DSquared2’s fall/winter campaign features Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid with some amazingly voluminous hair. Their Dolly Parton-esque looks ooze 60’s glamour and pays homage to cowgirls with volume for days.
Hairstyles of history can provide inspiration and insights into what looks can span the decades. They can tell you why certain looks have remained timeless… including big hair. Dolly Parton rocked the look and continues to, and now Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid look fabulous in this campaign.
DSquared2 describes the look and campaign video: “Somewhere off a highway in the mid-West, a duo of bad girl honeys check-in to a motel room; their high hair swinging over the collar of their check shirts. They call up their guys for an in-room party.”
At the very least this VA-VA-Volume can be attributed to the great Dolly Parton. Thanks Dolly, for your fantastic big hair!

Gone are the days of hair being forced to be straight and smooth. Japanese straightening treatments permanently alter the hair’s structure. Instead, Keratin treatments create a healthy protein layer around the hair shaft. This smoothes the cuticle and makes the hair smoother, softer and manageable. But that’s not all Keratin Smoothing can do. Here are 6 amazing benefits of these incredible smoothing treatments.
Smoothing benefits last 3-5 months.
Brazilians are another type of hair smoothing treatment, but it can clog the scalp and only lasts 3 months. On the other hand, Keratin smoothing contains less harsh chemicals and silicones and lasts 3-5 months.
It has a deep conditioning effect.
Keratin treatments add a protein layer around the hair shaft and in turn smoothes the cuticle. This enhances moisture balance and controls static. This deep conditioning effect provides shine, softness and frizz control.
It contains chemicals and silicones that are less harsh and have minimal fumes.
Now, here’s where we need to get specific. Not all keratin treatments are created equal. Keratin treatments use less harsh chemicals than a Brazilian, but it is Keratherapy that has fewer fumes than its keratin competitors. Fewer fumes mean happier clients and a happier you.
There is no demarcation line as hair grows out.
Keratin treatments seal the cuticle instead of changing the hair structure. Hair grows out naturally without that awful demarcation line. In fact, it extends the life of colored hair.
The continuum of keratin treatments allows for curl calming control.
Keratin treatments also calm curl… the stronger the treatment the stronger the curl reduction. The great thing is that you have control over this. Keratherapy has a continuum of treatment so that you can choose which treatment is right for your client. Maybe your client wants the smoothing effect without losing their curl, that is a need that can be met by these incredible treatments.
Hair proteins are built back up after being stripped over time.
By sealing the cuticle, keratin treatments prevent breakage, rebuilds damaged hair, promotes elasticity, protects from heat, and mends split ends.
Does this all sounds too good to be true? I’ll prove it to you. Attend our Keratherapy certification class and see the transformational power of Keratin treatments.
Rockville, Maryland based hairstylist Megan Schipani created a new haircolor trend inspired by blackberries! Schipani is no stranger to creating food-related hair colors, she was the colorist behind the peanut butter- and jelly-inspired hair color on Instagram a few months ago.
“My client came in telling me that she was a busy mom who needed low-maintenance color that was still fun. The day before her appointment, I had received a few packages of a new direct-dye line and knowing that my client was in the market for purples, it just clicked,” Schipani told Allure magazine.
Though she considers the end result of this look to be low maintenance, the technique to achieve it wasn’t. Schipani spent around eight hours lightening her client’s hair with a balayage technique, making sure to lighten only the strands that would be covered in purple. Once she created the perfect level 8 blonde-balayage base, she applied Purple color with a hint of Blue over the blonde.
In a video that colorist Caitlin Ford posted, at first glance the client’s hair (shown on a side view), looks like a rocker-style mohawk. But take a closer peek and you’ll see a piece of clear, crescent-shaped plexiglass holding the hair in place. This is a color board Ford created to show how the rules of elevation and direction apply to color placement. “I like this method because it allows me to better visualize where all of my colors are going to fall in the finished result. I also like that I can take bigger sections during the application, so I can move a little faster with it,” she says.
Some of most incredible hair transformations I’ve ever seen!
…the combination of balayage and biodegradable glitter!
The oddest trend this summer has to be the return of glitter. Not since the 90s has the sparkly accent of hair (and body) been so popular on social media, at festivals, and with celebrities. One enterprising stylist pondered what would happen if she applied glitter with balayage technique in a hair gel base and the results are surprisingly interesting.
Asteria Salon’s Danielle Wade is *blessing us* with her new “glitter balyage” technique. It’s called “glitterage” and WE WANT IT NOW. ???
