Trend Alert - Sombre for Summer

Just as the name suggests - it's ombre, but softer (or more subtle).

Lots of celebrities have ditched the obvious ombre, and have opted for a grown out summer color, a subtle graduation from roots to ends, a change that is so small but it still makes a big difference.

The color gradually fades from top to bottom, much like a little kid's long hair gets those gorgeous, naturally lighter ends in the summer. It's a look that seems more refined and extremely easy to keep up with.

Summer Short Do

ericIn recent summers, mane trends dictated that women had to brave the  humidity in wavy, below-the-shoulder hair. The only stylish relief was a   fishtail braid.

This year, inspired by celebs from Miley Cyrus to Anne Hathaway and  Michelle Williams to Rihanna, women are getting much more severe chops. And they're liking it.

"Short hair is soooo feminine this year," said André Richard Baldini, owner of André Richard Salon in Center City.

"It's not new that women cut their hair in warmer weather, but this year, I have a feeling the Gatsby movie is encouraging them," he added, referring to the bob, a popular Roaring Twenties flapper look.

Baldini and his 12-person styling crew have been giving clients  shorter looks since late winter, when supermodel Karlie Kloss inspired a   slew of Tweeters, Instagrammers and Pinteresters to try a  nape-of-the-neck shag featuring a bit of bang.

Experts predicted Kloss' do was going to be the coif of the year. And while "the chop" - as it was deemed by Vogue magazine - was  pretty hot, it wasn't the only cropped look making heads turn this year.

Spiky styles, like Cyrus', are high on the fantabulous meter, as are inverted asymmetrical bobs like actress Chelsea Kane's.

One woman who committed to a drastic cut is 18-year-old high school senior Sarah Smith.

For two years, Smith, of Springfield Township, Montgomery County,  wore glam Beyoncé-like hair straightened with a product that acted like a   relaxer but didn't have any chemicals, she said one recent Saturday  afternoon.

"I used to want to get rid of my curls," Smith said. When dripping  wet, her hair reached down her back and revealed two textures - wavy  loose curls from the scalp to mid-ear. The rest was bone-straight and  limp.

"Now, I just want my curl back."

Stylist Eric Nowacki knew just what to do. He was thinking a  beat-the-heat lob, but he wasn't sure how short Smith was going to let  him go. read more

Spring

Spring Trends

The forecasts are in and Andre has made his predictions for the upcoming spring season trends.


Blondes are all over the radar this season and it’s not just the ladies
who are getting in on this hot look. Andre Richard Salon offers popular
‘guy-lights’ for the men out there who are looking to lighten up a
little bit. The ‘guy-light’ gives gentlemen a natural lightened look.
Girls and guys alike are sporting the blonde bombshell look this season
and it’s the perfect way to lighten up for the spring.

Ombre
has been around for a while but Andre is predicting a re-vamp in the
popular style. Here at the salon we are offering a partial Ombre
treatment that minimizes the time spent in the salon chair as well as
the cost to you! Celebs like Jessica Biel love the partial Ombre. It’s
simple, natural, and a great twist on an already beautiful look.


Another trend on the horizon has been named “The Karlie” and deemed the
Haircut of the Moment. The cut is named after super model Karlie Kloss
who can be seen sporting a bob with a fierce bang. The bang gives the
traditional bob a whole new dimension and we are loving it. Check out
this video http://bit.ly/VWo6Ko of Andre doing a Karlie cut featured on Fox 29.

Book your appointment at the Best Hair Salon in Philadelphia today to try out any of these fabulous spring trends.

Blonde Ambition


On February 28 Andre Richard Salon held Blonde Ambition, a day-long
blonde-a-thon where clients got 20% off lightening services. The day
concluded with a Media Cocktail Party hosted in-part by Philly FABB www.phillyfabb.com.  Guest enjoyed award-winning Xochitl www.xochitlphilly.com
guacamole, a specialty cocktail called the Blonde Baldini, and they
also got blonded with a clip-in extension. During Blonde Ambition we had
the pleasure of meeting Kim Blacklock, an actress in the new movie
Power of Few, and styling her for her premiere party. Thank you to
everyone who came out and supported Andre Richard Salon at this exciting
event.
