Have you noticed the winter trend of taking last year’s pastel hair colors and amping them up with extreme shine to create a metal effect? We have and we’re on board with this cool color effect. Celebs have been rocking the trend and it’s all over the runways, Pinterest and Tumblr.
To get this look, use Ion® Color Brilliance® Master Colorist Series Hair Color. Get your creative hair color juices flowing with these Sally Beauty permanent creme colors : Smoky Pink, Sable, Black Cherry and Midnight Blue Black.
To achieve any metallic hair color, you’ll need to start with a bleached base, creating a blank canvas for your shiny metal. If you go with the hot trend of metallic grey or favor a bright metallic blonde, Clairol Shimmer Lights Original Conditioning Shampoo is a great maintenance tool, canceling brassiness and adding immense shine.

Femme Couture Quad Shadow
It’s February, the month of love. If you are looking for romantic hair styling ideas to celebrate the season, we have a couple for you. Both come courtesy of a flat iron – a tool every woman needs in her styling tool chest. This versatile hot tool not only smoothes and adds shine but may also be used to create curls, waves, flipped ends and more! One of our faves – the Jilbere Tourmaline Series flat iron – is ON SALE NOW.
ROMANTIC HAIRDO IDEA 1 Beach-Ready Waves
There are a few methods to produce a sexy beach wave with a flat iron.
METHOD 1 : The Crinkle
Section out your hair and as you move the flat iron down each section, fold in alternating directions. The larger the chunks, the larger the wave. To keep it messy & natural-wave looking, alternate the size and direction of the folds as you move around your head.
METHOD 2 : The Curl
Once you get a section in your flat iron, twist to form a curl as you pull the iron through. Again, work in different-sized sections and pull the tool through in different directions to get that messy, beach-y look. TIP: Don’t curl all the way to the ends.
METHOD 3 : The Fold
Think of a pin curl for this method. With your fingers, roll a section of hair up into a round curl near your head. Then replace your fingers holding the curl with the iron, clamping it over the rolled up hair for a few seconds (watch those fingers when clamping!). Release and move on to next section, working in differing section sizes and curl directions.
ALL METHODS TIP : Do not adjust or touch the curls until you have finished your entire head. Then use fingers to shake the style and loosen it up a bit. Go back in anywhere that needs more love and set with a finishing spray, if you like.
ROMANTIC HAIRDO IDEA 2 Delicate Low Ponytail
If something a little more subdued is what you are after – a romantic, low-slung ponytail is always in style. For this look, you will want to use your flat iron as a straightening iron. First, straighten your entire head of hair. Next, just above your neck take half to two-thirds of your hair, give it a twist, then secure with a band with the rest of your hair. Twist accomplished!
To get the hair wraparound to happen…
(1) Take a small strand of hair from the bottom of the ponytail.
(2a) Wrap it around until almost completely wrapped and end of hair strand is on underside of pony. Then use a bobby pin to secure (in towards your head).
(2b) Wrap the strand around just a few times, then use a clear band to secure, release rest of strand into pony and pull the loop over the band. Here’s a good tutorial video of this second way.
