Salon Sora Sombre Style for 2017

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

flocolordone copy26Many of you have already heard of the term “Ombre” which is a transitional color trend, which swept the nation for 2016. For the New Year, you’ll hear the word “Sombre” which is taking the place of the big panels of lighter or darker colors for a more subtle and softer look. Salon Sora has just the right shade for you to keep you looking stunning even during the winter months of Southern Florida. Let’s take a closer look.

When you live in a place like Boca Raton you can expect two things. One, your tan may be faded since you might not be spending too much time in the sun and Two, you’re still supposed to look your best no matter what the season may be. To keep your face looking bright and cheerful, highlights are a sure-fire method to achieve this effect. With the Salon Sora Sombre approach, you’ll still have darker roots with highlighted ends that use a soft blend of both high and low lights. This effect gives a subtle transition between the colors and looks more natural.

The trick to the perfect transition is not to make it seem like the hair has been color treated at all. This hair style creates the illusion the hair has been gently kissed by the sun which makes it perfect for this time of year.

The best part about going Sombre is you can stick with any shade or tone that you’d like and still create the effect by using lighter shades. For instance, let’s say you’re a spicy ginger, with a lot of nutmeg and cinnamon tones. The colors we would use to highlight your hair would be soft golden blondes with strawberry to make the flat tones of the darker reds pop with a slight highlight.

With Sombre colors we don’t pull the hair through a cap or weave it in. This technique is typically done by painting the product directly onto the hair without using foils and such. Although each stylist has their way of achieving the same outcome, this is one of the most common.

With a little hair ingenuity, we can make your hair go from the darker shades of mmmm, boring to a bombshell that creates as a stunning statement to carry you all the way to spring time. Don’t forget to bring in photos of the shade you’re looking for and share them with your stylist. We love pictures and examples, and this will help us to pick the look that will complement the rest of your features such as skin tones and eye color. Until then, Hugs from all of us at Salon Sora!

Salon Sora’s New Year Styles for 2017

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

make up salon boca ratonWith the new year gaining quickly upon us, many people are scrambling to get their last-minute cuts and colors in to look fabulous before the dropping of the ball. In this week’s blog, we uncover some party styles for you to consider before booking your appointment with the best salon in Boca Raton. Three, two, one!

The Big Bushy Braid | Beachy Lobs  |  Spectacular Colors  |  The Chanel Platinum Manicure  |  Dark Lips & Cat Eyes

You can turn just about any magazine page today and find the big bushy braid as one super smoking hot style for this year’s newest hair styles. One thing you’ll notice is the many different styles of how to wear the big bushy braid. Of course, these hairstyles would work more for those with long hair. However, if you’ve got medium hair, that’s long enough you can add a few extensions made of human hair to enhance your look. Nonetheless, this is a romantic and alluring way to wear your hair that’s just right for the 2017 New Year.

Next, it’s off to chat about the beach lob. Rather than a Bob, that is tapered and cut and can coiffe them to just about any length; this is a cut that derives from longer styles and is lobbed off at the shoulders or nape with longer strands toward your face. What makes it beachy is the way you style it afterward. Soft waves work better with hair that is not freshly shampooed. If you haven’t used a dry shampoo, you might want to try one using this hair technique.

Today’s hair colors are more wild and vivid than they were let’s say ten years ago. Pinks, purples and now the neon dyes enhance your natural hair color and bring it to new heights. Silver or Platinum is an ultra-chic tint that brings a bit of mystery to any age. Ask your stylist to hook you up with just the right color for your skin tones.

The Chanel nail colors and manicures are dramatic and look stunning for both day and evening wear. Think metallic mixed with black, silver, and gray. We love the way these colors ‘POP’ when dressed in a little black dress or your office wardrobe.

Lastly, let’s talk about your makeup. This year the lip is dark and matte. Drop the lipgloss and pile on the lipliner in shades of deep cherry, burgundy, and plum. When you live in South Florida and sport a year-round tan, these shades of lipstick are complimentary. After you pile on the dark lips, use a cat-eye liner to top it off. You can find many ways to make the perfect cat eyes on places like YouTube and Pinterest.

With all these Salon Sora tips for your to consider and try out, you’ll be bringing in the New Year with a Big Bang!

