Golden Globes 2015: The Looks We Loved

January 12, 2015

Award show season is here, and with it, a fresh batch of star-studded looks straight from the red carpet. Last night’s Golden Globe Awards ushered in a sea of apple-red, intricate black lace, and body-skimming gowns, as well as a noticeable return to classic Hollywood beauty “moves.” Think dramatic waves to rival equally dramatic eyes, matte red lips, and enviable haircuts. Our favorite looks from the evening, listed below, are simply meant to inspire our own hair/styling routines — or if you’re feeling a bit gutsy (and are currently sporting long hair), it might just be time to try the “the chop” á la Sienna Miller. Just sayin’.

Amy Adams 

When we think Old Hollywood glamour-turned-modern day beauty, Amy Adams tops our list. For the Globes, makeup artist Stephen Sollitto chose a subtle champagne-meets-copper eye to complement her soft waves and ice blue Atelier Versace gown.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Love her or hate her, she knows how to make her mark. This time, it’s in cotton-candy pink with a low-key twist. Unlike her more iconic pink moment — in pale pink Ralph Lauren at the 1999 Oscars — Paltrow’s Michael Kors gown was a sportier version of sexy, a silhouette that her stylist David Babaii highlighted with ’70s hair: straight from the crown to the jawline, and then perfectly undone, loose curls to finish.

Viola Davis

Davis rarely makes the wrong move on the red carpet, case in point. Not only was her ruby-tinged Donna Karan gown a source of bold color choice, her eyes and lips also proved to be statement-worthy. The juxtaposition of shimmer-y mauve eyeshadow and classic red lip resulted in one seriously glamorous look.

Sienna Miller

This British beauty tied for Best Dressed and Best Haircut of the night — at least in our books. If ever there were real-time motivation to go for “the chop,” this would be it. Her barely-there makeup, courtesy of makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, allowed us to focus on the gorgeous embellishments of her Miu Miu gown and, of course, that ridiculously awesome bedhead bob.

Emma Stone

Stone knows how to wear dramatic looks with ease. Chanel makeup artist Rachel Goodwin not only emphasized the redhead’s feline eyes with a smokey cat eye, she also paired it with a soft berry-hued lip and tousled waves. It’s one-part dressed up, one-part just-woke-up, and we love it.

7 Hairstyles to Wear to Graduation (Even With a Cap on!)

May 13, 2014

It’s almost that time of year where you can belt out from the proverbial rooftop, “School’s out forever!,” and really mean it… at least for a few months. And if the next step in end-of-school-year festivities involves a cap and gown for you, then let SALON by milk + honey help you out in the “hat hair” department. Opt for a style that’s both polished and youthful, and most importantly, looks good with a cumbersome cap/mortar board on top.

Below, a handful of ideas to get the hair-spiration going. We’re here to make your grad day even more stylish.

Emma Stone’s Side Braid – a hint of volume, texture, and who doesn’t love a side braid?

Do You Color Your Hair? Have You Tried the Ammonia-Free Organic Color System?

March 7, 2014

1391771_10151907565279464_853586749_n

What makes the Organic Color System different from the rest? Our Organic Master Colorist, Kelli, has the answers.

This ammonia-free, oil-based color line will exceed your expectations while keeping your hair healthy and shiny. Kelli has been using the line almost exclusively for four years. She began her career at the Sassoon Academy and has worked as an educator for several color lines.

So, what exactly made her stick with Organic Color after 15 years in the industry? Simply put: no ammonia. After becoming a color specialist, she felt fatigued and was having a hard time with the ammonia smell that’s found in many color lines. While doing some research, she came across the Organic Color System and was thrilled to see what great results they offer without the use of ammonia. Since this fateful discovery, Kelli has become a certified educator for the brand. Her favorite thing about the Organic System is that it works for everyone. The color is shiny, there’s less fading, and it works great on all hair types. Win-win.

Now Trending: The Bob

January 13, 2014

If last year’s hair craze was “the lob” — that’s a long short bob, in case you were wondering — then 2014 is already all about the bob. It’s chic, shapes/sculpts your face, and let’s face it, it’s one of the easier hair lengths to manage on a day-to-day basis. You can do an edgier cut (blunt layers), a softer one (reminiscent of a 1920s flapper bob), or have a little more fun with it and add some ombré while you’re at it.

Look to the most recent slew of celebrities to go short and blunt for proof of its now-trending popularity.

There’s also Michelle Dockery of ‘Downton Abbey,’ Lena Dunham, Elisabeth Moss of ‘Mad Men,’ and Kat Graham of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ doing it too.

Are you feeling the bob? With the New Year-new you resolutions and attitude set into motion, this is the time to experiment. Translation: chop it all off. And we’ve got just the place for you to do it…

Hair Across America: Fall’s Top Color and Cut Trends

From Lily Kwong and Lena Dunham both chopping it all off—Lily to a bob, Lena to a pixie—in the midst of New York Fashion Week to brunette Erika Bearman’s (aka OscarPRGirl’s) radical turn as an ice blonde just last week, change is in the air this fall. We checked in with some of the top salons across the country to find out what style and color trends are turning heads this season.­

AUSTIN, TX
The Salon: Salon by milk + honey
The Look: Red
“Everyone’s going red this season. Even my blonde clients are going auburn and chestnut,” says stylist Amanda Lee. “Depending on how bold the client wants to be, I’ll pick three shades that are really close to each other in level, but vary the tone—for example, a red-red, a copper red, and a mahogany red. Then I’ll section out the hair and apply the tones in a blocking pattern. When the hair falls, you see all three colors simultaneously but can’t tell where they’re coming from. The effect is really soft and dimensional.”
