Want a Fresh Look for Spring? Consider These Trends!
Spring arrives on March 20 and, for many, a desire to freshen up one’s hair or makeup routine comes right along with it. If you’re among those who will be craving a springtime style infusion, consider giving one or more of these trends a try.
The spring/summer 2019 runways were a glorious garden of models sporting eyes, lips, cheeks (and even lashes) in shades as bright and fresh as spring flowers. Try pops of pink, yellow, lavender or spring green on eyes or lips. You can go soft and sheer or beautifully bod with unlimited combinations customizable to your comfort level. If you need help choosing the most flattering shades, don’t hesitate to chat with a Creative Images Institute artist about your options.
While it’s fun to go all out for an occasion, some days call for a subtler, less time-intensive makeup approach. The no-makeup makeup look is a springtime favorite with sheer, nude shadows on lids, nude or clear gloss on lips, and a creamy flush of blush on cheeks to add life to post-winter skin. Of course, with your complexion the center of attention, you want it to be worthy. Make an appointment with a Creative Images Institute esthetician for a custom facial or microdermabrasion treatment.
This spring’s brows are bushy, raw and real. Natural brows upstaged perfectly groomed arches on the spring/summer runways and they’re an easy look to master at home. You can create a fluffier texture by brushing brow hairs upward. Lightly fill in sparse areas with a brow powder, then set them with a clear brow mascara. If you’re not sure where to start, visit with a Creative Images Institute esthetician for a subtle eyebrow wax and advice.
Spring is a natural time to imbue your locks with light. While blonde or caramel highlights are a subtle way to transition to lighter tones for spring, those who want to go bold will find many exciting options. The spring/summer 2019 runways featured models with hair in a range of pastel hues including coral, rose-gold and pink. With highlights, lowlights and all-over color starting at as little as $30, Creative Images Institute is a great place to try out spring hair trends without spending a fortune.
Not for the faint of heart, baby bangs made an appearance on several spring/summer 2019 runways. The eye-catching micro-fringe looks fabulous with a variety of hair lengths and face shapes. However, the grow-out period will be tough, so talk solid strategy with your Creative Images Institute artist before you commit to the cut.
Maximalist Hair Accessories
Unlike bangs, hair accessories are one of the quickest ways to create on-trend hair this spring and require no maintenance of grow out time. Pile on barrettes or embellish your hairline or braid with bejeweled bobby pins. Comb your hair back and pop on a padded velvet headband. Or throw your hair into a high or low ponytail adorned with a substantial bow. If you buy a fabulous accessory and aren’t sure how to use it, just visit Creative Images Institute. Our artists offer shampoo and style, basic braids and event up-dos or styles starting at as little as $7.50 and are happy to include your accessory.