Salon Sora’s Holiday Updos Lineup for 2016

By | Hair Salon, Hair Styles | No Comments

Whether you’re looking for a quick way to go from the office to the office party or the perfect style to wear to your family gatherings, the updo is one hair creation that never gets old. This year the trends seem to be soft and alluring braids, buns and bows and we’ve got the updo with Salon Sora spirt! Get ready to get your ends curled with this week’s blog!

Boca Raton Hair BraidingBows, barrettes, and bling! Bows in your hair can be both romantic and youthful. This year we see a lot of ponytails wrapped in big bows to dress up any black gown or pantsuit. If you’re looking to use barrettes, use hair jewelry with lots of gemstones and silver or gold to show off your sparkle. It appears that these techniques are capping off the style whether that be a ponytail or messy bun, these accouterments can add something unique to any cut.

Braids, braids, and more braids are sweeping the runways and magazine layouts. Try on a fishtail braid that’s loose with lots of sultry sprigs of hair flowing along your face. You can add twists to shorter cuts like bobs and lobs by adding a few hair extensions to your natural cut. Be sure to buy extensions made from human hair and match to your current hair color.

Speaking of color, neon dyes is grabbing attention both under the fluorescent lights. Be prepared to have everyone asking you where you got your hair done! Fiery reds, Electric Blues, and purples are what everyone is raving about for 2016 and most likely will carry past the New Year. Imagine how crazy beautiful your French twist will be once you add some of these ultra-funky and fresh colors that glow in the black lights.

Next, decide with your bun if you’re going to go low with a flow or up high on top of your head. Incorporate braids with buns and you’ve got a whole lot more fun. One theme is definitive across the board with any of these styles, and that’s fine flowing curls and waves. Be sure to make it the hair look fluid.

Bangs are always a nice way to change up any cut. With a chunky short bang that frames the face, you’re updo takes on a whole new design. Keep some sprigs pulled around the face to show off your eyes. Wispy pieces of hair also avoid the tightly coiffed locks from last year.

With a little ingenuity and imagination, you’re be turning your holiday glam into Salon Sora Glamour! Stay charming!

Reminder: Book your holiday appointments early

Holiday Nails by Salon Sora for 2016

By | Manicures and Pedicures, Nail Salon | No Comments

This year if you’re looking to be sexy from your head down to your toes, Salon Sora can help you put your finger on just the right seasonal polish and nail art that will help you go from super to super-sexy in 2.5 minutes! Let’s point to the obvious, shall we?Nail salon boca raton fl

First, let’s say clean and healthy nails are in style no matter what season it is. A French or American manicure never seems to be old-school. However, add something chic to your white tips like glitter or gold to accent the already super-girl handle.

Gold foil designs over shades of green and red can tip things off when it comes to nail art. Ask your manicurist what his/her favorite design is this year, and we’re sure they’ll give you a dynamite and decorative pattern that will keep your hands from being hidden inside your pocket.

Geometric patterns are not only contemporary, but they’re also very popular throughout the fashion magazines. Bring in the look if you find something you admire and we’ll see if we can’t copy it. Be sure to browse through Pinterest to get a different perspective.

When you live in a place such as Southern Florida, you’ll find it’s not appropriate table manners to have dirty, dingy nails. Try a new shade of blue or a pearly pink to brighten up your fingertips even when you’re not sporting a tan.

If you’re into cute, think about adding a few snowflakes or some contemporary lace designs. This type of nail art is perfect for both child and adult and are ideal for the 2016 to 2017 holidays.

Black and Gold is a hot commodity for classic nail techniques. We’ve seen a lot of faded techniques as well. More nail technicians are focusing on the half-moons and decorating the nail beds from the cuticle up to the tip. Although this is opposite of what is typically requested, it’s a unique way of showing off those sexy nails.

Trying something new is half the fun. Be sure to look for a design or technique that will match your holiday gowns or outfit. Our manicurists will be happy to suggest the look that right for the dress or wardrobe. The best part is when you hear the compliments on how pretty your hands are for this year’s big celebrations.

