The latest hair trends include a variety of the most sought-after styles seen in runway shows, on celebrities, and of course, on popular Hairstylists. One thing is for sure, when it comes to popular Hair Color choices, styles and looks are getting bolder, allowing more creativity to suit the individual. That said, bold color selections are nothing new. Rather, it is the actual placement of color that is makes a statement. The traditional Hi-lite will always be in style, but adding bold color choices provide range from subtle to avant-garde, suiting anyone’s taste.
Salon Boutique Academy Educator Anthony Martinez states “Ombre hair is still very popular, but this season adds an unexpected twist… it’s now being reversed. This new trend features blonde or lighter color towards the root, with a darker color towards the bottom. This new reverse ombre adds a fun, new dimension and can also be done with bold colors.”
So, while you are adding color to your Spring wardrobe, step outside your comfort zone and add a splash of color to your hair. You will be sure to turn a few heads!

Would you like to have smooth, beautiful skin? Taking proper care of your skin by cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing with proper ingredients is the first step. Selecting the right products can be a daunting task considering the large number of mass-retailed skin care products on the market. We highly suggest making the selection process much simpler by visiting an Esthetician and receiving a skin care consultation. During your visit, a skin care professional will analyze your skin and use their knowledge of ingredients to suggest the best results-driven products for your needs. During the visit, they will also suggest treatments and services that can be partnered with a home care regimen to enhance your skin results.
Treat your skin to the newest skincare innovation around…Dermasound! A Dermasound treatment will exfoliate, hydrate, lift and tighten sluggish skin. Another great skincare experience offered at SBA is our customized chemical peel. Peels can reduce the appearance of fine lines, acne, dryness and uneven pigmentation. Peels enhance the smooth texture of your skin by removing the damaged and dead outer layers of the skin. Estheticians select peel formulas based on each client’s skin care needs. If you are interested in clear, radiant skin, please call Salon Boutique Academy to schedule a complimentary skin care consultation.
Last week we focused on color, including Ombre, hands down the hottest trend for the past few years. This week, however, cutting has taken center stage. Bobs and pixies, double cuts and layers, we have a talented group of students that are dedicated to learning a new craft.
It’s inspiring how much they absorb in the classroom and how eager they are to get on the salon floor and test themselves. Sometimes it works, sometimes not so much, but every time they get behind a mannequin is a valuable learning experience. Likewise, every success builds confidence for when they finally get to stand behind a real world client. Every snip, every set is a step closer to becoming a professional. Every color, every cut is an investment in their future.
We tell students “a color change can be exciting, but a great cut can be life changing.” That’s what we’re all about, at Salon Boutique Academy and the greater beauty biz… changing lives.
Frizzy, unruly hair can cause constant challenges for both men and women. Chemical straightening systems that were big in the 2000s’ have been scrutinized over the past several years for containing hazardous ingredients. Although some clients prefer the permanency of straightening systems, many others are simply looking for added control while maintaining the versatility of being able to style hair in a wavy or straight manner. Pravana’s Perfection Smooth Out provides a solution to clients seeking that control and versatility without the concern about, or exposure to, harmful ingredients.
The Pravana Perfection Smooth Out Treatment is an in-salon service that results in manageable hair for 8 – 12 weeks. The service has no caustic smell and the product will gradually fade from the hair, leaving no line of demarcation between the treated hair and new growth. This treatment may be used on color treated hair, although we recommend the treatment prior to a color application. Men and Women seeking to control curls and a reduce frizz are encouraged to try this service.
This service will be available at Salon Boutique Academy beginning October 2012. Please contact us for more information or to schedule a service: 214-263-3276. Our full service menu can be viewed here.
