2015 Mens Hair Trends
2015 Vintage 1930's 1940's Mens Hairstyles are SUPER HOT right now.
 
 
HIGH and TIGHT with LENGTH on top. A.K.A. The Pompadour. This is perfect for the men that want their cut fashion forward. It is versitile. It looks DEBONAIRE and SHARP for the day in the office or tossed it with a little pomade for the laid back hipster-look. If you got the facial hair, FLAUNT it. No Shave Novemeber is here and these burly manly BEARDS are in high fashion. The bigger the beard, the better.

The ASYMMETRICAL UNDERCUT is parted on one side and combed or pushed over. This cut looks great with a HARD PART, where we actually cut in your part with our trimmers. This is all over the runways for men and looks extremely clean.

 
Long. My personal FAV. Its simple, its classic, it never goes out of style. Long hair takes a certain type of man to wear, a strong hairline is a must. It doesn't matter if your hair is straight or curly, your stylist will give you the right product to make it fit you the best. Wondering how you can grow your hair out? Come in for a consultation and we will walk you through what it takes to grow that manly mane out.
 
The Textured, Faded crew cut. This is a throwback cut that came back around. Adam Levine is rocking this now and its very LOW-MAINTENCE. We know men love that. Its faded up the sides to a short almost "BUZZ" cut look. This look is not for everyone, you have to have a good headshape and strong, facial bone features.

S'Ombre hair color is 'subtle ombre'. Ombre hair color where the transition from dark to light is natural and a slight color difference. Ombre is where the transition from dark to light hair color is more dramatic.
 
For Fall 2015, the more natural looking hair color, the better. Balayage Hair color is huge for S'Ombre or O'mbre.

The sun can reek some serious havoc on our hair. Try a luxurious & customized conditioning treatment next time you're in the salon. For the month of August, Salon Envy is offering the Kérastase In Salon Treatments for 20% off.

 
Kérastase's philosophy for the hair is to:
1. Cleanse
2. Treat  
3. Protect

 
 
Kérastase offers Fusio Dose treatments. Kérastase is the most "health conscious" hair care line that will improve your hair over time, not just temporarily treat the symptoms.

First, we diagnose the primary and secondary personalized concerns for your hair.
Second, we massage the customized treatment into the hair. The ultra-concentrated treatments penetrate the active ingredients instantly and last about 4-6 weeks.

Be. Honest. With. Your. Hair.
All of us could use a hair "treat" after this summer sun. :)

3 Easy Summer Hairstyles!

Posted:
As the hot summer months approach us, it is time to prepare for all that Chicago has to offer. With all the outdoor concerts, street festivals and brunch dates, most of us are not looking to spend hours on our hair everyday. Here are some of our favorite summer hairstyles for when it gets too hot to move, let alone blow-dry, flat iron or curl.
 
1. The Ballerina Bun

A tight high bun will help keep you cool in the summer heat and will also give you an instant elegant feel. To get this look, spritz damp hair with texturizing spray and pull it back into a high ponytail then twist the tail around the base and secure your hair with bobby pins. If you’re short on time, try slipping in a hair donut. The donut will quickly create the same look and also help keep shorter layers in place. 

 
2. The Tuck and Cover
The Tuck and Cover is another easy hairstyle that will keep your shoulders cool during the hotter months. To get this look, all you need is a stretchy headband. You can find step-by-step instructions here and watch a video tutorial here. To summarize, all of your hair should be wrapped up and then tucked into the band. If any tails or flyaways slip out just wrap and retuck them. If any of them are too short to reach, hide them within the loops. Finish with hairspray.
 

3. Dutch Braid Accented Ponytail
Summer is the perfect time to showoff your best braids. We love this hairstyle because it is easy and time efficient. Try this hairstyle on either wet or dry hair. You can find step-by-instructions here and watch a video tutorial here

How do I get the most volume in my hair?

Posted:
THE BEST WAY TO GET VOLUME IN YOUR HAIR.
Lets face it, the higher the hair, the closer to Heaven :) Just kidding.

Whether your hair is fine, medium, or coarse, there are a few IMPORTANT details that you'll need to achieve the MOST out of your hair. "Most" meaning volume, height, thickness, voluptousness, BIG, bulk, mass, victorias secret hair... you get the point...


1. CLEANSE YOUR HAIR.
Simple and easy. Make sure you use a deep cleansing shampoo such as Bumble & Bumble Sunday shampoo to remove excess BUILD UP and products that may be left on your hair and cause greasy ness and heaviness. Also, use the clarifying shampoo along with a daily volumizing shampoo such as Kerastase Bain Volumifique with Kerastase Gelee Volumifique or L'Oreal Professional Paris Volumetry Shampoo and Conditioner.


2. STYLING PRODUCTS.
This goes along with No. 1, it all starts in the shower what you are washing and condiitoning with. Next, is your base products. They need to be light, have good control (hold) for your style, and also be the RIGHT type for your hair. Some of our favorite volumizing products here at Salon Envy are by Kerastases Couture Styling Line.

Kerastase Mousse Bouffant.
  • -Buildable volume and body
  • -Adds fullness and structure without weight
  • -Not stiff, flexible movement
  • -UV and heat protection
  • Kerastase Volumifique Mousse (for fine hair)
  • -Ampliflies and volumizes hair
    • -Gives more body while adding strength and substance 
    • -Provides flexible hold with a soft touch 
    • -Hair has added strength and substance, with blow-dry protection 
    • -Protects style with an anti-static effect 

Kerastase Lift Vertige

    • -Provides volume and lift at roots
      • -Long-lasting root support

        • -Adds shine
        • -UV and heat protection
        • Bumble & Bumble Thickening HairSpray
        • -Begins styling lift-off for any hair type
        • -(thick, thin or otherwise)
        • -moderate hold.
  • Bumble & Bumble Dry Spun Finish
  • -Translucent dry spray creates instant fullness
  • and texture to spin hair into an airy silhouette.
There are many more we offer but there are our favorites! Be sure to ask your stylist for the best recommendations for your hair type and texture.

3. The Blow-Dry
After you get the products in, next the most important step is your blow dry. Don't let your hair air dry and let gravity get the best of you. Blow Dry your hair right away and either blow dry the opposite way of your hair growth (upside down) or keep the blow dryer pointed up to get the MOST volume at your roots!

 
4. Set your hair with the round brush, velcro rollers, or hot rollers.
Another very important step is the way you roll your rollers, curling irons, or brushes. This goes back to the basics we learn in beauty school. Make sure it is ON BASE. BY that I mean look at the picture blow to show what it is to roll on base and off base. This will make a dramatic difference as to how much volume you'll get it in your hair!

The first picture the hair is pulled STRAIGHT up and rolled down. This will create much VOLUME and lift at your root.


As you can see in the picture below, the root area of the maniquins hair is flat. The hair in the red rollers was pulled to the side then rolled, this will leave your hair will less volume.


5. Back-combing, Teasing, Ratting, Whatever you like to call it!
This is a simple easy step, too! You take your comb and comb the hair BACKWARDS, hence the name, Back-Combing. Here is a picture to show how to do it! This will create volume and help hold your volume throughout your day. I like to back-comb and then hairspray to make sure I get the maxium hold from the back-combed area.


Thats all! Happy Blow Drying!
