11 Spring/Summer Hair Trends Perfect for South Florida

By | Hair Care, Hair Color, Hair Styles | No Comments

As the seasons change, new trends start to role in, especially in the beauty sphere. As one of the top hair salons in Boca Raton, FL, we stay on the forefront of what’s trending each season. We’re excited to announce that this spring/summer brings several sizzling styles that we are loving for our fashion-forward Boca Raton clients.  Here are just a few pictures of the colors and styles performed for our selective clients by the staff at Salon Sora….

2017 Hair Trends for Boca Raton, FL

Picture1

Hair Color Trends

Balayage- This modern day highlighting technique is achieved by hand-painting hair for a dimensional custom color. This color trend has been around for a few seasons and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Hair coloring is one of the most popular services that we perform at Salon Sora, one of the top hair salons in Boca Raton FL, and we have noticed that many of our clients are opting for cool blonde and honey colored balayage.

Color Melt– This coloring technique seamlessly blends three or more similar colors. It can start from light to dark or dark to light, but a deeper root with lighter ends is the most popular version that we see. This low maintenance look looks best on medium to long hair and looks stunning with vivid colors.

Vivid Colors- For those who like to walk on the wild side, there is no better time to release your inner unicorn with an alternative hair color. If you are bold, consider the holographic hair trend (yes, it’s a thing!) or if you prefer something more muted, try rose gold or pink strands. We offer both permanent and temporary color options, so you can keep your unicorn mane for as little or as long as you’d like.

Picture3Hair Cut Trends

Pixie Cut- If you are ready for a look that is easy and breezy for spring/summer, consider a pixie cut. This short haircut is manageable and looks chic on platinum blonde locks.

The Chop- Frist came the lob and then there is the chop. This cut is slightly longer than a lob with lots of textured layers. It’s the perfect length for South Florida because it’s long enough to put up in a pony on hot summer days.

Long Layers- For women who prefer long locks and want a subtle change, consider adding some long layers. This will give your hair texture and looks great on all hair textures.

Bangs- If you are ready for a fresh new look for the season, but don’t want to commit to a major chop, consider some bangs. From blunt bangs to long fringe bangs, adding bangs is an easy way to change things up.

Hairstyle Trends

Blow out– Who doesn’t love a good blow out? Smooth strands with rounded ends is a classic look for spring and summer.

Pin Straight Hair- Super straight hair is back in a style! When straightening your hair at home, always use a smoothing serum that protects your hair from heat damage. Phytodefrisant by Phyto of Paris and Flat Out by Goldwell are two excellent products to help you achieve the ultimate sleek look you are seeking.

Braids- A braided hairstyle is a spring/summer staple and it’s the perfect way to stay cool as the temperature starts to rise in South Florida.

Hair Accessories- It’s all about releasing your inner flower child as ribbons and flower crowns dominate the hair accessory game this spring/summer. To embrace this boho trend, try weaving a piece of lace into your braid or tie a piece of ribbon around your pony tail. Of course, if you are headed to a music festival (think Sunfest), a flower crown is always a good choice.

Salon Sora’s 6 Essential Oils for Excellent Hair and Skin

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Go to any online magazine or pick one off the shelf and you’ll see many elixirs and concoctions claim to make you more youthful, beautiful and sexy. Well, as you know the professional staff at Salon Sora is dedicated to making the men and women of Boca Raton and South Florida more ravishing than they already are. So, we put together our six essential oils that are ‘must haves’ when it comes to healthy radiant skin and super-strong hair. Get ready to be whisked away by our expert advice! (at least read the blog).

  1. Our Mani-Pedi pros suggest using olive oil on your feet to keep them soft and supple. This substance is ideal to use after taking a dip in the pool or exfoliating with the sand at the beach. Love it!
  2. There are several organic products you can apply to the hair to help stimulate growth; we recommend using coconut oil, hibiscus oil. You can find these at most Farmer’s Markets and Walmart.
  3. If your skin is prone to acne, then Tea Tree oil will help to prevent skin from being over processed and undernourished. It’s not an outrageous fix either.
  4. If you’re having a tough time getting your nails to grow or work around harsh chemicals, like detergent and soap, try using Almond Oil to boost some moisture.
  5. A great detox formula for your skin is coconut oil. This ingredient is what we call a ‘wonder food’ as it’s perfect for all types of issues. No smell, just benefits.
  6. There are many products on the market that claim to promote eyelash growth. However, you could spend a ton of cash on these cures to find they don’t always work. Castor Oil is a fantastic product that can make a huge difference. Use mascara applicators to apply to your eyelashes before going to bed then wash off in the morning. You’ll be fluttered with super sexy lashes!

