Spring is busting out all over, from head to toe. Don’t we all look forward to beating the winter blues and grays with blooming color?
Master Stylist Selma says color is very fashion-forward this year, with lots of pastels and other trending colors—just as in clothes and spring accessories.
“Lilac is very big for spring, as is silver, pink—not fuchsia, but softer, baby pink,” she says.
Think Easter eggs, tulips, the movie Frozen (still big), teal, orange or raspberry sherbet, fantasy colors—My Little Pony. Even polka dots if you please.
Color may be temporary, or semi-permanent. But, especially after winter’s drying heat, don’t try this at home. H2O Salon Spa has the know-how and the professional products that can treat and moisturize your hair as it’s colored.

Color for the Ages
Don’t worry, ladies of a certain age—if you’re not ready to mix it up unicorn-style, there are well, not 50, but many trendy shades of gray including silver, and they’re fabulous.
According to Selma, the new grays are a beautiful way to transition your tresses if you’re tired of covering up those telltale strands every three to four weeks.
“It’s a way of enhancing what you have with minimum upkeep. We match your undertone, so the color can fade to a warm hue, or to a blond. You want to keep the natural tone so your hair looks naturally gray—but brighter.” In other words, you want richness, not brassiness or a drab, matte finish.
The biggest trend right now is going from blond to really white, often with root shadowing, creating a dramatic contrast. “This is very big with young people,” Selma says.
The Cutting Edge
Fabulous color is one thing, but a stylish cut shows it off to its best advantage. The Master Stylist notes that blunt cuts are still in, while versions of the 70’s shag cut are the latest trend happening on the scene.
Bangs are back by popular demand. Everything from blunt bangs, textured bangs, and curtain bangs. The advantage of the new bang variety, are being “really flattering on any shape face.” When in doubt seek an H2O Salon Spa professional for the look that’s best for you.
The most-requested cut is just off the shoulder. “Bobs are number-one right now, moving away from ‘shattered’ ends. But even with long hair, a blunt cut, with a clean line across the bottom, looks really fresh.”
Blunt cuts look especially sharp with sleek, straight hair. Curly girls have options. Keratin treatments not only tame frizzies, they enhance any hairstyle or type of hair with lots of shine.
Choose Keratin Express, which lasts about a month and a half, or get a regular Keratin treatment which gives color-treated hair a high gloss for as many as three months, depending on how often you shampoo.
