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.

More Bang for your Buck

Did you catch Kelly Clarkson’s new hair cut while she preformed the National Anthem at last night’s Super Bowl? We did, and we have to say we’re impressed.

Bangs are one of the most viral trends around Hollywood A-listers and perfect for the gal who is looking for a change.

Kelly isn’t the only celebrity who is changing her look with a bang. Leighton Meister has added bangs to her style as well.

We also gave bangs to Stephanie, our makeover model from our segment with Fox 11 this morning. She loved her new cut!

5 Easy Ways to Change your Look

The New Year is here! Along with resolutions, this is the time when many people are taking steps to change their look. Whether you’re seeking a subtle or drastic makeover, you can make use of these simple tips to jump start the new year and the new you!

1) Wear lipstick. Red and pink are in this season. These colors work best with a soft, neutral eye and are the perfect way to add a little color if you don’t usually wear lipstick. Give the new trend a try. We love the Jane Iredale Lip Fixations!

2) Get a professional brow shaping. Many people tweeze their eyebrows at home and always have the same shape. Just tweaking the shape of your brows can create the difference you are looking for. This can be done in less than 15 minutes at Haven, schedule your appointment on your lunch hour or stop in on your way home from work.

3) Cut your bangs. Without loosing any length on your hair or paying for a full hair cut, you can construct a new image with a few snips. Cutting your bangs is a fast and easy way to revamp your appearance.

4) Try liquid eyeliner. It allows you to define and shape your eyes in a dramatic way. Whether you just want to look different during the day or create a drastic change between your work wardrobe and your going-out get-up, liquid eyeliner is the way to go. The Jane Iredale liquid eyeliner we carry received the Allure Editors’ Choice Award, were not kidding, this stuff rocks!

5) Accessorize! Anything from some new bling to a stylish purse in your hand can alter your look. Jewelry changes your appearance without being permanent. Do you always wear your hair back in a pony tail or straight down? Add a headband to increase the glam and amp up your look.

Are you ready to make a change? Visit one of Haven’s stylists for personal advice about eye brow shaping, bang trims, and the perfect lipstick shade for you. Make 2012 they year of you!

Do it yourself Holiday Styles

Beauchamp uses one of our favorite products, Bb Texture, to create all three of these easy styles. Pick up your own tube of Bb texture from Haven and watch the how-to video so you can create your own styles for any holiday party or night out on the town.

New York Fashion Week

The 2012 New York Fashion Week, which took place in mid-September, featured hair styles crafted by Bumble and bumble stylists with Bb products.

While some of the looks are big-city fabulous, others are practical for any day-time do. Here are some of our favorite styles as well as the “how to adapt runway to everyday” from Shape magazine.

The Look:  Mandy Coon: Effortless Glamor

The inspiration: Influenced by modern Parisian women like Carine Roitfeld, former Editor-in-Chief of French Vogue, and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, Bumble and bumble. hair stylist Rolando Beauchamp created an approachable, effortless look for the Mandy Coon Spring 2012 collection. The natural, loose waves of the hair compliment the asymmetric hemlines of the satin dresses, allowing the clothes to solely speak for themselves.

Try this trend: This look’s simplicity makes it incredibly easy to recreate for everyday wear. Start by rubbing gel throughout your hair while it’s still damp. As opposed to the glossy finish of hairspray, Beauchamp says the gel will give your hair a soft, matte look. Blow dry with a flat brush, applying a quarter size of grooming creme to your ends to help weigh them down. Next, twist random sections of hair around a 1-inch curling iron, leaving the ends out. Finish the look by using your hands to work in a texture cream that will give it that perfect undone-yet-done quality.

The Look: Lacoste: Sporty and Fresh

The inspiration: A brand known for their sporty fashion with sharp polo shirts and their iconic crocodile logo, it wasn’t hard for Philippon to decide to create a very natural hairstyle for the Lacoste Spring 2012 runway show.

Try this trend: Straight from the tennis courts to the runway. This fresh look is probably the easiest hairdo of the week to recreate. To get started, spray Bb. Prep onto your roots and then apply Surf Spray all over the head. Simply blow dry your hair with a diffuser, and refine the look by using a small comb to clean up your part.

Best hair products for the job: Bb. Prep($18), Surf Spray ($23)

The Look: Ruffian: Equestrian Royalty

The inspiration: The hairstyle for the Ruffian Spring 2012 collection returns the label to its namesake roots: one of the greatest female, thoroughbred racehorses of all time. Inspired by equestrian royalty like Charlotte Casiraghiand the jockey society, Moodie wanted to create a look that mimicked the braid of a thick horse’s tail.

Try this trend: Prep your hair with Bb. Prep and Thickening Hairspray and then apply a styling cream from roots to end. Power dry the hair and pull it back into a sleek ponytail below the occipital bone. Backcomb the ponytail and then flat iron the hair to create density. Brush it out and braid the hair into a large plait. Polish off your look by applying a finishing spray to the head to give it a bit of shine.

Best hair products for the job: Bb. Prep($18), Thickening Hairspray ($26), Styling Creme ($24), Bb. Shine On Finishing Spray($25)

These three looks are hot for 2012. Ask your Professional Bumble and bumble stylist at Haven how to master the looks at you next appointment.