There you have it! The top-secret oils that can make your hair and skin radiant, glowing and just plain beautiful. If you have questions regarding any of our salon treatments for hair, skin or nails, please book your appointment today with the best salon in Boca Raton, Salon Sora.

Salon Sora’s Guide to Washing Hair Extensions

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

We know many women around Boca Raton love to wear their hair extensions. Hair extensions made of human hair are by far the best type for anyone to sport in the heat of the South Florida sun. However, these get dirty just as your natural hair does and need to have proper care for them to last longer. Let’s face it, they are an investment that needs your attention, and we’ve got the answers for you right here.

If the extensions are made of human hair and not synthetics, then keep in mind, you can wash them with shampoo and conditioner, just as you would your hair. There are a few things you need to remember when cleaning that will help you keep them looking new.

  • Don’t wash them too often. Unlike your real hair, these can fall apart at the seams were sewed together. Wash them once every two weeks, and they should be okay. Unless, you use a lot of product such as hair spray, in which case once a week.
  • Don’t scrub or ball them up. They can become tangled and create a real mess causing hair breakage and damage. Gentle motion squeezing shampoo or conditioner is a better method.
  • Leave your conditioner on for up to 5 minutes to ensure the product is moisturizing. Since the hair isn’t a part of your hairs eco-system, natural oils can’t always get to the shaft of the extensions; you’ll need to condition them when shampooing to ensure their longevity.
  • Use wide tooth combs or brushes meant for wigs and extensions. Comb out while still wet and then hang to dry on a towel rack.
  • Air dry does NOT use a blow dryer as this can cause tangling.
  • Don’t use super oily products such as coconut oil or tea tree oil; this can only cause the wefts to become sticky and not flow like human hair.
  • If it’s a curly weft or wig, then be sure not to use alcohol-based products as this chemical will dry and frizz and no one wants that.
  • Use a silk scarf to wrap curly hair wigs and extensions while drying; this will help to keep the shape.

With a little TLC, your wigs and wefts will look incredible all the time. You’ll also be protecting your investment from going down the drain. Literally! Nonetheless, we hope this blog is helpful to you. If you’d like to hear more about a particular topic, drop us a line, we love thoughts, and suggestions.

Until next time, Salon Sora is sending out Big Hugs to you All!

Salon Sora’s Answer to the War Against Your Skin and Foundation

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Just step into the cosmetics aisle of any department or drug store, and you’ll find there’s just about as many different foundations as there are ways to apply it. Whether you’re new to using makeup or you’ve done so for years, applying foundation can sometimes seem like a war zone. You must have a strategy that will work once you’ve paired your skin tones with the right shade of foundation. In this week’s blog, Salon Sora will help you win the war against your foundation that will help your skin to look it’s best.

Old School, isn’t so old. After washing your face thoroughly and before applying your toner, use an ice cube to help minimize pores. This step is perfect before applying a primer and will help the products go on with a smoother finish.

Don’t go for the White Racoon Effect! Highlighters and Concealers are excellent tools for contouring the face. However, if they aren’t applied correctly, you could look like a raccoon with white eyes! As we learned from the Kardashians, concealers in different shades create a great base and show off bone structure avoiding unwanted ghostly looks.

Before applying mist the face and your brush with some mineral water. Once the water starts to dry, dab your primer on and blend well with a brush. Beauty blenders work well too. This method should allow you the maximum coverage with the most minimum work.

When you live in a place like South Florida, it’s important always to wear foundation with a good sunscreen. What many people don’t know is there are ingredients in sunscreen that can help moisturize but also prevent ‘crepey’ skin.  Another benefit that sunscreen has is its ability to hydrate dry eyelids. Apply sunscreen or opt for foundations with high SPF factors. This method will not only make your foundation look healthy but will also protect your skin from radicals and sun rays.