Gift Giving the Salon Sora Way

By | Hair Salon, Manicures and Pedicures | No Comments

holidayAs part of the tradition, gift giving during the holidays continues to be on the forefront of everyone’s mind. Not only is finding the right gift valuable, but the reason or message behind the gift is also equally essential. (that is if you want the person to continue speaking with you) We at Salon Sora believe this week’s blog will help those in search of foolproof gifts that will make you look like a skilled gift giver of sorts…. Read on!

Everyone likes to be pampered, and there’re no two ways around it. Finding gifts that make a person feel special should be your utopia. Whether you give someone a gift certificate for a soothing massage or a detoxifying facial, your directive should entail wrapping the gift with intricate packaging or use a surprise element like tying a gift card to the end of a bouquet of beautiful balloons. The point is not to hand a gift card to someone and think they’ll get the same experience. Go the extra mile with ribbons and bows, and they’ll cherish the memory forever.

Next, contemplate things you can do together, such as booking a mani-pedi. Ladies, don’t think your man will frown upon this terrific gift either. People are becoming more in-tune with their feminine side and having you next to them while the manicurist gives them a fantastic foot massage may just be the flame needed to light your fire. (Just saying).

Now you understand the element of surprise and pampering; we’ll talk about encouragement. Giving someone inspiration to do something that person has always dreamed of, not only encourages them but, maybe they didn’t have the courage says wonders about you. For instance, if your mom or sister has always wanted to cut her hair short but was afraid, why not book them an appointment with an experienced stylist to give them their makeover. Furthermore, encouraging someone to do something that will change their appearance, may also change their entire outlook on life.

If your spouse or significant other isn’t looking forward to the company party or a family event, give them an early gift of getting hair and makeup done before your event. Let them know it’s an early present because you want them to shine at your celebration. Not too many people will turn you down for that one, rest assured.

Lastly, it is equally important to give yourself a gift of self-appreciation. Treat yourself to any one of our services as a way of saying, “Good Job” whether that’s for planning another first work party or finishing your shopping early. Either way, the holidays are a time to show people around them how meaningful they are and we’ve got a clever souvenir that’s ideal for anyone on your list. Until then, best of luck during your quest for gift giving.

We’d like to remind everyone to book your appointments early. Happy Holidays!

Boca Raton Just Got Sizzling Hot with Salon Sora Styles for Holiday Season

By | Hair Styles | No Comments

Blonde-hair-colour-ideas-2013This holiday season you can rest assure we’ll be busy lobbing and bobbing with haircuts that are sizzling hot throughout the rest of 2016. By the same token, our stylist’s scissors have all been sharpened to give you a look that will ‘wow’ friends and family all the way to the New Year.

Without delay, we’ve noticed that many of the cuts and colors have sustained across the fashion magazines. In fact, mermaid color is one style that has continued to evolve regardless of age. Women in their 60’s plus are sporting the pastels added to their locks of platinum and gray. For older ladies, this is a terrific way to bring back your youth that will leave your grandkids thinking you’re super cool! We’ve got just the right pink or lavender to add some sparkle to your updo or any cut.

As long as time has gone by the bob cut seems to have found itself a favorite past time. This cut is excellent for people looking to transition from long to shorter without drastically changing. On the flip side, bobs can be alternative cuts for wanting a change without too much commitment. This hairstyle is super easy for growing out. These reasons could be why the popularity of the haircut has never really left.

By the same token, the Lob is a newer version of the Bob with longer layers and this holiday season many people are trying variations of the long-tasseled look with a nice thick bang. As a matter of fact, bangs can be managed very easily and with long beachy layers, they can give you a whole new appearance. Nonetheless, try out a wispy or blunt bang that will turn heads during your holiday shopping in Boca Raton.

Super long, super straight and super-duper beautiful are what you call classic cuts. For those of you who want to keep your hair long remember a good hair treatment like keratin or one of our other straighteners can clean up those flyways. The smoother, the better to give your hair the youthful and healthy appeal.

In the same fashion these styles are closing out the 2016 year, we recommend working closely with your hairdresser for any of your styling needs. Don’t forget to book your appointment’s early as the salon is busy this time of year.

We’ll see you soon!

Salon Sora’s Holiday Spin Makeup for 2016

By | Hair Salon | No Comments

Makeup Salon Boca RatonAfter the Christian Dior had spread where they showed girls emphasizing their dark side, we thought it would be fun to give you our take on this ultra-mysterious but borderline natural style. Dramatic lipstick color, top-to-bottom big fluffy eyelashes, a well-defined brow and shiny skin are what you can expect. Here’s the Salon Sora’s Holiday spin on this beautiful makeover.

