color me happy.

One of my favorite spring trends is color blocking. It's basically wearing big blocks of color right next to each other. It is not always easy as it sounds though. You don't want to go overboard and look like a big box of crayons.

If you want to keep the look more even, team colors together in the same family. Pair bright pink with vivid fuchsias or turquoise with royal blue. Keep orange and red together for a warmer tone. Also, if you want to keep it simple, go for a neutral toned shoe.

Or if you want a more bold approach, go all out because opposites attract! Contrast colors like purple with a fiery orange or lime green with a rosebud pink. Accessorize. Accessorize. Accessorize. Wear a shoe or handbag that contrasts well with the outfit!

Time for change

If you're ready for a change, get a fun and short yet feminine haircut! Whether going dramatic with a pixie or a bit more subtle with a short crop or bob, its time for a change. Spring is here, be bold and get a gorgeous textured or soft new cut!

Balyage vs. Ombre color

Balyage is a really hot trend right now, you’ll see it in all the latest magazines. It gives a natural, sun kissed look that is subtle and natural at the base then melts into lighter shades through the mid shaft and ends. It looks beautifully effortless like the random color you’d receive after being at the beach all summer! It will grow out without developing obvious roots.

The technique is done freehand, it is very versatile and can be used to achieve many looks, including ombre color. You will fall in love with the fabulous results.

Ombre hair color has become one of the most popular trends for the celebrities in 2011. Ombre hair is accomplished by creating darker roots and extending downward to lighter ends.

Both of these techniques are such a personalized color that no one will have but you! Balyage and ombre color look amazing on brunettes and blondes!