Depending on the weather once you’ve applied your foundation use a setting spray or face powder to finish. If it’s humid, we suggest a setting spray if it’s dry out or you’ll be indoors mostly, then powder is suitable. South Floridians should adjust according to the elements.

In closing, most of these methods are going to be a trial and error solution. Don’t worry; this is common amongst the civilian makeup artists everywhere. If you’re having a difficult time figuring out the most efficient ways to wear your foundation, spend a day with one of our cosmetics experts. They can teach you what will look best for your skin.

Does Shaving Your Face Make the Hair Grow Back Thicker?

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Salon Sora Has the Answer

While this topic may seem a bit awkward for some, those who have been born with naturally thick facial hair will find this helpful. Without a doubt, waxing is annoying and sometimes costly, pills are not going to stop the hair follicles on your face from growing and producing hair. However, much to your surprise things like eyebrow razors and regular shaves aren’t as bad as people may think. Here are some reasons why you don’t have to worry about face shaving.

Many women have had the graces of their family genes passed down to them. Whether it’s a large nose or facial hair went amiss, it’s still a part of what makes them who they are. In some cases, you can live with a bit of a mustache, but not most of the time. If your appearance is important to you, then it’s time to find a solution.

We’ve all heard that your face hair will grow back thicker and darker if you shave it off. Right? Wrong! This is a myth passed down by mothers and perhaps even fathers who didn’t want you to use their razors. LOL. Okay, we are just kidding about that part, but when it comes to your facial hair, shaving it off will not cause the hair to grow back thicker or darker.

The hair follicles and the shaft of the hair are not going to reproduce itself in other places. You were given the skin cells and hair roots at the time you were born. Shaving doesn’t cause a difference because you’re only removing hair from the surface and not at the hair bulb, veins or gland. When using a razor, you’re only cutting the hair shaft at the skin’s out layer. Therefore, you can’t make more hair bulbs, oil glands or hair follicles, thus making it impossible to change the thickness or amount of facial hair to grow back.

Next time someone gives you this advice, tell them the pros at Salon Sora knows. We hope you found this blog to be helpful.

Salon Sora’s Favorite Nail Colors You Can Wear Year-Round

By | Manicures and Pedicures | No Comments

Nothing is better than a day of pampering with a good manicure. That is unless it’s a mani-pedi! When your hands are well cared for, they can be more youthful in appearance along with a multitude of other benefits. However, it seems that nail polish or color seems almost seasonal, limiting you to the choices you can make when your manicurist tells you to “pick out a color.”  In this week’s blog, we point out some of our favorite Salon Sora nail colors that won’t restrict you during any month! Ready, rev up your nail file and let’s go!

Pale shades of pink, beige and blue are super beautiful no matter what day it is. The shiny finishes can help to elongate the fingers and make them look slender. Think of clean and pure when selecting your favorite pastel shade. Be sure to complete the matte colors with a beautiful top coat for extra luster.

Next, let’s consider glitter. Whether you’re placing a coating of glitter as an accent to the tip or cuticle of the nail or you’re going for a cover-all effect, glitter is one of the hottest decorations that will enhance any manicure. The best part is, there’s no limit to how many times per year you can coat your nails with this sparkly finish! We just love the bling at Salon Sora!

Monochromatic shades of gray, black and white have no limitations for showing off your ring fingers. Try a lighter gray or pure white for spring and summer and then switch to the alluring and sexy black colors for fall and winter. One thing you can be sure of is your hands will stick out no matter what shade you choose and these colors all look perfect for people who like to keep their nails short and squared.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a real switch from conservative to totally out there. That’s okay, and we love the wild just like the rest of you. Some ultra-chic colors to consider if you’re a bit ferocious is the perfect shade of blue. Ever since this color hit fashion magazines everywhere, you can see people scrambling to grab their favorite shade to match their style and mood. Even superstar, Jennifer Lopez has her select colors of jade, turquoise, and the Caribbean. When you live in a place like Boca Raton, these colors never go out of style. Love it!

As you know, there’s a rainbow of colors to choose from out there. These are just a few that we love that are the standard go to’s when you can’t decide. If all else fails, ask your amazing manicurist!