First, you’ve heard of the Vampy lip, right? Well, Salon Sora’s makeup artists will tell you “The Lady is a Vamp” in these alluring shades of plum, Bordeaux, and Merlot puckers. Be sure to line the lip carefully and for color that last ultra-long, color in lips with the pencil then go over with your preferred shade of lipstick. A beautiful look is to use a darker pencil on the outer edges then use a lighter shade in the bow and center of the bottom lip. This technique will make your lips look full and mysterious. These are the perfect shades for your holiday parties where you will be unforgettable.

Two things you’ll see staring right back at you are the dramatic eyelashes for this year’s celebrations. 1960’s model and entertainer, Twiggy made the fake eyelashes almost seem babyish. (we know it’s not a word). Ultra-thick black as black mascara and drawing with an eyelash pencil lashes. That’s right they’ve brought back the swinging 60’s with a Salon Sora flair. Faux eyelashes are a must with this eye makeup.

Skin that glows is the only way to pull this look off. Look for highlighter sticks and smear over the top of the cheekbones, down the bridge of your nose and on the ball of your chin. This effect, of course, should be applied after a good concealer. If you’re naturally glowing after you’ve taken a selfie, you know you put the highlights in just the right place.

Can you say “Glitter”? Since this is focused on the holidays, think New Year’s Eve or about sitting next to your honey under the lit tree. Does your face sparkle? Look for eyeshadow, heavy induced by glitter then emphasize with a dark deep eyeliner and cap off with your falsies. Super sexy but wait! There’s more! Use a natural lip liner, plop a blob of concealer in the middle of the lower lip then top off with lip-gloss. This is a chick and elegant look just right for kissing under the mistletoe.

These are just a few of Salon Sora’s Fantastic MakeUp tips just right for this year’s holiday season.

Salon Sora’s Secret to Being Shaggy, Not Shady

By | Hair Styles | No Comments

hair styling salon boca raton floridaFlip through any fashion magazine for Fall 2016 and what you’re going to see is a lot of natural waves, curls, and cuts. One of the most provocative styles this fall is rather passive aggressive in our opinion. It comes and just as soon as you fall in love with it, gone! Well, you can play that far-out game or get on board with Salon Sora’s secret to being shaggy but not shady. Read on!

Whether it’s short or long this fall, the runway’s and magazines have models jumping off pages with their sultry shag locks. This cut is one of the most versatile as it looks good straight or scrunched with that beachy wave. About the only variation that makes shag cuts unique are the bangs!

If you like a full bang or just a few wispy pieces along your face, shag cuts can accommodate both. Try airdrying and then adding a little volumizer to give it a bit of oomph! Whether you want to go big or go home, this is a cut that’s youthful no matter what the age.

On older women, a spunky bob with the layers of a shag cut is super sexy. Pair that with a unique color such as pewter or pink, and wowzah you’ve got about ten years coming off your head. It doesn’t matter if your 15 or 50, the shag cut is ideal especially if you like to change your hair style often.

One of the best parts of going Shaggy is the grow-out period. Since this cut includes layers of hair, it tends to be an easy transition for short to long or vice versa! If you’re looking to freshen up your look, this is one trim to try that even the celebrities will tell you “Go for It”!

Entertainers such as Taylor Swift to Meg Ryan have all stepped into a shag cut at one point or another. One reason why is the manageability of the cut. If you have thin, straight hair, a little product will go a long way with this type of hairstyle. Blow dry the ends under or curl them up, the style will delight you either way.  One woman who sports this doo today is Jennifer Anniston because it’s ideal for women who have baby fine hair.

So if you’re looking for a change and not sure what to do, but you want something where there’s little to no commitment, take the Salon Sora secret and get shaggy. You’ll love it!

Psyching Yourself Out to Go Short

By | Hair Styles | No Comments

short hair style boca ratonIf you’ve had long hair your entire life and you get the notion to have your hairstylist whack it all off. STOP! Drastic changes like that can take time getting comfortable. The biggest hurdle is it can take up to 2-3 years before it all grows back. In this blog, we tell you the Salon Sora secrets to psyching yourself out to love your short tresses for the long haul.

