Rose-Gold, Iced Tea, Pink Champagne, Lavender Sorbet…mouth-watering, stone-washed hair-color is all the rage right now…and it’s trendy but  not-to-trendy at the same time.

Celeb’s like Sienna Miller, Blake Lively and the Olsen twins are rocking the new hair color trends known as rose-gold.  The new tonal trend is something that was the offspring of last years bright, vivid colors like lavender, teal, peach, pink and red. This year, the extreme color takes a backseat and subtle, more sheer versions are in the drivers seat.

These stone-washed hues are for those of us who are a little hesitant to turn our entire heads a vivid color but want to dabble in the bright, hair-color trends  and continue turning heads” says Leah Carlson, owner of La La Luxe Salon.

Not everyone wants to just throw purple all over their hair..but most of our clients and  like to try out trends. This is a way of trying it out without diving in”, explains Leah Carlson. “Adding a wash of lavender or a hint of peach or rose-gold is perfect for bumping up the tone of your everyday hue.  Some of these tints wash out in a week while some are permanent. It all depends on how long you want to wear it.”

So why is rose-gold so popular among all of the stone-washed hues?

“Rose-gold can be worn by anyone…and I mean anyone. It’s a universally flattering color. It enhances the warmth in any skin tone yet the coolness of the rose actually can down-play redness in the skin.” Carlson says.  ”Warmer washes of color are created with a stylist glazing your hair. If you have highlights, your highlights will appear glossier and shiny. If your hair is dark, you’ll definitely notice a deep shine in the hair that sparkles in different lights.”

Stylists Jamie Millmather, Ambur Gill and Heidi Dias recently attended a Wella color class in Boston that showcased all of these new hair-coloring trends…so book an appointment today with one of them so that you can get on board for the spring/summer! Why not stay fresh and modern? XO

We are SO honored to be able to present to you a sample from a collection of photo’s showcasing a load of talent delivered by a 3-headed monster consisting of Corey Grayhorse, John Alves, Leah Carlson and the team at La La Luxe Salon (Emily Johnston, Ambur Gill and Savanna Osborne).  Most of the fashion seen here was designed by local designer and friend, Nick Pini (@nickpini). Hair was styled by Leah Carlson, Ambur Gill and Savanna Osborne.  Makeup was done by Leah Carlson.

Carlson and Grayhorse’s concept for the shoot was to create a sense of glorious change as we shift from winter into spring.

The hair was styled in a conservatively beautiful approach using Bumble and bumble Brilliantine for shine and smoothness and then finished off with Bumble and Bumble Shine-On for extreme sheen that mimiced the brightness of the sun.  Make-up was “undone” and very minimalist using MAC Cosmetics Strobe Cream on the cheekbones, nose and lips for that glow-from-within. Eyes were stained with a little rose-gold eyeshadow and everything was finished off with a little pop of tomato-red on the lips.

The result of this collaboration? A series of photos that make everyone feel a little warmer and happier. Join us as we let go of the cold and embrace the sweet, bright and beautiful vulnerability that spring brings to us. Enjoy! XO
