The Colors of Summer

Now that The Glam Squad Salon is up and running, we have been getting so many phone calls about scheduling appointments for coloring. A large majority of these appointments being focused on applying lighter tones to the hair for the hotter summer months. Rather than an all over color change however, we have been creating the ever so popular balayage and ombre looks. These summer hair trends that we are seeing are so much fun that I couldn’t resist to sharing some of my favorites that have come out of the salon as well as some of the trends that I’m hoping to see Dana creating very soon.


Ombre hair has been a trend since 2013, and if summer of 2017 is any indication, the style isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. For those of you who don’t know exactly what the style entails, it is the gradual blending of one color hue to another, usually moving tints and shades from light to dark, the darker tones being closer to the roots. 


For some people though, the ombre style is too much of a color commitment and change from their normal hair color which is why a lot of people are opting for the balayage look instead. Rather than such a stark color change from dark to light, the balayage style sweeps lighter colors in a freehanded technique throughout the hair. Swatches of hair are sectioned and hand painted throughout the hair to create a uniformed and defined lighter look! 


Another huge trend that we have been seeing in the salon is color melting and to be honest this might be one of my very looks that have been leaving the salon. This technique allows for stylists to use multiple tones of color to create a seamless look from root to end. This style is very similar to balayage but allows for a more fluid movement of the colors throughout the hair. 

What all these styles have in common however is that they are all the lightening of hair tones versus a shift to darker colors that you typically see towards the winter months. However with this warm weather everyone seems to feel inspired to move towards a lighter gradient of color and golden hues as we see the golden rays of the sun shining a little bit more 


Among all of these lighter tones though, we have definitely seen some fun colors leave the salon, one being in the shade of the Glam Squad’s very own bright hot pink, and just the other day Dana created a bright teal mermaid look which you might have seen on our instagram story!

But what I hope to see very soon is a color that is extremely on trend right now and very popular…..grey! I know it seems a little crazy to think about but if done well this can look absolutely amazing and gives you something a little different than the style and color you are used to rocking. When I first heard about this trend and saw it, I wasn’t that big of a fan, because lets face it, at my age you are dying your hair to get rid of the grey, not to enhance! However I have grown to love it just a little bit more as I’ve seen girls absolutely rocking it during these past few months!