Highlight Finishes You Just Must Have – A Salon Sora Cosmetic Recommendation

By | Makeup | No Comments

When it comes to cosmetics and make-up living in a place like Boca Raton, you must remember to select the right foundation and finishes. In fact, with the hot, humid weather if you use the wrong base the rest of your makeup will not stay put or even stay on your face. In this blog, we reveal some of the best highlighters to use for your skin tone and the type of look you want to make you look healthy and not ruddy up your finish. Grab your powder brush and let’s go!

Since we’re talking about highlighters and not foundation, let’s just say, when your skin is tan, you don’t want to cover that up. You want to give the illusion that your skin is shining and healthy with the same glow you see actresses like Jennifer Lawrence sporting around. If you pick a highlighter that’s too light, it might make you look ghostly or ghastly either way you want to look at it. So, here’s what we recommend:

  1. Use a great concealer and substitute in places where you typically use foundation.
  2. Select bronzers that match your skin tone.
  3. Use your highlighters sparingly and don’t be afraid to use different shades in diverse places.
  4. Strategize your look with the right colors.

If you ask Kylie Jenner or Kim Kardashian, they will probably tell you they pioneered the “concealer rules” rule. This is the foundation that you will use generously on the face to give a base. Say bye-bye to using foundations of any sort. When you apply, the concealer get a good one, and two of the best would be Boo-Boo Concealer and NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. The concealer needs to be implemented in the following places:

Under eyes and in a ‘V’ shape below the dark circles, between the brows and on the ball of the chin. If you have any other blemishes, cover them too. The Wonder Pencil by NYX is incredible for covering flaws and should be in every person’s makeup kit.

Once you’ve covered your dark circles and other discolorations, it’s time to highlight.

Technically you’re going to be contouring the facial features by using your darkest highlighter under the cheekbones, neck, chin and temples. After you’ve done this the next technique is to use your lightest highlighter on the top of the cheek bone, bridge of the nose, the center of the forehead and on the ball of your chin. We love the NAKED collections by Urban Decay as well as the Milk Makeup sticks. If you have a nice warm tan, try the Holographic Stick that can be worn on any part of the face and leaves a gorgeous lavender tone.

By learning to use your highlighter with ease, you’ll soon be kissing your foundation’s good bye once and for all. Keep in mind; you can always book a session with our make-up artists to give you a hands-on lesson.

Hope you enjoyed this week’s blog, keep watching for more amazing tips from the Best Salon in Boca Raton! Salon Sora Loves YOU!

5 Tips for Hair Nutrition Found in Your Grocery Store

By | Hair Care | No Comments

If you’re looking to have healthy hair, there are a lot of things you can do to create nutrients with products you can get right from your local grocer. While some people may still use things like beer and eggs to make hair stronger there’s some other products you may not have thought to use. In this week’s blog we share a few of Salon Sora’s tips that might help you.

  • Coconut Oil
  • Castor Oil
  • Lemon Juice
  • Fenugreek Seeds
  • Banana

It seems that coconut oil is great for a multitude of uses including a hair remedy.  We suggest using this incredible product as a hair strengthening conditioner. The Salon Sora recipe treats dry scalp and psoriasis giving the hair follicles a chance to hold in the moisture from the natural product. Try it yourself by mixing a cup of coconut oil with enough hot water to melt it down. Apply to the hair and leave on for up to 30 minutes. Then rinse completely. You’ll notice a difference almost immediately and your hair will love it.

Castor oil is yet another excellent substance found right at the supermarket. This is a great cure to rid dandruff and can also help with psoriasis. Seborrheic Dermatitis patients can also benefit and prevent the infection from spreading. Jamaican Black Caster Oil is an excellent product and you can buy from AMAZON. For severe cases or if the scalp gets worse, contact your doctor right away.

Lemon Juice is an incredible fruit with its amounts of B2 complex and vitamin C attributes. Lemon juice can be used as a hair lighter for blondes and red heads. But, it’s ideal for oily hair when mixed with egg white. Let us know how it works out for you.

When mixed with water, Fenugreek seeds can add shine and make hair appear sleek and soft. It’s also an excellent solution for treating eczema.

Stay away from high sugar and preservatives that can take a toll on your hair, scalp and skin. Remember to use a good shampoo and conditioner twice a week, unless you sweat a lot or work out regularly.

