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.

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!

Let Me Be Blunt, Blonde, and Bob with You in January 2017

By | Hair Color, Hair Styles | No Comments

blondIt seems that almost any of the hair stylists we’ve spoken with are all leaning toward three dazzling looks for January 2017. Blunt, Blonde, and Bobbed hair is sweeping fashion magazines globally, and while these are not for everyone, they can certainly freshen up your New Year with a whole new way to be daring. Here are the reasons why.

Let’s talk about blunt bangs and cuts. If you’re not ready for a long-term commitment such as taking your long locks and going rogue with a pixie cut, then we’ve got just the solution. Try out a Salon Sora Blunt Bang or Blunt cut that allows you to have a slightly different look but allows you to keep some length which is a much easier transition than going from long to short. A word of caution for blunt bangs. These will grow out, but not everyone likes them. Consult with your stylist for the best solution and ask for their honest opinion. Your stylist wants you to be happy long after you leave the salon so they can assist you in finding just the right cut, color, etc., that you can manage and maintain.

Now that we’ve covered the bluntness let’s talk about the blondness. Today’s blonde isn’t just about bleached hair. There are several different shades of blonde from golden blondes to platinum and every hue or tone in between. While not everyone can pull off a blonde color, most can with the right shades and highlights. Let your new year be met with stunning highlights that frame the face. Or you can pop some champagne while discussing your decision to go silver and purple. Don’t be afraid of becoming a blonde bombshell; we hear its quite fun and a super alluring color for one seven!

What about Bob? Not the movie, the hair style!! Bobs are never out, there are just a few modifications to wearing them. The lob is seemingly phasing out with more of an even cut all away around. No longer layers draping down the front with a shorter back. The year 2017 is bringing in more balance with the styles that are seen on the runway and in magazines such as Elle.

No matter what the look is you’re trying to achieve our stylists are here to help. We’ve got just the right shade, cut, and design that you’ll love all year round.

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.

Sexy, Silver Hair for the Mysterious Women of Salon Sora

By | Hair Color | No Comments

Wedding-Up-do“Let the Rain Kiss You. Let the Rain Beat Upon Your Head with Silver Liquid Drops. Let the Rain Sing You a Lullaby”. Langston Hughes

Gray hair used to be for only the elderly. Unlike the mindset from yesteryear, Salon Sora has found that using silver and black together can create some of the most alluring tones that look fantastic on just about any skin tone. Silver is the new black and lets me tell you; it’s stunning when paired with blues, pinks, and even purples. Here’s the breakdown on how you can picture yourself with stunning and sexy silver hair.

First, let’s talk about the lightest silver. These super bright shades blend well with dark roots but are an excellent choice for women with blonde to platinum hair. If you’ve got hazel eyes, this is a ‘must try’ since the gray is ultra-chic and will make your eyes pop, no matter what color they decide they are.

For the ladies with the short and sassy cuts try a dark brown or black charcoal with silver highlights to spring into action. This style isn’t for the weak at heart, but, for those brave enough to sport it. It’s all in the way your feel.

For the fashionista’s out there, we love to see this look mixed with a rainbow of color options. Greens, turquoise, and even purple is a stunning look that matches every stitch of your wardrobe. Ask your stylist for pictures and examples to get an idea of how this color combination screams for your head!

If you remember, Olympic medalist Ryan Lochte had this super-hot look while in Brazil. While we won’t get into Lochte’s misbehavior, we will tell you that men make this color look debonair and distinguished. Celebrities and superstars are making this color a remarkable choice for anyone wanting to walk on the edge.

They may call it “granny hair” but what it truly is, is special. Color with shine takes the platinum blonde to a whole new level with the many different varieties to wear this color. It depends on you and whether you want to lean more toward light and white or dark and bluesy. The other part of having gray hair is that it looks fab on short or long. It’s your doo!

Want to get extra spunky? Mix in lilac, cherry and blue for a unique blend. This creation is magnificent and oh-so-classy.

Whether you go with a light or dark version of this stunning color, you’ll be more than the life of the party; you’ll be unforgettable.

Six Sinful Hair Colors for Fall 2016 – Salon Sora Style

By | Hair Color | No Comments

gallery-img6Fall can be one of the most exciting times of the year. For many of you who took time off or were on vacation for the summer, it’s enlightening to see the beachy hairstyles being blown out with the warm breeze. Now that we’ve stepped into fall you may be ready for a fresh new look to help transition from the sun-kissed hair to the hair that hugs with a warm, inviting embrace. This blog we uncover some of the sultry looks that come straight from Boca’s favorite hairstylists at Salon Sora.

If you think of cherries and pumpkin in autumn, you’re on the right track. Rather than sporting the bleached blonde hair try to a transition to a variety of highlights and lowlights gleaming with baby blondes. Or go with gorgeous, deep cherry and autumn leaves as a revitalized look. An absolute must try for almost any skin tone.

Peaches for free! If you love the strawberry blonde tones and hues, then you will die for this peach look that’s sweeping the nation. Of course, this looks great on people with pale skin, that works pretty well with a tan, making it a super-color for Boca Raton and South Floridians.

It seems that the Millennials have taken gray to a whole new level. Some of the most gorgeous black and white tones sported by even some very young ages. These smoky colors go from charcoal to light gray highlights giving this look one that’s ultra-chic. Silver hues are turning heads no matter what the age. We just love this new look; that’s ready to pop!

Hair strobing is something you may want to try while we’re falling back. These colors are a supernatural effect that is carefully thought out by your hairdresser and you. The highlighting technique is strategically placed by mapping the shape of the face, the skin tone and the best placement of where the highlight should go. Incredibly beautiful results that look all-natural.

Of course, the sirens will go off with the warm autumn reds that are out right now. Be cautious with reds because they fade the quickest. It’s best to consult your salon professional for the best shade of red for you. That is if you want the love of your life crawling back for more!

Don’t forget for our Latina’s out there with those extremely dark hair colors to add some neon to them. The trick here is to put in a few streaks of electric blue or bubble-gum pink to show off that sexy and fun side. You’ll love the compliments and attention without a doubt.

These are just a few of the trends that we see around town and what people are requesting. As usual, it’s best to consult your stylist for more ideas.
