hair how to: jazz age

We discovered BHLDN when it was first launched by Anthropologie a couple years ago. If you haven't been to their website yet, run don't walk! It's a gorgeous wedding site with even more gorgeous wedding dresses and decor. We became even more obsessed when they came out with a collection of wedding day hair, which is also perfect for holiday hair! This week we will feature a hair how to a day, so make sure you keep checking back!
Channeling nightclub coifs from the Roaring Twenties this updo is pure glamour.
1. Start by applying Bb. Gel to wet hair and then draw a side part.
2. Comb hair down across the forehead and then back toward the temple, out toward the cheekbone and then back toward the ear, forming the finger wave that defines the look.
3. Dry the hair with a diffuser. Careful to not undo the finger wave.
4. Braid the ends of your hair and secure the hair into a low side chignon.
5. Tuck a hair clip in the chignon for extra glam. Finish with Spray de Mode. Pin It

hair how to: bouffant

Voluminous hair was all over the runway this season, 60's retro is definitely back in full force! We love the elegance, sexiness and whimsy of the bouffant that Bottega Veneta sent down the runway. Want to add some texturized glamour to your own fall repertoire? Follow these steps:
1. It's best to start this look on unwashed hair, if you are add some Bb. Hair Powder for to get rid of shine and add texture. If your hair is wet spray hair with Prep and then smooth Bb. Texture through your roots and ends. Blow dry hair completely dry and round brush for volume.
2. Split your hair into two sections using your fingers. The top section will begin behind your ear and move up to the crown. The bottom section will be the remaining hair.
3. Secure the top section off to the side with a clip, brush the bottom section up into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic.
4.. Take the top section and secure the front two inches of hair off to the side. With the remaining strands, tease your hair. Spray with Spray de Mode for lasting hold.
5. Take the separated top section and brush it neatly over the teased portion and towards your ponytail, making sure to smooth out the front and sides as you go.
6. Secure the top section into your ponytail with a generous spray of Spray de Mode. Roll your ponytail and top section under towards your scalp and secure hair up with pins.
7. Smooth your updo with Styling Wax and finish with a little more Spray de Mode! Pin It

Holiday Pin Tin

50 winter white styling pins (with stylist know-how to match) neatly packed in Bb. engraved tin. Limited-edition and perfect for gifting. Often compared to needles and thread by hairdressers, pins are essential style underpinnings, having played infinite - and invisible - supporting roles. That is, until the late 1990s when two Bb.Editorial Stylists "outed" the pin, sending hair down runways bedecked with visible pins, to elegant and dramatic effect. We offer this Bb. Pin tin as an homage to their ground-breaking ingenuity, and hope it inspires you.

hair how to: romantic twist updo

For the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing some of our favorite holiday styles and how-tos to help you get ready for the holidays. Also keep in mind we have a few Updo Specialists in the salon that would love to help you through all your holiday events! First up is how to recreate Lauren Conrad’s Romantic Twist updo.
1. On damp hair spray Prep all over hair. Smooth Grooming creme through your the middle and ends of your hair for shine and smoothing (this updo would also be awesome to do on second-day hair). Spray Thickening hairspray on roots and ends of hair.
2. Get hair completely dry with a blow drier.
3. Use a 1” curling iron to curl the hair. Spray with Spray de mode while curling.
4. Once the entire head is curled, secure the curls by pinning them in a woven fashion to create a style that looks loose and effortless. Once the style is achieved, lightly spray Spray de Mode for lightweight and soft, yet controlled, hold. Pin It

hair how to: high ponytail

We love this high ponytail on Nicole Richie. It's super chic and great when you're in a rush! Here's how you can get this look at home:
1. On dry hair pull a mohawk section of your hair and leave out. Pull the rest of your hair into a super high pony on your crown with a bungee or elastic.
2. Take the mohawk section of the hair you left out and lightly shake to let a face-framing fringe (bangs) fall.
3. Separate the remaining hair into 2 sections on both sides of the head. One at a time, wrap the sections around the pony. Pin and secure with pins to hide the elastic.
4. Smooth flyaways and set the ponytail with a light mist of Spray de Mode hairspray. Add some red carpet worthy shine with Shine Spray. Pin It

Our New York Trip

As you probably have heard all the stylists at Salon K had the opportunity to go to Bumble and bumble University in New York City. It was an amazing experience and we all came back motivated, inspired and ready to use our razors!

Our first day of school picture!

Learning from the best!

Testing the haircuts our for ourselves on live models!

It was also a great way for our team to bond and build relationships. We created a nice little salon family!