Before you have your stylist sharpen his/her, scissors get a full consultation. Show a ton of pictures, (find them on Pinterest) ask other people what they like about having short hair. By speaking to someone who’s taken the plunge or in some cases nose dive before you get it done, you can start to put yourself in the right mindset to having a pixie cut.

Face the facts; not everyone looks good with shorter hair. If you love styles like Rockstar Pink’s or Miley Cyrus hair, be forewarned this cut doesn’t always cut it. (no pun, really) There are apps out there that can help you envision how you would look but these are rather tedious and not realistic in most cases.

Another way to determine if you can pull off a shorter look is to try a wig! Yes, go to the wig store. Now imagine if you couldn’t change this same style for months or years. If you’ve tried a wig and love it, chances are you’re a good candidate for a change. If you put it on and it looks downright awful, don’t blame the wig. It may just not be for you.

Nonetheless, speak to your significant other asking them if they’re a fan of shorter versus longer. Believe it or not, trying on a super change on a whim, can cause issues.

Try getting a little taken off, but, not go boy cut right out the gate. Start gradually. Although having a shorter cut can be versatile, having a lobed Bob may limit what you can do with your hair. When you live in a state like Florida or a place such as Boca, your need to wear your hair for the weather. Depending on the type of hair you have, longer might be easier to deal with in hot, tropical, misty, rainy and scorching hot days.

If you worship your ponytail, then we would suggest starting with a slight cut and not extreme. You might be surprised how much you’ll miss having the ability to pull your hair back. Shorter hair can mean shoulder length and up. But, once it is gone, the next step is to wait.

One sure thing is, it’s not permanent. Hair always grows back. Who knows, you might just need a fresh color rather than an entire cut. Speak to your stylist for more information on what would look best.

Salon Sora’s Seal or No Deal Concealer Techniques

By | Makeup | No Comments

make up salon boca ratonTen years ago make-up and cosmetologists may have disagreed with this theory. They used to claim concealer was only good for covering dark circles and flaws. Celebrities like Khloe Kardashian and Gigi Hadid maybe sporting fresh faces, but, one thing is for sure, they aren’t afraid of using concealer for more than covering a zit. In this week’s blog, we’ll share Salon Sora’s secret weapon techniques for using a concealer that you’ll love.

First some simple tools:

•    Complexion Sponges in a variety of shapes
•    Buffing Brush
•    Angle Brush
•    Highlight Brush
•    Blending Brush
•    Boo-Boo Cover-up
•    Wonder Pencil by NYX
•    2-tubes of Concealer, one slightly darker than your skin tone and one lighter

 

While it’s not 100% necessary to have these brushes, we find that a nice variety of brushes can make the application more even and last longer. Your concealer will stretch further as well.

1.    Start with your moisturizer. Let it soak into the skin for up to 1-minute before applying any make-up.
2.    Next, use your Wonder Pencil and cover any sun spots or flaws. Depending on how dark these marks are, will depend on how much you may need to put on. Work from the center out.
3.    Powder these areas to set in.
4.    Now use your highlighting concealer (lighter than skin) apply to eyelids and inner and outer corners. Blend well.
5.    Use concealer below the eyes. This should be in the shape of a V and extends down to the tip of the nose. The old way was to cover bags only making people have the raccoon effect. Blend with your buffing brush. The closer to the eyelash line uses your finger to blend.
6.    Once you have done under your eyes, apply lighter concealer on the eyebrow bone. Lightest color above the eyebrows and below the eyebrow as a highlighter. Blend, blend, blend.
7.    You can achieve a thinner looking nose by using the concealer down the middle of the nose; this also works well on the top of your chin.
8.    Boo-Boo cream can be placed over flaws or used under the eyes. What we like about this ultra-concealer is it lasts long even during humid weather.
9.    If you want to make your lips stand out and keep your lipstick from bleeding through, line you lips with the Wonder Pencil, then use your blending brush to soften. This is excellent for people with smoker’s lines.

Once you’ve applied concealer, finish and set it with a dusting powder. Your skin will look young and refreshed. A little lipstick and mascara and you’ve got the super-sexy Salon Sora secret weapon.