A mashed banana is yet another super food ideal for those wanting to rid a bad case of the frizzies. Next time those favorite fruits are starting to get ripe and brown, mash them with a fork and leave on hair for 15 minutes. You’ll be impressed with the smooth look,

These are just a couple home solutions you can try out, let us know how these tips work out

Reasons Why Your Hair is Having a Bad Day

By | Hair Care | No Comments

keratin treatments boca ratonThere are many factors our hair has a bad day from time to time. Where you live, what you eat and your lifestyle can all play a part of your hair getting out of control. We’ve all been there no matter what the cut, style, straight, curly, color or natural aspects are of our beautiful locks. Everyone is entitled to a bad hair day. If you’re finding yourself weeping or whining in front of your mirror, then you’ll want to let Salon Sora come to your rescue. Before wearing a ponytail or tucking under a baseball cap, read this blog.

Check your diet for a reason why your hair is reacting in an awkward manner. Many people don’t realize things like alcohol, too much greasy food or even gluten can play a huge part of how your hair may react. From the follicles to the ends your hair need to have the proper nutrients and care to be healthy, grow properly and look gorgeous 24/7. Medication is also another problem that can cause your hair to be out of control. If you’ve ever been pregnant before, and took pre-natal pills, you might recall how well your hair and nails grew. Ask your doctor or physician if your current diet or meds are causing you to have a lack of the proper nutrients.

Another reason for bad hair days is the weather. If you live in a place like South Florida, you are already used to this as a part of normal and daily living. Solutions could be cutting your hair into a shorter more manageable style to wearing it in a different way. The bun, the pony and the braid can be your best buddy if your hair is longer. Bobby pins and other hair accoutrements will make life easier if you’re in a hurry.

Your shampoo may be wrong for you. Certain shampoos and conditioners can make life unbearable if they’re not right for the texture of your hair. Cheap shampoos can contain a lot of bad chemicals and products like alcohol which can be drying. You don’t necessarily need suds to be clean and shampoos containing sulfates can seem like the hair isn’t getting clean when on the contrary it is.

One last point to make is you hair may be in desperate need of a new hair cut. While the hair grows, it can also change in texture, and the way it lays on the head. Let your stylist know if there have been any significant changes.

New Year’s Eve Manicure’s Salon Sora Style

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

boca raton nail salonsThis year you can bedazzle any one of your colleagues or family members when you give out their presents with a sexy-chic manicure that’s sure to make an impression. We’ve got just the colors and styles right at your fingertips. No pun intended. Get your cell phone ready because after reading this blog you’ll want to make an appointment! Ready? Go!

While we’ve seen the hot look of a chrome wrapped car, this 2017 you can rock out with chrome plated nails. Ask you, manicurist, to see a variety of shades from dark gun metal to gold foil. These colors are ultra-sexy and are ready to click the champagne glasses right along with you.

Unwrapping gifts can be super embarrassing when your nails are on the fritz! Try out a short style with well-manicured and groomed cuticles to match. There’s nothing worse than taking a beautiful photo with your nail bed and cuticle looking like it’s ready to star in Halloween. Don’t hide your hands, be proud of them with a professional ‘mani.’

Depending on your work schedule if you’re able to sport the longer nails then try a new shape such as coffin or stiletto to pump up your style. Another shape that’s sweet is the tapered square which is much like the coffin only it’s wider at the ends.

Don’t be afraid to get trendy with the glitter and transition techniques. We’ve seen so many variations of this from one nail painted to half and half or just glitter tips. A super smoking look is using flat paint finishes with glitter accents on one or many nails. Shiny and matte are the latest trends in the nail world.

It’s cute when people can pull it off, but a decal or two for the holidays is nail art. Think snowflakes (even if you live in Boca) bows, bling, sparkle and candy canes to liven up any paint job out there. Salon Sora knows you’ve got character, now let’s see you use it!

From your head to your toes we want you to be the princess at the ball. Keep in mind 90% is you attitude the rest you can leave to us for making you look stunning before the ball drops. Ask you manicurist for the look that’s right for you.

Book your appointment today for your mani-pedi! Hugs from Salon Sora!
