Hollywood Ombre Highlights make a Nicole Jeffrey's Appearance

 Have you seen this new "Ombre" 
highlight trend around Hollywood? 
This look was originated to recreate a California surfer look. Sun kissed hair with a beautiful natural looking bohemian wave is it's intended style. Ombre is French for shaded. Notice the top of the hair is darker with a subtle shade difference highlighted through the bottom for a very natural feel. This highlight also provides a renewed youth to your hair to restore the days spent in the sun as a child. Normally the "grown out roots look" is not a fashion forward statement. Luckily with the Ombre technique you can blend in with Hollywood's finest.
The technique behind this new highlighting is very unique and leads to beautiful results when executed correctly. Gina, our Joice Educator and Salon Manager has practiced this technique and is spreading the Hollywood statement hair around the Greater Akron area. Get beach babe hair in North East Ohio!

 Don't go overboard with contrast. 
The beauty of the Ombre highlight is ruined with incorrect shading. 
This should still be a highlighting technique not a defined layered coloring.

Want the bohemian curl too?
Barrel curl styling will do the trick.  
 Part your hair all the way down the middle to the back. Take little pieces and work your way up to the front wrapping the hair back around the outside of the curling iron. If you choose to invest in a single barrel curler (as pictured) then you will see the best results. 
Key to the curl: Make sure your twist the hair into a small rope with your hands before wrapping around the iron for a looser  natural wave.

Halloween Hair Tricks and Treats From Nicole Jeffrey's

If you are the Princess Leia or a dead bride we can help you with your Halloween hair. From wig applications and styling, we want to help you win that costume contest! 

Here are some great 
Distinctive Halloween Hair Styles 
that will raise the dead this year. 

Pippi Long Stocking
(Or Wendy)
The styling trick is all about the coat hanger...that's right, a coat hanger
 is hidden under all that red hair to create the corky shaping and to keep it that way. 

Crazy Curlers
This is a look of all era's and can represent Marilyn Monroe's style, 
call yourself a manic Monday, or be a crazy curler lady in a night gown with the morning paper...
This is not the typical way a woman would walk out of the house
 so it makes for a fun costume because anything is allowed!  
If you don's have curlers at home you can use toilet paper or cut paper towel rolls.

Pop Star
Katy Perry and Lady Gaga 
Make it easy to mimic their crazy hair fashions with a simple spray of Pink or a Wig 
For Lady Gaga don't forget the Lashes (Available at Nicole Jeffrey's)

Be A Tease
Weather you are doing 80's glam and sporting leg warmers 
or you are an electrician with a shocking outcome. Teased hair is an easy costume style. 

Gel is used in shorter hair to assist this look.

Glam Looks 
Updo's can be as simple as a curl and as difficult as a finger wave for a 50's look. 
We can help complete your Hollywood look.

Let's Make Up a Costume This Halloween

Let us get you all dolled up for Halloween with some glamorous costume makeup. 

Would you rather strut your stuff than look like a scare?

Check Out Nicole Jeffrey's Glam Costume Make-up Ideas! 

Jersey Shore Cast 
 All drama here when it comes to colors used and don't forget the lashes!
 Makeup by: Valerie

We were missing the wig here to really make the look 
but this make-up speaks to the power and beauty Cleopatra held.
Makeup by: Valerie

Other Glamour Ideas Include:
Red red lips and dark eye liner will make this look.
Add a 50's Hollywood touch with a beauty mark.

Lady Gaga
This look depends a lot on which outfit you are trying to match
 but luckily there are a lot of options!
 The more lash the better. Good thing we have some fake lashes available.
 Pink Pucker
Electrifying Lightning Bolt
The key to any great Gaga makeup look is to really focus on the eye's.
Long lashes, possibly an extreme color and pick a shape. She is edgy, 
original, and not afraid of any makeup monstrosity. 

No tv character trumps Mimi when it comes to 
making an extreme makeup (and fashion) fopa...all the time.
It's all about the blue, and let's not forget to darken those brows.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to costume makeup.
We have some great Halloween idea's to help you pull your look together!
