Easy D.I.Y. Date Night Styles for Any Occasion

Whether a thrilling night out on the town here in South Florida or a cozy evening binge-watching your favorite series on the couch, date night is the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Such an occasion certainly warrants a little something extra when it comes to your style. You've probably already got the perfect ensemble in mind, but what about your hair? Consider these simple D.I.Y. styles to spice up your next date night:

Face Framing Curls Hair Style

Face Framing Curls

Last minute dinner date and no time for an appointment with your favorite Inscape stylist? Have no fear - this updo only looks ornate. To pull off this style, simply part your hair as normal and gather the length of your hair at the nape of the neck. Secure this low pony with simple black or brown elastic hair tie. Pull out a few strands that frame your face and curl them with a medium barrel curling iron for instant glamour when there’s simply no time to hit your local Davie hair salon.

Loose Waves

Loose beachy waves give off the ultimate romantic vibe regardless of the length of your locks. To get the look in a flash, pull your hair into a ponytail. Take your favorite curling wand and curl only the pieces that fall below your elastic band. This trick ensures that your waves are loose and evenly dispersed throughout your head.

The Side Flip

Looking for an even simpler style that still oozes sensuality? Wash and dry your strands as usual and brush them thoroughly. Part your hair in its normal place, then bend forward and flip your hair to the opposite side of your head. This creates intense volume and looks fabulous on everyone.

The Messy Bun with Faux Fringe

Tired of the same old look but not ready to commit to a trendy fringe? Pile your hair on top of your head and create a high, messy bun. Pull the ends of your strands through the bun towards your forehead. The ends as they reach your forehead will resemble a blunt bang, without ever stepping foot in your favorite South Florida hair salon.

Messy Braid

If you have longer strands, consider switching up your date night look with a messy braid. Gather the length of your hair and pull it off to one side. Braid the hair that falls at the nape of your neck all the way down the remaining length of your locks. Secure the braid with a basic hair tie and then gently tug at the sides of the braid to give it a less polished, more romantic allure.

Smooth and Sleek

Achieving a smooth and sleek look may prove to be a more difficult task for those with natural waves or curls but this hairdo is soft and touchable making it ideal for date night. Section your hair into small pieces and then use a flat iron to eliminate any waves, curls or frizz. Part your hair slightly to the side and finish with a lightweight serum to enhance softness and add subtle shine.

Embellished

Regardless of your typical style, you can truly transform your hair by adding a simple accessory. A flower, a glitzy clip or even a sophisticated bow instantly takes your hair from day to night.

Recreate the Look: How to Ask Your Stylist for These Popular Styles

Browsing through your Instagram feed, it happens: you see a hairstyle that captivates your inner fashionista. After a week of studying this new ‘do, you officially decide it looks perfect from every angle and you simply have to have it. You book an appointment at Inscape Beauty Salon and count the minutes until it arrives. At last, you find yourself seated in a plush salon chair and gleefully present a photo to your stylist. Your stylist studies it and instantly translates the style into a slew of technical terms. Rest assured, experienced stylists can always explain these terms. However, understanding this hair-specific lingo and being prepared with photos can certainly help you feel at ease before undergoing a drastic change:

Bob with Bangs

There are endless types of bobs, however, and it is important to understand which one you are seeking. Inverted bobs will leave the locks in front drastically longer than the back while a “lob” is a cut that leaves your hair at around shoulder length. To get the trendiest bob style, ask your stylist for precise, blunt lines and includes a heavy, equally blunt fringe.

Long Pixie

This year, the long pixie is all the rage and for a good reason: it requires very little maintenance and looks fantastically chic. To recreate the modern pixie look, ask your stylist for an asymmetrical undercut with tapered edges and long, layered bangs.

Taylor-swift-shag-hairstyle

The New 70’s Shag

To get the look, ask your stylist for plenty of soft (not choppy) layers. The 70's shag generally had a length that extended to the collarbone but the more subtle, contemporary twist leaves plenty of room for a customized length. To complete the shaggy ‘do, advise your stylist to cut wispy bangs that graze the eyebrows but are longer towards the sides of the face.

Color Melt

We've all seen it taking over Pinterest and Instagram: the impeccable hair color that almost imperceptibly showcases three different hues. You can’t quite tell where one starts and the next begins, but it isn't an ombre, a balayage or a sombre. This trend is known as a color melt. Unlike the previously mentioned color trends, color melting consists of three different shades. If you want to recreate this look, ask your stylist to subtly blend three different hues in the same color family.

