The Chignon Bun you Can Do Yourself

After attending Advanced Styling with Jon Reyman at the Aveda Institute of Milwaukee Haven stylist Lindsey Grawitch came back to share that she had learned two handfuls of awesome new techniques.

We are so excited that Lindsey was fortunate to be trained under Jon Reyman, Artistic Director to the Aveda Academy New York, because he is a hair rockstar. Having designed shows in New York, Miami, London, Seoul, and Toyko some of Reyman’s celebrity clients include Caroline Herra, Oscar de la Renta, Ralph Lauren and Perry Ellis. Reyman has also been featured in Vogue, GQ, Cosmopolitan, and Harper’s Bazaar. With a resume like this there is no denying how great the styles will be that Reyman teaches.After the class, Lindsey told us, “this class was inspiring and it was an honor to work with someone so knowledgeable and influential in the industry.”

We are thrilled that as prom and wedding season is arriving we have so many trendy, fashion forward styles to wow our guests with.

There are two myths about special occasion styles we disagree with: 1) they don’t have to be the usual curls that are pinned up, 2) they are not just for special occasions.

One of Lindsey’s favorite styles from the class is a chignon bun. Lindsey tells why this look is great, “the bun is versatile, working in all hair types, and it’s extremely simple to do.” It combines the classic elegance that a bride is looking for with the hot trends of 2012. Better yet, you can do it yourself!

Watch as Lindsey shows how easy this chignon bun is and then reveals how its perfect for a wedding, prom, a night out, or just a day at the beach.

On the Catwalk

After the wrap up of NY Fashion Week, fashion is still on the forefront of many minds. While not all of the looks that were presented in NY last week are realistic for busy moms, business professionals, and chic women in Wisconsin, the Go Red for Women Spring Fashion Show at Macy’s will model looks that can perfectly move from the runway to your wardrobe.

Macy’s will be styling all of the models, both male and female from child to adult. Because each look is coming directly from Macy’s you can be guaranteed it will be a realistic match for your spring closet. Haven’s owner Lisa and her daughter Kaela will both be models in the show. They’ve had a sneak peak at some of the outfits and promise they are exciting and perfect for spring!

And the part were most excited about for the show — Haven will be styling the hair of each model. Prepare to be dazzled as we reveal some of the styles were most excited about for spring. Along with day time, business, and night time looks for men and women, children will also be styled. With prom right around the corner we will also be sharing updo’s that are different than your average prom updo.

The fashion show begins at 12:30 in the Fox River Mall directly in front of Macy’s. Donations are requested for the first 200 people who would like to secure seating. All proceeds benefit the American Heart Association, fighting to end heart disease and stroke, our Nation’s number 1 and 3 leading causes of death.

The first 100 people who donate to the American Heart Association will also receive a SWAG bag, including a $20 gift certificate for a first time salon or spa experience at Haven.

Join us tomorrow at 12:30 to watch the Go Red For Women Spring Fashion  Show at Macy’s. Wear your red and remember if you choose to donate to the American Heart Association you could receive a gift certificate to Haven.

See you at the catwalk!

All about the Mess

New York fashion week brought new styles to the runway and gave onlookers tips for this season’s upcoming trends. One trend that we keep noticing is that a lot of the hair styles is all about the mess and LOTS of hairspray.

Watch as Bb. editorial stylist Jordan M shares how they created the trend for Katya Leonovich’s designs.
