“We have had an overwhelming response to our “Pack the Rack” challenge and are excited to change the meaning of prom for local high school students,” said Kristen Bostick, Marketing Communications Coordinator of Goodwill Industries of Fort Worth. “Prom was one of my best high school memories, all students should have the opportunity to experience prom without the financial burden of an expensive dress.”
The sale will feature more than low prices; the superstore will offer refreshments and giveaways throughout the sale. One lucky high school girl will have the chance to win a prom beauty package, including complimentary hair and make-up services, to be used the night of her prom.
Goodwill Industries invites the community to join in packing the rack, and will be accepting donations of formal wear at all donation locations. “This is a perfect time to get my dresses out of the closet and make prom affordable for someone else” said Madison Donahue, TCU student donator.