Curtain Fringe

Bangs are back! This year the focus is on the curtain fringe which is a much more low-commitment look than the blunt bangs noted over the last few years. Ask your stylist to cut your fringe the shortest where you part your hair and angle them down subtly on each side.

Rose Brown

Blondes had all of the fun last year with the rose gold trend, but rose brown is rising in popularity. To achieve this highly sought after hue, being armed with a photo is key as the intensity of the color can vary greatly. In either case, this shade is achieved by mixing bleach with brown and red shades.

Copper Reds

Copper red hues are having a moment in a big way. From muffled down strawberry blondes to full on fiery red, the key to nailing this style all comes down to the tone. If you’re aiming for a copper red color, stress the importance of adding warmth to the color to attain the latest trends red.

celebrity-hairstyle-icy-blonde

Icy Blonde

Daydreaming about long platinum strands? Platinum is here to stay and it’s cooler than ever. Icy blonde hair features no brassy hues, making it more reminiscent of white hair than of honey blonde shades. This transformation, depending on your base color, may take some time. Be sure to advise your stylist that you are seeking a cool-toned white blonde and again, pictures are worth a thousand words when it comes to re-creating a hairstyle.

margot-robbie-au-naturel-hairstyle

Au Naturel

One of the biggest trends of 2018 from the posh runways to busy streets is embracing individuality. If you want to own your natural locks, this doesn’t mean you have to skip the salon. Instead, ask your stylist for a trim and rejuvenating treatment to improve the health, texture or manageability of your organic style.

Summer Hair Trends in Fashion Hotspots: Miami, New York and Los Angeles

Each year, Fashion Week events in Paris, Milan, London and New York set the pace for emerging trends in the prestige world of designer fashion, premium cosmetics and lavish hair. These cutting-edge styles influence everyone from Instagram moguls to A-list celebrities and the rest of the world quickly follows suit. While not everyone is bold enough to pull off the neon orange eyeliner or ultra-couture gowns, the hair styles spotted on these runways are surprisingly practical. From Miami to Los Angeles, the fashion hotspots across the U.S. are offering their own twist on these fresh-off the runway hair trends:

Miami

No city in the world does summer quite like Miami. With pool parties galore, endless sunshine and beautiful beaches, it comes as no surprise that Miami hair salons have their own take on the hair styles spotted on fashion runways. Here, humidity often plays a key role in the style that fashionistas opt to wear during the summer months. Fortunately, hair salons in Florida have embraced one of the most notable hair trends as seen in Paris and Milan: embracing individuality. Instead of trying to tame wild curls or waves, many fashion-savvy individuals in Miami are sporting more natural locks. This means tousled beachy waves and loose natural curls are all the rage. For a day at the beach, a low-slung ponytail embellished with a thin ribbon or a simple halo braid embrace the latest fads while helping to beat the heat. As for color, harsh ombres appear to be on their way out while more natural balayage and baby light styles are taking the center stage throughout each Florida hair salon.

New York

New York City is one of the great fashion capitals of the world. Although runway shows in the city draw in jetsetters from the opposite ends of the globe, there is a substantial difference between hair styles that are popular on the runway and ones that are raved about on the busy city streets. Much like in Miami, the styles that hone in on simplicity are key for the summer of 2018. Chin length bobs, finger waves and adding a small amount of product to embrace the natural texture of hair are all top choices for beauty icons. For the more daring fashion enthusiasts, neon hair tones ranging from yellow to blue are also still seeing an influx of interest after their bold presence at the Jeremy Scott fashion show earlier this year.

Los Angeles

For a destination most commonly identified by the outside world by its laid-back vibe, Los Angeles’ top summer hair trends are surprisingly more complex than those in other regions. One of the hottest trends in L.A. for the summer is a haircut which has been dubbed “the French girl” cut. A classic bob cut to lip length and paired with short, blunt bangs, dozens of celebrities have been seen sporting this minimal maintenance hairdo in recent months. This is still L.A., however, and beachy waves, big curls and otherwise textured hair still has its place in 2018. When it comes to color, L.A. is following suit with top Florida hair salons and perfecting subtle sun-kissed balayage and baby lights methods.

From Miami to L.A., the summer of 2018 is full of trendy styles that can accommodate any personal flair. Contemplating a chic new cut or color? Book an appointment with one of our trendsetting stylists right here in Davie, Florida.
